Ever since the first days or the so called Farmer's Alliance movement in Kansas there has been a growing dis position on tbe part or our people to look with suspicion upon all alleged reform movements with brass band accompainments. It is recalled that one Peffer broke tbe stillness of the prairie with bis stentorian calls for reform and succeeded in landing him self in tbe United States senate; that Mrs. Lease tilled the air with wails for tbe down-trodden and oppressed and put money In her purse; that Jer ry Simpson wept briny tears of coin parisou for .the poor and got rich; that Webb McNall held up the insur ance companies in the Interest of the "dear people and became notorious. They also recall the fact that all these noisy reformers Jived their allotted time and then passed into oblivion, and they expect a like fate to over take their successors and imitator!1. The latest, of these is a woman who has gained some notoriety as a smash er of joints. In due time she will join Peffer and Lease and Simpson and Mc Nall and the rest and become an un pleasant memory. Gay lord Herald. . Foley's Kidney Care USoerfs mod Ua&ia ctx&t LoMBiIIcr Feaad Dead Near a Ccametcrv im ladiaaa - Hazleton, Intl.. Feb. 14. -The body of J. C Loomiller was round near the cemetery here yesterday. Near by was found au empty revolver. Loomiller came from Oklahoma. lie was wealthy. '.He was blind aud wcut about with a long stick It was thought he was , murdered for the money lie had with him. ' H. E. Puette of Kansas City tells this story in connection with the death of J. C. Loomillerin the Star: "About ten years ago I was visiting my brother, who was agent for the Union Mutual Insurance company at Quincy, 111. Mr. Loomiller, who was a wealthy farmer at Liberty.. Intl., came to his office with his wife and wanted to place $K,000,each on his and his wife's life. " He wanted the policies drawn so that in case either died the other would get the money. My brother talked to me about the case and I ventured the opinion that one of tbe two intended to murder the other for the insurance. I pointed out that he had no interest in her as a risk and he was not a money getter, so that her interest iu him was little. 1 My brother wrote the insurance,, how ever. "A short time later Mr. Loomiller took out 310,000 more on each of them iu differeut companies. Sure enough, a mouth later, Loomiller came ruu uing into the town and said tie fouud his wife aud little niece murdered in his house. . When the neighbors got there they found the wife and girl literally hacked to pieces and a hatchet laid near them on the floor. Loomiller was indicted by the grand jury ror the murder. His hands and clothing were bloody, but he explain ed that was because lie had stumbled into the blood' when he went into the .house. He was nearly blind. The indictment rested for a lung time aud tue case never came to trial. He col lected the insurance and went-to Guthrie. He became very rich and had holdings in Illinois, Indi-ina, Oklahoma ana Autuouy, Kan. Loomiller was about years old, tall, with dark hair ana mustache The man who was found dead is cer tainly the same man 1 knew." Loomiller was a great chum of Abe Frakes and paid him several visits during his reign as chief mogul of the Ueme-Pop crowd in this county. In the fail of '7 Frakes ran for commis sioner and . he imported Loomiller from Indiana to help him do ins tlirty work. Loomiller haa tue gall to suiun up be ore God and Ins fellow man and swore that he was a resident or Trego county.

Don't curse the blamed trusts and then the minute you get ten dollars ahead send an order to Montgomery Ward, Sears, Roebuck, etc., and help support one of the biggest trusts in the country. Wnat iT you do get your goods a little cheaper that is what the trusts do. They crush competi tion by their contention. Every dol lar sent to mail order houses is just that much toward building up trusts, Montgomery Ward is not a philan thropist in any sense or the word. He is a shrewd" business man and by judi cious advertising has built up a trust that bids rair to wreck majority or small towns. If vou desire this send them your cash and get credit of your home merchants- and denounce the trusts. Let your actions speak for you and preach what you practice. Abilene Chronicle H. O. COOK.
