Shoes, Men's Work COUNTY TAXES DUE ! Over the receiving desk at the county treasurers office-there hangs a card with these words upon it," "Keep Smiling." No one seems to know why the card was placed there for everybody knows its a physical impossibility for a man to smile while he Is paying his taxes and he would no sooner allow even the suggestion of a smile to play upon his features than that he would at the death of a friend. . In a few days the county clerk wiir turn over to the county treasurer, C. M. Bell, the the tax rolls for collec tion, and then the money for the ex penses of the county should pour into the yawning coffer of the county. Treasurer Bell is not anticipating any great rush to settle up. However he is going to be ready for all who do drop in. The greatest danger, Mr. Bell fears is that when people come in to pay is that they will come without any proper description of their property and then his troubles begin. If each one would bring a list or -even their last year's tax receipt it would help out wonderfully. THANKSGIVING PROCLAMATION "The people of this land having by long sanction and practise set apart toward the close of each passing year a day on which to cease from their labors and assemble for the purpose of giving praise to Him who is the author of the blessings they have en joyed, it is my duty as chief execut ive to designate at this time the day for the fulfilment of tfiis devout purpose. "Our country has been signally favored in many wa3-s. The round of the seasons has brought rich harvests Our industries have thriven far be yond our domestic needs, the prod uction of our labor is daily finding enlarged markets abroad. We have been free from the curses of famine, pestilence and of war. Our national councils have furthered the cause of peace in other lands and the spirit of benevolence has brought us into closer touch with other people to the strengthening of the'bondsof fellow ship and good will that link us to our comrades in the universal brother hood of nations. Strong in the sense of our own right and inspired by as strong a sense of the rights of others, we live in peace and harmony with the world. Rich in the priceless pos session and abundant ' resources, wherewith the unstinted bounty of God lias endowed us, we are unself ishly glad when other people pass on ward to prosperity and peace, that the great privileges we enjoy may continue and that each year may see our country more firmly established in the regard and esteem of our fel low nations, is the prayer that should arise in every thankful heart. "Wherefore, I, William Howard Taft, President of the United States of America, designate Thursday, the thirtieth day of November next, as a day of Thanksgiving and prayer. AUTO RAN INTO FENCE Ike Wiginton of Quinterhad a nar row escape from what might have been a serious accident while return ing to this place from Gove City the other day. He was returning by way of Park, accompanied by Frank Ox- ley and Attorney Parsons. A mile out of Park they came to where the road had been recently fenced and no signal put out to give notice to trav elers.- .Although the lights were lit, Mr. Wigington failed to see the wire and crashed into the fence before he could stop his machine. Luckily, the wire caught on the wind shield of the machine, tearing it off but doing no damage to the occupants.. State of Ohio, City of Toledo, Lucas County, ss. Frank J.

COOK RISES TO EXPLAIN- Editor of the World; t I noticed in the Trego Countv Re porter saying the young men of the city had organized a Keeney-Wah club and that the older men are planning to organize a War Whoop Club and that O. L. Cook was to en gineer the scheme. J Now Mr. Editor, that was the talk, but when our wise council heard of it, they got busy and took it upon themselves to organize said club. So they at once called a meeting of the wise law makers of the city and one wise gentleman (if you will excuse me using the expression) arose and made quite a speech, at least he called it a speech, and said it would not do to let so important a matter to get into the hands of O. L. Cook, and he thought the beat thing to do was to keep the organization within them selves. So they took a vote on the matter and the result was a tie. So they called on the Secretary of the Commercial Club, he being a wise counselor as you remember the organ izer of the Commercial club was a gentleman of some merit, being the man who skipped the town leaving a good many of our citizens holding the sack. So after counseling the wise they concluded to go ahead and they did. They started in full blast. The first scene of this orgaizat- ion was on Hallow'een night when a minister of the gospel, with club in uanu, was cnasing nis neighbors up ana aown tne streets ana alleys, paw ing and striking like a wild man, seeking that he might devour. Some body followed by the Big Chief and the rest of the brave gang, thev . -i . . , ... i howled and threatened and the cit izens looked on with some amusement but after all the noise and threats all it amounted to was a few more dollars expense put up on top of our city's indebtedness. ' They told us they would clean up our city but it did'nt.look much like it by the class of people that paraded our streets a few days ago, both day and night and yet the Big Chief said by his actions let the good work go on.: .

