Cedar Twp. will vote May 10 on the proposition to issue bonds to bridge the Verdigris river at Altoona. Bonds rtfe very unpopular in Kansas just now, but a bridge at Altoona , is cer tainly "a long felt want." George Dennis, who lives on A. W.

Mr. D. says the prospects for crops in old reliable Pleasant Val ley township are excellent. Considerable interest was manifes ted in the case of W. T.

The mer chant gets better results and so does the printer. This week, Mr. Freeman of Chanute, begins his second year with us, and during the year ho never failed to deliver hia copy but once, but very few times did It come later than Tuesday. Mr. Freeman is well pleased with the results, and ilia busi ness relations has been highly satis factory. It pays him to do that way and push' through, why wouldn't it pay you to do the same way? Mr. Freeman la a man of good business judgement and he is satisfied our cir culation la on the paying list and there are others, the proof of which Is their advertisements. Give us more ads and we will prove to you that they are beneficial, besides improving the paper. We have been asked several time about a man whose ad had ap peared irregularly, "if he is here." The inquisitors stated that they thought the firm had left the place since he didn't advertise. You see this mer chant lost money on those parties, the profits on which sales would have paid the printer for the space six months. Savonsburg News. Right you are Brother Jordon, Mr. Freeman is always on hands with his ads, be sides he reads them after they are in print, and never fails to show his ap preciation of a nicely gotten up ad, but what is still better, when the first of the month rolls round, Mr. Free man pays his bill as though bethought lie had had value received for his money. Of all the great equestrian perform ances of the circus world is none more strange or attractive than the perfec tly trained equestrian lion t ) be seen with the Walter L. Main Enormous R. R. Shows, 3-Ring Circus, 5-Conti-nent. Menagerie, Roman Hippodrome and trained wild beast shows, This remarkable animal which a few years ago roamed, king of an African forest, is now seen at every performance of the Walter L. Main shows, riding a bare-back horse with all the ease.grace and agility of a champion human equestrian. There is no act or part of any act, performed by our champion bare-back biped artists which this in telligent quadruped does not dupli cate, and many things in which he ex cels the gentlemanly artists of the big show. The big show exhibits here on May 12th, and everyone should see the only horse riding lion performer. W. B. Whitaker of Buffalo, has put up a creamery on his own "hook" and is running it himself, using the milk of his own cows (18 in number) and making money. The average creamery with $10,000 capital, paying a superin tendent $100 per month and two or three other useless ollicers almost as much, has long since had its day in many Kansas towns, including Fre donia, Buffalo, Erie and many others within our knowledge. These are now being replaced by creameries on a smaller scale; the owner is superinten dent, secretary, and butter-maker, while his boys milk the cows, slop the hogs and etc. The latter creameries are always successful. The commissioners of both Neosho and Wilson counties have given the Forest Oil Co., the right to lay pipes along the highways and across the same and across the edges of farms; we may expect to see work begin on the pipe line jjfrom the Canble well one mile east of Benedict to this city in a very short time. Chanute people are counting on using gas for lighting and heating purposes this winter. The following resolution was adop ted by the Ladies of the G. A. R. at their department meeting last week: Moved by Elma B. Dal ton, that a vote of thanks be extended to Comrade J. E.Pluninier for his"patient endurance of life's roughest lot" in going witli ont his supper while his wife was serving on the Council of Administra tion. Sue A. Bench, Secretary. Fredonia organized a commercial club last week, with John C. Ilubbell as president; C. II. Pierce, vice presi dent; A. D. Crooks, Secretary, and J. D. Allen, Treasurer. Their object is to look out for the interests of Fredo nia, and encourage capital to locate in thai town . 