tary. The association was orgnni/.ed in

endorsement , having over 100 policies
with Fort Dodge people among whom

Ponder Republic : The fatal termina
tion of ono of the smallpox patients in
the Lemmon homo emphasizes the no-
comity of grout caution on the pint of
our people. It makes no difference that
some are unwilling to admit that the
malady is smallpox. Competent physi
cians here and elsewhere have positively
declared that it is smallpox. The health
of the community is fnr more essential
thnn that somebody's opinion , formed
without any knowledge of diseases
whatever , should bo respected. The
rights of the community are bound
to bo and must bo respected. The com
munity has been greatly endangered bv
the willful commingling among our
people , of persons coming from families
having the discnse , which Is no loss than
criminal and should bo treated ns such.
A set of agents nro canvassing Nor
folk on n scheme thnt has very much
the appearance of a fake and people will
probably do well to require the fulfill
ment of tholr generous offer before partIng -
Ing with their money. For n cash con
sideration of $1) ) in installments these
gouoroiiH people propose to give nine
books nnd a number of nrt premiums
besides allowing their patrons to cheese
a handsome piece of furniture , which if
of nny vnluo whatever , is worth moro
than the entire price asked forbookspio-
tures and furniture. People will do well
to remember that no firm or com
pany , it matters not how generous , can
alVord to give Bomothiug for nothing.
It is said that these agents have refused
a number of offers to soil tholr goods to
reliable business men nnd nccopt cash
on delivery , which is pretty J good
ground for suspicion ,
All persons nro hereby cnutioned'not

clear exposition of the church , defining
it MH the extension of the incarnation iu
the world nnd having ns its essential
work the uniting of man to God. 'Ho
showed how that this woik is wrought
by the siicran.onts of Christ's appoint-
nient nnd how that the apostolic in in1
istry is a logical and necessary require
ment for the work of the church. The

nud was opened with devotions by
Bishop Williams. The Rev. Win. J.
Moody of Falls Cl y , opened nu interest

on "Tho Best Basis for a Diocesan As
sessment. " Ho advocated as the best
basis of assessment for the necessary ex
penses of the diocese n pro ratn tax npou
the parochial income rather than a per
capita tax. This scorned to bo the prevailing -
vailing sentiment of all the clergy pros-
out. Mr. J. B. Mnylard who wns re
quested to speak from the layman's
point of view endorsed the plan advo
cated by Rev. Mr. Moody.
A bnsiuoss session followed the dis

Astronomers who wore looking for a

haps'tibout 1 to It o'clock , nnd may be
continued for three or four nights fol [
lowing. It is expected that the earth
will pass through or near the Leouis
during that time aud n grnud displny of
celestial fireworks that will
seoiug is anticipated. The oveut is one
of a lifo-tiuio ns it takes place at inter

