The proof of each blank is sub mitted to the scrutiny of Register Hanna, who, besides being old in the Land Service of the Government, is a practical printer. These blanks, to be brief, ure warranted to be perfect in wording, printing, quality of paper and-all other essentials. Big reductions made on lots of 500 or more. The blanks here named will be added to constantly until we can supply every blank needed at the land office, whose printing by us is justifiable on business grounds. We mean precisely what we say, and wish every atom of Saxon in this statement to have its full weight: We are not to be bucked off the track by foreign opposition. We buy our printing paper in Kan- eas. ana, as a ruic senci for nothing outside of the state which can be had within it. When we know we are getting an article reasonably, we don't haggle about pi ices either. We aim to assert, in letters of Hi ing light Jo be observed especially by land 'attorneys in this land district, that if any foreign agency offers bargains. you can, upon authenticating properly its offer, have it duplicated right in this office! Don't send away for what vou can buy reasonably at home. That is not the way to build up a country! If land agents will not work for the region of country in whose lands they deal, who can be expected to do so? Cash must accompany all orders. Yours regularly, W. S. TILTON, ProprietorWESTERsr Kansas World. LOST. A white Indian pony, with ears split, and sore back from saddle; two front shoes on; halter and two feet of rope attached.

Coal season opened. Old friends returning. The sunshine was missed. Lumber demand continues. Queer weather for Trego county. Many strangers the past week in town. Too wet for a good yield of watermelons. First step towards having a neighbor ing town. .Not much warm weather since last Thursday. Birds have commenced their migrator' trip southward. Bain and mist from Friday morning until Monday noon. Mrs. John "Webster arrived from Kan sas City Tuesday night. Geo. Y. York spent a portion of last week at Haj s City, on business. Louis P. Hitchler, of Ellis, visited Colly er again on the seventh inst. S. J. and J. N. Swisher, of Bushnell, HI., were at the Occidental on the fifth. Wm. Spicer had a sale of cows on Sat urday, at which he disposed of six head. Dighton, Kan., was represented in town Monday by J.H.Schwick and E.A.Debault Some wheat is being sown by our farmers, but a largo majority will put in their ground to rye. Ed. H. Phillippi took the train Fridaj morning for the. East, cam ing with him some pleasant remembrances of western Kansas. Stephen McNichols is reported as being quite "sick. A doctor's attend.'ince was desired, but, owing to the belated train0, none could be had. J. "W. Kleis prepared to take photo graphs, ferrotypes and make lememo porcelain and water-colors, for three woeks, at Collyer, Kan. 340-3 Ym. Morris is daily expecting the arrival of his wife and children from Holton, Kan. They return to resume their residence upou their homestead. A game between the base ball second nine and volunteeis on Saturday resulted in such a defeat for the former that they made sure that the score was destroyed. Frank Yvells returned on Wednesday last to engage with B". D. Chase. Frank is one of the boys to be relied upon, and his friends are glad to welcome him back. County Surveyor Ferris and Mr. Baker, of Wa-Keeney, passed through town the first of the week, on their way to lay out the new town site between Collyer and Buffalo Park. Curiosity was considerably aroused by the initial advertisement in this column last "week, but not until Tuesday was it satisfied, and then it plainly meant- big bale of hosiery. Collyer bohool began Monday morning with but few pupils, owing to the heavy fog which prevailed. The long faces of the scholars at noon told plainly that they misted their former teacher. More than one rejoices thatH.D. Chase has decided not to move his house, but to enlaige it where it now stands. It 'is always sad to see familiar landmarks re moved, especially when they "are taken away fiora town. Up to last Saturday no teacher had been secured for the Big Cieek school, south of Coll er. Some of the voters of that district are in favor of asking to have it united again with district number 2 that of Coll er. Don't expect to find much in this column this week, for it is something new in these parts to be confined within doors for two or three das at a time because of rain, mist and showers, accompanied by a cold northeast wind. On Friday evening of this week the B. B. second nine will give a dance in town, and the ladies of the W. B. C will furnish the supper at the Post rooms. The party has been hastily prepared, yet will, no doubt, prove a pleasant success.- Editor Burnett, of Buffalo Park, called on his Colher friends on Wednesday. One would think from the Pioneer items that the editor had opened a gentleman's furnishing house, ho has so often of late made ccats and caps to lit his acpisintanccs J. W. Carson, of Wa-Keeuoy, was in town Tuesday, making acquaintances, it being his first visit to Collyer. If a pleasing manner will secure ballots, sure ly Mr. Carson will make a strong candi date for the position of register of deeds 1 f Trego county. Any one wanting a job of blacksmithing done should call on Charles F. Malms, of Collyer, who is prepared to perform all branches of blacksmith work, including the repairing of farm machienry. You will find Mr. Malms readv for business at T.K. Phillips' old shop. " 310-3 The number of aged people in this part of the county is constantly increasing. The latest to decide to become permanent residents are Bev. and Mrs Elliott, parents of A. T. (not Walter, as stated last week,) Elliott, of the Smoky. A short time since they came here on a visit, with no thought of changing their residence, but, disliking to be so far from their son, they have concluded to settle here, and on Tuesday Mrs. Elliott returned to Boston, Mass., for their household goods. On every hand, a cordial welcome for them is heard. A full attendance was had last Satur day of both the Post and Corps, and at the joint session called to consider the subject of a cemetery much interest was manifested. A committee of nine, with Commander Wm. Hastings as chairman, was appointed to look for' an appropriate site. Representing the Post were Wm. Hastings, G. W. Kessler and James Sie bert; the town interests were confided to B. G. Kessler, Joseph Brown and L. lie Bron, and the wishes of the Corps were expressed through Miss Stickney, Mrs. Burns and Mrs. liaison. The committee' met on Monday morning and spent most of the day looking at different sections of deeded land, bnt no positive selection was made. It looks now as if the people are fully awake to the necessity of the caw and mean business. W. G. CASTLE ROCK RIPPLES, Castle Bock. September 8. Cold. Heavy rains. Bye is being sown. Farmers are preparing ground for wheat as rapidly as possible- Bye sown five days ago is growing finely some of it an inch high. Late cane, which seemed Taurned past all hope, is freshening up and coming for ward at a surprising rate. Tne contract lor building the new school house has been let to Mr. Purin ton, and the work is well under way. Mr. George Pitman, one of the early settlers in this vicinity, has come out from his Iowa home to take another look t Kansas. Steers are in lively demand.

