The Berry & Prendergast Land Co.
Wednesday closed one of the largest
land sales ever made in this city or
county. The gentlemen, as has been
known, about six years ago purchased
nearly 250,000 acres of land lying in
Ottawa county, northeast of Minneap
olis. The land was in a wild state
when they bought it, but they have
fenced it, opened springs, put farmers
upon part of it, and generally improved
it so as to make the tract a valuable
estate. Eastern capitalists have been
recently looking at the land and a syn
dicate composed of opulent real estate
men of St. Louis, Chicago and Alton,
Ills., purchased ten sections of the
property, sill but two lying in one body.
For this tract, all fenced and somewhat
improved, they paid the neat sum of

Practice vs. Theory.
During several days of last week one
of our distinguished Democrats was
busily engaged in soliciting aid for the
establishment of a pottery in Abilene.
Fie talked loud and long and enthusi
astically in favor of the project. He
besieged the merchant, the banker, the
lawyer, the farmer, the editor, the me
chanic, the laboring man, the minister,
the doctor, and to all produced many
and cogent reasons why it was to the
interest of every one of them to render
substantial aid toward encouraging
this manufacturing industry to locate
in Abilene. By his unanswerable logic
this Democrat induced the good people
of Abilene to give solid assistance to
this enterprise, and we all hope that
thereby the pottery may be established
in our midst. We know that what
little we give toward encouraging such
enterprises will be returned to us four
fold. But the sequel of our story is yet to
come. On Saturday that same loud
talking Democrat was on our streets
again, not for the purpose of aiding and
encouraging manufacturing industries
to locate in Abilene, but for the more
audable purpose of talking politics.
He was just as enthusiastic as when
bagging for the pottery, but his argu
ments were all against aiding and as
sisting home industries. Every cent
imposed upon the people to encourage
home industries was a "robber tariff."
.bveiy cent paiu to am or assise in
building up the woolen industries, the
cotton industries, the iron industries,
the pottery industries, was so much
bread taken from the mouths of the
people. In all his talk this free-trade
Democrat never once alluded to the
benefits to be derived by the people of
Abilene from having a pottery located
in our midst. In practice, a free-trader
has some business sense, and believes
in going down in his pockets to aid
home industries; in theory, he is abso
The Gazette Bern oval.
During the last two or three weeks a.
scheme to establish a morning daily
paper for Salina has been placed before
the business men. The plan was to
unite the Abilene Gazette with the Sa
line County Journal and make a Eepub
lican paper. It was plain from the
first that Eepublicans felt the necessity
of doing something and for that reason
we were inclined to believe that the
scheme would go through. The Herald
has not fought it because it can only
be determined by experience whether
or not Salina will support two daily
papers. Having been in position to
know of the support for a daily paper
in Salina, we are loth to believe that
the move is a good one or advisable at
this time. However, this has nothing
to do with the case, it is generally un
derstood today that the paper is a cer
tainty and that all arrangements for
rts removal from Abrlene wrii he per-
iected tonrght. For the Herald we
can say that it is a much better paper
than the city has supported or warrant
ed and we hope by a lively competition
with a good morning paper to get a
better support for the future than in
the past. LSaiinaHerald, Saturday. .

Mrs. Richardson, wife of Col. John
C. Eichardson, a prominent citizen of
Carthage, Mo., d5ed yesterday morning
at about half past ten o'clock, at the
residence of her son-in-law Mr. John
C. Lyeth on Buckeye avenue. She
was in her sixty-eighth year.
As the family wished to bury her at
their old home, funeral seieices, con
ducted by Eev. F M. Torch, assisted
by Rev. S. O. Humphrey, were held at
their residence last evening at 8 o'clock
and at half past nine they left over the
Santa Fe for Carthage, Mo. The Arion
Quartette, whose singing the deceased
had enjoyed so much duringher illness,
conducted the song service which was
most beautiful and impressive.
Mrs. Richardson's death was a sad
one, she having stopped off on her way
home to visit her daughter, Mrs. J. C.
Lyeth. During the past winter, at
tended by her faithful and loving grand
daughter, she had lived at Tucson,
Arizona, hoping that the climate would
benefit her health. But not finding re
lief there she was on her way home
when the desire to see her daughter in
her Abilene home caused her to alter
her plans. Exactly three months from
the day she came to Abilene she left itJ
for her brighter and happier home
For a period of a few days after her
arrival here she enjoyed comparatively
good health, after which she took her
bed, never to arise. During her final
illness she suffered untold physical
agony, but she bore it with the forti
tude and patience of a true christian.
Xever a murmur of complaint escaped
her but with a hopefulness that encour
aged even her physician she cheered
those who waited on and loved her.
Yestsrday morning, surrounded by her
family and free from pain, she peace
fully and calmly entered her final rest.
Scarcely had the church bells ceased
pealing forth their joyful summons
when her spirit taking up the glad re
frain joined that happy chorus above
in their service of love about the throne
of her Master. It was the joyful ter
mination of a busy and eventful life,
and as a true disciple of Christ she has
gone to enjoy the reward of the faith
ful faithful to her husband, faithful
to her children, faithful to her God.
