The table flowers were pink sweet peas em ployed in a low decoration in the center of the board and in bouton nieres bordered with maiden hair fern at the covers. The place cards had sweet pea decorations in water colors and glass candelabra set with pink candles capped with pink shades completed a particularly attractive table. There was an exceedingly good looking receiving line at the re ception at the Governor's House for the visiting editors' wives and daugh ters yesterday, and, if we do say it ourselves, as shouldn't the "perfesh" had no. reason to be ashamed of its wimmen folks.

Of the assisting young women none was so admired as Miss Lenora Stubbs, the governor's elder daugh v t?r, the almost classic lines of whose "Vmpire-princess grown was especially becoming to her. It was a par ticularly artistic gown, simple almost to severity, the sort-of gown which depends entirely for its effect upon its lines. A Kansas City gown builder made it. Miss Stubbs affects a simple coiffure, the middle part and low coil, sans curls, sans puffs, sans bangs and sans rats, but she is pretty enough to get away with it and in fact it is refreshingly girlish and Superfluous 11 air v XeaBOvad by tha Maw PrlMipI rflatioa to modern sciooe.

The table- was a mess of papers, pencils, scissors, clippings, paste pots and ink wells and the cen terpiece was a printer's pi. But the "piece de resistance" of the decora tions in this room was a genuine printer's devil, the State- Journal's Charlie, loaned for the occasion in his working togs with a generous por tion of ink on his face and hands, who gave out the souvenirs, perfectly good lead peuclls, always acceptable to the "craft." Coffee and punch were served in the library. Mrs. J. W. Going and Miss Mar garet Going have sent out Invitations for an afternoon reception Tuesday, February 16, at their house, 909 To peka avenue.

In this creation Kansas hogs are shown in their true light as the money-mak ers of the state. A portion of Abe Steinberg's coun tenance resembles an underdone sec tion of hamberger steak on account of an accident which recently befell him.

Mr. Steinberg was thrown out on the pavement and alighted squarely on his nose.

Hedderman or 710 South Polk street, a contrac tor, sold his seventy-two acre farm two and one-half miles west of the Reform school for $150 an acre, or a total of J10.800 for the land to G. W. Cochran of Menoken. This price shows .a great increase in the value of the property within the last two decades. It is said to have been bought from an Indian by A. J. Booth of 1213 North Polk street for 12.500. Ten vears aeo Mr. rsootn sold it to Mr. Hedderman for a total ox 4,080, the latter paying 50 an acre for sixty acres and $90 an acre ior tne balance. ... The land has never been imnroved with the exception of a fence having oeen ount around it. The advance in price was due solely to the increase in the value of real estate. The farm is considered one of the best in this section of the state. It has never been flooded and is located in what is Known as the "upper bench." of the Kaw river bottom. Since Mr. Hedderman has owned It he has rented it. the tenants livimr on adjoining farms as there is no b,ouse on tne piace. corn and garden truck have been the principal crops. The present tenant Is Charles Den nis. He lives in a house on the Nich ols farm which adjoins the property on tne east. The Heddermans have lived In To peka for twenty-eight years. They cam here from Louisville. Ky. In speaking of the legend connect ed with "Ground Hog" day Tuesday, Thomas Page, president of the Page Milling company, told that while he did not believe in that superstition, he had seen a case where water was discovered on his place by the famous "witching with a peach twig" method by Jasper N. Lynch, a well digger, 1140 Lawrence street. "You know today is the time when the superstition goes that if the groundhog see his shadow he will run in his hole and that bad weather will follow for some time," said Mr. Page. "Well, of course I do not believe in such things, but at the same time, in speaking of this, I am reminded of an incident of which I was an eye wit ness. - V "You have heard of 'witching for water with a peach twig. A man takes a peach tree Jimb by two forks of the branch and . when the twig bends down and points to the ground, it is said that water may be found by digging down at this place. "I have always laughed at this saying. However, about twelve years ago I bought a farm about two miles west of the Reform school. There was no well on it. We tried to find water but failed. Finally I sent for J. N. Lynch, an old well digger. He came to the place and proceeded to hunt for water in the manner de scribed. I watched him and began to smile. He said: 'I see you are smiling at me. but you Just watch.' I did so. At a certain nlace - on the hillside, the peach twig began to point down. Mr. Lynch then said: I am so certain that water can be found by digging where the twic points that I will agree not to charge anything if I dig here and do not find water, but I will charge $2 a foot if I dig any other place whether I find water or not. "We agreed that the well should be dug where he indicated. "This was done and at the depth of aDout nrty-two feet we struck several feet of water. The well has been used continuously since that time and even if the water is pumped all day long the water is not lowered more than two or three inches. "We have tried to find water on several pther places on the farm, but have failed. "No, I do not exactly believe In the potency of the peach twig as a water finder, but I am just telling what I saw. "The peach twig didn't work for every one. Before the well was dug, I marked the spot where the peach twig pointed and had several men try the experiment. For some it would work, for others it wouldn't." The finishing or leveling work is be ing done on the dike extending west from the Rock Island bridge two miles to the Updegraff farm on the north bank of the Kansas river. It is ex pected that this portion of the dike will be entirely completed by the first of March. Forty teams and sixty men are employed on this stretch of the embankment. City Engineer John Rogers and Street Commissioner J. F. R. Snyder yesterday afternoon, accompanied by V. R. Parkhurst, looked over the work on the dikes and located the sewer con nection between Jackson street and Kansas avenue where the "back water trap" is to be located. They inspected the work of the tearing up of the pav ing which is being done on Central av enue to prepare an approach to the Central avenue bridge which is to re place the old structure. While out of the several companies which have made bids to do the work,- none have been chosen and the exact kind of a bridge has not been decided upon it Is pro bable that the bridge will be longer than the old one was and have plenty of waterway. The abutments will pro bably be of concrete or brick. : The matter is in the hands of the committee on public works. They will confer with the county commissioners as to the style of the new bridge to be adopted. The city and county have each agreed to pay half of the expense. The com missioners and committee will probably meet some time this week. A. Joseph of 823 Kansas ' avenue, manager of the Topeka Paper com pany, sustained a painful but not seri ous injury to his left foot yesterday afternoon. A horse stepped on his foot. He was hitching up at his home when the accident occurred. ' Mr. Jo seph went to work but was forced to return home on account of the pain. He was able to be at work again today. .
