We've Cut Out the Patents.
i'.s was suggested in theso columns a
few weeks ago, wo this week issue only
the home print pages of the Hekald
and will continue to send out the paper
in that form in future.
Wo make the change purely for rea
sons which we deem will, in the end,
placo us In shape to give our readers a
butler paper. Wo havo had to pay
more for the four patent inside pages
than they were worth and wo feel that
we can expend that sum to a better ad
vantage in otherwise improving the
appearance and value of tho all home
We want to know how our readers
like the Hkralii in its' new form and
would bo glad to hear from them from
time to time as to how they and their
neighbors like the omission of tho pat
ent pages. Wo want to build up tho
paper and mako it bigger and better
all tho time and we believe wo can best
do this by making it all home print. If
however, our readers prefer tho form
er style and size, after a fair test of the
new form, we'll return to the "pat
outs. " Lot us have youroplnion. The

In times past, the Herald has sacri
ficed Its news columns, in a few in
stances, to shield certain persons or
enterprises from severe criticism, mere
ly because they camo to us with tho
idea of their family .namo, an aged
mothor or other sacred ties but In fu
ture, we want to say to one and all, the
Herald Intends to "hew to tho line,
let tho chips fall where they will" and
if anybody commits a lawless act, be
they of high or low estate, they may
expect to see tho FACTS published in
the Herald. If there is any shielding
of "family honor" thoy must look to
that themselves boforo they commit
tho misdeeds which will bring them
prominently leforo tho public perhaps
in a compromising light.
It is our duty as a newspaper to print
the news, all the n iws, all tho time and
in tho future it will come In tho ven

, Held for Stealing.
Alfred Ault and Jessi Leo wcro ar
rested last week in Colorado on a war
rant sworn out by Bob Kidenour,
charging them with stealing a horse
from his pasture on tho night of April
Wo havo heard several reports in re
gard to tho raso but have not published
anything before. It seems that tho
horse disappeared on or about tho time
that Ault was to lcavo for his farm in
Colorado. Kidenour seemed to think
that he know who got Ills horse and at
once began a still hunt, his first move
was to go to Beaver City mid notify
the olllcurs of his loss and to seok tiicir
advice. He also went to Liberal, Kan
sas , where ho Inarned that two men
that answered the description of Ault
and Loe had mot there and that they
had a horse that answered tho descrip
tion of his miEsing animal, ho again re
turned to Beaver City, where ho got
nut a warrant for tho arrest of Ault and
Leo. Tho papers were then sent to tho
ofllcers in Colorado and when tho boys
got to thoir ranch tho sheriff of that
county proceeded to nab thorn and to
notify Sheriff Teckham that he had
mado the arrests. v
Teckham went to1 Lamar, Colo , to
bring back tho prisoners and Itldcuour
accompanied him to return with his
It seems thut the horse was raised
by O. W. Ault, father of Alfred, who
used to reside on his farm a few miles
northwest of here. Mr. Ault gave tho
colt to his sun and then later he gave
It to his daughter, Maggie, who is now
Mrs. Ben Jett,"but Alfred always claim
ed tho horse. Tho horse was in tho
possession of Ben Jctt for sovoral
months and ho sold it to Bobcrt KIdo

.Homestead Bill Passed By
House Will Become Law.
Washington, May 4 Tho conferees
on the threo-year homestnd bill have
reached a tentative agreement.
Their report will indorse tho bill as
it passed the house, providing for a re
duction of the timo to completo a
homestead entry from llvo to three
yean, permitting an entrymon to bo
absent for not more than flvo months
in each year after establishing resi
dence, and allowing In caso of sickness
or climatic reasons twelve months from
tho date of filing in which to commence
Tho amendments agreed upon by the
conference committee require cultiva
tion on each homestead entry of ono-slx-tecnth
of the area the second yoar of
residence, and one-eighth the third
year. Tills cultivation requirement
will also apply to enlarged homesteads,
thereby reducing thu area required by
tho present law one half on homesteads
of this class.
The secretary of tho interior, upon a
showing of good faith by the entry man,
may further reduco the area required
for cultivation in Individual cases. The
conferees' meeting was attended by the
secretary of the interior and the bill as
agreed upon by the committee is ex
pected to have tho support of the in
terior department and bo approved by
