Hon. S. Ogden has not fully recovered from his severe and protracted illness prior to the election, but is able to be to town quite frequently and is steadily improving in appearance. We understand he will soon commence the erection of an office building and residence combined on his business lot on central south Main street.

It is very easy to distinguish the pupil who was "out last night." The boy or girl who is given to attending parties, socials, etc., preceding school days, are noticably dull in their studies. Why not confine their parties to Friday evenings? One evening in the week is certainly enough for the average school boy or girl.

There will be a Christmas tree, also an interesting program, on Christmas eve, at Lake View school house. Everybody is invited to come and see Santa Claus.

An application for the pardon of Frank Lewis, the Waverly bank robber, was heard yesterday by the board of pardons. It is thought that Lewis will be pardoned. While he was convicted for the murder of H. P. Ingleman at the time of the bank robbery, it is thought by many that the shot that killed Ingleman was fired by his partner. Since Lewis has been confined in the penitentiary he has been a very obedient prisoner and has never made any trouble to the prison officials.

From a dispatch from Kankakee, Ills., we should judge that Capt. John G. Taylor, formerly of our city, was financially broke. The sheriff of Kankakee county has attached all of Taylor's stock including Joe Patchen, the famous pacer, on a $11,000 indebtedness.

In Trouble
The Chetopa Democrat contained the following item last week, which shows that the New York boys brought here are a hard lot: "Another one of the New York boys is in trouble. This time it is Lawrence Charles Craig, or McLain (he gives both names). He was brought out about a year ago and left with a family near Burlington. On November 23 he ran away and started for Coffeyville. Last Friday he put in an appearance at the Ferch boys ranch northeast of Chetopa, and claimed to be hunting work. The Ferches concluded that they wanted just such a boy to chore about and assist them, as they were batching, and they made arrangements with the boy. He staid over night and seemed to be satisfied until Sunday afternoon, when the Ferch brothers went to church. The boy wanted to go with them but they requested him to remain at the house. The boys did not return until late at night, when they discovered that the boy was gone. They began to investigate and found that a bridle and saddle was missing. They then went to the stables and there they discovered that a horse was also gone. They immediately started in search of the boy and horse, but failed to find him at any of the neighbors. Monday morning J. M. Morgan started to town to see if he could hear anything of the boy. When near the old Lamb place, he came upon the boy riding the horse. He took him in charge and brought him on to town and turned him over to the officers. He had an examination before Justice Frye, and was held for trial at the February term of court. When searched it was found that he had taken about all from the house that he could carry away. We had a talk with the boy at the city jail, and he said that he had twice been sent to the reform school in New York for stealing. We hope that the coming legislature will take some steps to prevent the shipping of these children into the state. New York is better able to take care of her paupers than we are, and besides we have criminals enough of our own.

Many swine growers claim to have derived great benefit from feeding charcoal or charred cobs to swine. The effects in some instances are almost magical, and it is believed that many swine breeders have thus kept disease away. Those who have wood pastures can easily supply charred logs to which the swine have free access. One who supplies his hogs with charred cobs says that if the cobs are raked up in a windrow in the feeding lot and some dry straw scattered over them it will char the cobs easily. When burned enough, scatter the cobs with a rake, and the fire will be extinguished; sprinkle salt on them and when cool, let in the pigs. He claims that they will leave corn for it. What do our swine growers have to say on this subject?

The greatest holiday attraction that was ever billed for Burlington will be here on Wednesday, Dec. 30. The world famous Tennessee Jubilee Singers will delight our people. We predict a crowded house to greet them.

Everything indicates that there will be a settlement of the water works case inside of a few weeks. Since the settlement of the Race case with the Burlington National Bank it has put a new phase on the suite, and it strengthens the case of the city against the water works company to the extent that it is now only a question of law whether the city is or can be held responsible for anything after the date of the time the judgment was rendered against the city in the district court of Woodson county.

The Memorial service on Sunday last by Martha Chapter No. 73, O. E. S. in Masonic hall, was largely attended. The ceremony is very impressive and appropriate. The services were held in memory of J. W. Hamman, Mrs. E. A. Stevens and John W. Williams.

