TALES OF BUFFALO, Elbert Hubbard Writes of Jones of Garden City. Born in Hell's Bend Xear Writ er's Birthplace. Elbert Hubbard, one of the dis tinguished admirers of Buffalo Jones, has the following to say of Garden City's former citizen: Eeven miles to the east of where I was born. In McLean county, Illinois, Is the classic district known as Hell's Bend, was born Buffalo Jones, the best man who ever put his legs over a cayuse. Buffalo Jones Is getting along to wards 70 years of age, but Time has treated him gently. He is lithe, lanky. agile and loves a horse, ' Buffalo Jones has preserved the buffalo from extinction. Through his energy, in catching the young buffalo on the plains and domesticating them we now have herds, or fine speci mens at least. In a great number of Varks and zoological gardens all over the world. Jones took two cowboys and ten Colorado horses and went to Africa, with the intent of rounding up those savage things which are supposed to claw, chew, destroy and consume everything that comes in their path way. Here, in America, he had captured mountain Hons, dozens of them, full grown, by lassoing them, hog-tying them, placing a bag over their mouths, then putting the beast on a horse and carrying the animal triumphantly into cam p. eventually selling him to some circus.' Ills Tour a Triumph. Buffalo Jones is not afraid of any thing that has claws or teeth. He had captured dozens of mountain lions, and this filled him with a de sire to go across the sea and do in Africa, in a bigger way, what he had done in America. His tour was the triumph of the American cowboy and the American horse. The wild boar chases Buffalo Jones and Lovelace, the cowboy, chases the boar. They bring his pig Ship down close to the camera. They rope him, throw him end over end in the dust, tie him, and play horse with him to their hearts' content. Then they simply unrope him, give him a kick, and off he goes into the desert to find his family and tell about being chased by a go-devil-a-horseback. So they catch giraffes and zebras. The zebra, we are told, is never sub dued when caught full-grown; but the camera shows us. Buffalo Jones throwing his rope over a wild zebra, jerking him endwise and tying him fast. Cowboy Rides the Zebra. The cowboy Jumps oft his horse, rushes up to the zebra, unties the rope and as the zebra gets up . on his feat, the man leaps to his back, without saddle or bridle, and away goes the zebra kicking up -he yellow dust of .Africa and all the time the cowboy is basting him over the head with a Stetson, his thrill ki-yis fill ing the circumambient ether. The next thing is to catch a lioness. full-grown, wild, and the most terrible "animile" on earth. The lion is kii.gi of the beasts but Mr. Lion always gets out of the way when Mrs. Lion talks piccolo. Buffalo Jones shows us pictures of how he chased the lioness through the tall grass, - how she hides, then turns about, leaps after her pur suers, follows them, changes her mind and starts to run away. Catching the Lioness. The Americans are right after her. Jones flings a rope, catches her by the hind foot. Lovelace throws and i lands the lady by her front legs. The I horses stand stiff, holding the beast captive. Buffalo Jones ties her feet and muzzles her mouth. They cut down trees, make a sort of a raft or stone boat, place the Queen of the Jungle on this stone-boat, attach their lassoes to the raft, tie the lassoes around the horns of the saddles, mount and away they go. Dozens of animals they roped chetahs, wildcats, leopards, warthogs, ebhas and never a weapon . need. Not an animal injured or hurt. Some of them, no doubt, were, badly scared and have had nervous prostration since, for fear Buffalo Jones would come back. Nothing more romantic, nothing more poetic, nothing more courageous was ever seen in forum of coliseum, on field or flood, than these feats of Buffalo Jones and his cowboy friends. Within two seconds of dis aster they stood in their stirrups and flung their rope into the face of danger, lauehing at Death. Bully boy. Buffalo Jones. Hell's Bend is proud of you so is the whole United States. And a few of us love you, you grizzly old rogue with the boyish heart. Ki-yi, and yet again, kl-yi.

Then you can't fail to be Interested in the fam ily history of two blue blooded young persons whose engagement was an nounced a few days ago, and who will be wedded in splendor in Paris next month. The story of how their an cestors rose in the world and came to be very Important reads like a fairy story. Oh, yes! We had al most forgotten to mention that the young folks here referred to are Miss Helen McDonald Stallo of Cincinnati and Prince Michel Anne Charles Joachim Napoleon Bonaparte Murat of Paris. Michel is a real prince and has scads of money and lives in a palace and is a social hero. But his fore father, who lived back in the great Napoleon's time wasn't half so well off at least in the beginning. According to all the histories, the first Prince Murat took an active part in the first revolution that overthrew monarchy in France. He was one of the people, being the son of a down trodden innkeeper. His first job was that of stable boy. He ran away from home and Joined the army. - Dis charged as a soldier, he became a draper's assistant and made speeches in his native village against social caste and for the equity of all men. Later, he enlisted ugain and became a captain. He gained the attention of Napoleon, for he was the most expert CLUB NOTES.

