BUFFALO ADVOCATE. Entered In the Post Office at Buffalo, Kansas M seoond class mail matter. PUBLISHED EVERV FRIDAY, $1 Per "STear. By COWDEBY MHOS. .Xl hardly seems possible that year comes another presidential next cam- ; A number of negro soldiers haye ! brought home native wives from Cuba. I It is said that the women are very wealthy. One of the greatest crosses the republican party has to bear is a man like Deneflel, of Montgomery county, wanting to run for congress. The Kansas City Star, though upholding President McKinley's expansion policy, says he is not for much of any thing until he finds ouV. its effect politically. ' The Topeka Capital says that In the years to come no lisping child will declare with pride that her grandfather was a member of the Kansas legislature of '09. The number of American soldiers killed in action during the Spanish war is a little over three hundred, and the number dying of wounds is only 12!), but the number dying from disease reaches the enormous number of 5277. The republicans have reached the conclusion that T. B. Reed of Maine is not just the man for the next speaker of the house of representatives. Democrats reached such a conclusion some time ago but the republicans were slower of comprehension. The corporation which has bought the gas field and smelter interests of Allen county was chartered in New Jersey where all great trusts are now chartered on account of lax laws. There is no longer any doubt but that this smelter corporation and the Standard Oil Company are controlled by the same head. According to a circular received at the county clerk's olllce at Fredonia a law was passed at the recent legislature which makes the time of regular April meeting of the county commissioners begiB on the "first Monday" instead of the "first Monday after the first Tues day" as heretofore. The other regular sessions are unchanged in this county. Millionaire Rockefeller and Kansas. "For the last 25 years I have taken my family and spent a rnontu each fall on my ranch In Kiowa county, Kan., and those weeks spent there are the happiest ones I see during the en tire year," remarked Frank Rockefeller, vice president of the Standard Oil company, to a reporter in Kansas City last week. "I like the west, its good-natured freedom, its wonderful weather in autumn, Its hospitable people and all that makes it, to me, one ideal place to spend the time one takes from work and business. There's no place on earth, I have found, where the weather is ho delightful as in Kansas in autumn. "I like to get there because I don't have to dress each evening and observe all the regulatious of society. I am free from that, can be with my family, where all is pleasant, and he just a plain citizen. There la something so free and cordial in the hospitality of the west. The people have business energy in large measure but they don't figure anything by the standard of the dollar as in other places," "What have I on my ranches? Why, I have a few hundred Here-fords, a lot of shorthornes, some Per-cheron horses, a lot of trotting stock and other animals. I like to get out there each year aud look the stock over." Mr. Rockefeller Is about 55 years old, well preserved, stands erect nearly six feet tall and wears a closely cropped mustache. He dresses quietly and is courteous and easily approached. He talks in straight-forward, emphatic manner. He chews tobacco vigorously while speaking and bandies the "quid" as it afforded him great pleasure. Nothing in bis manner, appearance or hab its suggests the millionaire. THREE BILLION DOLLARS. In the last ten days new industrial trusts have been formed, under New Jersey charter, of course, with an aggregate capitalization of $100,000,000, says the Kansas City Times. Among the number is a new chewing gum trust by the manufacturers of Chicago, Louisville, Brooklyn and Cleveland, with a capital of $15,000,000. The purpose of this trust is to bankrupt the other chewing gum trust and confine the manufacturing of the stuff to the four cities named. What it really means is trust righting trust, with the bare possibility of both being wrecked. They have the best wishes of the people for great success along that line. The Pacific-American Fisheries company is a new food trust, with a capitalization of $50,000,000, and its purpose is to control the entire salmon outputof Puget sound and neighboring waters. The companies in this trust controlled 70 per cent of the business before they combined, and now they propose to control the remaining 30 per cent by driving those who have it out of the business, and also to advance prices to where about $25,000, 000 of watered stock can rely upon handsome dividends. If the new coal trust completes its organization, it will have the largest capital of any industrial combine in the world-l, 000,000,000. It is under stood to be the purpose of this corpo ration to not only absorb all the best anthracite and bituminous mines in the country, but control the output all the way down to the consumers, which means that it will establish retail yards in all the principal cities and towns. The Idea is to control the business from start to finish, aud to be in a position to monopolize the trade absolutely. Of course the first order will be to advance prices aud the sec ond will be to establish a scale of wages for miners. When this trust is in operation, the combined trusts will have an aggregate capital of quite $3,000,000,000, and which in fact repre sents fully twice, if not very much more than the cash value of the various enterprises