2 TWENTY-EIGHTH YEAR. Yearly Subscription $1.00. WA-KEENEY KANS., MAR. 134,-19.06. H. S. Givler, Prop. NUMBER 4 i ii ii ii i a ti r m i a , 1 n OTIrai T I 18791906. v. . - Twenty-eight years ago the 2nd of this month, W. S. Tilton, now of Beatrice; Neb., founded the , Western Kansas World. Mr. Tilton ran the paper very successfully but finally sold out and moved away, and the management passed into other hands. On March 11, 1894, the present owner purchased a half interest from Cowick & Crooks, Mr. Cowick retiring. Several years afterward we purchased Mr. Crook's interest. On February 5 1835, the World was destroyed by fire, and all that remained to tell the story was the office key. On that eventful night $3, 000 went up in smoke. With 1,033 insurance it eaabled the proprietors to put in a new plant. A few years after our first disaster a wave of populism almost swallowed us, in fact, didn't leave much but our ears sticking out, unless it was the patches on our pants, but we made no kick, although some of whom we expected better things, deserted the old bark and left us when we needed them most. " The tide of human events is always bound to change and after some pretty hard struggles tiieKJiange came, for a great political reaction came and it sv.t us back onto the solid rocks, and prosperity again sli head us her smil- ing face. Our subscription list grew until today we have the'; largest subscription list since the boom days of '85 and '86. About six weeks ago the World installed a new press, a Country Campbell and a Foos gasoline engine. The Camp bell press is one of the strongest presses made, and we can now print 4 pages, 6 column at a time. The Foos engine is one of the best made and was purchased of A. B. Jones, who has sold a number of them. Our press room is large, roomy and light, and we believe among the best equipped press rooms in Western Kansas. We want to thank the staunch old friends of the - World who stood by it during the time of its adversity as well as its sunshine, and also to the many new ones who are enrolling on our list. We hope as the months pass to have one of the best papers for our patrons in the west. Republican County Convention.

HenkeL Last Saturday morning word . was received from Tupelo, Miss., convey ing the news of the death of D. H. Henkel. Mr. and Mrs. Henkel had gone to Mississippi in the early part of the winter with the hope of bene fitting Mr. Henkel's health and for some time it seemed that his condi tion was much improved, but death came rather suddenly as a result of some trouble in the nature of a clot of blood on the brain which had caus ed Mr. Henkels ill health for the past three years. Mr. Henkel was among the old timers of Trego county. He engaged successfully in the real estate business, and also served several terms in the capacity of Register of Deeds. He was engaged in farming at one time, but sold out and moved to Wa-Keeney, where he purchased the Sim's prop erty and fitted it up for a home where he resided until the time of his death. Mc. Henkel had a wide acquaintance throughout Trego county, and has many friends who will miss him and who will learn of his death with much regret. He was a man of excellent habits and by his pleasing and engag ing manners made many friends. On Monday evening the body was brought here for burial. He leaves a wife, one daughter and three sons to mourn his death. All of his children were preseut at-the funeral except his son Clarence, who was unable to come. On Wednesday afternoon the funersl services were held at the Presbyterian . church, and .conducted by Rev. J. C. Everett. Manv fine floral offerings were sentas tokens of esteem by friends. The interment tpok place in the Wa-Keeney ceme tery. The World and a large circle of friends extend sympathy to the be reaved family. - Sunday School Convention. Much interest in Sunday school work was shown last Sunday by the large number who braved the seyere storm to the court room where the first township conyentiftn for Wa Keeney township was held. Many persons present took part in the pro gram, giving helpful and inspiring talks. Good music added to the pro gram. The-committee on business reported Mrs. H. S. Givler retained as president and Mrs. I. T. Purcell as secretary for the ensuing year. We are especially glad to note the inter est this township is showing in the organized Sunday school work, and had the day been a bright one even Ogallah township could have looked on with a jealous eye.

