to think that he can have a
healthy body without either

is built up just as the corn is,
by the assimilation of the
several chemical elements on
which vitality depends. And
what weeds are to the corn,

Cleanlal" postnffhe, the discontinu

years ago. For several years past Jas.
Donohue has kept, a stock of goods

Wilcox of Oxford, who took the post
office also. Wilcox is closing out his

to a verdici of not guilty, only held
out for manslaughter in the fourth

expected to follow Juror Nichols' dis

to be a successful fruit raiser he must
go to California or Colorado, although
it has often been demonstrated that
successful fruit growing can be done
in Kansas as well as anywhere else.
D W. Haskins, who lives one mile
east and three north of Argooia, in
the sand dunes of Creek township,
has made success at fruit growing for
many years. He has a young orchard
of 15 or 20 acres, in which he raised
this year the finest apples grown in
the state. He has a great variety
of fruit and berries and makes more
money every year than the average

study of fruit growing, and has

SbenS Turner ot Eldorado, was in
Wichita yesterday aod said tbat tie
Jessie Morrison case continues to 1 in
terest the rjeople of Butler county.
Turner is guarded in his expressions
at out tne case, out more from wbat
he does not say tban from what be
does say one is forced to the conclu
sirn tbat be believes tbat Mlns Morri
son will never be proved guilty of the
murder of the wife of Olin Castle.
Speaking of the case Turner said:
"Jessie Morrison has not yet given a
bond, but I bave no doubt of the
ability of her father to secure a good
bond. Judge Morrison told me tbat
be would not be in any hurry, but
that he would submit a good bond.
James flolderman, I have understood,
was expected to slsn it with Judge
Morrison, and liolderman is worth
150,000 to 160,000. I tblok it is true
tbat a majority of the people in Eldo
rado were against Miss Morrison.
That is more particularly the cae
among the women. Soma of the
women there, however, have takeu
Jessiejs side, and where they have
none so they ar for her r a finish. I
can not say that the failure of the
jury to reach an agreement was any
surprise to me. The state', attorneys
made a good ngbt, but tneir side was
injured by sore of tb peopie of
Eldorado who volunteered their ser
vices to aid the county attorney.
People naturally reached the conclu
sion that the great state of Kansas
was abundantly able to prosecute one
little woman, and the action of the
people there in raising money to assist
in the prosecution, or rather the re
port that such a fund bad been raised,
reacted and brought friends to the
defendant. I, of course, am unable
w eajr wiiat me incoming county at
torney will do, but of course the sop
position is that Jessie Morrison will
again be brought to trial. I have
opinions on the case, but it would not
be proper for me to state them fnr
