JULY 24.
Harvest is almost over.
Green corn is in the market.
Everybody seems to be preparing for
the flash time that is near at ixand.
D. C. Clark ha3 cut, with a header
450 acre9 of grain this season- Verily
Dave is a rustler.
Several complain of severe colds
which is an unusual thing this time of
the year.
We would add that our town would
.assume more metropolitan airs if some
of the obnoxious hog pens were removed
irom so near the public streets.
Last week we failed to mention the
departure for her home in Junction
City, of Mrs. A. L, McLeod, mother of
Mrs. G. A. Spaulding.
Our delegates to the Senatorial Con
vention came back this morning well
satisfied with their part in the work of
the convention, and so are we . ' "
G. A. Spaulding has purchased Dr.
Mallett's tine buggy team. We would
like very much to ride behind those
splendid roadsters some day, George.
Last Thursday, during the unusual
rise in the Solomon, caused by the re
cent rains, a large break was caused by
the flood i-n the Logan Mill dam.
Considerable grain has been stacked
this week, most all the small grain that
could be cut is now in the shock. There
are still a few pieces of oats and spring
grain to cut.
Mrs. Mary L. Foling, daughter-in-law
and Mrs. Mary M. McCown, of Ripley,
W. Va., daughter of N. Poling of this
place, are visiting in the city, and will
remain until cold weather.
Harvest if about over and the sweet
Toicc of the threshing machine is begin
ing to float away on tne pure Kansas
breezes , stacking is going on at a rapid
rate, and everybody seems to be as
busy as bees.
Eunice Bailey, 8 year old daughter of
Al Bailsy of this place
while visiting her uncle's family in Nor
ton, fell from a horse and broke her leg
one day last week . Her father went j
out to see her Monday and has not yet j
returned. j
G jorgc Veeh and family, of Mound
township, left yesterday morning for
Minneapolis Minn, to take in the Nation
al Encampment and visit friends in
other parts of the state. Mr. Veeh de
layed this trip to the last day on account
of the press of his farm work.
George VV. Young left Phillipsburg
Monday evening for the great G. A. Ii.
Encampment at Minneapolis, Minn.,
uud while gone will visit Chicago and
other small cities and have a good time
generally. We hope that George may
et back all right and that he will still
be Young when he returns.
Miss Jennie LelFmgwell, of Ft. Col
lins, Colorado, is stopping in town
:i few day vistitiiitf the families of C.
II. Leili ngwell and A. C. McClung
who are cousins of hers. She goes to
'Williamsburg, Ohio, where she will
pend the balance of the summer vis
iting friends.
W. W. Hanson, of Mound township,
sheep inspector of this county, called at
these head quarters Tuesday to renew
his faith in the Herald, and also sub
scribe for the American Farmer. Mr.
II. is one of the old time citizens, whose
good opinions are highly prized by us,
coming as they do from one who is just
ly entitled to be termed a leading citi
zen. J.. W Bowman, who bought county
Clerk Lowe's tarm in Mound township,
was in town yesterday and took occa
sion to call in and subscribe for the
Herald. Mr. Bowman is an old sol
dier, having served in the 75th Indiana
infantry during the 4late onpleasant-
m ess," was a good soldier and, unless
we are deceived, will make a good cit
izen. A. K. Riley, of Harlan, Iowa, a lead
ing real estate man of Shelby county,
Iowa, has been stopping a few days as
the guest of Mr- Morse, Cashier of the
Phillips County Bank, and through

vestments in Phillips county farms , he
being delighted with our magnmcent
crops and fine country. We hope his
investments may prove all that he could
Last Saturday, in company with J,
B. Woods, we visited our sister town of
Marvin, and found the merchants all
jubilan! over the splendid crop pros-
Dects. Marvin has four general stores
two drusr . stores, one restaurant, one
hardware store, one blacksmith shop.
one hotel and two livery stables. This
is a nice little town and is inhabited by
as intelligent and law abiding citizens
as can bo found in Northwest Kansas,
G. A, Spaulding is as yet the only
person who has publicly announced
himself a candidate for Clerk of the
District Court. We think this is as it
should be, as in the history of the older
counties in the state it is customary
when a Jlerk: oi the Court meets all
the requirements, as Mr, Spaulding does,
to retain him for a number of years, as
the office is one that requires a great
deal of practical experience. Mr.
Spauldings official record is good and
his oooks are an nonor to mm, ana to
Phillips county.
The Senatorial Convention for the
SSth District, held at Oberlin last Tues
day, nominated II. S. Granger, of this
county , on the nineteenth ballot, his
principal competitor heing Hon, John
It. Hamilton, of Norton county, either
of whom had they been chosen would
have done credit to the district, but as
Mr. Granger was the candidate sup
ported by the Herald before the con
vention, ve, of course, are well pleased
with the final result, and feel sure that
the district will never have cs.use regret
Iho choice of Mr. Granger as their
fctandsnl Bearer.

