Motions were offered in a pending case and an attorney had started to address the court when Rosa Weil, without warning, stood up with a levelled revolver and fired at Judge McDonald. F. L. Wetzel, a witness, sitting nearest her seized her before she could fire a second time and several other persons near by sprang to the woman and wrenched the revolver from her hand.

WILSON MEANS BUSINESS Secretary of Apiculture Says Pur ' Food Law Will Be Enforced. The Act le Now In Force and Any One Who Violates It Does 8o At His Peril. Washington, Jan. 8. "We cannot say definitely what class we shall reach first on the enforcement of the pure food and drugs act," said Secre tary Wilson, of the department of agriculture, Wednesday, "out you may take It to be certain that among the first to be reached will be the fellows who defy the law." The secretary's statement was made after he had read a circular re cently issued by the National Whole sale Grocers Association, which as serted that "there Is nothing In the law that prohibits the sale of goods containing any particular coloring matter or preservative. "Parties desiring to use fictitious names might organize firms or cor porations under these names. Fic titious names may be used with im punity until next October." "While the machinery for enforce ment of the law has not been com pleted yet," continued Secretary Wll son, "the law is now In force and any merchant or manufacturer who vio lates It doejb so at his p?rll. If any of these gentlemen think they can de fy the law with impunity, let them try it." The secretary said that labels now in the hands of manufacturers and dealers may be used until the first of October because the department has no desire to Impose upon them a heavy loss. "But," said the secretary, "on all products entering Into Inter-state or foreign commerce It will be neces sary to have a label that will show what the package contains. If the old label does not show this a paster put en the package must show It For Instance, If package contains cot tonseed oil, either the label or the paster must show that It Is cotton seed oil and not ollre oil. It un wholesome coloring matter Is used by the manufacture he will lay him self liable to prosecution. No ani line dyes or deleterious preserva tives will be permitted in food pro ducts and manufaetnrers may as well make up their mind to that and ad just their business accordingly." Just before the holiday reoes an appropriation of $250,000 was made by congress to enable Secretary Wil son to obtain a sufficient oorp ef ehemlsts and Inspector to enforce the law.

The bio- hsv itorstre headquarters of J. J. Schneider on Buokeye has just been completed by a new coat of paint and attracts muoh attention by its tasteful appearance, atr. eonnei der haa done a srood servloe lor Abi lene In establishing a hay market that r " o J. J. SCHMEIDEI., is reliable and insures a constant sup ply of feed for the town. Few persons realise that the ser vice of the hat supply is greatly les sened ty the plowing up of prairie near town and its transformation into cultivated farms. Very little good hay ground is now left compared to a few vearB ago. This year the grasB yield was very poor and not half the bay per acre was put up oompared with 1905. As a result the hay mar ket has been booming. Prairie hay in Kansas City brings 9.80 to ia ao oording to quality and it is easy to see what this means for hay prices here. Mr. Schneider has realized that Abilene must ship in a great deal of hav and he has arranged bis hay mar ket for carrying a large stock through the fall and winter. It is equipped with automatic carriers run by elec tric motor, new scales and is one of the most complete nay barns in the west Mr. Schneider is prepared to deliver baled hay on short notice anywhere in the city and has over 200 tons now on band. The benefit of this market is Important to the hay nsers and is much appreciated. Of course it is impossible to keep the prices of hay low when hay is soaroe and is bring ing high prices elsewhere but Mr. Schneider has the good of his cue tomers at heart and he gives them all possible advantage. The benefit of his enterprise will be more fully ap preciated as the years go by and it promises to become a valuable estab lishment for the community. Hones to Be Chaplain. Rev. E. R. Brown went to Topeka where he will remain until the legis lative session opens, at least. He hopes to be elected chaplain of the senate and has a good chance to se cure that position. Entertained at Dinner. Judge and Mrs. J. A. Flack enter talned a dinner party of twelve last week at their home on West rittn. The table was decorated with carna tions and smilax. After dinner cards occupied the evening. Out-of-town guests were Mrs. Arthur Edson of Storm Lake, Iowa, and Mis Tesaie Hamilton of Ellsworth. Marion Stockholders' Visit- J. 8. Dean, T. O. Kelley, W. H. Carpenter, D. W. Wheeler, C. W, Thompson, Rosse Case, and J. Forney were up from Marion upon an ap plication before Judge Moore for as iniunction relating to the Marion opera bouse.
