The apple orchard of Mr. T. C. Henry

the limbs of the trees being so heavily
loaded with fruit that they are unable

have broken and hang only by the bark.
The apples are perfectly developed and
as a whole it is more suggestive of a
picture than of dumplings and pie.
Had the republicans of Dickinson
county been without an organ and one
should have been commenced at the

county would have immediately rallied

as one man to the support of their new
organ the Reflector . And we take
this occasion to say that our columns
are open to our republican friends to
reach their democratic customers; and
the amount of patronage already given
us by the republicans is highly appre
ciated. LADIES CAN NOW

Mrs. Maggie Crane, through the com

Probate Judge Culbertson last Satur
day to have her sanity or insanity
passed upon. The case was adjourned
by the Judge until nine o'clock, Mon
day morning, when it was dismissed.
Mrs. Crane has not been living here
very long, and has been guilty of no
very dangerous outburst. Sheis prob
ably of a nervous and hysterical organi
zation, and that is all.
Alumni Gathering.
The Abilene High School classes of
'S2 and 'S3 met at the handsome and
pleasant residence of Judge Mahan, last
Friday evening, to enjoy themselves
and to strengthen the alumni associa
tion into a permanent society. Vocal
and instrumental music, recitations,
readings and orations came before the
fine and excellently prepared supper,
and after the gastronomic exercises
were finished the tables were cleared
away and the "light fantastic" was in
dulged in. The evening was voted a
very profitable and enjoyable one by
those present.
The Farmers' Alliance.
Pursuant to adjournment, the Dick
inson County Alliance met in Conven
tion at the court house in Abilene last
Saturday afternoon. "While the gather
ing was a very respectable one, it was
not so large as it might have been. It
had been resolved at a previous meet
ing to nominate an Alliance County
ticket, but after some discussion the
resolution was reconsidered, and the
Convention adjourned, without making
any nominations, to meet on the first
Saturday in October. The Reflector
believes that the Alliance did a wise
thing in not nominating a ticket. The
members of it are now at liberty to vote
for whom they please, and it is not
doubted that they will vote wisely and
well.

Of Biblical Origin. --
Abilene is notaword,asmanythink,of
no meaning except as applied as a name
to this city to designate it from other
cities. The historical association of
the word is peculiarly interesting to the.
christian and Bible student. It was
the name of a city in the region of Da
mascus, and was in its glory at the
time John was baptizing in the Jordan.
Josephus, the historian, informs us
that Abilene, in the Hebrew language,
signifies "green meadow," and that it
was a city often visited by John the
Bapti'it, and our Saviour often
found it an oasis in the desert of his
persecutions and afflictions. May the
name of our beautiful city be ever per
petuated as leading us into meadows
green by the side of still waters. See
Luke iii: 1.

A Fine Sermon.
Rev. Dr. Bowers, of the Lutheran
Church, preached a very fine sermon
Sunday morning on the relations of the
past to the present. The Dr.'s remarks
took a practical turn and were full of
democratic doctrine, and the Reflec
tor is glad to welcome so distinguished
and able a man to the ranks of immac
ulate democracy. The Dr. is an anti
monopolist and an anti-prohibitionist,
or, if not an anti-prohibitionist, he is
clearly opposed to the maimer hi which
the advocates of prohibition are forcing
the question. lie is opposed to radi
calism and fanaticism, and the Re
flector agrees with him. The Re
flector would be pleased to welcome
the Dr. to its sanctum.
Serious Accidents.
One day last week, while plowing
near a hedge, Mr. John Books, one of
the most prominent farmers of Liberty
township, was unfortunate enough tb
have a very fine mare step in between
the rollers and get both of her fore feet
cut nearly off. She is a very fine driv
ing mare, valued' at $150.00, and her
deathjWhich was an inevitable result of
the accident, is greatly regretted by Mr.
Books.
Last Friday, Mr. Jacob Gish, aged
77 years and father of Dr. A. S. Gish,
fell from a bridge which crosses a ra
vine some '1 miles east of town and
sustained a fracture of the left thigh
bone. The old gentleman is resting as
quietly and comfortably as possible, but
such an accident at his advanced age is
likely to prove serious.
--s
Soldiers and Indians.
Last Saturday afternoon about six
o'clock, a train of eight cars and two
coaches, filled with Uncle Sam's blue
coated regulars, passed through the city
westward bound. The Reflector
man instituted a prompt inquiry, and
found that 400 Indians had broken
loose between Cleveland and Gibson,
near the west boundary of the State,
and were on the rampage. The situa
tion was telegraphed- .to Fort Riley,
some twenty-eight miles from here.
A regular train, standing on the track
at Abilene, was abandoned, and the en
gine, with eight cars and two coaches,
was started for Fort Riley, for the col
ored troops stationed there. The sol
diers seemed to be in good spirits at the
prospect of an exciting break in the
monotony of barrack life, but whether
they have had a chance to "light no
bly" is not known at this writing.
An Eventful Day.
Last Saturday was an eventful day,
and the editors wished that the Re
flector had been a daily. And one
of the noticeable metropolitan charac
ters of our city is its carelessness and
indifference as regards exciting local
events. Last Saturday the Farmers'
Alliance met in convention; there was
a big fight in a south side saloon; a cra
zy woman was before the Probate court;
a young man committed suicide; a
prominent business man was arrested on
the charge of embezzlement,and ten cars
of soldiers whizzed through on their way
to quell the Indian outbreak on the fron
tier of the State. But there was not a
ripple of excitement apparent anywhere;
there was no gathenng ot knots of peo
ple to talk about the eveuts, and busi
ness was not inteiTupted. This fact is
another strong proof to support the
claim that Abilene possessee all the ele
ments of a metropolitan city; and, by
the. way, she is going to be the metropo
lis of Central Kansas,' isn't she?

