This was the legislature which adopted the statutes of Missouri entire, substituting the word "Kansas" for "Missouri" wher ever necessary. Dr. Stringfeilow was called the father of Atchison and start ed the first newspaper in Kansas, the Squatter Sovereign. Stringfeilow was an ardent champion of the proslavery cause, but, as history tells, his party was unsuccessful against John Brown, Jim Lane and the other antislavery leaders in making Kansas a slave state. How It Sounded. Gov. McLean of New Hampshire was talking about Tlenry James' criticism of American speech.

L OVE is a very strange thing, whether it be in novels or just e in plain, prosaic Chicago. There is no telling how it is going to affect those who catch the disease, if it is a disease, as some scientists affirm, and the antics it makes people do are legion. To some love comes like a sudden burst of sunlight, and after that the I | world becomes a perfect heaven or a perfect place of torment, according as to how the one loved treats the one loving, Some learn to love gradually and there are those who say this is j the best plan, as love thus developed! lasts the longer. Be tha. as it may, | the story following is one that deals | with the sudden sunburst love and ] the attendant melodramatic conse i hero of the ! a)| at quenccs. Walter Graham is tlu tale, and in this case he happens to j be a young clerk with a salary which Is barely adequate for bis own neces sities and the few dissipations in which he indulges. Once in awhile he takes a trip across the lake of a Sun day. and it was on one of these trips that he fell in love. She was on the boat, wind tossed her hat from her pretty' brown head and with a little scream she turned to a youi*t man beside her and exclaimed; "My hat lias gone into the lake; oh, what shall I do?" Now, the young man standing by her tide was Walter Graham, and with a gallantry born from the flash of her brown eyes he hurried to the side of the boat and found the hat had caught on a beam near the water's edge. He hurried below, and after a deal of strenuous fishing with a long pole he rescued tho millinery, end with a very red face, with it in hi;; hand, he came on deck. She thanked him profusely and that was how the trouble began. From that time on Walter Graham j had no eyes for any other woman in j the world. He had ascertained her place of residence, but what was more to his purpose, the place in which she was employed, and be began to lay siege to her heart with all the ardor of a youth attacked for the first time with an affection of tho heart. The girl was besieged with invita tions to lunch, with opportunities to see the reigning theatrical productions and all sorts of other things that are supposed to be alluring to the feminine mind, and had she been of a coquettish nature might have had no end of fan al ills expense, but she was not alto gether of that port, although, as events will show, she was not averse to play ing a trick or two in order that she might further her own fun. The girl was engaged to a young man of whom she was very fond, and so she tried in every manner to dis courage the attentions of Graham, but to no purpose. The young man would never lake no for an answer. He was persistent in his attentions in season and out of season, for he had a bad attack of what is often designated as The rude I 1 * "puppy love." No amount of cold water that the the young woman would throw young man's affections seemed in any on manner to cool his ardor. The more she rebuffed him tho more determined 1 he was. It was truly a case in which true love did not run smoothly, and the girl was not the one to forget any obstacle she might put in the young man's way. Things went on this way for some time. The girl did not like to hurt tlm young man's feelings, and yet she [jJ j i \ i-il * WHb til | j | ■ r l j : I I j j I I I ! I j 'MJ V .4' Vi "MY HAT HAS GONE INTO fUE LAKE." was determined 10 be rid of his at tentions. She pleaded previous en gagements as often as she could and tried in every way that is known to a young woman to show him that his attentions were not wanted, and she as well as many other young women know a good many ways in which to discourage young men. The game had been going on some little time when Graham got up a big house party. Some of his relatives had taken a summer cottage at one the lakes in northern Illinois, and nothing would do but that the girl and some of her friends must go up for a week-end outing Now, the girl fought against the trip, but it was of no use. was insistent. Finally a party made up and by clever maneuvering the girl had her fiance invited, next thing was to be able to keep Gra ham at a distance while she enjoyed the outing with her own The problem was a clear one and she was equal to the occasion, as what follows will indicate. Graham worked hard for days make the outing a success, of the auspicious occasion he had his tailor make aim a handsome white flannel suit, and when the day of the party arrived he was all spick and span in his suit, wi.h a handsome Pan ama hat to top it off. The people gathered at the train with their parcels, handbags, suit i vises and other luggage, ahd the chap irons were also on deck, lynx-eyed and or. i'fie alert. The girl was radiant in a pretty white gown, but she wore a worried look. Of Graham was The young man. to In honor with Graham?" she whispered to her "Leave tho matter to mo." replied the friend. "I will help you out. 1 have been mixed up in just that kind "What on earth am i going to do friend Violet. of trouble many times, and I am sure I can assist you." Thus assured, the girl plucked up courage and her face grew as bright as the day. In due season they ar rived at the lake and the fit's! thing Vio let suggested was a sail on the blue ex panse of water. Graham was enthusiastic, and he con trived to get a boat in whioh Violet and her young man should accompany the girl arid himself. This left the girl's young man on shore, and he scowled and fumed right heartily until Violet got an opportunity to whisper some thing in his ear, and then he smiled, also. As (he boat pulled out from the shore the young man was left chuckling to him self, and seemed thoroughly resigned to the fate of remaining on shore. The little boat plowed through the blue waters of the lake, and ail went well until the girls decided they wished to It was Vio change places in the boat, let who suggested It, and an attempt was t0 niak ® the change, when Gra ham . > n unaccountable manner, was tipped into the wa.ar. The girl* screamed, and tried to save him, but over he went, flannel suit and a)| . and when he came up he clutched at the side of the boat and hung thra M*® a limp, white rag. After a deal of excitement and trou hie, he was hauled aboard the'boat, and the little party returned. There was much excitement when young Graham was landed at the little boat pier like a drowned rat, and, of course, he had to burry to the cot tage, for he was as wet as could be. Everybody seemed to feed badly about the accident, but there was noth ing for Graham to do but hide from sight. His flannel suit was ruined, and he had no other clothes with him. The girl, of course, had to fall back S\ * / ' t. H\ t >1 ALL KI'fCK AND SPAN. on her own young man as an escort, and Violet and her young man soon joined the girl, and everything was as lovely as could be. Graham remained in the cottage all day long. After his flannel suit had been dried in the sun he found that it had shrunk so he could uot possibly be seen in it, fur the trousers came nearly to his knees, and the coat sleeves stopped short at the elbows. Poor Graham was compelled to re main indoors all day, while the other members of the party had a great good time. Finally when night, came on and it drew near train time the poor, unfortunate young man, under 1 cover of the darkness, sought the train, and hid himself away back in a dim corner, where he nursed his dis appointment and chagrin. Now and again he could hear the laughter of the merry crowd in the other end of the car, and it cut him to the quick to find that, the one he wor shiped was the merriest of them all. He could not hear what they were say j log, and it was well for his peace of \ mind that he could not, for most of | the merriment had him for its butt, j "How did Graham happen to fall | overboard?" asked a member of the party. j "He tripped over my foot," giggled : Violet. I "My, but didn't his flannel suit I shrink, though," exclaimed the girl, j "It was a fortunate accident, though, j wasn't it?" quetfed Violet, with a I roguish twinkle in her eye. "I do remember now that you told I the girl you would see her out of I her difficulty," remarked Violet's ! young man. "And I'm not so sure but I that, accident was well planned." j "Well, I told her I'd help her out, and it seems that 1 helped him out, too." said Violet.

