Chas. Buschow ! tMknS1n
State One of tlie Repablicans who is al most certain to be returned to the State Senate is Cliarles Buschow of Colby, representing the Thirty-ninth senatorial district. Senator Buschow's senatorial district includes thirteen counties in the northwest part of the state Gove, Trego, Ellis, Kook9, Gra ham, Sherman, Decatur, Rawlins, Thomas, Logan, Wallace, Sheridan and Cheyenne. Only one district in in the suite lias more counties the Tliirtv-eiglith. Senator F. Dumont Smith's district. Senator Buschow was one of the most active and valuable men in the session of 1903. He introduced twenty-one bills of interest to his constitu ents, most of which are now on the statute book. The most important of Senator Buschow's measures was the one making an appropriation for the western branch of the State Normal school on the Fort Hays military res ervation. For years the people of the northwest had been pleading for a branch of the normal. Every Legisla ture turned a de if ear to their appeal till Buschow took the matter up in 1903. ' -V Senator Buschow is a good mixer, and to know him is to like him. His associates in the Sen;ite, regardless of party affiliation, were his friends, as were most of the House members. In spite of tli: sentiment against Normal school blanches. Senator Bu schow introduced his Fort Hays bill. Legislators smiled and the newspa pers poked fun at the measure, but Bu schow smiled too, and poked fun back. He made a personal campaign lor the bill, going to every member of the Senate in turn, and having a heart to heart talk with him. The result was that his bill passed the Senate with practicially no opposition. He pur sued the same tactics in the House, making a seat to seat canvass. In time that body also passed the bill by a good majority. Every citizen of the northwest is proud of the Fort Hays branch of the State Normal. While the attendance is not limited to any particular sec tion, it is a fact that the majority of A matter to think and talk about by men who will cast their first votes this year is this: Men are living who cast their first vote for Freemont 48 years ago not one regrets it. Still more survive who cast their first vote for Lincoln 44 years ago and they are proud ol it. The same applies to those whose first vote was cast for Grant,; Harrison and McKmley. . No man who has cast a vote for Republi: can principles ever lived to regret it, while thousands who voted for Cleve land Democratic principles cursed themselves for so doing before his time expired- And while it may be true that Cleveland stands well with Democrats and would have been the strongest canidate they could have nominated he could not have come within sight of an election. Roose velt stands practically on the same ground that his illustrious predecess ors stood and has proven himself to be a worthy successor, and it is safe to predict that 40 or 50 years hence thousands of men will refer with pride to the fact than their first vote was cast for Roosevelt.

The new school building is one of the handsomest of the kind in the west. II igh class tea chers are employed, and the school is thoroughly equipped for the work in hand. The other bills introduced by Sena tor Buschow were of a local nature measures asked for by -the people of the various counties in the district. Senator Buschow was a member of four important committees in the last session ways and means, rail roads, irrigation and federal relations. He was chairman of the last named committee. As a worker in commit tee he was invaluable. He was al- i ways on hand when there was work to be done, and his excellent judg raent was an important factor in de- cididg the fate of bills. Senator Buschow is a Prussian by birth. He was born at Wilsnack, Sep tember 15, 1849. With his parents and three brothers he came to Amer ica in 1867. After a few years on a farm in Woodford county, Illinois, he went to Nebraska, in 1873, and set- tied on a homestead in Webster coun ty. During the fourteen years he re sided in Nebraska he filled several of ficial positions, including two terms as county treasurer and one term as secretary or the State Board of Rail road Commissioners. Senator Buschow has been a resi dent of Coloy, Thomas couty since 1887. He was largely interested in the organization of the Farmers and Merchants State Bank at Colby, He has been president of the bank ever since it was founded. He joined the Republican party when he came to America, and has voted the Republi can ticket regularly ever since He has been active in Sixth district poli tics ever since he settled in Thomas county. Penator Buschaw believes in the Roosevelt theory about large families. He has a wife, four sons and three daughters. He is an active member of th A. O. U. W. I The McLouth Times in a recent I special edition published a good real estate story. An Iowa couple on their way to Oklahoma to visit friends were passing. through the flooded dis trict a wet dreary day and the woman was expressing her disapproval of the state. A Kansas man . seated near them explained that the country would be all right by next spring. But the woman insisted the people were lacking in "enterprise. "Tou burn coal oil in the fine Iowa home you have described?" asked' the Kansan. "Oh. yes," she replied, "but we are go ing to put in a gas plant.,' "Well the coal oil you buy comes from Kansas." "You burn gasoline?"' "Well that comes from Kansas also." "Yofi have cemented cisterns?" "Yes, and and plenty of water in them." "Well the cement comes from Kansas, and the gypsum, from which your fine plastering was made came from here.1 "The salt you use comes from Kansas, and farther on today you will pass over the greatest salt deposits in the world." And the Kansan continued, telling them how the fresh meat they bought was from steers raised and killed in Kansas, then he told them about the white lead and zinc white used in the paint on their house, etc, until the husband exclaimed: "I guess lie's got us, Mary, Iowa can't do all that and Kansas is worth living in."
