Any Water Would Da, ' i Whon Colonel Boh Iugeraoll tired in Peoria, Ills., a man came to him one day to have him prepare the papers for the incorporation of a company to handle a new mineral water. He exhibited a very handsome bottle, and a beautiful label, with an impressive name for his spring. The colonel admired the label as a work of art, and mildly inquired where the spring wa« located. "Oh, that has not been looked after yet," said his client. "We have got the name, and wo have got the labol, and we have got the bottle.

U is evident that foreigners, while taking our wheat fairly, are working industriously to depress values. To this end bogus bearish news is being constantly set atloat. from that quarter. The world's shipments reported yesterday were overstated more than t?, 000, OHO bushel- whether purposely or not. The crop oullooU is growing more serious, ilreat damage has been done to the winter wheat, possibly millions of acres being under water while in the northwest one corresponding says that not over If. per eeut. of the contemplated acreage bus been sown in North Dakota and northern Minnesota, and, what is more, it can't be seeded thib season. This means a great reduction ot crops, probably fifty to sevenly-llvc million bushels, and it will soon be recognized us an annual eala mity. CoiiN AND IIAT.S —The market has not been as buoyant, to-day as the situation indicated. Probably this is due to the weather. The short interest having covered so generally and investors dislike bringing what looks almost like famine prices until assured that, conditions are really as bad as represented, besides many traders remembering the sharp break that followed a day's sunshine are now short in anticipation of another break break on the predicted clearing weather, but the lauds are in such condition thev could hardly be planted for ten days or two weeks under any circumstances, and it is proable that fresh storms will occur in the menntime. Provisions have, shown rather more strength, but the demand has been light, and nothing but the strength in corn apparently sustains the market.

KANSAS BANDS. rroeeeiliiijfii of the Annual Kcunlon Now l» HcHHlon at. Kingman. IVINOMA.N , Kan.. May 18.—[.Special,] —Fully fifteen hundred people packed the opera house last night at the grand concert given by the bands participating in the second annual reunion of the Kansas Hand Association. The K. of V. band of Kingman, twenty-six men. opened with ".loan of Arc" overture, and the hearty applause attested 0 line appreciation on the part of the audience of the splendid rendition. The High School band of Hutchinson followed with a selection which was well received. The Citizens' Hand of Medicine Ijoilge rendered a splendid selection, after which the Second Regiment band of Hutchinson played Von Suppe's "Poet and Peasant" overture in a style that captivated the ntire uudienee. When the Kingman bund had given a catchy ethiopean ex, travagunza, the Juvenile band of Medicine Lodge gave an overture, which heartily encored. The Second Regiment band played a selection from "Erminie," and the program was concluded by an overture by the Arlington band. The annual business session of the association was held this morning and resulted in the election of the following officers: President—Sol. Iluwthornc, . Kingman. Vice-President—A. 7 J. Hamilton, Peabody. .Secretary—Rimer May, Hutchinson. Treasurer Dcisein, Garden City. . «i Musical Director—Chas. Steinberger. tjuite an interest was manifested the selection of a place of meeting for next year. Ellsworth and Wellington had hard working, delegations on the ground, but as these two places repre sented the extreme limits of the present membership, it was decided that owing to its location and superior rail oad facilities Hutchinson was the most available point, and the next reunion will be held nt that place.

