A Polk county farmer on being inter
viewed about the extra session of the

purpose, the merchants thioughout
the state would Immediately refuse to
give credit, and would force collections.
They would be compelled to do this
because Iheir creditors throughout the
East would take fright at the Intention
of parsing such a law and would crowd
them. The result would be ruinous in
the extreme. Governor Pennoycr
knows well enough that no such law
will I passed and lie has done this all
for effect. I think if you could hear

hear him chuckle over the matter'"

Monday evening, a young man named
Mel DuBtiu, and very well known In
this county, overtook Miss Lizule
Green just this side of Monument.
Both were on horseback and being
well acquainted chatted along till Miss
Green reached the lane leading to the
residence formerly owned by Jack
Hinton. When Miss Gicun siurinl to
go up the lane, Dustin called to her to
stop, saying he wanted to speak to
her. Jumping off his horse he ran up
to Miss Green and dragged her off the
horse, accomplishing his base designs. .
The young lady then dragged herself
within hailing distance of the house,
when a young man came out and
helped her in. It Is snid that D.islla
bus been arressted and that there Is
much excitement over the affair.
The West Side, of Independence,
figured it out this way: If there Is
any ma n independent of hard times It
is the farmer who has a good farm and
is out of debt. He produces what
people must have and when tie sells it
he gets just whut kind of money he
wants or else he keeps his goods. He
can Keep tneni, too, tor tuero are
many waj'B he can turn them into
money. Take wheat foil an example:
If the price does not suit hlin, he can
have it ground Into flour, and he and
h - neighbors can eat it. It that will
not work he can feed if to stock of
some kind and drive the slock lo
market, and thus be nble to realize a
a fair price. The merchant, the man
ufacturer and the laboring man Is en
tirely dependent on selling which he
has. A stagnation lu business eflects
them disastrously, but has very little
effect on the farmer from henrsay.
