REEDER, of Phillips County. POLITICAL CALENDAR. Republican State convention, at Wichita, Wednesday, May 28, 1902. The Iieloit Times says there are more dogs in Mitchell county than hogs. A Plainville firm has just finished putting up an elevator with a capaci ty of 50,000 bushels of wheat per day. The farmers are doing a good deal of wire pulling tins spring but it's barbed wire and there's no politics in it. Logan Republican. The liquor dispensed in Abilene and other suburbs of Salina is called "biograph whiskey." After the third drink one sees moving pictures. Sa lina Journal. Some months ago a Fairbury, Uebr., woman filed a breach of promise suit against Oscar C. Pusch, the cigar man, for $50,000. The case has been settled and Puscli paid $300 and costs of the suit to plaintiff. Things are about evenly divided af ter U. Did you ever see a brainv woman who was a beauty or a beauty who was brainy? Anna Carlsun. Now watcli the boys Tall into this trap. Minneapolis Messenger. "A Kansas editor wrote a nice little puff tor a milliner in which lie said lie was glad to see her "stocking up." Meeting the scribe on the street, she soaked him with iier parasol and threatened to tell his wife. The edi tor has never been able to find out what was wrong with his item. An ingenious ctiemist has made the claim that the average human being is wortli about $l8,3oo rrom the chem ical standpoint. His calculations are based on the fact that the human bodv contains three pounds and thir teen ounces of calcium; and calcium, just now, is worth 300 an ounce Hie nrst flies tiiat appear this spring ought to be summarily dealt with. Fly generations, it is said' by the specialist, follow each other at ten day intervals, with 120 fold in crease. Therefore one original pro genitor killed at the tieginuing of fly time is equal to several million killed later on. Kill a fly when you meet one. Wilson Echo. : Marion men are constantly in di mnnd. Why, out at the Pop conven tion in the Seventh district, last Tues day, an enthusiastic admirer of our fellow-townsman, Taylor Riddle, start ed a boom for him for Congress, al though he does not live in that dis trict. The Star says that Taylor grabbed his grip and skipped out to avoid the nomination. Marion Rec ord. The Populist congressional conven tion has been called to meet at Beloit on June 3. As this is the date of the Democratic convention at the same place we presume there is to be an effort to agree upon one man for con gress. -We are tired of this kind or dickering around for office, and men or parties that indulge in- it usually lose both the office and respect of all men who belong to a party because they believe in its principles. Ober lin Herald (Pop.) Bent Murdock rushes to the defense of the club women who went to Los Angeles. "One thing is certain," says he. 'These 8,000 more or lss moderately fair damsels den't ring up cocktails every morning before break fast; neither do they go down town and line up at the various hotel bars for morning drinks, as do the men who attend political conventions; they don't sit up and play poker half the night; don't get off into rooms and lush up and tell stories; don't go out and size up the town after midnight. They have earned an outing and have a right to go there and have a good time, even if they smash the bank ac counts or 8,000 old codgers at home who haven't much else to do but sit around and growl about it." Prof. Waldemar Lindgren of the United States Geological department at Washington arrived in Topeka last week on his way to Trego and Ellis counties, where he has been sent by the government to make an investi gation of the gold shales. Prof. Lind gren has been in the geological service about eighteen years and Is recognized as one of the government's most com petent geologists. The result or the examinations made by Prof. Fahrig and other scientists has attracted much attention at Washington and the officials in charge of the geological work desire to obtain definite infor mation regarding the character and value of Kansas shales. Prof. Lind gren has for several years given al most his entire time to the investiga tion of gold deposits and has worked in nearly every state in the West where gold is supposed to exist. He has been instructed to make a thor ough examination of the geological formation of the shale beds in Ellis and Trego- counties and to bring a number of samples to Washington to be tested. While in the city Lind gren had very little to say about his plans. He talked with a number of Topeka gentlemen who are interested in Kansas shales and assured them that be was entirely unprejudiced and would do his best to discover the real value of the shale. Prof. Lind gren says he knows nothing about the secret or patent p recesses of Prof. Fahrig or anyone else for extracting gold from Kansas shale, and that his, tests will be made largely along the line of standard processes for extract ing gold that have been in use l'or years.

Re alizing that a good market report is one of the most valuable features of a farm newspaper, the Capital prints twice a week a full report of all the markets of the world, including To peka, and the report is absolutely re liable. It prints all the news of the civiliz ed world fresh from the wires of the Associated Press, covering the field more thoroughly than any of the met ropolitan weeklies. But in the mat ter of Kaunas news, it has no competi tor, our large corps of special corres pondents enabling us to cover the field thoroughly. Outside of your own home paper, you can get more local news from the Capital than from any other paper published. Editorially it labors unceasingly for the State's moral and material wel fare. While strongly republican in politics, its editorials are fair and un prejudiced, and its news columns are open alike to the doings of all politi cal parties. It is printed twice a week for only $1.00 per year. Order it in connection with The World for only $1.50 Season of 1902. Black Jack will make the season at my farm 5 miles south and 2 miles east of Wa-Keeney. Jack is 3-y ears old; lias mealy nose, fine form, heavy bone; mother was a Mammoth Jen ny; sired by old "Joe Blackburn." Terms $8 to insure live colt. Frank will make the season at the same place except Saturdays when be will be in Wa-Keeney. Frank Is 5-years-old: was sired by "Old Bob;" dam was half Clyde and half Morgan. Terms $6 to insure live colt. Care will be taken to prevent acci dents but will not be responsible for any. KB. WEBB, Owner. I 1- JlJ C l i" 'a'lmiTwHI n I lili Good fresh beef at Baker's.
