dR.-ZD:-mfi yL-i MsSMMmMsmi WESTERN KAS. WORLD. W. S. TILTON, Editor. Satueday, June 27, 1885. 5. a. c. OF K. The World is in receipt of the cata logue of the State Agricultural College of Kansas 1884-85. The pamphlet con tains jnore than fifty pages, and bristles with matter reflective of the importance of the institution. We can not resist the temptation of copying, from the last page of the cata logue, this 8UMMABY. During the twenty-two Tears of its ex istence, the college has received 2,585 'different students 1,744 young men and 841 young -women. .Most of these have come from farmers' homes, and, after from three months to three years of study, have gone back to such Tiomes without graduation. The number of graduates up to 1884 is 102 of -whom 37 are -women. Graduates previous to 1877 pursued, with two ex ceptions, a classical course, and received the degree of Bachelor of Arts. Since 1877, all have received the degree of Bachelor of Science after a four-years course in the sciences with good English training. The 65 young men are engaged in busi ness as follows: Farmerd ' 16 Fruit-growers Mechanics General business men Printer. . . Civil engineering '. Officer in army Observers in signal service 2 Teachers and students of special sci ences G Teachers in public schools 4 Doctors and students of medicine 4 Dentist 1 Ministers and students of theology. . . 4 Lawyers and students at law 8 Deceased 2 Total G5 The 37 young women are occupied as follows: Housewives. ..." 13 Teachers 13 Milliners and dressmakers 2 Clerks or typewriters 5 At homo . 2 Deceased 2 Total. Whole Ant Hills of Wheat. Seeing John Morgan, of Buffalo Park, on the street Monday reminded us of a promise which we made him some weeks ago, and had not yet redeemed. The promise was entirely voluntary on our part, and came about in this way: A few weeks ago a brother of John's David, we believe came out from the Indiana tall timber, wheie he had grown up, to visit John and see western Kansas. John, of course, brought his brother into the World office on coming to tho cih again. David is just about as wakeful a talker as John. John proceeded to tell a good story at his expense, and David, with some reluctance, helped him out be tween almost deafening roars of laughter by tho crowd which was present. It was this story which we then declared our intention to give to our readers: John, in his florid style, began by saying: "My brother, nearly the first thing after we met for the first time in western Kansas, began to tell mo about seeing bunches of threshed wheat piled up evory little piece along the U. P. railway track for many miles on the plains to the cast of Buffalo Park. I could not tsll what he was driving at, but I told him it must be that people had hauled the grain, and placed it in that position, in order to have it handy to the cars. Nothing more was said about it, and I had almost forgotten the circumstance, when, one day, as my brother and myself were riding in the buggy down by tho Saline, he attracted my attention by exclaiming, 'There is one of those piles of wheat.' I could hardly hold myself. It was one of our gravel piles thrown up by ants!" Immense roaring by tho crowd! , Here David put in his explanation: "I didn't Imow John was going to tell this. I was not to blame. I was in com pany with a man who claimed to have traveled all over the West, and he told me that those mounds along the railroad track were piles of wheat." Crowning fit of laughter. There was no saloon handy, and David saved a general treat. However, he has brought his family west, and they are residents of Buffalo Park. Saline river was unfordable sev eral times during the latter part of last week. Captafn Fonts ascertained experi mentally that this was so last Saturday night. He had been at Logan to get his eon, who had been attending school there, and Mrs. Captain Fouts, who had been to Nebraska on a visit. Well along in the night they reached the north bank of the Saline, within aboiit a hundred yards of their residence, but the house is on this side of the stream. They had to go into camp until the next day, when the stream had fallen enough to permit them to cross. More public improvements have been make this week in tho shape of east-and-west ditching on the south side of Warren avenue, between Washington and Franklin streets, the elevation of the stone walk between Osborn & Monroe's and the TJ. S. land office, the piling of dirt along the roadway in the draw just east of the Oakes House, and so on. The champion bold frauct seems to be Frank Eaton, Mendota, Kan. He writes to us on a postal card, 'Tlease send me the Woblt for three months." He is ahead of the follows who remember us with almost daily regularity with postal cards, bearing the request, "Please cond me a copy of your paper." e "OS's jil . "WaJ' Judge Conger has a new buggy. Monday aiid Tuesday were cold. That is the way to express it Eev. Mr. Weller, of Buffalo Park, was in town on Monday and Tuesday. " An interesting article from the pen of J. Cantrel B. is crowded but until next week. Mr.JLipe has been sick the most of the week. He was in his shop again yesferday. -- Mr. Guy Blair, a brother of