'Smatter with Chanute organizing a commercial club? A fake "lightning rod dispenser" dropped down on onellottenstein near Humboldt a couple of weeks ago, and sold Mr. II. ten dollars' worth of rods for $100. Well, after all, there is some excuse for a fellow buying lightning rods from agents, as no hardware mer chant in Humboldt carries such good?. They arc so small that the most sen sitive persons take them, they are sd ef fective that the most obstinate casesof constipation, headache and torpid liver yield to them. That is the way De Witt's Little Early Risers are known as the famous little pills. Boschert & Williams. The long talked-of monument to General U. Grant, was dedicated at New York Tuesday. It is said to be second only to the Washington mon ument. With Walter L. Main's Mammoth show will be found the smallest pony in the world, May 12. The I. O. O. F.'s this dist rict, will celebrate at Neodesha next April. All dried and canned fruit go at cost at Farringtons, in Jones block. The Encampment. The Encampment is pver and Cha nute la settling down to business as usual, . One of the things demonstra ted la that Chanute Is strictly in it when it comes to entertaining crowds; Chanute entertained the G. A. R. and its kindred organizations In a manner satisfactory In the highest degree of those present; these organizations makeup the largest gathering that meets In delegate convention in Kan sas, consequently there is no order, or convention that we cannot accomo date and as our railroad facilities are unexcelled, we may feel safe in under takes to entertain any organization that can be induced to come. No town of our size can any where near com netewithusin hotel accomodations and our private dwellings can always be brought In to take care of the over flow. Last week we housed and fed 2,000 people and could easily have taken care of another thousand. Cha nute Is all right. For seed sweet potatoes go to K. C. Cash Store. 1 Contractors Martin and Dobbins have secured the contract for the large new building to be erected at Altoona immediately by the M. W, A. local lodge, and a party by the name of Knott. Mr. Dobbins went up this morning to lay off the plans and start the work. Derrick. For the Gymnastic Union at St. Louis, Mo., May Gth to the 11th, low est first class fare for the round trip. Tickets on sale May 4th and 5th. Good to return May 12th. 5-7. By a vote of 4(50 to 301 the citizens of Chanute have said that the Second ward should not have a new school house. It is unfortunate indeed that this is thus. The old building now be ing used for a school house, needs a new roof and new floor; it woul l not be good business sense to try and patch it up by building to it. Second ward during the past winter sent pupils to the Fourth and Third ward scliools.be sides furnishing a large share of those who went to the basement of the Pres byterian church. It is not fair and equitable t hat each of the ether three wards should have a brick school house, vhile Second ward, standing second in population, should have a little old frame building, and but two teachers for 300 pupils of school age. There should be a respectable school building in cacli of the wards in the city of Chanute. For fresh bulk garden seeds go to K. C. Cash Store. 3-5 tf. Card of Thanks. The Executive Committee wishes to publicly return a card of thanks to the citizens whoso patriotically open ed their homes for the entertainment of the delegates and visitors to the G. A. R. Encampment, and at the same time express our regret that there were some who made arrangements to entertain, that were disappointed on account of the small attendance. No cots were f urnished by the com mittee for any person, nor in any way did the committee furnish free lodg ing for any one. Signed. L. B, Keifeu, R. N. Allen, D. E. McClelland, G. M. Dewey, C. S.

The Committee, and the public generally, expected me also to report the names of all unpaid subscriptions in orderjthat it might be known how much more might be realized thereon, but as we had such unusual good suc cess in the collections all our sub scriptions having been paid except one of $101 have concluded not to publish the name of the delinquent. All persons having contributed, can get their dividend ordered by the Committee, by calling on me at the First National Bank. I desire to especially thank all con tributors for their prompt payment of their several amounts, and espec ially to the members of the Finance Committee for their assistance in rais ing the subscription. All of which is Respectfully Submitted, R. N. Allen. Treasurer G. A. R. Executive Com. A Sure Thing 60000000 istence two years ago, when our Grocery Department was first open ed, that ha's not changed owners during that time. The reason for this is so plain that a child even,can understand it, viz: That Spot Cash Selling knocks out long-winded credit in every encounter. The store that Underbuys for cash can surely Undersell for the same kind of pay. If any person will try the cash buying plan for one month and will give it an absolutely fair trial,we will guarantee that if they love freedom and independence, they will never buy on credit again.
