So far as Ford county is concerned the services buggim in the builny hug and other of 165 statesmen at Topeka are not more or less "intimate" variations or the turkey-trot, don't go. At least not when Patrolman John W. Hooper is looking, and that officer of the law was a veritable little Bright Kyes at a club dance given In Armory hall. Officer Hooper, who constitutes Hutchinson's only dancing commission er, had warned the dancers in advance that they must not do any of the for bidden dances, and then when a couple started out with the music right in front of his eves, that was too much, and he called the festivities off for the evening. "I'll see that you lose your star for this," said "Jack" Martin, who has been manager at the club dances. "We'll talk about that tomorrow. Right now, this dance is off. Get your wraps and go home; it's all over," said the patrolman. I time. Complaints that oy was a nine wu that "tmconfined" at the Thursday nigh., dances at the Armory hall, have been circulating about for several weeks, and for the last two weeks, the dance lias been under police ' surveillance. Officer Hooper was detailed to watch the festivities. There is some dispute as to the dance that was in progress when the officer needed to effect a jury reform. A case was tried in the district court during this term with but nine -Jurors. The Jury in the case preceding was still out when the Coy & Burno vs. Cord case came up for trial and but 0 venire men were available. Both sides agreed that as far as they were concerned this would be enough. The trial proceeded. Court officials here say it is the first time they remember of this irregularity being allowed. WHEAT ACREAGE IS LARGE. Zurich Dealers Have Shipped 180 Car loads of 1912 Crop. Zurich, Feb. 3. The wheat acreage near Zurich for 1913 is fully as large as last vear. The wheat growers sav the crop prospects are good at this i League, will draft a ine Lnion faciiic omciais ciaim station has shipped out more wheat from the crop of 1912 than any- other station on the Colby branch be tween here and Oakley. From July last, when the last crop began to move, to the present, the two elevators at Zurich have handled close to 180 carloads. The number of oars of wheat shipped out in 1912 was 194 Only two carloads of emigrant goods signaled that the doings were over for were shipped from here to other lo- : anore insist that calitics. Zurich is located on the fam ine evening. 1 - - - . , . -. , The dancers insist that it was a very modest turkey trot, while the officer insists that the aance close ly resembled the accepted version of the "grizzly bear.'" To distinguish between these two new dances requires a true critic. The accepted difference between the "bear" and the "turkey trot" is that there is less progress with tne teet ana more action with the body In the former. On the walls of Armory hall is a large cardboard sign which says: "Bunny hugs, grizzly bear, and other similar dances are positively barred. This means you." CHASE "VAGS" WITH DOGS. ' JUDGE TOl'M) OLD FRIEND. Former Prosperous Farmer and Law yer Goes Booy.e Route. Atchison Kan.. Feb. 3. Pale and shaking, the bent figure of a .once Strang man was brought before Judge Church White in police court. "Drunk and unable to take care of himself," announced the recording of ficer. , The Judge took one look at the man before him. . "Great Heavens!" ne exciaimeu. "Man alive, what brought you this?" "Booze," was the reply. The arrested man was John Archer, formerly a respected citizen and able lawyer of Holton. Kan. He is now an inmate of the soldiers' home at Fort Irfavenworth. He was on his way from St. Joseph to the post yesterday, and at the depot he was so intoxicated that he was unable to step from one train to the other. r 'Archer was one of the most able men I ever knew," said Judge White. 'Twenty years ago he sold a valuable farm near Holton. and studied law. He made an excellent lawyer, but he took to drink, and it got him." Bloodhounds to Free City From the Hobo Pest. St.. John, Kan., Feb. 3. Jacob Koelsch. proprietor of the Just Right kennels, Richard township, has re ceived "a couple of genuine English bloodhounds for use in tracing crim inals in this section of the state.

Wellington, Kan., Feb. 3. Guy Marshall, 35 years old, piano salesman for a local house, was thrown on the track of the Southern Kansas railway three miles east of this city last night, when his team ran HU'T. Marshall was ci t li hi- stnnnpH nr to killed by the fall and as no one saw the accident nis Dooy remained on tne rails until it was run over by a westbound passenger some time after. Marshall came here four years ago from Bolton, Iowa. He leaves a wife and son. Dodge City, Kan.. Feb. 3. A sugges tion that Kansas cities of the first and second class should have an auditor supervised by the state was made here by Sam Gallagher, city clerk, yester day. Mr. Gallagher thinks the office would be self-supporting, if not a rev enue maker for the state. "There are few towns that would not pay $100 a year to have the city books audited every 6 months," said the Dodge official. "It would introduce a universal system of bookkeeping, teach city clerks tRe most efficient methods of handling accounts, aid new officials and keep the taxpayers at all times conversant with city financial affairs." The Kansas Municipal League has suggested many improvements in city management. Dodge is a member of the league and Prof. Richard R. Price, Dean of the Extension Division, Kan sas University, and President of the bill creating the office for presentation to this legisla ture. Some cities already publish quarterly reports of their financial condition and this custom has spread rapidly in re cent years. But each city has its own method of bookkeeping, handling ceme tery funds, water, light, sewer, sprink ling and other city improvements. Some methods are excellent. Some are abominable. State supervision and instruction, it is believed, will remedy the existing defects. I METHODISTS CONVERT 300; Christian Church Begins Revival When Methodists Close.. Pratt, Kan., Feb. 3.

Stops Go An accident in which Gene Charles worth sustained painful injuries 'end ed the wrestling match between the injured man and Lewis Hoffman in I the T. A. A. club rooms Saturday i night before either man had scored a ' fall. The accident came after the men had spent several minutes trying to get each other to his knees. Hoff man went in with a rush to break through Charlesworth's guard. He did so but threw Charlesworth through the ropes. The later fell off the platform on which the match was stretched and struck the floor. He struck his nose on the rough edge of the boards outside the ring and his nose was cut through both nostrils. The match was called off. But the entertainment was a lively one aiid deserving of a better crowd. "Kit" Carson and Burnett, a Santa Fe shopman, put on the best match, the crowd cheering Carson for hi3 gameness and Burnett for his clever work. The first fall was decided in eight minutes and the second in two and a half. Both went to Burnett. Young Hoffman and Anderson put on an interesting exiuunmu wm-n wem. to Hoffman and four local boys boxed three rounds each just for the fun of the thing. FACULTY BEATS O. U. SENIORS.

Capa blanca now leads Jaffe. whom he is scheduled to meet, by 2 Vx points. and by defeating the Aggies a pair of times on the Manhattan courts. There will at least be this admitted. Muggsy McGraw should be able to tell young Thorpe something about base ball as it should be played. Note to J. E. H. Why not make the Kling thing an issue in the city cam paign. It would not only arouse con siderable interest but might prevent the revival - of the alleged "wet and dry" question. You can play it almost safe by of fering a prize for the club that does not claim to have Thorpe under con tract.

Just for that the town ought to have a $15,000 team. The Kan sas League, which grew out of the old C. K. circuit baa had many ups and downs. Towns have tried it a year or so and dropped out.
