At tbe solicitation of many Republi cans, I hereby announce myself as a candidate tor State Senator, from this district, subject to the action of the He publican Convention. : H. S GitANUEB. Tbe Lenora Leader, 'in its 'issue of last week, in a leader oh1 the Senatorial jues tiop , does Mr. (j ranger jfnanifest injus tice, on both the question 6t his standing and on matters growing out of the Con gressional situation and tbe U. S. Sen atorship. We do not know, of course, what the Leader bases its opinions upon but it is fair to presume it will be willing to correct its misstatements when called to its attentio.. . In the first place Mr. Granger was a supporter of Judge Ilanback, both before the county convention and after, and of couie remains so. In the next place it was m ith his advice and app-oval that 1 he convention of last Saturday, after its composition being shaped almost ex clusively upon the question of who should receive the delegation from this county to the Oberlin convention, and resulting in 9 to 17 in his favor, that the convention passed a resolution en dorsing Hon. .loan J. Ingalis for his own succes.-or. In view of the aliove facts, it seems to us that it would be fair to drop out of the discussion, these questions, and (ad mitting that both he and Hon. 11. Hamilton stand on common ground) view the matter of who shall be Senator troni the stand point of who will best represent the interests of the district should he be chosen as Senator, Against Mr Hamilton we have no word to say, and should he be chosen as our cand. date the IIekai.d will support him ;is heartily as it knows how, hut Mr Granger is also a man against whom no word can be said and in whose favor much might be said, and the Leader and other papers of the District should re member that what is said while smart ing under defeat by a defeated candi date or his intimate friends should always be received with some degree of allowance.; Their sober.second thought, like ours on the Congressional question, will do much better to follow.

Moulton and .Johnson were . up in our country tome time ago. Some vsicked men suggest their friendly visit was due to Senatorial aspiration.-. We are glad to see among us again, Charlie Cook, who successlnlly led the young ideas last winter at the Crow school house. After he closed his school he, with his brotner and sister, went to Gillet College. The Democratic rank and file of this cemmuuity received some reinloice ments lately in the lorm of a bran new boy at,J. Kumbaugh's house. Joe says it weighs forty pounds, but tho.e who are acquainted with, tne jovial Kli Per kins ot Plum creek, will make an allow ance ti 82 1-2 pouuds of excitement. A friend and brother-in-law of A. S. Hart, lroni. New York, paid him a flying vi-sitlate jy. His, brother, Charlie Hart, is also here from isebraska, engaged in putting up a house on his homestead. I he citizens of this vieinty celebrated the Fourth in lJluinraers grove on Pium creek. Our Young men deserve great credit for having tilled the grove with seats, swings, etc., etc. They brought a good supply of lemonade and candy, freeto all. Kven Young Amer ica leeeived a supply of the inevitable lire crackers. At half past ten. the audiei.ee was called to outer by S. Hill, Ulurshall ot the day . The exercises were opened by prajer offered by Lkler Aiiic hell followed by the singing of "Ode to America," and Beautiiul flag." After a tew appropriate remarks espec ially addressed to the children and joungiolks, the Declaration of Inde pendence was read. At the begiuning oi the reading the sun, which had been hidden all morning in a clouded &ky, suddenly burst torch , streaming its gol den raS through the darfc foliage , as though wishing by its ure?ence to help pay a iitting uibuie to the heroes of During the leading ot tboe heroic resolves ot a bundled jears ago, every word of it distinctly tailing upon the ears of a hushed audience under the grand old walnut and elm trees, silent witnesses of bygone days, when wne's thoughts would naturally ntt back to the glorious p.'st. the scene took on an aspect of rural grandeur, akin to the sublime. Alter ihe reading was over busy matrons began unpacking baskets and boxes, and m a short lime a table, bountiiuily supplied, was spread, which did ample justice. During the dinner Aunty i'luniuier and Cornelius, her son put in a most welcome appearance with a tjountiiul .supply, of cofiee and tea. The afternoon was spent in various ways, the children enjoying the swings', the oid toiks social chats, and tne young folks ijetook themselves to a neighbor ing house where' they enjoyed a pleasant dance. ; . ; TATTLEK. "The above communication should have appeared in last weeks issue, but for some reason did arrive at this post ollice till Friday. Kd. Ash Creek and vicinity. Every one is so busy harvesting now that there is hardly time for newspaper correspondence, but we will try to say our little piece us usual. Land hunters are plenty in our parts now, and they fceem to be well pleased with the country. Gentlemen you will have to "conie'down with the stamps" if you get our farms now. However, some oi our citizens have been disposing of some of their real estaie, thereby easing themselves of financial burdens, and at the same time putting themselves in better shape to help develop the country . The Sharer brothers are pretty good I fellows, but what right have they to raise barley so thick that the air can't circulate between the shocks. Are not the lives of us working people of any accouut. The Granger fever is still raging in these parts; tnero seems but a small show for Mr. Moulton . won dor if he dont feel a little like the old fellow when he met the bear . He felt that if he had eer needed prayer he needed it then, but he felt that as he had been rather "off" in his Christian lite his prayers would hardly bring him the desired "aid. So he thought to compromise th mat ter and his prayer was as follows: "O Lord, if yer can't help me please don't help the ba'r, but jist keep still and yer '11 see the durnd'st ba'r fight yer ever see in these diggings." Now Mr. Moulton-doubtless ieels that if the powers