Seatt Sale now on at Mundis' Drug Store The Moran Herald says: At the first day of ths Moran Asrj- cultural fair In September, Governor- .elect Stubbs was the principal apeal<- er of the' day. After the speaUng was finished, M. H. Gallon presented to Mr. Stobbs a subject which he wished he would consider in the event of his election, of possible legislation of interest to farm owners as to taxation. The subject to which the governor's attention was called is of taxation of a full quarter or a half section of land or whatever quantity he may have lying along a public highway. The land owner is assessed and .taxed on the full number of acres the tract Is supposed to contain when as a matter offset he has that much, less amount taken out by the road. Mr. Stubbs asked Mr. Gollon that after election and If he was elected to call his attention to the matter again: and he would give It due consideration in preparing his message for the legislature. The matter was brought before DON'T BE BALD. Nearly Aayone May Secure a Splendid Growth of Hair. You can easily find out for yourself if your hair needs nourishment, if it is .thinning out, getting dry, harsh and brittle, or splitting at the end. You simply have to pull a hair from the ttip of your head and closely examine its roots. If the bulb is plump and rosy. It is all right—if it is white and ahrunken, your hair is diseased and needs nourishment. We-have a remedy for hair troubles that cannot be surpassed. It has a record of growing hair and curing baldness In 93 out of every 100 cases where used acording to directions for 'a reasonable length of time. It will even grow hair Qn bald heads.

West Side Square. the Farmers' Institute held here last month and acted upon. A committee was ^pointed to prepare a petition toj the governor, which has been done,' the committee furnishing the Herald with a copy for publication which is as follows: Moran. Kaa., Dec. 8. 1908. W. R. Stubbs, Governor-elect, I.Awrence, Kansas. Resjiected Sir:— At a meeting held by the Farmers' Institute at Moran on November 1617. 1908. the undersigned committee was appointed to petition you to embody in your inaugural message to the legislature recommending the enactment of law exempting from taxation, so much of the ground as is occupied and used for the road purposes. We do not ask this as special legislation but to do Justice and put farm property on an equality with city assessment. By Investigating the assessment you will find that the farm land is assessed to the middle of the road of which the owners have no control more than to keep same in repair for which he or they pay a special tax. but pay state, state school and county taxes on same, as on propertir they actually possess. On further Investigation of assess, ment you will find that the "City Brother" on his property pays taxea on actual property he or they may own and to this will call your attention to the city assessment. As the records will show you will find that the city property. is assessed so many feet front and so m^ny feet deep, but no street, alley or sidewalk is assessed to any such property. We are of the ojinlon that the assessment is not niade on equality but is also ilegal. We respectfully refer you to Sec. 8. U. S. Constitution p. 23. and Sec. 17. Kansas Constitution, p. 58 which forbid Class Liisgts- latlon. Therefore, we, the committee reprtf- senting the Allen County Farmers' In- stitnte, respectfully but earnestly beg of you to see to It that Justice be done. Re.spectfully yours. JOHN ABER, C. F.

Dec. 14.—^After twelve .veara of service as head of the department. James .Wilson.^ secretary of agriculture, in his twelfth annual report to the president, issued today, renders a comprehensive account of his stewardship. Concerning the farm production of 1908, he says that the farmer has created wealth by the billions. Production has been above the average of recent years with few exceptions. The farm value of all farm products of 1908 reaches the most extraordinary total in the nation's history—$7.778.000 000. four times the value of the products of the mines. Including mineral oils and precious metals. The gain in value of farm products in 1908 over 1907 is $290,000,000 and would have been much larger had not the prices of cotton and hay been low. The value of products in 1899. the cen BUS year, being taken at 100. the value for 1908 stands at 165. During the last ten years the wealth production on the farms of this country has exceeded the fabulous sum of |60.000.000.UOO. THEY HAVENT ENOIMJH MONEY.

