And They're Proud of the Sunflower State. Washington, Jan. 31. Kansas has a contingent in Washington of nearly 400. A majority of this contingent is represented in employ of congress and the federal departments. Aside from those in the service of Uncle Sam, there are Quite a number of Kansas people engaged in commercial and pro fessional activities here. There are probably few states repre sented in the District of Columbia where people are more loyal and dem onstrative of their interests at home than the people of the Sunflower state. Kansans here know "who is who" at home, and they are always proud of the acts of men holding high office who add reputation to the state and keep it in the limelight as being one of the most advanced in the country, not only In prosperity, but intelligence and ability . of the up-to-date character. Kansas is constantly kept prominent ly on the map by her sane and ad vanced ideas of laws, which frequent ly furnish the basis for not only new laws of other states, 'but figure ma terially '.vl the construction of our national acts in congress. In other words. Kansas is looked uipon by the You Can Depend On McCLINTOCK'S COFFEES Every Time You Buy! Satisfaction or money back. Blend No. 3, per lb... ..

During the periods of grasshoppers, drouths and Populism, it is true that the reputation of Kansas suffered im measurably, but during the past' decade or more the state has redeemed her self in a fashion that makes men and women, who since left her borders, distinctively proud of the land- of Bun flowers. They are now more anxious than ever to openly proclaim- their residence in the state. To be a resi dent of Kansas or to have graduated from one of her universities or colleges is not only an honor, but an asset in the official life of the Kansas con tingent in Washington. Incidentally, it may be stated here that there are probably more men and women from Kansas holding important scientific positions in the federal em ploy at Washington than any other state in the Union. They are mainly graduates of the State Agricultural college at Manhattan and the state university at Lawrence and Baker ! university. Today many of these Kan sans are holding some of the most im portant scientific positions in the gov ernment and have won glory and honor which place them ahead of men in similar work in foreign countries. A goodly number of Kansans hold semi-official positions in the various executive departments of the govern ment, while a majority of the con tingent is employed in a clerical ca pacity at fairlv well paid salaries. I There are 15 or 20 who hold offices i whose salaries range from $2,000 to $3,000 a year. A few hold , offices pay i ing more than these. 1 As President-elect Wilson is a stick I ler for civil service, there is but little concern felt in Washington that there will be any general upheaval in the machinery of the government in Wash ington where positions are covered by civil service. As a matter of course, it is expected that all executive posi tions outside of the service blanket will be made vacant in short order and filled by Democrats. All federal offices held in the states which are filled by the president will be made vacant at the expiration of the terms of appoint ment. These include- United States district attorneys, marshals and their deputies, collectors of internal revenue and their deputies and land office sur veyors and receivers, etc. " It should not be considered that the Kansas- contingent of officeholders in Washington are a political body as a whole or part. They represent all po litical parties of the state, and have obtained their positions through com petitive examinations of the civil ser vice without regard to their party af filiation. Their Jobs are theirs as long as they are efficient and live up to the oath of office. Already a hoard of Kansas Demo crats are clamoring for positions in Washington. The daily mails of Kan sas Democratic congressmen-who - will take their seats after March 4 are flooded by hundreds of applications for soft berths, the general impression be- i li 1111X1 t 1 1 - J'"' . - " - I ing jobs here will be retired and sup planted by Democrats. , - . -. . -It will be sad news for the offlce- .A.i.tnff'.rnn-i1 -. !Mrn that there will j be comparatively little pie to hand out during the coming aaminisi.rai.ion. least the -civil service will remain in tact and those under it can only be pried out of their jobs', for sufficient cause, and that cause will not be a political one. This is the strong be lief of the Democratic leaders in con gress. '. Mr. and Mrs. M. E. Casto of Wichita. Kan., are in Washington for the week sightseeing. They are stopping at the New Willard hotel. L. W. THAVIS. ' He Walked Of f a Street Car. Men have been known to walk off platforms and similar contrivances in their sleep, dropping down to what ever broke their iait witn a auu, sic I ening thud. .But for a man to walk ! off the platform of a street car when I he was supposed to be wide awake is something decidedly new. Recently a "guileless young farmer" of Netawaka succeeded in demonstrating that such a thing can be done, but he paid for his experience by looking, the . next day, as though he had been in a "scrap," and he still complains, when one succeeds in getting him to talk. that his nose is sore and he believes it was broken. It happened this way: Late one night the young man, re turning to the city from the suburbs, had reached the street crossing where he expected to alight. The conductor obligingly swung open the gates and the young man walked off. Seeming ly he did not know that such things as steps on street cars exist, or that the fact that the car still was moving made any difference in his dropping ! off. At least he walked off straight off the rear platform. Of course, the pavement caught him, or he might ; have been falling yet. But it was un kind in the catching, bruising him I quite a bit. It stretched him out full I length and "wallowed" him around in ! the dirt. The next day he refused to j discuss the reason for sundry marks j on his face, or why he walked with a j slight limp in spite of himself. But I the story finally leaked out, much to I the amusement of his Topeka friends. HAS A CREMONA? Joseph Lambotte of Rossville Claims That Honor. He Has Been Dealing in Old Violins for Years. " "Do you want' any old violins?" wistfully inquired a big. wholesome looking fellow with an instrument un der his arm. He carefully unwrapped an antiquated violin, bearing the magic inscription "Joseph Guarnerius. fecit Cremonae anno 1739." A Cre mona! A music master would nave cradled it in ecstatic arms. Its owner is Joseph Lambotte of Rossville, a Frenchman, who wants to sell the violin and -this is a secret marry the finest girl in the world. "If I lose on the violin, I make on the lady," he serenely observes, with a sage nod of his head." If the Cremona is a real one, it is worth thousands of dollars. Lam botte purchased It for fifty from a blind musician in Salina. who was 85 years old, and who had the violin from his father. The case is a mel low russet with an inlaid scene of a cloister in soft yellows and creamy browns looks as If it might be the work of Antoni Stradivari, who was famed not only for his beauty of tone, but of design. It is said that less than fifty Cremonas were made, and only a few are In existence. Although Lambotte is a French man, with royal blood in his veins, he Is not a musician and can't tell one string from another. He touches them with reverent lingers and wants to learn if he can. Lambotte has been selling old vio lins for IS years, and has disposed of two Stradivari in that time. Most of his trade is in larger cities, and he is sure he could make his fortune if he could save money enough' ; to go to New Tork. . "If I could see this rich man. this Carnegie," he declares, "I could make much money, and," he blithely adds, "get married to this, lady that I love." Bennett Is Found Guilty. .George Bennett is guilty of stealing a suit of clothes belonging to Thomas PowelU taken from the Auditorium at the time of the Karnival Knights min strel last April, according to the ver dict of a jury in the second division of the district court. Two others arrest ed with him, Joe Higgins and Charles Anderson,' were released, no evidence having been presented connecting them with the thefts of other clothing. The principal evidence against Ben nett was his own actions on being in directly accused of the tneft, and the alleged fact that he had Powell's clothes on. Powell saw Bennett standing in front of a moving pieture show, six weeks after the thefts, it was asserted, and whispered to a friend that he owned the suit Bennett was wearing. Bennett thereupon fled and when followed turned into a dark alley and disappeared. 25 CENT "DANDERINE" FOR FALLING HAIR AND DANDRUFF GROWS HAIR . - j Don't pay 50 cents for worthless hair tonics Use old, reliable, . harmless "Danderine" Get results.
