sound slumbers to do the deed. This is

We have to-day received a copy of

spread of the chinch bug disease fail to
receive a copy of the report from the
commissioners, he should send 6 cents in
stamps for postage to F. II . Snow, Law
rence, Kansas, who will on receipt of
the application forward a copy of the re
port. If one-half of H. N. Gaines' utter
ances to Ed. Barber, of the La Cygne
Journal, are half true they show Gaines

Gaines is a foul-mouthed, profane black
guard who ought to assigned to a place
as prince of devils instead of standing at
the head of the educational interests of
a great state. Barber is backing his
statements concerning Gaines with affi

During the past two weeks the Ot
tawa Assembly has been in session.
This is one of the most noted literary
meetings in the state of Kansas and
each year it seems larger and more in
teresting than before. The grove is fine
and every natural facility is generously
afforded by Forest Park in which the
annual meetings are held. Noted speak
ers, singers and specialists in almost
every department of education and cul
ture are secured by the management to
conduct the work. The cost is small,
and the opportunity for an outing each
year is unsurpassed. It gives the women
a splendid chance to have a good deal of
bodily recreation coupled with mental
recuperation. The Ottawa Chautauqua
is, all in all, a beneficent organization
doing good work for higher culture.
Nearly every change of price in
commodities which the iarmer has to
sell is downward. There seems to be
no prospect for any thing better in the
near future. Hogs and cattle have
maintained a good iigure compared with
the decline in the price of horses and
wheat, but the present price oflhogs and
cattle can not be long maintained in the
face of prevailing circumstances. Two
or three million men, with fheir fami
lies, would consume a vast amount of
provisions in twelve months if they had
the money to buy with. But these men
are not earning anything and conse
quently their ability to buy is cut off,
and it is only a question of a short time
when the pork and beef supply will ex
ceed the demand. The laboring men
who are now out of employment are, as
a rule, high livers. The miners, as a
class, eat heartily and of the very best
there is in the market while their work
and wages continue. Let a strike be or
dered and their tables must be lighten
ed at once, for few of them lay by any
portion of their savings for a rainy day.
The same is true of factor employes.
The inability of these classes to continue
to buy their usual large amounts of
breadstuff and meats must eventually
be felt by the farmers who find the
market glutted in consequence of the
unemployed. The way to restore prices
is to restore employment. The way to
restore employment is to issue produc
ers of manufactured goods the same
market they have had heretofore. The
way to do this is to quit tinkering with
the tariff. It is not so much what the
tariff is upon as it is the constant dread
of a ruinous change that makes times so
uncertain in manufacturing districts.
The,populists are crying down with
national banks and while they are try
ing to denationalize the banks they are
clamoring to nationalize everything else.
If the banks are not managed in the in
terests of the people, as populists aver,
what assurance have they that the same
federal authority would not mismanage
the railroads, telegraphs, etc.? If one
is not good why would the other be? A
change, a blowing of a tin horn seems to
be about all the anrument there is in the
nationalizing schemes of the populists
The wholesale abuse of Kansas Re
publicans hy the woman suffrage leaders
at the Topeka indignation meeting was,
to say the least, bad politics. The adop
tion of the suffrage amendment in Kan
sas this fall depends largely upon the
votes of Republicans who expect to vote
for suffrage, but who considered it inex
pedient lo put the plank into the party
platform. Too much abuEe from the
leaders of the movement may have the
affect of souring many of these voters
and lose the amendment many votes.

One of the vilest and most unreas
onable papers published in the state to
day is the Ottawa Journal, State Printer
Snow's paper. Says the Eureka Messen
ger, (democratic) of its editor :
"The editor of the Ottawa Journal
preaches a doctrine that destroys hope
and paralyzes individual effort; a doc
trine that crushes the spirit and dims
the eye of every person who accepts it.
He is a teacher who tells the boys and
girls of the country that they are doom
ed to a life of unrequited toil ; that they
can never hope to do or be anything in
the world by honest, patient effort ; that
corrupting and oppressive wealth has
closed all the paths to competence and
honor and that the only thing left for the
great majority of our people is to oppose
everything that is established and spend
their lives in a calamitous howA against
existing conditions. The reader of a
paper like the Journal run the risk of a
man who exposes himself to a contagious
and incurable disease, for if the virus of
the Journal's doctrines once enters a
person's mental organization, he can
never be entirely sound again. The doc
trines of the Journal fall like a wither
ing blight upon all those attributes of
human nature that make men and wo
men hopeful, progressive and attractive.
Like the lurking poison of a loathsome
disease they vitiate the currents of life
and transform bounding, vigorous health
into impotent and offensive corruption.
They embitter the mind, sour the dispo
position, curdle the milk of human
kindness, btifle ambition and destroy

