It passes through the best coal country in Kansas. Keep posted as to what the people of neighboring townships are doing, by taking the WEEKLY JOURNAL. THE MAN ABOUT TOWN. The Man has heard several expressions of dissatisfaction with regard to the result of the convention's work last Saturday. Much of this dissatisfaction comes from persons who have the welfare of the University most deeply at heart.

They regret to see any man nominated as the head of the Douglas county delegation to the Legislature, who is not a Lawrence man, and a University man. The University wants money, and to get money there is need of a man in the senate next year, who can and will take the lead in energet'cally pushing the matter of appropriations. The Man agrees to all this, but cannot help speaking of the lack of action exhibited by these friends of the University, before the convention. Though it seems a pity that politics must at all have to do with the condition of the University for better or for worse, yet pity 'tis, 'tis true, and if the University desired to have any voice in the nominating of a State Senator by the predominant party in this county, it should have raised that voice prior to the time of holding the convention. Still the Man is confident that any man, Lawrenceite or Baldwinite, Republican or Democrat, who is loyal to Doug.

las county, must be loyal to the Univer sity. There isone habit, coming to be a most common one, about which the Man must protest. The other night while walking home in the -no gaslights -the Man was struck full in front by a fiendish blow, which all but laid him low. Unable to distinguish his assailant, and recalling to his mind all the stories of stealthy footpads and midnight assassins he had ever read, the Man put bimself on guard in the most approved style, placed his umbrella in rest, and advanced. A sudden obstruction, the foe retreated, and with a harsh, grating sound the gate closed.

This danger and two more similar attacks, safely gotten through, the Man arrived at his abiding place. But the remembrance of that walk of terror, and a peeled shin will remain with the Man as for a long time. The habit? Leaving gates open at night. Speaking of darkness and no gas lights, one thing is being slowly but surely impressed on the "Man's" excuse for a mind, and that is, that whenever the time rolls around when the moon is supposed to shine, and the gas lamps accordingly not lighted, the nights are inevitably cloudy, and reigns It seems to be a well established custom among the city fathers of our western towns in order to keep down expenses, to do away with the street lights during the time Luna is supposed to cast her refulgent beams over our fair state. In a city possessing as many heavily foliaged trees as does this, the moon is a poor substitute for street lamps, in fact, is no substitute at all.

And taking into account the first statement of the Man's which of course must be deemed infallible, the council should say "let there be more light." If the "watch dogs of the treasury" would turn their attention and energies to other avenues of saving, money could be found to keep our streets well lighted, and thus prevent the continual thieving and house breaking which at present agitates the mind of the holder in this fair burg. A Pioneer. Mr. J. F.

Tabor, son of the late C. D. Tabor, accompanied the remains of his father to this city. Mr. J.

F. Tabor is one of the oldest of Kansas pioneers. He came to Lawrence thirty-four years ago, when but one log cabin marked the townsite of our now prosperous-city. He was here during all of the early Kansas troubles, with Jim Lane, John Brown and the other wheel-borses. Mr.

Tabor remained here six years, then removed to Colorado, where he has lived ever since. Senator Tabor settled in Wabaunsee county, where he remained four years. He still owns a half section of land there. Mr. J.

F. Tabor is loaded with interesting bits of history and reminiscences. He passed through many an exciting struggle, receiving several severe wouuds in his fighting. for Kansas, and was one of the prisoners held at Lecompton. Mrs.

Mary Jennings, aged 54 years, wife of Wm. H. Jennings, died this morning at 6:30 o'clock of cholera morbus. The tuneral services will occur at 9 o'clock Wednesday morning, from the residence, 847 Deleware street. Mrs.

Jennings leaves as her surviving children, Mrs. Sophia Annis, of Chanute, and three small children. Friends of the family are invited to attend the funeral services. A Card. To the many friends who so kindly assisted us in the burial of our father and grandfather allow us to extend our heartfelt thanks, for the many kind and sympathetic acts toward usin this our time of bereavement.


AND MRS. W. H. Mors. Noticel Any one contemplating putting in a pump, water service, gas or steam work, or having any of the above repaired will find it to their advantage to call on us.

