This is the Disc Plow You
Need to do Your Fall
There are twd essential qualities necessary to the quick sale and purchase of a Disc
Plow and these two are: First, the QUALITY. Second, the PRICE. I am pleased to
announce to you that these two essential qualities have been carefully : considered in offering
to you the KlflGMAN DISC PLOW fothe price mentioned and this plow, is guaran
teed to you to do its work successfully or it costs you nothing. This proposition is surely
definite and certain and you understand that this plow will do the work or no sale. I have
sold a car load of these plows within the last fifteen days, which is a sure test of the merits
of the KINGMAN DISC PLOW.
The time to buy a Buggy is when you get the QUALITY and the PRICE. I. am
making a SPECIAL RUN, just now, on the Buggy line.. If you need a Buggy, Road Wagon
or a Carriage, be sure to see me while you can get the benefit of these BIG, CUT PRICKS
which I am making, now, for a short time.
Remember, lam ready to supply you with a GRAIN DRILL, the SUPERIOR,
and remember that over one-half of the Grain Drills sold in the state of Kansas are of the
SUPERIOR make. The improved 1904 SUPERIOR DISC DRILL will certainly please you
if you contemplate buying a drill.
Read this again, and remember as I said to you before,
I am yours for better prices,

Democratic Mass Conventions.
A mass convention of Edwards
county democratic voters is hereby
called to meet at the court house in
Kinsley on Saturday, July. 30. at 2:00
p. m. sharp, for the purpose of elect
ing four delegates and four alternates
to attend the state convention to be
held at Topeka August 3; and also to
i . i i ji . i . :i
convention. T. H. Evans,
B. F. Tatum,
At the same time and place as
above mentioned it is hereby directed
that four delegates and four alter
nates be selected to attend the demo
cratic congressional convention . at
Great Bend on August 9.
D. L. Heath,
The recent reduction of 12$ per cent
in the wages of the mill hands at Fall
River, Rhode Island, will hardly pro
mote Roosevelt's chances of carrying
that state this fall.
Willian Allen White says that there
is no doubt but that every honest man
on the republican state ticket will be
elected, but he neglects to state how
they are to be picked out from the
rest of the crowd.
The strike of the packing house em
ployes, which seemed practically set
tled a week ago, is now more hopeless
than ever. The chances favor a gen
eral strike and if it comes about meat
will be a luxury.
as a democratic nominee in the state
E. W. Hoch, republican candidate
for governor, in a recent Chatauqua
address, stated that the ignorant man
should not be allowed to vote. Sup
plement this with the additional re
publican belief that all are ignorant
who do not vote the republican ticket,
and the thing is greatly simplified.
The United States supreme court
has granted a writ of error in the
Burton case and it will probably be
heard this fall. We have always
contended that the senator would
never be punished for his crimes,
there are too many others in the same
boat. His case will not be heard
until after the fall election and then
some convenient loop-hole' will be
found for his escape. It is not that
the leaders of his party are unwilling
that he should be sacrificed, but it
would look bad for the party.
Webb McNall again goes to bat
and the republican umpire delares
him out. A short time ago the popu
lists of Smith county nominated Webb
for county attorney and closed the
mouths of republicans ' who were
claiming that he had back-slid to the
republicans. Now comes the honora
ble Webb and declines the nomination
and the republican press shouts with
one accord: "I told you so." As a
matter of fact McNall is the national
head of the A. O. U. W. and his time
is fully occupied with the duties of his
office and he has no time to devote to
politics at present. It is safe to say
that when his term expires he will
have something of interest to say and
it will not please the republicans.
Ex-Mayor Walbridgc, of St. Loui,
has been nominated by the republi
cans of Missouri for governor. He
has about as much chance of election
The republicans have finally "dis
covered" Bryan. When he was the
standard bearer of bis party he was &
"wild eyed crank," but now that the
leadership has been wrested from his
grasp he Is the "greatest democrat of
them all." Bryan is to-day what he
has been for the past eight years,
the peer of any man in the nation.
The fact of the matter is that he is a
great disappointment to the republi
cans who confidently expected that he
would bolt after the St. Louis conven-

year and three others were awarded fellowships. In a recent speech, E. W.
Hoch, republican candidate for governor, said: "I would rather have a
diploma from Bethany, with all that it signifies -and means, than a deed to
the best farm in McPherson county without it." ,

