Both the mayor and the president of the
club received notice from A. P. Simmons.
Attorney General Cunningham's chief
clerk and representative, that the state
would not permit the " boxlnc contests"
booked for last nisht.
Mr. Simmons received word from the
club that Jegal measures would not be
necessary to prevent the content, as it
would not take place. The postponement
is caused by Jack Evcrhardt's illness with
malarial fever. Evcrhardt savs he will
be ready in a few duvs. but the club will
not permit him to light. Kid McPartland
wanted to claim the forfeit, but finally
consented to await another opportunity

will ever be held at Fleetwood was held
this afternoon with fair weather, a good
track and a speculative crowd. The bay
gelding. King Chimes, started off to win
the 2.14 class in short order and landed the
first heat with ease, but in the second he
had a desperate finish with Pastoral, who
was only a nose behind him. In the next
two heats Glenmore Boy won by a length
with Pastoral a fighting factor all the way
around, and the latter won the heat in a
grand drive down the stretch.
In the 2.1G pace Highland Lassie won the

GRAND OPENING TO-NIGHT.
The New Central Market to Open In
Grand Style Third Regiment
Tho new Central market opens to-night.
Not many weeks have passed since tho
enterprise was originated by a young man
of some political prominence and business
ability. People said it was a grand idea and
tho press commented favorably upon tho
proposition to give the south end a "busi
ness push." Then the work in tho hands
of a committee of the stockholders, who
incorporated a company, formed under tho
title of the Central Market Co , began its
labors. The work of th it little band of
business men Is something Kansas City
people ought to feel proud of. An elegant
business structure, luuBuiiiuauy ana ex
pressly designed for a modem market, con
taining about 40 stalls, excellent "anitary
plumbing and every conceivable device and
modern convenience, is offered tenants
and public, in an "up to tho minute" mar
Too much encouragement cannot be given
this market. It is to the interest of every
family to support It regularlv for table
needs, as the prices asked will be tho very
lowest, and weights, measures, etc. will
be strictly correct. Attend tho formal

An assistant general freight agent of a

letter head of the branch factory there of
a Kansas City lumber nnd box companj :
"Dear Sir- In response to mj application

since, a postal from jou giving me the In

refer to this number. As it undoubtedly
appears verv necessary to write vou again
regarding this matter. I now comply with
jour kind request to jog jour memorv b
mention of the talismanic number. 100903.
"I was very glad to get this postal; it Is
a nice postal, and, if not patented, I think
I will have some printed mvself for the
beiictlt of my creditors. This thing of re
sptnding to a dun by giving a reference
number In lieu of the cash never struck mo
before, but, if a success, it ought to prove a
factor and a valuable object lesson in the
economies of living expenses. However, as
I am not especially desirous ot practicing
the theory upon mjself. I would be greatly
pleased to hear something a little more
definite regarding claim No 100909.

St. Louis, Oct. 19 Delegates representing
nearly every Important railroad compspiy

Association of General Passenger and
Ticket Agents, which met at the Southern
hotel, about noon to-daj for a three dajs"

general passenger agent of the Chicago,
Burlington & Quincj" railroad
The question being discussed to-daj- in
evecuthe session is the inter-llne ticket
problem, which has been a constant source
of worriment to general passenger agents
lor the past tw enty j ears. During the three
dajs of the convention the following sub

changeable ticket of the Central Passenger
Association; necessity- for uniform . ifttj

Despite Recent Coinpnct of Executive
Officers, PnsseiiKcr Situation
Chicago, Oct. 19 The situation in West

mediate Improvement, and the chances are
that Chairman Caldwell, of the Western
Passenger Association, will find it nec-cssarj-
in the near future to call a meet
ing of all of the interested lines for the
purpose of seeing that the agreement re
centlj entered into by all of the Western
roads for the maintenance of rates and
the nor.-pajment or commissions is kept.
Practically evcrj road that agreed to stop
the pajment of excessive commissions is
row pajing them just the same as at the
time the agreement was made. The set
tlement of the troubles between the Oregon
Short Line and the Union Pacific has not
stopped the payment of tho large com

bo discontinued in the near future.

the On Is and the Stock Yards, the latter

tune of 1M pins The Owls bowled a total
of J.59G, while the Stock Yards could only
reach 2.432. The attendance was large and
the season begins its new start under the
most favorable auspices. All differences
have been reconciled and nobodj has anj
kick coming. There Is apparently no rea
son whj- the season should not prove more
successful than unj- tournament ever held

was the strong team work of the OwK,
who made the excellent average of 519 1-",
while the Stock Yards averaged but 4S6 2-3.

