Smith will move from Mat. Higgins' place on the Island to the J. P. Blevins 80-acre farm miles east of town.

The Fredonia school boys take a lively interest in the situation of af fairs as the same apply to this conn try and Spain. They would like to see Spain roundly licked.

Blakeslee, were united in marriage Wednesday evening, the 23d, at the home of the bride's parents in Neodesha, Rev. M. D. Smith, pastor of the Presbyterian church at that town, solemnizing the nuptials. The relatives of the two families especially interested, a few couples of married friends, also a limited number of young friends of the couple, comprised the guests and witnesses of the auspicious event. The Blakeslee home was duly illumined and tastefully adorned for the occasion, and the repast which shortly followed the wedding ceremony was not lacking in any feature. The new couple went to Mo. Pacific depot at 11:30 p. m., being accompanied to the station by all the younger people of the wedding party, and departed for Kansas City, intending to be gone a few days. Upon their return they will move into a cozy cottage, furnished and ready for them. Mr. and Mrs. Hopkins are strictly a Wilson-co. pair. He was born on Fall river, just below the Oxbow bend, in 1872, and she in Neodesha city in 1876. They are believed to be fortunately mated, and they seemed happy but earnestly sincere when responding to the solemn unifying questions. Mr. Hopkins is an unassuming but resolute and self-reliant man, whose merit is in performing, being faithful to duty and honest in his dealings; he will be true and devoted to her whom he has won. The bride, graceful of figure, fair in feature, modest but self-possessed in demeanor, comely, genteel, pure and womanly, will prove a sensible, loyal and affectionate wife. They have the genuine good wishes of all their friends. The Republican county committee which will meet in Fredonia tomorrow will be freed from one feature that has attended its meetings for some years past. It won't be beset and importuned by a lot of candidates for county offices to order the holding of the primary election on two or three weeks' notice and six months before the regular county election. The Santa Fe-Frisco depot in Fredo nia, which was burned down in November, fully three months ago, has not yet been rebuilt, nor has the depot at Neodesha, which was destroyed at an earlier date, been restored. Railroad corporations are slow to act, probably because of unwieldliness. The public knows they are hard to handle. P. P. Belt is having a Fort Scott flag stone walk laid on the south side of his lots on Jackson-st. the distance of 170 feet, W. A. Swift superintending the work. This walk being on the way to the railroad depots, the improvement will be very generally and practically appreciated.

Miss Gertrude Giles visited the school this week. Mother nature no doubt considers herself flattered by the seniors' drawings. The high school's flag was raised on the anniversary of Washington's birth. Prof. Dyche's proposed visit to Fredonia has been indefinitely postponed. Fishing was the bait which induced a large number of the high school pupils to take a "lay off" Wednesday afternoon. We wonder did it pay. The researches of the classics class revealed the fact that the term "bachelor" is derived from a word meaning "stick." How extremely applicable! -Yesterday morning while the tru ants were receiving a private lecture in the classroom those who did not "indulge" celebrated by a protracted song service. While discussing "ways and means" for obtaining some new books for the school one pupil asked the teacher if he "couldn't run his face" again for them. "Variety is the spice of life," therefore the middles think that they deserve a change of scene, as well as the other classes, and decidedly object to being cheated out of the classroom. By some supernatural (?) agency the high school motto, "Better wear out than rust out," which has adorned the wall for years, has been changed to "Better tear out than bust out." This seems to be the prevailing sentiment. What is the matter with that teacher's voice? One girl says she can't study because he talks so loudly, and another pupil, with vivid descrip tive powers, said be talked in a "smiling tone." How is the poor fellow to strike a happy medium? The 4th quarterly meeting of the Fredonia M. E. church will beheld Saturday night and Sunday, February 26 and 27.

The prices paid were 89c and 90c. L. Rynerman, -of Little Rock, Ark., has been in this vicinity the past week buying mules and horses.

