Ridgeway, clerk of the court are sadder but wiser men because of their recent ex perience -with J. M. Glenwood alias W. R. Warring. Mr. Glen wood drifted into WaKeeney six or eight weeks ago and rep resented himself to be a Kansas Gity Star correspondent. He took up his abode at the Trego IHotel and in the course of time became acquainted with C. E. Ridgway who boards at the Trego Hotel. One evening Mr. Glenwood or Warring went to Mr. Ridgway and in a very po lite and plausible waj explained that he was owing a dollar dues an a certain lodge in Salina and that he had failed to attend to it while the post office and banks were open and would Mr. Ridg way kindly write a check for $1.00. Mr. Ridgwav did so and received a silver dollar in ex change from Mr. Glenwood-Warring. The same thing happened a little later only this time it was a bundle of laundry from Salina and Mr. Ridgway gave him an other check for $1.60 and again -received the cash in exchange. Nothing more was thought of the matter until Wednesday morning when it was discovered that Glenwood- Warring had "flew de coop" and left behind him an unpaid board bill. We have not learned the exact amount, and the two checks had heen cashed at the opposite bank on which they were issued. The one dollar check had been raised to $31,00 and the $1.60 one to $41.60. . Both checkswere cash ed and Mr. Glenwood-Warring had lost no'time in getting out of town. He was heard of at Limon Junction, Colorado hvk, up to the present time he haJlifot been lo cated. Mr. Ridgway says here after he will know who he is writing checks for and Mr. Acre says no more credit will be ad vanced for board bills especially to strangers. Efforts are being madetQ tind.bim and if located it Ts'liable to go hard wituhiui." ELEPHANT LOVE AF FAIR .Big Tom Loves Quesn o the Yankee Robinson Show You who visit the Yankee Rob inson show when it exhibits here Tuesday, August 30th, will ob serve one of the worst cases of love sickness you ever enjoyed. Big Tom. the largest elephant on earth, has an affinity. She is Queen of the Yankee Robinson herd of elephants. Tom and Queen were together years ago with the old Robinson show. Twelve years ago they were sep arated, Queen being sold to an other show. When she was taken away there was much ele phant sadness, and if ever there was sorrow manifested was when Queen and Tom said good hye. They knew the ways of Ihe elephant world and were .impressed with the thought that heir cruel roasters would never -permit them to see each other again. Both elephants took it to heart, and Queen pinned away in her sorrow until at one time . it was thought, she would grieve ' "herself to death',' Tim wore .oh, -the wounded feeling were healed. Xast winter Queen was purchas ed by Yankee Robinson and brought to the winter quarters of the show When she saw Tom, although he had grown twice his former size, she recog-, joized him. No animal man pres ent will forget that meeting. To da this couple are the Lappiest animals in the world and the way that Old Tom- cares for Queen is really an interesting .sight.. Ask the elephant man to ooint out . Queen when you pass through the menagerie and yon will see the happiest and most contented elephant in all the world, unless it be Tom, who Joves Queen devotedly. All the world loves a lover, and all the -elephants in the herd corres pondingly love Queen and Tom. Don't let the baby suffer from eczema, sores or any itching of heskin. Doan's Ointment gives instant relief, cures quickly. "Perfectly safe for children. All druggists sell it. Kansas City Market Report. Kansas City Stock Yards, August 16, 1910. A moderate Monday run of cattle here yesterday enabled salesmen to secure an average of steady prices yesterday, al though Chicago had a big run and a lower market. Beef steers showed a little weakness yester day, but cows and stockers and feeders sold strong, and calves a quarter higher. The excellent country demand keeps up, and is the main substaining feature of the market, as traders have bought many cattle away from the packers yesterday and today m order to sort out the thin cat tle for the country trade, then allowing the heavy end to revert to the killers. The supply to day is larger than that of yes terday, 20,000 head, including 2000 calves, and the market is steady on an average, steers showing a weak tendency again, and cows and stockers and feed ers firm. A feature this week is the small number of quaran tine cattle coming, less than 100 cars for the two days, yes terday and today. This light supply -of southerns does not indicate that supply from that territory is over for the seasoc, as owners are simply holding off temporarily, account of better grass and more stock water late ly. The first train of mountain steers from Colorado arrived to day, and sold at $4.70, and this movement will increase from now on. Top steers sold at $8. 15 today, quite a distinction for this market, as the best Chicago could do yesterday on a run of thirty cattle was $8.05. Heavy grass steers call at $6.25 to $7.25, medium and light steers $4.65 to $5.74, grass cows $3.50 to $4.25, veal calves $6.50 to $7.75, stock ers $3.00 to $5.00, feeders $4.25 to $6.00 Hogs are ten higher today, supply only 6500 head. There was a decline yesterday, but it i was fictitious, as the generil feel- i j mg ".mong shrewd investor that the market is going to ad ! vance. Packers were slow too I get on the bull side, but they are about all lined up on that side now, and with their interest in provisions it does not suit their j purpose to break live hogs now, 'on the light runs coming. .Old heads predict further gains on heavies, and a dropping back of lights and medium weights, and say that pigs will soon be selling out at sharply lower prices. Heavy sales of lard and side meat in the last week, and the belief in light runs ahead, the account for packers complete reversal on heavy hogs in that time. Sheep made a gain of 15 to 25 cents to-day, lambs reach ing $7.00, and yearlings $5.65. Country demand is large, and $6.25 was paid for lambs yester, day, and $5.00 for breeding ewes today, to go to the country. Fat weathers are $4.50, and ewes $4.30 for tops today. Utah range stuff has been making up a' good share of the supply lately, although none is here today. The top lambs today came from the alfalfa section of Colorado. J. A. IllCKAKT, , Lu S.

In spite of the conditions of the roads enroute and the threat- ning weather the game was called at 5 p. m. with LaCrosse to bat, Ikey Rhine in the box and Bill Wollner of Pendennis calling the opposing boys out in one, two, three order because - of the fast fielding of our boys. One run was put to our credit and everything was lovely until the fourth inning, when Ikey walked two men, struck -out the next, hit the next and when the smoke cleared away LaCrosse had scored five runs. Every thing looked blue but two more were added to our credit in the sixth. In the seventh the balloon went up so did the ball for Ryan stepped to the plate and knocked a home run scoring one ahead of him. The score in the seventh and eighth inning stood five to six, in favor of LaCrosse, yet they felt themselves slipping and were becoming quarrelsome and if it hadn't been for Shorty's amusing antics on second and Manager Kelley's threatening mood on the side lines the in evitable would have happened. 1 he game was brought to a howling successful finish, Smee scoring Davis with a little safe hit, and Ryan the old reliable with the score six to six and a promise of a five dollar bill if he brought in another run hit to right field scoring the winning run. . Credit is due all the team as they all played gilt-edgted ball. The Merchants Cafe is receiv- mg a fresh coat of paint. House for Rent; also Light double Harness, for sale, good as new. Inquire of E.
