Because he wants the government to deal with him on the same basis that it deals with other men. Because ho wauls more than 4.7 rents a bushel for wheat and seven rents a pound for rotten. Because lie kirks against paying 7A per Cent, of the taxes whun hr owns 25 per rent of the properly and half of that mortgaged. Ileeause he protests against a condition wliii h condemns the real wealth produrer loa life of toil, while tlie ipnoulaler lives in luxurious esse.

Because he refuses tn be robbed and I lien vole for the robber, tteacause he lias made up his mind to ipiil being a fool. Oh, yes, the farmer Is u crank! He was all, he was every tiling, as long us he done Just what the |m. 11 tlrlixus told him tn do lint whun he derided Ip heroine something of a politician himself it was "Just too awfully awful!" Because he wanted to .to his own thinking and acting he is tlie crankiest kind of a crank, lb' ought to go on and support the bosses infill ortlces ss of old; allow them to steal him |ioor and then go to the poor house, wouldn't he a crank then.—Boise Dein er rat.

The first case on the docket in Judge Phillips' court was a cane of burg lary.

Sutton and Hill f#owe, of Wil low creek, who were in Kmmett about il»* um*- mM of ibis petty thieving was committed. Accordingly Park Wardwell, whow barn was looted, had I _ _ ises of the HilNpiciotied parties and found I a search warrant isatied and a aber iffa party went out and searched the prem the misai ng arfltdea. waa being made Keel and Sutton skip ped out and the officer* were unable to find them.

As yet he lias been unable lo give bonds and is still in the custody of Constable Stuart. He will have another hearing tomorrow before Judge Fulton on a charge of having looted the Gill school house.
