THE CHANUTE TIMES.
C. 8. NATION, fcaUor and Prop'r. CHAXUTE, - - KANSAS. KANSAS ITEHS OT 1KTERC8T. The Presbyterians of Tratt have bought judge Hashore'a house and after purifying it will use it for a par sonage. One of the youngest doctors gradu ated at Topeka this week is under conviction of complicity in grave rob bing. ; The return of a number of Kansas statesmen from Washington deprives Mr. McKinley of a lot of valuable ad visers. There is a merchant in Logan county who sold goods payable "when Bryan is elected." You can guess who he is in favor of for president in 1900. Six weeks ago on Atchison woman Announced to her friends that she had decided to move to Chicago. Since then the local papers have kept cases on her daily and she likes it so well that she has not departed yet A Garnctt woman got rattled when she went to vote the other day and handed the judges a letter to put in the ballot box instead of her vote. When it was handed back to her she said: "Oh, did I forget to put a stamp on it?" ' Rice county was visited by another big rain on the nigh of April 6. Never before has the ground been more thor oughly soaked at this time of the year. Crop prospects at the prasent time could not be better. An increased acreage over last year of both corn and broom corn has been planted. ' The chief of police of Wichita was last week presented with a gold star by the members of his force. The badge is a star of solid ' gold. The front is an elegant design of frez tan gent and carved on the back was "To Wm. Campbell, Chief of Police, From the Police Force." The prairie grass is exceedingly for . ward this year and only needs a few more warm days to push up and con ceal the brown stubs of last year's crop. Grass short, curly buffalo grass is the most valuable crop ever raised in western Kansas if harvested right ly; and the only way to properly har vest the same is through the medium of the cow. A superintendent of public schools says that country children are better fitted for the business of life than are their city cousins, lie draws his con clusions from the answers which chil dren of both kind have given to this question: "If I should give you a dol lar what would you do with it?" The country children have better business ideas, because they hear their parents discussing their business affairs of the household. They know how much the cow brought and the prices of eggs and butter. Town children seldom hear business affairs discussed. The Emporia Gazette says: "All the truck that Kansas raises, her wheati her corn, her broom corn, her beef, her hogs, her timber, her shceps' wool, is dumped raw into a.box car aud ship ped out of the state often a thousand miles away before it, finds a lot of men to work who will turn it into the finished product." There is a place in Germany or Holland that is noted for the largo per cent of stupid people in its population, but no one in that town ever thought of giving every mouthful of victual and eyery stitch of clothing lie wears, a two thousand mile before using it. That's what Kansas docs, that is the shame of Kansas." ' On a Kansas train a certain man was in custody of an ofilcer. . When the conductor came around the officer was absent Tho fellow did not have any fare and the conductor put him off and the train sailed away. This talk about the short grass not being productive is rank stuff. - Norton county has a baby 32 months old that weighs 118 pounds. The name of the child is Mamie Chambers. Assuming that Mamie will keep up her lick and reach her growth at 20 she will weigh 685 pounds. ' J. L. Kise, a Sumner county man, has a bunch of carrier pigeons which he turned loose at Mayfield the other day and started them for Wellington. Five of the eight birds made the trip of nine miles in twelve minutes, or at tho rate of forty-five miles an hour. I The Kansas Creamery Company, which has factories in the northern part of the state, has completed ar rangements for the establishment at Wichita of a large factory. Skimming stations will be located throughout southern Kansas and Oklahoma. In New Moon school district, Finney county, it is impossible to get a school marm who can occupy the place over kix months without getting married. The introduction of tropical plants into Kansas has always been a failure. Mr. and Mrs. Lemon of Eush county have been married ten years and they are atill the only lemons in the house. In Sumner county cyclone cellar are called "fraid holes." It may come out later and probably will, that witnesses are being paid to testify at the Topeka investigation Cows are worth more than gold mines.