many i Norfolk people who would like to
see i it aud n number hnvejinnde arrange

ranged to give notice by sounding the

Two Fugitives Surrounded in
Farm House , but Escape.
Cherlff Cook and Deputy Are Them
selves Made Prisoners Forced to
Promise Immunity From Arrest.
Farmer's Wife Used as Shield.
Topckn , Kan. , Nov. 11. Sheriff
Cook of this county and Deputy Slier-
Iff Williams were capturoil by two es
caped convicts from the Fort Leaven-
worth military prison yesterday after
noon at Pauline , flvo miles south of
Topeka , nnd held prisoners In the
fnrm housa of n man named Woostcr
for several hours. They finally es-
caped between n line of police sent
from Topeka to reinforce the sheriff
and nro now nt largo. BoMi were
slightly wounded. Woostor was badly
wounded by one of the convicts when
he tried to flro on Ihom. Mrs.
Woostor and Sheriff Cook were hold
before the convicts as a shield by the
prisoners in making their escape. A
posse is in pursuit.
At 2:30 : p. in. some farmer boys
near Pauline learned that the convicts
were In the neighborhood. Hastily
forming a posse armed with target
rifles , pistols and clubs , they gave
chaso. Neither of the convicts was
armoil nnd they wcro unnblo to make
a stnnd. Later Sheriff Cook and De
puty Williams arrived. Coming upon
the convicts , both officers llrcd ,
wounding the men , but not disabling
thorn. The convicts then Hod through
n small opening In the timber and
ran _ . Into the house of Farmer Woostor.
Sheriff Cook telephoned to/Topeka for
assistance and then took up the chase.
Thinking that the convicts had run
around the house , Cook darted
through the open door , Intending to
surprise thorn nt the roar door. But
Instead of this , the convirts bad gone
Into the house and the officer almost
fell Into their nrms.
Sheriff Gives Up His Gun.
Sheriff Cook was ordoreil to give up
his gun , which ho did. Deputy Will-
lams by this time had reached the
house and entered without knowing
what had happened Inside , and ho ,
too , was made captive by the con-
In the meantime Chief Stahl of To-
pckn with eight officers wore on the
way. They arrived nt the Wooster
house about an hour after the officers
had been Imprisoned. Chief Stahl Im
mediately began negotiations with the
convicts to give up their prisoners
nnd to surrender themselves , but the
convicts only laughed. Farmer Woos
ter then managed to get a gun and
was about to make an attack on the
convicts when one of them laid him
low with a blow from the butt of a re-
volver tnken from one of their cap
tives. The convict broke Wooster's
right hand nnd cut a gash in his
head. One of the convicts told Sheriff
Cook that bo would bo killed If he
made the slightest move looking to-
ward their capture. In the meantime -
time , the police officers on the outside
had surrounded the building , but were
nfrald to make a move for fear that
Cook and Williams would suffer.
Walk Off Unmolested.
Mrs. Woostcr had fainted during
the excitement. She finally revived
and nt 7 o'clock the convicts placed
the woman and Sheriff Cook In front
of thorn ns shields and made for the
door. Then , after exacting a promise
from the sheriff that he would not
permit any of the officers to fire itn
them , they started for the open. As
they left the house with the frlght-
cnod farmer , wife and the submissive
sheriff before them , the convicts
passed between a cordon of police ,
who could have easily captured them : ,
and started for the railroad track. The
sheriff had In turn exacted a promise
from the police that they would not
molest the convicts and they did not.
After covering n considerable dis
tance down the track , the convicts :
suddenly disappeared through a hedge ;
fence , bidding the officers n mocking
farewell. One of the police sergeants -
geants later said ho could have easily
touched the leading convict with his
hand as ho passed.
The convicts had secured a good
start before the officers had recovered
from tholr surprise. Then some of
the policemen wanted to pursue , but
Sheriff Cook would not permit It , as
ho had promised the convicts Imraunl-
ty from arrest.
Sheriff Stahl left some of his men ;
on the sccno and with the others
started back to Topeka to take up the
chase later on. The convicts are well
armed , having taken all the guns In
the farm house , Including those of the
sheriff and his deputy. They are both
white men , but their Identity was not
Sheriff Cook arrived from Pauline
nt 10 o'clock last night. Ho was
somewhat disfigured and his clothes
were ragged , but ho had lost none of
his ncrvo by his usage at the hands
of the convicts. In telllnc the story
of his experiences he made no attempt
tempt to conceal the humorous aspect
of the affair. Ho said "
: "Deputy Will-
lams was not captured , as at first re-
ported. When ho saw mo taken he
stood off from the house and the convicts
victs did not molest him. "

Colombian Liberals Think He Is PlayIng -
Ing Dual Role.
Wlllcmstad , Nov. 11. Advices re
ceived here from Capacho Vlojo , dated
cd Nov. 5 , say that the report from
President Castro to his brother Coles-
tlno Castro , at San Cristobal , to the

ment "Insists upon mediating be
tween Venezuela and Colombia"
caused the greatest excitement among
the troops on the frontier. General
Urlhe-Urlbo and General Modesto
Castro Immediately set out for San
Cristobal to obtain details.
It Bccnis that General Urlbc-Urlbo
refused to believe the report , declar
ing that ho had no fears as to the fut
ure of the liberal cause , because President
. .
ident Castro had given him n cnst-lron
pledge not to forsake him.
"Should President Castro prove untrue -
true to the liberal cause , " exclaimed
General Urlbc-Urlbo , "tho result
would ' bo his ruin. The war will enter

Denver and Rio Grande Switch En
gines Fully Manned.
Denver , Nov. 11. The strike of
switchmen on the Denver and Illo
Grande railroad Is having but little
effect on the traffic of that road , ac
cording to the statements of the rail
road officials. The switch engines
all over the system were fully
manned , with the exception of those
at Sallda nnd Alnmosn. The Brother
hood of Trainmen say they will stand
by the decision of Vice Grand Master
Lee , In which he declared that the
agreement between his organization
and the Rio Grande was still In opera
tion and that It covers switching. The
switchmen employed on the Colorado
and Southern railroad , who , It was re
ported , would aid the Rio Grande men
In their strike , say they will continue
Northwestern Said to Have Completed
Deal for Through Line.

ald says : A new through railway
line from Chicago to St. Louis Is be
lieved by residents of Springfield and
other towns In the central part of the
state to be a certainty In the near fut
ure. . . The rumor that comes from
those . cities Is that the Chicago and
Northwestern railway has completed
a deal by which It * will absorb the
Chicago , Peoria and St. Louis line
and thus gain an entrance Into the do-
slrablo , St. Lduls territory. For some
time the Northwestern road has been
at work building a branch road from
Dlxon to Peoria , and this would con
nect with the Chicago , Peoria and
St. Louis road to make a through line.
