You Want, Come are not sold out of To Our Patrons. The editor of the News has been laid up for the past five fweeks with very bad -case of muscular rheumatism, and per haps the Nsws has not been up to its usual standard of excel- fence, However, the boys in the ofllce hare fame Ffry weV.ai?& at any rate they have done as 'jyejj as could be expected. .We cer tainly appreciate their efforts, any way. In addition to getting out the paper they have handled a big lot of job work. It will be some time, perhaps, before we will be able to do very much work in the omce, but it is our hope and expectation to be in the office in a very few days to superintend and do what we can to' help the work along. Our trouble has settled in the right hand and wrist, and it will .no doubt be some little time before we get rid of the affliction en tirely. Many of our friends, both ladies and gentlemen, have called during our indisposition, and in this way have helped to dispel the gloom and make the days seem shorter.'

Baxter Springs has long had' tbe best water works system and the best telephone exchange also, and in a short time will be poss essed of the very best electric light plant. For some time it has been' very apparent that the load was entirely too big for the engine which has been running the plant, so the owner, Dr. C. M. Jones, bought a big 150 horse power Corliss engine to relieve the burden. " This huge engine is now being installed, and with in ten days or two weeks it will be in commission grinding out the "juice" for lights.' It seems a little tough for the residence section of the city to not have lights, but when the new ma chinery is in running order the lights will be so much better that we will be glad we were in the darkness, so to speak, for a few nights. Municipal improvements in Baxter Springs are of a high class, and the public service com' paniesare not one whit behind in point of service rendered. Thanksgiving Dinner. Mr. and Mrs. Henry Bower, livinsr six and one half miles north of Baxter Springs gave Thanksgiving dinner for their children and grand children, and a fine time was had. Those pres ent were: Mr. and Mrs. Wil Wright and children, Glenn, Charley,. Rosey and Gerty, o Weir. Mrs. Louis bnoultz and children, Sebe, John, Sam, Delia Hester and Gladys, of Neutral Mr. and Mrs. .James Jtsarr and children.- Beatrice. Glenn and Myra of Blue Mound; and Mrs Scott Jarrett and children, Ber tha. Jenny and Henry of Blue Mound. About 11:30 the table fairly groaned under its load of good things to eat, which consisted o turkey, pi?, cake, ifuits oi var ious kinds, sauces of all - sorts, bread', butter, jellies, pickles, preserves, and many other things which is proof of the, successfu farmer of Sunny Kansas. At 12:30 the guests had relieved the table of considerable of its load. The afternoon was spent with game of base ball by the young people, while the older ones that didn't care to settle their dinners that -way enjoyed themselves looking on. , Tar Vallay Naws. Boys of our country are not bold enough to ask their girls to eo to parties: mamma" has to April, tools flay f ome more than once a year, so I heard, and some times three time. .We know not when Sunday comes as tne . norse and buggy has .quit going to Center. The time keeper of the M. E. church believes in last music fie always pounds on tbe. organ when we are supposed to sing faster. We suppose when the new auto comes to this country that we wilt see Miss Josie Paxson riding in it.

If you want any one to make a great noise apply at the C. H. S. basket ball team. We neglected to mention last week the marriage of Miss Ade laide Cox, daughter of Mrs. S. W. Etter of this city, to Mr. W. C. Collins of Chicago. The bride has a lot of friends in this city, who wish her much happiness. The groom is a business man of Chicago, handling real estate, and he is also interested in tbe mines of the Baxter camp. The marriage ceremony was perform ed at Crown Point, Ind., but the . .a a- couple will make their nome in Chicago. ! The good prices being received for zinc ore these days, coupled with the scarcity of men to work in the mines, causes a sort o: feverish unrest among the opera tors. They want to get the big prices for their ores, but the un certainty of having men . enough to get the dirt out of the ground and mill it is causing a continn al unrest. The weather the people of this section of country have been en joying this fall could not be beaten. It has been warm, and clear at least half of the time, and overcoats have not been reallv necessary. True, it has been a little tough on the cloth ing men, but there are others. The meetings at the M. E. church have been quite well at tended, and considerable interest has been manifested. Rev. Mason of Galena, who has been leading in the work, is a vere forcefu speaker, and he has made some hare drives toward the devil's bulwark. " The Brotherhood is fortunate in securing the services of Rev. Sam'l P. Garvin to lecture at the Methodist church next Monday night. It is free to men, and every man in town and vicinity should hear him. Publlo Sals. On Monday. Dec 6, J. M.