tion and disrupt his party. Bryan
believes in the rule of the majority
and will stand by his party even
though the party does not follow the
course he believes best, for he doubt
less believes that it can not follow any
course that will not be better than the
one the republicans will follow if con
tinued in power.
The republican papers are pointing
with pride to the balance in the state
treasury this year and the fact that
while the state levy was 6.4 mills last
year, this year it will be only 5.2. As
a matter of fact this very condition of
affairs is proof positive of republican
rascality. In a controversy last year
Mr. Albaugh stated that the raising
of state taxes by the state board of
equalization was for the sole purpose
of gathering in a half million of dol
lars that were not needed for the state
but solely for the purpose of swelling
the fund to be deposited in banks by
State Treasurer Kelly that he might
draw the interest on this vast sum of
public money for his own private
gain. Present conditions show that
Albaugh was right and that the rais
ing of state taxes last year was a pri
vate graft. This year an effort will
be made to prove that the lowering of
the levy is due to economy in the dis-v
charge of public trust. Is the collec
tive public a chump?
The war situation n the east shows
the usual Jap gains during the past
week. The Russians are being steadi
ly driven to the north, and Port Ar
thur sees no chance of relief. The
siege of the latter place is making but
little progress as the Russians still
hold the forts although the Japs are
steadily closing their grip tighter on
the doomed fortress.' On the water
things are rather quiet. The Vladi
voetock squadron is scouting off the
coast of Japan but finds but little to
do. The Jap vessels in front of Port
Arthur are doing guard duty and' oc
casionally torpedo a Russian vessel
of the lesser type. Both' sides seem
to be using great care not to risk
their large vessels. 5 The action of
Russia in taking neutral vessels is
causing complications that may in
volve other nations. It has been sug
gested that she is trying to get into
trouble with England so that she can
gracefully retire from the Jap war
under pretext of her inability to fight
both Japan and England.
The populist and, the democratic
state conventions will assemble in
Topeka next Wednesday to name a
state ticket. There seems to be but
little doubt but the two conventions
will name a joint ticket. Dale, of
Wichita, will probably be nominated
for governor and J. H. Curran, of
Topeka, for secretary of state. Can
didates do not seem' to be very thick
and the chances are in favor of a
quiet convention. The question of
fusion will be fought out but as -the
only chance of success lays in com
bining the opposition to. the republi
cans, it seems probable that there will
be but liitle difficulty in accomplish
ing this result. Mr. Curran has been
secretary of the populist organization
for several years and is one of the
most popular men in the state. Thor
oughly posted and a good mixer he
will add strength to the ticket and his
nomination will convince the rank
and file of the party that fusion is ef
fected in good faith, not for the bene
fit of pie hunters but in the interest of
success, in state affairs. Dale will be
satisfactory to all as his popularity
at home is evidence' that he has been a
worker in the fusion ranks and at the
same time has the confidence of the
people regardless of uolitics. '

TO BUYERS OF
THE A. HOTTEWITZ Stock of General Merchandise has been pur
chased by the Edwards County Co-Operative Association. This
change of ownership necessitates first a quick and complete clearance
of all stocks of seasonable goods now in this store. They will average over
ninety per cent absolutely new, seasonable, desirable goods. All were splendid
values at the regular prices. The reductions we will make cluring this forced
sale we know will interest the most unconcerned.
Just a few words here about the new firm and the future of this busi
ness. Our plans are revolutionary and far-reaching. We shall make this a
bigger, better, and stronger store than it ever was. Its name will stand for
honest merchandising along modern lines. Our success will lie in the conscien
tious consideration of our patrons' interests. We will carry the best merchan
dise of all grades that cash will buy. We will .buy it and sell it for as little
money as any store in the state. .
We invite the people of Kinsley and vicinity to judge us by what, we do
to come and see. No one will be importuned to buy. Those who do buy will
have our guarantee of absolute satisfaction or money back.

meeting of the state committee last
week. A short time before he had
called a meeting of the state com
mittee at which he was the whole
thing, the other members having
failed to put in an appearance. He
slept on the situation and finally
made up his mind as to a mode of
procedure. He called another meet
ing of the committee and advertised a
banquet. The members of the com
mittee began to take notice but show
ed no sign of starting. Then he re
solved on a master stroke. He went
to the railway offices and procured
passes for the members. These were
sent out and the result was accom
plished. The members came, ate and
were happy that is, they were happy
until they began to examine the situa
tion. Richards started trouble by
stating that the four hundred "wet"
voters in his county, who had been
voting the republican ticket, could
not be depended upon unless Hoch
would give them the usual assurance
that he would not "allow his prohibi
tion principles to interfere with their
getting wet when they desired. Stubbs
insisted that this was a question with
which the governor had nothing -to
do. The row was continued among
the representatives of Leavenworth,
Wyandotte, Miami-and other coun
ties until Stubbs was glad to break
up the meeting to stop the disturb
ance. But Stubbs learned his lesson
and as he laid his head on the head
quarters' feather that night he aid to
himself: ''The next time I call that
committee together I will send passes
only to the fellows whom I know will
agree with me, and thus the campaign
may be conducted along, harmonious
lines' f "-
