They are making their work count. A part of their energy is thus stored up in the form of money to be enjoyed at a later time or expended with more profitable returns. The man who can see nothing for his labor becomes discouraged. Saving, even ever so little, is a stimulant to ambition. Interest paid on savings. '-' HAYS, NATIVE OF ENGLAND CLAIMED BY DEATH Robert Bullock Succombs to Heart Trouble ( Seven Children and Fourteen Grand children ..Survive ..Veteran Blacksmith Heart trouble proved fatal to Geo. Robert Bullock, aged G4, ,who died this morning at 9:30, following a lin gering illness of several months. A native of England, Mr. Bullock came to this city many years ago, es tablishing himself as a blacksmith. In 1892 he left Fostoria. to become a farmer in the state of Kansas, re turning to this city about six years ago. Death called him at his home 912 Walnvt Street. - .

Funeral arrangements will not be announced until relatives in the west , are communicated with. Interment, however, will be made in the Mauso leum. Fostoria, (Ohio) Times. It Rained and Then it Poured. The heavy wind and rain storms Monday and Tuesday nights was pret ty general over the county. During the two showers probably two inches of ram fell which was welcomed by the city dweller as well as the farmer. More rain fell than for about eigly ten months previous. While the down pour came too late to help corn and most of the vegetables yet is as a "saving grace" to late feed and grass. However, the wind and hail did con siderable damage to barns, windmills, grainaries and chicken houses. Monday night, Wm. Montgomery, Mr. Gerstner, Anton Schumacher, Mike Pfeifer, Jay Fellers, John Chit tenden had their barns' wrecked, chicken houses and windmills torn down, Jonah Nulton's grainary, barn and sheds were wrecked; Will Gosser bam completely wrecked Tuesday night, Jake Walter, An ton Sander, damage to house and. grainary; Alex Rupp, barn off foun dation; Alex B. Leiker, bam off foun dation; P. N. Wasinger near Toulon, barn, grainary and milk house wreck ed; Peter N. Dreiling, house damag ed: Wm. Pelzel, house, barn, windmill and milk house damaged; Alois Leik er east of Hays, house, bam and . chicken house t wrecked; John Rupp, barn damaged. Over on the Smoky, Mike Unrein, bam was blown down; Paul Ruder who lives south of town lost his bam and the school house in district forty-eight, near Toulon, was blown off the foundation. There are no doubt other losses of which we did not learn. Sheridan Coliseum to be Used - Sheridan Coliseum, the new $150, 000 building atrthe Fort Hays Nor mal, will be in complete use when school opens on September 11th. It will contain the finest gymnasium in the Mississippi valley and in addition will house the music, biology, physics, fine arts, farm blacksmithing, agri culture and manual training depart ments. While many other schools in the United States are cutting down their faculties the Fort Hays Kansas Nor mal will continue its work with the same strength of faculty and instruc tion together with the added expan sion and equipment that the Sheridan Coliseum will give. The new catalogues of the school t showing this byr growth and the work of the school are now ready for dis tribution. They may be obtained bv writing to President W. A.

Donald Meade has had as his guests for several days this week, the following boys of near his own age: Tom Chittenden, Oscar Sny der and Bryant Hale.