A. H's, is now in the ofSce with. him. Guy is from Solomon City. - John A. Nelson has a new land-omco sign a la the Warren, Keeney & Co. land sign of by-gone days. - The young man -who painted the fancy signs on so many- Wa-Keeney windows last week went west. Mrs. Benedict has had her house weatherboarded, and a kitchen attached to the rear of the main building. There i3 now an established road from here to Wa-Keeney, to the land office. Lane County Herald, at Watson. m Mr. Middleby informs us that his bull whose leg was broken was not fight in??. He is onlv a vearling, and the other bulls simply pounced on him and did the. injury. r Mr. and Mrs. Conger, from east of the Mississippi, who had been visiting at Dr. Conger's for about a week, started home Wednesday morning. Mr. Conger is a brother of the doctor's. Joseph Escher has been confined to his residence several weeks by sickness. We do not understand that hi3 condition is dangerous. He has a man employed to work in his harness shop. Wo learn that Commander Caddick has decided that the meetings of the Captain Trego Post will be on the first and third Tuesday evenings of each month, instead of Saturday evenings. D. H. Henkel asked us on the street, Tuesday morning, "Do I look like a young widower?" By that sign we ascer tained that Mrs. Henkel had just started on a visit to the state of old Virginia. W. E. Phillips, general agent of tho Kansas Mutual Life association, was in town in tho earlier days of tho week. He reports that new policy holders are recruited with convenience and dispatch. Geo. Galloway has built himself a blacksmith shop a short distance west of the opera house. This shop will be run under George's own superintendency. He has a man named Metz employed as blacksmith. Dr. Jones now has his office in the Scott drug store both day and night. The remembr;u(co of this will prevent people as ho desire his services from prowling around his residence in tho night to find him. where he does not stay. Awning business is decidedly boomy. This week the sidewalk has been covered in fiont of Hille's ''land office," Vorbcck's new stone building and tho wooden house where Tosh keeps the jewelry store. This is a big connective stretch of awning to be built within bne week. John Pounquist reports a good time at Mapes's Grove on Friday of last week. It had not rained much down there the night before, and quite a crowd was present Ice cream was manufactured on the ground. All got enough to eat, and went homo well pleased with what they had seen. M. F. Fuson, the conductor of the mail line between this place and Ness City, assured us Wednesday morning that from twelve miles south of Wa-Keeney to within seven miles of Ness City, no rain had fallen along his route for weeks, and that the ground was getting very dry. Despite this fact, Mr. Fuson reports corn looking well in the dry district, and he says that wheat will yield in the neighborhood of one-third of a crop. . Our old radical Eepublican neighbor, now of the Santa Fe, N. M. Leader, an nounces himself in favor of reform with a big K. Cleveland is not rapid enough for him, it would seem. -Even the Dem ocrats ought to, have known that Cleve land is built too much on the ponderous lozy style to bo fast with either his body or mind. But Stultz's big E reform item reminds us that "Jim" Millard took a sort of richochet tumble over the country as far as Kirwin the first half of this we.k. In other words, he was on a pleaturj roll, with a big P and E. Tho probababiliiy is that before the Would is issued again Baker & Shultz will be in their xiew office. They will occupy the southwest corner room on the first floor of Mr. J. H. Baker's new build ing, and have a consultation room just back of their office. The north and east first-floor rooms of the building will be occupied by a bakery and restaurant, and the upper story will be the residence of Mr. Baker's family. Mr. Baker has erected a good building, which is an or nament to the city, and we believe it will boa profitable investment to him. Last week Dr. aucb Mrs. Jones and Mr. and Mrs. T. E. Moore took a trip to Colorado. Saturday niglit they reached Denver, and pnfc up at the Alvord House. They were just in from Manitou, and were tired. Mr. Moore, on retiring, placed his pantaloons on a chair near the foot of his bed. He was entirely unconscious of when the thief made the raid, .but he missed very plainlv in the morning the $S3.00 which hjid been stolen. The hotel jnanagemenTare cen surable for not having a decent lock on the door of the room which Mr. Moore occupied. Mrs. Jones look a B. & M. train at Denver, on her way to Iowa, to take a visit. The jest of the partv.came east, Mrs. Moore stopping at Grinnelljor a few days to visit friend and .relatives. ' - ,- iitfirTi.i.-; v CASTLE ROCK RIPPLES;;: - Castle Kock, Jane 23, Another cold wave. Kain is badly needed. Cattle are laying on fat rapidly. " ' Oats are a total failure hereabouts? ' Nearly all the rye has been cut for fodder. f Buffalo grass is'the most heavily seeded thatwe have ever seen it The roundup and count in the Forrester pool was completed last weeK. "Mrs.