J. Frishman, of Kansas City, Leases Double Rooms on East Madison for Large Stock. M. J. Frishman, of Kansas City, Mo. who has been in this city for several weeks, succeeded last Saturday in closing a deal with Messrs. R. B. Stevenson and W. S. Hendriclvs for leases covering the elegant store rooms now "occupied by the Ramsay Bros, dry goods store and the Landis milinery after the expiration of the present leases. Mr. Frishman will have two fronts, side by side, making a hand some double store and in one of the best locations in the city. It^ Is his intention to open about August' 15th or September 1st with an exclusive dry gooilB stock, fresh and new", carefully sefoctcd, and of such proportions as a city,of.this size warrants.

I'he Register has Just learned of the death of Mr. William Swartman which occuiTed on Saturday, June 27, in Logan township. , It appc<irs that Mr. Swartma,n had gone, to one of his neighbors,' alx)ut two miles from his own home, on some business, and was talking w-ith him. In apparently good health, when he suddenly threw up his arms and cried, "Oh, help*" and sank to the .groui^l. His neighbor at once did everything for bis relief that he could think of. but within a few moments he ceased to breathe, his death no doubt being due to heart failure. Mr, Svrartman formerly lived in Blm I township and will be kindly remem- Ibered by: nearly all the p^iple of that township. He was an old'soldier and a good-farmer. The. sympathy of all her friends will be extended to his widow, who Is left very lonely as there iwere no children. A Staategic Tragedy at Chanute. John Hlarkness, ton Q £ Chas. Hark- nesSjOf Chanute, and a cousin of Mrs. C. G. Taylor, pf this city, attempted suicide by shootijig ; himself with a •(4-caliber. gun fat his home at 10:30 last xA^t. Yoahg Harkness is a pretty hard, niit for the old folks to nuuiage, fuid be'seeau tohave grown sorrjr for himself as a result of the punishment meted oiit to Mm. ' He lay about his home yesterday, full of booze and self- pity, toyed with the gun and worried the family. He prepared a sad, touching little note about bis life being ruined, his being an outcast and nobody caring for him. Then he carefully placed the pistol at his head and fired, the ball cutting a furrow across the top of his cranium. At this distance it looks very much as if the boy had tried to shoot that furrow Into his head and nothing more. Now he will be pitied and petted and none of the family will dare rebuke him for fear tie will kill himself for good.

Allen, tkrho occupies rooms on the second floor of the building, told a policemth who was called that he threw the slop and that he also flred a shot from a revolver which followed the other disturbance and. was intended to drive the boys away. The police lielieve another member of the family, presum ably the quick-tempered mother-in-law, started the rumpus and tiiat Allen waj^ too gallant to allow her to figure in it.