A Sad Fatality.
TjJlsf". RllfrimlsiV PVfminnr nni -ftanrVlnw-if if
were startled by the report that Franfc
tMiimeu, me iv ,)eiir om son or alt. Jri. '
C. Junken, had shot himself through
the head. Investigation proved the
truth of the,report, and the sad and
awful fact faced the community like a
dark, ominous cloud.
There was no evidence that the young
man had. purposely shot liimseK. He
had a happy home' and was pleasantly
surrounded. His disposition, however,
was quiet, almost morose in its melan
choly, and by some it is thought that,
in a moment of morbid insanity, he de
liberately fired the shot which ended
his young life.
The death is keenly and sorrowfully
felt by the family, who are numbered
among our best people. The funeral
services were held at the family resi
dence Sunday afternoon at four o'clock,
and was attended by a large concourse
of son-owing friends. His mortal re
mains were intened in the city ceme
tery. At the the coroner's inniiesfc tha fol
lowing testimony was received:
Air. jimKen. father of the bov, testi
fied: "Thursdav at sunuer. he "told me
that he was going out to Major Dowl-
mg s to help lam thresh. He came
home Saturday. At half-past three in
the afternoon he went up town on an
en-and for his mother, came back, made
a fire in the cook stove and then went
up stairs to his room, where I found
him a short time after lying on a bed
on the floor, dead, with a bullet hole in
his head above the right ear, an Ameri
can "Bull Dog" pattern pistol, 38 cali
bre, lying under his hip, one load dis
charged and four others in the pistol.
I think his death must have been due
to an accident, for I know of no cause
that would have made him commit an
act of this kind. Found him at 6 1-2
o'clock.
Mr. A. Shane testified that between
four and five o'clock Saturday afternoon,
Frank came to his store and asked for
his postol, saying that he had a chance
to sell it. Saw nothing wrong in his
conduct.
Geo. Ogden testified that Frank came
to his store on Thursday and offered
his pistol for sale. He wanted $7.00
for it. Offered to trade him something
for it. He bought nothing afthat
time. Pistol was not loaded. -' ; ''
Dr. Austin testified th'atlie'-was called
about seven o'clock, found Frank lying
on his back with bullet hole in his head
above right ear. Had been dead some
time. Died from effects of the "wound.
The following is the verdict of the
jury:
"We, the jury, impanneled in the
case of Coroner's inquest on the body
of Frank Junkeii, find that he came to
his death by a pistol shot, from his own
hand."

A Complete Establishment.
There are but few towns of equal or
greater size, that have as many large
business houses as Abilene. This state
ment has become and will remain a tru
ism. And among those that stand at
the head of the list, the firm of Irion &
Armitage is prominent. We enjoyed
the pleasure of being shown through
this immense establishment, and with ,
the exception of clotliing and groceries,
everything that is needed for the com
plete furnishing of a home is kept in
stock. Queensware, Willowware, Tin
ware, Stoves, &c.; lamps, sewing ma
chines, organs, tables, chairs, etc.,
fill the lower floor. The upper floor is
given up to furniture, and all qualities
and styles are represented. Fiirniture
in sets and single pieces at prices to
suit the purchaser. Irion & Armitage
stand at the head of house-furnishing
firms, and those who contemplete be
ginning housekeeping as well as those
who are old and experienced in the needs
of a comfortable home, should remem
ber this fact. The firm will take great
pleasure in showing all interested
through their establishment, and the
time so devoted by the sight-seer will
be well expended.
