Seaton, print er, s ldier, homesteader, and who worked the greater part of two years on the first paper published In Abi lene requesting us to publish the following clipped from the Jewell County Republican. He says the reasons for belonging to this Seaton family are that a couple years ago he slept with Mr. 0. A. Seaton in the city of Abilene. We were certainly pleased to have the privilege of examining an elegant new dook tnis ween mat was written by a Jewell City man Mr. 0. Seaton. The title of the book is -The Seaton Family." The family lineage is orougnt aown irom the mtn cen tury, and we doubt if there is a family in the United States whose record is more complete. The Seatons are really an illustrious family and were preeminently distinguished in Scot tish and English history for over 600 years, and it includes within its oircles knights, lords, archbishops, earls ana many other noblemen The Seaton coat of arms occupies one page oi tne book. Mr. seaton com piled this work ana indexed every name that appears in tne book, as recreation. He kept his typewriter ready in his grain office, and whenever ne naa a moment to spare ne turned to his book. It was the work of years and we congratulate him upon the successful outcome. It is a work that will certainly be hin-hlv Drized by all whose family history is there recorded, and the older it grows the more valuable it will become.

It is the county east of Uinta county which is contiguous to Yellowstone National Park, looated in the southwest oorner of the state the Bear River' valley. This stream rises in Utah and flow north at this point and is a little .longer than Turkey Creek. The . Rooky mountains are all about us on every side rising to an elevation of 10,000 feet. These are barren, producing dwarf pines and oedar, sage bush and bunch grass. At present they are covered with great field of ice and snow over whioh great packs of gray wolves and coyotes roam destroying large number of deer, antelope, mountain sheep and domestic animals on the exposed ranohes. Raising of live stock, farming under irrigating ditches which belt almost every foot hills and mining are the chief indus trial pursuits. Like many of our sister states, the commonwealth of Wyoming is developing rapidly. Her administration is purely Republican in politics. A number of new rail roads are in process of building. These will top hitherto virgin fields of minoral and oil deposits, lumber producing regions, and vast tracts of irrlgatable lands. "Small ranches and more men" is the policy pursued. Agriculture, the true foundation of any state is receiving first attention. Our people as a whole are intelligent, industrious and moral. The Wild West bewhiskered ruffin with knife and gun and -the era for which he stands are rapidly vanishing. Iam now pastor of the First Baptist church.

Mrs. Margaret Howie, wife of James Howie, Jr., died at their home in Wheatland township Monday after noon, Jan. 7, aged 24 years, 1 month, 4 days. Mrs. Howie had spent all her life in this vicinity. She was married to James Howie Nov. 19, 1902. The cause of her death was consumption of the bowels, having been sick a little over a week and her death was a shock to all her friends. She left three small children to mourn the loss of a mother but one little son aged two months was sick at the time of her death and died three days after. Besides the husband and children Mrs. Howie leaves a father and three sisters and many near relatives and friends to feel the loss of her death. She had been a member of the Mt.

On my mem bership list are a number of Kansans. M. 0. Andrewson, who used to reside near Clifton; Mr. and Mrs. Lester Gil bert, recently of Almena; C. J. Col lins, wife and family recently of Her ington, and a large family of West's from Kansas City, Eas. The pastor of the Presbyterian church, Rev. Leon Hill, came here from Kansas via. the Philippines. There are a number of others in the Sunflower fraternity here. How does old Kansas look from here? Like Eden must have looked to the exiles. There is no comparison and may not be for many decades possibly never. However there is one phase of interest in which it is ahead of Kansas, viz., jn healthful ness. We have not met or heard of t consn mptive resident. Lung troubles are all- rare. Pneumonia is a very fatal swing to our altitude. Fevers are rare except typhoid. This comes from bad well water on bottoms around mining camps. We have three M. D's. and one of them is at the State Hospital for Insane. A new doctor tried to get a place here last year to work for his board. He has moved away. In closing may say that Iam second pastor to come here from Abilene. The other being E. E. Hollar now of Kansas City. Mr. Hollar did good work here and has many friends who ipeak highly of his efficient labors. The Reflector ha been a weekly joy to me for many years. It came to me in Central Africa during the Anglo-Boer War being delivered by stage from Beira on East Coast; five years to Chicago; and may it prosper and gladden an Increasing number is my New Tear's wish.

Special Message Monday. Washington, Jan. 12. The presi dent had a conference Friday with Milton D. Purdy of the department of Justice, who Went to Texas and Okla homa to make an Independent Inves tigation of the Brownsville riot. Prac tically all testimony takes by Mr. Purdy and the affidavit secured by him are la the president' hand and these, with a special message are to be sent to the senate Monday next Attempted to Rob Magaxlne.

