We publish in this issue a three column, six inch advertisement for the Kansas City Karnival Krewe Fair Association another practical dem onstration of the wonderful pusli and energy for which Kansas City business men are noted all over the country. It seems to us that the Karnival Krewe Fair Association are giving more for their money than ever offer ed by the enterprising citizens of Kansas City; then too, their proposi tion has an element of permanency. Read their advertisement. The "big head" is a popular way of of expressing a common and very fre quent ailment. It arises from various sources, but the real foundation is lack of sense. A little money develops it in some people; a few good clothes- give it to others; a little office, where a chance is given to exercise a little authority is often the cause of it while others get it by having a better job than their associates. The truth is no "sensible person ever gets the "big head." The ones who become stucic up and stiffed necked from suc cess of any kind are weak in the intel lectual caliber. Ex. SUNDAY DOINGS. Last Saturday evening our genial station agent received a telegram from Train Dispatcher Payne of Ellis to notify the sheriff and marshal to be on the lookout for three tramps who stole two suits of tailor-made clothes, a pair of. pants, underwear, shirts and jewelry. A reward of $25 was offered for the capture of the thieves. The agent notified the sheriff and marshal and they went to the depot early Sunday morning and circulated among the steel gang. They soon learned that the trio had sold the stolen arti cle at a bargain. One of the thieves took a tumble and started to run toward Big creek. The shiffiff com manded him to halt by a shot from his gun, but the fellow didn't stop running. ,A second shot was fired but the fellow still ran on. Clyde Poffenberger happened to be there on his bicycle, and the sheriff handed him his gun and told him to go and arrest the fellow. Clyde obeyed and it wasn't long until he caDtnred his man and turned him over to the sher iff. The second fellow was arrested while pretending to be cooking his breakfast. In the .excitement the third fellow made his escape perhaps on foot or by rail as the east bound train pulled in while the arrests were being made. The two suspects wen; placed in jail. The sheriff and mar shal scoured the hills and hollows north of town to capture the fellow that got away but their efforts were futile. Mr. Paine drove up from El lis, identified the stolen "goods, paid the reward, and returned home. Af ter the excitement had died away one of white men workingon the steel gang tanked up too freely, went into a private house south of the track and made a fool of himself. The marshal took charge of him the balance of the day, and Judge Groft fined him an X. Sunday evening Sheriff Lorditsch ar rived from nays, took his prisoners and witnesses to Ellis and at 12:30 Monday morning the thieves were ar raigned before the bar of a justice. The were fined $25 and costs and were sent to jail for 60 days. - KAIiSAS Farm Products, IIuTfare on THIS MACNITICENT frOOOM HOUSE LOT ATBtAUTirUl.

The editor of the Gaylord Herald made a trip to Logan last week and gives the town a good write up. This is what he says of our congressman: ''Logan is the home of Hon. W. A.
