Satubday, August 29, I885t Ffir District Jiige, I.. TL. PRATT, OF KOBTON COUNTY. Ex-Governob Glick's steno graphic reporter has been appointed the same kind of a reporter for Judge Clark A. Smith's court, over northeast of this. The Smith Center Bulletin calls him a very cleaver and pleasant little gentle man. We can find no precedent for the use of cleaver as an adjective, but the Bulletin means, of course, that he is a butcher's-axe sort of an individual. The Wa-Keeney Wobld is a free lance. Moreover, it is keen as progress. Noting the Stockton News' announcement that Prof. Leach -will "take charge of the principle department of public schools," it regrets the absence of such departments in the schools of America. Norton Cham pion. We appreciate, to some extent, at least, the high compliment involved in the -words above, To fetand weU in the estimation of critics, one of which friend Conway certainly is, is to us aboon more to be coveted than the possession of great riches or high official position. At the recent school election in Stockton, an animated fight was waged between two factions. One faction favor ed the retention of Prof. Leach as princi pal of the schools, and the other opposed this step. The anti-Leach side won. From what we have seen and heard or Mr. Leach, we are satisfied that he is a splendid teacher and a man of excellent senbe. Wo are sorry that such men are put down so often. However, they gener ally rise again, and make their own way. Mr. Leach is one of the editors of the Stockton News, and, by giving his time to journalism, he certainly can win. Concerning Candidates. Up to this date, five men have an nounced themselves in the World as candidates for county offices this fall. Of Mr. A. B. Baker, who announced last week as a candidate for treasurer, we are able to say that he is qualified beyond question for the position. In his home neighborhood, in what may be termed south-central Collyer township, Mr. Ba ker will receive a handsome endorsement, and there is no doubt that this good feel ing toward him will spread into other portions of the county. Mr. C. W. Sweet, candidate for county clerk, is an old resident of the county. As far as we are informed, ho has the confidence of those who ate acquainted with him. During the late war, he was a brave defender of the nation's honor, and this certainly should be a considera tion greatly to bis credit in his candidacy for the important office to which he as pires. W. S. Kyle, candidate for. register of deeds, we all know. He is among the few oldest residents of the county. Nobody can consistently question his qualifications for filling acceptably the office which he is after. He was a gallant member of as good a regiment as Illinois sent into the late war Col. Farneworth's 8th cavalry. Captain J. Word Carson is another boy who wore the blue when this color meant war against armed enemies. In the mat ter of qualification for the office of regis ter of deeds, we are pleased to believe that hiB superior does not live in Trego coun ty. He has lived here a number of years, and is contemplating the building of a cozy residence on his lots in block 33. No one will question Dr. Conger's abil ity to fill fairly and fully the office of pro bate judge. In fact, he has been tried and found not wanting. He is an old settler, whose thrift is attested by the ex tent of his private interests, and the as sistance which he extends to those of a iblio character. POLICE COURT. The Beems Pulled by the Whole sale. On Tuesday a warrant was issued for the arrest of John L. Beem for keeping his billiard hall open after 12 o'clock at night, in violation of a city ordinance. Marshal Frick served the warrant The accused was found guilty in the police court, and Judge Groft fined him $25 and the costs. The costs amounted-to $20. On the same day warrants were issued for the arrest of George Beem, John L. Beem, Wm. Beem and Lee Beem, on the charge of gambling. They were arrested by the marshal, and taken into the police court. The case as to Lee Beem was dis missed for want' of evidence. Each of the other three was found guilty as charg ed, and fined 25. The costs in each of these cases amounted to 10, except that of Lee Beem's. A roan by the name of Georgo Brown, who had been boarding for some time at the hotel kept by the Beems, was the complaining witness. John A. 