Mr. Acre will return to Indiana but will move here later on. The editor of the ludeoeudent used what he thought was a new dodge for political ends last week when he en tered into a lengthy and somewhat painful article about the present cat tle quarantine, and in his article tried in a very slim way to nail the blame to Dr. Jones which is as redic- uious as any charge can be, for the doctor, although he runs a good many things at home, didn't pass the quar antine law, and in fact made a special trip to Topeka to confer with the Governor in behalf of the cattlemen of Trego county, so in whatever way the editor of Independent tries to twist the question in making a voter believe so rediculous a statement it can be refuted, and the onlr object he has for springing this question is to create political prejudice. Dr. Jones is no more responsible for the quarantine law than Mr. Thompson himself, and it shows that gentleman will stoop to means that an honest man would not. CASTOR I A For Infanta and Children.

He charges th World with robbinir the county.

We feel real sure that the new editor would rob the county if he had a chance. Good fresh beef at Baker's. OBITUARIES. We are twice called upon this week to chronicle the death of old time res idents of the east part of the county. Jacob Allman after a tea days' ill ness died at his home last Saturday of typhoid fever. We were acquainted with Mr. Allman and learned of bis death with regret.. He was a man of excellent character, upright ana hon est in all of his dealings. He was widely and favorably known in his neighborhood and many friends will miss him from their midst. He leaves a widow to whom we extend our sincere sympathy, also to his bro ther who resides near her. Last Friday morning Mrs. Sam Ridgway, of Ellis, died after a long siege of typhoid fever. Mrs. Kidgway was well known in that part of the country, also being quite well known here. She was a woman of beautiful christian charac ter and died triumphant in her faith. She was loved by all who khew her and her death is deeply mourned by a very wide circle of friends. She leaves a little daughter, her husband and other relatives to mourn her loss. . Sunday, the funeral services were conducted from the large tabernacle at Kidgway, bv Kev. uunckei or .Ells worth. The interment was at the Ogallah cemetry and it is said that it has been many years since so large a funeral has been held in that part of tne countrv.' The - world extends sympathy to the bereaved. An order was made this week giv ing the printing of the ballots to the world at the following rates per thou sand: General ha' lots at legal- rates. winch will be 813 or $14, township bal lots at Sb.arid amendment ballots So Folding and counting to be done without additional charge. The In dependent submitted the followiug bid: General ballots $11, township $7, amendment 5. and folding and count ing $1.50. The Independent bid was based on what the work could be done at Salina, the Independent not being equipped for the work. The World's price for one thousand of each kind is $24 or $25, and the Independent's price $24 50. The World did not submit a written bid. Independent. True, we did not submit a written bid. Two years ago, when the board was democratic, they left the bidding to be looked after by the county clef k, and be "gulled" us out of the job. This year the commissioners attended to the job themselves and we submit ted our bid in their presence. Our bid was: National, state and county tickets $13 per thousand; township $6; amendment $4; making a total of $23 per thousand. Why did not the Independent tell its readers the truth about the price of the ballot printing? The county clerk knew well, and as h supplies the Independent with cam paign thunder against the World, why did he not tell his "hireling" the truth in this matter? A man who will deliberately lie in a little thing will make mountains out of mole hill. Voters, look out for him! A Winfield paper pointsan interest ing moral with this simple tale about a merchant in that town: He is a good man. He has lived in Winfield many years, and has a large acquain tance in the city and through the country. His place of business was lo cated n the best business corner of the town. His store was well sup plied with fresh, salable goods, arti cles of everyday use and necessity. He is capable, honest and reliable. He should have done a thriving busi ness. .A few days ago he went into bankruptcy. Do you wonder why? He never advertised a line. Big Creek News. Lovely autumn weather. Wheat fields are getting green. A good many farmers are about done seeding. Swen Pearson is building an addi tion to bis house. William Paul from Ellis. is putting a tin roof on the addition.
