His inability to do so was rested,solely upon a technical point, and when new pleadlngB are ^led a decision will be returned. Since the hearing last summer two of the litlganU. 0. N. Lindsay, president of the First National, and E* E. .Ward; president of the Bank of Com- Kerce. have both died, making it neo- -cssary for the attorneys to change the papers In the case and file new In- fonnatlon.

Was a Judgment against Shep iff Ogg. et al. for |1,834 In favor of IL C.: Dryden. This Judgment is in the nature of a labor claim and is tEEsInst the sheriff Individually and cannot be collected from bis bondsmen. It seems that when the old -Channte-Austtn refinery was thrown Into, bankmptcy and later attached, l^erlff Ogg appointed H.^ C. Dryden •8 custodian of the property and au . thorized him to employ sulBcIent .- gnaiids to protect' the property and pre .Ventit being damaged or carried away I wfane the attadunent proceedings Were being carried through court. Dry: den spent' several months watcbing the property and then purchased the claims of the other guards. Tbe property was finally sold under a jadgment ^and Dryden then brought suit against the sheriff Individually for the colleo tlon of a proper remuneration for bis tenrices. Farrelly & Evans, and^ Jones & Reld. Uttomeys for Osg, sought to show that the original suit against tbe, refinery had I>een dismissed, and .therefore the sheriff was not liable for the amount sued for. The plaintiff came -ctwek. then with proof that when the original suit was dismissed, thie sheriff had failed to certify Dryden's fees ia among tbe costs of the case. After being threshed through several terms of oonrt the case went to trU *beeora Jadge Fomt and yester- .day- be rnidered a Judgment, against Hie'aherUf for |1 .834 luid oosU.

The Ash Grove people reported the occurrence to the police force, so that the officers might be on their guard against any attempt to commit burglary in Chanute. It is not likely, however, that the yeggmen. If such took the explosives, would try to operate here. They may carry the stuff a considerable distance before they put it to use. It is believed that yeggmen did last night's job, t>ecan8e It is a custom of theirs to steal their explosives.

The men who have cliarge of the magazine reported yesterday that some one had tried to pick the lock the night before, but It was thought they might have l>een mistaken, so no special watch was set. LASt night the lock was torn off bodily. The building Is a small one, the bulk of the explosives l>eing kept in a stout storehouse, securely locked. Hereafter a watchman will visit the magazine at regular Intervals in the night to guard against another occurrence of the kind. "500 MEN WANTED." To Trap AU Kinds of Raw Fnrs.

(CopyrlAt, UOii, by.James A. BdgMlM. This matter must not ha rspriated wltl»> out ipecUl psrmlaston.] A ChaBfe of Soene. Usually as I write I sit at a window overlobklng tbe Hudson. Today, my window fSces the Delaware. After all, there Is not so mnch difference In rivers. Just as there is not so much difference In people. This river Is narrower and Is not fringed by mountains, yet it has its own call to the heart, it gleams away to hnppy goals,. It touches s mystic chord—Is It of memory?—Just as does the shining water In front of my own little home. Now I take out of a pigeonhole in my brain another photograph, aud this print is old, dated "Boyhood." I am on the front deck of a steamboat on the upper waters of the. Ohio. On either side arc mountains of foliage, covering the shores of two stales. Between Is the face of the water, and through it Is a dancing jiatb of light leading away to a Ix>y's Islands of the Blest What was the thing stirred in me by that scene which has made the charm of it last through the years? How little we know of ourselves when mere glimpse of nature will cause da to feel as immortal as the gods and more ancient than Atlantis! There are other photographs lu tliLs capacious mlud gallery—one of n moou- rise over a distant island in tbht same Ohio; another of my first view of any river when on a wonderfnl day lii childhood I drove with my brother to the banks of the Hocking, that winds among the Buckeye bills; yet another of a glide down the shores of the lower Susquehanna, dotted thick with cool and inviting islands; thou of a later ride along tbe shores of the upper Rio Grande wbero it whirls aud hurries amid bowlders through open spaces of the Rockies; of a level look from below over the caps of the Niagara rapids, having In them so much of chaos and tbe elcmcutal that they take the soul back through a cluster of nges to the beginning of things, and, last of a ride on the peaceful Potomac past a rise in tbe shore line known as Mount Vernon, famous to all times and all men because of tbe founder of a nation who lived, loved and died there. I can only catalogue these pictures, merely mention theu\ by name, and pass on. I cannot even attempt to describe the spell they cast on me. Truly I am a lover of rivers, and, like all who love greatly, I cannot tell why. 1 can only trust you to understand, iic- cause you love tbem too. One other picture out of this Inward collection that is "without money auU without price!" It was taken at Bur- dentown, at tbe old home of Colonel Kirkbride, where Thomas I'oine, the mmmmSeml'^AnnuaLmmm Takes place Thursday, December 31 The ladies of lola,and vicinity look forward to these sales with the greatest anticipation of the twice yearly bargaiuj events.

