If said taxes are not paid within that time, they will be returned as delinquent, or the penalties of the law will be otherwise eniorcea. JAMES SIMPSON, Street Commissioner. May 31st, 1875. lw SgyDavis has just received new stock of Summer Coats, Pants and Overalls. It will soon be time when flies an nov your team, and as most horses are on light feed they should be protected from these pests. Call on Newton and get fly nets. During this week the grasshoppers by the million could be seen up in the air. They arc on the move, and it is generally believed that they will soon all be out of this country. Mr. John Francis brought to this office last Saturday a stool of rye, grown on his farm by Calvin Hubbard, con taining fisty-two stalks about five feet and a half high, all from one grain. Our thanks are due our County Clerk, H. A. Needbam, for assistance in getting out the circulars for the Horse Fair. Mr. Needbam "sticks type" as though he had once worked for a living.

Needham, Secretary, Iola, Kansas. The grasshoppers are flying away and the wet weather is killing the chinch bugs, but the worthless dogs about our town seem to be on the increase. We wish our city fathers would go for them with the same zeal they have displayed on the license question. Dr. Knowlton, of Geneva, says that in coming to Iola last Tuesday he paid particular attention to the corn fields, and that excepting along the bottoms of Deer Creek there was a good stand. In the creek bottoms in many places the crops have been totally destroyed. The case of the State vs. Nathan Wheeler, was tried before Esquire Pul ver last Wednesday. The defendant was charged with assault and battery for whipping his former wife she is now the wife of another some year and a half ago. He plead guilty and pays a fine and costs. The reduction of fees and salaries has not lessened the number of aspirants for office in some counties in the State. In one county we notice that there are already sixteen candidates in the field for sheriff In this county we have heard of no candidates, but we presume we have a few persons who, at the re duced salaries, would be willing to take the offices. Judge Talcott deserves the thanks and good will of the whole people for the expeditious manner in which business has been disposed of before the District Court. He has maintained the session of the Court with constant regularity, continuing it from morning till noon and from noon till night without inter ruption, in no instance adjourning to serve or gratify any object or purpose foreign to the Court; and about half the time has held night sessions and thus hurried the work along. Wilton County Citizen. A few years ago the breeding of fast horses was confined almost entirely to the Southern States, but during the past ten years the business has been greatly developed and the horse fairs have spread all over the country. It is esti mated that in this country there is now offered at the annual summer racing meetings not less than $3,000,000 in purses for competition by fast horses. Well, following after the fashions, we are to have a horse fair at the fair grounds at Iola on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd of July. Leavenworth, Kans., June 1, 1S75. Editor Register: Will you please say to the subscribers for the State Sentinel in your city that an unavoidable accident caused me to lose the letter containing the list of sub scribers for the Sentinel from your city before I had been able ti transfer them to our regular mailing list, and that if they will kindly send in their names to this office I will sec to it that their pa pers are promptly forwarded and that they lose nothing by reason of the delay. A kindly insertion of this notice in your paper will do justice to Major Cal kins and the paper he represents, and will confer a favor upon David C. Beach, Editor Stale Sentinel. Our Police Judge has really com menced to keep books. The Marshal made two or three arrests this week, and holds himself in readiness to make more. When John intimates to a man that he wants him to go with him to Judge Bovd's office he had iust as well walk right along. The grasshopper scare is about over and the crop prospects are looking brighter, and the universal opinion now is that those persons who sacrificed their farms aud went to California have made the mistake of their lives. Real estate here is bound to increase in value. When you want to buy a good farm cheap, call on Bowl us. At the last meeting of the City Council the street Commissioner was instructed to bring suit against all per sons who neglect to work on the streets, or pay the cash, after being duly warn ed. Persons interested should read Mr. Simpson's notice among the "Local No tices." Walk up, gentlemen, with your shovel or your money. Judge Talcott returned home last Saturday evening from holding court in Wilson county. There, as elsewhere, the Judge" crowded the business right along and was ready to adjourn court more than a week earlier than was anticipa ted. His next place of holding court will be in Woodson county, at Defiance, commencing the 14th inst.

