be deprived of the excitement of
the visual spring municipal el-
ection this year. Senate Bill No.
193 passed by the last legislature
cuts the board of trustees down
to one member I rom each ward.
The law, however did not go in-
to effect until after the officers
elected last spring had taken
their seats and the lawyers held
that both these four trustees and
the four elected in April 1910,
for two years, were entitled to
On the First of next May, the
term of the officers elected in
1910, expires, leaving the busi-
ness of the town in the hands of

By Mrs, Chas. Johnson
Kerdrick people were aroused from
slumber early Tuesday morning by a
terrible noise and whistles blowing.
On investigating they fou"J a freight
train had been wrecked just below the
section house. Eight cars were upset
containing brick, oats, corn, sugar and
an emmigrant car with several horses
in it. The man who owned the things
was in there sleeping. It killed one
horse and crippled one real bad and
bruised several. At first report, the
man was almost killed but later he was
in much better condition. This is the
second wreck since starting from West-
ern Kansas to Arkansas. He thinks he
was hurt worse in the first wreck than
in the last. He is at the hotel being
cared for till fie family arrives.

When I hear people eomplaining I
always think of a verse I committed to
memory one time and it has helped me
so I will write it for the benfit of others
and believe it would do us all good to
"Look on the bright side every time.
Don't waste your days repining.
When any cloud looks dark and dull,
Turn out the silver lining.
Be wise. Be cheerful, bright and glad,
Leave to the fool his folly.
And let your motto be, cheer up,
Your rule of life. Be jolly."

The republican county converi-
tion at Chandler last Saturday
was a Sunday school compared
with the democratic convention
Everything was delightfully
barmonous. If there were more
than two or three Taft suppor-
ters there they failed to bring
themselves to the notice of the
meeting and Roosevelt may be
said to have received the unan-
imous endorsement of the con

"Dynamite" Ed Perry of Col-

the interest of the Roosevelt, or-

with much applause.

strong with his party and others
and is the biggest man yet in
sight for the office he wants.
Report on Chccker Game
As promised last week we
give the following report: The
game was steady and strong all
week—but few members were
either absent or tardy and as the
day to award the prizes drew
near the interest became intense.
When the head marks were
eounted it was found that two
had tied, whereupon it was
agreed to play the tie off.
The players solemnly seated
themselves and the struggle be-
gan. Player A (who is a con-
servative man) advanced cau-
tiously to the center. B quickly
tlanked him. A, after due con-
sideration, again advanced. B
switched and took round through
"Jonathan old patch." A, after
more consideration, ventured
another move. B struck him in
the "umbilica." After longer
deliberation A moved. B now
gave him an upper left hand cut
to the 8 and the great battle
was won and the prizes ;i warded
mid wild cheering.
