While ill Kansas City last week Dr. M. Collin bought 65 head of high grade Durham heifers, which he had shipped to this point. They came over t'.ie San ta l'e Saturday morning in good con dition. The street entertainment here on Sat urday was a happy surp. iy to everybody, it was so much better than expected, it proved to be a little karnival. Mrs. J. D. Russell and daughter, Miss Minnie, of Winfield, viewed the parade here Saturday. The judges at the colt show were Link Burner, J. D. Krell and Win. Aubrey of Wellington. Charley Davis w ho has been employed in Wright's barber shop for some months past, quit Oxford and left the first of this week for Wellington, to take a posi tison in a shop there. The premium offered for the best horse colt was awarded to Jesse Chenverant, and David Miller carried away the prize for the best mule colt. The woman caught at the crossing south of Winfield on the Santa Fe, that we mentioned in last week's items proved to be a lady well known to many in this vicinity. She was known here as the Widow Waites, and for a numbej of years resided on a farm just across the river some two or three miles south of the city. She married a man by the name of Miller some two or three years ago and moved to Winfield, and resided there at this time. She died of her injuries in the evening of the same day the accident occurred. There have been some of the county candidates in our midst since our last report. They seem to be a modest, quiet lot of fellows, and "beat the brush" gently while here. This metVod of campaigning is all right.

The tendency of Populists to fight other Populists who do not agree with them exactly as to matters of party policy has always been one of the weak est points in our organization. No mat ter how much better our officials may be doing than the Republicans did; if they make some mistakes and are not wholly perfect, there are some Populists who begin straightway to pick up rorks and stone their party friends. We lack that unity of spirit which is the bond of perfectnesss. Some would rather have their own way than to see the'r party succeed. Until we can subordinate the minor points about which we differ, and unite to make a vigorous fight for the principles on which we are agreed, we shall be aln est as impotent to help the world forward as a religious organ ization divided into 176 denominations, each of w hich is profoundly jealous of all all the rest. The Populist and Democratic states men who accept invitations to speak at old soldiers' reunions, have a very diffi cult task to perform. If thev speak their convictions at all as Republicans are expected to do on current questions, they are hooted down. If they avoid a discussion of the issues they are accused ot dodging." It occurs to us that rop- ulist speakers would better stay away. The Populist and Democratic old soldiers seldom attend these reunions because it is made so unpleasant for them and the Populist speakers are not wanted. Tiev are merely invited to give color to the claim that they are non-partisan. oazette.
