The Depot Burned The.Rock Island depot was quickly and completely destroyed by Are early Tuesday morning. The Are was dis covered about 1:30 arid had gained considerable headway at that time. It seemed to start In the roof near the north end of the building and being dry and inflamable spread very rapidly. The alarm was given as soon as discovered and a crowd quickly gathered and the fight -began. The boys at the depot saved all the prop erty possible. The money drawer and SMhie of the more Importait office fixtures were carried out but the rec ords were destroyed. From the first fears for the safety of the hotel were entertained and the boys with the hose guarded it carefully. What little wind there was carried the sparks away from rather than toward the hotel and It escaped without catching. Several cars near the depot were burned slightly and two of them were badly damaged. 1 Telegraphic communications were cut off, but the operator went to Dana and sent In the orders by the telephone. . The line was quickly re paired. The depot will doubtless' soon be replaced by a new oue. Some exten sive improvements have been planned by the company and it Is hoped that that the new depot will be a larger and more convenient building. The loss while serious will not In terfere with traffic and all necessary supplies will bo sent from headquar ters as soon as possible.

An Apostrophy to Spring. Sweet Spring! Gentle Springtime! We bail thee with delight.1 . It is the time when we take a bat' rel stave and rake up old personal It let) with the town cow and the aged hen.. It is also the time when we rake up the over ripe boot, gum overshoes, tin cans and things, and send up a sweet smelling smudge from the back yard: ' Yes, ma'am. We hall thee like Sam Hill! " Thou cometh at a time when the worms worketh In the dried apples and the sorghum worketb in the bar rel.

Last Friday Old Doreas histed his tail over the dashboard . and came snorting down the hills from tbe north and nipped the early angleworm and tho large premature blowfly in the bud.' But as we write, a striped hornet has come out of a crack In the wall and stands heating his stlngeree in tbe warm sun. Presently ho will go away in search of the pale faced dude with lilac tie and linen pants. As soon as all danger of frost Is past the town marshal will plant the dead cats two in a bill In the gloaming and the freckle minded old man will pLnt bis potatoes in the moon.

RossvIIle News. Three propositions to amend tbe constitution of Kansas will be submit ted to the voters next fall.

The second page of the booklet contains the following "Advertising Pointers:". No store ever fell "behind." If the advertising was adquatej carefully planned, prepared and placed. - Mercantile adveretslng must bo of the "continued in our next" kind that Is, If today's busy store Is to bo a continued story. A small amount of newspaper adver tising space is tbe right thing for a small business. That's the only kind of business It will lit. "The merchant should not give the people the Impression that on some days of tbe week llure Is very little business done at his store. Spiritless advertising reduced space will give such an Impression. The battleship with armor, arma ment and crew would boDretty help less it without ammunition. A big store with goods and clerks and deliv ery system would be Just as helpless without newspaper advertising. ' 'Admitting that ndwspaper adver tising will sell goods and people have gait arguing about that the question of bow much newspaper advertising you should do becomes becomes one of how much goods you want to sell. That's all there is to It. .. The first big expenditure a mer chant makes for advertising makes his teeth chatter. Its the same when a boy takes bis first plunge and tries o learn toswlm.
