OBITUARY V On Wednesday evening-, September 13th, at about 8:30 o'clock, Mrs. Myr- tie tellers, wife of Charles Sellers of J mis city, aiea. at ner home after a Jong ana painrut illness caused by a complication of diseases. While her death had been fully expected for some time prior to its occurrence yet it came "as a- sliock to her many friends who were filled with much sorrow when the word reached them. Mrs. Sellers was born in Republic couDty, Kan , 'November 27, 1881, and came with her parents to Trego county when she was about thirteen years of age. Or the 16th of March, 1599, she was united in marriage to Charles Sellers of this city and resid ed here until the time of her death. To this uiion four sons were born three of wiibtn survive their . mother. At best death is the saddest of all trials that one can be called upon to pass through but when a young mother scarcely in the noon-day of her life is called upon to leave her young . children, her husband and her home words become Impotent to express the deep grief of those left to mourn her untimely loss and if it were not that the Christian's hope like a bow of promise spans the dark gulf between time and eternity it would indeed be a burden that scarcely could' be borne . but we can even in the dart hour of sorrow have that assurance, that there is a Better Land where iose who loved each other on earfh can be reunited if they remain aithf ul until the jour ney's end. ; Mrs. Sellers possessed a bright hap py disposition and there seemed to radiate from her very personality a brightness and warmth which captiv ated people ' and made her scores of friends. ' . She was a , member of the Presby; terian churcty-yand was active in its missionary,-$unday school and choir departments) She was a member of the Locust club having- been elected its new president To- the present year.. Sbe was also a member of the Royal Neighbor's lodge. - She-was a. demoted wife ail. mother loving iter family and husband above all else in the world and ever pointed out the right, the good and the true for her children to follow. Her life's work, is tinisLed and she has passed on to her reward leaving behind jer sweet and tender memories that will be cherished as long as life shall last. Besides her husband ani three sons she leaves four sisters and three brothers to mourn her loss. On Friday afternoon tiie funeral was held at the home and was con ducted by Rev. Allison her pastor who spoke most feelingly" and appro priately. Mrs. J. H. Neisley sang "One Sweetly Solemn Thought", very beautifully and - impressively. The Locust club attended in a body as also did the members of the Royal Neigh bors lodge. The floral offerings were very numerous and very beautiful. The pall bearers were: L. C. Gleason, E. A. Courtney, W. L. Larabee.C. M. Hutchison, J. H. Heck man and J. C. Kirkner. A large number of rela tives and sympathizing friends fol lowed the remains to the Wa-Keeney cemetery where the interment took place. The World with their many friends unite in extending the deepest sym pathy to those thus sadly bereaved. . CARD OF THANKS Words cannot express our apprecia tion to the many friends who so kind ly assisted us during the illness and death of our loved one. . All that hu man kindness could suggest to help and comfort was unselfishly "offered. No sweeter memory can live In any heart -than the memory of kind friends in tha hour of deep bereave ment.

Ad dress Department A, Knight -Campbell Music Co,, ren ver, Col Adv 30-4 A SUCCESSFUL FAIR The fair closed last Saturday night after four days or fine weather, good exhibits and Urge attendance. With out aoubt from all stand points this was the most successful fair ever held in Trego county. The large new exhibit building more than does cred it to the place and make . it possible to show all exhibits to the best ad vantage. The large new grand stand and other sheds and buildings also added materially to the pleasure and comfort of every one. The crowds were the largest that ever attended a feature of this kind in . Trego county." The fair has come to sty and this county should feel proud that her - enterprising citizens are building up such a good solid assoc iation that will ' represent . Trego county and her best interests to all our adjoining friends and neighbors as well as her own people. The mer chant's display was all good. Each both attractively arranged presented a pleasing effect and is -an excellent method of advertising. The agri culture display was not as large or of the quality it usually is owing to the extremely dry hot weather of the Summer but a few exhibits were fine never-the-less. The floral, art and fancy -work departments were as usual very pretty and attractive. The cake, bread and canned goods exhibited were excellent. The Stude baker, Buick, Dodge, Overland and Chevrolet autos were exhibited by agents.. Tbe stock-and poultry ex hibits were exceptionally good. On Friday the aero-plane could not rqake an ascent ' on account of the wind which sprung up but Saturday it made a splendid spectacular flight. The amusements were all good and were well patronized. . The manage ment is to be congratulated upon the excellent manner in which everything was planned and handled and should receive the hearty co-operation of every citizen of this county, next year when a larger and better fair will be planned. t Races f ; ," V '- .

