According to the assessor's returns
there were in Allen county last year 828
sheep and 1,147 dogs. From the num

At the primary meetings held by
the Republicans next Tuesday, for the
purpose of choosing delegates to the
county convention, it would be well to
remember that township officers are
to be elected this fall and if they desire
to makenominations it will be proper to
attend to it at that time.
The corn crop in Illinois, Iowa,
Minnesota and Wisconsin is reported to
have been greatly damaged by frost, and
undoubtedly our farmers will get a good
priee for their corn. If the damage to
the crop in these states is near so bad
as reported cattle will bo brought here
to winter, which will advance the price
of both corn and hay.
Some American citizens of African
descent were brought before Justice Pul

tribute to the State for disturbing the
peace and quiet of the community the
night previous. And for drunkeness and
the use of obscene language some of
them were up before his honor, the Po
lice Judge, and made like contributions
to the city fund.
We received this week from Eugene
E. Bacon, Secretary of the Neosho Valley
District Fair Association, an extract
from their minutes mentioning some
premiums that were left out of their
premium list. As none of their premium
lists have been distributed in our town
or adjoining country it is useless for us
to publish these extracts. Persons from
here having articles for exhibition at
this fair arc compelled to "go it blind."
By announcement in another col
umn it will be seen that H. W. Talcott
is before the people of this Judicial Dis
trict as a candidate for their suffrages.
He is the present incumbent of the office
by appointment of Governor Oborn,
and during his occupancy of the bench,
has given very general satisfaction, both
to the bar and client. He is noted for
promptness in the transaction of busi
ness and quickly clears s docket and
keeps it so with commendable energy,
thus largely reducing the expenses of
court. Of suave manners and pleasing
address, he makes numerous friends
wherever he goes, and ho will undoubt
edly prove a strong candidate in the
October campaign. Chanute Timet.
One day this week a stranger ap'
proached a justice of the peace on our
streets'and said he wished to see him at
bis office. They proceeded at once to
the office when he informed the justice
that he wished to bo sworn. Upon be
ing asked what he wished to be sworn to
he 'said that he had come to our town
the day before and made ten dollars and
had spent it for a drink of whisky, and
he wished to make an affidavit that he
would not drink any more. The oath
was administered in due form, the stran
ger paid his twenty-five cents and went
his way rejoicing over his resolves to
reform. If it becomes noised abroad that
this justice can administer an oath
strong enough to make men quit such
bad habits we predict for him an exten
sive and lucrative business.
Rev. Mr. Eaton (Uhiversalist) will
preach in the Odd Fellows Hall in this
city, next Sunday, Sept. 2Cth, at 11
A. M. We understand that Mr. Eaton
formerly resided in Marietta, Ohio, and
will be glad to meet his friends of former
years. All are respectfully invited to
H. W. TALCOTT.
It will be seen that Judge Talcott
announces himself a candidate forjudge
of the 7th Judicial.District at the com
ing election. The people of Woodson
county are getting pretty ucll acquaint
ed with the Judge and his manner of
holding court. He is coiiiidercd.a good
judge of law, is a pleasant and agreeable
companion having at the s.une time all
the dignity that is necessary for the po
sition. We do not consider it necessary
to go into a lencthy introduction, as our
people are pretty generally acquainted
with him. Wc shall hate more to say
however, as the campaign progresses.

CHINCH BUG EXTERMINATOR.
Mr. H. F. Rice gives it as his opinion,
after eight years of experience in farm
ing in Kansas, that the worst enemy the
farmers here have is the chinch bug, and
after much study on the f ubject he has
invented and had patented an imple
ment for catching and destroying them.
A strip of land around the fields of grain
to be protected from these pests is bro
ken and finely pulverized, then with
this implement a "V" shaped ditch is
made into which the bugs fall in their
attempts to reach the field and being
unable to get out they are killed by the
heat of the sun. Mr. Rice has experi
mented with this "Exterminator" until
he is confident it is just the thing the
farmers in this State need in a dry sea
son. He has for sale all the terri
tory in the United States, and persons
in the patent right business will proba
bly find it to their interest to cor res
pond with him. The iollowig certifi
cates are from persons who have witness
ed Mr. Rice's experiments in destroying
chinch bugs :
Iola, Kans., March 8th. 1875.
This is to certify that H. F. Rice, the
inventor of an implement to catch
chinch bugs, called upon me to see the
operation of said implement in catching
bugs and that I did see the same with a
full impression on my mind that the
invention is a success and will be a great
J. G. Spencek.
Iola, Kaks., Sept 18th, 1875.
I do hereby certify that I saw a quan
tity of chinch bugs destroyed by the
heat of the sun in a "V" shaped trench,
formed in the dust by H. F. Rice, in
1874. Calvin Rice.
Iola, Kans., Sept 18th, 1875.
I do hereby certify that I saw a "V"
shaped trench, formed by an implement
invented by H. F. Rice for the purpose
of catching and destroying chinch bugs,
into which a quantity of bags were col
lected and from which they could not
escape; and I further certify that the
heat of the sun at harvest time will de
stroy the bugs if exposed to it.
