Another great thing to his credit is that 'when the boys call on him he tells them at once the status of their case. He seems to be remembering his friends and there is a mark-of a great man. Occassionally men are elected to con gress who are at once, surprised and dumbfounded- with their own great ness, and they forget their friends. Such men are of short duration.

Hixson was born in Som- merset county, New Jersey, March 2, 1848; died at Wa-Keeney, Kansas, December 21, 1912, aged 64 years, 9 months and 19 days. " Mr. Hixson moved with his parents to Illinois in 1856, where he married Henrietta Groendyke at Baritan, October 19, 1870. To this union were bora one son and three daughters; J. G. Hixson of Wa-Keeney, Mrs. W. J. Howe of Delta, Colorado; Mrs. F. A. Howe of Cedar Edge, Colorado, and Mrs. M. H. Powers of Ogallah, all of whom were present at the funeral which occured at Ogallah last Mon day, conducted by Rev. S. L. Allison and attended by a large number of friends. Mr. Hixson and his family were among the pioneers of this county, having located on a farm near Ogal lah in the spring of 1886, where he continued to reside until the death of Mrs. Hixson which occured in Jan uary, 1908. After the death of his wife he purchased property . in Wa Keeney and has made his home' here since, more or less of the time engag ed in mercantile pursuits. He was a successful farmer and stockman and at all times an exemplary citizen, en terprising and public-spirited. He united with the Dutch Reformed church at the age of fifteen years and was a member of the Presbyter ian church of Wa-Keeney at the time of his death. His family have the sincere sympathy of a wide circle of friends who deeply regret what ap pears to be thel untimely -taking off one of our most)' respected citizens, x Lars Hanson Returns to Sunny Kansas Coming to Wa-Keeney once more, I took a walk out north to the place of worship on the Sabbath day. It was a beautiful morning and the sun seemed to do its best to make the world comfortable but the globe had gone so far north and had reached its limit and started back again to get the benefit of the light and heat of the sun in full measure. Nature as well as the old earth seemed to rest quietelyaad to gather' strength to produce another harvest to supply the wants of all living crea tures and gladen man's heart. The thistles which are so abundant along the way side testify the truth that what God hath spoken stands fast forever. What a change it will be when the earth is recreated and shall blossom as the rose all the year round. The Sabbath School opened at the usual hour, begun with beautiful hymn, "T'is So Sweet To Trust In Jessus." The lesson for the day was Missionary work. All Christians are salt of the earth and light of the world, and must have a part in bring ing Salvation to others, and -if faith fully going forth and weepeth bear ing precious seed shall doubtless come again rejoicing bringing his sheaves with him. After the Sab bath school a short talk was given on the titiie system showing from the bible that one-tenth of all income be longs to the Lord and must not be used for any other purpose than for the ministry of the gospel. L. H. Health Almanac for 1913 'The Kansas State Board of Health has published its second annual Health Almanac for 1913.

"The State Department of Health will furnish one of these Almanac to any citizen of Kansas upon request on a postal card, and it is confidently hoped that on every mantle in Kan sas.

MARKET REPORT Kansas City Stock Yards, Decem ber 24, 1912. A pre-Christmas run of 3000 cattle to-day was taken at strong to 10 higher prices, though buyers quit early, and a few cattle had to be held over. Added to the gain of 15 to 25 cents yesterday, this makes prices as good as two weeks ago, but not quite back up to the high point of this month. The ad vance, however, sets forth the healthy condition of the trade when not ham pered by excessive supplies, and con servative marketing after the first of January, will doubtless result in firm markets. December receipt! of cat tle here will total 160,000 head, which will be thirty percent more than were received last . December, and about a normal supply for the month when compared with Decembers for several years back. This is in line with the heavy purchases of feeding cattle this fall. As a rule these cat tle have been marketed after a short feed, nearly all of these bought pre vious to October 15th, having already been shipped out. That leaves mod erate holdings in feed lots for the next month or two. Some very good steers bought $8.90 to-day and there will probably not be not many sales above nine dollars for. some time, bulk of the native steers under $8.00. Some low grade southern cattle form the receipts in quarantine division today, though good meal fed steers weighing up to 1150 pounds sold here yesterday at $7.25. Stock steers sell up to $6.75 this week, and best feed ers at $7.40. Hogs arrived to the number of 8090 to-day, and the mar ket showed some class, sales strong to five cents higher than yesterday, though the close was weak. 'Tops brought $7.45, bulk $7.10 to $7.40. There is not much conflict over pric es, packers- being content to let tilings , run ' along on a fresh meat basis till receipts increase, which is expected after the first of the year. Weighs will be heavier then also, and a strong effort will be made to lower prices. Sheep and lambs are also selling better this week, prices 25 to 30 cents above the close of last week, top lambs today at $8.00, yearlings worth up to $7.00, wethers $5.00, ewes . $4.50, feeding lambs $6.50 to $7.00. This has been the mildest. December in the middle West since 1907, and - absolutely free from snow, ideal in every way - for feeding, hence fed stock is showing good returns to feeders so far on all kinds of stock. "rr " J. A.
