He pleaded guilty and was paroled. He gave his occupation to the police as "journalist and politician," and said that he was a friend of Col. Theodore Roosevelt. There was no positive identification, but the accused gave out this statement: "It is as unnecessary as it is futile to deny gossipy stories of intoxication, At Unpenning we had an example of that sort of rot. I spent the evening on the train with Mr. Runnells, President of the Pullman Company, and an old friend of mine, we later were joined by some of the train crew with whom there resulted a discussion which has been productive of the nonsensical yarns about myself.

Crop conditions are not so good in the vicinity of Arapahoe as they were a month ago. on account of the heavy rains which have fallen lately. Would like to say to the Journal readers, that if you would like some fine fresh tomatoes for slicing next winter, go now and cut the old vines (which have quit bearing), back to mere stubs. The stubs will then put out new growth, which will bear fruit until frost. When frost threatens gather all the green ones, which are nearly mature, and stow them away in paper where they will not freeze. I have kept them in this way until well after Christmas. They will ripen nicely when exposed to the sun a few days. Fishing is fine now at "Live Oak" beach.

The famous If somewhat phantom personage Prester John, who for two or three centuries occupied so promi nent a place In the historic annals of Europe and In the minds of Europeans, was, from the most reliable accounts, a Christian conqueror of enormous power and great splendor, who com bined the character of priest and king nnd ruled over vast dominions In the orient In the middle ages. He had, it was related, established a powerful em pire either In Asia or Africa, and won derful stories were told of his victo ries, his riches and bis power. His mode of warfare, which was unique and entirely effective. Indicates an Intimate acquaintance with ex plosives and combustibles. He pos sessed an army of life sized copper soldiers mounted on brazen horses, which were charged with explosive materials, projectiles and poisonous gas. This formidable array was mar shaled to the front and spat forth its deadly fumes and dangerous projec tiles with horrid effectiveness, making havoc In the ranks of the enemy. The first mention of this extraordi nary man, who appears and disappears from historic annals at long Intervals, occurs In the Chronicles of Otto, Bish op of Frlesengen, who narrates Pres ter John's conquest of the Persians st Egbatana, In the extreme orient, in the year 1145.

In fact, resolutions have been Introduced In the state legisla ture once or twice, bat have died In committee. Tbe purpose bas been to include all of the present state south of Westchester county In a new state to be called (In one Instance) tbe state of Manhattan. North of tbe Bronx district the name of New York was still to be retained. The surrounding Islands of the south all those of Long Island sound. Long Island complete and all of the counties comprising New York city were to be embraced within tbe new state of Manhattan. Tbe creation of a new stato confers a right that cannot later be abrogated and In this respect Is unique In the establishment of political areas. After the people of the district in question have decided by vote that the carry ing out of a new state is desired, con gress passes upon the application. Up to this point congress Is supreme. Once, however, congress agrees to the new state creation and tbe new state becomes an established fact, then no power of the republic can undo whnt Iib.i lieen done by lerlslallve w-t No repeal can revoke the privileges of a law abiding sovereign state. New York Sun. Ball a Q lets' Game. Of an the games ball seems to be peculiarly a girl's game throughout the ages. Tbe Roman girls used to strike balls with the palm of tbe band to keep them bouncing or would (ling thnii against the wall to drive tlieiu back on the return or would pass the ball from hand to hand In tbe ring or la a row. The ball of the olden times was much like tbe one now in use. It was aoft or hard, as occasion demand ed; It was plain with pointed or em broidered cloth; It was a hollow large balloon or a small light sphere. The German poets make frequent allusion to ball as a girl's game. It was de scribed as a first sport of summer. One writer observes, "When I saw the girls on the street playing ball then came to our ears tbe song of birds." The game was a favorite one with youths and maids, who would contend for the ball, that the one wbo gained It might throw It to tbe one loved best Kansas City Times. An Artist at Six.

Our How did tbe United States come to net that smnll corner of land which Juts out from the extreme northern boundary of Minnesota? History ofl (hat little "nose" which sticks out Into Canada from Minnesota and which constitutes tbe northernmost point of the United States is very Interesting. Under the treaty of 1783 the boundary between the United States and British possessions was fixed. A certain point on tbe Lake of the Woods was mutual ly agreed to as one starting point, this being considered tbe headwaters of thd St Lawrence river and great lakes system. At that time It was not known wheth er this point was north or south of the forty-ninth parallel, but It was known to be close to It. The understanding was that from that point the boundary should go north or south to the forty ninth parallel, us the case might be. Later and more accurate surveys showed that point was about twenty- flve miles north of the forty-ninth par allel, and so at this place the boundary makes u Jog above that line. Uncle Sam thus has a little piece of territory of about a hundred square miles In extent nortb of the general boundary. And the Joke of It Is that any one has to go by water In order to reach this little piece of territory unless he wants to go through Canada. Path finder. LOVE SWAYS THE ARTIST. His Work Show the Glorifying Power of the Grand Passion. "How Wagner must have loved when be wrote that!" exclaimed old King William of Prussia when be hoard "Tristan und Isolde" for the first time. We know now through the publication of Wagner's love letters and other bio graphical and autobiographical mate rial that he was In love with Mathildc Wesendonck when he composed the opera. This passion was warp and woof of that Immortal music drama, the greatness of which compelled Wag ner all the rest of his life to hold him self up to his highest level of produc tion. Frank Harris has pretty definitely proved that Shakespeare wrote "An tony and Cleopatra" under the Influ ence of n tragical and hopeless love for. Mary Fitton. It has been declared byl a great critic that "Antony and Cleo pntra" has in It every sbred of Shake! speare's vitalizing power and thnt as tragedy It marks the zenith of his achievement. If It Is Indeed Mary Fit ton who Is in It she possesses a monu ment more glorious than any memorial of stone ever raised to a potentate saint or n god. Not evc: ni in who lives by art Is n Shakespeare or a Wagner, hut every. artist, great or small, Is subject to the same principle of the animating and glorifying power of love.
