Buu Hi..rio.l Sooi.tJ TopeVa Mews. VOL. IX NO 18. MEADE, KANSAS, THURSDAY, MAY 7,1908. 4. D. WEHRLE, Editor and Puuihi. Meade County, Kansas. When the facts about Meade County are known, one wonders how any man can be content to stay in the East and struggle along, renting and getting in arrears all the time. This attractive county is situated near the extreme southwest corner of Kansas. It has an area of 975 square miles, giving 624,000 acres. , Its population is considerably over iive thousand. The surface is rolling prairie, precisely like some of the best land in Illinois, broken in the southwestern portion by bluffs and some rough land. It is crossed diagonally by Crooked Creek, an impor tant source of water, and also by the Cimarron River. These streams, together with the many, unfailing artesian wells, furnish an abundant water supply. The former are used for the irrigation of the alfalfa crops and the later for other crops and for general purposes. It is an interes ting sigh...

If one takes the pains to investigate his political actions in the past twenty years and ascertain the facts I think it will be found that Mr. Leland has been very prominent in fighting old soldiers candidates for various offices. Ac- ' cording to my best recollection he has opposed the various old soldiers hereafter mentioned using ail of his personal influence and that of his machine whenever it was in power against them. Leland fought the nomination of Farmer A. W. Smith for the Re publican nomination for Governor and then after he was nominated if 'he received...

TLbe fiieabe County IRevvs- ToHk D. Wehrle, Editor. The Strange Case of Sena- toiL6ng. By W. A. White. One of the most human things in this vjprld of errors is to dislike the men with whom we disagree. Though the matters in disagreearea of the wide context of lite, and the matters of mutual agreement may include a vast range of the things which should unite men, still let a disagreement arise, however minor, as com pared with two men's general characters and behold; enemies. Now, enemies are liable to be unfair, and certain to be unkind, and no real truth may come out of a matter wherein the spirit of the discussion is based upon unfairness and unkindness. So, if at times there seems to be thrown over this narrative hereinafter set down too much of excusing, or too much of charity, let it be set down here and now that these lines about Senator Long are written by one who for nearly twenty, years has esteemed not Representative Long, not Senator Long, but Chester Long, as a friend; b...
