Sakk Bi kolahy. Burglary in Ameri
cus has become somewhat monotonous.
Leah Bros., J. D. Gilison, M. W. Gibson,
and Brown & Co., have till been bur
glarized within the last few mouths and
last night the safe or J. S. Gibson was
blown open and roblted of its contents,
which fortunately for J. S. G., was not
exceeding $20.00. The store room was
entered by going through the Window,
and Him- in the burglars drilled a hole
in tho : side of the safe and blew the
doors clear off the hinges They then
pried out the cash Ijox. There is a sledge
aud chisel left liehint!, supposed to have
lieen stolen fr.m Wood's blacksmith
shop. At this writing there is no clue
to the burglars. I am sorry that I can't
say that there was $10,000 in the safe
that was overlooked by the burglars il
would make them feel so badly.
Since writing the above 1 have learn
ed that the dry goods .store of J. D. Gib
son and M. W. Gibson's gncery were
both broken open, but they do not seem
to have appropriated any giKxls.
Bernheisel & IiOwry have their goods
marked so low that even the burglars
were ashamed to steal them. They also
have a large stock and as great a variety
as has ever been kept in Americus. They
buy for spot cash, aud by that means
can' always "give as good prices as can
lie had either iu Emporia or Americus.
If you went a dime's worth of goods, try

PrarMdlnri of the Kannaa HaptWt State
- The twenty-first annual meeting of the
Kansas Baptist State convention con
vened io this city on Thursday, the 10th
instand remained in session over Sun
day. There was quite a " hand
some representation presentlnclud
Ing about sixty ministers from
different parts of the st&le, who were as
fiue a looking body of men as we have
ever seen assembled iu Emporia.
The formal exercises opened Thursday
afternoon at 2 o'clock p. m., when the
annual meeting of the Kansas Minis
terial Union was held. The programme
included : a very able and exhaustive
essay on "Sell Culture in the
Pastorate," by Rev. P. J. Williams,
Mining Notes From Various -Lot-aHtles.
The Olga mine, Stray Horse gulch,
owned by Phillip Zang, tbe brewer of
Denver, Air. Witleliorg.'of the Colorado
Journal, and Mr. Rciubold, of Leadville,
owning , and , respectively, has
just struck a soiid body of rich carbon
ates. This strike makes the mine worth
$80,000 to $100,000, The strike is not
deep, aud will give an impetus to the
mining interests of Stray Horse gulch.
Tuesday work was resumed on the
Morning Star, Climax, Amie, Robert E
Lee, Hibern'a and a number of other
leading properties at Leadville. Tim
Foley states that be bad applications for
work from at least a thousand miners,
while at most of the mines the majority
of the old hands have been re-engaged.
A big strike has been made in the
Copper Bottom lode, situated in John
son's gulch near Silver Cliff. Tbe rein
matter is a carlionateformation and runs
152 ounces In silver.
. New arrivals from the Defiance dis
trict, Ute reservation, report tbat-twelve
mines showing pay mineral have been
struck there. Assays of specimens run
as high as 300 ounces. No Indians have
yet been seen by the prospectors.
The Miner Boy mine, on Breece hill,
Leadville, is looking particularly well at
present. Some very high grade gold
ore has been struck in the bottom of the
shaft. The tunnel rnnninginto the hill
from South Evans gulch will soon Up
the ore body.' - :
The road to Red Cliff is said to be
fairly lined with prospectors on their
way to the Roarjn Forks hy. way of Ea
gle river route. "
Very important discoveries are said to
have been,, lately ' made in Tennessee
dark. The chances are that the carbon
ate belt extends throughout the park. -
Arrangements were completed

received. This was followed bv ' an exe- - Wednesday by which the men employed

by Rev. Dr. L. et.net, which gave evi
dence of much scriptural research. An
exccllAit essay tm the "Pre requisites to
the Ijortl a tupper," by Kev. A. I- V ail,
of Wichita, completed the interesting
programme for the afternoon, and an ad
journment was tuado till 8 o'clock p. m.
The evening programme wax opened
by an.essay o Uw "Gaty-itml 2aitrh-.

much favorable comment. A paper on
"Ordination to the ministry what con

with great acceptability to his hearers.
"Our Duty to Temperance and the Con

Fryer hill coutains the most wonderful
ore UeMMit ever found in the ' world.
Since its discovery fully sixteen mil
lions ol dollars worth of precious metal
has lieen taken therefrom and two-thirds
of thr production of Leadville, or, say a

