Topeka papers tell oi a monkey be longing to an Italian organ grinder that chews tobacco and spits on the floor Hut that is not remarkable, We can find monkeys who do that without going to Topeka. An exchange says that two McFher son county girls shocked 160 acres of wheat this summer. But after all that'i not so great. One woman shocked a whole train load of people between here and Sterling in one day last week. Govhknou Stanley last week got his great gubernatorial brain to work and brought forth the news that Kansas is all right. Of course its all right. Who ever didn't know that without standing round and wailing for the governor to tell him don't belong to Kansas and she wouldn't own him if he did not long. What it we are cirtea ana burned par boiled and short of fodder? Whom the Lord loveth He chateneth, He surely loves us. He loves us almost as hard without a day of prayer as He docs poor old Missouri with her day of prayer, There isn't a single crop except Ignor ance and mules, of which we have not'a greater supply than any sister State Missouri is an old and rich State. But where she has a corn patch we have a field. Where she has a little strip of wheat running over the brow of a hill we have sections gleaming on into the horizon. Where she has now a dry spring we have an underground river, It may be true she can beat us on mules and some other states can beat us on ignorance, but they are welcome to their products. Kansas is all right and we are glad the governor has found it out. Strange thing continue to happen in this world. There is now a proposition before the people of the city to vote bonds for a railroad and the News op posing it. At least that setms to be what they mean. Their reason therefor is that there is too much mystery stir rounding the proposed deal, and the promotors of the scheme wont tell them enough about where it is coming from and going to, and who is doing the the business and how it is to be done and a few other considerations of like minor importance. These are the Strang est reasons for opposing a railroad bond proposition that ever were borne down the tide of times. What do you want them to tell you such thing for brcthern? Suppose they should tell you a nice story, you wouldn.t know any more about it then than you do now. In fact ft rather seems that this is more than an ordinarily honorable lot of railroad promotors and their proposition should receive more than ordinary considera tion. They seem to promise nothing and we know we'll get it. Most roads promise everything and we know we get nothing. I he people know just as well what they will really get in voting on a railroad bond proposition, to shut their eyes and stop their ears and go it blind as they do after the railroad has got through telling what their purposes arc ana what they are going to do. No we are of the opinion that the News is not opposing this scheme because the dear people are left out in utter darkness regarding their plans, but because they wont give their local news man some thing to make copy out of. And it is a shame. Can't blame them much in such dry, burning, piping times of peace mid no news. The Lyceum Stock Co. willl show in this city at Shaw Theatre the week com mencing Monday August 12th. To the Old Settlers. Who meet today this column is re spectfully dedicated. Come to rub up our memory, and get it in good working order we have decided that we are some thing of an bid settler too. Not in this county, but in the counties west of here we have some reminiscences of the sort you tell about. We remember seasons when nearly all the settlers went to visit their wives folks, and most of them forgot to return. We remember when about the only meat ration was jerked jack rabbit, with an occassional antelope or buffalo steak. When most of the wearing apparel came from the kind hearted people of the East SSISISI When the festive flea was king of the night, and while some people com plained of his appetite, most of them grieved not so much over what he ate up as what he ''tromped" down. wnen it was said the coyotes were so poor they had to lean up against a sand bank to howl. When the "Short Talker," the senior member of this firm, and a one eared devil used to set at the case and stick type and listen to Col. Inman swear The Short Talker's mouth dried and cracked till it opened the wrong way and has been opening wrong ever since. then in came the spangled steer to take the place of the settler who had gone hence, and it required both hind quarters of a our year old to make a breakfast for one, And it was a good horse whose head and tail would stick out from under a forty pound saddle. The daily News one day last week printed a defense of the water company ni the matter of the quality of the city water, and the'tipshot of their claim is that it is good for us. Now the man thutthinks this water is good for his soul ought to be compelled to drink not less than two or three gallons per day till he learned better. The News says the gas and oil kills fever microbes. Shouldn't wonder a bit. It is rapidly becoming the public opinion that it would kill the Texas itch, (coal oil al ways has been the surest remedy,) it would destroy a whole henhouse full of lice at one application: it would sdoi! the digestion of a tape worm in two rnin- atcs it would be a vcty good disin fectant for a slaughter house or a hog Pi pen, but as a bevernce for these heated times It Is not a ciylng success, Yes we are of the opinion that it kills microbes, But carbolic acid or formaldihydo if taken in as targe quantities as we have to use of this water would probably an swer the same purpose, almost as well and be plcasanter to take, We are of the opinion there is politics In it That is it smells bad enough to have politics in it. and we believe Its there. You see Ora Morse was fernlnst this Martin dry crowd that was to give us a dry city Now his outfit are tiylngto embarrass the administration by driving everybody to beer when there is no beer to be had, all on account of the election of Martin. They say they are digging a new well where this vile stuff cannot break through. But if our theory is correct they wont get it done till the worst of the beer season Is over. Watch and see. The forii-R-rnuliiff farmer nf Hi iveM tire told li.y a Chicago hoard f A Word to lorn ' '' " d "I ''ill or luiw to Keep the Grower... pHn. of their prml. net from fulling lirlow 40 cents u biich- The plan Is simple. Whether It Is feasible Is another question, says the Tribune of that city. H Is