a year formerly gi\en It by the board.
While the board realizes that the
home is a benevolent Institution do
ing great good, and, therefore, is
worthy of all possible financial aid, It
feels that as a board of supervisors
It has not the right to give the coun
ty's money to charity, and therefore
It should pay the home only for tho
care of such cases as are strictly
county cases.

The last chapter in one of the most
remarkable death mysteries that Iowa
has ever known, was finished Sunday
when the remains of Miss Emilyn
Miriam Kester were laid to rest in Oak
View cemetery in Albia.
The funeral service was held at 3
o'clock, at the Christian church. Rev.
Allison of Albia preached the funeral
sermon. Hundreds of friends and
relatives crowded the church and ob
served the services at the cemetery.
The testimonial to the memory of the
departed was a remarkable one, and
friends from Ottumwa, Chicago, Oska
loosa and St. Paul joining with the
relatives in the last rites.
The mystery in this young woman's
death is profound. Motive after mo
tive for self destruction has been
eliminated, confirming in the minds of
Nairobi, British East Africa, July S —.
Colonel Roosevelt heard his prowess as
a lion killer told in song and sketch
at the entertainment given on Satur
day night by the "Nairobi Follies,"
which Mr. Roosevelt and his son, Ker
mit, attended as the guests of his ex
cellency, Sir F. J. Jackson, C. G„ C. M.
G., acting Governor, as an evening's
diversion after dining at Government
House. The topical songs dealing with
Mr. Roosevelt were a feature of the
occasion, and at each allusion: to him
self Colonel Roosevelt's laugh rang out
above the nnplause and laughter of the
rest of the audience.
Lion Hunting Prowess.
The song describing Colonel Roose
velt's lion hunting was suns by Miss
Shooter in the course of a sketch en
titled, "A Tale of the Chase." It ran as
"Felis Leo."
A lion lurked in his lonely, lair,
As African lions do,
For he liked to be where he could get
a share
Of a nice little buck with a slice of
In our wonderful nature zoo
His large inside he nightly fed with
zebra or harte-beest instci.
"There isn't a scrap of doubt," said he,
"This diet's exceedingly good for me,
For I grow fat, fat, fatter
AA'hat on earth does it mat, mat, mat
If the way that I creep on the beasts
in their sleep
Makes the pcor things scat, scat, scat

those who have studied the afTair

Her family relations were beautiful,
her engagement had the unqualified
approval'of her fiance's father, and her
business affairs, offer not the slightest
foundation for the motive.
Not a scrap of paper was left to
show premeditation. But there does
remain one single condition of health
that physicians pronounce the most
logical explanation of it all, namely
brain racking headaches. Such an
illness had overtaken Miss Kester the
day before her death and its effect on
her nervous system must have been
terrible That sufferers from such in
tense headaches have given way
mentally is a matter of record, and is
the only plausible solution.
W. T. Kester of Chicago was in Ot
tumwa today, and will wind up the
small financial affairs of his sister.
He hunted game in the moonshine
With never a thought of harm,
But he got quite a fright when there

(British East Africa,) recounting some
of Mr. Roosevelt's experiences in the
colony follows.
Experiences in B. E. A.
(With apologies to Kipling.)
At the port of Kilindinl,
Teddy, armed to the teeth with a
knife and a sheath,
And a rifle beneath his arm.
The Colonel plugged him with a
AA'hile Kermit took his photograph
Said he "Those Wall street boys
would cry
If they knew how near I'd been to die
Oh, this country's bull, bull, bully.
I've enjoyed it full, full, fully,
For it euchers the best they can show
in the AVest
That's so wild and wool, wool, woolly."
Looking eastward cros the main,
We welcomed Teddy Roosevelt,
As we hope to do again.
And the rain it fell in torrents,
And the world seemed far from
But we did our best to greet him in
OUR way in B. E. A.
He traveled up the railway,
And he said the sights were
And he also said "THAT'S BULLY."
As we well can understand
For the game is here in thousands,
And it's here we'd have him stay,
Just to see uiraffes and rhinos
Near the rail in *B. E. A.
We heard of hand-fed lions,
And of rhinos on the chain
How he bravely faced all dangers,
And deadly beasts has slain
Still we've nothing heard BUT
That's a truth we must confess
We have no truthful story, for
He shut out all the press.
Yes. he shut out all the press.
And he left them there to guess
They raved and growled and grum
They were lef* in such a mess.
)t that's a'.l passed and done with,
For they were not far away.
And their news is scattered broad
Over all the world today
Stil, he sent in news on Tuesday.
It is nice to be polite.
But the New York papers had It
On the previous Sunday night.
Oh. it really was a frost.
And one it to his cost.
