I Packers and Commission Men Reach I Basis of Agreement. Chicago, July 12. The "sealed pack age" system of buying cattle at the Chicago stock yards has been adopted as a compromise at a meeting between representative of the Chicago Livestock exchange and the packers. Negotia tions have been pending for several weeka between the commission men and the packers and no agreement could be reached on any other basis. The packers held out for a system of purchasing cattle at the yards where by stock found to be Infected with cer tain diseases could be rejected after the purchase. The commission men main tained that such a system was unfair and gave the packers an undue advan tage over the cattle owners and com mission men. Under the agreement the packing house buyers will make per chases at their own risk. They will be' given the right of examination, but once selections have been made and prices agreed upon the sale will be re garded as completed and any subse quent losses will fall upon the purchasers. j Wheat Averaged 42 Bushels.

A XEW DEPARTMENT STORE. E. Zand! ton Will Open si Large Mer cantile Establishment in September. A new department store will be opened by Mr. K. Zanditon on Kansas avenue about Septemper first. This store is expected to be one of the largest department stores In the state. The Crawford opera house building that Is now being remodeled for the store will be of the latest type and most improved structure in the city, and when the new stock has been in stalled, it will no doubt be a pride- to the city. . In speaking of the new store, Mr. Zanditon said; "I will leave shortly for the eastern market for the purpose of buying merchandise. I shall visit Boston, New York. Philadelphia and Cleveland, and in fact all points that will be of advantage for the purchase of merchandise. I buy all of my goods directly from the manufacturer, at the mills and factories, a fact which gives me an advantage over those buying from wholesalers and jobbers. In this way I am able to buy goods cheaper and this has been the cause, in a large degree, of my success. I expect to open the store for business between September 1 and 15. and will carry In stock all goods that truly belong to a department store of this class. I will continue to cater to the masses with popular priced merchandise as I have always done heretofore." OUIDA'S HARD LUCK. Xoted Novelist Is Blind. Deaf and Uvlng in Poverty.

If you want a dish that is deliciously appetizing and sustaining, warm a Shredded Wheat Bis cuit in the oven till it is crisp, crush a hollow in the top and fill it with berries, sliced pine apple, bananas or peaches, and serve with cream and sugar. Contains more real nutriment than meat or eggs. For breakfast heat the Biscuit in oven to restore crispness, pour hot or cold milk over it, add a little cream and a little salt; or, sweeten to taste.

The Florence corre spondent of the Daily Mail sends lengthy details of the recent life of the novelist, Quida, who Is living in poverty in Italy, and to whom, according to an nouncement made yesterday, a pension or .ou nas been granted from the civil list. The correspondent says until two years ago miss De la Ramee occupied opienuia vnia at Lucca. She was known as "the lady of the dogs," as she invanaDiy nad thirty.

Tlie Santa Fe Has Made an Order for 30,000 Tons. New York, July 12. The specifications of an order for 40,000 tons of steel rails given to the Bethlehem Steel company are interesting In view of the contro versy which has been going on for some time between the manufacturers of rails and the railroads. The latter have been making a protest against the quality of the rails and the way they have been breaking. The specifications In the con tracts, which were awarded by the San ta Fe and the Lackawanna are more stringent than they have been in the past. They require that 25 per cent of the ingot be discarded from the top and that the rails contain not more than .04 per cent of sulphur. The cutting off of the top of the Ingot Is to eliminate the steel which Is likely to be impaired by the raising of gas and other Impuri ties to the surface. In the past the mills have been cutting oft from 8 to 13 pr cent and contracts have been calling for open hearth rails containing not more than .06 per cent of sulphur. Rails on these terms will of course cost considerably more. The Santa Fe order was for 30.000 tons and the Lackawanna for 10,000 tons. Lumber Rates to Go I "p. Salt Lake City, July 12. The Herald today says: Freight rates on lumber shipments throughout . the United States and particularly between Wash ington, Oregon and other Pacific coast points to the intermountain country, will be raised from 5 to 10 per cent on September 1 or October 1 by the railroad companies. Such is the posi tive information that has been received in Salt Lake this week and with it comes the announcement that when freight rates are so raised the price of lumber to the public will be pro portionately raised.

The Butchers' and Grocers picnic will be held at Vinewood on the 18th of July, This is the annual picnic and one of the big summer events. W. E. Connelley of Topeka will read a paper on the "Pioneers of Missouri at the Chautauqua at Fairmount park, Kansas City, tomorrow. The street commissioner has been grading streets in Quinton Heights. The streets in thi3 addition are like regular stone quarries. Today is Ladies' day at the ball game and this is probably the sign that a poor game will be played. It generally happens that way. The Springfield series of games closed witn tne one this afternoon and Wich ita's ball team will open a series of four games tomorrow afternoon. The Sunday schools at Prairie Home, Bethel and Pleasant Ridge will unite and hold a picnic at . Forbes grove, two miles north of Kiro, on July 2 5. The annual Grocers and Butchers' picnic at Vinewood park will be held next Thursday, July 18. All the stores in Topeka will be closed on that date, Yesterday's ball game between the White Sox and Springfield was the shortest one ever played at the Ath letic park and lasted but one hour and fifteen minutes. The Y. M. C. A. juniors, under the leadership of Harry Heinzman, started for Vinewood park bright and early this morning with their lunches with -them for a day s picnic Guy Adams has sold his automobile to Dr. Fleming, a dentist of Greenleaf, and will purchase a new machine as soon as he can make up his mind what car he wants to drive. Those who did not go out to the game yesterday, will be finding fault with themselves today as yesterday's game was one of the prettiest exhibi tions ever seen on the local park. During the remainder of the summer the clothing stores on Kansas avenue .will close at 5:30 every night with the exception of Saturday night. An agree ment to this effect was entered into yes terday. H. J. Bone, United States district at torney, is in the city, but will leave next week for Denver where he is in charge of the prosecution of the mining frauds which the government has un earthed. A souvenir programme of Garfield park is being prepared for the use of the visitors to next week's Chautauqua and will contain numerous views of the park and the section of the city north of the river. Captain E. E. Whittaker, who for the past five months has ' been in charge of the Salvation army work in Torjeka. has resigned and will return to his home in Illinois for a rest, as his health is bad. City Attorney Drenning has taken a vacation and has gone to Yellowstone Park. This will afford the city fath ers a slight chance of slipping In a lit tle legislation and a few ordinances to their own liking. It is reported that a new Joint has been ODened on Kansas avenue. The interior is neatly arranged and parti tioned into rooms for the accommoda tion of the patrons of the place who are said to be of both sexes. For a week past an item to the ef fect that City Attorney Drenning has gone to Yellowstone Park has appeared in one of the city papers, and each suc ceeding day he has been seen on the streets and about tne city Duiiaing. If you want to cross the street and see an automobile or buggy coming towards you keen right on as you have the right of way over any vehicle. If you get hurt your rights will be rec ognized in court. This is consoling. All of the clerks In the stores about the city are in favor of the business houses closing during Tiaay ariernoon during the hot weather and most of the merchants are willing to ao so, duc will not unless the move can be made unanimous. Wichita comes tomorrow for four games and baseball enthusiasm -will probably be running pretty high in Topeka as a result. Sparring exhibi tions and other side perrormances not usually connected with a ball game are apt to be pulled off. There will be a big crowd of excur sionists In Topeka next Sunday. The Santa Fe will bring in a Dig loaa rrom Wichita and another excursion will also be run from St. Joe into Topeka. The leading attraction will be the game De tween Topeka and Wichita.
