Last Saturday was Booster Day in Baxter Springs, and there was an immense crowd, too. The pe ople began coming in early in the morning and by one o'clock every place a horse could be hitched was in use, and teams were hitched in the outskirts of the business section. The mer chants who made an effort to se cure extra business bad all the business they could handle, and when it was time to close that night they were perfectly willing. The weather was ideal and the crowd very good natured. Twelve hundred and eighty-three -tickets were given out, ana the prizes awarded were worth while. There was a Booster Day in Columbus at the same time, and perhaps it is just as well that there was, for if the crowd had been much bigger the town would have been crowded, for sure. As it turned out, we are not sore at Columbus for jumping in on our date, i The News A Power. Chapter 1. At the October Booster Day Mrs. Avery Wilbur drew one of the subscriptions ofiered by the News. She was intending to subscribe tor the paper, but drawing the prize made this unnecessary. Chapter 2. Mr. ' Wilbur was out by Keelville one day last week buying live stock when be noticed a couple of horses which had been advertised in the News week before last. The horses ha" strayed from Galena. There wii a reward of ten dollars for each of them. Chapter 3. Mr. Wilbur is $20 ahead by coming to Booster Day in Baxter Springs and bringing his wife with him. Moral: :Come to Baxter Springs on Booster Day and bring not on ly your wife but, your whole family. Social Events. Last Friday evening Mrs. J. H.

Pearl Mullen, Aud rey Smith, Grace Perkins, Ethel Crowell, Esther Crowell, Mr. J. W. Twente and Dr. Boswell. He Will Not. The new county attorney, Charlie, Stephens, says Booster Days must stop that they are unlawful and he says this des pite the fact that such lawyers as Corb NcNeill. Al. Williams, A. H. Skidmore, E. B. Morgan and Judge Lindsay and others say that Booster Days are not unlawful. Mr. Stephens also says it is unlawful for churches to hold fairs and raffles, but we will bet dollars to doughnuts he does nothing toward stopping that big church fair going on in f he north part of the county, where it is expected three thousand dol lars will be raised. He will keep hands off there, all right. It. has been a long time since an osteopathist practiced in Bax ternot since Dr. Barber and his wife were here. But Dr. Nan nie A.

A victim who had been "held up" the night before was' telling some of his lriends about it "But one thing I've learned. After this I keep my money in the bank. Of course they're always telling you of the danger of being robbed, and that you ought to keep your money in the bank, but there is another side to the story. That fellow wight have killed me last night! Now has a man a right to RISK HIS LIFE for a few dollars? A man can stand to be robbed of a few dollars if he don't want to keep his money in a bank, but when it's a case of danger to life, you can't take the risk." Did you ever look at it this way?

He is a humane detective, to. In the days when the Pinkertons were tome cheese, they did good work, too, but any means was used to accomplish their ends. Burns does not work that way. He never makes a mistake by ar resting or causing to be arrested the wrong person. He works up his case, just as he did in the case against the McNamaras, gets all of his evidence and then gets his man. He uses no "third degree" methods. Truly, the confession of the McNamaras was a great vindication for Burns. Miss Vie Lindsey was the gnest of M r. acd Mrs. ?!. IV 8 1 J N :! 3 -'8 I 1 "I 'i 1. - .a 'K 1 9: 1 4 . , . .
