He has the grace to preside in it too. Mrs. E. Trask and Mrs. I.E. Pcrlcy have been very successful in obtaining sub scriptions for the new Congregational church, having raised about $5,500.

They go north to Junction City on the passenger this evening, en route for Denver, Colorado. Daily News, Aug. 12, The party who has written to the Com monwealth that "our corn is suffering for want of rain," had better pay a visit to some of the cornfields round about us ; he will find some ears, any one of which would be large enough to furnish a whole government team with a com plete outfit of those useful appendages. Almost any one can sell goods (on time), but the qualifications of a first-class collector are not to be found embodied in many mortals. There is, however, one man of our acquaintance who seems to have been "to the manor born." It is only necessary to give him the bill ; he will come betk ctA the money or a squibu lent. George w. Ooulding has Just pur- chased three elegible lots on West street in the neighborhood of the new railroad works, and will build a board ing house there. Mr. Goulding, by the way, is an enterprising citizen who has lately come here from the east and al ready doing a good business in meat marketing la the firm of Wright & Goulding. Jo Randolph desires to know how the fellow feels who carried off the shot from his grape patch Saturday night, and al so wishes to inquire whether he had just as leave bring them back when he gets them picked out.

Stow, Esq., gener al agent of the great European railroad show ot Sells Bros., is in the city making the necessary arrangement for a visit of tne exhibition to this city, and called on Tub News. The result of the call may be seen in our weekly edition. He is an old editor, a thorough believer in printer's ink, and an intelligent and agreeable gentleman. He represents one of the best shows extant, and gives am ple assurance that everything advertised will be "according to the bills." The most alarming results may be looked tor in the weather line.

There is some talk on the subject and the proposition to organize meets witli general support, and it is hoped all who favor the organization will be present. Most of the important towns in the state have such a company, and it is believed Emporia should have one. Every citi zen should feel a pride in the matter and assist and encourage the organization.

A gentleman of this city who was out in the neighborhood of Dow creek re cently reports that a peculiar disease, the exact nature of which cannot be deter mined, has been doing considerable dam age among the stock out there for the past two weeks, no less than twenty head having died within that time. The animal attacked begins to swell around the chest and shoulders, and in nearly every instance death ensues within twenty-four hours. Tiie disease seems to lie particularly acute with horses, though some cattle have succumbed to it. Meas ures have lieen taken to find nut the na ture of it, and If possible find a remedy. What They akk Doiko. Wibley & Henson have doubled the capacity of their store by erecting a tine stairway, and have opened au immense stock of men and boys' clothing, boots and shoes, on the second floor. Their first floor, 25 by 00 feet is devoted exclusively to sta ple and fancy dry goods, ladies and miss es shoes, nne millinery ana fancy arti cles. The basement of this establish ment is used for storage put poses for trunks, cotton-batting and bale goods. We learn from a reliable source that this firm have doubled their trade the post season, and with their increased capacity and large force of salesmen they employ, will open- the fall campaign with the largest stock in our city. Mr. and Mrs. Wibley are both east making their pur chases for the early fall trade. Many of their new goods are arriving daily, and as iast as the novelties of the season arc opened in New York they will be in tran sit for their counters at bottom prices for cash. w33tl-d23Stl An Ounce of Prevention is better than a pound of cure.

