TSA, PICKING ItT JATAH mm Louis Meyer was born in the Kingdom of Wuatemburg, Germany, February 3rd, 1817. He emigrated to the United States in 1856, settling near Cincinnati, Ohio. He was married to Anna Rosenbaum, Dec, 23, 1873, at Mt Carmel, Ohio.

Rose Anderson, of Westminister, Ohio, and a brother, Charles, of Mt. Carmel, Ohio. In 1886 the deceased removed with his family to Harper county Kansas, settling on a farm five miles southeast of Attica, where he resided until 1901 at which time he took ud his residence in Attica, where his death took place July 7, 1916, at the age of 69 years, 5 months, and 4 days, after several weeks of painful and in tense suffering, which he bore bravely and patiently. While still a young man he be came a member of the berman Reform church, but after his removal to Harper county he united with the Methodist Episcopal church in which he continued until his passing to the church tri umphant. He was also a member of the M.

VV. and of the I. O. 0. having joined the latter organization in 1871.

He was cheerful and kindly in manner, and leaves to his widow and children the blessed memory of these traits, showing themselves ways. All these bereaved ones have the tender sympathy of every friend and neighbor in the community. The funeral was held at the Methodist church at 3 o'clock Sunday afternoon, Rev. Albert E.

KANSAS. $31,000.00. ReserOe Bank. Golden Wedding Anniversary Mr. and Mrs.

Robert Adams cele brated their fiftieth anniversary at the home of their son, C. P. Adams, in the Valley last Saturday. This was an unusually pleasant eccasion. as all the children were present, seven, with eighteen grandchildren and one great grandchild.

An elaborate three course dinner was served, to which all did ample justice. Those present were: Rev." and Mrs. Robert Adams, Virgil; C. L. Adams and family of Black well, Okla 0.

J. Adams and family of Hardtner, R. C. Adams of Blaine, 0. M.

Adams and family of Salina, Mrs. II. P. Orr.of Highland, Rev. W.

T1JJL 'iAV'Wcn I Japan and China introduced the world to tea, and its delightful flavor and soothing qualities have made it the universally popular beverage. E2 we doubt, he bought the stock at from 30 to 50 cents on the dollar. He wants the taxpayers of Harper county to furnish the money for him to buy the remainder of the stock, claiming that he has an Op tion on the stock for a year.

And if he should be elected county printer, the conclusion is that by reason of his Option he will get the remainder of the stock of the company at a discount. In other words, he asks the people of the county to elect him county printer that he may buy a News paper Plant at a discount, and pay for it out of the money of the Taxpayers. Now is that not a modest re quest for a young man in the county just long enough to be a candidate and who is so modest that he advocates the re-election of all the county officers save the County Printer, wanting that office for himself by the votes and money of the taxpayers. Now editor-manager of The Republican Publishing Company, drawing a good salary, he wants the taxpayers to put more money into the corporation treasury or buy the plant that he may play with it. Other candidates for the office, other publishers of the county, invested their own money in their plants and buildings, having faith in the people and the county.

What do you think ok Mr. Combs' proposition to the tax-payers of Harper county? R. P. McCollocii. Dist.
