Improved Knty Train Service
Tho first' passengor train over tho
Joplln extension of tho Katy arrived
in Joplln Monday evening. Tho ex

In good sbapo and tho now road-bed

condition. The (extension was built
with a 'view to completing the work
begun when a line was secured to Iola
and gives tho Katy direct lines from

It is understood that as soon as tho

Hub Clothing Company Dissolves)
Tho Hub Clothing Company has
dissolved partnership, the business
will bo closed up hero and tho remains
of tho stock probably moved to Riley,
Kansas. Tho company was composed
ofT. W. Kitchen and O. W. Shep
hord, tho latter of Manhattan, Kan
sas. Thoy rented tho Northrup build
ing west of the Bank of Allen county
and Installed a llrst-class stock of
gentlemen's furnishing goods and
clothing somo two years ago. Mr.
Kitchen is a traveling clothing sales
man and looked aftet the store but his
duties on the road took him away
much of tho tlmo and while tho store
did a good business tho book ac
counts were growing too largo. Somo
tlmo ago a closing out sale was in
augurated and tbo stock thus reduced
and tbo firm has now dissolved. Mr
Shopherd is horo to look after tho
winding up of itho business and will
probably ship tho remains of the
stock to Riley.

he has already found 8,255 people and
still more to he seen and reported.
Even at that figure the town shows a

Brutal Combat Given in Arena at

The most bloody and brutal en
counter between beasts ever seen in
this tcction of the country took place
in the bull ring at Juarez, Mexico, the
other day between a young Numldlnn
Hon and a Salnmanca bull. Three
thousand persons, principally, Ameri
cans, witnessed the battle from the
grand stand which surrounds the huge
cngo set up in the arena.
The fight lasted nearly an hour and
was finally stopped by the Mexican au
thorities, who admitted that their own
national sport of bull-fighting had
been outclassed in point of brutality.
The bull was a splendid specimen,
and was courageous in the extreme
From tho beginning he recognized in
the lion a deadly enemy, and nttnck'ed
tho king of beasts readily and with
great spirit.
The Hon, which had been reared as a
pet, refused to fight at the outset, and
attempted to break through the bars
to seek refuge beside his keeper, who
stood without and pitilessly goaded
the beast with an iron bar, and poured
vitriol upon the lion's body. Finally,
realizing that escape was hopeless, the
lion crouched for a sprlngand launched
himself into the air, landing upon the
bull's hack, and fastening his teeth in
the bovlnc's neck. Ills hold was in
secure and he was easily shaken off,
hut the bull bled from a number of
The maddened bull attacked fiercely
after that, driving the Hon into his
corner, and goring him repeatedly.
The lion retaliated by seizing the
bull's nose. He lost his held and the
bull gored him repeatedly, breaking
his leg and causing him to roar with
At this juncture, while the excite
ment was at its height, the bugler em

American Womnn nobbed by a Cham
bermaid and the Stolon Cooda
Given tn the Thief.
Miss Elsie Daniels, the daughter of
an American merchant at Paris, has
just had an illnstration of French red
tape in all its beauty.
Her chambermaid stole from her
some time ago a sum of money and
jewels. The plunder she still had con
cealed about her person when she was
arrested. On being put in jail the
servant had to deposit with the regis
trar of the prison the valuables she
had with her, and of course she had
to hand oter the stolen piopcrty with
whatever else she had.
The maid was sentenced to prison
for six month", her term expiring the
other day. As soon ns he was re
leased both the sort nnt nnd her former
mistress appealed before the regis
trar to claim their property. The of
ficial, though he well knew the facts,'
argued thnt he imut return the al
uables to tho person holding the re
ceipt for them, and thereupon gn) e the
stolen money and jewels to the thief,
who promptly disappeared. Miss Dan
iels will now sue the state.

a Jiiiiiiiiee Vocl,
By the stenmshlp China comes the
story of a real Japanese llobinson
Crusoe, who lived for 17 years on n de
serted island near Gcnsnn, ofCCorea.
The man was seen by the Japanese
master of a fishing schooner, who
thought him a monster from his wild
appearance nnd did not dare land. Ha
reported to the Japanese government,
which tent a torpedo boat in search of
the man on the island. He was found
nnd brought back to NngaskiS
The man had been so long without
companionship that he w as reduced al
most to imbecility. His hair nnd beard
wero long nnd unkempt, nnd he had
almost lost the power of speech. He
had been cast away on the island 17
years ngo nnd hnd subsisted since thnt
time on senweed and fish, living in a
cae. He was entirely without imple
ments of Iron or any means of utilizing
the scanty materials of nature which
the island furnished.