-Samuel Harlin is just recovering from an acuto attack of asthma and pneu monia. Early corn is rolling up badly, and some of it tasseling out while lesithan knee high. sS':v : Early millet is quite ruined by the drouth, but that sowed late will do-well I if we have rain soon. Shearing is over, and the shearers-have returned from their spring's labors, their pockets heavy with hard-earned shekels. Again on Thursday last a fine shower, which seemed about to come to our aid, passed around to the north, benefitting our friends on Big creek and elsewhere. If the drouth has seriously damaged the crops, it has also killed nearly one half the "loco," and the remainder is fast going. "No loss without somo small gain." The first case of "blackleg" for this season has just made its appearance. If rapid fattening makes cattle liable .to the disease, then there are many fit subjects on the range. , .:K One of the high-grade Polled Angus bulls recently brought m by Mr. Middleby has had the misfortune to break its leg. The animal had been turned into a pas ture with some other bulls, and received the injury in a combat with one of them. Mr. Samuel Bingaman's new house is fast approaching completion. It is 15 ft. by 38 ft., full story and a half high, with threo gables. When finished, it -will be the finest building in this vicinity, as would bo expected by any one at all familiar with Mr. Bingaman's workman shin. X. A Good Dish for a Two-Year Baby. 2arion Ilarland, in Babyhood. When properly made, milk toast is a most satisfactory supper for babie3 over two years old. Pare away the crust from slices of stale, light, sweet bread, and with a cake-cutter or sharp edged tumbler cut each of these into a round, cooky-shaped piece. (They taste better to baby and to bigger children in this form than in the rectangular slice. I know one baby, twenty years of age, who when appotito flags begs for "t-ound cream-toast, such, as mamma used to make for us when we were wee bits of things."; Spread the rounds on a platter; set them on the oven a few minutes until they begin to roughen all over. Then toast them quickly over a clear fire, and scrape off every burnt crumb to bring the surface to a uniform shade of yellow brown. Dip each piece, as it is taken from the toaster, for a hasty second into boiling water (salted), butter lightly, and pile them in a bowl. Cover out of sight with scalding .milk, also salted, fit ona close top to tho bowl, and set in a pan of boiling water in a pretty brisk oven for fifteen or twenty minutes. The process will yield a dish so unliko the insipid stuff accepted and eaten under tho name of "dip," or "milk," or "soft toast" as to justify the beholders and eater in the ex penditure of thought and pains required for its production. Babies soon discrimi nate between "messes" and dainty, deli cate food, none tho less delicious because the ingredients are simple and inexpensive. If you can instead of scalding milk use half cream, half milk, the toast is still more nutritious and palatable. A Practical Joke at Obcrlin. McCook Kcb) Tribune. A very neat (and withal practical) joke was perpetrated by Inspector Lee, of the United States interior department, upon the land attorneys at Oberlin, Kan , re cently. The inspector assumed the role of a land seeker, and visited each land man in the town, inquiring concerning tho timber claim relinquishments in their possession. Every man took tho bait in a surprisingly voracious manner and gave Lee the information desired, where-' upon the inspector went to the local United States land office at Oberlin, and instead of making application for the numerous and sundry timber claims, had them all cancelled. Oberlin land men are very cute not men that can't learn and profit and we imagine that the person that catches them napping again will be smooth, very. Every family should have a bottle of Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diar- riicoa'i.Tsmeay ror use aunng me summer. Its prompt use has saved untold suffering-, many lives and many doctor bills. It is the acknowledged standard, and can be depended upon, besides it is pleasant to take. It is put up in 25 cent, 50 cent and one dollar bottles. . In writing of that country, Mr. O. S. McClain, a prominent real estate dealer, 301 Fifteenth street, Denver, Colorado, says : " I removed here from Iowa in 1374. As a healthy country, Colorado has proved to be equal to my .most sanguine expec tations. The air is clear, pure and light, The water here in Denver is obtained from artesian wells, GOO feet deep, which are numerous in the city, and free from alkali, mineral taint and vegetable matter; but in many places the water is impreg nated with alkali, and persons not ac customed to it are almost certain to be taken with cramping pains in the stomach, diarrcea or bowel complaint of some form; and right here I wish to give my friends and the public a bit of advice, which is based on eleven years' experience. Cham berlain's Colic, Cholera, and Diarcea Bemedy is a certain cure for alkali poisoning, cramping pains and diarhoea. It's a remedy I would not do without for any consideration, and I have heard many such expressions from persons who have tned it. Sold by AVAGNERS & GBIM. r .
