The Hoxie Sentinel was 24 years old last week, and the paper celebrated the event by going to more paid sub scribers than any other paper in Sheri dan county has ever had. In view of the fact that Osborne is after the !Sixth district Republican convention with chances in favor of securing it. both her papers have made great improvements, the Farmer hav ing clothed itself In a beautiful new suit, while the News has been enlarged to a six column Quarto. The big surprise in Atwood for many years-was-the marriag-e of Joim; M. Burton, president of the Rawlins County State bank, to Mrs. Sarah L. Binning of Watseka, 111., for many years a former resident of Atwood and Rawlins county. Everybody who knew him supposed John Burton would always be content to live in bachelorhood. The Atwood Square Deal says of him: "The eroom has long been connected with the Rawlins County bank, as its sole owner while a private institution and as its presi dent since its organization under the state banking law3, and in that capaci ty has formed an acquaintanceship embracing the bulk of our business and farming population. He is uni versally respected as an honest, hon orable man, safe and reliable, exacting that which is his due, but readily giv ing that which is another's. Not osten tatious in his benefactions, we daily almost hear of acts of deserved help fulness which reflect credit on both his head and heart." Jewell county statistics always read good. The farmers' wives, especially, are doing good work. They sold, in 1906, about $52,000 worth of cream, and a little less than 621.000 pounds of butter, besides $285. 583 worth of eggs and poultry. The husbands, too. have been busy. They have planted 188.444 acres In corn, and have 48,916 acres in alfalfa. They also have, if they gave the correct number to the asses sors. 69,749 head of hogs and 19,580 horses. Goodland is going to celebrate her twentieth anniversary September 5, 6 and 7. There will be four days of spe cial interest, the first, Sherman county day, followed by Colorado day, north west liansas day and the last, carnival day. Every day will be a picnic of especial Interest, and many notable features will be represented. The celebration is well under way, the sev eral committees being at work on en tertaining programmes for every day. For any particulars of the celebration information will be furnished by W. A. Smith, secretary of the Commerical club. One of the leading business men in Norton Is of the opinion that 90 per CLEVER DOCTOR Cured a 20 Years Trouble Without Any Medicine. A Wise Indiana physician cured a SO-years st-jmach disease without any medicine as his patient tells: "I had stomach trouble for 20 years, t r i rtrmtnr-s md iflnR nntpnt rr-i o r i cines and all simple remedies suggest ed, by my friends but grew worse all the time. "Finally a doctor who Is the most prominent physician in this part' of the State told me medicine would do me no good only irritate my stomach I and make it worjo that I must look to diei. and quit drinking coffee. "I cried out In alarm. 'Quit drink ing Coffee!' why, 'What will I drink?' " 'Try Postum,' said the doctor, 'I drink It and you will like it when It is made according to directions, and served with cream, for it is delicious and has none of the bad effects cof fee has ' "Well that was over two years ago and I am still drinking Postum. My stomach is right again and I know Doctor hit the nail on the head when he decided coffee was the cause of all my trouble. I only wish I had quit it years ago and drank Postum in its place." Never too late to mend. Ten days' trial of Po3tum In place of coffee works wonders. "There's a Reason." Read the famous little book, "The Road to Wellvllle." In pkgs. Physi sians call It "A little health classic." Grocery and GEO. C. BEACH, Prop. Grocery and 233 216 cent of the money made in his town on real estate in the last three years has been made by the retired farmers who have come to town to make their homes. Home grown strawberries way out in Gove county are so plentiful that tney are not considered much of a lux ury. Mr. and Mrs. W. J. Evans have raised a large crop of them this year. If the Gove City Republican-Gazette is correct in its statement, then Gove county is on the eve of a county seat fight. As crops are a little shy In that county this year, the people will have more time to talk