Dec. 24.—Several l»ind|«d negroes from southern Kan- Bus ^ai northern Oklahoma,' held a ihasB [meeting here for the purpose of ralBlBg a large fund -with which to fight the new "Jim Crow" law In Ok,% Ibhom^ Thejr propose to make a ' test cake or th6 new law just as soon as It becomes. effecUve. The Soufheht'' Kan-' HUB negroes are taking an active pari In the matter because many of them have Interests in Indian Territory I'art of Oklahoma that make them travel iji that state frequently. Quite n sum of money was ratasd, and an :iUoniey will be hired to get the law into cotirt at once. Said one prominent negro: "We think it is an unwarranted discrlmln- .-iiion against our race, and We are poing^ to' do all in our power to se• lire their repeal. W'ejdo not Intend to adopt violent or radical measures Ti secure our rights, but wHl leave U to the courts to decide. We have money to hire competent lawyers and more is coming In every day.: It is il.e princip'e at. stake, and nothing . ise which has Impelled us to take up this fight." r 'TW<AS A SECRET MARRIAGE. Bronson Man and Moran Girl Were Married Tjianksgiving Dayi It has just been discovered that the marriage of Mr.lGrover Anderson, and 7.1 iss Grace Mattox, of Bronson, was II secret one, that the two intended tc take in the| Coffeyville teachers' meeting, but instead went oh to Yates Center, where they were married on Thanksgiving day.

Both bride and gro»m ar^, v.-'ry highly esteemed young people, <ii" two of Bronson-3 best families Tliey have both lived among us .from • liildhood nn(^ their warm friends ar :;U their acquaintances. They will I i -obably not begin housekeeping until tiprlng when Grace's term of schoo nt Maple Grove closes. Joy and -con le -tit be theirs." KANSANS IN NEW YORK; Story of tihe Coolness of a Former • Newsoaper Woman. Kansas City Star:—Mr. and Mrs l>ester Ralph, the latter formerly El sie Reasoner of Leavenworth, had luost thrilling experience last Monday ' night whan the building in Thirty third street, in the top of which they liavc their studio and living apart meats, was partly burned.: One of the floors below them was. occupie tiy a perfumiere, and the smoke and Vumes from the burning perfumes was so dense that the firemen were unable to get past up to the third floor up to where the Ralphs were known to be sleeping. Only the coolness and pres ence of mind of both Mr. and Mrs, Ralph saved their lives. The evening before at a dinner party in their apart meats a friend asked them how they would escape should the building »rver bum. Going) to a window Mr. J^lph showed his inquirer a narrow ledge or cornice about eighteen in (lies wide which led to a window'in tli'» adjoining house. That he said •na.s all the fire escape he needed It vas, too, for when he and his wif? found their escape cut off from the stairs, they climbed out of the win ilow, crept along the ledge exactly as :)iey had said they would, broke the window of the adjoining house, niad calmlj- walked down stairs and into tho crowd of excited firemen who were running up ladders and bpallfag tiown doors, and breaking skyllghls. ••ind smashing things up generally Ih their efforts to reach the studio. The studio was considerably damaged By smoke and water, though the fire did not reach It. The greatest toss was a verj' old and valuable print, that •Mr. Ralph prized most highly. The .•sensational papers made the most of the affair, pf course, and printed diagrams and pictures of tlie studio, and the life saving ledge, showing Mrs. Ra:^ collapsinig on the brink, and Mr. Bmlph hauling her back.
