Miss Wright was a latorite with Dodge City people. Her kindly offices in matters of charity will long be remem bered. Kindness was a diattnguished trait ol her character. Though an invalid her duty was impelled to ths relielef others. Modest, dlgnU Ird and courteous she was endeared to all who were acquaintance and friends.

The family and mends of the deceased have our warmest sjtnpathy in their sad berear e ment. The plucking of the lair flower of their household is a sad blow and may God in Ilia goodness assuage their grief and comfort them. NOTICE.

The service began on Monday morn ing. The Globe last week "flew all to pieces" over some supposed omission in Congressman Ryan's course in mail mstters. We are glad to state that prompt action was taken and the mail line established. Tbe coincidence the Globe's attack and the mail service is remarkable. There is noth ing like "itflcoecte," newspaper in-flooence." The railroad company has graded ground for the laying of thirteen miles of track for switches in the vicinity of the round house. Workmen are filling up the bottom of the main track and on this trade will be con rtractedelde tracks covering a space eighty feet in width. We should judge from Ihe number of switches that the railroad com pany intends doing a big business at Dodge cay. Rev. Adams Peabody delivered an inter esting discourse in the Union church Sun j :.. TV. Tinnnr furnishes his htaisn with food for thought sad rsBection. abovs nsmed parties. The Globe has not yet expressed itself on the Dolitical situation. We know the Globe is a thoroughbred and displays the Republican ticket at its masthead, but we are interested in knowing how the Globe feels on St. John, the co'orid candidate and the woman's suffrage question. Frost is a candidate for county attorney and this lack of political display may be attributed to that ca'ise. II tbe editor is sincere in nail ing tbe ticket at lbs masthead, he ought to give some expression of sentiment wby he does so. Tbe mere display of his flag may be a truce. We accord to him good mo tives. It isn't time for him to pat in. Ihe canvass is not warmed up yet. According lo the announcement made in the churches Sabbath evening a nnmber of the christian) ladies of this city, also by invi tation Bros.

She read those portions of scripture pertaining to woman ministry as found in the four gospels and then invoked God's blessing upon the meeiing. It was agreed that Ihe next meeting be held on Ye ednesdsy even ing at Sister Armstrong's and that lady del egated to lead the meeting.
