Most of them are only going for recreation and to Batisfy their curiosity and do not contemplate taking up a residence there.

Mayers, of Oakland, Md says: "I have sold thirteen bottles of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy to-day and am literally sold out. This is the largest sale on record of any one prepa ration in a day over our counters.

Our mail service is a source of much discontent. Daily papers twenty-four hours old are not fresh news. Perhaps arrangements may be made so that we can get mail on the afternoon accommo dation. The Hughes court martial has been resumed. It is generally understood that the mileage and witness fees that would be dispensed at the expense of the state were potent factors in determining to have his trial begin. Mrs. M. V. B.

In the new system there will be no complication. Sheets will be issued calling for amounts from 1 cent to $3, which can be torn off to suit the purchaser. The postmaster will have no writing to do on it and the gender will simply endorse it the same as he would a check or draft. One cent will pay the charges for any amount up to $3. The success of Mrs. Annie M. Beam, of McKeesport, Peunsylvania, 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 cheerfully recommend it." 25 and 50 cent bottles for sale by Jones & Gibson, We desire to acknowledge, with tearful thanks, the delicate allusion to the press of Wa-Keeney contained in the resolution presented by the committee and "passed by the teachers assembled." This, to us, is like one of those little oases that we sometimes find strewn along our rough and arid pathway, and always doubly appreciated because of their extreme rarity. We assure you that this action on your part was entirely nnexpected. Next to receiving a red cored watermelon from a five-year's delinquent subscriber has this thought ful remembrance of the teachers touched us, and our ideas are too hazy to find adequate expression at this time. Come and see us and we will let you see our our office towel and paste pot. An exchange prints the following effusion which is not so very far from the truth: "Now the house fly in the morning all my rights and protests scorning comes without a word of warn ing to my couch of calm repose ; and be fore the sunlight peeping through the vines with dew drops weeping, this vile insect falls to creeping over my eyes, ears and nose. 'Wretchl' I shriek in tones despairing, spiced perhaps with modest swearing, and with adiective un sparing, 'get thy feet from off my face l Kjva upon tne senseless creature thus to pasture on my features or I'll swear bv all the preachers, I'll exterminate the race ! . But mv ansrv words defvino- rH 11 the fly continues flying over the couch nucrcxmu laying, in an aggravating way, till my very soul seems burning with an almost frenzied yearning for the bjsaconlighta defending of the resurrec tion day." A, W,2"futz, manager of the Western Union at Ellis, was in the city last Tuesday. G. M. Ufford will close out hie stock in Ellis and concentrate all his business in Wa-Keeney. A lawn social was held at the resi dence of George I. Verbeck last Thurs day evening. Pleasure reigned supreme. Miss. Margaret Hanna and Eddie Morgan, who had been visiting relatives in Wa-Keeney, went east last Wednes day morning. Prof. Harlan says the feminine gen der is still in the majority in his family. Another fine girl arrived Friday morn ing. All doing well. Prof. Olin, of the State Agricultural College at Manhattan, lectured to the normal students, and a large number of our citizens, last Tuesday evening. His subject was "Individuality" and it was handled in a pleasing and forcible man ner. After the lecture was a social and general good time. Superintendent Peacock introduced Prof. 01in last Tuesday evening and among other things said that he "be lieved it was the first time any of the faculty of our state institutions had favored the Trego County Normal with a visit." In referring to this Prof. Olin said that "the only reason we have not not been here before was because we had not been invited." We might use this statement for a text, but will retrain and only say that if our schools are not brought in the front ranks within a year or two it will not be on account of any lack of diligence and energy on the part of our county superintendent. We be lieve he has done as much hard work intelligent work too as was ever done before by any one who has filled that office in the county. If there is any thing in which we are all interested it is the success of our public schools, and we think the time has gone by in this coun ty when the office of county superin tendent can be held by those whose only ambition and ability seems to be in the direction of drawing salaries, to the