CHITTENDEN For County Superintendent LOUIS CHRISTIANSEN Commissioner 3rd District JOHN KRUGER Commissioner 1st District FRANK ATWOOD A KANSAN'S IDEA OF A VACA TION This ;s a story about a Kansan's! idea of a vacation. The fellow is Ed Clemans, Democratic candidate for. Secretary of State. Mr. Clemans lives at Longtcn, Elk county, where i he has for a number of years been in ; the lumber business. His early home j is Linn county, out in the country j where the farmers raise big crops and big families. And that has to do with Ed Cle mans' vacation notion. There is one big family of Ed's old neighbors nura-l bering fourteen, and six of them are their town clean, healthful and beau voters. And they are all Democrats, tiful, for there are lots of ways of But that won't make any difference in Linn county, for Republicans and Democrats down there are for him. It's the same among the big Repub lican families. But Ed Clemans likes to go and stay a few days with these farmers with big families because, -he says, there is no second-table busi ness for the smaller children. At meals a great table is spread with good things to eat like fried chicken, brown gravy, biscuits, etc., and all the family and visitors assemble for a banquet three times a day. "Ah, that's the way to live and enjoy life, and have a real vacation," this old warrior told a bunch of Democrats in Topeka. Now, then, if Ed Clemans likes large Democratic families who always vote the ticket straight, and who live like kings, he .should come out to Ellis county and have a little vaca tion. We understand he has prom ised our local Democrats at Hays and over the county to .come and visit with the folks between the election and the time he ; to take charge of the Secretary of State's office in Ed Clemans is one of the Demo cratic candidates who has never vis ited his Democratic brethren in Ellis county, but from the way they voted for him at the late primary it is quite evident they have heard of his high standing among his neighbors of i southeast Kansas. Not more than one-third of the vote of Ellis county was polled at the recent primary, but Mr. Clemans went away ahead of his I two Republican opponents, receiving 584 votes, to 277 for D. O. McCray and 1G9 for Frank Ryan, or a major ity over both of 13S. That vote given to Mr. Clemans is probably one-third of the Democratic strength of Ellis county, and it is presumed that he will lead the Democratic ticket with from 1,200 to 1,500 votes in this county. If he could get out here and spend one of his kind of "vacations" he might even do better than that. A MESSAGE TO KANSAS WO MEN (By Floy Horine, Grinnell.) We are sure every Kansas woman wants her country to be the best in the world. But we wonder how many of our Kansas women realize what an important part they have in making i their country the best. Our nation is what its s states make i by their homes and what represents i the home as well as the children found in those homes, and it is the mother who has the greater responsi- biliy in 'the training of these chil- dren. The father must be away from home most of their waking hours, but j lt is the mther who has them under j ner influence both day and night dur- j ing their most unpressionable age. It is the mother who must teach them to . j be kind to each other and their play- , , mates, to be respectful, helpful and j I dependable. j I It is the good mother who has an j interest in her child's school life, who ' has his confidence in his childish j troubles and above all keeps her child ! interested at home after school hours. ' It is to be regretted that the word ' "flapper" has ever been applied to our American girlhood, but with the right co-operation from the mother, it is not likely to endure long. Mothers should wake up to the pos sibilities that are hidden in the gang spirit of our girls and boys if they want to blot out this curse of flapper ism. Children are full of energy and en thusiasm. If you don't find action and interest for them they will find it for themselves. And their imma ture judgment is not safe to depend upon. They will do things in a crowd that they would never do individually. Perhaps you have talked to your daughter until you have reached the limit of your vocabulary and yet she carries her powder puff, rouge box an dlipstick wherever she goes and stays out late at nights because all the other girls do. Why don't the club women organ ize departments of their clubs for these girls? Let them help with decorations and serving Give them a part on the programs and help them in making out a club program. Make them feel you are interested in their work and that you appreciate their interest in yours. Take them to visit children's wards in hospitals, to orphanages and to the poorer districts of their town, so they may see the-things they might do to make life better for children who are not so fortunate as they. Get them interested in making interesting children in civic affairs They might have a club dance pic nic or theatre party once in a while with their mothers, so they will not feel they are giving up all their good times. Once they become interested in wholesome fun and doing some thing worth while there will be no more use for the word flapper. The woman who has a comfortable home and no children should share this re sponsibility of motherhood with the woman who through lack of educa tion, support or ancestral backbone or because of all three conditions is making a failure of bringing up her children for here lies the greatest danger to our communities and na tion. While such children are small they are a menace in school and among other children. After they are grown they are only good mater ial for I. W. W.'s and Iteds. Yet if taken in time there is a world of good to be found in the child of the street. j We have three State institutions in Kansas: The Boys' Industrial School at Topeka, the Girls' Indus trial School at Beloit and the Reform atory at Hutchinson overcrowded and with a waiting list of children who have come under the jurisdiction of these institutions through some in fraction of the law. While teaching at the Boys' Indus trial school I often talked with wo men visiting the institution who call ed the boys little dears, remarked what nice little- fellows they were, what remarkable work thty were do ing and how their hearts ached for them. They usually insisted that they be given the names of some of the boys so they could write them let ters of encouragement and send them candy. While their intentions were of the best and their letters and boxes did make the boys happy, I always wanted to remind them that these same bright, .well behaved, little boys who were turning out such creditable work, both in the school and the shops were the same little fellows who were running the streets and allies in their j home town. At home they called them little devils and taught their children to shun them. Children of these institutions are not criminals, but simply unfortun ate and it is very unfortunate indeed that they must commit crimes and j be pronounced unlawful before they I attract your attention. So in behalf of the future of these children, let's hope they find a place on your club-work program this win ter. Kansas Woman's Journal.

