Tho Turkish officials continue to in
sist that no attempt was mado on tho

that tho whole story originated In a
fou-de-jolo fired on tho occasion of a
marrlago In accordanco with customs.
Mr. LeiBhman, however, refuses to
accept an explanation without con
clusive proof that tho judicial Investi
gation continues. "
Tho attempt to burn tho American
, college at Harpoot occurred 'five weeks

patch says, led tho vico consul to be
lieve that an attempt had been made

until finally ho was successful.
It was reported hero that an In
junction would bo asked for by ono or
moro- of tho competing towns te pre-'
vent Kearney from getting tho school
without a fight through tho courts.
The request is to bo based on tho fact
that Kearney offered twenty acres of
land which is not In ono tract,
when the law requires that tho land
bo ono tract of not less than twenty
acres; that Kearney was allowed to
modify Us bids after all were opened;
and if theso are not sufficient to get'
the injunction, then tho constitution

Tho general belief that the plana

by some kind of nervous disease,
while out of 1,000 girls who had not
been put at playing Bcales only 100
wero so affected. His recommenda
tion is tli at girls should not begin to
