NEIGHBORING NOTES, Items From Towns and Counties Doing Business at "Wa-Keeney. A Big Showing, but All the Better for That. NESS COUNTY. Xees City Times, July 29. "Will the mayor and council .take the .necessary steps to close the gambling hell that is being run in our religious town on the sly?' Sheriff Rogers received six postal cards Tuesday evening, five enquiring about stolen horses -and one making enquiry about four lost children. At the city election Tuesday Geo. S. Redd was elected mayor, D. E. McDow ell, police judge, and O. H. Laraway, E. B. Linville, Sam A. Smith, F. C. Borth wick and G. S. Baker, councilmen. As soon as these officers qualify, and a few necessary ordinances are passed, and a city attorney and marshal appointed, Ness City will be a city in "full blast." .Ness City Xcws, July 31. It used to be "we need only rain and railroads." It is now "we need only railroads." Trego county receives annually 25,000 in taxes from the U. P. K. E. Ness coun ty wants about four times that amount of tribute to her treasury annually. Reports from the southern part of Ness county, and indeed from every portion of iho, county, indicate that the corn crop is assured by the recent heavy and soaking rains. On Sunday evening, about 11 o'clock, the cry of fiie was sounded, and it was ascertained that Fleming & Potter's gas oline cars, in the rear of their hardware store, was on fire. A crowd soon gath ered, and through the bravery of Mr. J. M. Grove, who rushed into the cave with p. blanket and smothered out the flames, a most disastrous fire was averted, as jtherp were several barrels of gasoline oil in the cave. The origin of the fire was this: A young man by the name of Harry S. Emmerst had some bottles of the pro hibited article stored in the cave, Jind it appears that the hour had come when there was a demand for it. Young Em merst w as appointed to go to the cave and produce it. The bottle of beer was not easily found, and Emmerst thought lessly produced a light, and an explosion followed. Nothing "but the accumulated gas burned. The fire was put out before anything further, except some gasoline that leaked om) of the barrels, caught. Mr. Emmerst -was terribly burned about the face, head, neck and hands. 4 This will be a valuable lesson to thought ful people Ness City SenLnel, July 31. Several children in the town and coun try are having the whooping cough. G. E. Delong and Wm. Prouty, of Dighton, are in the city, copying the rec ords of Lane count-. Wm Fehan was thrown from his pony while entering Ness City "Wednesday, and somewhat bruised about the head. "We are sorry to record the serious ill ness of J. K. Barnd, one of the editors of the News. He has a severo attack of cerebro-spinai fever, and his condition is quite precarious. Sheriff Sogers was at Great Bend this week, carrying a warrant to arrest one Conly from getting money from the Great "Western Circus on fale pretenses. If Conly got any money from tho Great Western, ho is entitled to a ribbon. SHERIDAN COUNTY. noxle Sentinel, July 29. About three inches of rain fell during tho storm of last Friday evening. It was a regular soaker, and our farmers are correspondingly happy. Copious rains throughout Sheridan county within the past week insure an abundant corn crop. A bountiful jield of all kinds of small grains has been har vested and well secured. Tegetables of all kinds give promise of an immense crop. Altogether, the horn of plenty has again been drained for northwest Kansas, and an era of general prosperity is assured. LANE COUNTY. ' Dighton Herald, July 29. G. "W. Eichelberger and T. J. Barkley wore recent Dighton representatives at Wa-Keeney. Last Friday N. C. V. "Webb brought to the Net aid office, from his homestead near town, a bunch of oats measuring 52 inches from the roots to the tips. L. 3. Watson is drilling a well on his plaim, two miles east of the Ness county Imel The depth now reached is 375 feet, and still there is no water. He will still go on till he finds water or something more valuable or gets stuck. Judge Wilson, of Wa-Keeney, Kansas, was hi our city Monday on business. He loft for Scott City, and will return to Wa-Keeney via Dighton in a few days. The judge is Or splendid business man, and we wish that the wfcst was full of such men. vt , SCOTT COUNTY. Scott City XeTs July 29. Dr. Hall was offered 1,500 for tho cor aor lot by tho town ygH and would not accept it. Many of the farmers will have winter feed for stock for Bale this fall in this fioniityr -Piof. T. E. Hubbell left for Sterling last Tuesday where he will take charge of the Normal. Different portions of the county had good showers of rain during the past week. The Daily Sentinel of Garden City do nated S10 towards the building of the M. E. church at this place. Tho corner stone of the new M. E. church will be laid on Saturday, August 7; appropriate services by Presiding El der George. Scott City Company donated a lot on Main street, on which to erect a reading room, also tho advertising space on the town welL We understand that an application will be made before tho judge of this district for a writ of injunction, enjoining the commissioners of this county from re ceiving the fourteen or fifteen hundred dollars' worth of books, bought by the temporary county commissioners, either on the ground that said temporary com missioners have no authority to contract for such a liability, or that our county is not yet financially able to invest this amount in county records. SHEEMAN COUNTY. Leonard New Tecumseh, July 30. To-day our public school closes, and under the caro of Miss Gandy, it has pnned a success. Leonard is to have another newspaper, and it will be owned by Mr. Hedrick, of Olathe, Kan. Sherman county will soon have enough papers to keep the people posted. A paper to every family ought to be enough. Mr. Edsall, who lives on the sw of 23, 8, 42, informs us that some one, last Wednesday evening, took lus shanty, but as jet has failed to return the same. Positive proof can be prodrced, and un less tho party returns the lumber, legal action will bo commenced.