The first settlers in Kansas are sturdy crowd. The grim reaper has bent his scyther on many a Kansas pioneer. In Kansas the people used to be for ever assuring each other that "this year" the grasshopper eggs would not hatch out. There is a girl in Dodge City who says that a kiss has 500 vibrations a minute. She evidently doesn't kiss her brother. Fred Funston' in writing to a Law rence friend says that a battle is hell with its halter loose and its tail over tho dashboard. A western Kansas man said the de scription of the prize-fight sounded fa miliar enough except for the omission of the usual "$5 and costs." Kansas always considers the East a good yictim of her jokes. Alfalfa tea is now being advertised as a Kansas product east of the Mississippi river. We are not prepared to say who is the biggest corn raiser is Kansas, but John 15. Rea of Jewell county, who raised 100,000 last year, is no slouch himself. An Augusta boy will be graduated from the High School this year who has attended school for eleven Etraight years and has never been tardy or ab sent a single day. A very ugly old bachelor in a West ern Kansas town was married recently and the local paper said it always be lieved "he was invincible to the charms of the fair sex." The large creamery business in Kan which is attracting so much attention is largely in the hands of the River Brethren, a Shaker religious sect in Dickinson county. There is running through Kansas at the present time a special car carrying physicians who glide from town to town, charge big fees aud starve the local physicians to death. A justice of the peace in Brown county tried to kiss the bride after per forming the marriage ceremony and got slapped in the face. He must have been old and wrinkled and without teeth. Bob Fitzsimmons telegraphed cx Scnator Ingalls denying the published statement thr.t he hud called Mr. In galls a liar. Mr. Fitzsimmons states that he had no interview in relation to any such matter, and that he had nev er had occasion to apply such a term to Mr. Ingalls. The Paiges, a popular price, and pop ular company are at the Crawford Grand, Wichita, this week. They have found favor in all Kansas towns where they have played and propose making this state their field of labor for some time to come. Their singing and danc ing specialties are above the average and worth going to see. A largo' section of the Soldier's Home land at Leavenworth has been inundated by the rise in the river and if the water runs off within the next week tho ground will be unfit for planting this spring. The river at the bridge is still falling slowly. The bridge and all its approaches, dikes, grades and breakwaters have stood the freshet without a bobble and in no time has been in the least danger of damage. The Union Pacific has engineers in the territory going over the proposed line of the llutchinson & Southern railway to coal fields in the Chickasaw country. It is given out that the Un ion Pacific will buy the road and build through from Med ford to Texas at once. A Kansas man who spent nearly all his life on tho frontier says that most of the brave men were killed because they did not draw their revolvers soon enough. He says the cowards always whipped their guns out first The Dunkards of northeastern and southern Kan' .as met in convention on April 13, 14 tnd 15 at Sabetha. The convention comprises one-fourth of the membership in the state and about 150 delegates were in attendance. The improvements on the Vitrified Brick Works at Pittsburg are almost completed. The 107 foot stack is in place, and the works will soon be in operation. There are four or five large contracts to be filled and the works will be run at its full capacity over 70,000 brick being turned out in a day. Miss Dolphin has been re-elected su perintendent of the public schools of Leavenworth. A cycler appeared on the streets of Newton the other day on a big wheel with a little wheel in front The Ness City cornet band is now lo cated in the third story of a building as far away as possible. Probably some one has told that air ship manager to get off the earth. President Fairchild of the State Ag ricultural college has . been succeeded by Professor Will. The air-ship came down at Arkansas City, sailed up to the water tank of the Santa Fe, pulled the lever and took on water. The grays of Treston B. Plumb in the Emporia cemetery is unmarked by anything save the green mound which covers him. A prominent Kansas paper notes that this is the time of year when the Ancient Order of Hen Shooers are call ed to order. Kansas has overworked the word "plug." It means a hat, a stopper, a railroad train, an old horse, a blow, a mutilated coin. The Topeka Retail Grocers associa tion is discussing a clearing house sys tem to be used by Topeka business men of all classes. The "drug stores of Burlington have quit selling whisky and the water sprinkler has begun business sixty days earlier than usual. The truth of the airship matter is that some one is spending his fortune sending up paper balloons or stars ap proaaa the earth and float. The Anthony branch of the Frisco has put on one ear for the renewed run which carries passengers, mail and baggage within the same walls. Dr. Pilcher of Winficld, has on the front porch of his residence a safe in which he keeps his jewelry, precious stones, silverware, and so fourth. A Jewell county man who had work ed out a lecture entitled, "In Libby Prison," has changed it to "A Boy in the Army," and is doing very well. Boys are going bare feet, men are in their shirt sleevs, and women go down town mornings in their Mother Hub bards -signs of spring at Winficld. Judge Gregory of Garden City will go to a sanitarium. A year ago he had measles, which left a malady of some kind that gives him a great deal of trouble. The members of the Newton fire de partment have presented Chief Foltz with a gold-headed cane. This is a more sensible present thau a helmet that weighs a ton. Newton claims to do so much more business than Hutchinson that a mun from the Jatter town on the streets of Newton the other day was absolutely prostrated by the activity. Auditor Morris is complying strictly with the law passed by the last legis lature requiring him to deduct unpaid tuxes from amounts allowed counties for the care of destitute insane. A Chicago professor identifies the air-ship as the moving star Alpha Ore nois. If that is true, some one on Ore nois dropped a half-peeled potato, for one fell from the sky in Atchison. The new Masonic hall in Linn, which takes the place of the one burned a year ago, is completed at a cost, in cluding the furniture, of 81,500. This hall will be dedicated in May, at which Grand Master William M. Shafer of Topeka and Fast Grand Master J. C. Postlethwaite of Jewell City will be present . The Odd Fellows of Iluteuinsou will celebrate the 78th anniversary of the order's existence on April 20. Several hundred guests are expected.