Still stnuds the old summer house ou the high Elope overlooking t he Dels ware. Doubtless Paine and Kirkbride have stood there gazing across to the green shores of Pennsylvania as I stood and gazed on a day not many years l>ack. Tbe floor was so old and ioncn tbnt n board broke under my w^elght, but the scene was as youug anil fresh as it had l>een in the days of Palue. As 1 looked upon it I thought of all be bad dreamed and suffered for humanity, and tbe face .of tbe river be loved seemed to shine back at me with tbe assurance that bis visions and sorrows were not In vaUi. Today 1 am a little way below Bordentown. but still on the bonks of tbe Delaware. There has been an autumn rain, and the wind is in tbe pines as It blows a patch of sunllgtit on the sky. So it seems to me the wind of tbe spirit is on my soul and the divine sunlight is breaking wltbln me, flllhiK me with tbe hope that I. too. whu have had my dreams, may l>e aIlowe<i to do somethlug for mankind, for I cannot look upon tbe beauties that God has spread out as a feast for my vision without wishing to express my gratitude In service to those he loves. Seeing Thiags. There is a man In England who In- shits that the world is flat. Perhaps be reasons on the old line ot tbe microcosm and the macnvosm: that bis brain In little Is a counteri<art of tbe universe at large, and he deduces Ihe flatness of the world from the flatness of Itls mentality. A philosopher In Chicago >:ocs a stop further. He says the earth is conclave; that It Is a hollow sphere and we live im tl>e Inside. It is a very peculiar universe, according'to tills concave scientist—a wheel within a wheel, the etrth an outer sphere and the heavens an inner sphere. This Is anotber case of tbe microcosm and tbe macrocosm. The man's bead Is full of wheels, and be reasons that the universe must be full of wheels also. This Is the age of fads. Every other man yon meet bas a l^obby. And eac-h ene of tbem is sure that bis particular Ism would cure all the ills that flesh M heir to. . Just give him a chance and be will run the world Into the millennium tiy lightning express. For example, one man is certain that mind 1s matter at rest, and he writes a txMk of two volumes to prove It. This might i)e made to explain why so many minds are shindlng still. The theory will hardly answer, however, for ail the other aclentlsts an Just as ceruin that nothing Is at rest. At the basis of world formation Is the musical tone, and be also writes a Ijook. That is the pity of it-tbey all write books. Arcbimede.<< s.aid If be bad a lever long enough he could move the World. This modern theorist goes bini one better.

STOVER AGAINST IT tocal Abstractor Doesn't tike the Torrns System of Real Estate Transfer. NEW TESTIMONIALS TODAY. Advertisement of Dr. McClellan Filled With New Matter.- There is considerable agitation among the abstractors of tlie state relative to the Torrens system of real estate transfers which is being promoted by parties in the western part of the stale. it seenis to he the opinion of abstractors in general that the system is not needed in Kansas. Captain Stover of the Stover Abstract eompany says that In his opinion the Torrens system Is a good thing fur cities like Chicago or Boston where number of the records have been lost or destroyed by fire, but that in the western part of the country where tbe most of the abstracts arc short not one in fifty would cost as much as the Torrens system. He also states that where the abstract is long, tedious and expensive, the Torrens system could probably be used to good advantage but that In the majority of cases the Torrens system would-be a tiseless expense. Tbe Installing of this system would mean a great expense to the state, and in the opinion of the abstractor would benefit only the owners of the copyright who are anxious to sell.
