The creek was very high and running swiftly, and the banks very steep, and the other men decided not to go in, but Thompson undressed and proceeded to take a bath. He could swim but little and while bathing held to a large grape Yin which ran out over the water. '. After finishing his bath he announcec that he was going to try to swim across the creek, but was warned by 'cm of his companions that the wa ter was too, swift for this unless he 'was a good swimmer, but he said he wes going to make the attempt. When he had almost reached the otter Bide he became frightened and called for help atad the men on the hawk) jshouted to him to not get excited and o swim back, which he started to do bait when, he again reached the cen ter the currant was too swift for him ""to overcome and he. sank to the bot tom, coming to the top but once un til he disappeared entirely and tefore . the m-en on the bank ccu'jd come to his assistance. v ' Help was Immediately summcmied & from the Wood farm close by, but the bcdircouldnotfce found1 and word was 'sent, to town and a large nmm- her Immediately went out to assist .

Mr. Thompson was bora in, Edge wood,.ni9., March 2, 1883, being 31 GAVE STIFF FINE. It is mighty easy for & man who dispenses booze in Kansas to get into a heap of trouble, but it is apt often the case that a fellow gets into the toils because he falls to sell the stuff but that is what happened to Harry Nereis, a young colored fellow cf this city the first of the week. Neve If has been suspected of dispensing the forbidden, beverage for some time, and Saturday night a bunch of young fellows, being seized with a thirst that water refused to quench, made up a purse of 7 which they turned over to. Nevels on his promise to se cure them some beer. Nereis re turned to the bunch shortly after ward and informed them that after he had secured the desired bey-erase and was hastening through 'the alley to make delirery he had been cap tured by the cops who had confiscat ed his load. It was bad enough for the crowd with the dry throats to be deprired of the cooling beverage which they had been counting on to prolong their lives, but when Nereis refused to give back the $7 it was more than good nature could stand and a complaint was made to the of ficers and his arrest followed. He was up before Justice Clayton Mon day morning, and while he had failed to make delivery of the goods in this case, he was convicted of boot-'egiini ffnd was given a fine of $200 and a Jail sentence of 3lx months. Nevels' story of the booze being taken from him was a myth, but he probably needed the $7 and thought that, waB as good a "stall" to make as anything else, but the patrons of the Milwau kee product were not in a 'burner to be worked In this manner. The case will be appealed to the district court. Willis Eolinger left for the ranch near Minneola, the first of the week to look after the 'harvesting of their big wheat crop.

The wrestling match In the Moses Hall Wednesday evening between Dave Davidson, of St. John, and Ch& belevuk, of Wichita, was one of the best exhibitions of the mat game which has erer been witnessed fa j this part of the state, and gave the crowd the full worth of their money, the bout being won by Davidson tsk-j ing the second and third fails after Delevukiad won the first. George Davidson, a brother of Dave and George DuBois, of this city, put on a good preliminary, going 23 mi nutes without a fall and the match was then called to allow the big f' lows to come on. Dubois is a fast and strong man, and although he waj out-weighed several pounds by the St. John man, yet he was able to go the route withou distress. The first fall was won by the Wichita man after 25 minutes with a hammer kxk hold. The second was fast and interesting bout from start to finish, both men going at top speed all the time, and was won by the St. John man in 23 minutes, the hamnverlook also doing the business ia this faJJ. The third fail ' was a battle royal, both men going on de termined to win in fast time, but the St. John grappler porved to b? Just a Httle too much for the Wi;h ita man, and again using the ham uerlock, together with a crotch hold, pinned him to the floor for the count after 22 minutes work. Both of toe men were inclined to lose their tern- pens la the third fall and thero w:s plenty of the "rough stuff indulged in, but it was evenly divided atd each of the big fellows gave tack as god as was. font. Both are among the very best.Jf nat the best men in the state, and while each weighed in the neighberhced cf 193 poucds, yet they were as quick on their feet as is possible for any men- to be.' Da vidson appeared to be carrying too muh flesh to be at his be", and un douWedrywouM have Bad an easier time with the Wichita- man. had 'he been trained down a ldttle finer, but at that he was good enough to win and when a man can pin De'.evuk's aboujdere to the mat he has got to be a mighty good man, and tils Dav idson proved to be. Deievuk has been at the game a good many years longer than the, St. John man and seemed to. take things a Mttle easier while at work, but Davidson won manj friends among the fans here by his work, and when he appears m an other big match in this city, which will be pulled off after harvest, there ia going to be a big turn-out. Judging from the number of dlfferin' challenges of different weigh's which were thrown out at' the crowd at the match by wrestlers from .different parts, there must be an abundance of men at the game in this part ' the, country, and the sport should re ceive a good boost this fall.
