Ti e subject for to night Is "Who Changed the Sabbath?" That tbe religious world today is keeping a diffnt day from the ancient sabbath, which was the sev enth day of the week, is admitted by all. Hence, the question that has perplexed the minus of rouny, ''When was the sabbath changed?'' "When, why. :indby whn authority did tbe people cease to observe the seventh day, and take np the observance r.f the first day of e week?" These questious will b considered from a bib'e and historical standpoint. Every text of scripture bearing upon the subject will be re (i. A cordial Invi tation Is extennpd to all. Elder H F.

Grain Shipments Qualified. The Santa Fe has given notice that hereafter It cau not accept shippers' orders on grain for delivery to con necting lines except as subject to tbe ability or tbe Santa Fe to effect such deliveries, and with due regard fo the protection of its equipment. This virtually makes shippers' or ders for grain deliveries subject to the wishes of tbe Saou Fe In tbe matter and broadens the scope of the road's ruling far beyond thatoriginally made, which affected only deliveries to the Alton, Rock Island and Burlington, the latter of which roads was after wards excepted from the effect of the ruling. Wm. YanCureo of Milan, was in tbe city today. He stated that he in tended entering his wheat la the wheat exhibit at tbe Jubilee, but un derstood that be must either give up an entrance fee or spend three or four dollars decorating his wagon for tbe flower parade before he would be per mitted to take part in tbe wheat ex hibit. If Wellington can catch tbe fellow wha is telling these lies about the J ubiiee. he will be turned over to John Haughey and kicked to death. It doesn't cost a cent to enter any kind of contest at the Jubilee. ho one is compelled to take part in any parade at any time, reopie can do as they please about that. If they don't want to enter a parade, they can stay out. If t hey want to enter any of tbe exhibits or cootests, It Is not so much as necessary to notify anybody. Just haui In your wheat and back the wagon up to the curbstone and the Jubilee committee will consider the wheat "entered" ia tbe exhibit. All wheat on tbe streets during Jubilee week will be considered as on ex hibition, and the awarding committee will examine it. it is tbe same way with all other exhibits. Wellington is not trying to make a single dollar out of the Jubilee. On the contrary, she expects to spend 12.500 or $3,000. Tbe slap given the Jubilee by tbe Oxford Register recently was unde served. Wellington Is not trying to "work" the outside towns into pay ing the Jubilee expenses through the queen voting cod test. Every cent of money raised through the voting coo test will be used to buy a dress for tbe Jubilee queen. Wellington could buy a 120 or $30 dress for the queen that would be perfectly satisfactory, but a scheme to get a very expensive dress and raise the money through a voting contest was thought of and put In Deration. It was fully ex plained at the time and no objection to It was anticipated from any quar ter. To say that Wellington hopes to pay the Jubilee expenses by this means, Is ridiculous.

Johnson, who was accused of embezzlement to the extern of $112 from Joseph Hag lexe, at 003 East Twelfth street, in this city, bad an experience that would make good reading In a yellow back novel, says Sunday's Kansas City Journal. Tbe officer figured la a cross country race with his prisoner In bis endeavor to elude a constable who had a writ of habeas corpus with which be was intenriing to take the prisoner away from "the Intrepid de tective," but Dwyer outwitted the constable and the attorney who had the writ, and landed bis prisoner across the line into Kansas at Cald well, and then laughed In tbe face of tbe pursuers. About three weeks ago Dwyer was sent to Medford after Johnson, who was beta? held at that place, by tbe time the Kansas City officer arrived, there had been a writ of habeas cor pus obtained at Medford, and Dwyer was unable to get bis man. Fleepnt mote t han a week trying to get John son, and finally placed the matter in the bands of an attorney to devise ways and means to get the prisoner, and returned to Kansas City Thurs day night. He received word from the attorney that the writ of habeas corpus bad been denied and that Johnson could be taken, aud he at once hastened to Medford to get bim. In the meantime Johnson and his attorney, named Moody, bad left Med ford for Enid, to get another writ. Dwyer happened to meet them on the train at Pond Creek, O.T., and forth with took his prisoner in charge. He learned that there would be no train out of Pond Creek for seven hours, and had to wait. Moody, the attor ney, devised a scheme by which he thought- to yet save bis man frotu coming to Kansas Citv, and getting Into a buggy started to Enid for the writ, tbe service of which be Intend ed to accomplish over the telephone, a thing tbat is possible in that part of the country. He was no sooner out of sight than Dwyer bundled bis prisoner loto a buggy and started for Caldwell, thirty miles away, In tbe hope of get ting bi man over tbe line before tbe artorney could accomplish tbe service of tbe writ As soon as tbe attorney obtained tbe writ be commenced to make tbe telephone hot connecting all the small in.ni tn vhirh Dwver and his auarrv would be obliged to go, trying to get in touch with the two men. But Dwyer was too "foxy," and he avoided all tbe small towns by driving around them, a proceeding which took up much of his time. Finally Mood 7 got In touch with Constably Drew Ryan of Medfnrd, who started in close pur suit after Dwyer and Johnson. Tbe ranm via thpn fin in dead earnest. The horses were driven to their ut most At the end of the race Dwjer sn his nriannpr nnlled into Caldfell Jnsl five minutes ahead of Constable Ryan, and got on cis train, tie went nn tn RansfiA Citv and landed bis pris oner at tbe station, much to the sat isfaction of tbe officer bimseir ana to the chagrin of tbe prisoner. 1 Death of Fred M.
