HARVEST HANDS HELD TJP. Kansas I-'arnu-rs Impress Laborer* From Santa Pc Train. BURLINGAME, Kan., June £6.—Driven to desperation by sight of their rich fields being ruined for want of harvest ers, a party of twenty Osage county farmers held up a west bound Santa Fo train last night to obtain the help neces sary for reaping their grain. No. 55 was pulling out of Peterson, a small town a few miles south of here, when four husky, heavily armed farmers entered the engine cab ani ordered the engineer to stop at a certain crossing a mile south of that place. At the same time others pointed revolvers at th« conduc tor amd brakemen and when the train stopped compelled them to cut loose from the two emigrant cars containing harvest hands bound for the Western fields. The engineer was compelled to move the fore part of the train on down the track, where it was held. Meantime there was a> fierce conflict going on be tween the farmers and the harvesters, who resented the vigorous measures tak en by the would-be employers. Clubs, ballast, shotguns and revolvers were brought into play, and for half an hour the battle raged fiercely. Finally, however, after several of each party had been severely injured, a compromise was affected by several persons not en gaged in the conflict, and the 200 har vesters agreed to work in Osage county at $3.50 a day. The two cars were soon emptied, the harvesters going across the prairie gxiid ed by the • farmers. The train was re coupled and backed up to Burlingame.

Mil 111 m BOARD OF CATION DECIDE NOT TO MAKE IT GRADE SCHOOL LIST OF TEACHERS APPOINTED Complete Staffs Provided for All tlie High Schools — Very Few Changes Are Made. By a bare majority the board of educa tion decided last evening to permit the high school branch of the Cleveland school to remain, a resolution by In spector Waite, providing for its discon tinuance, being lost by a vote of 3 to 4. Inspectors Waite, Bassford and E. O. Zimmerman voting In favor of it, and Egan, Fry, Savard and B. Zimmermann against. The lists of high school teacn ers appointed therefore included a corps for the Cleveland branch. When the meeting opened Robert Brownson was the on'y member present of the citizens' committee, appointed to lay before the board the protest of the residents of the First and Second wards against the removal of the Cleveland high school. He stated that as he lived In the Second ward, and the school prop erly belonged to the First and as he had no children of high school age, he did not feel that he could fittingly rep rtsont the district or even the commiUee of which he was a member, although he was deeply interested in having the Cleveland high school maintained. He hoped the board would defer action until more of the committee could be present. The board, after determining that no appointments of high school teachers could be made until the Cleveland ques tion had been determined one way or the other, showed its disposition to be fair in the matter and its desire to hear what the committee had to say by send ing telephone messages to all of the committtemen who coald be reached in I that manner. After a wait ot some du | ration, B. S. Osgood, also from the I Second ward, arrived, and later Dr. R. O. Earl and E. A. Koen. Mr. Koen, who was the first membw of the committee to be heard, was some what severely called to account by In spector Waite for criticism of Mr. Waite's action in the Cleveland tchool matter, which he had published In a weekly paper of which he is the editor. I Mr. Koen stated that the committee had come to lty before the board petitions representing the combined "wisdom and foresight" of the First ward. Mr. Koen explained that the people of the Cleveland district h?ld Mr. Waite responsible from the fact that he, being a resident of the First ward himself, was expected to look after t.ha interests of that section of the ci y in the hoard, and furthermore because he was said to have been chiefly active in bringing about the action of the board Looking toward tht removal of the school. Mr. Koen fur ther said that the alumni of the Cleve land high school had taken the proposed abolition of their alma mater deeply to heart and had unanimously signed a pe tition for the abandonment of that plan. Another petition to the same effect was signed by all taut three ot the pupils of the grammar and lower grades of the Cleveland, in whose interest it had been said that the high school department of the school was to be removed. Dr. F. O. Earl, a physician of the First ward and a member of the committee, made an earnest argument for the re tention of the high school. In spite of the argu.nents of the mem bers of the committee, Inspector Waite still held to the opinion that the best interests of the city, and particularly the constituency of the Cleveland school, de manded that the room formerly devoted tc the high school should be given to the younger children. In keeping with that i>iea he introduced a resolution pro viding for the discontinuance of the Cleveland high school branch, with the provise that the pupils should be trans ferred to any of the other schools that they should prefer. The resolution was lost as stated. TEACHERS FOR THE SCHOOLS. The following teachers were appointed to the vanous high schools for the com ing year: Central—Mr. E. V. Robinson, principal; Mr. G.

