Kirby was born in Dickinson county, Kansas, Feb ruary 25, 1884 and died in Kan sas City, Missouri September 23, 1909.. Her father, mother, three brothers and three sisters mourn her death. Her funeral was held at Baldwin Sunday September 26th and was con ducted by Rev. Jenness of the first Methodist church of Bald win. Miss Kirby received her early education at the pleasant coun try school called Highland, Dick inson county, Kansas and later spent two . terms at Emporia State Normal where she won the confidence and esteem of her in structors. After teaching sev eral terms in eastern Kansas with marked success, she came to Trego county to visit her sis ter and while here attended our County Normal Institute. The Board of Education of Wa-Keeney offered her a posi tion which she .accepted and filled with credit to herself and honor to her school. She ac cepted the position for another year but failing health caused her to tender her resignation and she returned to har, home near Ottawa where she spent the summer. While she ?as in capaciated for work and was los ing strength yet there seemed to be no immediate cause for alarm and her death came as a great shock to her relatives and friends. Miss Kirby was one of those cheerful, happy individuals, so full of life and animation, so en ergetic and ambitious, so cour teous, generous and sympathet ic that all with whom she came in contact were her friends who were impressed with the rich ness and purity of her character. Her influence led into right channels and her work in Sun day school and church made her a power fo1- good. During the past year ope of the great sources of pleasure for hr was her piano, bought and paid for from the savings of the year, she spent much time with it, making it her companion and confidant, speaking to it in love enraptured terms and receiving its responses in harmony of sweet tones. She had kind words and a smile for all; no un kind word for any one. "To the pure all things are pure."

The council leased om tha county commissioners; for a term of 99 years a 43-foot square in the northwest corner of the courthouse park on which to locate the water tower and tank.

The tower will be higher thnn the spire of the courthouse, or 100 feet from base to balcony, and the tank will extend 25 feet above that and have a diameter of 20 feet. The tank will have a a capacity of 75,000 gallons and the capacity of the combined en gine and pump will be 200 gal lons per minute, requiring a lit tle more than six hob rs to fill th tank.
