A. Mulheim, the jeweler from Ellis,
was in Wa-Keeney a couple of days the

were on hand.
The people's party convention for
the Seventeeth Judicial district met in
Oberlin last Tuesday and nominated A.
T. Geiger, a straight populist. The fol
lowing resolution was passed in sub
stance : "That it is better that the prin
ciples of our platform should obtain

Anchor at Axtell, Kansas. In a recent
issue of his paper, we learn that he ex
pects tQ embark in the newspaper busi
ness in Oklahoma as soon as the strip is
opened t$ settlement.
We sjncerely hope that the Omnicrat
did not. intend for political purposes
to mislead the voters of Trego county
this week when it says that the county
commissioners levied 6 J per cent, for
current county expenses, 2 per cent, for
fire guard fund and 2 per cent, for court
house bond fund lOJs per cent, in all.
There is a wide difference between 10
per cen. and 1Q4 mills on, the dollar,
and it is a little early in the campaign
to make such reckless statements.
Hon. F. B. Dawes, of Clay; Center,
will Bpeak upon the political issues at
"Wa-Keeney, on Saturday, September 2,
1893. This is the day the republican
county convention meets and we speak

Dawes is one of theablestrand most elo
quent speakers in Kansas, and it is not
ftn that we have the opportunity of
3Kening to one who is so well qualified
to entertain and instruct. Don't forget;

tutes it is necessary that at least fifty be
enrolled. Our institute has over fifty and
therefore aid from the state to the
amount of $50 will be received.
All that honesty, experience and
skill can do to produce a perfect pill,
has been employed in making De Witt's
Little Early Risers. The result is a
specific for sick headache, biliousness
and constipation. Jones & Gibson.

