Spencer and Mary Aten. local reporters; Karl Bowman, athletic editor: Ernest Titus, alumni editor; Philip WhUcomb, ex change editor; B. E. Crane, acedemy editor: Daisy Monroe.' literary editor; and Willis Goldsmith, business mana ger. A good deal of politics was dis played in the selection of the business manager, which was so distasteful to the pupils that a provision was made for the manager t-ereafter to be elect ed by popular vote of the school. Major A. M. Harvey is scheduled to deliver the Memorial day address at Hoyt today. As far as this section of the country is concerned the tradition about rain on Decoration Day holds true. Clyde Miller, of Osage City,, secretary of the Republican state central com mittee, was in Topeka Wednesday. The supply of new helmets for the po lice force have arrived and help the ap pearance of Topeka's finest a little. The police are now clothed in new blue helmets which give them a much better looking appearance than before. The rain today will interfere greatly with the observances of Memorial Day which have been planned by the old soldiers. i The Cosmopolitan shows are having a vacation today on account of Memor ial Day.

Ever since Blanche Walsh played here one of her sayings has taken its place in the town's vocabulary of slang. It is: "Oh, sand your shoes, you're slipping.'J Four years ago today the big flood broke through . North Topeka and scattered a desolation that was stag gering, but of which few evidences re main nowadays.;. As usual on occasions of the kind To peka has been drawn on heavily to sup ply speakers for Decoration day exer cises and there is a noticeable dearth of lawyers on this account. Herbert De Veau, the clever car toonist, gets rounds and rounds of ap plause from the large audiences which have attended the performances at the Novelty theater this week. The absence of ' flags and bunting about the city today is not on account of the lack of patriotism but because most of the creations of this kind are not of the waterproof variety. What can the answer possibly be, when a man who Is noted for his so briety, rather calmly announces that among his dreams was one to the ef fect that he found a nest of baby ele phants? Governor Hoch is in Herington today delivering the Memorial Day address. The rain is bad for the speech, but judging from all reports, Dickinson county needs rain worse than it needs speeches. Among the'several blessings confer red by the rain today was a washing up of the exterior of the street cars. It was quite possible by noon to dis cover the real colors with which they are painted. The lateness of trains on roads enter ing the city is already being attributed to the disastrous effect of the two cent a mile bill of the last legislature though It is no more responsible than it is for the rain today. It is not generally known, but a sort of a law and order society has been organized in the south end of the town.

The June session of the supreme court will begin Monday. The May session of the court was the heaviest in the his tory of the court. Fifty-eight cases were heard, which means about nine cases for each justice to consider during the month. Usually each justice has five or six cases.

It is expected that write ups of other state institutions will appear in the same paper. It will soon be haying time in the fields around the county court house.

State Officers Think Stationery Firms Are In a Combine. On Saturday the state will let the contracts for ail the stationery sup plies to be used at the state house dur ing the coming year, and a strong ef fort is being made to "bust" the sta tionery combine which it is claimed has ben operating to the disadvant age of the state for some years past. ' The state ha3 sent its stationery specifications not only to Topeka deal ers, but todealers in Wichita, Kansas City, St. Louis, Chicago, and other places. It is thought that by having bids from so many outside sources, there will be some real competition for the state's business. One bid has been received from Wichita up to the present time, and the state officers are expecting others before Saturday. It has also been decided by the ex ecutive council to buy all the supplies in bulk this year, and keep the sup plies on hand in the office of the sec retary of state. This involves the establishment of a good sized sta tionery department in the office of the secretary of state for there is a vast quantity of stationery supplies con sumed at the state house in the course of the year. Last year the state tried to beat the alleged "etmbine" by appointing the secretary of state as purchasing agent. Whenever the state officers wanted any supplies they notified the secretary, and he would go on the market and buy wherever he could get the best prices. This system did not pan out very well. The expense for supplies was so heavy that the ways and means committee of the legislature, which had some of the bills to pay, were inclined to rise up and demand the establishment of a vigilance committee. They believed that the state was getting ine worsi or it. So, as the rystem of a puich-ssing agent v.as entirely unlawful, and was only adopted for the' purpose of edging out of the grip of the alleged 'combine," thn council decided to return to tne strict method of purchase provided by of the aaffering and danger in atore for her, roba the exoectant mother of all pleasant anticipations of the coming event, and casta over her a shadow of gloom which cannot be ahaken off. Thousands of women have found that the use of Mother' Friend during pregnancy roba confinemeut of all pain and danger, and insures safety to life of mother and child. This scientific liniment is a god-send to all women at tho time of their most critical trial. Not only does Mother's Friend carry women safely through the perils of child-birth, but its use gently prepares the system for the coming event, prevents "morning sickness." and other dis- containing valuable information free.

Start now. law, and buy all supplies in bulk by ine contract system. It has also been the custom some of the years in the past to let the contracts tor supplies, and then purchase supplies In small quantities as needed from the successful bidders. This enabled the secretary of state to keep the state offi cers SUnnlifri with nonMla an4 , . . equipment without loading up his office with a lot of stock which could not ba easily handled. Thin nvxtom hr.-ei-o.. Old not give satisfaction, because it seemed to leave evrvrhina t Vi A t,,.. . ka bidders. Outsiders could not supply the needs of the state in small quanti ties "as ordered," and the Topeka bid ders realized that the state would be obliged to let the contract at home. This was the reason for adopting the plan of buying in bulk, which w ill be used during the coming year. Each state officer has made an estimate of what he will need for the year, and the state will buy supplies enough for the whole year and have the supplies delivered at once into the custody of the secretary. It is expected that the larre room and vault underneath the oflico of th secretary of state will be fitted us as a stationery department. The supplies will be stored in the vault, and kept under lock and key. It has been found linn'liSP trt lr.an 1 h.. n...,H ... l ..
