Few of the young lads who puff their cigarettes with so much apparent satisfaction, have any idea of the terrible physical and mental slavery to which they are subjecting themselves, The habit is far more difficult to cure than the tobacco habit and is prodnctive of several diseases which are almost incurable, Our attention was directed to this subject from witnessing recently the effects of the habit upon a youth of about 18, stunted in size and afflicted with rheumatism and heart disease until almost a physical wreck. Boys, don't use them, and if you ever have commenced, quit them, and you will live longer and happier. Quit before it is too late. John D.

A surprise was perpetrated upon Mr. and Mrs.

The Updike revival meetings in the big tent on East Sherman street and the meetings of the Salvation Army on South Main street are largely attended.

road now being built through the Hocking Valley coal fields and will probably not return for some time. This vicinity was visited by a copious downpour of that which quenches thirst, makes us clean and boosts the growing crops. The crops in Kansas never looked better than at present. The corn is shoulder high and of a beautiful dark green color. Kansas is in it this year, and her citizens rejoice thereat.

A heavy rain and wind storm visited this vicinity Wednesday night and the following day another rain came accompanied with some bail. The rains are coming along just about right for a bountiful hay and corn crop in Kansas this year. L. I. Brighton and wife and Jas.

Vance and wife went to Cameron Sunday on the Hutchinson Southern excursion. They took with them a camping outfit, fishing tackle, intending to put in a week of pleasure. Look out for fish stories after their return. Mrs. H.

N. Johnson is visiting friends in the eastern part of the state, which accounts for Hugh's long sleep these cloudy and rainy mornings. It takes the long, shrill, 7 o'clock whistles to rouse him. Kent Cook's young fruit trees and sweet potatoes must enjoy a healthy growth these rainy days, and they must certainly rejoice thereat. Killed by Lightning.

Stella, the little 3-year-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. T. H. Ford, colored, living at 118 West was struck and killed by lightning about 10:30 Thursday morning.

Funeral services were held Friday afternoon at 2:30. During the storm some of the neighbor's children were in the house: at the time and four children were playing near an open door. A neighbor boy by the name of Price was sitting just in front of the doorway, on the south, which opened on a porch, and Stella was standing on the door sill, facing him, with her left hand resting on his right knee when the flash came. He wore a straw hat and the lightning burned one side of it from his head and knocked the chair from under him. It struck Stella on the crown of her head, burned the hair from the back of her head and passed downward along the back of her neck.

At this point it appears to have divided into three parts, one passing around the neck on either side to the chest and the other down her spine. She evidently was not killed instantly for after falling she called, mama! mama! He clothing was torn to shreds and only appears to have been burned in a few places. Mrs. Ford was standing only a few feet from her child and was struck on the right limb just below the knee, the lightning passing downward, tearing the shoe from her foot. She said her foot did not look on the outside as though it was burned but felt like thousands of needles were sticking into the flesh.

The other occupants were all shocked more or less and did not fully recover for half an hour. There was six persons in the house at the time and the wonder is that they were not all killed. The house looks as though it had been struck from all sides, the windows and doors were all broken and torn to pieces, the plastering knocked from the walls, the chimney torn down, and taken all in all is very near a wreck. So far: as we know or can learn this is the first case of a person being killed by lightning in this city, and hope it will be the last. Two young ladies, delegated by an orphan's home in Chicago, arrived in the city last Saturday with five little parentless waifs for the purpose of seeking homes for them.

Twin boys about four years old were taken by G. P. Kopper, two children, one three years old and the other an infant, were taken by Peter Prairie Press. The Fourth Estate, published by Ernest F. Birmingham at 206 Broadway, New York, will be a great help to the newspaper fraternity.

Its editor, Frank H. Lancaster, stands high in newspaperdom and suggestions on the practical management of a paper are to be found in it from which we can all profit. Fourth of July Excursion.

IT WAS POOR ADVICE. A jeweler once told Mark Twain to hang a monkey wrench on the safety valve to prehis watch from gaining time. That, no doubt, was the very best advice the jeweler" could give. but if Mark could have shown his watch to MANTELE MENKE, the Leading Jewelers, at 104 North Main, he would have received much better advice.
