LINCOLN PAINTS Paint Brushes, Varnish, Oils ' W.W.Gibson "THE DRUGGIST" WA-KEENEY, KANSAS Farmers 1 Take Notice! Vaccine to prevent the horse di sease now prevalent in several, states will now be shipped into the infected districts, free, by the Kansas Agri cultural College. The field station of the college at Hoxie, working night and dajis making the vaccine-at the rate of 5,000 to 6,000 doses every twenty-four hours. Of 2,030 horses vaccinated at this station with this vaccine, only ninteen died. Two fifths of the animals vaccinated were from herds in which many animals had died. "While we do not consider this conclusive proof that the bacterin will prevent the disease in all cases, we do believe that it will be valuable in checking the disease," said Dr. F. S. Schoenleber, state veterinarian at the Kansas Agricultural College. Dr. Schoenleber, with J. H. Mercer, state live stock sanitary commission er, had just returned from Hoxie. Their decision to distribute the vac cine as rapidly as possible was reached after noting the results obtained with the 2,000 animals at Iloxie. To get the vaccine a community must select a committee that will be responsible for its proper distribution and ad mist ration. This committee must get the services of a competent veterinarian. The committee also must agree to send a full report of the results obtained with the vaccine to the state veterinarian at the college. "In communities where there are . no graduate veterinarians, Mr. Mercer at Topeka, will furnish a qualified man," said Dr. Schoenleber. "It is very Important that the vac cine be applied by men who know their business, when properly applied It cannot injure a horse, but if ad ministered carelessly may do harm. It is necessary that we make some restrictions as to where we send the bacterin. If weshouldn't that ever present grafter would try to make money from it. Orders should be sent either to the agricultural college at Manhattan or to the state live stock sanitary commissioner at Topeka."

THE COOK CASE "We are taking no personal issue in the O. L. Cook case which attracted so much attention last week, but will say that we think. -it is high time the city awakens to that fact that instead of picking up little petty personal quarrels on the streets whose final outcomes amounts to just what this one did nothing, but un fortunately piles up a cost of over a hundred dollars that it had better turn its attention to the solving of the city debt which is large enough and still increasing instead of paying out good money for things that re sult in neither good nor profit to the city or the individual. Reform is a good thing if it Is worked out on a good sensible basis, but this kind ofreform that has been dished up and handed out to the Wa Keeney public for the past eighteen months has become wearisome and nauseating to the last degree and everybody is saying enough. Petti ness, personal grudges and tri vials are not the foundations, at least they should not be considered suffi cient grounds for some of the cases which have repeatedly appeared in the courts of this city and county, and it is about time to bring them to an abrupt close and get down to bus iness and do business or else close up shop and give the keys to somebody who can. There Is no particular use of being a laughing"stock all the time. The Cook case was given a fair trial in our district court, Mr. Cook acting as his own lawyer and winning his case,' and as Judge Ruppenthal himself invites criticism by his open newspaper statement last week we think l.is criticism oi the jury was untimely, uncalled for and very in judicial considering the dignity of the court. The jury was made up largely of our best, most representa tive, decent, law abiding farmers and citizens, and we consider his criti cism an insult to them and we are surprised that a judge of the exper ience of Judge Ruppenthal would stoop to show a petty biased opinion which he surely did in this case. We congratulate the jury on their good judgment and honest convic tions in arriving at the verdict which they rendered. Irrigrtion Meeting. Manhattan, Kans., Sept. 18. Kan sas is to have a state irrigation meet ing this fall. It is to be a two-dayi meeting and will be held at Garden City, October 24 and 25. Topics re lating to the development of irriga tion in Kansas will be discussed by Kansas men. Every farmer and land owner in the great plains region of the state will be expected to attend and hear the discussions. II. B. Walker, irrigation engineer in the extension service of the agri cultural college, has spent consider able time this year in the western part of the state looking over the ir rigation posibilities and advising in the installation of plants. He found the western farmers everywhere in tensly interested in irrigation. The suggestion of a state meeting to dis cuss irrigation problems met with popular favor with these men who are eager to know more abont this branch" of farming. Garden City was selected as the place to hold this meeting as it will give visitors an opportunity to see the big pumping plant there and also at Scott City. The Garden City Com mercial Club will entertain the visit ors with motor trips to the pumping plants and to the state experiment station. County commissioners, city councils, ; agricultural associations, and commercial clubs in the western half of the state will be asked to send delegates to this meeting. 1. Chas. Dillon.

