The Old Settlers' of Trego county to the number of about 200 gathered rt t -e court house last Saturday af te. noon and perfected a permanent organization by electing A. P.

The Wa-Keeney band discoursed ex cellent music and the glee club sang seveial good selections. A number joined the association and before next reunion the list ought to reach the 400 mpik. All had a pleasant time. May or Wilson gave the association a wel come talk, and Hudson Harlan was mrde historian, and told some of his experiences since he came to Trego that were very interesting. On Tuesday the postoffice changed bands, C. N. Gibson who had resigned some time ago, and as we were adver tised to take his place assumed charge on that day. The office has always been one of the best for the size of the town in Western Kansas. The furniture and fixtures and the make up of the office in general would do credit to a much larger town. The retiring postmaster has held the of fice for over three vears and could have held it longer had he so desired, but business interests at his ranch on B'3 Creek were of more importance to him than to Uncle Sam. Mr. and Mrs. Gibson have made good postmasters and we wish them success in their new home. We don't intend to make any promises to the public. The post- olice will be run on strictly business principles. We shall try to treat all cordially and alike and work for the best interests of the people in gener al. Miss Carrie Mumert, who has been assistant postmistress for a long time, will have charge of the office in our absence. The patrons all know her to be one of the best clerks who has ever held a position in the office. Miss Carrie is obliging, affable and a splendid clerk. is, by no means, the dreadful disease it is thought to be in the beginninsr. It can always be stopped in the beginning.

