Fuller was going to the M. K. & T. depot, and was near it, two men jumped up from tho ground and advanced to ward htm, evidently intending to com. mit robbery. Mr. Fuller pretended to draw a revolver (he had none) and or tiered them to stand off. One of the men remarked, "I guess we have waked up the wrong passenger," and both took to their heel. They either intended to rob lum, or assault somebody else, and found out that he was cot the man they - were after. New E.NTEiu-nisK.

An drew Kdgar, a miionary to the jmor and prisoner, who is traveling over the country visiting poor house, priiouo, etc. While here he visited the poor farm, and preached, and als; visited the jail and held two brief services. Jlr. Edgar seems to be thoroughly alive to his work, an 1 decs it "without money and without price." lie seems to meet with great success, ar.d is weh-omed among thow whom he is laboring for. Last winter lie kept a home for istrau gers in Weit Kansas City, and fed and lodged 2,000 bimgry and homeless tramps. He is undoubtedly doing a great work. Hot only for poor humanity, but for the Master's cause. He has the hearty recommendation of the. ministry. leading cii'zens", and from the press wherever he has labored. One object of his visit to towns is to awaken an interest in behalf of the un fortunate among christians of all denom inations. While here he made arrange ments with the pastors of different de nominations to visit tho poor house and prisons, firfct having obtained the coo sent of those in charge, once in each week. The following programme was arranged by him: First week in each month, Iter. C. II. Rice of the M. E. church ; second week in each month. Lurinda Rich, ot the Friends society ; third week, Rev. James Barnett. of the U. P. church ; fourth week. Rev. L. C. Ebey, of the Free Methodist church. Nursery agents are now nrtive and persistent.

Tho following item will interest many of our readers, as Mr. Adams formerly lived here, and has maty friends ia this vicinity: On last Friday evening Mr. B. F. Ad ams met with a very dangerous accident at his home north of town. It seems he was watcrius his bull in the stable. from a bucket, and had loosened the ani mal's rope that it might reacli the water. At that moment the bull became furious and making a plunge nt Mr. Adams ran it horu into his chest between me ribs and tossed him over its head, landing him on his back. It made another at tack which Mr. Adams repulsed by kick- ins it in the face, lie then managed to get to the house ; how, ho does not know. the animals horn cnicrcu just totue left of the center of the chest, above.lhe nipple, and tore out to tho left and lip- want, displaying liiree rios irom iwe breast .bone. The internal injuries-were very severe and the blood llowed very profusely. When we called on Mr. Ad ams Tuesday night, although not entire ly out ot Hanger, lie was resting very well, and we hope within a few weeks to see him around again. Walnut Valley Times. Id Memorlaui.

If Gabriel docs not take the Americans entirely by surprise, somo manufacturer of musical instruments will probably offer to donate an improved horn, to sound the final blast w ith. It strikes us that there would ba 4 close resemblance between such an advertisement and the following: A conductor on the M. K. & T found a quarantine affidavit at tached to the waybill for an old cook stove oa its way to Texas. The docu ment not only proved that the property described had been at Iola, Kansas, since July 1st, 1873 that no case of yel low fever had appeared in that vicinity, but also that had yellow fever or any other disease been there the Iola mineral water would have cured it nt once.

Tho brick work has been progress! 11 very well indeed, considering the few days of bad weather. The east wing and south front are completed, except towers. Brick work (except chimneys) will be completed this week. We have been asked several questions in regard to the building. WTe now ans wer them: The building is the same height as the old one, but the assembly room in the new building is two feet low er than It was In the old building. The chimney tops are to bo of stone, while the chlmnevs of the old -building were of galvanized iron, -.nd one of the towers is made open as mentioned before. Carpenter work is progressing along with the brick work. The roof is com pleted over the east wing and attic story except tin and slate. Hoof over attic h;U been reinforced with good, strong Inrn'tT, thirty doze bolts and ten iron rods through th trusses, and the roof is perfectly strong and safe. The building will be cncbsed about the last of November We have lost track of tlie stone cu ters. ; The storm, last week, scattered ns off the roof in a hurry. Wilcox stuck to the south gable until it was made secure. He looked like a drowned rat when he came down off the building. Our derricli fell, a few days ago, and came near Llttia us." The first thing we thought of after it tell was the mutual friends. Prof. Welch, of tho present Normal school faculty, made ua a call one day last week. Tho Professor took a goo-1 survey of the building, but he did not find out who the reporter was and who he is; but there is nothing like being on the god side of the teacher, ftr we are liable to call sometime. (Jus. Hurlburt rushed in on us a few days ago. Gus. is one of the Fremont township boys was glad to see hini. He reminded us of old times, the days when he and I went up ou Allen creek she is married now. O. P. Smith returned from Lawrence last evening. Sterling weal !o Dunlap yesterday and paid for that dinner. We step outside of the Normal yard, and notice Dave Owens' fine brick resi dence. He will have it completed by Chrisima.J.

Frank McC'ulloch, Ed. Borton and a creat many others cailevi curing tue week, and quite ft number of young la dies, but wc don't care to lose any more friends. A photograph man was around Satur day, and took some fine prctures of the building. Ed. Cunningham looks very natural in the picture. He looks as Inno cent as his last love. James Ginn nnd Mr. Miller, are put ting on cornice to day ; Mr. Traver stays with the boys: .Cupt. Dunbar is hauling sand ; Rev. Isaac Alien is a free Metho dist. The lost friends did not call, as they agreed. But would ask them, where was Moses when his light went out? W"e noticed Sunday moruiug quite a numlier of roosters sitting upon the Nor mal roof, sunning themselves like tur tles on a log, but what did Ihey do with tho nails Horace Bun Jrem -will call some time this week on a white horse. Oh, yes, wc heard that "Keno" went to Topeka, but he should have gone west, and pulled down his vest, and stoped at "Toledo," for he is deeply interested In that city. I have not seen the. girls late ly, (aud am not likely to see them soon,) but will vouch for them, and say we pity Americus. She can have our sympathy if not our support, until her 'squire returns. Wc will try and not loose any sleep while "Keno" is absent, for we all know that absence conquors love. There aio many lriemlt of Snmaicr, Who are kimt while flowers blix.m.

I ho 'squire intormed the young man of matrimonial ideas, that the law allowed a lee or three dollars for tying the connubial knot, but that cus tom frequently allowed a man who felt as though he was getting the worth ofi his money, to give as much more as he desired, that in no case would any change be given pack. 111c young teitow was welt pleased, said he would ante liberal ly, and that the judge shonldi have the job, saying that the day would shortly be set and due notice given. low the 'squire has considerable pride in regard to business or tins kind, and id order to ba "up" in all the little surroundings of such occasions, he purchased a book on etiquette and all lhc different forms of marriage ceremony he could find f rom which ho made" selections, until he had a ceremony which suited his taste. We soon iiecame aware there was something working on the judge h's haggard looks his inattention to ordinary bus iness was noticed by many; but the cause we discovered at last. The 'squire would spend hours every night, after all else was quiet, la practising his part he would marry imaginary couples. would then salute the bride, and, in fact. go through. 111s part until he was tin doubtclly prepared to marry a couple In first class style.
