With a man on first base, the second man of tbe lug alls team went to bat aud lined a hot one directly over the second baseman. It looked like a safe bit aud u good one but as it started sh leaped into the air just high enough to bring it down with one hand. The ball was batted, caught uud a double play made by Eaeb iu just about two seconds, and if tbe game had been a close one half the crowd might have fainted. This great play was followed up by Eash iu the tilth fining with a beautiful hut When Your Insurance Rates are Popped Up Tell Your Troubles to the Insurance Commissioner.

Ford county young people who de sire to teach will have the benefit in the future of preparing themselves here at home, so that they will have tbe necessary training, and sj that tbey will have a certificate good any where ra the state!' Tbe Normal training course, wbiuh has bteu estab lished by tbe state .for biifh schools appioved by tbe State Bourd of Edu cation, will be put in the Dodge City high school this year, and the juniors aud seniors of the high school may enter tbe class and receive the same training that they would receive at tbe State Normal. Should any of them wish to study further in tbe State Normal they will be accredited with two years' work done iu the high school here, so that the complete course at tbe State Normal would tuke only two years; Tbi work wag laid out for tbe State Board o' E lucu tion by the last legislature, and ninety nine schools in the state have been approved by tbe state board for tbe coin se, Dodge City being among tbe number. Tbe Dodge City high school will receive $500 from the state toward the exj eus of this course, and it is prob able that an extra teacher will have to be; employed to tuke charge of tbe work. Under this sjstem, auyyoung person of Ford county may fit him self, or beraelf, fcr a teacher without leaviug the county, and bold a certifi cate that will be recognized by any county in tbe state. With this addition to tb regular high school course, Dodge City and Ford county will have excellent educational advan tages. Tbe question of more room is odo which will come up in the near future for the Board of Education to settle here. With this addition the high school will probtbly crowd tbe third ward school building, and it is only a question of a short time until another ward school building will be needed) but in any event this was to be expect ed in a growing town like Dodge City. In fact tbe school buildings have not been hardly sufficient for the past three years There are a lot of young people in the county who should take advantage of this high school, especially as the Normal training coarse is to be added, and the high school attendance ought to be increased rapidly. Tbe new law is intended to give advantages to tbe pupils all over tbe county as well as to tbe towns where the schools are located. In tact more of the young people from tbe outside schools are likely to take a (vantage of the teach ers' training course, than the young people of the towns. It will be important that arrange ments be made in Djdge City, either by the club method, or by some other, bo that pupils from the district schools can secure inexpensive board while attending Bcbool here. Such arrange ments are made in all school towns, and it causes many to complete school, where they otherwise could not.

If the people along the rente of the Eureka Canal want water in tbe ditch for fall crops, they can help just now by furnishing teams and men. If a large force can be put on the ditch the first of the month for a week of two the work of cleaning out the ditch can be accomplished, and with the force they expect on tbe well at the bead of the ditch, the watttr would soon be running across Ford county. General Manager Traylor spent Tuesday night in Djdge City and left Wednesday on a trip of inspec tion of the engineering gang that is working down the canal near Spear ville. Mr. Traylor reports that twenty-five teams were at work on the ditch Tuesday, aui it is ex pected that they will have forty teams at work by the end ot the week. Contracts will be let the first of August for plowing out the bottom of the ditch from Ingalls to a point in the neighborhood of Wright, pro ceding the final scraper work. It will greatly hurry the work if parties along the line will take con tracts for two to four miles, and it is to the interest of the land owners to see that this work it done quickly, There has been Bome trouble during h".rve.-it time to get men and teams on the ditch work, and this has caused a great delay. Mr. Traylor Bays that they will have water in the ditch for fal wheat if plenty of teams can be hired to do the work. It looks like each neighborhood through which lb" ditch passes would see that the ditch people were not delayed on account of difficulty of hiring a force. LAST NOTICE.
