Following is the supreme court syllabus m the case from this district regarding the right of county com missioners to change the valuation of railroads for county taxation pur poses: 1, Whenever the valuation of tax able property in any county is changed by the slate board of equalization, the board of equalization, the board of county commissioners of such county, is authorized to use the valua tion so tixed by the state board as a basis for making their levies for all purposes, but are not bound so to do. 2. Section 1 of article 11 of the constitution is not violated by the action of the local taxing authorities refusing to adopt the valuations fixed by the state board in making their levy lor the current expences of the county, or for any other purpose ex cept state taxes. All the justices concurring. There is more catarrh in thif section of the country than all other diseases put together, and until the last few years was supposed to be incurable, For a great many years doctors pro nounced it a local desease, and pro scribed local remedies, and by con stantly failing to cure with local treat ment pronounced it Incurable. Sci ence has proven catarrh to be a consti tutional disease, and therefore requires constitutional treatment. Hall's Ca tarrh Cure, manufactured by F. J. Cheney & Co., Toledo, Ohio, it the only constitutional core on the mar ket. It is taken internally in doses from 10 drops to a teaspoonful, It acts directly on the blood and mucous turfacei of the system. They offer one hundred dollars for any case it faili to cure.

It was strictly an out-door affair and the beautiful evening lent all possible aid to the pleasure of the occasion. The ample lawn was illuminated with electric lights and a large dancing lloor was laid and was a scene of gayety, Suiter's orchestra furnishing excellent music. The hostesses, assisted by Miss Gorden's guest, Miss Bella Jones of Minneapolis received on the porch. Miss Annie Malott an Master Frxuk Giles were door attendants. The dainty supper was served on the north lawn under the trees. The perfection of the arrange ments madd the occasion one long to be remembered with pleasure. The guests were: Messrs. and Mesdames F.

TOPPING REELECTED, Enterprise Han Still Secretary State Millers' Association. The twenty-seventh annual meet ing of the Kansas Millers' association was held yesterday afternoon in To peka. There were forty members from different parts of the State in attendance. The meeting was called to order at 2:30 o'clock with President George H. Hunter, of Wellington, presiding, and C. V. Topping, of En terprise, secretary. The keynote of the convention proved to be the proposition of dis posing, through agents outside of the State, of the surplus flour made by Kansas mills. A committee was ap pointed to discuss and make a report on the matter, but It failed to reach an agreement. The proposition proved to be too great for a few hours' thought to solve, so the com mittee was given more time for delib eration and to make the report. At 6:30 o'clock another abort meet ing was held for the election of offic ers for the ensuing year. J. H. Mc Nair, of Halstead, was elected presi dent; A. J. Hunt, Arkansas City, vice president; C. V. Topping, of Enter prise, was re-elected secretary and David Bowie, of Topeka, treasurer. The place of holding the next meet ing was not decided upon. Shifting Soil.

It is not every day that an Abilene man gets an editorial notice in so great a paper as the New York Sun. But one did it this week. That pa per at the close of an editorial on the wheat crop of the State says: There is need for more preachers of this sort in Kansas. That the les son, plain as it is, needs a preceptor, is made evident by this item in the Kansas City Journal: "I. 8. Italian) of Dickinson county, Kansas, got down In I lie nioulli a few weeks uito and contracted the product of his wheat farm to a local dealer at 50 cents u bushel, lie has harvested a Hue crop and figures that at the present price la Abilene be Is out Just twin." Can't you see Hallam? Can't you hear him telling what he thiuks of the man who told him that the, rising price of wheal was a bunco trick of capital, and that the quicker he sold, the more he'd save from the wreck?. Sound people are not those to whom the smart quack goes with his nos trums. The people of Kansas are apt to be in a mighty healthy frame of mind this fall. Individuals whose farming experience is limited to the wearing of overalls in photograph galleries may rind it profitable to bear the fact in mind during the coming campaign. SOLD $25 000 WORTH HERE. Dickinson County Invested Heavily in Threshing Machinery One of the effect of the good wheat harvest was the increased sale of threshing machinery. A dealer who is iu a position to know says that at least ten complete outfits engine and separator have been sold in this county this season at an avcrago cost of $'.',500, This means that the threshers expect to earn a good deal of money. Shockey & Landes who do a large jobbers trade as western agents for Frick & Co.' have sold about 150,000 worth of threshing machinery to parties outside of the county. It will be used in western and northwestern Kansas. Fifth Diitrict Towns- Following is the population of the eleven largest towns in the Fifth dis trict.

A few days ago we noted the in juries received by Mrs. Charles Lee, daughter of Commissioner Baker, who with her five children was in terri ble trolley car disaster at Tacoma, Wash., on the morning of July 4. The Tacoma Ledger has this to say about the family: "Mrs. Chas. O. Lee and two children, a boy and a girl, are at the Fanny Paddock. Mrs. Lee lives in South Tacoma, and her hus band is a traveling man. She was bringing her five children in to see the parade. None of them sustained serious Injuries, though all are bruis ed and cut somewhat. Richard 7 year" old, was killed outright; and Lyman, his twin brother and his sister are at the Fanny Pad.lock. Roscoe another brother, was taken to the St. Joseph, but was not hurt much. The babe a year old is missing, but is said to be with a family In the sixth addition. Mr. Lee was in Medford, Or., last night on his way homo, and ho tele phoned his brother, II. M. Lee, that he would reach Tacoma tonight." Was it a Miracle? "The marvellous cure of Mrs. Kena J. Stout of consumption has created intense excitement in Cammack, Ind." writes Marion Stuart, a leading drug gist of Muncie, Ind. She only weighed 90 pounds when ber doctor In York town said she must soon die. Then she tried Dr. King's New Discovery and gained 37 pounds in weight and was completely cured." It has cured thousands of hopeless case, and is pos itively guaranteed to cure all Throat, Chest and Lung diseases. 60c and $1 Trial bottles free at J. M. Gleissnor's. ISi chanan, Mich., May 22.

Topolobampo Colony Landi to Be Purchased by Speculators. A Buffalo capitalist who was here this week says that a syndicate in that city has been formed to purchase the lands of the old Topolobampo colony on the west coast of Mexico and use them tor a vast sugar planta tion, employing clieap Mexican labor. The company has inspected the lands and finds a favorable outlook. It has secured land belonging to the colony and has bought up private claims un til it has a large tract and it expects to utilize the irrigation ditch that was nearly completed by the co-operative company. Prominent Hawaii sugar planters are interested in tho scheme and an expert is now cn route to inspect the conditions of soil and climate. If his report is favorable they will invest largely. The chief drawback at pres ent is the lack of market connections, The building of the proposed Topolo bampo & Kansas City road would much enhance tho value of the colony lands, CHOSE A NEW TEACHER.
