LThe following poem was found on the high
way bv the editor of the Globe-Republican.
Being very a propot at this time, we publish it,
not because of its great literary excellence,
but that the author may find his lost MSS. and
The moon was shining in the sky;
Thanksgiving time was near,
When from our neighbor's farm arose
A frightful cry of fear.
I was the eldest of our flock.
We numbered just a score.
And well remembered what occurred
But one short year before.
When we were sleeping on the bough.
Rocked by the autumn breeze.
Each with his head beneath his wing.
Among the sheltering trees.
There came, as still as anything.
Two very cruel men;
One-half our number went that night
And never came again.
Fearing such fate might oome to us.
Early at break of day
I ran until I reached the wood.
And hid myself away.
When I returned, alas! I found
That all w ore gone but me.
And for a month I slept alone
Upon that same old tree.
One day I walked into the barn
To pass the time away;
The farmer closed the door and said,
"I think I'll let you stay.
"For should I seed you in the trees
I might not find you there;
A thanksgiving dinner without you
Would be a dull affair."
The CeuiBK Jubilee.
Monday, November 25th, will be a
great day for Dodge City and vicinity.
At the McCarty opera house the great P.
S. Gilmore, a pride of the nation and a
leader unparalleled, will marshal the
jubilee host for one of the most stupen
dous festival concerts ever undertaken
outside of Boston and New York. There
will be several great vocal artists which
Mr. Gilmore will bring, and the wonder
ful music of the band will be enriched
by the ringing of ten anvils and the
booming of four cannon, each of which
can be fired twenty times a minute by
electricity. This combined aggregation
of features, all singing, playing, ringing
and booming together, will cause the
most sublime effects the human ear has
ever listened to. The presence of Gil
more at the head of such an extensive
enterprise ensures grandeur and success
from first to last, and the house will be
filled with people from home and abroad
to drink in the pleasures of the mighty
feast. The jubilee party will arrive in
three or four special cars, one being a
special baggage and cannon car. The
arrival of the party in the city will be
heralded by a salute fired from the cannon
at the depot. The cannon will then be
taken to the house and placed in the va
cant space nearby and connected with
the stage by electric wires, to be fired by
touching a key on the stage, which par
ticular part of the work will be in charge
of a special musician. The electricians
will be protected in their work by a de
tail of police to keep away the boys and
curiosity-seekers, who will want to see
the things "go off," when the "go off"
time comes; they will be fired without
warning to the crowd outside, and it will
be a repetition of boom! boom! boom!
which will roll back to the auditorium
with the richest possible effect. It will
be a consummation of punctuated har
mony long to be remembered.

State of Kansas,
i Topeka, November 11, 1889
The president of the United States, by
proclamation, has recommended that
Thursday, the-28tb day of November be
set apart as a day of national thanksgiv
ing and prayer. The people of Kansas,
ever mindful of their dependence on
Divine Providence, have special cause
for grateful recognition of the many
blessings vouchsafed to them during the
closing year. Abundant harvests have
rewarded the toil of the husbandman.
Other industries as a rule have been like
wise favored. Peace, orderand content
ment have prevailed within, the borders
of the commonwealth. We have enjoy
ed immunity from pestilence, famine and
disaster, or disturbances of whatever
kind. Prosperity hath attended us in all
things which concern our happiness as a
state and people.
Now. therefore, I, Lyman U. Humph
rey, governor of the state of Kansas, in
accordance with the proclamation of the
president, do hereby designate Thursday,
the 28th day of November, as a day of
thanksgiving and prayer, and recom
mend that in the proper observance
thereof, we rest from our usual labors,
and in our usual places of worship, and
in our homes, let us render thanks and
praise to Almighty God for his infinite
goodness, imploring His continued guid
ance and favor unto our state and nation.
And let us prove our thankfulness on that
day by remembering and liberally pro
viding for the poor and less fortunate,
that they, too, may rejoice and give
thanks with us.
In witness whereof, I have hereunto
set my hand and caused to be affixed the
great seal of the state. Done at the city
of Topeka, this, the eleventh day of No
vember, in the year of Our Lord, one
thousand eight hundred and eighty-nine.
By the Governor,
Lyman U. Humphrey.
Secretary of State.

