GETmc a Littlx Shoht. Daring the cam nslrn
of 1880, Charley Cork halter, while in White Cload.
ooday, met Jake Hills, of Roy's Creek, who pro
fessed to bare a Urge sum entrusted to him to bet
on the election of Hancock over Garfield, and offer
ed a premium to any man who would bring a per
son who would let with him. Charley said he had
$.00 that he would risk on Garfield, so the bet was
made, and the money put np- After the election,
the stake-holder gave np the money to Charley, ac
cording to the terms of the bet. Last week. Char
ley reeeired a letter from a person at Hiawatha,
who said that Mills was betting for him; that he
had jut seen Mills for the first time since the Presi
dential election, and was informed by him that
Charley's bet was that Garfield would be President
for funryears from the 4th of the next March, but as
Garfield was killed, he was not President for four
years, and Charley had lost the bet. He closed by
roiueMiDg Lint to forward the money The cheek
dirplajcd was astounding, but Charley thought that
if Le bad bet en these terms, this fellow's agent cer
tainly mint hav-e Wt that Hancock would be PresI
dent for four years from the 4th of the next March,
and a he was cot. he conldn t see how hi antago
nist had won the bet. However, he wrote the man
that there pecmed to be a difference of opinion be
tween himself and Mr Mills on the subject, which
could be decided only br the stake-holder, who
knew the terms, and was to be the Judge; there
fore, they would defer the matter until they could
meet the stake holder, and get his decision. He as
sured the fellow that it was only a question of time,
and that if the stake-holder gave the decision
agamst him, he would cheerfully hand over the
money, with interest for the time he had had the
nseofit. The point to this Is, that Milt. Emerson
was the stake-holder, and he is dead !

Editor Kasi Chief; I hare just heard of the
death of an old and dear friend, ia the person of
Judge Nathan Price. I can not express the shock
it has given me ; and while knowing nothing of tbe
cause of his death, it Is impossible for one to resist
the Impulse to say a few words of love and respect
for his memory, and, if it were possible, of heartfelt
sympathy for the bereaved eaea who mourn his
loss. A noble man of nature's own stamp, we loved
him, trusted in him. and were never disappointed.
His faults were few, and his virtues many; and his
memory will long be cherished by his nunr friends.

Card or Thank.
EimoR Kaxsas Chief: Permit me, through the
medium of your paper, in behalf of myself and wife,
to thank our many fnends and neighbors who so
kindly and sympathetically assisted ns In our late
bereavement, in tbe loss of our only son Georgie,
and also of our daughter Mamie, In November, 1831.
Scarcely more than two short years ago, we left
our eastern home, full of hopeful anticipations, look
ing forward to a permanent residence In Kansas.
Before the close of the year, our darling Mamie was
called to enjoy the 1eauties of the Summer Land
Though deeplr grieved at the loss of one of onr
three little ones, we endeavored to bear up under
our bercaitmrnt, hopeful In the anticipation of a
future re-union With the coming of the apnng of
1833, our oldest child, Georgie, was called to join
hii sister, leaving us our youngest daughter, rlor
ence. W ith maternal solicitude, fearful of the ef
fects of the March winds on the health of our re
maining child, a hasty departure for their former
home, in Toledo, Ohio, was resolved upon, and now,
after the disposition of my personal effects,
I see our homestead, hie a hut year s nest, deserted.
And we like leave, wben comes their time, to fall,
Till Rome lie neath the sod, and snow star are roaming
U e, who each tu each, were all in alL
TVe hojte that Oof above who loveth as a father
bo M-ca tbe ills with which we are secerned.
Will brine U4, one day, to a borne that is eternal,
Wbrre 'simmer leaves ue er fide, nor are disperard."
W ith pleasant recollections of friendship formed
in Kansas, I extend to all a kind farewell.

Trot, Kxx . April 17th, 1883.
Having read a letter In the Severance Enterpnm
purporting to have been written at Troy, Kansas,
and as said letter casts some reflections on me, aa
Probate Judge, being by law one of the examiners
of the Treasury of this County, each quarter, in re
ply I will say, since January 10, 1SS1, there never
has been one cent in actual cash short In said Treas
ury; there never has been a cheek of deposit there,
in that time; and farther, I believe the party that
wrote said letter, and signs himself "One Who
Knows, is only trying to work np a boom for Coun
ty Treasurer of this County, and would. If elected,
run tbe ofiScee with deposit cheeks. But I think
tbe people of this County too Intelligent to let such
upstarts form a nng to run the Treasury, or any
other part of the County business. Some people are
aiwaja crying "Ring." and all the time trying to or
ganize one. They are willing to call themselrea
Republicans, Democrats, or anything else, for the
sake of get trog office. And let me say, ia conclu
sion, tbe party that wrote said letter ran not make
the assertion, from Jannary lth, 1881, to this date,
without telbng a willful Ue, and I da not believe
aacfa ever was trw case at any time.

