I hereby announce myself as a candi date for the office of trustee of Wa-Kee Tiey township subject to the decision of "VVa-Keeney township republican ton vention. W. R.

There is a great difference between the estimated value of a cow March 1 when the trustee comes around, and a few days latter when she is run over by at railroad train. Emporia Gazette. Thomas B. Reed was re-elected by a majority of about 10,000 from Maine last week and will be the next speaker of the house of representatives unless he is called up higher before that time. ihe tasciiiating attraction ot apron tring drewr our friend of the Tregove Countycrat to Gove City last week but as he returned with a bland smile on his Pefferian physiognomy we "phrophesy" it's all right. Oregon. Alabama, Vermont and Maine are the states that have had elec tions so far this year. Populism has got a black eye in each, and Kansas and Colorado will knock out a couple more of the optics of the argus eyed party. Airs, leasesaid less than two years ago that Lewelling and his gang gave $500 for a false affidavit showing her to be a harlot. Now Mrs. Lease is sup porting the Lewelling gang. Just let the women vote and then politics will be purified. A great deal was said a vear or so ago about the organization of the popu list party in Vermont and its bright prospects. The election of last week blighted all those bright prospects, how ever, the populist electing only one member out of the 2G0 comprising the state legislature. Congressman Hudson gives as his reason for declining the populist nomi nation that his salary is not sufficient to pay his expenses. If 5,000 and the per quisites including a clerkship for his daughter won't keep a populist of plain tastes in good financial fix it would look aa if his boodle expense must be very high. Breckinridge was defeated for re nomination to Congress from the Ash Ian ddistrict of Kentucky. Decency has been vindicated once. The women did part of it. Virtue and honor will be greatly promoted by the retirement of the noted "silver tongued orator" and men in high station will learn that morality as well as brilliancy are neces sary to a successful career when repre senting the average American constitu ency. When you talk about abuse and vil lifying language from the republican press you should not overlook the pro fanity, vulgarity and downright obscen ity of the Topeka Advocate and Ottawa Journal, the t wo leading populist organs of the state. They are indecent and un fit for the family table, containing arti cle after article so profane and vulgar that no respectable republican has type strong enough to endure an edition con taining quotations from them. T. Jeff. Hudson, the Calamity con gressman of the Third district, is about losing his grip. It is reported that he declared his determination to withdraw, to avoid being defeated, because the democrats refuse to go in and help to elect him again. He is the biggist shy ster of all the delegation, and has shy stered himself out. From present ap pearances, which are "still a gittin'," when the roll of Calamity congressmen in Kansas is called in the net Con gress, echo will answer to their names. Troy Chief. Populist papers which are lamenting the necessity of a distasteful campaign on the part of the republican press of Kansas should bear in mind that the populist administration is responsible for this necessity. The vilest testimony comes from the populists themselves. The utterances of Mrs. Lease, Cyrus Corning. Senator Taylor, Percy Daniels, Justice Allen, et al. all of whom are rec ognized among the high and mighty counsellors of the populist party, have been more scathing than almost any of the charges brought by the republicans. The republican press has quoted these parties quite frequently, it is true, and then the populist press denounces them as republican lies. One thing is certain : If the Lewel ling administration is being lied alxmt, it ia populists and not republicans who are doing the lying. It was Mrs. Lease and Lawyer Smith and Senator Taylor, all Populists, who said that the adminis tration was boodling the dives and lot teries of Kansas City. (And a jury agreed that w hat Lawyer Smith said was true.) It was a populist who brought the charges against Warden Chase, and against the superintendent of the in sane asylum, and the superintendent of the deaf and dumb asylum and the im becile asylum, and against the police commissioners. In short every serious charge against the Lewelling adminis tration rests upon the voluntary testi mony of populists. Is it likely that these people would lie about officials of their own party?

(It won't hurt him. His "gall" would disrest a toad.") State Superintendent of Public In- truction, H. N. Gaines, has decided that teachers -who are employed when they have no certificate in force at the time the contract is made cannot collect pay for their services. For years in this state both teachers and school boards have understood this and the making of contracts was considered illegal unless the teacher held a certificate. During the last seven years there is no record of any teacher being employed and paid who at the time did not hold a certifi cate. The decision is not reallv that of H. N. Gaines, but was made by George W. Winans during his term of office in the following language: "A district board has no legal right to employ a teacher not legally qualified; that is, one who does not hold a legal certifi cate."

