BR VAN, of Nebraska. For Vice-President, ADLAI E. STEVENSON, of Illinois. DEMOCRATIC STATE TICKET For Associate Justice, DAVID MARTIN, of Atchison county. For Governor, JOHN V. BRIEDENTIIAL, of Shawnee county. For Lieutenant Governor, A. M. HARVEY, of Shawnee county. For Secretary of State, ABE FRAKES, . of Trego county. For State Auditor, , E. J. WESTGATE, of Finney county. For State Treasurer, CONWAY MARSHALL, of Anderson county. For Superintendent of Insurance, WEBB McNALL, of Smith county. For Attorney General, HUGH P. FARRELLY, of Neosha county. For Supt. of Public Instruction, LEVI HUMBARGER, of Dickinson county. CONGRESSIONAL TICKET. For Congressman-at-Large, J. D. BOTKIN, of Cowley county. For Congressman 7th District,. CLAUDE DUVAL, of Reno county. Webb McNall will again give the 'insurance companies a "hot time." He is the proper man for the place. The state ticket nominated at Fort Scott is a good one and will be triumphantly elected next Novem ber. The fact of the matter is that the Republican party is leaving more men than there are men leaving the that party. We notice that Ex-Congressman Simpson got among some unruly negroes at Ft. Scott the other day and the ex-sockless statesman had a rough and tumble fight. The Republican brethren have al ways said that Mr. Breidenthal was a first-class bank commissioner Will they now admit that . he will make a good governor? Mr. Breidenthal is the only Pop ulist that the Republicans could not get out of office and we don't think they will be able to keep him out of an office next November. The Chinese authorities insist that the foreign ministers are all alive and well, but they don't seem to be able to communicate with their respective governments. Jerry Simpson failed to get an en dorsement from the state conven tion for U, S. Senotor. It takes some antidated politicians a long time to find out just what people do think of them. The state convention held at Fort Scott was one of the most harmon ious fusion conventions ever held in Kansas. All parties were fully sat isfied with the nominations and went home feeling that the ticket would be triumphantly elected next Novem ber. Webster Davis, David Over- meyer, Congressman DeArmond of Missouri and other prominent Demo crats made addresses, all of which were received with great applause The following is from the Mail and Breeze in regaru to the ticket nominated at Fort Scott: "We will frankly say" that in our opinion . the ticket made up by the cohorts is as strong as they could 1 have made it. Briedenthal has some bitter enemies in the ranks of his own party, who tried to make a fight on him in the convention and may fight him at the polls, but in spite of the fact we are of the opin ion that Breidenthal is the strong est candidate they could have nom inated. The rest of the ticket will get the party vote, whatever that may be. So far as we happen to know them they are reasonably com- . petent and popular . gentlemen. There will be no room for mud slinging on either side in the cam The Denver Stockman says: "It is beginning to dawn on the chief executive of the state of Kansas that the live-stock sanitary board of that state is an incompetent, unnecessary body. He proposes to ask the next legislature to abolish it. This will be a great relief to the stockmen who have been held up for inspec tion fees after the stock had been passed by a competent Government inspector. The Government has thorough men in charge of its work in the South, and no damage has re sulted from any that have come North after passing them. To make assurance doubly sure is all right enough, but for that satisfaction an other method than the one practiced by the Kansas board can be adopt ed with success and satisfaction to the stockmen of Kansas. A com petent veterinarian, appointed by the state and put on a salary, will do the business, snd shippers will not be subjected to the heavy ex penses the present plan calls for. Other states that are levying this unjust toll could adopt the same idea." Senator Wellington, who some time ago declared that he would not support McKinley for re-election, is still throwing nuts to the adminis tration which it cannot or will not crack. ' The Senator said, while in Washington, a day or two ago: If the situation in the Philippines is as favorable as the administration would have us believe, there is no reason why twelve or fifteen thous and men could not be sent from there to service in China. I think that would be America's fair quota of the international force for the re lief of Pekin, and beyond the pro tection of American life and prop erty, this country has no business to interfere with the affairs of the Chinese empire. American troops should never form a part of an army for the conquest of China. The European powers have sowed the wind and are now reaping the whirl wind. They have been looking for trouble in China for a long time and now they have it. The fire they have kindled is a hot one, and this government should look well to it that American troops are not used as a catspaw for the pulling out of European chestnuts." Ex.

