Graduate of Allan Commercial College Got a Fine Place- A biographical sketch of W. Furse appeared in the July number of the Phonographic Magazine pub- lithed at Cincinnati, Ohio, from which the following extracts are tak en: On the Hth of Novembor Mr. Furei placed himself under the instruction of E. 0. Allen and devoted all his en ergies to the study of phonography until the following May, when for two months he accompanied the old re- different view of the situation and it will in all probability require a de cision or decisions of that court to settle these questions. "Without citing authorities, or giving reasons for my views, I will state them to you briefly as follows: "County officers now in office will continue to hold their offices without re-election or appointment during the -ensuing year, except in cases where sheriffs and treasurers are now filling their second terms. As to other cases there will be no vacancies which an be filled by appointment except in case of death, resignation or re moval. "Where sheriffs and county treas urers are filling their second terms vacancies will arise immediately up on the expiration of those terms which must be filled by appointment, and to which appointment the present incumbents are not eligible. "It is my judgment that sheriffs and treasurers now holding their first terms will not be eligible for a second term it they continue to hold the of fice during the ensuing year. 'While the title of the law is broad enough to cover all county officers, except county commissioners, the body of the act seems to restrict its application to the officers named, and therefore it does not in my judg ment affect the eleotion of. oounty high school trustees." Vt J. RUSE. Farmers' Institutes. The Kansas State Agricultural col lege held over 100 Farmers' institutes during the past summer. These sum mer institutes were unusually suc cessful. The attendance averaged (30 per institute. The college fjree is ready July 1 to take up the work in Farmers' institutes this summer and has the funds for holding 160 meetings. The eollege sends two speakers to each institute, paying all their ex penses, and also prints the programs and posters for institutes without charge. The farmers holding the institute put up the posters, push the advertising, furnish a place for hold ing the meeting and present papers and addresses for half the program. It will pay you to hold an Institute in your community. For full in formation in regard to working up a good meeting address, Farmers' In titutes, Agricultural college, Man hattan, Kansas. Burned More Wheat. Another wheat field fire ia reported from near Solomon, Messrs. Gould, Skaggs and Rundle having a loss of about 60 acres. Fifty men did their best to stop the blaze but could not do it. The Union Pacific has a force of men burning fire guards along the track and moving back the wheat to lessen the danger. It Dazzles The World. . No discovery in medicine has ever created one quarter of the excitement that has been caused by Dr. King's New Discovery for Consumption. Its se verest tests have been on hopeless vic tims of consumption, pneumonia, hemorrhage, pleurisy and bronchitis, thousands of whom it has restored to perfect health. For coughs, colds, asthma, croup, hay fever, hoarseness and whooping cough it is the quickest surest cure in the world. It is slod by J. M. Gleissner who guarantees satisfaction or refund money. Large bottles iOc and $1.00. Trial bottles free. OABTOniA. lean Us lei Yw Haw han fagM ):ke that of Ohio, giving high school advantages." He expressed entire satisfaction with work in the institute T and urged every member to go ou resolved to promote these new ideas, Prof. Niesley made a new ruling this morning that those entering dur ing or after roll call be considered tardy. The various methods of teaching beginning reading classes were dis cussed In Prof. Rose's room. A com bination of the phonic, object and sentence method was deemed far superior to the old plan. The subjunctive and potential modes afforded the usual discussion in Prof. Ambrose's grammar class. SANTA FE'S CHANGE OF NAME Road Hai Altered Name and Adopted a New Trade Mark The Santa Fe railroad has changed its name, The directors have deed ed to drop the acoent mark over the "e"in re, a change which most of the public have already anticipated I he road has adopted as a trade mark emblem the word Santa Fe on the bar of a cross within a circle, It appears on the new folder, together with a representation of an Indian blanket which makes a very attrao tive cover. The cross within a oircle is full of symbolism appropriate to great transcontinental line. Kropff Burned the Field. -The Manchester News says that Prophet Kropff took speedy measures to clean up his wheat field on which he lost $500. It says: "The threshers were no more than out of the field when Mr. Kropff set fire to the straw and stubble, thus destroying every thing on the place that would tend to remind him of his late lamented vision.' Exit Prophet KroDff." - Watching the Construction. M. Low, ehairman of the board of oounty commissioners, is spending a few days in town watching the con duction of the foundation for the court house addition. Mr. Low is one of the most careful and conscien tious commissioners the county has overbad and he look closely after the people's interests. The Third district made a good choice when it (elected him (or he has not only been mindful of Its interests but has as chairman of the board riven the whole oounty his best attention. The board ia strengthened by the presence of such men as Commissioner Low and whatever he doea will be done right. Shlftinj Soil.

