KAXSAS PRODUCTS PRAISED.
Great Crowd Sees Them at Chicago
Chicago, Nov. 24. Thursday was
jvansas uay at tne United States Land
and Irrigation exposition being held
in the big Coliseum building here.
Kansas products and Kansas possi
bilities and accomplishments were ex
toled and the visitors at the show were
greatly impressed. Kansas surely
made a big hit with Chicago and Chi
cago visitors. Dr. A. R. Vansickle
was chairman of the Kansas program
in the rooms of the Union Pacific
railroad. The rooms were jammed
and Kansas drew much praise. The
feature of the Kansas exhibition at
the land show is that the products are
not doctored. They appear here just
as they did when they were in actual
cultivation in Kansas soil and they
compare more than favorably with
other exhibits on the floor.
REPUBLICANS TO MEET DEC 12.
Capper, Ryaa and 500 Others to At

Kansas City. Nov. 24. Kansas Repub
licans will hold a big "pow wow" in
Kansas City, Kan., December 12. Repub
licans from all parts of the state have
been invited. A dinner for 500 will be
given after the meeting.
The members of the Kansas supreme
court; Arthur Capper, Republican can
didate for the nomination for governor;
Frank Ryan, also spoken of as a. guber
natorial possibility, and other leading
Republicans are included in the list of
- China vs. Mexico.
Thj (Chinese minister to Mexico
has concluded his investigation into
the wholesale mu6'ering of Chinese
citizens during thei Maderlst revolu
tion. He finds that no less than S24
Chinese were killed. 317 by. eeidiers.
Of these,. 303 were killed in one day
tt Torreon. Although unarmed and
innocent of any wrontrdoinir. thev were
shot clown wherever found. Not even
tne children 5 years of age . were
spared, and the bodies of the massa
cred were stripped and mutilated.
"These men," wrote a Mexican eye
witness of the soldiers, "who wore on
their hats the images of the holy child
of Tongo, our lady of Guadalupe, the
master of mercy, and of their patron
saints, had no mercy for any one.
Their work became an ecstacy." In
addition, property -alued at $1,137,
227.04 was destroyed in Torreon and
elsewhere. The property loss is not
so great as that when the Maine was
blown up; the number of lives lost is
grt ater. If, therefore, it was justifi
able to go to war with Spain to avenge
the Maine. China has an even stronger
casus belli against Mexico. We can
well imagine what a burst of anger
would have swept over- the United
States had those 303 mutilated dead
in Torreon been American citizens,
and very much fear that the "maneu
ver division" would have been over
the border in a brief space of time.
But the heathen Chinee goes at it
differently; instead of sending ships
to the Mexican coast, he is quietly but
firmly femanding the apology and sat
isfaction required and fixed by inter
national law. And this he should re
ceive as promptly as the English were
recompensed for the firing on the HullJ

teaspoonfuls glycerine. If witch-hazel

HOG CHOLERA STIUL. RAGES.
A. C. Plant Is Now Turning Out
Manhattan, Kan., Nov. 2 4. The
Kansas Agricultural college now is
able to supply the demand for anti
hog cholera serum. Its plant now is
turning out the serum at the rate of
about 7,500 doses a week or a little
more than 1,000 a day. This does not
mean that the calls are fewer or less
insistent. The situation is about the
same as it has been for weeks. Hut
the college has increased its capacity
for manufacturing serum.
rjr. f. S. Bchoenleber, state 'eteri
narian at the agricultural college, still
Is urging life immunity J"or breeding
hogs especially. This is "done by the
double or simultaneous method of
vaccinating. The hog is vaccinated
first with serum only. Ten days or
two weeks later it is again vaccinated.
But this time a small quantity of vir
ulent blood or virus is injected with
the serum. This method is especially
v-ecommendeii if cholera already is in
7e herd or if the animals are fat or
very highly bred. It makes a hog im
mune from cholera for life. There
should be no danger. Dr. Schoenleber
says, of starting cholera or spreading
the disease when this method is used.
In several of the largest counties of
Kansas the farmers have formed se
rum clubs to buy $1,000 worth of the