RECITAL The Recital at the Normal auditor ium last Monday night, by Miss Helen Pestana, under the auspices of the ladies of the Presbyterian Church, was a delightful event and drew a splendid audience. Miss Pestana was accompanied by her sister, Mrs. Neis wanger, and assisted by Mr. Roberts, Mrs. Wooster and Mrs. Malloy, giving a variety to the program which was greatly enjoyed. The atmosphere of appreciative listeners enabled the per formers to be at their best. Not only the Aid Society for whose benefit the recital was freely given, but also Miss Pestana 's many friends in Hars which is her home and where she has render ed valuable service in the past by her musical talent, expressed their gratifi cation for the opportunity of hearing her again on this occasion. She leaves this week, to resume her work near New York City. ms i me noiauie arraj oi;jy Qf children who has been unable auctions ever arranged for the Amer-j to get jiar work.

These men are some of the best "Dare-Devil" stunt flyers in the coun try and will give us the same exhibi- I tion that they put on for the largest fairs, aerial meets, etc. i They have performed at the New I York state fair, and Missouri, Kansas i and Oklahoma state fairs. Their per- j formance in Sterling, Colorado, drew j ! a crowd of 15,000 people. Chubby Watson will perform the! fallowing feats: Stand on head on J ; v.ng,, atauu u uue xuut, ausnu uit , hands on top wing, hang from lower, plane by toes, and by one foot. Hangs from a trapeze seven feet below the landing gear. Hangs by his teeth from this trapeze and spins like a top. Lots of other stunts in addition. ! This performance will take place j over the main business section of the' city about 3 p. m., Saturday. ! THE SPIRIT OF FRATERNITY i The development of brotherly af fection in lodges and fraternities and other organizations is one of the fin est aspects of our so-called selfish American 'life. Now if the same j spirit can only come into the commun- uy as a wnoie, ana estaDiisn interest in and care for the weakest and most j struggling elements of people, , our social problems will be largely solved, There is too much tendency for folks to think only of their own com fort and prosperity and pay no atten tion to how others are getting along. Persons of wealth and good., incomes will fret and complain because good servants are scarce and high priced, or because labor costs high and they get efficient service. Their com plaints are often perfectly justified, and they may be gouged by shirking help. But if they would compare their situation with that of many struggling people, they would realize that they have little to complain of. They should thiiiK of the man with a fam- contemplate the condition of the widow who has children to support. If they will go down into the poorer quarters of their own home town, they will find plenty of people whose lot is infinitely worse than theirs. These complainers have perhaps had to give up some luxuries that they used to enjoy. But many of these people have too many luxuries, and it would do them no harm to cut down some features of their lavish livine. i and find more of their pleasures from association with the common run of people. The enjoyments that come from extravagant spending quickly aiaappear. The world will be in a good deal of turmoil until this spirit of considera tion and friendship becomes nT&re general and until people do their ut most to remove evils that cause suf fering and distress. Lindsborg News-Record. WAR FINANCE CORPORATION The War Finance Corporation has received repayment of $2,000,000 on account of the loans aggregating $10,430,000 made to the Chicago, Rock Island and Pacific Railway Com pany under the war powers of the Corporation in December, 1918, and January, 1919. It is expected that the balance now outstanding, $2,930, 000, will be repaid in the near future. Remember when you want pressing guaranteed work you should patronize Bissing Brothers on South Chestnut street, Phone 208. DOES ADVERTISING PAY? William Wrigley, Jr., the success ful chewing-gum magnate, talking with a smoking-car audience the other day, was telling the others how much a year the chicle people spent lor ad vertising. "But, "Mr. Wrigley, you've spent millions of dollars and created a splendid demand now; everybody talks and chews Spearmint. Your de man is steady and growing. Isn't it a waste to continue spending so many hundred thousands of dollars a year in publicity?" one of his auditorss asked. The Spearmint king thought a mo ment, and then replied: "My friend, if I were to stop ad vertising, it would be just like taking the engine off this train. It would slow down, and after a little while stop. Advertising is the locomotive of business, and if you don't have it, business comes to a stop. Wall Street Journal. W. P. Wasinger, dentist, in com pany with'Billie Geyer, sustained a severed artery in his right hand last Monday night, when the car in which they were riding suddenly turned tur tle. The two men were driving east on the Golden Belt highway when the accident occurred. At a point three and one-half miles west of Ellis, where the highway makes a reverse i curve ana