Get up and be ahead of them. Judge McCne sustained the injunc tion to restrain the connty treasurer from paying over the Memphis rail way the $1000 appropriated by the council for the purpose of paying for the switch right of way. The thing now to do is to pat the question to a vote of the people, aud we think it will be carried by a large majority. The case relating to the ejection or retention of Samuel H. Smith as city attorney was not reached before J udge McCue on Monday last as intended. The judge was pushed for time and had to take a train In order to open court elsewhere. Accordingly ar rangements were made for the argu ment of the Smith-council oase at Os wego this (Satnrday) evening.

ThnrA Ttrna a irnod flttnndance at the meeting of stockholders of the butter and cheese factory enterprise Tuesday afternoou and a very interesting, har monious and profitable meeting was had. W. J. Turley was made chairman and W. G. Bates secretary, after which the minutes of the previous meeting were read and approved. The committee on location reported two acres purchased as stated in the News last week. On motion "The Baxter Springs Bntter and Cheese Factory" was cho sen as the name of the enterprise. Tho capital stock is placed at $10, 000, divided futo 100 shares of $100 each. On motion a committee of five was aDnoiutod bv the chair to select seven directors for the first year. .... a . . While the committee were preparing their renort Maior Hunt, manager of the Columbus creamery, made an in teresting aud instructive address set ting forth the advantages of this part of the couutry for the dairy business and giving a flattering report of tho business of the Columbus factory the past year. His address was full of en couragement to the projectors of tho Baxter Springs enterprise and was hcariilv appreciated by all preseut. He said that one patron of the Colum bus factory had received between $500 aud $600 in money during the past year for the milk from (en cows sold to the creamery.

E. church under direction of Prof. Noble was iriven Saturday evening, beine postponed on account of tbo rain. Tboogh the weather-was snn Inclement, jthe attendance was good and the program appreciated. It was one Oi tne oesi literary cmeuaiuiucmo . a . I ever given in wis piace ana wouia re flect credit upon any town. There was enongh of the classical to give it tone aud enongh of the humorous to make it lively. The choir seemed to be in their best mood, rendering an anthem and a chorus very efficiently. Miss May Smith and Gertrude Noblo rendered a line duet which was well received. Five girls gave a round in so many parts which pleased the audi ence very much. Miss Veve Brown sang a solo with more than accustomed ease and naturalness. Miss Brown's voice shows constant improvement in evenness and power. The duet "I heard a voice," is one of Glover's best compositions and though somewhat iiffinnH m exceedinvTv well ren dered by Miss Veve Brown and Miss Winnie roister. Fine literarv productions were giv en by Sadie Talbot and C. F. Noble. - ... a Splendid recitations were given oy Miss Maud Matheny aud Miss Ida Cooper. Miss Laura Cooper rendered "The tfypBy lower uirr- in a way that retained the laurels already won on former occasions. Miss Jessie Ed- humorous selections aud Miss Maude Hoke read in a splendid manner a "Criticism on Jack Horner." Mim Maude Talbot's paper was caretuny prepared and well read. The crowning performance of tho eveuing was the rendering of Poe's Bells by ten young ladies and threo young gentlemen. The different in tonations of the bells were brought out with pleasing effect and reflected much credit upon Miss Laura Cooper1 who so faithfully drilled them. This piece can be repeated at auy time with acceptability. The receipts were sev enteen dollars. Whatever tlse can be said of Baxter Springs sho has a class of young people of more thau ordina rv intelligence and society appreciate the church aud literary effort. FINE CABINET PHOTOGBAPHS. It seems that everybody in this city and vloinitv are having their pictures taken. Well, they may, as all who have seen the work of Prof. Schwartz and son of Kansas City say the pic tures are the finest they ever saw. It is certainly a good chance for blondes and those who never bad a good pic ture, as it seems they raako a specialty of hard custotdert. The writer thinks seriously of trying it himself. These artists come highly recom mended. They show letters from the best people of the country. Tho strangest part of it is thst they use only uatural light and the weather ha nothing to do with them. The eyes of their pictures are so much better than the ones taken by skylight, and we undprajand the pictures will be the same as samples, no matter what kind of a day you go. We also learned yesterdav that their timo here is lim UpA tn n'pxt week. It is a eood chance. judging from the very fact that they ask no pay in advance as is customary with many artists. Surely they would not do that unless tney meani to maite their word good with the people. We are satisfied to give them a trial at least ., rLKASB CAIX AND SETTLE. tfinarttifr trtumaAlvei in- Aehtndto McElhinev & Friblev are re quested to call aud settle.
