Well, you just go to the convention, possibly somebody will think of you and place your name in nomination; then if the convention has confidence in your honesty, ability and integrity, you will get votes enough to elect you. Otherwise the number of votes will be small. That is the way affairs are managed in the alliance. Those who put up jobs or work schemes1 and seek the office get left.

CHAPTER XVII. Co ntixtjid. And when the fury of the tornado was spent it Seemed quite natural to Frank that the half-dozen figures of men he knew were enemies, who had been crouching by his side, should glide away into the forest without a parting shot. It was a difficult task to make then way over the fallen trees to the spot where they had left their horses, but they reached it at last, to find the snort ing", trembling beasts unharmed, save one that lay struck dead by lightning-. "Push on, men," Frank cried. "Let us get out of this infernal wood before the last glimmer of daylight fails us." Luckily the sharpshooters were prac ticed horsemen, for the debris of the storm made their ride too much like a steeple-chase to be practicable to men whose seats in their saddles were not firm.

M'KINLEY WORSHIP. A Striking Instance of InlamUm In Amef lean Politics. To people who are outside of the re publican party, and are in no danger of being compromised by the result, the 6teady extension of what may be called McKinley worship in that party is a matter of interesting study not devoid of a certain irreverent amusement. There has bef-m nothing- like it in mod ern times except the movement that produced the ghost dances of the past winter among the northwestern Sioux. Perhaps it is of some significance that this peculiar form of superstition gains a foothold among parties and races in which the intellectual and moral forcea are rudimentary either from arrested development or from degeneration ow ing to persistent nonuse. At a certain stage in the upward or downward course of the human mind the tendency to see in some actual or imaginav per son the embodiment of the qualities needed to bring about either salvation from threatened evils or restoration to lost states of sati...

TY DEMOCRA! THE LARGEST CIRCULATION IN THE COUNTY. PUBLISHED IN THE PEOPLE. GQUN OFFICIAL PAPER OP BARTON COUNTY VOLUME VIII. GREAT BEND, KANSAS, THURSDAY, AUGUST 6, 1891. ' 4 NUMBER 19.. KDITOEIAL COMMENT. The Reno county republican conven tion which met last week failed to re solve in favor of the prohibitory law, the first time a convention of that political faith has ever done so in tkat county since the passage of the meas ure. We believe that a meeting of the democratic central committee of this county should be called at an early date. There are bright prospects before the democracy, aud there will be no lack of enthusiasm when the time comes for democrats to assert thimelves. Rkpiiesentative republicans from all over the state held a meeting in Topeka last week, behind barred doors. It has leaked out that a large number of the faithful were in for giving prohi bition the grand go-by, and predicted overwhelming defeat throughout the state unless that was done. Others, however...

The music of the distant sea Mow murmurs through the balmy air, No longer butterfly and bee Flit round the flowers here and there. The first white star Is in the sky, The hoptoad rests beneath the weed, And in a heap The cow's asleep Upon the bosom of the mead. , The bat is circling wild and free, The frog is croaking loud and long. Mine ear, methinks, discovers the Mosquito's rude, unhallowed song. I hear the shrieking whip-poor-will That keeps it up with Spartan spunk. While on yon pane, A wild refrain. The June bug goes 'kerplunk ! kerplunk !1 The banner of the mellow corn Now ripples like a silver lake Beneath the rising moon, whose bom Keeps your infernal dog awake.

Mr. Piatt has not interfered in anything of the sort since I became secretary of the treasury. I fancy the feeling between the two gentlemen was of long standing.

THE 'DEMOCRAT. The people's party candidates will now be getting a bustle on them, as tfiey have only a week and two days in which to work up delegations at the primaries, which occur on the 22d. But, excuse us, we have not stated it quite right; the offices are abroad in the land bunting up the delegations. As TO the Kentucky election, the final count shows still better for the democrats than was reported last week. The new constitution which was fought by the republicans and people's party, won by 75,000 to 100,000 majority; the democratic majority on state officers averaged 35,000; the senate will stand: democrats 27, republicans 10, people's 1; the house: democrats 69, republicans 17, people's 12 and independent demo crat 1. Most of the democratic legis lators are farmers and will work for the interests of their fellow laborers.