Bntnl Additions to tlie New York Cen
tral t'ark Slu4ciiui.
j.rom jjie Kcw York Times.
Among the recent additions of interest
to the department of Geology iu the
Museum of Natural History at Central
Park arc some monster bones, taken
from the auc.ient seas of Kansas ami
Colorado, and reDrescnlinir a race f
creatures which had reached the maxi
mum of physical growth known on this
efooe. rue discoveries were onjr'nany
made by Prof. Mudgc, recently access
ed, whose name is connected with all
the important discoveries of the great
west, ana bv iror. jwarsn.
The states of Texas and Colorado, dur
iner what is known in ecological par
lance as the age of reptiles, contained
great salt and fresh water inland seas,
whose swamos and low-lands swarmed
with creatures of herculean dimensions.
The mautaite terrt. or bad h.nds of
Colorado, and the arid, chalky deserts
of Kansas are the bed of these ancient
seas, and on account of the sterility and
barrenness of the country, very few peo
ple, except occasional miners, penetra
ted them. Finally, science inserted the
entering wedge, an exticditlon crossed
the wastes, and scenes were opened to
view that eoualexl in truth the exairger
alions of Verne. The dry. chalky sand
had been worn bv wind and rain into a
thousand different shapes. Castles and
bastions of Immense size towered aloft.
Hanked bv living buttresses of nature's
own design. Spires, sharp and jagged.
Pierced the air. rising from domes sug
eestivc of Moorish desigus and the Al-
conda, while the red, yellow and blue
clays gave to the whole a fantastic ap
pearaucc. In forming these quaint
shapes, the eJeuiciiU ex postal to view in
numerable bones anil skeletons of forms
that once swam over the spot. Prof.
Marsh says: "Iu one place I counted
the remains of five huge uionsters spread
upon "the plain.". -Jiotue of the bones.
It was found, were portions of reptiles
related to the alligator and crocodile
Others apparently belonged to the skele
tons of sen serpents. So complete ure
the remains thai a restoration ot the
skeletons eutire will be a comparatively
easy matter. Fort Riley, Kansas, stauds
upon the shores ol this prehistoric, waste.
The basin of this aucient oceans fills the
great tract lyiug between Missouri
and the Rocky Mountains, ami ex
tending 'from the Gulf ol Alex
ico - uu uiikuowu distance to the
north. The disturbances that ended the
preceding erea caused a general eleva
tion of the surface, and gradually the
seas and lakes became dry land. The
sea bottom, which is of limestone, be
came a monster grave-yard of marine
The country for miles has been wash
ed away, leaving here end there lolly
monuments of sandstone. Tbe expedi
tions not oulv round the remains of
huge quadrupedes here, but oyster shells
of great size scattered over the plains.
Homo of the shells were open, others
were closed, und all were of such size
that did they contain the millusk itself,
five or six ot them would yield a meal
for a whole party. Some of them
measured thirty inches across. At the
foot of some of the bluffs portions of
monsters were diseoved, the remainder
of their vertebral columns being buried
in Ihe limestone to unknown depths.
Here a paddle protruded, there a law
armed with tremendous teeth. The
reptiles found in Kansas now, number
ing over fifty species, vary in length
from 10 to 200 feet. On this aucient
ocean the ancestor of the sea serpent of
to-dav disported itself. Its shape was
such as to enable it to reuch upward
and exhibit a long tapering neck and
arrow-shaped head. A specimen of an
immense snake-like species (the Clidas-
tesl has recently been found in Canon
Citv. It bad evidently died while ly
ing on its back. The flippers or paddles
were found at some distance from the
body. The tape measure laid along the
vertebra indica.ed a length ot 1; teet
The tail alone measured 34 feet, and
evidently tapered down to -a delicate
point. The rows of terrible teeth were
devised, for holding prey, but as they
were of no use for cutting il up, it must
have been swullowed whole. The only
sound that the snake could utter was
hiss. That it had a lorked tongue is
proved bv the lack of room in the
mouth for a larger one. A turtle was
found with a shell twenty feet in width
aud thirty feet in length. Prof. Cope
has named this gigantic tortoise protos
lei?a triiras. the first generic term refer
ring probably to the peculiar condition
ol its seeminglv unucveiopeu this am
conii-ruous parts, which are like those
of ail oidinnrv turlllo just hatched
Here is the most gigantic of all turtle
in maturity, having the undevelopeti
structure ot' the immature state.
One or the largest reptiles ot this er
iod that has Ix-eu found is the 1 Union
