The next republican cotnention will
be held at Minncupoli-. It will come
together on the seventh day of June,
and we might add that Benny Harrison
will be the nominee thereof.
The famous 101 democratic members
of the list Illinois legislature, who held

Washington and use their influence for
Win. M. Springer for speaker.
The fifty women of New Brenen,

During the republican rally at Wel
lington the night following the election,
the office of the People's Voice was
egged, the Alliance Exchange windows
painted and two or three People's party
leaders narrowly escaped the same fate.
Little else could be expected from the
drunken republican mob that gathered
on that occasion.
Governor McKinley is growing owl
ish since his recent election. At Bos
ton the other night he said: "A pro
tective tariff cheapens products; a rev
enue tariff cheapens men." Within
three days after this solemn utterance
a great industry at Boston closed its
doors on account of McKinley s pro
tective tariff, and several hundred men
were thrown upon the labor market to
"cheapen men." Kansas City Star.
AFRAID OF PROHIBITION.
The Kansas City Star is a democrat
ic sheet. It is printed in democratic
Missouri bnt tones its democracy down
a very great deal from the fact that
eight-tenths of its readers live in radi
cal republican Kansas. The Star talks
high license for Missouri and prohibi
tion for Kansas because of the combin
ed facts above alluded to. The Star in
its Monday's issue says that the only
hope for prohibition in Kansas is in the
republican party. Just so. If the
Eagle had a majority of its readers
among the red-nosed democrats of Mis
souri it might with equal propriety, but
no less of hypocrisy, exhort its whisky
soaked patrons down there to stand by
the party of which the Star is the or
gan. There would be no principle in
'such advise, but there would be policy
in it. But the Star sees yet more in
its advocacy of prohibition for the re
publican party in Kansas. The Star
looks at Kansas through spectacles bor
rowed from the democratic victory up
in Iowa, where primarily, prohibition
has wiped out the republican party, and
the Star fears that the republican party
of Kansas might, next jmt, roiu-ludi-
to let tbe prohibitory law take U
chances with other laws ami refuse to
put it into the state platform. That's
what's the matter with the Star as it
regularly rubs the rounded belly of its
entire editorial staff up against the coun
ter of the nearest high license Missou

We have often wondered if there is
a single man in Dodge City, aside from
buyers of grain, who ever give one
thought as to the effect of a very small
increase or decrease in the price of ag
ricultural products. Many of our
merchants little realize how the price
of these products effects tbe ability of
a large portion of tl-eir customers to
buy. The following figures ought to
prove interesting to tho merchant as
well as the farmer.
According to the best reports ob
tainable, Ford county had sown to
wheat this year 20,000 acres. It is
estimated that this crop averaged very
near 15 bushel per acre; but for con-
vecitnee and not to overdraw figures
we will assume it to be 10 bushels per
acre. On this oais the total number
of bushels of wheat raised in Ford
county would be 200,000. This pro
duct at to day's market price, 60 ctt.
per bushel, would bring into Ford coun
ty $120,000. Now, don't think that
this amount is net profit to the farmer.
So far from being that, it probably cost
them $80,000 to produce this graiu, or
at any rate, those who are best inform
ed claim that the average cost of pro
ducing a bushel of wheat for the past
ton years has been just about 40 cents.
This being so, there is a net profit to
"the producers of $40,000. But let" us
My, for . instance, that this wheat

