Tho Commonwealth makes a sour face over our pleasantry in which we advised Topeka to give more atten tion to her commercial and less to her diamond field. The joke is too pal pable for anybody to get hufly over Topeka ha6 sixty traveliug men In the field, so the Commonwealth says, and we dou't doubt it. We stated that Wichita had over forty, which was only a rough guess, the truth being that she has about double that num ber. - The Harper Graphic quotes from the New Republic a3 a representative ot at leapt some portion of the senti ment ot Wichita touching railroads. The truth is that a very limited num ber of people in this city know of the exiMcucc of any such paper; and it represents nothing and nobody if we except the crank, that edits it. There possibly might be found a few busi ness men in Wichita whom tho Eaole on this railroad question fails in its sentiments and course to represent which we very much doubt but it is certain that the New Republic don't even represent to much as a peanut stand. The graphic in quoting said cheap patent in such a connection sim ply misleads its readers. JUDGE PETERS' LETTER OF AC CEPTANCE. Sir. ITeddrnt and Gentlemrn of the ConTn- tion: I, with pleasure, eccept the reuom- inatiou tendered me, and shall regard it as an act of approval on your part of my past efforts, and it shall also be an incentive to mo to faithfully dis clmrge, in the future, the trust com inittcd to my care. The rapid growth of this congres sional district, since the census of 1880, is phenomenal. When it wf ccatcd by law, it was the smallest in population in the state, having only about 147,000 people; it now is. beyond question, the largest in population of any coiigrcs-ioual district in the United States, the state census of March 1, 1885, gave to it a population of 204,513 souls, and it is not mi exag geration to say, that since the taking of that census, 100,000 people have become either actual residents of the district, or have taken the preliminary steps lookinjr to a residence in the district. This rapid and wonderful increase lias very cousidembly en lanicd the demauds upon me as its representative, and has rendered my task no eay one. Since the first day of November, 188o, I have had estnb- lishcd 'sixty-eight new postolliees within the limits of the district. The lollowing letter from the first assistant postmaster general will be interesting: Ilon.S. Jt. IVters, Hout of Kej-resentatlvM Sir: I have tho honor to itatn that, sinco November 1, 1885, thero bare been estab lished sixty-five postnffic, and three re-established, by counties in tho Seventh dis trict. Kansas as follow: Greeley 3, Stafford 3,Wiclnta 3, Kingman 1, bcott 1, Harvey 1, JNess J, and to-cttab lished. Scd"wick 1, Hush 1, Morton 1, Ham ilton 5. Stevens 1, Finney 8. Seward 2, Hodgeman 1, Meade 1 and 1 ro-c;tabliebcd, Ford 7, Clark C. Comanche 9, ISarber 1, Harper 3, Sumner 3. There is also pending action quite a large number ol applications, lavoranly recom mended by yourself, and which 1 shall at tempt to pus upon at an early date. Your district bas demanded largely increased Bottal facilities, and this office has been un able to keep up with the demand. Very respectfully. U. it. Dkemhaugh, for Tirst Assistant Postmaster General. Thirty new postal routes have either been established or will be in opera tion after the first of .Tulv next Twcntv-uiue postoflice.s in the district which on the first of July. 1885, were not of sullicicut importance to be mode moncv onler oluces. will lircome such on the first day of duly next. I call attention to these facts because they perhaps cvideucc the wonderful settle ment and growth better than au thiug else can do. Since the first of January, 1886, at my request the commissioner of agricultural has sent into ttic uis trict over 10,000 packages of seeds of various kinils, these bemg sent mainly to the newly settled counties. I hare have also sent 25 00 documents of various kinds, including books, speeches, etc., to persons living in the district. Mv correspondence has averaged not tess than thirtv letters per dav during the scssiou, beginning tho first Monday in December. I coulcss there fore by reason of this large demand upon me I have not been able to de vote that time to t tic study ot legisla tion which should be given by evcrv member of congress, and hence have not been able to take a very active part in the deflates upon the floor ot the house. I have secured the passage through the house of a num ber of private pension bills and have upon the calendars of the house, tor its consideration, soma measures of general legislation, which will bo of great importance to the district, and which, there is a reasonable probabili ty to buppose, ere the adjournment of congress, will become laws. In addi tion to this I have secured, or assisted in sccuriug, since the first day of Jan uary, 18SG, original