He has a fine prospect for a wheat crop and seems contented with Meade county. We are pleased to welcome Mr. Ball and family to bur county and hope that they will remain permanently. We regret such disturbances as we had in our city Monday night, as we don't think it is a good advertise ment of the peace and quiet of our town. While men cannot agree .on all matters it is not proper to settle disputes in this manner. We sin cerely hope these occurrences will not be repeated. We can have a quiet, peaceable city and why not have it? It is no use to stir up strife and have to resort to bruta means to settle such differences, and we do not care to add fuel to the flames. We repeat it, we hope it will occur no more. Dr. J. L. Dickerson and wife were transacting business in Meade Tues day. The Catholic workers society will meet at the home of Mrs. F.

V. which took the place of the 20th Kansas. We shall publish an account of this reg iment next week taken from the Manila Freedom, published in the City of Manila... Last Friday night an advance man put in his appearance in town and billed a show for Saturday night, The bills indicated that the "pro fessor" was a world-renowned ven triloquist and "hypnotist." Satur day evening a professorly looking fellow "showed up" and proved to be the "hypnotist". A small crowd assembled at the hall to see the per formance and witness the "wonder ful freak". The show commenced about 9 o'clock with the "Prof." on the stage. He made a short state ment about his line of work and stated that he would "hypnotize" anyone who would come forward. Several of the boys went up for trial and the "Prof." concluded that they were not good subjects. He went through some hand motions with some of the small boys, then he and his 'partner "hypnotized each other and made a speech or two, which any 10-year-old boy could have discounted. The partner blacked up and came out and got off a song or two, and cracked several jokes, all of which wore whiskers a yard long. The audience began to leave and pretty soon the "Prof." said good-night and stated that he would try again Monday night. All the boys were dissatisfied and wanted their money back, so the night marshal put the "Prof. and his assistant in the holdover and went to see Co. AttyJ Bodle, who concluded that he would not be warranted, in holding them. Sun day morning they were turned loose and both took a tie pass east, having paid all their bills except hall rent. Both seemed glad to get away. The city authorities had been paid $5 for three nights show. The show was not what it should have been for the money, but when we gel "bit" we never kick. . ii is no use holding anyone unless there is a good case against them and a good probability to "stick 'em." Base Ball Game. The following, is the score of the game played by the Whites and the Blues on Decoration Day, by innings: Blues 0400013. 1 o 9 Whites 01227001 2 is Baptismal Services.

County Commissioners Conrad, Hayden and Innis are in session this week as a Board of Equalization, hearing grievances of erroneous as sessments etc. and making every thing satisfactory. They are equal izing the assessmentf on all the land which is by no means a small job. But we presume they are equal to the occasion as they haye been in other matters. The Meade Orchestra. Prof. Bodle contemplates the re organization of the Meade Orchestra. We are glad Mr. Bodle has taken hold of the matter and can assure him we "will do all in our power to make the undertaking a success. There is talent here that properly developed would be a credit to our city. There is nothing that so ma terially aids a town as a good band or orchestra. We shall have more on the subject as the matter de velops. Fourth of July Celebration. At a 4th of July meeting last night it was decided to celebrate at Meade.

I., who are in the Philippine Islands. The Sunday School convention was held at Meade .Friday, Saturday and Sunday of last week at the M. E. church. We are sorry to report that it was not as well attended as it should have been. We are inclined to attribute the small attendance to the fact that this is the busiest time of the year among the country people rather than the lack of interest in the work. We hope the attendance will be larger next year. Capt. H. Mott, of Cline, O. T., delivered one of his famous lectures on Libby Prison, at the courthouse Wednesday evening which was well attended. R. M. Painter was over from Meade Monday on legal business. Ashland Clipper. In the District court last week the case of State of Kansas vs. Alec Mc Coid was taken up.
