The headquarters of the secretary will be removed from Leavenworth to Topeka. Skcbktauy Moiileu, of the State Board of Agriculture, has received re ports from every county in the State showing that 27.S40, 401 bushels of win ter wheat and 800,813 bushels of spring wheat were harvested in Kansas this year. Saline is the banner county, with 2,148,250 bushels of winter wheat Over 2,000,000 acres of winter wheat were sown in the State this falL Both constitutional amendments were defeated at the late eloction. The amendment increasing the number of Supreme Court judges was defeated by about 80,000, and that extending the sessions of the Legislature by a still larger vote. Miss Lillte Ixslev. daughter of Captain H. M. Inaley, of Leavenworth, was recently poisoned by eating candy containing a noxious drug. After eat ing the candy she became violently ill, but prompt medical attendance saved her l.fe. K B. Dexcxk. a farmer and an old settler of Sheridan County, committed suicide by cutting his throat with a razor the other day. ' Ho arose from the dinner table a few minutes previous to the other members of tbo family and went to the stable, where he was found dead, lie was 00 years old and leaves a wife, two sons and three daughters. Financial embarrassment supposed to be the cause. Mits. Joii.v Swaxskn, of Topoka, who for some time had been a confirmed hypochondriac concluded that she soon must die, and in order that she might not go without her five-year-old daugh ter the mother the other day adminis tered chloroform to her child with fatal effect, the little one dying while the husband and father was absent at bis work in the Santa Fe shops. The un fortunate mother, who is regsrded as Insane, will t-e snt to an syluia. Soon after darlc the other night Charles R. Russell was run over at the Santa Fe crossing at Emporia by a switch engine and his head cut clean off from his body. Both his legs were also cut off. Bo was single and about 35 years old. A fkeiciit train, on the Northwest ern road, broke through a bridge across "the Kaw river at Kansas City, Kan., early the other morning. The train, which consisted of an engine, car lead of hogs, a car of corn, one of milling machinery and a caboose, went to the bottom of the rlvor. carrying the engi neer, fireman, conductor, a stockman and a number of other persons. A col ored man, who had jumped on to ride over the river to his work, and Fireman Allen were killed and a number of others bad narrow escapes. The losi to the railroad company was estimated at $100,000. Tmt official vote in the several Con gressional districts bad not been an nounced on the 19th except the Second and Fourth districts.

Twenty-live Ways la Which They Kay Be Utilised to Advantage. Along with a last years' birds' nest do men rate a back-number newspaper, yet civilization finds more (and more reputable) uses for the latter than a Chinese cook for the former. Almost everyone has heard that newspaper spread between the bed blankets affords more protection from cold than an addi tional blanket, and without adding the uncomfortable weight of the latter. But I have seen a bit of domestic econ omy practiced by a tramp, so clever as to make this one pale. He wrapped his feet in newspapers, of which he had plenty, in lieu of stockings, of which he had none. "Will that keep your feet warm?" I asked. "Better than all-wool hose," he answered and truthfully. As a chest-protector, a folded paper under the vest will ward off pneumonia. But the old newspaper is just as good a protection against heat Set an ice pitcher on one and draw up and tie se curely over the top. In the morning, one will find the ice unmeltcd. A pis catorial friond always brings his. trout home wrapped in plenty of paper, and they look fresher than cold storage can keep them. Many a housewife knows how to make comfortable couch pillows and porch cushions by cutting papers in long, nar row strips and rolling them, the fashion of making lamplighters. Trimmings from a bookbindery are easier to use. When celery is large enough to bleach, instead of banking it up with earth, wrap each bunch in half a dozen thick nesses of old paper, well tied on, from root to crown. It is equally good, a gardener tolls me, for mulching straw berries, spread between the rows and weightod with stones. A few cents' worth of back numbers from a newspaper office aro equal to dol lars' worth of the best moth-proof (?) ever sold, though a little more trouble some to lay smoothly. As a lamplighter it saves matches, and for wadding iron holdors is a better non-conductor thun cotton. It makes the shelves in the cellar and wash-house look neat and wrapped around the glass fruit-jars ex cludes the light which is as hurtful as the air to some fruits. Patterns cut In nowBpapor are no new thing, but it may not be generally known that a cheap and durable door-mat equal to cocoa, can be made by having files of old papers cut lengthwise into sections three inches wide, and packing these together on edire in a frame of wood. Where soft or hard coal is burned in an open grate, a dampened newspaper pinned over the front makes a serviceable blower; but never use a dry paper. We have said nothing about the time honored scrap-book; but for amusement for the children on a rainy afternoon, nothing costs less or is more relisbod than cutting the advertising cuts and display letters from old newspapers. Then such geometrical and other figures as are cut in the kindergartens may he made from tbem. For cleaning lamp chimneys there is nothing half so good, or for packing dishes or glassware. The mice know the value of finely cut paper so well for bedding that it would be strange if some clever Yankee bad not invented a ma chine for shredding it for use in stables, as is done in some cities. The hospitals and prisons are always glad to get uncut second-hand papers, especially religious and story papers. Such as have to be cut or torn aro worth half a cont a pound for waste paper, and If thcro are any so soiled or unfit to keop that, they must be burned, pack them into a paper tube, with turpentine and resin, and saw in sections for kindling.