McCormick missed a beAutlful
emerald ring. Her maid did not re

Prof. Frederick Starr So Declares
Regarding the Wedding Ring.
Say It Ilepresent the Nonc-lUnar,
Ankle, or Manncle by 'Which the
Sliuc Will Led Away from the
Mart by Ills New Mniter.
The romantic ideals of 75 "co-eds"
in a class of anthropology at the Uni
versity of Chicago recehed a rude
shock at the hands of Prof. Frederick
Starr the other afternoon. Tho cyni
cal professor bluntly declared that the
wedding ring was a relic of barbarism,
an absolutely useless survival of tho
culture of primitive people, and every
young woman in the claba raised her
voice in dissent.
"Undoubtedly," replied the pro
fessor, "the wedding ring is a beauti
ful example of barbaric tradition, liv
ing in this modern twentieth century,
nnd filling no function whatsoever.
Perhaps one of you enn tell me the
origin of the use of the wedding ring?"
He received no answer from the 75
young women.
"The wedding ring represents the
nose ring, ankle or manacle by which
In past ages the sold slac was led
away from the mart by his new mas
ter," he continued, while his audience
shivered with feminine disgust. "Hut
everyone to-day knows that a woman,
when she is given a ring to symbol
ize the wedding sacrament, is by no
means a slave," he added.
The dress coat was also Included in
Trof. Starr's crusade against "relics
of barbarism." Turning to tho men
of his class, he added: "What is the
origin of that absurd garment, tho
dress coat? Nothing less than the
hunting coats of our ancestors, who
divided the tnils of the long frock
coats, cut away the front, sewed but
tons in the hack to hold up the tails,
nnd UFed the coat for a hunting jacket.
The funniest thing about this dress
coat folly is the fact that whenever
a gentleman goes to nn evening party
in his dress clothes, as soon as lie gets
inside the door he meets a man dressed
just like him, who opens the door for
him and helps him off with his over
coat. Now, why Is the servant dressed
in the conventional evening costume
also? Just because he formerly had
to wear out the old hunting coats of
his master. So, you see, the dress
cont In nil Its uses is merely a survival
of barbarism."

Yearly and Returning f 3,000,000.
Germany's efforts to extend acd
open np colonies are not very" success
ful from a financial point of view, says
a Tondon dispatch to tbe New York
Tribune. The total annual revenue of
the eight protectorates which are un
der the mle of the kalter Is only !,
000,000 and the reichstag has to vote
$7,500,000 to support them. Kino
Chan's revenue is $90,000, nnd a sub
sidy of $3,000,000 Is required to mnle
both ends meet. Again the ret enuc of
the protectorate of Southwest Africa
amounts to $150,000, while the total
sum required for its gni eminent is
$2,000,000. Hut eon thc-e jcnrlj sub
sidles do not nlwnjs represent the
full amounts thnt hae to he protided
out of the imperial fund. The esti
mates for the present jear Include the
sum of $SOO,000 to coer deficits that
occurred in 1S9S nnd 1890 in the
budgets of the protectorates of East
Africa, the Cameroons and Southwest
Little Girl, nunsuter of Chimney-
merit, Cninri from Kntclnnd to
Hako Her Home In America.
A lone pnssenger on the Ameri
can liner St. Louis, which arlrved
from Southampton tho other night,
was set en-year-old May Tippin. Tho
little girl, who was in charge of one
of tho liner's stewardesses, was
greatly petted by the passengers,
who did everything that they could
to make her voyage ns pleasant as
possible. J. he child is on her way to
Portland, Ore., where 8he will live

Mrs. Wendt. knowing that the Tip
pins had hard work to make ends

give the child n home and to see that
she was educated and well cared for.
Miss May will bo put on a trnin for
Portland. The child was nicknamed
"Little Hod Hiding Hood" by the
passengers, because of a red cape and
hood that she wore.
Denies Peers Are Gentlemen.
The Ancestor, a new genealogical
quarterly of London, contains an arti
cle by Sir George Sltwell on "Tho Eng
lish Gentleman,"ln which he maintains
that a gentleman lsnotapersonof her
aldic status, who is entitled to bear
arms, but n freeman whose ancestors

somewhat startling statement that
quite 20 per cent, of British peers are
not gentlemen.
