wright ot Marvin, and another gentleman were seriously poisoned by eating canned beef. The beef had been opened the day befoie and remained open until eaten. Dr. Miley was called and the parties restored. People can not be to careful how they use canned goods.

The poison in this case was probably generated by the can standing open before being eaten. Tom Page started Sunday night for a visit of friends and relatives in Kirwin. We wish him a pleasant and happy time. C. Hickenlooper met with what might easily have been a very serious accident Wednesday.

He was asr sistingMr, Dutcher in the harvest field, and was stapding up in the wagon when the team became restless and began, to- back, Mr Dutcher, who was also iu the wagon struck the horses sharply, and starting up suddenly they threw Mr II out of the wagon, and he struck the ground with his head. He was painfully-hurt but we trust he will soon recover. J. Kelly left the 'burg Tuesday for Kirwin, where he will make his future home Mr Kelly intends going into business for himself, and the Times hopes fortune may smile at him once or twice anyway. Yesterday afternoon this section oi the country was visited by a rain and hail storm.

The storm appeared to come in two sections, the first from the southwest and the cast and the: hardest from the northwest. Fortunately the storm was not accom panied by any wind to speak of, and the appearances are that very little damage was done to crops, Several window lights were broken, 12 being broken out of the court house. The hail stones were quite large, some being nearly the size of a hen's egg. From appearances we fear the storm was much heavier north and east of here than at this point. Up to the time of going to press nothing of importance has been accomplished by the democratic con-vention at Chicago.

However from the reports in the daily's it seems Ben Butler is left, as is also Cleveland, and Thurman now appears to stand the chance, for the I this Green apples and peaches at John Gephart's. Albert White has our thanks for favors conferred. A McElroy went to Kirwin on business this week. Did you use Harmon's new buggy? Its a fine one. Try a ride in if Boots and shoes and summer dry goods cheap for cash at Winship's.

Highest market price price paid for fat bogs by S.G.Nay, Marvin, Ks. Parties in town who will board teachers during the institute will please as to inform the County Superinten-tendeut of that fact. There are exactly four hundred tracts ol farm lands on which the taxes are delinquent in this county. And don't ou forget that A. Ruling has still got a few cyclone hay forks left at 40 cents each.

A fair line ol staple hardware always 011 hand. Sheriff Woods is erecting a new barn on bis premises in the east part of town. Cal. Snodgrass is the architect- S. J.

Hartman, the butter man of Kirwin, was in town Thursday and had his little wagon with him gather ing the surplus of the 'Burg. While at Marvin this week we had the pleasure of making the acquaintance of Ed Wentworth, mail agent and Conductor Madden of the rail- oad. Supt. Lewis has 'engaged Piof. W.

H. Cady, of Chanute, to conduct, and Prof. J. Mtsher, of Kirwin, to instruct in this Normal Instil tute. Winship has reduced prices on boots shoes and summer dry goods in order to conert his stock into cash to invest in fall and winter stock.

Parties desiring repairs of any kind in the harnessmaker's line, or wishing to purchasea new harness, in whole or in part, should not fail to call at Mr. Page's shop on the south side of the square. One hundred and thirty two styles of buttons at D. A.

Among them are enrolled some of our principal business men and solid farmers. F.

He has invested in considerable land in this vicinity of which McElroy McKay have sold him three or four quarter sections. Mr. C. Clearwater, living about six miles southeast ot town on Deer Creek, has lost fiVe cattle this summer from blackleg.

Four of them he lost since Tuesday morning. There is said to be no cure for this disease, and the only known way to prevent it i to rowel every animal in a herd. Ross De Armond returned to Orleans last Monday, where he is em ployed on the Harlan County Press Ross came down on a visit and to celebrate the Fourth. However we did hear some one say that his stay was not as enjoyable -as it might have been. "Of all sad words of tongue or pen, Dr.

Houck called Wednesday and told us of a trip he had taken up in the country toward the head of Big Creek the day before. He says they are having the finest crops in that vicinity of any part of the country he has yet visited. He says fur ther that W. E. Goddard has al ready five acres of rye for pasture growing on a piece of ground from which he has cut this year's crop, and also that he will have "roasting- ears'V-of corn in a few days.

Of such are the men who are making a garden ot 'The Great American Desert." Among those registered at the Central House this week are J. H. Mack and D. Bonbam, of Macksburg, Iowa. J.

Brown, of Bow Creek township, was rather serious ly bitten by a dog a week ago last Saturday, and as a consequence has been unable for duty in the harvest field. Notwithstanding the large number of machines sold in this county this ear in addtion to those already, owned, and in spite of the fact that farmers we working days, nights and Sundays, more grain will be left on the ground than was ever even harvested in this county belore. It's too bad to see it go but it is only another evidence of the capabilities of the county. ATTENTION I Phillipsburg Fost, Xo, 77, G. A.

Who. ownsL the wrecked stone pile adjoining Geo. W. Young's building on the east. Xt seems to us the thing dangerous and the owner should be at once ordered, to reconstruct it on a solid basis, or, else our city dads should take take steps to condemn the thing as a nuisance and puJi, it down.

O. O. will please remember that next Wednesday night is the night for installation of officers. Published by request of members. Tom and Dave Bailey have been visiting friends in Phillipsburg the past week.

Tom has been suffering from a severe attack of rheumatism, and looks a little the worse for wear, however he is rapidly recovering his health. Ritner Smith was rp to Logan on a visit the other day and reports the best of crops up there. Mr. Smith tells us of one man up there who is so unfortunately fortunate as to have so much grain that he's atraid he can't live through it all. Several attorney's from Kirwin, among whom were W.

H. McBride, W. C. Don Carlos and S. H.

Bradley, attended the adjourned term of the District Court at Phillipsburg ou Monday and Tuesday. Farmers report the harvest of small grain this year the largest ever was known, and is feared an immense amount 01 it will be lost for want of machinery and hands to harvest it. Many machines are running day and night at present, and all that can be is being done to save the bulk of it. Frank Strain goes lame. He could not ride circus worth" a cent.

Rev. Allen called the other day and said he didn't have any news in particular but he showed us some wounds on his hands and told us how sore his shins were, and on the whole seemed to think he had been roughly treated by a young cow he was try ing to milk. He says to the boys, now that the bicycle is gone, that anyone who is really thirsting for ad venture, can go and try to milk that cow. Kirwin Independent: The probability is that Nels jacobson, who is serving a term in the penitentiary at Leavenworth, for connection with the murder of Brown in this county in the summer of 1880, will be pardoned in a short time. A petition was recently presented to the Governor by W.

T. S. May of this place, which was numerously signed, and there seems to be no reason to doubt that it will be favorably acted upon as soon as the Governor has time to make the necessary investi gation of the. Kirwin Chief: Lettie Ensign, aged 13 years, and daughter of.H. L.

Easign, who resides about four miles southwest of this city was bitten on the ankle by a large prairie rattlesnake last Saturday evening.

As to the horror of a professiiual says the Mew York Sun, there is-really no sound reason for that. Because a woman works for her living sha need not be any the less charming than one who is brought up to expect she must be supported by some one else. It true there is a great deal of talfe about woman unsexing herself, but after all that is something they cannot do.

Besides, if" she is able to add to his $18 or $20 petr week substantial fees earned by they can afford to buy more literature and to make more agreeable the surroundings of their home; It is a great mistake to suppose that worsen are onl cliatrming in- a state off pecuniary d-ppen doUce, that while they are fitted well enough to do odd jobs- about a house, they should have no active interests ont side.