Among tho cities that will be represented are Newton, Wichita, Sterling, Nickerson, Lyons, McPherson, Canton, Inman, Ilalstead, P.urrton, Mt Hope, Haven, Harper, Anthony and Kingman. Reno lodge No. 09 and Myrtle Rebekah lodge No. 28 of llutchinson are arranging for the big event and will furnish their own money and do their own enter taining. The people in the vicinity of Iola are in a bad fix. The ronr of the Palmer gas well in that town tan be heard for ten miles. If a cyclone should ap proach it would drown out the roar of the wind and the people would be without warning. A drug store at Arkansas City was robbed of twelve bottles of wine tho other night, and tho local paper inno cently remarked that suspicion natur ally falls on u, uuniber of small boys who have been on a drunk for several days. The Rock Island has issued an order that all employes in the passenger train service who have not been vacci nated within a comparatively recent time must take the precaution at once on account of the immigrant travel and the attendant danger of catching and spreading the smallpox. The annual conference of the Meth odist, stewards of the Newton district was in session at Newtsn Apiil 15. Each steward gave an estimate of just how much his church would be able to give to home and foreign missions. Barton county farmers are damning the draws. The draws are filled with water and are not the draws that don'i "fill." An Atchison man complains that sa many poor, worthless kin hold down jobs in that town that really meritor ious men have no chance. He says too many high-up men have runty rel atives to suit hint. the corn carnival at Atchison, the appeal festival at Leaven wrth and the Topeka jamboree are all being planned on the largest scale. GIVES LIFE TO DEAD. CLAIMS MADE FOR RECENTLY PATENTED INSTRUMENTS. What Artificial Respiration May o Vital Flam Once EztlognUlicd Will He Relgnlted In These Wonderful Day of Scleutllle Achievement. V O U B T L E S S the most interesting of new Inventions are several Instruments for rewinding the delicate machinery of life after it has run down, or, more literally speaking, for bringing the dead back to life, says a Washington correspondent of the St. Louis Globe Democrat. Heretofore such mechan isms have existed only In fiction or In the visions of those who have craved for earthly life eternal. A French physician has patented such a device In this country. It is to be applied for the purpose of breath ing renewed life into bodies which are liefless, or apparently lifeless. To use the words of the Inventor, it is an aerotherapeutical apparatus. A ves sel into which water Is poured is sur rounded by an air chamber and has fixed in it an upright tube surmounted by a globe. In the center of the tube Is a vacuum gauge. When the proper valve Is turned water In the upper tube moves upward and downward, producing alternate Inhalations and exhalations in another tube leading to the free air. By suitable mouth or nasal pieces the latter tube Is to be attached to the body of the subject. The instrument being attached and put Into operation, the lungs will be filled with air and emptied at alternate intervals, corresponding in regularity with the natural expansion and con traction of the cheBt in normal breath ing. Thus tho blood may be supplied with its necessary oxygen, and unless decomposition has set in life may be kindled anew. Still another Invention of this class Is that of a Brooklyn physician. It Is an air-tight chamber, suitable in size for the accommodation of a man's body. It is connected with an air rarefier and compressor, the controll ing mechanism of which Is worked by a rotary shaft and crank. It is claim ed that the subject inside may be made to breathe when the Interior at mosphere is alternately rarefied and compressed, his lungs, as well as the chamber itself, being filled and then emptied as the valves are kept work ing. Still another invention, that of a Buffalo man, Is a bellows and tube, the latter to be connected with the mouth and nostrils. The tube before reach ing the subject passes through a small stove, which heats the air , to the proper temperature. An odd apparatus which may be In cluded in this category, is a sort of corset, patented by a California man, which while encircling the chest, may be made to automatically compress and let free the muscles of the thorax. which control respiration. The examining board of the life- saving service has been considering the advisability of adopting a resuscitating machine, known as an insufflator, for reviving drowned persons. It in volves an air pump, nasal and mouth pieces, and a hypodermic apparatus. Should the future develop improve ments in the direction toward which these Inventions as well as the theories of reliable medical specialists are pointing we may yet see the day when our friends may be brought back to life after several deaths and when life may begun again by an external rather than an internal