Dukes has gone on an eastern trip. S. A. Orr and son were in town Sat urday.. Mrs. Fouts, who has been, very ill is better. Miss Fr"ances Glenn is the guest of Mrs. Wm. Lorimer. Bert Bamberg spent the first of the week in Wa-Keeney. The condition of the roads has been anything but pleasant. The show Monday drew a fair audi ence and was a good show. Supper was served at 'the Palace hotel after the skating contest. This is fine -weather for the gar dens planted those nice warm days. Mrs. Max Brown and Miss Rose Biehler drove in from Gove Saturday. Wm. Lorimer shipped some fine cornfed steers from this place Sun day." There need be no scarcity of meat Tiere when game of all kinds is so -plentiful.' Arthur Briggs makes many fancy moves on the rollers as he is a new beginner. Miss 2sellie Holmes and Miss Lola Orr, of Wa-Keeney, spent Saturday evening here. , Mrs. Geo. Morell has so far recover ed from her rscent illness as to be in town Saturday. Many from Wa-Keeney took in the contest here Saturday eve and they were all good skaters. Anyone having any corn cans please save them for Jesse Hickman, Jr., as he is contemplating canning "corned cats" soon. Carroll Kelly, Ree Clemons, Joe Gttib vand Gene Rathbone were the Wa-Keeneyites at the contest Satur dao evening. Livery business here booms. It would be a good idea for the livery men to add a few sleighs to their pleasure turnouts. As there's opposition in every branch of business here, Manager Razak need not be surprised if some one bunins up against him yet in the rink business. The skating contest held in Razak hall the 17th instant was a success in every way, and a nicer party never gathered here-than on that eve and all enjoyed themselves. The cash prizes were won by Carroll Kelly, of Wa-Keeney, and Mrs. John Glenn, of Collyer. The judges were Wm. Lori mer, J. Deitrich and R. -4. Tague. They had a difficult task before them to decide the contest as' some very fine skaters took part. The decision, however, was satisfactory to all, and Manager Razak cleared a good profit over expenses. - Big Creek. John Glass was over in Riverside last week buying bay. Gus. Wahlborg was up on Big creek last week looking for feed for his cat tie. It looks as if the township trustees are giving the residents of the county a little taffy this year. . A continual snow sVirm nearly all through March. The snow will do the wheat lots of good. Stock is eating lots of feed these days, owing to the cold weather. A young man from Big creek went to town a few days a'go expecting to go home with his sister, but they played him the left bower and he had to 'phone home for a rig to get through the mud. A young gent from the south side passed through this neck of the wood9 a few days ago claiming to be buying calves, but we think from his conver sation he was very anxious to have some young lady make a mash on him A certain young man of the East End, on his way home from Ellis last Saturday caught a duck and took her home with him and kept her a poor prisoner nntil Monday morning, when he gave her her liberty and she .skip Tied the ranch He has-been vreantig mourning ever since. N We know a young gent who rung up his best girl one night not very long ago and when he went to call her '. ed and stuttered so that he could not speak her name intelligently and she asked him bis name and he stuck worse than ever until finally he stam mered out "guess I've got you gissin' now," and then central shut him off. A young man from Riverside while on the way to see his best girl last week stopped en "route for dinner with a friend of his. and while there went to shoot a bird and when the gun fired the recoil threw the shell back and it struck him in the fore head cutting through the skin, but he went on and the last we heard of him he and his girl "were making about 2 of a mile an hour in bis buggy. , f Voda.

