past Dodge City, the Phillipsburg Herald
thus emphasizes what the World has
claimed time and again: "We have seen
some of those ditches ourselves, and, ex
cepting the seasons when the Arkansas
river is on a boom, they are as dry as a
Boston lecture. Parties seeking homes
for themselves and posterity should come
to northern Kansas, where the windows
of Heaven open and the floods descend.
Baring the moisture based upon 'applica
tions,' nature does the irrigating business
in these parts."

It will be well to remember that the
abstract . assessment which we publish
this week represents the actual work of
the township trustees, instead of the fig
ures as amended by the board of equalization.
All of the Ellis county bar,
except three members, the Ellis Headlight
says, have signed a petition for Judge
Pratt to be a candidate for judge. That
paper puts in these telling points: "Sev
eral gentlemen who were candidates
prior to the action of the bar and citizens
of Trego county will not be candidates
against Judge Pratt Should he accede
to the requeste, he ought to, and we be
lieve ho will, receive the nomination upon
the first ballot. Judge Pratt is an im
partial, honest, hard-working judge.
While he may not have pleased every
one by some of his decisions, yet none
have been reversed by the higher court,
where all attorneys can go, provided they
can get their clients to put up."
THE TAX THEME.
The abstract of the assessments in
Trego county for the current year is a
theme for the analysis of all thinking
Our publication of this abstract will be
followed by comparative data and other
local statistics. An inspection of the
figures will convince the most skeptical
that the financial growth of Trego
county, oven during the most of the dark
period of her history, has been rapid.

This week we publish a petition signed
by the county officers and bar of Trego
county, asking Judge Pratt to become a
candidate for re-election. We clip the
same from the Western (Wa-Keeney)
World, which highly endorses the move.
This is a high compliment to one of
Phillips county's worthy citizens, and a
just appreciation of a good officer. We
are not informed whether or not Judge
Pratt will betifcandidate, but this redo
know, that Phillips county has plenty of
good timber for tho judgeship. Phillifs
burg Herald. -
Well, friends of the Heruld, Judge
Pratt, please understand, is the only
Phillips county candidate who can ex
pect much support from down this way.
Down here we are not in the business of
claiming, or even conceding, that Phillips
county is especially entitled to the judgeship.

County Surveyor Ferris went to
Grainfield Monday evening, for the pur
pose of doing the following work as fast
as he could: Platting the Grainfield and
Grinnell town sites and surveying seven
sections of land.
When we mentioned the matter a few
weeks ago, David was reported as feign

of day before yesterday says: "Mr. Hille

The wretched condition of the roads
kept several Wa-Keeney people from at

but presume that, as it was, there was
quite a neighborhood turnout.
Miss Jennie Tilton's school, in the
Sheriff Baker district, was closed on
Thursday of last. week. It affords us
great pleasure to say that she gave thor

months of her work in that district.
A Hail Storm Lays Waste the
Crops of Quite an Area.
About 7 o'clock Tuesday afternoon, the
fiercest hail storm known to this section
of country since its settlement came down
from slightly west of north. We
do not claim to know the place of its
origin, but reports indicate that it was in
the latitude of Millbrook .and several
miles west of that place. It is said to
have done considerable damage at Nc
thaniel Crank's, almost west of Millbrook.
It entirely ruined the corn and other
crops of Mr. Lahman, in ,the southpart
of Graham county. It must have injured
all his neighbors in the same manner.
Coming on to the Saline, J. P. Smith
reports that he has nothing left in the
crop line. His neighbors generally, we
infer, were similarly damaged. We esti
mate the average width of the destructive
hail belt at from two to three miles. In
the immediate vicinity of Wa-Keeney,
crops were not entirely beaten into the
ground. Timber was not seriously in
iured. thoncrh some small limbs and
maiiy leaves were harvested. Prom Sheriff
Baker's west for two or three miles the
damage in the Big Creek valley was1
especially severe. Mr. Baker report
that his crops are all beaten into -the
ground and his timber injured seriously.
Chalk, Hewitt, Wolf and others lost all
We have not learned where ther hail
storm took a halt to the south.
State Superintendent Lawhead in
formed a World reporter that some hail
fell at Grainfield, but that it did no harm.
In Wa-Keeney, the storm gave the
glaziers a business boom. As a rule, all
lights in northern windows were broken.
This fact, taken in connection with the
lights in southern windows having been
pretty generally broken in the other hail
storm this spring, suggests the idea that
Wa-Keeney may well claim to be the
city of new lights. . '
While we might go on describing in
dividual instances of Tuesday's storm
until bed time, and not be through then,
the whole thing seems to be summed up
in tho statement that that was one hail of
WHEENEY MARKET REPORT.
GIVE US A SUPPLEMENT.
Say! It is time this thing is fixed up.
A portion of the newspapers in this dis
trict have it that the judicial convention
at Millbrook is to be held on July 27,
and the other portion have the time set
for the 28. As far as we can judge,
both sides are about evenly balanced in
point of respectability. The Millbrook
Times, issued in the village where the
judicial committee made the convention
decree, has it on July 27. On the other
hand, both Stockton papers have it on
the 28. The chairman of the judicial
committee issued the call for the conven
tion. He lives at Stockton.
Will the chairman issue a supplement
to his original manifesto, so that people
may know what he means?
Lawyer Bedd and Geo. H. Smith,
both of Ness City, were in town the fore
part of the week, on land-office business.
Mr. Bedd thinks that Ness county now
contains a population of 4,500. He says
that it ran down to only about half this
number during the degeneracy of the
Geo. Galloway sat in front of Wer

