Plugging! Plugging!! Plugging!!
"We have been plugging along for over a quarter of a century and will, as the old lady said, "still continuer. Our trade never was better and the only reasons we can give are : FIRST Everybody likes to trade where they can get their money's worth. SECOND : We carry the stock and you do not have to buy from a catalogue, or wait until we send for it. THIRD : If we tell you an article is all right, it is. When we warrant an article, we 6tand strictly by the warrant. If you need a hay press, buy the LIGHTNING, have sold more of them than all other presses represent ed this market. If you need a Disc, Gang or Sulky, buy the HANCOCK. We are the only firm in Butler that has sold any disc gangs, and we can tell you who bought them, and they can tell you how they like them. Nothing on earth can touch the Han cock. Look out for our big field exhibition and be sure and attend it. If you need a monldboard sulky or gang, there is only one. That stands at the head of the list, and John Deere makes it. If you need a wagon buy the Mitchell or Schuttler. Remember the celebrated Anchor and Hoosiei: line of Buggies, Bike wagons, Road and Spring wagons. We also have a complete line of Team Hauxess as well as single and double driving harness. If you are going to can any fruit we have tin and glass cans by the dozen, or can furnish you a wagon load if you want them. Also have everything in the grocery line, from a 1-irr"1 nf ' n1f f A " ""-y ' Everything in Hardware, Tinware, "Wooden ware, Stoneware and Chinaware.

Country editors of experience and a sense of humor cannot fail to recog nize how eminent a type' of their dauntless nnd resourceful class is Mr. J ('. Hound, editor of the Atlan- ta I Mo 1 News, who has just saved churches of his town from disaster ' hv making n talented use of the in strument which had created the men ace 1 if disaster. It seems that on a certain day last week there was n violent hailstorm I at Atlanta which destroyed all the 1 windows of the Baptist, Presbyte rian nml l m versa 1st churches, en- i,IHtincttvrlv to tn(t e,iitQr 0f the local paper, the natural mentor of his community. They wanted to know how to retrieve the losses imposed by the elements. And Editor Bound was equal to the emergency. "Advertise a hail storm social," he said without a mo ment's hesitation. ''Gatherup these hailstones and freeze ice cream and sherbert with them. I'll print your advertisements and broadsides for nothing. Go ahead and you'll get back what you've lost." ' And this was done with eminent success, the "hailstorm social" at Atlanta netting a surplus above the amount needed for repairing the three suffering churches. The moral of this incident is plain the country editor is still the most valuable mem- berofthe society whicn he honors with his presence Republic Still Need Our Mules.

Mrs. Sarah Morrow, wife of John Morrow, was instantly killed and her daughter seriously injured by a south-bound engine of the Kansas City, Pittsburg and Southern rail way at a crossing, two miles north ol Anioret, in the west part of this j county Friday afternoon. The ladies were in a buggy with the side curtains drawn, and it is sup posed were unaware of the approach of the fast moving passenger train, when they drove onto the track of the railroad. The engine struck the buggy be tween the front and hind wheel smashing the vehicle, killing the horse and throwing the two ludies high in the air. Mrs. Morrow was instantly killed, while her daughter received several severe wounds about the face and shoulders.

Funeral services were held from the family residence yesterday afternoon, after which the remains were interred in the city cemetery north of town. The members of the family have the sympathy of the en tire community in the hour of their bereavement. Our County Court is being criticiz ed tor cuTtinjr so manv trees in tne court house yard. Our opinion is they have done just the right thing, and have left as many trees in the yard as there should be, and in a few years those that are kicking now, will be praising the court for having the backbone to cut out so many trees. When the vard is graded nice ly, and well set in grass and the trees get two or three years' growth, we will have one of the prettiest public squares in this part of the btate. It never-uouhllia-ve been- 4tade4o4ok- well with all those trees in the yard. The probabilities are it won't be many years till another "choppin" out will have to be done. Gale, in Rich Hill Review. Race conditions in Illinois ate somewhat alarming. If the negro people were mistreated in Missouri or any other Southern State as they a re in Illinois, a deafening howl would go up in every Northern State. In many strongly Republican towns andcities in Illinois the white laboring element object to working in shops where negroes are employed, and demand not only that the negroes shall be discharged, but that they shall leave the towns aud cities. At Eldorado, in that state, the people drove all the negroes out of the town under threat of their lives, and the sheriff, Sam Baxter, was powerless to protect them. The Governor has sent one ortwo companies of militia to Eldor ado and promises to protect the ne groes if fhey return. The sheriff savs it is not his businesss to hunt up the negroes or to bring them back to Eldorado. Clinton Democrat.
