While other towns north, south,
east and west are boasting about
what they are doing, we would like
to say a word about Manchester. Tills
town is not now, never did and we
hope it never will “boom.” It just
goes along keeping pace with the
growth and development of the vast
territory tributary to it, and never
jumps a cog in its onward movement.
A careful glance at the columns of
tiie Journal shows that its business
men as a rule are alive and wide-
awake, while they carry big stocks of
everything the country demands and
their prices on nearly all lines are from
live to fifteen per cent below any
other competing point. This is one
of the great secrets of Manchester’s
success, and to this alone is due the
fact that we so often see people from
points tributary to other towns in our
stores trading. It not only pays to
come to Manchester to trade, but it
pays also to look the Journal's ad-
vertising colums over carefully before
doing so. Manchester is alright.
The farmers meeting called for
last Saturday at the Opera house was
a dead failure, less than a half dozen
farmers responding to the call. The
object of the call was to get the
farmers together to talk over the
marketing of their grain—wheat in
particular—and to determine whether
or not it would be advisable to erect
a farmers’ elevator in time to handle
the next crop. Just why the farmers
of any community should fail to re-
spond by their presence under a call
of tills kind is more than we can tell.
There is no one to be benefited by or
through such a meeting but them-
selves, and if it will not pay them to
meet and exchange ideas on matters
of this kind, then we are sadly mista-
ken as to what would be the proper
course for them to pursue In looking
after their own best interests. Meet-
ings oftthis kind are gotten up neither
for political nor personal gain on the
part of any individual, but for the
good of the whole farming communi-
ty, and we yet want to see a represen-
tative meeting of the farmers held at
Manchester for the purpose of talking
this matter over fully in a friendly,
business-like way. We want to see
the farmer get all out of his grain
that there is in it for him. Should
another meeting be called will you
Thousands of Republicans through-
out the country are coming out and
denouncing the trusts. Why cannot
the Medford Patriot and Wakita
Herald do likewise? Come, boys; we
hardly believe you would lose your ap-
pointive jobs under the party in
power if you were to be honest with
yourselves and your patrons in this
—The Journal is negotiating for ad-
ditional material with which to print
a larger newspaper. The importance
of the paper as an advertising medium
has become so well known both at
home and abroad that we are crowded
all the time for reading matter space
in order to care for the advertising
matter which has almost doubled in
volume since adding our new engiue,
power press and new dress of type.
We ask our readers to bear with the
crowded condition of our columns for
a time and everything will come
around alright. Our intention is to
make the Journal a 6-column 8-page
paper, and if that will not give us
room we will add to it until we do
get room for all the advertising and
news matter that comes our way.
Watching Over f
There is not a pair of eyes I tit with glasses but what I take a
personal interest in the case. A full record of the case is kept and
m the future I make note of all changes—thus having records of
lirst condition and improvements, step by step.

When you build up EYES the whole system is Improved.
Why? Because you do not see with the eye but with the brain
and when eyes are wrong in construction it affects the brain and
the brain controls the body. This is why children are nervous

The daring bank robbery at Burrton,
Kansas, last week and the capture
of all five of the bandits tjje following
day by the members of the Anti-
Horse Thief Association and citizens
in general on an island in the Arkan-
sas river, speaks well for that associa-
tion and should encourage all law-
abiding citizens to become members.
The Hutchinson News in its write-up
of the robbery says that “when the
alarm was given in Burrton that
there had been a robbery the officers
of the Anti-Horse Thief Association
were notified. It was but a short
time until all of the members had
turned out and were equipped with
all sorts of guns. They were in march-
ing order in a short time and Burrton
looked like a regiment was in town.
There were more than a hundred of
these men and they continued the
hunt until the men had been brought
in. The men scattered so as to cover
as much ground as possible and there
was no chance for the bandits to get
away at any time. Bosses of the mem-
bers of the association from Bentley.
Mt. Hope, Valley Center and Sedg-
wick were scouring the country in a
few hours and every other- thing was
neglected until the work in hand was
all over. It was one of the most
thorough criminal hunts in Kansas
for years and the thoroughness with
which all of the details were carried
out proves that this organization is a
