If Dan Horn, one of Topeka's early pioneers, who recently died In Cali fornia, should come back to earth and drop down in Topeka, he would find that his old dream had been realized in part. Mr. Horn homesteaded the quarter section known as Horn's Addi tion. This comprises Westlawn, Gov ernor's Square and the thickly built up section bounded by Clay Street on the east and Fourth on the north. The little homestead shack of Mr. Horn's was near the present location of Christ Hospital. There the New Englander and his wife had a mighty pipe dream. They saw visions of Clay Street as the main business street of the town. Acting on the dream they erected, in '5S, a three story brick building on the northwest corner of Sixth and Clay, to be used as a hotel. To be sure the location of the new hotel did not look very business like at the time. There were three or four houses on the claim and a good crop of corn. The houses were the cement houses of Judge Dow at the northeast corner of Eighth nd Clay; the Ginno house oppoisite the present location of the Governor's mansion, and Peter Fisher's between Sixth and Seventh on Buchanan. However, this unpromising outlook did not trouble Mr. Horn. He had taken a squint at the future where he thought he could discern a series of sky scrapers on each side of Clay Street from Papan's Ferry to the Horn Hotel. But he had not looked straight. Papan's Ferry moved down to the foot of Kansas Avenue and .left the hotel and Clay Street as lonesome as an island in midocean. When he learned what had become of the ferry. Dan Horn saw his dream of Clay as a sec ond Wall Street vanish into thin Kan sas air. He sold the would-be hotetl for what he could get and in a few years, poor and disgusted .left the town for California. If Dan Horn's ghost could kick the dust off his feet and slip back some dark night, he would not be so disap pointed now. To be sure he would see no skyscrapers, but the appearance of Governor's Square and Westlawn would please him a bit- He could slip back to his litle pine box and say, 'Rest In peace, Dan, for the last of the quarter section Is being built up." Topeka Journal. STATE GOLF TOURNAMENT, preparations for state championship at wee burn. To be Held July 17th to the 21st Ken Haven Will Not Enter Ten n, but In dividual Players Will Take Part. Golf clubs all over the state are busy preparing for the state tourney which begins at the Wee Burn club's links, Stamford, July 17 and lasts until the 21st. The New Haven Country club will be right In the field with a strong team and with some formidably indi vidual en tries. The club last year won the individual championship with Dr. William Kent Shepard, of the Yale faculty. Its team was sent down to defeat by a few strokes by the splen did golfing aggregation, the Brooklawn club of Bridgeport. Dr. Shepard will again compete and he will again be a factor in the cham pionship, although Wee Burn has two cracks who will be favorites because of their familiarity with the home course. Dr. Shepard Is captain of the Coun try club team this year. His eextette is not yet chosen, but five of the six men will be, in all probability. Dr. Shepard, captain; Charles H. Zimmer man, Roger S. White, 2d., E. S. Parme lee and William H. Ely. The sixth player may be either William A. Rice or E. S. Bronson, M, H. Marlln, one of the most valuable former members of the team, is not competing in the team matches this year and will not be on the aggregation. As made up the team Is good, but it went to Wee Burn last week and was beaten so that chances are that It will not, without considerable reversal of form, defeat the strong club on the home links at Stamford. The New Haven Golf club will enter a few players, but It is understood that it will send no team down to Wee Burn. The strongest players on the New Haven golf team are members of the Yale 'varsity team who are not In the city In July. The spring tournament season Is over at the New Haven Country club links and nothing remains there now but pick-up matches, but some Inter esting Informal events are likely before the state tournament. The members of the team are giving a good share of their time to putting the finishing touches upon their form and will go to Wee Burn In excellent shape. Robert Shields, professional coach at the Country club, has left this city for the summer and has gone to Eastern Point, where he Is In charge of the links of Morton F. Plant. He will re turn In the fall. His place at the New Haven Country club is taken by George Quentln of Whltneyvllle, a clever young golfer. Mr. Quentln Is also In charge of the course at Pine Orchard.

Kills School Ship Boy. Commander C. C Hanus, of the school-master St- Mary's, and superten dent of the New York Nautical School, in a letter to Secretary Palmer of the New York Board of Education, received July 10, announces the death at sea of Irving Hendrickson, son of his pupils. The lad died June 19, at the height of the storm, from congrestive chill, com plicated with pneumonia, after an Ill ness of three days. The letter, dated Lisbon, June 25, gives an account of the roughest voyage the St, Mary's ever had. Commander Hanus sends a copy of his log for the voyage, which shows the boys did efficient work in the face of great perils. On June 12 the choolship met a gale shifting from southwest to northwest, and although keeping well south, on the following day the craft . passed within eightmiles of an iceberg, In lati tude 39.49 north, longitude 46.44 west, an unusual position for an iceberg. On the night of June 15 the swell was very heavy and the schoolship labored as though In a gale. The next day a gale sprang up, which came from the south- The ship strained heavily and was hove to at eleven A.M. On June 17 It blew a gale in fierce gusts, and the captain was obliged to run two points from his course on account of the set. The iboys put In a third night with but little sleep. Captain Hanus remarked: "The St. Mary's is a fine old ship, but she can probably give points to any other craft afloat on uncomfortable motions," TJie gale continued on the ISth, It be ing, in the captain's judgment, prob ably the record gale for June- On June 19 the ship was hove to under fore and main topsails. The seas were tremend ous. The ship now and then lurched so that the crew were thrown off their feet. Some sustained minor injuries. The captain says: "But little sleep for five nights: This beats all former re cords 'for bad weather. Routine of course interrrupted, but we are making fine sailors of our -boys." In the midst of this storm Hendrick son died. He was burled at sea on the afternoon of the 20th. For June 21 beautiful weather was reported.. The ship arrived at Lisbon In good order on the afternoon of June 25, The boy Hendrickson had friends in New Ha ven Conn. , SPECIAL BARGAIN DAY TO-DAY At J. Johnson & Sons, the Exclusive Clothiers.

Splendid blue serge suits, each on guaranteed strict ly pure wool and fast colors, made by the best workmen, and having all of the qualities of the highest art of the up-to-date tailor will be offered to-day and to-night for $3,50.

Also gray iserge suits, cut single or double breasted, finished right up to the highest mark, and everything connect ed with them of 'the most perfect and satisfactory character, will be sold to day for $10 a suit. You can't duplicate them for $15. Indped, they were made to 'sell at $15 and are well worth It. But Johnson said: "Let them go to day for $10, and give the public the benefit of the sale."