Last week's Republican contained the tax roll for 1896, and shows how the tax is divided. The total amount was $122,708.55. Of this amount $15,293.49 goes to the state. Think of it. Over $100,000 taken from the people to defray the expenses of Coffey county and for our part of the state tax. This is too much money to take from the people each year for tax, and they have grounds to kick. No wonder that there is general complaint everywhere in Kansas that taxes are too high, that they make it hard and almost impossible to hold property. It should be the patriotic duty of every tax-payer to co-operate in the endeaver to have taxes reduced. The legislature should give the people some wholesome laws this winter. Worthless boards should be cut off, salaries reduced, the office of adjutant general abolished, and a number of judicial districts consolidated, and a lot of judges let out, and a cutting down of expense in every department of the state institutions where it can be done. There are a lot of whothless boards and offices that should be abolished. They were created for fellows who were unable to make a living. The time has come when if it is necessary for the state to take care of a lot of politicians on account of their inability to make a living, to send them to the poor farm in the county in which they live.

Many were the sad hearts and deep was the grief of hundreds of persons who assembled at the Methodist Episcopal church at two o'clock last Tuesday as a tribute to the beautiful life of Mrs. O. M. Ranney. Out people have probably not has a more sad death in this community. A bright young life full of cheer and ambition had been brought to a close on this earth. A life of sweet disposition and many virtues has been cut down in the blosoming of its usefulness and transferred to a heavenly home to add lustre to the gems gathered there. The sympathies of our entire people go out to those bereaved, but the sweet peace of God will comfort them in their saddest hour. Myrtle was a true Christian, kind, considerate and help full to all about her. Rev. W. H. Mulvaney preached a touching and comforting sermon from the text, "Because I live, ye shall live also." The many beautiful floral offerings were but another evidence of the great esteem for the one departed. The Epworth League, of which she was an active member, had charge of the service and attended in a body. The Sons of Veterans attended as a society and their quartet sang some sweet selections. The pall bearers were Messrs. Bela Cogshall, Ira Hamman, James Hay, E. Williams, Louis Bordenkircher and Buy Batdorf. Misses Maude Batdorf, Anna Kiger, May Kinley, Ruby Scott, Eva Rudrauff and Rose Kiger acted as honorary pall bearers. Myrtle Shaffer was born June 24, 1875, at Varsailles, Ills. She came to Kansas with her parents and lived at Hartford and Gridley until after the death of her father, Dr. Shaffer, and then removed to Burlington with her mother. She was married to Oscar M. Ranney, June 4, 1896. She passed peacefully away, Sunday, Dec. 20, 1896. The sweet memories of her life will be over with us.
At Rest
Friday morning last the sad news of the death of one of Burlington's oldest and most respected citizens, Charles Puffer, was announced. For several months he had been in poor health, yet up at a few days before his death he was able to be out and around, and most every day spent a few hours at his store on Neosho street. For a number of years Mr. Puffer has suffered from a cancer on his neck, which finally resulted in his death.
Charles Puffer was born in Lewis county, New York, June 25, 1825, lived there nineteen years and moved to Wisconsin where he lived until he removed to Lawrence in 1857. He came here in 1858. He was married to Miss Hannah Butler in Wisconsin in 1857. Mr. Puffer was captain of Co. K., 16th Kansas, during the war and afterwards served in the legislature one term and was one of the commisioners of public instruction of the city council for a number of years.
For a number of years Mr. Puffer was engaged in the lumber business in our city, but of late years he has run a drug store. No man lives in our city to-day who has seen more of Burlington's progress than he. There is not a house in town but what he saw built. From a bare prairie where the coyote and deer run at will he has seen built a handsome little city. An no man has ben more enterprising than Mr. Puffer. He was always ready and willing to aid any public enterprise.
His funeral took place on Sunday last at his residence. Elder Park C. Herbert conducted the services. The Knights of Pythias quartette, composed of T. A. Wiseman, C. P. Allen, George X. White and J. G. Denslow, rendered a couple of hymns, "Nearer My God to Thee," and "Jesus, Lover of My Soul." There was an immense crowd of people at the funeral, which showed that he was held in high esteem by our people. Mr. Puffer leaves a wife and six children, Mary E., Charles H., Edwin F., Emma J., Nelllie M., and Kathleen E., besides a large concourse of friends to mourn his loss. In his death Burlington loses one of her best citizens, and the family a loving and devoted husband and a kind and indulgent father. May he rest in peace.