Of the particular of the aad event, we can not

That was sad news that came over tbe wire.
Wenesdar, announcing tbe death of Judge Nathan
j'nee. at Troy, Doniphan Countr To tboe who
knew the Judge s life for twenty years and over, as
we had, neither his death nor the manner in which
it took place were a surpnse Nothing but the
most robust constitution could have withstood the
inroads of an enemy which is sure in its work, so
long W hile we say the death was not a surpne,
vet its occurrence will be universally gneved over
br all who knew the man of many noble qualities.
e first became acquainted with Judge Price when
be wasa raemlierof the old Terntonal Council, in
1861, and in all tbe years since have felt an attach
ment for him and an Interest in his welfare that we
have felt for few of our public men W e bad hoped,
long ago. to have seen buu high in tbe rouneil of
tbe Male and Nation He was fitted for a high po
sition for a leader among men. Ill bright Intel
Icct. his independence of character and thought, bis
well stored mind, his generou impnlsrs and per
sonal "tearing, outside of the one great fsnlt, all
pointed to him aamsn of mark, one fitted brev
cry quality to do good for the ieop1e among whom
be lived, awl one with whom they could repowj the
highest trust, without fear of betrayal It Is true,
be impressed hi name upon the history oftbe State
as a lawyer, as a Judge, as a soldier, and as a legis
lator, but the saddest reflection comes at tbe thought
of what be might bave been, and what be might
have done, bad be not permitted the commonest en
emy of our raco to gain tbe mastery over bun. In
all hi public acts, we bave never beard of hi doing
a mean or unmanly thing He bad the ability ant
bravery to bailie with what he thought was wrong,
no matter If the whole world was arrayed against
him He was strong In the forum, becau he al
ways held the confidence of the people In bis integ
nty and the punty of bia motives. Hi greatest
fault was one that injured him most We shall re
member Nathan Price, not for this fault let tbe
recollection of that be buried In the grave with him
but for tbe good be did ia life, and for the noble
qualities of bead and heart which he possessed to
an eminent degree, Jale Siotler, in Empnria Aer.

TnrzKA, April 12th
To the Editor of the CommontrealtM :
The aad news from Dwniphan County will be read
with pain by the great number of warm fnends and
admirer of the late Nathan Price, all over tbe
State, who, we are sure, will remember htm at bis
best, and alwaya think af him with tender regret.
The wnler of this especially feels it incumbent upon
bim to testify a debt of gratitude he owes Judge
Itice for tbe help and encouragement he received
from him at the outset of his professional career.
Nathan Pnce was a man of W ebsterian mould. He
was endowed with a great, active brain, backed by
a warm, brave, and generous heart. He did not
fear tbe face of man. He would go any length for
bis friends, and. aa was shown on a memorable oc
casion, he would stand alone In their defense when
every one else had deserted them. His very Tirtue
of heart and mind were tbe parents of bis only
fault, and that fault injured only himself. W e, who
renirmber farm lo his intellectual prime, who hare
beard him with a masterly clearness, conciseness,
and force, arguing abstruse question of law ta tbe
Court, can only regret the eclipse of his lacnltie,
but shall not forget their existence, nor cease to re
call with admiration and affection their possessor.
Judge Price waa not a trained lawyer. He took to
the profession late in life, and without any sys
tematic preparation for the bar. Had he not been
a manor singular and wonderful powers of mind,
be could not, with such apparent ease and in so
abort a lime, have attained the proficiency a, a law
yer that all conceded to him, lie stepped readily
and confidentlr to tba front of his profession at
once, and with marvellous ease aostained his posi
f.Anthre. Lnder a brighter star, and under influ
ences which wonld have compelled greater self na
straiet, Hainan mee coma ana soma oaTe oecome
a man of national eminence. He had brains enough
to go to tbe making ef a dozen average Congress
men, with tbe courage of Agamemnon beside. W e
shall mis the Judge at onr gatherings at Leaven
worth and Tope k a, bnt we shall think of bim at his
noblest and best, and only wish and hope it 1 well
with bim where be has gene.
