Tb.3 Construction of an Electric Line Wl.l Damage Water Pipes. Prof. L, I. Blake of Kansas university. who has spent considerable spare time in Kansas City within the last two years, in- estimating the destruction of tbe water system pipes caused by the electric action resulting lroni the construction of electric lines in tbe city, brought to Lawrence Saturday some specimens of pipe tbat had been eaten away. One section bad places so so(t tbat a knife could be easily run through tbe pipe. Under pressure this would cause the pipe to burst, and considerable damage might re-su t. The particular piece of pipe brought up from Kansas City bas been down eight tears, but the electric action can be de tected as early as four months after the pipe bas been put down. - Prof Blake says tbe same thing will happen with the Lawrence wat er conduit system after the construction of electric lines in this ci y, the electricity destroying the pipes in the same manner that the p'pes in Kansas Oity end other large places are destroyed. So far there has been nothing found to prevent this destruction, but Prof, Blake and other scientists are working the subject with that end in view. Notice of the close of the registration books for tbe fall election appears in tbe tbe Journal. This will serve as a reminder tbat a great many of tbe voters in Lawrence are not registered, and will not be able to vote in November if this matter is not attended to very soon. John Seaman s bouseon tbe north end of Indiana street caught fire about 7 o'clock last night, and the department was called out. The fire was extinguished be fore the house has entirely destroyed, but the loss by fire and water will be consider able. - - Those suffering from chronic diseases where other methods bave failed, are in vited to call at tbe Magnetic Institute, 634 Louisiana street.

KANSAS WON THB GAMB. Ottawa Scored Against the Varultv ' Team on a Disputed Decision. The Ottawa university football team scorch against the Kansas university team in the game played Saturday afternoon on McCook field. Tbe score was made on a disputed decision, very near the close of the game, and was the first to bave been made aeainst the Kansas team this fall, The . ball was about twenty Yards from tbe Kansas goal when tbe OL tawa team scored. Kansas had the ball. and gave it to Moore to advance, which be failed to do. In failing be lost the ball on a fumble, according to tbe decision of the officials, and Gill of Ottawa, secured it, and made a touchdown, and en easy 'goal followed. The Kansas men had called down, but their contention availed nothing. Th came was a clean one. but was almost too one-sided to be interesting, Kansas scored" frequently and without much difficulty. The final score of tbe came was 20 to 6 in favor of Kansas. Tbe strong players for Kansas were Avery, Tucker and Moulton, and for Ottawa, Evans, Gill and Lambertson. Hess played center for Kansas in place of Mehan, whose knee was wrenched last week, and in the last half Moulton was put in Avery's place, Cates in Gavin's place and Algie in Lucas' place.

Miss Morse stood at the head of the list of clerks at the recent civil service examination held in Lawrence, Much merriment was caused this morn ing by the hauling of one of the old street cars down Massachusetts street, by four mules. Tbe reason for this action was no more apparent than other actions recently taken by tbe new owners of the street car line. Rev. Dr. Bamford, the new pastor of the First Methodist church, preached his first sermons yesterday, and made a very pleas' ant impression with his congregation, There was a big flight of ducks this morning, and hunters who were fortunate enough to be out, found shooting along the river. good sport in The street cars were run into the barn last night after tbe last trip, and tbe oper ation of the mule car line became a thing of the past. A big gang of workmen was still tearing np the old street car line rails this morn ing, but tbat js all the work that is being done now. .

The Journal knows just as much as any one else about it, and just as little. It knows tbat the old iron is being taken np and sold, and it knows there is no other iron or steel to take its place. It is certain that we have no street car line; whether or not we shall ever bave one is a quesiion that only time can settle. If Mr. Winner builds one it will be because be wants to build it, and. not because he is in any way bound to do it When he shall have laid down two rails he can then let the matter rest for ninety-eight years and more, before be turns his band over, and still retain the franchise. Tbe city is at tbe mercy of Mr. Winner. If ha- treats us well, we should be happy; if he kicks us, we have no recourse, and most smile as though we liked it.

None Better for a Nickel, The Message of Pictures The citizens of Lawrence are soon to have an opportunity of seeing a fine collection of reproductions of famous works of art. As such chances rarely occur, it is to be hoped that many will avail themselves of the privilege thus presented. There is perhaps no higher pleasure than that derived from the study of pictures. At first it may be rather a meaningless pleasure, a mere enjoyment of beauty, form, outline and color. But after a time, inevitably, the reason for the enjoyment is sought out and answered. Why is the picture beautiful? Wherein resides its value? And with tbe answer coma growth aid judge-msntand taste. Good pictures are like good books. Tney worthily represent thoughts, facts and experiences of life. In pictures a most worthy object is psrpetn-ate beauty. ' For example, a pictare of a buoch of roses can never suggest more than actual roses, color, form, and possibly a faint rem niscencs of odor. The beauty idea is the predominant one. If we understand that the roses have been priated effectively, that they represent beauty, that they have been painted with adherence to truth, we have gotten all tbat is to be gained from the picture. Landscapes have their valua in adherence to the facts of nature, veracity and beanty. But the highest kind of 'art is not to be found in landscapes. Oaly where the human face is represented can the highest result be attained. The human face records emotions, feelings, suSarings, joy.ove, hate, hope or despair, those common feelings which we may all understand and interpret. The absolute value of a picture consists then, in its ability tq transmit some idea worthily, often with beauty, but always with veracity. When we see and understand the thought of an artist, we have begun our artistic education, tbe education of our judgment ia selecting elements of beauty, fact of life, tiuth to form and outline, the real thought in tbe picture. No one who is surrounded by good pictures can long remain sensible to their valua. Good pictures are unconscious educators, and silent teachers of beauty, truth, human experience and lov-liness of nature. The child mind is pe- ' culiarly susceptible to the valne of these silent lessons, and it is j possible to render education doubly valuable by the addition ot these silent teachers to our school rooms. - The child who sees only tbe best pictures will develop taste, and acquire judgment unconsciously, and he will learn lessons of the beauty of the world about him, which in its way is quite equal, if not superior, tq the lessons which he gets from his book. He will get something which will make life less dull, commonplace and hamdrum, and this, tbe textbooks do not always succeed in teaching.
