Martin received small public document from 1 the governor of Iowa containing a list of pardons and commutations issued by Governor Larrabee, some of which were on conditions that the person pardoned shall hereafter in all respects demean himself as an orderly and law abiding citizen, abstain from the use of intoxicating liquor of every kind; that he shall not be the frequenter of saloons, gambling houses, etc. Upon the vioation of any of the above conditions it is provided that the governor may revoke such commutation or pardon, and by his warrant order and direct the return of the prisoner so pardoned, or whose sentence is commuted to complete the full time of his sentence. These conditions are of course accepted in writing by the person liberated. In each and every case where Governor Martin has pardoned or commuted the sentence of persons convicted of violation of the prohibitory law at least, he has imposed conditions similar to those referred to above. Under the provisions of the laws of this state, the governor may prescribe such conditions as he may deem proper in granting a pardon or in commuting a sentence, but if the person pardoned upon certain specified conditions shall violate such conditions, there is no law providing for such re-arrest.

Governor Martin therefore recently addressed the attorney general upon this subject as to whether he has any authority to order and direct the persons so the conditions of his pardon or commutation to be subject to the full performance of his original sentence. The attorney general replies that the governor has the full power to revoke the pardon and can have the man sent to prison again. At Deer Creek, eight miles southeast Topeka, on the morning of February 16, Oliver P. York, aged 24 years, 1 month and 15 days, died after one week's illness of typhoid pneumonia.

He leaves a widowed mother and two sisters to mourn his loss. He was a Veteran's son, his father dying in the army when Ollie was but 5 weeks old. Funeral services were conducted by Rev. E. S.

Riley, of North Topeka. The stricken family desire to return thanks to the numerous friends for their kindness and sympathy in this great affliction. M'ille Rhea. The apperance of an actress of the name and reputation of M'lle Rhea should be an event not only for theatre goers to anticipate with pleasure, but one they should avail themselves of. She will present the original Pariaion version of "Frou Frou" at the Grand opera house on Tuesday evening next and have the support of an excellent company.

The Buffalo courier of December 2 Rhea's superb equipment for the role of Frou Frou has been recognized from the first; and having in mind the performance of her great sister in art, Sara Bernhardt, as well as that of some American actresses, the thought that only a French woman can adequately play Frou Frou, rceives new enfor coment after viewing each representation. The volatile spirit of effervescent girlhood playing, as a lambent flame, over feminine sensibility, and gradually developing into the intenser feelings of a profound womanhood, presents itself with peculiar sympathy to the Freneh temperament. It is easy to preceive that MIle. Rhea has fathomed the soul of the character with unerring instinct, and her impersonation has the triple charm of facinating personallty, spiritual significance and artistic embellishment In its lighter moods she is piquant and delightfully buoyant, while there is no want of feeling or force in the situations freighted with emotional stress. The effort was accepted at its full worth as many a round of applause, peal of laughter and still more eloquently, many glistening eye testified."

MERRIL'S MINERAL SPRING. What Colonel Huntoon Says About This Wonderful Water. My grand daughter, "Ruth Huntoon" ever since her birth, over nine years ago, has had scrofula, which in addition to its general debilitating effect on her system caused granulated sore eyes, and for much of the time in the past few years, the room she occupied had to be darkened. Many predicted the loss of the sight of the little sufferer, and after using the usual remedies for a long time without any apparent relief, we resorted to water treatment by drinking freely and bathing frequently from the Merrill Mineral springs a few miles south of Topeka. From the start she found relief and now is attending school regularly in good health and with eyes almost entirely resored to strength and soundness.

In drinking this water myself I found almost immediate relief to annoying kidney troubles, for which I believe it is almost a specific. I have no doubt what ever of the remarkable healing qualities of the Merrill Mineral spring, which has so recently been known to possess such rare and well combined medical constituents.

Call and try the water. Wm. Fritz, of Mission township, was brought to the city yesterday and placed in jail, in default of payment of a fine of $25 and costs, assessed against him by Justice Thomas Clark, of that township, for the larceny of a load of hay. It seems that several parties in that township have been missing quantities of hay recently. Suspicion was directed to Fritz, and he was apprehended with a load of hay, bound for the city.

He has been loading the hay in his wagon at night, and bringing it to the city the next day and disposing of it. SAY!
