V TO OUB EXCHANGES.
I expect to be at Topeka during the
approaching session of the legislature.
I msh to keep track of what you are
saying of "what your communities are
doing. I would dislike to miss the chance
to exchange editorial ideas with you.
Will you please, therefore, send your
papers to me at Topeka, instead of Wa
Keeney, during that period.
The Wallace Begister grasps the
opportunity afforded by the death of
General Logan, and nominates Judge
Gresham, of Indiana for the Republican
nomination for the presidency in 1888.
In our judgment, the Regfctci 's selection
is excellent. We do not want for tho
nominee in 1888 a "down Easter" or a
man who has not seen military service.
.That is, we believe that a man with a mil
itary reputation will run better than a
pure civilian, and Indiana is elegant rally

THE ICE HARVEST.
Mr. J. B. Hogan started last Wednes
day on a trip of a month's duration to
Minneapolis, Minn., and the Red River
country. He will visit his parents while
up in that region.

Large Quantities Put Up in Wa
The past week has been a busy period
for tho men who wished to save ice.
Unlike the practice of last winter, our
people have not had their ice shipped
from Ellis, but have had it taken from
neighboring water courses.
Of course, some from whom we have
not heard are ptuting up ice.
Sheriff Baker has 200 tons of what he
calls the nicest ice he ever saw in Wa
Keeney. W. S."Harrison has up 200 tons of
Among others who have put up con
siderable quantities are Dr. Conger, W.
C. Olson, M W. Beem and Dr. 'Jones.
We don't feel at this writing (Thursday)
like ice would ever be required again; but
they say gieat climatic changes are m
piogress, and it is to be supposed that
time will produce a period favorable to
the consumption of the article.
The board of county commissioners
were in session on Monday, Tuesday and
Wednesday. They transacted a large
amount of business. We shall not be
able to get the copy of their proceedings
before next week.
A POINT SETTLED.
A letter was written by the Commis
sioner of the General Land Office a few
clays ago in relation to lands in western
Kansas which have been certified to the
Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railroad
company. A report had been circulated
in western Kansas that the lands now
held by tlie A., T. & S. F. railroad, grant
ed to that company by the government,
would soon be subject to entry. As a re
sult there has been a rush to the land of
fices of Garden City and Lamed by per
sons who desire to get a choice piece of
government land for a very small price.
The registers refused to receive the ap
plications to enter, as the lands are not
subject to entry. Some of the applicants
then appealed to the United States Land
Commissioner, and that brought out the
Commissioner's letter, which concludes
thus: "Therefore, and in order to prevent
imposition upon citizens by misleading
representations, you are instructed to ad
'visealL persons who may apply to enter
certified lands that such applications are
"Wholly, useless." Kansas Farmer.
We are glad Commissioner Sparks has
hammered, for once, at least, a fit subject
with his official condemnation.

cox's, in district 29, is completed, except
the seats. The seating will be finished in

A day school is also in progress there.

Electric Bitters and seven boxes Buck
