Those who work, and save part of their earnings, are
working to the best effect. 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. - .
Mr. Bullock was bom at" North
Frodingham, England, on September
14, 1852, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Ol
man Wilson Bullock. He was married
in America to Miss Anna Bromley, on
April 22, 1877.
To this union nine children were
. born, seven of whom, with the widow
"survive. They are John J. of Seat
tle, Washington; Robert of Havs,
Kansas; Mrs. Luce and Mrs. O. M.
Strailey, also of Hays; Mrs. William
McClelland, Mrs. William Hall of LoS
Angeles and Fred Bullock of Fos
toria. Fourteen grandchildren also
survive.
Throughout life Mr. Bullock has
ben a faithful attendant and worker
in the church. He was for many vears
superintendent of a Sunday School
' in Kansas.
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

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

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

The 18th Field Artillery
I am sitting here a thinking of
the things I left behind, and I hate
to put on paper what is running
thru my mind. We've dug a million
trenches and cleaned ten miles of
ground and a meaner place on this
earth, never has been found. 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. Take a
front seat 18th Artillery, for you've
done your hitch in hell.

Mo More Currency Panics
Do you remember the shut-downs, the business de

To prevent another currency panic the Federal Re

of currency to furnish the banks which belong; to the sys

Lack of Gasoline Saved His Life
John O'Loughlin, Jr., had an excit
ing time, to say the least. Monday
night in the storm. He d-ove a Ford
from Salina to Hays during from G p.
m., to 11 p. m. John says the going
was good until he got to Wilson. Then
i trouble began. Water was in tljb road
and telephone poles would be!acros3
it. Leaving it in "low" he would get
out and by letting the car bump
ajrainst the poies he could pull some
of them out of the way. Others were
too big to move in the mud. Then
taking a running start he would drive
over them with almost a jump. In
crossing some of the culverts and
bridges he could only guess at their
location. Once or twice he skidded
against the sides of bridges the on
ly way he could tell he was really
on them. John has a Knoriallv fittrl
Catherine j protection against the action of wa
Hays ter on his engine. At eleven o'clock
the gasoline gave out just the other
side of Toulon. He was cold, abso
lutely wet and covered with mud,
even down inside his shirt his brpjut
was cak?'l in mud. John left the car
