Marquand are spoken of as proba ble candidates on the populist ticket from the 3rd, and F. C. Swiggett and A. Spena are mentioned in connection with that office by the democrats and populists of the 1st district. An independent company is being organized for the purpose of extend ing the Central branch from Stockton westward to a point on the Union Pa cific between Bogue and Hill City. Of course that means a further extension southwest to intersect with the Mis souri Pacific either at Ransom or Utica by way of Wa-Keeney. . This is the same enterprise that has been frequently discussed and one or two surveys from Stockton to Wa-Keeney were made several years ago. A certain business man in this town qas invented a "snore diverter" and, if reports are true, he will surely be a rich man as soon as the merits of his machine are fully understood. The "snore diverter" is composed of a hood and a section of flexible pipe. When the husband, or wife, as the case may be, begins to snore, the hood is ' low ered over the head and the pipe con ducts the sound into the cellar. One woman in this town tried it on her husband and there hasn't been a rat in the cellar or on the premises since. Oh, for those halcyon days of yore in 1885 and 1886 when our citizens held railroad and street car meetings two or three times a week, when our hotels were so crowded that visitors to our city had to sleep in stores, offices and barns, when it was not un common for our real estate dealers to sell two or three town lots and a quar ter section before breakfast, when two or three job printing presses run ning day and night could not keep our real estate dealers supplied with suf ficient literature to properly advertise this country. No, we don't want to see it that way again, but we would like to see times brighten up a little and unless all signs fail we are on the eve of a revival. List of Jurwr3 for October Tern. The following is the list of jurors drawn for the October, 1895, term of the Trego county district court. Court convenes October 14th: S. E. Dubbs, Willcox township. Frank JIalbleib, Riverside township. William Iloobler, Willcox township. W. F. Cross, Glencoe township. D. Pershing, Wa-Keeney township. Theo. Haug, Franklin township. John S. Kelly, Wa-Keeney township. S. Pearson, Riverside township. ( W. D. Caskey, Ogallah township. C. M. Bell, Frankliri township. S. R. Horton, Ogallah township. C. F. Folkers, AVa-Keeney township. Ogallah Items. September 11, 1095. Quite a number of old time friends were gathered at the residence of Mr. and Mrs. Eli McCollum on the 10th inst the occasion being the 50th birthday of that estimable lady. A sumptuous repast and social chat were features that all seemed to enjoy. It would seem that our farmers are too busy at this time to be ripping up their clothes over politics. Many of the old stagers have realized by past experience that those whom you are trying now to boost into a com fortable position. the fates of poli tics may turn them against you two years hence. So keep cool and give us a good natured campaign. And now is launched our esteemed friend Seymore Coffey and Eli McCollum as contestants for the commissionership of Ogallah township for the unexpired term. AVithout wishing to indicate a preference here for either, a little lining up of the two candidates may interest some of our east-enders who may not have formed a personal ac quaintance with either of them. Mr. Coffey who has served a short time by appointment is quite unobtrusive and withal a very pleasant man to deal with who makes no pretentions be yond the scope of what he can under stand. Mr. Coffee will make a very acceptable officer if nominated and elected. Mr. McCollum has been a res ident of Trego county since 1878; is 52 years old, a consistent, conscien tious well informed man upon all county affairs. A man of decided convictions and we think a purpose before him always to do what is right by all no one will call into question his integrity or his ability to properly discharge his duties in the office to which he aspires if nominated and elected. Ketchum. The World's Wheat. The inhabitants of the entire civil ized world have become so much the patrons of one vast market, which market is supplied from all the world, that any partial view of wheat pro duction is likely to be misleading as, to the effect of production on prices; so that it is only by considering the crop of the entire world, and the prob able demand for bread-stuffs that any reliable conclusions can be reached. It has for some time been conceded that the 1895 wheat crop of the Unit ed States is much below that of recent years, and on the assumption that wheat-producing countries in other parts of the world would produce no more than their normal supplies, it has been expected that there would be some scarcity, and that higher prices would result. The assumption as to some foreign countries, has prob ably been erroneous, and the supplies of wheat which have been pouring out from Russia for several weeks indi cate a crop and a reserve there far be yond the estimates, and sufficiently above the crops of the last few years to fully make up the defficiency of the crop of the United States. The latest estimates place the wheat crop of Russia and Poland for 1895 at 400.000. 000 bushels, this being the only crop which equals that of the United States, which is placed at the same figure. It is not improbable that the United States have overestimated our importance in these markets on ac count of the effect of our great crops recently harvested upon the prices of wheat in the world's market. It is well, therefore, that we take a bird's eye view of the wheat crop of the world for this year. It may be sum marized as follows: For Europe, 1,482,900,000 bushels; Asia, 328,000,000 bushels; Africa, South America and Australasia, 163, 000,000 bushels; United States, 400, 000,000 bushels; Canada and Mexico, 67,000,000 bushels; or a total for North America of 467,000,000 bushels being about one-third of the total for Eu rope. The following table gives the estimates of the world's production of wheat for each of the last twelve years: Bushels. 1884. V: t . . . .2,302,000,000 1885. 