sown to wheat only 64 per ceat- qf lsst

13? per cent. This leaves a total decrease

Peiffce City's Trade.
Some three months ago there was an
endentanding among our grocery houses
thatshey woul 1 keep the prices on staple
articles, including sugar, up to a certain
figure. While this combine probably
made each one sharing in its benefits a
few dollars more, still it worked more
harm In Dodge City than is generally
thought by the parties interested in the
move. We had on s. veral occjMcns ex
postulated with the proprietors of cer
tain grocery houses, aud tried iu n reas
onable way to show them that they were
doin a positive injury to tne business of
the town in thus tr ins to keep the prices
op on these articles. Su ir was selling
15 pounds fur a M 00 when 20 pound
could be had for the bttuiu $1 00 iu every
little town around us, anj notwitbstand
ing our infonning them that the larger
portion if not almost the whole of the
east end of the ebuiity was trading at
Kinsley, that many people living in the
west end found that a dollar weut further
jn Cimarron than in Dodge City, tbat 1
Jetraorc wjs receiving regular customers
from the north part of the county for the
same cause, these high prices were still
kept upr until, by means unknown to us,
some of them wen brought to their
senses, and met the rut in prices made by
competing towni. To day, you can buy
most of the articles even cheaper in
Dodge than in Kinsley, Jetmore or Cim
arron, tut this trade once driven from
our doors is not so easily lcgaiocd, aud
there is no use in trjinj to. deny the fc(
tbaf Dodge City ba$ tieeq 4 heavy loser
and the above named towns the gainer
In this deal, and very large gainers too,
We had a big part of the trade of Wheat- i
land township, in which live souip o( the
most thrifty people iu our county. Some
have tried to account for this loss in one
way and some in another, but there is
simply one explanation and that is that
a man will trade where bis dollar trqg
There Is another thing that has cut
quite a figure in this loss of trade, and
tbat is this. Being a railroad division
there are thousand,, qf lluu paid out
here monthly; this money is' always sure
and is in no way effected by a, crop fail
ure, as in the case of the (aimer, and we
want to s&y right here tbat this railroad
trade ia undoubtedly the maiu prop to
the business of the town, but iiotwitb,-
atanding all it has Lteu the cause of pur
losing sight of nearly all the trade ex
cept " Ye bavc in fact been content
to sit right down wjtk the absolute as
sqrunce that this trade is of itself enough
to keep Dodge City from coing back
ward, and, like the government clerk
who receives a $tnt(,d salary and never
expects to, receive any more, never ex
pects to receive any les3, anj n well con
tented to plod ajc,n this path to tb,e eud
qf his days just like him, we havo been
well pleased tq stand, jqly by with this
sore trade At our back and see our neigh
bors torge ahead. It is the absolute
certainty of this trade that makes sq
many of our merchants JUtfe care
whether they galq any either trade or not-
We have the past twq weeks tnada spe
cial inquiries to find out how the busi
ness of this fall compares with that of
last year, and to our surprise we found
very few indeed who could report an
increase over last year's business, and
this too, when Ford, county has just
harvested the largest crop in its history
as a CHiqty
The question th it should be agitating
the minds of the business men of IJolgc.
City is, how can we regain lost tr vi:
and keep righ,t qn adding to it. A well
organised board of trade could undoubt
edly do much In this direction, but there
is still another aad far more effective
way of bringing about this mn,cU desired
result and that is through judicious ad
vertising. It is often said that advertis
ing does not pay, and unless dope in the
right way it don't pay. K a grocer mer
chant nqts an aq. in a weekly paper stat
ing tbat be carries a full line of groceries,
and that he is located on such a career,
and yon are inyited to call and see him
and never change th reading of bis ad,
he will b$ doing his business just as
much good by taking the money paid out
for aueb advertising and sticking it in
the stove. But on the otber hand he
places a good, bit) ad in a paper which
circulates among the trade he desires to
Seen re, he tella the people who have
been trading elsewhere that they can
now get more groceries for ft dollar in
Dodge than in Kiniey Cimarron, or Jet
more, which. s the truth, that Dodge
due i)w as it always has, pay more for
even thing the farmer has to sell than
any town within a radiqs of 73 miles;
that with three ot the largest dry goods,
clothing, ind boot and shoe establish
ments in the western part of the state,
with all other lines of merchandise equal
ly well represented; with sharp shrewd
business men at the head of these estab
lishments, who are able to buy at the
lowest figures, with such a vigorous com
petition among them that the small mar.
gin of profit is frequently in favor of the
buyer instead of the seller; with all these
ad antages of Dodge City as a trading
point for Ford and adjoining counties,
plainly set before the people, there can
be no question than Dodge City wonld
almost donble her present business.
When it is shown clearly to a man that
he can sell his produce for more and buy
whatever be needa for less in a certain
town yon may rest assured that that
town will be bis trading point, and it
ought to be. Just auca a place is Dodge
City, now tbat the combination oa gro
ceries has beea broken. But if Dodge
City has all these advantages, what good
are they going to do her unless she does
through some means let the outside
world know of them. There are prob
ably some three or four business firms in
the whole city who, in aa iadif er
t VW, have something to say to the
people through the columns of the fonr
newspapers which go fourth each week
from Dodge- while ia Cimarron, Jetmore
aad Kinsley aa examination of their pa
pen show that almost all the papers are
crowded with the advertisements of aae
ieess firms irto, ae eagerly inviting this
rade, who arc offering every Inducement
m their power to gala it, aad only, la a
measure we saceeaefal in securing it As
stated before, people will bay where they
can bay the cheapest, aad the fact that
they can buy cheapest in Dodge City
must be shown to them before we can
ever expect to regain .this trade, or add
to what we 'already here.
It has of tea beea said th.tt "when Old
Dodge goes after a. tsrfa she always gets
it;" aad. fa thosa days k was true; feat

