consideration the following paragraph

s PRODUCE FOR MARKET.
It seems strange that our farmers do
not use better judgment in marketing
their green vegetables. Large amounts
of potatoes are being sent to this and
other markets that are beginning to rot.
A half rotten potato is not worth any
thing and the farmers know that as well
before they start to town with them as
they do after all the vexation of hauling
them around for hours trying in vain to
find some one fool enough to buy them.
Large amounts of cucumbers come in
that have already turned yellow. Oats
are offered that are so damp that they
will heat and sprout in one day's time.
Grass is hauled in that is scarcely wilted
and then men get mad because they
cannot Bell it for hay. Our merchants
do the best they can but cannot save
such parties from the consequences of
their own lack of judgment.

We have received a copy of the
report of the Kansas Central Relief
Committee. It is full and complete,
giving an account of the doings of the
Executive Board from the date oforgau
ization to disbandonment.
One of the early settlers of this
county last winter became disheartened
on account of having raised no corn the
year before and decided to move back to
inaiana wnere ne knew tie could raise
plenty of corn. The corn on one acre of
the farm he left here in Kansas will be
worth more than his entire crop in In
diana. The first time he planted his
corn it failed to come up: the second
time he planted it it came up, but the
weeds came up with it and it has been
so wet ever since that he never got to
plow it, and a person unacquainted with
the fact to look at his corn fields would
never known they had been planted in
corn. You can't always sometimes tell
six months in advance where to go to
raise the best corn.
It is a universal rule among pub
lishers to pay no attention to communi
cations unless they are signed. Not
worth while to send an unreceipted bill
to a printing office. If the printer owes
you anything make a note of this.
Members of the Republican Central
Committee of this county will please
take notice of the call, published at the
head of the column on the second ;page
of to-day's paper, for a meeting of the
said committee on Saturday the 21st inst.
The weather prophets have given
it up on the weather, but they predict a
great deal of sickness this fall. Remem
ber that Jno. Francis & Co. keep a com
plete stock of drugs and medicines and
an experienced druggist to wait on you,
day or night.
Prairie chickens are not so numerous
as in former years at the commencement
of the hunting season. Too .many of
them were trapped last winter, and if
they are killed off as rapidly for a year
or two more as they were last year they
will be among the things that were.
Some persons were thoughtful enough
when they took down their stoves this
summer to cover the mouths of their
chimneys, and last Friday during the
rain storm when the water poured into
chimneys and washed the soot out on
the walls and floors others wished they
had done the same.
We had one of the heaviest rain
falls a week ago last Friday afternoon,
after we had gone to press, ever known
in this section. The rain just poured
down, and the little 'brooks and creeks
were filled to overflowing in a little
while and the water spread over the low
fiat ground until it looked like a lake.
There was no great damage done, quite
an amount of fencing w:n washed away
in the river and creek but turns as were
also a number of little bridges and cul
verts; one of the support- of the railroad
bridge across Elm creek was washed out,
but a construction train ciine down in
advance of the passenger Saturday eve
ning, and the damage was so far repair
ed that the evening train passed on.
The corn fields in the bottoms were cov
ered with water but no great injury .was
done the corn as the creeks and river
soon ran down when the water disap
peared from the fields.
Editor Register: The yellow blos
somed, rather pretty and innocent look
ing weed, which grows at present so pro
fusely on the public square and other
localities about town is nothing less than
the notorious sand burr, of whose evil
reputation no doubt your readers have
heard. I do not remember ever to have
seen it in Kansas before ; but this year
it has made its appearance simultane
ously in many localities, and is spread
ing with great rapidity. When this
weed secures a foothold it is among the
most persistent and annoying pests with
which the farmer has to contend. In
some localities in Illinois the people
nave Touna it necessary to organize a
war of extermination against it, and
whole neighborhoods devote a day to its
destruction. At present the plant seems
confined mainly to the towns and their
immediate vicinity, with the exception
of one which a lady carefully dug up in
the public square and carried four or
five miles to plant in her garden. I
believe I have seen none hereabouts out
side the corporate limits of Iola. I
therefore suggest that our people take
time by the forelock, and do themselves
and the neighboring farmers a service by
destroying such of these weeds as may
be found in their yards and gardens and
that our efficient street commissioner
perform the same service for those occu
pying the streets and public square.
And it should be done quickly before
any ot the seeds mature or they will be
sure to come again, for there is nothing
in the vegetable kingdom so tenacious
of life as the seed of these same sand
burrs. Yours truly,

We publish to-day a communication
in reference to the yellow blossomed
weed whicHis growing so profusely

writer that they be destroyed is a good
one, and we hope our people will act in

munication was received last week, but
too late for publication.
Last Sunday night some hard-heart
ed wretch, or wretches, went to Mr. Gor-
rell's barn and tore away some stones
from around a well which is in the barn
and took four little pups that were there
and put them into it. .Monday morning
when Air. Gorrell went out to his barn
he discovered the stones torn away from
the well, and heard one of the pups
whine. He at once went down into the
well and found one. floating on some
pieces of boards ; the others were drown
ed. This is a mean wav to nlav a. into
on a man and cruel way to kill dogs.
