Tolerton, State (Jaine and I'Wli (.'oinmkiloner, came to Holt county this week, and spent Tuesday at l-akc, looking over tlie .situa tion then', preparatory to ridding the lake of tlie coarse and undt-sirahte tlsh in these waters, especially the Kar and shad, which are now a dan Ueroiis nifiiace to the "atiie lUli of this lake, on account of the vast tin lit her of them. They not only destroy the irame IMi lint destroy the spawn so fat that the lake Is nearly depopu lated of hass, erapple, pike and blue Kills iMintlsh.j This lake Is ettln very low, as the water from the river lias been kept out, hence the proiik's are nearly all dry, and the tl-h are coiillned In a ery small hotly of water, and rlKht now, or In a few weeks, will Imj one of the most opportune times that could le had for reiiiovliiK' the coarse tlsh, H-.li Commissioner Tolerton thor oughly understands what Is needed at till- lake, and is very enthusiastic In his work, all oier the state, In preserving the irame and tlh, and Is making eery effort to rid the state of the market hunters, s' 1 tiers and "snag-liners," and especially do the ".sitag-llner.s" tlo as much to Injure the game tlsh, as Is done by any other means. He made a careful survey of the lake, looking carefully Into every detail that would Improve this line I n nly of water. Itepresentatlve citizen- from all parts of the county were there, to aid by suggestion, and also to "show" ('ommiss(iiitr Tolerton, who it nearly a native Mlssoiirlau. Plight after dinner a meeting was held, and Coinmlsslnui'r Tolerton In a short speech, saying tlie right thing at the right time, and right to tlie pol ul , asked those present to make suggestions and express their views in legard as to what was best to Ih done. It was dually decided, almost unanimously, ihat the work of clean lug out the lake and pulling It In a llrst -elass condition, should be at tended to at once, and work Is now being dune preparatory to commenc ing work In earnest, from the llrst to middle of October, and continuing until the lakt! Is in tlrst-class coudi lion, or free.ing weather overtakes them. We are Informed that be will, as sihiii as thu lake Is In condition, place In ll two or three ear loads of spawn and breeders.

The Chautauqua was a complete suc cess, both as an entertainment and financially. Tlie report of thu secretary-treasurer showed all bills paid and a balance of over one hundred dollars In the treasury. Our people tcllevc In the Chautauqua Idea and already I.Vhi worth of season tickets have Im'('U sold for l'.tl J. This Is a splendid beginning and tlie next thing in order Is an organi zation and to this end Messrs. Claude Williams. William Markt and ('has. Koock were elected a committee to circulate tlie guarantee list. We should all Join to make a big Chau tauqua for 11112. With TOO friends al ready holding season tickets and a list of a couple hundred of the busi ness men and women of Oregon and vicinity to present as a guarantee to the bureaus and other llruis that are to furnish the talent and materials, there will be no question about secur ing the best for the 11112 Chautauqua. The committee named above say they will Ik; ready to report this week and accordingly a meeting of all the friends of Chautauqua is called at the court house Tuesday evening, the lUth, at H o'clock, to elect a president, secretary-treasurer, and other mem lers of the executive committee and transact other business that may come beforo tlie meeting.