In the •Johannesburg, Dec. 14.—General Botha has presented to the Transvaal museum the Boer flag which waved above the government buildings at Pretoria until the capital was occupied by Lord Roberts. It appears that when the British entered the town the flap was lowered by an official of the Republic. C. P. Hattlngh, who entrusted It to Mrs. I. Ifaarshoff. knowing that this lady would do* everything possible to prevent it from falling into the hands of the English. For more than a year Mrs. Haar- shoff carried the "Vlerkleur" on her person, sewn to the inside of her skirt A ?aer that she concealed the flag In a mattrciis. where It remained until th» conclusion of peace, when she considered that General Botha had the l>e»t claim to the standard and gavp If to him. K. r. WON BASKET BALL fiAME. Beat Raker Team Satnrday In Contest at Lairreare. The nmeral services of the late Nel eon K. Acers were conducted from the family home 24 West Park avenue at 2:30 o'clock yesterday afternoon. Dr. J. D. Kriimm of Ottawa, conducted the services according to the beautiful code of the Kpiscopal church. At the cemetery the local lodge of I. O. O. P. took charge and the grave services were held according to the ritual of that order. The Interment was made In the family lot In the old lola cemetery. One of the largest crowds of friends which ever attended a funeral service In this city gathered at the Acers home yesterday afternoon to pay their last respects tp an honored citizen. The I. O. O. P. lodge attended In a body. f Nelson F. Acers. although a staunch supporter of Democratic principles and an acknowledged leader In his own party, was accorded the friendship of the whole community regardless of political faith. He was one of the few politicians who have followed the game for the past quarter of a century and left behind a record of which any man might well be proud. It would be unfair to state that Mr. Acers, always a political leader, had no enemies, but even his enemies admired him for the open and straightforward manner in which he conducted his political fights. Returning from the grave services the members of the 1. O. O. K. lodge met and adopted the following resolutions of condolence: Wliereas, Death has again Invaded our ranks and removed from our midst one of our aged members, and, WTiereas, We are thereby again forcibly remlnde<l of the uncertainty of this fleeting life and the certainty of death, and admonished that we too. must go hence to return no more; Therefore, be it Resolved.

P. has lost one of Its members, with whom, for over a qnarter of a century, it has been our privilege and delight to associate In lodge work remembering that in the long, long ago, when as a lodge, we were a little group struggling for existence, how nobly he came to the reseue. putting his .shoulder to the wheel and helping to maintain nn existence, .ind we can not fail to recognize his then valuable services to this lodge as an earnest worker .ind as a presiding officer; and later, his very great assistance In the erection of our beautiful lodge hall. Resolved. That by his genial and friendly disposition, ulwnys ready with a word of cherr for the heavy laden and distressed, and a gcneroui' hand, ever oi>en to help the needy; thus truly has he acted the good Samaritan and faithfully exen>plified the tenets of our behoved order, and endeared himself, by hallowed memories, to his Brothers, his family, his friends and his acquaintances, and wd now lovingly write his virtues upon the pages of our meiiiory. "Sleep on Brother. Peaceful be they slumber." Resolved, That as a further mark of reapect for our departed Brother, that his Past Grand collar and the Lodge charter be draped in mourning for the period of sixty days, and that a copy of these Preambles and Reto- Intlona be given to the dally paiiers Araertean Battleships Hare Aurhored at Colombo—Official Kecep. tioB Today.

A NEW MANAGER. .STATE POWDER LAW 0. K. in Companies Must Sell Explosive Smaller Packages. Topeka. Dec. 14.—^The law requiring coal operators to sell black powder In packages of twelve and one-half pounds each to miners is held constitutional and not a violation of interstate commerce by the Kansas supreme court. In order to test the law I. H. Williams, superintendent of the Central Coal and Coke company's mines in Crawford county, sold powder to miners in tweuty-five-pound liackages. He was arrested and fined $50 for the violation of the law passed in 1907. The case was at once appealed to the supreme court on the ground that the restriction on the size of the package was in violation of the bill of rights of the state constitution. It was also contended that powder was made in the eastern 'states and shipped to Kansas in twenty-five pound packages and that any attempt to regulate the size of theae packages would be a violation of the inter- stale commerce law. The supreme court holds 'that it was a regulation for the protection of the miners that the twelve and one-half pound package was required by the state law and Uiat the state had ample authority to make these regulations.
