PACIFIC GROVE. Dec. 31.— Thla, the
last day of the nineteenth century, was
a busy day for the college men assem
bled in Pacific Grove.
The first session of the convention was
the morning meeting of the missionary
Institute, which Is under the direction of
George W. Leavitt-of New York, travel-
Ing secretary' of the Student Volunteer
movement In North America. Mr. Leavltt
spent an hour in discussing plans and
methods for carrying on effective mission
ary work In colleges., At' 9 . o'clock the
two dally Bible classes were conducted by
E. T.-Colton of New York and C. V. Hlb
bard of Chicago. Mr. Colton"s talk dealt
chlefiy with the question of personal work
in the futherance of Bible study among
college men, and Mr. Hlbbard spoke of
the way of carrying on Bible classes in
college associations. Both classes were
well attended.
At 10 o'clock the usual platform address
was delivered by Dr. Charles S. Nash of
the Pacific Theological Seminary of Oak
land,'his topic being the "Supremacy of a.
Life , of Service." The mst hour of the
morning was occupied by Chairman , Col
ton with a talkto'the conference upon
"Work for New Students." - : irHWCTfflBhrf
The first baseball tournament -was held
this afternoon at the City, Baseball Park,
the players being divided according to
classes. The nine composed of the class
of '04 men, captained by Lam of the Uni
versity of the Pacific, played the class of
'03,' which McDonald of the University -of

Theilast exercise of the day. was the
evening v "Life Work * Conference," which
was addressed by. Mr. Col ton. ; The sub
ject presented to-night was the "Sacred
ness of Secular Things," and the leading
point brought out' was mat a man need
not choose a religious calling | in ¦ order I to
Berve God, but, that If every man selected
that career for .which he was. most suited
and -felt that- he was lir^ It by the will of
God.- he was furthering- the- kingdom' of

Actor Frank Hodge Begins an Action
Emmington was awaiting trial for an
attempt to murder State Prison Guard
Samuel Randolph, whom he shot at Point
San Quentin last month. While confined
In the penitentiary he conceived a hatred
of Randolph, and after his discharge he
returned to the Point and waited for Ran
dolph to come from the prison for his
mall. He attacked Randolph and fired
upon him. inilicting a severe flesh wound.
The desperate man took to the hills and
eluded his pursuers until midnight, when
he was captured by Sheriff Taylor on the
ridge back of this city.
Emmlngton's escape to-day was due to
a violation of Sheriff Taylors Injunctions
to his deputies never to allow the man
out of the steel tank without a guard be
ing present to -watch him. This afternoon
E B.-Martlnelll called to see Emmington.
and Deputy Sheriff Lucas let him out of
the tank. When Martlnelli departed the
prisoner asked for and was allowed to
take a bath. When Lucas returned at
supper time Emmington hid behind the
door and escaped. Sheriff Taylor went
to San Francisco In the afternoon and did
not: learn of the escape until his return,
about one hour afterward.
Several posses are searching: for the «
convict. It Is reported that he was seen
going toward Point San Pedro. His cap
ture Is almost certain, as his face has a
large scar, which will easily lead to his
detection. ¦ _ -
SAN RAFAEL. Dec. 31.— J. Emmington,
an ex-convict, escaped from the County
Jail here this afternoon at 4 o'clock and
Is still at large. lie got away while Dep
uty'Sheriff John Lucas was feeding the
prisoners, hiding behind the door in the
main corridor until Lucas had passed in
and then walking out.

