Agent Noble sold a carload of grapes to the citizens of Hays and the surrounding country, in about Jhree hours 1200 twenty pound baskets at - 50 cents each. The people seemed hungry for grapes and they went like "hot cakes." The Western Third of the State Teachers Association met in Hays, last week. About 2000 teachers were i present and there was something do- j ing all the time the last three days of the week. The usual programs at the Normal, the Rodeo, the airplane J stunt3 and the free rides by automo bile over the city and out to the Fort Hays Experiment Station pretty well ', took up the time of the visitors. We hope that they were all pleased with the attention and treatment accorded j mem uy me cuizens oi nays, ana win come again some time in the near future. The dare devil aviators advertised ! to put on thrilling stunts here last Saturday, arrived according to sche- dule and proceeded to business at j once. i.very man, woman and child in the city, for once, had their eyes turned heavenward. Even the girls at the post office were looking up wards. The troubles at the postofftce and common mundane affairs were forgotten we doubt even iftheir fiances had been standing near, would they have awarded them a single glance. Well, we were not particular ly enthused, but not for $150,000. in stead of $150. (which the air aggre gation received as a contribution from Hays) would we have under taken to pull off the stunts they did.

Brun gardt's safe at Victoria. The would be "yegg" or "yeggs" forced entrance into the building through the front door. The safe was the object of the visit. The dial and the knob on the safe door were removed. It appeared that a lot of sticky or gummy sub stance had been filled in all around the safe door. A hole had been drill ed and one shot had been fired, but the dotrr tf!d not open. The operator must then have been frightened for no more damage had been done. So far it has not been ascertained if any thinf Vifis hfn sfrnlpn out nf thp store. In the safe Mr. Brungardt kept, among other things, the funds of the i. fc t r iU. l : 1. J !

Normal Ave. Phone No. 483. o26w4 TIME TO CLEAN UP The summer is over, the vegetation is drying fast. A good many of our progressive citizens have already cleaned up their lots of weeds and trash. But there are a large number who have not cleaned up yet and they should get busy at once. All weeds are a fire hazard and a nuisance and should be burned at once. This ap plies especially to persons owning vacant lots. There are many of these lots in the City and a large part of them are covered with the obnoxious Russian thistle. Owners please take notice and do not make it necessary for the City to do the work for you. A. W. Seng, -City Manager. WILL BE IN Ellis, Friday, November 3rd, at the Wayside Inn.