crosses tne union x-acmc I tracks. Gever "who was driving the i car, was reported to have been blind-; i ed and confused by the glaring lights ! i of an approaching car. j In effort to avert a collision, the i machine deflected from the road and! crashed into an embankment throw-i QCCupants to the groUnd and , ,ma1. VlQ r TV, i were picked up by passing autoists and brought to Ellis for treatment. t Geyer escaped with shakeup and bruises -Review-Headlight. ! As predicted, the price of paving is coming down considerably. In the Kansas City Star of Sunday, was an article from the Kansas State High way commission showing that the price of paving State roads in the state, eighteen feet wide, of concrete, has been reduced from over $40,000 a mile last year to the latest contract given out last week, of less than $30,- 000 a mile, hundreds of miles having v, ;,rQ ii of 0f tv.of ure. The Hutchinson News of last Saturday gives a new low figure in .street paving, their City Commission ers last Thursday giving out con tracts for paving several streets in that city, with asphalt at $2.25 a square yard, or $8,046 for three blocks of the paving. Brick paving was let at $2.90 a square yard. Another street, Sherman avenue, leading to the Reformatory, was also ordered laid with sheet asphalt at the same price. The lowest bids in Hays have been $3.07 for brick and $2.30 for the asphalt, both guaranteed for five years, as in Hutchinson. Probate Judge John Gross and L. J. Stein attended Federal Court in Leavenworth, this week. It was claimed that the Ford car which Mr. Gross purchased of Stein some time ago, was a stolen one. It was claim ed by a man from another city Den ver, we believe. It had been pur chased by Mr. Stein and sold to Gross. They beat the case and the car will remain in Hays. Some forty stolen cars were parked near the temple of justice and owners had been found for all but two of them. Twelve were Fords and the balance were of other makes, with- perhaps Buicks and Cad illacs predominating. One man, caught the first of the week, near i Leavenworth, with a stolen car, had f five galons of alcohol and a complete j outfit for changing numbers on cars. The Gulf ports are holding their own in the way of grain shipments. The official reports show that last week there were shipped from the Gulf ports, 337,000 bushels, while the eastern ports show only 1,354,000 bushels. Last year from July 1st to October loth there were shipped from all American ports 93,689,000 bushels whila this year for the same period, it was 65,268,000 bushels, and nearly all of this is wheat, little corn, oats or barley being shipped from America to foreign ports. The merchants of the city put up $150 to an aggregation of airplane stunt flyers to put on a show Satur day afternoon for the benefit of the teachers who are here attending the State Teachers Association. They will perform all manner of daring stunts. It will be interesting and thrilling. i ALEX J. DREILING Sup. Sergt. 3C-th Co. 164th D. B. Camp Funston, 1918. Republican Candidate for . County Treasurer of Ellis County, 1922 Your Vote will be Appreciated Topeka, Oct. 17. The Kansas,. Non-Partisan League is going to bat for the Democratic state ticket this year. The NPL has been made up largely of Democrats, but it also drew a fair sprinkling of Republicans, a few Socialists, and some Independ ents. But since the endorsement of Davis for G6vernor, only the more radical are following the leaders. One of the principal things for which the same element in the party contended was lower taxes. They know now that state taxes will be cut from 2.235 mills to 1.66 mills, and that has convinced the great majority of the farmers that the party of Lin coln was the "Grand Old Party" they always thought it was. Consequent ly there is a steady drift to the Re publicans, and the Democrats would like a new issue. A SHABBY HOUSE OR A SHABBY MIND Haven't you been in houses where lovely flowers stood all about, and everything was spick-and-span, but the library table was strewn with papers and magazines of the trashiest description? Is it a good thing to have the furniture of the house the best that money can buy, and to furnish the mind with silly and dis reputable things in the way of read ing? Better by far have a shabby house than a shabby mind. The shab by furniture can be burned or sold, but what can be done for the shabby mind?

THE YOUTH'S COMPANION Commonwealth Ave. & St. Paul St., Boston, Mass. (Subscriptions received at this Office) The Stockon Record last week, printed the following: "A U. S. Marshal was here last week and served notice on seven inno cent owners of alleged stolen cars, ordering them to appear Tuesday, with the property at the federal court at Leavenworth. The following car avan which left Monday morning; with the seven cars: Harry Eades, L. H. Ochampaugh, Roy McMichael, Earl Bartholomew, Chet Thompson, Bert 'deary, Pete Romey, John Park er, and Sheriff Hindman. It is hoped the caravan will be as long when they return." This is a warning not to buy or trade for an auto of a stranger, no matter how low the price or attractive the car. It may be a stolen one. WOMEN (MUST BE NATURALIZE!
