Kellcy, Stigcr &Co. the laigc dry goods
firm, which has been doing business

"Potato Specialists" from Kansas
City, arc in Harrisburg and will erect a
large storage house here. Tncy will
also experiment in raising potatoes and
will plant something like G40 acres this
season. They arc not fully satisfied
that this will make a potato country
around Greeley, Colo, and say that our
farmers have little of the cortcct idea
of taising potatoes to get the best re
suits. Theii method of potato raising
will bo watched with inteiest. Says
the Banner County News.
Senator Matt Quay of Pennsylvania
in a verv sick man at Atlantic City and
the doCtois in attendance state that ab
solute quiet and lost aic conducive to
bis recovery. Surely this is the most
toMiig obligation the patient has to tin
drifo.. Mitt's whole public career has
been a stoiiny one, and now to change
the tenor of bis way abiuptly is asking
a ucat deal. He is 71 jears old and
wi'h the fire of youth gone, thuie is
icason to believe that he lias chances
against him in his fight for life. But
what would the Republican party of
that state do without his presence?
An official dispatch from the beat of
wai in tho far east, dated April 1, states
that the Russian battleship Petto
paovsl;, under command of Admit al
Makaroff, struck a submatincminc and
was demolished, sinking with all on
board save 32 men and seven officers.
Among those saved was Grand Duke
C ill. The Rusbian fleet was on its
aj to give battle to the Japanese
fleet, which was being icinfoiced to
such a strength that it was thought nd
visable to retreat to the inner harbor
and it was while this was underway
that the Potropavlovsk struck the mine.
The loss of lives number fully 800,
Thete is dissatisfaction among the
teachers of tho state because tho male
teachers teceive more for their woik
than do the woman. The table of in
crease or the last six years, as
prepaicd by State Superintendent
Fowler, shows that the lowest aeragc
salary paid the man teacher exceeds
the highest one paid the woman teach
er by $1.77, and that the highest salary
paid the man teacher exceeds the high
est paid the woman by Si 1. ig. The
women arc themselves to blame if such
is the case and should make an attempt
to remedy matters. v
T Hi: COUN ritY'S SALVATION.
"The salvation of the country dc
ponds upon tj e success of tho demo
ctatic party in the fall election" is the
conclusion reached by F. W. Shepherd
son, professor of history in the Univer
sity of Chicago, and imparted to the
students in his class.
Prof Shephardson, who is an en
thusiastic Roosevelt supporter, was dis
cussing the Virginia and Kentucky
resolutions in favor of state rights and
their influence in checking the cential-
ization of power by the federalists in
"I hae never been a democrat in
politics," said he "but I have always
thought that the Virginia and Kentucky
resolutions in favor of state rights were
among the best things that ccr hap
pened in American politics. They
crystallized anti-federalistic sentiment
and led to the election of Jefferson and
tho overthrow of the federalist patty.
This overthrow probabj saved the re
public as such. Had not this occurred
the republic would have become so
highly centralized as to cease to be a
In the opinion of the professor, the
people of this country have a similar
situation before them today a situa
tion which demands a transfer of the
reigns of power. "I believe," lie said,
"that if tho democrats should be suc
cessful at the -coming election it would
be a groat thing for the country. It
would tend to check certain dangerous
tendencies for instance undue expan
sion and the tendency of the people to
change their attention on certain great
political questions, such as the tariff,
tt ust and reform policies." -Grand Is

A remonstrance is beirrg circulated
by Anton Uhrig against the road down
the railroad track to Alliance. Through
some hokus pokus the road was not
lard out as petitioned for a year or two
ago and now the old petition lias been
revived. The remonstrance might" kill
the toad and those interested, if any,
should sec to it that their petition has
an rmpattial consideration. Above is
written without any desire to influence
any for or against the road. The ma
jority should govern in all cases and the
matter should be given publicity so that
an intelligent expression from those in
terested may be obtained.
