D. C. For the past ten months Mr. Adam has been connected with the United States geological survey, and has been doing work in Texas and the Indian territory.

Faculty-Sophomore BiBlcet Ball Game The most lively and hotly contested game of basket ba 1 of the season was played at the rink on Saturday evening be tween the faculty and sophomore teams of the arts school; the result at the end of the second half being 6 to 6. As soon 1 as the ball was put in play by Umpire Emley, both sides seemed determined to do their best, and it was not until after several minutes of play that a goal was made by Clark of the faculty team, after which a speech was demanded by the audience, to which he did not respond. The game was almost free from fouls, only three being called. one against Naismith and two against H. Owens. When at the end of the game the score was a tie, it was announced that the side scoriog the first goal would win the game, and after a few minutes of snappy playing ths goal was made by H. 0ens, thus securing victory for the sophomores. During the entire game, great enthusiasm was manifested by the audience and when a point was made by either sids they expressed their enthusiasm with shouts of encourage-neat. It is safe to predict that a few such games as this will greatly increase the interest in the game. SUITS $15.00. PANTS $4.00. 0. P. LEONARD. FINE 745 Mass. St TAILORING. Lawrence. Kan 9 C, L.

Bowersock returned this noon from a short trip to Washington. Mr. Bowersock has not taken his seat in congress yet, but the term of his predecessor expired with the adjournment I of congress Saturday, and. Mr. Bowersock will take bis seat as soon as there is another session. The purpose of Mr. Bowersock's trip to Washington was to become acquainted with the departments, and the methods of doing work through them, in order that be might be able to take up that sort of work with little delay when again called to the capital. He , called on the president while away, and saw most of the department officials, so that he feels that his trip was not without results. Mr. Bowersock was present at many of the most interesting-sessions of congress, and was as attentive a' he could be with his other work, in order that he might learn the ways of the legislators of the nation. There is little probability, in Mr. Bow ersock's opinion.of an extra session of con- cress, and be will not take his seat as a congressman until next December. While away he heard little democratic talk of making silver an issue for the next cam paign, but is convinced that anti-expansion extravagance of the present congress, and the little return from the Philippine con quest will be the topics of the next na tional campaign. The trip to Washington was a very sat isfactory ooe in every way for Mr, Bower sock, and he succeeded in getting plans on foot for many things that are wanted by the people of the district though he ad mitted that it was easier to get garden seeds for his constituents than offices. AMUSEMENTS. Bobby Gaylor. the well known Irish comedian, is coming and it is said will bring with him one of the best comedy or ganizations now traveling.

The University basket ball team re turned from Topeka Saturday afternoon. 1 he bovs are enthusiastic in their praise of tbe hospitality and kind treatment accorded them. The defeat sustained by the home team aroused no ill feeling in them, but served only to intensify their evident desire to make the visit of their opponents as pleasant as possible. As a parting evidence of their good will, Mr. Hulse, one of tbe players, presented the Kansas University boys with a boquet of beautiful cut flowers. Tbe spirit of true sports manship that animates the Topeka players is highly commendable and worthy of emulation - Many young men about tbe streets have a very obnoxious habit of using tbe open stairways along the street for loafing places and other purposes, to sucb an ex tent that property owners are beginning to complain vigorously of the nusiance com mitted, and arrests are likely to follow if tbe practices are not discontinued.