Two gentleman arrived in our city last Saturday and began business in the old Monroe and Ilenkel building on the corner and many were the in quiries of what kind of business was going on in that building one fellow said that they were patent medicine men making a catarrh remedy that would cure all. Upon investigation we found two pleasant gentlemen en gaged in assaying the products of our gold fields. An expert assayer is mak ing; test of shale from Ellis county to Gove, and we were unable to learn how much gold our shale beds contain Before they quit the experiment a thorough investigation will be made as the men making the tests are thorough and competent in their line. We hope they will find large quantities of the yellow metal. If they do everybody will think, that Trego is the Klondike of Kansas. Abraham Frakes' Democratic friends are telling a good one on him: At the supper table at the American House Tuesday evening he tried to get cute and just like his Eureka, Hans., remarks, sound just like him He told a friend who joined him at supper that he was from Kentucky where they prided themselves on fine horses, pretty women and the finest quality of whisky. A lady was seated at one of the tables and as everybody knows Frakes so well that the aver age reader would construe that these remarks were intended for the lady to hear. The lady at the table was Miss Minnie Johnson, of Pittsburg, Kans., a temperance lecturer of state repu tation. Miss Johnson could, if she would tell this story to her audiences as she travels over the state, and fair ly meke Abraham's hair or "whisk- eis" stand on end. She could make thousands of votes against Abraham, as the story was uncalled for and just shows what an uncouth old bag of of wind Frakes is. The Deniopop committeemen were in sore straits last Saturday occasion ed by the withdrawal of their candi date for Probate Judge John Stew art. They did a good deal of skirm ishing all day and finally one long headed Pop suggested that if we can't get one of our number to take the of fice let's give it to an old soldier Re publican maybe he will strengthen ou.- ticket as the itepuoiicans have two old soldiers on their ticket, and it will give us the same number. Squire Groft was hunted up and was given to understand that if he accepted they would work hard for his elec tion. He accepted the nomination. Squire Groft has been police judge, justice of the peace and coroner of Tveso for a number of years yes; a goodly number, and has always been elected as a Republican and we are of j the opinion that Uncle Joshua will support the republican ticket this year except the county ticket. Another scheme was tried by the" Demopop committeemen. They spent most of the afternoon chasing Republicans, trying to get one of them to accept the nomination of trustee against Chas. Folkers. Last year they left this office blank, but some of Folkers enemies this year said, you will have to put a man up or we'll vote the straight Republican ticket. They of fered the trusteeship to a close friend of ours who said thev insisted on him taking it. He said the gall of those fellows would sour the stomach of a jackass. Our Candidates. - Xever before in the history of Tre go county have the Republicans plac ed before the voters a better set of candidates than this year. Every man on the ticket is worthy of the position to which he aspires. Thev are exceptionally well qualified for the position for which they were nom inated. Each candidate is identified, and has been for years, with the best interests of Trego county. A better ticket has never been nominated by any party in the county. FOR REPRESENTATIVE C. C. Yetter, of Ogallah. heads the ticket. Mr. Yetter was chosen strict ly on his merits and true manhood Being one of the earliest settlers of the county he needs no introduction to oui people.- Mr Yetter and family came to Trego county in the spring of 1878 and settled at Ogallah, where he homesteaded land and has lived ever since. He has always followed farm ing and stock-raising, besides always keeping open house for his many friends and to the public at Ogallah, and every one who had the pleasure of stopping at his house, speak of him as mine host. Mr. letter has never asked for office in his long years resi deuce in Trego until this year, and it was his friends who insisted on him making the race as they were of the opinion that no better man could be found in the county for the position. Mr. Yetter is a cool,, collected man auywhere and everywhere; a man of excellent judgment, honest, generous, always Triendly and sociable, a man bom his fellow men have full confi dence in. While not a public speak er, he can make an intelligent and stiai;rhtforward talk, right to the point. If elected as a member of the legislature, as he surely will be, the people can rest assured he will always be fouud working for the best inter ests of Tre.o county and her people will never have cause to regret h election to the responsible office of representative. Mr. Yetter is au old soldier having served three or four years in the war of the Rebellion. He was the unanimous choice of the Re publicans. FOR DISTRICT CLERK II. D. He id was the unanimous choice of the part3'. He came to Trego about 15 years ago where he engaged iu farming and stock-raising in Collver township. He is well qualified for the office he seeks, and in his home township and wherever known he is held in high esteem by his fellowman. FOR COUNTY ATTORNEY John A. Kelson needs no introduction to our people as he is well-known all over the county and as -he was the unanimous choice of the Republicans he suould receive the united support of the party. Mr. Kelson is an hon est and upright man and no one can say that he has not discharged the du ties of his office without fear or favor. FOR PROBATE JUDGE. M. W. Clift asks for re-election as Probate Judge and should receive it. Dui ing his term he has not missed a day. If there was any business to transact Minor was always on hand to t ansae t it. His books are models of neatness and correctness one of the t ie most essential things that goes to make a good official. This office is one of the most particular positions to fill correctly among the county of fices. Minor lias the requisite quali fications for said office and he should be given another term. He also is an b'd settler. FOR COUNTY SUPERINTENDENT. Hudson Harlan, the Republican candidate for Superintendent is an other old settler. He came to Trego county 15 years ago. Has taught school in many districts of the county, and has oeen engaged in school work for nearly 20 years. He has held the of- rce nearly two years and has given general satisfaction. He has a first grade certificate and has passed a high grade in his examination for a state certificate, and will receive same shortly. Mr. Harlan is the kind of a man we need at the head of the schools of the county. He is in touch with teachers and also school boards, mak ing things work pleasantly and profit ably to the school and he should be re elected and no doubt will, as he has made an excellent officer. FOR COMMISSIONER. W. E. Tilton, of north of town, was nominated for Commissioner of the 2nd district. The convention selected a good man for this important office. Mr. Tilton is an old resident, is a lead ing and prominent man among bis neighbors, and has the three qualifi cations which are essential in that of fice: good education, honesty and ex cellent business judgment. Mr. Tilton is a large land owner and heavy tax payer. Mr and Mrs. H. Harlan are the proud parents of another boy born Tuesday October 2. Mr. and Mrs. Blair and two sons, of G.and Junction, Colo., visited with A. H. Blair and family the latter part of last week. PROFESSIONAL CARDS. A. B. JONES. PHYSICIAN AND SURGEON. WA-KEEKET. - K VV.

Frakes' Break. Mr. Frakes, the fusion nominee for secretary of state, has issued a card to the voters of Kansas, asking them to take notice that his first name is Abram. not Abraham. "When peo ple see my name spelka Abraham," says Frakes, '-they form the opinion that I am a Sheeny and it works hard ships on my canvass. I am no Jew and my name is not Abraham. It is phlin Abram." Yet Abram is the better Hebrew word of the two, and Frakes must be ignorant of his family history or he would know it. Ab am means "th father of heights," and it was the or iginal name of the progenitor of the Jewsuntil God changed it to Abra ham, meaning "the fatherof the mul titude." However, Frakes is an old bachelor and presumably the father of nothing not even of a respectable boom for office. Kansas Topics in Kansas City Journal. First published October ft, 1900. Notice.
