Last week three men at Ottawa bare ly escaped death bv leapinc from a hand car which came around the curve suddenly. The car was thrown high in the air and mashed to pieces. Trego county has reduced its mort gage indebtedness over $35,000. Coun ty treasury is receiving five times as much money as last year and farmers are rapidly paying off their debts. The stockholders of the Elmdale bank do not intend to be discouraged because the bank was robbed a few weeks ago. The capital stock will be doubled and a nice stone building erected this fall. As to corn the prospects of a month ago have diminished until in several counties the crop has been virtually destroyed, while in a number of others it has been greatly injured by the in tense heat and lack of sufficient rain fail. On the whole, however, a very fair orcp will be raised, as in a number of counties the yield will be considera. bly in excess of last year. The reports further show that in some counties the price of corn has advanced over that of last year. This may be accounted for from the fact that the farmers of Kan sas, especially in the western part of the state, have gone very largely into the business of feeding cattle, being attracted by the good prices that now prevail. Word has been received from the 'Mennonites who left Marion county for Texas some time since. The story says: "The first party of these colon ists, numbering 73 persons, passed through Dallas a week ago traveling overland in "prairie schooners," with good outfits of farm and household goods and live stock. Saturday while drivincr throueh Robertson county, 200 miles south of Dallas, were stopped by armed men, who threatened them with bodily harm and destruction of their property if they did not turn back, The leader of the Robertson county ob jectors on horseback drew a pistol and, seizing the unarmed Mennonite leader, also on horseback, by the collar, rode at a gollop, pulling him after him, and threatening to kill him if he resisted. The Mennonite's clothing was so badly torn that he was nearly naked when released. He and his followers go un armed, and are opposed to fighting, so the party did as ordered and turned back out of Robertson count'. The leader, whose name is Rev. Henry Berthold desires to say that he does not regard this treatment as charac teristic of Texans; that with the ex ception of the Robertson county inci dent, the most hospitable welcome and treatment have been accorded them across the state. He says another par ty of 43 are traveling ten days behind them, and he will notify them and all other colonists to avoid the Robertson county trail. Jle says the plans of the colonists will not be changed because of this one rough experience, but that the full colony plan will be carried out The hog cholera which has been raging in portions of Kansas for the past thirty days, is abating. Many farmers have suffered heavy losses by this epidemic, and it has made hogs very scarce in the localities where it prevailed. No wonder the people of the whole east are today talking Kansas and singing her praises. The total estima ted value of the products of Kansas this year is 8176,366,350, which is $10, 000,000 in excess of valuation in any former year. A Butler county farmer went to the bank and told the cashier that he wanted to pay off a 81500 mortgage on bis farm.. The cashier looked up the mortgage and finding that it was drawing 9 per cent interest, and was not due till next February, he told the farmer that it would have to run to that date. The farmer laid the 81500 on the counter, pulled out a bulldog revolver, laid it beside the money, and said he was going to pay that mort gage. The cashier delivered up the document and took the money. Since the Hummel & Hamilton cir cus was in Pittsburg, a week ago, it has been discovered by the business men that there is a good deal of coun terfeit coin afloat, and its resemblance to the genuine is good. narry Sales, of Jvorcatur, Decatur county, has a 505 pound alfalfa fed pig, 11 months old, which he call a "Kansas alfalfa pig," and which took a prize at the Iowa fair, where the car was exhibited. Many Iowans and lllinoisans declared that they would go to Kansas. A bulldog mangled a little girl at Wicr City a few days ago. A bum reproduction of the Corbett. Fitzsimmons fight was egged by a Gar nett audience. The Santa Fe railroad has already paid out in the neighborhood of 833, 000 for the Emporia wreck. The first annual reunion of Kentuck ians at Wellington was a pleasant gathering and a social success. Topeka has secured the next meet ing of the National Creamery associa tion, which is to be held next Febru ary. Leavenworth's reunion was a grand success, hverybody knew it would be. Leavenworth is a great and good town. Under the new ballot law Jefferson county will get its ballots printed for 95 cents per hundred. It cost 81.80 two years ago. The temperance