This committee representing as it does all of the federation membership, and not any political party or faction, will of course champion only those measures that are nonpolitical, and in which all good people are interested. Members of the federation will speak to the legislature through this legisla tive committee. The variety of the work undertaken by the General Federation of Woman's clubs is as the variety of human in terests. The industrial and social con ditions department has for its new head. Mrs. A. E. Chantler of Tacoma, Wash., a former teacher; and later "a neswpaper woman. A year ago she was appointed assistant state labor commissioner for the state of Wash ington. Her department is especially interested in the question of a living wage for women and girls. Admitting that the low wages paid them is in some cases due in part to Inefficiency, it is greed that is chiefly responsible, and whatever the cause, it is a menace, and society must find a remedy. The department hopes to present the ques tion to the women of the country in THIS HEIRESS AND HER PRINCE "A V iWf ' -; -'-'.;-'x:t:'.:V.-V "teT ' " 5 Stll. cavalryman France ever possessed. He rose from one rank to another. At 28 he married Caroline, Napoleon's sister, and the great emperor made him king of Naples. The histories also tell us that Murat lost his head after Napoleon's down fall. It went into the same basket that carried the heads of some of Napoleon's other friends. But he left to the world a heroic name and a long line of princes and princesses. Now as to the ancestry of Miss Stallo, proud heiress of Cincinnati. Her grandfather was the late Alex ander McDonald, one of the dukes of Standard Oil. He started life as a teamster in Cincinnati. While he dreamed of a $2 raise the Empress Eugenie, aunt of the present Prince Michel, was the reigning queen of France. It is hardly likely that he ever saw visions of a granddaughter of his marrying into that blue blood ed family. , But fortune smiled on McDonald and when he died not long ago he left a couple of millions or so, one-half of which goes to Miss Stallo. It is said the present . match be tween Prince Michel and Miss Stallo is a pure love affair. They met three months ago at a dinner given by Miss Stuyvesant in Paris. The prince fell madly in love and soon asked, and was promised, the hand of Miss Stallo. such a way as to insure it3 settle ment. The committee will have in mind, also, the child labor problem, and will work to secure mothers' aid bills and mothers' pension bills in the different states. They have also map ped out a study of immigration prob lems relating to women and children, and will urge the employment of wo men inspectors in all ports of entry. Bin. Benjamin Harrison.

Harper Doctors Beliere Pedro Ariaz Will Recover. Harper, Kan., Jan. 18. An out break here in the camp of sixty Mexicans who are at work for the Santa Fe railroad at this point result ed in the shooting of three workmen, two of whom probably will die. The trouble started last night when a strange Mexican from Alva, Ok., came to the camp for a visit with his countrymen. Reports are that ht has always had a bad reputation among his people and his bad character mixed with a quantity of bad whisky, furnished by accommodating bootleg gers, started all the trouble." The Mexican, whose name is Pedro Ariaz, and a few of his friendsv spent the night drinking and next morning Were in a bad humor. Next morning Timekeeper Levi Lut trell, who occupies a commissary car adjoining those occupied, by the Mexi can workmen, heard several shots fired in a nearby bunk car. He imme diately started out to investigate and upon leaving his car saw a laborer fall from a door of a car a short rtistance away. Blood was streaming from the man's head. He was able to run around a car out of sight. On the ground near the car was another Mexican shot through the body. As Luttrell approached the car the Oklahoma Mexican jumped to the ground. The timekeeper asked what the trouble meant, and for answer the man drew a revolver and started for him. Luttrell was . armed with an automatic revolver. He ran around the end of the bunk car and at the same time drew his weapon. Duel Between White and Mexican. The Mexican was evidently out for trouble. As he ducked under the bunk car he fired one shot at Luttrell. The shot went over the timekeeper's head. Luttrell opened fire at the ap proaching man, shooting seven times in rapid succession. Every shot, it was afterwards found, took effect in the Mexican's body, one bullet strik ing him in the head. As soon as the Mexican fell to the ground, Simon Marez. the laborer who was shot in the head by the bad man. rushed upon him with a knife and but for timely interference by Luttrell and other Mexicans would have cut the throat of the man who shot him. Thirteen Bullet Holes in Mexican. City authorities were immediately notified of the shooting and Drs. C. W. Winbigler and A. H. Fraser were on the ground In a few minutes. Ex aminations showed that the Mexican who caused the trouble was in a seri ous condition. Thirteen bullet holes were found on his body and head but strange to say physicians believe he stands a chance to recover. Simon Marez had only a slight scalp wound. It is believed that Merican Tanez, the Mexican shot in the body will die, the bullet fired by the whisky crazed man evidently having penetrated his stom ach and intestines - Levi Luttrell, the young timekeeper, whose coolness and courage doubtless saved the lives of a number of Mexi cans, has been completely exonerated for his part in the shooting and no charges will be