Work (or the people who work (or Abilene and are loyal to Itt upbuild ing. ssssssa This will be a great year (or the advancement of this city. Take hold and puah. Republicans who are Republicans from prlnolple will support the Re publican city ticket. The Reflectok is (or the straight Republican ticket and hopes to see every man on It elected. It is well to beware of the man who supports a party one year and tights Its candidates the next. The new Caseville and Southern may reach the Gulf yet and then Dick- oson will be a real railroad oenter. As station agent at Caseville and president of the Caseville & Southern the pass question will not worry J. B. Case much. A British scientist says the world it unusually quiet." He is evidently not aware that city election campaigns are on In Kansas. The wideawake young businessmen o( town are the ones who will forward its best interests. Live up to Abl- lene's possibilities, The Commercial olub has offered a "hospital site to the Woodmen of the World. With the splendid water here there It no such place In Kansas (or a hospital. The State temperance Union's monthly bulletin gives the names of several new applicants (or llquer 11' censes In Dickinson county. Why are they wanted P Somebody at Salina seems to have had a change of heart. Lafollette does not appear on next summer's . Chautauqua list of speakers. Instead is the Hon. Charles Curtis. - It is difficult to see much hope (or Burton pardon. The president says he will not grant It and Mr. Burton tayi he will not aocept It. That ought to settle the matter. Hall happy day a new kind of waist is ooming trom Paris, one that buttons in (ront. The Abilene dry goods merohant who first gets the new ityle in will have a remarkable trade.

Now there is nothing to prevent the merry wedding bells from ringing al the time. The bill providing (or a probata judge pro tern., agreeahle to the constitutional amendment adopted last year, has beoome a law. It meets ny emergencies by reason of the pro bat judge being unable beoauaa of sickness, absence or otherwise to per form hit duties. I Secretary Coburn gava the students tome ad vie about letter writing at the University last week. Mr. Coburn hat a special hatred of signa tures that nobody can read and aayt that this it a disease peculiar to champs, a disease that attacks bank cashiers very often. He laid one should not begin a letter with "Sir" nor end it with 'wpeotlully." What it hit idea of a good formula. . . Abilene t . ,-,; ' ' Bt WILLIAM AXLES WHITK. Abilene it on of the handsomest towns In Kansas. It contain! five thoutand of tha kindest, neighborly neorjle In Kantat. For the man in prosperity,. It hat a respeotful wel- come; and (or tha man in adversity, it hat the finest spirit of real charity and helpfulness that aver hat been shown in Kansas. More than that, Abilene hat contributed to the state of Kansas many decent men. It It good town la which to live and to die. Junction City Union: "At rule, editors are the first to hear of gossip, indiscretions of men and women, bun dreds of things totally unfit for pub lication, of the intrigue!, clandestine meetingi, night buggy ridet, young girls gone astray, and the flirtations of married men and women; in fact, all the tcandalt that come up. The average newspaper man generally finds out all the naup-hty doings, no matter how secretly they are planned or kept. If the papers would publish half the stuff they hear, there would be ten divorces where there It but one now. There would be social astra- clsin of manv who now thine at the particular bright ttart in upperdom. There would be shotgun matinees, lynching bees, hatchet parties, gore, imprisonment, desolation and misery. The editor learnt nearly all of the sin and hypocrisy of life and it is a won der that he believe! In man, woman, Many people continually 'find (ault with the newspapers when at a matter of faot they owe tbelr very ttandlng to the leniency of the editor and to the editorial watte basket." Just to show how the pure (ood law is working we olte these instances: The new slabs of bacon now come la beled, "Inspected by the United States government." What was called maple syrup last year is now oallod "Penoore Syrup; the cheap ground coffee pack ages now hare printed on the wrapper that they contain tome chicory. The pickles that used to come in white vinegar, are now put up in older vine gar. Paokages of cereals that former ly passed (or two pounds, now have printed the weight, twenty-eight ounces, on the outside. The legislature teems to have needed a oensor or copy-reader or something of the sort. A law Intend ed to facilitate the movement of stook readt that railroads "shall transport the same in a period of time not less than one hour (or eaoh IS miles of the entire distance." It It pretumed that this it to prevent jarring the flesh off the animalt by excessively swift traveling. If a freight train should run as fast at 20 miles an hour and so be loss than one hour going 16 miles we presume it will subject the road to punishment. If it it merely prlnter'i error it should be correoted before appearing In the ttatute bock. . Obituary. The laying to rest o( Frank E. Kinderdick markt tha patting of a most useful and Industrious life. Frank (at ha wat generally called by hit friends and acquaintances) wat born on a farm near Woodbine 86 yean ago, the ton of Henry Kinder dick, one of the early aettlera of thlt oounty. Ha loved the (arm and (arm life and wat very successful at what ha believed hit calling, nntll (ha mis fortune of hit left arm overtook him, which through nnknown cause be came affected and after consulting with a number of speoialibta at Kan sat City, Topeka and in this oounty, It had to be amputated. Thlt did not Th Republicans have done a fine thing In renominating thair oounoll men and scboolboard members whose terms eiplra this spring. These gen tlemen have worked hard (or th good of th town and hav given op much valuable time and effort for Abilene and I! they are willing to do thlt It It eminently proper to keep them In their plaoee. Tha Republicans of Abilene are proud of its representative In offioe and will loyally support the ward candidates named last night. Thlt it Abllene't time to make perma nent advancement.

After several successful yeart of business here he told out and located at Navarre and engaged In th lumber and hardware business. His success at thit place again shows hi honest business principles, hit Integrity and square deal methods. He built up a large and prosperous business here, ever on the lookout to give nis patrons the very best that was to be had and always ready to terve and help hit fellow men in every way possible. He had the confidence of everyone who came In contact with him and to meet him was to be his (riend. Hit untimely death came un expected and aa a shock to the com munity at well at to hit friends and relatives. All that medical skill and loving care could do was done (or Frank, but to no avail. Hit time wat up and even in the prime of manhood and at we ttand maurning at his grave we ask, why it It that one to useful to bit leliow citizens and his community, so much loved by his family and friends, so honest and upright, so respected by every one, should pass in the prime of llfeP But those who were at his bed side in the last hours of his life have the satisfaction of knowing that Frank was ready and willing to go and meet his Master.
