cents and for the second group 1888 to 1902 7Gi cents As will be seen the price has averaged lower in late years be cause the buyers are better organized to pound the farmers price down to the very lowest limit and yet not drive them out of business At no time in re cent years have production and consumption been live factors in the wheat market until 1901 when farmers were taught by the

claim credit in its platform we fail to discover it There are some things how ever which rightfully belong to it that it for some rqason overlooked One of these is the condition of the pctoilice depart niont which everyone knows has been reeking with corruption for years Another is the frauds in the land office department Another is the theft of millions of dollars annually from the government by the railroads Another is the open acceptance of bribes by republican congress men and senators Another is the dissatisfaction stirred up among the colored race by the unwarranted interference of their hero and god There are a great many of these things that have been overlooked by the republicans and we insist on their taking the credit of them all For a great many good things of the earth the republi can party is in no wise responsible notwithstanding the asser tions of their platform writers to the contr 1ryinfact a great great many but this has seem ingly notdeterred

tho eagle that was captured lust Week and later bought by Leonard Frost proprietor of Frosts restaurant The eagle was placed in the enclosure at the depot and shortly thereafter the rooster was seen to try over the fence Fearing that he would be killed Mr Frost at once drove the rooster out of the yard but he went hack They re mained together that night in peace and when the eagle was fed in the morning the rooter partook of his breakfast Since their first introduc tion they have dwelt together in peaco null harmony and the eagle although a largo and apparently vicious Npue seems to take the roosters presence as s a matter of course The eagle meas ures six feet from tip to tip and is of the bald variety They may be seen at any time apparently enjoying each others society The only solution seems to be that the eagle has an aversion to chicken meat =DEATH TO CmGOEIfS carupinJrthatpaiutnlParacamphduggerbitesApplyitiniiiipnmtnalongwith4 Staucillpaxtor it Sunday morning anduight Sunday