Thu Amurlcan Civic Federation has declared war on impure foods and drugs. Its president, Seth Low, de clares that "recent exposures in New York, Philadelphia, Chicago and oth er large cities hulk-ale the magnitude and far-reaching character of tlie vio lation nf thu food and drug laws." It Is a situation, hu says. which '.'alls for drastic treatment. Thu Federation proposes to Inaugurate a country wide crusadu against violators of thu law. Such a crusade Is what is needed to secure Inforcemeiit of the food and drug laws. So far inforcemeiit has depended on national and state of' Hclals, the majority of whom have been political creatures pure and.-lin pie. Among them all, but few have been able to withstand thu Inllueuces of corporations and concerns deter mined to foist Impure goods oil the public. Even Dr. Wiley hlmsulfhas been effectually restrained by the Itemsen board, created by opponents of tlie law and directed liy them. lnfoa'cment of law depends as much on the people themselves as on public officials. If thu people do not discriminate between pure and Im pure products, if they do not suppoit in every way pothle officials charged with Infoicement, law soon becomes a dead letter and violators immune. The people must he awakened to their own best Interests. This can bust hu done through such an organi zation as thu Amurlcan Civic Federa tion. The crusadu to be Inaugurated ought to hu one of the most buncllcial ever Instituted, and probably will be. ATTENTION, COMRADES. Members of Meyer Post, 0, a. It., will please remember thulr next meet ing will be held Saturday, September 2;i. Let there be a full attendance. F. S. Mohoan, Commander. Long Time Ago. There wore two Unique' cliaractCTB .Jin attendance at mir.cwyt last week. These were Sain ana .nose i-isner, sons of Atito.i' and Delilah. Visiter, who settled on the river at or neMr old'Marletta back In the 40's. These brothers were bom there. Saul fit now 00 years of age and Mose Is .11. It Is Sam s llrst visit to Oregon since he was six years of age, when he came with his father to get a load of apples. There being no railroad, It was a long and tedious tlrlve, tint, he says he enjoyed It, and especially the eating of tlie good ripe and lus cious fruit. At that time the onlj' orchards of consequence In tlie cotin- ty were those in Lewis and .Nodaway townships. Abraham llrowit then living on lo, .V, 117, now in Forbes township, at that time had the larg est orchard and was the llrst to be set out In the county and which hu planted In When Sam came there was no pub lic park surrounding thu court house and It had been built only seven years prior to his coming here, and was built by Henry Watson long since deceased. The county was only HI years old, and Samuel Watson represented the county In the legislature. Its popu lation was about 0,000, and tlie as sessable wealth was tl,if-1,0iHl. Eli jah H. Norton, of Platte county, was the circuit Judge: Oaten Crow, sher iff: Andrew Hughes, circuit attorney; E. Van llusklrk, circuit clerk. The pioneers of that section of the county, then known as Clark town ship, consisted of the Itosellus', Danker's, Walter's, Heiume's, Aher ens', Hcrtram's, Peters', Ituck's and others. Children of these are still lu now Lincoln township, and their ear ly struggles are what lias made thai section of thu county what Ills today- among tlie most prosperous por tions of our county. It was Mose Fisher's tlrst. visit to thu county seat, and it Is thu bro ther's tlrst railroad ride and for the Hrt t line In their lives they saw a three-story building. They wero guests at the Hotel Woodland while here and on arising Thursday morn ing became lost and weru only able to rind their way- out by thu aid of friends. They own a small farm near old Marietta, which Is principally in fruit and they are prosperous. Much of tlie old original farm has been con llscated by the Missouri Hlver. They are Ixith bachelors, live to themselves and attend strictly to their own af fairs, and are every way law-abiding. They had two sisters, Mary ami Ll.rte, both of whom have left that section and their whereabouts aru un known to them. The former of these girls kept house for a long time for I 'tide Levi Dodge, of Mound City. These brothers were here as wit nesses in the suit of the Hlg Tarklo Drainage District vs. Fritz. Voltmer, and it was the Hist time they were ever in court, either as witnesses or litigants. Two Leavenworth Boys. Twenty-six years ago two young men weru cleiks In two Leavenworth stores. Each of these young men learned tlie business thoroughly for they weru both Industrious, both so ber and both bright. Hut one uf these young men Is today thu owner of the store he then worked in and is rated by the commercial agencies as worth t'.'o.niiu, while thu other one is working yet for sinui'body else at a low salary and Is leading a very un happy life. And thu reason for It? Thu onu who lias succeeded stuck lo that particular line of business and was ambitious to succeed in It. Thu other one Imagined hu didn't like that business and was always schem ing to gut out of it and Into some thing ulsu. Hu would Jump around rrom onu thing to another, but luthe end always came back to thu business that l.u knew. Employers know that they can't count 011 him and hu Hnds it hard, now, to gut a Job. Hu Is thu rolling stone that gathers no moss. His head is still full of schemes. Hu Is still chasing the pot or gold at thu foot of the rainbow. A few years moru and hu will bu down and out.
