Since the sale of Mrs. Guiness' per sonal property her name is seldom seen in the public prints. Fame is fleeting Belleville and Republic county had a very exciting time last week, judging from the Freeman. A bank robbery eight June weddings, a suicide and a death were a few of the events to break the monotony. It used to be a by-word with all easterners that "it never rains in Kan sas." After the deluge and conse quent floods of this year and last we wonder if this shouldn t be "it ever rains in Kansas." Rainfall Breaks the Record. The State Experiment Station locat ed at this city is keeping an accurate record of many things which are of great interest and importance to the people of Ellis county. Among the statistics is the exact amount of rain fall each month. G. K. Helder, secre tary, gives the amount of rainfall in the past two weeks as 5.15 inches, which breaks all previous records since the Station has been established. Of this amount over three inches fell last Saturday and Sunday. Essex Club Building About. Ready. The Kreuger building which was pur chased a few months agD by the Essex Club, a club of about thirty-five young men of Hays, has undergone a trans formation on the interior. When com pleted it will be one of handsomest club houses in the state. The first floor, which has been beautifully fitted up for a ball room, has indeed under gone a metamorphosis. An interior stairway on the south side of the first floor leads to the second floor; in the south west corner of the room is a lit tie platform for the orchestra; four large electric fans with chandeliers are on this floor; the room is very beauti fully papered in a Holland style and has a smooth floor of hard maple. The first floor also contains the ladies' cloak and toilet room. The second floor has been partitioned off into three large rooms and a smaller room, which lat ter is now being fitted for a toilet and bath room for the free use of the mem bers. To the front of the second floor are the library and parlor which are joined by a large double door. On the north-west side just back of the parlor is the spacious billiard room. The third story, which will not be fitted up just at present, will constitute the banquet hall and kitchen. All the rooms are fitted with electric lights and will also be supplied with fans. It is the aim of the club to remodel the front of the building and put in large plate glass windows, but this will not be done until later. The Essex Club has announced a public reception to the people of Hays on the evening of July 4 and the oc eassion will undoubtedly be the biggest social event Hays has had for years. The formal opening of the building will be celebrated by the club members and their ladies July 3. The noted .Springer's Orchestra of Salina has been engaged for the twer days. After running the Beloit Gazette for twenty-five years, S. H. and G. H. Dodge have sold it to F. W. Swan of Emporia, who is now in charge. S. H. Dodge is one of the best known news paper men in the state and for many years was one of the regents of the State Normal schools. jLinnnL WITH 'Whose Little Girl? Oh, whose little girl can this be, I wonder? Will nobody tell me before I blunder? Her hair Is tied with a fluffy bow, And mother has fixed up her curls "just so!" All dressed in her best with her "new soo's" under Oh, whose little girl can she be, I wonder? Has anyone lost such a bit of sweetness? A wee honey-bun oh, all curls and neat ness? Her eyes are the brown of the maple's gleam Deep down in the depths of an Autumn stream! I'm sure If she's lost there are hearts asunder Oh, whose little girl can she b, I won der? Her lips are the souls of two pure, red roses When dew on the tips of their bloom re poses; The ring to her laughter is Clio's art And comes from a gay little sugar heart; Her mouth it was made by the angel's finsrers Just right well, to give you a kiss that lingers! Oh, whose little girl can she be, I won der. With eyes all a-dance, and the dimples under? What's that? Oh, you say you are "daddy's dlrl" And mamma's, too, "tause your hair In turl!" Well, well! I can scarcely believe your story I thought you a bud from the fields of glory! I thought, with your tangle of curls and dimples. With light in your eyes like the sun- kissed whimples I thought you a bloom from the meadowed sky, A bit of the heaven from way up high! And mamma and papa what blest com nleteness To own such a rare little bunch ol sweetness ! --0 Chicken Feed Philosophy.
