3 IIUGGEDJASES. The Topeka Ball Players Afraid to Take Chances. Cooleycrow Men Stuck to Bases Like They Were Glued. LOST TO WEBB CITY. Was a Pretty Poor Exhibition of National Game All Around Will Open Up Again at Home June 12 With Joplin. ToDeka droDDed the closing game of the series yesterday afternoon by a score of 2 to 3. Topeka lost the game by a couple of bad errors and failed to n in v.,. etimiH hasi running. It was a poor game throughout and although Topeka outclassed Webb City by a good margin the game went to the visitors who had a crippled team and four pitchers in the game. Mclnnis started into work for To peka and was rather wild. He had the Webb Feet guessing in all but one inning. In the sixth inning he showed pvmploms of not being able to locate the plate and Allison was called in to finish the game. . Both pitchers were verv close with their hits. Burns pitched for the visitors and as usual did not throw anything but a straight ball, which the locals did not hit verv effectively. The locals had no trouble whatever in putting the ball up In the air. Topeka scored one In the second inning. Halla hit safe, Abbott ran for Halla and went to second when Ragan secured a Texas leaguer over the pitcher. Olson made a bad heave to first to head off Ragan after the latter had crossed the bag and Abbott went to third and Ragan to second. Run kel walked filling the bases. Olson at ' tempted a sacrifice but Abbott failed to come home on the squeeze sign and was caught at the plate. Henry threw out to Dalrymple and Ragan beat the throw in. Mclnnis went out to Milton. The Webb City bunch scored three In the fifth. Mclnnis walked Milton and when Milton started for second Henrv threw to Hurlburt who was covering second and the ball took a bad bound passing Spec and allowing Milton to score. Gill fanned, but Shaner was safe on Ragan's error and Burns secured a lucky blngle. Gray walked and Olson's single scored Shaner and Burns. The next two were fly outs to Abbott. Topeka crossed the plate once in the fifth. Olson first man up singled and scored on Henry's double. A ques tionable decision cut Henry off at third on Mclnnis fielder's choice and another chance to score was prevent ed. Topeka never had a look in after that. The weather was In marked con trast to that of Sunday which prob ably had something to do with the poor playing. The team will open up again on the home grounds with Jop lin June 12th. and will play a series of eight games. The score of yesterday's contest: -. " TOPEKA. Piayer AR. R. JT. O.

But, if the food passes too slowly, it decays before it gets through. Then the little suckers draw Poison from it instead of Nutrition. This Poison makes a Gas that injures your system more than the food should have nourished it. The usual remedy for this delayed pass age (called Constipation) is to take a big dose of Castor Oil. This merely make slippery the passage lor unloading the current cargo. It does not help the Cause of delay a trifle. It does slacken the Bowel-Muscles, and weakens them for their next task. Another remedy is to take a strong 'Physic," like Salts, Calomel, Jalap, Phos phate of Sodium, Aperient Water, or any of these mixed. What does the "Physic" do? It merely flushes-out, the Bowels with a waste of Digestive Juice, set flowing .nto the Intestines through the tiny suckers. Cascarets are the enly safe medicine for the bowels. They do not waste any precious fluid of the Bowels, as "Physics" do. They do not relax the Intestines by greas ing them inside like Castor Oil or Glycerine. They simply stimulate the Bowel Muscles to do their work naturally, com fortably, and nutritiously. - They are put up in thin, flat, round-cornered Enamel boxes, so they can be carried In a man's vest pocket, or in a woman's purse, an the time, without bulk or trouble.

Piguida fled but was arrested today and taken to the hospital where Bradley lay in a critical condition.

