Jllli Si Actions of a Drunken Farmer. A promirn nt farmer and politician ofGuelph township, white i'i town Thursday became drunk, and late n a' night hI tempted to enter the home O' Dr. J U. Franklin on South C street. He tlrst app-ated at Frank lin's home about 3:30 o'clock and tried to enter the rear door. Dr. Franklin was out of town, and Mrs. Franklin, awakened by the noise at the door, got up and inquired who was there. The man made no response and sin ordered him to pet off the premises. She then awakened her son Weob. who went to the door as the fellow was leaving. The farmer then went to another house a few doors oui h of Franklin's home and across the street, and tried to get in. He failed, and ret urn, ug to the Franklin home, tried to open the front dour. It wa locked and he went to the kitchen door and tried to open it. By this time VVeoh Franklin tu1 been around the second time, and he went to i lie kitchen don and opened it. The man was stand ing near the edge of the porch. Webb picked up a chair and struck him. knocking him off the porch. The fellow then left tlie premises. Friday morning he came Into Lichtenberger's cafe, still drunk, aod ordered his breakfast. He was recognized and the matter was later reported to Oitj Marshal Shawver. Mr. Sliawver at tempted to find him, hut he had gone home. Raised a Notch. Fridiywas the last d iy of tin business year by which the post office department adjusts the salaries of postmasters. The business (if the local office clearly entitles Wellington to a place in the list of second class offices. This does not mean that there will be an immediate restora tion of the mail carrier service in Wellington, but if the iucrease keep up for another year the carriers will be restored soon after April, 1900. When the mail carrier service was taken off several years ago, Welling ton was placed in the list of third class i fflces. For t wo or three yetrs, the business of the office has been steadily increasing, until there is no question that the past year's showing will place Wellington within the linn's of second class i fflces. Post master Ferguson is much gratifl. d a the amount of business done, and expresses much confidence that an Other year will see Wellington with her mail carrier seivicf restored. The raising of the office o second class increases the post master's salaty , to about 32 I0J and allows him an extra am int fur cierk hire. School of Instruction. The Ma-otiic school ot instruction for this district opened in A F. & A M. hall yesterday, under the direc liou of Geo. Pond of Fort Scott, oneof the three custodians of the state The Wellington district incudes the two southern tiers of couuiies. The school will continue all week, and any out of town visitjrs are ex pected. Mr. Pond arrived in the city Sunday ninht. Tom Gorman Missing. Tom Gorman, the Guelph township , farmer and politician, is missing and his friends have instituted a search for him. Gorman was in town several days last week and was drunk all the time. Thursday night while crazed with liquor, he tried to enter the home of Dr. J. H. Franklin in the Secood ward, but was driven away. : tfrlday evening City Marshal Shawver Modern Woods. The Moder.

Dai y Journal, Saturday. The Wellington grain men are very emphatic in their exj resston of diap proval of the appointment of J. C. F. Borne of Suatti Haven as grain in peetttf for this territory. They say Horne is incompetent, end that his app nut qient will result io the ruin of Wellington as a grain center. Wei Huston uow occupies second place in he grain shipping centers of the -tate. Horne is at present in Kansas City, where the grain men claim he has t ne 10 iearn the trade. Tbey ridi cule t he idr i nf a niiii learning to be I gum inspector in a few weeks. When H irue received the appoint ment he came in Wellington with a II quest from State Grain Inspector McKenzie tint be b allowed 10 work with tlie preseH inspector, W. F. Thompson, for a few weeks, until he could catch onto the business. Thompson's term of office does not expire until July, and when it be came evident to him that be was to be pushed out of office unceremoni ously he did not willingly consent to the state grain inspector's request McKenzie then requested Home to come to Kansas City and work io the elevators for a few weeks, when be would be qualified to take hold of the job at Wellington. Aside fromjthe politic mixed up in the appointment, the grain men are dissatisfied with the new inspector because of the likelihood that Welllni ton will lose its prestige as a grain sbipplng point, and their business Interests will suffer correspondingly. The position of grain inspector is one of more importance than the public generally supposes. Wellington's standing as a grain shipping point was gained through the work of thor oughly competent inspectors. We are at present the shipping center of fully two-thirds of the state. With an incompetent inspector, whose uradingsof wheat prove unsatisfactory to the shippers or to the elevator owners and grain men here, only one thing will result: the grain will he shipped to Wichita, Winfleld, Ar kansas City or some other point where t he inspections prove more satisfac tory to all parties concerned in the transaction. It is difficult for an ex pert inspector to grade wheat satis lactorily to all parties concerned, and when one is found who ive good satisfaction be becomes known to ths shippers, aud brings business tt the towu where he is located. It is thus easily seen why a change in grain inspectors can injureor benefita town. The grain men here had used their ii flueuce in every way to have W. F. Thompson reappointed to the place, out they failed. Thompson's politics is distasteful to the grain men, but tiiey argue that politics should cut no figure in the business interests of the town. The outcome of the muddle will probably be that the grain men will hire an Inspectoral theirown expense, rather than let their own business and the