people of Kansas ask all Christians in the state to ob serve the third Sunday in October as temperanoe day. The Topeka Journal says that 137 peoplo have been drowned in the Kan sas river at or near Topeka since the town was founded in 1S5-4. Kansc.s will never hang anybody. Kansas used to threaten to string Jef fecson Davis up on a sour apple tree, but even that song is forgotten. It is remarkable now many intelli gent nieu make mistakes in voting. This year you must put your mark in the square to the right of the candi date's name. Emporia is the champion guying town of Kansas. A poor short grass young man recently mistook macar oons for ginger snaps in that town and he is in danger of being run out Atchison is p. pretty old fashioned town, notwithstanding its corn carni val and its up to date politicians. A bridal party leaving there the other day was covered by showers of rice. Atchison's corn carnival is more fa mous than any other Kansas event of the year. The eastern high-grade pub lications are illustrating it, and many of them writing up her wonderful re sources. A well known Kansas breeder of hogs recently said that he never suf fered loss from socalled hog cholera or other swine diseases. lie also said that he gave the hogs all the fresh water they wanted to drink and never allowed a wallow on his farm. James Russell, a private grain in1 spector of Kansas City, Mo., was ar rested recently charged with inspect ing grain on Kansas territory contrary to the Kansas State grain inspection law. The arrest is the first legal ac tion taken in the ficht that is being made on the Kansas State inspection, Russell, it is alleged, has been going into the railway yards at Kansas City Kans., and Argentine and making in spections without being regularly ap pointed. Judge Simons of the district court at Leavenworth has decided that the new text book law does not abrogate exist ing contracts for text books because it does not apply to them. Nearly every district in the state has contracts and some are observing the law and some are not All other district courts that have ruled on the question have found that the law does not effect existing contracts, and now the boards will not have a settled policy until the supreme court decides the point. It is Judge Simons' opinion, however, that there is no law authorizing district or city school boards to enter into contract since the repeal of the old law and the enactment of the county uniformity law of 1895, and that, therefore all ex isting contracts may be assailed. A farmer was in Wellington a few days ago drunk and dressed up with 81,600 in his jeans. An officer was de tailed to watch him until he left town. Isaac Augusta, a half breed Potta watomie Indian attending school at the Haskell Institute at Lawrence, while in Kansas City went to a rough house and while there exhibited 810 in silver. That settled it He was fol lowed, knocked down and robbed by four negroes. They don't teach every thing at the Haskell. Some important lessons are taught outside. Stick to your land. Hang on to your cattle. Take a fresh grip on hope pnd a little tighter clutch on faith. He that sticks' to the saddle will soon have an opportunity to lasso prosperity and brand it as his own. A handsome young fellow has been victimizing gushing unsophisticated milliners in southeast Kansas and northwest Arkansas by selling goods by sample at half the usual cost, re ceiving cash and giving receipts. He was finally arrested at Bentonvile, Ark., and sent up for three years. Miss Eva Livermore of Smith county will depart this week for India to save the souls of the heathens. Why she should do this with the Dorth bottoms at Galena unregenerated, is strange indeed. What have become of the English sparrows tliat have been such a nuis ance around Win field all summer is a question that many are trying to solve. The thousands of little pests disappear ed completely this week in a body. Heretofore they have remained in win tar as well as summer. tha A man named Johnson was fined 851 in Ottawa for keeping u house of ill re pute.

A report from Independence says A well developed plan of the gang o' outlaws said to be headed by Al Jen nings to make a raid upon the towr and rob the banks and business housei has been unearthed. This gang has iti rendezvous iu the Huston mountains southwest of here, and it is claimed ii had preparations all made about tv$ weeks ago to make a raid upon thu city. They had sent two of their num ber up here to reconnoiter, and afte remaining here several days and taking in the situation they returned and re ported that a gang of eight or nin men could enter the town, hold up and rob the banks and business houses and escape with the booty with compara tive safety. Everything had been got ten in readiness, but the day before the time to leave one of their number got on a drunk and gave away part ol their plan.
