The Rock Island is foremost in adopt-

and comfort that popular patronage de- j

Faithful and capable management

difficult of accomplishment. Passen-

Rev. Parker, Territorial Super-
intendent of Public Instruction has
declined to resign his position as
requested bv Governor Renfrow.
Rev. Parker has been expected to,
and in fact had told several different
parties that he would tender his
resignation whenever requested to
do so. His refusal is undoubtedly
the result of a conferene with ex-
governor Scay and other prominent
west side politicians. Rev, Parker
insinuates in his letter to the gov-
ernor that he is the only man in the
territory competent to fill the
position. Governor Renfrow is
right id surrounding himself with
his political friends and the position
held by Mr. Parker, while not a
political one, is largely a business
one and should be tilled by a demo-
crat at once.—El Reno Minstrel.

Last Sunday livery rigs were in
such a demand in Hennessey that
the three stables we have were not
equal to the occasion. Every team ;
that came in in the afternoon was
rushed for as though it was the last
thing on earth wished for. But it
is just the same in other branches
of business at this place. Phev
are all over done.
Come to the Farmers Place for
anything you want in the liquor
line and you will not be disappoint-
ed. You will always get just what
you buy or your money will be re-
funded. Tell your friends to meet
you at the Farmers Place where
you will always be a welcome call-

A Oood Seleetion.
The selection of Hon. C. 11. Cars-
well as World's Fair commissioner
by Gov. Renfrow is a wise one and
is sufficient evidence that the gov-
ernor is going to make li is selections
from the very best material. Mr.
