Everybody welcome. By order of social committee. John Gilmoreof Fredonia comes to the defense of ex-Congressman "Billy" Baker who is now a road overseer out in Lincoln county. He recalls that John Quincy Adams held the office of road overseer after the expiration of his presidential term. An Oklahoma exchange says a min ister there gives this definition of eternity: "If a little sparrow was to dip its bill in the Atlantic ocean and take one drop of water and then take one hop a day across the country and put that drop in the Pacific ocean and then hop back to the Atlantic, one hop a day, until the Atlantic was dry as a bone, it wouldn't be sun up in hell." For some time fakers have been at work in Kansas, selling to farmers what they call a "creamery refrigera tor" at two to three times what it is worth. They work the purchasers by promising to call every week and pur chase their butter at 25 cents a pound. They appear to be doing a good busi ness. Of course they never show up to get the butter. The farmer never sees them after they get hold of his note, which is promptly discounted at some bank. Capital. What will prove perhaps the most unique political convention ever held in Kansas is dated for September 13, in Gray county. It will be the regu lar Republican convention for the nomination of county officers. It will be composed of just fifteen delegates. Eight of these delegates can name the entire ticket of twelve officials. They could each take an office for himself and still have four offices over. The spectacle of fifteen delegates nominating twelve candidates is en tirely unprecedented in Kansas. K. C. Journal. An exchange says a Texas judge was robbed of a horse not long ago, and the thief, being apprehended, was brought before him for trial. The judge eyed the prisoner with deep satisfaction for a minute or so, and then delivered himself thus: "Owing to a personal prejudice, the court will not hear this case. It will be tried by the sheriff, who will find a verdict in accordance with the facts." "In the meantinie," added his honor im pressively, "the court will go outside and prepare a rope and pick out a good tree." Notice. ' Wa-Keeitey, Kans., September 2, 1902.

This year's ballot will be a beauti fully illustrated one. The emblem of the Populists is two-story frame hquse, standing in its own grounds with 11 the evidence of comfort at tached to It and has been officially designated the "Home." The Demo crats have chosen the "Rooster. whose fighting qualities eminently fit it for the position to which it will be elevated, and the Republicans the "Eagle" the emblem of their country and the noblest bird of them all, but not particularly remarkable for its genial disposition or friendly nature. It has this year its fighting clothes on and is prepared to grab everything in sight. The Prohibitionists have a "Rising Sun," which would seem to imply that by supporting their candi dates and helping to elect their ticket it will lead to the "Dawn" of better days, when all wickedness and misery shall be banished from the earth and virtue and happiness reign in their stead. Lastly the Socialists have adopted a representation of the "Globe," with hands clasped around which would imply that the adoption of their yiews means the fellowship of all mankind, and that they are broad enough to encircle- the whole world and be embraced by all the in habitants.

"During the recent high water in Lyon county," says William . Allen White, "A Democrat, a Populist and a Republican were? crossing the Neo sho down by the Newman farm in a leaky boat. It was agreed that each man should dump his heaviest bur den. The Republican dumoed his mortgage, the Populist dumped bis platform and then the Democrat pro ceeded to dump the Populist." No wonder you city fellows want to go to the country, said a prominent Iowa farmer recently. . We have our groceries and dry goods delivered at our door; we talk to our neighbors over a telephone, call up the doctor, order our butcher to send us five pounds of poiterhouse steak, all over the telephone.
