TO OUR PATRONS
On account of the conditions that confront us at this
time, over which we have no control, brought about by
the present War conditions, .and in view of the high prices
now prevailing, also the shortage in many lines of Mer
chandise, the failure of crops in the past few years; all of
the above conditions combined, confront us for solution in
the interest of all parties concerned.
In order to protect ourselves, and our creditors, and
at the same time serve YOU Our Patrons to the very
best advantage, we, as merchants, arecompelled to place
our crecHts on terms of a shorter basis.
This is a subject that has been a problem to us for
sometime, and while it is not our intention to discontinue
. our credit plan entirely, we feel that in this way we may
equalize the burden. ' -
It is after mature deliberation that we take thisiction
and hope that we may have your co-operation. If you
do not understand the matter clearly we will be glad to
give you additional information,
, The terms will be CASH with a credit privilege of
THIRTY DAYS. Thus accounts for each month
must be settled on or before the tenth of the month follow
iug the purchase. '
These terms will go in effect the first day of October
1918.
We cordially ask a continuance of your patronage, and
earnestly trust that this modification may work for our
mutualgood.
Yours to Serve,

Word from Chas. Bohling
who was recently wounded in
action, says that he is now able
to be about on crutches and
will soon be back in action.
Meade people arc glad to know
he is recovering.
Elsewhere in this issue ap
pears the public sale of the I.
I Vanlloessen stock and ma
chinery: Mr. Vanlloesen is
among the early settlers of
Meade county and for a num
ber of years has been engaged
in farming and stock raising on
his farm, five miles east of
Meade. His son-in-law, O. O.
Clay, has leased the farm and
will engage in the same line of
work, farming and stock rais
ing. The News is pleased to
note that Mr. and Mrs. Vanlloe
sen have decided to take the
rest from work, which they
both have earned in their long
stay on their farm, and es
pecially glad that they have
chosen Meade as their future
home. The date of the sale is
September 26, and since Mr.
Vanlloesen has some very fine
stock, any one interested will
do well to keep the date in
mind.
At a call meeting of the
Arena Club, held Monday even
ing at the home of Mrs. Roy
Twist, Mrs. C. C. Wilson re
signed her office as president of
the Club for the coming year

ed to fill the vacancy. The
first regular meeting will be
held October 7th, at the home
of Mrs. Roy Twist.
The following message from
Senator Thompson, who has
just returned from a six weeks
visit on the fighting fronts,
"ives the information that the
"!3rd nil Kansas regiment as
sisted in the capture of St.
Mihiel, and since the first bovs
who went from Meade county
were in that regiment, Meade
pcoole will be entitled to some
of the credit for the taking of
this important point. The mes
sage follows:
"Kansas people will be glad
to know that the Eighty-ninth
division, formerly at " Camn
Fnnston, and including the. 3i3
All-Kansas reciment, is now en
gaged in the grent battle
around St. Mihiel. I visited
soldiers there in August and
saw the wonderful prepara
tions for this battle."
The Eighty-ninth division
was trained nt Camp Funston
nnd went to France last spring.
(Included in the organization is
the 353 regiment the All-Kansas
regiment. Many Kansans
j are in other units of the divis
ion, but the 353 regiment is
strictly a home-grown organ-
. ration. It is now in the midst
of the fighting.

County Agent, Carl Howard
advises that a shipment of
grasshopper poison is expected
this week. Since the grasshop
pers arc quite numerous in
some sections of the county, a
united effort to exterminate
them would not be a bad idea.
A new pest has been discov
ered in some parts of the coun
ty, and is known as a brown
weevil. The method of proce
dure of this varmint is to eat
the germ of the wheat seed,
thereby completely destroying
if. While . quite small, this
brown weevil is capable of do
ing unlimited damage if. his
reign should extend over a very
extensive scope of country, and
already an effort is being made
to discover a means of ridding
the infected regions of him.
Listen To What the Fuel
Administrator Says
The coal administration is constantly urging
the early purchase of fuel.
. We also urge not only the early purchase of
fuel, but also that of your heating stove or
range. The supply is limited.
We have on hand just TEN Round Oak '
, Heaters and TWO Round Oak Ranges.
When this supply is exhausted it is very
doubtful if we can get any more this year.
Even if you do not need your stove or range
until late in the season, by paying a few dol
lars down, we will set it aside for you.
The tendency of prices is decidedly upward,
which means that the purchase of a stove or
range at this time represents a material
money saving, conservatton of all fuels, and
the safeguarding of the comfort of the family '
W. F. CASTEEN & CO.
P, S. Remember, your old stove will consume
nearly double the fuel of a new Round Oak.
THRIFT-
The Way To Win
Life without a purpose is little better
than mere existence.
The way to win is to make a definite
plan, and having made it, work for it,
live for it, SAVE FOR IT
Those who are wasteful and extrava
' gant must always struggle to make
ends meet
Those who are prudent and thrifty
need never struggle

I!y K. S. Sullivan
The 13th fell on Friday, tbe
Hun'a unlucky day, and General
John J Pershing's anniversary.
Great Pershing rose upearly up
on that Friday morn, and says.
'I'm going- to celebrate the day
that I was born, Of years full
eight and fifty havep&ssed along
their way since first I opened up
my eyes upon tbe light of day.
My life has been a busy one, and
ere the day is done I'm going to
see that business picks up for
tbe Hun." He signalled to his
bugler who sounded an advance
that was echoed through the val
leys and from tbe hills cf France.
And lo, a million stalwarts an
swered to the call, and o'er tbe
German army there bung an aw
ful pall. A pall of death and ter
ror that filled tbem all with fright,
and doused their lamoot courage,
and put tbem all to flight. And
when tbe day was, ended ten
thousand of their host bad been
turned into prison camps, ten
thousand more to ghosts. All
hail the name of Persbing! All
hail to bis birthday I All bell is
filled with bocbe wbo fell on his
anniversary. j

this city for the past few days,
but at this time is somewhat
improved.
Mrs. F. G. Ilolderman has re
ceived her fall stock of millin
ery and has same on display.
Later shipments are arriving

nounce that Miss Verla Fox, a
Meade county girl, who recent--Iy

College for a course in short
hand and typewriting, has fin
ished her course and has also
taken a Civil Service examina

a Government position was
awaiting her in Washington,
D. C. She will leave the last of
the week for that place.