Matter, one of the old-timers, has proved up on his homestead and ta ken a pre-emption in the eastern part of Gove county, where ho can have range for his cattle. Prairie schooners are passing through at a lively rate. Very lew linger here abouts, as nearly all the good land is al ready taken. Dighton, Lane count, seems to bo the favorite objective point. X. KANSAS CITY AND WA-KEENEY; Or, Nov the Mercury otands at 800 and 2,(00 Feet abbve the Sea Level. The ivansas Cifcv Journal ldst Monday contains this information: After all our grumbling we haven't had an awfully hot summer of it. 'There have been only twenty-seven darf when the mercury got up to 90, when, (luring pre vious summers, -we have had two months of the 90 deg. variety of weather. By consulting the Monthly Weather Beports of the Westzkn Kansas World, Tve find that Wa-Keeney, during the three months of June, July and August, had twenty-nine das Tlien the meicury ran to 90 or above. Heie are the dates, with the daily mercurial notches: June 2, 93; 4, 90; 5, 100; 12, 91; 11, 95; 15, 90; 20, 92; 2G, 92; 27, 91.

Western Kansas, like Kansas City, has had some very warm days this summer, but they have been few as compared with those of each other summers since settle ment was undertaken here. To put the case in another way, the mean tempera ture here the past summer has been un usually cool. Talking of temperatures in different lo calities: We would lather pass through a warmness at Wa-Keeney 1 epresented -by the mercury at 105 degrees than at Kan sas City AvitL. the thing fixed at 90. A Charming Testimonial. We did not ask for the testimonial which is hereto appended. Our sui prise at receiving it "was, therefore, great, and correspondingly pleasant. The history of the case is this: Mr. Sadler, the advance agent of the Johnson, Simpson & Co. circus, while in town, among other work ofdeied us to do the printing of 200 of Johnson, Simpson & Co's Hotel Contracts. We told him w e would print them so as to send them to him at Hays City. We did so. On the back of one of them he writes to us as follows: Lacrosse, Aug. 21, 1885. W. S. Tilton, Esq, Ed. World: Please except my thanks for the metro politan wo?k you did for me. It is a con solation to know that there are printers in a country job office, as well as in the cities. I speak from an experience amid job work ot 16 years, and I can say, with out tbe least exaggeration, that I never had a better contract printed in the best show printing establishments of the country than the one you did for us. Very cordially yours, T. B. Sadler. SCHOOL DISTRICTS. Second Semi-Annual Apportion ment, I8S5. no. or DIST. NO. OF DIST. 17.... 18.... 19.... 20.... 21 90. AMOUNT.

Such statements are wholly untru e. They are made, either through ignorance of the facts, or purposely to prejudice my can didacy and mislead the unwary. Those who favor fair dealing and believe in honest politics, please tako notice. 341 J. Word Cakson. Preparing for the Cholera. Chamberlain & Co., of Des Moines, Iowa, have received the car loads of bot tles so as to be prepared to supply Cham berlain's Colic, Cholera, and Diarrhoea Bemedy, in case bowel" complaints or cholera are epidemic this summer.
