A GRAVEYARD TRUST.
Kansas Usdertakere Arrested for Gettlag
Up a Monopoly.
TOPaxA. Kan., Ot. 809.- Warrants have
been issued by the 'United States commie
sioner here for fifty-eight of the principal
undertakers of the state. and the arrests
are being made as rapidly as possible. It is
a renewal of the fightmade by J. M. Knight
against the Kansas Undertakers' associa
tion. This time Knight has the under
takers of Leavenworth and Atchison at his
back. These two olties have never snuffered
from the trust, and their undertakers are
doing what they can to break up the Kan
sas Undertakers' association. They are
charged with conspiring together to control
prices and regulate trade in violation of the
Inited States anti-trust law. The maxi
mum penalty is $5,000 fine or two years in
the penitentiary for each offense, or both.
In addition to the Topeka men for whom
warrants are issued, warrants are out for
all the undertakers of Wichita, Kansas
City, Kas., Newton, Arkansas City, Law
rence, Winfield. Poala, Saline. Garnett, El
dorado, Emporia, Junction City, I'arsons,
Lincoln, Fort Scott, Coffeyville, Sedan,
McPherson. Anthony, Columbus, Troy,
Seneca, Larned, Hutchinson, Abilene, Iola,
Kinsley, Solomon City, Concordia. Olathe
and Great Bend. The secretary of the as
sociation, B3. W. Carter, is not to be ar
rested, but has been eubpcenaed as a wit
ness, and Leon DeBoet has gone to Marion
and secured the books and papers in his
possession. These papers, it is said, are
sufficient to convict every member of the
organization, as they prove both the mem
bership and the workings of the organiza
tion. The undertakers are all in such good
circumstances financially that they have
no difficulty in giving bond. A lively fight
will be made. The undertakers expect to
carry their case to the United States su.
preme court if necessary.
TRIUMPHS OF THE BLIND.
How They Overcome the Disadvantages of
eling Usable to See.
The achievements of the blind are an un
failing source of wonder to those who can
see, and the latest prodigy among those un
fortunates is Oscar Moore, a six-year-old
colored boy of Waco, Texas, says the Chi
cago Times. His memory is not simply
phenomenal. it is what many people would
call marvelous. He has never been known
to forget a name after hearing it once or to
fail of recognizing a voice. It is a well
known fact that loss of sight sharpens the
other senses, especially hearing, but it has
not been supposed to greatly strengthen the
Oscar's memory was first noticed by his
parents when he was but thirteen months
old, and he soon became a wonderin Texas.
He was recently taken to Boston. When
introduced to a large company he remem
bered the name of everyone at their next
meeting and identified each by his voice.
He is a perfect little encyclopedia of his
torical and literary information; can count
in all the languages he has ever heard,
amounting to a dozen; can recite very long
poems after hearing them read once, and
detail every fact of any importance in any
history he has once heard read. He is
withal a fairly good singer and has some
talent for the piano. Many tests of his
memory have been made in Boston with
Another blind person of note is William
M. Davenport of Leyden, Franklyn county,
Ma-s.. who lost his sight in boyhood.
Nevertheless, he soon mastered the details of

and starting in early manhood with no for
