There will be more wheat sown this fall if the asorr i favorable than there was last fall. This section of the state i too high to depend entirely on corn. Exclusive farming does not pay as well as diversified farming and he who undertakes to make or break on one crop generally succeeds in breaking. The Harrison Sc Morton club meets every Saturday night and the Cleveland Thurman club every Monday night. Both clubs he increasing their membership each week and if you do not belong to either you should join at once and let people know which side you are on.

The exercises for next Saturday and Monday nights promises to be interesting. The effort of the Russell correspondent to the Abilene Gazette to convey the idea that the burning of James Bond's wheat was caused by the republicans is as near the truth as the correspondence to the same paper saying the corn crop was assured and that Russell county would go democratic. We love a liar but this Russell correspondent suits us too well. The well known publisher, L. W.

Dickcrsqn, of St. Louis, has recently issued a book, entitled "The National Contest." It gives valuable information on the Tariff question, Statistics, valuable for every voter. Also complete biographies of Cleveland and Thurman, and Harrison and Morton. Agents are wanted to sell this book. See advertisement in another column.

The Salina Record, a new paper published at Salina, J. M. Davis editor, commenced its fight for cx-istenc last Saturday morning. The typographical work is done in the Republican office. The paper is bright ami newsy.

Its politics is democratic and what the citizens of Saline county have done to be inflicted with two democratic papers is more than we know but we wish the publisher financial success. Attention Democrats! A full altcnhancc of the members of the Bunker Hill Cleveland Thurman Club is asked for at our next meeting Monday night, August 20. Hon. Tibbets will be present and address the Club. All interested in a good government economically administered are invited to be present.

W. Blackburn Co. can do better by you on real estate loans than any other agency in the county. The local politicians are flying around to sec what their chances arc at the convention which meets in Russell to-day. Enough rain, apparently has fallen in Kansas to keep the state from drying up within the next twenty-four hours.

Kansas City Star. The support given to the newspapers of this county by the oflke seekers leave them in a fine condition to bolt if there is any crooked work carried on. The types last week made us say that "Gallant Little Phil Sherman was dead." It is one thing to write an article correctly and another thing to have it appear so in print. A good many democratic papers are asking fou joint discussions. We cannot see what good there will be in such a plan unless it is the only way the democrats can dra a crowd.

We go to prets one day earlier this week than usual. This fact and the fact that we have been absent part of the time starting another office accounts for the shortness of local matter this week. Some one unknown to us left a couple fine watermelons at the residence of A. T. Ulsh but as he is now working in Salina the melons soured before they were found.

The donor has the thanks of thi.i office just the same. A Democratic County convention will be held at Russell on Saturday, September 1, iSSS, at 2 o'clock p. m. for the purpose of placing the county officers in nomination. Center township is entitled to 6 delegates in the 1st precinct.

The people of Ireland are clamoring for home rule so they can protect themselver from the penefits of England's free trade ideas and the citizens of the United States will do well to profit by the experience of that unhappy and persecuted people. We were presented Monday with a fine lot of potatoes that were grown by W. II. Biays on the lots near his house. The 'squire got about thirty bushels off three lots, and this would make about 120 bushels to the acre which is not bad for an off year.

John Martin is drawing big crowds in Kansas because he is a good talker, and the republicans of that state always turn out to hear what the Democrats have to nay. The Democrats will vote for him and the Republicans will vote for Humphrey. Kansas City Those who are making American flags at home will remember that the rule of the navy in regard to the flag's proportions is this: "The flag is thirteen stripes wiJc and twenty-one stripes long. The union (blue) is seven stripes square. There is one star for each State in the union.
