After attempting to talce life of her husband, Bill Bay, Mrs. Lizzie Bay attempted to take her own life when arrested and placed in the jail at the police station last night by taking strychnine. She had smuggled the poison jail concealed in her clothes. Shortlv after she was locked up she called to Night Wlatchman Ilil- debrandt and told him she nad taken the drug. He called Police Surgeon Wallace and Dr.

Suwal- ski. They administered an antidote and she is now on her road to re- covery. Mrs. Bay was arrested last night by Policeman Bynan because she had attacked and dangerously wounded her husband with a razor. She cut two deep gashes across his stomach, after a heated quarrel.

She made no attempt to escape, Today a warrant is to be sworn out for her charging assault with intent to kill.

The complaint against Michael Gan non, policeman, was not read in tne council meeting last night, nor was it mentioned until after adjournment. Then Mayor Everhardy questioned the city 1 clerk, J. II. Kirmeyer, as to it and learned that he had referred it to the chief of police, J. A.

Cranston. Mayor Everhardy was anxious to have the charges made against the policeman disposed of at once, but as no official action could be taken, after the close of the session the matter was deferred until Monday night, when an adjourned meeting is to be neld. The council transferred $9,500 from the general improvement fund to the general fund. This places enough money in the general fund to pay the employes of the city and meet the current expenses.

They reached here over the Mis souri Pacific last night at 7:11 o'clock in charge of United States Marshal Will iam Morrissey of the eastern district of Missouri. The prisoners were met at the Union depot by Deputy Warden F. II. Lemon, who hurried them to the penitentiary where they were entered. Fighting the chargeB through every court possible, the final resort was cut off when last Monday the United States supreme court at Cape Girardeau handed down a decision in the case confirming the decisions of the rower courts.

The Ensonera, except William A. Woods, who ad previously been turned over to the federal authorities by his bondsmen, voluntarily went to St. Louis yesterday morning and gave themselves up to the marshal at theUnion depot at 9 o'clock. They started immediately for Leavenworth. C.

Who made the complaint of peonage I txli: against the Smiths has not been made public Mr. Shelby, who is interested in the case as a mend, said laat night every effort is being made to locate the source of the charge but that so far it has been kept socrot.

He said the first knowledge anyone had of the charge was when a United btatea marshal arrived at Sikeston and made the arrests Forty-four indictments were found Against the Smiths and tenants, but they were convicted on only one.

A TIMES AD DID IT W. W. Durflinger Advertised for Hogs zor ms arm and the whole County Responded From Thursday's Daily Times. W. W.

Durflinger of the Delnionico ho tel inserted a' want ad in The Times which appeared yesterday morning. He warned 10 ouy some brood soavs for hi: farm in Missouri. Before 9 o'clock ves terday morning he had more telephone calls than he could handle. By 10 o'clock he had bought what he Avanted and soon had them loaded for shipment. 'T.

PEONAGE PRISON IPBIL FOOLS' DAY; EVERYBODY fill Thousand "Fools" Were Stung on the Old Pocketbook Racket Cleverly Worked JOHNNIE ORTMAN WAS "IT" TOO Youthful Assistant at the U. P. Ticket Office Was Taken In By a Lady Friend Everybody Enjoys the Fun Once a Year From Thursday's Daily Times. "Stung." This was the all prevailing word yes terday because it was April fools' day.

All the tricks imaginable were played by those who inclined to indulge in this sort of fun, and they were not con fined to friends either. Perhaps the best trick was played on the public at large by clerks in E. C. Eads' pool hall on Delaware street. A pocketbook filled with paper was fasten ed to the street in front of the pool hall.

It was screwed tight so it could not be picked up. People passing noticed the pocketbook, stooped to pick it up, discovered it was fastened, looked sheepish, and slunk off amid jeers and the "horse laugh" by young fellows who stood in the doorways near to watch the fun. An old colored lady was meandering slowly down the street, saw the pocket-book, and made a grab for it. The pocketbook opened but in the excitement sue failed to see what it contained, and continued pulling. She would have jerked it loose had it not been for interference oy the crowd.

A well dressed lady who Avas evidently from the society class, pulled off the cleverest stunt, and got the biggest horse laugh. When she saw the pocketbook sue backed up to it, brushed her skirts over it, and reached down cautiously to pick it up. hen she discovered her error, she blushed and hurried on. The pocketbook was placed there early in the morning and it is estimated at least a thousand people got "stung" on it during the day. Men, Avomen and children alike bit freely.

