Florence came into the rourt house, the floors reBoundin-p with the thud of heavy boots. Mr. Florence will hardly look at Mr. Cards boots.

Will Attempt to Take County Seat Away from Pottawatomie. Guthrie. Okla., Pec. 1.—Shawnee has announced that H will enter Ifce race for the county seat of Pottawatomie county. The principal reason assigned by Shawnee for Its attempi to take the county government away from Tecumseh, a much smaller town six miles distant, is that the people all over the county desire such change. •Shawnee'has a population of about 10.000, while Tecumseh has less than .3 000 people. The latter town, however, has been the shire town of.Pot tawatomie county for years and It will put up a hard flght against the larger town. Tecumseh threatens to block any chance that Shawnee may have of securing the state capital if the latter town ^cts the county seat. A Beautiful Silk Flag.

Man-Got the Votiteetioa In the Xalb. Topeka, Dec. 1.—Ur. S. J. Crunxbine secretary of the state bojird of hrnlih received yesterday a cake from Wil iiam E. Forney of Salina. On the top of this cake there were enougii strycli nine grains to have killed half a dozen men. The cake was sent to Mr. Forney through the mails. He does not know where It came from or who sent it as the postmarks 4re so badly blurred that it is impor. sihle to tell where the package was mailed. Mr. Forney suspected that the shining particles on the cake were glass but a closer examination showed it to be poison. After Dr. Crumbine's analysis is made the cake will be turned over to the (wstoffice authorl ties. The cake was of cocoanut and the shreds hid the grains of strychnia very well. If it were not eponed In bright light it is not likely that any one would notice the grains of pfdson The cake -was in a yellow pa'.ileboard box and wrapi)ed in yellow wrapping paper. TO EXAMINE MRS. STEIMIEIL. UoHtlle DemonstratioDH lo Be I'liiirdrd AKatn »t at the >Voman*K HeariiiK. Paris, Dec. 1.—The Investigation ot the SteinhcU case did not make any great advance to <lay. M. Andre, the examining magistrate, heard only a few seconuardy witnesseH. The moat im|>or.tant rcKuits. however, are cx- |>ected from the lengthy examlnatUMi ot .Mrs. Steinheil. which has lx>en fixed for tomorrow and Wednesday. The magistrate will decide from (he evidence whether (he "reconstruction" of tha crime In the j)resence of .Mrs. Steinheil will be necesjHuy. Extraordinary precautions are being taken in view of a possUile hostile demonstration tomorrow. Mrs. Stein­ heil will be brought to the court at an eariy hour and will be kept henceforth In the Conclcrgerle. It W88 announced last night that Mrs. Steinheil 's counsel, M. Aubin, will retire from the case. The reason given for this is that he took It up prior to the criminal indictment, but that he now prefers to turn it over to a special assize court advocate. a .s he Is not versed in that class of work. A .MAX FOB >EWBERBT\S JOB. The AsBlstant Sary Portfolio t« H. L. Satterle« of Xew York. Washington. Dec. 1.—Herbert L. Sat terlee of New York, it is understood, has been tendered the ]>osition of assistant secretary of the navy to take the place of Truman H. Newberry, who becomes Secretary of the Navy today, succeeding Victor H. Metcalf. whose resignation became effectiTo then. Those who failed to attend our meetlnp at the M. B. church laat night missed a wonderful sermoii. Rev. Haimlton took as his text the wonder ful exhortation found in the 22nd cl.apfer, 17th verse of Rev., "And the Spirit and the bride say, corpo; and let him that is athirst como; and whosoever will, let htm take the water of life freely." The minister made it plain to his audience that the church represents the bride, Jei^us Christ the bridegroom .has gone to prepare a place for the bride. He has left His holy spirit as a comforter for the bride until He comes again. The church Is Inviting sinners to come and take of the water of life, that they may enjoy the blessings ot eternal life in that mansion prei)ared for whose garments have been wa.shcd in the blood of the lamb. The bride or the church is putting forth great efforts now to reconcile men lo God. Songs are being sung, that tell of the mercies of God; prayers are being offered that the sinner may sec the error of his ways and turn to the Christ for pardon and mercy: sermons are .l>cing preached, that point the dyinr soul to the Son of God that laketh away the sins of the world, and through it all men are treading the downward road to ruin. Every day souls are plunged into eternity, theqe to meet the judgment that they li.-ive failed lo prepare for while here In life. Men are seeking pleasure, honor, wealth anil all that belongs to this ephemeral life, and failing to lay no treasures in heaven that would Mess them for all eternity. T^t him that is athirst come. And whosoever will. let him take the water of life freely. J. M. M, CEN .SrS TO COST $12JW0,0(10. Reglstar want ada pay. nireclor North ENtlmateH It Just 1M10,000 More Thau Washington. Dec. 1.—The cost of taking the next census as estimated by Director North, In his annual report JUKI Issued, will he $1:2,330.000. The <lircctor points with pride to the fact that this sum Is liiil $110,000 luorr than the cost of the census of moo. and says this will be ncci>mpIiHho<l "In spite of (he enormous grpwih In the i>opnlalton during the Inst, decade a growth largely contributed by foreign born i>e"|»le who do not s|ieak Kuglish. a class which it Is very expensive and very (lifficuK .to eiiuiiw'r- ale." The IncrcMse. he says, frotn decadi to decade heretofore has been at)out 50 pi>r cent. The enormous saving says the director, will be effected h\ reason of the existence of the permar ent census bureau and the installation of the bureau's own tabulating machines.