con sequent and certain demoralization of school interests. We are Proud of All of Them. The World has a great respect for F. B. Dawes personally but is sorry that he still thinks it necessary to fight the rebels. He is as far out of the way as J. R. Burton. It is only a difference in ex tremes. Lawrence World. Bless you, child, don't get scared. Dawes wouldn't hurt a kitten. He is one of the mildest men on earth natur ally and it is chiefly because he has a deep bass voice and strong lungs that he is able to rip the sanguinary undergar ments to shreds and sew it up without once letting the applause die away. It is also the reason that he gets called "Colonel" in the papers, which shows that virtue is not exclusively its own re ward. Dawes is a mighty good fellow. You ought to go up to Clay Center and get acquainted with him. Abilene Re flector. Hold on, boys. If there is a big hearted, clearbrained and unselfish friend, citizen and republican, it is F.B. Dawes. He is it friend of Burton's and. so we all are, and Kansas is proud of her splendid young men who will rank with the best in any state. Capital. The F. B. Dawes referred to above will be the republican orator in Wa-Keeney on September 2nd. This will be repub lican day and nobody can afford to stay away. Remember that all are invited and a special invitation is extended to the ladies. From the Hays uity Sentinel. W. Gibson and wife, of Wa-Keeney, spent Sunday in Hays as the guest of Dr. Gibson.

Uncle Nathan Brown, of Wa-Keeney, rested his weary old bones on our office chair last Friday, as he greeted us with, "Mawn'in Boss, I's eighty-six y'ar old to-day. kin you-all do somethin fo' de ol' man?" A visit from Uncle Nathan is like a memory of the long ago a breath from ante-bellum times when a negro was a chattel. There is a queer min gling of pathos and humor in an account ne gives or one time ne was soia aown in old Kentucky. A good man and a bad man were bidding and he fearfully watched the bids as they slowly rose, but the good man finally got him. " j only fotched $382," said Uncle Nathan, "kase 17-y'ar ol' naggahs was pleenter- ful in dem pa'ts, and dis chil' wan't big nohow. From the Ellis Eeview-Headlight. uniy one man a day. it mates one feel almost as though he was out of the world. George Cross, of Wa-Keeney, register of deeds of Trego county, was in town on Monday. A. W. Nutz is now superintendent at the telegraph office succeeding F. E. Cole resigned. Mr. Nutz has been sta tioned at Collyer for several years and last fall was elected district clerk of Trego county on the fusion ticket. Several men were let out at the shops last Friday. Some of the men have worked here several years and their discharge is greatly regretted. It hardly seems possible that any further cut will be made, though there is no telling what may happen these hard times. An exchange says that somebody says that there is said to be one editor in heaven. How he got there is not posi tively known, but it is conjectured that he passed himself off for a minister and stepped in unexpectedly. When the dodge was discovered they searched the realms of felicity in all their length and breadth for a lawyer to draw up the necessary papers for his ejectment, but they couldn't find one, and of course he held the fort. About Seed Wheat Official C. H. Neff , chairman of the Board of Commissioners, is in receipt of the fol lowing letter from the general freight agent of the Union PacificRailway com pany. We give it in-full as being offi cial: "It has been decided by this company, in order to relieve the present situation, to carry seed wheat for the benefit of the destitute farmers, free from points in. central Kansas near the point of desti nation as possible to stations located in your county. The seed wheat in ques tion, in order to obtain the benefit of free rate, must be billed to the county commissioners themselves at the differ ent railroad points in the county, they in turn to give the farmers or parties to whom the wheat is to go, a certificate setting forth the facts that the seed wheat in question is to be used for the purpose designated and none other; these certificates in turn to be presented to our freight agents at the several sta tions who will take up the certificates, and cancel our freight charges accord ingly. The most easterly point from which the seed wheat is to be drawn is placed at Manhattan, Kansas, includ ing the branches. We shall depend upon you, as the duly ' authorized repre sentative of the state, to see that this seed grain is handled properly, and that none of it is used in a commercial way. No allowance will be made on any ship ments billed to others than the county commissioners. I should be pleased to have an acknowledgment of this com