Some got sore, others blushed, and many laughed when they found they had made a fatal mis take. So rich was the fun was croAvds stood near the pocketbook all day and Avatched the public "bite." i Ine telephone Avas used to a great ad vantage for the April fool tricks. Short- alter John Ortman, an assistant in the Union Pacific city ticket office, ar rived at his ofhee in the morning the telephone rang. Joseph D. Hurley, th'e answered the phone.

A sweet voiced maiden was at the other end and asked if Mr. Ortman was there. He was called. The s. v.

m. said: "Is this Mr. Ortman?" He assured her it A-as, where upon she told him to hold the phone a minute, lie stood there and held the receiver about five minutes when the sweet voice said: "Are you there?" Telling her he Avas the damsel replied: AH right, that aviII do for you." The police department also suffered. More than one bogus call Avas turned in when a policeman sallied forth only to find he had been "stung." Of course April fools day comes but once a year, and nobody gets sore. IF YOU DON'T MOW ASK THE LIBRARY It Is the Objct of the Officials There to Give Out Useful Information to Inquirers From Thursday's Dally Times.

It should be more generally understood that it is the business of the public library to answer questions. There are no "dream-books" in the collection by means of which you may foretell future events, and they cannot supply you with Crawford's latest story before it has been published; but if you need information as to what has happened or is happening, try and see whether you cannot obtain it at the library. Pupils of the public schools and club women use the library constantly to help them in their work. But to insure a proper development of the collection in all useful directions, there should be more calls from the real workers from puzzled mechanics and. housewives.

It is part of the work of the library to put every citizen in the way of a more intelligent performance of his daily work and a more intelligent enjoyment of his wholesome recreation. The young matron who was supplied the other day with a receipt for making a stain for hard. wood floors, went away well pleased. A book was recently purchased at the request of one who wihed initiation into the mysteries of raising goldfish. The boy who is raising pigeons will soon be made elad bv an up-to-date book on his subject.

Books are constantly being added to the collection in large or small quantities, as funds will alloAv, and in the absence of specific requests, it is often necessary to guess at what will be best adapted to the needs of the community. But certainty is better than guess work, and it is always a satisfaction to the book committee to know that the I books purchased are to satisfy expressed ucuiituus. as concrete examples, may be mentioned recent purchases along three several lines: useful arts, mustc scores, and books in the German language. The demand has not been as large as was expected for the first- two classes, but the German books have been much sought after. As a result there are likely to be no more large purchases of music and useful-art books, until a further supply of German literature ha3 been obtained.

The supply must follow the demand. Whatever your line is be it carpentry or cookery see that' it is adequately represented in the collection. In popular phrase, "It's up to you." The next time you "want to know," call in person, or write out your question on a postal card, and mail it to the library. (They have no telephone). You will receive a courteous and prompt at any rate, and very likely all the information you desire.

Thi Kind Yds Hats Always Bags The Toastmaster, Given Last Evening at the Crawford Grand, Had the Proper College Swing DIRECTED BY CHARLES B. LYNN Every Participant Gave a Good Interpre tation of Their Part Audience Was Large and Appreciative Play Was Successful From Thursday's Daily Times, Jn the minds of many people the amateur shoAV is just one of the necessary evils for which there must be a certain sum of money set aside.

Like every rule there are occasionally exceptions, Avhen someone has patience and ability to whip enough raAv material into shape to pre sent a show Avell worth the time and money. The Toastmaster, given by the High school last night, Avas one ot the rare exceptions. There was no one in the aud ience holding his breath Avondering JOHN FRANKS Who Appeared as "Bill Morgan. Avhether the hero would drop his false mustache or kiss the maid instead of the loA-elA7 lad a. This much can be said of Charles B.

Lynn. He knows Iioav to select an amateur plaA' and to select characters who carry their parts confidently and easily. lhose Aho especially distinguished therasehes in their various roles Avere: John Franks, Will DetAveiler, Belle Taschetta, Earle Sehiffer and Will Schott. Franks, as "Maggie," kept the audience in continual uproar, while Sehiffer as the professor counteracted the leA'ity by his extreme piety. Detweiler as the Toastmaster, Avas an ideal class president.

