dry goods house was in the city today.
His territory which he travels is Okla-
homa and Texas. He says that in
many parts of Texas the green louse
has entirely killed the wheat, but in
other parti it will make a half average.
In Oklahoma, he stated, the wheat was
in fine condition. Hii mode of travel
acron country in many parts permits
him to make a good summary of the
crops, and in almost every place he hsB

The city council is apparently up
against one very difficult proposition
and that is the solving of the proposi-
tion of town cows. Nearly two years
ago the council, in order to induce
property holders in the residence por-
tions of town to beautify their (places
passed an ordinance granting all prop
prty holders the privilege of uiing 25
feet of the street in front of their resi
deuces for parking purposes. Many of
our people took advantage of this op-
portunity to beautify their homes and
have planted trersand shrubbery on
this portion of the street. In order to
protect these young plants from dam-
age by stock runniug at large some of
our people fenced in the park reserves.
This aroused the ire of the eouncil and
it issued an edict that no fences should
he permitted beyond property lines.
Then cams up the perplexing question
of town cows. There are probably
more than a hundred of them which
are driven to end from pasture morn-
ing and eyeniag by some of the most
careless boys that ever lived. They
let the cows roam all over these culti-
vated spots without even noticing the
damage they do. The only protection
afforded property owners against these
invasions is such as they alTord them-
selves and under existing circum-
stances, the woman who docs not
stand out in the front yard mornings
and evenings armed with a broom stick
to drive away these brutal cows, has
no shrubbery in her front yard. The
council is now willing to come to the
relief of the ladies*>but they do not
seem to know how to begin. Sugges-
tions as to how to care for the town
cow and her driver are now in order.
A Loss To Bahntge-
About 5 o'clock this evening the
south side shelves of Behntge's store
took a tumble. Glassware, crocks,
cans, fruit, etc., broke crashed and
were entirely ruined. The loss to Mr.
Bahntge will be close to $500.
A New Building.
The old frame structures which were
occupied by Davis and Adams have
been moved from the lots and todsy
work was begun on the clearing of the
grooud ready for the foundation of a
two story brick building. Mr. Barne*,
the purchaser of the lots will, when the
building is erected, put in a full line of
clothing. This new building will be
another big help to that block and
with the exception of two frame build-
ings the block will be of brick entirely.

Came Near Drowning.
Several boys went to the college pond
yesterday evening and during the
course of their sport one young fellow
by the name of Joe Lessart suddenly
took a cramp and began to sink. Two
of his companions tried hard for his
rescue but found that they could do
but very little. Arthur Tarr, who was
on the bank, at once dived in with bis
clothes on. and the three rescued Let
sart. He soon recovered and the boys,
although quite badly excited, are
thankful they came out safe.
Certainly Wrong On The Date.
The |Abilene (Kansas) Demoerat
notes the ease of a man who "twenty
years ago this spring ran away tain
school and went buffalo hunting," and
who is now an editorial writer on I
daily paper. It is difficult to determ
ine just what the Democrat is driving
at—whether it is attempting to point
the uselessness of education or the
depths of degration to whichn lad may
fall if he runs away from school—but
it is quite certain that so late t
twenty years ago the boy couldn
have slaughtered many buffalo.

Last night the elerks of the city met
at the Red Men's hall and organized a
union and elseted their officers.
It is the object of this union to have
all stores close at a certain time in the
evening and to have a regular time of
It is met with favor by all the mer-
chants with but few exceptions and
should such a regulation be made it
would give the elerks and the mer-
chants themselves the evenings which,
through the summer months should be
The object of the union is good anu
every merchant should help this along
by consenting to close at the set time.
Just us much goods will be sold and
the sales would be just as equally di-
vided as if they kept open till 10 o'clock
or later. Several merchants have ex-
pressed themselves that they are per
fectly willing to do this, but should 00
per cent of them close and the other
Id per cent stay open it would un-
doubtedly split the entire arrange-
ment and tho balance would be re-
quired to do likewise and keep opon
doors as if to. freezo their neighbor
brol hers out.
Unions are good things if conduetad
right and this on* which has bean
formed is starting out on that plan.
For a City Hall.
The city council is now considering a
proposition to get funds necessary for
the erection of a city ball, from
' Building and Loan Association." The
city has a lot on Rast Ninth avenue
just one block from Main street
it is on this lot that the council pro-
poses to erect the building. Under
the terms proposed for getting the
funds the city will have to deed the
lot to the building assooiation or to
trustee who will erect the building and
charge a monthly rental fora period of
vears when the property is to become
the property of the city.
The figures submitted contemplate
the erection of a $"500 00 building, and
the terms offered are
$40 00 monthly for 112 months,
or 47 00 " " 84 "
or 52.50 " "72 "
Either one of these three proposition
moans the payment of nearly two dol
lars for each dollar borrowed, but
all the plans of payment extend over
number of years this is not particularly
bad. provided the city eventually gets
the property. Then again, there is no
particular advantage in a city buying
things on monthly payments. Practic-
ally all the revenue of the city comes
hi at two stilted times eueh year and
the eity might as well arrange for six
of these payments to come at once and
l>o done with it. The worst feature of
the whole transaction is the method of
doing business usually adopted by a
building and loan association. Under
the terms they usually adopt the bor-
rower gets no credit on his indebted-
ness for payments made but is credit-
ed on stoek of the company which may
and may not be all right at the maturi-
ty of his payments.
