CUT OrF IN HIS PRIME,
Over how many homes will a single death
nt times -ast a gloom, nnd how many hearts
weigh down in s-idncs?. The untimely death
of Albert Zeiniiiger is ono of these. His
own loving wife and tender and lovely child,
the home of his mother, and the loving
hi-arts. there, aud the home o! his ow n sister
and those of his half sisters and half broth
ers, all sorrowing over the death of one
bright and promising man. Mrj. Win.
Winch and her daughter returned home y es
terday from Asbton from tho funeral of her
eldest son, w ho died at the age of 27 years
of typhoid malaiia. All the lovo of a wife,
all the tender care of a mother, nl
the skill of two physicians avail
ed nothing. lie breathed his last on
Mond'ty morning, and was buried on Tues
day near his home, i-i which lie and his
young wife had looked forward to spending
so many happy and prosperous days, but
alas, the shadow fell across its threshold.
Albert Zeinnigir,vvho was well known in'this
community, was born at Koekford, Illinois,
in 1S5S. With his young wife he went into
Kingman county six years ago, when his
neirest neighbor was ten miles away. He
and his younger brother built themselves
pleasant and valuable homes. AVith his
mother, sister and brothers, our people
will sympathize especially with his young
wife, who is left to mourn and sigh with
her memories of vanished happy days.

The packing house is now running in full
blast and Cal Stewart is building an office
near the packing iiouse. There wore one
hundred and fifty hog- in the yard yesterday
awaiting their turn to etie. llio victim is
driven up a flight of steps and when he
reaches tho top a trap door is drawn back
and his pv-rkship is knocked in the head
and is then assassinated again by cutting
his throat, after which he i souseel into a
big trough of boiling water, rolled about a
few- times, then pulled onto a big table where
a couple of men make the fur l!y off him at
a lively rate. The .slaughtering capacity is
fifty a day. In the rear is an immense ket
tle in w hie h the lard is rendered. From
this kettle it is dipped into a largo trough,
in which are three faucet, under which bar
rels aro placed and the beautiful hot
stream, clear as water, runs into the barrels.
In the cellar great rows of salt-dried side-,
shoulders and him are stacked tip awaiting
transfer to the smoke bouse. Tho establish

About four yesterday morning some onr
discovered a window of the Citizen's bank
open. Police officer Dan Parks was sent
for, who came down on tho double rpuick all
cocked and primed to tackle the supposed
burglars. On investigation, it was learned
that the janitor had raised it the previous
evening while sweeping out and had forgot
ten to shut it. It appears a little strange
that the vigilant officers whose beat is in the
vicinity failed to discover that open window.
It is now positively settled tliat when Saint
Jack is elected president, Farmer Doolittle
will be tendered the portfolio of state. Doo
little says he will accept, a he thinks it is a
better job than buying wheat at 45 cents
An Eagle reporter overheard a very ani
mated conversation between Dick AValker
and DoolHtie the next day after Doolittle's
annual message to the people of Kan-as,
which able document it will be remembered
appeared in the Eagle a few day ago. Dick
declared thit Fanner was away off with
regard to tho patron taint of Olathc, but
Farmer thought not, and declared with tears
as big as crab apple? in those eyes of his.
that it broke him all up to hear that blessed
saint abused. Farmer had a conversation
with another gentlemen on the same subject,
who asked if he was not afraid of being
hung in effigy. A bystander naively re
marked that there was no danger, because
thero was no telegraph pole long enough to
hang Doolittle's effigy on.
Farmer is just now suffering with all ex-c-cediugly
v indent atieck of prohibition, and
declares positively that he will givebaek
that key. Hie key referred to fits in the
back door of a saloon.
BEFORE THE JUSTICES.
Business in the justice's court i- still
AVednesday a man named Edward Duck
worth swore out a warrant for a boy named
John AV. Ortweiu, charging him with steal
ing $22 from him. When the boy was
brought into court Frank Dale was sent
for and after gathering the circumstances,
changed the charge to embezzlement, and
set the ease for hearing at nine o'clock yes
terday morning. (!. W. C. Jones was re
tained as counsel for the defen-e. AVhcn
the hour for the trial came the dofendant
and other witnesses were on hand, but
Duckworth, the pro-ecuting witness, failed
to file an appearance. A constable was sent
to hunt him up, but it was learned that he
had skipped. The defendant was therefore
In the cae of the state against John
Thonris, charged with stealing ?2S from T.
L Adntm, which was heard by Justice
Hobbs, the accused was found guilty, and
placed under $."00 bonds to answer the
charge at the next term of court.
In Justice Thomas' court the case of the
state nipiinst the Burnett boy s and Brazill
was disposed of. This was an action brought
bv" the stale a-'ainst the defendants on tho
affidavit of E. "L. Montgomery, elnrgin
the defendants with having stolen seventy-
five bushels of corn. ). II. Bently appeared
for the defense, and owing to the fact that
Fiank Dale was engaged in the Thomas
case, before Justice Hobbs, (.Verge ('. Co
wart appeared for the state. Montgomery
h-iving no witnes-es to sustain the charge,
the caBo was dismissed, and the costs. JlO.bO,
were is.e.5cd against Montgomery. Not
being over llu-h in cash he could not pay,
therefore a commitment was is-ued and hi
was placed m liar 'e i.t Colit'ille 1 li'-iim-.
Montgomery probably got th" m liter fix- -1
up, as he was seen at large later in t he ev oil
ing. This case is somewhat mixed, and the
stories of the ouposimr parties an rather
conflicting. Montgomery has been drinking
hard, and probably got things mixed. The

Mum's Dp Goods
The cry of "hard times" has frightened the senior member
of our firm and he says: "This stock must be reduced:" also
that the buyer is too enthusiastic and has bought too heavily,
therefore between now and Christmas we must reduce it one-fourth.
These goods will be slaughtered without mercy and with
but slight consideration for value.
How pleasing it is to be kindly remembered at Christmas. We
strive through the Tear to obtain honors or wealth, and the "Merry
Christmas" time comes and gives all an opportunity of showing to
others that most highly prized and devoutly to be wished evi
dence of genuine friendship and love.
Commencing- December 15th. we will hold a CliristmM Sale.