pensions or in creases, for forty-one ex-soldiers in my district, and have since that time, either examined papers iu or per formed some work iu couuectiou with over a thousaud applications for original pensions or increase that are now pending in the pension, depart ment. And this leads mc to make a few general observations to you, in rela tion to this subject of pensions, which 1 hope you will commuuicalo to the soldiers in your rcpective localities: First, tho law grautiug an increase of peusiou to .the widow of a deceased soldier from $3 to $15 per month, is of such a character tha all persons in terested iu it will receive the bcmllt of it, without paying out any attorney fees whatever. Certain pension at torneys in Washington have sent out printed circulars for the purpose of inducing beneficiaries tinder this law, to employ them as attorneys in such cases and thereby create obligations to pay them fees. Kvcry pension at torney iu Washington City, mho has sent out circulars ot this kind, knew that his services wero not needed ami would bo of no benefit to l lie pen sioner. The pension department ha taken all tho necessary steps and the increased amount will be paid lo the beneficiaries, without spending one cent on their part for attorneys fees; in the second place, pension attorneys in Washington can be of no service to the applicant for pension iu any case, and all money given or contracted to be given to a pension attorney in Washington, is that much absolutely thrown away. The only place where an applicant for a pension seeds an attorney, is in Kansas, for me purpose of preparing affidavit, writing letters and seeking out evidence with which to establish the claim for a pen-ion. The congressman for the district can receive this evidence and flic it in the pension department just as well, and as effectually as can any pension at torney in Washington, and will make no charge for his servicer. What is true of applications for pensions is also true of all applications for re muster, bounty and back pay. The attorney at Washington canjbe of no service to such applicants, and money exdended in that direction is money wasted. As the nomiuee of the Republican party I will state in a succicnt form my views upon prominent political and economic questions and if yon endorse them I shall regard them as the platform upon which to make the canvass in the district this fall. -7"lt I affirm the following proposition, to-wit: A belief in and demand for; First An honest, efficient and econ omical administration of public affairs; Second Anmle protection lo the LrighU of labor and of capital, with Fcqusl and exact justice to each; ThirU A tree school system; a ireo and untrammelled ballot and a just and accurate count; Fourth Fair and reasouaDio rates nf trnnsnortntion. without unjust dis- ? ! .: ...! .!!. wiaEnnnlila Anil crimiuauuu, uuu nitu uonuU.un.

The Charmed King Cure for Epllcjwy An Agne Core Toothache Preventive Charms for the Dispersion of Waits Some Novel Remedies. Years ago a. number of emigrants from Devonshire, Lancaster, Cornwall, Yorkshire, and other counties of England settled in northern Pennsylvania, near the New York line. Tbey have some of the finest farms in the state, and are the best of .citizens; but many of them cling with singular tenacity to a strange belief in tho efficiency of certain charms that have been used for centuries among the class to which they belonged in inglaniL CURES FOB XFILXST, AGUX, TOOTIIACHX. Tho charmed ring core for epilepsy is one of these. Only a few days ago a jeweler in one of the villages was called upon by a resi dent of tho settlement, who had with him his daughter, a sickly girl of 15. The girl pro duced nine English twopenny pieces, from which tho Jeweler was requested to mako a ring to fit the girl's middle finger. It was necessary, the farmer said, that a portion of each coin should be used, and tho rest of the pieces saved and returned to his daughter. Tho coins wero given her by nine boys, as near her own age as could bo found, which would give to tho ring a charm, which when sho put it on, would cure her of epi lepsy, from which sho was suffering. This, ho maintained, was a cure that never failed. If the victim of epilepsy was a male, the coins must be presented by nine females. Some of these farmers keep the skins of ad ders in or on their houses and buildings, be lieving them to bo a certain charm against fire. To euro ague the patient is taken to a spot where two roods cross, and an oak is found as near the spot as possible. A lock of bis hair is lifted up and driven into the tree with an ash peg. The patient must then tear himself loose, leaving the hair sticking in tho tree, and walk away without looking behind. Sufferers with erysipelas, by wearing in a silken bag around their necks a toad from which the right hind leg and the left f ore leg bas been