"UNCLE JOE" IS INCENSED Hospitality That Counts a Good Deal in Legislation — President Disap proves of Growing Bureaucracy in Navy Department. M A S H I N GTON.— Secretary of State Root did not stay in W a s h i n gton long enough to warm his desk chair after taking oath of office. Nevertheless he is secretary of .state and the country feels easier. The people are perfect ly content that he should go away 1 off to Labrador to get a complete rest from a hard year's labor in his profession, gain that physical tone that is so necessary to a public man and come back like a young man of 30 to take up diplomatic and state puzzles with a zest. 0 £ Mr. Root is the youngest looking man there ever has been in the public service, and he will come back from the wilds of Labrador looking little more than half his age. There was a general approval throughout official circles when Mr. Root was named by Mr. Roosevelt as premier of his ad ministration. No one had guessed this able statesman, who had a little over a year before resigned from the cabinet because he wanted to get back into the profession of law, where he could earn a competence before he grew too old. Few believed that, with all the enormous fees he had won in that short time, that he had acquired a sufficient fortune with which to re turn to public life. Rut it appears that within that time Mrs. Root has fallen heir to several millions, and her distin guished husband can follow the bent of his ambition In a political way. "I guess I was bitten by the diplo matic bug during our trouble in China over the Boxer uprising," said Mr. Root the other day, when he admitted that he wanted to be secretary of state. Mr. Root conducted much of the diplo matic business of that period. Secre tary Hay being absent, from Washing ton.

