Whole Ant Hills of Wheat.
Seeing John Morgan, of Buffalo Park,
on the street Monday reminded us of a
promise which we made him some weeks
ago, and had not yet redeemed.
The promise was entirely voluntary on
our part, and came about in this way:
A few weeks ago a brother of John's
David, we believe came out from the
Indiana tall timber, wheie he had grown
up, to visit John and see western Kansas.
John, of course, brought his brother into
the World office on coming to tho cih
again. David is just about as wakeful
a talker as John. John proceeded to tell
a good story at his expense, and David,
with some reluctance, helped him out be
tween almost deafening roars of laughter
by tho crowd which was present. It was
this story which we then declared our
intention to give to our readers:
John, in his florid style, began by saying:
"My brother, nearly the first thing
after we met for the first time in western
Kansas, began to tell mo about seeing
bunches of threshed wheat piled up evory
little piece along the U. P. railway track
for many miles on the plains to the cast
of Buffalo Park. I could not tsll what he
was driving at, but I told him it must be
that people had hauled the grain, and
placed it in that position, in order to have
it handy to the cars. Nothing more was
said about it, and I had almost forgotten
the circumstance, when, one day, as my
brother and myself were riding in the
buggy down by tho Saline, he attracted
my attention by exclaiming, 'There is one
of those piles of wheat.' I could hardly
hold myself. It was one of our gravel
piles thrown up by ants!" Immense
roaring by tho crowd! ,
Here David put in his explanation:
"I didn't Imow John was going to tell
this. I was not to blame. I was in com
pany with a man who claimed to have
traveled all over the West, and he told
me that those mounds along the railroad
track were piles of wheat." Crowning
fit of laughter.
There was no saloon handy, and David
saved a general treat. However, he
has brought his family west, and they
are residents of Buffalo Park.
Saline river was unfordable sev
eral times during the latter part of last
week. Captafn Fonts ascertained experi
mentally that this was so last Saturday
night. He had been at Logan to get his
eon, who had been attending school there,
and Mrs. Captain Fouts, who had been to
Nebraska on a visit. Well along in the
night they reached the north bank of the
Saline, within aboiit a hundred yards of
their residence, but the house is on this
side of the stream. They had to go into
camp until the next day, when the stream
had fallen enough to permit them to cross.
More public improvements have
been make this week in tho shape of east-and-west
ditching on the south side of
Warren avenue, between Washington and
Franklin streets, the elevation of the
stone walk between Osborn & Monroe's
and the TJ. S. land office, the piling of
dirt along the roadway in the draw just
east of the Oakes House, and so on.
The champion bold frauct seems to
be Frank Eaton, Mendota, Kan. He
writes to us on a postal card, 'Tlease
send me the Woblt for three months."
He is ahead of the follows who remember
us with almost daily regularity with
postal cards, bearing the request, "Please
cond me a copy of your paper."

Judge Conger has a new buggy.
Monday aiid Tuesday were cold.
That is the way to express it
Eev. Mr. Weller, of Buffalo Park,
was in town on Monday and Tuesday.
An interesting article from the pen
of J. Cantrel B. is crowded but until next
Mr.JLipe has been sick the most of
the week. He was in his shop again
Mr. Guy Blair, a brother of A. H's,
is now in the ofSce with. him. Guy is
from Solomon City.
John A. Nelson has a new land-omco
sign a la the Warren, Keeney & Co. land
sign of by-gone days.
The young man -who painted the
fancy signs on so many- Wa-Keeney
windows last week went west.
Mrs. Benedict has had her house
weatherboarded, and a kitchen attached
to the rear of the main building.
There i3 now an established road
from here to Wa-Keeney, to the land

