Tuesday Oct. 9, Hunnewell, Wednesday, Oct. 10. all at 8 p. m.
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.

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

they were nut in the rains last week.

A Mutual Burial Association.
A representative of A. F. 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.
