Purchasers o Christmas gifts are
giving' evidence of discrimination by
Tiding the "shop early" slogan ad-
opted' by the retailed throughout the
country.. They are crowding" the
commercial establishments getting
telr pick of the best exhibits pre
paring ahead dMIme to forestall thd
rush which must follow If thpusands
i6 not do their buying now.
The Hbdp early" suggestion is
pleasing to the merchants who have
to deal with customers and who want
to glvo the very best service. A num
1or gave expression to their oplnldns
Monday and not one bill that urged
the importance and advisability of
'buying Christmas supplies In ample
time for careful selection and sure
delivery before the great day.
"'It's a godsend to the help and to

Tho. plan of buying early has been
receiving an added Impetus each year
and jw'e' are pleased with thV begin-
xlngfof this season's hojl lay trade."
"Tie people have a better assort-
ment from which to make tbelr selec-
tion when the shop oarly habit Is
formed" said another. "There are

we -cannot give him the same serr' p

because the trade comes In greater
volumes than we can handle In a
personal way; as we now handle It

-"SUls a fine thing" Insisted one of
our Jewetrymen. "People who skbp

Kanss City Stock Yards Dec. :i.
The HVe steck market has suffered
another disturbance this week la" the
release of man ycountles In the var-
ious states from the foot and mouth
disease quarantine. Iowa is partic-
ipating a flood ot hogs Into Sioux
City Omaha and St. -Joseph and
Illinois and Wisconsin are sending
cattle hogs and sheep to Chicago.
The break In the cattle prices this
Week which effects the upper grade
ot the steers Is mor the result et a
moral Influence than actual for the
recelupts have net yet become ex
cessive. But tho buyers knbw that
offerings this week at all of tho mar
kets will foot up heavy tbtals and
they recognise tht sas a good chance
to break the prices. Receipts today
are only about 12 thousand head.
Good fed steers are half a dollar
lower this Week some cases more
beSt steers here ystrday $9.40 to
$9.80 and th best sold In the fore
noon today at $9.26 to $9.60.
Butcher grades aro about steady
although' good cows were slow sotler
toaay. uanner cattle are strong ind
some sales are ten to fifteen higher
this week and stockers and feeders
are steady and firm. Demand from
the country however is more 'or
yearlings and twos than for heavy
feeders which puts the warmed up
short fed steors in a bad class on the
Killers say that the beef market
Is bad due to the warm weather and

season of the year. When all
quarantines are lifted and the move-
ment of live stock is unrestricted
there will be pome demand In the
demand Tor fleshy feedrs but. no
great revival in the cattle prices Is
apt to come before the holidays.
January has never been no'tcd for
high prices for finished cattle and
feeders are In a quandary with coin
mission men unable to give ti'iem
mifch comforting advice.
When the flood of the quarantine
cattle subsides and the colder weath
er comes conditions should improva.
. In the hog trade the market is a
striking contrast to that of a week
ago. Receipts aro 24 thousand hers
today but all the markets that are
geting stock from the heretofore .bot-
tled up districts are. overloaded. Ev-
en Cleveland from when killers sent
orders for hogs recently wires today
that they have receipts of hogs and

reason for tho closing of the shop3.

Governor Klect Williams will not
8tad for? Kxpeaslvo Frills at tiio
. State's Cost.
So far as tho recent conference bo-
tween membors Of tho 16elslatur
ana Oovernor-Elect Williams has de-
veloped plans it is seen that the coin
ing Inaugural ceremonies will be im
presslve and yet simple. There will
probably be an elaborate Inaugural
ball but U will fcot be f inancod by the
state. Neither will tbero be an ex-
penditure of the state's money to
bring the militia to the capital r
tne inaugural ceremonies nor for any
other purposes connected with the
Induction of new officials Into office.
All the officials will take the oath
of office together and thoro will bo
impressive proceedings but It will ho
a Democratic affair to the fullest ex-
tent. The Introduction of Judge WR-
ttams and his fellow-otriclals Into of-
fice will recall the time when Th'os.
Jefferson set7n example 'for slmpllc
Ity and economy which has never
since been followed In Washington.
The state Will not be asked to ex-
pend one cent for the inauguration.
If the legislature should decide to
make an appropriation for that pur
poco It would doubtless be vetoed by
tho new governor. The legislature
known this and there will be no ap-
propriation. If thls Inaugural sea
son had not come at the time of dis-
tress and warfaro In Europe and the
unsettlod business conditions in this
country it is possible that tho entire
National Guard would havo boon
brought to tho capital and the cere-
monies would havo been elaborate
However it Is known that Judge" Wil
Hams is in iaVor of 'rigid economy
simplicity and attention to duty tnd
ho might not have allowed such dis
play even under better conditions iif
the country. As it is tho fnaugiira

death angel came.
TTho funeral services were conduct--d

t' two o'clock. The remains wero

Kendall's Store Robbed
Somo time during tho night last
Thursday Kendall's clothing1 store
was robbed of about a hundred dol-
lars worth of men's clothing and
the cash register which was left op-
en was rolloved of about three dol-
lars and elghty-flvo cents in change.
Entrance was made by boring a hole
In tho back door removing a panel
and then lifting the heavy lock and
bolt. The articles stolen consisted
ot men's suits underclothes over-
coat shirts etc. No clue hag been
found to the thief.
Burn Grass Says Agent
To the Farmers of Bryan county:
All the fields that cannot bo plow-
ed this winter and all tho fence linos
and roadways and every other place
where there is any grass or rubbish
should be burned out jo as to de-
stroy the chinch bugs in their win-
ter quarters. The chinch bugs har-
bor especially In buches of grass and
It is up to the farmers to destroy
them in the manner abo? a described.
Don't. wait until next season and
try to kill them after they get scat-
tered over your fields.
Every land owner should encour-
age this practice by setting the ex-
ample. "An ounce of prevention is
worth a pound of cure."
