BARTON COUNTY BEMOGBAT.
IANOPCai & STOKE, Editors and Propi letor. OFFICE IN OPERA HOUSE BLOCK. GREAT BEND. KANSAS LOCAL NEWS Plans without "number are advanced to fix ap the park. being Another of Larned's druggists have gone to jail to serve out his term. Charles Chamberlain is building an elegant residence in the south-east part of town. The amount of work transacted each day in the Lamed land office is surprisingly large. The county printing is again being considered by the board of county commissioners. G.'N. & E. R. Moses have bought the brick stable property of 3Ioses Brothers & "Winstead. Mr. W. W. P. Clement is going to put down a handsome flag: stone walk in front of his Broadway property. Brooker Bro's have bought out the v marble yard of Mr. T. F. Brown, of Lamed, aud moved his stock down to the Bend. Died On Friday evening. May 27, at 11:30 n. m., Charlie, the infant son of Will E. and Ora Hays, aged 2 years, 3 months and 3 days. Several citizens say that our band boys did themselves and city great ' honor in their playing at Ellinwood at the re-union. They never played bet ter. Mr. Wallace has rented the John Alefs residence property and will soon go to house-keeping again. Mrs. Wallace is expected back in a week or two. Mr. C. Kinnison, of Bedfor j iowa, stopped off the C, K. & W . to see liis friend, Dr. Connett. LKean others, he is favorably imr,ressed with our town and county. Mr, Yj& Y$ard and Miss Addie Porker, both of Great Bend, were , married on. NVednesday evening at the residence of Justice John W. Brown, by Rev. S. H. Enyeart. The grand Central (we have heard that it will wear that name)is going up on south side of square, and when completed it will be one of the hand somest structures to be found in Kansas. The Knights of Pythias held their election of officers Thursday eve. They had one of the most interesting meet ings of the year, and a large atten dance. D. A. , Banta was elected C. C, O. V. Dodge, V. C, and Rube Charles Prelate. Growing crops between here and Lamed look well. Even wheat we are inclined to suspect, will agreeably disappoint the farmers and make a fair crop. All the farmers, if one may judge by appearances, are pros pering. ' Everything on a Kansas,' farm some how always wears a thrifty look. On Thursday last Max Mather, of Grant township, was bitten by a small dog supposed to be mad. Max pro- ceeded to "kick the stuffin" out of the animal and then came immediately to Great Bend. He visited N. R. Holmes, who applied his mad stone, but as the stone would not adhere to the wound it is believed the dog was not rabbid. Pawnee Rock is certainly improv ing at a rapid rate. We passed through the town Friday and were simply surprised at the multiplying evidences of prosperity. It may be that we over rate the growth of the town, but we were surprised at what we observed from a car window ancj, no doubt, if we should go through the streets, our surprise would be greater. Our street cars, water works, normal college and $50,000 depot are coming, and, along with them, people by the hundreds; good enterprising people; those who have money and are not afraid to spend it, and know a good thing when they see it. Dc n't listen to the curbstone croaker when he says times are slack; quite a number of good sales were , made yesterday. Go into our real estate offices ancl see what is being done. We are informed by real estate men that the transfers for the next three months will surpass anything in the history of CJreat Bend. So if 3 011 have property to sell, let it be known; if you want to "buy, let it be known. Don't miss a chancer to make a few hundred dollars, for it may not occur again within a lifetime.

The park question is still exciting much comment. The exercises at the opera house last Saturday were decidedly interest ing. .Liarnea is busily making prepor- ations for the errand Celebration of the 4th. A. S. Allen of this place and Dunn & Reigle of Ellinwood were granted permits last Saturday. As every spike is driven in Jthe street car line it clinches more se curely our permanent boom. Some of the "old settlers" have not vet srot throurh talking- about the recent reunion at Ellinwood. Prof. Hullock, of Sterling, deliv ered quite an interestins: addres3 be fore the Industrial exposition Sat urday. Moss & Swift 'nave torn out their old ice box and are put ting in a large and conimodius one, of the latest im proved make. R. F. Pleger and -fife return d Friday from their visit if some weeks in the East, both feeling much better for the vacation. The circus is cornluc The chil dren are ail anxious to see the ani mals, and the only -way to manage this matter is for the parents to take the children. Our townsman D. C. Luce received a very handsome watch guard on his birthday last Saturday. The present was made by his wile. Have "you worked your, poll tax? If not, give the street commissioner a ma'a and let him go on with the good work of improving our streets. Messrs. Levi Hair Uml family, J. W. Hair and B. F. Sanders, ;ill from Iola, Mich., relatives of Milton Sell, arrived in Great Bend last week to remain per manently. W. C. Bradshaw, of Olmitz, was in toOsaturday. He says that the re cent rain'j have greatly improyed wheat prospects while corn is as good as could be expected at this season. .A new boy at the home of Chas. W oods, our school janitor, Sunday doming, is the latest arrival noted. All parties concerned are getting along nicely. Saturday was another great day for our merchants. A large