Stephen Rayles, who was adjudged
insane a short time ago and taken to
the asylum ut Lincoln, has been trans
ferred from that institution to the
soldiers' home at Milford. It seems
that, while Mr. Rayles was aged and
infirm, examination by Dr. Green of
the Lincoln asylum showed conclusive
ly that there was not a trace of in
sanity, and through the efforts of Sec
retary of State Galusha, he was trans
ferred to the soldiers' home. It seems
a shame that, when people become
bowed with the weight of years, their
children should so far forget their
duty as to wish to be rid of them and
allow them to be sent to state chari
table institutions on the flimsiest pre
texts. Changes In Teaching Force,

Poisonous Drugs In Home-made Bak
ing Powder Almost Causes
Rainey Royce and family, of near
North Itrauch, Kansas, had an experi
ence Tuesday evening which they will
long remember. It seems they had
some bilking, powder compounded by
a North Branch druggist from a recipe
which they had procured from some
source, and he substituted by mistake
a poisonous drug for one of the ingred
ients. Mrs. Boyce noticed the baking
powder had u different appearance
from some which she lied previously
made from the same recipe, but went
ahead and used it, with the result that
the entire family was taken violently
sick. Dr. Hershner of North Branch
was called and with much dltlleulty
succeeded in saving their lives. How
ever, they missed the Decoration day
