A fine feature of to<iays meeting ol the society was an address hy I'oiin oilman G. C. Glynn on the subject "Highways and Horiiciilture." In an interesting prelude Dr. (;iynn gave his idea of the attitude necessary before modern highways could be attained. Then followed a systematic plan for the consiructinn of jroqd highways. Dr. Glynn placed especial on the conservation of natural resources and said that good roads were a part of the mechanism for the conservation of time which is, of course, the equivalent of money. The speaker advocated the e.siab- llahro^ni of a national office of KOO<I roads which should formuiatg a plan for the construction and maintennnc* of good iiubiic hiRhwa.vs. There should he u sniff of national, «<tai<' and district eusineerH, ihi- latter lo be governed by a board of cotiiniisslnn- ers. Tlie distrlci c-nKiix'cix should mabo reports of the condition of roads, plans for h«tterments, expense, num her of acres which would be increased in value ijy good road.<, pradrs, lities, tonnage, nature of soil and dralnaKf. Then there shorihl in' rejH)rl8 on decrease of repair.s to farm vehicles. Increased tonnage, inrreafed land values, advantages uf being able to catch markets at high tide by iva.-^on of good roads. These findings, the speak er said, should be cheeked over by the state engineers and action, taken accordingly. Dr. Giynn then gave statistical data of reads in Allen county, showing that 570 miles of road could tie improved so that the advantages derived would pay the cost, in savings, of macadam or oiled roads. The address contained concise .stale -mentft of the condition of overland traffic and suggested plans for iiu- provcments which were unique and original, yet feasible. The society voted to ask the docfdr lo |ire|iare his address for publication. During the afternoon several other interesting i)apers were read and informal discussions held. 0 03000000000 0 0000 o o O PRISON FOR EATi>'fl APPLE. O O Chicagi> Doc.

The township treasurers in preparing their bonds this year must comply with the law which provides that they file a bond for double the amount of money they are likely to handle during their term of office. For some reason, no one seems to know why, township treasurers in this county have v.ot for many years, if ever, been compelled to comply with this provision of the law. They have usually put un bonds for something like $500 although many of them handled money from five to fifteen times that amount. The matter was called to the attention of the commissioners a day or two aso and they decided that it be investigated. On top of this, came the Marmaton township trouble in which, it is claimed, that the township officers have been expending much more of the people's money In the improvement of roads than they .<;liould. This moved the commissioners to decide that all bonds filed this vear must meet tha requirements of the law. Several township treasurers have flied their bonds for the usual sums. The commissiOncn; took the matter up with Capt. H. A. Ewing. county attorney-elect, who was In the room.^ and asked his opinion. He said the: treasurers should comply with the law, making the bonds double the amount of money they would in nil )robablIitv handle for their constituents. The commissioners will therefore, send the bonds back to the officers with the suggestion that thev make tbn ninnunts what- they should lie under the )nw.

Kas. a little village twenty iillIeK south west of Kansas City, where Sharp had trumiied since the day of the Imttle. lie was discovered in a hay stack. He made no resistance. His hands dripping with blood, caused by ugl.v wounds in each, his hat pierced with hole .s, from the bullets which had failed of their purpose to wound him. his long flowing beard now but a shOrt stub. Sharp no longer looUi 'ii the part of the patriarch who had but a few da.v .s ago stirred the hearts of his followers to bloodshed. His spirit wa.s broken and he cried for food. After he had been fed Sharp said: "A long time ago. I followed a man nani'»d Oreen, who told me he was Jesus Christ, and that I was his son. We traveled through Oklahoma, studying deeply the Bible. The more I studied the more 1 came to know that I was the son of Ood. Then I believed tiiat all peniouK who opposed me were enemies of the Creator. 1 believed this until the first bullet from the officer's gun struck me in the hand. Then I knew that my teachings were wrong: the light suddenly ilawneil upon me. but it was too late and I fought on. I am sorry for my sins. I aui no longsr '.Adam God.' I'm just plain 'James Shani.' When I lie- conn? composed I shall write a letter lo by followers who are scattered throuphout tin- entire country, telling tlieni tliai our rt 'ligion is all wrong; it is a mistake." Sharp 's capture cam<' as the result of ills own hiinge.- and want. Last night he went to the'boirie of J. R. Beaver, a farmer ii'-ar Monticello. and asked for lodging. He refused to remove his hands from his pocekts saying their wert- frozen. This morning when he appeared for breakfast he still wore his overcoat, and pleaded with the farmer to feed him. This was done. After Sharp had taken leave, Beaver became suspicions. He sjioke to a numlier of men about the town and they decided that the mysterious person was ".Adam God." .'V search was Instituted and about Ave o'clck yesterday nftenion the party came upon Sharp sleeping beneath a hURe haystack. He showed no resistance. Offlcers from Kansas City arrived and rctnrni'd with Sharp to Kansas City on n late train. To Play Ft. Scott.

For these reasons he wanted to get into the IJO. Ha'rpe district. John Remsberg, 'f the Gas. CRr scbi 'ol board of education, was present and spoke against the appli&tlon. He said the distance to the La Harpe school from the Stout home and homes cf tlic other petitioners was about the same as the distance to the Gas City school. He also said that the :^cliool district boundaries had long been established and should not bo changed. Fpr these reasons he was against the petition. During the course of bis remarks, .Mr. Stout referred to Mrs. Panstoa having turned the application down and intimated very strongly that Mrs. Funston had passed on the application ticforc it was ever presented to hcfr. Mr. .Moorehead of the la Harpe school, board, s^ald practically the same thing. When Mr. Moorehead had conclnded^' .Mr- Remsberg arose and stated that It was unfair, he thought, for inslnna- ion^ to lie made against the action ' of Mrs. Funston when, ahe waa hotV present nor in town to defend herselt. Hrof. Baker of the La Harpe achobi, fi .nally asked to say a word. He ad- • ded interest to the case by saying that under the school laws ot the state neitlier the commissioners nor Mrsw Funston had authority to act on SQCh an application, but .that the board of education of La Harpe was the proper' body to present the petition to, a§ 1.) Harpe. the district to which the' iKtitioners seek to have their land ransferred, is a second class city. In . .su)>))ort.'cf bis statement he read front the school laws of the state. After both sides had eoncladed their arguments, the oomnilssloners decided to consider the : question'further. before rendering a decision. The oratory displayed by the inter- ' ested parties drew qhlte a crowd, the • commissioners' roon^ being filled wKb . spectators before the matter came to n close. ' V- V TO HAVE BUST WEEK.
