The bake of Veragua, a promi
nent Spaniard, said in an interview
with a Madrid newspaper reporter
that “at the time of the ipiadri-cen
tennial of the discovery of America,
McKinley waa governor of the state
of Chicago.'' Those Spaniaids are
great on geography. 'Hiero is a pos
sibility that ho may be dictator to

To the editor of the Time* —Yes
sir, the Manager of the Pringle Come
dy Co., did the right thing with us,
gave us a comp each for ourself and
wife, and we guve him a meritorious
notice due a first class show for the
same, he also gave us some job work
for which he paid us gii.ftO eta., cush
for all ot which he has our many
thanks, hut we did not betray his
confidence by trying to run in out
siders as you did, and then whine
like a whipped cur when asked to
desist. _
War has practically been declared
by the lower branch of congress and
yet our own itm iireeu was siiem as
the tomb. Perhaps bis famous “Sea
of Glass’' wouldn’t fit the war propo
sition. It it could have been worked
in Bro. Green would no doubt have
told congress all about the road to
Jericho, lie has worked in the
speech on all kinds of occasions from
a pop harangue to a Fourth of July
oration, and it was too bad that pat
riotic Bill couldn't ring the changes
in on the Cuban war. —Kearney Hun
Paragraphs are going the rounds
of the press singing the praise of the

dazzle of northern gold. We notice
them even in some angelic pop ’
papers for the unsuspecting farmer i
to see and get excited over. Those I
pieces are written and sent out by a
company that is trying to sell shares
in a “Rich strike" for the benefit of ,
the Company. Kou'l lie taken in, we i
had an offer of the same kind hut we i
prefer to give our readers facts as '

The editor of the Time* Indepen
dent would have it readers believe
that by getting hi* paper nearly all
patent print it cost much more tlinn
to print it at home, as he said local}
a few weeks ago, that he would
rattier put more money into It and
continue ibe six page patent service
and give his subscribers better read
ing, than to print four pages at home.
Now in one respect Mr. Brown is
correct and that is that be positive
ly gives his subscribers better read
ing, in fact uny mlscelnneous rend
ing matter is better than hiseditorial
rot. But regarding the expense of
borne print Mr. Brown is off, and he
knows it Just as well as uny other
printer, but because we are printing
four pages and him only two In col
ors his statements to suit the occas
ion Now it costs just $1.00 extra
weekly to gel the two extra page* of
patent print. If he were to put up
the matter at borne it would cost him
on an average of $10.80 per week
there being :oj,0o0 'ms in the two ex
tra pages to set, ul the going price
of 30 cents per thousand for compo
sition, to say nothing of the extra
press work. Our two extra home
pages do not cost us that much.
We are running them, under force of
circumstances, with the least possible
expense, about $0.00 a week. They
are made up of standing advertise
uienta, home composition and a
bout two columns of plate matter.
Thus we put $5.00 a week more ex

when only printing two home pages,
hut it gives our advertisers us well

riie only point we can see that
Mr. Brown has made is that be mis
ed, or attempted to mislead bis sub
icribers as to the cost of printing,
ind that he acknowledged that he
,‘ould buy more valuable reading for
i dollar than he could write tor two

Our trade is steadily increasing and it is flattering evidence to us that our j
new plan of hammering down the prices is appreciated bv the public, and by
adding largely to our stock, many articles heretofore sold in other stores for high
prices, and selling them on a very close margin, we are gradually building up a bus
iness that is highly satisfactory. We have a mammoth stock of Dry Goods,
Hoots, Shoes, Hats, Caps, and Notions, all new spring goods, but wo do not be
lieve in selling them on large profits to make up fora sacrifice in some other -de
partment, because we find that we can do more business on close margin than on ^
large profits, and a large volume of business will give us good interest on our
investment. Don't go by our store if you want a bargain in a Trunk or Valice
or in fact anything to put in it. We are here to do business and have employed
the aid of low prices in every department to assist us. Come in and see our
goods and learn our prices when you visit the county seat. Remember the plaee,