force. When this happy day arrives the physician will visit the deathbed, resuscitator in hand, maintaining artificial circulation and respiration, while at the same time repairing or replacing the worn out organs. In these wonderful days of scientific achievement there seems to be no reason why the vital flame, because once extinguished, cannot be reignited to once more put the delicate animal mechanism in motion. Up to this time physicians have ac complished little by attempts at re suscitation, except in rases of cata lepsy, syncope, a few kinds of poison ing, drowning, hanging and other forms of asphyxia and electrocution. The old-fashioned or direct method now generally applied in such cases is to place the patient upon his hack and to compress and expand his chest cav ity by pressure of the hands. Renewed life has been breathed into young chil dren by what is known as the mouth-to-mouth insufflation. The operator places bis mouth to that of the patient, and by keeping up a systematic pro cess of exhalation and inhalation starts the latter's lungs to working again. Physicians now have hopes of resus citating a drowned man after life has been apparently extinguished for an hour. Man appears to be more fortun ate than the dog in this respect. In the course of experiments some time ago to determine this degree of comparison dogs which had been held wholly under water for a minute and a half never recovered and their hearts stopped beating four minutes after breathing had ceased. Tho testimony of persons resuscitated after drowning indicates that such a mode of death is not nearly so painful as one might Imagine. A tickling In the throat Is about the only pain which is usually experienced. . Physicians have recently made ob servations whMo lead to new theories considering tha possibilities of resus citation in eases of death from electric ity. If a person should take a suffi cient dose of nltro-glycerlne or nitrate of amyl just before contact with the eurrent the fatal effect might be coun teracted. Elertrlclano aro yet puzzled to locate the course which an electric current usually takeuon entertlng or coming in contact with the body. There have been cases of resuscitation from death by electricity, which doc tors have previously supposed to bo hopelessly fatal. The New York au thorities are frequently bothered by specialists offering to resuscitate elec trocuted criminals. Dr. Augustine Goelet, a high authority on such sub jects, says that nearly all persons sup posed to be killed by electricity may be resuscitated. The general effect of a severe current upon the body Is a sud den arrest of the muscles which con trol breathing and the beating of the heart. The arrest is caused by excite ment of the corresponding nerve cen ters of the brain. Of course, death will surely occur unless efforts are imme diately made to resuscitate the patient while in this state of sycope. The al ternating electric current, usually re garded to be the most fatal of all, Is found to produce this syncope in ihe majority of cases. DON'T VERSUS DOESN'T. Grammatical Oddities That Urate Vpoa the Ear of Educated Reader. The subject of pronunciation has been up for discussion a good deal of late. The following regarding "don't" and "doesn't" should be of in terest, coming from the best authority, says an exchange: Don't is like drop ping the final g of the present partici ple, a vulgarity of people of culture. Thackeray and Anthony Trollope con stantly place it, along with ain't for "am not," or "Is not," in the mouths of their highly bred characters. The lata prince consort used it. I recollect quoting from memory from his "Life," by Sir T. Martin that, speaking of tha Princess Beatrice as an infant, the prince wrote: "She doesn't like it." Other corruptions are, or were, 'em for "them," Hawyut for "Harriet," chawyet for "chariot," yallow for "yellow," to;i sel for "tassel," Lunnon for "London," Roome for "Rome," goold for "gold," obleege for "oblige." The first duke of Wellington, as I have been told, al ways said obleege. It certainly does grate upon tho ear to hear don't used for "doesn't," and yet we find it used In "Pickwick Papers," In the song which Mr. Wardle sings on Christmas eve at the Manor farm, Dingley Dell: "And love that's too strong why, It don't last long, As many have found to their pain." i In East Anglia they say "you don't ought" and "he didn't ought," which, though true, is slightly ungrammatical. DESTRUCTION OF BIRDS. Their Migration Usually Attended ly Great Loss of Life. The long semi-annual migrations of birds are attended by numberless perils and great loss of life, says the Youth's Companion. A dispatch from Baton Rouge, La., some time ago affords a striking instance. One morning early risers there witnessed a peculiar phe nomenon a shower of dead birds that fell from a clear sky and literally clut tered the streets. There were ducks, catbirds, woodpeckers and many bird of strange plumage, some of them