interests of the city suffer. Tiiey say they cannot affo'd to buy grain and run the risk of losing money through it being graded elsewhere at variance with itsgradiu; hers. Ab solutely accurate and reliable grading is necessay or whtat cannot be bought and sold at close margins. The present inspector's gradings of grain were seldom changed by grad ing elsowhsre, which is responsible for Wellington's prestige as a grain shipping point aud the efforts of the local grain dealeri- to have him re taiutd in office. The Pharos Club Meeting. The Pharos club was organized last March with a charter membership of six, and uow, one year later, t has twenty-two members in good stand ing. The club was limited at first to twelve numbers, but removed the limit last December, and now it is unlimited as to numbers. Those de sirous of joining the society may make application accordingly to the secre tary at any time. It is a literary club, and took up the study of Ameri can literature at its organization. It is now reviewing that work, with the inteution of taking up English liter ature next October. The meeting last week at Mrs. BloomV was well attended, and in cluded an analytical study of "Am ram's Wooing,"oneof Bayard Taylor's finest lyrics. lu comparing Oriental and Occi dental styles of lovemaking, the club decided that the former, whose ac knowledgments were made solely through the "windows of the soul," without any preliminary skirmishing with the unreliable tongue, while tha suitor made his formal declaration by sending an arrow barbed with jas mines, roses, moooflowers, etc., flying through through the air to alight at ths feet of the maiden, when she signifies her acceptance with another floral symbol, was a great improve ment over anything in that line that had ever come within our experience or observation. Just think of Its poetry, flowers, spicy Arabian air, and above all, that race upon the noble Arab steed! Passing on to J. G. Holland, with his points of biographical interest, bis struggles aod perserverance to the culmination of his genius in his popu lar poems, "Katberloa" and "Bitter Sweet," Mrs. J. M. tteady made an interesting review of the latter poem, which was discussed by the club in a very spirited manner. If Holland, from his observation in the spirit world, could have heard that discus sion and the ruthless airing of his pet theologies, every hair on bis head (should he have any left) would have assumed the perpendicular in bootless indignation. All the same, the club "does not like David." The club meets April 14th with Mrs. Greene Dowis. An Excellent Combination. The pleasant method and beneficial effect of the well known remedy, Stbup of Figs, manufactured by the California Fio 8yrop Co., illustrate the value of obtaining the liquid laxa tive principles of plants known to be medicinally laxative and presenting them in the form most refreshing to the taste and acceptable to the system. It is the one perfect strengthening laxa tive, cleansin? the STStess effectually, dispelling colds, headaches and fevers gently yet promptly and enabling one to overcome habitual constipation per manently. Its perfect freedom from every objectionable quality and sub stance, and its acting on the kidnevs, liver and bowels, without weakening or irritating them, make it the ideal laxative. In the process of manufacturing figs are used, as they are pleasant to the taste, but the medicinal qualities of the remedy are obtained from senna and other aromatic plants, by a method known to the California Fio Syrup Co. only. In order to get its beneficial effects and to avoid imitations, please remember the full name of the Company printed on the front of every package. CALIFORNIA FIG SYRUP CO. SAX FRANCISCO. GAL.

When the plans are complete tbey will be submitted to tbe Santa Fe officials for approval, and if accepted, tbe yards will probably be enlarged Ui is summer not later thao fall. The Santa Fe has decided that the facilities at this point for unloading and feeding cattle in transit must be enlarged. This Is made necessary by the increase in shipments over the Panhandle line, resulting from the opening of the Pecos Talley ft North eastern road. Wichita is making an effort to become the unloading point for southern Kansas, but ibe Is handi capped by the fact that the Santa Fe docs not own the cattle yards in Wichita, and the additional fact that it costs the company $3 for every switch thrown in sidetracking for tbe yards there. The enlargement of the yards here will necessitate an expenditure of a handsome sum, and will give perman ent employment to three or four men. The Asylum Location. Tbe asylum location committee of the Commercial club, composed of Sumner Wbltson, C. F. Martin, C. J. Humphrey, John T.Stewart and W. A. Reno, held a meeting this morning aod considered the matter of a loca tion for tbe proposed insane asylum. A section of land will be required for tbe asylum. Options will be secured on a section about a mile north of town between tbe Rock Island aod Saota Fe railroad tracks, another section east of the cemetery at the junction of the Santa Fe aud Southern Kansas, a section south of town between Slate creek and tbe Treft hill, and a section west of town south of tbe Clay farm. Either of these sections will make an excellent site for an insane asylum. The greatest objection to the sitea north and east of town is tbe question of water. But tbe Commercial club committee will merely secure options on the sites, for the information of the legislative committee, and should the asylum be located bere, the site will be chosen later. Workmen have been engaged on S. P. Kramer's resideoce aod premises all winter whenever tbe weather would permit. Many improvement! have been made tobe property. Cement sidewalks are now being laid, and tbe property will soon be one of tbe best improved io the city. S. C. Nelson, W. H. Ramey aod Fred Galli bave been appointed ap praisers of the personal property of the late W. H. Jordan.
