Traveling Man Expresses Appreciation of All- Night Duty at P. 0. of allnight service at the Manhattan postoffice was expressed by a traveling man who made the city his week-end stop recently. When he learned that he could mail a letter at the local postoffice at any time of night and that it would go off on the first train reaching he city, he had only words of praise for the Manhattan office and the service it gives the public.

A business man can thus mail a letter to Kansas City, at night and it will be at its destinaion before the Kansas City firm opens its doors the next morning. ADVERTISED TOO EARLY.

Some of the Kansas oil companies, have made big finds and their success FisT been' listed acordingly.

Others Have tried to copy after them and indicate a sure thing before the oil or is really struck. Some of the companies, to be sure, have not been advertising any given dividends where oil is not yet found," but they have been allowing their stock salesmen make certain guarantees to prospectIve purchasers, it is said.

A SO SALE WAS GOOD.

Fo S. Engle Son's Offering Brings Good Money. Abilene Reflector: The unfavorable weather Wednesday did not interfere with the big sale of Holsteins at the E. S. Engle Son farm west of Abilene.

About 200 men were in attendance and the bidding was spirited. The offering included 39 cows and heifers and all were of the best dairy type of high grade Holsteins. The highest price paid was $207 and the lot averaged $147.70. One buyer resold his purchase at an advance of $15 before leaving the farm. All the purchasers were more than satisfied with their animals and think they got the best dairy types on the market.

Fifteen head sold were young animals from the Navarre herd of the Engles, which probably reduced the sale average. The highest average paid in Nebraska for grade Holsteins is $162 and it is believed that the average of this sale would. have been higher than these figures counting only the Sand Springs herd.

LET LYDIA DO IT. Dr. Lydia DeVilbiss, the better baby expert, is quoted as saying that Kansas has 30,000 persons incompetent of proper parentage.

She says that conditions are appalling and that the state must do something to meet this condition by providing for the care of these persons and by stopping the bringing of children into the world by such people. Why would it not be a good idea to place this whole (baby business from start to Inish in hands of Lydia?

It is unusual also because this country was formerly a large importer of Russian leather.

Burns, who is said to have come to the home from Kansas City, was a poculiar character and often went into his room during the afternoon and locked the door.

The old building at the home was originally built as the Dewey hotel and for many years was a famous summer resort. Some years ago it was purchased by the Kansas Rebekahs and Odd Fellows and converted into a home.

It contained 55 sleeping rooms in addition to the other rooms in the building. At the time it was built it was said to have cost $50,000 and it had always been kept in good repair. A year ago a new fire proof building was erected to which all the children in the home were transferred. The fire yesterday is supposed to have started from sparks from the power plant, which was only about thirty feet from the big building. The wind was blowing 35 miles an hour and the big frame house burned rapidly.

Within an hour the entire structure had fallen in. The 22 visiting Odd Fellows were Inspecting the grounds for the purpose of locating a playground and were the ones to discover the fire. They rushed. to the building and began carrying out all of the invalids and assisting the others from the building. The old people were taken to to the children's home last night where they are being cared for temporarily.

The building cost about $800, the local expenses, including the Janitor, fuel and printing close to $200, and when the call came for money to recompense the evangelist, Dr. Ostrom, people responded with.

cheeks ranging from $100 to $10, which when figured up amounted to $1,800. Out of this the evangelist pays his singers, perhaps $50 per week each, his board and other expenses. The local expenses were paid for two weeks ago and no collection has been taken at the tabernacle in that time, save the final call for the evangelists. Mr. Nicolay, who furnished the lumber, takes it back at a depreciation of $2.50 on the thousand for all except what had been cut.

Work began today at the tabernacle, returning the seats, taking off the roof and in a few days the whole building will be back at the yards or sold to different parties.

It has a great meeting and much has been accomplished by the united efforts of the churches. GAVE EVANGELIST $1,800. A PERMANENT ROAD SURVEY. Start on Highway From Kansas City to Topeka Is Made. Lawrence, Nov.

Weekly Market Letter. Kansas City Stock Yards, Nov. Last week's trade in killing cattle was fairly satisfactory, but stockers and feeders lost 15 to 40 cents. Receipts today dropped to 9,000 head, probably les: than half what the run would have been except for the embargo on shipments, out, put on pending outcome of investigation of suspected cases of foot and mouth disease in shipment of cattle received here from Nebraska last Wednesday. Killing grades sold strong to 15 higher today Hogs sold about steady, sheep and lambs steady.

In killing cattle buyers took everything solid, starting at the Exchange building and working in all directions into the cattle yards. Steers sold from $6.50 to cows, $5.50 to canners, $4.60 to $5.20. Several trainload lots of canner cows were offered. Packers seem to need large amounts of beef, and they have been short of canner material here for several weeks. A single packer brought in 55 carloads of canner cows from Chicago in the last three days to be killed here.

Shippers with cattle nearby seeking inside information today were told to have them here tomorrow or Wednesday, prospects favoring a good market for killing cattle those days. Cattle in the stockers and feeders class that arrived here from western Nebraska last Wednesday, showed symptoms of a disease resembling foot and mouth in some ways, and shipments out of Kansas City were stopped Saturday, till it is determined that the disease is not foot and mouth, probably Wednesday. Hog receipts were 10,000 head; market strong at the opening; top $9.90: late sales weak; bulk $9.40 to $9.85. The market shows intermittent strength, and all indications point to higher prices. Receipts are beginning to fall off, and with the immense existing demand for meats and pork product, stronger competition is sure to develop, which means higher prices.

Besides hog prices are inadequate, either compared with beef or lamb, or as based on prices listed in board of trade reports. Quality is improving, and weights were nine pounds heavier last week than two weeks ago. Funeral of Mrs. Willard Devinney. (From Tuesday's Dally.)
