THREE REASONS WHY
You can buy Dry Goods and Notions cheaper at MOORE'S CASH STORE Than Any Other Place in this Part of the Country. First UNDERBUY. We buy goods in all the leading markets in the United States. Get each article where we can buy it the cheapest, buy in moderate quantities and buy often, which enables us to pick up many a bargain and always have new up-to-date goods. Second LOWEST EXPENSES. One of the secrets of low prices is small expenses. The lower your expenses are the cheaper you can sell goods. We make our fight against expenses and we have driven them back to the last trench. A merchant whose expenses amount to 12 to 15 per cent of his sales is unable to sell goods at low prices. Third UNDER SELL. The small per cent necessary for us to add to make a living is smaller than most mer chants are compelled to add to pay the store expenses. Every artfcle in our store is marked the same per cent.

EWatch. this space N. W- K. V. A. Reunion. The 16th anniversary or the N. W. K. "V. A. is now among the things that we're. But the memory will long remain with tiiose who were fortu nate enough to attend it. Everything had oeen done to make it a success and notwithstanding the unfavorable weatner great numbers came from every direction and quite evidently enjoyed themselves. We warmed our nose and our toes at a fire of blazing railroad ties just as the boys of '61 to '65 used to do. Only they were made from the top of some unfortunate fence. A rousing camp n re was held in the tent where the veterans proved their ability to make speeches both amus ing and interesting. There was many a story of the trials and lots of fun the boys or long ago passed through. To their credit, be it said, the pleas ant memories have outlived those or pain and sorrow. We listened first to a fine address by Col. W. S. Tilton, rounder of the Western Kansas World, which was delivered in the court house. Then the Governor of Kansas deliv ered one of the finest speeches it has ever been our good fortune to listen to. It was full or pathos and patriot ism. Every word went straight to the heart or every true American cit izen. It was something we all could reel and understand. We thank him.' Long live Governor Stanley! Our sister county came in rull Torce to help us out. The music or our W-a-Keeney band was excellent. They have reached their own successful po sition through many difficulties and at the next encampment we hope to see them as well uniformed as their brother musicians of Hays. It was really handsome in the Hays band to come here free or charge even bearing part or their Own expenses. We hope in the near future to be able to return j the compliment. I learu they go to Denver to the carnival entering for the first prize. They are also prom ised escort to the queen. They have 36 members in the band, 18 of whom were here. They have five solos, and their success after having only 17 months 6f training proves the pro gress! veness of western Kansas. They are also well drilled and gave a fine exhibition of the same. There was also an excellent drum corps from Graham county. A Mr. Cook from Gove county gave an exhibition drill. . It was given with all the agility and enthusiasm or "sweet sixteen," notwithstanding his 71 years. .This was because he was a Kansan. Last year a Kansas veteran got out on the sidewalk and jigged a hair an hour to very fast time. They introduced him as only a boy because there was there an active well preserved man from Kansas 102 years old. A cadet Trom Gove county went through the sword drill to the great delight of all present. He is assigned to the new battleship Maine. Adjutant Joseph Escher was the busy man or the camp, but he seemed to be equal to the emergency. Commander Yetter was not lacking in proficiency. Now we are all looking forward to the next encampment at Goodland. There is a Northwestern Kansas Sons of Veterans formed to act in conjunction with the N. W. K. V. A. All S. or V. are requested to sign-the roll to be found at Mr. Etcher's. for Bed Rock Price. Ellis county veterans were taken unanimously into the association, Last Saturday was Old Settlers' day in Wa-Keeney. Quite a crowd of old timers were present. About noon a parade was given headed bv our band, followed by General Utility Dickey riding Verbeck & Lucus' colonel the oldest horse in town. He was dressed up and a shiney plug hat graced his gray head. A basket dinner was held in the court room after which the as sociation held a business meeting. Mr. Rich read a paper on the early settlement of Trego countv, which was very interesting. Colonel Tilton gave his old friends a very pleasant talk that was appreciated by all. Yon Enow What Ton Are Taking When you take Grove's Tasteless Chill Tonic because the formula is plainly printed on every bottle showing that it is symply Iron and Quinine in a tasteless form. No cure, No pay. Last Friday afternoon there was a ball game played In this city that has no equal in the state. 'Tis strange but nevertheless true. At 3:30 headed by the Wa-Keeney band, followed by the Hays band and Brush Creek drum corps, the Gove City and Wa-Keeney ball clubs gave a parade. They march ed to Receiver King's home and es corted the governor to the ball grounds. Upon arrival the governor reluctantly consented to umpire the game. It was a fine game and as we stated above it has no equal in the history or the state, we mean that when the governor made a close deci sion it, was law and gospel. Not even a murmur was heard rrom either side, nad the governor ravored Gove we couldn't blame him as at the last election Gove ravored him with about 120 majority while Trego went against him by a small majority. The score was s to 2 in favor or Gove. To Cure A Cold In Ono Day Take LaxitiveBromo Qui nine Tablets All druggist refund the money if it fails to cure, E. W. Grove's signature an each box. 25c.

Hank Davis, former well known resident of this city, is post master. Hank runs a general store in connection with the postoffice. .The burglars oroke out the glass ppnnel in the side door, the work of shoot ing the bolts was then an easy mat ter. Arter gaining an entrance the robbers proceeded to blow the safe in the postoffice department, piling mac intoshes upon and around it to deaden the noise, which it effectively did, for no one was awakened by the explosion. Hank lies directly across the street from the store and knew nothing of the robbery until Sunday morning, W. J. Lloyd awakened him, and told him to get up quick, as the safe had been blown open and the store robbed. An investigation showed that the safe door had been blown to pieces and scattered about-the' postoffice room, and the safe emptied of its con tents consisting of the rollowing amounts: Private money, $150; Postal funds, $80.14; Money Order fund, $2.34; together with notes amounting to $3, 000, and $700 in checks taken in during Saturday. The checks were with the cash and the notes in a large bill book. The bill book with contents and checks were found soon after daylight about fifty yards east of the Missouri Pacific depot somewhat damaged by the rain that fell during the uight. So' far nothing has been missed out of the store aside from a few cigars. With the recovery of the notes and checks Hank figures his loss at $300. From the Ellis Review-Headlight. W. A.

The shooting occurred in Connelly's joint where Leahy officiated as barkeeper. Pipes and a couple of his friends were in the joint and feeling the effects of the liquor they had been drinking, were noisy and quarrelsome. They finally offered Leahy a check to pay ror the liquor which he declined to cash. This angered Pipes and he drew a gun and became abusive, he was finally quieted and returned the pistol to his pocket. He finally broke out again, and according to the testi mony at the coroner's inquest, Lahy and Pipes both started to draw their guns, but the latter was the quicker, shooting Leahy five times killing him instantly. Leahy fell back of the bar amidst the dust and filth or the place where he lay until the arrival of the coroner. After the shooting Pipes walked off and started across the Baby pins.
