Epwortb. League Entertainment
Tho Epworth League gave a very en
joyabloentertainmeut and social at the

The recitations and music were all good,
Tha following was the program:

Recitation Stella Sigler
Song ''The Saloon Must Go."

The German song we think was given
for onr special benefit, as none of the
rest seemed to understand it. The at
tendance was not quite so large as it
should have been, but will probably be
better next time. The entertainment cer
tainly deserved a better house.

A bright little boy in the primary
department of tho Wa-Keeney public

'What is blindness?" He answered:
"Struck in the eye with a stone." That's

in this judicial district flars City Sea
Unel. A great many of our readers will
regret to learn of the death of Boy
Proudfit which occurred November Gtb at
his homo in Friend, Nebraska. The
cause of his death was laryngitis. Mr.
Proudfit was a former resident -of Wa
Keeney and for a time was in the em
ploy of Marshall fe Ufford as clerk in
their dry goods department.
The next boom in Kansas will be in
fanning lands and not iu city property.
The great need of Kansas is the settlement
and cultivation of its farming lands.
Once that is done, the towns will take
care of themselves. No city or town can
prosper unless it has a good agricultural
country to back it. It will grow to a cer
tain point and there it must wait until
tho country catches up. Wallace Gazelle.
Why not organize a literary society?
There is nothing that would be of more
benefit to the pupils attending our pub
lic schools, and a great many outside of
the schools would be greatly benefitted
thereby. Wo suggest that the teachers
take the lead and we will render all tho
assistance we can. Let us talk the mat
ter over and then decide to have a regu
lar old-fashioned literary society - this
fall and winter.
