Gove City and Grainfield during the first
half of the week. Tho interest at every
point was positive. At Gove City and
Grainfield music was furnished in addi
tion to ample preparations looking to the
comfort of all who attended the meetings.
To show what kind of a man J. B. Beal
is, we will state that we he heard that he,
although a Democrat, did more than any
other person to further the success of the
meeting at Grainfield; though there were
friends McMath, Prindle and other Be
publicans who worked with a will for the
success of the meeting. The new school
house at Grainfield was dedicated by
this meeting. It is a beautiful building,
the handiwork of our fellow-townsman,

The Ministerial Association.
The Ellsworth District Ministerial as

the landlord, came recently from Brook
ville, Kan., where he and his brother ran
the railroad eating house. The Wallace
House sets an elegant table, and is thor
ough in all its appointments. Mr. H. A.
Clark presided at the speaking at Wallace
Tuesday evening. Judge Benson pre
sided at the Gove City meeting, and
made some brilliant remarks in intro
ducing Mr. Turner. Mr. McMath
presided at the Grainfield meeting. His
culture, which we have always recognized,
cropped out in his speech of introduction,
when he declared that the Democratic
land management in western Kansas is
telling testimony in behalf of the propo
sition that no Democrat should be
elected to office in western Kansas.
County Superintendent Rich has
been visiting some schools this week.
He complains of the delay of district
clerks in sending to him the report of

are in session in the various districts or
who are teaching.
