Next Friday our s"chool closes for a
two weeks vacation. Four months of
the school year have passed. The at
tendance has been good. The iuterest
on the part of both teachers and pupils
continually increases as by steady, pa
tient toil the work moves on. Thorough
ness and efficiency in every detail of the
work is the object at which we aim. Let
all, unitedly, strive to improve our
schools. Let us not be content with
what has already been accomplished. If
our schools are good let us try to make
them better. Public interest in educa
tion is indispensible. Encouragement
given to pupils and teachers is valuable,
even adverse criticism has its use. Any
thing is better than indifference and ap
athy. The board of education are doing what
they can to advance the interest in the
work. They are about to add supple
mentary reading books to our school li
brary. They are interested in the growth
and progress of our schools. Let the
public generally become interested and
then the fullest measure of success is as
sured. Literary exercises will be held in sev
eral of the rooms Friday afternoon.

short vacation during which time they
will greet their friends with a "Merry

The annual advertisement to the Press
(New York) will be found elsewhere in
our columns. We commend the Press
to the attention of our readers. The pa
per is but two years old, but it is so cheap
so bright, and so earnestly republican
that it already has a greater circulation
than any other republican daily paper in
America, having attained a national rep
utation and influence. Republican pat
ronage from all over the country is mak
ing the Press a great success, and an al
ready bright paper is being daily improv
ed. About the 15th of December the
Press daily edition will be enlarged to
DECEIVED THE TERY ELECT.
Tfce Roastlag Process of Making Sugar
aot What it is Represented.
It is with sincere regret that we are
compelled to inform our readers that we
have been deceived in regard to the suc
cess of making sugar by the Adamson or
Roasting process. The Republican has
in good faith advocated the placing of
mills in the various townships of South
west Kansas, and would be doing injus
tice to those who have by our advocacy
been misled if we did not now expose the
fraud as we announced what we believed
to be true.
This new.vwill uot only fall sadly upon
the people Ct our immediate vicinity, but
thousands who have been gratified at
what they believed was a grand success
will be greatly disappointed.
Elsewhere will be found the contents
of a circular, issued by those who have
been instrumental in securing bonds for
the erection of mills in this and adjoin
ing counties, which is fully explanatory.
For ourselves we can add that not un
til last Saturday evening did we have the
least suspicion of. any fraud whatever.
We had visited the mill at Minneola and
made a close examination of the process;
bad seen, felt and tasted, as have hun
dreds since, the "mush sugar" in the
molasses wagons, and believing the
(mis) representation made to us by the
officers of the oompany have taken a deep
interest in tbe'extension of an industry
which we believed would revolutionize
the manufacture of sugar.
Upwards of '$90,000 worth of bonds
had already been secured and many
more would have beeu in a few days,
when the-facts leaked out. As soon as
suspicion was created work was suspen
ded and an investigation promptly com
menced and pushed, resulting in the affi
davits and evidence which proved that
the suspicions were founded on facts.
Fortunately none of the bonds obtain
ed had yet been sold, and the parties
who have them in possession will see
that they are returned to the townships
Not only our own people will be dis
appointed in this turn of affairs, but
thousands who saw in this as they be
lieved a process that would revolutionize
the manufacture of sugar in the United
States, will now' withdraw support from
a further investigation of the business.
We would, however, inform those in
terested that this in no wise effects the
manufacture of sugar by the diffusion
process. This has gone before the peo
ple on its merits and won their approval.
While admitting, ns we are informed,
the expedient above referred to, the of
ficers of the company ask a suspension of
public judgment until they can have
time to demonstrate by infallible tests
that they can make sugar by the process
While this may be granted, the public
having been so shamefully imposed upon,
will be slow to place confidence in it.
The Republican places these brief facts
before the public, and asks those exchan
ges, who have so freely copied our ar
ticles commendatory of the enterprise,
now to publish this that their readers
may be undeceived.
THE COMPANY'S PROPOSITION.
Since the above was in type and just
before going to press, we are informed
by Mr. M. J. O'Meara, the treasurer,
that the company challenges investiga
tion, and will ask the State Board of Ag
riculture to select a suitable corps of
chemists and others to make due exami
nation, and will abide by their report.
We are not disposed to deal hastily or
harshly with these men and would wil
lingly give them ample opportunity to
make good their claims and amends for
what now appears to be a wrong perpe
trated upon a confiding public.
From the first glance to the end of a
critical examination it is appaieut that
no pains or expense have been spared to
make Hood's Sarsaparilla Calendar for
1890 the best and most popular ever got

head, with a tast3' crimson hood, is per
fectly lovely in ever- respect; the lith
ography in fourteen colors is wonder
fully fine; the pad is in clear, plain fig

printed in colors. Ask your druggist for
a copy or send six cents in stamps to C.