bused on the assumption that the Uileugo board of trade llxts the world's price for corn. There are many farmers who have believed this 11 ml because of their belief have denounced that board as an odious device to keep down the prices of their products and thus do fruud them, of a portion of the fruits of their toll. There are other people who do not have such faith In the pow ers of the board. They are of the opin ion that the u mount of corn on hand and the demand for that grain by dis tillers, gliicotre manufacturers and oth' cr consumers have most to do with de termining Its price. This friend of the fanners urires them to become bulls on the board, lie would have them buy corn futures to the amount of ubottt 5,000,000 bushels and carry this load from month to month. Ut assures the farmers thnt it will not cost them a cent, utul that the bears, who will not dare to sell more than 20,000,000 bushels at the outside, will be only too happy to pay 40 cents a bushel to get their contracts buck. Thus the price of corn never will fall below 40 cents, no matter how exces sive muy be the supply or how restrict ed' the demand. All one has to do to be huppy Is to plant corn und buy futures. An alluring prospect Is held out to the corn grower, who is assured that he can speculate with perfect safety. He will protect his peuce of mind by keep ing out of "sure things" on a board of trade or a race track. The man who Is raising corn seems at this time to be pretty well off without any artificial nld. The demand for his product ap pears to be gnlnlngon the supply. The department of agriculture thinks this will continue to be the case and that the men who grow com are to be the ugriculturul millionaires of the future. That being the situation His unneces sary for them to go cm the board of trade and buy futures. The future is already assured to them If they will turn a deaf ear to the advice ofsiiec- uiiitors ami simply eultivtile corn. The world Is full of people who bn- nionn their hard luck and lire, con-itiif-ii..iii-...t k. s t u 11 1 1 y pitying t h e m h 0 1 v c s because fate is ili-nvor, ainiinst them, berutmu they cannot succeed as other people do. The real cause of 1 he r failure is men 01 heart. They do not throw their whole souls Into their work. They only touch their employment with the tips of their fingers. They do not lllng' their whole life Into their vocations. They are htilf-heurted, and lack en ergy, push, perseverance; they lime no ambit ion-fires to melt the ob stacles lit their pathways, to weld to gether, into 0110 , continuous chain, the links of their efforts, says a writer In Success. Futile endeavor, hnlf-lienrlcd effort, never accom plished anything. Jt' takes the tiro of determination, energy, push, and good judgment to accomplish that which counts, or life; will be a failure. It is the enthusiastic man, with tiro in his blood and ginger In his brain, who makes things move, mid pushes to the front. We sec the htilf-hcarlcd Hunting aimlessly with every current. They have lost their grip, and tire pushed aside ny mo more vigorous and determined; they lost heart and case struggling, and then they bo- mm' drifters, and arc tossed about on the sea cf life.

The building which will shelter it Is designed to serve many othr Intellectual and social uses, It wllfcoiituln a kitchen, reception-rooms tnl' a hull Unit may be utilized for lec tures, entertainments and religious RiMrrlngH. This action Is hulled by the Now York Independent as Indicat ing lb 1' growth of u belief thut wealth which has been aocuinulutcd In the country should be used for the beneflt of the country, Our grandfather felt this more strongly, perhups, than our fathers did, or than we have, llioh fanners und poor farmers, too bore 111 n u f ul parts In establishing' the older colleges. When they could not give money they guve labor, realizing, doubtless, that tbe first students at these colleges would be the lads from the farms, The farmer of that earlier day never dreamed that, because he was "12 miles from a lemon," he must forego intellectual stimulus and social recreation. Hut the movement toward the cities und toward the west affected seriously many little neighborhoods which had been centers of wholesome and vigorous life, rending the read justment to changed condition In the east, and the success of the first pitched buttle with nature In the west, it seemed that the farmer must needs be a" man of one Idea lu "hold on." The general demand for rural free de livery showed that the evil days ure over for both sections. The farmer knows where he stands, He bus leisure to renew relations with the world, and he means to do so. The will of the I'eiinsylvanlan Riiggesls the spirit In which to meet the reasonable demands of the people In the "outlying regions." If the funiier cannot go to the llbrury, tuke the library to 111 in. The grout results come when pa tients are merely subjected to u slm- , pic and rational Climate anil ton- ' regime whose chil.f elements are pure air, sunlight and abundant nu trltlou under conditions that allow these, factors to exert their Influence to the greatest possible extent. With the new nietliods it Is no longer neccS' sary for the patient to seek a climate of the kind 'that has been supposed to possess some spcclllc property ngulnst the disease, says the !evlev of te views. The benefits from mild ell mutes are now, seen to be due chiefly to the effects of the outdoor life that the climate encourages, Hut whntever the advantages of such a. climate they ure liable to be offset by the depress lug influences that follow separation from home and friends, with conse quent melancholy, The expense for the great majority of piillenls ulso burs the way of the change. There fore the most desirable treatment on the whole is that which keeps the pa tients near home. This Is the conclit' sion readied by the author of one of the most Important works on pul montiry tuberculosis, Dr. H. A. Knopf, of New York, who expresses his thor ough disbelief in the spcclllc curative quality of any climate, and therefore would place a sanllarluni where it would do the greatest, good to the greatest number. Ilcholds that il is es sential to the majority of tuberculous patients to be treated and cured In the same, or neurly the same, climate where they will have to live and Work jfler their restoration to hcnllli. The first steps toward the forma tion of the Olympian (ianicH assocln llon, which is to conduct the big ath letic world's fair in Chicago in 1!(4, have been taken.
