ANNOUNCEMENTS. CITY NEWS. Vegetation looks a month older since the late rain and the past two days of sunshine. Yesterday and to-day have been all that could be desired in the way of pleasant weather. There were quite a numberfrom this city and part of Kansas who attended the big Christian Endeavor meeting at Kansas City. Word from there is to the effect that it was one of the largest gatherings of the kind ever held in the west. Owing to rush of trade yesterday Mr, Carroll Briscoe and his large force of help were completely worn out und Mr. Briscoe was complelled to close his restaurant at 10 o'clock last evening, This is the first time this has happened since Mr. Briscoo has been in business, Among the many neat and tastily decorated places of business on Main street, there was no one which showed up to a better advantage yesterday, than did the City Ice Cream parlor, at No, 4 South Main street, up stairs. This parlor will be open on Saturday night and Sunday.. You ni -e invited to call. Oasper Edwards, of Grove township, was in the city to-dny, and paid this of- "ce a pleasant call. In another column of this issue of the NEWB will bo found the announcement of bis eandi- dancy for the position of county superintendent of public instruction, a position which Mr. Edwards is peculiarly qualified to fill. He has won enviable distinction as one of Reno county's leading educators, having especially prepared himself for the work by attending the Kansas State Normal, is a thorough gentleman, and the Republicans of Reno county will have a good candidate if they place him on their ticket. • C»r<[ or ThankH. The ontertainmeutcommittee desires j to express their thanks to our citizens who so generously opened their houses for the entertainment of the guests of the city at the late convention. While but a small portion of the rooms proffered were actually used, yet all equally deserve our thanks. We could have taken cure of at least five hundred more. H. W. Gl.EA80N, L. F. CAIN, O. E.

Ethel Hartford, daughter of Henry Hartford of Medora, guessed the exact number of pins in the cushion in the window of' Goldberg's clothing house. The number was 3,703. The guesses ranged all the way from 250 to «,000,000. II. D. Winslow and T. A. Llewellyn acted as judgeB. Miss Hartford received the prize, "Maud S," the prettiest burro in the county. An Expert Hteiioprnglier.

"Some er the boys was just gittin interested in the game, nn they kiii ^ajLaxed .mo ter set in. I Bot in, an things went along sort er quiet like till Bob Simplrins he opened up a jacker an they all come in er whoopin. I had as pnrty a busted flr,sh ter draw ter as ever you see, an, thinks I, I'll raise him buck on-the openin. Ho I riz him back an they all stood, game as yer please. When it come ter the draw Bob he lowed he didn't want any, an I took one pape. My busted flush was the ten, jock, queen, king er spades, an HI be darned if I didn 't draw the ace o'that ere identical suit. I didn 't stop ter seo no more. 1 had the only hand in the deck what couldn 't be beat, an I jest closed 'em up on the table an got ready ter have some fun, "An the fun was thar, too, an don't yon make no mistake. The other fellers all went out mighty qnick when they see me an Bob was in it f er blood, an we jest had it back : an forth like two tomcats hung over a clothes line. When every gol darned cent we could raise was in the pot Bob 'lowed he'd call. Soz he: See here, Jim, I got yer beat, but yer ain 't got no more money, an ye may as well show the boys what yer so doggone proud on.' "Sez I: 'Bob Simpkins, whatever ye've got, the swag is mine. Ye can 't down a straight flush clean up at the top, an no other man can 't do it neither.' Well, strangor, Bob, he had four eights, nn I tell ye he looked mighty sick. I laid down my kyards an got a good grip on the stakes, when, by jinks, if they didn't raise a yell fit ter hist one er them 'ere motor care clean off the track! I kinder lifted ray fingers an axed what they was er makin sech a dad blaisted rumpus about." Ho paused, gulped down a sob and continued: "Stranger, that ere flush was Btill busted. Tho queen was nuthin but tho doggoned eight o' clubs I thought Td discarded. * That 'ere queen had just slipped through my fingers like the wimmen allers does, an I" A heartrending sigh finished the sentence, and for a few minutes tho silence spoke louder than tho still, small voice