A TALE OF WOE "She was eating pig's feet one day at the door of her cabin, when a neighbor came to tell her bad news. Her husband had gotten in a fight at a saloon, a ball had lodged in his lung and he had died instantly. "The woman, a pig's foot held mid way to her mouth, listened to this harrowing tale in profound silence. Then falling to her pig's foot vigor ously again, she said: "Wait till I finish this pig's trot ter, an' ye'll hear some hollerin' as is hollerin." NONE NEEDED HERE The girls of LaCross have organized an anti-slang society. A certain miss was elected president. Asked if she would accept the - position, she re plied: "Sure, Mike, Gosh, girls, I am so rattled in my cupola that I am really short on gab. We are certain ly hitting the high places and I never tumbled to such a job before, but when I give you the high ball I ex pect you to get there Eli, and whoop 'er up Eli. I think I am up to snuff enough so that the flies won't light on me while doing the president act of this society, but I won't stand for any monkey doodle business from you gals while running this ranch. We ought to invite the married ladies to get in out of the wet and shoot this slang business, its getting to be fierce." " Dr. M. J.

Harris took possesion of the Grinnell drug store Wednesday morn ing, put on a new lock, announced he had paid the rent for a month in ad vance, opened up a box of Tom Keene cigars which lie had just pur chased from Cap Weir and dared the public to come in and spend its cash. At the same time P. J. Meir was in possession of a bill of sale fof the same store, signed by John W. Rob erts, to whom J. V. Wise had assign ed the stock when the mortgage given by Wise to Roberts had be come due and Wise was unable to meet it. While the leading actors in this great comedy-drama are not giving out interviews for publication, the story runs something like this: Har ris made Roberts a proposition to trade his equity in a piece of land to Roberts for the store. Roberts ver bally accepted the proposition. Har ris got his deed and put it up some place for Roberts and then took pos session of the drug store. While this was going on Meier had made Roberts a proposition that listened better than the one Harris had made and Roberts had made him a bill of sale. Last week John F. Jones of Wa keeney, brought joint suit against Roberts and Wise in J ustice Splher's court at Gove for $70 due on rent of the store building, owned by said Jones. When the case .came for hearing Tuesday morning the de fendants did not appear and judg ment was rendered for the amount asked. The stock of paints was levied on. The question, "Are you running a drug store?" was put to Harris. He answered, "Nope, we're running a music and cigar store Gove County Record. .

THE BIG HEAD We stood in the ticket office of a depot the other day and heard a timid old lady trying to extract information from a haughty clerk. ' It took him longer to get rid of her by treating her snubingly than it would have had he given her the desired information. He was insolent and supercilious. If his insolence had been witnessed by a superior officer of the road he would have been on the bum now. We have noticed often that the higher up the official is in the rail way service or any other service in wLiih the puwUo cmnes in contact, I tne more poiite and courteous he is. I The reason for this is that the un- A 1 might placed on , people are . inso lence and ignorance. If every boy who works in a depot or a store and every girl who works in a telephone office or behind a sale counter would just come to realize that the insolent people are always low salaried people, we would have better courtesy and service Wichita Beacon.

It is now said that there is not much use for the towns of the 6th dlst. doing anything as Great Bend has the best show. Maybe they"have. We don't know. We do know that if there is to be no politics in the matter, that city has no better chance than any of them. The Seventh district has a number of state institutions, and the Sixth has but two, but if the politicians think they can get a better pull by locating the hospital in the Seventh, that is where it will go Ellis Re view. - . MAKING HARD FIGHT. Wa-Keeney is making a hard fight for the new Insane asylum which is soon to be located. Oakley has been told that it is "to far west" in spite of that old adage about "go west young Insane Asylum and grow- up with Oakley?" But the powers that be say "nixie, not for Oakley." We are for Oakley, first, last and all the time and in between times, but if Oakley can't have it then we would be mighty glad to see Wakeeney slip in and get it. We fellows out here in the west end of Kansas, .have been " paying out our share of the revenue for nigh onto a hundred years to build a state capitol, state universit ies, normal schools, penitentaries, etc., but all we have gotten out of it is the privilege of sending a fellow to the pen or the asylum once In a while. We want to be on closer speaking relations with these insti tutions and going on the theory that familiarity breeds contempt" it would make a better citizenship out here where the grass is short. Wes tern Kansas is entitled to this in stitution and it looks to us that the intent and purpose of the law would be filled by dropping the new instit- ution in the stocking of our sister of WaKeeney.
