DELINQUENT TAX LIST
IN TREGOGOUHTY FOR YEAR 1884,
Notice is hereby given that the County
Treasurer will sell at public auction at
his office in the city of Wa-Keeney on
the first day of September, 1885, and the
next succeeding days, so much of each
tract of land and town lots described in
the following list as will pay the taxes
and charges thereon:
GLENCOE TOWNSHIP. -
Osborn, Monroe and Henkel have
just a little the most majestic-looking
buggy horse which we have seen owned
in Wa-Keeney. They purchased him of
J. R. Vancil, who has recently come to
this county from the county of Saline, in
Mr. Ewalt has ono apple in his or
chard this summer. It is not very large,
but its health is said to bo good.
P. H. Morgan, we see by the Pioneer,
has been employed to teach the Buffalo
school. David is a brother of rollicking
Sheriff Baker attended the state con
vention of sheriffs at Topeka on Tuesday.
He was made ono of the thirteen directors
of that body.
The ten hours' lateness of the Colo
rado express train a week ago last night
resulted from the washing out of a bridge
P. C. Hughes, a land attorney at

Tuesday. He is paving particular atten
tion to the June, 1880, final-proof business.
G. W. Brow n and family, who went
in May last from here to Lyon county to
take up their residence, are back here to
stay. Brown says crops are not healthy
down there like they are here.
G. W. Poorman and Miss Kate
Young were married last Saturday even

Prof. Pilkenton's singing geography

Mr. T. R. Moore, railway station agent
at this place, is prepared to receive con
tributions to the fund to be created for
the erection of a monument to General
Grant, and will receipt for them.
Mr. S. R. Cowick, a lawyer of Tarkio,
in northwest Missouri, was here a portion
of the early part of the week. He expects
to locate here in the course of a few weeks
to engage in the practice of his profession.
The regular annual meeting for the
election of school officers is to take place
next Thursday. Considerable interest is
felt concerning the result in this district.
In the meantime, it should be remember
ed vividly that they who do not attend
the meeting will have no moral right to
growl at its decisions. The employment
of teachers for the new year and the
amount of the annual school tax levy are
questions which should secure the gene
ral attendance of parents, guardians and
tax-payers at this election. m
The lecture of Professor Parker,
Tuesday evening, on Primitive Man in
North America, was listened to by a full
house. The professor delivered an excel
lent lecture. He showed that the artifi
cial mounds which are found in so many
portions of the great Mississippi valley
were not built by Indians, because they
are too lazy to do such work. The lect
urer contended that thoge forts, cemete
ries, places and emblems of worship, and
so on, which are represented by these
mounds, are the work of a people so an
cient that even Indian tradition is silent
respecting them, and who possessed many
of the features of our own civilization.
It is well enough to give straggling
auctioneers and other peddlers a chance
to enliven the flow into the city treasury.
By consulting an ordinance in this week's

Mr. J. B. Hogan, from Rock Rapids,
Iowa, has arrived in town, and he will be
stationed here as the agent of Close Bros.
& Co., land agents. This firm already
does an oxtensive business in Minnesota
Another example of the potato
mulching theory has been produced.
Mr. J. P. Smith, of the Saline valley,
presented to us, last Saturday, a bunch
of as large, fine-looking potatoes as you
will often see. He explained that he
planted eight and a half bushels last
spring, and will dig at least 150 bushels.
He mulched them a foot and a half deep
while planting. He did not have to cul
tivate them a particle, and bugs have
bothered the crop very little. Mr. Smith
has tried mulching potatoes for three
consecutive years, and, in common with
others who have pursued the same course
in this section of country, he has been uni
formly successful. If you want to run
across an enthusiastic advocate of this
method of raising potatoes, don't pass
Grant Memorial Services.
Commander Caddick has notified us
that he .desires that the Post meet in a
body for the purpose of conducting Grant
memorial services. He desires that the
Post meet in their room at 10 a. m. to-day
(Saturday) to take action in the matter.
Mayor Jones requests, through the
World, that the business houses in Wa
Keeney be closed between the hours of 1
and 5 o clock p. m., as an aid to the me
morial prooceedings on the part of the
W. R. Minert, traveling land agent
for the A., T. fc S. F. railway, gave us a
call on Tuesday. He reports business
brisk in the land trade on the other line,
as well as between the roads, in Ness,
Rush and other counties.
It caused the two young bloods who
were arrested here toward the latter part
of last week by Marshal Frick for drunk
enness and disorderly conduct five dollars
and costs apiece, and they got a gilt
edge bargain then. One of them drew a
pistol on the marshal. Complaint was
not made on this point.
The boys had oodles of fun last
Sunday with one or two Arabian beggars
who reached the city by the two-hoof
route in the afternoon. The boys seemed
to taKo ine foreigners- for mermaids. They
had male costume on their heads and
bodies, and a sort of petticoat over the
legs, these garments being fastened tight
ly at the bottom, as well as at the top.
When the crash came, it sounded. a
good deal like two brick walls trying to
fall through each other. In reality, it
was the effect of a great big dry goods
box of beer bottles tumbling off a wheel
barrow which some boys were wheeling
on the crosswalk just east of Scott's drug
store yesterday morning. Many of the
bottles were broken in the catastrophe,
and this fact, united with the extra work
and excitement, warmed the freighters
under the collars.