re sembling canaries, but all dead. Ther fell In heaps along the thoroughfares. The most plausible explanation of tha strange windfall, the sender of the dis patch thinks, is that the birds were driven inland by a recent severe storm on the Florida coast. Doubtless they were caught by some sudden change of weather while they were migrating at a great height, perhaps several niilea above the earth. Some idea of the ex tent of the shower may be gatherod from the fact that In one a anue chil dren picked up as many as " 0 birds. The Earthquake Co: t. The recent earthquake sin . k In Eng land has brought about the Invention of the most unique thing in wearing appnrel the earthquake coat. Once enveloped in this extraordinary gar ment, a man may laugh at earthquakes and snap his fingers at volcanic erup tions. The coat reaches from the head to the feet and Is made of the heaviest cloth procurable. It Is really two coats, one over the other. Tho space between them is heavily padded and a hood, with four inches of padding in the crown, goes with it. Instead of buttons there are clasps on the coat, so that it can be fastened in a few seconds. On each side are ten pockets of various shapes and sizes, for the carrying ol provisions. Each pocketjs arranged for certain articles of food and together they will hold enough provisions for several days. The coat is designed for use as a last resort only. The padding is of sufficient thickness to give protec tion from falling objects while the wearer is making his escape. The gar ment need not be specially kept for earthquakes, as It would be equally useful for boiler explosions or crossing crowded thoroughfares. Philadelphia Inquirer. Paper Underclothing In Japan. Paper underclothing is much used in Japan. The garments are cut out of large sheets of finely crisped Japa nese paper, the pieces sewed together and the buttonholes strengthened with calico or linen. The fabric is strong, even when wet, flexible and extremely light A fact to be considered Is that every Jap takes a hot bath at least once a day. His paper clothes are so cheap that new ones can be afforded frequently. HE CURED HIS WIFE. PHYSICIANS FAILED BUT THE HUSBAND SUCCEEDED. From the Capitol, St. John, Kansas. While conversing with a druggist iu St. John, Kansas, the other day, a reporter's attention was attracted by a lyre attached to the door of the drug store. Every open ing of the door caused several balls which were suspended from the top of the instru ment to swing back aud forth, striking the wires of the lyre and producing a very ' pleasing and musical sound. Upon exam ination we perceived that the instrument was simply a novel scheme to advertise Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. We inquired of the druggist if he had much sale for the Pink Pills, and he informed us that they were his leading sellers. We then asked him what his opinion was of their curative qualities. He told us of several cures which had been effected by their use, one in par ticular, that of a prominent farmer's wife, by the name of Humes. Tho scribe bocitnie very much interested and determined to interviow Mr. Humes in regard to the matter. He spoke as follows: '1 desire to state that 1 consider Dr. Wil liams' Pink Pills one of the grandest reme dies ever placed upon the murket. My wife had been troubled for a long time with pa ralysis in ono of her arms. She doctored with several physicians and tried every medicine she could hoar of but obtained no relief whatevor, I spent a great deal of money in an endeavor to cure her, but it seemed like a vain effort. At last an old gentleman who had used Dr. Williams' Pink Pills with groat benefit, told me what they had done for hhn. I purchased a box, determined to test their merits. "My wife began using them, and to my surprise, as well as her '8, she commenced improving in health wouderfully, and at this time is perfectly cured. I have used them since myself for catarrh and found I obtained great relief. They are in my esti mation one of the best medicines manu factured, and I am willing at all times to recommend them to all who are ailing, for I truthfully believe they will do all that i promised for thorn." Mr. Humes is well known throughout Stafford County, Kansas, and his statement can bo relied upon. Dr. Williams' Pink Pillscontain, in a con densed form, oil tho elements necessary to give new life and richness to the blood and restore shattered nerves. They ae also a specific for troubles peculiar to femalcs.such as suppressions, irregularities and all forms of weakness. They build up tho blood, and restore the glow of health to pale and sallow checks. In men they effect a radical cure in all cases arising from mental worry over work or excesses of whatever nature. Pink Pills are sold In boxes (novor in loose bulk) at SO cents a box or six boxes for $2.50, and may be had of all druggists, or direct by mail from Dr. Williams' Medicine Company, Schenectady, N. Y.
