The sessions of group No. 2 of the Kansas Bankers' association will be held tomorrow in the Elks' hall. The annual meeting of the synod of the Presbyterian church in Kansas will start tonight in the First Presbyterian church. A certain mail order house, one of the largrest firms in the country, has simply flooded Topeka 'with literature on fall fashions. The Washburn football team isn't expecting; to win from Fairmount next Saturday. The team has one consolation- no one else is expecting them to win. Maybe the reason for your failure to receive an invitation to the last social function was because your name was not in the Independent telephone direc tory. Miss Mary Kerr, who has recently returned from Japan, will speak at the first Y. W. C. A. vesper services of the season in the Y. W. C. A. Sunday af ternoon. A meeting of the parks' committee of the Commercial club was held this noon to discuss the proposed 35 mile boulevard which has been talked about for manv a moon. Henry P,. Lautz. assistant to the gen eral manager of the Santa Fe. is spending his vacation in Illinois. He will be away from the city until the middle ot the month. The city clerk of Wichita was in town today and he said three of the city officials of that city would be in Topeka this week for the convention of Kansas municipalities. Mrs. Charlotte Bleaklev, mother of the incubator baby. Marian Bleakley, now lives in Highland Park and is one of the teachers in the school in that suburb. Marian is enrolled as one of the scholars there. The lied Cross first-aid-to-the-in-jured car is in Topeka today. This car i now traveling on the lines of the I'nion Pacific. Previouslv when it was in this city it was going" over the llock Island Lines. In another column Mayor Billard has warned all persons from hitching their horses to the great white way P'-i'.es. It is a disgrace that anv good citizen should have to be warned of this violation of the ordinances. C. H. Gaunt, at one time supet in tended of telegraph and assistant ren eral manager of the Santa Fe in "To peka. is visiting in the citv. Mr. Gaunt . aL th'. head of the western division of the Western Union on the coast. A boulevard system over Topeka 4s being planned by members of the C ommerekil club.

