The telephone wire connecting the water works and the eugine house be came so contracted Thursday with the extreme cold that it broke at the south end or Constitution street, but was re paired Friday afternoon. The crime for which H. A. Boran was arrested in this city last week by the sheriff of Williamson county, Illi nois, mention of which has been made in Tuk News, was committed twenty years ago. I bis is raking up old scores with a vengeance. It seems almost providential that no planetary performances out of the ordi nary line are announced to take place during the present cold snap. It would require a vast measure ot scientific ar dor to keep perfectly comfortable on a front gate or a verandah these crisp evenings. It is to be regretted that Vennor hasn't sent Kansas more heroic doses of snow than he has favored us with. The se vere weather is very hard on the wheat in its present unprotected condition, and it is feared that no small proportion of it In already winter-killed.

Tho 'norther" which swept down Commercial street Thursday made the hitching posts so glad that they bad been taken in o n of the cold, that they have some notion of returning a vote of thanks to the city council. The breeze, to use the figure of a gifted contempo rary, was quite equal to the contract of shaving the hair off a polar bear. Mr. W. C. Fithian, the "old reliable" ice man of this city, has Just finished filling the fourth room of In mammoih house with the finest ice ever put up in Kansas. The last room was filled with ice 18 inches thick. Mr. Fithian has furnished the citizens of this place with ice for the last ten years, and has always supplied the wants of his customers. When it failed to freeze here he shipped it in from Colorado or the lakes to sup ply the demand. We congratulate him on his kurccaa this winter and hope he may reap a rich reward. The Young Men's Debating Club, at their meeting last week, discussed the follow i tin momentous question: "R solved, That the signs ol the times in dicate I ho downfall of the American Re public." The advocates of self-govern ment will be greatly depressed to learn that arguments in support of the affirmative were character ized by a measure of ability that rendered them well-nigh un answerable, aud John W. For ney, who declares that "the empire is up on us," will be deeply interested to learn that his gloomy apprehensions are shar ed by not a few of the most brilliant young statesmen of Lyon county. McIn'ttrb A Heath, with their southern minstrels, occupied the boards at Jay's hall Thursday, and from all we can learn gave a performance well worth witnessing. The extremely severe weather did not, happily, interfere with the atlendance, which was very much better than the managers had been led to hope for in the afternoon. The musical part of the program was ex. tremely creditable, trie comic por tions irresistible, while Sena tor Edward Wilson, as America's burlesque stump speaker, was simply immense. The troupo made a reputa tion which will stand them instead when they visit our town in the future. Wanted la Illinois. Sheriff Duncan, of Williams county, Illinois, arrived in this city last week, having in his possession papers author izing him to arrest one li. A. Boran, who has beeu living at the Emporia house in this city for some time past under the alias of Jackson Bolander. Boran some months since made his escape from the William's county jail, where he was awaiting trial, having been charged with grand larceny. His late where abouts was discovered by the authorities in Illinois, through a correspondence be tween parties here and persons in the east regarding the murder of M. A. Henry, some allusion having been made to Boran in the letters. lie is said to be a tough customer, and Sheriff Duncan got out of town with his prison er by meant of a private conveyance just in time to evade a writ of habeas corpus which had been prepared by attorneys here at Boran's solicitation.

