Hia strong hold ia petti fogging around a question, and avoiding giving an opinion, Reaving the matter in a worsa muddla than it was before." KILL THE RUSSIAN THISTLE. Something About the Nature ot the Weed and the Law Regarding It. The Russian thiatla ia a plant now wall known to many Kansas people. It has reached a number of Kansas counties and ia rapidly spreading to others. It has grown to suoh an extent that the last legislature saw fit to pass a law pro viding for its extermination. To those who are unacquainted with the Mao called" thiatla a brief description of the plant might be interesting. It ia not really a thistle but is more of a tumble-weed, beginning, however, to roll about a month later. It germinates in May and June from the seed, sending up a slender red stem bearing two nar row green leaves about an inch long. These young shoots and leaves are tender and are eagerly eaten by oattle, ...

1SSJ 11 THE ADVOCATE, unable to sell her batter at any price, which makes the cow an expense in stead of a profit, and this condition with others makes the payment of the mortgage impossible. This is the case at present, idle machinery and a sur plus of products, and starving opera tives, stand facing the toiling farmer, with his half-clad family, bountiful harvests and unpaid debts, and all seem ignorant of the cause of their misfortune. The money owner, how ever, is happy. Where it once took the interest on $1,000 to buy his yearly bread, the interest on $500 will now more than do it. Where it once took the interest on $2,000 to clothe his family, the interest on $1,000 will now do it equally as well. In 1870, with money renting at 10 per cent., about fifty bushels of wheat paid the interest on $1,000; now with money at 7 per cent, it takes over lOOJbushels to pay it. In this statement lies the root of the whole trouble. One class of producers are, and for a long time have been, f...

His partner, Major Vance, half tamed in his swivel chair, g3ve an ex tra long pull at his pipe and said over the top of "Greenleaf on Evidence:" "Why let it be hopeless? Isn't it your business and mine to persuade one very tad man or twelve good and true ones that the right is always with our side?" "Certainly, but in thte case I should have to persuade them to go against law wad fact in order to do what'I believe to be right," Mr. Hildreth said, making himself horizontal by putting his heels upon his desk and tipping his chair as far back as possible. Again Major Vance vepoke through his bluo veil. . "Tell me all about it. Your client loosea as tnougn ne came out oi tne aric Has he got a claim for damages against Noah et aL?

Hawkins' eyes dropped; his face grew hard. He half turned away, saying over his shoulder: "Oh, well, do as you like. Ridgeley, the Overton place, lies about 10 miles out of town, on the Blackwood road. But you are not sure of finding the major at home except at breakfast So I advise you to go early, if you will in spite of me. " "Go I must and soon, " the other said, walking away.

This is best attained by having ! the hot water poured into a basin con tinually for two or three minutes. The hands must be allowed to soak for ful ly five minutes, and it is well, instead of soap, to wash the hands thoroughly in bran, which makes the skin soft and white. After the hands have been thor oughly cleansed the nails should then be attended to, says Harper's Bazar. With a piece of orange-wood stick' sharpened to a point, and a bit of jew elers' cotton rolled around the point and wet with the acid that comes for this purpose, every 'particle of dirt and stain should be removed. The hands must then again be washed, this time In warm, not hot water. Scissors very sharp and fine must then be taken, and all loose flesh at the side of the nails carefully trimmed.

Prominent Men Outside the Bailroad Hen's Organizations Favored That Plan Beckoned Without V' the Courts. Chicago, Sept. 1. The Times-Herald prints the following in ita news columns to-day: Ex-Major Hopkins, of this city, advised the great railroad strike cf 1894, which ended in such disastrous loss of property and life. This assertion .is made by George W. Howard, vice-president and ex-member of the board cf di rectors of the Amerioan Railway Union. Mr. How aid said to-dav: "Mayor Hopkins did advise Dabs to tie up the railroads and there are witnesses to prove it. It is the truth and the ex mayor cannot deny it. I remember the meetirg well. It happened in this way: The convention was in eeesion in Uiich's hall, and the question was how to bring Pullman to terms.

