—Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Ford, of
Anthony, visited here Sunday with
Rumors are busy picking out
members of President-elect Wilson’s
official household. There seems to
be no doubt whatever, that William
J. Bryan can be secretary of state
and, therefore, premier of the Wil-
son cabinet if he so desires. A
great many of Mr. Bsyan’s friends
are urging him to accept this high
position, and there seems to be
some ground for hope that he will
do so. Mr. Bryan is probably
better fitted for the position than
any other man in America. He
has twice travelled around the
world, and has visited Central and
South America countries, and has
in other ways eminently qualified
himself to deal with matters affect-
ing our foreign relations. Further-
more, many critics of Mr. Bryan
have charged him with being a
'dreamer” and theorist and there-
fore an impractical man. By ac-
cepting the office of secretary of
state he would be in a position to
show that he is a statesman of a
very practical sort, and one who
can do things.
Reports continue coming into
Washington, New York, Chicago
and other leading centers, indicat-
ing that there is a greater demand
for labor in nearly all lines than
can be supplied. This is a degree
of prosperity that has been seldom
attained in this country. When
the condition of affairs is such that
there are more jobs than three are
men to fill them, then we have an
assurance that prosperity i s
actually present. The election of
Mr. Wilson seems to have had a
most beneficial effect on business
in all parts of the country.
Congress has again got into
action, and if it takes care of all
the business before it, this will be
the busiest session that the Capital
There is too much on the calendar
and far, far too much in committee
waiting a chance to be put on the
It is possible that the work done
by Congress will be very important
and valuable to the country.
-One of ttie tinest, winter rains
that ever visited ibis part of the
country began falling at about .'5
o’clock Sunday morning and con-
tinued for nearly five hours. Most of
this time the rain was coming down
in considerable volume, about an
inch or mode of water failing. While
the wheat was in no great need of
moisture, still t tie rain did not come
amiss, as the moisture will be stored
away in the subsoil for future use
From all reports coming to this cflice
from the country, we judge that the
wheat in this vicinity is in better con_
dition than it has been at this time
of year for several years, and with
favorable conditions next spring,
Grant county will produce another of
her old time record breaking crods.
— On another page of this lsfue w;il
be found a half-page advertisement
for toe Simmons-Warnock Store
While the advertisement is more of
| an invitation to the public to visit,
that store, than a catalogue of cut
prices, still all who acjepr, the invita-
tion and go to Simmons & Warnock
will fiod the bargains there in abun-
dance. They have just put in the
swellest line of winter goods you ever
saw, and if you are among the few
who have not been visiting this store,
you should step in and see what they
have to offer.
But it is not likely that every-
thing will be cleared away in pre-
paration for the special session,
which everyone expects to be called
to follow closely on the heels of the
short session now just started.
—The Shriners were treated to a
sumptuous repast last Thursday even-
ing at Tom Jolly’s restaurant, the
feast being arranged and spread be-
fore them by Mesdames H. W. Ren-
ean, J. M. Simmons and Mrs. E. A
Watkins. It has long been a custom
for the Shriners to be given sucti a
feast at Thanksgiving time, and these
ladies saw to It that the custom was
properly observed this year.

Editors Dream Is Realized.
One of W. E. Blackburn’s dreams
is coming true.
He has always desired to have a
small farm near a good town, a
ploce where he could raise chickens,
garden truck, fruit, grapes, flowers,
have his own milk, butter, butter-
milk, strawberries and cream and
where he could conduct experiments
Recently he purchased the Tom
Jones eighty acres south of Anth-
ony. He will move on the land
next spring. The house will be re-
modeled or a new one built. He
will be where he lias always wanted
to be, doing what he has long
dreamed of doing.
And here, at the farm house, he
will be able to entertain the people
from the agricultural college and
specialists in agriculture and horti-
culture and to show them the
actul demonstrations o f certain
theories he holds about soil and the
adaptability of certain crops, trees,
fruits to Harper county conditions.
We congratulate Mr. Blackburn.
What a relief from the grind of the
newspaper office, the complaints of
readers, subscribers, borrowers of
the newspaper! What a refuge
from the insistent politician and
the man who would get out a
county directory! What a change
from the red of a newspaper bank
book to the black figures of a
farmer’s bank account! What a
life, out there in the open, among
the trees and flowers, where the
alfalfa gives of! fragrance and the)
cackling hen announces new arrivals
of fresh eggs and the hogs grunt
with satisfaction, and the young
calves tug at the ropes or skip over
the greening prairies, and the birds
carol, and in "October” the yellow
punkin nestles in the shocked corn
and the quail calls sharply to her
