There seems to be a general lack of infor
mation in regard to drawing juries, from
the urgent and frequent appeals to the
county clerk to be "put on." In counties
of 30.000 inhabitants, or over, the law re
quires the governor to appoint a jury
commission whose duty it is to meet after
tho 15th of April and select one name from
every fifty tax payers in the county. These
names are certified to the county clerk,
who makes a copy of them and puts them
i a box kept by him for that purpose.
The judge issues an order to the county
clerk, to draw a jury for his court, thirtv
days before the terra begins. The sheriff
is also notified. The county clerk, sheriff
or his deputy, together with two justices
of the peace, on a day set apart meet at the
office of the county clerk and proceed to
draw as many names as are ordered for
jurors. Xo one has anything to do with
selecting the names but the jury commis
sioners. But, despite this fact, there is a
great rush on the part of some profession
als in this line, to get on the jury.
They tackle every one around the
county building hoping to get on the jury.
They make a specialty of not reading
newspapers or claim so, and make a spec
ially of knowing very little of any case, no
matter how much general comment it has
created. When being examined as pre
paratory to going in the box they as a rule
absolutely know nothing. They are the most
innocent set of creatures ever placed on
record. It has often been suggested that
they appear so innocent that they certainly
just reached earth, got their ago in some
other country and just dropped down.
Some times it is almost necessary to send
out and bring in witnesses to prove they
know something of the case to bo consider
ed. The profes-ional jurors are reported to
be something of an eye-sore. They are
omnipresent and hence their nauseating
qualities are emphasized. Hut withal the
world is supposed to be moving and the

In writing ou the question of rebilling
Kansas grains at Kansas City in yester
day mornings EAGLE, whereby the grain
of soutlmost Kansas destined for the
south is forced through the markets and
elevators at Kausits City, being first hauled
from two to three hundred miles for that
purpo-e and then hauled back, we stated
that Kausas City last year shipped J0,OO0
tar loads to Texas and the south. The
proof reader got it 2,000 car loads, which
made nonsense of our sums total. From
a prominent grain dealer of southern Kan
sas not only, nut from the admission
of the Times, wo obtained the figures of
twenty thousand car loads, or twelve mill
ion bu-hels. Of course this is but a frac
tion of the grain raiMl in south Kansas,
but the aggregate taken from this amount
of grain in the way of commissions. nnl
by deductions in cleanings, which should
never go to the Mi-Muri at all, but from
Wichita directly south to its destination,
amounts in the aggregate to an immense
sum annually. At least the hulk of this
twenty thousand louds would never go to
the Missouri river and be hauled back
again if Wichita had her proper storage
facilities and inspection or gradingauthor
i;y, in which event the railroads would
not only save a long haul, for
which they receive nothing, but the
home dealer being relieved of peculation
and extortion, would pay the producer a
better price for his grain. In short, the
more this grain elevator and grain storage
proposition is looked into, the more im
portant it becomes to not only Wichita,
but to every grain producor and grain
doa.er in South Kansas. For the savings
on the eleven uiiiiiou bushels of grain
raised in Sedgwiok county last year, the
farmers could have themselves built a
million bushel elevator and had one or
two hundred thousand dollars surplus.