On Friday afternoon of last week the editor of this paper, by request of Department Commander Coney, went to Wa-Keeney, west on the Union Pacific, to Install the officers of the G. A. R. Post there, and he was ac companied by his daughter to parti cipate at a G.A. R. camp fire. They were met at the train by W. C. Olson, the harness man, and taken to his SDlendid home. Mrs. Olson is an ele gant woman and the entertainment received from them was certainly agreeable. " I The next inortung the ground was covered with snow and a blizzard pre vailed. Naturally it was thought "the jig was up," but not so, quoth Mr." Olson, who was master of cere monies. He said truly. In the after noon a fine meeting was held and the Post officers were installed. , At night at the court house came the "camp-fire And that is a great structure beautiful stone, three stories high, about 80x180 feet and finished in fine style-Xotwithstanding' the severe cold and wind .more than a hundred x'ople came to the court houe and a cordial greeting was ex tended the Saiiua visitors. A special feature of the meeting was the music furnished by Wa-Keeney ladies and gentlemen piano and ocal solos and duets and violin playing. There ws aplenty of it. It would not have been better had it been brought from Salina or Topeka. The talkiog'was applauded. The five recitations given by the Salina young lady were enthus iastically received. There was short talks by two comrades. Then came the supper, which was excellent. It was a fine meeting' and was so voted by all present. It was near midnight when the people returned to their homes. .We were assured that had the day been a pleasant one many people would have, oome from the country and the court house would have been crowded. ' Wa-Keeneyjs a good town and well represented with business. It is some thing less than 1,000 in population. The class of buildings is good. Mr. Verbeck, late of Salina", is there in trade. v The people appeared to be prosperous and eonteuted. The town has two good newspapers and the editor of one of them, the World, is postmaster. . We were iielighted to receive greet ings from other old soldiers, among whom were Mr. Y-etter, father of the young man-formerly employed by the Journal of this city, and Mr. Johnson, both of Ogallah, S miles east of Wa Keeney, and Mr. Evans and others ot Wa-Keeney. . ; ! The ladies of Wa-Keeney entered into he unction of the camp-fire, and to them is duo a great part of the credit for its gratifying success. Sa lina Sun. Kansas City Markets. Stock Yards, Kansas City, Mo., Tues day, March 20th, 1906. Cattle receipts are 5000 less first two days this week. than same days last week. The - market improved after last Tuesday, recovering about all the loss of first two days last week, but trade is slow this week, without much change in price. Cows and heifers are an exception, and sell strong all the time, account of scar city. Stockers and feeders are still."" suffering from adverse weather con dition. The last two weeks have been the hardest o the winter, oii stock cattle particularly, as besides 'the severe weather and naturally weaken- . ed conditition of-manv cattle, the question of feed has -suddenly assum ed great importance. In Western Kansss feed is scarce, and in many localities roughness is unusually high. The supply of cattle today is 10,000 .head, a reduction of 3,000 from last Tuesday. Heavy steers are barely steady, light weight steers are in de mand, cows heifers and bulls strong aud active, veals shade higher, stock ers and feeders dull. Anyone who contemplates purchasing thin cattle, and can handle them, would make a hit in buying now; when the weather settles prices will jump up quickly. Two loads of 1570 pound steers sold at $5.70 today, many sales at $5.25 and upwards, bulk $4.70 to $5.40. One shipment sold at $5.25 today out of same lot that sold at 85.25 here last Tuesday: others from same lot sold at Chicago yesterday at $5.40. Choice heifers bring up to $5.25, bulk of good heifers $4.40 to $4.85, cows up to $4.00, bulk $3.25 to $4-.25, bulls $3.25 to $4 15, veals $5.50 to $7.00, stockers and feed ers $2.85 to $4.60. The hog market has been unusually slow for two weeks, as packers are using every effort and argument to secure lower prices. Market makes little net change from week to week, . and victories on either side are short lived. 'Supply is running moderate.' mainly because -of bad shipping weather, only 43,000 last week, 11,000 today. Market is up 2i to 5 "cents to-, day, top $6,271, bulk of sales $6.10 to $6.25. Weighs below 200 pounds'bring up to $6.20, pigs around $5.25. . j Sheep and lambs are 10 to 20 lower 'than a week ago, with lambs still j leading in the downward marchl Re ceipts last week 6Z.WM, a railing oil or 10,000 from recent weeks, and supply this week is - moderate, 7000 today, market steady. Lambs range from $5.90 to $6.45 today, yearlings and wethers $5.40 to. $5.85, ewes '$4.50 to. $5.15. With continued moderate re ceipts the situation may firm up a little, but no great things are expect ed in the mutton market for the " present ' J. A. Rick art, L. S. Correspondent. Dr. A. Wooclworth, dentist, will be in YVa-Kee- ;ney -Uurcn uotn, remaining 1 till March 31.
