Last week the tlrm which is captallzed at 120,000 was chartered under the name of Chas. W. Hull Mercantile Company. Tak n to Asylum. Probate Judge L. E. Countryman left Tuesday for Wlnfield, Kansas taking Willie Sldell who has been an Inmate of the poorhouse for several years, to the asylum for feeble mind ed. Sldell was a serious charge and he lis now where he properly belongs. His father was sent to the insane asy lum several years ago and died shortly after. Fred Veeb who had accompan ied a shipment of stock to Kansas City5 will probably go to Wlntield also. Corn Acreage Large. The amount of land in this county planted to corn this spring Is larger fian for several years. Many of the farmers who had grown wheat for sev eral years thought it advisable to change the crop for a season and quite a large percent of that sown was wlr ter killed or failed to sprout' This gives the county an unusually large corn acreage and should the lesson prove to be a good one for corn as now seems probable, Phillips counuy will take a high rank among the com pro duclng counties of the 'state.

A profound secret is someth'ng which everyone confides in whispers to his or her close friend, to be In turn confided to all their close friends. In spite of all these precautions it some times leaks out. Oberlin times. A Baltimore court has decided that the appearance of a new baby in a flat where the lease contained a "no children" clause makes the parents liable to ejectment. Tne matter can be easily adjusted, however, by send ing the baby to a foundlings' hospital. K. C, Jouanal. Payne's Celery Compound company are car y ng advertken enti :n several dallv DaDers. In a recent one Is a picture of F, M. Lockard supposed to be the ex-postmaster, e -u ate senator, ex-member of the board of charit ies, as he appeared after taking half bot tle of the stuff. Lockard doesn't like the picture, and he never took a drop of the medlclae. Mr. Lockard ii a Sixth district man, ahd is goodlook-. ing, much better than the one in the picture. He may bring suit for libel. Harry Root in State Journal. Anna Carlson, in a soliloquizing mood, says: "Were you over tempted to think that the editor was indulg ing in personal 'digs' when you saw something in the paper which seemed to fit your case 1 Discard the thought Remember the old saying that: 'Many asbaftat random sent Hods mark the archer little meant.' Why the other day we read of a Texas editor who published the Ten Command ments in his paper, by request, with the result that he lost half of bis sub scribers before he bad time to ex plain la the next Issue that no person al reflections were Intended." The shortest will ever filed in the probate court at Atchison, the Globe says was as follows; "Wiil-I give all my property to my wife." To this the maker signed his name, bad it witnessed by two parties and dated it. He has no children, and it is doublf u) if a strouger will could be drawn. Some wills cover several pages ot type-written matter. Occasionally an attorney feels tbat be mubt strlnn things out to earn his pay. Here is another will: "I give, devise and be queath all my property real, personal, and mixed, together with all tene ments, hereditaments appurtenaocw thereunto belonging or otherwise ap pertaining to, wherever situated to have and to bold, for all time and forever." Than follows a long des cription f each lot or tract of land and each separate piece of personal property. This Is the sort of a will that is generally broken. Star. Whenever a newspaper tells the simple truth about a bad man who is trying to get Into s public place where be can steal, the truth Is called an "attack." When a newspaper warns the people against a bad roan, the newspaper gets the reputation of belnir vicious. No matter how mean a man is and no matter bow well the people know It, if when be runs for office the facts of his past career are printed to show the people what they must expect, the editor who prints these facts is abused and i the rascal poses as a martyr. When the man turns out wrong as the editor said be would, it the editor says bis prophe cies have come true the people ac cuse him of persecuting the man and 'klcklDg him when he is down." let if the papers say nothing about bad men who arc trying to rob tbe people they say be Is bought off, and that he has taken hush money. Any time you think your life is stagnating and you need a little mental, moral aid physical exercise, Just get into the newspapei business and let people throw thlngs.at you. Remember tbe black boy who used to stick his bead through a hole In a calico Abort for people to throw at, during the fair well that fellow Is the only man on earth who knows bow an editor feels at the end of a day's work. He makes bis money letting people throw things at him. This Is a great business. Next to falling down stairs covered with barbed wire Into a tub of boiling water to be rescued by a man with tbe smallpox, the liveliest scries of calamities In the world may be found in the newspaper business. Blllallen White. An Accident Prevented.. Last night, as the freight went west, it broke a rail just northwest of the opera house. Major E. W. Warner was sitting on the hotel steps and heard tbe "chug, chug" as the freight passed He went down to the place and found about three feet of one of the rails b-oken out and split In such a way that the passenger, which was almost due, would be sure1 to run off. Major Warner hurried back to the hotel and 'phoned to the depot. Sec tion Boss Chune came up and looked at the rail, and ran to the depot and returned with a red flag. In the mean time Major Warner, sent a traveling man, R. B. Musser, down with a red sofa pillow and between them they flagged the train. The train was thus saved from an awful (?) disaster. Kirwln Kansan. The Married flan Preferred. Tbe announcement by tbe presi dent thnt hereafter preference will he given to married men, and especi ally to men of large families, In mak ing appointments in the postofflce department, conforms to a rule that has long been observed In many priv ate Institutions. It is based on the presumption that a married man, on the average, Is "steadier" than a bachelor; that he has the strongest Incentives that a man can have for maintaining his self-respect and llv Ing ; within his means. Of course, there are exceptions to this rule, as there are to others, and usually they deppd on the -'other half" of the family. , But an observation that has worked well In private establishments ought to be useful in government de partments, and every step taken.ln llrectlon of genulue business methods in public life Is encouraging: Ex. . flothera Meetlng.
