Empoeia, March 17. The annual catalogue has been prepared and will be sent to the printer in a few days. Miss McCabe. the collece librarian. has lately received a present in the shape of a very nice desk for her use in the library.

The seniors had anticipated obtaining a lecturer for commencement, but the faculty nag decided that they must deliver their orations. The base ball team has now got down to regular practice and is doing team work every other day. V. L. Partington and Roy Evans will do the battery work this year.

Tne last issue of College Life appeared with a new editor added to the staff, Albert E. Lake having taken tbe position of local editor. It waa found necessary to add another member to the staff on account of the amount of work for the students at this time of the year and also the sickness of the assistant editor. Amateur detectives have been quite numerous here during the past week trying to discover the parties who painted the sidewalk of the State Normal and ran off with the college bell clapper. The prize debate contest, which occurs in June between the two gentlemen literary societies of the college, has been arranged for by the faculty.

Two from each society are to be chosen, and the question is to be submitted to them one month before the contest. After three weeks of study on the question each debater is to decide by lot which side he will take. They will then have only one week to arrange their argument. Epch person is to be allowed two speeches. This is a new departure in the debating line at the collage, but it seems to meet with general approval.

Wind and Rain at Xeivtou. Special to the Capital. Newton, March 17. Abont 4 o'clock this afternoon clouds gathered in the southeast and soon a terrific wind swept down on this city from that direction. Many people were very much frightened, as the air became thick with duet.

So dense did the air become that one could searcely see across tbe street. The heavier part of the storm swept by to the west. A light rain fell after the dust storm had passed and later in the day, about 7 p. it began to rain again and promises to give a copious shower. About every cistern in the city is dry and most of the wells have reached a very low state, so a long continued downpour will be greatly welcomed.

Highly Successful. Special to the Capital. Washington, March 15. "Home, Sweet Home," a new comedy drama written by Judge J. R.

S. Bird of this place was presented before a large and highly pleased audience at the Opera House here Wednesday night. xne play was a surprise to everybody who witnessed it on account of its' hizh merit. Although put on by amateurs, it was generally conceded to be far superior to the average plays bow on the road. The judge has as attractive a piece of comedy drama as is on the stage, from any body's pen.

Much praiBe is due to the persons wno took the parts, and so successfully were they played that special mention of each is unnecessary. For Law Enforcement. Humboldt, Maroh 17. Com plaint was made to the attorney general reoently that the prohibitory law was being violated here. In response to the compiamt the attorney general directed the county attorney to inquire into the matter.

Accordingly Attorney Campbell has been here since Tuesday conducting an investigation, and haB sum moned before him nearly 100 men whom he examined under oath as to their knowledge of violations of the law dur ing the past two years. The examina tion is public and is attracting a (Treat deal of attention. It is likely that it will result in a wholesale cleaning out of dives and joints. Sous of Veteran Goard. Emporia, March 17.

A Resume of Current Politics in the Sixth District. Special to the Caktax. Norton, March 17.Republi-cans in the Sixth district are warming tip some, and when two or three or more of them are gathered together, politics la eure to be the topic of conversation. It see ma now that this district will not hare a candidate for governor, and pub-lio sentiment so far as can be determined has been practically, unanimous for Major Morrill. Ed Hoch has some frienda up here, but -it ia doubtful whether they will be able to civs hini any delegation or not.

For lieutenant governor this district will present the name of the "irrepressible" Webb ilcNall. Webb made a reliant fight for Congress in 1S90, for which hU friends claim he should be remembered. The republicans from the Sixth district will come to the state convention demanding his nomination. For state treasurer -this part -of the state will support Judge Otis Lj. 'Atherton of RusselL lie baa represented his county in the House for the last six years'.

He is immensely popular at home and always runs ahead of his ticket. Uon. J. S. McDowell of Smith county will have the united support of the Sixth district for secretary of state.

The captain ia an old soldier and has an extensive state acquaintance which his friends claim will help him materially when the convention meets. He came to Kansas shortly afttr the war and has been in business at Smith Center for twenty years. For attorney general this district has tio candidate. Pubiio sentiment up here appears to favor the nomination of F. B.