cures rheumatism. 50 cent bottles for
sale by Jones & Gibson.
The success of Mrs. Annie M. Beam,
of McKeesport, Pennsylvania, in the
treatment of diarrhoea in her children
will undoubtedly be of interest to many
mothers. She says: "I spent several
weeks in Johnstown, Pa., after the great
flood, on account of my husband being
employed there We had several chil
dren with us, two of whom took the
diarrhoea very badly. I got some of
Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diar
rhoea Remedy from Rev. Mr. Chapman.
It cured both of them. I knew of sev
eral other cases where it was equally
successful. I think it cannot be excell
ed and cheerfullv recommend it." 25
and 50 cent bottles for sale by Jones &
Gibson,
It is a fact that during the past four
years C. C. Bestor has ministered to
your wants by the introduction, to Wa
Keeney, of more new and valuable arti
cles of comfort and luxury than has
any other of our enterprising merchants.
We would call your attention to his
celebrated Piatt Canned Goods. His
unapproachable Common Sense Trunks.
Bestor's Standard Teas 'Qhocolate
Cream Coffee, Boston Water-proof shoe
blacking for gentlemen, Gilt Edge shoe
dressing for ladies, Bestor's fly paper,
and many other new and excellent arti
cles too numerous to mention. Mr,
Bestor offers the only perfect stove
polish. "Enameline" is easily applied,
produces a fine polish and absolutely
makes no dust. Try a package and be
convinced. 8-5
m The alarm of "fire" is always start
ling and particularly so since our terri
ble experience last spring. There is
something about it that strikes terror to
the heart and causes the cheek of the
bravest to pale. The most ominous
sound that our citizens can hear is the
clanging of our fire bell. It has sounded
so often when it meant ruin and destruc
tion that we have come to associate dire
disaster with the sound. It has been
the sicrnal for evervbodv tn thmw nsirl
everything and, rushing to the scene,
render all the assistance in their power
wherever needed. Our citizens have al
ways responded nobly and, several times,
a conflagration has been averted by
their alacrity and we might say hero
ism. All this is only preliminary to a
suggestion that we wish to make and we
mention it in kindness to all concerned.
Let us have no more false alarms of
"fire." Twice within the past month
have our citizens been called out and
made the victim of a joke. It may have
been extremely amusing to some, but
we assure you that the great majority
do not appreciate amusement of this na
ture. They may not always respond
even when the alarm is given in good
faith and when their services are badly
needed.
F. M. Morgan was quite ilL,this
week.
Salina is revelling in home grown
watermelons.
The Kid nine everlastingly walloped
the Fats at a ball game last Tuesday.
Sirs. Cutler, of Ogallah, has return
ed from her visit to the World's fair.
Several of the old soldiers are talk
ing of attending the soldier's reunion at
Hutchinson.
Mrs. L. D. Monroe returned from
an extended and profitable visit to the
World's fair the first of the week.
There will be trotting and running
races by good horses, and also bicycle
races, at Ellis on August 19th. There
will doubtless be a good attendance from
here. See advertisement in another
column.
We have often thought that we
would like to meet the owner of the TJ.
P. railroad not that we had any special
business with him except perhaps to
suggest that it would be to his interest
to subscribe for the World but just
because we wanted to meet him. Well,
we met him the other evening on the
east bound train, and we don't care to
meet any more railroad magnates. He
was a little bit of a fellow, with a fierce
black mustache and for the life of us
we couldn't help thinking of a bantam
rooster we once owned he had such an
independent, lofty air about him. Oh,
you could tell in a minute that he owned
the whole business ; there was no mis
taking that fact. He came into the car
where we were and with a look that
seemed to say and that very plainly, "I
am running this train and don't j ou for
get it for the fraction of a second, he
jerked a boy clear off his seat because
he happened to be a little drowsy and
couldn't concentrate his mind all at once
upon his ticket. "That baby has mighty
good lungs" he snapped out at a poor
woman who was doing her very best to
quiet the child and who came very nearly
crying herself at the brutality displayed
by the fellow who owned the road and
wanted everybody to know it. A little
further on he talked very loud and looked
very threateningly at an inoffensive ap
pearing man and finally passed out of
the car banging the door as though he
would sooner break it than not. He had
a silver band on his cap upon which was
printed "conductor," but we know bet
ter. He owned that train. AVe were so
scared that we didn't dare introduce
ourself and so cannot give his name.
But we may meet again. We hope not.
We would prefer to ride on a freight
train.
A knowledge of the game law, now
m force, might be interesting reading
for some and we therefore quote from
the session laws of 1893: Section 1.
provides that "it shall be unlawful for
any person or persons, at any time, to
catch, kill, shoot, trap or ensnare any
partridge, prairie chicken, grouse, quail,
pheasant, oriole, meadow lark, red bird,
mocking bird and blue bird : Provided
that no provisions of this act shall apply
or interfere with persons who may ha e
in their possession or raise for sale any
birds as pets, or may at any time catch,
kill or entrap any of the birds mention
ed in this section on their own premises
controlled by such persons for their own
use." "The provisions of this act shall
not apply to any person who shall catch
or kill any wild bird or birds for
the sole purpose of preserving them
as specimens for scientific purposes."
It will be seen that the only shooting
that may be legally done in Kansas, of
the above mentioned birds, is by per
sons on their own premises, controlled
by such persons, for their own use and
benefit and they cannot delegate this
personal privilege to any of their friends.
In brief, those who do not own and oc
cupy premises where game abounds can
not hunt. If any of the above enumerated
birds should even attack you on the
public highway and threaten you with
great bodily injury you could not even
protect yourself under that statute.
Seriously, we all believe in a wise game
law, but this is the most absurd of
which we have any knowledge ; but it is
the law nevertheless.
NORMAL NOTES.
Fifty one enrolled. Prof. Rose has
been meeting the classes in philosophy

succession a good recommendation.
Query: A. and B. stand one mile
apart. If A. stands due east of B. and
B. due west of A. and A. looks due west
and B. looks due east, will they look
toward each other?
Miss Geneva Stephens and Grace
Hager were visitors the latter part of
last week.

