THE LIBERAL DEMOCRAT
SENATOR. THOMPSON IS ROCK ISLAND RENEWING HOMES EEKERS RATES WORD BEING DONE ON AGAIN IN POLITICS THE A.-P. HIGHWAY Will Ba Candidate for Congreu From Sacond Congressional District of Kansas ' Senator Wm. H. Thompson, who at one time represented Kansas in the United States Senate, has strain en tered politics and will be a candidate for congress from the second con' gressional district of Kansas, com prising the counties of Bourbon, Al len, Linn, Anderson, Franklin, Mia mi, Douglass, Johnson and Wyan dotte. The announcement came as some what of a surprise to the Liberal friends of the former senator, and all are hoping that he is successful in the primaries. Thompson, before becoming sen ator, was district judge of this judi eial district, and during that time formed a wide acquaintance. Then, during his senatorial campaigns h made many new friends and all these will regret that they are not in the second district so they could vote for him for congress. Thompson is a whirlwind cam paigner, and a man of more than or dinary ability, and should he be elec ted the second district will know they have a representative at the United States capital. Col. Ed Little is at present repre sentative from the second, and should Thompson be chosen to suc ceed him, the folks up there will have Bo cause to regret their action. Must Be Purchased In Lots of Five Rale is one Fare Plus $2.00 0. J. Rolo was in the city this week looking after business inter ests, and visiting with relatives and friends. The Rolo family were form erresidents of this city, but are now living at Ottawa. A well balanced dairy ration may mean a good bank balance. In a letter of W. V. Griffith of the firm of Griffith & Baughman, the in formation is given that homeseekers excursion tickets will again be placed on sale the first and third Tuesdays! of each month. The fare will be one fare plus $2 and it will be necessary that five tic kets be purchased before the rate will apply. Tickets will be on sale to practically all points in the southwest and the re turn limit will be 21 days. It is expected that the return to the Homeseekers Excursion rate will cause many new people to come this way in search of homes, and the wonderful crop prospects now prevailing will convince many that this is the place to locate.

Farmers who intend to grow Sudan for Seed should come in as soon as possible and make arrangements so we can have your seed here for planting in plenty of time. We furnish the seed for planting FREE. Sudan Grass is probably the safest and surest crop the Kansas farmer can grow. There are several reasons for this. In the first place because of its re markable root system, it is able to make good yield even in poor soils; furthermore, it seems to be able to better than almost any other crop, stand dry weather and dry winds Consequently, it is. not unusual for Sudan Grass to make good yields of seed when other crops fail. First cutting, seed and fodder; second crop, fodder or pasture. Manglesdorf Seed Co., Atchison, Kansas, or G. P.
