titudc of competitors fr the prize ,
f public power. Admitting all
these facts which we must do, is it
not time that wo were preparing
our boys for the great responsibili
ty of life? The teacher in the pub
lic schools ami the young loving
mother bending over her baby boy
in the cradle have it in their power
to make the future what they
would have it. Let our schools
and the family circle lie the fomi-dation-of
true patriotiin, then will
we be able to build up a-strong and
safe government with a national
patriotism too fearful lor any foe-to
face. If our boys receive the prop
er training, are educated in keep
ing with the intention of the found
ers of our great free school system,
if our fathers will only meet the
mothers half way in this great
work, teaching their boys by ox
ample as well a by precept, that
loafing around billiard halls, fre
quenting drinking saloons and
gambling hells,that fumes of whis
ky and tobaoco arc not character
istics of cither a gentleman or a
sood citizen, much of a needed re
form will have been accomplished.
Fathers, stop and consider this
question from a moral and a busi
ness standpoint- Look on your
boy in the cradle and estimate his
present value twenty years hence
and ask yourself if you can afford
to take any ri&ks, for upon that
boy and those who are to come
after him will depend in part the
future weal or woe of our country.

Caldwell Journal. Mr. J. P.
Richmond called Monday, and
give us a pleasant game of talk
concerning ranch matters,boouicis,
etc. Mr. Richmond has had a
lively time with the boomers this
summer.and would have had sever
al good farms broken out down
there to rent next vear if he had
I not filed his objections to the class
of work that was being aonc ior mm.
His objections were tiled in such a
manner that the court had to sus
tain them. i. e., four double
barreled shot-guns, two Winches
ters, aft w revolvers and a good
lease from the proper authorities
a full hand, so to speak.
Advance. Chetopa now has a
population, including the addi
tions of Steven, Kendall and
Wright, of nearly 2,500. This is a
better showing by far than she
has ever made in her his
tory. At one time soon after the
M."K. & T. was completed to this
point, and the town was on a big
boom, an assessor remarkably good
at figures and of extravagant ideas
of Chetopa's greatness reported
that wc had a population of 2,500.
But it was well known that the
population was largely overestimat
ed, and besides, a large proportion
of our population was of a floating
or transient character.