(Continued from Page Two.) identify his property he can recover it. This does not seem to me to be true, but merely one of the stories of the . place. Mexico City is well be haved and well policed and it is not likely that property supposed to be stolen would be permitted to be placed on sale. The Thieves' market is not a particularly Inviting place and one was inclined to keep one hand on his watch and the other on his pocket book while passing through the place. The flower market near the big ca thedral is one of the show places which every one visits. Flowers are here in profusion and. for a few pen nies a handsome bouquet may be se cured. Men, women and children are deftly engaged all the time making wreaths, crosses and pieces such as are used at funerals. An elaborate design filled with " pansies, daisies, tuberoses, etc., was priced at two dollars in Mexican money and another more elaborate piece at five dollars. We would expect to pay our florists from three to five times as much for the Same thing. Many fields in the neighborhood of the City of Mexico grow pulque, pro nounced pul-kay. These plants are t be seen in our- green houses in the winter and in the city parks and about our homes in the summer and are known here as the century plant. The Mexicans draw from the center of this plant a white juice, which is fermented over night and becomes beer. It is the beer of Mexico and is said to be more intoxicating than the American article. Well to do Mex icans say it is the curse of the poor classes, thousands of whom work for the money to buy their pulque and carouse with it until . the money gone, to begin again the operation of working and alternately spending for the liquor. Made fn Topeka, U. S. A: I was proud to learn that the grocers of the City of Mexico carried Meadow Gold and Primrose butter made in Topeka, which sells there for 91.10 Mexican money and seems to be in demand. Perhaps the reader is expecting to read a description of the. bull fight, can't give It; unless I go to the guide books or give the experience of oth ers. I might have gone to a bull fight, just once, but did not. It was generally announced that no bull fight would take place while we were there I afterwards learned that there was one, an amateur affair, at which six bulls were killed. One hears of various stories In "the City of Mexico about bull fights. heard one American gentleman con demn the amusement very strongly Another American gentleman and his family said they enjoyed the sport One American told me he had been under fire in the army and witnessed all sorts of excitement, but nothing quite equal to a bull fight. Bull fighting as an amusement has evidently come to stay in the City of Mexico, for an enormous amphithea ter of steel construction is now under way and nearing completion. The government is,- however, spend ing a very large sum of money to cultivate fine' dramatic instincts and encourage operas and amusements of the high grade. Near the center of the city is now building a mammoth structure of steel frame work, to be known as the National Theater. The government will, itis-'said, give free rental to the highest and best classes of dramatic and operatic organizations to encourage this sort of art. The building under way seems to be planned to be nearly as large as the Kansas capltol. Mexico has its museums, art galleries and libraries similar to those in great cities of this country and Europe. One afternoon we spent at the charm ing suburb of San Angel, where there is a handsome hotel of the mission type in the center of a beautiful park of a hundred acres, the property of Mr. Stil well and a number of his associates in the Orient railway. Many lots have been sold to wealthy people who will build suburban homes thereon. On the last afternoon of the stay in the city an elaborate luncheon was served at the Chapultepec cafe, which is in the park which surrounds Chapulte- pec, which is the W hite House of Mex ico. President Diaz, a wonderful man who has been elected time and again for twenty-four years as president of the republic, was ill and could not re ceive us as we expected. His disap pointment was doubtless great. The luncheon, however, was attended by many distinguished Mexicans, who seemed to take delight In honoring Pres. ident Stilwell. American Capital Encouraged. The Mexicans Indeed encourage Amer ican capital. They have given a sub sidy of three million dollars to tho Orient railway and take the greatest pride In paying the subsidy promptly from time to time as it becomes due when certain sections of the road are completed. Mr. Stilwell and his officers agree that they have never dealt with more honor able people than the officials of the Mexican government have shown them selves to be in connection with the building of the road and never in a single instance have they been the vic tims of any sort of hold-up or extortion. Among the Mexicans at this luncheon was Mr. Juarez. He was exceedingly affable and gave me his autograph. I am unable to read his first name, but I know he is the son of the first president of the republic and an exceedingly fine gentleman. The luncheon was beautifully served a full dress affair, although no ladies were present. The gentlemen wore Prince Alberts and silk hats, leaving the latter, of course, at the check stand Many in our party, who never wore this regalia before and never expect to wear it again, made a virtue of necessity and bowed to the custom of the time and place. We left the City of Mexico Tuesday evening, returning over the National road by way of Laredo, Texas. This is a much shorter and more desirable route than the one by way of El Paso unless one may stop to break the long ride. From Laredo the journey continued by way of San Antonio, Fort Worth, Mus kogee, I. T., and Parsons, Kansas, com pleting the trip at Kansas City Friday night. - The Trip a Unique One. The trip was unique and interesting. We do not know Just what it cost the Orient railway to equip and conduct a train of this sort, but heard it estimated to be eight thousand dollars, which may not be far out of the way. Everything Is complete and first class. The culinary department on the dining car could not be excelled. There were four - cooks; they did their duty and had the material to produce the effect. Of the thirteen nights out eleven were spent on the cars. Everything was done for the comfort of the guests. The returns from the trip, of course, come mainly from 'the Investments which are made and it is said each trip brings in several hundred thousand dol lars, occasionally, but exceptionally, aggregating In neighborhood of half a million. Thus it will be seen that the proposition is largely a business one and that bonds cannot usually be floated at so low an expense as even the great cost of a train of this kind. While efforts are made to embarrass no one who fails to subscribe for the Donas of the road, every facility is of fered to see that the guest has amnh opportunity of judging what is best for uim to ao. 