average person looks at it, of 5 cents

ity. But, you ask, to 'iat does all
this tend? To simply this: that,
through unprincipled speculation,
through a contraction of tbe circulating
medium, through extortionate freight
rates :n order that our railroads may
pay dividends upon millions of dollars
of watered stock, and other things of
but little less importance, the profits of
the farmer have been gathered up by
these monopolies, until they now are a
power 111 the land; while the farmer and
those directly dependent upon hiui, the
people of towns like Dodge and even
cities, are made to suffer accordingly.
Some people siy Dodge i supported
by the railroad, and that, in a measure,
is true. It is estimated that the Santa
Fe pays out to employees about $15,
000 each month. This, for one year,
would be $180,000, and every man iu
Dodge City would use his time and mon
ey rather than see this division moved
and this vast amount of money paid out
somewhere else. But, while willing to
turn their energies towards holding this
ast sum here, they arc eq tally unwill
ing that the farmer shou form any
f-ort of an organization which bas for
its end tbe securing of better prices for
his products and, in many places, all
such efforts on his part are laughed to
scorn, and yet, if thev were getting a
SI. 00 a bushel for wheat, and other ag
ricultural products were selling in pro
portion, the farmer, on the crop pro
duced in this county the last year,
would bring into it as clear profit as
much or more than the $180,000 paid
railroad employees We have only
taken this county as an example, and
what is true of it will hold good else
where. Here is a good illustration of where
the farmer's profit goes. Last week
wheat sold in Chicago from 95 to 98
cents per bushel. In Dodge City it
sold from 60 to G5 cents per bushel.
Total nrmber of bushels produced in
Ford county, 200,000; at 95c per
bushel, $190,000; at 05c per bushel,
$130,000; the difference, $60,000, is
the enormous amount paid for trans-
portation and handling; in other woids
the grain speculators and the railroads
get $60,000 for handling and transport

Mncb for the Sonke.
Joseph Brown, who drives the stage
between Galeton and Germania, Pa.,
while on a recent trip, noticed a cat
stealing along through the grass at the
roadside, three miles from here. Brown
stopped his horses and watched the cat
to see what she was after. He glanced
ahead of tbe cat and saw a large pilot
snake, or copperhead, lying in the grass
a few feet away. It was toward this
poisonous snake that the cat was steal
ing. Brown at first thought he would
get out and kill the snake, but con
cluded to see what the cat would do
with the deadly reptile, or what the
snake would do with the cat. The lat

When the cat had approached to within
a foot of the snake she raised one paw

the pilot, and whisked her paw away.
The snake missed it, and as quick as

NOTES ABOUT HAIR.

mat tne low and semi-long coiffures
will surely be introduced, the commit

style of coiffure that has been designed
by the Hair Dealers association of New

to break the hair, which should be

Wars -In Which. They Mar Be
There is a great rage for pretty orna
mental quilts at present and they make
wry desirable gifts for Christmas. The
eld white counterpaned aurfacea are
superseded by flowered cretonnes edged
with a flounce of lace or by embroidered
"Here is an easy way to make a spread
from a coarse linen sheet: Have large
diamonds stamped all over it and work
them in outline stitch with dark blue
Seotoh linen floss. In every other dia
mond work one flower with leaves with
the blue floss. Finish off the edges
with a crocheted edging.
Another way is to fringe out the linen
sheet all round; make a knotted fringe.
Above the fringe make two rows of
drawn work, through which is run
light blue satin ribbon, large hows of
wider ribbon of the same color being
put at each corner. The coverlet part
ia then embroidered with sprays of ap
ple blossoms in pink linen flosses, with
dark olive leaves, outlined.
Tbe most elegant quilts are those of
llargarren art cloth, embroidered with
real Scotch rope linen, which comes ia
such exquisite shades. The Bargarran
art cloth now comes in colors as well as
white. In the white there are four dif
ferent weaves, which arc duplicated ia
the cream-white, and alsq in soma of
the colors. In the weave one of these
is tbe honeycomb design; the others are
modifications of the same weave. There
are shades of blue, old gold, green and
Most of the cloths, both the white and
colored, are fifty-two inches wide, ex

are seventy-two, iuches wide. It will

Shade In False Teeth.
la a fact that is pot generally
known that false teeth have to be made
to suit the complexion if satisfactory
results are desired. A dentist walking
oa the street one day called attention
to this fact as he passed a lady who ia
smiling showed a beautiful set of the
whitest of teeth. "Those teeth are too
white," he said. "She ia a blonde, aad
ptjght to have bluish-white teeth. A
brunette can wear clear white teeth,
but blondes should have" bluish or
areata tinted." Then he mentioned
that a friend of his had put in a set at
perfectly white teeth for a lady who ia
wtry fair. He did it against his own,
judgment and only after the lady in
sisted strongly on it- She wore the set
a few days and went back, saying the
teeth were too conspicuous. She took
a dark set the second time, aad they
couldn't be told. from natural one. .Ia
all. deatista bare as many aa thirty
different shades in false teeth, and have
to exercise much care in the selecttoa.