But do it mre lhan "lutions to Another issue .-f the Commercial Club Bulletin, the official organ of the To Peka Commercial club.S will Ms CHEER UP! You're GettirvgWcrm. foTf appearance in the near future. This paper is bright and put out in a man ner conducive to creating enthusiasm among the members of the club. Halloween night is coming and the small boy spends ht& time to and from school picking out neat little sheds tnat can be overturned easily. And. during school hours he spends his time inventing means of "taking it out" on the peevish old maids of the neighborhood. The board of education will meet in special session tomorrow night. There are some odds and ends of business to come up for consideration, but the main point for argument will be the ques tion as to whether or not an order will be issued to compel the school chil dren to be vaccinated. Charles F. Krammes, transportation clerk in the office of the general mana ger of the Santa Fe, has returned from a wedding trip to New Mexico. The employees of his office had a canopy of hearts and cupids draped over his desk when he returned. Krammes is one of the popular young Santa Fe men. Thinking that the sparrows had flown to other lands on account of the cool weather, Colonel Savage of the Santa Fe sprinkled another bushel of blue grass seed in his yard. The colonel demonstrated to his own satis faction that it takes more than cold weather to scare sparrows away from free blue grass seed. The need of the old fire bell was demonstrated today when a fire alarm came to headquarters engine house and the hose wagon was out on the streets for practice. It was several minutes before the driver could be in formed of the call. The delay was not serious as the fire was extinguished by the chemical companies. Now that the establishment of parks in Topeka is something that interests the people, it might not be out of place to mention the fact that the city of Spokane. Wash., will in the near future have $1,000,000 to spend for park purposes and for playgrounds. Half of the amount is to be expended in new park sites, upon which $250,000 will be spent in improvements. Another $250, 000 will be set aside for playgrounds and their equipment. A bond issue made oossible the expenditure of this large amount of coin. Scores of meetings have been held at the Commercial club by the building committee of the First Methodist j church and time after time changes ) have been made in the plans for the new $40,000 Sunday school addition which is now in course of construction, for it is the ambition of the church members to have the most modern and practical Sunday school department In the country. Although the work has progressed rapidly- in the last few few months and the superstructure is well up, the committee has decided that the addition should be made larger, and action to this end may be taken by the church. AT LAST ASKS PAY FOR BOARD- NORTH SIDE HEWS lied Cross Car in Union Pacific Yards. Practical Lessons in First Aid to Injured. CLEAN BANDAGES Surgeon in Charge Emphasizes Necessity for Them. Railroad Men and Others See Demonstration. irii-uf aiA to the iniured was demon strated this afternoon in a special Ked Cross car on the Union Pacitic tracK just east of the Union Pacific freight uepot. The car, in charge of Dr. M. W. Glasgow . is under the supervision of the lirst aid department of the Amen can Ked Cross association. Practical lessons in first aid to injured will be eiven in the car tomorrow mornms alter which it will go to Lawrence. The same car was here going over the Rock Island Lanes in March. 1 began the circuit of the Harriman lines a lew months' ago at Ogden, after cov ering the Oregon Short Line and other coast railroads. The idea is to give lessons to railroad. men and others about first care to the hurt. With a man tor a patient ur. Glasgow shows how to bind up trac ture temporarily, how to apply gauze on burns and above all emphasizes that everything which touches a burn or wound should De as Clean as possi ble. Otherwise germs from soiled ma terial mav cause infection. The bandages and other material used in the demonstrations are found in the emergency boxes which are gradually becoming the equipment of round houses, depots, and coal and other mining plants. This car has been in commission since December 15, 1910. The commit tee, known as the First Aid Committee of the Ked Cross society wmcn super vises it, is headed by Major Charles Lynch. John Hays Hammon, a well known politician and statesman. Justis Kreutschnitts, third vice president or the Harriman roads, John Mitchell, the noted labor leader, are included on tho committee. Ur. Glasgow is a graduate of Vander bilt college, Nashville, Tenn. He has had ten years experience m emergency work as surgeon for railroad com panies. "In case of a fracture straighten the iniured limb and put on splints of som kind to keep the broken bones from grating on each other," said Dr. Glas gow tms afternoon. "T have seen men with broken legs brought to the hos pital doubled up like jack knives. Th first aid to the hurt is what often de termines whether the patient will live or die. Above all thin'gs, 'bandages should be as clean as possible. I have known in case of wounds, that dirty waste would be applied to stop ths bleeding and infection would set in from the germs on the material." Beginning with October 18 the thir teenth annual Shawnee county Sunday school convention will hold a two days session at the Kansas Avenue M. K. church. "W. H.

Schultz of Monticello, Minn., claims is owed him by Warner E. Brown of Veblen. S. D., is the basis of a suit for $1,000 which has been filed with the courts here. Schultz files an itemized bill for beard at $3.50 a week, giving the de- lendant credit for a day s work occa sionally, and also for shaves and hair cuts. The first week's board was due April 17, 188S. The plaintiff's claim for board is $315.75, with interest amounting to $259.95. The remainder of the $1,000 is for "damages."

Zimmerman Seed company. , Lillian Russet's Warning. bore reet: Bad Health Lillian Russell is a physical mar vel. Now in mature years, but hav ing preserved all the fresh beauty of youth. In the Chicago Tribune she says: "Care of the feet (the hardest rmr, worked members jl of the body) is absolutely essen tial to health. ri Constant irrita jjp tion from sore -I feet often causes "s serious nervous disorders, and . - nothing brings WTin VI tn t Vi lace more certainly. Here is the best treatment known to science for all foot ailments. It works through the pores and removes the cause: "Dis solve two tablespoonfuls of Calocide compound in a basin of hot water. Soak the feet in this for full fifteen minutes, gently massaging the sore parts." The effect is almost magical. All soreness disappears instantly. Corns and callouses can be peeled right off. It gives instant relief for bunions, aching feet, sweaty feet, chil blains and frost-bites. Any druggist has Calocide in stock or will quickly get it from his wholesale house. A twenty-five cent box usually cures the worst feet. Calocide is not a patent medicine. Don't waste money on un certain remedies. Insist on getting what you want from the druggist. , ASK.

