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
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.

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.
