RECALLED THE 1903 FLOOD.
Relative of W. A. Sexson of Kansas
City Here Saturday.
When D. G. Adkins of Kansas City,
51o., was in Goodland Saturday, and
went out to the home of his relative,
William A. Sexson, of Grant township,
It recalled an incident of four years
ago when our esteemed Sherman
county citizen was water bound in
Kansas City at the home of Mr. Ad
kins. Mr. Sexson had been back to
Illinois on a visit, and while on his
way home he arrived in Kansas City
about May 31, 1903, when that whole
country was being rapidly inundated
He tried to get a train home, but
the trains were all tied up on account
of washouts. He remembered that
Mr. Adkins lived over In Wyandotte,
and he thought to while away a day
or two with his relatives, while the
waters were subsiding. While a gues
at Mr. Adkins' home, he had an op
portunity to take in all the distress
ing and likewise unusual sight of a
mighty flood, and says he can never
forget his experience in high water.
Mr. Adkins is employed at present
in the construction of the eleganv
Thomas county court house at Colby,
and when that i3 completed he will
return to hl3 home in Kansas City.
Mr. and Mrs. M. T. Burwell enter
y tained at whist Tuesday evening. The
residence was elegantly illuminated,
and some of the illuminations were of
Japanese style, such as lanterns, etc.
The Japanese idea was exhibited also
in the prizes given to the successful
whist players. First prizes were won
by Mrs, E. C. Wiley and Mr. Walter
Smith, and the consolation prizes went
to Mrs. Charles Jett and Mr. G. P.
Lambert on. Refreshments were serv

Lewis E. Hall, Accidentally Met Death
at Hobart, Ckla May 21.
Albert D. Hall, living about six
miles northeast of Goodland. returned
Tuesday from Hobart, Okla., where
he was called by the death of a
younger brother, Lewi3 Elmer Hall,
a lad nearly 15 years of age. The
Hobart Republican has the following
about the accident:
A deplorable accident occurred at
the Hobart cotton compress about 1
o'clock Tuesday afternoon, just as the
plant was being oiled up for the aft
ernoon run. in which E. Hall, a boy
about 14 years of age, was instantr
killed, by having the life crushed out
of him by the big press,
"Young Hall was employed as as
sistant around the press and helped
in various ways In the big plant, and
one of his customary duties fp to
go under the press, Just before start
ing on a run and clean out the cot

during the preceding run.
"A. trap door is used to go down
under the press and when he return
ed from dinner Tuesday he was
cleaning out, while the machine was
being oiled and 'warmed up' for the
run. It is not known exactly how
the accident occurred, but evidently
he had been nearer than he thought
and was caught around the head and
shoulders and drew him in, crush
ing him to death in a doubled-up po
sition. "Dave Smith, who work3 at the
press, was the first to make the dis
covery, and immediately went down
and pulled the boy out, but life wa3

DEWEY FOR CONGRESS
Former Kansas Man Has a Political
Boom In Chicago.
Referring to Chauncey Dewey,
whose name became familiar to the
citizens of Kansas on account of the
Berry killing in Cheyenne county, in
1901. the Chicago Journal says:
"Chauncey Dewey, republican coun

The game for today was called off

makes a misdemeanor to play ball on
Decoration day. It Is probable that
the game could have been pulled off
allright with the Oberlin team, and
the local people would not have raised
a complaint, but Manager Dawson,
who has ever been a thorough gen
tleman in his dealings with the pub
lic, and his team, positively refused
to be a party to base ball played in
disregard to the law.
Saturday and Sunday the invincible
Midgets ot Topeka are the card at the
ball park against the Athletics. They
come with ail kinds of confidence, and
are prepared to fight hard to main
tain themselves as the semi-professional
champions of the state of Kan

expense to bring this team to Good-
land, but his aim is to give the Good-
land people the best article of ball
possible, even though it costs high.

