Finally she decided it was up to her to start some thing, so the next time he called she pointed to a rose in the but ton hole of his coat and said: "I'll give you a kiss for that rose." A crimson flush spread over his face, and after some hesitation on his part he grabed his hat and started to leave the room. "Where are you going? " she asked in surprise.

"yes, but its great any-way, aint it." Say, this is great fun but makes a fellow look like a fool don't it. " Oh John I've lost the kids, have you seen 'em? "Au look on the Merry-go-round and'you'll find 'em alright." -Tlie Merry Widow looked a little lonesome didn't you think. My that Ferris wheel is out of sight,, when she goes over, a fellow has a dandy chance to hug his girl without being seeD by the fellow behind him. "Darn that stuff, I wish you'd it out of my eyes," your eyes,' your mouth you mean." Come on let's go home. I'm bust ed, the kids havehad forty rides a piece and are bawling for more. "Say, if I had a pony like that I'd fire my book-keeper, and give the pony the job." "Say, who'd you say that long, lanky thin woman was that rode a saffron colored bronco on the Merry-g o r o u n d ," "Poffy?" "Oh get out, Poffy never went near the merry-go-round.'" Just ask Joe. "The snake charmer wasn't very pretty, but he looked mighty comfortable for such hot weath er. "If madam had only wabled, "The Last Rose of Summer" over that conglomeration of red, white, yallar feather roses, we believe they would have sold better. That nice clear sparkling well water, with half a teaspoon full of sugar, and a dash of lemon juice in it, sold mighty well. The city council met last Mon. day and adjourned to meet again Tuesday evening. A Kansas editor has discover ed how to tell a man's politics. Take your man into a hotel wash room. A Republican will wash and empty the bowl, a Democrat will wash and leave the water stand, the Prohibitionist will wash in the water left over; and the Socialist will comb his whisk ers and not wash at all. Ex. While Kennedy's Laxative Cought Syrup is especially rec ommended for children, it is, of course, just as good for adults. Children like to take it because it tastes nearly as good as maple sugar. Its laxative principle drives the cold from the system by a gentle, natural, yet copious action of the bowels. Sold by W. W. GIBSON. - - . In spite of the fact that Secre tary Taft has often laughingly declared that no real gentle man -weighs more than 300 pounds his bulk combined with the compact frame of his run ning mate, James S. Sherman, makes the heaviest ticket ever put forward-by any national party. The two mentogether tip the scales at something not far i short of 500 pounds. j Tne record before tms was held by the Democrats on the strength of the avoirdupois of Grover Cleveland, when nomi ated in 1892 Mr. Cleveland weighed about 275 but the small figure of Adlai E. Stevenson kept the total around 425 pounds. The exact weight of the big Secretary is not known though the popu lar guess is not far short of the limit of gentility set by himself. Mr. Sherman weighs a good 200 pounds. Ex. See the giant gorilla, see the big snake! Only a dime " any time. Have a look, have a look, have a look!

All hail to the first state wide primary which was proclained as a panacea for all the ills political flesh is heir to. Heralded as a chance for every voter to express his choice and to make his vote count for some thing, a more cunningly devised scheme to defeat those very things was never held out to bait the gullible. Small wonder in deed that some men refushed to vote and others, less conscien tious, forswore themselves for a chance to bestow a favor or to vent their spleen. . As usual the liar got in his work when it was too late to nail him. All hail to the first great Kansas vaudeville election, -t Obituary. James E.

The little attacks of stomach trouble and stomach disorders will undoubtf ully lead to chronic dyspepsia unless you take some thing for a sufficient time to strengthen the stomach and give it a chance to get well. If you take Kodal in the beginning the bad attacks of Dyspepsia will be avoided, but if you allow these little attacks to go unheeded it will take Kodal a longer time to put your stomach in good condi tion again. - Sold by w. w. gib son.
