on the night of the 10th of May,

women and children were taken

The people of the county and
neighboring cities and towns

Just before adfourning until
Sept. 4, the Supreme Court of
the Tertitory, change our district
by taking Kiowa county out and
placing it in the sixth distric in-
stead of the seventh as hereto-
fore. That in the future gives
us Judge Pancoast. We know
that in making the change the
Court has given us a good man
yet it has deprived us of a judge
who in the time he has been serv-
ing our people has made many
frtends' who are indeed soruy to
see him qaken away from us. He
is a kind hearted, generous man
not unfeeling, and as such has
endeared himself not only to the
people, but to the members of the
bar. Our court convenes Sept.
Sullivan A 8humway who some
time ago bought out the Bush
wholesale house, reports that at'
the present time they are doing j
more local and foreign trade than
they can well attend to. This |
speaks well for our local mer- !
chants, as the merchant who is
careful about patronizing home
enterprises will always receive
the patronage of his home peo-
ple. When the merchant who
can get his goods from home in-
stitutions, sends out to foreign
i concerns, he cannot expect the
! home people to always trade with
him, as he, in the first instance
sets a bad 'example. Patronize
: home people, and they will pat-
I ronize you.
Bathihg at Briles'.
The long evenings nowadays
are spent by many at the Briles
park, one mile east of the city,

They have an ideal swimming
pool with bath houses, suits,
etc., which makes things very
There were about twenty per-
sons out bathing Thursday night.

The change made in this judi-
cial district by attaching Kiowa
county to the sixth district is only
temporary, It is done for the
purpose of relieving Judge Gil-

that is imposed upon him, as this
is one of the largest districts in

Did you ever think about it?
It would only take about $5,000
to find ont Whether we had oil or
good artesian water. And that
amount could not possibly break
the town, so why not get together
subscribe that amount and make
an oil city out of Hobart? As it
now is, there is no doubt that in