Those who contemplate sowing alfalfa this fall should lose no time in getting the soil ready. Plow well; harrow each day's plowing before the sun goes down; harrow soon af ter every rain; roll and harrow at some time before sowing. Later than the last of August it is unsafe to sow alfalfa. Under favorable circumstances early September sow ing may get sufficient- strength to live through the winter, but it is un wise to take the risk. If the land is very poor defer sowing it to al falfa for a season or two, and ma nure and cultivate the land well with some crop that will grow on it. Strong lime-stone land is best for alfalfa, but sandy land impregnaten with hard water is good. Sow 20, 30 or 40 pounds of seed on each acre. Seed may be sown broadcast or with drill. Much of the difficulty in getting a stand of alfalfa is on account of the weeds except in localties where grasshoppers are numerous. Fall seeding on land prepared as above suggested eliminates the weed prob lem in most cases. If the alfalfa gets through until next spring with a good stand it will fight its own battles with the weeds from that time forward. . The first advantage of August over spring sowing is the start the alfalfa gets of the weeds, and the second is the saving of a season in the use of the land. Spring sowing makes little or no hay the first season.' , Oup Correspondents. W FOWLER NEWS. The severe wind last Saturday evening- was followed by a nice rain in which about 1 inches of water fell. It was a much need ed rain but ought to have come two weeks earlier. Geo. Fowler and Meredith Krisle finished . haying on the Jas. McGee place last Friday. Mr. John Hotz has been put ting up a tank and doing repair work on a house for Fred Ellis the past few days. Mr. Lapel was doing business in the city Friday. "The less you say the more people will remember." The prospect of having a help er in Uncle Sam's department is getting better every day. Anson Ranpolph was compell ed to quit the threshing machine for a few days on account of rheumatism. Pell Henderson made a few days yisit with the old folks last week. Pell has been following the operator trade for several years but has quit and will work for a carriage company in St. Louis. Prof. Lough seems to be very quiet since he killed that two headed snake. W. A. Burford hauled out sev eral loads of lumber Mhursday to build bin room for his wheat. The golden grain is rolling in from all sides now there being three machines in the vicinity of Fowler. Mrs. Carpenter returned to her home in Pueblo, Colo., last week. Tom Hotz has been working on a well for Wm. Siebenthaler the past week. Fred Ellis and wife were pleas ant callers at M. M. Frazier's last Sunday. School meeting was held in due time and all things went off pleasant but was adjourned rath er sudden. A lady teacher and an 8 months school was voted for. We understand that neither the Randolph nor Porterfield dis tricts will have any school the coming year. The storm Saturday evening caused several of our people to sojourn in the city till next morn ing before returning home. Fred Nett is making arrange ments to join onto the telegraph line which has lately been erect ed in the city. He contemplates using the barb wire fence for wire. If - this works there are several more talking of joining the swift news telegraph co. "You can't grow roses from onion seed; don't keep bad com pany." The past few days has been so calm that those who depended on windmills for pumping stock water were quite uneasy and wished the wind would blow a little more. Carl Ellis got his ankle badly jammed Monday by a horse fall ing on it. He was roping a calf and the horses feet slipped from under him. We understand that a certain party had the audacity io say that all the people of Meade coun ty (then he modified it to three- fourths) got their start in cattle by stealing them. We would rather think this is throwing a slur on the people of Meade county- . Crackerjack. ODEE ITEMS. The rain of last Saturday night brought hope to a good many that they will raise enough feed for their stock which they had almost given up. Gruemkens and Borgers were visiting at Henry Eckhoff 's Sun day. Several parties went fishing last week and returned with a a batch of carp and also a good many catfish. A peddler passed through last week peddling dry goods and notions. Martin Buck brought out a new corn harvester last Wednes day night which he purchased of R. R. Wells & Co. On the way home from town last Wednesday night, while Mr. Buck was taking home his ma chine, Mrs. Buck and her son, Ed. were driving the wagon and their team got' frightened and ran ' away throwing them both out of the wagon, Mrs.- Buck fall ing on her face and was badly bruised up. The boy got away unhurt. Mr. Gruemken found the horses a mile east of his place the next morning still hitched to the front wheels of the wagon.