In the legend of the German poet, a philosopher makes a compact with the spirit of evil, to deliver himself over body sad soul, if the spirit can at any time give him so much of happiness, that he shall say to the passing moment, Oh still delay, thou art so fair." lie is placed in scenes of revelry, pleas ure, power, and glory, but the supreme moment comes not, until at last, after spending years in reclaiming a waste country, and mtkin? it I Ho home of thousands of contented and prosperous people, in the joy at seeing so much of happiness as the result of bis labors, be makes the fulal exclamation, "VtrteeiU dock, da bitt so $eho$n.n Not unlike this fullness of joy may be the feeling of the founders of our noble order-aa they contemplate the comfort and haDDiness which has come to so many sorrowing ones throughout the laud through their iustrmentality. The good they have accomplished is vast, al most immeasurable, yet it is but a tithe, an emblem merely, of that which shall yet be performed as the year roll by It is a singular fact, but none the less true, that so successful an order was not born in Ohio. It is not even an Ohio idea, nor were its originators, presidents. The order of Knights of Honor was founded by its founders in a foundry I suppose, in Louisville, Kentucky, June, 1873. Rememberini the maxim of "Poor Richard." "Take care of the wid ows, for the wives can take care ot tnem selves," and desiring to remedy some oj the defects of other orders ami at ine same lime give a siaieu renei to the families of deceased mem bers, they established this as a secret be nevolent order. At first but little pro gress was made, and that in but few Mies, and it seemed almost ae n mis or der would be found dead in the very sight of its founders. But it was no part of their plan that this scheme should die early, but dilate into a grand and benefi cent institution, which should be a bless- Under their renewed exertions in "75-fl, it made rap id progress and now numbers 3'J grand lodges, 2,3:JO subordinate lodges and about 110,000 members. It extends from the pine-clad bills of Maine to the broad plains through which the Rio Grande murmurs to the sea; from the everglades of Florida to where "rolls the Oregon, -and bears no sound save iu own dashings." It can be found in all prominent nlaces in the land that are habitable, and in some that are uninhabitable, for a lodire haa recently been established far np among the clouds, even in the city of Leadville. too rar up irom tue eartn to be convenient and not near enough to hiiM tn he hand v.

It charters all new lodges and furnishes benefit certificates to eacn new member. The errand lodees are composed of rep resentatives from the subordinate and have charge of the interests of the order and of the lodges in their respective states. You are all aware of the steps neces sary in admitting new members It is the intention to admit none who are not acceptable to the members of the lodge in order that peace and harmony may be Dreserved. to admit none but sound, auie bodied men, such as would be acceptable bv anv life insurance company ana every means are now taken to secure this result, rivcry omcer wnra is lnirusicu with money or property is reqnired to irtve bonds for double the amount liable to come into his hands, and thus every temptation and opportunity for dishon esty is removed.