To W. J. E.
It is hardly successful, the attempt to
put me in the attitude of being already
warm under the collar and still growing
more excited, for sugar factory bonds,
when it fully appears that I dropped the
subject some weeks ago, and am waiting
for facts and developments. Nor is it a
success to use figures and estimates, as
does "W. J. E." the error of which is
apparent to well informed persons. For
instance sugar which brings from five to
seven and one-half cents he computes
at two and one-half. He makes no men
tion of the very important benefit to the
farmers and entire community by the
sale of even the 700 tons of cane. He
gives no credit for the large receipts
from the seed and refuse. He takes as
his illustration the most expensive and
most unfortunate mill, instead of the one
at Minneola costing less than half the
sum he names, and with a far better
shewing. He ignores the demonstrated
success of the works at Attica. Kansas,
and the happy results there. But I have
not time to further "do up" my good
friend "W. J. E." L. K. S.

The Habit of Saviag.
La Vegas Optic.
The number of people who have not at
sometime of their lives enjoyed au in
come in access of their immediate wants
is so inconsiderable that it is uot worth
while to make a computation. The mis
take with many is that they will not look
out for the future. Oue of the most
difficult of undertakings is that of teach
ing some people to live within their in
come, to save whenever possible. Good
fortune or ability may secure employ
ment for a young man that will bring
him in a sum much larger than his needs
require. Hi spirits are buoyant. He
sees no clouds in the future's skies. He
tells himself that having begun so well
he must do better as the years go on. So
he spends his money for extravagant
dres and in other channels. The habit
of extravagance, instead of the habit
of saving, is contracted. Some of the
young man's money is thrown awav in
the gratification of tastes that lower his
value to his employer. Iu time, either
through business depression or his own
inatteution, he is deprived of emlpov-
ment. If he is a fellow of grit, and is
capable of self-examination he sits in
judgment upon himself and condemns
his own foolishness. If he be a weak
brother he speedily becomes useless to
the world. His habits of extravagance
may lead him into forbidden paths.
The habit of saving taught by parents
has beeu the saving of many a young
man. Thrift without meanness is hon
orable aud honored all the world over.
The jouug man who saves is sure to be
come a valuable citizen. He is certain
to be a good father and husband. When
the rainy-da- time comes and age puts
its heavy hand upon him he need have
no fear. The young man who prefers a
good time is working against himself.
If he has a good time at the beginniug
he is likely to have a hard time at the
end. Youth is strong, and is capable of
self-denial. Age is weak, aud after it
has fought the battle of life it ought not
to be compelled to practice all the arts
STOCK AND FARM.
Three hundred head of cattle are be
ing loaded at Pierceville to-day that
were purchased recently by Geo. E.
Munger. Garden City Herald.
There are five hundred cars of pota
toes on the Central Brauch which .can-
not be moved at present on account of
the low price they bring. Oats at some
points is as low as ten cents per bushel,
and corn is worth ten t,o fifteen cents,
according to locality and grade Indus
trialist. John Overrocker and Charley Parker
who went to Colorado after cattle for
Bob Edgar, have just returned and re
port that while returning with about 900
head they were caught in the snow storm
and blizzard which prevailed last week
throughout Texa, New Mexico and Col
orado, the herd stampeded and every
hoof was lost. They are scattered
through Southeastern Colorado, the
range is good and unless the winter
should be very severe he will recover
most of them at the round-up next
spring. Clark Co. differ.
In answering the question whether
horses are better watered before than af
ter meals, a writer in the London Live
stock Journal stoutly declares that "it
is undoubtedly a serious mistake to water
horses soon after they have been fed. If
they cannot be watered before feeding,
then this should only be allowed after
the process of digestion has been com
pleted." Prairie Farmer.
Secretary Rusk regards as most en
couraging the efforts to stamp out
pleuro-pneumonia. It is claimed that
tbi3 disease is now effectually under con
trol and restricted to Kings and Queens
counties in New York State, to New
Jersey, and a limited section in each of
the states of Pennsylvania and Maryland.
A careful review of the field, together
with the arrangements made for the
supervision of the limited districts still
infected, justify, in the secretary's opin
ion, "the most sanguine hopes" in re
gard to the proximate complete eradica
tion of the disease. Prairie Farmer.
Every branch of industry is organiz
ing, even among the agricultural classes.
In Kansas the swine breeders meet at
Wichita, December 3d, to form a socie

poultrymen, at Wichita, next month;
the dairymen met last mouth, and the
wheat raisers more recently. Soon we
shall have associations of corn growers,
bay makers, egg fanciers, cabbage gar
deners, bean culturists, etc., etc. AU
this organization is to a good purpose,
however, and leads to better methods
and better results and some day will lead
to better prices, perhaps. State Journal.
