John Welch, a Jealous Husband, Uses a Hun. ON F1R GROUNDS LAST NIGHT The only unpleasant thing that has j occurred to mar the .pleasures of F.ir eeK, was a shooting which occurred on the grounds last night, about 11 'clock. Trouble has been brewing for several days between John Welch, his father, H. Welch, who run the Valley- house and the saloon adjoining it, and a man whose name we cannot learn, but has been given as Brooks, or Brucks. Others sav his name is Harry Drake, and his home Coffey- ille, Kan. The latter had been work ing as cook for the Welch's, and they claim he had been on undue intimacy with John Welch's wife. About 11 last night Welch appeared on the fait grounds, and finding his wife and the cook together, he began "shooting, in the crowd in the vicinity of the merry go rouna. u.ie snot struck the man in the back, and was fired at su:h 'close range that the coat was set on fire. The bullet entered near the center of the back, ranged up and came out at the back of the shoulder. Another shot struck Mrs. Welch in the cheek, ranging upwards and lod ing ir? her head. A third shot struck Mrs. Geo. Horine, sister of Mrs Webh, in the arm, near the wrist, and came out above the eloow. She had a baby in her arms, but it was not hurt. It appears to have been Welch's in tention to shoot all these people. A bystander, Madam Reno, who had a fortune telling booth on the grounds, received one bullet in her hip and sustained a bad wound. Ail the wounded were immediately brought to town, and are under the surgeon's care. We understand that none of the wounds will necessarily prove fatal. Officers Dimon and Randall im mediately put Welch under arrest and he will have to stand 'trial for at tempted murder, and possibly manslaughter. j For Sale.

C jLuse and family, and to take in the I Barton County fair. It is unfortunate that some minor men did not select some of the stuff at the Barton county fair and pre pare an exhibit for the county at the State Fair at Hutchinson. The next fair in this circuit is the Rice county fair, opening at Sterling on Monday, the 4;h. McPherson follows, on the Uth, and the state fair at Hutchinson on the 18th. The second annual session of the South western District Missionaiv Baptist Association and Women' Auxiliaries, of Kansas (colored) will open at the First Baptist church, this city, Monday, Sept. 5th. There were a tough lot of '-lungers- on which have been following the fair circuit, and were at St. John; but when they struck Great Bend they were spotted 'by the officers, and were not able to do much of their monkey business here. We hear of two men who had their pockets picked on the fair grounds, but noth ing of the kind was reported to the fair people. The 1905 Barton County Fair, and its successful termination, has been an object lesson in proving the value of judicial advertising. 0 The secretary was given free rein, general ly, in that direction, and he has been untiring in his efforts to bring before the people the fact the premiums would be worthly of striving for, the attractions the best procurable and all tie features first class. And it has paid. The usual foam and froth, the aftermath, the "I told you so's" and the "ought to have done it different" are bobbing up'since the close of the fair. But as these things are always expected in any community where cranks are not barred, there will be little attention given to the kickers. The progressive citizen always does the best he knows bow, according to his light opportunity, and invites cc ODeratinn aad advice. hiit"rvnri: r no time in knockin on W th rthr . reiiow nas done or lett .undone. i rusa and vim is what counts. "ONLY TWO miNSA tEa" Objection Offered by Missouriani to th State s First Railroad.1 "The crusade against automobiles in gome of the rural districts of Missouri is not any more ridiculous jlhaa the opppsuon some of the pio neerr men too monifested against the railroads coming through; " !Dorthern,Missouri in the '50'4''' said jvKKu.l)4,tWM uwpui the county. "When the Hanibal k St. Joseph railroadwas projected through tfa section by Governor Stewart there were curious objections raised. learned circuit judge remarked that the enterprise was nothing but a ankee scheme. He said that if the road were built which he verv much doubted it would run onlv two trains a year, one during the summer, ad one in the fall, and that the rates for transportation would be so high and the method of travel so danger- Pus lhat peop'e would continue to ely on ox and mule teams instead of patronizing the railroad, He pre sented the further objection that in rainy weather the rails would be covered with mud and it would be impossible to haul trains over them. "Over at Linneus, a good town Sur rounded then by many large tobacco plantations, the planters Reared that the railroad wo jld deprive them of their negroes, who would take ad- antageofthe opportunity to get out of the country on freight cars. Then it was said that the engines would burn up all the timber in a few years and leave nothing to build houses and make rail fences of. Of course, you understand, that these objectors were in a minority. There were plenty of progressive men in the country who, while admitting the truth of some of these objections, yet saw counter ad vantages of such great value that the disadvantages named seemed trivial" Macon, Mo., Democrat. The Way to Do It. The Abilene Reflector quotes an advertiser as giving this helpful sug gestion: -If 1 want to get well ac quainted with a man to whom I have been introduced I spiak to him every time I meet him. If I spoke to him but once and then passed him by without recognition the next time I saw him, and continued to pass by him without speaking, or perhaps speak to him two or three times year, we wouldn't get to know each other very well. That's the way I look at this -advertising business; wnen l want the dealers of a certain territory to get so familiar with me they will think of me whenever they are in need of'goods in my line. I want to speak to them in every issue of the paper they get." A Pickpocket Nabbed. rriday afternoon Mrs. Geppge Spencer, one of the assistants in the art hall at the fair, saw a fellow hide a pocketbook.' Later a man missed his pocketbook'containing about $100 and some papers. The one that had been hid was found to be the missing one, but the money had gone. Mrs. Spencer went out with the sheriff, and soon pointed out the man who had hid the pocketbook. Only about $30 was found in his possession, and he will be called upon to answer to the charge of robbery, in the courts, Some Valuable Prizes.
