FIRE WORKS RESTRICT16NS Whereas, the storage, handling or PULL use of fireworks, firecrackers and all other forms of explosives intended or used for purposes of .celebration or pyrotechnic display constitutes a ser ious fire hazard, and, whereas, the conservation of life and property is of extraordinary importance to the Am erican people now engaged in a great war for human liberty, I have made the following regulations in pursuance of the powers vested in the state fire marshal by section 12, chapter 198 of the laws of 1917. ' The use or the keeping for storage or sale or for any other purpose of any fireworks or other explosives, in tended or used for purpose of celebra tion or pyrotechnic display, within one thousand (1,000) feet of anv building used for , business or resi dence purposes, or of any barn or store house, or of any stack of grain or feed, is forbidden in the state of Kansas so long as this country shall be "engaged in war. ' . .. L. T. Hus'sey, " Stite Fire Marshal. DICTAGRAMS If my name were "Schwinn" I'd hesitate a while before calling an Englishman a pro-german. And a good way to boost a decent fellow is to begin by calling him hard names. But then, some unfortunate people have no other argument. A little bunch of people are fight ing a certain candidate bv calling him names and another bunch from the same camp are sayins that he has no strength and therefore he is not in the race. If the latter be true then why make the fight on him? Straws show which way the wind blows, coming events cast their shad ows before, and the skittish horse knows what he shies at. No, this June is not hotter, up to date, than other Junes have been. One year ago this week we had a maximum temperatures of 100 to 105. In June, 1911, we had a maximum of 104 on the 7th and 110 ,on the 25th. It didn't get hotter earlier than usual this year. No, the eclipse had noth ing to do with it except to make it a little cooler while it lasted. Cutting off the sunlight nearly always makes things cooler instead of hotter. Nearly every night proves that, and the same may be said of cloudy days, and for the same reason people raise sun shades and carry parasols. The war spirit permeates every thing and makes itself felt every where. . A marriage announcement recently received bears this legend: "At Home After the War, Ransom, Kansas. After the war, what then ? Per haps no phrase of three English words could be framed at this time more suggestive of sentiment or of far reaching possibilities of interest and importance to the people of the whole world. After the war some, of the boys will come marching home, but who? After the war some of the question will be answered and some of the problems will be settled, .but how? After the war. It is a text -to fill a column and volumes might be written around it without touching half of its phases. Yes, after the war? ? But then, let us fight to the last and hope for the best. - - COMMON , SCHOOL COM MEN CK ' MENT EXERCISES - ' Last Friday afternoon the Common School graduating exercises were held at the Court House. Not : -nding the extreme heat a large crowd at tended. Edwin L. Holton, Dean of the summer - school at Manhattan Agri cultural College was the speaker and made an interesting and excellent ad dress, which was instructive and help ful to his listeners. Clemford Kulp at the piano rendered a splendid march to which strains the sixty eight mem bers of the class of 1918 marched in and took their places on the platform which had been arranged for them. They were a bright looking crowd of happy eyed boys and girls and made a fine showing. Unfortunately ten of their number found it impos sible to be present which would have brought their number up to seventy eight. Miss Katherine Hemphill ren dered a vocal solo "Spring Flowers" in an unusually pleasing manner, possessing a very clear, sweet voice. Professor Niesley introduced the speaker whom we have already men tioned and who delivered a splendid address. After the presentation of the diplomas by Professor Niesley, who made his usual splendid talk, Misses Ruth Bingham, Elsie Zeman and Sheldon Campbell played a pretty piano trio which brought the exer cises to a successful close.

Wiegand, state poultry club leader, division of extension, Kansas State Agricultural college. - ' Eggs are cheap and plentiful and can be stored without waste to the consumer at this season of the year. This prevents flooding the markets with the product in the season when losses are .. unavoidable. Every . con sumer should store away .at least SO dozen eggs in the next month for home use. This can easily be done by the water glass method of preserving. For 30 dozen eggs use two five-gallon crocks capacity 15 dozen each. Boil 18 quarts of water and cool. Mix with two quarts of sodium silicate. Place the eggs as collected, fresh and clean in the crooks previously scalded, keeping them covered to a depth of two inches with water glass solution. Place this crock in a cool dark well ventilated cellar and cover it with waxed paper to prevent the evaporation of the solution. If you are in need of shoes don't miss the Clothing.