'ihe great majority seem to aeciae mat the investment is a good one and act accordinelv Thev natur ally tell their friends and thus the work goes on. It requires about 910,000 a day to build the road. Mr. Stilwell says the money seems to come in in a steady stream sufficient for the construction, Mr. StilH ell's Personality. And now a word , about Mr. Stilwell himself. He has the faculty of bring Ing about him able men. efficient lieu tenants. One of the best of these is probably-Edward Dickinson, the-vice president and general manager and un til he came to the Orient road, tlx years ago, general manager for many years ror the Union Pacific. Mr. Dick inson, and many others actively inter ested in constructing the road, have contributed largely of their own means. But Mr. Stilwell and Mr. Stil well's spirit form the soul of the enterprise. He has infused his enthusiasm and ability and energy - into the enterprise In such a manner that no one, who has been with him for two weeks and who has been over the completed portion of the road, can doubt that it will be built steadily ae4 pushed continuously to completion. Mr. Stilwell himself is a remarkable personality. He is an optimist of the most pronounced type. He seems to know no such word as "fail" and has a record of unbroken successes in a wide line of industry, in. more recent years in railway circles. He has met many obstacles, but seems to always overcome them. In arranging terminal facilities at Port Arthur on the Kansas City Southern he was obliged to build a canal on a new plan. This canal was seven miles long and although a ship canal was con structed on land but a few feet from the ship waterway. Instead of dredging the harbor In the ordinary way, ne duih this canal away from but near to the coast line of the harbor. The govern ment engineers fouerht him incessantly and ridiculed his plan. Last year 400 vessels passed through this canal and the government is now extending it 40 miles further inland on Mr. Stilwell's plan of construction. - When th ensrineer asked Mr. Stil well how wide and how deep he should make the canal, Mr. Stilwell said, "Make it as wide and as deep as the Suez canal." and the engineer- took these sneclficatlons from the encyclopedia. He could take the highest degree in the Don't Worry Club without further DreDaratlon. Among his recreations are writing hymns, lullabies and comic operas. "The Prince of Galilee," Is one of his sacred solos: "The Babe of Bethlehem," an other. "The Persian Potentate of the Plumber Prince" is a comic opera he wrote and which is to be brought out at Drury Lane in London this fall. A book of children's poems, similar to those of Eugene rield, will be published for the holidays. ' A charming lullaby, Dream1 And." was written and the music arranged on this trip. The incident on the train which makes the most rjrofound impression on the guest is the evening religious service in the private car. A powerrui reea organ is built into the car and until in use looks like a roll top desk. The private secretary, I. K. Brown, plays the instru ment with the same facility he manipu lates the tynewriter. - Fractieallv .every night on the car, un less it be standing at a station, services are held and as many as can crowa in to the room, about thirty, gatner without invitation or request, but are made welcome. Mr. Stilwell has been a Christian Scientist for twenty-one years, founded the first church in Kansas City and delivered forty addresses on the re ligion in London. He carries his religion into his busi ness, but without cant or ostentation. He nlans to give no offense to those of other denominations, but is ready to ex niatn his faith which he declares gives nlm serenity, peace and confidence. He says. "Think sunshine, live sun shine;" "Think good and grand tnougnts and you will live good and grand lives." The services are informal: A half dozen hymns In which all join, a scrip tural reading and a talk from Mr. Stil well-on his experiences and" his inter- nretation of Christ and the model lire he gave to the world. Mr. Stilwell says of these meetings: "I would not for the world offend my guests, nor obtrude my religion upon them, but the car is my home for the time, the service is my Joy and rest. I delight in it and some times think the services are spreading more good and more sunlight in tne world in a manner to pernaps exceea the importance of the great prime mis sion before me to build the orient rail road." At manv stations in Old Mexico were seen square bundles which looked like haled hav in the last stages or aecay. This was rubber plant and close in spection showed the fiber to be woody and like small twigs. ' The temperature in the City of Mex ico, elevation 7,500 feet above the sea, Is almost uniform the year around, varvine but about 15 degrees for the same hour in the day from June to De cember. The Mexicans do not provide for heating their houses. They are afraid artificial heat induces pneu monia. Their rooms are a little chilly occasionally, but they believe this hardens their systems to resist colds. The American puts grates in his home or arranges for a little heat when the mercury drops below normal. The kitchen fire is of charcoal. It is burned on top of odd looking stoves in queer receptacles that appear to be for food rather than fuel. House service is cheap in the city. One formerly of Topeka lady says she pays her cook 98 a month "Mexican," 94 our money, and her house maid the same. Eacn must nave, nowever, an allowance of five centavos a day,- 91-50 Mexican." a month, for tortillos, pro nounced torteeyos, which as food for the Mexican, is. like rice to the China man.
