Mr. C. S. Crawford announces in our
columns today as a candidate for
county attorney of Dickinson county
subject to the decision of the Republi
can county conyention. Mr. Crawford
is a good lawyer and has practiced at
the bar in this county for several years.
Should he be nominated and elected
we have no hesitancy in saying that he
will till that office to the entire satis
faction of the people of this county.
"Our Burton" is looming up as an
agriculturist, as witness the following
from the Commonwealth:
Hon. J. R. Burton, of Abilene, told
a Commonwealth reporter last evening
that he had just finished threshing
twenty-four acres of oats when he
started to the convention. The crop
averaged eighty-one bushels to the acre
which is quite satisfastory even in
Kansas. All the grain out that way
has done well this year and bounteous
harvests are heard from all along the
As will be seen in our columns, C. S.
Crawford today announces himself as
a candidate for nomination for County
Attorney before the Republican con
vention. Mr. Crawford has made for
himself an enviable reputation by his
legal ability and sterling worth. As a
lawyer and as city attorney for Abilene
he has proved himself capable of be
ing trusted. Should he be successful
in securing the nomination he will
make a winning race.

and about $200 worth of dry goods,
jewelry, etc., taken. There is no clue

this city the first of this week.
Life's Fever O'er.
Thursday at three o'clock died the
20-months-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Ed
ward Yedden, of summer complaint.
The little fellow was a winsome child
and it was hard indeed for the parents
to give him up. They, however, seek
consolation in the belief that he rests
happily in the land where the cares and
troubles of earthly existence are not
known and the temptations of this life
are not to be met with.

Breathes Her Last.
About a mouth ago Miss Lillie M.
Quinn arrived here from California
where she went early in the spring,
hoping to gain relief from that terrible.
scourge, consumption. She had been
but little benefited and not feeling able
to continue her journey to her home,
Bloomington, 111., she, with her sister
who accompanied her, stopped off in
Abilene where they remained until to
day with a married sister, Mrs. W. F.
Blanden, on West Fiftli street.
The stricken one has been growing
steadily weaker and at 12 o'clock
Thursday night breathed her last.
The deceased was a fine-natured,
cultured young lady, 22 years of age,
just blossoming into the wealth ot
womanhood. It seems almost cruel to
have such snatched from us, when they
might do so much for the world and
Short funeral sen-ices were held Fri
day at the house, Dr. J. L. McKeehan
officiating, and at noon the remains,
carefully embalmed, were placed en
the east bound train and accompanied
by G. W. Quinn, abrothbr, who arrived
from Bloomington Saturday evening to
be at the bedside of his dying sister,
and Miss Quinn, the sister who hns
been with the deceased during her ill
ness, were started on their long journey
to Bloomington where the interment
will be made.
The sorrowing group at the depot en
listed the sympathies of all. The be
reaved sister in this city will have the
condolence of all who know of the sad
death of her young relative.
In the Wrong Patch.
Four Abilene bojs went out after
wild plums Tuesday afternoon and
either accidentally or otherwise got into
the grounds of Wm. Jones, southwest
of tlie city and picked some of the fruit
whioh was there gi owing luxuriantly.
The gentleman objected to having his
plums taken to market in that way and
had the boys arrested for trespassing.
They were examined today and their
trial was set for Monday at 2 p. m.

I noticed an article in the Gazette of
the 24th inst. relative to the quartette
of barbers who skipped the city about
ten days ago, "being the leaders of the
colored people of Abilene and vicinity."
As a member of that race I cannot
see or know by what authority they
style themselves "leaders" of the col
ored people id this county. 1 do not
admit anyone, man, or set of men, to
be leaders of any class of citizens
whether they are black or white, when
they are men who get drunk and follow
such low devices as gambling and liv

The human digestive apparatus is
one of the most complicated and won

Greasy food, tough food, sloppy food,

not to be, have made the American
people a nation of dyspeptics.

a wonderful work in reforming this sad
business and making the American
people "so healthy that they can enjoy
their meals and be happy.