'Nelson and Lee Monroe con ducted the prosecution, and S. R. Hogin handled the defense. Up to the time of our last conference,9 yesterday, with the police judge, the Beems had not skirmished around suffi ciently to procure bonds on which to take an appeal to the district court The sentiment here is decidedly op posed to these fellows carrying on their gambling business any longer. The city government has acted wisely in legisla ting for the suppression of a common nuisance. Hearty fellows who will not work on their own volition ought to be given. Em ployment nt oino kind of public work. " I - mm" -....., . j? : ttttt i..-c .-: Canvas-top -wagons are thick. D. H. Henkel has Jbeen on a trip to Nebraska this week. S. J. Osborn has been in Ness county the most of the week, on law business. The work on the addition to Dr. Jones's past-office building is well under headway. Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday were cool enough to call for stoves and overcoats. That roomy addition to the rear ot Kritchfield's furniture store has been put up this week. ,. Sam Smith was in town last Monday. He claimed to be just getting home from a trip to Chicago. . - Many of the immigrants who are seen here these days are headed for St John and other western counties. Geo. L Verbeck, after hesitating some what protractedly, has consented to act as school director. We are gladlof this. . . ' J. M. Ostrander, the leading sheep man of Trego county, was in town Thurs day with Charley Weeks. Stockton Rec ord, 21. x Lawyer Lee Monroe was up at Ken neth yesterday, as counsel in a case in volving the validity of settlement on school land. Mr.- Dick, railway auditor, and' Mr. Montague, express auditor, were checking up the books at the railway depo the first few days of the week. Mr. Guy Blair, who had been visiting his brother, A. H., at this place, has re turned to Lawrence to resume his studies at the state university. Wm. Stark and family started, Thurs day morning, from Ogallah township to Ottawa county, in this state, where they will make their future homo. D. M. Logan, the blacksmith at Ogal lah, left that place, Thursday morning, headed east. He went in a buggy, and wanted to find a new location. David Hille has been selected by Postmaster Ufford as his deputy. He takes hold of the work rather familiarly, and we have no doubt that he will make a capable and honest assistant . Mr. J. E. Williams, from Valley Cen ter, Sedgwick county, was back in Trego county last week. He said that he had sold his store at that place, and thought rather strongly of coming here again to live. Bruce Sanders, of Grinnell, was ta king in the town Monday. From the ap pearance of the pile of business which he had before the government land office, he didn't have much time for sporting, though. W. S. K. is authority for the state ment that a tenderfoot remarked at the table of the Commercial House yesterday that he was going out where he could take a timber claim; he did not like it around here, on the naked prairie. Mr. J. Van Zoeren, from the south part of Sheridan county, gave us a much appreciated call one day last week. Mr. Van Zoeren is an old stand-by up there, and, in common with old settlers in gen eral, he is getting along nicely. Henry Ewalt, alias the great western Democratic oracle, went east by Firday morning's train. Our reporter could not ascertain definitely whither he would drift. He perhaps will stop in Illinois, instead of going through to the White House. Mrs. N. H: Sawtelle arrived in Wa Keeney by Tuesday morning's train. She reports having had a grand time summer ing in Denver and the mountains, but declares that the high mountain districts are not calculated to add to the weight of the visitors. Mr. J. B. Ennis, from Iowa, called at this office one day last week. He expects to start a newspaper and open a mercan tile establishment at Monument, out in St John county, within two or three weeks. His paper, he thought when here, he would call the Pioneer. Lawyer Osborn, of Wa-Keeney, and Fierce, Walnut City, have been at Scoha rie since Monday, taking depositions in the Knotts vs. Stidger, Bedd and Long case, which is to be. tried at the Septem ber term of the district court in Beno county. Ncss City Time, Thursday, There-is a striking similarity of names in different neighborhoods. Now we read that Morgan shot at Dan at Lamed a few nights ago. Dan is a darkey, and Morgan a saloon rowdy. Morgan forbade Dan entering tha saloon, but Dan did not obey; 'hence the shooting. Dan was hurt badly, and Morgan was arrested by the sheriff. A man by the namd of Eden has bought the Wa-Keeney hotel. That hos tlery ought to be something like Paradise. Stockton Record. The Wa-Keeney ho tel! Why, dear sir, there are three big, reputable hotels in Wa-Keeney. No other city in this judicial district is fairly comparable with Wa-Keeney in the mag