Id. H. GARDNER, Editoi and PublUher. Entered at the posr-offlea at Baxter Spring. Kanaaa, as second class matter. SATURDAY, M ASCII 29, 1890. The first quarterly mooting of the Kaiisan state dairy association will bo lield In Abilene April 3 and 4. AVa would like to be iniormod why it la that the Farmers Alliance 6tores have failed atsovoral points in Kansas with losses of trom $5,000 to f 10,000. Congress hus flxod upon April 30, 1893, as the date for tho opening of the world'e fair at Chicago. The exhibi tion will close October 20th of tho same year. t Tho best investment of tho kiud the government ever made was the pur chase of Alaska for $7,200,000. Its seal product has already paid for it twice over, and the recent contract for the taking of seals in its waters will yield the government about $1,000,000 annually for tho next twenty years. Globe Democrat : Free trade would not kill trusts as a whole, forEnglaud, which has free trade, ha9 three or four times as many trusts as the United States has. However, the trusts don't deserve any protection, and the people of the country, especially the republi can part of them, demand that duties be heavily cut on trust products. - rrcsident Harrison has refused to give the Indians now traveling with divers and sundry "Wild west shows" permission to continue iu that line of ' business for another year. There will be a great industry opened next year j for gentlemen with black hair who will paint themselves red and avoid painting the town the same color. Notwithstanding tho fact that peti tions signed by thousands of old sol diers are being sent in daily to mem bers of congress asking for a service pension bill the Kansas City Globe correspondent ?ives it out cold and Hat that tho "veterans" may as well . make up their minds now that no ser vice pension bill will bo passed this session of congress. The Emporia Republican says it would not be a butterfly when autumn winds grow chill, nor would it be a little bird for naughty hoys to kill; it -fchould not waut to be a hare always on the run nor dnck, nor quail, nor auything iu danger from a gun. But most of all it would hate to be in this terrestrial scene, a yellow-legged chick en where the Methodists convene. Globe-Democrat: The republicans intend to attack tho trusts in two places, at the custom house and in the courts. They will reduce duties on articles which directly contribute toward ttrengthening the trusts and will frame, as they are trying to do in the Sherman bill, laws which will deal with them as agencies to prevent competition and as conspiracies against the public well fare. . Speaker Reed says tho McKinlcy tariff bill is perfectly satisfactory to him aud ho believes it will be perfect ly satisfactory generally to the people. The Interests of the farmers have been carefully considered in every particular. Adequate protec ' tion is furnished for butter, eg?s, hay and every other farm product which has to compete with tho products of foreign conntrics. The tariff on sugar, which is a necessity aud not a luxury, will be materially reduced.' Columbus Advocate : It is not gener ally known fh'iiaucw secret society, called tht) "sovereign citizens" cxisis mid lias been in operation some time. We have it from a reliable source that the place used by the oociely are the . two rear rooms in the Beers block, up fctair. The membership consists of many of our prominent citizens aud business men. The object of the socie ty is to supply members with a place to congregate and engage iu games, ex ' ercises, etc., at the same place drinks are dispensed by waiters with white aprons. A member ran gain admission to the rooms at any lime, day or night, hy giving the orrovt raps and pass woid. A candidate in becoming a member goe through an iiiUialion, the. nature of which we have not learned. W are informed that there exists a lodgof this kind in nearly every town of any prominence in the f.late. Galena ha one with a mem1er- rhip of 130. An investigation is beii:g made of this society. As we are in formed it is fothiug mors nor less than a well eMaWlished saloon. Old papers C re cents per dozen. BIO SERVICE PENSION MEETING. rursuant to call of the G. A. R.

The following timely remarks on the present condition of Kansas and Kansttrt. tatui8 ,ve lind in the South Kansas Tribune: Kansas is beginning to put on her emerald robes, and in a fortnight no statu in the uuion will bear cuinpari n ns ft Her ne of beautv. In Cherokee countv tho wheat has already dropped . . t ... .1. . ..1 its searcn tuns ami hb iiiu ot gri-un gladdens the heart of every one. With warm spriMg days the tanners arc at work as in "no other seel ion of this hroud land to the north of us, aud the acreage of oats and grass seed sown iu the last two weeks is greater than ever before, and plowing for corn is the order of the day. Tho Kansas farmers, especially in this county, have advantages possessed by those in no other ftatc. Willi a soil equal to tho very best we have iu addition a climate that permits the , growth of a greater range of products than grown iu other latitudes, gives the far mers from two to three months more time to work iu, with never less than 180 days without a killing frost, aud consequently, with tamo grass pas tures, a very short feeding season. With the same kind of farming as iu Illinois or Ohio, with clover, blue grass and timothy pastures, good oanis and good stock, a Cherokee county farmer can produce horses, beeves, pork or mutton at 33 per cent less than in colder climates. With re turning prosperous times and the open ing of spring begin to invite your old time friends to visit you. Low railroad rates will be given. Have thera come any time from now until the crops are cribbed, let them see what our soil will grow, iuvcstljrate closely, eat our lusciout bevvies and traits aud melons. We want them hero to share with us in prosperity and to help ns develop the natural advantages of our county.