THE ADVOCATE. 6XP.4 POLICE OUTRAGE. rolkeman Gaines Kills a Highly Inspected Citizen. Monday night Patrolman Gaines . shot and killed Albert Cruger, who re sided at 1513 North Harrison. Gaines, accompanied by a man by the name of Schreiber, from Wabaunsee county, had gone to Cruger's house to arrest a man by the name of Bobbins who Schreiber alleged had stolen a buggy tongue from him. Schreiber was not an officer. Gaines had no warrant for Jlobbins nor for Cruger nor for anyone eke. It was not alleged that any crime of any degree was being committed at that time. No action was pending in any court any where against any of the parties except Gaines. No attempt was made to locate or identify stolen property. This police officer simply went there to arrest Robbins. He did not even wear a uniform, the regula tion hat was missing and no star was visible, liobblns resisted arrest, that U, he ran when Gaines approached. Gaines caught him, and as he brought him back, Cruger's mother, an eld...

THE ADVOCATE. DAWES' FOOL OPINION. Another Blunder Added to Ills Growing Collection. It is very evident to anyone familiar with the history of the Kansas militia that the opinion of the attorney gen eral in which he holds that the ex penses of the proposed encampment to be held at Emporia, can be paid out of the fund appropriated for "Active ser vice," has been made to order, is neither based on good sense nor law. Section 16, article 3, chapter 142, laws of 1883, which the attorney gen eral fails to quote in his opinion reads as follows: "The military forces of this state when in the actual service of the state, in time of war, insurrection, invasion or imminent danger thereof, shall, during their time of service, be entitled to," etc. This section clearly defines what actual service means, and that the leg islature intended to make the proper distinction between actual service and encampment duties, is shown in the fact that section 17 of the same law provides that when the militi...

THE ADVOCATE. 5 Boomerang Law. Ik is now universally admitted by atu dents of history and politioa that if Eog land had been victorious in the war for indapenceshe would have lost her lib erties in keeping her colonies. George III. did not know much, but ha knew that the principle of no taxation with out representation and of local self-government would have to be yielded in England if yielded in America, and he fought with the desperation of a giant who felt that the very foundations of his throne were in danger. The reform bill of 1832 and all the reform bills that have followed were the victories the English people gathered from their defeat at Yorktown. In that particular and to that extant the English people escaped the greatest peril that can threaten the prosperities or the ;iibertiea of a nation. History proves nothing it not that no people can safely hold another people in subjection. The longer the denial of the rights of the negroes continued the mora arbi trary grew the ...

c THE ADVOCATE. 8XP. i A BFEDEN AND A DISGBACE. . Had there been such a disgraceful condition of things existing in Topeka two years ago as is now attributable to the metropolitan police force, there is no telling what the indignant populace would have done. The local and East ern papers would have been filled with denunciations of populist methods, and the policeman who escaped tar and feathers would have been much betterthan the average of the present force. To make the best of it, the metropol itan police system is a gigantic impo sitiona relic of Kansas' days of po litical vice and corruption. Yet there is no reason why the indulgence of the people should suffer it to continue as it Is going. The governor appoints a board of police commissioners who may employ a small army of lazy, dis honest scoundrels, and say to the city, "you foot the bill." The present force is not composed wholly of the disreputable element, but too largely so. If a merchant or any shop-keeper wants any at...

1835. 0 THE ADVOCATE. GAINES SHOULD GO. Opinions of Some Prominent German-Americans. The feeling against Police Officer Gaines is increasing rather than di minishing. The Germans of the city are getting ready to take the matter up and insist that such outrages as were perpetrated in the Cruger and Etzel cases are not permitted to take place again. Mr. John Schmidt, of the Kansas Packing house, and secretary of the local German league, in speaking of the Gaines affair said to a reporter: "This man Gaines ought not to be on the police force. Eels not the right kind of a man. I have lived here a long time and I know a great many policemen who have been on the force for years and years and it has never become necessary to abuse and pound inoffensive citizens with their clubs." Oscar Bischoff said: "AH this trouble was caused by having a hot headed policeman go to make an ar rest. I have talked with these women and they tell me they made no effort whatever to resist the oflicer. They cou...

Suddenly her form grew rigid, she threw a hand above her head and said in a hoarse whisper, punctuated by gasps: "Go away, master; go away! You are dead, dead! I never touched your pa pers." Major Overton took her hand in a hard grasp and said close to her ear: "Who took them, Jincey?" No answer. The rigid figure tottered, would have fallen but for his support Suddenly it slid out of his hands to a writhing heap at his feet, and out of it a smothered voice'cricd, with still the note of mockery: "Overton claim!
