ENLARGE ORPHANS' HOME Provisions Will Be Mado for One Hun dred More at Atchison. Arrangements have been made by the .state board of control for greatly extending the work of the State Or phans' home at Atchison, the result of which will be to furnish facilities for taking care of about 100 additional children at the school. The present number of children being cared for Is 130. Mrs. Sidney Breese, the matron of the school, has been appointed to the position of state agent for the school, and her duty will be to find homes for the children placed at the schooi. Up to the present time this work has been done by the superintendent, and it has been impossible to carefully investi gate the nature of the homes offered by applicants for children, or . to- see to it that the right children are se lected for these homes. It has also been decided to add a kindergarten teacher to the corps of teachers now employed, and establish a kindergarten department so that smaller children may be properly car ed for. The kindergarten teacher will also be in charge of the music depart ment of the school. While the board is not yet ready to announce that babies can be taken and cared for at the home, the prob ability is that before long facilities will be provided for taking care of In fant orphans, something which the state has not heretofore attempted. With these enlargements, the school will be prepared to do all of the work which is now done by private and church charitable institutions. It will not necessarily follow that such insti tutions will have to go out of business, but it will afford opportunity for those who desire to place children with the state, with full assurance that they will be properly cared for and good homes found for them. The schedule of work at the Or rhanr.' home will also be so arranged that the older children can be moved from one department to another, and thus secure a general education in do mestic science. The older children, who work in the laundry for a time, will be moved to the booking depart ment, the sewing department and oth er departments, so that they may learn various kinds of work. Additional help will be provided In the laundry so that there will not be po much arduous labor for the in mates of the home. The general ten dency will be to provide a place for the education of children along lines which will be useful to them in life. Meet me at the Chautauqua. FROM LAKES TO THE GULF. Surveyors at Work on Santa Fe Extensions. Shawnee, Okla.. July 16.

It is one of the prettiest locations In the city and would be greatly benefited by the opening of Grove avenue. Mr. Hughes himself secured the names on that remonstrance. A neigh bor of mine told me that Mr. Hughes had come to him," said Mr. Bolmar. "I secured Just four of those names on that petition; as for circulating it I had nothing to do with It," shouted back Councilman Hughes.

Upwards of twenty-five persons have changed their diet, on my recom mendation. 1 t is gladly given, because I know, from personal experience, whereof 1 speaK. It is a well known fact that white bread is almost entirely comrosed of starch and this is difficult of diges tion by many people particularly those who have weak intestinal digestion.

Why don't you zsk for what you want ? Don't giiess which is the best cigar and don't let anyone guess for you. You can be sure.

There are many "Triangle A" brands of many different names, different blends, dif ferent shapes and different prices to suit different tastes. The "Triangle A" is a guarantee that covers them all it distinguishes the superior . product of our new scientific manufacturing methods. No better proof of our claims could be offered than is found in the wonderfully improved ' quality of The New CREMO which represents the best quality that can be produced and sold for five cents it proves every claim we make for cigars sold under the "Triangle A." Every box is extra-wrapped in glasslne paper, sealed to maintain perfect smoking; condition and cleanliness until the box is opened.
