On the fourth of November the people of Davis couuty will be called upon to vote on a proposition to issue bonds to the amount of eleven thousand dollars for the following purposes: Seven thousand dollars fey the construction of an iron bridge over the Ilepublieau river at Milford ; one thousand dollar, for the building of an iron bridge over Lyon creek at Fredrick's crose-ing of the - Juuctiou City and Marion Center ' slate road; oue thousand dollars for the building of an iron bridge over Clark's creek, at Honey's crossing of the Davis creek county road; one thousand dollars for the building of an iron bridge over Clark's .creek road at the crossing of the Dry creek county road, and one thousand dollars . for the building of an iron bridge over Clark's creek at Mitchell's mills. Now, then, the building of these bridges is a necessity. Sooner or later they will be built and the sooner they are erected the better it will be for the finances of the county and the people will be accommodated at an earlier lay. Building material is on the rise and will be considerably higher a year hence than it U now. The people at Milfoid and in ths western portion of Riley and the southern portion of Clay counties require a bridge at Milford. A large quantity of block and grain in western Riley that is now taken to Manhattan for shipment would be shipped at the Milford depot if there was a good bridge across the Republican at that point. A bridge there would materially help the busi uesa of Milford, and what helps Milford, or any particular section of the county, helps the whole county. The people of Milford now pay taxes on bridges that do not directly benefit them and it is nothing more than fair and just that those who are directly benefitted by these bridges should .tist Milford in obtaining what she i-easouably" demands, a bridge. All le aaks of the county for this purpose is 67,000. It will probably cost double mat sum to build it. The additional muii than $7,000. The four creek bridges proposed will be directly in the interest of Junction City. To build them the sum of $4,-000 U asked. They are needed for the convenience of farmers in their respective vicinities and in Dickinson and Morris counties, having business atJunctiou City. While Milford is -asking assistance to build her bridgeof Junction City and her immediate friend, Milford will also vote ?!fc.tetoue? for the erection of the Vfeek bridges that directly interest Junction City. When this fact is considered, in addition to the fact that Milford pays her proportion of taxes on several bridges already constructed for the direct benefit of Junction City, surely nowise or fair-minded citizen I or friend of Junction will hesitate to vote for the boud proposition. It always pays to be fair and generous. No city can flourish on a narrow-contracted basis. It must'deal justly with all sections. Now, Messrs. Republicans of Davis county ,the delegates of your party in a harmonious and full(exceptiug Milford township) convention, have presented you with a ticket for your support. It is your duty to ratify at the polls the action of your conveutiou. You all know the candidates. They are all wen of integrity, of unquestioned re pulilieauisai, and each is capable of tilling the position for which he has , ' i. . , . . .1 oeeu nomiaaiea. iow let us see what party metat you possess, ut course there are disappointments. There always must be in conventions. The true test of party fealty is faithful ad htieuce after the experience of dia appointment in seekiug a nomination at the hands of a convention. Stand by your colors like men,and eventually ym will all be rewarded.

J. M. Cooper.of the Chambers-burg (Pa.) Valley Spirit, who recently visited Kansas, has, aince his return home, written a voluminous report of his visit for his paper. We make the following extract: Abilene and Junction City are jealous of one another, and it behooves a man who has friends in both of them, to be careful of his steps, lest he fall and flatten his nose, or get it flattened by somebody's fist.- I shall endeavor to be iust and impartial, and at this distance I feel pretty safe. - - ' - - " Junction City does not present as pleasing an appearance as Abilene, in passing it on the railroad , nor does tie tirst glance at it when you reach the business part quite satisfy the eye ; but it "wears well." It lies too high ahove the railroad to be seen to advantage in passing, and the buildings in the business portion do not present a very attractive appearance, though many of them are highly substantial stone structures. Ornamental cornices on these flat-roofed stone buildings would improve their appearance, though of course they answer the purposes for which they were erected ju?t as well without. It is only when you walk or drive through and around Junction City that you take in the beauty of its situation. It lies on a high and nearly level plateau large enough to accomodate a city of one hundred thousand inhabitants if closely built. The Smoky Hill river is off a mile or so on one side, and the Republican flows down the other, whilst the plateau is backed by a line of bluffs from, which beautiful magnesian limestone (called Junction Citv marble) is quarried in blocks and slabs of any size desired. A public Square planted with trees, embellishes the heart of the town, and many trees have been planted on the streets and in private grounds, but this has not been carried to the same extent as in Abilene. Junction City has some fine dwelling houses, both of stone and frame, large and fine school buildings, and at least one church (Presbyteriau) that would be a credit to any town. Stores and shops are numerous, and some of them are quite large and give evidence of a heavy business. A brick hotel building, with stone corners and window and door sills and caps, is now going up, and when finished it will be larger and finer than any we can boast in the Cumberland valley, as large and tine as our Chambersburg hotels . At Abilene you mav chance to meet somebody who will tell you that Junction City has grown prematurely old and is pretty well dried up : and at Junction City you may chance to meet somebody who y i 1 mildly insinuate that Abilene has grown "too big for its breeches," which will be .rent someday. Junction City, under the influence of the Texas cattle trade, did spring into proportions not warranted by the regular business of the surrounding country, and when the cattle trade went to a point farther west she found one-half of her houses deserted. But the country has been filling up with farmers and the empty houses have been re-occupied, and Junction City is far removed from a dead or a "finished" town. She stands, in truth, only on the first round of the ladder of permanent property, with every chance in the world to ascend very "much higher. Abilene has grown fast and is growing still, but she is not a whit "too big for her breeches." The country around her is filling up fast and will for years continue to fill up. so that Abilene must hereafter do a larger business than she is now doing. Both Junction City and Abilene must and will become large and important places. Their ituation and surroundings are sure guar- lty has the advantage road facilities, with land equally fertile but not quite so deliirhtfullv SDread out. Abilene has some sandv land close at hand that is not a fair sample of the splendid soil of Dickinson county, and Junction City has a line of sand hills back of her uluffs which are verv far re moved from fair samples of the exceedingly rich soil of Davis county. But the sandy land near Abilene and the sandy i i -r . . . r. tana near junction tjitv are but small patches on the broad and smiling face of the counties in which thev lie. Thev would pass for good land in "some of the eastern states. EXCELLENT ADVICE. Fxchange.J - Jut a few words, girls, and don't get mad. Go slow on getting acquain ted with every stranger that stops a day in your town. Men are on the lookout for vouncr women to flirt with. Don't try to be the first to catch a corn- mercial traveler or receive bis com- pany at your homes, or go with him to social gatherings. This class of men make fun of you to your friends. Don't "snub" the young men you know to gain the momentary attention of strangers. It never pays. You may mean all right, but an un just public is sure to bint many wick ed things about you. Many young ladies fall out of notice,- socially, by being ruled by a desire to flirt with strangers. Take the advice we offer and see how much happier you will be when you settle down in homes of your own.
