Referring to our playful article on "Windy Ben" the Oakley Graphic says we "did a good job skinning a reptile last week." We think the Graphic editor owes an apology to the reptile family. Ben. C. Rich, the "Eureka Ranch" statesman, was in Wa-Keeney last Monday. In conversation with a friend he remarked that his health was exceedingly good and ho never felt better in his life. We are glad to note that "Windy's" health is ex ceedingly good, but it is due to the fact that he exploded last week in the In dependent and dished up a column and a half of his surplus gall.

All last winter Mr. George A. Mills, of Lebanon, Conn., was badly afflicted with rheumatism. At times it was so severe that he could not stand up straight, but was drawn over on one side. "I tried different remedies without receiving relief," he says, "until about six months ago I bought a bottle of Chamberlain's Pain Balm. After using it for three days my rheumatism was gone and has not re-r turned since. For sale by Jones & Gibson. The lady patrons of the Ogallah Sabbath school are arranging for an Easter entertainment to be given at the Ogallah school house, Saturday evening, April 4th.

A good programme and a good time is anticipated. To one and all come and see us. We will try to make you happy. A canvass among the druggists of this place reveals the fact that Cham berlain's are the most popular propri etary medicines sold. Chamberlain's Cough Remedy, especially, is regarded as in the lead of all throat trouble remedies, and as such, is freely pre scribed by physicians. As a croup medicine, it is always unexcelled, and most families with young children keep a bottle handy for instant use. The editor of the Graphic has repeat edly known Chamberlain's Cough Remedy to do the work after all other medicines had failed. The Kimball, S. D., Graphic.

"Tennyson could take a piece of paper, write a poem on it and make it worth $65.000 that's genius. Van derbilt can write a few words on a sheet of paper and make it worth $5, 000,000 that's capital. The United States can take an ounce and a quar ter of gold and stamp upon it an Eagle Bird' and make it worth $20 that's money. A mechanic can take material worth $5 and make it into watch springs worth $1,000 that's skill. A merchant can take an article worth 75 cents and sell it for $1 that's business. A lady can purchase a hat for 75 cents, but she buys one that j costs $27 that's foolishness. A ditch digger works ten hours a day and handles several ton's of earth for $3 that's labor. The printer of this could write a check for $80,000,000 but it wouldn't be worth a dime that's rough." We hope some of our delin quent subscribers will pay us what is due that's honest.

By way of explanation, I wish to say that at a meeting of the State Silver league held in the city of To peka in 1894, I was appointed vice president for Trego county and reap pointed in 1895 After the union of all the silver organizations was effect ed at Chicago early in February, 1896, I recei ved notice that I had been listed as a vice-president for the coun ty, and the name adopted was the American Bimetallic union; also a request to hold meetings in different parts of the county, and to organize unions wherever they may be desired. I had the pleasure of attending the first annual meeting of the state league in 1894, and found its member ship composed of loyal and true silver men from all political parties. Ex Governor Thomas A. Osborn, a life long republican, was elected presi dent. Strong patriotic speeches were made by the president and others, in cluding John Davis, ex-Attorney Ives, and Congressman Brine, of Ne braska. I learn that many counties in this and other states are thoroughly or ganized. While I can hardly see how lean devote the necessary time, yet I feel that I can no longer neglect what seems a sacred and imperative duty. The battle of the standards is on, and will be fought to a finssh soon. Which shall win, the classes or the masses? The bond holders or the bond payers? I will therefore address meetings on the subject of "Bimetallism" as follows: In the court house of Wa-Keeney on the evening of March 24, 1896. At this meeting several short talks will be made by members of different po litical parties, and the opportunity will be given at all the meetings. On the evening of March 25th at the Cockrell & Baird school house in Adair. On the evening of March 26th at Ogallah. On March 28th at 1:30 p. ra. at Coll yer. On the evening of April 1st at the Perry school house in Glencoe. On the evening of April 2nd at the. Tunnell school house on the river in Riverside. " On the evening of April 3rd at the I. B. Gray school house in Willcox. N. B. Burge, vice-president of the A. B. U. of the Sixth district will ad dress a meeting in the court house in Wa-Keeney on the evening of April 7, 1896. All the evening meetings will be promptly at 7:30. Please extend notice to your neighbors. The ladies and young people are invited to be present. E. D. Wheeler, V. P. A. B. U. Trego County. Preliminary Examination Results. Grading papers is the greatest drudgery the teacher has to do. To read and grade 4,000 answers to eighty different questions in nine studies, written by sixty-four different pupils is no small task, but it has been ac complished at last. No attempt has been made to give each separate an swer an exact value but only to arrive at fair comparative results. The grades have been sent to teachers who can get the MSS by calling at the office. Pupils should compare papers with text books. Sixty-four pupils wrote all or a part of the examination. Of these twenty have passing grades and about that number additional will be recom mended to try the final examination, of which notice will be published next week. Respectfully, A. S. Peacock.
