A little work now will save a whole lot of work af . ter a while, and it will also save horse flesh and barnes?. V Will. Douthit is exhibiting some corn which goes . forty ears to "the bushel.

Inasmuch as it is generally - be lieved that corn is going to get down to 25 cents per bushel, four cents is an awful big price to be compelled to pay. Diphtheria seems to be epidem ic in Joplin, and many of its citi zens are hunting homes in Bax ter Springs. There is no ques tion but that Baxter is the health iest town in the state. Our death rate is the lowest, and we have n.ver had an epidemic in this city. There is no malaria or mi asma in this vicinity; 'we. hare pure water, eood drainare. pure air, and no doctor's bills.

Some of our politicians are talking of starting a new Repub lican newspaper in Baxter Springs. How can they? It will remind you that the fall season is pretty near here when you see those new Fall Goods on display at Cooper's. Daniels & Plumb have three or four of the nicest residence prop erties in the city for sale and they can be bought at a great bargain if taken right away. If a few vindictive women and blear-eyed men can run the cities and towns of Kansas, regardless of the wishes of the great major ity, it is time we had a new constitution. Our hay makers seem to be having a good year. Prices are high and all the big hay barns in this section are well filled. Many are still cutting" the second crop. Our farmers are au pros perous and so are our merchants. Rev. Perry of Pittsburg, will preach in the Presbyterian church next Sunday, October 7th at 11 a. m.. and 7:30 p. m. The friends of the church and the oublic eenerally are cordially in vited to come out and hear him. From present indications there will be more "straddlers" and in dependent scratchers at the No vember election in Kansas, than ever before. It is likely to be men instead of party this time, and no man can foretell the result. A Hebrew Jew is looking for a location to start a big store in Baxter.

Daniels & Plumb have buyers for a few small city residence? Plumb. They give you a good title to all real estate. The new council looks good to us. We hope tliey will advance the interests of Baxter Springs on all lines. We need them every hour. An old resident of Galena was in Baxter Saturday night and said the crowd on the street re mimded him of Galena in her best days. Our mining exchange ought to see that the turn-in from our mines are published every week. Many smaller camps are publish ed in every report. ' We do need a new hotel. We need a modern hotel. It should be located on the main street. A 40 or 50-room hotel would be full all the time and pay big inter est to the owners. When you go to Joplin look out for pickpockets. One Baxter gentleman was watching; the Confederate parade the other day with his mouth open and had his false teeth picked out. Gov. Hoch says he will enforce the prohibitory law, and Col. Harris says he will enforce all the laws. There, will be a hot old time in Topeka, where about 100 joints are running, no matter who is elected. I have for sale a. five-year-old Durham-Hereford bull.
