Good News For Liberal It is rumored aronnd the West em Union office here, that the new uptown office of the Western Un ion will have several changes which will be good news for the people of the town. Information has been received here to the ef fect that the new office which will be moved to the Taylor Drug Store the first of December is to have three operators, which will mean that we will have telegraph service here at every hour of the day. The wires will all be cut in here, and this will make Liberal a relay station, for all east and west messages which are sent over the wires in this town.

n BROOMCORN V vv w vvvvv Tho past week has seen a slight recovery on the broomcorn mar ket of the United States. Wichi ta reports a good demand for brush of the better grades, with the price ranging from $135 to $200. In the Areola, III , district, a crop sold last week for $200, but it is said that a number of the produc ers there have not yet received a bid for their crops. It is reported that there are numerous contlict iug opinions as to the condition of the western market, one day re porting a break and the next day an advance. There has been but little brush of the (irst quality marketed here during the past week, and it is dillicult to say what would have been bid for the choice hurl. The demand has been bettor and there are more buyers active on the market more than to weoks ago. From the interior of Hungary comes the report that the farmers are'holding their crop for $160. This will at least tend to put off the importation of broomcorn un til all of tho domestic crop is mar...
