PERKINS ELECTED. Ill the grand rush of curious aud atartlin? election returns last week we entirely overlooked the matter of men tioning the fact that a councilman 10 fill a vacancy had been elected in the first ward of this city. Mr. L. M. Perkins .was the only candidate an nounced, for the place, and really he was the only one iu it. After the elec tion was about half over, iu the after noon, some one started the uameof Mr. J. M. Cooper as a candidate, and when the ballots were counted in the evening it was found that Mr. Perkins had received 30 votes and Mr. Cooper 15 votes. The exceedingly light voto cast is due to the fact that a large number of voters did not know thero was a coun cilman to be elected or else the interest manifested in the general election so overshadowed this minor question as to cause them to forget about it unl.il too late to vote. Mr. rerkins is one among our very best citizens, who has manifested a deep interest in the welfare of Baxter Springs and has bucked up his faith in her future by the investment of a considerable amount of capital here within the past live years. ve ao not see why he will not maki as good a councilman as anyone else who might have been chosen.

That this youthful feeling may go with them through the remainder of a jour nev reaching out into many years lill ed'with lire's richest blessiugs, and that Together down tile's swelling tide Oh, rauy they ever safily glide , And msy Ibey anchor side by side la IJenTen" ' " ' is the wish of their Many Friends.
