Satubdat, Makch 16, 1889. Iy Ellis county personal property is to assessed at fifty per cent of its value. Tabds and alleys should be cleaned and kept so. Disease feeds and grows on dirt ' TVTtmi PlTJMMEB, of BuSSell SpriURH, was recently burnt severely while Mnd liap; a fire with kerosene. John Pabks, of Motor, Books county, the Plainville Timn tells, is going to start a canary-bird ranch. Govebnob HuMPHBEr has appointed V. H. Grinstead, of Dighton, judge of the thirty-third judicial district. The report is out that Jim Legate wants to lick postage stamps at Leaven worth for the next four years. When, in writing, "since" ceases to take the place of "ago," the period or some sense will have arrived, by Jol Ix making appointments, the - fact crops out that President Harrison keeps an eye upon those who have been his frieads. ' Mobeass, of the Ness City Times, affects not to care what we think of him. It would be a serious reflection upon our intelligence if he did! A man who won't attend a farmers' institute, and bring along his wife or sweetheart, should be consistent by op posing teachers' institutes. The large Bock Island railway eating house and hotel at Smith Center wes burned Tuesday afternoon. The loss was from $15,000 to $20,000. A aiiAscE at "Fashion Items" reveals the statement that small waists are going out of fashion. Small wastes are not going out of fashion. A iiOCAii company, the Stockton Record says, has been incorporated to go through the preliminaries of extending the rail road west from Stockton to Bogue. Govebnob Humphbei has appointed B. P. Williamson coroner of Graham county to fill the vacancy caused by the removal of E. C. Loomis from the county. It is sounded in the Reteille that the residence of S. Atkinson, six miles east of Hill City, was burned last week, causing serious loss. Only a few household goods "were saved. The Goodland Republican is pleased at the action of the legislature in reducing the salaries of 'the county treasurer and the county clerk of Sherman county to $1,000 and 8900, respectively. They are getting enough now. The proprietors of several drug, stores andbilliard halls in Goodland, the Repub Itcan tells, were pulled on Wednesday of last week for selling whisky. That paper adds: "The people of Kansas believe in prohibition, and will enforce the law." Colonel Bn.ii Hacknei is correct He says: "There are a lot of office-holders and hangers-on who are already pushing their claims for appointments. They should be Bat down upon, and the offices ahould be passed around to those who have not always been feeding at the pub- Uo crib!" - The talk is that President Harrison is pretty sure to appoint CongressmanByan minister to Chili. This mission payB $10,000 a year, and gives a lease on a per fect climate. This would be quite a change from $5,000 a year and the bois teroua climate of the Potomac valley and Kansas politics. JDbxkkwater is the name of one of two toen" who owriabout 1,000 acres of land adjoining the town site of Tribune, Gree ley county. They intend, the Enterfrne aays, to plant 600 acres of it to crops this season. There may be a shortage of xaoisture, if Drinkwatec's actions do not give the lie to his name. Thebb iB.no politics in crime," says -Judge Cunningham in Ids charge to the grand jury of Conway county, Ark. He has direct reference to the assassination of John M. Clayton, and admonishes that body to find, not only the fellow who fired the fatal shot but the conspirators who caused him to do it. The Kirwin CJnef of the 7 inst learns Ifcat a team of mules, belonging to Lewis OIney, living on Bow Creek, was taken from his stable the Wednesday night preceding by some party or parties un known, and taken to a place near Big Bend, aad there shot When discovered .oaeoi the mules was dead; and the other - jjracdering around with a bullet hole in WJ ita bead. .Sbkaxor Gillette, of Kansas, has mu) smwwl and does not force t to take it with him when be goes to Missouri.

