Conway, Nortonviiie Midwinter. ripe Collecting a Fad at Audi torium Exposition. The sample collecting fever has reached its height at the Kansas Mid winter exposition at the Auditorium. Taking advantage of the small offer ings of the various booths is the de light of the kiddies, but this pastime is not confined to the youngsters. There are grown-ups that thoroughly enjoy going around taking u sip of sample lea here, and a hot pancake somewhere else. Not a few persons figure that they can more than make up for the price of b Jmission by getting together a collec tion of sample breakfast foods and other articles of diet to last for several days. Of course these persons belong to the class whose purses are not bulging through a surplus of coin. Then there are those who have been able to enjoy a whole meal at the Midwinter by soing first to one and then to another j booth and indulging in samples of good things to eat. .Tuesday evening of this week several persons purchased miniature pipes at one of the booths; it was not long be fore there was a 'run-' on the booth nnd almost every other person you met was marching around the hall with a pipe protruding from his or her mouth. Pipes were decidedly popular. Even a bull dog was going- around the hall with a pipe projecting from his mouth in approved style; he attracted consid erable attention. The crowds continue to be large. The vaudeville show is good: next week it will be better according to advance notice. The "original' Billy Van. and Dewey's dancing dolls will be the head liners.

POST, Cottonwood Postmaster Thinks His Office Feed Store. Cottonwood Falls, Jan. 24. When the Cottonwood Falls postmaster received a bale of New Mexico alfalfa by par cel post addressed to a resident here, he wondered whether or not his office was about to be turned into a feeu store. But when next a bag of corn was brought in by a local firm to be sent by parcel post to North Carolina he began to believe it in earnest. This is probably the first time that hay and corn has gone by parcel post in this state. The hay was sent from the ranch of George King at Springer. N. M., to D. K. Carter of this place and the bag of corn was mailed by Smith Brothers, a local firm, to Miss Mattie Upton, at Fayetteville, N. C. Both packages were less than the me dium weight limit called for in the parcel post regulations. DERS IS ARRESTED. He Is Indicted in Kansas Court for Obstructing Justice. Terre Haute. Jan. 24.-Eugene V. Debs, late Socialist candidate for president, was arrested here today on an indictment re turned against him in the federal court rot the Third district of Kansas. Debs Wiis charged with obstruct!!!? unt'co. The arrest was made by United States Marshal Tom Martin and David C- Ran kin from Indianapolis. The warrant was served in Debs' office and he put on tiis hat and accompanied .he officer. to the office of United States Commissioner Hall where-he furnished $l,u00 !ond ior his ap pearance at -the May term of the Unitiid States court of the Third Kansas district. Debs brands the -indictment as -an effort to ruin the "Appeal to Reason." Debs wrote an expose of alleged condi tions in the Fort Leavenworth prison for the Appeal to Reason, which caused a government investigation but the matter printed in the Appeal to Reason was considered obscene by the federal grand jury and action was brought against the editors for sending it through the mails. The witnesses in this case, it Is alleged, Mr. Debs encouraged to leave the jurisdic tion of the court. MURPHY AND WOLFF.

Cheyennes Swing Axes Instead of Tomahaws In Montana. Washington, Jan. 24. Cheyenne In dians in Southern Montana have waged successful warfare on the Black Hills beetle, against which they took the war path more than twelve months ago, that the department of agriculture an nounced the immensely valuable timber in that state virtually was saved and the onward march of the tree-killing insect was believed to have been stopped. The beetle, which first ap peared in the Black Hills of South Da- j noia, accorumg to me ueparimeni. Kiuea more than one billion feet, board measure, of timber in that section be fore moving on. When the ravages of the insect were discovered the department found the pest was approaching in numbers, the Tongue River Indian reservation in Montana. The Indians were called up on and brandishing axes in place of tomahawks, attacked infected trees with such vigor that the invasion of the beetle was checked. The cost of the incited Indian up rising, was $903 while the department estimates that the stumpage value of the trees sacrificed will approximate $125,000.. In addition the checking of the onward march of the pest undoubtedly has--saved the rich forests to the west ward. - - " NOTES OF SENATE. A bill giving cities in Kansas authority to levy a tax for the purpose of building club and reading rooms for the boys and girls of the community, was introduced in the senate this morning-by J. W. Howe, senator from Dickinson county. The levy is from one-half to one mill. Senator Stave - of Osage county wou'd have a state -tax for dogs. One dolla for males, and two dollars for females is his-' provision. A dog fund Is to b" created, . according to the bill introduced in the senate this ' morning, and the money used to pay the damages to sheeo owners caused by dogs. This would not affect the city dog tax. Senator Troutman of Shawnee offered a bill today by request forbidding trespass ing on railway property in Kansas- It would fine a man for boarding trains, cars or engines unless he w a passen ger or employee and would allow only employees to walk on the right f lay of railroads except at crossings. The b:il is supported by the railroads and is. they declare, the only hope of reducing the trespassing dangers in this state. Senator Huffman offered a bill today making it necessary that all physicians as well as inmates of a house report tc county or city health officers the pres ence of a contagious disease. The senate adjourned this noon to meet Monday afternoon at 4 o'clock. . "Star of Bethlehem" at Cozy. Monday and Tuesday the Cozy the- ater will have as a special feature a ' three-real production, "The - Star of ; Bethlehem," the story of the Birth of ( Christ.

THE STATE ACCOUNTANT, TOO His Work Incorporated in Of fice of Auditor. Senator Howe of Dickinson Author of . Acts. Two official "heads at the state house will fall and the state maintenance ex pense will drop $40,000 if bills introduc ed in the senate this morning by J. W. Howe, senator from Dickinson county, pass both branches of the leg islature. Senator Howe in his acts which are said to be supported strong ly by Governor Hodges and which in corporate administration policies, pro poses to combine the state agriculture board, the academy of science and the state horticultural board under the control of one secretary with executive power. In other bills offered at the same time Senator Howe recommends the abolishment of county assessors throughout Kansas, and the office of state accountant. - The Howe bill goes one step further in the reorganization of the state ag ricultural and horticultural boards. In the year 1914 at the general election he would have placed on the ballots the office of the combination board. The secretary would be elected by the people. The president, vice president, and other officers would be elected by the members and the executive com mittee. 7 State Accountant Is Doomed. The office of state accountant is under death penalty by the adminis tration in power in 'both houses. The. Howe bill covering this ground would drop this official title from the state payroll and transfer the books and office necessities to the department of the auditor of state. Here rf it was found advisable to hire extra help for the work, the auditor would notify the governor and proper steps would be taken to appoint a person to handle the prescribed duties of the- office. The state accountant bill is the sec ond act of this nature to be offered to the senate. Senator Waggener, of Atchison, introduced a measure In the upper house Thursday. In cutting the expense of county as sessor in the counties of . the state, Senator Howe proposes that this work be handled by the towmship assessors. In case the county commissioners feel that the emergencies in their territory demands extra help they will be given authority to appoint a. clerk with the powers of a county assessor to take care of the work.