up the matter, and all her business men have put goods boxes in front of their stores so coun ty seat agitators can sit down and whittle on the boxes and discuss coun ty seat removal matters. Somehow way out in Atwood and Rawlins county things are different than they are in other Sixth district towns. This from the Atwood Patriot: "John Ratcliff was showing a twig from a cherry tree on which were two blossoms that contained two en tirely separate and distinct cherries to each blossom. These blossoms came out after the late frosts and he says there are several more like the above on the same tree which give everv rromtse of maturing into full sized and perfect cherries. Cherries in clusters are very common, but two cherries in one blossom is something we have never seen before. Mr. Rat cliff and several other men who have noticed the bearing of fruit trees for many years say they have never beforo witnessed two entirely separate and distinct cherries to one blossom." The business men of Downs have subscribed $1,000 for the support of a home baseball team. A pearl, said to be worth $75 bv an expert jeweler at Colby, was found on opening a can of oysters at the Opelt hotel. This hotel is one of the most noted In northwestern Kansas. . More congressmen have been made and de feated in this hotel than in any other In the Sixth district. And yet they j buy oysters by the case. and find i pearls thrown in for good measure. If such things as this are going to hap pen most any old time, the several candidates who want to succeed Con gressman Reeder ought to work for Colby for the convention The total deposits in the nine banks in Norton county will reach about $1, 1501000. Of this, the three banks In Nor ton will reach close to $800,000. Russell county has graduated five lawyers at the state university. A man named Crank will open a law office in Hill City. There is something in a name, and it maybe that Crank will w;r out. Miss Olive Kackley. ex-regifter of deeds of Graham county. Is attending an elocutionary school In New York. In one week, recently, she. recited several selections In the Baptist church, one of the largest in Brooklyn. Atwood Is going to have another hotel. commodious and modern, at a co?t of about $15,000. As far back as 1888. Sherman county had six newspapers. Today, with more prosperity end larger towns, the county has only two, ana these are published in Goodland It is said that Fred Castle, one of the most popular traveling men on the road, and a member of Norton council tT. C. T., owns and lives in the cost liest and most modern residence In hi: town. Besides, he is the owner of one of the best autos, and when he is in hurry he travels in his automobile. He is also manager of the Norton baseball team, of TJ. C. T. men exclusively, who play a match game of baspball in Elm wood park, in Norton, June 29. with a like team from the Holdrege. Neb., council. . The game will be hotly con tested. Building has been so brisk in Norton for the last three years that a fourth lumber yard is being talked of by the Norton county farmers. The Kensington people are talking already for their 20th anniversary cele bration this fall. They have so much prosperity in that Smith county town for several years they doa't mind if the crops are a little short. One of the prettiest of publications -was. issued recently from the office of the. Oakley Graphic. It is a booklet of several pages edited by the junior class of the Oakley school. The first article signed by the Juniors, Is entitled, "Foreword." and says: "For a booklet published in a land where the buffalo grass carpets the prairies and the even line of the horizon is seldom marred; where the mirage is a common sight and the song of the woodbird is never heard; we deem the 'Plainsman's' a fit ting title. If this modest booklet arouses within anyone the desire for an educa tion or brings the patrons and the school into closer touch with each other, we rest content, feeling well paid." The Graham county assessors for 1907 show that Hill City, the county seat, has a population of 711, and the counts' 7,450. Also that the county has 7,397 acres of alfalfa, 388.488 bushels of old corn xm hand and over $400,000 deposits in the banks of that county. The re turns of the assessors show up better than for many years. Oarnegries Start for The Hague. -Kiel. Germany, June 24.