The lower jaw wasdiscovered projecting
from a chalk clilt. and. on removing lue
earth, a long ppiecting' nmr.zlc was dis
cerned. This resembles the head of I lie
Muni no.ed sturgeon of the present wa
era The Pterodactyl umbrosus, the
veritable flying reptile or dragon of that
remote era. was also unearthed. I h
specimen- was found at the base, of
lil it if. It measured twentv-nine tee
from fincer to finirer. and when alive
must have been one of the most terribl
ol tho inhabitants of the ancient work
It derived ils nower of flight.' not bv
membiane stretched over four elongated
tinwrs. with a rudimentary thumb, like
the bats, nor by a wing without, distinct
fingers, as in birds, but by a wing sus
tained principally on a very elongated
toe, while Ihe other members possessed
their normal shortness, and were armed
with claws. Wilh this remakable con
formation were associated a long neck
and beak. It could fly in the air, remain
on the wing a long lime, and susicud it
self to trees and rocks by its short toes.
Another wonder discovered was Ihe Hen
ptroni, a large water bin! seven feet in
height, and having knife like teeth. The
teeth were set in groves, the wings wew
rudimentary aud useless, while the legs
were like those of a duck. A study of
ils skeleton shows it to have been close
ly related to the ostrich. Another won
der was a flying-bird, the ichthyoruis,
having still more reptilian characteris
tics. Its teeth, like the alligator's, wore
in distinct sockets, and, stranger yet, ils
vertebne is bi-concave a peculiarty only
found in the fishes and a few reptiles.
One of the most gigantic reptiles dis
covered was the Amphicrelias. The
thigh bone was so heavy that the find
ers were forced to harness a mnle to it to
drag it out of the hole. It measured over
eleven feet in length. A section of ihe
vertebrfe, from the dorsal portion, was a
heavy lift for four men, and when it
was placed npon the ground in the posi
tion assumed by the animal, it towered
above the tallest of the party, being over
six feet in height. To apppreciale this.
the reader must remember that the cor
responding bone of the nearest living
representative of this animal can be lift
ed by the little finger. Other fossil
aaurians. whose thigh bones are six feet
in length, have lieen given a length of
over 150 feet. If they increased in pro
portion to the size of this bone, we should
have a creature over 200 feet in length,
hut of course this is merely a supposi
lion, though quite a probable one This
saurian belonged to the genus Amirfu-
erelitit. A thigh-bone of au allied genus
over six reel long can lie seen in me mu
aeuni of natural hislorv. Central Park.
It is in a case in geological hall, and
side bv side wilh the same bone of the
nearest allied form. Near by are other
creatures representing tlie same age.
Some of the whales of this and later
times were one hundred and fifty feet
long, and the state of Alabama was once
their roaming-ground. In some locali
ties now the mormons sections of back
bones are so numerous that the farmers
are obliged to burn them and build
fences with them.
In another c use in the museum is ar
ranged a magnificent collection of fossil
sharks' teeth, some of them as large as
a man's hand. They belonged to a shark
over 100 feet long. They came from the
later beds of the Ashley ana cooper riv
ers. South Carolina, and were collected
by PPtf. HoliBc. the veteran geologist
of Cluuiestoa. In a tall vase are some
beautiful crinoids, presented to the mu
seum bv Rupert L. htuart. in the same
hall are enrions armored and warlike
fishes called Cbimacroids, which meas
ure thirty feet in length, and tbe bones
of an annual quits as large as the living
elephant, six of which are like those of
the rhinoceros. This is' known to aci
ence as the dinoceros. Tlie curious ore
don, too. is here; an extinct animal that
seemed l combine Ihe characteristics of
the hog, camel and deer.

hair is thickened, and baldness often
though not always cured. It cheeks falling

growth in all cases where the gtajula arc
not decayed; while to brashy, weak, oi
otherwise diseased hair, it imparts vilulity
and strength, and renders it pliable.
The Vigor cleanses the scalp, cures and
prevents the formation of dandruff; and,
by its cooling, stimulating, and soothing
properties, it heals most if not all of the
humors and diseases peculiar to the scalp,
keeping it cool, clean, aud soft, under
which conditions diseases of the scalp aud

As a Dressing for Ladies' Hair,
The Vigor Is incomparable. It is color

not soil white cambric. It Imparts au
agreeable and lasting perfume, and as an
article for the toilet it is economical and
unsurpassed in its excellence. .
