W S. srs-A-iax. STTiBSCiRinFTioiisr, $2.00. EIGHTH YEAH. TO SUBSCRIBERS. It is our aim to secure Between this and Jan. I, 1887, A settlement with every one who is in debted at the World office on eubscrip tion. Those who recognize the relation are requested earnestly to lose no time in call ing on us or writing to ascertain the amount of indebtedness, and investiga ting our clubbing offers for the coming year. Those who shall not have attended to this by the first of December WILL BE SENT A STATEMENT OF AC COUNT. Our readers are prosperous. We are in urgent need of money. We wish to make all these collections xviihmfc the employment of a profesional collector. The settlements can thus bo' made with mutual pleasure and profit to "all con-' corned. It is not to be doubted that the Woman's Christian Temperance Union in Wa-Xeeney will do effective work. State Veterinary Surgeon Hol comb, the Review relates, was in Ellis on Monday of last week, and "made an ex amination of several cattle belonging to Augustus Shepherd that have died re cently. He found that death resulted from dry murrain causod by eating too much dry fodder. Wo have heard of a number who have lost cattle recently and who supposed that they had been poisoned. They were probably afflicted -with this disease." The Star Sentinel speaks in terms of eulogy concerning Mrs. H. P. Wilson and other Hays City ladies for the masterly manner in which they handled the comic opera "Penelope" in -that city Tuesday evening of last week. A portion of that paper's comment is: "Of course the humorous tending of the opera found its center in 'Penelope,' and Mrs. H. P. Wilson, who took this part, was evidently the person for the place. All the actors are to be congratulated upon the extreme success with which they played their extremely difficult parts." USES OP OHATOBY. There is, well remarks a contempory journal, no branch of education that one realizes greater benefit from in life than the ability to clearly and forcibly express one's ideas in public. While the press is "becoming a great factor in molding and expressing ideas to the public, oratory, nevertheless, 5nds its use. We often hear ridiculed the college boy's attempt jb& oratory, which, on the part of the press -or the individual, is bad taste. This branch of education is something that every student should pursue with the greatest care and assiduity. Ideas and understanding in one's head are very good thincrs, but unless they are in a shape to be expressed the world is none the wiser. The young man in college and in active life should avail himself of every opportunity of declaiming, for in that branch he improves in every effort, as he does by learning well a lesson in .any branch that he may be pursuing. With a man in public life it matters not how much knowledge he may possess, if he is unable to forcibly and clearly ex press his ideas in public speech his influ ence extends but little beyond himself. In our national congress if one will look over the past, the men of influence and renown were those who were able 'to clothe their ideas in good language, and in a forcible manner express them. s Among those, for example, were Patrick Henryj Fisher Ames, Daniel Webster, John Bandolph, Charles Sumner, John C Calhoun, Henry Clay and others. While many others were equally wise,they lacked that oratorical power and their names are forgotten. In public meetings when questions of importance come np theie is nothing in a man' that yields ach influence as the power of express ing publicly his views. A man may be a first-class parliamentarian and owiflood of hght on the worst-storm-so-early- jut what should be done, yet if he is naable to speak in public he is with out influence. These examples are seen al- aaoat daily by every reader of the World, -when the man gifted as apublio speaker, or acquired through hard study or prac tice, shows his influence in society. - 'Tbese facts, which none fail to see, should prompt every young man and school boy jMTer to neglect anything that would .able him to better express himself in jwWie,. tip WA SELECT YOUR HORN: Were it not for the insulting impudence, the advice of some of the new Democrat ic papers to old settlers in western Kansas on the subject of making final final proofs on their claims would be amusing. Nobody is arguing that the government domain should be seized by fraud. A decent respect for the rights of the settler does make contemptible many of the purely-technical acts of Democratic land officers m rejecting applications for making final proofs. As we have said on past occasions, theso technical rulings fall with the full est force upon the class of people who have stayed here through this region's adversity. In addition to the technical rulings which lender it well-nigh impossible for those -who are the most deserving to make final proof, applicants are frequently kept in ignorance as to what paper will be given their notices for publication. Fie quently the papers published nearest their claims are ignored for the benefit of some pet organ whose place of publica tion is at a much greater distance from them; and this in absolute defiance of the i tilings handed down to land registers from Washington. Land Commissioner Sparks's latest order, that the forms of final-proof papers be changed completely, is without sense if it be conceded that the blank forms which had been in use were recognized by him. Of course, this recognition on his part will not be questioned. The fact is, the land laws are the cre ation of the Republican party. They were enacted amid the ferid opposition of the Democratic party. The mildest possible explanation of the present Dem ocratic method of conducting the land office business, therefore, is that the policy of the party is to render odious the land laws, with the view to socuring their repeal. If this theory is held to be untenable, there is, then, just one other which can find lodgment in a clear brain. This is that the Democratic party is sus taining its past record by displaying its utter incapacity for the transaction of public business. Grab either horn of the dilemma you prefer! " RARELY." Rarely has a party been so completely demolished in the discussion of the issues of a campaign as has been the Re publican partv in the late canvass. The Democratic orators have been more than matches for the Republican orators in in forensic abilitv, and Democratic poli cies, state r nd nationd exhib td sile by side with 1 Republican policies, have re flected the highest honor and by contrast effectuallv paled their Republican rivals. Scott City Ha aid. The editor of the Heald,NLv. Case, is elected delegate to the legislature. If, outside of this, he can construe the defeat of Moonlight for governor, and of nearly all the prominent Democratic candidates for congress throughout the country, into a demolition of the Repub licans in the discussion of public ques tions, he is welcome to his consolation. Neither Democratic papers nor Dem ocratic orators have, in the campaign just closed, advanced a new idea in poli tics. Outside of their vicious sentiment on the Southern question, their campaign thunder was made up of principles which the Republican party had origi nated, and thrown aside for the purpose of originating newer ones to suit the changed conditions of later times. HARD STORMS NOT NEW. We frequently hear the remark that the storm of last week was the worst ever known in western Kansas so early in the season. We distinctly remember a storm which occurred early in November, 1872, in which the writer of this and District Clerk Case were snowed up in a hunter's camp at Grinnell, on the Kansas Pacific The storm was fully equal in violence to that of last week, and the temperature was much lower. Do you not remember it, Billy? Norton Courier. The above, from the pen of Mr. J. H. Simmons, who has lived in Norton county for so many years, is likely to let in a in-the-season people. As history, Mr. Simmons's statement will stand uncontra dicted. Lurking among Mr. Simmons's re marks concerning the weather in western Kansas not being new, is the suggestion 61 a proposition which we have often been tempted to make on reading in tho newspapers published out here that the winters are growing colder, as the result of the country changing-to be suit-. stock: ZEiRiMHirsra- tkie - KEENET, KANSAS, SATURDAY, DECEMBER 4, rible for farming purposes. Our propo sition in answer to this sentiment for it is a sentiment, if not a dream is that the buffalo grass will have to go before this climatic change will come with per ceptible force. There are the same reasons for predicting a coming change of some magnitude in our climate as there are for believing the buffalo grass must go. We believe that the buffalo grass must go, but we know, hy eight years of inspection, that it is not going in a hurry. He lives to but poor purpose in west ern Kansas who fails to accommodate himself to her conditions, instead of per sisting that she shall, without the lapse of time, kick Nature overboard, and do his bidding!
