Judge kPetera, Congressman from this dis

and who will receive the appointment of
Receiver we are not advised. The office
will be located at Garden City. The boun
dary lines of the district will be established
by an order from the President, and will in
clude the area of Ford, Finney, Hamilton
and Seward counties, and some of the unor
ganized counties north of these. The busi
ness of the office will be limited for a time,
at least-; the salary of either office being fix
ed at the minimum rate of $500 per year;
and some perquisites will increase this sum.

year of the publication of the Dodge City
Times. As we haYe been at considerable ex
pense in the purchase of two new presses
and type, it will be- quite acceptable to re
ceive the small sums owing us on subscrip
tion or account. We shall require money
to meet our obligations, and we know our
friends and patrons will make prompt pay
ments. The increased business and popular
favor accorded the Times has induced us to
make an outlay for new material. We shall
endeavor to continue to merit the confidence
and best wishes of the public; and shall is
sue the enlarged paper to meet the demands
of our business, and to gratify the pride and
desire of ourselves and of our friends.
The dispatches indicated that the stock
meeting at Dodge City this week would be
Veil attended, and we suppose it was, and in
due time the Index will give its readers the
most important proceedings. For some un
accountable reason the Dodge City papers
nearly ignored the Medicine Lodge meeting.
It did not matter much, howerer. This
town will yet make the way station on the
Santa Fe wish it were dead. Medicine

The degree of selfishness is exceedingly
exemplified this season, throughout. Is the
example of the towns only a slight indiffer
ence caused by a want of interest? We are
sorry that the Index hasn't been provided
with the reports.

The just now popular word dude, mean-
an empty-headed, languid-mannered
young swell who bangs his hair, proves to
be no foreign importation, but, like many
another expressive term, to be of good New
England parentage. The word (pronounced
in two syllables) has been used in the little
town of Salem, N. H., for twenty years past
and it is claimed was coined there. It is
common there to speak of a dapper young
man aa a "dude fellow," of a small animal
as "a little dude," of a sweetheart as "my
dude" and of an aerthetic youth of the
Wilde type as a dude. But how the word
attained so sudden and widespread a noto
riety puzzels Salem. Its rival at New York
is credited to a disgusted Englishman, who
remarked, after visiting arich club, that
the young raen were all "dudes."

An exchange says a boy will tramp 247
miles in one day on a rabbit hunt and be
limber in the evening, when, if you ask him
to go across the street and borrow Jones1
two-inch auger he will be as stiff as a meat-
block. Of course he will. And he will go
swimming all day, and stay in the water
three hours at a time, and splash and dive
and paddle and puff, and next morning
he will feel that an unmeasured insult has
been offered him when he is told by his
mother to wash his face carefully, Jso as not
to leave the score of the ebb and flow so
plain as to be seen under the gills. And
he'll wander around a dry creek bed all the
afternoon piling up a pebble fort, and nearly
die off when his big sister wants him to
please pick up a basket of chips for the
parlor stove, and he'll spend the biggest
part of the day trying' to corner a stray
mule or a bald-back horse for a ride, and '
feel that all life's charms have fled when it
comes time to drive the cows home; and
he'll turn a ten-acre lot upside-down for ten
inches of angle-worms, and wish for the
voiceless tomb when the garden demands his
attention. But all the same when you want
a friend that will stand by you and sympa
thize with you, and be true to you in all
kinds of weather, enlist one of the small
