When the fusiomsts had charge of

straws to help themselves out of queer

The republicans met in Lincoln to
day to "make a little medicine. " The
convention will be controlled by.the
same old ring and they - will make the
same old promises to be broken in the
same old way. Two years ago they
"redeemed" the state and now they
have to apologize for the style of re
demption as shown by the pardon of
Bartley and they are also aware that
Treasurer Steuffer's style of "redemu-

people and may require an e < planation.
Democratic County Conven
The Democrats of Cherry county
met at the court house last Saturday
morning for the purpose of nominat
ing delegates to the state and other
conventions. The meeting was called
to order by Frank Fischer , chairman
of the county central committee and
Judge Towne was elected chairman
and W , H. Weekes elected secretary.
I. M. Bice , J. H. Taylor , and E. H.
Wilson were appointed a committee
on resolutions and Frank Fischer ,
Henry Stetter and I. M. Rice a com
mittee on credentials , after which a
recess was taken until 1:30 p. m.
When the convention was called to
order in the afternoon the committee
ou credentials reported recommend
ing that any democrat present from
any precinct represent the precinct
in which he lives : , the report was
adopted. The committee onresolu
tions reported the following , which
was adopted :
Whereas : We , the democratic vot-
ers.of Cherry County , in convention
assembled , affirm our allegiance to
the Kansas" City platform with full
confidence that our cause is just and
that our principles represent the
best interests of every honest , intel
ligent and consistent voter. We de
nounce the cruelties practiced under
the present administration in the
Philipineg and that the policy of
holding them in subjection as con
trary to the independence we enjoy
and for making a sovereign out of
our once proud republic that started
out to free the Cubans from the gali-
'ing yoke of sovereignty as practiced
by Spain. We denounce the repub
lican party for supporting the trusts
while every platform is in direct op
position to trusts and their leaders'
saying with one breath that ' 'there
are no trusts" and with the next that
.trusts are "a 0od thing and have
come to stay. " We affirm our al
legiance to the declaration of inde
pendence and the constitution of
these United States and pledge our
selves to encourage and assist other
people to enjoy the blessings of lib
erty and the equal rights of all rcen
of whatever nationality or birtb.
We endorse the action of the coun
ty commissioners in the official dis
charge of every duty without parti
ality and for their intelligent man
agement in handling the county af
fairs in which no reproach can be
brought upon them , for which the
tax payers of Cherry county should
feel thankful , and they have accom
plished much good for their constitu
ents at the smallest possible expense.
We endorse their action in redistrict-
ing the county in such proportion
that each precinct may have a dis
tinct interest in its own commission
er district ,

All picking strawberries the finest we've seen , ©
The orchard was loaded with fruit : &

John's farm is the finest of any around ,

Fifty acres of bottomland there , you will find , o

While Ed and the Editor chuckled in glee , -
The grass even smiled in the sand.

And many unpleasant thoughts bring ; ©
Why nettles and thorns in an orchard belong , - - ©
To punish our hands , with their sting. §
The beautiful rose without thorns is indeed
A treasure , but why sho'uld it be : 9
That nettles in beds without

Should torture and sting you and me. °
Kegardless of all of those pains that we feel , 9
Of nettles and thorns we will dream ;
9 We brought with us home strawberries to peel ,
And ate them with cookies and cream. o

The separator station started
up Monday morningaiidalthough
but few people knew the fact ,
something like 800 pounds of
milk was handlod. W. A. Petty-
crew went down to see the thing
start and he saw all there was of
it. He was standing in front of
the milk pump when the hose
flew off and about two quarts of
milk went in his direction.
None f it was wasted , however ,
is he caught it all ou his clothes ,
C. B. Roy man and J. L. McEl-
derry live on adjoining farms near
Arabia and during the years past
have had trouble at times on ac
count of the division line between
them. Reyman's cattle have ap
parently molested McElderry at
different times and on the 22d of
last March Reyman's sheep be
gan trespassing on the other side
of .the line. Mr. McElderry
turned them back and was shot
at by some hidden foe , supposed
to be JJeyman. Mr. McElderry
came to town at that time for the
purpose of having Reynian ar
rested , as he had made threats
of what would become of McEl
derry if he didn't leave his stock
alone to roam wherever they de
sired. It is said that Reyman
has bpen very agressive and had
placed his fence several rods over
on McElderry's land some time
ago and not being satisfied with
that , made preparations to still
further extend his pasture , when
McElderry procured a surveyor
and convinced Reyman that he
was already too far over. Not
satisfied with grazing upon his
land and having a part of it en
closed in his own pasture , he has
of late cut McElderry's fence , as ,
heallege in. his complaint against
Reyman. Whether it is simply
the aggressiveness of Reyman
or whether it is his intention to
crowd MdElderry until he is j
forced to sell out and leave , is a
conjecture. The hearing eomea
