She came to Kansas with her parents in January 1907 and was stricken with pneumonia Friday August 28. Everything that loving hands and medical skill eoold do was administered, but of no avail. God had claimed her for his own and had called her home. She died September 1, at the age of 4 years, lacking one day. Irene, as she was better known, was a very loving child with a kind and sweet disposition and was loved by all who knew her. She was the only daughter of Mr and Mrs Rheuben Sellers and has three brothers, Mel-vin, Claude and Wayne, to whom the entire community extends their heartfelt sympathy in their bereavement. We desire to thank the kind neighbors and friends for the assistance given us during the sickness and death of our litUe girl. Mr. and Mrs. Rheuben Sellers and Family. WILL BE A WEEKLY PAPER.

The following letter was clipped from the Ida County Pioneer, published st Ida Grove, Iowa: William Pilcher, the old time Ida county ' citizen who now lives at Burlington, Kans., writes The Pioneer a letter that will be read with interest by all our readers. He says it has only been a fair year in the sunflower state and that crops are not what they might be. He writes: Burlington, Kas., August 25, Editor Pioneer: I have been planning for some time to write and let my old friends know that I am still in the land of the living. As the spring was very wet here our crops are not as good as they might be. It was so very wet and then turned off so very dry that our corn fields are a little spotted. There are some very good fields of corn and there are some that are poor. Our wheat yielded from 7 to 27 bushels to the acre. Oats are of a good quality but a light crop Prai rie hav is extra good, alfalfa and i clover were both fine and we cut three crops of the former. We also expect to make a fourth cutting of alfalfa. Some cut the fourth crop and some pasture it. I always pasture mine. "We will have a good seed crop of clover on the early cutting and I will liave some fine clover seed for my Ida county friends this fall if they want it. Peaches, apples and all small iruit were good but dry weather damaged them to some extent. ' We are having an Iowa picnic here Thursday, August 27, and I expect to meet all or most all of the Iowa people in this county that day "Will say to my fishermen friends in Ida that. if they want to catch fish they should come to Burlington.