next morning W. A. Lewis, Werlich &

store, on the sidewalk, a pocketbook con
taining $10 and business papers. The
finder ascertained that the property be
longed to Galloway, and cheerfully
The mother and sister of the editor
of this paper started, Tuesday morning,
to their home, in Waverly, in this state,
intending to spend a few weeks on the
way in visiting relatives in McPherson
county. Only he who realizes fully the
grandeur of the wealth of a true mother's
and sister's love can know the poignancy
of that grief which comes to us on saying
farewell to them!
After-copying in full our report of the
base-ball game, the shooting match and
the dance at Wa-Keeney, Thursday and
Thursday night of last week, the Buffalo
Park Pioneer adds: "The boys corrobo
rate the above, viz: 'A splendid time, an
elegant supper and Bro. Tilton's ingeni
ous report of the game. Capt Sloey
says, if he made any such request, it was
simply in the interest of the Wa-Keeney
boys, who had given them such a pleas
ant time, notwithstanding the Blues'
walkover.'" ,, , mX
In the fore part of tho week, State
Superintendent Lawhead was at Grain
field to examine into the condition of
some school-land squabbles near that
place. Mr. Lawhead'was in Wa-Keeney
on Wednesday, in consultation with some
of our county officers concerning Gove
county school lands and certain matters
in Trego county. As a matter of fact,
numerous complaints had been made to
the state superintendent by a certain
man in our county against our superin
tendent. Mr. Kich, in these complaints,
was represented as acting impartially, to
say the least, in connection with the sales
of some school lands. Mr. Lawhead ex?
amined the matter carefully, and ex
pressed himself as being exceedingly well
pleased with the condition of Mr. Eich's
official records and his official conduct
generally and specifically.
J. K. Grover and the other defendant
in the Fort Wallace occupation case
were on hand on Tuesday for trial. Dis
trict Attorney Hallowell did not put in
an appearance, and the case was dis
missed without prejudice. Aside from
this, indications point to the fact that the
complainants undertook a game of scare,
and, having lost in this, conceded that all
was lost to them. The offense of Grover
and his partner was the building of a big
boarding house on the government reser
vation. They are finishing the house and
Grover claims that it will be filled with
boarders immediately on being opened.
This, of course, will do Jenks's high-price
hotel no particular good, and may be here
is the key to this whole racket.
The World, we believe, has failed
to state what kind of a trick the finance
committee for Decoration day cut up.
They went to work beforehand, and ob
tained signatures for the donation of
about $80. When it came to collecting
the subscriptions, after Decoration day
had been lived through, this same com
mittee, which by the way, had had gen
eral supervision of the expenditures,
asked each subscriber to pay just about
one-third as much as he had subscribed.
Our reporter has the first mad subscriber
to that fund to run across yet, with a
plagued poor prospect of ever finding
Wa-Keeney has a roller-skating rink.
A hard floor has been laid in Grand Army
Hall, and this floor is the skating field.
Thomas Caddick and W. S. Kyle are the
rink managers. The rink was opened
Thursday evening. About thirty pairs of
skates were in use. There was a good
deal of lowly tumbling. It is the inten
tion to keep the rink open in the after
noons and evenings. We are unable to
say whether Sundays will be excepted.
We suppose, of course, that they will.
The price of three hours' skating for one
person will be 25 cents.
