Departed On July 17 at 3:00 p. m., at his home twenty miles south-east of Meade, the soul of Martin Buck took its flight to the Great Un known. In his death bis wife has lost a faithful companion, bis child ren a loving father, his neigh bors an exemplary neighbor; bis friends a true friend, and Meade county one of her most highly respected citizens. Martin Buck was born in Ben ton county Missouri, June 12, 1858, and from there moved to Lafayette County where on August 28tb, 1882 be was mar ried to Miss Rebecca Eckboff. To tbis union seven children were born, five, boys, and t two girls, six of whom are living. In 1886 Mr Buck came to this county and located on his pres ent farm, southeast of Meade, and where he has continuously resided. He came when the place was little more than a wil derness, was faithful in' doing his share in developing it, and remained to see it munbered among the banner counties of the state. He is survived by bis wife, two daughters, Mrs. Wm. Cordes, and Mrs. Geo. Boebling, both of Uneda, and four sons, Ed, Ben, Ormond, and Albert, and one sister, Mrs. Mary Wuerdeman, of Pittsburg, Kansas. Funeral services were held at the German Lutheran ' churcb, south, of Meade, this Thursday morning and interment made in the Stone School Cemetery.

No agents. You Can't Eat Advice The big businessmen of the state have gotten wise to the fact that the farmer is willing to do his share for his country, but needs co-operation more than ad vice, so tbey are going to make their money take the very same chance as the farmer's money and labor, and invest it in a big seed-wheat pool on a fifth-crop share basis, so as to make it pos sible for the farmer to put out i bigger acreage than he now has seed for. There is no charity about it. It is a plain business icvestment and a big co-operative plan. If the farmer loses the investor loses. If the farmer wins the investor wins, and the boys in the trenches won't have to eat hot air, even if wheat and bread do come high Wheat Will Be High Nxt Year You can't get around it, some thing like thirty million men have been taken from farming and other productive occupa tions and are fighting. Other milliods of men, women, and children have been taken from thi farms and are making mu nitions and other war supplies. Even in Germany, France, and other European countries, where theneed of food is sogreat, farm land is lying idle for want of workers. This can have but one result: high prices. ,The world wheat supply is about two-thirds of the demand. The long-headed, far-t-eeiDg man knows wnat is coming just as sore as fate, and be is going to grab old man Opportunity by tbe front hair, or coat-tails, or any place be can get a hold and hog-tie him. He is going to sow all the wheat' be can lay his hands on. The farmers are going to get good prices for wheat next year. Figures talk. You can't repeal tbe law of supply and demand. ; , I Base Ball Sunday afternoon the Meade base ball team accompanied by a number of "fans" motored to Plains where the Meade team defeated Plains by a score of 18 to 9.

The following, taken from tbe Hritchtnson Gazette,' regarding Otero Beeson, who is recruiting the second regiment band, will be of interest to many of our readers: "Beeson was jubilant over acquiring one of tbe finest band instruments in tbe country while in Colorado. It is a Cer veny Helton Bass. ' It will be played by Don Innis who enlisted here. There is no instrument in any army band in tbe country so fine, Beeson declares."

The Kansas Council of De- fense is going to buy two million bushels of seed wheat to be put outon a fifth share. If you want some of it, inquire of your coun ty committee which is being formed. 1918 Will Be a Bumper Year Kansas records for the past twenty years show there have never been two wheat failures, in succession, and in almost ev ery cases failure has been fol lowed by a bumper crop. This, is due to sound scientific causes. Everything points one way. 1918. will be the borse shoe year. Uncle Sam is on third base somewhere in France. A bard drive1 to tbe'"wneat field will bring him home. Don't let bim die on third.