A tender young bit of femininity who signs herself "Jessie," contributes the following touching lines to the Solomon City Sentinel:
The frosty nights have come again,
And at this time of year,
The single men who sleep alone
Prance round upon their ear.

They turn the bedding quickly back,
And then hastily tumble in,
Dreaming of delightful bliss,
Their knees up under their chin.

And then they softly murmur
Just loud enough to hear,
By George! this thing has got to cease,
Before another year.


In speaking of deserted wives, the Troy Chief says: "It is said that by actual count, there are four hundred deserted wives in Topeka. Their brave 'protectors' finding it hard work to make a living, have left them to hustle for themselves, or live on charity. We have known of hundreds of men that caused us to wonder why any woman ever married them. A good deal of this trouble comes of the eagerness with which many women marry the first thing that comes along. Women who are earning a good living will marry men whom they will have to support, and who will in time desert them--never failing to leave a lot of mementoes behind in the shape of children. They seem determined to marry, and will take anything that is forked, and is called a man."

Fancy Groceries.
We are making a specialty of the above and are headquarters for canned good, pickels, fish and cheese carrying a complete line of each....We beg to call your attention to some of our lines, as follows:
BULK PICKELS.
Spiced pickles, white onions, sauerkraut, dill pickles, large sour, sour gherkins, sweet gherkins, sour mixed, sweet mixed, sweet midgets, mammoth olives, medium olives, small olives and chow chow.
CHEESE.
German Bismark, brick, Herkimer county, New York, full cream, calumet club, young American, Tom Thum, Swiss and limberger.
SALT FISH.
Columbia river salmon, Mackinaw blue fins, No. 1 shore mackerel, large family mackerel, No. 1 white fish, Georgia bay whole cod and brick cod.
PICKELED FISH.
Milchner herring, roe herring, Marinetta spice hering, sardines, smelts, sardellen and Russian sardines.
SMOKED FISH.
Smoked white fish, smoked halibut and smoked herring.
CANNED GOODS.
owing to the shortage in the fruit crop few households are supplied with the usual amount of home canning. California goods are recognized as next in order. It has always been diffidult to obtain a fruit which has retained its natural flavor. We have one put up as near like home canning as possible. It is a strictly high grade article. Something better than this has never been to market. Buying the quantity that we did, we can offer lemon cling peaches, apricots, pears, egg, green gage and golden drop plums at 20c per can. A lemon cling, sliced for cream, which is solid pack and fully one third more fruit, for 25c per can. We call your special attention to it. The above line we guarantee to give satisfaction or refund the money. We also have a choice line in peaches, apricots and plums at 17 1/2c a can. A medium grade (not low grade) at 12 1/2c, which makes a reasonable pie fruit at that price.
Westphalia Times: "One of the most important business changes made in Westphalia for years was consummated last week. W. L. Cayot purchased or rather traded for the share owned by J. F. Cayot, and the firm name will be accordingly changed from W. L. Cayot & Co., to W. L. Cayot. Mr. W. L. Cayot now possesses one of the best business houses in the county and does an immense business. J. F. Cayot, the retiring member, will continue to reside in Wesphalia, and will handle and feed stock to considerable extent."

This is the time of year when the larger cities find out they have some poor people, and go to work making collections with which to purchase them provisions and clothing, therefore making Christmas and its attendant joyous times a blessed reality to many a burdened soul. A small contribution from each of those who are not in real poverty would go far toward lifting the clouds of despondency from many a desolate home.

