A nice Hanging lamps at R. D. Webster Notaing nicer present: 18-tf: Mr. Pheny, who lives on Cherry creek, reports a loss of eleven head of cattle. Same old story--from letting them run in the stalk field.

Farmers should certainly take warning from this. Some one blundered in transmitting or copying a telegram which called J. P. Ford to Princeton last week. It stated that bis mother was dead, but when he arrived there, he found it was his father who had died.

There was quite a speck of war between two of our prominent citizens last Tuesday. It occurred in the pro- a bate judge's office, but prompt interference of friends prevented serious outbreak. Keep cool. gentlemen. Remember! The Prohibition Club will meet next Tuesday evening.

Everybody in- a vited, and the members are especially requested to be present, as business of importance is to be transacted. W. S. SHIPPEY, Sec. A herd of eleven thoroughbred Hereford cattle, raised in this county, were purchased this week by H.

W. Swain, who owns a fine stock farm near Burlington, la. The purchaser shipped them on Wednesday for Burlington, by the Santa Democrat. Mr. Elliot, who lives south of town, brought in almost a wagon load of hides Tuesday.

He turned his cattle into the "stalk field," and as a result lost twelve head in one day. He told us that everyone who let the cattle run in the fields were meeting with losses. Geb. Wille, who has been living in Kiowa county since last spring, is quite sick. Mrs.

Wille cane back here 8- few weeks since, by rail, and George was expecting to follow soon to spend the winter. She returned home this week to attend him. Col. J. B.

Stockton and Miss Lettie Hall were united in marriage at Eureka, last Monday, by the probate judge of Greenwood county. They came back here and remained until Thursday morning, when they left for Arkansas City, where the colonel will engage in business. Attention, Sons of Veterans! Every member of Geo. D. Carpenter camp should be present at the next regular meeting.

Saturday evening, Dec. 18th. Important business demands attention. A. F.

Captain. The people along the line of the Mo. Pacific between this city aid Independence are very anxious to know when mail service will be put on that road. The Benedict Echo thinks that the mail service is very poor when it takes a newspaper four days to come eight miles, with a railroad in tion betweell the two points. Jim Vaughn desires us to state that a representative of the Chicago jewelry house of whom he buys his goods will be here to-morrow.

(Saturday 18,) and anyone desising to purchase a fine Christmas present should come around and look at his goods. They can get anything they want. He carries the goods with him and you will get what you buy. Railroad Assessment: In respouse to a request from Perry towhship we would state that the assessed valuation of the St. Louis, Ft.

Scott Wichita railroad in this sounty is $6,494.47 per mile, and of the K. T. is $4,977.14 per mile. The V. V.

I. W. was not completed i in time for the last assessment. The roof of the naw court house is ready for the slate, and high above it vaults the frame work of the clock tower, upon which the carpenters are now at work. When completed the building will look more beautiful, more grand and imposing than is indicated by the pictures of it which many thought were -Fredonia Democrat.

We have not space to notice any distinctive features of the entertaintainments, but will say that both evenings were highly enjoyed by those present. All members of the pany performed their parts with credit to themselves and pleasure to the audience. Matie Williams, the star of the combination, is a brilliant actress, but we think where all carried their parts so well it would be tice to give precedence to any particuJar member: Fine Work. We noticed a fine, well finished buggy, all setup ready for business in W.

H. Kaltenbach's store, which led us to enquire if he was running a livery business in connection with his mammoth dry goods and clothing establishment, but he replied that in order to reduce his large Stock of goods he was going to give that buggy to his chstomers. Every cash etistomer will get one chance at the buggy with every dollar's worth of goods bought. The drawing to take place April 1, 1887. Low prices will continue to be the rule.

Sumner Holcomb, who has been in Butler, for some time, to answer charge of murder, returned home last week. The jury was only fifteen minutes and returned a verdict of not guilty. He was met at the train by many of his friends here, who welcomed him home. Sumner is a young man of promise and we note with pleasure the fact that his character was vindicated by the law and a jury of his peers. The trouble out of which this charge originated took place some time ago, and the fact that Sumner has been on bail, and with the consent of his bondsmen left Missouri and came to Kansas, with nothing to bind him to return but his honor as a man, proves that his friends in Missouri had great confidence in his integrity.

-Toronto Topic. Holcomb Acquitted. The jury in the case of the State of Missouri against Sumner C. Holcomb, wherein Holcomb was being tried for his life for the killing of night watchman Aleshire, returned a verdict, Friday evening, of acquittal, after being out only a short time. It will he remembered that Holcomb shot and killed Aleshire on the night of March, 1888, while resisting the two night watchmen, Kelley and Aleshire, who were attempting to disarm him.

Holcomb was indicted by the grand jury for murder, and at the November term of the Bates circuit court was tried, convicted and sentenced to twenty years in the penitentiary. The case was taken to the supreme court and remanded back for a new heariug on the ground, in substance, that the nightwatch had no authority to arrest and search him without a warrant, while he was quietly walking the streets, making no disturbance. and that if said search was attempted it was in the nature of an assault, and defendant had a right to repel force with force, even to the taking of life.