munication, with your understanding." The Board of Railroad Commissioners by their secretary also wrote County Clerk Hoar concerning the seed wheat question as follows : "At the earnest solicitation of several of the western counties, his Excellency the Governor, has called upon the Board of Railroad Commissioners, and S laced in their hands the responsible uty of soliciting and distributing any contributions that may be made, for the relief of the western farmers. We send you by to-day's mail, a number of blanks to be distributed among the several township trustees of your county, to be filled out by them and returned to you within ten days, showing those that are in actual need of assistance in procuring seed grain in each township. The Board has decided to call upon the county commissioners in the several counties to act as distributing agents for them, and they will forward to them a series of numbered receipts, one of which must be taken from each person receiving grain and the receipts so taken must be forwarded to this office each day. Please forward to us the names of the members of your board, that we may notify them of ficially of the action taken by this board. This board will only handle contribu tions such as are to be given to the peo ple free. Parties desiring to buy can do so through their county commissioners, or any other source that is desirable." When the Mills Shut Down. A friend called our attention this week to some poetry, which we publish for the benefit of those misguided repub licans who assisted the democrats in the late election, by voting the populist ticket. Those republicans who were possessed with a feverish desire to "have a change" now have, no doubt, all the change they want. The violent contrast of the four years of Harrison's reign, years in which the busy hum of industry was heard through the length and breadth of the land, when every wheel was turning with the present times is likely to make them think that changes are not always conducive to prosperity. "O, 'twas glorious last November when the victors marched away With red fire, drums and banners in magnificent array! How their eyes with rapture sparkled, how each loyal heart grew warm At the thought of poor old Benny swamped by cyclones of reform ! And how double extra jolly it would be to scotch and kill One W. McKinley and his blamed old robber bill ; But a different sort of feeling seems to permeate the town. And gas don't count for glory When The Mills Shut Down. O, 'twas altogether lovely then to nag the g. o. p. And furnish season tickets up Salt Eiver, don't you see? Slashing up official pudding, sure, such happiness must bring, While Maxwell gives his hatchet just a little extra swing. But, hold, here comes another sort of music in the air, That tells of empty stomachs, and pock ets plucked bare ! Where are these protection killers now, these spouters of renown ! Where, oh, where are these great re formers When The Mills Shut Down. Lo ! the great and noble Grover, what a valiant knight was he, To plant his No. 11 's squarely on "plutoc- rasee," And Adlai the fearless, of the weird and awful name. How his stirring deeds should echo on the trumnet-blast of fame ! How they'd turn the country over and then turn it back again, And scatter all the rascals from among the haunts of men ! 'Tis a glorious prospect, truly, for many a thriving town, But it peters out so easy When The Mills Shut Down. Trego County Leads the Procession. Trego county has once more made its name immortal, its personal representa tive this time being Mrs Ben C. Rich, ane the occasion being the court martial of Col. Hughes. The following is from the Capital: The first witness placed on the stand was Mrs. Ben C. Eich who told in words more eloquent even than her illustrious husband could have spoken of the gen eral cussedness of the republican party. She took a seat on the witness stand and after a few complimentary questions had been asked she arose to her ieet, moved the chair from the witness stand to the floor below so as to give her all the room necessary, then threw back her head much after the style of Mrs. Lease and launched out into a stojyjf thrilling events such as had not been heard by the court during the'tnaa. It had been carefully prepared beforehand and was delivered with great dramatic effect. She was in Representative hall throughout the day of the war, being one l l o olf Arvra-n -nnrmlists Who remained there while the republicans J had possession. She picturesquely de scribed the entrance into the hall of the Douglass house when they had broken in the door. "They sprang into the room like demons," said Mrs. Rich, "and once inside they acted like mani acs. A few populists were inside, and immediately they were angry cries