Of all the towns we strike along the
line where the girls swarm to the
trains and giggle and flirt and "show
off" generally Hays beats them all.
Take the hobos and the loafers and
last hut not least the girls that infest
the Hays depot at night it is almost
impossiole to board a train witiiout
politely knocking some of them down.
We are glad the Wa-Keeney girls
don't 'make" the evening train, if
they did. we would roast them a deep
er shade of brown than this. Wa
Shades of the short grass country !
Isn't a pious declaration like that
jarring? Wouldn't it wring tars
from the heart of a grindstone. We
have ofter heard of people seeing
snakes after an over indulgence of
just ordinary "speak easy," but the
Wa Keeney editor must have a new
brand if after indultrini; he sees ae-
trliiiR girls and flirting maidens. If
the World man would sober up, calm
ly light his pipe and pass through
Hays again he would go right home
and retract. True, there is usuallv a
crowd at the depot when the train
comes in but they are there either to
see friends off or to board the train in
preference to going down the track a
mile or so and flagging it as it comes
along. It may be the streets wete
blocked when our brother editor hung
his head out of the window and saw
such strange, weird sights. They
oft -;n are, and naturally a congestion
follows ' until the train moves and
brinsis relief. And why not giggle
a d be cheerful while vou wait: isn't
that better than to carry a ceme
tery look and wipe tear? No. Wa
Keeney girls don't make the evenjnjr
trains, simply because they never
know when a train is roing to stop at
their hamlet. Then if thev did there
wouldn't be irirls enouub in the town
to make a respectable showing. But
Wa-Keenev lias one girl who makes
all the trains that, do stop. . She is a
buxom weather-beaten beauty of over
forty summers and carries enouub
avoirdupois to tip the scales at 290.
Let the heavens deliver us from any
more such rot as this. World man
spews. Hays News.
Now. Mr. Mulroy, do you. really
think you treat us right when you get
so mad that you boil over and run
down the sides as you do in this arti
cle. Our feelings are very sensitive
and wish you would go easy. As a
matter of fact vou admit we told the
the truth in the matter, so we can't
see why you sizz and sputter like an
old-fashioned soda pop. We are willing
to admit that your Hays girls can
smile with a charm that would melt
the heart of a Chinaman let alone a
traveling man or an editor away from
home without his wife. This isn't
the part we kick about at all, but
when we go to get on the train the
dear creatures crowd around so thick
that we are afraid tbey were going to
pin our ears back and swalliw us
whole and that we wouldn't get home
at all. Tbe Wa-Keeney girls are al
right and they don't have to peddle
their charms at the evening trains
either and they are as pretty and lady
like as any that grace tbe earth any
where. We believe, Mr. Mulroy, that
personally you know a great deal more
about tbat girl that makes the train
than you are willing to tell or bow is
it that you keep such close tab on her
and bow did you know she weighed
2!K)? She isn't a Wa-Keeney girl at all.