A fui r-sizcd audience gathered at the Congregational church on Saturday evening to listen to the readings of Miss Brace, of Leavenworth, who had been represented as the most accomplished reader in the state. Not having heard all of the aspirants for elocutionary hon ors that Kansas boasts of we arc not, per haps, competent to pronounce a verdict, but it seems to us that there is to be found in the young lady who entertain ed us on Saturday evening a grace of manner and an ability to faithfully por tray on author's meaning that would render it no easy task for a rival to cope with. The selections were well made and as well rendered, Tennyson's "Queen Mary," a selection from "Romeo and Juliet" and "My Dolly's Dead," noticeably so; but the gem of the evening was the recita tion, "Robert of Lincoln," astrange inter minglingof humor and pathos, anil which afforded ample scope for the display of the young lady's dramatic ability. She was equal to the task, and held her au dience in breathless interest to the end. The music provided was under the di rection of Mrs. Newman, who presided at the orgau. Miss Rtggs and Mrs. War ren sang, respectively, "Tender and True" and "Rock me to Sleep, Mother;" Miss Maggie Cordley and Messrs. II. E. Fox, H. Lewis and Chas. Fletcher sang, "Jennie, the Flower of Kihlare," very acceptably. As we have before stated the audience was fair-sized, but was nevertheless thor oughly appreciative, and we feel that an other visit from Miss Brace in the near future will be the signal for a full house to welcome the accomplished reader. young The College Meeting. The nui ting called in the interest of the proposed Presbyterian college for the state of Kansas, on Tuesday evening, was a very Interesting one, although not so largely attended as was hoped for. Jacob Stotler was called to the chair, and W. F. Chalfant, editor of the Led ger, acted as Secretary. Rev. Mr. Overstreet stated the object of the meeting. Speeches were made by Judge Peyton, Judge Cunningham, Dr. Cordley, E. S. Waterbury, Dr. Barnett, Mr. Wni. S. Jay and S. B. Riggs. All were enthusiastically in favor of the location of the college at this place. The great advantage its location would be to this city, Lyon and adjoining coun ties, was made very apparent. The Synod of Kansas asks for $20,000 from the town where the college will be located, for the purpose of defraying the expense of the first building. After the building is erected, the Synod will en dow the college with $25,000 to start with. It was thought $20,000 could easily be raised, and after some discus sion the following named gentlemen were appointed a committee to canvass this and adjacent counties for subscrip tions : C. V. Eskridge, L. Scvery, Judge E. B. Peyton, II. C. Cross, Doctor Bar nett, E. Borton, n. McCandliss, C. Hood, S. B. Riggs and T. J. Price. On motion, the meeting then adjourn ed. There is no doubt, with the propter effort, but what the necessary amount to secure the college at this place can be raised. We shall have more to say on the subject from time to time. 1 AKK .notice.

The Great Coming Railroad Aiauwment Kntcrprlse. Of the proprietors of "The Great Euro- penn seven elephant railroad menagerie ami circus, and the only one on earth," which is to exhibit at EmjMiria, on Wednesday, August 27th, the Louisville Courier Journal says: "The Sells' are princes in their way," which brief and ixiinted compliment sums up the character of their entire, immense and iiiatrnificieut exhibition. The press of every section unites in declaring it in deed princely from procession to pavil ions, and as pure as princely; as moral as miirhty. In animals and areuic- sen sations its possessions arc altogether too princely to le detailed within the scope of a local notice, and we leave that for the advertisements to do, whose repre sentations are amply sustained by hun dreds of after-notices, of whit-h tbe fol lowing are but a sample : The show was jevery thing claimed for iL Danville (111.) 1 imes. The audience retired well satisfied that for once, at least, thev had seen a circus troupe performed all it agreed to. Toledo (O.) Evening Bee.

