Or how much respect and apprec iation, would the employer show by discharging an able and faithful ser vant to make room for an untried hand? Nothin' to it. If you are anxious to know the number of unemployed men. and boys there are, just start a ten cent suit in a Justice's court and you will have an opportunity to count 'em. o It is said that under our new sys tem of electing supreme court judges it is possible for a candidate to be the first choice of a majority of the voters and yet fail election. Is it true and how is it possible? Yes, be cause every voter has three votes and because every candidate has live op ponents. You can demonstrate this with a pencil and sheet of paper. The Trego county court house gang Is a cosmopolitan bunch. Among them there are several Democrats and Republicans and one Socialist, and every one of them is also a pro gressive prohibitionist. Old Si has a nickname for Aunt Simpy. He calls her '-Ultima." No, not because she alwavs has the last j'word; because she is the limit. Any bornshort can say "If," after the returns are all in. etc., It appears from the returns now on file in-tjhe ofriee of the county clerk that about one voter in every twenty, or five per cent, lost his vote at the recent primary election, owing to de fective marking, etc. It is to be re gretted that a voter will take the trouble to go to the polls and ! then disfranchise himself through lack of information as to the manner of vot ing, or by reason of nervous excite ment. Perhaps there is no remedy for the excitement but the proper manner of marking ballots may be (and ought to be) learned before go- o ing to the polls. All public spirited citizens should take a non-partisan interest in the spread of plain and trustworthy Information of this kind to the end that no voter shall lose any part of his voting power. o Old Si says he didn't have the hay fever this season because he couldn't afford it. As a matter of ' fact, he hasn't had money enough for a vaca tion this last forty years. Preparedness for war does not' pro mote peace. On the contrary, it is the bulwark of belligerency.

The morning estimate of 10,000 proved to be two thousand too small today. A year ago Tuesday of this week 20,000 cattle arrived, a good share of which were drought refugees. Corn feed cattle sold steady to-day with a fair number of cattle at $9.75 to $10.30. Grass steers sold strong to to 15 higher, the better grades taking most gain. Steers wintered on wheat pasture and glazed in the Kansas "flint hills'', and which had never tasted corn, sold at $3.85, 1288 lbs. average. Feeding steers sold steady today, tlie main demand being for cheap ones, at -47.25 to $7.75. Some fleshy Kansas steers were taken by feeders yesterday at $3.45 and $8.55. Light stock steers sold 10 to 15 high er, sales largely at $0.25 to $7.25. Cows and heifers sold strong, best grass cows $0.75, and corn fed cows scarce, top $7.25. Thirty-two cars of quarantine cattle arrived, following 90 cars Monday, sales strong. Middle class Ok iahomas made up nearly all the supply, best of which sold at $65, good wititered Oklahomas are worth up to $7.50, and common light steers find quick-outlet at $5.10 to $5.75. Canning cows are in good de mand, at $4.25 to $5.00; and bulls sell well, good heavy ones at $-5.85 to $6.75 and veal calves up to $10.50. The good general rain over the country Sunday was the biggest help the mar ket has had recently. Commission men have ordered in a fair run of Kansas grass cattle for tomorrow, anticipating continued strength on that kind. Hogs receipts are 9500) today, which was also more than the early estimate. A few early sales were steady with a top of $9.25. Late sales were 5 to 10 lower, bulk of sales at $9.00 to $9.20, the latter price the top paid by packers. Local prices are 5 to 15 cents above other river mar kets, amount of greater demand here, packers, order buyers and ser um makers each having orders that have to be filled. Buyers are holding the hand in the sheep barns this week .and prices were again 10 to 15 cents lower today. Receipts here are 12000, a seasonable supply, but Omaha and Chicago have around 35000 each. The unequal distribu tion works against sellers. Top western lambs brought $7.75 to-day, best natives $7.50, ewes at $4.00 to $5.35, weathers scarce at $5.40 to $5.85 and yearling $5.75 to $d.69. Some feeding stock will be available from now on, lambs worth $6.50 to $7.00. J. A.Rickart, Market Correspondent.
