Dr. Hager of Kansas City who discussed at length the physical needs of a day of rest and comparing the moral and finan cial condition of the countries where Sunday is not made a day of rest with that of other countries where it is. He was . followed by Miss Kate Shaw, of Cameron, representing the W. C. T. TL, and Eev. Dr. Urafts, the field secretary of the National Sab bath Observance Association. The evening session which commenced at 8 o'clock, Rev. J. A. Brooks of Kan sas City delivered an address on the political feature of the Sabbath Day Observance movement. He made many strong points advocating the introduction of paternal features into our government for the purpose f protectirg the people from thepc pie's vices. He made an interesting comparison between a Sunday in St. Louis and the same day in Toronto, Canada in which St. Louis suffered severely by the comparison. In Toronto, every de partment of businesB. even the mail is closed, and the services of nobody can be commanded except for work of the greatest necessity, while in St. Louis many business houses, includ ing saloons, are open and hundreds of drunken men and women reel through the streets.

The Union Pacific passenger depart ment has issued a little book with illustra tions, giving simple remedies in cises of poisoning, drowning and fainting and various accidents and emergencies. Of course, it is to be understood that none of these distressing things ever occur oh the Union Pacific. Engine 25b. 9, on the Indianapolis, Decatur and Western road, has run 139, 990 miles without any repairs of import ance or being remoyed from its wheels. Master Mechanic McKenna says that he proposes to let the engine run 20,000 miles more and then take it into the shop, which will be the largest mileage of any engine reported of running without undergoing general repairs. The Missouri Pacific officers are so efficient that honors are fairly thrown upon them, nothing seeming to be loo good for them. Joseph H. Lyon, their western passenger agent, furnishes the latest case in which an official of that com pany has been signally honored, having been appointed, on the 22d inst, brigadier general of the Uniform Rank of Knights of Pythias. Court stenographers as a rule can tell very interesting and funny stories about witnesses and attorneys. One of these came to light the other day and is a good one on Judge Springer, oi the. bt. .Louis road. He was aeiename nis roaa in a damage suit The withess was a plain-talking Scandinavian, a little ignorant of court customs of his adopted country. The counsel for the plaintiff endeavored to prove by their witness the proper way to couple cars. Judge Springer, however, thought the man was a little mistaken on the score of coupling, so he proceeded to show the court and jury the true way. A model stood near by, and an attempt was accordingly easily made. "Now isn't that really the most symtem atic'way of making a coupleing ?' queried the judge of the witness,after the operation had been finis ned. "Well" then a short pause "all I can say is;" replied the practical r&ilroder, who had watched the proceeding with the keen est interest "the man who will make a coupling in that way is a fool."

"After the election of officers a3 pub lished in the Bazoo Friday afternoon, the following resolutions were adopt ed which completed the business of the convention. Resolved, As there is in onr physical nature a necessity for periodical rest, there fore we urge all the people to observe one day in seven as a day of r$L Whereas, The holy Sabbath is often des ecrnted by christian people, in the matter of editing, reading, selling and advertising in Sunday newipapor?, and in buying or selling, and in riding for pleasure or busi ness on Sunday traius; therefore be it Resolyed, That we, as ministers and members of Christ's church, do what we can to arouse the conscience of our onend ing brethren and secure a better observance of the Lord's day. Whereas, Civil government is of God, and constitutional liberty is a civil gift of such comprehensive and enduring value that any attempt to overthrow it is justly regarded as the highest offense, subversive of personal security. liberty and sacred human right: and Whereas, Civil and religious liberty are inseparably connected with each other; therefore, Resolved, that the power of the magis trate ought to be used to enforce civil duties, to protect the rights of civil and re ligious society, to enforce the obligations of the Sabbath as established by stats and general law and in all its acts of adminis tration to be governed bv the highest standard of moral and religious principle. Resolved That men in "every department of labor, in every profession of life and in every official station, from the humblest citizen to the magistrate of the nation, are under obligations to reverance God and respect and keep His Sabbath, and we hereby call upon all to give revered atten tion thereto. Resolved, That the law oi God being irrepealable, and that compliance with the same is for the highest good of our race, physically, mentally and morally, there fore the general government should appeal not only to the will of man, but al-o to divine authority, lor tire enforcement of the secular observance of the Sabbath day. Resolved, That we regard the Sunday newspapers as one of the most mischievous of the forces arrayed against the observance of both our civil and religious Sabbath ; hat we consider it needless as a news agency, and positively injurious as a teach er ot morals and religion; that we condemn the greed for gain which leads to the mul tiplication of its copie3 and pages, and the increase of its facilities for distribution on the Lord's day, as a prostitution of the power of the public press, an abue of civil liberty and an infringement cl the Sabbath rights of the multitude of employes, thus robbed of their Sunday rest. Resolved, That we will do all iu our power, both by precept and example, to reform the false sentiment in this matter, largely created by the Sunday newspaper itself, and will discourage its patronage in every way ; furthermore, that we will seek to have the laws of our state, forbidding secular work on Sunday, so amended as to apply to the publication and sale of Sun day newspapers. Owing to the fact that Bev. B. S. Campbell, D. D., of St. Joseph, was not present to participate in the ex ercises of the evening, as had been ar ranged for, it was decided not to hold a night session, and at 4 o'clock p. m. the convention adjourned sine die. m m Bucklen's Arnica Salve.

