Trims' Studio Showing Handsome Work in Newest Styles or In Something new in photography that is attracting much attention in the home photography inaugurated by W. C. Triggs. The ordinary pho tograph fails to give the personality of the subject because, there is a consciousness of the gallery and often the expression Is too much affected thereby. ' This is especially true of children and that is why so many pictures of the little folks are not successes. The new photography instead of taking the child to the gallery takes the gallery to the home and in the sitting room, parlor bedroom library the photograph is taken natural surrounding's. This is as good for older persons as for chil dren, but works especially fine with 'the little folks. Mr. Triggs has been exceedingly successful, in this and has taken many home photos that are being greatly admired and are equal to those taken by the big city galleries. They are natural and that is the test of the photo graph. It may be said that they are the best photos ever taken in the town . and everybody who wants a real photograph that will give the most perfect satisfaction should see the new style of photos and you will certainly be pleased. ' Several of the new photos are seen in the show case at Triggs" studio, on North Broadway, east side. dw SAFER TO BUY A MOTOR CAR LICENSE Owners of motor cars who have n't paid licenses, if there are any who have neglected it, ought to see about it. Secretary of State Charles Sessions Is threatening to investi gate things in Leavenworth county, Motorcycles, Mr. Sessions said in a recent interview at Leavenworth, are more dangerous than automo biles and many of the owners of the pop-pops have no licenses. One way to find out whether or not all cars and cycles are licensed is . to look over the tax roll. The fine for violation of the license law is $50. But Mr. Sessions doesn't mention Dickinson county. Communion Postponed. The communion service which ' was to have been held at the Luth' eran church in Abilene and at St. James in the county, has been post poned to Oct. 12. 1891 and have eight children, the eldest 20 years old. The court, granted a divorce to the defendant in the divorce suit of John -Bardeaux vs. Lena Bardeaux, negroes, with f 25 a month alimony, without attorney fees. The divorce was granted the defendant on her cross-petition; She asserted that in the eight years that the couple have been married, the husband has bought no clothes for the wife or child and that the only money he has ever given them is 84. A divorce was refused Martha Chrlstner who sued for divorce from Ananias Chrlstner alleging non-support. She further alleged that three days after their marriage last De cember at Herington, Mr. Chrlstner told his wife that he did not feel it right to live with her because she was a divorcee. A six-minute divorce case was tried this noon. It was the suit of Walter B. Huff vs. Rosa E. Huff. One of the charges in the petition was dropped. The defendant did not appear, and after the testimony of two witnesses had been taken the divorce was granted the plaintiff. Only , six minutes try the case. were needed to FATHER MUST CONSENT TO MINOR MARRIAGES Many people are under the im pression that the consent of either parent entitles a minor to the right to demand a marriage license. This is not the case, however, according to Probate Judge Tappen. "Every day or so some minor ap plies for a license with the moth er s written or personal consent, Judge Tappen said. "And by law have to refuse the permit, for if the father is alive his consent is com. pulsory. Some outsider must also witness the father's signature if the consent be written. Of course if the father has abandoned the family and the mother is the head of the fam ily I accept her consent but when possible the father's consent is re quired." Another thing Judge Tappen de sires to have cleared is the fact that physician's certificates are not re quired of those applying for mar riage licenses. Very often, he says, some minister or doctor, who has been asked regarding this matter by prospective groom, calls him up wanting to know If the health certi ficate is required. The law making this necessary fell down in the sen ate after passing the house at the last session of the legislature. DESPITE HIGH CORN .

Brewer entertained Tuesday evening with a 6 o'clock dinner in compliment to Mrs. Frank Lott of Kansas City, who has been Tisitlng Mrs. Brewer. Out of town guests were Mrs. Frank Brlcker of Salina and Mrs. Haldtrson of Giasco. Covers were laid for Mrs. Frank Lott, Mrs. Frank Brlcker, Mrs. Hal derson. Mrs. H. A. Hockensmith, Mrs. H. E. Matteson, Mrs. Otis Lan des, Mrs. Helen Kehler, Mrs. W. L. Dunnett, Mrs. Will Smith, Miss Kehler, Mrs. W. H. Schrock, Mrs. W. H. Barber, Mrs. H. L. Humphrey, Mrs. J. D. Edwards, Mrs. Markly, months ago. The success of this farmer, however, is unlikely to in duce other Kansans to bring Arkan sas stock hogs into their state this year, at least. The Kansas corn crop is so light hat a liberal num ber of Sunflower farmers are offer ing their stock hogs for sale, so it is not necessary for Kansans to go out of their state for Immature porkers. It is encouraging, bow- ever, to note that the number of Kansas farmers who are trying to dispose of their thin hogs Is much smaller than before the recent rains. Kansas farmers who unloaded their thin hogs after the drouth of 1911 regretted their action later, and maybe they will finish more of them the coming year than commonly supposed. Even with corn very high, present prices for good hogs are yielding rjofits to their pro ducers. Drovers Telegram. proved that he was a good, marks man by the three squirrels he car ried. Mr. Fox appeared and cap tured the trespasser, mounted a horse and marched the soldier into town behind a shotgun. He turned him over to the county authorities at Junction City on the charge of trespass. Mr. Fox says that maraud ers have frequently raided bis wa termelon patch. One time, he says, he shot at a trespasser and the man can. wno nave Dickinson county for many years and who are leaving Tuesday, Oct. 7, for Texas where they expect to maVA their future home.