nificence of her hotel accommodations. The name of the hotel which a man by the name of Eden purchased is the Oakes House, a stone structure a full hundred feet long, averaging over fifty feet wide, and reaching well toward the stars. We expect to find your statement, that it ought to be something like Paradise, ver ified as soon as Mr. Eden gets to adver tiwng. Eh? 3? '? T Ex-Postmaster J. W. Mfflard,;wife I and children started, Thursday morning, to Decatur, BL, where they will spend some thru in visiting. From there they will go to other parts of that state on the same mission. After finishing the visit ing, Mr. Millard will locate somewhere in the southeastern part of Kansas, and act as traveling salesman for a wholesale house. The WoiffiD sincerely wishes Mr. Millard and his family, not merely a. happy visiting season in Illinois, but peace and prosperity ever after. m We were pleased to receivewa call, Friday morning, from Mr. H. D. Chase, who, with his family, has moved to his broad acres close to Collyer. Mr. Chase is a brother-in-law of our friend, Mr.W. H. Burnham, of" Collyer township. He has been the superintendent of construc tion of the custom house 'in Kansas City. After seeing the building about comple ted, he has resigned that important posir tion. Mr. Chase is a gentleman of pleas ing address, and we are glad to welcome him as a citizen of our splendid county. . The advertisement of Jones & Ferris, druggists, looms up for your vision this week. They begin properly. They-appreciate thef fact that the business firm who have an advertisement planted have at least one beacon light which "speaks for them while other agencies are lifeless. In addition to the advertisement, this of fice has turned out a large lot of job work for this firm this week, consisting of fet ter heads, bill heads, etc. Jones & Ferris will move their drug store into the old poct-office building on or about Septem ber!. Mr. T. B. Moore is no longer station agent at this place. All unexpectedly, he was relieved of Eis official duties about a week ago. His place is filled by Geo. S. Payne, who for some time had been the station agent at Bunker Hill, Kussell county. We have no acquaintance with Mr. Payne, and certainly speak of him with entire respect; but we claim to echo the general voice of this community when we assert that he will find it difficult work to fill Mr. Moore's place fully. As far as we are concerned, Mr. Moore .had endeared himself to us by his uniform kindness when on and off duty. We are glad to know that he will remain in charge of the Commercial House, and that he also has employment in the U. S. land office. Messrs. Patterson and Lewis, we are pleased to see, still hold their positions at the depo. Mr. C. M. Paull, on Wednesday, left at this office a real trophy of the greatness of western Kansas. It consisted of three stalks of corn which averaged about ten feet in length above the ground. On each of two of the stalks were two large, well- developed ears; on the other stalk there was one large ear. These stalks and their accompaniments would 'do creditHo any portion of the corn-growing West nn- der ordinary circumstances, but these did not grow under ordinary circum stances. When that "one hail of a time" of which we told in the World of June 20 swept over this immediate region of country, the merciless hail stones beat Mr. Paull's corn crop, in common with the crops of various other men, into the ground. That storm occurred in the af ternoon of June 16. Therefore, Mr. Paull's corn crop, up to last Wednesday, had been seventy-one days in reaching its then condition. But the fact is that it was a pretty good crop a crop pretty well made, we mean sixty days after it was beaten into the ground. Mr. Paull lives just outside the northeast limits of Wa-Keeney city.

It is said that scarcity of water is one chief cause of tough beef. Animals fat tened in summer on succulent food are more tender than those of the same age and character fattened in winter. It is sometimes difficult to save seed corn. Begin to select particular stalks now, in order to observe it during growth. Corn is a good conductor of heat. It cets cold at night and remains cold after the air has become warm, condensing enough moisture for the cold of the succeeding night to injure its vitality, and hence in saving seed corn gather it early, select carefully, dry thoroughly and keep it dry and warm. You fellow that don't come in and settle by the lOfch of September. better look out, for Charles Benedict will be after you, "sure." TIME TABLE. Arrival and Departure of Railroad Trains. GOING WEST.
