The maximum freight rate law rel-. ..•itive to oils passed l)y the Legislature j • cf l&it5 will be tested by a case filed in j the Supreme Court yesterday, says the Topeka Capital. The case in ouestion is from iMitchell county. J. "W. Tucker of Beloit bought 25 barrels of oil from the Webster Refinery at Humboldt and the oil was shipped over the line of the Missouri Pacific railway company. The charge made , by the railroad compsiny was $15.02; and under the maximum freisht rate} ; law aprlying to oil the freight charge j (should have been only $12. | Tucker paid the bill and secured j t'le oil. then brought a test case in the district court of Mitche'l county for ?5i>(i damages and costs and attorney fees. The district court gaye him a judgment for tic full amount. The Missouri Pacific has appealed the case to the Supreme Court and asks ithat the judgment be reversed. It contends that the maximum freight law as applying to oil is unconstitu- fioual and confiscatory. This Is the first case of this character that has reached t>e Supreme Court since tlie law went into effect. .-ATMARTIC ^.^^ ' • i •• K v. - . t!ii.:rt st.imi'ea ecu. .;;;-:.:.»- .K>i-:cJv Co., Chicajj* cr N.V. 595 .^NKUAL S4LE.

But when some ; of the younger and less married of | the grocery force heard it they quit wrapping up soup beans and got their heads togetlxiy. The result was they got a promise from Mr. Sperry that if he would give them 5rt per cent of the ; proceeds they would undertake to got) the f:o-way bag with the precious cer -j tifioates out of hock and rescue the beautiful maiden from her predica-; ment. Then they sent a telegram to Madrid, Spain, as per directions, te'lins the dying man tliat they would take him at his own "offer. The message cost six dollars but they figured that if they could get one-half or one- fourth of several hundred thousand dollars they would still be away to the good: so much so that they would be able to quit dispensing green cucumbers and filling prescriptions for canned tomatoes, and cheese.^ and could retire with a small fortune and the satisfaction of kuowing that they had rescued a helpless maiden from the cold contact with a cruel and unfriendly world. Just about this time F. E. Shoe-' maker, the postmaster, heard of the; Spanish deal and ho remembered' something he read in the Postal Guide for October. He took it over to the store, and when the clerks read it stock In Spanish fortunes and pretty maidens began to depreciate and in less than five seconds they could have been bought on the market for less than it would take to ret a share in the Kelly Motor Company or the Calico railroad.

The swindle is one. of the whi.«ker- ed variety and has been exposed repeatedly, but it hlos.soms forth again with perennial regularity, whenever -rons are good in Kansas. One day this week a new comer to Chanute. who is_ of Greek descent and never remembers having any re'atives migrate to Spain, rci'elved the advance feeler of the swindle.

Topeka, Kas., Oct. 24.—In a circular letter issued yesterday by Commander \V. A. Morgan of the Katasas G. A. R. He calls attention of the veterans of^he Civil war to the precautionary measures with which the government has surrounded the law providing for pensions for soldiers* widows. It appears that this law requires the widow to furnish proof that Iter df^i coascrl husband was never married until he married her and half a hundred other things, impossible in many instances. Commander Morgan recommended that the veterans go to a notary and make a sworn statement of all of these facts while they are living so that the widow may have no • rouble in securing her pension after bis death.
