There is entirely too many scandal gossippers among the people of this city. We find it among the married women in particular, while some of the men are little better. Even if you do hear some scandal news, what good does it do to keep ped dling it to all your neighbors? If it continues we will propose the organ ization of a "Women's scandal gos sip club". We already have a plan in mind which we think would be of great benefit in several ways. We don't like -to start anything of the kind, but in order to benefit the community we feel that we will al most be compelled to act. Should we decide to make this move we de sire the earnest support of every gossipper in Meade, scandal or otherwise. We shall watch for fur ther developments. Night Marshal Leach had quite a novel experience last Sunday night about midnight. He was on his beat when he discovered two men bombarding the front-end of a house on Main street with rocks as he sup posed, and he immediately called on them to halt but they fled with the night marshal in hot pursuit. The fugitives succeeded in eluding the marshal and escaped in the darkness. Mr. Leach returned to the scene of the bombardment and and upon closer investigation dis covered that the projectiles used were of albuminous substance and had been kept in stock a long time. In odor they very much resembled those pestiferous missies used by the Chinese soldiers when wanting to drive off an enemy. NoW, we don't like such a heathenish practice in the heart of our city, - and espec ially on Sunday night, as it does not have a tendency to exhilerate the immediate surroundings. We did not think there was anyone in town who was mean enough to engage in uch an odoriferous pastime. Notice. There will be a meeting of the Executive Committee of the Meade County Live Stock Association, Sat urday, May 26. All members are requested to be paesent. R. E. Steele, Sec'y. The Can Clab.

F. Gorman, of Meade, made a business call in Beaver last week. Beaver Herald.

Mr. Robert expresses great confidence in the outlook for stockmen. He expects normal con dition to prevail despite the disturb ing elements of the presidential year.