ELLIS COUNTY. EUU Review, July 30. Ellis is to have a grain elevator at last. The corn crop promises to be larger than ever this ear. A number of our .school teachers are making preparations to attend the Nor mal at Hays City next week. The commissioners have not as yet called an election for the proposed road through this county, owing to the fact that tho petition lacks about 50 of having the requisite number of signers. E. N. Hutchison has been offered the contract for plowing the fire-guards on tho Santa Fe road from Dodge City to Denver. If his terms are accepted, Mr. Hutchison expects to start to Dodge City with his entire force tho latter part of next .week. This is the largest contract that Mr. Hutchison has yet 'undertaken.

J., are here on a visit, and will spend several weeks with their brother. . r Mr. L. J. Bliss brought to our office as fine, ripe a peach as we have ever seen in' any country. We suppose this is the first pe.ich ever grown m Gove county. We heard a farmer living west of Grin nell say, "I have 20 acres of corn which will yield 50 bushels to the acre." Let eastern Kansas beat this on a 20-acre field. GoVo City Gazette, JulytJl. Eev.

Active measures are being taken to build a Catholic church hero. Mr. C. Kano is pushing the enterprise. At a meeting of the citizens of Grain field, it was decided to kill all dogs found running at large upon the streois un muzzled. A good step at this stage of the hj drophobia. We had tho pleasure of meeting-Mr. H. D. Stebbins, ex-sheriff of Ellsworth county, on Thursday. He is starting a general merchandise store at Grinnell, and is like most Grinnell people, a very agreeable person to meet. Our school board deservo credit for making such good rale of our building bonds. They sold them for a hundred cents on the dollar, and only G per cent, interest. The state school fund is the purchaser. Mr. J. T. Thompson had the misfort une to lose cousiderablo hay by the rise in the Saline valley. It seems that they had something like a water spoilt out there, causing a very rapid rise in the liver and all the draws in tho neighbor hood. ' A great deal of excitement was created here Monday morning by the report that a dog belonging to W. D. Ure had gone mad, and bitten a good many dogs in this vicinity. Several dogs 'nere lulled, and as many more muzzled and lied up. We can not be too caieful about this thing. Every one should be on his guard. We understand that W. A. Sternberg has purchased the two and three j ear old steers of Frank McCafferty, paying there for 30 and 40 dollars and cows and calves at 80.
