MCElroy M- KiV, attorneys. Jera Black and Dr. The. Critic recently heard an excellent tory about Judge Jere Black, the dis-cino-uished lawyer and politician, and Dr. William Elder, also a prominent Pennsvlvanian, and now an official in the treasury department.

Rnth trentlemen were Dora in omer- eet, and were friends from early t.u sYcellent storv- iTinhoth had a weal'h of stories tellers, and both Had. a weaun oi stones auu. fi tUCll A Black was particularly proud ot a description of the way in which he first read Don tjuixote, and was iona oi relating it whenever an appreciative audience could be secured. The story was that in his father's garret at Somerset there stood an old hair trunk in the earliest days or the embryo judge's ca- reer, when his oung mind had just begun to feel tbe want of more varied literary resources than the standard, dog-eared volumes of his father's limited library afforded. Jere wa investigating the garret one rainy day for some diversion, when he chanced to open the old trunk and observed that it was lined, as was the custom, with leaves of an old book.

Little Jere was surprised and somewhat interested. An examination proved that the book was "Don Quixote," and that almost all the pages had been used in lining the trunk. Jere soon became interested in "Don Quixote" and his faithful squire, and as he traced tbe pages further, he grew more and more pleased, delighted, excited and absorbed. The opening chapter was found Under the lid of the trunk, and Jere began to read the wonderful story. and nao-e by page he followed the wind ing plot, rivaling the exploits of the re- i doubtable Don as he sat one moment with his head in the trunk, then climbed into the trunk to read what was pasted on the sides, lay on his back, with the trunk-lid on the top of him, while he perused the bottom, stood on his head to get a nearer view of the obscure corners, and in this acrobatic manner mastered the story, gathered impressions that clung to him throughout his life, and made everlasting friendships with luckless Sancho Panza and erratic Don Quixote.

Judge Black told his story well, and it was well known among his friends. One evening a large gathering of literary and political people, including Jiido-e Black and Dr. Elder, were talk ing of the books of their boyhood, and as'therewere a few persons present wTho never heard the story referred to, the Judge was about to tell it, when Dr. Elder began unexpectedly: "I will never forget the circumstance under which I first read Don Quixote, when I was a boy. The pages of the book were pasted as a lining in an old hair trunk in iny father's garrett, and I went through more gymnastics in following on behind the Don's faithful 6teed through all the sides, angles and trays of that old trunk tnan I ever attempted since." Judsre Black listened speechlessly to the recital, and those who had heard him tell the story glanced suspiciously from Doctor to Judge.

It was evident that somebody had stolen the story or that the Doctor had appropriated it to quiz the Judge, and the latter was not only surprised, but a good deal chagrined. For a long time Black felt hurt over the theft of his story, or the ridicule of his friend; but, after many months, meeting Dr. Elder on the street one day, he said: "Doctor, do you remember our stories of Don Quixote in a hair trunk? Well, that mvsterv has been cleared up. I have found that when we both lived at Somerset my father bought that old trunk from vour father, and we both read Don Quixote the same way out of the same trunk. 'Why didn't 3 011 stand aside and let that woman asked a policeman of ane-ro.

"Case she is mv wile, sau She makes me stan'aroun' at home, but when I ketches her on der street I lets her take her chances, sah.

They were knitting stockings for themselves, as the freak of fashionable handiwork now is, says Clara Belle. 'Cast on 124 stitches equally on four needles," said the one who na! rdF-red to instruct the rounds for the leg two stitciies plain a'd t'ien two purled. Then begin to narrow for the ankle, according to circumstances 11 "Hush," said one of her companions, startled by the steps of the three fellows who had been taking their after dinner 6moke in the adjoining room.

They had heard the instructions about narrowing the stockings from leg to ankle, according to circumstances." and they couldn't resist the desire to let the girls know it by covert remarks, such as the polite creatures could neither get angry or laugh at. Therefore, they planned and executed reyenge. In the momentary absence of their tormentors they pulled a stocking on to the leg of the piano, and set the end into a slipper. The foot and ankle looked normal enough, but above that the carved wood swelled into what would have been fit for a museum if composed of flesh, blood and bone. The fellows, on returning, paw the four girls grouped close togetiier at the end of the piano, but so disposed as to display the decoy leg.

