Quenemo, Kas., Jan. 8.—Rob- [>ers blew up the vault and safe of the Quenemo State bank early this morning and escaped with nearly $7,000. The vault, badly wrecked, stood open this morn ing-, and the door of the safe, which stood inside of the vault, was blown off. Of the money stored in the vault last night, only a few dollars in silver and some pennies were left this morning. The bank carries burglar insurance covering the loss. No one in Qtienemo heard the sound of the explosion. Some persons were aroused by the noise of pounding, but except for fixing the time, no other attention appears to have been paid to the disturbance. Two railroad velocipedes, one belonging to the Missouri Pacific and kept at Lomax, a mile from Quenemo, and one kept by the Santa Fe at Quenemo, were stolen and were found this morning at the switch tower, where the two lines intersect, just west of the North Ottawa junction. The fact that two machines, each capable of carrying two men, were stolen, is taken as an indication that four men were engaged in the robbery. It is believed the men either caught a train at North Ottawa, possibly for Kansas City, or have made for Southern Kansas. Quenemo is a small town in Osage county. * SOCIETY AND CLUBS. * • t • ***** + **.**** Few afternoons have been more thorowghly enjoyable than this afternoon, when Mrs. A. M. Griffin entertained a number of guests at her pretty home on Elm street. With Airs. Griffin receiving, were Mrs. J. H. Barclay, Mrs. John Milbank, Mrs. Lotjjs Gould and Mrs. West. The receiving party ami assisting friends met the guests in the first drawing room made unusually attractive in a dainty pink decora'tion of carnations, • these fragrant flowers standing in large vases about the room. In the second drawing room were also pink carnations. In the" dining rom red and green, -'the co.lors of. the holiday season, filled the apartment with their cheery brightness. The brilliant color of th'e Veautiful red carnations, which filled a large cut glass vase in tlie center of the table was reflected in the handsome equipment' of (the table below where the candlesticks, with red shades bearing the red candles, tHrew softened light throughout the room. In the dining room at the 'table sat Mrs. Jonathan l-Iawley and Mrs. 'Mason Little, who cut the cream. The guests were served by Misses Lee Saw- vef and Mary West. In the cor- iitT of the second drawing room was the coffee table over which presided Miss Adah Taft and Mrs. Chares Swan. Mrs. Turner distributed the favors of pink carnations to the 'guests. The assistants were Mrs. Andrew Leeper. Miss Hawley, Mrs. McVey. in the den was seated the orchestra, which furnished music throughout the aftenoori. * * * Sorosis met Wednesday with Mrs-. C. B. Swan as hostess and leader. The lesson was on the artist, Andrea Del Sarto. Mrs; Hawley told pf his life. The characters of himself and his wife were given by Miss Knapp. Mrs. Botts- 'ord gave his paintings and portraits of himself. The roll call vas quotations from Browning's 'Andrea Del Sarto." A most excellent paper on "Savonarola" was ead by Mrs. Gould. During the ntermission,Mrs. Swan very de- ightfully entertained the mem- ers by some very fine grapha- >hone music. The club will meet an. 15 with Dr. Frances Singer. * * * Miss Neen McVey entertained our tables of 500 Thursday night n honor of Alonzo Hawley, who s the guest of his parents, Mr. nd Mrs. John Hawley, in this ity.

According to Reports |He Had Been Denouncing Methodist v ahd Roman •Churches. Clarence,'Mo./Jan". 8.—L. j. King, a holiness preacher and lecturer, was met by. a mob while leaving the church last night and assaulted. Acording to reports King has been denouncing the Roman Catholic and Methodist churches and while leaving the Bible Seminary, where the meetings are held, in company with the local minister and singer, he was met by the mob. The local preacher was seized by the crowd -gpd struck once be* fore he wa? /-ecognized as not being King,^ The mob then released him ai/d caught King while the singer craped. The extent' of injuries done to King can not yet be ascertained, but they are not believed to be serious. Clubs and a pot of tar were found on the ground where the affair took place and it is believed that tar and feathers would have been used had not the people who were yet in the church come to the rescue. King began his series of lectures last Sunday night and began by"denouncing the Methodist and later, it is said, he talked on the Roman Catholics. Owing to the sensational nature of his speeches large crowds have been it: attendance, but his remarks were not taken seriously by many until last night. For the first time an admission fee was charged and a lecture of three hours' duration was delivered. kerchje&.&r ' the highest -lunehcon .~f*3..Z.,-,*& was served. j . . . .

Auroro, Mo., Jan. 8.—What may prove to be the entering wedge to the expose of a swindling scheme of wide extent is being investigated in this section by former Congressman Finis E. Downing of Virginia, 111., who was in this city yesterday. Congressman Downing represents -a client who purchased 90 acres of Ozark county land, to which an abstract was furnish>d, with a clear chain of titles. On presenting- the deed to the Ozark county official for filing, it was pronounced a fraud. The matter is being vigorously pushed, .and as the casedevelops, it is bringing to light a scheme .of fraud that may involve several citizens of iouthern Missouri. A want ad. may make a,vast difference in the kind of a job you secure—whether it's to be what you want or merely what you have to take. If it has been a fortnight since you published or answered a want ad., you have been "losing interest in things." _j $65 A MONTH The Santa Fe 'railroad, Woodward, Qkla., has em- ployed Ralph Hoyt at $65.00 a month.

West Webster street. dlMtf St. Louis, Jan. 8.—Judge Sanborn of the United States circuit court appointed A. G. Stickney and Charles H. F. Smith, both residents of SL Paul, receivers for the Chicago Great Western railroad this afternoon. A. B. Stickney is now the president of the road. The law firm of Kellog & Severance of St. Paul was named to represent the receivers. The appointment of receivers followed the inability of the company to meet obligations falling due in 1908, and the failure to secure an extension of the obligations. Loss as a result of the boilermakers' strike of last fall is given as one cause for the financial straits of the road. It was also pointed out in the proceeding that the company in the last ten years has spent 19 million dollars in reconstruction. The 1 petition for a receiver was filed on behalf of the stockholders and thej finance committee by John A. Htnnberg of Minnesota, George P. Meyer of New York and Ward Cummings and Alex Wallace of Great Britain. As soon as the petition for the complainants had been filed an answer was filed on behalf of the directors, who met this afternqon and voted to become a party to the receive'rship proceedings. A want ad. is quickest—it finds the new employe, sells or r rents property while you are "thinking about other ways. INHERITS FORTUNE. St. Joseph, Mo., Jan.8.—Father Charles F.