Be Doesnt Take Moo It Medlelno and Art vises the Iteporter Mot To. "Humbugt Of course it is. The so-called science of medicine Is a humbug and has been from tho time of Hippocrates to the present Why the biggest crank in the In dian tribes is the medicine man." Very frank was the admission, especially so when it cam from one of the biggest young physicians of the city, one whose practice is among the thousands, though he has leen graduated but a few years," says the Buffalo Courlor. "Very cozy was his office too, with Its cheerful grate Are, its Queen Anno furniture, and its many lounges and easy-chairs. He stirred the fire lazily, lighted a fresh cigar, and wont on." "Take the prescriptions laid down In the books and what do you find! Poisons mainly, and nauseating stuffs that would mako a healthy man an Invalid. Why In the world ftcionce ahould go to poisons for its remedies I cunnot tell, nor can I find any one who can." "How does a doctor know the effect of his medicine C ho askod. "He calls, prescribes, and goes away. The only way to judge would bo to stund over the bed and watch the patient This cunnot be dono. So, really, I don't know how be in to tell what good or hurt ho does. Homotime ago, you remember, the Boston Glole sent out a re porter with a stuted set of symptoms. He went to eleven prominent physicians and brought back elevendifforent prescriptions. This just shows how much science there is In medicine." There are local diseases of various char acters for which nature provides positive remedies. They may not bo included in the regular physician's list, perhaps, because of their simplicity, but the eviJence-of their curative power is beyond dispute. Kidney diseaso is cured by Warner's Safe Cure, a strictly herbal remedy. Thousands of per sons, every year, write as docs H T. Gardi ner, of Pantiac, R. 1., August 7, 1490: "A few years ago I suffered more than probably ever will le known outside of my self, with kidney and liver complaint It is the old story I visited doctor after doctor, but to no avail. I was at Newport, and Dr. Blackman recommended Warner's Sufe Cure. 1 commenced the use of it, and found reliof immediately. Altogether I took three bottles, and I truthfully state that it cured mo." A Good Thing for Tommy. "Well. Tommy, I'm gl d to see you aro getting along so much better at school," said that young man's uncle. "You have gone a whole week without being whipped, haven't you?"

Talking of patent medicines you know the old prejudice. And the doctors some of them are between you and us. They would like you to think that what's cured thousands won't cure you. You'd be lieve in patent medicines if they didn't profess to cure everything and so, between the experiments of doctors, and the experiments of patent medicines that are sold only because there's money in the "stuff," you lose faith in avty tliing. And, you can't always tell the prescription that cures by what you read in the papers. So, perhaps, there's no better wayio sell a remedy, than to tpll the truth about it. and Uake the risk of its doing just i . t r x J wnai it proiesses 10 uo.
