OFFICIAL PAPER OF T1EGQ COUITY.

Satdkday, July 30, 1887.
Captaih Houston is making a
newsy paper of the Golden Belt atGrinnelL
Ralph Criswell is back at Gove
City and in the newspaper harness, driv
ing, as usnal, at a break-neck journalistic
run. His new enterprise is called the
Gove County graphic.
Aitybody who can muster the
.courage to discuss local politics in earn
est in this kind of -weather is in -his
element when he insists that straight
fanning out here is the only legitimate
basis pi existence.
The Oakley Times thus tries its
hands at the teeth-story business: "Dr.
Keeney reports a new boy at Nelson Ja&
person's, northwest of Oakley, last Sun
day evening. The child had two front
.teeth fully cut at birth. This is a freak
few practitioners ever meet."
At a ,big meeting in Oakley ltst
.Monday night, the citizens nf that place,
with only one dissenting voice, determined
to support Logansport for the county seat.
It's to be Logansport or Russell Springs,
then; at least as far as ihe temporary
4cpunfy seat is concerned.
40 of Each 160.
Trego county has a citizen by the name
,of Douglass, who located some seven or
eighfc miles south of Wa-Keeney in April
last. Mr. Douglass presented to us on
Thursday his scheme for making qt Kan
sas in a hurry an agricultural region. It
is to secure between now and the meeting
of the next legislature the signatures of a
majority of the voters of Kansas to a
petition embodying the proposition that
in the near future forty acres of each
quarter section of prairie land in the
state shall be brought under cultivation.
At least five acres shall be broken in
each year until the forty acres have been
attended to. If the owner of the land
fails to have the plowing done, any one
may do it, and collect pay therefor from
ihe owner of the land. Land planted to
timber or grass is to count as a part of
the requisite forty acres.
There is a golden thread running
through this theory of Mr. Douglass's,
but he will find, after all, that Kansas
people will prefer to retain the right to
dictate the extent jof plowing to be done
on their individual pieces of land. Na
ture has a way of her own for developing
the plains, and we never have seen a man
who could not improve on that way.
Nature's way is not to rush matters. She
kicks with remarkable efficiency against
making to-day'-e corn field in yesterday's
bu$! alo-grass lawn.

Kovenge on the pigeon tribe eems to
have been determined on by the city
authorities. They were getting pretty
thick, and their roosting in the M. E.
.church belfry was not appreciated. Con
siderable shooting in the direction of an
nihilating them has been done this week.
Wednesday evening an accident, fortun
ate in result, grew out of this shooting.
.Councilman Blair was following with his
gun muzzle a pigeon as it flew from the
Pennsylvania Investment building. The
bird flew precisely -between the gun and
Frank Hill, a colored man, who was
standing in the north door of The Cleve
land kitchen. Just then the load of bird
shot was discharged, perforating the up
per half of the door screen in half a
hundred places, and striking Hill in he.
face and breast. The bird shot was
picked out and Hill is all right.
The Lawn Social.
ThiB event, -which came off Tuesday
sveningj under the management of the
ladies of the Presbyterian church, was a
grand affair. Lawn tennis was played
on the beautiful grounds just south of
Mr. Barnes's residence. On the lawn
close by tables were laden with cake, ice
cream and lemonade. The attendance
was large, the social entermingling
pleasant, and the size of the net receipts
about thirty-two dollars.