that be just stand off and watch, he will have some -show in the great b'ar tight at Oberlin , but it is our opinion tnat he will get badly chawed, up'1 Pei. Brush Creek. Editor Herald : We are all rejoicing over our crops of small grain in this vicinity. Fall grain is all harvested an'. spriDg grain is ready to harvest. We had a heavy rain here Saturday night and the p rospects are now that we will have the largest crop of corn this fall that has ever been raised in this neck o' the woods. The M. E. Sunday School on Starva tion creek held a picnic in ' Hanson's grove a few days ago. Your corres pondent wts a participant on that occa sion, and 1 must say that we bad a very fileasant and enjoyable time. Pev . Al en from the Burg v:as with us and gave us some very appropriate remarks, also F. C. Johnson and' family, from Ash creek were present. H.. Rogers is repairing his old mill with the intention of threshing a grist or two this fall. Mr. John Finch who has stood test for nine years, having started as a poor man, is now the owner of 26 cattle, 7 horses and 25 hogs. Hs has built and finis-hed a good stone house, one of the best farms in this vicinity all clear ot debt. "A rolling tone gathers no moss." Wa understand that one" of the Phil- j n iiiiiiiitnii ii i in ijiiiimiii. ! li-psburg druggists, while on bis weyto ting isiana a lew days ago, discovered.: a large mineral spring in Dayton -tuwrn ship, near the south line. Also that, he he intends to build a home, put in a oda lountaiD,and make of it aplacefor summer resort, Wid some one rise to explain. x - A few weeks ago Ped laid down a few rules which he advised us all to live, up to. They aie all good, but there are ! two, more important, that he forgot, or it may be they did not suit his taste. They read, as. louows: ''Stand up to yom - agreements,' and 'Practice what you .preach." . Mr. Charles Tracy had the misfortune. to accidentally get bis toot tramped by one of his horses and he has not been able to walk but very little since. J. M. Warner is . doing some good farming this season as. usual. The result is, he- has never failed to raise a good crop, L. B. Roland has a new St: Paul bind- er, which he says is is an "example ma chine." He also informs us that it is his "contentions," if nothing "Vprehmil-; ers," to sell binders for. the St. Paul Harvoster co. next season. " ' " . Some of our neighbors on Starvation creek were harvesting. on Sunday last. If they were -heathen, we might, excuse them, but they are enlightened. enough to know better. We think if the law was enforced as it ought to be that it would put a stop to this laying around Saturday just to get to work op Sunday. A good citizen will abide, by the laws of his country. . - . v July 14. - Greengorn. From the Solomon Valley. Belmont, July 17, 'tL Perhaps a few items trom this part of the valley would be treated with leni ency by your Header or at least the presumption - will be duly accredited to the ignorance of the writer in regard to such matters , but I am anxious to say to the boys that so far as the . seasons are concerned that which we have long waited for is here. The y ear of Jubilee am Come! Shake! .Never before since the first settler laid off his coat and went to work on the banks of the Solomon has the pros pects for crops at this time of the year been so promising or tho?e already ma tured, so good. The rye crop is simply immense, such as only Kansas can pro duce. We saw jjncie Henry Ferritt yesterday exhibiting some specimens of that grain in the streets of Loan, meas uring seven fert nine inches in height. The fall wheat is equally good as is also spring wheat , potatoes and all kinds of vegetables and small grain, while the corn, sorghum and all other crops are almost assured. Keal estate is rapidly changing hands and of course rising in value. The building boom has struck our town. The prairie schooner has once more resumed navigation on the old t&miliar trail and no more is heard the wailing cry of grasshoppers and drouth. THe rye and fall wheat here is nearly all harvested and much of it; already in stack. More anon. . . - . , - O. S. v Hillside. . Thinking you; would like to hear from this part of the county, I will try to write a few lines for you. We had a heavy rain last iiiglit, and crops look fine to-day. i ' 7-v? Harvest has begun and all the ma chines have as much its they can do to take care of the crops, and their some jrrain will be wasted on account oft be ing too ripe. Mr. T. U. Lnrkin, MrJ Frank Bor rell and Mr.' James Johnson have bought binders this lull. - Mr. Morgan had 'the; badi luck to get one of his colts hurt on - a reaper last week. Misses Georgia Mitchell and Bate Larkin are getting well again utter be ing sick all spring and. summer,; . Mr. Miles Hill has just . finished a new sod Jiou.se on liis place. Look out, girls! Now ho has the cage he will be looking for a bird to-out in it. Jennie Larkm has returned home from the Mound where she has been at woik. She avs it seems ;;gijod to be back again. Hope she can til ways sav so. If this does not go into the, waste basket, perhaps we will write agaiii. July 13, '84. U'CLi: Jui:. Marvin and Vicinity. W. H.

The follow inr questions were taken up and dis cussed by the .association: Question, "'Should we feed sheep for mutton or for wool." This question was gen erally discussed by the association, much interest being manifested by the members. Next came ur the cmcstion as to how "Can we best despose of our wethers." It was the -general opin ion of tbe members that it was best to take them out of the herd early in the fall atid feed them for market, feeding grain such as rye, corn and oats, rye was a favorite grain with all the members tor feeding purposes. The question "What kind ot bucks should be used for breeding purposes Was. continued until meeting. On the question of representing- the sheep industry of the association at the next Phillips County fair was re ferred to Willard Hanson,. R. M. Baker and John Rooney, as , a com mittee to confer with the officers of the fair. It was thought best by many of the meinbers to .have a good" showing on exhibition. Geo, V.
