The exposure of alt the Kansas City accounts was given in our last week's Issue and the sto ries were doubtless quite amusing to Deputy I'ristoe, after his "des peratc run to the Coast, neck and' neck with Chicago authorities." Immediately after Storts' arrival here, where he was met by a num. bcr of Slater friends (several haV - lug gone to Kansas City, returning with him), the party repaired to the court house where Storts found no trouble in securing bond for 55000 and it is the general opinion that 100,000 could have been se cured as easily. The Slater par ties returned to that city on the last train that night.

He won the girl, and also left his opponent's face In such a fix that poor Church, for such U his name, will have a bard . time getting another It seems that Woods has .been fol lowing the visitor every night, threatening to cut short his life and the little love affair, if he did not return from whence be came, or quit going with his "stlddy lady." Ou Monday night; Woods ac- customed way of' prowling along behind, angered Villiatn4, who was accompanied by Maude Leo and whose mother attempted to induce the first to desist. Rushing forward past her, Woods grabbed Williams, who expecting further assault, drew his revolver and shot Woods In the left side of his face. This pnt an end to the frakhs; the1 wounded uau turned and ran to town, where the shot wound was dressed by Dr. Mansur. Upon the arrival of Marshal Lcmmon, who had been telephoned for, from a home near by (the fight oc curring on Eastwood Ave. in front of the residence of U. R. Page), Williams was taken in charge and given quarters in the city jail that night. At n preliminary hearing the next morning, before Justice Hawley, it appearing very evident that the shooting had been done in self-defense, the accused was uls charged upon payment of costs. The tables were turned and a war rant Issued for Woods, who Is now allowed liberty because of his wounds.

While the unfortunate gentleman was engaged in the cut ting of some rivet heads from the boiler, a sharp piece of steel of considerable size struck the eye lid, about the middle, severing the I lid completely, stopping only when all the coats of the eye ball ha 1 been laid open, allowing a portion ol the vitreous humor to escape Mr. Knight seems doomed to mlv fortune with his eye sight. Dr. I.each says, only a short time ago he had the misfortune oi having quantity of powerful acid In the form of a boiler cleaning compound blown in his eyes, from which be narrowly escaped from the loss of his sight.

Miss Fisher was 'assisted in receiving ad cntcrUlnfoc the" guests by her sister, Miss Nadlne; and It was the universal verdict that there had never beeu a more enjoyable even ing in the history of the club. The rooms were fragrant with the perfume of wild crab apple blos soms, refreshing one with the breath of the country woodland, while trailing vines, garden plants and great bowls full of the nar cissus and sweet lilacs graced every conceivable nook.

An Important case has just been decided by the Illinois Supreme court, A Bank at Marshall, Mo., had a mortgage on some cattle that were shipped to Chicago, but made no effort to prevent the shipment, falling back ou the commission man. It was shown that they knew that the cattle were about to be shipped, and took no means of preventing the removal of the cat' tie. The case finally got to the Supreme court, where it was de cided that in such a case it would be loo great a hardship to expect the commission man to keep track of all the mottgaged stock that necessarily finds its way to market from distant points.

On Monday evening as a re porter wended her way homeward weary with the cares of an unnsu ally warm day, her eyes were glad' denedand her thoughts taken away from herse'f and all the weary day, by the sight of 14 happy children playing upon Mrs. Jackson's lawn their faces wreathed in smiles tand enjoying to the fullest the good cheer, that had been provided for them by their kind hostess. It was a happy thought of Mrs. Jackson to give this little picnic to the children in the block. Child rci are very dear to mother Lute, and they all love her. The party was given in honor of little Florence and Kathcrine Patterson, who have been visiting on Arrow St. for some ten days. These little Misses acted as hostesses upo this occasion and in their atten tiona to the guests, set an example that older people might welt follow, They all assembled In the parlor where music and recitations were given. (Just ihluk of recitations and, music by children so young.) Katlierliie Vllcy played ' "My Country TIs of Thee',' and led the slngjng, all the childivu joining in the singing. Margaret Leonard and Dorothy Woodbridge gave some instrumental music on the piano, Bessie Sandidge recited and Flor ene Patterson told In a very aul mated way of "How Betsy -ami I killed the Bear." Hach child re cited or told some funny story. Joe Orear presented the lfostes.4 with n huge luiiirh of lilacs, with the bow of a Chesterfield. They played "Loudon brldgc,""drop the handkerchief," etc; then Mrs- JackJ sou gave "Jack and Jill" or "The Dutch Babies",, which'' was the crowning feature of this delight (nl entertainment. A regular pic nic dinner was spread on the lawn, 'embracing feutotrirde, fnlfts jfrfd little cakes baked In the shape of the different animals. Wben the sun was hiding his head in the west and weary little feet were ont to rest, they bade Mrs. Jack. son a reluctant good bye. Hach child carried with her a little sack of "Dewey" candy with a ptcasaut remembrance of the picnic. 'Modal Onltnre Olab Tuesday night the Musical Cul ture Club of this city, gave its first entertainment at the opera house, and though greeted by an audi ence of rather small proportions, was well received and much enjoy' cd by those present. Opening with mnsical selections by the Man dolin Club,F.tial Quartette and sev eral solos both vocal and instru mental, all well rendered, the pro' gram closed with an operetta, en titled the Spectre Knight by Al fred CeUler, which judging from the appropriateness of the different parts to the several characters, a visitor might have supposed the play was written for this special troupe. There were no weaklings in the cast and Messrs Miles and Huston were especially fine, while Miss Ruth Strong as the young lady who is won by the Spectre Knight certainly gave to the audience the impression that she was better fit' ted to play a leading role in a high-class comiiany than an ama tctir performance.

Portions of the cities of Kirksville and Newton were laid waste, causing an appalling des truction of life and property. About an half hundred people were killed, and hundreds were injured and possibly maimed fur life. The homes of over five huudrcd families were totally destroyed by the fu rious elements. These families are now thrown upon the world, des titute and homeless, and 1 apjieal to the charitable public to render to these unfortunate stricken pco pie, in this dark hour of death ami desolation, immediate financial aid. The citiens of Kirksville and Newton have done and are doing all In their tuner hy means of medical and financial assistance to alleviate the suffering of their fel lowaicu, but the lovi of life and property is so great that it is im possible to meet all the urgent de mands, and in the interest of hu manity, they iipic.il to their sym pathizing neighbors, mure fortun ately situated.