cut, until tho mutilated reptile dies, will get well of the disease. The tongue cut from a living fox. these charm believers say, carried about the person, will word off dis ease of all kinds; but as the person carrying one of these fox tongues will surely die if he should happen to meet a fox at any cross road!!, the charm is pel !om invoked. Ono old resident of the settlement carries in his jiocket constantly an immense tooth from a human jaw. Tho tooth, he says, was taken from the mouth of a man after be was dead, who was hanged in Ilertf ordshire more than 100 years ago, and was carried by the present owner's father, grandfather, and great-grandfather. It is carried as a preventive of tooth ache, tho tooth from a dead person's mouth being a certain charm against that malady. The owner of the tooth says be never had the toothache in his life. A double hazelnut carried in tho pocket or about the person is also a preventive ot this painful ailment. Tho charms for the dispersion of warts be lieved m by many of thoe honest farmers are numerous and most singular. For in stance, if a person with worts on his or her hanls will writo down the number of them on the bond of a tramp's hat without tho tramp knowing it, be will carry tho warts away with him that is, they will gradually disappear from the jwrson's hands and appear on those or tho tramp. OETTISO RIO OK WAttTS ANO WESS. Another way to get rid of worts fa for the person to too a funeral iss unexiectodly, wherever he may lie, and as it passes rub hi warts quickly and repeat the words, "Warts and cori-M'3ss away and never more re turn." Green ieas may also lie used to ad vantage in taking off warts. Iet the afflicted person toko as many peas as he has warts and touch each wart with a different pea. Hu must then wrap each pea iu a seitarate pieco of paper, and bury them secretly in the shade of an ash tree or under a hazel bush. If neas are not in season and the person with warts does not care to try Uio efficacy of any of tho aliove-nameil charms, let him select as many pebbles as he has warts. Sewing them up iu a small bag, he must take them to where four roads cross anil throw the bag over bis left shoulder. This charm will never be resorted to, however, by persons who have no mali ciousness in their hearts, for if by chance any other persons should find tho lag and open it the warts will appear on his hand. A wen is usually a troublesome and un sightly thing to be olRictnl with, but the vic tims of wens need not suffer long if they !) lieve in the English charm. Take a common snake, hold it by the head and tail, and draw it backward and forward nine times over the wen; then cork the snake in a bottlo and bury it. If that fails, the patient must not repine, but simply wait until the next May Day. Itise early in the morning of that day before the sun has disturbed the dew. Goto a grave yard, and by passing the hand three times from head to foot over the crave, col lect the dew that lies on the grave of the last young person who was buried in tho yard. If the victim of the wen is a woman the grave must be that of a man, and vice versa. Ap ply the dew immediately to the wen, and cure is guaranteed. The charm for curing nosebleed is a curious one. If a person is subject to nosebleed ho may effect a cure by going to a person of the opposite sex and requesting him or her to pur chase a pieco of lace, sucn as may be specified, for the person making the request. When the lace is brought the irson must take it and neither pay for it nor return thanks for it. He must make a necktie out of the lace and wear it for nine days, and he will never have the nosebleed again. If the person is too modest or gallant to get the lace in that way, let him catch a toad, kill it, and wear it it around his neck in a bag until the stench sickens him. His nose will never bleed again. If a person has cramps in the legs or feet at night, be bas but to place bis stockings In shape of a cross on the floor in front of bis bed when he retires, or lay his slippers under the bed, soles upward. Placing tho shoes un der the coverlid at the foot of tho bed so that the toes protrude is also a sure preventive of cramps. No one who wears a snake skin around his head need ever have headache. If one feels a sty coming on his eye let him take a hair from the tail of a black cat, rub the eye with it nine times before midnight on the lint night of the new moon, and tho sty will die.

There is a woman in Chicago who, when she visits the theatre, always comes before the audience is seated. She used to have a bad babit of waiting until everybody else was settled for the evening, and then coming in and railing a commotion in getting to her seat. One vening she came in as usual, and after -ips; in the aide Ions enough to show an elegant new cloak, disturbed a whole row of people, who had to more to let her pass to berseat.
