At the farmers' meeting in Hope
last week the following anti-chiuch-bug
resolution was adopted:
Besolved, That we are in favor of
discontinuing the raising of wheat foi
the present and until the coincb-bugs
are starved out and got rid of. And
we pledge ourselves to use all honora
ble means and arguments to iiuhice
our neighboring farmers to join us in
accomplishing this end.
A few days ago the farmers were
Baying that it only needed a shower to
insure the corn crop. Well, now the
nhower has come and of course the corn
is insured. Nevertheless that some
bod v will continue to grumble we have
not the least doubt. But we are satis
fied; the com crop cannot be injured
in this countv now and the farmers
who are not chronically depressed may
prepare for a gloriousharvesthome.
Santa Fe Monitor: Stop your croak
ing, vou old grumbler. You say your
wheat is good, your oats above the av
erage, and that your corn is most ex
cellent. What in the name of holy
Moses is the matter then? Do you
want a kind providence to open the
windows of heaven and rain down sil
ver dollars into your fists? You would
croak-then because they were not gold
dollars. Dry up your stomach-ache
about hard times, and be thankful that
you don't have to live on buffalo chips.
You will be a rich man some day if you
will stay on your farm and do your
work well. Why, it is better to be hung
in Kansas than die a natural death any

The Teachers Undergoing the .Grind
of the Examinations Strong Res

o'clock. About twenty are trying for
The arithmetic questions this morn
ing were probably the most idiotic set
of puzzles yet placed before Dickinson
teachers. One half of them are ques
tions regarding mensuration and are
treated of in the last twenty pagesof our
higher arithmetics and are upon topics
that not one teacher in twentj ever
needs to teach at all. Another is a
problem that can be solved only by al
gebra. We seriously doubt if Supt.
Lawhead who drew up the questions
could answer them himself. They are
especially villianous when compared
with those furnished at the last exami
nation, which were extremely easy.
Our examination system is bad enough
itself, but with such dough-headed pro
pounders of questions it becomes be

O. L. Bates,
An exchange has been studying over
the matter and takes this way:
"An editor may print a thousand
good things in his columns each week,
and never hear a word of thanks from
any quarter, but just let him priut one
little exposure of some public wrong or
one word not complimentary to some
citizen, and he will hear it "storm and
thunder in less than five minutes after
the first copy leaves the press."
And this is true too in every com
munity. The Missing Jewelry Eeturned.
This morning the missing breastpin
that was stolen from Mrs. W. T. David
son some weeks ago by the colored girl,
Flo Davis, was found lying upon the
walk leading from Mr. Davidson's
house to the coal house, about two rods
from the back door. The pm was in
good condition and had evidently been
placed there during the night.
The friends or accomplices of the girl
probably became alarmed by last
nicht's storm and their awakened con
sciences prompted tho return of the
pin. The girl is still confined in jail.
A Swede Dies Among Strangers far
from Home and Friends.
The report of a death by sunstroke
brought to the city late yesterday after
noon was in the evening verified and
fuller particulars learned.
The stricken man was 2f. B, Ander
son and had arrived in Enterprise from
Sweden but last week. Yesterday he
began work as a section nana on tne
Santa Fe and went out with the men
to fix the track two miles west of En
terprise. Along about noon he com
plained of feeling ill and rapidly grew
worse, nis companions conveyed him
to the shade of a tree and laid him on
the grass. He did not recover but
sank in strength until about 1 or 2
o'clock when he died.
Coroner Hoisington went to the
.scene of the death and held an inquest.
The jury returned a verdict of death
The poor fellow was friendless,
moneyless and unknown. The coro
