The Critic of SeptA-nlier Is n study of
"Cnsa Hrneelo," "Daisy .Miller," "A Hu

Tho coming week Is one of unusual In
terest to the membership of tho National
Union 1n Kansas City. The first matter
ot interest Is the union mectinr of all
tho councils with Iliad council nest
Wednesday evening, at tho hall over Nos,
1201 and, 12&0 Walmit street. All of the
councils are notifying their entire mem
"bership, so that the probabilities are that
the entire order will be out In a body.
Hon. Webster Davis and Oeorge A. Neal.
who are members of Iliad council, will be
present and make addresses. Senator C.
H Riley, of Kansas City, Kas., has been
invited and Is expected to be present and
make an address, Other entertainments
will be provided by Iliad council. Presi
dent D. B, Stoner will preside, He will
bo sun. to refer some matters, If not all
O, K.t to the streets and alleys committee.
At this meeting Kansas City council, by
its committee, will submit a proposition
to Iliad council to com-oildate with them
selves. The other councils will have to
get u curve on themselves If they capture
this plum, Friends P. li. Nettleton and
Johnson are proving themselves hustlers
tn this matter, und it looks now as if
they would succeed. It is expected that
Candidate George Nellls will be present
at thin Wednesday ovenlng meeting for
initiation and try the throwing qualities
Ot the goat ktpt by Iliad council.
Olive Branch council. No. 5i7, will meet
In its hall next Thurs.ley evening. They,
a well as Mechanics' council, No, Hi),
which meets ai the tamo place, are having
a very satisfactory growiih. In fact the
order was never In a more satisfactory
condition here in Kansas City than it is
to-day. And. as one, member remarked
this week, why shouldn't It prosper? The
order paid out to the beneficiaries of Its
deceased nicmiiers 111 H3J over Jl.SM.Wi,
and at a maximum cost of only $7.20 per
J1.C0O per annum, which is only about one
fourlli the cost of the average old-time In
surance. The memberkhlp of the order la
now upwards of W,ua,
At th last meeting of the Jackson coun
ty cabinet It was decided to u'cept the in
vitation of Iliad council to nuilte it an
ollicial visit on Wednesday evening, Oc
tober 9, which Is the same ovenlng of tho
Ancient Order nf fiiited Workmen.
Among tho visitors ut the meeting of
Railroad oleott lodge, No. 418, Saturday
evening, were District Deputy Grand Mas
ter Workman Bradley, Brothers Wright,
Cain and Itowley. Brother Ilradloy canie
to pay a farewell visit to Hailraad Oleott
previous to hU departure Monday tor
another part of his dlbtrlet. During his
stay of three mouths in the city Brother
Bradley has made hots of friends and len
dejed splendid t-ervice to the order, and his
ib'iwrture is a matter of deep regret to the
sixteen A. O, I'. W. lodges in Kansas City.