Pen room was at a premium in the cattle yards today, receipts, 23.0C0 head, following 47,000 bead yesterday. However, movement toward the scales started early at Ue trading basis established yesterday in most cases, medium and plain killing cattle a little lower sometimes. Plen ty of outside buyers are here today, taking a good many stejers for feeding at $7.60 to $8.80. Beef Cattle Prime fed steers again sold at $10.90, same price as top yes terday, and fancy yearlings brought $10.75. Grass cattle sold up to $9.00, and steers that have been fed a little on pasture went above that price, pretty good steers around $8.00, middle w oiwra woikuiuk lujw iiw iiw. at $7.00 to $7.50. lighter t steers $8.00 to $6.75. Feeder competition waa ftn important item, and cattle took fairly good fiOs. Colorado beef steers this week sold at $6.85 to $7.25, : including 18 carsfM)53-lb liomed Texas bred steers from Placer villa at $7.10. Best grass cows bring up to 86.50, .medium cows $5.25 to $6.00, plain ; cows $5.15 to $5.40, veals worth up to $11.00. Stockers and Feeders. Suitable grass steers of good weights are want ed by Illinois feeders who paid up to $8.00 for good ones today, feeder buy ers bidding on cattle with feeding -outcome from $7.50 upwards. Plain feeders sold down to $6.75. A drove of good Colorado yearlings sold at $7.50 this morning, and Panhandle yearlings brought $7.25 to $7.90 yes terday,' twos, $7.00 to $7.50, medium stock steers $6.15 to $6.80, stock calves $6.50 to $K75, stock cows and heifers $5.M to $7.50. Hogs Receipts were 15,000 head, fairly liberal at most points, and. a strong opening developed into a weak close, top $11.15, same as top yester day, this figure paid by order buyers and by packers also. Heavy hogs sold up to $11.00, and pigs $9 00 to $10.25. The feature of the trade continues to be immense outlet for fresh pork and for course meats, both for domestic consumption and for foreign' trade, hence the market seems doubly safe, since there are evidences of close marketing, and a weakness in prices can easily be registered with smaller supplies at the markets. Sheeps and Lambs The weakness in sheep and lambs for several days disappeared today, sales steady to 10 higher. Utah lambs sold at $10-35 and $10.45, natives around $10.00, Arizonas $9.75 to $10. Some light weight Mexican yearlings brought $8.50, fat ewes $7.00 to $T.35. BejMipts were 17000 head yesterday and 12000 today, which means that a good many feeding lambs are available. Prices on feeders are lower, at $9.-65 to $10.15, breeding ewes $7 to $9.25, feeding ewes $5.25 to $6.60. . J. A. Rick art, Market Correspondent. NOT ADVERTISING CONNELLY For the benefit of those who are wont to circulate scurrilous stories on Otis L. Benton, we would like to ask you if you believe this clipping that comes from the Esoon Times, a Democratic paper of Esbon, who has used his influence for the past several years in Mr. Connelly's behalf, and who was at that time Secretary of the Democratic Central committee of this county and is still Democratic eommitteman from Ksbon: We have . Congressman John , R. Connelly's order for an adv., in this issue of the Times; and unlike- other in former campaigns, the - order was accompanied by the price pf the. adv. SWIGGETT nay, Kansas in full, but since John still owed this office for his 1914 advertising, and ; since w have never been able to col lect anything on the same, we simply applied his check on his bid account and are leaving the ad. out or the pa per. The lesson that we've learned thru bur associations with John R. Connelly, is to discount his campaign promises, at least 100 per cent, and never again to accept tiiz political advertising, unless he is clear on our books and his order is accompanied by the cash in full Esoon Times. Do you believe this story? You do not and why? Because you are a sup porter of John R. Connelly, but If you should get hold of the same story derogatory to Otis L. Benton you would scatter it to the four winds, until all would proclaim it and tha Jfittle birds would sing it from trees and f ences, and. every house top and i pinnacle or trie iana.. We did not print . or reoroduce it for J jleve or guess but just simply to prove to you that stories without an" iota, of credence will start on one , candidate as well as another, and all ' depends upon, whose ox is betag gor ed, whether it is scattered or not. - If any one doubts this statement, Mr. -Vaughn." will -make affidavits to this, and he is a stand pat Democrat, too Randall News.
