issued 3 first grade certificates, 29 sec
ond, 125 third and have refused certifi
cates to 59 applicants.
The folly of nominating for District
Clerk a man like Neumiller who is
practically a Saline county resident,
most of his worldly goods being in thai
county, is becoming painfully appareni
to the Democracy.
Editor-Crary says: If any one asks
youaffcer election-why Dr. Tobey didn't
get more votes in Hope, tell them it is
because of the speech he inflicted upon
the people sometime in September and
they haven't forgotten it yet.
Miss Carrie Dyal, who so charminglj
represented the Reflector in the
Trades Display, was honored by being
chosen to make, the presentation speech
Saturday evening. Miss Carrie was
the recipient of; many sincere compli
ments for her admirably performed du
ties and attractive appearance,
One of Dr. Tobey's '-unanswerable
arguments" at the Hope speech the
other night was a bottle of whisky that
he took from his coat pocket and shook
at the audience. It is getting so that
Democratic orators are walking saloons
and they have so little sense that they
must show 'their shame to their audiences.'
County Clerk Mike Bert is one of
the most accommodating officers we
""have seen in these parts for many a
year. If anyone wants information
i frorashls office he has only to -let his
K wantsfbe known in order to get it.
Such officers are few and far between,

rue closing Trades JJispiay enter
tainment Saturday evening was wit
nessed by fully as large an audience as
was present on Friday night. The
program as given in Saturday's Re
flector was carried out in full and
with the same charming attractiveness
as bpfore. One feature not down on
the bill was the presentation by Dr. M.
II. llewett, of a gold-headed silk um
brella to J. B. Lancaster. It was ten
dered him by the ladies in appreciation
of his efforts in drilling the military
company. Dr. Uewett's speech was
an apt one and expressed, the kindly
feelings of the ladies toward Mr. L.
When Dr. Uewett had closed. Miss
Carrie Dyal stepped from the ranks and
presented Captain Lancaster with a
Huge wooden sword making the follow-
ng neat aud appropriate address:
Captain Lancaster, in behalf of the

A SAD ACCIDEiMT.
A Little Child Drinks a Solution of
Morphine and Dies Almost In
stantly. Last week there took place an ac
cident by which a little two-years-old
child lost its life. Dr. D. I Young,
the veterinary surgeon, returned to his
home on Spruce street about five o'clock
from a trip into the country where he
had been attending a sick horse. He
had a solution of morphine, perhaps a
teaspoonful of the deadly drug being
dissolved, in a teacup on the dining
room table. He left the cup standing
there while he put away his surgical
instruments and when he returned he
was horrified to see his little boy
Austin drinking the poison. Medical
aid was at once summoned and every
thing that human power could do was
done in the effort to save the little fel
low's life. All was in vain and about
two hours later the sufferer sank into
the arms of death.
Austin was a cheery, bright child
and the bereaved father and mother
are almost heartbroken at the loss the
more so on account of tne accident by
which he lost his life. Their many
friends will extend to them the most
sincere sympathy in their sorrow.
Arrangements aie rapidly being com
pleted for the fall race meeting; Oct.

making up the docket for the October
term of the District court which con

The list of cases comprises
already about 270 civil and 10 criminal.
The latter may be added to by the
grand jury. The docket is the largest
ever known in the county being larger
than that of last term., At 'the last"
session nine weeks were given to the
cases and even then 110 cases were post
poned to the coming term. The Oc

The human digestive apparatus is
one of the most complicated and won
derful things in existence. It is easily
put out of order.
Greasy food, tough food, sloppy food,
bad cookery, mental worry, late hours,
and many other things which ought
not to be, have made the American
people a nation of dyspeptics.
But Green's August Flower has done
a wonderful work in reforming this sad
business and making the American