in this annual gathering at tne county
seat?
Problem: Five men carry a timber 30

far from the other end must the hand

shall lift an equal weight?
. A Little Homance.
"All the world loves a lover" some
one said, a long time ago. This may be
stating it a little strong but one may say
and not miss it that the world is always
interested in a lover. Anything tinged
a little with romance will interest peo
ple when everything else might fail.
You could not imagine a more tired,
more disgusted, disgruntled, hotter,
dirtier crowd of people than were aboard
the train enroute west from Kansas
City. Brave men arose in their seats
and with the "I dare do all that may
become a man, who dares do more is
none" air told of by Shakespeare, hur
riedly threw off their coats and vests,
unbuttoned their collars, tied handker
chiefs around their necks and sat defi
antly down among the crowd of once
fair women, who sat sullenly silent, while
the last crimp faded from their naturally
curly hair, leaving the once pretty ring
let like so many diminutive horns.
Babies wailed because it was so hot,
then wailed again because it was no
cooler.
People eyed each other with cold
stares if you can imagine a cold stare
when the thermometer boiled and bub
bled merrily in the shade. Suddenly
everything seemed changed. People in
the "forrad end" of the car talked to
gether, smiled, nodded, and winked
knowingly at each other, then turned
around and whispered it to the folks
behind, and the newsboy carried it to the
next car. Then we all knew in a little
while that we could see her if we would
only go to the second car back from the
engine and that we would know her by
the "white bow" on her shoulder.
"Who is she?" "Why her name is
Jennie Shelton, so she told a lady in the
Union depot, and she is 48 years old, a
native of Little Rock, Arkansas; that
she has been corresponding with Joseph
Taylor, a widower, 52 years old, living
near Manhattan. Kansas. Well, Joseph
promised faithfully to meet Jennie in
Kansas City where they would become
one" that is one to the extent that
they might call each other "Joe" and
"Jen" thereafter.
"Why didn't he appear?" Was "Joe"
sick, was "Joe" a flirt, or was "Joe" a
fake?"
The lady counseled sending the ailing,
recreant, or mythical lover a telegram
stating that Jennie would, in the kind
ness of her heart, go more than half
way, in fact meet him at Manhattan.
Well, everybody was anxious to know
how it would all turn out and the trip
to Manhattan was taken up in sympa
thizing with Jennie or moralizing on
these matches made "sight unseen,"
and inferences were drawn from a simi
lar case, where two persons, once resi
dents of Wa-Keeney, were brought to
gether by that matrimonial paper known
as "The Heart and Hand."
Why had Jennie, who had remained a
maiden lady till the age of 48, when her
steel blue eyes were as cold and unex
pressionate as the eyes of a fish, now
taken it into her head to chase after an
abstract masculinity? Why? Well, you
go on surmising as we did, while I tell
the romantic, giddy girls that Joe did
not appear at Manhattan. That Jennie
nervously paced the platform with her
white bow pinned on her shoulder, to
the amusement and perhaps pity of the
crowd, and there, seated in the little
waiting room wjth her market basket of
belongings on her lap, we left her to her
sorrowful and lonely reflections and to
fate.
A Solemn Warning Take.
A horrible snake story comes from
Simpson, a station on the Beloit branch
of the Union Pacific road. Four resi
dents had bought a keg of beer and
taken it to a nice shady grove. After it
had been tapped and a few glasses passed
around all four participants became sud
denly ill. A deadly nausea affected
them and for several hours they could
not return to the keg. Finally the sick
ness passed away and the four deter
mined men began their ceremonies again
and drank heavily. Their illness soon
returned. Other parties tasted the beer
and every one was affected in the same
manner in proportion to the amount
thev drank. Finally the liquor was all
drained off and an investigation under
taken. In the bottom of the keg were
found the decayed remains of a rattle
snake. The skeleton and six rattles
were still there but the flesh and skin
had been soaked away and became
united with the beer. Wellington Mail.
Since writing the above we have firm
ly resolved that we will never drink beer
again out of a keg.
There Can be No Compromise.
"The Fats and Leans played a base
ball match at Wa-Keeney last week.
Being neither one nor the other Hill
Wilson preserved a strict neutrality."
Hays City Sentinel.
This kind of talk will do on the out
side, but we noticed that whenever we,
and some of the other boys on our side,
made our base hits, that Wilson did the
loudest cheering. Before we have an
other game, however, we will see that
he declares himself unconditionally or
we will have a committee appointed.
Make thefelost of It
We don't see why so much time is
taken up in the endeavor to court mar
tial Hughes. Hughes did what he is
nhfirced with doine1. He refused to obev
the orders of the Governor and what is
the use of fooling about it. Yes, he did
it and and should receive the thanks of
every citizen of Kansas who is. not an
anarchist for so doing. We plead
