The cat recently had some kittens but these were taken away rrom her. For a time she mourned and grieved after them, but one day the family noticed her with a baby rabbit in her mouth.

This too was taken away and carried with the first one to the house for safe keeping. That evening both tiny rabbits were put back in their nest.

Brown, well and favor ably known in this community for many years a farmer on the north side of the Kansas river near Topeka, feels deeply grieved over a statement which appeared In another Topeka pa per reflecting on the value and ad vantages of his place. The farm ad joins the Boys' Industrial School and the state board of control is a possible buyer next week, needing additional land. The statement, which Col. Brown says is wholly untrue, is as follows: "The Brown tract may not be suit able for gardening or farming pur poses on account of being rough and covered with stones in some places. A ledge of stone underlies this tract close to the Burface, which renders it not en tirely suitable for the purpose desired by the school." Mr. Brown makes this emphatic statement in reply: "There Is not a stone to be found on the surface of the farm anywhere un less it has been hauled there, or ledge of stone within ten feet of the surface on any part of the place. There are two deep wells and no stone was found in digging either. Any man may have one hundred dollars who cart find a ledge of rock within ten feet of the farm'B surface or who will find a bet ter place for farming, gardening and fruit raising in Shawnee county For the past forty years it has Droduced some of the finest fruit, vegetables and corn ever ratsea in Shawnee county. It has a crop now and the land and crop are there to show for themselves. I can not see how any paper - could so grossly and unjustly misrepresent me at this time except through pre judice. I have lived here thirty-one years, nave tnea to live an honorable and upright life: am a crippled sol- nier. . i reel this injustice deeply lust at a time when I want a fair show with other farmers to sell my place if it is suitable for state purposes, as it mom surely is.
