HAIL! HAIL.!! HAIL!!!
Farmers don't write your Hail Insurance until you are sure of a good crop to f insure; there is lots of time, and then when yousee you need the Insurance look up what State Su perintendent Lewis says of the Kansas Mc Pherson Hail Company of Kansas farmers of Kansas money and keep your money atNhomes We have been writing for them eight years and respectfully solicit your business when you are ready to insure. '-- A. L. EPPLER Agent for Kansas McPherson Hail Company at Ogallah, Wa-Keeney, ."Voda and Collyer CORRESPONDENCE Big Creek Those rains sure were fine. Wheat could not do better than it is doing. , " - Swen Pearsou went out to the ranch last Monday to meet the .assessor. John Herbert shipped a car of young cattle from Kansas City to Ellis last week. . Little Sammy Glass is recov ering nicely from his operation of a week or more ago. Miss Georgia Ross closed her school term at "Fairview last Tuesday . with a program and picnic. Alvin Hall of Ellis received quite serious injuries last Fri day by getting some of his ribs broken. The citizens and city of -Ellis are busy building sidewalks and street crossings on the west side of Ellis these days. ; E. W. Allman attended the picnic at Fairview and then went on to Ellis Tuesday. Wednes day he attended the Sauer sale. The program and ice cream supper at the Fairview school house last Saturday night by the F. E. C. U. had a large attend ance and everybody seemed to have a good time. noneer E. A. Kellogg and family vis ited at C. F. Reeves Sunday. The farmers around here were delayed Tuesday from planting corn on account of the rain. The Pioneer writer had so much to think about last week that he forgot his items until it was too late to send them in. Did you get any dust in your eyes last week? Some of our fields blew pretty bad but we be lieve they will be good now for the rest of the season. Joe Kellogg says riding the lister and teaching school are certainly two different occupa tions, but he thinks he'd as soon be outside such fine spring wea ther. Mrs. W. A. Rhoden and little Chas. returned home from Ne braska last week where Mrs. Rhoden was called to her moth er's bedside. She left her moth er in very poor health. Did you notice that our friend T. J. Rhoden had his hat in the ring for county sheriff? We like him as a neighbor and think he is well worth your consideration for the office. . Mrs. D. Pershing was "able to be out to the last day oi school at Pioneer the 25th. It is the iirst time she has been anywhere since last September. Pioneers wish her increasing strength. ' The finest rain of the season fell last Sunday night with the exception of Monday night when one just a little, better fell. We feel safe in saying that we had two inches that all went into the ground." The last day of school at Pio neer occurred last Saturday. It was, to our mind, a grand suc cess. The program just before dinner was not as good as it would have been had the chicken pox let us alone for the last two weeks. However, the children rendered their parts well con; sidering their chance. After the program we had one of those fine dinners spread before us which only Pioneer women are noted for giving. . Everyone present seemed to enjoy the din ner immensely. The T. C. H. S. base ball boys came out and took dinner with us. It must, not have agreed with them from the way they played ball. We guess you heard about the game? It seems like Big Creek got off on the right foot and the High School didn't, as Big Creek lead at the close of the first inning by a score of 6 to 0. We can't figure out what excuses the High School boys can give for not beating us, as we think the um pire was fair to both sides; all the excuse we can see for them is that they just weren't vthere with the goods. The final score of the . game was 10 to 1 in favor of Big' Creek. After the ball game several of the boys tried a few athletic sports but all of them were too weak to do their best. However, Robert Blakely won the half mile race over Ed Cass of T. C. H. S., who the day before won 1st prize at the track meet at Russell. This speaks well for Robert and the race was one of the most interesting events after the game. We judge there was somewhat over 200 in atten dance and everyone went home feeling Tiirfd but glad that they had beeu there. Voda Who says itj don't rain in west ern Kansas? John Connors called on R.

Sipe was busy for a few days last week putting in a dor mer window in the north side of the roof on the livery barn and got it finished just in time to have it tested by the rain. If you want to insure your wheat against hail, your live stock or buildings against torna do or fire, your life against acci dent or death, see Doerschlag at Ransom he writes for the best companies. Items seem to be mighty scarce now-a-days as there's not much doing and the weather, which writers generally fall back on, makes no changes ex cept the direction the wind blows from; guess there's no use to make a kick. Several of the local weather forecasts are predicting rain at an early date.. We will be very much disappointed if their pre dictions do not come true. Later Their prediction came true and we are enjoying some real mud. Good rain Sunday night amounting to at least 1 1-2 inches E. W. Simpson and son, Les ter, went to Wichita last week to consult the doctors, about the wound which the boy received from being bitten by a dog re cently. He was somewhat un easy of serious developments from the bite, but the doctor as sured him that there was no danger. Wedding bells have been ringing quite frequently during the past week for some of the young iojks m and about Ran som.

Clyde Giddings of near Arnold and- Miss Wierman o f Ness City were married last week and Miss Ollie Carroll of near this town and Mr. Schasben of Bazine were also married last week. To all these young people we extend our heartiest con gratulations. We took a trip to the south part of the county last-week and saw some ground that has been blowing quite seriously, the road being covered by several inches of loose dirt which made travel ing a car or motorcycle extreme ly hazardous but we managed to get through. It seems strange that one can see a field blowing to beat the band and see another right along side of it that is not being disturbed by the wind, and , we would like to have some one come along and tell us the why and wherefore of this and also some one that can give a good method that can be used by the average farmer to take care of the .soil so that it will not blow, and when we find him we will hail him as a benefactor to the people of Kansas.