Hodgins Umpires Ball Game With a Blunderbuss. Old Mother Luck held an umbrella over the fruit Jobbers and their friends Saturday. It rained elsewhere, but it did not rain at McFarland, where the joyful jobbers congregated to hold their second annual picnic. Therefore one of the managers may be pardoned for his bold assertion that, had the picnic been held elsewhere, it would have rained at McFarland. The jobbers' . special, consist! nar of three coaclus and a hBesn car aft Topeka in the isin, also in the morning. Said special ran through miles of rain which, .seemed intent on, follow! n it- the track, and then emerced .liunminghlnn and McFarland, the chosen SDot. - Over 300 guests - left Topeka on the special, and others dropped off of ev ery westbound train during the day. The event was held on the 2,000 acre Rock island ranch, south of the sta tion, and a natural picnic ground. It took five trips . with a large dray to haul the provender and accoutrements from the car to the park. Camp chairs ror everyDoay, Iruit, flowers, table ware. everything was on hand. Noth ing had been overlooked. The stew ard arrived on the ground the day be fore, and with a corps of assistants had made ready for the picnickers. As the supplies were unloaded, every nonattached man volunteered to help spread the sarao. Too many volunteers caused a congestion of labor such as is experienced on the Rock Island section gangs when 57 Mexicans get busy shov ellng dirt into one wheelbarrow. There fore Mr. S. E. Lux, grand highmtick of the day, procured a club and thinned out the volunteers so that the ladies and competent workers could proceed with the distribution. Plenty to Eat. The principal feature of that al fresco lunch was the remarkable com binatlon of quantity and quality which prevailed. With 300 people In sight, the stewards spread upon the long tables .anas sufficiently fine to tickle the pal- i'te of the epicure, and sufficiently numerous to destroy all the hunger microbes in a thousand hired men The bill of fare was not mapped out but it want something like this: Salad the real thing), deviled eggs, coffee, six kinds of meat, bread and butter, H monads, more coffee, potato chips nine kinds of cake, a wagon load of Ice cream. By repeating this rapidly half a dozen times and Inserting anything you think of that is good to eat, you will get some Idea of that bill of fare. This high living seems to be a habit with the Topeka fruit Jobbers. Last year another reporter chaperoned the party, which met at Pauline, and he brought in the same kind of report of "oceans or reed. it was certainly true in this case, and after the lunch, when the jobbers and their guests were as sembled at the baseball diamond, watching a hot game between the Job bers and the Rock Island clerical force, youthful natives of the Jungles there Anchored Dentures We have a method of replacing lost teeth by an Anchored Denture, an ap pliance which is similar to a partial gold plate, but which is so constructed that it can be attached to the natural teeth and readily removed for cleans ing by frhe patient. This Denture is particularly applicable in cases where all or part of the back teeth have been lost either in the upper or lower jaw. It. is less cumbersome and far more comfortable than the ordinary plate and can be used where it is Impossible to put in a bridge, either where the natural teeth are too loose for bridge work or where there Is no back tooth left for an abutment. - Please call and let us explain it to you. LUX & LUX, Dentists. . . 803 Kansas Arc Ind. Tel. 641 abouts raided the provender. They toted away Ice cream in pails and on the end of boards. ' Sevfep. crates of ripe tomatoes, left over from the repast might be vegetable-in tne" dlctlonary.but it was "fruit for tne raiders. " Aw, what's the odds," sald'tjne of the boss jobbers as the train headed for To peka. "Let us not roast the Wabaun see county kids for swiping that stuff. Let us rather feppe that they enjoyed it. and did not waste all the tomatoes throwing them at each other." The jobber who thus philosophized had giv en up about $100 worth- of fruit and vegetation for the spread, and purchas ed tjver $65 worth . of railroad tickets for his employes and their friends. The picnic, as before stated, was held on the Rock Island ranch. This ranch boasts one of the finest natural springs in that county and the same is near the picnic grounds. A few sheep and goats now occupy the grounds. These animals buttr in after the natives had helped "clear away," and dosed the incident by eating the wooden pie -dishes and pa per napkins, thus having the grounds In excellent condition for the- next pic nic. Mr. Chick Morton, of the Rock ISrr! and, who wis one of the guests of the day, stated positively that the ' Rock Island company kept sheep and goats In that 2.0C0 acre pasture for this pur pose alone, as they insured a clean pic nic ground at any time. The Goats Clean V'y tbe Park. , Several railroad 'officials and their families enjoyed the hospitality of tho fruit jobbers. Other dead-heads were a local reporter and G A. Gurley, of Kan sas City, owner of.' the "Kansas City Packer," and three other publications on the same subject, which are publish ed at Cincinnati, Chicago and New York. Mr. Gurley is one of. the best known trade-paper editors in' the west, and a favorite with the fruit Jobbers. As the lunch was: drawing to a close, and just as Mr. Lux, floor manager of the jamboree was lamenting the fact that some of the Kansas City guests had failed to arrive, Mr. and Mrs. C. C. Bowlus of Kansas City, came from the depot Mr. Bowlus handles about the largest banana jobbing business In the west. Other fruit' Jobbers from Kansas City were Peter Michaels and W. L. Grush. , ." ' The railroad officials present were j. C. Fulton, local freight agent of the tT. P. J. Vance, contracting agent of the U.' P., "Chick" Morton, division passen ger agent of the Rock Island, O.