guiltv lor Hughes. Court martial him
ond hp. done with it. We would cive all
Ave are worth or ever hope to be worth
if we could be court martialed for a sim
ilar offense. If this is treason you
know the rest.
Communicate cL
In my young days I have attended
theatres and, before closing, they gen
erally presented a farce i. e. something
comical or laughable. Well there has
been occurrences of late that I class as
Farces. I will define.
Towards the latter part of the chap
lain's prayer in opening an alliance
meeune tne loiiowmg sentence appears:
"May all that we do be for the better
ment of humanity and. to the honor
and glory of Thy great Name." Now
how little some of the leaders think of
the above sentence. When they were
provoking the people to frenzy last
spring when they were trying to del
uge the state with the blooa of its citi
zens "to the honor and glory of Thy
great Name." An ignorant Farce 1
We have history, traditional and
written, from the earliest period of
Jewish history to the present, of the
crime and misery brought on people by
ignorant, false and unscrupulous leaders.
Now, some of the mottos of the grand
order are Fraternity, Unity etc. What
fault can be found with these mottos?
Did not the "Molly MaGuires" of Penn
sylvania have the same grand mottos?
You know fraternity means to help the
order if it were to sink you to the knees
in blood. Unity means that should any
man stand in your way crush him, no
matter how contemptible the means
employed.
"Vengeance is Mine" said Jehovah
but the president of the Trego County
alliance has over-ruled the Great I Am
and says that vengeance shall be his.
The said president of the Trego Coun
ty alliance is director of school district
No. 38. He is now on his third term and
each time was elected, partly, by my
vote. I also helped, during the past
seven years, to make him a county offi
cer, but in each of the latter cases my
vote was thrown away. This was done
to the detriment of my party and of
my own personal interest. You may
ask why I did so? I answer that I am
not an exception in being duped.
I had the wife of said county president
appointed treasurer of said district last
spring and several persons told me that
it would not be beneficial to have two
of the same family in office and upon re
consideration, I became of that opinion
myself and nominated a different person
at the annual meeting. This seemed to
be displeasing to the director and he
said "I will crush that invalid."
He had his cattle, about 80 in num
ber, drove directly east of me to devour
the little pasture that has always been
conceded to be mine, but we presume it
was all "done to the honor and glory
etc." A diabolical Farce !
Would it not be beneficial, Mr. Editor
if you would publish the "Golden Rule"
once or twice in your paper.
If a leader does not recognize the
law of falrnesss and justice to his fellow
man how can the followers be expected
to know what was never taught them?
"Do unto others as you would they
should do to you."
Chas. E. Siiinquix.
Trotting and Running Races
AT ELLIS, KANSAS, AUGUST 19, 1893.
The turfmen of this vicinity must not
forget the date, as this will be one of the
best meetings hereabouts . Among some
of the starters we mention Burden,
Black Douglass, Harry Lambert, Forest
King, Fred D. and others. This assures
a good time and good races.
The races will be three minute race,
free-for-all, and three year olds.
One of the features of the meeting will
be a bicycle race, quarter mile dash, with
ponies.
Everybody expected to be present,
and it will be a lucky man who picks
the winner.
See small bills for full particulars.
It's the Same Way Here.
In this county the democrats and pop
ulists have fused. The price paid to
the democrats for this debauchery was
two of the county offices. Verily do pro
fessions of "fighting for principle" come
from populist leaders like hollow mock
ery. Bribing the democratiC'Voter with
money would be no more disgracful than
bribing him with offices. Neither party
believes in the principles of the other
and each will vote to elect the other's
candidates, because it is a bargain and
sale made for the offices. Barden Eagle.
"Would Like to but Uan't.
"If the "Wa-Keeney "World would re
place its heading we would call it the
handsomest and best edited paper in
these parts." Hays City Sentinel.
Please don't notice us while we turn
our head to blush. But while we would
do anything, almost, to please our neigh
bor who says such kind words, it would
be too much like parting with old
friends to change our heading. We
can't do it.
As It Now Appears.
'"Wheeler for treasurer, Shorthill for
register of deeds and Brabb for county
clerk with a vacant place or two for the
democratics, is the way the populist
ticket is shaping up. We only give this
as a rumor. As soon as Eich, McGar
vie and Tom O'Toole decide for certain
we will know. Tunnell, oh no ! He only
furnishes the wind and the money and
is counted out on the brain work.
Mr. Smith Does Not Live Here.
Cimarron is probably the only town
in America that is without an inhabi
tant by the name of Smith. K. C. Star.
Altogether wrong. Wa-Keeney is four
times as large as Cimarrpn and has no
Smith. We might anticipate a trifle
and add in this connection that it has
any quantity of Browns and one Jones.
