For sev eral years Broughton had an eventful career before a suitable name v. as found for the place, having finajly been named In honor of W. S. Brous?h ton. who built the first and only l-i-vator. Rosevale was the first name oi the town, then it was changed to Springfield, but on account of a bad mix up and confusion of other post offices of the same name and others similar, it was finally changed to BrouEhton. and it has since been re garded as cne of the best business and shipping points in Clay county out side of the county seat or Jiay county. Jesse Dever is one of her earliest settlers, locating here in March, 184. In 1S85 he was appointed agent for the Union Pacific, at a salary of $13 a month. The railroad refused to put up a derot because the business would not justify it. Mr. uever nimseii erect ed a email building for the purpose, and the company raised his salary to $30 a month. From that time, Octo ber. 1885, to the present his nam has been on the Union racine pay roil. Ami finally, when the railroad com pany erected their own depot the sal ary of M. F. Dever was increased to 135 a month. The business of Broughton is mostly bandied by two firms. K. N. Kann does a general line of merchandising, Including harness and hardware. The other firm is that of R. Scheinkoenia and B. A. Hinds, who carry a run line of Implements and buy stock auU grain. While this section of country Is thickly settled, the belief Is quite -general .-that other business men set tling here to engage In the came avui cations would find poor picking. And these firms have the utmost confidence nf the farmers. While Broughton has two lines of railroad. Union Pacific and Rock'.-s land, business seems to be about even- lv divided. Peter Sonenberg has charge of the Union Pacific section and ti.. Gardiner that of the Rock Island, the tixn section divisions are clean as a Darlor. and . one can almost see his face while walking over either section, th re itn free from weeds. Jesse Dever is the postmaster. Since the office was established as a money order office in 1899 there have been is sued 4.880 money orders, ana tne dusi Tins of the office now averages over S"iOrt a month. The Broughton Telephone company has about 125 phones, mostly In tha homes of the farmers. The telephona office Is in charge of Mrs. J. H. Ver ner. Broughton ha a Methodist church costing about J2.300. It also has an itirg rn-m of the Modern Woodmen of America, with a membership of about 80. The Odd Fellows lodge own a quarter of a block of ground on which there Is a fine grove. They number upwards of 50. They expect to build a good hall In the near fu ture. On Memorial Sabbath only one G. A. R. comrade was present. Broughton used to have a post with 15 members. The majority of them have since died. R. N. Rahn, general merchant, is pending a few days In Geary, Ok. He will return with Mrs. Rahn the latter part of the week.. The Broughton stock buyer, "Rod" Bcheinkoenig. says when it comes to buying stock he wouldn't quit this point for either of those he has ship ped from. He says the stock Is here, and the crops to fatten with are alwnys raised in the Republican valley. The 100 or more Mexican laborers who have been working on the Rock Island with headquarters at Brough ton for over a month, have moved to Clay Center. Some of the Broughton Ites seem to have caught on to th;ir language. The rich trade Broughton draws might be a splendid opening for some body with a little capital to put in a stock of lumber. Harness stock and ' hardware can be handled In connec tion. The "lid" Is on tighter In Brought-m than bark clings te a tree. Politics and leafing are not indulged In here. Many of the commercial tourists take In Broughton on their rounds. If they are here over night they will be served at a splendid hotel. DS. CO0K1NHAM I Longest Established Specialist ia Topeka Hours: to 12. Sundays 9:30 rOIJCV OP CONCILIATION. Railways Have Adopted One Towards the Shippers. Railroads have adopted a policy of conciliation toward shippers. They do not appear to be anxious to have dif ferences which have arisen over rates and other affairs affecting transporta tion aired before the interstate com merce commission. Adherence to this policy will lighten the labors of the commission materially and may save the roads from a great deal of annoy ance ana possiDiy greater ills. This Is a distinct departure. Until quite recently the roads have contested every complaint made before the com mission and have not been content with the decisions of that body when they were against them, but have ap pealed to the courts, where In many cases tney nave carried their point. Their changed position has been brought about since the going into ef fect of the Hepburn act, which the roads as a whole have decided to ac cept In good faith and observe strictly m au tnelr dealings with shippers. Their latest policy of conciliation ap pears to nave tne approbation of the commission, for that body is doing all it can to get complainants and the roads to settle their differences pri vately and in such a way, as to avoid official interference. In -some of the cases thus settled a compromise has been reached, but In a great number, probably constituting a majority, the roads have conceded the shippers' claims. Such concessions have been pretty general In cases where the charge has arisen from alleged dis crimination, either as between classes of shippers or between places. A few of the latter character of cases may be cited in illustration of what has been going on: . In March last the . southeastern group of roads were charged .with maintaining a higher rate proportion ally to McRae and Helena, Ga than to Cordele and Fitzgerald In the same state. The case was set for hearing, but before the date arrived the roads revised their tariffs In such a way as to remove the cause of the complaint. and it was accordingly dismissed. In the same way a complaint against the Illinois Central by the Holcomb Hayes company, that its rate on ties from Hopklnsville, Ky.. to Illinois points was excessive, was admitted to be reasonable in its nature, the high rate naving been made through a clerical error, and the road expressing its willingness to rectify its mistake. the complaint was promptly dropped. Rates on sugar to the southwestern points were adjusted in the same man ner, and a long hearing was thus made unnecesary. PAINE COTTAGE DOOMED. "Home Sweet Horn?" Is to Be Re modeled by New Owner.

