Yes, but intemper ance lacks a big majority of always being drunkenness of the alcoholio variety. Mr. and Mrs. "W. H. Barnes, of Stockton, wo see by last week's Record, were to start last Sunday to Texas and New Mexico, to be absent about six weeks. Mrs. Wright, wife - of the editor of the Iienora Leader, was 'seriously ill last week, but when that paper went to press on Thursday, her condition was im proving.

We wonder if snch a bargain has not been made with tho Democrats of Rooks .county, and if the Stockton Democrat in not the price paid for tho Stockton posi-oflice. Stock ton Record. And now Davidson, of tho Democrat at Kenneth, has ben appointed postmaster at 'that place. Tho fact begins to crop out plainly that Cleveland has settled on tho policy of appointing to a fourth-class postmastcrship every fellow who is run ning a Democratic pnpe-r or will premise to start one. But Tcrrill will, porhaps, bo beaten down yet by a righteous public sentiment which has begun to assert itself 'against his general recklessness. The Democratic central committee of Graham county, wo are informed, have united in a petition to tho Democratic gods to keep the old man out of tho post-office. They oppose with the keenest bitterness the el evation of the man to a place of trust, not merely because of his own putrid rec ord, but because they are "dead set' against his mistress officiating as deputy postmaster. P USEY S HE VELA TIQX. J. C. Pusey pleaded guilty of defrauding tho state-out of largo sums of money as Warden Jones's chief clerk at the peni tentiary. Judge Crozier, of the Leaven worth county district couit, gave him eight years in the penitentiary. Just fol lowing his sentence, on Friday of last week, Pnsoy unbosomed himself to a Leavenworth Times reporter. This now prieon convict declares that Warden Jones and Governor Glick wore at the bottom of tho conspiracy to swindle the stato. Coal in large quantities, Pusey al leges, was shipped to Atchison for the use of Governor Glick and a son-in-law of his, and Warden Jones, the same authority relates, connived at this and other swin dles to the oxtent of seeing that tho stato was cheated out ofher dues in the premi ses. Each interested citizens of Kansas must, of course, bo liis own judge as to the estimate which should be placed on Pusey's statements. Outside of this con sideration, however, is the fact that tho political Democratic enemies of Glick and Jones are at work magnifying the merits of Pusey's charges. These men aie warm on tho trail to defeat the confirmation of Jones's appointment as IT. S. marshal for Kansas. Thej' may succeed. A DUUMMLRS DOSE. Commercial drummers do sometimes develop into just about the lowest speci mens of humanity which can bo run across. One of this kind had a time at Kirwin a short time ago. He -went to a baiber shop. It was run by a man named Hyde a sort of invalid, by the way. Hyde's wife assisted' in the' shop. Hyde stopped out on an errand, and Rauff such was tho name of the drum mer made to the woman an improper overture. She resented the insult. Then Hyde came in, and- gave Raiiff a nearly-killing beating. Rauff was un happy yet. He sued Hyde. The cqse was tried at Phillipsburg. Hyde was fined 5 cents and costs, amounting to twelve dollars. On Hyde's complaint, Rauff was fined ten dollars and costs, amounting to thirty dollars. KAXSAS PATENTS. S. A. Haseltine &Bro., patent solicitors, Springfield, Ale, send the Would the fol lowing list of patents, which were issued to citizens of Kansas during the past week: Anderson, John N., and J. M. Sherman, Ellsworth, steam-cooker. Chapman, Ellwood, Emporia, store-service apparatus. Lantz, Isaac, Lane, churn, Ream, John A., Barnes, medicine for diptheria. "Wilcox, Reuben F., Augusta, adding machine. Two propositions occur to the Wobld in the nature of a basis for esti mating the probable result of the election in York state this fall: It the Democrats had not had control of the state govern ment, the electoral vote of that state last fall would'have been Republican, and if the Democratic ticket in that state shall be defeated this fall, the Republi cans will in all probability ,carry the electoral ticket in that state in 1888. .