They pricked up their ears and opened their eyes very wide. The expression of admiration gave place to amazement, and that to something like awe. Just as they wrere about to burst with curiosity as to whom the elephantine member belonged the girls walked demurely out of the room, leaving the big and bogus leg behind them. They have been invited to a champagne breakfast. "Pay tha A vounsr man arrived in town tha other day from one of the interior towns, aud was dressed in the height of fashiou-de-country.

The airs he put on treading the pavement attracted the attention of all pedestrians, especially the young ladies, on whom he dispensed soul-invigorating smiles. The rich young lady and the poor girl each caught a smile as they passed him.

During that time tde meeting was entertained with speeches by Chas. Dickey, who Said he voted for the first republican nomineo for president, had voted the republican ticket ever since and was proud of it. He urged upon the young ncn that it was their duty to vote with the party which had right aud justice lor its motto, which crashed the "rebellion, freed ihe slaves, etc Adam McElroy, who said his first vote lor president wouid cast at the coming election aud that he was proud to say it wouid be for that ideal American James G.

AlcCoimiek, who made a telling speech showing the young men that it was to their interests to vote with the patty which favored the protection of borne industry the advancement of liberty and enlightenment and tiie enforcement of law, James V. made a short but glorious speech which cieated a great deal of enthusiasm, I roi. who called attention to the fact that among the "time honored principles of the democrocy" to which ihey have, in every rlatform hut the las-t, "pledged themselves anew" were the Virginia and Ken tucky resolutions of 1847 which first promulgated the doctrine of states' rights, Frank Strain said he was, though not a voter, a republican at the tune of Lincoln's fust election and tiied to prevail upon his father, who was a whig, to vote for Lincoln. On the second election cf Lincoln he was a soldier from the state of Indiana ami was prevented from voting by the laws framed by Hendricks and hts loyal democratic supporters and could still remember how galling it was to see an Iowa regiment which was quartered near match up an 5 vote Mr.

Coleman admired Builer but would vote lor Martin. Geo. Spaulding was a republican and wouid vote that ticket from pres Scent down but owing to the lateness ot the hour and the fact hat the com mittce was ready to report declined to speak at length. The following report of the com mittee on organization was then read and adopted, viz: "1. This organization shall be known a the Blaine and Lotran, and John A.

The object of this club shall be to contribute as much as in its power lies to the success ot republican principles as enunciated in the stale aud national plai forms and especially to work for the election of James G.

The fine weather and threshing are the general topics for conversa tion at present. A party of the young Marvinites took in the dance at Phillipsburg last Thursday night and report an excel lent time. a few of the Marvinites engaged in a little entertainment of the fandango order at Mrs. Angeroth's last Tuesday evening. The organization of a debating so-ciety has been contemplated by the literary talent of this place for some time past but on account of the Ad ventcamn meeting action in the matter h'as been postponed.

Mr. and Mrs. Andrew Maxfield's oldest child died lsst Sunday morn ing of diphtheria. We hope that the people of Marvin have had experi ence sufficiently sad to do all in their power to prevent the spreading of this terrible disease. I hero were so many teams town Saturday that it presented the appearance of a fourth of July occa sion.

Henry Brown is repairing his barn this week, making it a more substan tial structure than it previously was W. F. Solman has added to the appearance of Marvin by a magnificent two story, nine cornered chicken coop and will hereafter be found extensively engaged in the poultry business N. W. Gibbs had a field of fall wheat that turned out 38 bushels per acre, yet after all these dem onstrations ol the prolific nature of Kansas soil some men have the "gall" to mutter that you can't raise anything in Kansas.

Small grain has turned off bounti fully and from the present prospects the corn crop will be equally as good, which will make the farmers smi'e "when the leaves begin to turn." Foot ball has been instituted again as an amusement and blessed is he that kicketh and hitteth thereof; for that kicketh and hitteth not will surely hoiizoiTtalize his perpehdicular. G0CDE GLEANINGS. Hark! did I hear some one sav Kansas was a dry country. We can fully appreciate the sen timent of the negro melody, dem watermelons." I believe town folks do like to come out in the countrj once in a while to get a square, meal. Sprague Sundayed at Frank Finley's again yesterday.

Mrs. Al. Jiose visited at Lon Bar rett's on her way to norton county to visit her mother she comes from Nebraska and tried very bard to make us believe that Nebraska beat Kansas, but she did not succeed. Mr. and Mrs.

Camp Sundayed at D. Averill's. Thej" returned to Alma this morning. Frank Finley and Lon Barrett went to your town this morning. Mrs.