Harvey ot the Lawrence, company of the Twenty-third Kansas, will be read with interest. Since tbe letter was writen the dispatches say the command has started for the United States, but the news contained is as of much interest as though this were not the case: San Luis, Cuba, Feb. 21st To the Editor or the Journal: Today still finds us in sunny Cuba. We have made preparations and are ready to move, but as yet no transport has come for us. There are all kinds of rumors. It is said that the "Minnewaska" is on her way to the states for the Fifth U. S who were to come here, got stranded on a reef. No reason is given for tbe non arrival of the "Chester" which was to take the Eighth Illinois. The head officials don't seem to know what is the matter. We are begin ning to think perhaps the trouble in Manila has caused the delay, or perhaps it has dawned on the war department that there is no reason or excuse for bricging us home just now to encounter the extreme cold weather now prevailing in the states. Much sickness and death would surely fol low. We hardly expect to leave before tbe 1st of March now, though we may. Sugar making is the order of business here now. There are several large mills near here; the sugar cane crop is light as it has not been cultivated very much since the beginning of the war. Many of the poor Cubans live altogether on cane; they carry a stalk of cane just as Americans carry a dinner pail. Those who work in the cane field rarely eat any thing else. Many huts have been built around the country near: and farming . begun. We are eating fresh vegetables all the time. While business is better than it was, it is practically at a standstill because of the uncertainty of ths form of government that is to be bere; and tnere will be no change until the United States announces some definite policy as to tbe future gov ernment of the island. Considerable plundering and murdering is going on in tbe interior, by Cuban bandits. On a large sugar plantation near here, soldiers are stationed in the held to guard tbe stock and preserve peace be tween the Jamaica laborers and the na tives. . I had a pleasant call from Char'es El well this evening. He is well and looks well. He was on his way out in the mountains, looking after business inter ests. All of the Lawrence boys were pained to learn of the killing of Lieut A. C. Alford in the battle at Manila. We anxiously await the pa pers to see if there are others. The weather here is dry and hot. Tbe thermometer registers from 80 0 to nearly qo 0 . lust tbink of us . coming home where the thermometer is below zero! It makes me shiver away down here. Tbe boys like tbe idea of coming home, but not when it is so cold. The suspense we are undergoing now is very painful. We do not know when we will be ordered to break camp. The regiment is in very good shape, Lawrence boys who are sick are improv ing and should we stay here ten days tbey will all be able to travel and return with us. The Bowers bov who - was the worst is up every day now and is improv ing fast. Yours truly. S. A. Harvey, Capt. Twenty-third Kansas voluteers, JOHN STANDING COAL. WOOD, HAY AND FEED.

