Established March 1, 1879. Official Paper of Trego County. Saturday, Apkil 10, 1897. The contempt case against superin tendent of insurance. Webb McNall, was heard before Judge Foster in the United States district court at Topeka, Monday. The case was taken under adTisement untill next Monday, when the judge will hand down an opinion. "Notwithstanding the determi nation on the part of several Euro pean powers to blockade the Grecian ports, Greece proceeded to celebrate anniversary of their declaration of the independence. This action on the part of that small nation should make all christian liberty loving people feel proud. Bradstreet reports 100,000 more men at work than at the time of elec tion. This means not less than 50, 000,000 more money paid out in wages a year than before McKinley's elec tion, and explains the advance in the price of hogs and cattle. Prosperity is coming and will be here in full flood after the Dingley tariff goes into oper ation. Capital. TEE KANSAS WHEAT CKOP. It is reported that Corbett's first wife was pleased to hear of his defeat, and is it a wonder when she had shared all his early hopes and ambi tions, had been a kind and loving wife, and then after fame came to the man she loved, to be compelled to give him up, as he desired to marry another woman he had taken a fancy to. Retribution was speedy and just in his case, and the heart blow which Fitz gave him was well deserved. We hear the agonizing cry for help coming up from all over the Mississip pi valley, and special petitions are being sent to the President urging him to provide assistance for the needy, and in consequence of the ur gent need of relief congress has been recommended to appropiate a large sum of money to be used for that pur pose, and it is hoped they will do so immediately. The March estimates of some writ- j ers on crop situations presented a dis couraging outlook for the wheat crop. These had, however, little effect upon the markets, which immediately re sumed a downward course. It is known to close observers that the March appearance of wheat above ground is often misinterpreted as to the crop prospect. A warm fall with only light rains, which moisten little below the surface, often produces a considerable growth of top witli roots extending to but slight depth. A cusual observer in early spring may regard this as a fair prospect, and such conditions are not infrequently reported as gi ving great promise. If the spring rains are such as to settle deep into the earth and there are no severe freezes and no very high winds if the season from late winter for ward is exactly favorable, such a pros pect may justify at harvest the op- mistic estimate often placed upon . But if the spring turns dry, heavy frosts occur after growth has com menced, or high winds are long con tinued, such prospect is sure todecline as the season advances. On the contrary, if the soil is well saturated during the fall, the roots go deep, even though the top be small. The plant may be killed to the sur face and recuperate. If there follow plenty of snow and a wet spring, the wheat crop surprises all superficial observers by its vitality and rapid re cuperation, just as in the other case t surprised them by its lack of vigor und inability to withstand vicissi tudes. Even if the spring be unfa vorable following a favorable fall arid winter, the wheat crop developes and yields beyond the estimatesof any but the closest observers. In most parts of Kansas the fall and winter conditions were such as to pro duce wheat plants of great vitality. The spring thus far has been favora ble, and it is to be expected that the reports will show constantly improvi ng conditions. Kansas Farmer. By constantly appealing to this country for recognition, Cuba has at last received some encouragement. The Senate passed a resolution last Monday requesting the President to compel Spain to carry on a civilized warfare, and to be honest and just in their dealings with General invent. It is generally supposed that when the President acts on this matter it will bring the war in Cuba to a speedy ter mination. An old stockman who has had con siderable experience with black leg offers, through the Omaha Stockman, the following remedy, which is pub lished for what it is worth, and as the cost is nominal it is worth a triai, at least: "Take ten pounds sulphur, six pounds copperas, three pounds salt petre and three pounds air-slacked lime, pulverize thoroughly. Put four quarts of salt in your salt Ikx and add one-half pint of the above mixture Mix thoroughly and permit the calves to eat as they desire. High prices lately have stimulated the rapid fat tening of young stock, and as blackleg is a disease brought about by overfeed ing young stock, many feeders will likely have more or less trouble in - forcing their young stock, and care should be taken to avoid this disease. An exchange notes a movement for a new division of the year which some proposed to have inaugurated January 1, 1900, according to the authority quoted, but 1901 would seem to be the better date, marking the beginning of the new century. ' The innovation is for the division of the year into thir teen instead of twelve months. The first twelve months would have 28 days each and the thirteenth would have 29, except in leap years, when it would have 30. Another advantage would be that whatever day of the week the new year came in on would be the 1st, 8th, loth and 22nd of each month for the whole year, and this would almost allow the doing away with calendars. There would thus be very great advantages in the adopt ion of the proposed new division, but it can hardly be brought about, upset ting as it would, the system of chro nology which has become so firmly established, and running counter, a it would, to strong prejudices. But there is nothing aside from these things to plead for the old system which is purely .artificial and arbi trary. Thirty years is a long time to fight so painful a trouble as piles, but Jacob Mitchell, of Unionville, Pa., struggled that long before he tried DeWitt's Witch Hazel Salve, which quickly and permanently cured him. It is equally effective in eczema and all skin affec tions. Jones & Gibson.