Young Swank lives a few miles south of Gaylord. There are plenty of other papers which are nearly enough like it for prac tical purposes, but tho Lane County Herald of last' week was destitute of a line of news, local or editorial matter. Tho most of its spaco was taken up with U. S. land notices. It was the front wheels of a new wagon belonging to Moses Williams, which were smashed by a moving railroad train at Lenora a few days ago. The Leader says a subscription of twenty dol lars was soon raised for 'Williams, and that he intends to sue tho railroad com pany for damages. Miss Hathsuuk-, of .Russell, the Record relates, stooped down at tho rink two weeks ago to-night to oil her skates, when, on rising, she, in some manner, sprained the ligaments of hor left hip. She was carried home, and medical aid was called. She was, at last accounts, gotting along all right. s St. Jonns" is having himself -advertised in tho East as "late of Eansas, but now of tho United States." Kansas will be glad to hear that she i9 no longer re quired to bear tho whole burden of re sponsibility in a case co peculiarly op pressive and humiliating. Great Bend Tnbtt;ie. Heavy ordinance, well directed! The Greenwood County Republi can tells of peaches of a superior quality being raised.. .on trees in that- county, which aro sixteen years old- It appears to the Wop.LD that peach trres aie the very timber for the people in this and ad joining counties to raise in largo quanti ties within the next few years. They can be grown hero now with greator safety than trees of almost any other variety. Piiop. Borin's Eye up at Oberliu is trying to make it up with the G. A. R. boys. His paper fouud considerable fault with some of them for leading at that place in the, Grant memorial sevices to be more precise, for not asking the citizens to take an equal part. To use a vulgarism, the old soldiers did n. t tum ble to the Eye racket, so it now tumbles to theirs. They are generally on hand, and difficult to down. ''Many Citizens" o Colby sug gest, through the Tom Cat, that, J'looking to tho good health of Colby our hotels ought to clean the slop from their back doors and sprinkle a little lime as a disinfectant, as the odor which floats out upon the air is sickening to tho many who have to breathe the same." The Would will, without the aid of "many citizens," make the same suggestion to such Wa-Keenej landlords as need it. W. K. Young has shown the Be loit Gazette a pig with six legs. The ani mal lived until chickens picked it to death. That paper remarks: "Tho head and fore shoulders were perfectly formed, but about the middle ofthe badkitwas divided into two separate and perfect bodied, each supplied with hind legs, thus giving it a superabundance of hams. Pigs of this breed would command a big price in the market. Ivlr. Young will pre serve the monstrosity in alcohol." The Newton Republican says Sol. jMiller is getting to be a worse crank every week. SoL supported the ticket what more do yon want of him? The defini tion of a crank seems to be, a man with sense and sand enough f o use it in oppo sition to the contemptible humbuggery and fraud of Kansas Republican-prohibition. Junction City Union. Kow we are vindicated the. The World was the first paper in Kansas, as far as we know, to call Sol Miller a crank. We did it a year ago last spring. Deacon Martin, in his Union, kicked, and pretty much the same as said that; we might as well call everybody a crank. But now we have George Martin on the hip (wrestler phrase.) Allen Lemon, the editor of the Newton Republican, was superintendent of public instruction of the whole state of Kansas for four full years. Don't yoji suppose he knows the definition of "crank?' and how to appjy it? If he don't he ought to be. hanged for raping that high office But ye- think he does. ' - The Ellis county fair, which came off at Hays City, was something of a suc cess, wo judge from the lengthy report which ap'pears in the" Ger. Am. Advocate. Tho managers, however, were few in num ber. They labored under the same ban which generally accompanies enterprises of this character in a sparsely-settled re gion. Tho people did not rally to their assistance. Outside ihe display in ;fine arts and fancy work" and farm and gar den products, but little can be said of the success of tho enterprise. To be sure, there were a few dairy and horticultural exhibits, a bunch or two of sheep and a hog or two, perhaps three. Those, we do not claim, were all of that fair. We do claim that they came entirely too near be ing so. The few energetic men who in stituted that fair should bo given the proper degree of encouragement. C. C. Woods, who has been nomi nated by the Republicans of the Stockton district, in Rooks county, is a banker at that place, possesses business ability of a very high order, and should, in our judg ment, be elected triumphantly. There is not a spark of senso in electing to the office of county commissioner, men who are lacking in the first essentials of busi ness senso. It is, in many respects, the most important position known to the laws of Kansas. Mr. Woods is known largely away from home. In the spring of 188-i he was ono of the Kansas dele gates to the national. Republican conven tion. - Col. Prouty, of the Dodge City Cazvloy, like Col. Caldwell, of the Boloit Courier, is so nearly round in every direc tion as to render the turning "of a eomerT set a very easy thing, indeed. Thatis, we should, indeed, judge so. But, as the saying goes, we 11 oo switcliecl it it isn t hard to toll how Prouty has sat down so quietly on his own teaching and his va rious schemes looking to the eternal ranging of these western plains by the cattle. He is as quiet now as a clam, and we expect to seo him, by next spring, a regular agricultural boomer. This, from the Russell Record, is just about as flattering as any of the nice notices Avhich have been written of us, and breathes a spirit o fraternal feel ing that we appreciate thoroughly: "We had noticed the name of W. S. Tilton, of the Wa-Keeney Wop.IiD, was being used in connection with the office of State Auditor, but it struck .us that a boom of that cort was rather premature. In six or eight months the claims and qualifica tions of Col. Tilton may be canvassed. When the- proper time arrives we want brother Tilton. to give us the wink." The Reveille down at Jetmore is more than complimentary toward one of its neighbors. Listen fit it: "Gapt." Glaspie is the worst old blister west jot the Alleghanies. His talk is foul and in decent. He is commonly known as the Pawnee 'gasbag.' He was recently ar rested for disturbing the peace at a school. meeting, and sent to the Dodge City jail. It was hoped, that Hodgeman county would be rid of him for a time at least. But he is back again. At this writing weare not informed as to how ho broke jail." The Norton Courier extra of Sep tember 15 is a credit to that ever worthy journal. The extra is printed on good paper, illustrated with "cuts of the busi ness portions of the city north and west of the public square and of many resi dence buildings. These are accompanied with interesting Mstorical data. When enterprise is on the program, the Courier must always be counted. D. C. Milxer, of Atchison, who writes like he wants people to understand that he knows what he is talking about, declares that beer drinking is more harm ful than that of any other of the various alcoholic drinks. He claims that beer produces fatty degeneration, mental stu por and brutality, and that the most dangerous class of ruffians in our large cities are beer drinkers. The case of perjury before Com missioner Tinney this week resulted in W. M. SttdL Fred Soliday ana Douglas Soliday being held under bonds of $350 each for their appearance at the U. S. district court at JJeavenworth on the fifth pt nextr month. Kir-ain Independent Terjury ought, to be punished. - Jt?t - ISS. cJL. H. BLAI3, Land Attorney and Real Estate Agent.