The volubility of witnesses keeps him in perfect misery, and the for eigner who mixes his grammar torments him frightfully, This is all right for the court reporter while writing, but the tug-of-war comes when the notes have to be dictated afterwards for printing. For ex ample, Scandinavians, who have not been iu this country long, invariably mix their genders. "My woman," they say (referr ing to their wives), you know him." Think of what it must be to dictate the proceed iDgs of a divorce trial in which such mix ups occur! and quietly go to work with their strychnine-injecting apparatus on all the old soakers and young suckers they find a sleep round saloons. It would be a really good temperance movement." ROBBED AN EXPRESS CAB. Masked Men Beat a Messenger Insensible and Obtain 3 $1,500. Said a well known gentleman : "Social usages are improving. A girl is not an old maid now until she is much past thirty. Once she was an old maid at 25. In the better circles girls do not enter so ciety at as early an age as they did when the tag, "old maid," was affixed to them ii they didn't marry by the time they were 25. The lass of 16, 18, or even older, is in school, occupied with her music and other studies now, and not receiving baux alone in the parlor, evenings. The largely in creasing number of women, independently situated, who prefer to live unmarried, is likely to work a decided change in the status of the old maid. The girl who pre fers the luxuries of her father's home to sharing a flat or a boarding house with a salaried young man, is multiplying very rapidly. The Sketcher stepped into the office of a Third street merchant on business the other day and found the gentleman in a some what "cantankerous" frame of mind. This was something out of the ordinary run of things, for this particular merchant has the reputatiou of being a very urbane business man with a cool, level head, who seldom permits any circumstance to disturb his equanimity. "Yes, I'm annoyed," snapped out the gentleman, In reply to a remark, by the Sketcher ; "the fact is Ive been the vic tim of a visitor who came in to see one of my clerks. The visitor is all right enough, but he has a husky voice and talks in a low, rumbling tone, entirely lacK ing iu energy. And he's been in that oth er room talking in that peculiar way for over an hour. The partition is thin and I could hear his spiritless, husky voice. I can't stand that sort of thing. I can con duct a bie business without inordinate worry; I can work in the midst of a rat tling business conversation going on about me: people may smoke and whistle and sing in my office as much as they please it doesn't disturb me in the least but iust one thing bothers me to death. There's noth ing so wearing on a man's nerves as toirive j to listen for hours to the low, rumbling j l r i t r !: lunes ui & man wun a nus&y voice lai&iug on the other side of a thin partition. At any rate that's the way it affects me. Why, it has actually driven me to drink. Yes, sir; I had to step out and get a cocktail to brace me up." ''Isee," remarked a gentleman friend, "that a Russian doctor has discovered that subcutaneous injections of strychnine will create such a distaste lor liquor in in ebriates that they can't be induced to touch it after the operation. It seems to me the prohibitionists could use their cam- . i paign iunds to some advantage u mey would set this eaterprising Bussian doc tor to come over nere wna some assistants Dallas, Tex., May 25. Last night an east-bound passenger train on the Texas Ss Pacific road was robbed of $1,500. When the train was a few miles beyond the city limits two men masked, with drawn revolr ers and knives, rushed into the express car, beat Messenger Wray insensible, took his keys and rifled the safe. They then pulled the bell cord, stopping the train and es caped. One of the robbers is believed to be the "Lone Highwayman" who has been robbing trains in Louisiana. A posse is in pursuit, R. A. Gunn, M. D. Dean and Pro fessor of Surgery, of the United States Medical College, editor of Medical Medical Tribune, author of "Gunn's New and Improved Hand-book of Hygieue and Domestic Medicine," speaking with reference to Warner's Safe Cure, said over his own signa ture : 1I prescribed it in full doses in both acute and chronic Eright's di sease, with the most satisfactory re sults. I am willing to ac knowledge and commend thus irankly the value of Warner's Safe Cure."

The Game. Yesterd?y evening a match game of base ball of the M., K. & T. boys took place on the company's grounds between the Audi tor's nine and the General Freight Office nine, the score being 21 to 16 in fayor of the latter. Many brilliant plays were made by the boys and a picked nine from the two would make either the Y. M. C. A. or the M., K. & T. regular nines hustle. The game was umpired by D. S. Willard and Jim Donohue who gave general satis faction and there were very few objections made to .their decisions. Another game will take place next Saturday. There was also a foot bull match wnicb v is very in teresting and a quoit tournament is now being gotten up, the winner in which will receive a handsome prize. The lawn tennis grounds are in good shape and a very ex citing game took place between several la dies and gentlemen. Aivin Ray, of the Franklin school, is said to be a remarkably bright boy. He has only attended school twenty-seven months, put it altogether, and after the first nine months was awarded a prize fox progress and is now in the sixth grade. His teacher, Miss Mary Legan, is- vert proud of his progress and the fact thata the last examination he received theonl prize awarded to his class.
