On Tuesday Mrs. I lift had the pleas
ure of a visit from Mr. Burbank of
Barnett, Vermont, who was an old
acquaintance when she lived there many
years ago. He was on his wav home
from a visit to the Pacific coast and
Btopped cfT here and at Ellis to visit
old time acquaintances.
Normal Versus Plainville.
Normal athletics for 1908 and 1909
received its initiation last Saturdav
at Plainville.. The football and girls
basketball teams drove over and back
in the same day. The Plainville High
School boys held the football boys to a
0 to 0 game fifty minutes ?ong. Punt
ing was resorted to frequently but the
wind made it difficult to gain. The
Normal interference was" loose and the
line needed bolstering up. This first
game served to show the weak places
and this week every effort is 'being
made to strengthen the team for Sat
urday's game with Colby. Colby has a
strong team and the Normal will en
deavor to give them their best.
The basketball game was a different
story. The Normal girls won 17tt10
and almost in a walkai that,' Gertie
Bice materially strengthened.' :J?Uin.
ville's team. There were noindijldual
stars on either of the Normal teams.
However the basketball team showed
much the better team work. Cont.
Xm Thomas Road.
The court having decided that the
opening of the South Chestnut street,
through the Thomas farm, was illegal
last Sunday it was closed and the joke
was on Commissioner Brull. He and
a party of friends had been out on a
political trip, which was very improper
on Sunday, and coming from the south
found the road closed. They left the
auto there in the road, walked up to
the hotel for dinner and then went
back for another trip. But Mr. Thom
as claims Mr. Brull has no right to
complain as the county years ago leased
a strip 150 feet wide along the north
side of the railroad track from Hays to
Ellis and the people are now demand
ing that the .road be opened so the
Yocemento people can easily come to
Hays to live and trade but Mr. Brull
has that road fenced up and closed and
people have to cross the railroad track
four times and travel on the south side
with its dangers to get to Yocemento
and the west side of the county. There
is a good road along the north side of
the track and Isaac Zeigler is ready to
open it along his land before coming to
Brail's farm. And Mr. Palmer is ready
to open the road along his farm if all
the others do so. Will Commissioner
Brull do this to oblige the traveling
public and business men of Hays?

Water Works Extension. .
On Monday the representative of the
Orr Engineering Co. of Kansas City
came here with the plans and specifi
cations of the water works extension
and met the Council who adopted them
with slight alternations and soon bids
will be asked for. They require a pit
twenty-six feet deep by thirty-five feet
across and bids for a seventy horse
power engine or a fifty and a twenty
five instead, also a 60,000 gallon an
hour double acting triple pump or a
S5,000 and a 25,000 instead. Also a
four inch pipe instead of the present
two inch one on Normal avenue from
Chestnut to Fort streets, in Fairview
addition from Ed Rea's to Ward' and
the balance in the northwest part of
town. In fact there don't seem to be
much new pipe line to be. put in but it
is mostly increased power in, engine
and pump, to be located near the pres
ent pumping station and to burn oil.
It is expected that work will com
mence within thirty days from award
ing of contract, about Dec. 1 and will
be completed within three months for
early spring' use.

Road Closed Again. .
Fccr months ago the court decided
that tli 31ns mdrfiil (1fi
nut street was not an open road. No
appeal was made and the matter was
dropped. Suggestion was publicly
made that a Road Petition 6houM be
circulated for a public road and ready
for the October meeting of the com
missioners, but still it lay quiet and
nothing was done. So this week Thom
as again closed the road and the town
again became excited, but at reqiest
of frinds it was reopened to give inter
esting parties a chance to act. The
county can do nothing, so the city auth
orities are figuring on hiring a lawyer
and entering a eostly and long drawn
law suit. In the meantime Thomas can
close the road through their private
property with no road open into town.
A compromise would be far better
and cheaper, or if no terms can be
made, then have a road laid out from
South Ash street along the section line
to the bridge, which can be more quick
ly done as the commissioners have not
yet adjourned their regular October
meeting.
In this eorntetion it is said that Mrs.
Thomas asked one of our business men
some questions which are hard to ans
wer: "Why the peeple ard the mayor
should be so anxious to open South
Chestnut street as a direct road, when
North Chestnut street just - north of
Mayor Schwaller's residence is allowed
to be closed, when it was laid cut an
open street? Now people goto Sch
wallers, then go east a block, then up
North Oak street and there is another
closed road so you must go east another
block before you get out of town, w hen
down there all people have to do is to
go one block west to the section line
and a county bridge." Also, '"Why, if
the Experiment Station folks were bo
anxious for South Chestnut steet to be
opened, they had gone four years with
out building a bridge across Big Creek
on their land connecting Iheir south
side road with Chestest street?"
