—J. W. Vest of Pond Creek, a
pioneer citizen of Grant county, died
very suddenly at his home on Aug. 27.
The Vidette last week in mentioning
Mr. Vest’s death said: “The cause
of his demise was inflamatlon of the
bowels supposed to have been caused
from sw'allowing a fish bone one day
last week. He commenced complain-
ing last Thursday, but didn’t take to
his bed until Friday, when Dr. Thom-
as was cal led and, after examination,
decided that there was an infiamation
of the stomach and treatment
for 'this trouble seemed to have
desirable results. It was at first
thought that he would recover but
Tuesday he commenced to get worse,
and last evening the attending physi-
cians gave up hope of his recovery
The end came this morning shortly
after midnight. Mr. Vest was one of
the pioneers of the county, having
made the race into the Strip and se
cured a homestead south of Nashville
which he owned up to the time of his
death. Later he,came to Pond Creek
and bought property, and he and his
wife have since made this their home.
He leaves a wife and a number of
children to mourn his death. W. T.
Vest, a son, is one of the prominent
merchants of town, and lie and R. W.

Reo Automobiles are made in three
styles—Touring Car, Roadster and
Runabout. The cut above shows the
Roadster, one of the swiftest, most
durable, easiest riding and cheapest,
machines, all things considered, that
Is on the market today. The Roadster
has an emergency seat behind, a
pretty box when doubled up, but it
opens up a cushioned seat and four
people can ride as well as two.
In the Reo Touring Car, where
you want to take the whol6 family,
there is nothing that beats them.
There are five of these cars in daily
use in Manchester, and they do their
work to perfection.
. Again, these cars are within the
reach of most people in this part of
the country. It is a mistaken idea
that people must be rich to own and
operate an automobile. You brought
no wealth with you when you came to
this world, and you cannot take any
away. When it comes to operating
and caring for one of these machines,
I would rather have the skill of an
experienced farmer, as a general rule,
Mian that of the business man in town,
and there is no reason whatever why
many our farmers should own automo-
biles. A large per cent of r.hem could
own autos if they only thought so,
and their heads are level enough to
run them. To get the best results
and the longest life, they require the
same care that any other machine re-
quires, and properly cared for and
properly used they will last for years.
I have taken the agency at Manch-
ester for these, and other makes of
cars (though 1 consider the Reo super-
ior to any other make) and will make
theclosest possible price to any and all
who contemplate buying.

Kansas City Stock Yards, Aug 31.
Cattle receipts last week were 73,-
000 head, including 11,000 calves, and
the market held up good. Corn fed
cattle are even more scarce than
formerly, and are selling 35 to 40
cents higher than two weeks ago,
while grass steers and cows met a
good demand and sold steady to a
little lower In some cases. The sup-
ply today is 33,000 head, Including
2000 calves, market strong on steers,
top $7.25, steady to 10 lower on cows,
and 25 cents higher on calves, stockers
and feeders steady. The run of
quarantines is slacking up, and they
will cut less figure in the competi-
tion from now on. Colorado, the Pan-
handle country and New (Mexico are
shipping freely and the offering con-
tain an increasing proportion of
stockers and feeders. Astute traders
assert that feeding operations will be
restricted this year by high priced
corn, and packers are said to believe
there will be a shortage of fed cattle
early in the winter, which will have
its influence in a better reception to
range offerings right along, in an
effort to forestall an extravagant
range of prices on fed natives. Fed
steers bring from $5 75 to$7.35, grass
steers $4.25 to $5 00 yearlings and
heifers in good demand, up to 96.40,
grass cows and heifers a shade easier
tfian last week, at 92 80 to $3,60, can-
ners $2.25 to 92 75 bulls 92 35 to 93 50,
top veals today 96.75 heavier calves
94 00 to 95 00. Stockers and feeders
are selling freely on a basis 50 cents
per cwt. below a years age, stockers
93.00 to $4 40, feeders 93 75 to 94.75
nog runs are moderate, and prices
are advancing last few days. Supply
today Is 3000 head, market 5 to 10
higher, top 96.92 4 bulk 96 55 to 99.85.
Packers do not pay the price freely,
contending that provisions market is
inbad shape, but the light runs are
forcing prices up, although total re-
ceipts for August show a gain here of
26.000 head, or 16 per cent over same
month a year ago. More trashy stuff
has been included this year in August
than last, which may tell In the re-
SD Dr. J. Harry Gay.
