THE BARTON COUNTY DEMOCRAT, W. C. STOKE, Editor ft Proprietor. GREAT BEND. - . KANSAS. CURRENT COMMENT. Lord Dcxkavex has decided that yacht Valkyrie shall not visit America. Gexeral Phiupovitch, the Russian conqueror of Bosnia, died in Prague. Bohemia, recently of apoplexy. The wheat harvest in Austria Hungary is 6aid to be somewhat defi cient. There will be but little for ex port. Owing to the small supply of raw sugar obtainable the great refinery at Greenock. Scotland, has been shut down. A fatal disease among horses is prevalent in the vicinity of Montgom ery, Ala. The malady is called albu- minaria. The statement that oil has been found in Chicago will doubtless as tound many people, but 'nevertheless It is said to be true. Judge William Bullock, who pre sented the first bill for the establish ment of public schools in Kentucky, died recently in Shelbyville, aged eighty-two.

Darkness had touched bis eyes, the seal sof silence Wa on his lips, and on their sister sense The waves of sound, full-freighted, beat with Pathetic impotence. With other 9tricken ones on whom the burden Of blindness lay. he livedo through speech and sound They reached their unseen world; by narrowest limit His life was bound. But skill and kindness, clasping hands with science, Within his barren life had made a rift And the barred senses to his slender finjrers Had brought their gift. Though dwelling in a realm so strange and lonely. He had learned something, through their simple art. Of the great world in whose wide joy and beauty tie had no part. Standing amidst them on one happy morning,' . Wot generous hands the glad embassador, I cried: "Dear God, what hare these hapless children To jrive thanks for?" "Ask them," the teacher said; so in that lan guage Thai blind eyes read I ...

The bat tle had waged all day, and the weary and wounded lay down with the dead and dying1 to snatch a moment's repose, if haply they might. ' . One gets used to almost every thing ' in . war savoring of hardship, and reck- . lessness, 1 was go ing to say, though that may not be the best . term to use. But, for some reason, I found my nerves last night, and could not sleep. ' . The pain in my temples, the parched con- Cition of my throat, and the incessant moaning of a comrade near me, together with the memory .of an incident of the morning, made me sick with a nervous dread. For once in my life I felt that I was a coward.' The moon was just peeping through the trees, and I went over to the wounded man to see what I could do for him. 'Water 1 water !" he murmured, as I bent down to speak to him. Yes," I said; "I will get you some, And-1 started for the river, a half-mile back. - ' " "" ' " v...

The early planted corn is the best this year as it usually is. John Boyle, of Albion township, lost a rick of rye containing about 150 bushels on Friday night by a stroke of lightning. Will Barton have a fair this fall? If she does, we'll wager a cookie that the north half of the county will take the blue ribbon on most of the crop cereals. An ice cream festival was given by the Ladies' Aid Society at Highland school house, Wheatland township, on Tuesday evening. The ladies cleared about $19 and all present enjoyed the occasion. Those gentle soaking rains of Sat urday and Sunday morning greatly refreshed vegetation and will make good corn in many fields. Fields of corn ...
