Harvbv Spehrv. Mr. Hester, of the Arm of Hester Brothers, says his wife has used the Etna cooking stove for the past three years. She likes It much aud would not exchange it for any other. Mrs.

Kev, Peck says; I don't see how a cooking stove could be much better than tho Etna; it bakes quick, is easily heated, has a good draft, and I am well pleased with it. Thacher says; Mrs. Thachor is well pleased with it; we nave used It for the past four years with much satisfaction. It does work well and requires but. little fuel; don't see how a cooking stove could be made that would do better work or give batter satisfaction than the Etna.

Mr. McKittriek, who lives on Kentucky street, near tho Catholic church says: The Etna1 is the best cooking stove that has ever been in my house. There may be better cooking stoves than the Etna, but I won't believe it till I see it. Mrs. Monroe, wife of the popular hackman, says tho Etna cannot be beat.

I don't know what I could do without It, for Mr. Monroe is often engaged to be at a given place at a certain time, and be makes It point to always be on hand, and 1 must have a stove on which I can got meals at a few minutes notice the Etna fills that bill completely.

Mrs. Holllster eays it is a good one and Is well satisfied. Prof. Snow, of the State University, sayB; It is all right, we like it much. I did not think there wasso much difference in stoves.

'R ,,1, 1 11- Will Byers, Nell Tloadlcy, Harry Rush Kick Him Out Our attention was called on Monday, The ever increasing popularity the Chicago Alton railroad is shown by its latest announcement, that two sleeping cars will hereafter be run every day in the week, between Kansas City and Cihicago, on trains leaving Kansas City in the evening. The great secret of the phenomenal success of the Chicago Alton company in attracting such a large share of the travel to its lineSj is always loads, never follows its competitors in the introduction of any invention that will add anything to the comfort of the traveler.

This company claims the proud record of having first brought into use the three leading luxuries of modern railroad travel, namely, Pullman Sleeping ears, Dining cars and Reclining Chair cars. It is still the only lino running two Palace Reclining Chair cars, free of extra charge, in both morning and night trains between Kansas City and Chicago, Kansas City and St. Louis and St. Louis and Chicago, and the only line running two Pullman Palace Sleeping cars in its trains between Kansas City and Chicago. With such a record, and such ample and palatial accommodations, it is no wonder that the Chicago Alton is tlie favorite with the traveling public.

John A. Kelley, one of our most prosperous fanners in Kanwuka township, has commenced the culture of German carp. He last June built a pond on his farm by simply throwing up an embankment in a ravine which runs through his farm. He got his spawn from the fish commissioner and celebrated Thanksgiving day by putting theui in his pond. Mr.

Kelley has started a movement that would be both a profit and pleasure to many Kansas farmers if they would only do it. The spawn can be obtained from the government at almost no cost at all, and on nine out of ten farms in this section of the state a pond to hold them could be made in one day with a man and team. We hope Mr. Kelley's example will be followed. We need mor farmers like Mr, Kelley.

Most of our readers have probably heard of the excitement at Kansas City over the slaughtering of diseased beef. Knowing that Mr. W. T. Faxon shipped considerable meat from Kansas City a Herald reporter called on him to learn if there was any danger of any of the diseased meat coming here.

Mr. Faxon very promptly answered no. Mr. Faxon then went on to say that none of the great packers could afford to kill any but the best of cattle. A suspicion of such a thing would travel from Maine to California and be almost certain ruin All meat shipped to this city conies from 'these great packing houses.

The diseased meat is in small, second-class local markets. Said Mr. Faxon "I will tell you how they operate. For instance a car load of cattle is shipped to Kansas City, on the road perhaps ono breaks bis leg or shows signs of weakness. That steer is culled out and sold to these irresponsible butchers for what it will bring.

They kill them at once and retail the meat out The packer will not take an animal of that kind at any price."