number of farmers came to town and they each and every one seemed to want some thing in the way of merchandise. Dodge & Co. have recieved the plumbing for the water works com pany, with the exclusive right to tap their main pipes for the purpose of putting in laterals. The water works company have the foundation in for their engine Louse. They are busily putting in the wells, and we hope soon to see them at work laying the pipes. J. A. Sterett returned from a five days' visit up the Walnut valley. He reports the towns up in that vicinity in a progressive state. Mr. Sterett brought home with him a piece of petrified buffalo meat, which looks good enough to eat. And "the flowers, thejr bloom in the morning," and the devoted lover visiteth the landlady's garden and the garden of the neighbors of his land lady, and he picketh a boquet with tb e eagerness of a cow in a clover p-atch, and he adorneth his seersucker 'therewith and marcheth down the street, and the boot-black cryeth out: "See 'er sucker!" The open-air concert by the Citi zens' band Saturday evening was en joyed by a large and appreciative concourse of people. The west side of Main from the opera block to Al len's corner was crowded with de lighted listeners, and the crowd of boys and men perched upon the cour yard fence were as appreciative as the front row in a circus pavillion. The band deserves .the thanks of the citi zens. We would like to see our base ball club tackle some of the "fly"' clubs over on the K. P. road. Manager Typer can remember the time when a summer did not pass without games being played between Great Bend and our Northern neighbors. Those good old base ball days, when Clayt and Ed Moses, Jim Clayton and others of the pioneer boys tackled the K. P. lads, call for a renewal of acquaint ance between the people on the two roads. FROM CLARENCE. The crops are looking nicely. Mr. Martin's residence ''takes the cake." Work is being rapidly pushed upon Mr. Jurgensen's new house. Frank Tammin harnessed the wind Saturday with a new wind mill. C. Reeder and II. Carstensen went down to Kansas' future capital, Satur day. Mr. II. Gagerman has improved his place with a fence and is now prepar ing to erect a large residence. Miss Mary Webster came out from the Bend, Thursday, and spent the day pleasantly with relatives. Mr. Hugo Folkerts has returned from Rush county, where lie has claim. He reports a heavy rain there so it is inf erred that tilings are getting along smilingly. Yaas, it itliextwemely dangerwous heaw, but if the "missing link" would come now and be pweseuted to his lion ship, he would suawly swoon when yoaw gran dm aw buwsts upon him, and thus easily be made a captive. Last Friday, the citizens of Clarence and adjoining townships, to the num ber of one hundred, assembled at the delightful grove of Mr. J. Both's, and enjoyed a royal .good time. Our fair cuisines came with baskets overflowing with good things, -which, alter being properly discussed, was succeeded by the sound of the hammer, which indi cated that a. platform was being con structed bv the gallants, who after wards led the beautiful damsels upon it and "tripped the light fantastic toe until the wee sma' hours," with Heav en's blue dome for a roof, and emerald trees as walls. Several swings and an excellent croquet grounds was among the things to be enjoyed. The "Buck eye" saw the "Dude" there, and wasn't he "just killing?" Buckeye. An Important Discovery. A vein of coal from three to five feet in thickness has been discovered at Otis, this county, at a depth of 175 feet. Steps are being taken to organ ize a company to sink a shaft and de velop the supposed valuable mine. LaCrosse Democrat. The Morrison Bros. Hotel ready for the brick work.

Or Black Leprosy, la a disease whlcbis considered Incurable, but it has yielded to the curative proper ties of S wijt'b Srscino now known all overhe world as S. S. S. Mrs. Bailey, of West Somerville0 Mass., near Boston, was attacked several years ago with this hideous black eruption, and was treated by the best medical talent, who could on j say that tha disease was a species of 0 U lOSY- and consequently Incurable. It is impossible to de scribe her sufferings. Her body from fhcrown of her head to the soles of ht r feet was.a mass of decay, masses of flesh rouin off and lean; great carl ties. Her fingers festered and three or four nails dropped off at one time. Her limbs contracted by the fearful ulceration, and for several years she did not leav her bed. Her weight was reduced from 125 to 60 lbs. Perhaps some faint idea of her condition can b cleaned from the fact that three pounds of Cpsmo line or ointment were used per week in dressier her sores. Finally the physicians acknowledged their defeat by this Black Wolf, and commended the suf ferer to her all-wise Creator. Her husband hearing wonderful reports of the ut of Swift's Srsciric (S. S. S.), prevailed on her to try it as a last resort. She began its use under pro test, but soon found that her system was being re lieved of the poison, as the sores aBumcd a red and healthy color; as though the blood was becoming pure and active. Mrs. Bailey continued the . S. S. nntil last February; every sore was healed; she dis carded chair and crutches, and was for the first tima in twelve years a well woman. Her husband, Mr. C. A. Bailey, is in business at ttyg Blackstone Street. Boeton, and will take pleasure in giving the details f this wonderful cure. Send to ns for Treatistfcon Jood and Skin Diseases, mailed free.
