No Fourth of July accidents have
been reported so far. The nearest to
such a thing happened at the C. XV.
Thompson stand on the avenue near
Gordon street when a box of fireworks
caught fire this morning. They were
promptly thrown into the street before
the rest of the stock took fire and no
damage resulted.
The police were unusually busy and
vigilant last night in arresting the small
boy who in his patriotism and enthus
iasm for the Glorious Fourth failed to
wait until after midnight but shot off
some firecrackers while it was still the
third of July. An automobile was kept
busy making trips up and down the
avenue looking after such offenders. It
is to bad that such vigilance could not
have been expended in North Topeka

being nightly robbed.

has been living with her children on
Emmett street, near the Santa Fe
shops. In the divorce decree was an
order permitting Mr. Stewart to visit
their children, two little girls, on the
third Sunday of each month.
Mr. Stewart made arrangements the

house yesterday afternoon for the pur
pose of bidding goodby to his children
Mrs. Stewart informed her quondam
nusDand that he could not see them,
as it was not his day as set aside by
the court to visit them. , Mr. Stewart
wanted to see them badly and went to
the district court for help, with the
result that he got the order from
Judge Dana directing Mrs. 'Stewart to
allow the children to see their father
today.
This order was served this morning
on Mrs. Stewart by J. M. Wllkerson,
Ihe pherlff. Mr. Stewart went with the

The 0 d Reliable
'Specialist
With the booming and roaring of can
non of greater and less degree and the
short, sharp crack of powdercrackers of
all sizes, the advent of another Inde
pendence Day, dated on the calendars
as July 4, was ushered in last midnight
by the email boys and a good many
larger boys as well.
If, as it seems to be, noise Is the
synonym of youthful patriotism there
was plenty of evidence today that the
youngsters or Topeka are not entitled
to seats on the back row of any gather
ing of the patriotically inclined. In
fact they ought to have seats well up
towards the front, for it would have
been well nigh impossible for any
similar number of children the country
over to have made more of a racket
with all sorts of noise-Droducing con
tiivances than did the boys and girls
of Topeka today. And this racket was
continuous from long before daylight.
In fact there was a plenty of young
sters, who evidently staid up all night
for the purpose of shooting oft some
thing and making a terrific explosion
of some sort at the instant the one
hundred and thirty-first glorious Fourth
was bora.
A good many of the lads, and many
of them were big enough and old enough
to know better, started in with thei
noisy celebrations hours before the
Fourth arrived, but the great majority
hoarded up their all too small accumu
lations of peace disturbers until the
early morning hours when they started
In with vigor to make Topeka howl
They met with great success in their
endeavors along this line. In the rest
dential districts of the city, sleep was
almost impossible after 4 o clock this
morning. By that hour about- every
boy and girl in the city who had
supply of powdercrackers, and there
were few who did not have a plenty
although their piles, no matter how
large, seemed all too small, had sneak
ed from their downy cots to the street
and were busy making life merry for
themselves and miserable for their
friends who created the same sort of
disturbances a generation ago.
And from the early hours of the
morning the din throughout the city
was incessant. It was not confined to
the residential districts. Down In the
business section of the city all the
merchants handling powder crackers
and fireworks had their stands out on
the streets. On them the newsboys
and the other lads who were circulat
ing around dropped their pennies and
nickels for all kinds of crackers which
they immediately tossed up in noise
a.nd smoke. Many a grown man be
came. .sDasmodlcaJly tired , witn tne
noisy enthusiasm of the youths and
sneaked up to a powder cracker stand,
bought the largest exploder on sale
and either touched It off himself or
gladdened the heart of a small boy
by entrusting this task, to mm.
It was not necessary for one s near-
inar apoaratus to be in more than ordi
nary working order to realize that the
best laid plans of mice and men gang
aft a glae. A stringent ordinance was
passed by the city council last rail
which sought to provide for a safe
and sane fourth. The sale of certain
kinds of dynamite crackers was pro
hibited and the size of all powder
crackers was limited.- But the manu
facturers of powder crackers and the
ocal dealers had a trlcK up ineir
sleeve evidently, for the crackers sold
for today, it seemed, made more noise
and louder reports than any whicn
have been used here in times passed.
It was evident that while the manu
facturers kept well within the size
mit ordained by the wise city fathers.
they made them fatter and filled them
with more Dowder and explosives than
they used to put in the large ones for
the great majority or small cracxers
shot off today made four times as
much noise as those four or five, yes,
ten times their size made In years past.
One method of celebrating ana
making noise which was conspicuous
by its absence this year was the shoot-
ng on; or DianK cartridges iu icvui-
vers. In years pasi aooui every wu
from twelve years up to twenty and
even older , carried a revolver of some
sort which he shot off continuously all
day long and wherever he might be,
whether It was on the street, in a
building or in the trolley cars. Fre
quently some fellows did not take the
rouble to use oianK cani-iuges. j.uey
used the loaded kind and many in
juries resulted from their carelessness.
But strict injunction was placed
by the city council against the use of
firearms this year, even ior mans can
ridces. and the police enforced this
iniimctlnn to the letter. It was a rare
sight to see anyone pull out a gun and
blaze away.
The Police Are Busy.
About two dozen boys, of all ages be
tween 10 and 21, were arrested by the
police last night for "violating ordinance
2723." This is the recently passed ordi
nance prohibiting the use of big fire
crackers and dynamite torpedoes. 1 All
the boys were turned loose before
morning.
The Fourth of July is always a nuis
ance to the police force, because the
noise keeps the policemen awake and
otherwise disturbs their peace. Aside
from their personal inconvenience, the
officers are continually disturbed, by
anxious or irate citizens who are1 not
sufficiently patriotic to, stand all the
noice without objecting.
Last evening a lady living In the ex
treme southwestern ragged edge of the
city, telephoned something like this: "I
think Some boys are planning to shoot
firecrackers around here tomorrow, and
I want you to send out a policeman to
watch them."
All the patrolmen have been g-iven
orders to prevent the use of torpedo
canes, but they are "up against It,"
While the order of their chief pro
hibits the cane shooter entirely, the
ordinance upon which he bases his
order prohibits only the use of dyna
mite caps in such canes. Therefore,
it is up to the policeman to decide
whether the material in the cap is dy
namite or some other explosive. As
few of the officers are dynamite ex
perts, this is no easy job.
Half a dozen complaints were re
ceived at police headquarters about
boys who were placing- dynamite caps
on the street car tracks. Up to noon
the officers, though they had made
many runs in many directions, had
failed to apprehend any of the cul-

. Is Purchased.
" The building at 521-523 Quincy street
has been purchased for the use of the
Kansas Medical college when the fall
term opens, which will be some time in
September, The building purchased
was built by the Odd Fellows about 20
years ago but finally passed out of the
hands of the order and at the time of
the sale to the medical college- belonged
to eastern parties.
The lower floors of the building are
used by the Whiting Paint company
but the two upper floors will be used
by the college as soon as they can be
remodeled. It is said that the purchase
price of the building was $14,000 and
that the building alone when construct
ed cost considerably more than this
sum. -
The purchase of this or some other
property was made necessary by the
sale of the building on Twelfth and

first reported was an attempt to get

night. Last night Charles ' Gerteisen's
house was visited by a night worker,
who attempted to cut a hole in the
screen door for the purpose of un
hooking it, but was frightened away
before he succeeded. It was probably
the same robber who had better suc
