The Black Hill. The Black Hills of the Dakotas are in many ways our most beautiful bit of scenery. Lacking the grandeur of the Rockies, they have a glamour of isolated lovliness which gives them the charm of the place cut off and se cluded the charm that belongs to lonely islands and to the little towns of the northern wilderness. The Black Hills are a mountain islet in a sea of plain. They have the streams, the forests and the storms of the Rockies, and in their Bad Lands they have the fantastic wind-carven buttes and mesas of the Painted Des ert and the Grand Canyon. Also, nowadays they have auto roads. The Black Hills have always been something more than earthly moun tains. The aura of savage supersti tion hangs round them still. There is something rather unearthly even to the most cynical civilized intellect in the shimmering blue beauty of the canyons, in the mud tangle of fan tastically carved cliffs and gullies of the Bad Lands, in the sudden furious mountain storm3 The Black Hills are the home of the Red Gods. One great butte the Indians pointed out as the platform whence their Great Spirit spoke to his people the Sinai of the Dakotas. The Indians were commanded to keep away from the inner valleys of ; the Black Hills, and they followed the mandate in all reverence. The hills were never used in tribal war; the deer and the bear that lived in their fastnesses were safe from spear and arrow. More than that, when the white man found gold in the Black Hills and swarmed over the sacred ground, the Indians fought and died by hundreds to prevent the desecra tion. Nowadays the red man have out grown the old reverence to all appear ances, and they watch the twin sixes spin their blue trail of gasoline vapor over the new roads without any visi ble emotion. Ex. Dr. Henry Jackson Waters, for eight years president of the Kansas State Agricultural college, has re signed to become managing editor of the Weekly Kansas City Star. It is understood that his new position will pay a much larger salary than he now receives and will give him special op portunity for intensive study of agri cultural problems in the middle west Doctor Waters will leave the college as soon as the board can make satis factory arrangements for administra tion of the institution. Doctor Waters for many years has been recognized as a leader in agri culture and education. "A graduate of the University of Missouri, and a former student of the European uni versities he was for many years con nected with the college of agriculture and the state board of agriculture of Missouri. For fifteen years he was dean of the college cf agriculture. In 1909, when the board of resents was seeking the strongest agricul turist in America for president of the Kansas State Agricultural Collesre. it decided unanimously to call Doctor Waters. He accepted, and since that time has been head of the institution, develpoing the teaching, investigation and extension activities to a point of high efficiency. Doctor Water's eminence in aeri- i culture and education has been na tionally recognized. In 1913, he was for a long time considered for the secretaryship of agricuture and in the following years he was mv le spe cial commissioners to the Philippine Islands. His report is regarded as ! the standard work on Philippine ag riculture and education, and adop tion oi nis suggestions nas already resulted in a saving of several mil lion dollars. When war began, President Waters was called into frequent conference with government officials. Recently he was appointed federal food admin istrator for Kansas. He served also as a member of the price fixi ig board on wheat. He is chairman of the state council of defence and an officer in numerous other state and national organizations. He is widely known as an invenvesitgator and writer on agri culture. In the last five years Doctor Waters has received many offers of positions in other parts of the country at large increases in salary. He declined them all, however, feeling that his heart was in the middle west and that in this region he could do his best work. "It is with profund regret that I shall sever my relations with the to be in a position to promote the highest interests of the Kansas State Agricultural college as well as those of the other institutions of Kansas." The board of administration will search the country for the strongest man obtainable to fill the presidency of the college. THE CHURCHES. Methodist Notes. 9:45 A. M. Sunday School. 11a. m.

T. THOLEN & SON. WHAT DOES OSTEOPATHY TREAT Most people seem to think that Os teopathy is some form of rubbing for stiff joints, or poor circulation in old people, and some forms of rheuma tism in younger people. They never associate Osteopathic treatment with sick people, and would not think of sending for an Osteopath for a little child with a raging fever or cholera infantum. If some one should mention sending for an Osteopath for a case of ty- pnoiu iever or pneumonia ne would be thought insane. Here are some of the Questions people ask the Osteopathic physician. not because they are much interested but because they are curious to hear what he will say: Do you take confinement cases? Do you treat fevers? Can you set broken bones? How could you when the joints are so tender treat inflamatory rheu matism? - How long do you attend school? Dou you study surgery? Can you cure a cold? Do you believe in germs?" The above questions are rather absurd in the face of the fact that Osteopaths must pass the state medi cal board examination before thev can ootam a license to practice. These questions, with numberless others, would be humorous to the Os teopath if it did not indicate the al most tragic ignorance of the public as to what true Osteopathy is. The greatest contributing cause, of the lack of understanding regard ing Osteopathy is the immense num ber of quacks and imitators, recently given state licences to pratice without passing any examination by a licensed medical board. These imitators, who laud themselves as better than Osteo paths, have as they move from place to place, left great numbers, of dis appointed customers in their wake. These people think they have tried osteopathy. The collosal ignorance intelligent people have found in these quacks, has been considered characteristic of ostopathy, since their advent; especially in commun ities where osteopathy was not known before. The question occurs to thinking people: "Why does Osteopathy exist? What is the reason for its existence in the face fo the great strides of the drug profession?" These same peo ple will note that the progress of medi cal science has been along the lines of surgery and knowledge of the di sease aftr it exists; not in the cause and prevention of disease.

KANSAS "How Does it Benefit Me ally unfit just at the age when they should be the most fit. This does not indicate material progress in the pre vention of disease. Wonders have been accomplished in subduing ";epi demics, but chronic slow .developing physical and mental diseases are more prevalent than ever before. -' The rapid development of surgery is an open confession of the failure of internal medication. Surgery has developed because of the failure fo other methods to cure the conditions before it has reached the stage where operation is the only apparent chance of recovery. " The tendency of the times i3 jnoTe and more away from giving. Up-to-date physicians give very little drugs. Osteopathy has gone one step far ther, declaring that drugs, given in ternally, are unnecessary, that mar tialing natures own forces within the body and putting them to work is all that is necessary to keep health or regain it when lost. Every protection agency necessary to life and health is secreted within the body itself where the functioning organs bare their normal nerve and blood supply. Dr. T. H. Clover. Little Griefs How bravely, buoyantly, man .bears his galling load of woes and cares! We see him toiling in the mart with fearless eyes and dauntless heart.
