' Cimuoo, May 17—[Hpcelnl nclvicc» received by the Kansas Grain n»d I/ivc 8toel< company.!—In spito of renewed heavy rains our market has been weak and inactive, due principally to n report that the world's Inst week's shipments torn) been uhont two million bushels in exeoBS of the previous week, 'flic official fin-urea posted by the board just us the market was closing, indicates a decrease of one million instead of an increase. The last floods will, , protyibly, do more damage than previous rains, for they, will keep the sown grain under water long enough to kill it, and postpone seeding nntil it is too lftte to raise a crop. This means that hundreds of thousands of acres of the most fertile lands in this country are a barren waste so far as spring crops are concerned. 'Die situation is growing worse and the whole country will probably awaken to this fact be/ore long. Conn \NI> OATS—The outlook for these grains is, of course, worse than for wheal, because but little seeding has been done, and it seems impossible now to raise anything like a fair crop of either. If the rains should bo prolonged a few days considerably higher prices are probable. In provisions this has been about the dullest day of the year. The folluwlng Is the range of prices for . active futures: eleudy. There was a little rain during the night.

LONDON, May 17.—Three Englishmen mounted on a triplet machine have just made an astounding performance. They pedaled a mile in two minutes and ton seconds on the road, and now everybody is wondering how last they could have covered the same distance if they had extended them- selyes on the track. For six months it lias been in the air that the triplet was faster than any wheel. People doubted it because they knew that itho tandem safety, where the power of two men is concentrated, had never been driven anything like as fast us the Eagle safety had been driven, either in competition or against time. The tandoin mile record for the world was made by Zimmerman and "Hilly" Murphy at Peoria last lull, but it is us high as 2:21 1-5, The world's single safety mile record stands at 2:IB —track work, of course. Now come the Englishmen, and, after a nine-mile steady puBh at a three-minute-to-the-mile clip, loosen up and go a mile in 2:10 over a road which from what is known of it is no better than our boulevards. It is safe to say that if the new machine had been taken on a track with wide corners, say a half mile or two lap, trotting or cycle track, the time for the dis. tance would have been something less than two minutes, for there is all of that difference in time and speed between the race track and the road. The names of the men who had the mouut on the triplet are Arnott, Lowe and Dangerficld, each of whom is ae counted as fit company for the speed, iest men in either hemisphere. Th< trial, for that is all it was in reality was made on the famous Bipley road outside of London, and the timing was official JOKES IN JOURNALISM. instead of "firo ironB;" and another paper, in the same part of the country, urged its readers "to tako a retrospect of the future."