The Ford County Sunday School
The Kansas State Sunday School Con
vention is a part of a world-wide svste-n,
whicn is both international and uurlenoui
iuatiocal. The international conven
tions ate composed of messengers from
me nations or the earth; on of wbkii
was held in London two years two, ltev.
J. A. Bright being the messenger from
Knusas. The national is touiposed of
messtugers from the various states and
territories; the state from the counties;
tne county from the townships and Sun
day schools. The object or ibis grti:
system is to see that Sunday schools are
organized and in untained in every neigh
borhood. For the purpose of organizing
roru county, ono (i tbese conventions
was held in Dodge City on Thursday and
Friday of last week, conducted by the
state ora'jmxer, J. F. Drake, assisted 1
Judge a- T. Casey of Lamed and Mrs.
Elvira II. Parker, Rev. V. U. Kuso act
ing as presidcut, Hy reports from the
nirakeugcre, it was ascertained tbat there
were seventeen schools in operation in
the county. The convention was fairly
well attended aud a great degree of en
thtiaidam maintained thrqughQut lis sessions-
Addresses were made by Brethren
Drake, Pasey, Cline, Ridenour, Weatfall,
Rose, 8h.ark,llu and Uusser; aUo by Sis

Sister Parser's address on "Temperance
iu the Sunday School" crpted consider
ab,e "lhu.Iam, the result of which was
the proyidiug tor monthly Union Gospel
Temperance meetings, beginning the first
Sunday night in December. The follow
ing persons were elected as ullqers of the
county society for tjiu ensuing year:
Mrs 4qnq Happ, picsident; Mr. C. F.
Mills, vice president; Mrs S. E. Straughn,
secretary; Mr. A F. Hallett, treasurer.
Between twelve aud thirteen dqllure s
raised for stqto and county work. Bro.
Drake certainly was a success as a ques
tion box interpreter, Judge Casey ren
dered, valuable assistance as leader of the
sinking. Rev. Bnsscr's address on "The
Lifting Power of the Sunday School" was
good and rounded up the convention in
gqoti order. The following resolutions
were read and adopted;
We, the undersigned committee on res
olutions, submit to the Ford County Sun
day School Convention, now in settlor,
Fr,st. We have been greatly edified
and encouraged in our Sunday school
work by the earnest, Christian inter
course and discussions during the conven
tion. Skcom). We are very glad to see the
mov that has been taken in organizing
Ford county for systematic Sunday school
effort, and we earnestly hope and pray
that these effort may result in more oar
neat devotion on the part of all the labor
ers iq this part ot the Master's vineyard.
And may the motto of each worker be,
"All our scholars for Christ."
Third. Each teacher should be im
pressed with the gret importance of the
work arid, should make such preparation,
by eucuest prayer and study, as shall
make them able to fasten in the minds of
their pupils the lesson, always striving to
mike Christ the center of all their affec
tions. FotniTB, We regret the deposition on
tbopatt ot so many young people to grad
uate from the Sunday school.
Fifth. As the Sunday echool is the
working field of the church, we feel tbat
every church member should take an ac
tive Interest in its success.
Sixth. Tbat wo recommend to the
Sabbath schools of the county that they
teach temperance and total abstinence
from all intoxicants; to abstain from the
use of tobacco and all narcotics. That
we recommend to the schools the teach
ing ot systematic, liberal giving.
Seventh. Our most sincere and hear

that end closed up, wfll they leave the

then, as we said before, the human
race must stop moving. The right way
for aliens to do is to keep dropping into
a good country ia small bodies, aa if
they were just comma; to find a home
not ia hundreds of thrmsanda annually,
as if they meant to take the good conn

old world oppression to do is to quit
driving out people from the lead of their

unseemly haste, that it is evident the
unfortunate victims are literally fleeing
for their lives.
In this money-making, money-loving
age the study of home comforts and