He is good looking and kneAV his part. Miss Taschetta as leading lady looked so pretty that one impetuous suitor in the audience couldn't stand it any longer ISABEL TASCHETTA As "Cynthia" in the Play Last Night. and "bubbled over" right in the midst of a most serious occurrence. Arthur Smith and Walter Lambert were the "bad" men; not villians, for it was all in fun you know. Both of them should be given blue ribbons.

Maynard Oliver was the hero's right hand man and in spite of advance notices plaved an exceptionally good part and didn't forget. Miss Hazel Stiles, the wife of the professor, had nothing to say, but she added dignity to the pertormance and everybody was glad she was in it. In every college there is one boy who wears swagger clothes and loud hose Harvev LePage in this part, was really the "candy kid." Last but by no means least was Will Schott. He played his part naturally admits that he asks as many questions off the stage as he does on. He made good and is the making of a star.

In a word the show was a success financially and practically and the credit is due to Charles B. Lynn who wants nothing for his services except the good will of those who saw the show. PUT THE BUS TO Agricultural College Experts Send Out Instructions to Embryo Farmers Who Want to Enter Corn Contest From Thursday's Daily Times. One of the best features of the Boys Corn Contest movement this year is the special work assigned to all boys from 14 to 20 years of age class as It is called. It is what is known as the ear-to-row test, to determine the yielding quality of several ears.

The agricultu ral college experts have found that there is a great difference in the yield from different ears, no matter if the ears look exactly alike. They say this difference in yielding quality can only be determined bv the actual test in a Dlot or field. We hope a great many boys of the county will undertake Now, the Farmers' Institute depart 8rfV 'sx rV Hi 's -s sW 4' ss vs 1 BREEDING CORN E3-E3 5:8 i FIREPROOF THROUGHOUT Boys' Corn contest, wants the boys from 14 to 20 years of age in the contest to the seed breeders of each county. Each boy is to take ten ears of corn, the best he can get, and plant them in ten rows, or if more convenient he may plant them in twenty rows. In this case he is really making two plots, planting one-half of ear 1 in row 1, and then half of ear 2 in row 2, and so on for ten rows, and then the remaining halves in the next ten rows.

In this ear-to-row contest the boys will be taking a very valuable lesson in corn breeding, noting in blanks the weight of the corn grown from each ear, per cent of germination in each row, and the general condition of each row through the summer. "When the tassels begin to appear the contestants should de-tassel, by pinching off every alternate row, to secure cross-fertilization, using the de-tasseled rows as the seed rows for the next year. To make a test for all ears the contestant should detassel alternate rows of tha double plot clear through; that is, detassel even-numbered rows on the first half of plot and odd-numbered rows on last half. In case he has ten long rows he should de-tassel half of each even-numbered row, and then at other end of plot one-half of each odd-numbered row. thus giving him seed rows from each of his ten ears.

He should also, during this ten or fifteen day period, de-tassel in the breeding plot all inferior stalks those too shore, too tall, too thin and spindling, those that have small root growth, those having suckers, and those that show sign of shoot barren stocks. If he does this, and it will not take much time, going through the plot about every two or three days for about ten daye, he will have some good seed corn. Then he should gather his best ears from his best stalks from the de-tasseled rows, some time between the middle of September and the middle of October, keeping separate those from different rows. Later, when he gathers the remainder of the corn, he should weigh the ears from each row, and dding the weight of seed ears gathered from each row he will have a record of the producing power of each ear. Then when he takes his corn to the show he should have each ear numbered and tagged, so that he will know whether it is a seed ear or not.

MORE BUILDING THIS YEAR THAN EVER BEFORE From Thursday's Times. "I do not know of any -pring when there has been more building projected in Leavenworth than now," said W. P. Feth, architect, yesterday.

"If all tho dwellings and buildings being talked of now," he continued, "are built this Him-mer the total in dollars at the end of the year will bo larger than it has ever been before. It appears as if the building boom of 100G is to be continued, only more extensively, this year. "Most of the buildings concerned which I have been consulted, are dwellings a great many of them cottages. Prosperity is shown more in building than in any other way." In 1906 more money was invested in building than for twenty years previous according to Feth's figures, but the boom collapsed in 1907. Many attributed this to the prohibition scare, which threatened to leave many buildings vacant.

That his fear has been assuagea is evidenced by the looked-for boom this year. A Reliable Remedy Ely's Cream Balm is quickly absorbed. Gives Relief at Once.