from the Douglass crowd of 'Kill them,' 'Kick them out The furor made by their crazy shouts aud cheers could be equal led only by a herd of a thousand wild, maddened Texas steers stampeded in a terrible storm." Then the oratorstopped a moment for breath, and went on with a vivid description of the chaplain's prayer. "In the midst of the wildest consternation," said Mrs. Rich, "a man pretending to be a preacher took the stand and assuming the attitude of pray er looked up to the ceiling; only he and God knows what he said, but it didn't take long to say it. Then the members and the red-baaged. fellows cursed and swore and the remainder of the day they were running about and shouting like wild men." Mrs. Rich then gave the court a startling recital of the monstrous indignities neaped upon her by the re publican members and sergeant-at-arms who were determined that she should leave the hall. They walked into the room where she was stationed, and with all kinds of guns and revolvers, and threats and curses they attempted to put her out, but she held her position like Barbara Fritchie of old, told them to shoot if they dared, or words to that effect, and never surrendered. This was the most thrilling and at the same time truly touching feature of the address and left no doubt in the minds of anyone that Mrs. Rich was the heroine of the day. She told how Brother Herriman, Brother S. M. Scott. Brother Burdick and other alliance friends had been rudely ejected from the room. She said Mrs. Johns was present when this was done and exclaimed, "that's right: kick the dirty dogs out ; they ought to have been kicked out long ago." Mrs. Rich's oration was the feature of the day. Her statements were so ex travagant and reckless and her manner of delivery so theatrical that even the members of the court had difficulty in concealing their smiles. When she had concluded her speech, Judge Doster asked the opposing counsel if they de sired to cross-examine her. "We would not mar that picture for the world," re plied General Caldwell. NOBMAL NOTES. Rev. Bracken was a visitor Thursday. Prof. Sherman, of Stockton, visited the Normal last Thursday. Mesdames Nixon, Hutzel, Meldrum and Peacock visited us this week. Prof. Rose is assisting in the exami nation of teachers. He goes to his home in Rosedale to-morrow. Col. Markham, president of the board of regents of Stockton academy, spent part of Thursday forenoon at the Insti tute. Prof. Crooks made a final adieu in a few well chosen remarks, followed by Prof. Rose. These final adieus will be repeated next year we hope, and every year for some time to come. Mrs. Hunt carried off the palm, viz : A scholarship in the Kansas Normal col lege of Ft. Scott not the State Normal for the best list of spelling twenty-five hard words given out oy Prof. Rose. The teachers of Trego county met at the Wa-Keeney school house Thursday afternoon, August JJ4th, tor the purpose of reorganizing the county association for the ensuing: vear. The officers elect ed were: President, County Superin tendent A. S. Peacock; vice president, Miss Carrie Sweet; secretary, Miss Marv O. Shepherd.

Reso lutions touching the work of the Normal just closed were read by the chairman of the committee and adopted by a vote of the students. The teachers also vot ed to join in a project for forming a dis trict teacher's association, comprising the counties lying west of Saline county along the Jme ot the Union Jb acihe, and to be known as the "Golden Belt Teach er's association." It was voted to adopt a constitution which had been sent by the Russell county teachers. Meeting adjourned to meet on call of executive committee. Eva Stott, secretary. At the Teacher's meeting Friday af ternoon the following resolutions were passed by the teachers assembled : Having spent a pleasant and profita ble month under the instruction of Profs. Rose and Crooks, we, the teachers of Trego county and students at the Normal institute, do heartily resolve : That to Prof. Rose is due our thanks and highest regards for his uniform kindness and his energetic and capable instruction during the month passed That Prof. Crooks has been with us so many times that he needs not our thanks except to say that he continues to hold the high place in our esteem that he has always held. That we most enthusiast ically commend Superintendent A. S. Peacock for his wise selection of in structors and could ask nothing better than that they come again. That we desire to thank the singers at our enter tainment and the people of Wa-Keeney for the hearty and earnest support they have given us ;also to Prof. O.E. Olin, of the Agricultural College, for his ex cellent address before the teachers and citizens. Finally to the instructors, our best wishes attend them.