Mr. Middleby informs us that his
bull whose leg was broken was not fight

bulls simply pounced on him and did the.
Mr. and Mrs. Conger, from east of
the Mississippi, who had been visiting at
Dr. Conger's for about a week, started
home Wednesday morning. Mr. Conger
is a brother of the doctor's.
Joseph Escher has been confined to
his residence several weeks by sickness.
We do not understand that hi3 condition
is dangerous. He has a man employed
to work in his harness shop.
Wo learn that Commander Caddick
has decided that the meetings of the
Captain Trego Post will be on the first
and third Tuesday evenings of each
month, instead of Saturday evenings.
D. H. Henkel asked us on the street,
Tuesday morning, "Do I look like a
young widower?" By that sign we ascer
tained that Mrs. Henkel had just started
on a visit to the state of old Virginia.
W. E. Phillips, general agent of tho
Kansas Mutual Life association, was in
town in tho earlier days of tho week. He
reports that new policy holders are
recruited with convenience and dispatch.
Geo. Galloway has built himself a
blacksmith shop a short distance west of
the opera house. This shop will be run
under George's own superintendency.
He has a man named Metz employed as
Dr. Jones now has his office in the
Scott drug store both day and night.
The remembr;u(co of this will prevent
people as ho desire his services from
prowling around his residence in tho
night to find him. where he does not stay.
Awning business is decidedly boomy.
This week the sidewalk has been covered
in fiont of Hille's ''land office," Vorbcck's
new stone building and tho wooden house
where Tosh keeps the jewelry store.
This is a big connective stretch of awning
to be built within bne week.
John Pounquist reports a good time
at Mapes's Grove on Friday of last week.
It had not rained much down there the
night before, and quite a crowd was
present Ice cream was manufactured
on the ground. All got enough
to eat, and went homo well pleased with
what they had seen.
M. F. Fuson, the conductor of the
mail line between this place and Ness
City, assured us Wednesday morning that
from twelve miles south of Wa-Keeney
to within seven miles of Ness City, no
rain had fallen along his route for weeks,
and that the ground was getting very
dry. Despite this fact, Mr. Fuson reports
corn looking well in the dry district, and
he says that wheat will yield in the
neighborhood of one-third of a crop.
Our old radical Eepublican neighbor,
now of the Santa Fe, N. M. Leader, an
nounces himself in favor of reform with
a big K. Cleveland is not rapid enough
for him, it would seem. -Even the Dem
ocrats ought to, have known that Cleve
land is built too much on the ponderous
lozy style to bo fast with either his body
or mind. But Stultz's big E reform item
reminds us that "Jim" Millard took a
sort of richochet tumble over the country
as far as Kirwin the first half of this
we.k. In other words, he was on a
pleaturj roll, with a big P and E.
Tho probababiliiy is that before the
Would is issued again Baker & Shultz
will be in their xiew office. They will
occupy the southwest corner room on the
first floor of Mr. J. H. Baker's new build
ing, and have a consultation room just
back of their office. The north and east
first-floor rooms of the building will be
occupied by a bakery and restaurant, and
the upper story will be the residence of
Mr. Baker's family. Mr. Baker has
erected a good building, which is an or
nament to the city, and we believe it will
boa profitable investment to him.
Last week Dr. aucb Mrs. Jones and
Mr. and Mrs. T. E. Moore took a
trip to Colorado. Saturday niglit they
reached Denver, and pnfc up at the
Alvord House. They were just in from
Manitou, and were tired. Mr. Moore, on
retiring, placed his pantaloons on a chair
near the foot of his bed. He was entirely
unconscious of when the thief made the
raid, .but he missed very plainlv in the
morning the $S3.00 which hjid been
stolen. The hotel jnanagemenTare cen
surable for not having a decent lock on
the door of the room which Mr. Moore
occupied. Mrs. Jones look a B. & M.
train at Denver, on her way to Iowa, to
take a visit. The jest of the partv.came
east, Mrs. Moore stopping at Grinnelljor
a few days to visit friend and .relatives.

A Good Dish for a Two-Year Baby.
2arion Ilarland, in Babyhood.
When properly made, milk toast is a
most satisfactory supper for babie3 over
two years old. Pare away the crust from
slices of stale, light, sweet bread, and with
a cake-cutter or sharp edged tumbler cut
each of these into a round, cooky-shaped
(They taste better to baby and to
bigger children in this form than in the
rectangular slice. I know one baby,
twenty years of age, who when appotito
flags begs for "t-ound cream-toast, such,
as mamma used to make for us when we
were wee bits of things.";
Spread the rounds on a platter; set
them on the oven a few minutes until
they begin to roughen all over. Then
toast them quickly over a clear fire, and
scrape off every burnt crumb to bring
the surface to a uniform shade of yellow
brown. Dip each piece, as it is taken
from the toaster, for a hasty second into
boiling water (salted), butter lightly, and
pile them in a bowl. Cover out of sight
with scalding .milk, also salted, fit ona
close top to tho bowl, and set in a pan of
boiling water in a pretty brisk oven for
fifteen or twenty minutes. The process
will yield a dish so unliko the insipid
stuff accepted and eaten under tho name
of "dip," or "milk," or "soft toast" as to
justify the beholders and eater in the ex
penditure of thought and pains required
for its production. Babies soon discrimi
nate between "messes" and dainty, deli
cate food, none tho less delicious because
the ingredients are simple and inexpensive.
If you can instead of scalding milk use
half cream, half milk, the toast is still
more nutritious and palatable.
A Practical Joke at Obcrlin.
McCook Kcb) Tribune.
A very neat (and withal practical) joke
was perpetrated by Inspector Lee, of the
United States interior department, upon
the land attorneys at Oberlin, Kan , re
cently. The inspector assumed the role
of a land seeker, and visited each land
man in the town, inquiring concerning
tho timber claim relinquishments in their
possession. Every man took tho bait in
a surprisingly voracious manner and
gave Lee the information desired, where-'
upon the inspector went to the local
United States land office at Oberlin, and
instead of making application for the
numerous and sundry timber claims, had
them all cancelled. Oberlin land men
are very cute not men that can't learn
and profit and we imagine that the
person that catches them napping again
will be smooth, very.
Every family should have a bottle of
Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diar-
riicoa'i.Tsmeay ror use aunng me summer.
Its prompt use has saved untold suffering-,
many lives and many doctor bills. It
is the acknowledged standard, and can
be depended upon, besides it is pleasant
to take. It is put up in 25 cent, 50 cent
and one dollar bottles. .
In writing of that country, Mr. O. S.
McClain, a prominent real estate dealer,
301 Fifteenth street, Denver, Colorado,
says : " I removed here from Iowa in 1374.
As a healthy country, Colorado has proved
to be equal to my .most sanguine expec
tations. The air is clear, pure and light,
The water here in Denver is obtained
from artesian wells, GOO feet deep, which
are numerous in the city, and free from
alkali, mineral taint and vegetable matter;
but in many places the water is impreg
nated with alkali, and persons not ac
customed to it are almost certain to be
taken with cramping pains in the stomach,
diarrcea or bowel complaint of some form;
and right here I wish to give my friends
and the public a bit of advice, which is
based on eleven years' experience. Cham
berlain's Colic, Cholera, and Diarcea
Bemedy is a certain cure for alkali
poisoning, cramping pains and diarhoea.
It's a remedy I would not do without for
any consideration, and I have heard
many such expressions from persons who
have tned it.