MINISTER'S FOOD Its Value Discovered During Absence . . of Family. . A Fla. minister had an Interesting ex perience when his family were compell ed to leave home on account of the yel low fever. He says: "When we were visited by a yellow fever scare, my family left for an indefinite stay in the Interior. "I had, for about two1 years, been un der considerable physical and mental strain, and my nervous system seemed to utterly give way. J. had some excel lent physicians, but their remedial agencies failed to reach the case at best, affording only temporary relief. "At the time the family left, my at tention was caned to li rape-Nuts food. Several things had led me to believe that my troubles were largely due to improper nutrition. The absence of the family gave me a good opoprtunlty to try the new food, for it is perfectly cooked and therefore required no work on my part, , So I began to make two meals a day. supper and breakfast, on Grape-Nuts and cream or milk, and had nothing else l connnea myseir to tne proper allow ance, not overeating. The improvement was marked, almost from the first my digestion was better, sleep became reg ular and restful, and I began to gain flesh, . I could soon do work with less fatigue and mare satisfaction. "My nervous system was wonderfully improved, and I soon weighed more than I ever had "before and found my strength equal to all the responsibility. This was not all; on the return of the family Grape-Nuts became a regular article of food at the morning meal. The children ate it and improved. "My wife, who was nursing an infant. discovered that after she began using Grape-Nuts regularly, for the first time Nature's food supply for the baby was adequate without resorting to artificial subterfuges. Grape-Nuts food not only carried us through the sickly season, but has been a Godsend to our entire family." Read "The Road to Wellville," in pkgs.

"Journalism since Jamestown," was the subject of an address delivered before the National Editorial associa tion at the Jamestown exposition to day by Crosby S. Noyes, editor of the Washington Star. Mr. Noyes compared the achieve ments of Captain Smith in planting and sustaining the English colony with the deeds of President Roosevelt in this generation and declared they were "as worthy 'of glorification, but lacked the aid of the newspaper press that had so greatly helped Ihe latter in his upward career." The newspapers, the speaker de clared have given Mr. Roosevelt their vigorous support in' his reform poli cies; have exploited all his sayings and doings through the 24 hours of tha day; glorified the man and his work and made his name a house hold word in every home in the land. Mr. lioosevelt nas seemed somewhat slow in acknowledging his indebted ness to the . press,' Mr. Noyes said, but perhaps he will think of it some day when he is not too busy." The first appearance of the reporter Mr. Noyes declared,, was when Joseph Gath of the National Intelligencer, 'covered" Daniel ., Webster's reply to Hayne. On Friendly Terms. In discussing the attitude toward the press of "our rulers, state and national" the speaker declared that they have, with two or three except ions, been on friendly terms with the newspaper men. In discussing Presi dent Roosevelt's attitude, he said: He has declared himself In favor of clean, healthy newspapers, with clean, healthy criticisms, which shall be fear less and truthful, "but when it comes to the test it is seen that he does not relish the fearless and truthful criti cisims when they are exercised at his expense. But the newspaper men have no quarrel with the president. There is some friction between them. but no rupture: and Secretary Loeb dispenses the White House news with tact and intelligence. Mr. Roosevelt has no real animos ity toward the press and I fancy he has no keener enjoyment in lifev than in association witn bright newspaper men; as, for instance, at a Gridiron dlnner when after a busy day super intending the affairs of the universe, he drops in upon these entertainments and enters into the spirit of the oc casion with all the glee of a school boy Just let out for the holidays and his laughter is the heartiest to be heard wheirhe Gridiron boys are giv ing him a pretty hot roast over some of his official eccentricities. - "After, all.