brought against him. This is . the second shooting affair within two years among Mexicans working for the railroads at this city. IT IS A MILD WINTER, Mosquitoes in New York and Blue Birds in .Virginia. New York, Jan. 18. Klectric fans buzzing in some office luildings here, mosquitoes in New York, a snowless Vermont, blue birds and robins in Virginia, apiple trees budding in Mary land, outdoor baseball practice in Phil adelphia and dandelion picking in many places are reported today, attest ing to the unusually mild winter in the east. Popular belief that yesterday was one of the warmest January days this city ever experienced, is borne out by search of the weather records, showing that yesterday's 59 degrees is the highest the thermometer has regis tered for January 17, since the weath er bureau was established 43 years ago. The Hudson river is being navigated at a later date than at any time since 1810, when Robert Fulton was running his steamer. Car of Neptune, between New York and Albany as late as Jan uary 20. It is customary to close the river for navigation December 15. Even in Maine most of the lakes and rivers are open, but the ice comipanies are still expecting two weeks of zero weather which is necessary to assure a good ice crop. WHOLESALE BEGGING. Rockefeller Receives Average of 500 Letters Daily. Washington, Jan. 18. A clearing house for begging letters sent to philanthropists would be one of the adjuncts of the $100,000,000 Rocke feller foundation, a federal charter I for which congress on Monday will be asked to grant accoraing 10 Jerome D. Greene, former secretary of Har vard university, and now an adviser Of the Standard Oil magnate. Mr. Greene is here seeking to have con gress at this session incorporate the organization which John D. Rocke feller is anxious to endow. "Mr. Rockefeller alone receives an average of 500 begging letters every day," said Mr. Greene today. "They ask financial- aid in sums ranging from $5 to amounts in seven figures. "Under present conditions it is ut terly impossible for Mr. Rockefeller even with the assistance of a large staff, personally to give attention to this volume of correspondence and doubtless many worthy objects of philanthropy have gone without the financial support they sought. "However, with the Rockefeller foundation in existence, having an annual income of $5,000,000 and a sufficient corps of trained Investiga tors, it would be possible to handle not alone that part of Mr. Rockefel ler's correspondence but the same kind of mail reaching other philan thropists as well, with justice and dis patch." Mr. Greene declared that an analysis of the average day's collection of beg ging letters received by the oil mag nate showed that they came from 22 countries, representing every continent. FREE BElif.1 FIRST Ironworker Goes Home - to Family on Release From Pen. ! Not Allowed to Tell His Com rades Good-Bye. Leavenworth, Kan, Jan. 18. Dressed in the same suit of dark cheviot he wore on January 1, when with thirty three other labor leaders, he entered the federal prison to serve a three year term imposed on him at Indian apolis, for his connection with an al leged nation-wide dynamite plot, Charles E. Beum, of Minneapolis, stepped forth from prison this after noon, a free man under $30,000 bond. He was the first of the imprisoned labor leaders to be released As the prison wagon in which he rode passed out, Beum looked back and saw some of his former comrades swinging constructed by the men. They were j Ignorant of the fact that the wagon which passed beneath them contained Beum, but he knew they were up there and expressed regret that he could not see them. He had previously been re fused permission to shake hands , with Tifo ,i rloo onA 1 Q rl Vill t O TT1 Imi t f t fl say a hasty goodbye to Frank M.

"There isn't a man in the bunch that is discouraged the least Dit, ne saia. Beum was the only man who showed emotion when "dressed in" at prison, and from his conversation today, it is apparent that his thoughts are all of his wife and children. "I'm going home to my family. I haven't seen them for four months," said Beum, with a quiver in his voice. "Sore" at Reporters and Detectives. Beum left prison in a wagon and he was accompanied by Deputy Warden Mackey. No reporters were present and it was Beum's expectation that he would get away unrecognized. When he arrived in this city and went to a telegraph office to wire his family he was identified and asked concerning his plans for the immediate future. He was visibly annoyed and declared, with some heat: , . "See here, I have been hounded by reporters and detectives for six months: yes, longer than that; all I want now is to find some place where I can Just sit down and think without someone asking me what I am thinking about. After having a draft cashed at a bank and supplying himself with cigars at a drug store, Beum bade farewell to Mackey in a formal manner. "Where to?" inquired the porter, as Beum stopped at the Pullman steps at 11:30 o'clock tonight. "Minneapolis," . returned the labor leader, in a cheery voice, as he drew forth his railway ticket and climbed the steps of the coach Beum's first meal outside the prison was a sumptuous one. "Just bring me a double order or everything." he told the man in the white apron, and the iron worker did full justice to the order. On a quiet stroll about the streets, Beum met John Mickey, a local iron worker, whom he had known. Together they attended a theater and then went to the station, where they chatted an hour while waiting for the train. The Speed Limit. The policeman ar rives on the scene.