Europeans usually eat a very light breakfast. Many Americans have stomach trouble because they eat too much or food of not the right sort for the morning meal. An ideal breakfast Is a baked apple or some other fruit, a dish of Grape-Nuts Food with a little cream, and a cup of Postum Food Coffee. Leave off all meat, hot biscuits, etc. Grape-Nuts and Postum both furnish the phosphate of potash together with other food elements that go to make up brain and nerve centers, as well as muscle and tissue, and both can be digested by the stomach of an infant. It Is the part of wisdom nowadays to use food especially selected for nourish ment and that can be easily digested. Ten days' trial of this breakfast and you will feel as though you had "cleaned house." The exhilaration of bounding health is worth a hundred times the small outlay of time and care in arranging such a breakfast. Mrs. Riley, 125 Chestnut street, Cam den, N. J., says she formerly breakfasted on chops, hot biscuits and coffee. "After such a meal I would have severe pains and they would last sometimes far Into the night." She finally determined on a change in her diet and had for breaK fast only Grape-Nuts Food and a little cream with Postum Food Coffee. She says: "In a very few days the intestinal trouble all disappeared. I have regained my old-time weight, lost the irritability and nervousness, and life takes on a new aspect. "When I feel a little exhausted in the> day I Bimply drop everything and stir a spoonful of Grape-Nfs in a little cream or hot milk, ani in ten minutes I have regained my vigor and fresh ness," Grape-Nuts Food Ja best when served just as it comes from the package with out any cooking whatever. The food has already been cooked ten or twelve hours in the process of man v fact v ring it. When made up into puddings, pies and other desserts it does not hurt it to be cooked again, but when served simply as a breakfast food It should never be cooked. On the contrary, Postum Coffee absolutely must be boiled fifteen or twen ty minutes before the food value and flavor can be brought out. I TELL YOU, SIR! nesses have left the state, there was but small chance of a conviction; Hass Open-ed "Wrong: Letter. Frederick H. Hass, a youth of sixteen, was arraigned before United States Com missioner Spencer yesterday on the charge of opening a letter addressed to J. D. Kelly.

William H. Kirn-ball, who retired from the presidency of the bank, was at his desk today, wind ing up some private affairs. He said: "The morning mail has brought the bank many offers of assistance.

Charles Looby, the man. with a ■wood en leg, who 'has been bound over to the district court at Omaha for running amuck in a Farnam street hotel, is one of the best known characters of central South Dakota, says the Chicago Intar Ocean. His occupation, when he was not wandering around the country in the guise of a tramn seeing trouble, is-that of a farmer. He owns several quarter sections of valuable farm land in San born county and a large herd of cattle. He is of a very quarrelsome disposition, and when his neighbors refuse to quarrel with him he dons the most tattered suit of clothing he can procure, and to vary the monotony of life on the farm, sallies out into the world In search of excite ment. He usually sets more than he bargained for, but this does not deter him from making his "raids" on the peace ful communities of South Dakota, lowa and Nebraska. Looby has repeatedly been "run in" by the police as a vagTant, although his ch£ck for thousands of dol lars would be honored by bank officials . who are aware that he is the owner of a large quantity of valuable property. Last April Looby made one of his periodical trips, and having made his es cape from the police at Sioux City, where he had been arrested as a tramp, he went to the Nebraska side of the Mis souri river and worked his way toward his home in Sanborn county, this state. While at Hartington, Neb., he called on Father Loecker, of the local Catholic church and applied for money to pay his board bill. In pity for his supposed poverty and hysioal condition the father granted his request. Father Loecker soon afterward noticed the cripple making his way in the direc tion of the residence of the sisters who conduct the Catholic school at Harting ton. The priest sent a messenger to in- For the annual meeting of the National Educational Associa tion at Detroit, Mich, July 8:h to 12th.

The sisters inadvertently informed Looby of their reason for refusing his request for money. The cripple became greately en raged, and, returning to the house of his benefactor, made a savage attack on the priest. He adopted his usual mode of attack by unbuckling his wooden leg am] utilizing it as a club while he hop; about on one foot. SeveTal persons went to the rescue of the priest and the crip ple was overpowered and lodged in jail, but Father Loecker refused to prosecute him. Since that exploit nothing had been heard of Looby until his attack the other day on the employes and guests of the Omaha hotel. _ BABY SPOILED THE FtJiX. Detroit Free Press. After the mother of the wife came on to visit the young couple who have mad') a good start in Detroit she soon detected an undue amount of depression in the domestic atmosphere. Like man/ an other mother-in-law she has a good head and a good heart, but their combined in spiration and observation failed to en lighten her. Direct Inquiry of her daughter brought out the fact that they had been deserted by the young folks who were their con stant visitors and entertainers. "They used to make excuses to come here and enjoy an evening with us," said the young wife, "but now they scarcely ever put in an appearance, and when they do It Is only for the briefest of formal calls. I can't think of a thing we have done to offend them." The mother did a lot of quiet think ing and finally suggested that her daugh ter issue invitations for an evening ptrty. The guests came. Promptly the little baby of the house was given the cen ter of the stage. Every woman had to talk baby talk and every man had to^pat the cheeks or solicit the hands of the youngster. Then all others had to be silent whila the father and mother took turns in tell ing how smart the baby had been and what cute antics It had gone through. Following this the little chap was put through his paces, waving his hands making a bow, saying "Papa" and "Mam ma," pushing a chair and trying to swil low a watch. There was no chance for the visitors to talk over the current events of the day, gossip, flirt or ask questions. Then it was that the grandmother seiz ed the baby, announced that it must al ways be in bed at 7 o'clock hereafter, hoped to see all the young people again, bade them good night and retired with the little monopolist. A few ventured in as scouts for the next night or two, their reports were sat isfactory and now the old-time joyous ness has returned to the house. PAN-AMEAICA.N EXPOSITION.
