One of the leading addresses made before the association of real estate men in Salina last week was by J. R. Burton, of Abilene, and in it he dwelt upon a subject of much interest to himself as well as to every farmer located in the western half of the state. Mr. Burton is making his campaign for the United States senate just now and in dwelling upon this subject of general interest and advocating the aid of the government in placing water on the Kansas plains, he is making many votes. Mr. Burton remarked that the real estate men did not want to tell the purchasers that western Kansas does not need irrigation, because it does The ball boys started on their most extended tour of the season via the Santa Fe, Saturday night.

The iirst day was spent in setting the docket, the jury not being called until Wednesday morning. Dr. I. E. Layton charged with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill was first called up and it appeared to the satisfaction of the court that the weapon was not a deadly weapon and that the complaining witness had continually liarrassed and tormented the doctor with every devilish ingenuity, till as the court said, he would have been justified in giving the boy a good thrashing. Dr. Layton was fined fifty cents and cost. The State vs. Shook, jointist, one from the batch indicted and carried over from the February grand jury, was called early in the session and the jury after hearing the evidence retired to their room but failing to agree were discharged by His Honor.

Our line of school shoes are the best to be had. upright conduct in official station for public approbation is an ambition that should be cherished and encouraged, and the bestowal of a second term to the incumbent of the office implies a general recognition of such endeavor, and supplies a strong stim-ulous to well-doing. The justice as well as the usefulness of this principle as a means of improving the public service has rendered the practice of granting second terms to faithful incumbents of general application. When called nearly four years ago by the suffrages of my citizens to take upon myself the solemn functions of judge of this district I did not flatter myself that my official conduct would be free from mistake or error, nor yet that I should escape criticism for some things which were neither mistaken nor erroneous. This would be an immunity which the wisest and best of judges have never enjoyed. There are always two opposing parties to law suits, each of whom believes he has the right on his side, and it is not in human nature to always accept an adverse decision with meek submission. Appellate courts have found it necessary to revise the judgments of the most learned on the judicial bench. While the triumph of justice among men is the aim and purpose of the law, the law itself is not infallible, and it must find manifestation through fallible instrumentality. It should, however, be the earnest desire of those clothed with judicial functions, by earnest inquiry and thought, to ascertain the law and to apply it with impartial fidelity. To this end, if called by the suffrages of my fellow citizens to continue for another term to exercise these functions, I pledge my utmost endeavors. Very Truly Yours, James Humphrey.

Then when the Methodist clergy of Chicago invited him to address them, thinking that such a wise man, who boasted more knowledge than the founders and administrators of this government would be broad enough to lay aside his socialistic tendencies and give them some common sense. But when he began to uphold anarchy and denounce religion, the patriotic preachers rose as one man and cast him out of the temple. Patience ceases to be a virtue, even with the ministers of the gospel. Wichita Again. After four days spent in an effort to get a jury to try the case against the officers of the Citizen's Social club at Wichita for violations of the prohibitory liquor law the case was dismissed by the assistant to be amateur and becomes strictly professional. Although the boys suffered defeat it was a defeat in which there was no disgrace and a victory void of glory.