He that there w bo OTer-prodaeooB. Z .Smmrior Gflat w THE SAME HEBE. So far as ire are concerned we are not so much interested in Winona booming as we are in settling up every quarter section of land in the neighborhood by good indastrions fanners, enough so that the merchants won't wear the seats of their pants out next winter waiting for trrde. Vinona Clipper. The Clipper is interested in the right direction. Our contemporary has failed to notice, however, that the towns out here are gen erally injured by receiving more than a just share of the booms. We hare in. view a plan for over coming this difficulty. This is for the farmers pf each county to form an organization for the purpose of seeing that the rural districts, are settled. This organization should contain representative men from every neighborhood in the county. The organization should have a meeting at a central point in the county once a fortnight or once a month. The securing or new. neighbors with money and energy would be ample compensation for the time thus consumed. Each member of the organization could have one or two places in his neigh borhood to recommend as desirable for the home seeker. By the aid of a little judicious advertising, the time would soon arrive when visitors in search of homes would attend the meetings of the organization to learn of bargains. In this manner all portions of the county could be heard from by the enquirer at one well-attended meeting. Our farmers should come to their approaching institute in Wa-Kee-ney, charged with the notion of making a bold move in this direction. By all means, let this organization be formed during the institute, and a plan of action for the coming year mapped out. ON TOP. Tilton, of the Wa-Keeney World, cems to have gotten the best of the Osborn crowd in the appointment of the ForestryiCommissioner. Tilton seems to be .a man who fights hardest when he's down. Elli Rezieu. Perhaps the trouble with us is in not having sense enough to know when we are down! There are a few facts, however, which can be relied upon. One is that, if we ever had any political prestige among our hosts of acquaintances throughout the state, none of it was sacrificed in the campaign of last fall; because our well-known Repub licanism was taken as proof that we weie doing what we believed to be right, and that county rows are to be settled at home. Another fact is that the ring outfit in this county have, thus far, lost all they cavorted around so crazily for last fall. The admonition from the outside has been, "Settle your quarrel at home, if any favors are expected from abroad." It does not require a man with two good eyes or the regulation quantity of common sense to see that this decree is gall for the ring outfit and nectar for the other side. From the judge of this judicial district down to the humblest hench man of the ring outfit there is not a man of decency or sense who can feel otherwise than weary over their future political prospects. Energy and boodle have brought forth only bitter fruits, and the question with them now is, 'If the jnaximum of our brain power and financial strength can produce nothing sweet er than this, what are we here for?" THE BOX ELDER BUG. It is probable that the box-elder trees of some of our readers have suffered from the attacks of insects. The insect which disturbs this tree is called by Prof. Popenoe, of the State Agricultural College, the "box elder bug," in recognition of its general food habits. It occasionally attacks the ash. The well-known habit of these bugs, observes the professor, of as sembling in numbers together upon the tree trunks or upon the sides of buildings renders their destruction a matter of comparative ease .by any of the simple methods employed against insects of their order. If no better means of killing them is at hand, they may even be destroyed, especially while yet immature, by brushing them off the tree with a coarse, stiff broom. Where no danger of injury to the tree is ap prehended they may be killed by scalding water or by an application of kerosene and water, as recom mended for the destructioa of other Uattcta. from toe, act tnat mrr feed upon plant juices by meanspf a beak, it will be seen that it isuae less to attempt to kill them by the application of direct poisons like Paris green, as some of our corres pondents have suggested. NO W FOR EVERGREENS. The World suggests the necessity of beautifying the court-house grounds, with all possible haste, bv planting evergreens along each of the walks leading to the building. A little care in the selection of species, and the proper degree of attention after planting, will soon ornament the grounds so as to give them a new charm. DELUGE OF LAX D PATENTS. The Stockton Record of the 8 instant said that nearly 2,000 land patents had been received at the Kirwin land office during the thirty days last preceding. That paper propounds these pertinent questions: Why is it that patents which have been dealt out with such a sparing hand to the owners of land in .this district for the past three or four years, now come with a profusion that is bewildering? Is it because the late administration found that it could no longer withhold the boon of proprietorship from the home steader, and would rather have the credit of conferring it than to allow its Republican successors to do it? "IT WILL STILL