Satubdat, November 26, 1887. FARMEBS' INSTITUTE. " The work o the World in behalf of farmers' institutes has had the ef fect of keeping alive the embers of interest in their behalf. It is the determination of our live fanners to hold an institute within the next few months, which will lje product ive of inspiration to the farming class in their work during the sea son of 1888. We have been advis ed by a representative of this class to say now that a farmers' institute will be held at Wa-Keeney some time during the coming February. Before the time for holding the in stitute is definitely settled, corres pondence will be had with the fac ulty of the State Agricultural col lege, at Manhattan, with the view of securing one or more of their num ber to assist in its management. That the World has been the steady friend of the farmers of Trego county, will be admitted by all of them. We would now fall short of the line of true friendship, were we not to insist upon their taking a working interest in this institute. An institute for farmers is not a whit less important than an insti tute for teachers. No one farmer knows all about farming. There is no one farmer who does not know something about 'it. A mutual in terchange of theories upon a hun dred points means the absorption by each attendant of many wholesome ideas to be by him put into profit able practice. The chief department of the aver age Democratic paper in this land dis trict continues to be edited to the brim. "We refer to the final-proof-notice depart ment. About the latest news is that Jndgo John E. Phillips, judge of the court of appeals in Kansas City, has been appointed land commissioner to succeed Sparks. Somebody is alleged to have sto len the election cigars in Waring town ship, Ness county. The Nexvs sajs th& thief wears a number sixteen, and asks, "Who is he?" This is rather a serious reflection on the number of fellows down there who wear number sixleens. "Woman's Work," a new publi cation of Athens, Georgia, has reached us. It is a sixteen-page monthly, owned by T. L. Mitchell, of, Athens, and edited by Mrs. Ella E. Tennent, of Marietta, Georgia. This journal, as its name indi cates, is devoted to woman's work. Its price is 50 cents per year, and this is cheap. The Prairie Farmer calls atten tion to the fact that cash corn closed on the 14 of this month in Chicago at 45 cents a bushel, while just one year before it was worth only 35 cents. That paper would not be surprised to see the price of corn advanced to 50 cents in Chicago be fore the new crop is raised. Forty-eight cents is the present price for May deliv ery. Large sections of southern Illinois, southern Missouri, northeastern Arkansas and western Kentucky and Tennessee are beingjlevastatedby fires. Dispatches from Cairo say the woods are on fire for fifty miles in every direction from that place. The entire country is enveloped in smoke, and the sun resembles a ball of fire hung in the sky. Last Saturday's high wind gave the fires great impetus, and there seems little prospect of stajing the flames, while the unprecedent drouth continues. A Lawrence, Kansas, dispatch of last Monday pays the order obtained by J. T3. Watlrins, restraining the National Bank from loaning money to the Western Farm Mortgage Company, was up before Judge Benson, of the district court, and Mr. Watkins's application for an injunc tion was withdrawn at .his own request. The more the points in the crusade of "Watkins against this mortgage company are developed, the plainer the conviction is forced upon the public that he has been floored justly at his own game of spite work. It is understood, at last, that Hon. E. N. Morrill, of -Hiawatha, will seek to be returned to congress from therst district This settles the fact thar he will not be a candidate for governor; This is a wise decision on the part of Mr. Morrill. He is believed to be the only Republican in the first district' whose election to that office can be sure in 18S8. 1 There are a good many Republicans who could beat any Demooratic candidate for Njovernor, Mr. Morrill is a banker. Had vne taken the field for governor, the issue tween a banker and a farmer would ve been raised. The fanner would - won. The Worldia for the fanner, A."W.

The'fore part of last week John Hull, of Ogallah, wished to go to McCracken, Bush county, to take to that place a boy named Sam Hill and a sister of Sam Hill's, both of whom had been stopping at Henry Hull's hotel, in Ogallah. The next thing was to get a rig for the trip. Application for a horse was made at Charley Eidgway's livery stable, half a mile north of Ogallah. Charley was out west somewhere. A fourteen-year-old boy was keeping the stable for him. As the story goes, this boy referred John Hull to Lafe Smith, saying that whatever he said would be all right; Smith, when seeD, said that whatever the boy saw fit to do would be Satisfactory to him. Hull claims that the boy then let him have the horse. Hull then got a buggy of Hudson Harlan. The trip was made, and consum ed about three days. During the third day Smith sent word to Charley Ridgway, who then happened to be in Wa-Keeney, that his horse was stolen. On this news, Ridgway procured a warrant, and Under Sheriff Escher started after John Hull. He found him about half a mile east of Ogallah, on the way home, and brought him before Justice Hutzel in "Wa-Keeney, where the prisoner furnished a bond of 8300 for his appearance for a hearing last Tuesday. County Attorney Harlan ap peared for the state," and F. Danford for the defendant. It was believed that there was too little substance in the charges to warrant further prosecution, and the case was dismissed. The cost's will probab.ly amount to twenty-five or thirty dollars. They will be paid by the state Ward's Compensation. Geo. C. Ward believes in the law of "universal compensation." He states that, as a partial compensation for the sickness of his wife, and his entire lack of'participation in Thanksgiving festivi ties, he received Thursday night the fol lowing telegram: Lawrence, Kan., Nov. 24, 1887. Geo. C. Wat.d, Wa-Kecncy, Kan.: We have a complete victory. We shall now take care of all your business. Will advise you when to begin operations. The above is the strongest possible ev idence of the financial strength and envi able credit of the Western Farm Mort gage Co. Few loan companies could have withstood such a terrible and vin dictive onslaught as that just made by J. B. Watkins, without becoming seriously embarrassed and having their business crippled for some time. It has taken the Western Farm Mortgage Co. just two weeks to outlive the effects of the mali cious and unwarranted attack.

A correspondent asks the Republican which are the states it counts as "certain ly Bepublican" in 1888, and which go to make up 182 votes in the electoral college. We give the list below: California 8 Nevada 3 Colorado 3 New Hampshire 4 Illinois 22 Ohio 23 Iowa 12 Oregon 3 Kansas 9 Pennsylvania 80 Maine 6 Rhode Island 4 Massachusetts 14 Vermont 4 Michigan 13 Wisconsin 11 Minnesota 7 Nebraska 5 Total 182 The total vote in the college is 401. Connecticut and Indiana together have 21 votes, and Indiana and New Jersey to gether 24, so that the Eepublicans may succeed by either of these combinations without the aid of New York. The Democrats, on the other hand,have 153 votes which they may count as prac tically certain, although the Eepublicans have a "fighting chance" in two or three of the states named: . Alabama 10 Missouri 16 Arkansas 7 North Carolina 11 Delaware 3 South Carolina 9 Florida 4 Tennessee 12 Georgia 12 Texas 13 Louisiana 8 West Virginia 6 Kentucky 13 Virginia 12 Maryland 8 Mississippi 9 Total 153 Add Indiana, 15; New Jersey, 9, and Connecticut, 6: total, 30, to the Demo cratic column; ancbifcis.stilll8 voteashort or tne number reqturea.jp eiecx. , p win be seen, therefore." that' the Democrats must carry New York, with its 36 votes or it cannot elect its candidates. Add New York to the 153 of the solid south, making a total of 189, and -it will-still need Indiana or both New Jersey ,and Connecticut. The Republican doesn't be lieve it can get either.