FOWLES BEASLEY, Water Works Plumbing and Pump Shop, 740 Massachusetts street. TWO QUEER SERVANTS. Decidedly Humorous Story from Central Russia. "You talk of having trouble with your servants, Courtenay, my said Captain Lansdowne, of the British Dragoon Guards, as he sat at the double window of his hotel in Moscow, watching the red winter sunset fade behind the great white battlements and green-tiled towers encircling the "Gorodskaya Tehast (city quarter). "Well, just you come and live in Russia for a year or two, and then you'll think all Western servants absolute perfection." "That's assented Mr.

Hiram Boyler, with a dry smile upon his keen American face. "I've engineered three railroads between this and the Volga, and I ought to know what sort of critters the Russians are." "But really, now, you know," expostulated Courtenay-who, as a new arrival, was being put through a course of Russian manners and customs by his two some of these stories that they tell about servants can't possibly be true. For instance, fancy anybody expecting one to believe that an officer's servant could bring his master two odd boots, and say: 'Faith, I don't know what's got into thim boots to-day. There's another pair downstairs in that very same scrape, "Well, I'm sorry to contradict you, old fellow," said the Captain, laughing, but it happens that I saw that done myself, and the officer was the senior Major of our regiment." And if you want a parallel case," chimed Boyler. "I guess we can accommodate you right away." So saying, he stepped to the door, and shouted into the passage: "Vanya!" (Johnny).

"Sei-tchass'1 (directly) answered a hoarse voice, and in came a short, square, low-browed fellow with a red calico shirt outside all his other clothes, and a face whose profound and placid stupidity was worthy of a Tartar idol. Bring two logs for the stove," said the American; "and mind that one must be longer than the other." Away plodded honest Ivan like a plow-horse, and returned presently with two split logs of unequal length. "Durak!" (fool), cried Mr. Boyler, with admirably feigned anger. told you to have one piece longer than the other, and instead of that you've got one piece shorter than the other!" Ivan hung his big head in confusion.

"So I have, sure enough. It's all my fault, barin' (master); "but I'll go and change it this moment." Well, cried Courtenay, as Ivan disappeared, "if there's another such fool as that in Russia, I'd like to see him, that's all!" "So you shall, in less than half a minute," said Captain Landsdowne, going to the door in his turn. (Mike). A hasty step was heard outside, and a tall, scraggy fellow entered, whose gaunt face had none of the stolid selfsatisfaction which marked the heavy features of Ivan. On the contrary, he wore a restless and troubled look, as if he were dimly conscious that he was a fool, and was always trying to find out how and why.

Were you pleased to call, Yury (George, son of Peter), asked he. "Yes; I want you to do a job for me. You know Pashkoff's store just across the street? Well, here are twentykopeck pieces' (silver coins worth about a dime). "Go and bring me twenty kopecks' worth of white bread and twenty kopecks' worth of Off went Michael on his errand, and Mr. Courtenay- could not imagine how any one could manage to bungle such a plain commission- greatly puzzled when a quarter of an hour went by without any sign of his return.

"Something must have happened to him, surely," said he at last. "I havent't the slightest doubt of answersd the Captain, with a sly smile, "and I can pretty well guess what that something is. Clap on your coat and hat, and come along. Pashkoft's isn't far off, and I'll be bound we shall find Master Michael at the door of the shop." There they found him, sure enough, with such an expression as might 1 be worn by a man who had just upset a plate of soup over his wife's new dress. He was scratching his head perplexedly with one hand while he held out two silver coins in the other.

"Oh, barin, barin," cried he, on seeing them, "it was written for me at my birth that I should be unlucky, and there's no escaping it." "Why, what's wrong?" asked the Captain, astonished with a side glance at nay's face. "I've mixed the two coins," swered "and Michael, in heart-broken tones, now I don't know which was the one for the bread, and which was the one for the cheese." Harper's Magazine. Easy to Please. The following dialogue shows that 8 very shrewd mother may have a very simple-hearted child. Probably the little girl took after her father.

Aunt- -Cod-liver oil is pretty hard to swallow, isn't it, Mary? Little Patient--It tastes horrible; but mamma gives me five cents every time for my savings-bank. Aunt- what do you do with the money? Little Patient Oh, mamma buys codliver oil with it. -Fliegende Blaiter. -There has been an increase of nearly one million native communicants to all the Christian churches in beathen lands during the past year.The Mission Field, OREAD GREENHOUSES FLOWERS ANDFLORAL DESIGN MRS.
