The National Republican convention is to meet in Chicago just one mcnth from to day. The Sentt?tel bbs,b the Ellis county jail is overcrowded by ten inmates.

From the New York Sun. The practical failure of the potato crop in the United States during the present season has already led to large importations from Europe. The returns of the Bureau of Agriculture, calculated up to Oct. 1, places the decline in pro duction, under the average, at 29,000,000 bushels. The cause of the decline has been the long prevailing drought during the fall in Illinois, Michigan, Indiana, and Ohio, which has stunted the growth of the tuber in these States to such an extent that the gross yield per acre is only one third of the average. On the olher hand, the amount of rain in the Eastern seaboard during the early part of the season caused many of the half grown potatoes to rot in the ground be fore coming to maturity. The number of sacks received from Great B...

Ever since tlie notorious Benders, of Kansas, disappeared from their home itead in 1873, leaving their garden in the condition of a private cemetery, curiosity has been rife as to what became of them. Many stories have been told, only to be contradicted, about the family being living or dead at some place in the Far West, but the following statement, published by the St. Louis Globe-Democrat, has an appearance of plausibility. The narrator is Major T. E. Hicks, ex pioneer, Kansas free soiler, postmaster and prospector, and now a justice of the ' peace at Americus, Kan. The story was obtained from an old friend who was dying, and the "Colonel" alluded to was Colonel Yorke, who some years ago made a sensation of national magnitude by rising in his place in the Kansas Legislature and making some state ments, accompanied by a show of green backs, which prevented the re-electi...
