How to Make a Quick Plum Pudding
Remember that plum
pudding last year? You
began by assembling
everything onto your
kitchen table. That
meant about four trips

more to tne ice cnesc

to the cellar. Then
when you had the
work f airly started and
had your hands deep
in things, you missed

You could have sated all these steps with a Hosier Cabi

erything you need at fingers' ends. It saves miles of steps
for tired feet.
And the astonishing part is the low cost. The Hosier
Cabinet built of oak to endure a lifetime is made in such,
huge quantities that the price is less than that of any ordin

On Monday Everett Kemp gave
"The Music Master" at the court
house. He was greeted by a large
and appreciative audience. Kemp is
a reader and impersonator of more
than usual ability and the dramatic
rendering of '-The Music Master" a
most difficult role, will long be re
membered by those hearing him. Mr.
Kemp was here about five years ago
and gave "Seven Oaks" and com
pletely won his hearers at that time.
He is a master of his profession few
being able to excel "him in this line
and the people here greatly appreciate
his ability and hope to hear him a
galn. Wlule Hon. Miles Mulroy was at
Excelsior Springs, and while he was
not an avowed candidate for the
Hays postoffice, the leading democrats
of the city and the democrat county
officials got together and endorsed
him for the position. It was a fitting
tribute to his honesty, and the good
work he has done and is doing for his
party. The democrats are not alone
in their estimation and admiration of
the sterling qualities of Mr. Mulroy.
Should a petition be circulated ask
ing that Miles be appointed postmas
ter when Mr. Penny's times was up,
we believe that every patron of the
Hays postoffice, regardless of party
affiliation, would gladly indorse him.
As a gentleman and a citizen he
stands high in this community

Stewart' Estate Sella Land.
About two years ago "Uncle" John
Stewart of Effingham. Kans., pur
chafed the Wm. Wells land out on
Spring Creek northeast of Hill City
and the P. Bollinger land on Wild
Horse Creek southeast of Hill City.
These two ranchers compromised
some 5430 acres. Later Mr. Stewart
died and E. J. Kelly cashier of tne
Farmers and Merchants Bank of
Effingham was appointed administra
tor for the estate. Mr. Kelly has
just closed a deal with AVm. Carltele,
a retired millionaire lumberman of
Atchison, Kans., selling to him both
the Wells and Bollinger ranches for
$103,600. Recently, Mr. Carlisle was
here looking over the county general
ly, and while making the rounds
with our hustling loan agent, Frank
Grecian, he took a look at the Stewart
estate lands and was quite favorably
impressed with them. After return
ing home and talking over the matter
with Mr. Kelly, he wrote Mr. Grecian
for further information and as a re
sult of these negotations the big sale
was consumated. This will be a nice
piece of business for Mr. Grecian and
no doubt will net him a very neat
