The millers of Kansas,' although they are usually inclined to feel op timistic concerning wheat and general crop conditions in spite of continued drought, do not all agree In their estimates as to what the fall wheat Is going to do. , ' The Logan brothers grain company of Kansas City, a few days ago sent out letters to Kansas millers asking their views on the wheat conditions. These opinions were printed In the Kansas City Star, and It Is a notice able fact that the millers do not agree at all in their forecasts.

Some of the wheat has not germinated, but It will come out all right If we get rain soon. The majority of Kansas millers however, have optimistic views and their statements show that at least 75 per cent of Kansas wheat Is in good condition. Following Is wnai other millers have written, and the snow Monday night encourages bet ter estimates In most sections of the state: " Salina: Shellabarger Mill ft Ele vator company The condition of the winter wheat in this section and west to the Colorado line Is anything but good. We do not think our territory can' possibly produce 50 per cent of an average crop, even with the most favorable weather. Concordia Mining Company Do not believe there has been any exten. slve damage yet, but with hard freei Ing weather before we get moisture large areas might be winter killed, as top of ground Is very dry.

Better come across with your license fee of tlO and not be subject to a fins of $10 or mure if the officers find It out. The row ordinance does not say'thnl theie shall be a license for tables used for hire but on tables 'for play." That means every billlurd or pool tablo In the city and any one having M'ch a table In bis hii3 Is liable to arrest and fine If the license Is not paid. It Is expected that' there will be required a license for checkers and pussy-wantav-corner as soon as the city fathers get around to It. You must let no one under 21 years old play without written consent of th parents. The managers of the billiard rooms balance is bout J.e wonaerng ,t n0w to obsy the new ordlance which makes It a penal ty, for allowing any one under 21 years to play.