Over 300 head of pure bred -and high
grade cattle have been entered for the
exhibition. This stock is from Missouri,
Illinois, Kansas, Colorado, Iowa, Nebras
ka and Utah. Most of it will be offered
for sale at the close of the show and it
will therefore attract considerable atten
tion from the breeders of this and ad-
Joining States.
The mall of the national association as
well as the general committee in this city
Is daily burdened with letters containing
the same information. All of them ask:
"Will the Southern breeders be at your
meeting" If they are coming up, we will
be there to talk business and make con
tracts for this year."
J. M. Boardman, ore of the leading cat
tlemen of Montana. In a recent conver
sation said: "Our State has not over 43
per cent of the cattle on the range that
ft should have. The percentage has been
growing less for two or three years past,
and our grasses are going to waste be
cause of lack of stock to" eat it. We have
held oft buying because we thought South
ern prices too high, but as present Indi
cations are that they will be maintained
for some years to come, I believe the
feeling to stock up again Is becoming gen
eral among- our people. If we cannot
make contracts for steers at Salt Lake In
January we will be compelled to go to
New Mexico, Arizona, Oklahoma and
Texas and pick them up as we can."
The demand for steers this year will
be greater than heretofore for several rea
son?. The Asiatic orders at the Pacific
Coast markets during the last twelve
months have been so 'great that the terri
tory usually depended upon to supply
them has been completely denuded of all
desirable cattle, and. the railroads to-day
are called upon to carry stork to these

demands made upon the northern and

ket* have beeiT equally as pressing, with
the result, as one Montana man expressed
it. that "there are no cattle in our coun
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah. Dec. 31.—
Heretofore the annual convention of the
National Livestock Association has been
the occasion of a vast amount of trading
between the range men of the North and
the breeders from the Southern States.
Salt Lake City, during the week begin

previous records as a market for young
Southern steers, and it will be no great

amounting to $2,500,000 will be signed up

VANCOUVER, Dec. 3L— The Harrison,
Hot Springs mail nage was held up at
1:30 o'clock this aiternoon by three
masked highwaymen. The state was
passing througti a belt of woods five miles
from Affassiz Static n. on the line of the
Canadian Pacific Railway, about sixty
miles from Vancouver, when a tall man
holding' a rifle sten>ed from the bushes
aad seized the horses' bridles. At the
cunt moment two other men presented a
rifle from either side, covering the driver
and the nine passer gerb within the coach.
The latter were rr-ostly travelers from
i Vancouver and coast cities going into
Harrison, a village of 500 people and fa
mous baths. One of the passengers was
a woman.
All held up their nanfis and they were
then requested to climb out and line up
for examination. One of the robbera
searched their p^cketb. obtaining money
and valuables worth $500 or $6C0.
A consignment of Government timber
dues of t'Md was supposed to be on the
coach, but It had in r eallty been shipped
by another route. Five mail pouches
were cut open and their contents exam
ined. A Dominion express package, which
contained several thousands' worth of pa
per but little actual ca*h, was taken. The
robbers then allowed the men to resume
their places and ordered the driver to
hurry forward.
The woman, who evidently was poor,
had only 65 cents, and the tallest robber
cave the money back to her, saying that
he could not take so small an amount for
New Year's. Ke took a $5 piece that he
had just extracted from another man's
pocket and handed It to her.
This Is the second time in a year and a
iialf that this stagro has been held up in
the same spot. On the last occasion a
comparatively small haul was made by
a lone highwayman. The provincial po
lice are making every effort to locate the

"I have used • Swamp-Root for years
•whenever I was troubled with my kld-
neys, with constipation, or whenever I
felt the need of something to tone and
trace me up. This has given me such re-
lief that I do not find it necessary to take
medicine regularly now, as an occasional
dose of Swamp-Root keeps me In shape
for my work— that of head cutter In the
Clothing Company of Rath & Jean. I am
pleased to give a testimonial for your
splendid medicine, and I cannot say
enough for what it has done for me. I
gratefully recommend It to any one need-
Ing a thoroughly reliable remedy." Yours

Weak and unhealthy kidneys are responsible for much sickness
and suffering, therefore, when through neglect or other causes,
kidney trouble is permitted to continue* fatal results are sure
to follow.
It used to be considered that only urinary and bladder troubles
were to be traced to the kidneys* but now modern science proves
that nearly all diseases have their beginning in the disorder of
these most important organs.
Your other organs may need attention — but your kidneys most,
because they do most and need attention first.
If you arc sick or "feel badly," begin taking Dr. Kilmer's
Swamp-Root* the great kidney* liver and bladder remedy* because
as soon as your kidneys are well they will help all the other organs
to health. A trial will convince any one.