An Exception to the Rule.
From Cassell's Journal.
There Is an old saylpg that "the more
jou kick a dog tho more,he will love jou,"
but there are exceptions to every rule.
Some j ears ago I was stationed at Dev
onport. A friend of mine (whom I will
call. Bates) owned a hnndome retriever
dog. The animal received more kicks than
caresses from his master, and I was con
tinually remonstrating with my friend on
his cruelty to the dog; but his only answer
to mj- entreaties to be kind to the animal
was the usual one, "the more jou kick him
the more he will love you."
I was verj- kind to the dog, and my kind
ness was well rewarded, as the sequal will
Ono afternoon Bates and I engaged a
boat for a row. Bates tried all he knew
bow to prevent his dog from getting into
the boat, but I eventuallj- prevailed upon
him to let the dog accompany us.
On the return journey a fog came on and
a passing steamer swamped us, with the
result that our boat was upset, and we
were struggling In the water. We could
not swim, and the steamer's crew could
not see us, although thej could hear our
cries for help.
As I was sinking the dog grabbed me and
pulled me to the upturned boat; but I could
not get him to save his master, who was
Rare Lace "With a lllstor).
From the New Orleans Times-Democrat.
There Is a bit of interesting history con
nected with the lace that Stuart wears
about the neck of the handsome black Ilk
dress that he affects in the third act of the
delightful "1492," now on the boards of
the St. unaries tneater. it was during a
tour of the celebrated Impersonator to
Mexico, a jear or so ago, that the wife of
President Diaz witnessed his performance
and was so charmed because of his re
markably clever portraj-al of a feminine
character that she sent him several jards
of magnificent lace that was of inestim
able value, being over 400 jears of age.
Stuart values the heirloom accordlnglj',

Love is the sun of
woman's life. Its
dawning is the
sentiment; it bright
ens into the steady
affection of the con
tented wife, and
reaches its glorious noontide in the happy
mother. Happy motherhood is a true wo
man's loftiest ambition Her highest pride
is in her fitness to fulfill this grand and
sacred destiny. Nothing so clouds and
darkens her existence as to be incapaci
tated for this noblest of womanly functions
by weakness or disease.
A woman who suffers from any ailment of
the delicate special organism of her sex,
feels something more than pain and phj si
cal wretchedness. She is mortified with a
sense of womanly incompleteness.
But no woman need remain under this
cloud of misery and dissatisfaction. Dr.
Pierce's Favorite Prescription positively
cures all diseased conditions and weak
nesses, and restores complete health and
strength to the feminine organs.
It is the only medicine of its kind devised
for this one purpose by an educated and ex
perienced physician, and eminent specialist
in this particular field of practice.
It is the only medicine w hich can be relied
upon to make the ordeal of motherhood
absolutely safe and almost painless.
"I cannot say too much for Dr Pierce's Favor
ite Prescription." writes Miss Clara Balrd. or
Bridgeport, Montgomery Co., Penn'a. "I feel it
my duty to say to all women who may be suffer

Trom Architecture and Building.
A California church was built from the
timbers of a single tree. The building is
in Santa Rosa,-and was erected for the
members of the Baptist communion in that
plate. Tho timber was taken from a red
wood tree that grew in the neighborhood.
The interior of the church was paneled and
finished with wood, not a particle of plas
ter or other similar material being used.
The floors, seatings. pulpit, roof and roofing
were all formed from material taken from
the same three, and after the building was
flnlshetl in everj- particular stuff enough
was taken from it to manufacture C0.000
shingles, besides a large quantity of scant
ling, joists antl other dimension stuffs.

church decided to erect a new place of
worship. Stone was --carce. In fact, there
were no quarries and no rock suitable for
