STRUCK COAL AT ST. MARYS ixxxxo-coooxooooooooooooooi eoooooooooooo? , A JAYIIAWKER IN SOUTHERN EUROPE, 4 ' . . " By W. T. Morgan Jn Hutchinson News. 1 Were INgging WH on t Houghton Farm. STRIKE 8 FEET FROM GROUND Thought to Be Continuation of BurUngame Field Soft Pro duct and Burn Freely. St. Marys, Sept. 16. A. 8; Hough ton li dreaming of free coal this winter. And If his fondest hopes are not smashed he will have some coal to anil. While men were digging a well on his farm south of St. Marys 8at urday afternoon, a vein of coal near ly 11 Inches thick was struck. Mr, Houghton took two bushels of the tuff to Manhattan and he found that it burned freely. Mr. Houghton had visited the farm Saturday and started back to Manhattan when word was sent him that the men digging the well had truck coal. Mr. Houghton imme diately, turned back and there was a layer of black looking stuff. He did not know that it was coal, how ever,, until he found that it would burn. Today he is busy telling his friends about his good luck. The vein was struck about" eight feet from the ground surface and under a layer of rock about two feet thick. The coal is soft. and looks very much like the Burlingame coal. Some believe that the vein is a con tinuation of the fields lying near Burlingame. ' The farm lies six miles south of St. Marys and three miles north of Maple Hill. DAWSON GOES TO WICHITA. also Turks, Egyptians, Big Raid Marked Arrival Investi gate Reported Law Violators.

Word of the murder of Morris P. Root, American superintendent of tha El Tlgre mines at Tepic, Mex., was brought here by the steamer Peru, which ' had nearly 100 refugees aboard.' The mining ' engineer was intercepted by a few bandits at l.e was 'on his way to join employees of the company who were preparing to defend the mine property. He -was disarmed and cut to pieces. Root was 60 years old and had 1een in Mexico about 16 years. Max liambert, another American engi neer who arrived on the Peru, was left for dead by bandits who at tacked his home in Tepic.

We have been in Algiers for a ball day and an evening. It did not look like Africa to me. In the geogra phy I studied Africa consisted of a pale cream center called the desert of 8ahara, with green and yellow stripes around the edges, Algiers .. . iu -wA th man was on tne norm u v. and that much is correct. But the. high hills that rose from the coast as the Fran Joseph approached the rt. were covered with oeauuiui green stripes of cultivated gardens and orchards, dotted with white v...... !. dark foliaae of forest trees. The city itself rose from the harbor front like a semi-circle of an amphitheatre, tier of houses above tier, covered at various. points with churches, mosques and struc tures which I took to be palaces but which turned out to be restaurants. The blue of the Meditteranean was the foreground of this beautiful land- scape wnicn sireituw water's edge to the lighter shade of blue in the southern sky. The pic ture was one that artist's brush would fail In copying or writer's pencil in describing. c Algiers is a city of over 100.000 population. It has better looking buildings fti its, ousiness pistrict than Kansas City and its apartment houses are models which New York could copy. One is hardly prepared for eight story structures in Africa but here they are. And down the street go the camel, the automobile, the donkey and the trolley car, evi dence that the orient and the Occi dent are getting very much mixed. Algiers was a good town when Col umbus discovered America. The na- tlve Africans had been conquered and assimilated by the Arabs and a strong Mohammedan state resulted. Then the foolish Christians drove the Jews out of Spain and many of them came to the protection of the more liberal Ottomans. The Mo hammedan religion is not much on progress and its strong teachings in philosophy do not develop manufac tures and trade. A little over a hundred years ago the principal oc cupation .of the Algerian was piracy. It was an easy Job, a, good deal like oDeratln on Wall street. The great objection was to locate the other fel low's ship, capture and possess its contents, and hold the sailors as slaves for work or ransom. Several years after our Declaration of In dependence there were 35,000 Chris tian slaves held in Algiers at one time. When the commercial na tions of the world could stand this no longer they began a war against the pirates in which the United States took an honorable part and put an end to the great prosperity of the Algerians and their neigh bors. It was difficult to get down to hard work, and Algiers was like a boom town in the west when the boom is busted. Fifty-eight years ago the French took some excuse for "intervention" and came across from their own country, a night's sail to the north. Thus Algiers became French and the language of Paris, the ways of Paris, and much of the habits of , Paris