Whether the changes will result in the improve ment of our society and country remains to be seen. We hope the moral3 of our society will not retrograde. A Mr. Miller and family from Iowa arrived here some three weeks since. He intends settling with us. We give him a cordial welcome believing that he is a devoted christian and substantial citizen. Messrs. F. Root and Hedges start for Missouri this week hoping to benefit their financial conditions by trading their Kansas hard-pan for Missouri flint- stones. We trust they will not send any worse men than themselves to live among us. Also Messrs. J. R. Stillwagon and C. Eldridge start with their families to Iowa this week. Mr. S. takes some stock to sell, and possibly will return in the fall. Mr. E. will be missed very much as he is an active christian worker. Notwitstanding the grasshoppers, the Geneva belles and beaux were all out at a picnic on the Neosho near G. B. Inge's last Saturday. They spent a very pleas ant day boat-riding, swinging, etc No immersions, no limbs broken, nor lives lost during the day. The Geneva Glee Club, led by Rev. S. M. Irwin, are making very acceptable music now. As spelling matches are fashionable we need one here. We have recently received two notes requesting our "pres ants" at certain places. We have no such "ants." But this is equalled by the young gent who, in writing to a friend, expressed his admiration for the "girls' dries." We hope to be made glad soon by the departure of our friendly hoppergrasses. We can wipe our tearful eyes and bid them adieu. But now Mr. Rose-bug puts in his bid for what Mr. Grasshopper leaves. F. SALOON. Editor Register: I learn through your excellent paper that the City Council of Iola have granted license for a saloon in Iola. I wish tosay a few things to the citizens of Iola on this sub ject. The soil and climate of onrcounty we can recommend to emigrants as being very good. Our citizens for the most part are moral, sober, honest and intelli gent. It is the duty of each one of us to do what we can to increase the moral ity and sobriety of our citizens. By so doing we will not only increase our owe happiness, but we will invite teen and women of worth to settle among us. Do you suppose that this saloon will do any more for Iola than the beer garden and distillery? A. former citizen of Iola after visiting those places "in company with a couple of- the best dressed gentle men in town," said that they would probably be two of the' most popular institutions in town. I had a better opinion of Iola than to believe it. And to-day I believe that a large majority of the, citizens of Iola are opposed to having a saloon in town. It is rumored that some of the business men in town were in favor of having the saloon thinking that if they did not they would lose some of their customers. If there is a business man in Iola that thinks more of a toper's custom than he does of the sobri ety and morality of our young men and the custom of sober men I want.to know who he is because I would be afraid to trade with such a man, and there arc a great many men of the same opinion that I am. D. C. ADAMS. NOTICE TO SCHOOL DISTRICTS. Iola, Kansas, May 31, 1875. The Commissioners ot the State Per manent School Fund are buying School District Bonds at ninety cents' ou the dollar. Bonds made out on blanks prepared by the Commissioners, and payable, principal and coupons, at the office of the State Treasurer, at Topeka, are pre ferred.

School Districts should be advised to deal directly with the Board, and there by avoid paying commissions to middle men. The right to reject any or all bonds that may be presented to them, is re served by the Board. J. E. Bryan, Co. Supt of Pub. Ins'n. RELATING TO ROAD TAXES. Office of County Clerk, ) Allen County, Kas. J To Township Trustees and Road Overseers: In order to obviate the inconvenience to which tax payers, in Allen county, were subjected last winter, by being obliged to produce the Road Overseer's re ceipt to offset the Road Taxes charged upon the Tax Roll, I suggest that this year the old law be followed,-1. e., the Road Overseers will return to the Town ship Trustees their Road Tax lists, show ing thereon which amounts arc, paid and which are delinquent ;'vtbc' -Township Trustees will thercupon.dcnotr ,'upon the lists furnished them by the County Clerk, the amounts paid or delinquent, and re turn said lists, so marked, to the County Clerk. The Clerk will th?n place upon the Tax Roll only those amounts which are delinquent. i j- If the Road Overseers are careful to mark "paid" against the amounts which arc paid, this plan will ohviate the ne cessity of presenting receipts, only in cases where the road tax is paid or "worked out" after the Overseers have made their returns, when it will, of course, be necessary to have receipts. I do not advise, however, that the Over seers shall not give receipts to all, as the old law, even, required that receipts be given in every case; I mean that it will not be absolutely necessary for tax payers to have receipts to present to the County Treasurer, as was the case last winter; it would bo convenient to have a receipt in case the road tax might accidentally get upon the Tax Roll, after it had been paid to the Overseer or "worked out." Overseers will make their returns to the Trustees by Scptembct 1st, and the Trustees to the Clerk by September 15th. Very Respectfully, H. A. NEEDHAM, Cbunty Clerk. Iola, June 1st, 1875.