THE CLOSE OF LIFE, They were driving slowly, and' he had been bending down to examine a creaking front wheel of the rather dilapidated rd wagon in which they sat; and, as h Dent thus, the thought came to her for the hundredth time that John was failing, was feebler than he had been. As he sat up the scarce broken filly shied over again? the shaggy old mule on her own stdi, and she noted with relief how firmly John's twisted fingers held- the rustic rope lines. and that the old buggy whip, reserved onij for those Sunday drives, csme with a sure, strong stroke across the glossy little cra tnre. Thev were coming home from church, the new Methodist church, this bright spring midday, and the warm cun glowed down disasreeably overhead and facilitated the disintegration of the dust clods in the long. white country road. It was gooJ, Annie, lie done well lor a young man, saia we 01a man siowij , who-out looking at her, for his eyes were gating over the fields they were passing, hcIJa ol hundreds of rows of tiny cotton plants. Yes, he is a better speaker than bis fa ther were. But, John, I led tne loniier lor bavins heard him." I ve been thinking, John 1 sat there, vou know, and I were think ing-" "Well, Annie!" "Onlv. John, that if you fell ill, or I, you know" not willing to alarm him "and if one of us should die we've lived o long together it would be hard. It will surely be lonely for one of us some time, you know. with no one, and without the other. Thev drove on in silence. They had lived their whole lives together, and a peaceful, loving friendship hal brought them into such close sympathy they often sat together lor long intervals without speaKing. iter free was smaller than his own; but, so much alike were thtir faded features, vtn a stiarger would have guessed them brother and fcister. - Presently lie got out to open tbe big gate that let them into their own dbck yara. It was rather a small house, t.ut it was the onlv home either had ever known, ana was made precious by lifelong familiarity nd association. Sh? was glad, yet almost sorry, too, as she sat rocking and listening on ine low gal lery. It hadibeen her idea, suggested some how away back in the spring oy tnai sermon, to have somebody come and help them and live with them, and make a "family.' And from Missouri Mary a son had written tlmt he was willing; that his wite naa "taken to it at once, and that they had two children. . lie was Sister Mary s only son, and Mary had diled long ago in Missouri, and the boy had never seen them. It was natural ne should have asked: "How many acres are in the farm?" and if they were "mortgaged up;" not understanding that they were two poor old people offering him a wealth of love. She was going to give them her "best room," a sort o parlor, and she went and stood in the doorway of the low, large room, looking lovingly into the cool interior. Already she half felt that she had done wrong to ask these strangers to come and make their home there; that she and John, who had lived so long quietly together, were happier perhaps alone. When she reached the gallery again she was coughing, and her mouth was moist with the blood that had come so often it had ceased to alarm her. She looked thin, and old, and frail, beT white hair and glasses glistening in the sun rays. She waa "set in her ways" and "sickly" and "old maidish;" but, for all that, her heart was hungry and sick for companionship, some one to love them her and John It was October, and Nell stood looking out of tbe window, her pretty face glowing from a recent nearness to the stove. "Sweetheart," she said lovingly to her husband, "this is the first house we have ever owned, and now 1 want you to buy me some pretty roses and cut away those scraggy bushes in tbe fronbysrd. That old cloth of gold hardly bore a perfect bloom; besides, it's unhealthy to have vines on ths house." Something large and hard seemed to come up in Aunt Annie's throat; but before sbe could speak she was glad to hear John aay, sternly, if somewhat huskily: "No, Philip. Thab vine was given me when a youth by my one sweetheart. She is dead, and yon must not cut it down, sir. And the other flowers are Annie's." The young husband and wife exchanged glances, and when one of them spoke it was to change the subject. I But Aunt Annie felt that the something in, her throat grew bigger; the "tight" feeling seemed to occupy her entire left side. When the children had come in and supper was over, Aunt Annie noticed how cheery the lirtle family looked. But John sat apart, ilent, resting heavily on his elbow, his bead leaning on one hand. I PerhaDS he was bowed by' a rush of old memories, and sat recalling tbe sorrow that had so long blighted his life. I She went over, and did a thing she had not done for years kissed John good night upon tbe forehead, and then, ashamed at this display of foolish weakness and tenderness before these strangers, she almost ran to her room. She undressed hastily, but had scarcely turned down tbe light before a faint salt taste was in her mouth. Although conscious of little pain, she felt a great weak ness coming over her, a great) pressure over her breast. She pushed off the cover and called faintly. Across tbe hall the younger child was crying, and its voice seemed to drown her own. She lay still for what seemed a long time, tbe blood wetting ths pillow and darkening the clean-white sheet. Presently the door opened softly and a rough old hand closed over her own. 1 "Annie" his voice was low and it sounded far off-" Annie!" ' She tried to speak, and, failing, would have raised her head in acknowledgment of his presence. But the blood gushed warm and thick and she sank back coughing, dying, strangled in her own life blood. And the hard, bent fingers clasped hers closer, and to the ears of the dying woman came faintly the sound of the old man sobbing. It was spring; the rose still grew on the gallery and was holding to tbe sunshine a hundred bursting faint gold buds. Nell bad never alluded to it again; indeed, tbe entire front yard seemed fallen into pitiable neglect. A sow had torn off a loose board, and her pigs, half concealed by tbe wet grass,' were grunting and rooting among some lily bulbs. The children, "forbidden" to go on the front gallery, peered curiously around the door facing, alternately pushing one another out and scrambling within the open door again. "What's uncle doing, stooping down there by the fence?" said or.e child. "Mending it," answered the older. "Ain't be been there a long time!" Tbe nephew, passing, looked out. Noting the stillness of bis uncle crouched in the rickety fence corner, he went out to see what was tbe matter; then he called gently to his wife that be bad found tbe "old man" dead.