When less than $2,000 is iu the supreme treasury this fund is called in from all the lodges, and they are nolifield to make a new assessment ou their members. The supreme treas urer pays out this fund for death benefits until is exhausted, when he calls for the benefit funds treui the lodges, and they in turn make a uew assessment. A sin gle assessment now pays for 65 deaths. On an average from 13 to 15 assessments are made per rear. In 1877, there were 11: 1878. 14; 1879, the year of yellow fever, 19; 1880, 13. It has cost a mem ber uudcr 45, since the organization $76, or about $11 per year. Add to this $10, for initiation fee aud $4 per year for lodge expenses, and relief of sick and destitute members and it has cost less than $17 per yeur, for this which each member haa had an insurance of $2,000 on bis life, and the advantages of fraternal union, social enjoyments and assistance in case of sickness. Can any order show a better record ? Since its commencement the order has paid about 1,650 death benefits, making in the aggregate about 3,800,000. Of this amount $440,000, were paid oa 223 deaths by yellow fever, and in addition the order contributed $25,000 in aid of the sufferers. We may sately say that at least 10.000 persons have been directly benefitted and many more than that in directly. And will any one reckon up the amount of good this has done, the want and suffering which has been pre vented, and the comfort which has been given to sorrowing hearts in their hour of greatest need. Possibly some who have not been in straightened circnm stances, but the majority have, and it ia no small satisfaction- to know as we pay in our assessments that every cent goes to save some brother s family Irom dis tress and want, to clothe, nourish and educate his children, and not to help pay exhorbitant salaries, or to accumulate reserves in companies, who in turn rate discount and depreciate their policies. The objects of the order are briefly stated as follows: 1st Fraternal union; 2ud. Mutual improvement; 3rd. Ben efits for families of deceased members ; 4th. Aid to the sick and destitute. Of these objects the 3rd, that of death benefits, is provided for, regulated and managed by the supreme lodge, we have simply to pay our assessments. The others come within the scipe and prov ince of each subordinate lodge and its in dividual members. Aud are they not noble objects t What nobler and better could we have? Brotherly love, improvement, charity? We are to be united as brothers in sympathy, kindness aud love. Everything thatcan conduce to peace, harmony and good will, is to be carefully sought and zeal ously guarded, and whatsoever tends to discord, Uissenlion and jealousy, is to be banished away. With this state of feel ing existing, mutual improvement will follow naturally. This object is stated thus, by moral, literary and scientific lectures to give moral and intellectual aid, and also assistance in business, in other words, to make our brothers bet ter, wiser, more useful and happier. In too many lodges this, the most import ant object of our order, has heeu over looked and neglected for other inter ests, liut it is one oa which, the pros- self-sacrifice are given in every hamlet and village. Such, in brief, is the history of our order, iu benefits confirmed and Us ob jects to be pursued. Do we not well to call it a noofe order r is it not ouc for which we may indulge in honest pride? We glwrv in what has been accomulish- 1 and wc hope lor yet greater deeds in the future. The work for the whole order must not ce'ite but go on with ever increasing power, and the demands of our individual efforts in our own lodges will never lessen till we have i passed from labor to rest. We may not j sit down and say the seed has been sown. Ine harvest is asonred and we will enjov the fruit.. Woik for others, to make their lives better aud happier never ceases. That life is best v. hich has done the moat for mankind, that life is useless. wasted, lost, which has done nothing for outers. 1 be names of heroes, sagee, aud saints, of antiquity have come down t us, by the fame of their dccSt. Men will forget what we suffer, but not what we ao. w ltnio tue objects or our order there if enough to eugage the activity and the best exertions of every member.

K. ol H. Installation. The public installation of the officers ot Walkup, and Cenlrul lodges K. of II took place pursuuut to announcement. at Jay's hall last week. Mr. J. R.

After the iustallatiou, sapper was pro vided for those who desired to partake of the tempting viands which were taste fully set forth, and a feature of the evening which added muih to iu interest wai the sale of the sack of Hour which proved the source of such a handsome revenue at the legisla tive reception at Topeka, and last even, ing brought between $50 and $60. The address of Dr. Morse, of Lawrcuce, state medical examiner of the organization, was an admirable effort, and if space permits we shall be pleaded to publish it in a future issue. The evening was highly satisfactory in all of its features, and the dance. which concluded the exercises was prolonged until a late hour by the votaries of that enjoyablo pastime. Appealing for Aid Mr. C. W. Bell, of Ness county, who is soliciting aid for the destitute people of his township, arrived in Emporia last week with teams and wagons to ob tain such help as the people of Lyon county may see fit to extend him in be half of his destitute neighbors at home. He will gladly receipt any thing in the way ot grain, meat, potatoes and other provisions, and in order that the public may satisfy themselves as to the honesty of the enterprise in which he is interesting himself requests us to pub lish the following statement: To whom it may concern: As I am visiting vour county (by pe tition from the people m my township, viz: town 16, range 26, Ness county, Kansas) for the purpose of soliciting aid for the people ot said township, 1 wish to state my petition is endorsed by the following officials : G.