Better Estimate of Canada. tCE PRESIDENT Fairbanks seemed to strike a popular chord in his ad dress at Sault j Ste.

Mr. F a i r b a n ks has seen a great deal of Canadians during the seven years . he has been a member of the high j joint commission whose object has' been the settlement of a few trouble some questions between the coun tries.

A Strict Economist.

This being a lie, so also was the companion story that the wife of the president of the exposition rep rimand'd hi:* and told him that a man of his age and position ought to have better manners, or words to that effect. The whole story is declared by "Uncle Joe" to have been a fabrication which did a gnat injury to a refined, gentle lady He does not care for "fakes" about himself, but his native southern chivalry—he we* born in North Caro lina—simply resents the slightest af front to a lady The speaker was in Washington a few days ago and took a look around. He was so many years at the head of the Louse committee on appropria tions and has been speaker of the u r genial the rS w .*9 f r Y-_, V / v. i 3 house, that he feels a semi-paternal interest in everything the government tloes in the way of spending money. His paternal instincts prompts him t<J teach economy, and above all strict ad herence to tha letter of the laws mak ing appropriations. He was not par ticularly well pleased, then, to find that congressional restrictions had been Ignored in digging foundations for the new agricultural department luilding, and that they had been es tablished in conformity with the plans of the trio of landscape architects whom the senate employed some years ago, instead of following the directions of the law that the new building should be where the present one stands. Congressman "Joe" Sibley. ■^lPEAKEK CAN ^ non growled at j this evasion of th« will of congress, ^ muttered a few re (fi marks that might 42; be interpreted to r mean a good many things, among , Xji others some diffi x Jj c u 11 y for the f sponsors for the S department build ing when they come before con —gress for more money next winter. Then he whirled away in a "red devil" automobile, caught a fast, train and hurried to the cool shores of lake Champlain, where Congressman "Joe" Sibley awaited him in a beautiful summer cottage and soon made him forget the annoyances he had encountered in Washington. Congressman Sibley is the rich oil man and stock raiser of Pennsylvania, who has been a republican, a prohibi tionist, a populist, a democrat, and then a republican again, but who is the most universally liked man in the house of representatives. And why should he not le popular? His three big touring car automobiles are at the command of hits friends. He gives on an average two sumptuous banquets each month during sessions of con gress in the marble mansion on K street built and occupied by the late John Sherman. These dinners cost about $25 a plate, and Sibley is not niggardly with his invitations. He has a swift yacht on Lake Champlain and a summer home where his congression al cronies are entertained in royal style. Sibley's popularity is not confined to his own side of the house, but all the democratic leaflet's are his guests al some time during the session, and the influence he can exert in a social way counts for a good deal in legislation Sibley can speak on the floor, but his big-hearted hospitality is his greatest card. k A-T The War and Navy Departments. HERE is a greal scurrying among officers and em ployes of the wai and navy depart ments nowadays. These two depart ments are about the only ones that have not figured largely in "graft" discoveries and army and navy officers are won dering how long they will escape the general scandal. The Bennington disaster, in which 65 sailors lost thcii lives, may draw the navy department into a general investigation, as Presi dent Roosevelt is very much wrought up over it, especially as there are hints that red tape and official delay are re sponsible for the explosion of the boil er. It is hinted that had prompt at T a T i : - tention been given to reports concern ing the conditions of the boilers tint accident would not have occurred. There has brown up in the war and navy department, particularly the lat ter, a bureaucracy that Presidenl Roosevelt is endeavoring to uproot, Bureaus act independently of each other, and there are constant jars and friction over nearly every detail of the service. The president learned of this corulition at first hand when he was assistant secretary of the navy, and endeavored to check it by centralizing p 0wer and responsibility as much as xhe condition still exists, howcver , to a considerable extent, and the efforts of what is known as the Keep investigating committee, a spe cial commission with Assistant Secre tarv of the Navy Keep at its head. win be direct ed toward curing the ev p j i The president is also determined to ! weed out of the department in Wash ingten army and navy officers who ; ^ & assignments here but j j who are really performing civilians' ! work.

One man who got rid of his appen dix with less trouble than some others who have to undergo an operation has nevertheless been unable to reconcile himself to the decorations of one of the subway stations, says the New York Sun.

