"Dc you know Lew So-and-So out there In Kentucky, the famous horseman?" he asked. "Yes," was the answer. The reverend doctor smiled his kindly smile.

He drove in despite his good resolutions, he fell from grace and presently sen his horse around the track In the fashion of his unre-generate days. Somebody saw him and reported him. He- was summarily turned out' of the church. A day or two afterward a friend met him and asked him if the dismissal from the church had not been a great blow to him.

I We can do almost, any kind of Job printing for you on short notice t-aA lowest prites. 28 1 C. be she taw The Kiowa Review contalnea the following editorial this week; The editor of the Kiowa News is-still haromeriiig-awav at the bosses who an runuiuiz the republican machine for their own selfish ends and a few chos en lambs. The News editor is old enough to know better. He knows It is considered in the light of treachery fur any one to take the bosses, to task He knows, or should know, that editors who have opinions of their own and have the nerve to express them, are not at home in the republican party es pecinlly In Kansas where the boss sits on the throne and herds bis subjects If Jesus were in politics iu Kansas he would be helpless as against the re publican bosses and their hired aub jects.

Better let up, Bro. Ilhberlein and suck vour medicine through a quill of the bosses' orders and then you may be able to get in the swim. Bro. Hull of the Review is correct in the main, but he loses sight of two things: 1) The News it not owned by a set of politicians, and consequently its editor is free to express whatever opinion of public men and measures he may deem justified and proper; and 2) The News does not depend primarily on the support of selfish politicians and schemers whose sole bject is to have an organ to sound their praise and bamboozle the people in their individual interest, but it is conducted newspaper and looks for its patronage to bus inessmen and the people generally. We have personally no political axe to grind and have no personal grlev arrce against any politicians, as such, and least against any republican of ffceliulder, but not being under any obligation for favors shown us by any one of them, and not even enjoy lng the good will of some of them and their strikers at present, we do not feel in duty and honor bound to direct our labors towards their individual inter est at the expense of principle and the interests of the people at large- There is no law against publishing and outspoken republican newspaper without the consent of a few petty party bosses.

We have the endorse ment of everyone of our subscribers to edit the News just as we do, and the liberal patronage we receive from the people and businessmen in whose interest we labor is the only glory and reward we aim to merit and Woods County News.

No one, we dare say, could wish for a more perfect climate. Hardly enough cold weather to kill the house And another noticeable feature of this beautiful winter weather is the-frequent spring-like showers; just enough to keep the wheat in excellent condition and. plenty of good fresh water for stock.

xrv. PAWNEES. After making a-drive of a couple of miles though mudholes and ruts filled with water we caste to a creek which we had to ford. The creek- bank was steep -on one side, the water in the bed deep and on the other-side a swampy bottom oorered withseruby trees and dense The situation was not cheer ful. hard and disagreable work for man and beast' inevitable Another train hat! preceded ours that morning and the drivers were cursing their bad luok, a we came up.

After a short consultation the wagon-mast ers gave orders to "unyoke" all but a few teams. All hand were put to work to prepare a way to get over. After a couple of hours of hard work, a rough bridge was constructed out of logs the steep bank cut and- the road through, the bottom cleared of trees that had been uprooted or blown down during the hurricane-like storm the previous day. Teams were doubled, and with whoops and yells a number of the wagons were taken over and out on the high firm ground beyond the marshy bot tom. Several trips had been made, and the brack had now become all most bottomless.

Several of the wag ons of the first trains stuck hopelessly in mudholesj one wagon had tipped over, another had run against a stump and stood there with a broken tongue and front axle, a third, loaded with an enormous piece of machinery intended for a quarz-mill, had sunken so deep that only part of the huge castfng was yet to be seen, and in an short time afterwards all was out of sight. Whoops, imprecations too blasphemous to recall, clanking of chains, and the report, of all the whips cracked with vengeance, screeching and moaning wagons a babel of noises, and splashing mud and water along the entire line. The first half of our train was over, and now we were ready to start the other half. With fourteen yoke of cattle in front of each wagon the order was given to pull Down over the steep short cat went the first wagon, and on it went for a Quarter of a mile. when the cattle were stopped to rest.

The following wagon stucK fast in the mud right at the start, Down went the wheels into the soft claybank in the cut, and every "pull all together." or "yank off the teams" would only cause the mud. to bulge up higher in front of the axles. The team. that had partly made the trip through the timber, was taken back white I was left as guard by the wagon. or nan an nour, pernapa, had been sitting on the rear end of the wagon-tongue not dreaming of Indians or danger of any kind, when.

lookiner no I was startled to see an Indian, wrapped to his chin in I bright red blanket, stand at the road side not more than ten yards irom Involuntarily my hand went to the side where plainsmen usually narrv a revolver Mr. Olds still had mine but I had a sharp bowie-knife, The Indian not moving, 1 did not draw my only weapon, 1 knew the Ways of half-civilized Indians very well, but had my doubt about the intentions of their relatives on the Plains. The figure in red stood there like a lifeless statue. With composure I began to study the situation. No feather in the glossy black hair, not a sign of paint on the yellow skinned face, of rather small size.

and Drobablv of about my own height no warrior! I came to the conclusion, my visitor was only a boy, and not a dangerous foe. "How'dy I said. A smile and nod of the head in reoly. Slowly the boy I was sure it was a boy began to come towards me, but I had no desire to become too Intimate with even a young Indian-boy at that particular motioning to a stump in front of him, I told him to "sit down I "I would have been more at ease, perhaps, if I had known what was concealed under that blanket. Can't trust an Indian better keep him at a distance- The Indian sat down, but would not unfold his ominous looking garb- an inch.

I used strategy. Taking a biscuit out one of my blouse pockets I tossed towards my visitor, and began to eat myself. A shapely arm appeared out of the red fold, and the morsel was caught with dexterity, quickly the arm disappeared again and only now and then thu hand with the bread came in view. At last both hands came forth, held together with upturned palms, and a youthful voice said: "Sugar I shook my head. The blanket slipped, so a pair of ourved shoulders became visible, and, more pleading tone my visitor begged-for sugar.

With every repetition ef the word "sugar" the hollow the hands was diminished, and folds of the garb sank lower. last only one hand was held out towards me, the blanket dropped to waist, and the begger said, smiling, like I had never seen an Indian mile: "Little augar much good!"

I told the story to Mr, Olds In the evening after had heard him make remarks nbout the Pawnees. With a smile be "Presum ably she was a decoy, and more of her tribe were about in the brush don't tell the boys about it, at least not to-night. Pawnees will steal, like other Indians, if they have a chance, and their squaws want sugar bad- as any of them you acted wisely keep away from them, and dont let them come too close to yourself, is a good rule with Indians at all times." We saw more Pawnees after thatrbut I had no more adventures with any of their squaws. (To Mntiaatti xt nit.1 CommtrM of Polar Expeditions, From Scrihner's Magazine: Probably the most important results of immediate practical use to both science and commerce will be the gain to the newly born science, oceanography. The ever-Increasing usefulness of the ocean for the needs ot modern commerce, of warfare, of cable service and as a nursery for food makes It necessary that we know everything possible about' it.

We must know not only the surface; but the bottom and the Inter mediate waters. We must 'know not only the warm seas, but the cold as well. There is a constant interchange between the water of the tropics and that of the poles, Just as there' Is an Interchange of the winds. The cold, Ice-laden waters have a tendency to flow into warmer regions. The overheated torrid waters sink and flow poleward.