in interest. When it is considered what influence such an enormous aggregation of money could exert upon legislation and courts it is not surprising to see how almost impossible it is to enact antitrust laws and enforce them when en acted. There is some hope that a war of trust against trust may be lnauger ated. and thus defeat their thieving purpose, but it is not safe to rely upon anything of that kind. It is a mat ter that must become,ouc of the lead ing issues in national politics. Rapid Liniment is one of the most effectual pain curing remedies ever placed on the market. It drives away pain as if by magic. One teaspoonful in half a teacupful of milk or water will break up la grippe or a fever. Guaran teed to euro all pain. Sold by J. L Dryden. THIS COUNTRY'S MARVELOUS GROWTH. The census of 1000 will show that the United States has a population of 77 million people, says the -Kansas City 8tar, if the estimates of the Treas ury department are correct. The statistician of the department issues a monthly statement of the estimated population of the country, and, according to his figures, there is an in crease of about 140,000 everv tblrtv days and a gain of over 1J million every year. The official population figures in 1890 were 62,831,000, and those of 1880 were 50 million. The umber of people in the United States has been more than doubling every thirty years since the foundation of the Government, and the figures for 1900 promise to be more than twice what they were in 1870. This was a great Nation in the latter year, but It has grown more in the past three de cades than in the entire century prior to 1870. The increase in the past ten years amounts to almost as much as the entire population of the country n 1840. Few people realize how rapidly the United States is igrowing. Many young men of today will be alive when 200 million people shall be liv- ng in the domains of this great Re public. That immense population will he attained in the next fifty years if the present rate of growth is con tinued. The figures are so huge as to be almost beyond the scope of the imagination. The present population far greater than anybody ever dreamed of in the early history of the country. Thomas Jefferson, in his first naugural address in 1801, congratu lated his fellow countrymen on "pos sessing a cnosen country witn room enough for our descendants to the thousandth and tenthousandth gener ation." Only three generations have passed since then, and the 5 millions people who occupied the original domain of the Republio have grown to more than 75 millions. So far was Thomas Jefferson from realizing what greatness was in store for his country within a single century. Since he made that statement the area of the United States has grown to be three times what it was then, and ten generations instead of thousands will suf fice to fill this vast area with a teeming population, pressing for new outlets for their energy and enterprise.

Adolph Bauman was in Topeka last week and returned the first of this week. He was there in the interests of Neodesha in the race for the location of the new insane asylum. The legislature has made an appropriation of $100,000 for the purpose of building and equipping the new asylum and $1,500 for the expenses of the committee which is to select the location. The committee, which is composed of Senators Fulton, Anderson, Zimmer, Lewellingand Representatives Moore, Wright, Conrad, Bighani and Reeder, held a meeting Tuesday and organized, electing Senator Fulton chairman. It was decided to meet again in Topeka on April 21, and then start on their tour of investigation. It is doubtful if they can visit all the towns which are trying for the asylum but they will probably go as long as the money holds out. Some of the most prominent cities in the race besides Neodesha are Parsons, Chanute, Wellington, Pittsburg, Clay Center and Salina. An informal meeting of Neodesha business men was held in W. H. Cramer's real estate office Wednesday the result of which was as follows: Marion Cross was chosen chairman and A. L. Hill secretary. After some discussion the following committees were named: For the purpose of getting options on land and selecting sites to offer the legislative committee Marion Cross, D. Stewart, W. H. Cramer, D.

That is the way grip acts when it is not taken in hand and driven out of the system at once. The poisons left by the grip germs keep right on destroying the vitality and undermining the health. You lose your appe tite tor food ana wnat little 'you eat seems to do no good. Your nerves are unstrung, you become weak and exhausted and finally you are overpowered by some chronic disorder which takes you to an untimely grave. Why should you let the grip run until it gets such a hold on you when a few bottles of Dr. Miles' Nervine would fix you up all right? It is the greatest nerve medicine and health restorer ever known and thousands of grip's victims are finding in it a safe and sure means of regaining lost strength and vitality. "I found myself with a very weak stomach, and every time I tried to eat I would become nauseated, sometimes belching wind and frequently finding relief only after vomiting. My nerves became affected and I was almost blind for several months. Finally I began using Dr. Miles' Nerviue; and when I had used one bottle I was greatly improved. After taking two more bottles my stomach trouble was entirely gone and I have nad no return of the symptoms in over three years. Mrs. See Johnson Bros, for the latest and best new farm Implements. L.
