It is not generally known that
Cryrus Leland, Jr., Republician .', candidate for Governor, is one of the most extensive farmers and stock breeders in Kansas. The fact is that farming of the up-to-date kind and the breeding of fine stock is Mr. Leland's chief business. Doniphan county has no finer farms or better equipp ed buildings for stock than those owned and operated by Mr. Leland. It is true that Mr. Le land is engaged in the general merchandising business, having stores at Troy and Highland Sta tion, and an opera house, lumber yard, grain business, elevator and a butcher shop at the former, but these are side issuesas com pared to his extensive farming and fine stock breeding. The list of fine farms owned by Mr. Leland in Doniphan County is composed of the Blair farm, Fair grounds which he bought from the b air association containing a half mile track, the Bain farm, the Ayers place, Highland Sta tion farms, two Burr Oak farms, and "The Elms" the Leland home place. These well kept -farms, ' stocked with high grade farm ' animals contain about 1400 acres. Mr. Leland owns probably one of the finest orchards in the state, covering 160 acres. On the Stout place Mr. Leland operates a fine dairy with thirity J ersey cows. The Burr Oak farm last year produced fifty acres of alfalfa the four cuttings averaging 150 tons. Mr. Leland puts up from 1500 to 1800 tons of hay a year. Out at "The Elms" the home place is a fine nsh pond stocked with - bass and other varieties. This pond is fed by springs, and it is here that Mr. Leland cuts his ice for his ice house every winter. On the Blair farm he raised about 200 sheep annually which supplies his butcher shop in town with fine mutton. He raises horses, mules, cattle and hogs on his farms, as well as corn, wheat, and other grains extensively. Cyrus Leland has demonstrated that farming and stock breeding pays in Kansas. For nearly forty years he has been gradually adding to his acres in Doniphan County, and each year he tries to improve the quality of farm animals raised on his farms. Mr. Leland has become wealthy as wealth goes in Kansas, by applying the best known methods to his farming and stock-growing business. Leavenworth Post.

Jake Moore, State Warden of George, says of Kodol for Dyspepsia: "E. C. DeWitt & Co., Chicago, HI. Dear Sirs I have suffered more than twenty years from indiges tion. About eighteen months ago I had grown so much worse that I could not digest a crust of corn bread and could not retain anything on my stomach. I lost 25 lbs.; in fact I made up my mind that I could not live but a short time, when a friend of mine recommended Kodol. I consented to try it to please him and was better in one day. I now weigh more than I ever did in my life and am in better health than for many years. Kodol did it. I keep a bottle constantly, and write this hoping that hu manity may be benefitted.

A Quincy ' traveling man tells this story. He was in the smok ing car when a man came rush ing in from the car behind, evidently in great agitation and said: Has anybody m this car got any whiskey? A woman in the other car has fainted. instantly a dozen flasks were produced. The man who asked for it, picked out the largest one, drew the cork and put the bottle to his lips.

That man hasn't got a friend in town," I heard a fellow say the other day about a certain man. ur course trie ieiiow has a few friends, but the remark gives something to think about. Why are his friends so scarce? I'll tell you. He has taken advantage of the opportunity to gold brick them. When it came his turn to do them a favor they needed he wasn't there with the needed goods. When the other fellows were out with their shoulders to the wheel pushing for the goods of the town he was holding back m the traces and saying he didn't owe the town anything. He has had a racket with almost every man he has had any busi ness dealing with; he has shot off his mouth about things he knew nothing about, and been on the contrary side of every question with his neighbors. In other words he has lived as though there was no body else in the community with any right. But the point to make is this: Are you living the same way? Has your bump of selfished grown so large that you can't look it any more and see your neighbors? Do you keep a supply of gold brick and unload one unto a friend at every chance? If you do the time will come when the fellows will stand on the edge of the sidewalk and say of you. "He hasn't got a friend in town." Osborne Farmer.