2,158,000,000 1886 ,. .2,180,000,000 J 1887 2.365,000,000 1888 .2,229,000.000 1889.. t- 2.132,000,000 1890. : 2,270.000,000 1891 2.370.000:000 1S92 2,414,000,000 1893 2.227,000,000 1894 ' 2,589.000,000 1895 2,441,000,000 The decrease of this year's supply, as compared with last, amounts to 149,000,000 bushels, or 51 per cent. It has been expected that the time must be near at hand when the world's de mand for wheat, which increases with considerable rapidity and uniformity, must overtake the supplies; and inas much as the wheat areas of North America have passed their maximum of rapidity of increase, it is easily seen that the added areas of the future in this country are not likely to exceed, and probably riot likely to equal, the estimates of increase of population. It has been reasonably expected that the era of higher prices is near at hand. But Russia keeps her own counsel. Xobody knows how much she has produced, or how much she is capable of producing, or how much her wheat area is capable of en largement. Under such circumstances, exaggerated ideas of her importance are not improbable,. and yet the sup plies which she has for the market this year seem to have been underes timated. The price of wheat is less important to Kansas this year than heretofore, inasmuch as our pro duction has about equalled our de mands, and we have little to spare; but we are sowing a large area this fall, and hope to be greatly interested in the price next season. It now seems reasonably certain that those who have to buy bread during the present harvest year will get it at moderate; prices. Kansas Farmer. EXAMINATION ECHOES. The last examination was too easy. If the same grade of questions con tinue it will be advisable to raise the standard of third grade certificates. Thirtj-nine applicants wrote 'the late examination for teachers' certifi cates. Of these seven received first grade, eleven second grade and seven teen third grade certificates. Only four failed. . We have about seventy-five teachers in the county at the present time. Many are called to teach, or, at least, think they are, but only forty-eight will be chosen this 3rear. Some have" schools who ought to be scholars (pupils) while some of the best teachers will be idle. It should not be so. Trego county never had so many teachers at one time before, nor yet better ones, although the school pop ulation was at one time about 300 greater. Miss Effa Ilazen will teach the home school and abates, virtually do nates, $2 per month from her salary toward the purchase of a library for the pupils. If she doesn't get it that board has taken a long step toward perdition and everlasting pedagogical condemnation. Teachers, what are you doing to se cure the pupitsi reading circle books? Miss Eva Stott will teach the Will cox school. She has just returned from Hutchinson where she attended the Reno county teachers' normal and secured a first grade certificate at the August examination. There are thirteen first grade cer tificates in force in Trego county, but three or four of the holders of the same will not teach. There are twenty-three second grade teachers in our ranks. Fourth grade tickets are quite un popular. AVe issued but a few this time. The last examination questions were the simplest, easiest set we have had since January, 1893, but that will account, in part only, for the large percentage of successful applicants. Most of them had been preparing months in advance, and a majority, of them have had some . experience in teaching. Several already held un expired certificates, but wrote to raise their grades. Some of them succeeded and it is only justice to seven or eight other teachers to say they might have been equally fortunate had they tried the examination for first grades. , The number of mistakes in spelling, in the use of capitals and in the con struction of sentences, etc., which appear in every set of examination papers, is surprising, to say the least. Some of them are quits laughable, some of them are inexplicable and all are prejudicial to the success of the applicant who, if he realized the fact, would certainly exercise more care in the preparation of his manuscript. A few of them are published here, not for the purpose of ridicule, but that all may see how they appear in print. The authors of theso mistakes will be surprised if they recognize their own which they must do unaided by the examiner who can not remsmber and would not tell if he did.

Some applicants tell less on five pages of MS. than others do on two pages. It is a pleasure to read aitd mark the short paper of direct, con cise statements. Not so with the other. Some applicants, ignorant of the real answer, hope to deceive the examiner by much writing. It is use less. It is also true that some worthy teachers seem unable to be terse and explicit. A. S. P.

The Dakota Hot Springs. The Hot Springs of Arkansas have long been deservedly popular, for the treason that there has been ho other place that has filled the requirements of both a health and a pleasure resort. This state of affairs have changed, The Hot Springs of South Dakota have, in recent years, been thrown open to the people, and because of their delightful situation and great curative qualities, are becoming more popular every day. Situated as this resort is, in the famous Jilack Hills, in the midst of beautiful mountain scenery, possessing that balsamic at mosphere which is in itself health giv ing, with waters that are pronounced by experts equal if not superior to those of any other mineral springs in the world, it will soon outrank any other resort. The hotel accommodations are of the best hostelries with all the mod ern improvements and conveniences. The Evans hotel, built of pink sand stone, with steam heat, electric lights, and every room an outside one, is easily the best conducted house be tween Chicago and Denver. .'Fine bath houses are connected witli the best hotels. The rates of all the hotels are verv reasonable. The surrounding country is more than picturesque it is wonderful. The marvelous "Wind Cave;" the falls of Fall River: Battle Mountain, the old Indian Battle Ground: Deadwood and the gold fields; and the famous Bad Lands are all within driving distance. The mam moth plunge bath at the Springs is noted as being one of the largest nata toriums in the world. So healthful are the surroundings, and so many the conveniences of this "Carlbad of America," that it is rapidly becoming the "Mecca," not only for invalids. but for pleasure seekers as well.