John Borchers has been work ing at Kragh's for several days helping Ed build some fence. Dutch. FOWLER GUMDROPS. Hello, Rubberneck, you here? Who's sweet (?) papa. Fowler people will go courting occasionally. Who said anything about the weather. It rained Saturday evening, so Mrs. Sims says, because Mrs. Dyer went visiting. Its the proper thing to go visit ing and stay all night these days. Mrs. Laura Sims and children, of Dodge City, are visiting with Mr. and Mrs. John Sims. Say, Rubberneck, we have so often wondered if your neck would tie if broken? Mrs. Turner has joined the ladies bicycle club and does some fine riding. Henry, if you ever get hit by one of cupid's arrows while blke- ing at the rate of sixty miles an hour, you will catch a hard fall. There is a certain young lady on the lookout for you and when she gets a good chance she may shoot to kill. Mrs. Fowler has a fine baby buggy for sale any one in need of such an article will do well to call on her before looking elsewhere "Where did her dot it?" Now, Rubberneck, as we are no poet and you are so good at off-hand poetry, please write us a verse or so on "Kiss me thru the screen, dear." It's a peculiar kiss, you know, that needs sift ing. Fowler housewives are putting up plum jell and butter and growling the meantime about sugar being so high, while the lords of creati on are glad plum fruit is scarce this year. Miss Lizzie Krisle met with what might have been quite a serious accident one day last week. She was coming into town after groceries when along came a whirlwind and blew her off her horse, how is it, Miss Lizzie? We overheard a compliment passed upon the Fowler ladies recently. It's an old chestnut, but to the point. "No. Percy, Fowler could not support a daily paper, fur the wimen folks tell the news before the paper could come out. Gtjmdrop. EAST SIDE ITEMS. R. A.

It is officially announced through the pas senger department of the Rock Island road, that its new branch line running from Chick asha westward to Granite, is completed and ready for business. This new line is 88 miles long and is built through the heart of the Washita valley. Thus located, the line throughout nearly its entire length, lies with in the Kiowa, Commanche and Apache reser vation. Already several towns are located on this new branch, the chief ones being Anadarko, Mountain View, Kiowa and Gran ite, which is at present the terminus of the road and is situated just across the line in Greer county, Oklahoma. Much interest is being manifested, especial ly in the west over the Kiowa, Commanche and Apache reservation being opened up to settlement. Much has been written about this new land and the papers generally both east and west, have contained many write-ups concerning the resources and its value both as an agricultural and mining district. Prob ably nowhere in the Indian Territories is there such a yaluable tract of land as is this Kiowa, Commanche and Apache reservation, and it is the last of the large tracts of land to be opened up to settlement. It contains up wards of two millions of acres, which will be thrown open to the public as soon as the President issues his proclamation to that effect. A word about this new land might be inter esting. At least 90 per cent of the land is rich agricultural land, which will make as fine farms as can be found anywhere in the west, The Wichita mountains are included within the limits of the reservation. Gold, silver and copper have been found in these hills and it is said by experienced miners that great riches are there. Timber and creek bottoms are plentiful. Natural gas has been discovered at Granite, and petroleum oil is a certainty. Coal has been found, and many prospeciors are already on the ground. The town of Granite already gives promise of be ing one of the chief towns in that country, It is growing daily with remarkable rapidity. It is surrounded by mountains, shady groves and running brooks. The Rock Island will run a low rate popular excursion to Granite on Sunday, August 5. At this time exhibi tions will be given of the natural gas burning and visits will be made to the gas wells to witness the wonderful flow, pronounced by experts to be the richest surface flow of natu ral gas ever discovered in America.