Starr, the Hays City boss bak er, says he has a pet frog, six years old, that took a swim Tuesday even ing, for the first time. It must be so. as Geoge's reputation for truth and veracity cannot be questioned. A. J. Highley, an oldtime friend of the writer formerly of Hutchinson, but now residing on a ranch in south Logan County, with his family, passed through Hays, Tuesday, . enroute from Kansas City. He was a pleas ant caller at the Free Press office. Prof. Shively returned Sunday, from a ten days trip to Warrensburg. and Kansas City, Mo. He will spend the remainder of his "vacation" su perintending the work at - the new high school building and doing the various other jobs necessary to tu opening of school in September. Regardless cf'the long drouth, the war and many other discouraging conditions, the Ellis County (The Golden Belt) Fair will be held just the same. The dates are September 25, 2P., 27 and 28. The "fair book" or list of premiums is now in the hands of the printer. A large attend ance is expected. Just after supper on the Tuesday evening when we had our afternoon hail storm, a twister' swept ovir the farm of John' Chittenden, one and r. hali to n-s northeast of. Hays lifted off the top of his bam and tore out a porch column of his residence. The little bungalow almost in the same yard was untouched. No lives were lost but Stanley was hurt somewhat by flying timbers, though not seriously- Herman Tholen, Jr., was a pleas ant caller at the Free Press office, Tuesday morning. He states that Herman Tholen & Son will discon tinue their store at Victoria, and move into their new building here about A.ugust 15th. - A large new stock will be purchased which will comprise everything in the jewelry line. Hays already has .one complete jewelry store, but as "competition is the life of trade." the people will heartily welcome Herman Tholen & Son. Harry Gros is carrying his right j arm in a sliner as a result of hino- overtaken by a Kansas cyclone ' and j nan storm combined. Harry is driver and salesman for the Standard Oil truck and was about two miles north I of Hays, when the storm struck and while it lasted he had the time of his life. The wind lifted him off his feet and tossed him round like a "feather and the hail, which was quite large, pelted him unmercifully. However, he came out victorious with the ex ception of a bumped head and bruis ed shoulder and arm. In a certain household not a thous and miles from the Free Press office the following incident took place: A friendly difference of opinion arose as to the number of cups of flour to use to make the bread for the next meal. It was settled by advancing the argu ment that the extra bread could be fed to the dog. With President Wilson asking for a wheatless meal every day from every American family the in cident is more than regretable. Such action on the part, of only half of the households in Hays would hinder the feeding of allied soldiers enough to cause the death of one of the quota Ellis County must send. It cannot too J often be pointed out that a cup of flour saved may save a life. It matters not that people have enough money to buy the extra cup of flour 3t's not money but flour that saves the lives these days. To feel no more personal responsibility than that shown above is evidence not onIy of obtuseness,' but treason and murder. Some time ago a big force of rail road graders were here putting in a new switch track on the east side of town near the stock yards. From here they were taken to Ellis, and are grading out the tiew switch yards east of the roundhouse, for the more extended division point of the rairoad there. We are informed that as soon as that work is done, which will be shortly, the whole gang of men, plows, scrapers -and teams will come back to Hays and grade up the new switch tracks on the east side of town, on both north and south sides of the present track running from the rail road bridge by the Fellows coal yards the Benton Produce Warehouse and! up to uafc street, where it connects j ers.

Friends here of Miss Laura Soper will be interested to learn that she has volunteered, as a member of the Topeka branch, to go soon as a mis sionary to north India. Miss Soper was for a year a teacher of.

This will take both the Water Works and Eliectric Light power houses out side the residence district, and it is claimed the engi neers have found an abundance of water on East Second Street near the new pump house. Work will commence soon and it is hered will be ready for use by the firrt of January. The. credits of Hays City must be j way up financially as seven eastern firms oid for the bonds offered.

It is not all as I expected it to be, but if it were to do over again, I'd be some thing. Fpr it is liberty and democracy against autocracy.

But there's still one consolation, gather closely while 1 tell, when we die we re bound for heaven, for we've done our hitch in hell. We've built a hundred kitchens for the cooks to stew our beans, we've stood a hundred guard mounts and cleaned the camp pa- trines,' we've washed a million mess kits, and peeled a million spuds, we've rolled a million blanket rolls and washed a million duds. The number of, parades we've made would be very nara 10 ten, Dut we u not parade in heaven for we've done our hitch in hell. We've killed a million rattle snakes that tried to take our cots and shook a hundred centipedes from our armysocks, we've marched a hundred thousand miles and made a thousand camps, and pulled a million cactus thorns from out our army pants, but wrftn our work on earth is done our friends behind will tell, when thev died they went to heaven, for they did ciieir mien in neii. w nen tne nnal taps is sounded and we lay aside life's care, and we do the last parade nn the shinme trolden stair, and the an gels bid us welcome, and the hams 1egin to play, and we draw a million canteen checks and spend them in on day, it's then we'll hear St. Peter, tea us loudly with a yell.