Mae Finley has accepted a position as superintendent of tbe mil linery depaitment of Rhamy's store at Raysville. She leaves the first of September for that place. Send somebody out this way who wants to buy a good stock farm. Mrs. Kenady, wife of Rev.

Kenady died at her residence Friday at eleven o'clock. She left seven children to mourn her loss four girls and three boys." She was a kind mother, a loving wife and loved and respected by all who knew her and her death is sadly regretted hv all. The bereaved family has the sympathies of friends and neighbors. Father Goode preached the funeral sermon. I see a wee, sma communication in the last Times signed Jack Creek which gives me the privilege of furnishing a tooth brush for Povser at my own expense.

Now, I think the most suitable brush would be a mule brush as what would be suitable for a mule would surely do for its cousin. There will be prayer meeting at Father Goode next Wednesday We will give you a rest until next week. Esmeralda. B. R.

Forney will only make a short visit aud then return to continue his work as General agent of ihe Southwestern mutual benefit assocaiion. Hon. James Laird, of Hastings has received the republican permission to be his own succossor as Congressman.

That's right. Now elect him His only fault lies in voting for the Porter bill and it is plain he thought he was in the right. It shows that when he thinks he is right he goes ahead and that's the rtght kind ot a man. when wneat is largely grown rye is one of Ihe worst kind ot weeds thatcau get in land. It is Aery difficult to separate tht grains so that some rye will not be sswn each year.

But as re runs up into head several days earlier than wheat it is a comparatively easy matter to go through the grain, and wilh a corn kni.e cut out the rye. If cut just before the wheat heads out ihe rye will not sprout soon enough to ma-lure any seed. Not much, that we have heard has been said yet in regard to our Itrepresenta'ive-A cai didate is to be nominated and elect ed this fall, who is going to be the republican nominee? TV. H. McBridc.who was nominated ai.d elected last fall to fill vacancy is as good a man, it seems to us, as coald be fouud.

If he desires or will accept it again we would say let it be given him. He is worthy and competent and would be credible representative. We have heard of one candidate who has made no announcement in any of the county papers who gave as his reason lor not doing so "That he could not announce in all and if he announced in some and i.ot in all, those he did not favor would be opposed to him. There is a policy man lor you and his opinion of the publishers of the county is drawn from a photograph ot himself Republican. We don't Know who he is but we pity him for his poverty if he can't pay lor ati and further for the breadth of his vitws of men.

Gatu Mr. Nast's cartoon of Blaine drinking from a well bucket of water only, with a bag at his feet labeled "twenty years a teetotaler," may 11 make the Prohibition people st. aud reflect at the uuscrupulaus means bein used to excite the liquor interest against a man who has made temperance tnc companion of his life. For preserving his brain, nerves, habits and example he is held up to scorn by a man who would have mocked Christ going 13 his crucifixion. There were car-looners in those days, too, say ing: "If thou be the true Son come down from that cross." More unscrupulous rascality an American journal long dependent on the moral aud religious classes never undertook in its despairing attempt to use drunkenness and drunkards as weapons to destroy a statesman.

Mr. Blaine must be beaten because he is not a saloon-haunter. One among the very best papers in the west is the St. Joseph Herald. It always gives the latest and most interesting news and its editorials have an honest and brave rit-g.

Of course such a paper would support no tickt but that headed by the prince of great, good and true men Blaine, and his not one whit less great and noble companion Logan. In its prospectus the Herald says: "The. Herald believes in the continued ascendency of th-? republican party; believes that it is for the national good that it should be continued and it will use its infiuence to help ac complish that end." But you ought to subscribe and read it all. Try it one month any wpy, it will require but 75 cents Weekly one dollar and a half per year. Kirwin Republican: In another place in this puper will he found the announcement of W.

D. Lane for County Superintendent of Public Institction. He is an old resident of this township, and lias been for many years engaged in teaching in this county and Smith, and is well known in this vicinity4 where he has a host of friends who have been made such by his fine morn! and social qualities. His qualifications for the position he seeks are good, ami those who are acquainted with him need no s-susance that he would fill the office in the. best manner, for he would give the office his undiveded attention, and with his determination to please, coupled with hts love for and zeal in his chosen profession he would make a model Superintendent.

We hope to record the fact of his nomination and election, for he is deserving young man who is worthy of success ami the people do a good work wticn ihey honor such. fees ri)" E. DAVIS CO. LAND AGEKTS, PHILLIPSBURG, KS. Will buy and sell improved and unimproved lands on commission.