Farmers guess there will be an early spring. John Hubbell's new porch has be gun to loom. Methodist preachers will soon go to Conference. -Some Fredonia hearts are always having a picnic. You will get your April fool on Friday this year. The Kate and Duplicate whist clubs have collapsed. The Fredonia P. O. is closed from 4 to 5 p. m. on Sundays. And what will ice-cream tax us during the heated spell? So many people spill their coffee at the chicken pie meals. This sort o' climate is liable to raise the johnny-jump-ups. Boys, if you want to make your girl stick to you, feed her taffy. Drummers have only two 'bus lines to contend with here now. Jess Defever will till his pap's soil east of town the coming season. "The powder-puff gets on to nearly all the latest feminine wrinkles." A family in this town ought to "let a little sunshine in" at times. No one will leave Fredonia for the Klondike this year, so we are told. Elder McBrian closed the revival at the Christian church last Sunday mgnc. A good many young ladies are employed in the different Fredonia stores. Gas, in the right kind of form, is all right, but some people make us weary. "When a train of thoughts tries to pass through some men's brains it is always ditched." The season is almost here when some farmers will be less in evidence in the county seat. Those young men who have their hair clipped annually can also shed their wool before long. The boys who took in the dance at Fall River, Tuesday night, talk like they were well entertained. The high school gymnasium is still going and some of its members can show all kinds of blemishes. Some mighty nice looking young ladies from the rural districts are at tending the Fredonia schools. Some people are born tired and some seem to have been born for the purpose of making others tired. We're not "skeered of" Spain Why should we be when ex-Governor Leweiung's bailing gun is bo near? The Mo. Pacific bridge crew which has been working near Fredonia for several weeks has been intermitted, The trouble with a great many men in this town is they are never satisfied with wasting their own time. A young lady in Fredonia verbally stipulated the other day that she would quit flirting. We are from Missouri What will occur? Neither of the Fredonia dancing crowds "shook their feet" on Washington's birthday. The flouring mills in the west part of town nave been running this wees:, We heard the whistle, that's how we know. T. D. Hampson can now be found near Roper on his farm. Go it, Tom, and bring your pumpkins to fredonia after nusiang. E. H. Allen went to Topeka Mon day to attend a barbers' convention, being sent by the different shops of the city as a delegate. The Methodists will give a Klon dike social tonight on north side of Square. Suppose the guests will get "grub" of low temperature. The proceeds of the chicken-pie dinners will soon enable the Congre gational ladies to purchase a brand new organ ior tneir cnurcn. A little Fredonia boy, when asked by his mother what he was doing in the pantry, replied: "Oh, I'm just putting a few things away." A young lady In Fredonia (a pretty nice one) is positive that she never says anything that sounds "nsny" to her beau, if she does he ought to un tie himself. At first some of the fire boys kicked on getting white uniform trousers, but when they were told that the black stripe would show that they bad on their pants the objection blew away. This puzzling proposition is keeping the loafers busy just now: A man owed another man a dollar, and all he had was seventy-five cents. So he went to a pawnbroker and pawned the seventy-five cents for fifty cents, and then he met a friend and sold him the pawn ticket calling for seventy five cents for fifty cents. Thus he had two fifty-cent pieces, $1, and he went and paid his bill. Was anybody out, and how much? Ex. The Forest Oil Co.'s new gas well al Benedict was finished and tested las week. It has a capacity of 1,120,000 cubic feet in twenty-lour noun. Al though not so strong as the Cauble well it is considered a better well, as it is entirely free from water. If needed it will be connected with the Chanute gas line. Altoona Journal. Mr. and Mrs. Guy Orendorff, who live on Lee Prunty's farm, began using natural gas for fuel last week. Mr, Orendorff says he has thrown away his ax and Mrs. Orendorff Bays she will throw away her broom as there is no dirt in the house now. Buffalo Advocate. The skimming station now being built at lias will not only save the farmers of Colfax-tp. the trip to Cha nute daily, but will materialy increase the out-put of the creamery here. Chanute Blade.

The Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe railroad Is completed to w ithin t wel ve miles of Pueblo. Elk Falls flour, according to the Ledger, is shipped to Ottawa and other parts of the State. The Klrwin Chief says there has not been a hostile Indian in that neighborhood for three years.

Wil son will have two, Montgomery three, Labette three and Neosho two. Mr. Dildlne, of Chanute, recently brought from Ohio a half dozen English sparrows and set tbem free at lils place. It Is said that this bird is a great destroyer of insects. Rev. Thos. Murdock, of Emporia, is a zeal ous and shouting Methodist and father of the editors of the Eldorado Times and Wichita Eagle; but the zeal and enthusiasm of tho boys" doesn't run that way. Ice is being shipped from Wisconsin to the Central States in large quantities. Here in southern Kansas we'll have to draw on the northerly regions or get along nest summer with an exceedingly limited supply. This story, is told of two Butler-co. farmers who are not Grangers. They induced their wives to join and report before they would commit themselves. Now when they will, they cannot. Two black balls greet every application. Meanwhile the wives go regu larly and triumphantly to every meeting of the Grange, and the men stay at home to mind the babies. Bent Jfurdock. "Ills Honor," Judge Talcott, was formerly a practical printer, and gave evidence of it the other day in the Citizen office by taking up a handful of long primer and distributing it in the cases, showing much adeptness in the feat. His father and brother are publishing a paper at Valparaiso, Indiana, and the Judge himself formerly occupied the same relation to the Neosho Valley Register, at Iola. Kevere, Woouson-co., has had its name changed back to Toronto, It is well to add however, thai Revere had never been adopted as a name, and but few arc cognizant that it has been the legal title of the place for a year past. It was named Revere by the Rep resentative (Mann) from Woodson-cn. In the last Legislature, but the only thing the change effected was the a fore mentioned Rep resentative's political decease. Greenwood, Lyon, Wabaunsee, Morris, Coffey, Woodson, Anderson and many other of the older counties in the State are strongly opposed to the herd law. They have a large area ot railroad and speculators land, and herd law or no herd law It is not likely to be settled up much more until the rush to the homestead lands in the western part of the State ceases. This Is what has Riven the western counties their rapid settlement and growth cheap, or free, lands not the herd law. Question of Rental. B. F. Troxel, of Neodesha, was in Buffalo Saturday in the interest of the Forest Oil company, or, more specifically speaking, to surrender a lease to Mrs. Henry Pearmain. It seems that Mrs. Pear-main claims a rental on the land because the oil company neither drilled a well nor surrendered the lease prior to the time designated in the lease for its forfeiture. It has been claimed that unless the lease is surrendered before any rental comes due, the land owner, upon which an oil company has a lease to prospect for oil or gas, can then collect a year's rental. J. W. Davis, cf Rest, held to this theory and collected 220 rental before he would accept the lease, and some oth ers have done the same. Mrs. Pear- main now claims two year's rental. Mr. TroxeI had a witness with him, and although the lease was not ac cepted he left it on the premises. The case will probably be settled in court. Advocate. It is not often that a physician recommends a patent medicine; when he does, you may know it is a good one. Dr. J. P. Cleveland, Glasgow, Va., writes: "I have used Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy in my practice and it has proven to be an excellent remedy where a thorough course of medicine had failed with me. I recommend it to my patients every time for colic and diarrhoea." Many other progressive physicians recommend and use this remedy, because it always cures and cares quickly. Get a bottle and you will have an excellent doctor in the house, for all bowel complaints, both for children and adults. For sale by W. I.
