Meets on exery first and third Tuesday night of each month. PEARL GRIMES, W. M. MARY SMITH, Secretary. Notice! OFFICIAL CITY PAPER The business men of Severy have all agreed to close their places of business during the reunion from 1 to 4 o'clock p.

m. Square Deal and Reform. The Topeka Capital prints without comment and without denial a letter from a subscriber who makes these charges or statements: The "old machine" legislature of 1905 paid the expenses of the state with $4,250,000. Then the reform began, and the machine was smashed. The result was that the legislature of 1907 appropriated $5,250,000 for expenses and spent it.

Then came the real 18-carat reform legislature of 1909. and it appropriated and spent $6,500,000. This was an increase in state expenses by the present lature over the machine" islature of 1905 of almost fifty per cent. There has in the meantime been an increase of only about 2 per cent in population. The increase in taxation has been due wholly to the new fangled ideas of political "reform." Which suggests to the Lawrence Gazette the remark that we must have reform, even if it does come high.Fredonia Citizen.

Fredonia will have free mail delivery Oct. 15. Next Monday, Sept. 6th, will be a legal holiday, Labor Day, and there will be no mail delivered on the routes. Passenger traffic on the railroads seems to be increasing as the trains are daily crowded with people bound for points in the United States and Europe.

This appears to be a 17-year-locus year. The trees are full of the pesks, noisy little bugs, and the evenings sound as noisy as a charivari at a country wedding. -Howard Courant. The county board of health have begun action to banish the hitching racks from the proximity of store buildimgs in the yarious towns. Ness county now has such orders in eflect.

An investigation showed that the horses stirred up the dirt and refuse which settled on the provisions in the that flies were attracted by and hatched in the accumulated filth. -Neodesha Register. A great many Republicans of Kansas who believe the voters should have the right to make platforms, than the candidates, are advocating a state convention early next year to be unofficial, but binding for the adoption of a State Republican platform, and perhaps for the nomination of candidates for the primary to be held later. These Republicans believe that in this way the Republican voters can gain control of their party and eliminate the Populistic and non-Republican features which have so seriously reflected upon the state and its splendid history. This plan would enable the rank and file of the Republican party to make a state platform and take this work out of the hands of the candidates themselves.

The only persons who will oppose this plan of permitting the voters to have a voice in the making of a state platform will be the politicians who hold office under the present state administration. These prefer a platform made by oflice holders, rather than by a convention representing the great body of Republican voters. -Fredonia Citizen.

E. Marsh. 35-5 What it Costs Not to go to College. Everlasting sorrow: No one ever went to a good business college with honest intent and serious purposes who did not consider it money, time and labor well expended. Thousands who have not gone regret the fact that they did not.

You can go if you really hunger and thirst for an education. No where else will you meet such choice companions. The earth's noblest young women are in the colleges, and at 110 other time of life can you make such strong and lasting friends. Girls and boys from our most cultivated homes assemble annually at our college. If you do not go to college these choice friendships are lost to you forever.

Do not postpone your going to college. Youth is the time for preparation, just as spring is the seed time. The farmer who does not plant his seed in springtime has no harvest. It he hasn't the money to buy the seed, he borrows it. If you haven't the money to go to college, borrow it and pay it back out of your salary earned after graduation.

You can do this. You can prepare yourself to fill your station in life better--or if you must earn your living, you can earn more and choose your occupation. If you are wealthy all the more reason for going to college. Your wealth may go but your education cannot be taken from you. Business education is an asset worth thousands.

It is an equipment for life's work. It gives the power to earn. It destroyes poverty and enthrones prosperity. It cannot be lost or stolen. You cannot afford, dear young reader, not to attend the Fredonia Business College, of Fredonia, Kans.

Remember the words of Chancellor Kent, who said, "The parent who sends his son into the world uneducated, defrauds the community of a useful citizen and bequeaths to it a nuisance." Write for free catalogue at once. Notice. I will soon have to go to the city to buy new goods and I hope all who are indebted to me will call and settic at once. MRS. G.

Music is one of the chief pleasures and accomplishments of the Eskimos. At the Labrador missions violins are used ivy them in the church choir, and brass bands are organized. In "Along the Labrador Coast" Dr. Townsend tells of an evening's entertainment with the Eskimos at Nain. "For over an hour these natives sing to us." he says, "familiar music with Eskimo words-'Rock of 'Holy interspersed with what I take to be secular songs.

Their voices are harn onlous and the singing is of a superior order. We return the compliment in the only way we can with a graphophone. it is indeed a terrible con.e-doxn to 'The Old Apple Tree' and 'Everybody Works But but the Eskimos seem to enjoy it, and greet the songs and their explanation by the taterpreter with peals of laughter. "A song in which a man beats his wire seems especially to amuse them. A Moravian brother told me that they had been unable to win the Eskimo from the wife-beating habit.

Even the wives resent any interference on this score. "An Irish jig makes them shake with joy. and I am sure they would dance we.e there room to stir." Getting Into Practice. It. is often pleasanter to theorize than to perform.

A young law student, says a writer in the Philadelphia Inquirer, was making a study of certain processes of his future profession. He showed an inclination to sit in the house and speculate idly, instead of doing some of the domestic tasks which stood waiting. "Deduction is an interesting process." deciared the youth to his father. "For example, there is a heap of ashes in the yard. That is evidence that the family has recently had fires." "Well, John," interrupted his father, "sa, pose you pursue your studies a little farther by going out and sifting that pile of ashes.

-Youth's Companion. No, Dog! Reared in the strict school of "Yes, sir!" and "NC. s'am!" addressed without thought of servility to ail elders and betters, I find this a season of rare courtesy and scant civility. Well do I remember that awesome scene at my isther's table when a stout and rebellious Little sister, seething with disappointment over some denied dainty, answered "No!" to a well meant proffer of a less desirable dish. "No, dog? or No, cat?" my father inquired with ominous calm.

"No, dog!" the sturdy lass recklessly replied. I quake even now at the thought of the breathless pause which followed, and draw a veil over the painful It Will Do Your Eyes Good to see the New Furniture I have just received, and I assure you it won't hurt your pocket book much to buy it for it is sold on the installment plan.
