We doubt very much if there is a
store in Pawnee county that carries
as complete and up-to-date stock ol
gents furnishing goods as can be
lound in Ralston. Harry Hros are
to be congratulated for furnishing the
people with this much needed enter-
prise and they certainly deserve a
liberal share of your patronage.
The boys and girls of to-day will be
the men and women thirty years from
to-day. Just what amount of intelli-
gence this rising generation will pos-
sess depends largely upon parents
and teachers. If the parents ami
teachers will unite in their efforts to
teach the great lessons of honesty,
sobriety, truthfulness and respect for
others, the chances are nine to one
that this nation cau boast of honor-
able, industrious and intellighnt men
and women thirty years hence.
house was insured to tha amount of
$2500 and $1500 for the furniture.
How to get the people to church is
a question that has been bothering
the ministers not only ot this city,
but of other cities for years.
The Rev. C. P. Connolly of the local
Congregational church seems to have
hit upon the right plan. Sometime
ago, he commenced a musical service
tor Sunday nights and a short address
by himself on some important subject.
When he commenced these services,
his congregation did not average 100
persons. They have been getting
larger every Sunday until last Sun-
day night mo/e than 400 people were
The music by home talent is the
best that can be had in the city. The
program every Sunday night is differ-
ent and the address is in length from
15 to 20 minutes.
The new people attending these
services are not all members of other
churches, but mainly people who have
not been attending any place of wor-
hip It would be safe to say that i <
percent of the people of this city
love music and they will turnout once
a week and attend a musical service,
and they will not object to, but ap-
preciate a short addtess by the pas-
tor. To make these servises more at-
tractive, the hymns that are sung by
the congregation should be to some
well known tune so that ail could join
in, and in this way take part iu the
services. The Sunday night musical
services are becoming very popular.

Bountiful Residence Burned.
Fire last Friday morning between *
and o'clock completely destroyed
the beautitul residence of C. E. Van-
dervoort in the south part of town.
Mr. Vandervoort's home is the Moy-
nihan place, which he had recently
purchased and had added many im-
provements to the already beautiful
home. Either a defective Hue or the
electric light wires are supposed to
lie the cause of the tire, as when dis-
covered the entire ceiling of the up-
per Hoor was ablaze. They were suc-
cessful in saving most of their furni-
ture and in very good condition. The

Over 100,000 bushels of v corn
has been marketed at this place and
the crop is but tairly started, the
bulk of this money will go into circu-
lation either to pay debts or in buy-
ing supplies. The bulk of this money
probably has been spent ^t home, but
there are many thousands yet to
come, this too should be kept at home.
To do this the business men must put
forth an effort. Other towns are mak-
ing a bid for this trade. Each week
the papers of Ralston, l'ouca City,
Kaw City and Pawhuska come into
this field loaded with advertisements
from merchants in those tow us and in
many instances quoting prices lower
than can be had here. It is not our
wish to tell the merchants how to con-
duct their business, we rasrely wish
to call their attention to the sharp
competition which undermines their
business and takes many dollars from
the town if they don't meet it. Fair-