His Fifty-Fifth Birthday.
On Saturday evening last H. L. Jarboe entertained about fifty of his gentlemen friends and associates at his elegant suburban home. None of the party seemed to know that this was the gentleman's birthday. After the guests had all arrived they were invited into the parlors where tea was served. It was an elaborate spread. Those present were

G. G. Hall, E. M. Clark, Dr. H. T. Salisbury, W. J. La Rue, Jr., D. K. Swearengin, H. G. Beatty, Orson Kent, C. H. Rase, J. M. Lane, W. B. Clark, Dr. Wm. Manson, M. T. Arnold, A. L. Woodford, A. W. Jones, J. E. Woodford, M. A. Crouse, A. T. Neyhart, T. W. Foster, S. J. Wilson, F. Hoffmans, B. L. Kingsbury, Dr. D. O. Hopkins, James Redmond, C. P. Allen, C. O. Smith, M. F. Brown, Lem A. Woods, D. Grimes, H. E. Cowgill, S. D. Patton, W. J. Artstrong, H. H. Murray, E. F. Morton, E. J. Crego, J. M. Evans, T. C. Ballinger, A. P. Brigham, W. J. Sanders, S. M. Lane, W. H. Rudfauff, E. E. Mullinis, W. H. Cruiser, M. E. Grimes.
The evening was spent in social conversation, whist, high-five and a general good time. Cigars and gum were enjoyed by the boys during the evening. The INDEPENDENT hopes that Mr. Jarboe will live many more years to enjoy the pleasures of the world.

MARRIED
LA RUE--STEVENSON--In Avon township, Coffey county, Kansas, Dec. 19, 1896, by Rev. W. I. Jackson, J. G. La Rue and Hilda Stevenson.
NORRIS--LATHAM--In Burlington, Kansas, Dec. 20, 1896, by Judge Jenkins, Thos. A. Morris and Alma I. Latham.
WILLIAMS--MITCHELL--In Aliceville, Kansas, Dec. 16, 1896, by Rev. L. D. Fellinger, Myron Williams and Emma Z. Mitchell.

The Emporia papers on Friday of last week announced the marriage of Judge W. A. Randolph and Miss Emma Lane, at Venita, Indian Territory, on that date. The INDEPENDENT congratulates the happy couple and hopes that their married life will be one of happiness, joy and prosperity. They are both well known to Burlington people and have hosts of friends. Miss Lane is very popular among the people here and is regarded as one of our citizens. Since Judge Randolph has been on the bench he has made many warm friends here.

Mrs. T. Y. Proctor died at her home in Burlington on Sunday last, of comsumption. She was thirty-four years old. Mrs. Proctor was the mother of four children who are all living. About three weeks ago she grew rapidly worse and everything was done that could be to restore her health, but all to no purpose. Rev. Mulvaney preached a short funeral sermon at the house after which her remains were interred in a cemetery near the Schlicter farm, seven miles sourth of this city. This death is a very sad one on account of leaving four motherless children.

Sunday, Dec. 20, was a day which will long be remembered by the Catholics in Burlington. For the first time in the history of the church there was a forty hour devotion. It was satisfying to see what an active part the Catholics took in this devotion. All day long the church was filled by devout adorers of the blessed sacrament. A large number received the sacrament on this occasion. Fathers Fowler of Piqua, and Welkman, of Humboldt, were present and assisted the pastor, Father Shultze. Excellent sermons were delivered by the visiting fathers, which were listened to by an immense audience. The Catholic church of Burlington is composed of our best people. The INDEPENDENT is pleased to see them so prosperous.

Burlington is to be again favored with the Tennesseeans. They will be here Wednesday, Dec. 30. These famous jubilee singers are stronger than ever this season. The old favorite, Joseph A. Hagerman, "the lion bass," is the heavy end of a quartet that weighs 856 pounds; over 200 pounds each. Fred C. Cary, the funny tenor singer, will have a full quota of his humerous negro melodies. The grand choruses by the company are unsurpassed. Don't miss them.
On Friday last a compromise was made and settlement consumated in the cases of C. H. Race vs. the Burlington National Bank. The cases against the bank are dismissed, the bank allowing part in the Edna Race and C. M. Barnes suits. C. H. Race's suit for damages for a malicious prosecution is withdrawn without any concession by the bank, and the bank's suit against Race, which is now in the supreme court, will be dismissed. The INDEPENDENT is pleased to see this matter settled out of court. As a rule laswuits are costly affairs, and result in more or less loss to both parties, one side or the other.

