Miss Sophia Grossardt came down from Great Bend Saturday morning for a wesk3 vacation at home. She is attending college at that place. The band boy drove out to Mr. Patzner's farm, Sunday afternoon and helped him dedicate his new barn. To eay he treated the boys good, is stating it mild; An immense amount of wheat is being marketed here this week. Why the farmers are rushing the wheat to market, and at the same time staring a wheat famine in the face is more than we can comprehend. You bad better be' a good honest and upright man of the world, than a hypocritical church member Hones, ty aud straight-forwardness are virtues within themselves; and if you fiave them cot, the church will not save you, nor screen your doings from the sight of the Lord when the judg ment day comes. A young man who had been sound ly converted at a Methodist revival declared that all pride and self-conceit had been taken out of his heart.

From Saturday morning until Tues day evening upward of 20,000 bushels of wheat was marketed at damn. There won't be mnch daDger of the wheat falling this year unless the heads get so long and heavy that they make a hole m the ground. Diseases of the eye or ear treated. and spectacles fitted. Call at Hotel Greene, Great Bend, June 10th, 11th and 12th. In case of surgical opera tions be sure and call early in order that time for operation may be fised. From "Cit'aen." The biggest rain of the season feii ! here last Friday night. Now the earth has plenty of moie tnre to make the wheat fill in good shape. We predict in twenty more days from! this date wheat will be ready for the scycle. Henry Boyle and his .nephew, W. W. Boyle were trading in this town Saturday last.

John is young in yeais, but will make as good or better jurist than many older men. It may be that' some time during the present season a certain party or company will erect a large store build ing in this town. More competition. Henry Brack of Grant, a brother of Peter, was here Saturday figuring on buying a harvester. Henry reports much of his wheat as being fairly good . Mrs. Shiner, who formerly lived in Grant township, but of late years in the Strip, came in from that country on a short visit last week. She reports crops in the Strip O. E. At present the owner of cattle and especially young calves after losing a few teels the loss, as one good three months old is worth to the owner as much as five or ten acres of his wheat. Last week this writer reported John Porter as losing some ' calves with what was thought to be black leg. Since then several more have died, John has got some vaccine and will use it on the balance of his herd as a preventative. If a neighbor meets a neighbor and bids him the time of day and he an swers with a sarcastic look or a hog grunt. If you examine that man be hind his ears you will find hard lumps the size of hen eggs there. These lumps indicate self esteem and means in that lumpers opinion that it's big I and little u. There are plenty men t$ be found most any day who are just built in that way, who imagine they are some pumpkins when in seality they are not yet good squash. To all such people as these turn your left cold shoulder and bid them pass on their way rejoicing. c t if Flu's E u w 7 It is all right -we know they think so from the wray it sells.