ATrtalto Deinonstnite tlio Utility of the Hiej'cle ill Military Servlee. CmcAtio, May 18.—A few seconds before 12 o'clock to-day, A. E. Ijums- den and 13. C. Bode, two of Chicago's crack wheelmen, mounted their wheels settled themselves comfortably in their saddles, adjusted their feet^to the pedals and with a friend supporting them on either side awaited the stroke of noon, at which time Maj. Gen. Nelson A. Miles, commander of the department of Missouri, was to hand them a message addressed to Maj. Gen. O. O. Howard, commander of the department of the east. Prompt to the second Gen. Miles stepped forward and thrust the missive into Lumsden's hand. In a jiffy it was safely stowed away, and with a friendly push and a cheer from the crowd the great relay road ride was started. The object of the ride is to demonstrate the utility of the bicycle in military service, and if the message is delivered in New York city within the time agreed upon, four days, this object will certainly have been accomplished. The run has been cut up into eight divisions, and each division into from four to a dozen parts according to the condition of the roads and the number of riders available. The men will go in pairs, there being about 140 of them altogether, and the distance to be covered by each pair varying from seven to forty miles. The approximate time that will be occupied in covering each section of road has been carefully estimated, and the men arc all under orders to be in readiness to receive the message |from the previous mun and bear it forward to the next without delay. The roads in some places aro simply attrocious on account of the recent rains, but the military feature of the enterprise has been impressed upon the riders and their orders are inflexible to push for ward through mud and water, rain and shine, regardless of everything but getting there. Wheelmen are enthusiastic over the idea, and claim that a record will make the fabled stories of the pony express dwindle into insig. niflcance. Oeorgln Democrats. ATI.A.NA, Ga., May 18.—The Cleveland and anti-Cleveland forces met this morning und selected candidates for delegatcs-ut-large to the national convention. There will be a hot fight between to two factions. The convention was called to order at noon, Chairman Atkinson, of the state committee in a preliminary speech said Georgians did not worship at the shrine, of any man, but at the shrine of principles. The principle for which Democrats must fight next autumn was that of tariff reform. The candidate that was true to that principle would bo elected whether he was Cleveland or Hill. - The Science or Shopping. See the lady. Is she a pretty lady? She is a pretty lady—that is to say, if accused of being pretty she would deny it; if not so accused she would be mad as a wet hen. Is the lady rich? It looks like it. She does not see anybody else in the world. Oh,, yes, Bhe is rich. What is the lady doing? Let us see. See her go into the Btore. • Did she s.tep on the pretty boy who opened thej door for her? Not quite; but the hoy had to hustle to escape. Why does the baldheaded man behind the counter have such hard work to look pleasant? Some people find it hard to look pleasant anyway. Does he enjoy pulling down all the goods in the store, as the rich, pretly lady requests? He Bhould. She will probably buy large amounts of the goods. But no. Seel She is leaving the Btore without buying anything. Does the baldheaded man seem tired? He seems tired. He has half a day's work before him to put the goods hock where he found them. See the lady. Is she having lota of fun? It is to be hoped BO. Nobody else is. Does she work other stores in the same way? She works a largo number of other stores in just the same way, Does she buy anything? Not a solitary blamed thing. What is she doing? : She is shopping. Is the lady shopping? She is shopping. Do many ladies shop? They all shop. Is there any .cure for the habit? No.—St. Louis Globe-Democrat. Troubled Over a Definition. "Papa," said the boy, shaking his heod dubiously as he looked up from his book, "I'm afraid I never can understand all these words." "Tut, tut, my boy," returned the father laying aside his paper, "yon mustn't get discouraged. Once you learn the definitions you will have ho trouble at all in understanding how to use them. Take any word you wish" " 'Fast,' papa," suggested the boy. ; "Yes, of course. 'Past' means rapid, speedy. Understanding that you can 't mako any mistake." "A fast horse ir. one that rung, isn 't it?' "Well, yea, sometimes. You're beginning to understand." "But, papa, a fast man generally rides, doesn't he?' "Urn, well, my boy," and the old gentleman looked at him over the tops of his glasses, "you 're beginning to get technical." "And a fast color is one that won't run, isn 't it?" v . "There, there; that'll do"——' "But, papa, I want to know" "Run out and play, and don't bother me any more when I'm reading the paper." And so the lesson came to an end.— Chicago Tribune. Some Difference, Springtorj—1 met Witherby today, and he said you were a fool to pay so *mnch for a spring wrap. His wife got one for ten dollars less than yours. Mrs. Springtop—Yes, my dear; but she only spent a day in looking for hers. It took me a week to find mine.—Cloak Iteviow. • ' • • - •• •'. • Indium or Ability.

The minister entered an electric car yesterday morning and sat down beside the young bank clerk who sings tenor in his choir. Tho minister had just been reading Gladstone's speech on the woman suffrage movement, and the bank clerk was finishing an' account of Monday's Pittshurg-Louisville ball game. "Grand old rami, that," said the minister. "Wonderful intellects so fertile in resource." The bank clerk lookod up a little surprised and folded bis paper. He did not expect to see so much enthusiasm on the part of hiB pastor.. But he replied: Yes, indeed, he is a grand old man, and. as you say, ho plays every point in heady way. That 1B the way to win too." . The minister was pleased to see the young choir Binger so well posted on English politics and thought to expand the idea a little further. He has groat force, don't you think?" he Baid. Yes, great speed," replied the bank clerk, "and can strike a corking blow when hits aro needed. It mokes me yell like a pirate to see the old horse trotting over the bases on a tied score." This mystified the minister a little and rather pained him to note the use of slang Bpeech on the part of his young member. But ho said quietly: "Grand old man!" , "Grand old sportl" murmured the tenor. . • • The minister looked at him over his lasses. "Are you referring to Gladstone, young man?" , Gladstone!" The clerk turned seven different colors. . "I was talking of Pitcher Jitmnie Galvin. Were you not at tho ball game yesterday?" .'; • The minister signaled the conductor and got off the oar quickly with "that tired feeling" showing on every feature of his kind face.—Pittsburg Dispatch. Wliat n Baby Can Do. It can beat any alarm clock ever invented in waking a family up in the morning. In a given time it can smash more dishes than the most industriouB servant girl in tho country. It can fall down oftener and with less provocation than the most expert tumbler in the circus ring. It can choke itself black in the face with greater ease than the most accomplished wretch that ever was executed. It can be relied on to sleep peacefully all day when its father 1B in town and cry persistently at night when he is particularly sleepy. ; J [ It may be the naughtiest, dirtiest, tagliesti most fretful baby in the world, but you never can make its mother believe it, and you had better not try. It can be a charming and model in font when no one is about, but when visitors are present it can exhibit more bad temper than both of its parents pui together.—Baby. • MethodlHt Conference.