A. B. Barnett, of Burlington, died very suddenly of heart disease at the home of his son, Frank H. on Tuesday evening, December 22, 1896. Mr. Barnett, was sixty-four years old. His remains were shipped to Ft. Scott for interment. He was a very pleasant gentleman.

The Eldorado Times prints the following card of thanks from a disconsolate widow: "I desire to thank the friends and neighbors most heartily in this manner for their united aid and co-operation during the illness and death of my recent husband, who escaped from me by the hand of death on Friday last while eating his breakfast. The the friends and all who contributed so willingly towards making the last moments and funeral of my husband a howling success, I desire to be remembered most kindly, hoping these few lines will find you enjoying the same blassing. I also have a good milch cow and a roan gelding horse which I will sell cheap. God moves in a mysterious way His wonders to perform. He plants His footsteps in the sea and rides upon the storm. Also a black and white shoat very low."

Christmas
To-day is Christmas. This day will bring happiness to us just in proportion as we bring happiness to others. To a number of our citizens the day this year brings other than happy thoughts or memories. Sorrows are harder to bear on festal days than at any other time. But no sorrow should crush the Christmas spirit from our hearts. It is not in the amount that we do, or are able to do, that we shall find happiness for ourselves and for others. The simplest pleasures and acts oft times make the hearts of others to overflow with happiness. To fail to do something because you feel that you cannot do much is wrong. What seems ever so trifling to you may make some little heart sing all day long, while but for you might pass the day without a note of happiness. The hard times of the past few years have almost done away with the pretty custom of exchanging gifts in families who never failed to observe it in more prosperous times. We should not grow impatient of the Christmas myth or legend. It is our duty to celebrate the day in the best and happiest manner possible to our means. Let us not disturb the Christmas traditions. The day should be kept unlike any other. And we can only do this by fanning into flame the smouldering embers of the Christmas spirit which is in every one of us. God implanted it there. It was good that we should have it. In childhood the fire burned brightly enough within us; in old age the light of Christmas will reflect in our faces and our natures. In the meantime we must keep the spirit alive so that it may glow the warmer and softer in old age. Let us have an old time merry Christmas to-day; a real old-fashioned, happy one. Let us strive to make everybody forget that there is anything in our midst but good fellowship and happy people. To the sick, let us bring good cheer; to the sorrowful, the sweet balm of a happy smile; to the aged, loving thoughts of consideration; to the poor, a suggestion of the greatest material blessings which are ours. Then, as we bring light to other eyes, color to other cheeks, happiness to other hearts, we shall be happy ourselves. The Christmas spirit will keep alive within us. Our years must be spanned, not with a Christmas at either end, but with an unbroken bow of happy Yule-tides, the center brighter even than the beginning and the end. Living memories must intertwine and link together the golden curl and silvery lock. Then we live in the full richness of the Christmas that lies between; the Yule-tide of the present, the Christ day that is now and here.

An ice plant may be a good investment in this section of country next year. The prospects for an ice crop this winter are poor so far, but there is plenty of time yet for a big freeze. That "long and sever winter" has not commenced yet. But it may come. It didn't come last year, and what has happened once can happen again.

Pay Up.
This is the last issue of the INDEPENDENT this year. During the month a number who were indebted to the office have called and settled up, and we hop all who owe the office will do the same. A statement will be mailed next week to those in arears and we hope all will respond promptly. We have tried to be lenient with all, but the time has come when we must have part at least of what is due the office. To those who pay up in full, who owe over $1.50, they will receive the New York Weekly Tribune or Leavenworth Weekly Times free. We have also a great many of the best metropolitan weeklies or our clubbing list that can be got at a very low rate. Until Jan. 1st, 1897, we will send for one year the INDEPENDENT, New York Weekly Tribune and the Louisville Weekly Courier-Journal for $2.