This week we have the pleasure
of anouncing the name of G. A,
Spaulding for re-election to the office
of Clerk of the District Court. Mr.
Spaulding has already filled the office
which he now seeks for two terms.
When we say he has filled the office
of District Clerk, '.we do sd with a
desire to be understood, as meaning
all that the language would imply.
The office is one of .much greater im
portance than the emoluments would
indicate and when an officer is found
who so faithfully and efficiently fills
an office of so great importance as that
it is a good policy to let well enouuh
alone and try as few experiments as
possible. The records of the office
are a model of excellence as every at
torney 3r other person who has had
business there will know and in the
;our years that Mr. S. has held the
office, we have yet to hear the first
complaint as to any part of his admin
istration. He ought to be re-nominated
by acclamation.
It is a fact Well worthy of serious con
sideration that D. A. Huling is hard at
work with sledge hammer blows upon
high prices. Down they tumble, one
by one. but they have got to come-'
There must be rbom made for a heavy
fall stock, and one of Hiding's hobbies
is to close out al?nnseasonable goods or
goods about to become unseasonable, at
some price, any price, give them away,
anything to get them off and fill up
with a bright new stock. Now as there
are a great many unseasonable goods
that can be used for the latter part of
this season and laid away for next, it
pays, and it pays big, to take advantage
of such chances. Summer coats at half
price , light prints at less thon cost, and
slippers and light shoes off a third,
sometimes a half, and a hundred other
articles that must be cleared out. It
pays to sell them off and gei clear of
them. It pays you to buy them for the
rest of this, and for next season . Sta
ple goods not exactly at bottom prices
for the bottom is gone, but away below
that. Remember D. A . Huling's is the
place to invest if you want tip top spe
cial hanrains.

It now only requires the work of the

will be invincible .
Last Saturday Judge Pratt met with
quite a serious accident. While stand
ing upon a box making some repairs to
his granary, he fell seriously spraining
one of his knees and otherwise injuring
himself, so that he has been confined to
his house. It was at first hought that
.his knee was dislocated, but did not
prove lo be so. We believe he is doing
as well as could be expected.
Mr, Lew Ginger gave one of his per
formances at the court house last Mon
day night, and fully demonstrated that
he is an artist of much merit and ought
to have had a much better house. To
see any one of his battle charts and
have them explained and illustrated is
worth mora than twice the cost of ad
mission. As a commedian he is a suc
cess. We understand that he designs
returning some time in the near future-,
when he will give several performances
under the aueplees of the G. A. R., of
which he is a member. We predict a
full house for him if he does.
Stacking of Hay and Grain.
My attention was called a few days
ago to the careless manner in which
many farmers do their stacking. This
is a fiuhject that farmers could study
more closely to advantage. Nothing
tells more upon the profits of a hay crop
than careless stacking. Every farmer
should be able to stack his own grain
whether it be wheat, rye., . oats, barley
or flax. The objeet in learning is not
so much to build a nice looking stack
as one that will hed the ram well and
keep the hay sound. If the two can be
combined so much the better. But if
either must be neglected, let it be the
looks. The main point in wheat stack
ing is to keep the middle full, and then
have the inside bundles packed suffici
ently tight to keep out the driving rains.
The middle should be kept high so that
when the stack settles (and they will
settle a good deal) that the inside will
still remain the highest, and the outside
bundles readily shed water. To begin
with yon want a good foundation. Rails
and posts are the foest for this purpose ,
and the foundation should be buit up at
least one foot from the ground to keep
it from drawing moisture, and it should
be sufficiently strong to sustain any
weight that you wish to put upon it. A
good bulge should he put out five or six
feet from tje ground and then drawn
gradually in. Wheat can be stacked
when damp without lamage, and when
in this condition is easier worked. It
will dry out in the stack without
injury to the grain.
Oats on the other hand must be thor
oughly cured and -dry . - When stacked
wet, even after being well cured, they
will mould and rot. I would advise the
putting of oats under -shelter when it
can be done. I prefer giving my oats
the barn, and stacking the hay, espec
ially when the oats ,re designed to be
fed without threshing, and feeding them
in sheaf I find most profitable. Of the
grass clover requires the most care in
stacking. Unless unusual pains are
taken clover should be topped off with
something: else. It is very difficult to
stack clover and top off the stack com
pletely, and have it kept for any consid
erable length of time, without some oth
er topping. I have found red top to
make an admirable covering. With
timothy, oats and other grasses the prin
cipal point is to keep all sides tramped
alike, so that in settling: the
stack will stand up straight. The most
prolific cause of hay spoiling in the
stock is the settling:, leaving: one side
flatter than than the other,
allowing: the water to soafe in
instad of running off. The stack should
be drawn in as resnilarly as posible from
all sides so that the top will be in the
center and slope down evenly on all
side3. Where this is well done and the
stack h a3 been well tramped, there is
little dunsrer of hay spoiling:. Stock