On the 8th of July he again placed himself umlor the instruction of Mr. Alien (who had in the meantime opened a school of his own at Abilene, Kansas,) and about the middle of September he entered upon his official duties. In a recent letter Mr. Allen writes of Mr. Furse as follows: "The per sistency with which Mr. Furse pur sued his phonographio studies was something very unusual. I have known him to sit at his desk taking dictation for periods of three hours without any pause or hesitation, and he continued this nerve-exhausting work for weeks at a time. During the first three months of his study he did not, with one exception, miss an evening of study or praotice after having spent the entire day with bis work at the college. I attribute his success to his perseverance and con stant application to his work." Shorthand notes were reproduced in fac simile from the first case re ported by Mr, Furse. Ho receives a salary of $2,600 a year, and is now spending his summer vacation of three months among the snow-capped peaks ot tne Rockies. Mr. Furse was the first graduate of the Allen Commercial college, and will be remembered as having been with City Clerk Wyandt and as bav ing reported a number of oases in the courts here. WILL BOTTLE COCA COLA. R- I. Woods Gets Exclusive Sight for This Territory. R. I. Woods' Sand Springs bottling works has been doubled in capacity and is doing the largest business in soda pop manufacturing in central Kansas. In addition a snecial de- i partmcnt has been opened that of bottling and carbonating Coca Cola, the favorite soda fountain driuk. Mr. Woods has secured the right for this territory, 100 miles In every di rection from Abilene, for bottlim' Coca Cola. The Coca Cola is shipped here from the manufactory in barrels, csrbonated and bottled. It promises to be one of the favorite hot weather drinks and is said to be the favorite wherever Introduced. This privilege means a big business. IF KROPFF ONLY HAD N'T. His Prophecy Wirei Crossed and Spoiled His Reputation. If Prophet Kropff had not mixed up his prophecies what a great man he would he! Last winter he declared that there would be no wheat but a big corn crop. His prophecy wires wero crossed, that's all. Had they kept straight he would be a greater mnn than Elijah right now. Where he did hit it was when he said oats put in before March 20 would be good but a man can always hit it on that itnnnunceniont. Sleenlessness.

INSURANCE ALL RIGHT, City Milli Get $15,000 Without Any Question- The adjuster for the Millers' Mutual insurance companies in which the City Mills were insured was here last evening and said there was no ques tion about the payment of the $16,000 insurance. It will be paid in full. The firm will then decide definitely on rebuilding. SOLD HIS CORN- Enterprise Man Finally Made a Profit on Hit Grain. One of the former employes of Hoffman's mills at Enterprise sold to the mill yesterday 4,000 bushels of corn at 60 oents a bushel. He bought It two yean ago at 16 oenti and has paid insurance and storage until it stood him In 38 cents a bushel. His friends have "joshed" him a eood deal about his speculation but they quit when he gathered in $2,000 and cleared $180. NEW VARIETY OF WHEAT, Dickinson Farmers Interested in a Change of Seed- The report comos from the Minne sota School of Agriculture tlut new varieties of wheat have been produced, by cross-fertilization, that will revolu- onize the culture of this cereal. Mr. Harwood, who reports the re sults, savs In the World's Work: The increaso of the new wheat over all old varieties will be at least two bushels por acre. In tho three states of Minnesota, North Dakota ana soutn Liimota there are, on an average, about fifteen million aores of land planted to wheat. When the new wheat is in use over all this region on increase of only two bush els per acrejwill niako a crop at least thirty million bushels larger than the old varieties would have yielded, At an average price of 75 cents per bushel, the increase In wealth in this region will be $22,600,000 a year." He reports that tho wheat tested last season leaves about four thousand bushels to be disposed of to other farmers; and so will have a marked effect upon the harvest of 1901, None of the old wheat with which Prof. Hayes was working, produced over about nineteen bushels to the acre; while one of the new wheats which he secured by his scientific labors pro duced over forty-two bushels per acre. The average of the new varieties has been twenty-seven bushels per acre or over, The prospect is therefore exceedingly bright for a very large increase in our wheat crop without any increase in acreage. No one can foretell the result of this one stroke of science in improving the condition of the human race. During last May an infant child of our neignoor was suffering from cholera infantum. The doctors had given up all hopes ot recovery. I took a bottle of Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy to the house, telling them I felt sure It would do good if used according to directions. In two days' time the child had fully recovered. The child is now vigorous and healthy. I have recommended this remedy frequently and have never known "it to fail. Mrs. Curtis Baker, Bookwalter.