This game, -however, was.,not the . real feature of -the day. The real thing with trimmings was the .game, between the boss Jobbers and their lady employes. This was also one of the strong features of last year's picnic, and Dick Hodgins, who umpired the game, came home In a pair of gumboots and a blanket, having been 'Hrimmed" by the' jobbers for fav oring the' ladles in his decisions. ' As the excursion train pulleAout of Topeka, it was noticeable that Hodgins, who was slated as umpire for the sensational game, had a mysterious package' wrap ped in a gunny sack. As he walked onto the diamond as-the ladies'; game Dick Houdgins. Armed With a Blun derbuss, Acts as Umyire. was called,- he calmly unrolled this package and exposed' an ancient bell mouthed blunderbuss" with a bayonet attached. It was the prehistoric tool with -which his Fenian forbears were wont to go gunning for gaugers in Ould Ireland. Setting the bayonet at a dangerous angle, Dick delivered the fol lowing address: "Ladie3 and fruit jobbers: Last year I umpired this game and got the -worst of it. This' year I shall umpire this gamv, and incidentally run this Instrument through any fool fruit juggler who monkeys with me. Play ball!". Several times during the fracas which followed, the Jobbers attempted to flank the umpire, but he drove them back with fixed bayonet. ' His decisions were; like woman fearfully and wonderfully made. With the men at bat a home run was branded as -a foul and the run ner declared out.When Mr. Armstrong, president of the Fruit Jobbers' associa tion and pitcher for the nine, tried to field little grounders Hodgins never failed to step on his neck In moving around to a point where he could ob serve the play. The game ended fair and warmer with, at score of 15 to 0 in favor of the iadis. The following is the lineup for the two games of baseball: Rock Island. Jobbers. Kelly, 3b. ' Snap, cf . Fagan, If. H.

Telephone Girls Were There. Afnong the special guests of the Fruit. Jobbers, were a score of. young ladies from the two local telephone ex changes. Their kindness and patience in handling the thousands of telephone calls for the Fruit Jobbers during the past year" was rewarded by an invita tion" to take a picnic as the suests of these gentlemen, and from the many thanks extended to their hosts. it may be judged that they enjoyed the day. The special train returned to To peka about sundown with every car nlred W-Ith happy picnickers, who votea the affair the success of the season. The Fruit Jobbers'; picnic was with out a single incident to jar upon tho nerves of the most -fastidious.

Excellent coffee and lemonade were the only beverages inauigea m bv anv of thegu'ests. This seems to back -up the assertion made by a prom inent fruit Jobber that decent treat ment of employes is the solution to social equality.- 1 Perhans- the last page or tne printea programme might furnish a valuable hunch to other employers, ii reauu as follows": - "These annual outings are given by the Topeka Fruit Jobbers as an appre elation to their employes in recogni tlon of the services rendered during the other 364 days of the year.

Rioting in Lisbon and the City Full of Troops. - Paris, June 24. Owing to the strict censorship which has been establish ed in Lisbon it is difficult to obtain the details of the uprising of the Portu guese, people, but enough has leaked through to make it known that King Carlos is in danger of losing his throne. Rioting continues In Lisbon and the city is full of troops. . Cavalry men patrol all the streets and the king stays close to his palace. He has made no statement of what he intend ed to do. The feeling against him is bitter because of his abolishing the constitutional guarantee. His answer to the agitation against the abridge ment of the liberties of the people nas been a decree authorizing the civil governor of Lisbon to suspend news papers which incite aisoraer. The country had a parliament many years, but the king is credited with, a desire to rule without a national legis lature. Last Friday a large crowd started for the palace of the king to make a demonstration against him. They were met by cavalry and ordered to disperse. Several revolver shots came from, the crowd and a trooper was wounded.? ,The soldiers charged and the mob answered with more re volver shots. Two rioters were killed and about 100 were injured by the trampling horses. '' While the" fJgbtlHg was --going on in the streets the" 'members of the mob raided the principal, cafes of the city, where they armd themselves with bludgeons improvised from the iron and marble drinking tablets.- Bottles and other- objects :were , seized ,, and with these the rioters again attacked the police and troops in the streets. They were driven off by a cavalry charge. . Time changes, all things change but the J. " R. S. cigars never- change. They are always the same.
