Miller and all others who can get away that day Th'B conference ia the beginning of a movement which will be ia progress in Kansas for the next ten years. The building of the highway is being seriously contemplated by the town, counties and townships along the route ' from Hutchinson through DooVe City and on to the western state line. Such a highway built would have a network of good township roada leading to it from the north and south all along the line, By building a short stretch of road the townships north and south could connect with the big highway and have a roid to their local market that would be worth a fortune to the var ions townships. This highway would be lined at certain seasons of the year by wide tired wagons hauling more than twice the loads now hauled to the markets. Many of them will no donbt be drawn by traction en cines. Thus a farmer could sell and deliver his crop of wheat within very few days' time, selling when the price was best- The highway will also bring a steady stream of travel through the country. The Eansans will make a summer trip to Colorado via this route in their auto mobiles. The land along the high way and for miles back on each side of it will be increased in value. The present is an era of good road building, and an era when there is to be a general movement from the town to the farm. Farm life will be greatly improved when all of the farms are located on good roada Distances will bo shortened, and the preference of living in town which has always been noticeable in this country will disappear. The conference at Hutchinson next Monday, is the one definite move ment on foot in Kansas at this time The territory to be crossed by the contemplated highway) the Arkansas Valley is sure to become the greatest agricultural district of the state. It will attain that end much quiokerif the highway i built. A government good roads man will bet the conference from Wash ington v, G. and the representatives at the conference will try to get the government interested in the move ment The state engineer will no doubt be present, and it will be a great meeting It is hoped that Dodge Oi'y will have a 'very large delega-j tifu nn band at Hutchinson next Monday. ' TODD STILL ACCURATE Former Weather Observer Hare Has Them Taking Notice ol Forecaitt In New York. George T. Todd, a former weather observer at Dodge City is just as big a man at bis present post as he was here when he used to send word to the ranches to round np their long horns' and get ready for a blizzard. The Albany Journal of January 18 in an editorial comment says: "Our own weather dispenser . Todd, whom the call of duty separ ated from his beloved Kansas tome years ago, since which time he has become a respected and popular cit izen of Albany, deserves credit for the accuracy we are almost tempted to say, exasperating accuracy of his predictions since the beginning of this year. "Wheu Mr. Todd said "colder," the temperature promptly went down; when he said, "about zero to night," zero it was; when he foretold rising temperature, the mercury obligingly climbed; when he said once more, "colder," it slid down again; when he predicted snow, there was shoveling to do within 24 hours. Just now, the snow or rain intermezzo is happening jast as he foretold it. Almost it seemed as if the weather was at his beck and call; but wo will not assume that, for then it would be in order to chide him for having furnished so much excessive winteriness. Rather, he shall have credit for exact observations and cal culations, which defied the erratic storm centers and areas of depres sion, and other things of that sort that have a habit of turning predic tions topsy-turvy when the forcaster turns his head for a moment. "If now, when the season for agreeable weather eomes, Mr. Todd will as accurately predict seasonable conditions, he may expect a delega Hon of grateful citizens tp visit him in his watch tower and bestow npon him aaedai, or a loving cup, or a laurel wreath, or some other fitting token of appreciation and esteem.'

Martin Brothers have billed a floe pro duction of "Faust" at the opera bouse here on February 1. A Pea Moines pa per says egarding the company which will appear here: "Olg Verne White's version of Goethe's "Faust" was spec tacularly staged at the Grand yesterday. While the production is obvlonsly In tended to appeal to a popular taste, Goethe loses nothing by last night's presentation ol the drama, which, was careful and conscientious In every way. The soenlo embellishments and the free rendering of Uoetbe'a lines certainly do not detr iot from the deeper Interest of the piece as far as the average theater goers might be concerned.

His performance was tranquil and realized, without ostentation, the specious wlokedness of Mepblsto. The Marguerite of Miss Adele Barley was tender, womanly and refreshingly real. Her scenes with Faust especially, were carried off with a quiet and affect- ng slnoerlty. Mr. Chaa. . Bird played the part of Faust with excellent repres sion.

HE CAN'T HELP IT Chalk Beesou's Tight-Laced Haughty Manner Has Caused Comment After being known here for half a life time as just a plain westerner, it has been hinted around on the quiet for the past two weeks that Chalk Beeson has been getting stiff and np ish. He has even been asked to his fae, if he is getting haughty in his old age. Chalk could have given an explanation which would have sham ed his acousers into an abject apol ogy, bat that explanation would have been more or less humiliating, and he has hesitated to make it This paper is not eo sensitive about the matter as Chalk is, and does not mind telling the facts. All of these wrong impressions about Chalk are easily cleared away. Three weeks ago he had a slight accident in which he had two of his ribs broken. The surgeon who attended him instructed that he have his body bandaged and that the bandage be stout and tight until the ribs had time to heal. When he oonaidered taking a cinch on himself, the first thing Chalk thought of for the purpose was double girth, eaddle, but as that would be too heavy and so great a I part of it useless, he cast about for another idea and the happy thought of a corset struck him. And there you are. He has been going about wearing a tight corset ever since, and ia continually possessed with a wild desire to pitch and buck like a bron cho wearing its first double girth saddle.