Engineering Coarse Manhattan, Kans., Sept. 19. Few mechanics have time to go to school. The family must be supported, so they go on working for S15 or $20 a week when they should be doubling their incomes: The Kansas Agricul tural College has arranged to help these men with free courses of study prescribed by a competent engineer. The lessons can be taken at home. -v G. E. Bray, for several years pro fessor of shop methods and practice and superintendent of the shops at the college has been transferred to the extension service with the state as his field. Correspondence courses under his supervision will be offered in mechanical drawing and elemen tary architecture, shop practice and shop mathematics, elementary wood work, plumbing, automobile repair ing machine shop work, traction en gines, and others. He also, will con duct courses in farm engineering, which includes a practical study of farm machinery, farm buildings, gas engines, traction engines, steam boil ers, farm blacksmithing, farm wood working, and farm mechanics.

Dr. Udall Came from Cornell at the instance of the Union Pacific Rail road Company. President Mohler, who is deeply interested in this matter, .determined to do everything possible to not only ascertain the cause of the disease but to stamp it out. It is confidently expected that the philanthropic effort made by the Union Pacific to aid in this most im portant work will be productive of excellent results.

Monev to loan. See E. D. Wheeler. t : Public Warning i Dead horses must be burned or buried not ' less than live feet under the surface. Gener- al statutes of Kansas. 1909. Section 2833 reads as follows: -! Section I" If any person or persons shall ; put the carcas of any dead animal or domestic-fowl into any river, lane, lot. Held, mea 1 dow or common: or if the owner or owner I thereof shall knowingly permit the same to remain in any oi tne aioresaia places, to tne injury of the health or to the annoyance or damage of the citizens of this state or any ot them, every person so offending' shall on conviction thereof before any justice of the peace of the county be fined in a sum not less than one dollar or more than twenty five dollars, and every twenty-four hours during which said owner may permit the same to remain thereafter shall be deemed an additional offense against this act. The present epidemic which is causing the death of thousand of horses all over the country makes it necessary for the strictest adherence and enforcement of the law gov erning the disposal of dead animals so that an epidemic of typhoid among the people may be averted if possible. Every citizen should be interested in helping to keep down sprsad of disease, but should there be any neglect, failures, or refusals the law will be ridgidly enforced. If buried, it should be in remote places not subject to water percolation. The belter way is to burn. A load of damp litter or straw or a gallon or two of kerosene can be used effectively.

In other words, you think that a man who persists in working off the same old chestnut op an innocent public ought to be shot for cruelty to" wild animals. Old Sour. Why does a lie go 'round the world and back again before the truth gets out of sight of the starting post I'll tell you. It's because it is so much easier to- believe a lie, and pass it on, than it is to investigate and learn the truth. Moreover, some people have no appe tite for the truth anyway. Uncle Happy. o - The question of woman suffrage is recognized in grammer. It is good English grammer to say that Mr. Bloat married Miss Blank. On the other hand, good English requires , you to say that Miss Blank was married to Mr. Bloat.. The man takes possession the... woman becomes an appendage. The one represents power and authority, the other submission There fore, "votes for woman" is dead wrong in grammar. Uncle Happy is quite a philosopher and a great student of human nature, as well as a close observer of things in general. One of his hobbies is the perversity of the genus homo, which refuses to learn by example. The burnt child dreads fire but the other is not afraid of.it. Give a man advice and he does the other thing. A pig scalds himself with hot swill and runs squealing away, and the rest of the litter jump into the trough with both feet. Dick Taoeaph. Most people will pa. surprised to learn-that in this business-strenuous but peace loving, Yankee-land one of the leading employments is the manufacture of firearms and am uni tion. In both bulk of output and variety of products this interesting business reaches well toward the front among the largest American commercial factors. Inquiry among local dealers reveals the fact that the Remington-UMC factories, for instance, considered the largest of the kind in the United States, provide the trade with no less than eight models of shotguns and rifles, ap proximately 530 distinct kinds of metallic cartridges and 7,000 different kinds of shotgun loads. The value of this one company's gross output is said to run well into the millions and is distributed in every civilized nation on the globe. In the paths of peace and not in war, by the way, lie the best markets for' the creations of the gunsmith and the ammunition maker. The trap .shooter, the ride, pistol and revolver marksman, the farmer or ranchman who shoulders his gun for a week-end potpie or to protect his crops and his flocks from animal pests; the city and village sportsman, who makes his now-and-then pilgrimage to the game haunts these are the men who keep the wheels of the big factories ' moving' and upon whom the industry largely depends for year-in and year-out support. What Wo Never Forget according to science, are the things associated with "our early home life, such as Bucklen's Arnica Salve, that mother or grandmother used to cure our burns, boils, scalds, sores, skin eruptions, cuts, sprains or bruises. Forty years of cures prove its merit. Unrivaled for piles, corns or coldr sores. Only 25c at Gibson's. O "U Magazine Kidd."
