Got a Fine Place-
A biographical sketch of W.
Furse appeared in the July number
of the Phonographic Magazine pub-
lithed at Cincinnati, Ohio, from
which the following extracts are tak
On the Hth of Novembor Mr. Furei
placed himself under the instruction
of E. 0. Allen and devoted all his en
ergies to the study of phonography
until the following May, when for two
months he accompanied the old re-
different view of the situation and it
will in all probability require a de
cision or decisions of that court to
settle these questions.
"Without citing authorities, or
giving reasons for my views, I will
state them to you briefly as follows:
"County officers now in office will
continue to hold their offices without
re-election or appointment during the
-ensuing year, except in cases where
sheriffs and treasurers are now filling
their second terms. As to other
cases there will be no vacancies which
an be filled by appointment except
in case of death, resignation or re
"Where sheriffs and county treas
urers are filling their second terms
vacancies will arise immediately up
on the expiration of those terms
which must be filled by appointment,
and to which appointment the present
incumbents are not eligible.
"It is my judgment that sheriffs
and treasurers now holding their first
terms will not be eligible for a second
term it they continue to hold the of
fice during the ensuing year.
'While the title of the law is broad
enough to cover all county officers,
except county commissioners, the
body of the act seems to restrict its
application to the officers named,
and therefore it does not in my judg
ment affect the eleotion of. oounty
high school trustees."

The Kansas State Agricultural col
lege held over 100 Farmers' institutes
during the past summer. These sum
mer institutes were unusually suc
cessful. The attendance averaged
(30 per institute. The college fjree
is ready July 1 to take up the work
in Farmers' institutes this summer
and has the funds for holding 160
The eollege sends two speakers to
each institute, paying all their ex
penses, and also prints the programs
and posters for institutes without
charge. The farmers holding the
institute put up the posters, push the
advertising, furnish a place for hold
ing the meeting and present papers
and addresses for half the program.
It will pay you to hold an Institute

Burned More Wheat.
Another wheat field fire ia reported
from near Solomon, Messrs. Gould,
Skaggs and Rundle having a loss of
about 60 acres. Fifty men did their
best to stop the blaze but could not
do it. The Union Pacific has a force
of men burning fire guards along the
track and moving back the wheat to
lessen the danger.

created one quarter of the excitement
that has been caused by Dr. King's New

The various methods of teaching

The subjunctive and potential

in Prof. Ambrose's grammar class.
SANTA FE'S CHANGE OF NAME
Road Hai Altered Name and Adopted
a New Trade Mark
The Santa Fe railroad has changed
its name, The directors have deed
ed to drop the acoent mark over the

the public have already anticipated
I he road has adopted as a trade

the bar of a cross within a circle, It
appears on the new folder, together
with a representation of an Indian
blanket which makes a very attrao
tive cover. The cross within a oircle
is full of symbolism appropriate to

Kropff Burned the Field. -The
Manchester News says that
Prophet Kropff took speedy measures
to clean up his wheat field on which
he lost $500. It says: "The threshers
were no more than out of the field
when Mr. Kropff set fire to the straw
and stubble, thus destroying every
thing on the place that would tend
to remind him of his late lamented
vision.' Exit Prophet KroDff."
Watching the Construction.
M. Low, ehairman of the board of

In a recent letter Mr. Allen writes
of Mr. Furse as follows: "The per
sistency with which Mr. Furse pur
sued his phonographio studies was
something very unusual. I have
known him to sit at his desk taking
dictation for periods of three hours
without any pause or hesitation, and
he continued this nerve-exhausting
work for weeks at a time. During
the first three months of his study he
did not, with one exception, miss an
evening of study or praotice after
having spent the entire day with bis
work at the college. I attribute his
success to his perseverance and con
stant application to his work."
Shorthand notes were reproduced
in fac simile from the first case re
ported by Mr, Furse. Ho receives a
salary of $2,600 a year, and is now
spending his summer vacation of
three months among the snow-capped
peaks ot tne Rockies.

will be remembered as having been

If Prophet Kropff had not mixed

that there would be no wheat but a
big corn crop. His prophecy wires
wero crossed, that's all. Had they
kept straight he would be a greater

he did hit it was when he said oats

NEW VARIETY OF WHEAT,
Dickinson Farmers Interested in a
Change of Seed-
The report comos from the Minne
sota School of Agriculture tlut new
varieties of wheat have been produced,
by cross-fertilization, that will revolu-
onize the culture of this cereal.
Mr. Harwood, who reports the re
sults, savs In the World's Work:
The increaso of the new wheat
over all old varieties will be at least
two bushels por acre. In tho three
states of Minnesota, North Dakota
ana soutn Liimota there are, on an
average, about fifteen million aores
of land planted to wheat. When the
new wheat is in use over all this
region on increase of only two bush
els per acrejwill niako a crop at least
thirty million bushels larger than the
old varieties would have yielded, At
an average price of 75 cents per
bushel, the increase In wealth in this
region will be $22,600,000 a year."
He reports that tho wheat tested
last season leaves about four thousand
bushels to be disposed of to other
farmers; and so will have a marked
effect upon the harvest of 1901, None
of the old wheat with which Prof.
Hayes was working, produced over
about nineteen bushels to the acre;
while one of the new wheats which he
secured by his scientific labors pro
duced over forty-two bushels per acre.
The average of the new varieties has
been twenty-seven bushels per acre
or over, The prospect is therefore
exceedingly bright for a very large
increase in our wheat crop without
any increase in acreage. No one can
foretell the result of this one stroke
of science in improving the condition
of the human race.
During last May an infant child of
our neignoor was suffering from
cholera infantum. The doctors had
given up all hopes ot recovery. I
took a bottle of Chamberlain's Colic,
Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy to the
house, telling them I felt sure It
would do good if used according to
directions. In two days' time the
child had fully recovered. The child
is now vigorous and healthy. I have
recommended this remedy frequently
and have never known "it to fail.
