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
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

GRAIN BY P. 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
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.
With u 10-round match between
Tommy Murphy and Willie Wolff for

INDIANS SAVE TREES.
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.

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
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.
