These fom meetings are all that Mr. Duval will hold in Sum ner county and everyone should hear him at some one of these points. Mr. Duval stands for everything in the Populist platform and has stood for it for many years. We wish especially to urge upon all Populists that they hear and becouu better acquainted with him. Whether a candidate be called Democrat or Populist is not so import ant as that he be in every sense a man true to the interests of the people. This Mr. Duval is able, discreet and scholarly. He is a splendid campaigner, making friends and voters wherever he goes. The time for the campaign is so short sad the district so large that no more time can be given here. Allen 0. Myers is one of the very beit speakers in the United States. Witty, eloquent and convincing. The people or Sumner county are fortunate in having thi3 opportunity to hear a man of world wide reputation as a platform orator. Those failing to hear him will regret it Grant Harrington is an excellent speaker. Among the best in the state. The Edison Polyphone secured by the committee, the lat est and best improved talking machine, will be at each of the above meetings and furnish music and patriotic selections.

The Wellington Qua Club Determines to Stop Violations of Game Law. The Wellington Gun club held a meeting at HarveCovsrdale's clothing store last night and decided to offer a reward of $25 for Information leading to the arrest and conviction of any person buying, selling or shipping quail contrary to the Kansas game law. Tin club i,s determined to put a stop to the violation of the law, and the pot hunters and shippers will be closely watched. Tbe country is said to be full of quail, enough to supply every lover of that game with all they can eat, but if the pot hunters, en couraged by the quail shippers, con tinue their depredations, the country will soon be rid of its choicest game. So the pot hunters anl quail shipper., had better look out. The Gun club will sea that every guilty person Is punished to the fullest extent of the law. The Gun club decided last nik'ht on the dates for holdiug their annual tournament. It will be held on the 2Uh and 2oih icst. Joe Fetters, John W. Ilaughey aud Harve Coverdale were appointed a committee to pre pare a program and submit it to the club at a future meetiog. Sioleo Harness Found. Jl.n Demory, while drilling wheat on the Ready farm two miles east ot Wellington Tuesday, found a buggy, a set of double harness and a set of single harness which had evidently been stolen. Tbey were Id a deep draw In the wheat field. The Saturday prior to the Jubilee, ahorse, buggy and set of single har ness were stolen from a farmer named Harlong, and a set of double harness was stolen from one of the Botkln boys. Harlong's horse returned home with a broken halter strap hanging to Its halter, Riving evidence that it had broken loose. The buegy and harness will probably prove to be tats property. The officers think some thief stole tbe horse and buggy and bith set of harness, and that he stopped by the roadside and tied the horsfl. It broke loose snd the thief pulled the bug?v and bampss Into the hldine place. The buggy cushion and harness were mouldy, showing that they were nut in the rains last week. Marriage Licenses. I E.

Burke, Cincinnati, 0., who has recently copy righted a plao for a burial association which has been in successful operation in Cincinnati and the adjacent coun try for some time, was in the city last Saturday, and we understand, made arrangements for the organization of such an association here, of which Mr, Hickman will be in charge, One of toe reasons urged for such associations is that few persons except the wealthy are financially prepared for the grim visitor, death, aod the expenses inci dent thneto, and thaugh life insur ance is carried, the full amount of the policy is oecessary either to provide a home or educate miuor children. As the statistics show that Sumnercoun ty, when not visited by epidemic of smallpox or diphtheria, is one of the healthiest counties in the state, such an organization ought to be successful here and provide Its benefits at small cost to its members. n n n nnj 1 IB V km (0111 ETM ml 1 y '"' (f J! 1:1 1 m 1 0 Luella F.
