There are many young men who
would give half their fortunes to have
a dear good, sister, and yet when a
sweet girl one of the young men wants
to marry offers to be a sister to him. he
does not appreciate the strange rela-
tion.—New Orleans Picayune.
The house flies met this weeK and

those kind of resolutions, with no pros-

TUis is the last^isswe oQthe "Gridley
Gazette." As it is our funeral, we
take the liberty to preach the sermon
to suit our taste. For over four months
we have run behind from §10 to $15
per month, and have run out. Our
two cows and a female calf have faded
away to meet paper bills, we are with-
out milk and in the hole. Our branch
office has drawn on us for $12 97, and
our last remittance was borrowed
money which has not been paid back.
That's h—1, but its the triith. Our
grocery and meat bills, eet., have
grown beautifully and majestically
larger week after week, and while our
creditors have"our*sympathy, which is
cheerfully given, we are honest enough
to confess that it is about all they will
get at present. It may seem strange
to some, and our appearance may not
indicate it yet it is a fact, that news-
paper men eat the same as other people
hence the above explanation for the
benefit ol' <>ur numerous victims. We
pride ourself on our^lionestyfand sim-
It is no fault of our patrou*, who
have been as liberal and generous as
their means would permit, but the fact
is,the business of the town, won't sup-
port a paper. If there is a man in
Kansas who can beat us rustling he's
i dandy. We are !l rustler from
away back, but we can't rustle out a
paper f our weeks out of every month
at an expense of $-10 to $4-~> on an in-
come of about S25. We are not built
that way. If any body else wants to
try it the held is open.—(Jridley (Kan.)
The blackguard denunciations of
E?E Polly, County Judge, by ?nr
Crescent, for standing up'for his convic
tions and not shirking his duty when
it comes to voting, have caused many
who were indifferent otherwise, to de-
clare publicly for I'odv forjudge.
The editor of the'Crescent is a man
whom we hold in the highest personal
esteem and we are sorry to have reason
to doubt his honesty and sincerity. We
believe however that he has greatly
impaired his usefulness by his vehe-
ment espousal of «i few kickers in this
county whose chief desires are to re-
tard all aims at progress. In many
cases Mr. Miller wishes to have every
office in the county from county at-
torney up. (to say nothing of the
school) but he even wishes to try the
injunction suit in regards to the ja.il,—
wanting to try the case Himself as
Judge Willis does not know enough'
about law to have it come before him
There has been a nauseating suffic-
iency of unsupported assertions from
time to time—now let us have facts
and affidavits of reliable citizens, as
for a caucus held in any íaiff office—
and by the way there is only one in
town—in which the edita* o# Free
Press was interested, we piuftounce
the author a falsifier. we
are not a candidate for any puW&s of-
fice—we are not endeavoring to flfelign
a man who has been in this efcftnty
nearly as many years as the wouldbe
"Kid Judge" is years old. Not only
does he reflect on one officer alone, but
all t*'e principal officers in the county.
"We did not know he was a criminal
lawyer." That's funny, we supposed
that the editor of the Crescent knew
every thing above a second grade
school teacher's certificate. No Mr.
Miller we are not a crinfinal lawer or
a pctfifogjjw, aoK ace we running for
every office in the* county nor ' l-tetit-
men, in order to accoMpiisU.