are the superficial coat on this city and this people to day. ' It was a beautiful afternoon when we landed and drove through a lane of palm trees to the park which some old sultan planted many years ago with never a thought of the profit his descendants would get by acting as guides for American tour ists. We had fought our way to the carriage through a mob of Arabs who besought us to buy things, from oriental rugs to embroidered leath er, hand made brass goods, villan ous looking knives and delicious fruit. During the two hours' drive these descendants of the pirates nev er left us, and I often got mixed up in repeating "how beautiful" about the landscape and "no, no" to the running salesmen. That part of the city where the French and other for eigners have their homes is a dis trict of beautiful villas, with gar dens and flowers and trees. That part where the Arabs reside is a collection of narrow streets, curious houses and wonderful smells. They were all "Arabs" to me, but that means Moors. Spanish Jews and natives or all parts of. northern Africa, snd or all colors except wnite., me mcu wore the fes or the turban and as! a rule were attired In a costume which was a cross between a bath robe and a bed spread. They wrap ped this around them In a rather decent manner and to my surprise it stayed on. There was not much work being done. A store was about four feet by ten feet and the proprietor sat on the sidewalk. He only had one kind of goods and he evidently did not advertise. few yards there would be a care with a few Arabs sitting In the front, sometimes drinking corree dui us ually Just thinking. Vegetables ana fruit, fancy metal ornaments, ordin ary household goods and tobacco were the staples in the shops. The ..f itaaif waa almost eight feet Bll v - wide and was generally so steep that it was a series of steps, down which ran the sewerage, in which played the children. There were ladies in our party who criticised cements but the Arabs don't mind criticism from such un believers. . , An Arab woman is dressed in Droper fashion when she winds a sheet of eoft white goods around her self and puts on a veil which covers her face uo to her eyes. The gown culminates in some way as a turban and covers her forehead, so all that a man can see of that lady Is a fhoatlikfl figure with two bright eyes. I was naturally interested be cpuse the costume was different from that which is worn at home. except at an early morning fire. At first I refrained from curious looks for fear I might offend the ladies, But I tried a look at one ana ne did not seem to mind. I looked at her and she looked at me. I imag ined I saw the beginnings of a lady like Arabian wink. Just to be po lite I would have winked once my self but I saw a half dozen male Arabs observing the situation and I promptly decided that winking was not in good form for an American at anrh a time. So I never will know whether that Arabess was winker or a deceiver, but I am alive and well, which is some satisfaction. c c In the eveninK our party from the ship wanted to do something ex citing. We hired a guide and told. him to show us Algiers by electric light. He marched us up and down several streets and Into a .moving picture show! The first film was one of those thrilling melodramas of the American cowboy, the villain, the sheriff, the fight and the final tri umph of innocence with matrimony, That was the best Algiers could do for us in the way of devllishness, so we went to the city square and'heard a good French military band. ' , Algiers is becoming quite a, win ter resort, especially for French and English. The climate is like that of the Riviera and the additional charm of the Arab and the Moor, makes it more interesting. And then there are the "bargains." No Arabian mer chant has a "fixed price." He is readv to meet his customer half way. The shopping instinct, wnicn is strong in some of us, is thus given a treat opportunity, i saw a v,ai- cago lady offer $3 for a rug which the merchant priced at $25. Just before the boat sailed she got it for $3.50. A very curious sword was coveted for a present for some man at home. The lady and the merchant put in forty-five minutes and the weapon goes to a fellow in Boston at a cost of two dollars, when the orig inal demand was ten dollars. Bar gain hunting with women is a good deal like duck hunting with men. When the ducks appear in the fall the duckster cannot resist the call of the game. When the "bargains" appear as they do in Algiers, the bargain hunter refuses to look at scenery or art, and goes after the game. Very few duck hunters ever get any ducks and very few bargain hunters get any bargains. The duck hunter gets rheumatism and the bargain (hunter gets stu)ck. But they have had the fun of the hunt and they will respond to the call when it comes again. A WITNESS AGAINST SULZER DISAPPEARS New York,. Sept 16. Frederick L.
