The Kansas Farmer, editorially, last
week gives Superintendent Ten Eyck
and our Experiment Station this fine
notice and eucb notices are in all the
big papers and it is purely a good ad
vertisement for our experiment Station:
"At its meeting last week the Board
of Regents of the Kansas State Agri
cultural College elected Prof. A. M.
Ten Eyck to the position of director of
the Hays Experiment Station at Hays,
Kansas. This is the largest Experi
ment Station in the world and the
board naturally wanted a big man to
direct it. In takirg od this new work
Professor TenEyck does not sever his
connection with the State Agricultural
College. He will be professor of farm
management in the college, but his
new work at the Hays station will
probably take a large share of his
energies and time.
"In selecting Professor TenEyck for
this responsible position the board
choose a man who is thoroughly famil
iar with Kansas conditions, who is a
trained experimentor and who has a
reputation for good work in his chosen
field that is second to none. With the
strong men who now compose the
working force of the Kansas State
Agricultural College and Experiment
Station every Kansan has reason to
feel proud."

A few years ago a young business man whom we all '
know started in business with 1C0.C0 which he had
accumulated by saving a little as he went along.
To-day he is worth $40,000,

worth what he is to-day. It's always the first hundred
that counts. This young man is a customer of this Bank.

The Republican of January 18th says:
A teacher is subject to a fine of $25, if
they knowingly permit a child sick i
with any communicable disease to at
tend school.
Some time ago a teacher sent one of
her pupils home, who had been sent to
school by his parents who knew that
he was not yet over a communicable
disease. The father brought him back
declaring that he was going to have
his boy go to school. The teacher
afterwards saw that she had made a
mistake in letting the boy remain in
school even at the order of the unprin
cipled parent, who certainly has no re- J
gard for the rights of others. Since
then the rest of the pupils in school
have all taken down with this same
disease and have missed more or less
school for this reason. C.

Still Wanting More Land.
For years R. B- Thomas has bean
kept in 'hot water' and law suits de
fending his rights to his property on
South Chestnut street, adjoining the
Reservation, and finally won out and
proved his rights. He willingly gave
the required land when he was paid for
it, as he had a right to be, the earns
as any other property owner.
Now he has got another snarl on
hand. Last Saturday two Topeka law
yers, state employees, were here in tne
interest of the State Normal on the
reservation, that ia not satisfied with
3800 acres of land, but is determined
that he shall give them a tract on his
southwest corner, contending that he
don't know where his line is. The Nor
mal want some of his land as well as
some of the Mrs. Ryan and Charlie
Reeder tracts to they can get to their
land and school without going down in
the creek bottom, as the road runs
now. Instead of buying the needed
100-foot right of way it seems it is to
be secured by a new survey line. But
as the Ryan Reeder fences have been
there on that line 'close to the creek
for a score of years, it seems hardly
possible that any new survey now will
change it and a purchase seems the
onlv proper way.
Mr. Thomas offers to treat tbem
fair if they meet him half way. The
Reservation when laid out was War
Department Government land. He of
fers to have tha Government, it still
being Government land, to send a
U. S. Surveyor here from Ft. Riiey,
one who ia working for the Govern
ment and knows NO individual or in
terest, lnen let mm go soatn 10 a
known comer store and survey to a
known corner stone north of the i:ity
and aHde by that line and survey, for
the old government records are on file
and can be secured by that Government
Surveyor. That would settle the qi:c-a
tion whether the rock in tha hedgerow
is a corner stone or not.

Railroad surveyors created conster
nation in our city last week by measur

their track from the center, where it
passed through the town proper, its
additions and adjoining lands. Under
the late decision of the U. S. Supreme
Court in a question of their right of
wav it was finally decided that the
railroad bad a right of way of 200 feet
on each side of the track from the
center of the main track where the
land had not been homesteaded PRIOR
to the location of the survey of the
road. So people who have encrouchecJ
on their right of way will be given
D'ain notice that the railroad OWNS tfce

the crown, and then painted a big K
with iodine on his face and on the top
of his head. It was laughable, but the
boy had to hunt up a barber shop to
change his looks. The President or
Regents have made no fuss over the
pranks of the boys. These little af