Characteristics of the Weather for
The severest storms of the month oc
curred along and off the Atlantic coast
from the south New England coast to
the Carolinas from the 14th to IGth and
on the 23rd and 24th, when gales of great
violence, attaining hurricane force at sea
from the 14th to 16th, were reported.
Over the north Atlantic ocean, in addi
tion to the disturbances of the 14th to
16th. 23d, and 24th. referred to. severe
gales were reported north aud northeast
of Bermuda on the 5th, and over mid
oeean on the 16th and 17th. Ou the 7lh
destructive gales prevailed over and near
the British Isles, and the barometer fell
to 28.70 over Scotland. From this date
until the 10th stormy weather prevailed
in that regioB, and on the 9th the barom
eter fell below 2S.S0 over the more
northern parts of Great Britain. The
Arctic ice reported near Newfoundland
and the Great Banks was largely in ex
cess of the average amount for the
The month was cooler than the aver
age October east of the Rocky moun
tains, except iu Dakota, Texas west of
the ninety-eighth meridian, and at sta
tions in New Brunswick and Nova Sco
tia. In the Rocky mountain and plateau
regions and on the Pacific coast the
mean temperature was above the aver
age for the month. The greatest depar
tures below the average temperature
were noted from the middle Atlantic and
North Carolina coasts northward over
the Lake region, where they exceeded
five degrees, and the most marked de
partures above the average temperature
occurred in the northern plateau region
and ou the notheasteru slope of the
Rocky mountains, where they exceeded
five degrees. The highest mean tem
perature reported was 84. 5. at Fort
Brown, Tex., and the lowest means were
28.8, at Dolly Varden Mines, Colo..
and 33 .2, at Atlantic, Mich. The high
est absolute temperature reported by
regular stations of the signal service was
106, at Yuma and Fort McDowell.
Ariz. The highest temperature reported
by a voluntary observer was US -. at
Indio, Cal. At stations on thesoutheast-
ern slope of the Rocky mountains, in
Montana, in the plateau legions, along
the north and middle Pacific coasts, and
at New Orleans, La., the maximum tem
perature was as high or higher than
previously reported for October. The
lowest absolute temperature reported by
a regular station of the signal service
was 9 . at Saint Vincent, Minn. The
lowest temperature reported by a volun
tary observer was 9 3 . at Pike's Peak,
Col.; at Dolly Varden Mines, Colo., and
Weatherford Center, Vt., a minimum
temperature of 0 (zero) was reported.
At Portland. Maiue. Fort Smith, Ark
Brownsville, Tex., Oswego, N. Y.. Lava,
N. Mex., and Fort McDowell, Ariz., the
minimum temperature was as low or
lower than previously reported for Octo
ber. Frost injurious to vegetation was
reported as far south as North Carolina,
South Carolina, and northern Mississippi
on the 8th, and in Tennessee and north
ern Alabama on the 31st. The occur
rence of killing frost was about one week
earlier than usual in North Carolina and
South Carolina ; about two week early
in northern Mississippi, while in Alabama
and Tennessee it was seasonable.
The most remarkable feature in con
nection with the precipitation of the
month was the heavy rainfall on the
middle and south Pacific coasts, which
was the heaviest ever reported in those
districts for October. The heaviest rain
fall for the month fell in north-central
California, where at Sims, Shasta Co.,
28.57 inches were reported, aud it ex
ceeded ten inches along the Oregon coast,
in north-central and northwestern Cali
fornia, and on the California,, coast be
tween the thirty-fourth and thirty-fifth
parallels. No rain was reported within
an area extending from north-central
Montana into the British Possessions,
within areas in the western part of north
ern Dakota, west-central and south-central
Minnesota, ceutral Texas, and ex
treme southern Louisiana aud Mississippi.
The rainfall was generally less than the
average amount for October in the cen
tral valleys, the Lake region, the south
Atlantic and Gulf states, over the north
eastern part of the northern slope of the
Rocky mountains, the northern part of
the northern plateau region, the extreme
eastern parts of the middle and southern
plateau regions, the extreme eastern
parts of the jniddle and southern plateau
regions, and in the British possessions
from the Gulf of Saint Lawrence to Van
couver Island. It was generally above
the average for the month in New Eng
land and the middle Atlantic states, the
middle and southern slopes of the Rocky
mountains, the plateau regions, and of
the Pacific coast. The greatest depar
tures below the avarage rainfall occur
red on the west Gulf coast, where they
exceeded five inches,, and the most
marked excesses on the middle and south
Pacific coasts, where, between the thirty
fourth and forty-first parallels, they were
more than six inches, and in the Sacre
mento Valley more than seven inches.

Navigation was interrupted or suspen
ded on the upper Mississippi and upper
Tennessee rivers ou account of low water,
and it was reported that low water in
the Erie and Welland canals, attributed
to continued easterly winds, rendered
the passage of boats through those canals
dangerous, if not impracticable, duringa
greater portion of the month. Damaging
drought was general throughout Ala
bama, Louisiana, Michigan, and Minne
sota, in east-central Texas, northern
South Carolina, northeastern Indian
and Illinois, northern Iowa, aud north
western Ohio and Wisconsin-.
