Manager of Corn
Show This Year
Elected by Directors of the National
Exposition to Succeed J.
T. P. Stnrgess has been elected general
manager of the National Corn exposition
at a meeting of the directors to fill the
vacancy created by the resignation of J.
Wilkes Jones. Mr. Sturgess, who has been
secretary of the exposition, was chosen by
unanimous Vote. W. O. Paisley will con
tinue as assistant general manager.
Since the resignation of J. Wilkes Jones
the affairs of the exposition have been In
charge of Mr. Palsely and Mr. Sturgess
under the direction of the board.
The general managership has been left
open as long as conditions have permitted.
but the work has now assumed such pro
portions that more help In the operating
end became imperative. Mr. Sturgess
played an Important role In the successful
conduct of the exposition last year and
his knowledge of the situation made him
the most available man for the place.
The "Corn Show Mermaid" was also re
elected at the meeting of the directors
Friday evening. Though many designs had
been submitted for posters, catalogue cov
ers and "official trade-marks" the corn
how girl found an affinity In every mem
ber of the board and her election to adorn
the advertising of the exposition for the
coining year was unanimous. She will be
presented with a new dress and her coiffure
will be adjusted to suit changing styles.
The girl will be known as "the Corn Show
Maid," the directors eliminating the sea
part of the name.

Kansas Employer Declares Them Best
He Can Get for work in
According to O. H. Gh?r of Hiawatha.
Kan., college students make the best men
for work on the farms during the summet
months that the Kansas farmer can get.
Mr. Qher owns a large farm In that
state, and has had considerable experience
with student help.
"For three years I have employed from
six to eight university students to work
on my farm," said Mr. Oher, "and I find
them to be the best men I can get. I
have Used them In harvesting wheat and
in doing other work around the farm.
"This summer I have two students from
Kansas university, ons from Missouri, and
one from Iowa. One of my neighbors has
three, eastern college men. Two of them
are from Tale, I think.
"These young men make fine farm hands
for the summer months because they want
to make as much money as they can, and
do not want to spend any of It. Conse
quently they are always on the Job every
day that they- are with us, doing their
work In fine style.
'I have found the college men such good
hands that I pay them more money than
I do most of my other workmen. This is
the case with many other farmers, too.
They alt agree that university men will do
better work, and they give them better
wages than the other fellows.

Tour eyes fall on one of the most Inter

the king, look exactly like tneir portraits,
only more so.
There are several hundreds of them
scattered over the course, principally in

U1U Scott, Wat Harper, Ben Clench and
Dels Patta have equally modest ways of

One of them Is a short, stout personage

the rolled-tip ends showing green socks
which match the long, flowing tie worn
under a Byronlc collar, a green kerchief
also generous In Its proportions protrudes
from the pocket of his lightweight striped

A contemporary Is attired In clothes

and has had his stand there for fifteen
It is further explained that all the book
makers have not Burchard'f virtuous rec
ord and that the police are rather lenient
regarding punishments Inflicted by an In
dignant public on welchers.
"I saw one of them tied to a coach by a
rope over oh tha heath," the Englishman
goes on..' "He didn't have a very good
reputation and the fellows that put their
money up with him wanted to know where
to find him when the race was over.
They couldn't watch him all the time, you
know; It gets tiresome after a while."
A looker-on vouchsafes the statement
that he saw one of the tribe get a good
start In a cab once, but he was overtaken,
thrown by the mob Into the river and the
cab after him. "It was hard on the cab

don't you think soT"
Tipsters' Ar Prosperous.
The tipsters are a jilass higher, appar
ently than the bookmakers, if leisurely
methods count for ought.
"That 4e Fred Bailey," points out the
guide. "He Is the king of tipsters and
comes from Newmarket. Here's another
celebrated one. Bee how quietly he's
dressed; looks, by Jove, like a city man,
black bowler, tweeds and all. You wouldn't
take him for a tipster, now, would you?"
Just before the race the mounted police
trot smartly up and down the turf of the
course and the crowd that has to that
moment covered It return to their seats
In the enclosures, the stands, the coaches
and motors on the heath, to the standing
room offered to nontlcket holders. There
Is no confusion and no protest to authority.
The polloe are followed by men with big
canvas bags who In a trice have picked
ap all the rubbish, the flying paper that
might frighten the horses. Others sprinkle
fresh-cut grass on the places worn too
smooth and by the time the crowd has
settled into the place the turf is ready
for the racers, which are soon announced
by cries from thousands of hoarse throats.
They're offl They're running double!
They're closing up! Sir Archibald wins!"

