He is an excellent judge, and as lone as he was willine to do ine worn iney couia see no good reason for taking Crawford county out of his district. He will be remembered for his many good qualities 01 neaa ana neart. ; The Kansas Farmer, an Alliance mugwump journal says : Judge Chandler is a working man and a competent officer. He wastes no time. He conuueta ine Dusmess 01 tne court as a mas ter mechanic does a machine shop ; every thing is in order and performing the work assigned to it. Twenty-five men like Judge Chandler could do all the business in the district courts of Kansas, and do it well. confidently expect that you will revoke the order."

Congressman Perkins says : "We expect that the order suspending Vilas' outrage will be issued within a day or two.

The fast train mail service between Chicago and Kansas City, has been restored. beef combine. Mr. Ziegler is chair man of the House committee from this State, and with his experience aa a legislator, will be a valuable member of the committee. The proprietors of the Delmon ico and of the National Hotels, at Leavenworth, have both been sen tenced to jail for 90 days each and find $300 each and costs. They imagined themselves bigger than the prohibitory law, and that the new attorney would not prosecute 6uch high toned and elegant gen tlemen as they were. But they were fooled and will go behind the bars in diFffrace like any other criminals. Mr. Calhoun's family have the mumps. Mrs. Bates, of Western Kansas, is here visiting her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Michael Arthur Daney, of Parsons, was visiting Mrs. Hart's boys last week. Lee Hart left for Kansas City last week to stand an examination, aa he had applied for a position in the mail service. Mr. Potter has moved on his farm, and will teach the spring term of school at Fair View. . . Farmers are busy sowing oats. There will be a large breadth sown this spring. Mr. and Mrs. Helt are having chills. James Taylor has commenced assessing Drum Creek. ' G. M. Elmore thought he detected signs of hydrophobia in his dog the other day, so he employed a passing tramp to give bira a dose i cold lead. John Rider has rented the Cruse farm, and is keeping bachelor hall. Perry Hammer will pull the ribbons over the donkeys whilst your item grabber is at tending court.1 Mrs. Hummel's health is very poor, being confined to her bed a good deal of the time. The township is having the Blackford ditch filled. Died, March 8tb, Adda V. Taylor, age eight years and eleven months. We notice several of the item grabbers trying to locate Tom Anderson at Edna. It is all a mistake. Tom is snugly housed in Cherryvale, and we would not be much surprised if he wasn't aspiring to be the next mayor of the future great. . We noticed the pleasant countenance of Lnm Calhoun, of West Cherry, last Sunday in this neck of the woods. ; ' James Taylor's little ones have the whooping congh. Just as we were leaving for Independence we learn that Henry Parret died last Mon- dav and was buried by the G. A. TL of Cherryvale, of which he was a member. Sheriff's Sale.