BE. The Grand Armv spent dnringthe past year the sum of $75,945 84 in aiding old soldiers and their families, who lacked the necessaries of life. With nearly 400,000 veterans enrolled in the oaganiza Hon, standing shoulder to shoulder and heart to heart, the republic has its own Grand Army whose valor and sacrifice it should never forget. Each year thins its ranks. Each month the old veterans are passing away. But as long as there re main any survivors of the splendid host who went forth to save the union, it will still be the Grand Armv, -whatever its number. Topeka Capiial-Commomvcaltk. The conclusion is correct. This fact should be a dazzling incentive to every Union veteran of the late war to lead a pure and useful life. Twentj-five years hence, and on until the death of the last veteran, the question will not be, "What was your rank? " It will be, "Were you one of the invincible army of national unity and freedom?" THE FARMERS INSTITUTE. It is to .meet on Thursday of next week. See that it is well attended. Farmers are more in need of encour agement than anything else. The proceedings of the institute will fur nish much of this. You know something about farming that your neighbor does not. May be you can learn something from your neighbor on this subject. Intermingle! Cul tivate a more elastic mind. This will bring a more elastic step. It is the graceful stepper who "gets theie." A strong farmers' revival on the 21, 22 and 23 of March. 1889, will be worth thousands of dollars to Trego county this very year. Come out, every one of you far mers, and help thrill the throng! THE CREAMERT. Enough reverses have been sus tained by our people to convince them that a creamery ought to be supported to the extent of everybody standing: by it. It is safe to assume that the Wa-Keeney creamery will be conducted upon the basis of pay ing for cream all that the condition of the foreign markets from time to time will warrant. It follows that our people who own cows should, in behalf of their own permanent in terests, jcheerfully stand by the creamery management upon this basis." With this disposition gen erally pervading the people of the northern part of Trego county, this creamery will not fail. The very fact that the creamery succeeds will be the cause of other manufacturing enterprises being started as time rolls on. Money can be kept at home by gathering the materials at home, and manufacturing them into fuel, instead of importing coal at costly figures. Money can be saved by manufac turing brooms at home, and refusing to purchase those which are im ported. Money can be made by manufac turing windmills at home, and re fusing to ship-funds into other re gions for their purchase. These pictures could be enlarged upon, i This region must be sude aeJf-aogUining if its popvlaikHrir to pontes any stability. Those who wiaVtp liv Iter hare a cosuioax i texwtm thev solving of thir great problem which confronts 'them. A manufacturing boom would be worth as ranch to Trego county as an immigration boom. It would be worth more. The fruits of a manu facturing boom would be perma nent. Those of an immigration boom are, to a great extent, evanes cent. If your name is on the program for the farmers' institute, do respond. Ton will thereby render the county a service. If your name is not on this program, you should attend the institute with the in tention of tearing to pieces the ideas ad vanced by the people who are. Compe tition is the life of trade, and the farming class out here is the basis of that life. , The Bauer State. And when the harvests from the fields, the cattle f om the hills and the ores from the earth shall have been weighed, counted and valued, we will turn from them all to crown with the highest honor the Btatethat has most promoted the edu cation, virtue, justice and patriotism among its people. President Harrison'' Inaugural. The president undoubtedly had Kansas "in his mind's eye1' when Ke said this. Kansas, that sent into the field, during the, war for the union, more soldiers, in proportion to population, than any other state. Kanses, whose regiments suffered a larger percentage of loss in killed and wounded than those of any other state. ' Kansas, that has a larger propor tion of union soldiers included in her citizenship than any other state in the union. Kansas, that has more- school houses and a less percentage of il literacy,and that spends more money for education, in proportion to pop ulation, than any other state in the union. Kansas, that has a smaller prison population per capita than any other state in the union. Kansas, that has more tenantless jails than any other state of the union. Kansas, where a free ballot and a fair count is a heritage of all men. Kansas, where' there is less drunk eness, less crime and fewer paupers than in any other state in the union. v Kansas, that gave Benjamin Har rison -a larger plurality than any other state in the union. Kansas, that has welcomed, and sheltered, and fused into a homo geneous population, people of nearly all nationalities of the earth. Kansas that has built more churches and school houses during the past quarter of a century than any other state of the union. Surely a state that can cite such facts as these is the commonwealth that should be "crowned with the highest honor." Atchison Cham pion. w State of Ohio, Crrz op Toledo, Lucas Codktt, S.