RECEIPTS ARE LIGHT.
STie Stuff Held Off on Account of
Advise From Buyers.
Kansas City Stock Yard3, May 28.
Cattle receipts are much smaller than
usual this week, only 15.000 head in
two days, including 9.000 here today.
Shippers were advised last week to
hold cows and heifers off the market
this week, pending a settlement of the
controversy between salesmen and
packers relative to post mortem in
spection of she stuff, yesterday being
the date that the rule of the packers
not to buy except subject to this In
spection went into effect, and only a
small number of cows and heifers
have been sent in. Salesmen have re
fused to sell she stuff to packers on
the terms of this rule, and this has
forced packer buyers to substitute
light weight steers for she stuff, prices
on which are a quarter higher than
last week. On the other hand, buyers
for small butchers and independent
slaughterers both here and In east
ern cities have taken all the cows of
fered at steady to firm prices, some
sales today being called stronger. Me
dium and heavy weight Eteers are
also stronger this week, so that the
first two daj-s of the difficulty regard
ing the Inspection have passed with
sellers holding the whip hand, thanks
to conservative marketing. Beef
steers sold at 5 6.00 today, bulk ot
steers at 53 00 to $5. 75. yearlings up
to J3.70, heifers 54.00 to Sa.30, cows
53.25 to 54.75, canners 52. 2o to 53.2a,
bull3 53.40 to 54.65. calves quarter
higher than last week, at 54.00 to
56.00, stockers 53.25 to 54.75, feeders
54.25 to 55 00.
The hog market broke badly last
half of last week, and the net loss
for the week was 21 cents per hun
dred. Heavy supplies ruled all week,
but the run is somewhat smaller this
week, only 18.000 here today, and the
market Is showing a slight recovery
from the lowest figures reached Sat
urday, top today 56.15, bulk of sales
56.00 to 56.12. Heavy hogs sell
closer to lights than a week ago, and
medium weights are only 2M cents
below weights under two hundred
pounds. May hog receipts at this
point will aggregate 365.000 head,
against 301,000 In May last year, re-j
ceipts this year In May heaviest for
that month since 1901.
Supplies of sheep and lamb3 are
moderate, and market 10 to 20 cents
above a week ago, strong both yester
day and today, supply 7,700 today.
Clipped lambs bring 57.40 to 57.65 to
day, a few wooled lambs yesterday at
58.60. clipped native ewes 56.00, year

Between United States and Sweden.
The Hill City Republican prints a
story by Judge C. W. Smith that is
pat at this time of a little too much
dry weather, and the old Swedish
woman made a clear distinction be
tween wet and dry. The story says:
"Judge Smith the other day told a
good story that happened In his court
some years ago when pops and hot
winds were common in western Kan
sas. A Swede woman was before him
in one of the western counties of his
district, asking for naturalization pa
pers. A3 13 his custom, the judge
plied the woman with a few ques
tions. Said the judge: "We have
quite a -different government here

some of the difference you have no

judge smiled and made the rejoinder
that only a part of the people believ

part of the government.

BROKE IHS LEG.
J. B. Moore of La Blanche Suffers
Serious Injury Saturday.
J. B. Moore, living seventeen miles
southwest of Goodland, met with a
serious accident, resulting in a broken
leg, last Saturday. He had purchas
ed a thoroughbred Durham bull at
the sale at Bradley's stock pens. Th
animal was loaded in a farm wagon
and himself and son, Emory, a young
man 17 years of age. were riding In
the spring seat. .
The team was a young pair of
horses, one of them a three-year-old
filley. The bull turned a summer-
salt and threw Mr. Moore over the
dashboard and behind the horses. In
rear of the young filley. The young
man was pinned down in the front
end of the wagon. The team was
startled, and began to strike a rapid
stride at the troL Mr. Moore trotted
along In the traces with the filley with
hl3 hands on the animal's hips. He
saw his predicament and tried to ex
tricate himself. He gave a jump, but
his feet caught the traces, and he
was thrown to the ground, his feet
entangled In the lines. The wagon
wheel ran over his left leg. breaking
the shin bone half way between the
ankle and the knee joint. Technically,
