Farmers' Institute. A Farmers' Institute was held in this city Tuesday and Wednesday of this week, and was well attended con sidering the bad roadsa The Ins titute was opened Tuesday afternoon witli prayer by Rev. G. W. Stafford, after which the addresss of welcome was delivered by Z. T. Postlethwaite. J. P. Cone then read an interesting paper on poultry, which gave some valuable suggestions on this question. His paper was discussed by Charles Foetisch, E. P. Bodle, E. L. Tennis and others. E. R. Stone then read an interesting paper on apples,' which was closely listened to by nil present. Mr. Stone gave some very valuable in formation on the subject of apple cul ture, grafting, etc. Next was "Small fruit culture," a paper by Walter S. Truitt. We were unable to be present to hear this paper, but those present Consider it one of the ablest papers they ever heard on this subject. Prof. S. C. Mason addressed the aud ience at length on "Small Fruit for Farmers' Gardens" and Prof. C. C. Georgeson on "Farming as a Factor in National Prosperity." Messrs. Mason and Georgeson are members of the faculty of the Kansas Agricultural College. The program Wednesday consisted of a talk on kafflr corn by II. Monta gue, a paper entitled "the dairy cow, her feed and care," by Prof. Georgeson and a talk by S.J. Stewart on "Dairy ing in Southern Kansas." The Cap tain's talk was short and to the point. Among other things he said: "No oc cupation that I have any knowledge of requires such constant and unre mitting attention as the dairy busi ness. The man who believes his duty to his country requires him to spend at least one day each week, sittine on goods boxes in his nearest town dis cussing politics had better not allow the dairy question to disturb his per capita thoughts, for the chances are 16 to 1 that he will be a dismal fail ure as a dairyman, but the man who believes success in any business can onlycometo him who is willing to de vote time, thought and labor to his oc cupation may safely engage in dairy ing." This meeting of the farmers and talking over matters pertaining to their calling is certainly a step in the right direction and more meetings of this kind will no doubt be held in the future. A Rare Treat. " TosBUin, he am good to pnt, Cyarve him to da heart." Tuesday evening a general move ment was noticed among the colored population along Fourth street in the direction of Mitchell's restaurant, Each face wore an expression of vague unrest, and each nose sniffed the air, like the war-horse sniffs the battle from afar. The trail ended at the restaurant door, where the cause of the colored man's hegira was explain ed. Inside the place Messrs. I. D. Boschert, Bert McCaslin, Frank Jones, Dr. E. 0. Hostetter, Pink Burris, F. S. Addington and George Fogleman were enjoying the hospitality of T. H. Coffman in the shape of a genuine 'possum supper. The fragrant'aroma of the 'possum, sweet potato, corn-pone rfnd gravy that floated out on the evening air as the front door was occasional ly opened was too much for the olfactories of the "original" Tennesseeans,Texans,Miss issippians and other descendents of African kings gathered outside, and it was only by the influence of the more cool headed leaders that the banquet ters were not mobbed. Card of Thanks. We desire to thank our friends and neighbors for the kind assistance ren dered us during the sickness of our son Bert; also for their expressions of sympathy after his death. Mn. and Mrs. S. A. Wickard. ' Burglary at Benedict. One night last week, burglars ent ered the store of C. A. Sprague at Bene dict and stole a lot of goods.