Washington, Jan. 12. The first speech In defense of the right of Reed Smoot to a seat in the Senate wa delivered Friday by Senator Hop kin of Illinois. Mr. Hopkins took the position that senators were not fed eral officers to the extent that the Senate could pass upon their quull flcatlons and eligibility or could Im peach them for high crimes or mis demeanors. If a senator was to b punished It must be done by the state or federal courts. Only federal officers, be maintained, were im peachable, and this Impeachment must be done for acta committed as such federal officers. Mr. Hopkins said It was unneces sary for him to multiply evidence to demonstrate his point that Indlvldua' slates have no power to add any qual Iflcatton to a senator other than those prescribed by the federal constitu tion. Referlng directly to Mr. Smoot he continued: "It Is conceded by the chairman o the comml'tee on privileges and elec tions that Senator Smoot possesne-s all of the qualifications spoken of in the constitution itself. It Is also conced ed, not only by the able chairman ot this committee, but I think by all who are at all familiar with the case that Senator Smoot is not a polygamlst, that he has never married a plural wife and has never practiced poly gamy; that he Is a man in his per sonal relations as son, as husband, father and citizen, above reproach, that In all of the relations of cltlzn ship he has lived a singularly pur and upright life." "Why then," he avked, "should he be expelled from this body, dlsgras ed and dishonored for life, a stigma placed upon his children, his own life wrecked and the happiness of his wife destroyed? He is a Christian gentleman and bla religious belief ha taken him Into the church ot Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, commonly called the Mormon church. Mr. Hopkins said he felt sure thost representing the Protestant would not contend that there was an apos tolic oath which bad been taken by Mr. Smoot which would prevent him from discharging his duties ss sen ator. Mr. Hopkins sympathized, he said, with the denunciation of poly gamy mods by Mr. Burrows In a re cent speech. It was, he believed, a relle of a barbarous age, and a d stroysr of the Ideal American borne, aad he had no sympathy with tht practice. "Never before la (he his tory of the government," he declared. with great emphasis, "has the pre vtous life or career of a Oenator been called la question to determine wheth er be should remain In the Senate or ot" "If members of any Chrlsrlaa church were to be charged with all ot the erfmee that have beea eonraalted fa Ms Banxf, where Is the Christian gsatlemaa ta this body who would be safe la his seat!" Wives of Cabinet Members Havs Se cret of Appetizing Dishes. Women of the cabinet set are na turally proud of their housewifely ac complishments, and It Is not unusual for them to send 8am pies of their skill to Mrs. Roosevelt and others In the high realms of society. Mrs. Cortel you at present holds the record for the best custard pie, and happy Is the host ess who" can secure one of these un buyable creations for her Informal luncheons. The Cortelyou pies figure , often on the White House board and frequently the president entices his postmaster general to remain for luncheon by saying they are going to hare one of Mrs, Cortelyou' pies. Mrs. Shaw la one of the few women In the high official set who can make good bread. Indeed, Mr. Shaw would feel that her days of usefulness were over If bakers' bread were served In her house. Mrs. Root Is a One house keeper and Is noted for her practical knowledge on all subjects, cujlnary, economic and sanitary. Mrs. Taft, as becomes a daughter of that home-loving city of Cincinnati, Is skillful In domestic lore and Is a fine cook. Should her cook serve her as Sen ator Clark's did laBt year, desert her at Ave with a dinner party at eight, she could descend to the lower regions and cook a full course banquet ber-self. Mrs. Morton Leaves Washington. Mrs. Levi P. Morton has decided that life at the national caplal lacks the flavor of yore. After spending several thousand dollars having the mansion on Ilhode Island avenue re modeled, she has turned It over to the secretary of state and will divide the winter between southern Italy, Spain and New York. No residence In Washington has a more brilliant social history than the Mortons', llullt by Alexander Graham Bell, the Inventor, It was purchased by Mr. Morton when vice president. He pronounced it the most elegant and commodious house In Washington. It was afterward the scene of the wonderful triumphs of Countess War guerite Caimlnl and of the deplorable failure of her foster father, Count Cas sinl, the Russian ambassador, In the diplomacy relating to the RuBso-Japa-nese war. Mrs. Morton occupied her home for the greater part of last season and re ceived the homage of all society, from the White House down the list. Her daughter, formerly Duchess de Valen cay, now known as Miss Morton, waa pronounced by Sir Mlrtimer Durand aa the most beautiful American womaa whom he had ever seen. David Overmyer Is Desd. Tbpeka, Kan Jan 1X David Overmyer, one of the most prominent Democrat In the West, died at hla horns here Wednesday.
