On the road from McPherson Mr. Inglls saw little what that promised a aHin anil the wheat fields north of Salina looked comparatively good in comparison with those soutu oi the city. In making the estimate for the state he threw out tne wir ta.n counties of Central Kansas. He said that outside these counties the rest of the state would have a lair average crop provided conditions In the future were fairly good. Th aroo irn of wheat in tne mir- teen counties which were thrown out h. .otimatna made by Mr. Inglls, .r aa 1.477.000. This WOUld leave $6,000,000 acres is wheat in the rest of the state. He claimea wuu .vortu conditions these 6,000,000 .nr.. would vleld 70,000.000 Dusnei". The thirteen central counties last year ralBed nearly 25,000,000 bushel. Mr. Inglls did not make an estimate on the thirteen counties wnne nere. IN FAR-OFF ZANZIBAR , DICKINSONIANS VISITED Elder J. N.

We drew near towards the town Just after the sun was un. and It was Indeed a beautiful sight; the buildings In the business part of the town, bunt or mud and stone and whitewashed and ths beautiful tropical growth make it oulte nlcturesaue. Here there were about two hundred and sixty more Indian Dassenaers taken on which required almost the entire day, as thev. with their abundance ot lug' gage, were all taken on from small hosts, and ud one flight of steps; and seemingly every one was looking out for number one; these with the na tive boatmen made a veritable babel, I wonder what the one was like which we read of In the early history of the world? During this time we spent several hours on shore to see the town and a few of the places of most interest; were In the English Mission building, Medicines that aid nature are al MBa moat .iirn...f ul nhamharlaln'l Couch Remedy acts on this plan.

The mer chants have Joined In a movement to n.,t .it .torca on a cash basis. They claim there Is too much dead-beating. In a statement they say: "Th merchants of this city are carrying on their books more than $100,000.00 In accounts. , inis amonnt has been carried from year to year and represents Just that much dead capital from which the merchants are receiving no returns. It is a direct loan to tho public. This forces many merchants to borrow money at the banks, at Interest, in order to meet their obligations. "On top of this loan to the public there is a large depreciation. It has been conservatively estimated that Herlngton business men have lost In the last five years throngn oaa accounts, about $50,000.00. This money could not have come out ot the pockets of the business men it was a part of the cost of doing business and of necessity have been paid by ths customers." n.n.