"I took three boxes of Ayer's Pills and was entirely cured. Since that time, I always keep them in the house." They are easy to take. Topeka has dedicated three new churches and a woolen mill this season and is preparing to perform a similar service for a new court house and a high school building. Ayer's Sarsaparilla is not a secret preparation. Any physician may have the formula on application. , The secret of its success as a medicine lies in its extraordinaty power to cleanse the blood of impurities and cure the most deep-seated cases, of blood disease.

Let me be buried in such a way that I can go easily back to nature and to vegetation. , There is no way of cheating nature of my body for use again. Do not try it." John A. Anderson's Dance. The following story concerning the late John A. Anderson and Wild Bill was related Sunday in the Kansas City- limes, purporting to come from Daniel Moran, one of Custer's scouts. It may or may not be true, but it is quite a story all the same : "I recall an adventure that Wild Bill had with the late John A. Anderson in Junction City, Kansas. "John Anderson was only a Presby terian minister then. That was years before he represented the Sunflower stato in Congress. His church then stood as it now stands, on the west side of the public square. Anderson was a minister to tiie poor as well as everyone else and was very popular. Nearly everybedy went armed in those days. The Indians made several attacks "on the railroad hands and killed a number of them at different times, so that they went armed with needle guns. One day there was a construction train of from 300 to 400 men in Junction City. It was pay day. Wild Bill was there 'that day. Whisky ran like water. It seemed as though everybody was drinking. There were innumerable brawls and street fights, but nothing serious until Bill and some of his old friends mounted their ponies and started oaf to 'do' the town, lneir revolvers gleamed in the sun and occasionally a volley of shots would ring out as their horses plunged through the streets. Rev. John A. An derson was holding church services that dav. A lure crowd filled the church building. "Wild Bill and his party finally grew weary o racing their horses through the streets, and finally Bill reigned in his horse bt-fore the church. The door stood opf n and the pastor was in the pulpit. Bill urged his horse toward the doorway. Obedient to its rider's com mand, tlie little animal entered the church. Wild Bill sat in his saddle and survey-ed the minister and the congrega tion. The preacher paused in his dis course and gazing unflinchingly at the bold intruder, ordered him to leave the church. Bill answered the preacher with an oath and asked him what he was doing. 1 m preaching the gospel, said Rev. Anderson. " 'No you ain't preaching,' said Bill, drawing back his revolver. You're danc ing. That's what you are doing. Now 'dance and dance lively,' commanded Bill. "The preacher remonstrated with Bill. Ladies crept under the seats and the male part of the congregation sat as though paralyzed. There was nothing else for the preacher to do but dance. It was dance or die. So he danced. A courier hurried to the train, where a party oi scouts were collected, and re ported Wild Bills actions. There was a Mexican scout who could throw a lasso with wonderful precision. We took him and hurried to the church. Bill vas still seated on his horse laugh ing in drunken glee at the preacher, who was dancing for dear lifr. The Mexican crept up to the door. He paused, twirl ed the lasso above Ins head. "There was a swish through the air and the loop fell over Bill's head; it dropped below his shoulders and the Mexican gave it a quick jerk. The rope drew tight about Bill's body, it pinned his arms to his side. A strong pull un seated Bill and we hauled him out of the church. You can imagine that the preacher felt relieved. Services were immediately dismissed. It was a nar row escape for lie v. Anderson, for Bill would surely have killed him had he not complied with his commands. AVe took Bill to the train and kept him un til he sobered up. Then he went to Rev. Anderson and apologized. The episode was hushed up as much as pos sible at the time. This was the first act that helped to destroy Wild Bill's power on the frontier, for John A. Anderson was a very popular man, and of course the story of the affair spread far and near. It was not long alter this that Wild Bill pulled out for pastures new." BAR DOCKET. The following is the list of cases to be be tried at the September term of Trego county- district court.

Speaking of the studied simplicity of this great reform movement, the editor of the Wa-Keeney Omni jack works around his office in his bare feet. Old man Baker had a "grand rally" advertised at Smith Center for last Wed nesday. Only four men came into the hall, the chairman stated that the slim audience was probably owing to court j iemg in session, and Baker excused iiimseiljirom speaking, l.ven the pops are so bored with sugar-heel Bill that they prefer the intellectual enjoyment oi a hog trespass case to his dreary drone. i-eopie may scosi at leautv m men, but it sometime scores a triumphant victory.

In their trouble the v turned to Ed Ilea and Char- he Gibson, who shaved off their mous taehes, donned female apparel, and went right through with the play so well that even such an old anchorite as Steven Jackson Osborn nudged nis neighbor and wan ts.nl to know who those sweet young things were.