Aroand tha Connie, .
Separated from the turf by fences and
rope barriers whsre necessary, the Heath,
extending to far off highways and byways,
is at the edge of the course a motley array
of vehloles, mostly coaches, which have
been driven down from London ar from
neighboring places filled with picnic
crowds who have big straw hampers
bursting with luncheons on which they
are already beginning to nibble. There
Is great rivalry for place, and as early
as 10 In the morning some are li position
at choice spots.
Some of the coaches are filled with fash
ionables, eight, ten or a dosen, as the case
may be; others are frankly and freely

the lack of f emir Ine society.
You remark certain peculiarities, that the
pipe Is less prevalent than It has been and
that scarcely a cigar is seen, the cigar
ette being a general favorite. A larg"
percentage of th city men wear Ions
waxed ends to their heavy mustaches.
which suggests a German Influence.
Further along the Heath toward the
royal pavilion is the motor enclosure,
where there are more plcnlo parties, al
though the majority of the Ascot follow
ers who come In this fashion leave the
machines for the high-priced seats on the
stands and for the clubs and private par
ties, specially placed. The neighborhood
of the motor enclosure is marked by the
"petrol cough," which Is London's latest
affliction. It Is said to be caused by the
gasoline In the air, and will probably abate
the moment the season Is over.
About the coaches swarm the thousands
of types which makes one question if thers
be anyone left In London. There Is no
ticket of admission required and no res
traint is placed upon personal liberty; no
signs warn you of the .grass; there Is no
surly policeman to prod you Into moving
on. England is not over advertised as the
land of the free, but everywhere you are
met with the rule of official and personal
Soma from tha City.
There are 'Arry and 'Arriots. with arms

of "a penny a drink" in front of a fruit
stand, or lunching from the top of a wagon
piled with fried butterflsh. 'Arrlet chews

hurts to look at him as at Coney Island
There is a young city man who sets a
pace for smart dressing which hundreds
of others apparently try to emulate with
meagre auccass. He has champagne col
ored shoes and his rolled up trousers show
mauve socks, his shirt with broad mauve
stripes Is not concealed entirely by the
green tie and forms a pleasing contrast
to the huge red rose in bis buttonhole
the large red stone In his scarf pin and an
amber ring. He wears besides a perfectly
satisfied expression, and has a pair of
field glasses slung with studied esse over
his right shoulder. Tou cannot. If you
would, forget the stansa of a poetlo con

He may act the swell chap at the track;
But you'll soon find his real occupation

a high cracked voice. Tommy Atkins Is

strange girl, or looking shamefacedly at

On the lawn you see hundreds of Eng

tubbed, newly groomed Englishman. On
the clean grnss trail the long gowns of
delicate chiffons, satins and the latest
novelties In silken weaves. Tailor gowns
are conspicuous by their absence; the few
shown are relieved by scarfs, the Inevita

the day Is not too warm for furs If they
are rich and handsome enough.
Every woman Is gowned as If for a
royal garden party. The many parasols
of bright colors make the enclosure look
at a distance like a flock of slowly settling
butterflies or a parterre of show blossoms,

15575. Taylor against Illinois Commercial
Men's Association. Appeal from Colfax.
Affirmed. Root. J.
1. If an Incorporated foreign Insurance
company, aa a defense In an action upon
one of its policies, pleads that the return
of the sheriff that lie served process upon
Its agent, Is false, for the reason that the
person named was not and is not Its agent,
and plaintiff in hsr reply denies those
allegations, the burden is on defendant
to negative the agency of the Individual
upon whom the process was served.
2. Defendant's evidence negatived the
fact that It had agents in Nebraska for
specific purposes, but did not deny that the
Individual designated in the sheriff's re
turn as its agent, had not performed such
acts as under section ,07, Cobbey's An
notated statutes, would constitute him Its
agents. The court, therefore, did not err
In not submitting said defense to the Jury.
i. The polloy provided that If the as
sured changed his business or vocation, he
must Immediately send the secretary of
the company written notloe of said fact,
and that unless the board of directors con
sented to such change, the policy upon the
tenth day thereafter would cease and de
termine. Held, that the change referred
to meant the substitution of one business
or vocation for the other, as the usual
business or vocation of the assured, and
did not refer to a casual or Incidental re
sort to other activities for thirty days,
where the vocation described In the policy
was not abandoned, and it was undisputed
that the assured expected within a few
days to continue his usual vocation.

Appeal from Sewaed. Affirmed. letton, J.
1. Where a breach of warranty occurs
and tho sale had not been rescinded the
usual measure of damages Is the difference
betwen the actual market value of the
warranted chattel and Its market value If
It had been as warranted and represented
to be. The fact that the purchaser had In
turn sold the chattel with a warranty and
had not been compelled to respond In dam
ages for a breach thereof, does not furnish
any ground for refusing to submit the ques
tion of damages for the breach of the origi
nal warranty to the Jury.
1. In an action for breach of warranty
of a stallion the plaintiff testified in effect
that he rescinded the sale and returned the
horse to the defendant, but that at the de
fendant's request he kept the hort-e in his
stable, and that while In his possession
the horse was sold by the defendant to one
Usllagher. Defendant Introduced the frstl
mony of Gallagher and himself to the ef
fect that the horse was purchased by Gal
lagher from the plaintiff and not from de
fendant. Plaintiff then offered to prove
that at the time that Oallagher purchased
and took the horse he told Gallagher thnt
the horse did not belong to him, but be
longed to the defendant. This evidence
was excluded by the court upon objection
Held, that the offered evidence was a self
serving declaration of the plaintiff made
aiier tne laci anu was properly excluded.
3. If a party believes that the Instruc
tions of the court are not sufficiently defi
nite or specific to properly present the
Issues to the Jury It Is his duty to request
