BUSH’S “SUGGESTION.” On last Wednesday the popu list. or rather a few of them, met at the court house and among- other things suggested that James Otis Alexander Kush and J. M. Pittman have their names put on the ticket to run , before the democratic primary, for representative and county judge, respectively, and that the populist go into the primary and single shot them and nominate them, if possible. In the first place, this is sinr, ply a scheme of one James Otisj Alexander Kush. In the second place they will not get on the democratic ticket before the primary, and, in the third place, we have never heard of as much ‘‘gair’ being displayed in all our lives. We have no objection to as many ‘‘pops’’ coming into the primary as want to obligate themselves to stand by the ticket, but for them to assume that the demo cratic managers were a set of blatant fools and would let two 'of the leading populists get on that ticket and run before a dem ocratic primary, certainly dis plays “gall to let. ’’ We do not believe that the rank and tile of the party will want to go into the primary un der any such circumstances. They will have a candidate for gov ernor: how can they go into the primary and support him? Kush is not satisfied with boss ing his own party, but wants to come in our primary and run that. We always knew that he had plenty of “gall’’ but never knew that it reached such pro portions as this. The Democratic County Cen tral Committee has been called to meet next Tuesday to act up on this strange demand or “sug gestion.” We do not attempt to dictate to the committee but if we had our wax we would simply have a democratic primary, and if a populist or any other white man wanted to come in and stand by the ticket, all well and good. If Bush A- Co. wants to run. let them get out in the open on their own ticket, and watch the fur fly. He never could be elected by his own people and now he is trying to squirm in through the democratic primaay. We wait to see the outcome. PUTTING IMPLEMENTS IN ORDER. Within the next forty days the farmer will have use for his plows, harrow, disc plow and other implements to put in his crop. It is of marked import ance that all the tools should be in order, sharp and in condition to do the best work with the least effort of human or horse power. A small for^e and bel lows can be purchased for a small sum, and will pay for themselves in one season. The boys on the farm should be taught the use of saw, adz, drawing: knife, how to sharpen plow points, how to mend a link in a trace chain, how to mend a | broken plow stock, to put threads 1 sn a bolt, and a dozen other. thing’s that can be done at home in less time than it will require to go to the blacksmith in town. In this age time must not be wasted, or the period for plant ing the crop will be delayed. IP.ve a grind stone that can be turned with a treadle to keep hat 'h ts and other tools on a keen edge. The wise farmer will keep all these ini] 'ements on the (arm, and the boys will be better farm ers and do their work more cheerfully when these conven iences are placed at their com mand. It. It. OASTLKR. The above named gentleman is a candidate for alderman from ward 2 of the city of Prescott subject to the vote of the people in the coming city election to be held April drd. Mr. Oastler is a republican and is running on that ticket, but he believes in a fair deal, and promises, if elected, to always stand for what is to the best interests of that ward and the whole town. He ha.- been a citizen of Prescott for 5 or <> years and is thoroughly identified with the interests of the town. He says he believes in more street improvement and better fire protection, especially in his ward. Consider Mr. Oastler’s claims and he will be satisfied.

He will - appreciate anything you do for him at the primary. Remember Tom at the polls and if he is elected, promises to give you his best services. When competition began, in 1894, there was literally not a' farm house in the country that was connected with a telephone exchange: and. perhaps, it is no exaggeration to say that there was not a farm house that had a telephone. The Bell company de clined absolutely to construct or establish farmers’ exchanges or to build farmers’ linos. The best that a farmer who desired con nection with the nearest town could do was to rent two instru ments at $100 a year and build and maintain his own line. When a farmer wanted the telephone people to build a line out to his place, he was compelled to guar antee tolls amounting to at least $500 a year. Naturally, under such conditions, the farmer was cut off from telephone communi cation, and that meant from the world, as he understands it to day. Now a farmer can buy a ! telephone outright for from live dollars to sixteen dollars, accord ing to quality, and he and his •neighbors can build their own. line. The most valuable desolate islands in the world are the Lia kovs. in the Arctic ocean, off the mouth of the Lena, in Siberia. They are frost bound and utterly barren save for arctic moss, but they contain such enormous | quantities of fossil ivory that they are exceedingly valuable in fact, though uninhabited save for the ivory diggers and of themselves incapable of support ing life, they produce a revenue i of £1,000,0000 a year. London Queen. An exchange says: “The peo ple of Ohio have been wrestling with a race war. and the Ohio whites burned the homes of a \\ iole settlement of negroes, be cause of the offending of one j negro. In the south they simply hang the negro guilty of the crime and let it go at that.” Congress is endeavoring to pass a law that will have a ten dency to make federal courts get out and hustle for business. This is a beautiful thing for the lawyers, but just a trifle discon certing to the people. Although the first robin has been here for some time, stand ing around on one foot, for some unaccountable reason, the first < straw hat has not seen fit to blaw in. if the Chinese Boxers, who are looking for trouble, knew Sec retary Taft’s telephone number, it might save them lots of time. < The N. Y. surgeon who sewed up a towel inside of a patient, did not include it in his bill. Some doctors are so generous. Castro would like nothing bet ter than an uprising against him. It is a long time since he had a revolution for breakfast, Gen. Funston who is looking i for trouble in China, must tt ink there are some rivers over there that need swiming. The reason why the new Rus sian constitution has not been published is very simple; it has not yet been written. Now that March has drifted in like Mary’s little lamb, we may expect to see it go out like a cage of Roosevelt bear’s.
