NEED MORE LAND
Kansas has played Hie waiting
ixiliry loo long. This with res
pert to Ihc purchase of land for
the use of the Manhattan Agricul
tural Experiment station. This
growing institution has for years
.needed more land and has been
renting, nearby, tracts off and on
the last 9 ten years , that land
would ultimately have, to be
oughl or the usefulness of the
institution curtailed has for many
year been apparent. There was
a time, when all the needed land
convenient to the station could
haw been bought ala low price--at
a figure much lower than at
.'present and 1owerthan.it will
jever again be. To do 'agricultural
and . Jinimal , husbandry work
worth while requires land and the
legislature should at. this session
Provide for the nmvhnjA rf nli
tand as is necessary to enable the
Ration to do the work the farm
ers of Kansas expect .of it and
suVtr as will meet 'the rapidly
Krdwing need of the 'agricultural
ami live slock' industries of the
Tlif; animal Jiusbandry and
jdairy departments of the above in
Milullon are frequently criticised
because their live stock is kept un
der impractical conditions con
ditions which are not parallel with
those txisling on the average Kan
" sas farpx The methods employed
in the keeping of live stock at the
Manhattan station are not imprac
tical sojfar as tfie situation exist
ing .at tne station are concerned.
Thy station is 'demonstrating how
a maximum of live slock can be
luaiirtained on a small acreage and
Hit 'methods employed are thor
oughly practical. The great mass
of farmers in the state have not
yet come to the point al which it.
is necessary to maintain the herd lathe game, he sat back some
n crampcu quarters. It.is dcsir-U-hnl and lr-t thp other fellmv
able that the station be permitted
to demonstrate the. most econom
ist and profitable methods of an
imal husbandry under those con
. dilbns of land and feed crops
which apply to, the average" Kan
sas farm as U now is. Under the
present circumstances the station
must buy much high-priced feed
because the herds cannot be main
tained on grass arid coarse forage
crops through the lack of land on
which to grow these. Such cle
ment of impracticability as enters
into the work of the station in the
.above respects-is in no sense the
fault of station management ' but
is due to the penurious altitude of
legislatures of -the nasf which hn P
denied the institution land when
i! nutld haf been obtained at
. reasonable cost and if need be,
sold later at a higher price. The
state of Kansas never could and
cannot now make a better invest
menl than in the purchase of lands
near Manhattan. '""
Hie 'animal husbandry deDart
menl of the Kansas Agricultural
College has a total of 12i acres
upon which it is expected to main
tain three breeds of beef cattle,
three breeds of hogs, three breeds
of horses and five breeds of sheep.
These herds are maintained on
this land, but much feed must be
bought. The land owned barely
affords exercising ground for
these herds. The dairy depart
ment is carrying 100 head of dairy
stock on 50 acres and the method
by which this is done is commend
able for demonstrative purposes
and is also profitable. However,
this land docs not supply the
needed amount of hay or silage,
to say nothing of pasture.
The Board of Administration is
asking of the present legislature
$23,000 with which to buy the
land for the departments, and the
appropriation should be made
without quibbling and without
BIG PUBLIC SALE

HOME FOR SHORT VISIT
Representative Fred Zutavern
came in from Topeka the first of
the week for a short visit with
home folks and his many friends,

duties in the state legislature,
stopping at Hutchinson to attend

were inclined to lead in some di

was for the best interests of the
people. His experience during
the last term has proven to be of
Ureat- value and this year he is
one of the influential members of
the house of representatives and
is one of the main leaders of the

IT REALLY DOES RELIEV1
Everybody who is afflicted
with Rheumatism in any form
should by all means keep a bottle
of Sloan's Liniment on hand. The
minute you feel pain or soreness
in any joint or muscle, bathe
with Sloans Liniment. Do not
rub it. Sloan's penetrates almost
immediately right to the seat of
pain, relieving the hot, tender,
swollen feeling and making the
part easy and comfortable. Get
a bottle of Sloan's Liniment for 25
cents of any druggist and have it
in the house against Colds, Sore
and Swollen Joints, Lumbago,
Sciatic and like ailments. Your
money back if nohsalisfied, but
it does give almost instant relief.
Buy a bottle today.
Will cry the big sale which H.
L. Wodburn will hold at his place
south of town in the near future
Can you figure it out?

LETS HAVE THE WHITE WAY
The proposition of a .White
Way for Great Bend still seems
to be a case of possibly having
this improvement in the far dis
tant future. The city commis
sioners and the light company
are still at a considerable differ
ence of opinion as to what the
current should be worth and this
seems to be the main stumbling
block in the way of the success
ful completion of the .enterprise.
Thef superintendent of the light
com'any insists that the rate of
fered is as low as the current can
be rurnished for, and the city of
ficials say that it is more than
they can afford to pay or than is
paid by other towns m the same
class as Great Bend. In the mean
time other towns are going ahead
and putting in this great improve
ment and if. Great Bend is not
careful she will, in thisi matter,
be left at the rear end of the pro
cession. It is possible that con
cessions could be made by both
the city officials and the light
company, and if such is the case
the matter should be settled as
soon as possible and the White
Way installed without delay. It
is an improvement which the
town needs and needs badlv.