Till! uimsu*. weather In tho northwest Blunders Mndo in tho Editor 's Sunclnm That Ilulfio n Smile. Much has been written of newspaper jokes, but there is an infinity of humor ithin the walls of an editor's sanctum which scarcely over reaches tho ears or tickles the mind of tho public. Were many of tho blunders which accidentally creep into reports before they see the light of publication allowed to go uncorrected, newspapers would always be humorous, and more largely purchased than at present. The staff of tho reading dopartment of newspaper office are compensated in tho weariness of their work by tho amusing errors which come under their notice while reading printers' proofs. What would have been thought of the following had it escaped the eagle eye of the subeditor and found its way im> print, the effusion of » country correspondent: "At petty sessions, A was charged with game trespass and with assault. The latter being dead, did not appear." An excellent example may be quoted from a report handed in a few days ago, which must havo been hurriedly written. It was descriptive of a county council election, and birth was given to a new species of ornithology, for "the successful candidates were followed by a large crow (d), which loudly cheerod." It was only a few weeks ago that a highly respectable Midland journal announced that an admiral "was buried with musical honors." By far the most common form of typographical blundering is the insertion ol one letter in place of another. Not long since a newspaper, reporting the danger that an express train had run in conse- qnenco of a cow getting upon the line, Bald: "As the safest way, tho engine drivor put on full steam, dashed up agaiuot the cow and literally cut it into calvcsl" There are many farmers who would, no doubt be glad to know when that engine driver is to be on a train again. Mistakes are not always the fault of the compositor; they frequently arise from illegible writing on the part of those who supply "copy," or from reporters failing to catch the exact words used by a speaker. The late Mr. John Bright waa generally beard with perfeot distinctness in every corner of the house of commons; but on one occasion, when he spoke of "atteudersof clubs," these aristocratic gentlemen appeared as "vendors of gloves." Another orator, Bpeaking of the Ital ian struggle, 8a;d: "What do the Ital lans want? Tlioy simply want to bo u nation." "What do the Italians want?" said tho report. "Thoy simply want to bo iu Asia." A journal onto announced that a company of policemen inarched down a street, "dressed in blue and white gloves." The reporter who attendod an inquest at which verdict of "death from recent hemorrhage" was recorded; concluded his roporc by stating that the jury roturned a verdict of "death from her recent marriage." A well known paper, which has a large circulation in North Wales, reported that a man who had been recently married hod boon "presented with firearms" lie Is a Oentlemun of Ability, Good Intentions and Urcat Wealth, [Special Correspondence/] N EW Y ORK, April 14.—CornelhiB Van derbilt, who wfe named after his grandfather, tho old commodore, has nothing in common with him but financial ability (tho commodore's whole life was consecrated to the accumulation of money), being a well rounded, large minded, highly estimable character. He is at forty-five the head and controlling spl-'t of the present generation of Vanderbilts, his brothers, William K. and Frederick H., following usually in his lead; while the youngest brother, George, is not in business at all, confining himself entirely to study. Imagine what a recreant scion of monetary stock tho original Cornelius would consider Georgo, and how he would proclaim, as he did'every man not a money maker, a blank sucker. Tho commodore very early recognized Cornelius' rare financial ability, and nd- mired him accordingly, showing the highest appreciation of which he wot capable by leaving his grandson by will $5,000,000 as a special gift. He ma^i him, soon nfter attaining his majority, treasurer of the Hudson Biver railroad, and trusted implicitly whatever official statements he made, saying, in his peculiar English, "That 'ere boy, Corneel, is alius light, sure OR shootin." No millionaire in New York (our millionaires are as a rule notorious niggards so far as public benefactions go) is to inclined to be generous in every way though he does not parade his giving, as some others do. While very orthodox in creed, he commands the respect of the most heterodox and rationalist, for they believe him sincere and conscientious in his professions. A man of his immense future feels obliged, for social considerations, to give elaborate and expensive entertainments, notwithstanding which he is simple and unpretending in ordinary life. He is accessible in his office and at homo to everybody, save eccentrics, bores and impertinent interviewers, and is free from the assumption and formalism that mark some of his kinsmen.. No man is more industrious, even laborious, as he must be having charge of so many millions, of interests so vast and far ramifying. He works on an overage ten hours a day; is punctual in all his engagements, and considerate of every body worthy of consideration. He takes pains not to overwork, which is not dilfi- cult for a man of so great executive power. J. E.

Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer the ills we have, than to shulllc off this political 'coil, embrace the Alliance vagaries and stultify our conscience in the hope of office; ay, there's the rub. Thus to die; to/ sleep; perchance to dream of.Ierry'sspeech that "the Democrats of Kansas are but the poor white trash of the south," must give us pause, and when tho Alliance lenders declare that our beloved Democratic party is orrupt, but ask our votes, it puzzles the will and makes us rather bear tho ills wc have than tly to others that we know not of. ^ Time to Think.

(It Columbian Club of llono County. Throughout the state, clubs are being organized for the purpose of bring ing before the world, at the Columbian exposition, the work and progress of women in Kansas. The lady commissioners for. Kansas recently organized a club in Hutchinson, the county seat of Reno, and the ladies of the salt city are full of enthusiasm for the patriotic cause. A constitution and by-laws have been adopted and the club already has a large following. No membership fee is charged, the only requirements being patriotic en thusiasm and a desire to work for the cause. Of course the first matter to be considered after the organization of the club was that of funds, and to that end itias boon decided to give an enter tainment, in the Hutchinson Auditorium recently completed for the state convention. "The Gates," a spectacle both novel and unique, will be given on the 2d 3d and 4th of Jutae, in the evening and also on the afternoon of the 3d and 4th. The gates of various cities in various countries will be represented, with the peasantry of those countries in costume. Articles, typical of those countries, will be for sale at the booths clustered about the gates. The almond-eyed people of Japan will be ready to cool your brow with curious fans; dusky Moors will sell to you for a mere pittance amulets warranted to keep off the plague, in whatever form it might take, whether of disease, drouth or cblnch-bug; the beauties of Venice will dispense from their gondolas refreshing ices; you will be offered, always of course, at the very lowest price, bits of bric-a-brac from Spain, Holland, Paris; trifles from Russia, Sweden, Rome, in fact "The Gates" will bo a world's fair in miniature. In addition to the gates and the booths, th_e gypsy tents and the bands of strolling musicians, all of which will form a spectacle both beautiful and in structive, a programme will be provided for each evening, something on tho order of a costumed drill, a musical programme, tableaux, or a band concert. Tickets are already on sale, and it is hoped that tho residents of adjacent towns will make an effort to visit Hutchinson to attend Tho Gates and to become acquainted with the Columbian Club—indeed, one of the principal reasons for giving this entertainment "A Yard of PansicR.