Olnhcltig over my diary, that of n
government chemist, I lmvo found many
Interesting notes, which form u con
tetut-otiiry history of the ndvtiticeiiiunt
In tliw knowledge ot flKhtliig crime.
In JS-y it llrst occurred to tno Hint
photography could bo made a most lin
purtiint runt tne In vnsest of u peculiar
kind, nnd I have since tlevcloetI inrlh
oils by which photography win bo miulo
eminently userttl to the- crlmlnnl courts,
one of tho ilr.it enscs In which I hud
success with thu photograph nnd micro
scope occurred many yeiitH ago. The
ense wits this: In the eastern part ot
Germany lived a man 78 yen in old. Tho
son of the old man cared for him nnd
had given him a small room In nti out
hotijo In which to sleep. Tiring of tho
old father nt In&t, tho poll decided to
get rid ot him, nnd oiu morning tho
father wits found hacked to nieces.
Suspicion was dltected to tho son, nnd
nfter it Ion? oeitrch tho nx, Hinenrcd
with blood, tra.i found, write- n Berlin
corresixindent In tho Chicago Tribune.
The son ut onco announced that ho had
recently killed a goat with an nx, and
tlmt the blood wns that of a goat. I
made photographs of blood corpuscles
of both a gont nnd a human being; und
showed conclusively that tho blood on
the nx wits that of a human belnp;. The
son subsequently confessed tho murder
and died penitent.
But In a murder case the matter I."
made much easier for the scientist if
hair can he found In the blood or on
the won ikiii used to commit the crime.
Take, for Instance, tho gray hair of
nn old man. Ve recognize It by the scnly
formation of the surface of the hair.
Through these wo see with the micro
scope the broken coloring -nil-stance
which Is longer nctlvely able to retain
the original hue because of tho nlr pen
etrating the many upertures.
But, aside from the ndvnntnge of the
use of photography In murder cases,
there are other department- of crime In
which It Is of value. Chemists crowd
the criminal profession. They deem to
have un aptitude for thlf science which
borders on the marvelous, nnd there are
men to-day In all countries who, by the
aid of chemicals, nre able to bailie the
best work ot the microscopic photogra
pher. But In almost all .-.ij--os we have
been able to discover alterations of ls
ures. A case In point is that of an old cus
toms olllcer who was stationed on the
Russian Iwrder. nnd -who was supposed
to keep an entry of all cattle brought
Into Germany at that lxilnt.
It appeared that the Russian cattle
dealers hail bribed him, and for months
he falsified his returns, changlnE" his
liooks at his home, from where he sent
the returns to the government. He used
a chemical In which was a nitrous acid
of great strength with other chemicals,
and It was only possible nfter many en
largements and repeated photographing
that we were able to secure evidence nnd
show that he bad substantiated the
figure- r.0 for 1"C.
Last year all financial Kurope was
worried by the discovery that foi-ged
1,000 lire Italian bonds were In circu
lation. For months It was known that
these forged bonds were being sold, but
It was Impossible to distinguish the good
from the bad. The paper had been stolen
from the government, nnd the engrav
ing hnd been done with such rare skill
as to decleve the most expert.
I was called into the case, and I had
decided that ordinary enlargement In
photography would not do. I first
brought out by the use of chemicals
ever portion of the bond In extremelv
bold relief. By the use of intense light
and a stron: microscope I secured an
enlargement of the chemicalized bond.
The result was marvelous. Under each
of the words "Mille" fl.000) appeared
the original "Dieel" iten), the original
denomination of the bond.

llask protruding irom quo of his pockets.
Being of a waggish nature- ho appropriated
tho bottle, helped tho stranger on with his
coat, and then pulling out the Ihuk said:
"Will you take u drink with ma?"
The old man did not recognize the twttlo,
nnd drawing himself up temarked rather
"No, sin I never drink."
"It wun't hurt you," Insisted tho wag-;
"its tho best."
"Young man," said the old gentleman,
speaking loud enough for all In the carringo
to hear. "If ou persist In drinking whisky
you will bo a ruined man at 10. It Is the
etirso of tho land. When 1 was a boy my
mother died, and the last thing she did was
to e,ill me to her bedsldo and say: 'John,
promise me that you will never touch a
drop of liquor.' " ....
"Oh, well, in that cafe,", said tho Joker, "I
must drink It myself." wheietinoii. Bulling
tho in tlon to tho words, ho pulled the cork
out nnd took a good drink.
A moment later be dropped tho liottlo
with an exclamation which certainly didn't
sound like a blessing, and yelled out: "Ugh!
ugh! my mouth's ull raw!"
Then it was tho old gentleman discovered
his los, ami to the amusement of tho
othor passengers, mild: "Ah, young man,
you will bo careful In future before you
take other people's property. I am Dr.
and that bottle contained some quinine and
Iron for one of my pitients."
Tlie young man got out ut the next sta

should not part with a cent of it until you know how little wc arc selling new goods for in this sale.
Tho great selling of tlic past wook

these Silki over the counters. But
ovon such great selling as wont on
here tho past week couldn't rid us of
tho great quantities which wcro of
fered. For the next few days we'll offer
these now stylish Silks at prices you
most probably will not see- again in
