genuine regret that the commu

"" The glorious " Fourth dawned
bright and clear-and hot. The
usual noise that accompanies the
natal day was in evidence a good
many hours before- dawn. Not
withstanding the fact that it was
a busy day for the farmers a
large number were in town and a
good many from Collyer were
also noticed on our streets. -
In the forenoon the band gave
an open air concert after which
a ball game was played on
the diamond south of town
which attracted quite a crowd.
The Quinter base ball nine failed
to materialize and the - Rinker
picked nine crossed bats with
our second nine. It was a good
game of ball and when it was
over the score showed 5 to 3 in
favor of the second nine.
About 11 o'clock the parade
formed in front of the court
house with W. J. Williams as
marshal of the day at its head.
Mr. Williams was quite stunningise
in his gay colors of red, white and
blue and big sombrero.
The first, in order was Major
Steinberger's famous band and
although its members are all well
known, yet on this occasion most
every one was" trying to make out
who was who and trying to tell
which from 'thother. Such a. con
glomeration of colors and cos
tumes would be hard to imagine
without being an eye witness.
The day was very warm which
may have accounted for the num
ber of mother hubbards in evi
dence. One very portly gentle
man we noticed almost lost his
portliness and placed his arms
affectionately around his girth
with an expression of agony that
would have done credit to a star
in the high roles of tragedy; we
did not learn whether he lost his
bay window or not. Following
the band were several advertis
ing floats which were very good
indeed. Only one fancy float was
prepared and that was driven by
Mrs. W. J. Williams.
In the different contests after
dinner the tug of war, farmers
vs. town men, the town won out,
showing the fellows from the
country that there is plenty of
brawn in town as well as on the
farm. Milton Warner distin
guished himself by winning the
high jump and kick contest, the
three-legged race was also ' won
by the Warner brothers. They
seem to be pretty well up in
athletics. Our little BDly Bragg
won the sack race.
At 4 o'clock the ball game was
called- with Collyer at the bat,
Wa-Keeney taking the field.
It was a pretty game up to the
first half of the fifth inning the
score stood 3 to 1 in favor of Wa
Keeney. In this inning Deat
rich went up in the air and our
boys pounded him all over the
field scoring five - runs which
cinched the game. The Collyer
boys tried hard -to make a good
showing but the best they could
do was to add two more runs.
Wa-Keeney -added two more runs
winning the game by a score of
10 to 3. W. H. Swiggett officiat
ed - as umpire and J. J. Keraus

Some Kansas Records.
One of the results of the Kan
sas handbook recently issued by
Secretary Cdburn is an editorial
in the Chicago Record-Herald,
pointing out some of Kansas'
achievements. Many - Kansas
people do not know about these
things themselves. Here is what
the Record-Herald gives:
Kansas is ' short on blizzards
and cyclones, according to "Kan
sas Her Story and Statistics,"
the latest publication of the Kan
sas state board of agriculture.
But she is long on agricultural
records. Here are some of them:
She has produced 100,000,000
bushels of wheat in a year, more
than any other state in any one
She has produced in one year
almost a sixth of the total wheat
crop of the United States for
that year. .
She has ranked first as a wheat
yielding state five years out of
But wheat is a detail compared
with corn. Kansas has produced
274,000,000 bushels of it in one
year and $78,000,000 worth of it
in another. .
She has a single county which
has produced 10,710,741 bushels
of corn- in a year. She has a sin
gle field on a single farm in a sin
gle county which has produced
104 bushels of corn per acre.
She has bred John R. Gentry
and Joe Patchen.
She has bred a merino sheep
with a fleece which yielded 'fifty
two pounds of wool, and no one
can show an equal.
She has a town that has grown
from 2,000 to 20000 on a diet of
She is the second lead and zinc
state in the Union and the third
She has a fine population and
can boast that nearly 48 per
cent of it is Kansas grown.
The total yearly value of her
farm products is half again as
great as the total gold and silver
production of the nation, and if
the value of her agriculture pro
ducts and live stock were divided
up each year there would be
$260 worth for each person in the
Kansas is also a record state
in possessing in the person of F.
D. Coburn, the secretary of the
state board of agriculture, a man
who would rather gather such
facts as these and print them
from time to time than to be a
United States senator.
And. again she is a record
maker in possessing. The Ap

more red bugs on the national
firmament and raise more Cain