of a new infant in the night. He sadly took up the narrative once more, and said: "The boys they wouldn't believe I'd discarded wrong. They thought it war a put up job, just like I'd be gol darned fool enough to lay my hand down for them ter look at if I knew 'twornt all rightl An I had ter come otit o' there mighty qnick, an consekent- ly ain't hud no chance ter get even. An I maintain it ain 't right ter treat a feller like that 'ero when he ain't done nothin wrong, neither. "My good fellow," said the- kind old gentleman, "you have my sympathy, but this seems to mo to be a fitting op portunity to point out to you the evils of gam" "Stranger," interrupted the other, "don't go no further. I appreciate yer kindness an all that, but thar ain't only oue thing yer kin do fer me. If you 'll take an kick me from here over to that 'ere gate yonder an back again you'll do poor sufferin creeter a heap er good. There ain't nothin else yer kin do; nuth­ in at all." "But my good fellow," remonstrated the other, "I" 'Thar's nuthin else, stranger, nutliiu else. I ain 't got no further use fer auy- thin elso but that." His head sank forward again on his cheBt and despair seemed to cast a melancholy tingo on the very air that surrounded him. Realizing that such sorrow was too deep to be alleviated by any human sympathy, the clerical gentleman sighed and passed on.—Now York World. fk« Future Held Nothing llrigbt ot Promising for Thit* Man. He was occupying a bench on tho common, his head resting an his bunds, a picture of dospair. The blustering winds of March swept across his weather beaten countenance and froze the tears as they coursed down his furrowed cheeks. A kindly old gentleman in clerical garb passing by paused. His heart was touched by the sad eight, and be laid a sympathetic hand upon the poor fellow's shoulder. "What is the matter, my friend?" h« Baid kindly, "1 fear you are not well. There seems to be a hectio flush" "Don't say that'ere, stTanger," said the object of the good man's sympathy, Btretcliing forth hia hand as if in protest "Don't twit a poor devil on his misfortunes. 'Tworn't exactly a hectic flush, though, neither, 'thout that's a new name I haven't heard on; and p'raps yon don't mean bod arter all." The clerical gontlesran hastened to deny any intention of raking up past sorrows and urged him to explain. TOMBSTONE POETRY. Some Specimen!. That Are Old, bat Always Good. The tombstone poet belonged to a time that is past. He lies in his own grave now and ho would find bis occupation gone if ho could return to life. Ht would ho surprised and saddened by tlx fact that an advanced stago of civilization has made his poetry unpopular, and that his rhymes touch tho risibles instead of the hearts of those who read them now. The modern man or woman does not weep ovor an epitaph like this, said to be on n tombstone in an old Connecticut cemetery: Here lies the body of Jane Brent; Sho kirkcj up Her heels anil away she went. The following epitaph is of both mod ern and ancient origin, the last two line. 1 ; having beou added by some unfeeling wag: Mnry Ana lies here to rest, . With her head on Abraham 's breast. Which was all right and proper 'enough until the wag added: ItV very uloe for Mary Ann, But rather tough on Abraham. In an old cemetery in Spencer, Mas:. may bo found this: Here tics the mother of children seven. Thrto on earth and four lu heaven: Those who diod desiring rather To to with mother than to live with fatht-i And while tho following is not poeti cal in its construction, it tells tho whol<- truth with a touching simplicity of detail: ANN E., Wlfoof Jorcmlah Walters, died November 1 (1. 1808, aged 03 years, fi months. Sho was a true and faithful wire to each of the following persons:' Enoch Francis, John Shorinau,. William Kcassen, J. Walters. The round faced, puffed cheeked cherubs, with their expressions of per feet rapture, do not appear on the modern tombstono, but they abound in all old New England cemeteries, and itti queer examples of what was onci- thought beautiful and appropriate foi tombstone ornamentation. The writer remembers Boeing on one of these old tombstones a carving of a chrysalis just below that of the chernb. Below thi- chrysalis were the words, "Keturah m she WUB ," while below that of the grinning, round faced cherub, with its head set flat on its shoulders, were the words "Keturah as sho is."—Detroit Free-Prcs* Mr. I.
