And his inoi her cast down a mud planee; 'Do you know now, "said she, "Where your hat ought to lit?" ' ' Yes, ' ' be answered, "inside of my pants . ' Galena is to havo a new opera house. A now water wheel is soon to bo added to the power at the river. Attend tho reunion meeting at the city hall next Wednesday evening. Quito a number of babies in Colum bus are sick and several havo died re cently. The age of Alfred Biuns was given last week at -10 years. It should have read 34 years. The saw mill at the river is started at 12 o'clock midnight and run till 7 in the morning. There will be no services at the M. E. church Sunday on account of the 6lckness of the pastor. A five mile bicycle race between Galena and Weir City wheelmen is being arranged for. Everybody attend the mass meeting at the city hall next Wednesday eve ning to make arrangements for re union. The Republican says one original package house in Galena has starved out and that the others are not grow ing fat. ' The Star Courier wants a conven Hon of tax-payers to devise means of lessening the public burden. Not bad idea. The breaking of a belt at the elec tric light station Wednesday night caused the dynamo to 6top for about forty-five minutes. The Star Courier says eggs are one or the things that age does not im prove. The Star Courier editor might be placed in tho same category. -Miss Mattio Webb, eldest daughter of ex-county attorney G. W. Webb of listen a, died at her home in that city on the 13th in St., of consumption. The ministers of Weir City are try- ing by persuasion to stop Sunday base ball playing in that place. If that fails they will resort to the iron hand of the law. The mother of Mr. Van B. Prather, who resides about nine miles north west of this city, died Sunday morn ing very suddenly of apoplexy. She was quite aged. Galena must be several laps ahead of any of her neighbors. She has a lady engineer and a lady dentist. Baxter is certainly next to her any how. Sho has a lady woodhauler. Several farmers in this vicinity have been hauling water from the medical springs for home use recently. These springs are a great bonanza for great many people during dry weather. Our late census enumerator is pa tiently waiting for Supt. Porter to send him bis check iu order that he may liquidate that little doctor bill which he innocently contracted last Friday evening. The minister of Columbus who ad vised tho use of the shotgun to keep out the original package men now says ho did not mean that, but only to show them the muzzle. Just a little game of bluff, we presume. Died. At his home near this city Thursday, Jnly 24, J. E. Griffin. He was one or the oldest and best or our citizens, having come to this county 16 years ago. The funeral was held yesterday afternoon and the remains buried at the city cemetery. The second quarterly meeting of Baxter Springs charge will be held to day (Saturday) and to-morrow at J. Rendell's grove near Elm Tree school house. Presiding elder Robb will be present and conduct the services. Communion at 11 a. m. Sunday. Bas ket dinner. The new mining company spoken of last week has been named the Good Branch Mining Co., as their 40-acre tract lies on Good branch, a half mile south of Peoria. At a depth of seven feet they struck a splendid lead of crevice mineral Thursday, and slock went up in a hurry. Mr. J. W. Chubb, living seven miles northwest of Baxter, who was in the city Wednesday, says he will have a good crop of corn even if it does not get another rain on it He did all his plowing last fall Zand a a result his com is very large, most of the ears be ing too high to be reached from the ground, IBEX SOAP the best 5c soap on the market at W.

A News representative had the pleasure of looking through the plant of tho Baxter Springs liutter and Cheese Association last Saturday morning. Ho found the affable John McFadden, superintendent, on deck aud up to his shoulders in work, with J. P. Hartley and others assisting. The plant is one of tho best equipped in the state and is turning out a very flue quality of full cream cheese at the rate of nearly a thousand pounds a day. This Is finding a ready sale wherever introduced and the nsocia tlon is ou a solid footing with a stead uy increasing business. As soon as cool weather comes attention will be given to the manufacture of butter ex clnsively. This is one of tho success ful institutions of which all citizens of this vicinity may well feel proud. For several weeks past D. N. Pavne, living near Tennessee Prairie, has been missing articles of provisions every few nights from his house. Sat urday night ho made up his mind he would "lay" for the intruder. Load ing his shotgun with a good charge of fine 6bot be got into a convenient place, his family retired as usual and about 12 o'clock bo spied his victim caiciullv euteriugtho premises. When within good range and about to enter the meat house Mr. Payne proceeded to put a large number of bird shot in to his carcass so suddenly that he van ished over the high board fence quick er than you could sav "skat." It is not positively known whether the in truder had a "spell of 6ickncss"oriiot, but Mr. Payne thinks be has. If you want to hear the genuine rumble aud rustle of busy men visit tho plant of the Baxter Springs Mfg. Co. during working hours. There vou will fiud twenty-five of tho busiest men iu town, who are turning out Banner wiud engines and tanks, su perb cherry, oak, gum, sassafras aud other fine house finishiugs at a rapid rate, l he company is paying out to mechanics alone the neat sum of $40 per day, or over $1,000 per month. This is exclusive of commissions paid to agents and traveling men. The business of the institution is steadily increasing and doubtless the capacity of the works will have to be increased before mauv months. The county commissioners' are in about a peck of trouble. At their July meeting tne bids tor doing the court house janitor work were opened and each member selected a man and they were compelled to adiourn without accepting any one of the bids, for the reason that no two of them could agreo on the same one. Then to add to the dilemma the present janitor claims that he has a verbal contract with the board which does not expire until tne first of December next, and that if he is removed before that time he will 6ue the county for his salary for the unexpired part of the contract. W.W.Scott and sons Walter and Arthur returned home a few days ago irom a very successful and enjoyable trip to their old borne in Kentucky. Mr. Scott brought with him for his breeding stables in this city two Al mont Prince fillies, two Magic Wilkes fillies, two Copperbottom fillies, one Kentucky Princeps mare and colt, one Rob Roy (saddler), one coach horse and three fine Kentucky jennets. These are all standard bred animals and are no small addition to tho al ready large amount of fine stock for which this vicinity is quite noted. We are informed by an officer of the Cherokee County Ureeders Associa tion that the association will not hold a fair this fall ou account of a failure secure suitable grounds, but it is the intention to begin early next sea- sou, prepare a fine track and a good fair ground for a big exhibition next year at Baxter Springs. We regret tne net mat no rair can be ncld this year but as it is unavoidable Jet us make op ourminds to all pull together for the biggest fair ever held in the county next year. Tho Baxter band boys have for sev eral weeks been giving very accepta ble Saturday evening sereuades on Military street. The band is playing a fine grade of music in excellent style and a little encouragemeut in the way of applause (or something more substantial if possible) would not be a bad thing to oiler them if you appre ciate their efforts. Hie Star Courier wauts to know why the repainting of tho county house was not offered to bidders, and why a son of nne of the commissioners was employed lo do the work. If the Star Courier will ask Mr. Robinson, the democratic member, perhaps it can gain the desired information. He employed the workman who did the work. L. C. Goodner will pav the bizbest market price for butcher's stock. In quire at Drovers and Farmers bank. LIBBABY NOT EM. Our reading room still continues ti gain iu interest and numbers.
