McReynolda of this city, who has charge of the or ganization of this work in the twenty- two counties of the Sixth congression al district. The school children of Kansas City now have over $60,000 on deposit in the banks of 'that city, How to institute school sayings banks Teach the children thrift and self re sponsibility, and we have a" nation of temperate and thoughtful people. First teach a child self denial, tem perance; then teach a child to help himself by forming lrabits of saving money that is given him for candy and things that are giyen him that will injure bis health and ability as a scholar. It is not the desire of the promoters of this system that the children should become pensioners on the bounty of the parent, but that they should be stimulated to indus try and deposit the product of their own labor or self denial, that the pen nies are to be planted in the banks as the seeds of future fortune and good habits, instead as is often the case in some cigarette or candy shop where they can produce only the extrava gance of taste, which ripens into in temperance and poverty. On the mornihg of the collection, say Mod day, the roll is called by the teacher. The child responses "Yes, five cents' or whatever the amount may be. The teacher marks the amount on the school savings bank card opposite the proper date and name, places also the proper date and name, places also the sum on her roll book, and . gives the card back to the child. The card is always in possession of the pupjl as a memorandum and receipt, and if the child has no deposit he KinlDlv re sponds, present. The first collection is deposited in the bank in the name of the teacher or principal who re ceives in turn a bank bock which shows the amount deposited by all teachers as a general school fund. A deposit list copied from the teachers roll book must be sent to the bank each month so that the account of each pupil may be individualized. When a child has deposited a dollar he receives a bank book and becomes through the school a regular depositor n the savings bank. When his de posit reaches $3 or $5, as the bank may elect, it draws interest at three per cent or more. Now I hope each teacher and parent may become in terested in the work and we may see every school in Kansas with savings banks established iu it. Yours very truly, Mrs. J. W. McReynolds, dis trict superintendent school saving banks, Sixth district; Lincoln, Kan. Church Notice. Religious services on Sunday, April 1st in the churches: Sunday school commencing at 9:45 m.

Swiireett ltl 1-2 blk 33, Wa-Keeney 10 Old Bill Shiftless says that while he is a Republican he is not going to be bound down by party ties any more, ne is going to vote for the man here after. If the party does not put up the man he wants to see get the of fice he will vote for the other fellow. He is going to quit whooping 'er up for a fellow just because he is a Re publican. The fact is that Bill hasn't voted a straight ticket since he lias been in the county. In every cam paign he promises every candidate that-approaches him ' that he will vote for him especially if "there is anything in it. Bill used to carry a torch in every populist procession. The Republicans had a blowout and Bill thought that if he paraded he would get a free supper and a " cigar. He didn't, and it made him sore on the party. Bill Shirtless can be a Pop, a Republican, a Democrat and a Prohibitionist all in the same week f there is anything in it. Bill says he admits that he changes his politics often at times, but says he can name some other fellows who think they are the hot stuff who do the same thing. Osborne Farmer. " . Better Stay on the Farm: 'I always hate to see a farmer sell his farm and come to town'" remark ed a philosopher to the Lawrence Gazette. "He nearly always buys a grocery store, with the idea that all the money that comes over the coun ter is net profit. He soon sees he is losing money and sells out to some other farmer. Then he starts a real estate office, and sits around waiting for men to come and buy. In a year or so he has his wife start a boarding house, and when the jig i.s up ' with that he demands a nomination for of fice on the ground that he has been putting in all bis time since he sold is farm working for the' other fel lows, and he thinks the party -owes t to him. After he is beaten all oer the county he gets sore and becomes a loafer. There are several such here in town. I am always mighty sorry 10 see a man sen his farm and move-f to town unless he is ready to retire and has money fenough to educate his family and keep him the rest of his life."

Receipts of cattle are not quite up to expectations this week, and the market is stronger. Last week's mar ket was better, after Wednesday, ac count of smaller run. An unusually large proportion of beef steers is com ing now, and demand for them holds up very well. Prices have not varied above a quarter per hundred in the last two months or more, and just now are at the high point touched in that time. Cows, heifers and bulls have done better in that time than ateers, while stockers and feeders have been at the low ebb recently, but re gained 15 to- 25 cents since the middle of last week, account of extreme scar city. . Cattle supply today 10,000 head. same as yesterday, market strong to 10 higher for the two days. Top steers sold at $5.75 last week- hAl. price this week-$5.75, paid today, bulk of steers selling at $4.60 to $5.30. Choice heifers still bring upwards to 80.00, fair to good ones $4.35 to $4.75, bu,k of cows 3 25 to 4.25, bulls $3.25. to $4.10, veals $5.00 to $7.00, stockers and feeders $3.60 to $4.50, fancy feed ers $4.80 to $5.00, a few cattle around $3.00. A load of choice red eattle sold to an Ohio feeder at $4.80 today. De mand for stockers and feeders is like ly to be ahead of the supply for awhile as feeders will need 'them more as spring approaches, while owners will want to hold them from this out. The hog market is still tending up ward. Supply is moderate, 12,000 to day, market 5 to 10 higher, top $6.40, eight or nine loads at the price, which is the highest of the winter. Bulk of sales at $6.25 to $6.37i. light hoes un to $6.30, pigs $5.35 to $5.90. High prices for provisions reconcile buyers to the high prices for hogs somewhat, but a break is inevitable as soon as country roads permit liberal market ing. Sheep and lambs are still going down. Run was heavy vesterdav. at 17,000 head, but is moderate today, at 6000. Wool is so high that it would seem that the price is about as low as it could get, and further reductions in prices for live mutton may cause own ers to hold their stuff tHl after shear ing. Lambs range from $5.80 to $6.40, wethers and yearlings $5.40 to $5.90, ewes $4.50 to $5.15, feeding lambs $5.30 to $6.00. according to degree of finish. J. A. RlCKART, L. S. Correspondent.