Ml Night Ire3h Air Should How Through Apartment and How to Keep Off Draft. The lack of fresh air in a. sleeping room is responsible for many of the morning bad feelings. The.close, un pleasant taste iu the mouth, the un comfortable feeling about tho head, the languor of the whole body, are often the result of poorly ventilated sleeping rooms, not always possible in apartments. When one has a large house, with airy chambers. It is easy to ventilate properly; but in small bedrooms it is not always possible to admit fresh air it night without some one taking cold. Yet one must have fresh air in the Bleeping room. One woman who has thrbe children occupying one of the rooms of her tiny apartment always airs the rooms after the children are in bed and the last thing before she retires. Free ventilation is She covers the children up snugly, opens the windows, and, while they are raised, shakes out the clothes that have been worn during the day and hangs them where they will air thoroughly in readiness for the morn ing. The air in the room is changed and freshened before she closes the windows. This is a good plan, but, of course, it is only a poor substitute for the pure air that ought to be coming into the room all night. There is a sim ple arrangement by which this can be procured. A board about five inches high should be made to fit into the window. Its length must ire just the width of the window, and it should be hinged in the middle that it may be the more easily taken out and in. It must be fitted into tho window cas ing just below tiie bottom of the sash. The window is then closed as far as possible with the hoard in. This leaves a space between the upper and lower sash by which the fresh air is ad mitted in an indirect way.—Success Magazine. GOOD VEGETABLE PICKLES. Here Is Given a Recipe for a Mixed Pickle Somewhat on Tutti Frutti Order. A tut ti frutti jar is by no means un common, but a jar of all vegetables may be a novelty to some housekeep ers. Mrs. W. P. Moran, in Good House keeping, describes such a jar. Into it she puts tiny cucumbers, very small ears of corn, florets of cauliflower, tiny carrots, snap and wax beans, little silverskin onions, bits of horseradish, small green to matoes and muskmelions. The pickle vinegar is prepared aa follows: To a gallon of vinegar add tow and a half ounces of salt, Half a pound of flour of mustard, two ounces of turmeric, three of white ginger, sliced, one of cloves, half an ounce each of mace, black and white pep per, one-fourth of an ounce of cayenne. Put the vinegar on the tiro to heat; when it reaches the boiiing point add the mustard and turmeric mixed smooth with a little cold vine gar, stir till well blended with the vinegar, then take from the fire and add the other ingredients. When cold pour over the vegetables and tie close ly. Put in other vegetables as you obtain them. They are so small they do not require soaking in brine, but only to be washed and wiped before teing put in the jar. The Kitchen Drain. The kitchen drain is a very impor tant part of the household arrange ments, and it. is responsible for more annoyance and mischief than any other part o£ them; for the wastes of the kitchen contain a very large quantity of various matters, that by decomposi tion may become not only offensive but very unhealthful. As far es pos sible. it should be made so that the liquid part of the drainage may soak away in the soil, and so become grad ually decomposed and disposed of with out offense, if possible, the drain should have such an ample fall that the whole of the waste matters dis posed of may be well washed down, and the drain kept free from all de posits or sediment. The most con venient way of disposing of the waste from the kitchen is to separate as much as possible of the solid matters and burn thesq in the kitchen fire, col lecting them at each convenient time, when the sink is used, ar.d leaving only the liquid matter to flow into the drain. Dumb Children's Cheers, The gayety of deaf and dumb children finds expression, not in hand clapping alone, but in noisy cheers. The young inmates of the Royal deaf and dumb in stitute at Derby held carnival the other day, the occasion being the formal open ing of a new recreation ground. They had races and other sports, and the cheering at the success of a favorite was almost as noisy as that of children fa vored with full vocal powers. The new system of education of the dumb enables them to make intelligible sounds.— Westminster Budget. German Sweet Pickle. A German sweet pickle, well worth trying, is made from very young string beans. Cut the ends off the tiny pods, and remove the little beginnings of "strings,'' place in glass jars, and pour in the boiling spiced and sweetened vin egar just as if making sweet-pickled pears or peaches. If white wine vinegar is used the beans will retain their vivid green color and thus make a pretty aa well as a delicious relish. Mock Duck.

We got no relief from medicine, and were puzzled as to what caused the trouble, till a friend sug gested that possibly the coffee we drank had something to do with it, and advised that we quit it and try Postum Coffee.