The man or woman that stays away from the school meeting on Thursday next, will have no right to "kick" after wards. Russian water-proof blacking, for boots, something new, at M. W. Gib son's. We have just learned that the Ameri- cus notes were introduced into a Sunday sehiMl class last Sunday by tn enthu siastic teacher. Humboldt's iron-grasp cement, some thing new, at M. W. Gibson's. There were several shots fired in suc cession on Alain street below the post office late yesterday evening, and rush ing down we met Dr. T. A. Wright who informed us that a man had got shot. We failwl to learn his name, but Later. Tbe man got his shot from D. Tressler. Another lot of croquet at M. W. Gib. son's. The lightning rod fiend is still get. ting in his work. Only last week one of them put up a rml on the house of Mr. Steadman, on Allen creek the con tract having lieen made a few days pr -vious to put it up for nine dollars, but Mr. Steadman not being at home, the fiends put up a roil on a small kitchen telling Mrs. Steadman it would be not over six dollars, and when done pre sentcd a bill for $25. Fortunately Mr. Steadman had refused to sign an order for the rod. Now they can only bring suit on a book account. Mr. S. tendered them the $9 and gave them their choice to take that or go to the devil. They went away threatening to sue, but I do not believe there can be found a jury on the face of God's green earth'that will ever compel him to pay more than the agreed prUr $9. This is but a mild sample of hundreds of cases that have occurred in Lyon county thi season. We trust the time is coming when the honest farmer will rise in his might, and send all such swindlers to the peniten tiary where they belong. Keno. All persons knowing themselves in debted to me will please call and settle without delay, as my business must be closed tip at the very earliest day possi ble. J. D. Gibson. Wednesday, August 13.

Russian water proof harness, Cleaner & Dresser, something new, at M. W. Gibson's. Did you ever go a fishing? Well, its fun, don't it? We tried it yesterday, with a party of friends, and had a very pleasant time in fact, fishing is awfully jolly. To be sure I didn't catch any fish. but the ladies did, and it's more fun to see a lady catch four fish than to catch one yourself. The party was composed of Mr. and Mrs. Bond, Miss Walbridge Miss Cook, Miss Bond, Squire Miller, Mr. Cook, Mr. Willard and Keno. COUNTY CORRESPONDENCE. Plymouth. Tuesday, August 12, 1879. The corn is looking nicely. Most of it is too large for the "hoppers" to do it any harm; which makes farmers feel comfortable. Mr. George Hiatt met with quite an accident Sunday morning. While milk ing a young cow, she kicked him, inflict ed an ugly wound and breaking his jaw Dr. Milier tended on him and he seems to be pelting along as well as can be ex pected. Lamose. Hartford Happening. BY JINGO. Saturday, August 11. Hartford is still booming. Some ofthe loys are in Burlington to-day for base ball. What has become of the money raised to buy instruments for the Hartford band?. Some body ought to make re port. Hartford is the "boss" place for music. In our little city there are two pianos. twenty-one organs, and violins until you would think every house waj a house of music and every mun a fiddler,. and in the evening the sweet strains ring me lodiously upon the air. Can you make as good a showing as that, Keno? Monday, August 11. Dick WimkI has moved his house on his lots in the south part of town. Collins Bros, commenced work on the the new building of S. II.

Charles Shaver's new meat market recei veil a coat of paint yesterday, and is now ready for occupation. The people think of having, a soldiers reunion at this place in the course of a few weeks.

Mr. John Phipps and family started for Arkansas to-day. Good luck John. A. D. Buckley and family are now stopping at the Pruiss house. He still sells organs in this place. The new section boss has arrived and taken charge of the section, Andy Mun dy, the old boss, who was injured last spring, is still unable to do any labor. Hartford needs a good watch-maker. Let some enterprising man locate here, and he could obtain permanent work. Toledo Items. Wednesday, August 13. Hot days and cool nights. Green corn will soon he no more. And Ui-s.' harvest wilt soon be o'er. Mr. Henry Smith and family think of leaving Toledo soon. They are going back to Illinois.

The male population of Plymouth switch, commonly called "Smut," for short, has increased GO in the last few days. We expect they will incorporate before long. The diphtheria has broken out again. It seems as though we will never be free ot it. Mr. Oscar Coap left for Hartford, or near there, yesterday. We don't know what he went for, but suspicion he has gone down where his girl lives. Any way he is a good boy, and we would be glad to hear of his success anywhere. The community was pained to hear of the death, on last Thursday, of Mrs. Eliza Morgan. She has been a constant sufferer for over a year, during which time she has lecn under the care of kind friends and good physicians, everything done for her that was possible, yet her complaint mocked all earthly aid, and she died as she had lived, adevoted chris tian, a kind mother and sister, and her friends were all who knew her.