He says he was closed out through means of bills that had not yet fallen due ; that he owes uo one in Emporia and is not going to "skip" the town or be crushed by a misfortune. Tbe principle that kicks at a man because he is down, bhowa a luck of that charity which many a business man neeus in tne course ot a continued career, and tue fuels, without any distortion, are generally heavy enough for the unfortunate one to bear. The Kansas Hallway. We clip the followiug from the Kan sas City Journal of thv 121 iust : A few days ago we noticed the forma tion ol a new railway organization, un der the name of the Kausas railway company.-coniposed of the citizens of Kansas aud Kansas City, tor the pur pose of building a road Irom tluscity by way ot uttawa or liainwin c"ity to i-m- poria, wjtn an extension by way ot Osage Citv aad Council Grove, in the direction of Saliua or McPberson. We were not, however, aware of the progress already made until yesterday, when on meeting some ot ihe gentlemen connected wiUi it, we found that a con tract had already been made with re sponsible parties to build the road and equip it, upon certain conditions. These conditions are the voting of 7 per cent. municipal bond; to the amount of 3,- 000 per mile from Quenemo, in Osiige county, to Emporia, the work to begin within forty days niter the voting ot the bonds, and the road to be completed be tween Emporia and Ottawa or Baldwin City within lifteen months. This, it will be seen, is a very cheap road to the people, being one thousand dollars u mile less than the usual aid asked from the counties and townships. The agreement also covers the divis ion of the road from Quenemo, through Lyndon, Osage City and Council Grove to tue eastern boundary ot saline or aic Pherson counties. This part of the line to have a subscription of $4,000 a mile in bonds. This part of the road to be completed in eighteen months to Council Grove and the entire line in. two years. The contractors are Jos. Collett and his associates, men of ample means, ex perience, and well known throughout railway circles as among the most suc cessful railroad builders in the west, The people along the line know the men. and the assurance we give that they are ready to take the contract on these terms will add all the confidence the directors need ask with the people. We expect to see the work under way, just as sfwm as the necessary legal steps can be tascen, as tuere is no better coun try for local business in the state of Kan sas and it badly needs the road. The people along the line 'we are assui-. d are thoroughly awake, and thev fully understand this to be not only Hie first but the only practicable and cert a., chance for a road. The proposition a- we have given it from such solid . m r removes the last tmubt at to the practi cability of the plan. Greenwood County Republican : The question of refunding our railroad bonds was presented to the county commis sioners on last Saturday by Mr. Severy, who represented tne railroad interest- He desired the board to refund our pres ent bond?, in bonds bearing 0 percent. interest, instead of 8. as now, and to run 30 years The board refused to do any thing with it at present, but have the con tract, as set forth in the sherifTs procla ination, under which said bonds were voted, published that the people might have a chance to see iust whut thev had done and whut the contract was.

Cross on Union street, was thrown open Thursday eveningto a large party of friends all of whom seemed to leel a special pride in the privilege of sharing in the happy dedication of such a delightful home to the purposes of social entertain ment The glow of cheer ful hospitality which brightened the commodious hall, presented a most grate- ful contrast to the frigidity of the outer world, and the air of comfort and elegance which pervaded it, afford ed an iudex to tbe character of the other handsome and luxurious apartments. Not less agreeable and assuring was the sincere cordiality with which the guests were received as they descended front the toik-t rooms and entered the parlors, which proved adequate to the comfort able accommodation of all who respond ed to tbe kind invitations of the host and hostess. After a general and pleasant in terchange of the compliments of the evt ning, the excellent orchestra, made up of a Dumber of our best local musicians, filled the rooms with strains that pos sessed a peculiar charm for all lovers of dancing, and a succession of quadrilles interrupted only by an admirable recita tion and some renditions in vo cal music which were received with unanimous favor, held the .floor till tbe announcement of supper, which was seryed in a commodious upper room, and embraced the best efforts of the culinary art. After a protracted session at the beautiful and well-filled tables, the guests, each bearing away some exquisite little souv enir, in the shapj of a decorated horse shoe or fan, in wood, and a tiny boquet ot flowers, repaired to the parlors below, where preparations were immediately inaugurated for dancing tbe germ an, a series of graceful evolutions to the description ot which our pencil is entirely inadequate, but which, under the skillful direction of Mrs. Cross, proved a grand success, and will doubtless date the beginning of a new era in the social diversions of Emporia. It was not until a very lute hour that the party broke up, and tii- quests departed to their several homes cherishing recol lections of a most delightful evening.
