The base ball game played on the fair grounds Friday between the Bona parte and Memphis clubs was certainly the most hotly contested game played in this locality the present season. The Bonaparte club have been easy winners at every game they have play ed this season, but the Memphis boys made them play their best and do all the "beefing"' possible in order to cap ture the game.

Loom is, of Kansas CiF . Mo., a special inspector of risks for the Home Insurance Company of New York, has been in this city and county for the past ten days inspect ing the city and county business of F. H. Hartlett's big agency. j Mr. Loom is is a very pleasant and II ...I ..I .1.-. ...... --..v-. agreeaote geutieuuui, uu cavin- himself well pleased with our city and the surrounding country. Ashe came here in the regular course of his trav els in this part of the state, without any information from the company as to the ; sie of the business here, he having in spected the business of some of the lar ger city agencies in two or three day s' lime, tie naturally expected to get through and away in a day or two. and was consequently very much surprised j to find that it took himself and a clerk two days to copy a list of the business from the books, and that he would do well to tret through in a month if lie in- j speeted every risk of the agency that j was in the Home Company. So far Mr. Loom's has been well satisfied with; risks he has seen and speaks very highly I of Mr. Hartlett's work. The Home is only one of seven companies represen ted in Mr. Bartlctt's extensive agency business. A poiiey in the state mutual life in surance company costs less than half what any other concern charges and is just as safe. A policy can be secured at this office or by calling on .1. L.

Leach called the convention to order, when .J. L. Hoi ley was selected temporary chairman and .lames Gilles pie secretary. The usual committees were appointed and notice given that the caucus would be held to "fix mat ters." All candidates were invited to attend. F. M. Pile, who had received the People's, party nomination for pre siding judge, was present and in a short speech made an exhibition of himself. A large majority of the convention at tended the caucus, and when the after noon session began, everything was j greased and in line running order, but in our town. some in their enttmiasm or because they had looked on the wine when it was red. made humiliating blunders ami gave the caucus work away. About 2 o'clock Mr. Holley called the conven tion to order in a very nice manner. The committee on permanent organiza tion reported the namesof Felix Cham bers for chairman and .1. D. Fordmy for secretary, which was sanctioned by the delegates. Chambers developed the fact that he was the possessor of a voice that resembled the drawing of a aw over a hard board very slowly. Fordney seemed a little on the bashful order but was finally induced to come forward and record the minutes. Prob ably in their eagerness to make nomi nating speeches, the delegates put off resolving for "Grant and Garfield" and commenced making the winning (?) ticket, J. t'. Leach was the only one suggested for representative, as per caucus instruction, and someone moved that the rules he suspended and Mr. Leach nominated by acclamation. The chairman succeeded in getting the mo nition partially-put. when he called for nominations for presiding judge. It was just as well, though, for the caucus had decided and this little technicality will never be ailed for in an election content. F. M. Pile was nominated in the same manner for presiding judge, and as he is slated for a journey up that oft navigated stream, also, it will make no difference. Then the chairman whispered for more victims, nomina tions for judge of the eastern district, when a delegate from ihe western dis trict, who seemed bursting with enthu siasm, proposed Jerry Dunn, and was called down, and the regular caucus se lected person made that nomination, and Mr. Dunn s name went on the ticket of "Grant and Garfield,1 (long since dead i. Sam'l McWilliams and Thomas Pile were placed in nomination for judge of the western district and the former distanced the latter long before they came to the home stretch. .1. L.

A new town ordinance has been pass ed by the board of trustees of this city, requiring the owners to pay a license of $1 for each and every dog they may own and keep within the corporation.