The President of Prance Assasain-
LyonSj France, June 25. President
'Carnot, of France, was stabbed through
the left side by Cesard Giovanni Santo,
a young Swiss anarchist, last night
while on his way to attend a fete at the
theater, and three hours later was dead.
The knife of the murderer had pierced
through the upper liver and from the
first there, was no hope of his recovery.
The wretched assassin was terribly
beaten by the infuriateYl people who wit
nessed the terrible crime, but was saved
for the guillotine by gendarmes and sol
diers. The international silk exhibition in
this city was opened yesterday, and
President Carnot and most of the minis
ters were honored guests. The distin
guished party spent sometime at the.ex
hibition and were then tendered a ban
quent at the chamber of commerce. A
galla performance had been arranged at
the principal theater for the evening,
and the president and his party started
for the structure at 9:25 o'clock, the
president's party in front. The streets
were lined with enthusiastic people who
cheered repeatedly for their popular
chief magistrate. All seemed perfectly
bright and only one of all the hosts on
streets was aware of any cloud to mar
the happiness of the people of France.
The president's carriage, which was
in the lead", had been driven slowly
down the Rue de la Republique when,
just as he was waving his right hand
and saluting with his hat in his left, a
man pushed his way through the "cheer
ing masses and leaped upon the step.
A long knife was in his hand. A mo-,,
ment it flashed in the electric light
beams as it was raised aloft. Then be
fore even one cry of warning could be
uttered, it descended with terrible force.
The president fell back on the seat of
the carriage while one hand pressed his

entitled to the designation "Old Glory,"
those adopted by Uncle Sam 117 years
ago certainly are. The flag of the United
States is older than the m ijority of the
flags of European nations flying to-day.
The flag of Great Britain was adopted
in 1801, or twenty-four years after that
of the United States. The flag of Spain
was adopted in 1785, while the tri-color
of France, also the red, white and blue,
took form in 1794. The flag of Portugal
was adopted in 1810, that of Italy in 1848,
and that of the German empire in 1871,
so that the starry banner of the United
States may be" called the "Old" flag.
The Stars and Stripes also have been
through more battles and have waved
over more victories, both on the seas and
the land, than any other flag flying in
any part of the world to-day. Its near
est competitor is the flag of Great
Britain, but bince 1800 British victories
on land and sea have been inconsidera
ble as compared with those of the Unit
ed States. More lives have been given
up and more limbs sacrificed in the de
fense of the Stars and Stripes than for
any JMiropean nag. Uver a million men
have died in order that that pretty bunt
ing might remain unsullied, and an
army of 25,000,000 unenlisted men
stands ready to-day to see that no dis
honor befalls Old Glory.
The flag of the United States undoubt
edly was suggested by the national flag
of Netherlands, which at that time con
sisted of three horizontal stripes sym
bolic of the rise of the Dutch republic.
Netherlands was often referred to by the
founders of the United States as a model
for our present form of government, and
it was frequently quoted in the debates
in the Constitutional convention. On
June 14, 1777, the American congress re
solved that the flag of the thirteen states
should be thirteen stripes, alternate
red and white, and that the Union be a
blue field with thirteen white stars ar
ranged in a circle indicating "a new con
stellation" among the nations of the
earth, the idea of the flag being that
each star and each stripe should repre
sent one of the thirteen original states.
In 1794, on the admission of Kentucky
and Vermont into the Union, the fiag
was made with fifteen stars and fifteen
stripes, but on July 4, 1818, it was
changed so that there should be the or
iginal thirteen stripes, while a new star
was to be added for each state.
The stars and stripes, in the course of
117 years, has been carried into all quar
ters ef the globe and into all navigable
corners of the ocean. It has floated from
some of the highest mountain peaks in
the world, and has been carried down
into the iowest caves and coal pits. It
waves to-day over more nationalities
than any other flag on earth. Then let
the eagle scream and the small boy
shout! Hurrah for the Stars and
Stripes!! N. Y. Sun.

Marvelous Results From a letter
written by Rev. J. Gunderman, of Di
mondale, Mich., we are permitted to
make this extract: "I have no hesita
tion in recommending Dr. King's Hew
Discovery, as the results. were almost
marelous in the case of my wife. While
I was pastor of the Baptist church at
Rives Junction she was brought down
with Pneumonia succeeding La Grippe.
Terrible paroxysms of coughing would
last hours with little interruption and it
faeemed that she could not survive them.
A friend recommended Dr. King's New
Discovery; it was quick in its work and
highly satisfactory in results." Trial

morbus very severely. The night e'erk
at the hotel where he stopping happen
ed to have a bottle of Chamberlain's
Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy
and gave him three doses which relieved
him and he thinks saved his life. Every
family should keep this remedy in their
home at all times. No one can tell how
soon it may be needed. It costs but a
trifle and may be the means of saving
much suffering and perhaps the life of