Winnie Euhrfeind, Arthur and Angelina. Kansas City, Oct 10. "Please dear judge, hang papa or electrocute him." Such is the written request received by Judge Richard Latshaw, in a let ter addressed to him by three strange little children. The invalid mother defends her chil dren and the boy George, who wrote the letter, tells his story as follows: Don t y u think a fellow ought to die, who goes away and leaves us children to make a living for our selves and our sick mother?" The father is under arrest for a minor offense and were it within the desire of Judge Latshaw he could not commit the father to the gallows. The fact is that the husband and father has been absolutely without heart In the treatn ent of his family and the frank candor of the children has as tonished the community. The public has taken up the case and will see to it that hereafter the mother and children are given every care. hundred. 11:35 Sunday School Children in the Church Service. Rev. Robert Gordon, D.

While at present little equip ment for such exercise is on hand, it is planned to add to the present ap paratus and make both phases of the meetings as interesting and instructive as possible.

"Dr. Tinkle Tinker." a song number from the "Girl of My Dreams" is one of the many hits of that splendid mus ical comedy, which has created an un precedented success at the Illinois the ater, Chicago, Criterion theater, New York city, the Garrick theater, Phila delphia, and the Colonial theater, Boston. Majestic. With just one rehearsal and suffer ing from her broken arm which she keat in a sling throughout the play, Miss Genevieve Russell, leading lady with North Brothers' company, did credit to herself as Marian Stanton in Woman's WTay at tne Majestic last night. She will do the leads the rest cf the season. She was snven an ovation as she walked on the stage in the first act, and received a huge bouquet by her friends who appreciated her as lead ing lady last season. Giving her strong support as .How ard Stanton, was Mr. Chase. Mr. ayles as Mr. Lynch, the reporter, was true to life. He did not carry a nice leather notebook and long pencil as the majority of stage reporters do. Mr. Barnette was good as General Liv ingstone, but his voice was exceeding ly lusty for so old a man as the gen eral was supposed to be. The stage settings were the best seen this season, and the Hinkson Sign company which is making the special scenery deserve favorable mention. The entire company worked with a vim and together with the interesting plot, the play is one of the best at the Majestic this season. Novelty. Apdale's zoological circus, in which three Hymalayian bears, a Russian brown bear, dogs and monkeys per form, is the feature of the Novelty bill this week. The tricks of the animals are better than the paces of the aver age animal show and the clown ape, Joe, is worth seeing. The Daring Darts do sensational stunts on a swing ing ladder, including fancy sharp shooting when one of the men with a rifle shoots the cigar ash from the end of a cigar held in the other's mouth. Murray K. Hill is a genuine rapid fire monologist. Nodell & Kane, Hebrew comedians, do some entertaining work. Elsie Murphy, billed as a Coon Shout- er, sings three songs with a good long range voice. Her great hit is "Ever Loving Honey Man," by Leo Fiest. She says the ballad is brand new and like .' g .- " " - : t K t a- -;. : Janette Mclntyre in "The Girl of My Dreams." The music of "The Girl of My Dreams" is by Karl Hoschna, who has been compared to Suppe by some of the dramatic critics and who is a finished musician in every way, having had a thorough musical education in Vienna, the home of the great musicians, and who served in the Royal orchestra in that city for several years. He is also the composer of "Madame Sherry" and "Doctor De Luxe." The book of "The Girl of My Dreams" is by Wilbur D. Nesbit and Otto Hauerbach. Unlike other musical shows, every number in this piece is a distinct and separate hit. Especially is this so of "O-o-h (Maybe It's a Robber") and "Dr. Tinkle Tinker." Already these two big song hits are being sung all over the country and the theatergoers as well as the press are praising in the highest terms "The Girl of My Dreams." It will be seen here at the Grand tonight.
