With a ten day outing as the incen tive, the boys made every effort to qualify, and the membership of the local Scout organization had reached t the century mark by June 1921. Of this number, forty-one had reached the standing of first class scouts, and consequently were qualified to accom pany the tour. Including officers and drivers the party numbered exactly fifty. Three Reo Speed Wagons were commissioned to carry the party, one hjauling the baggage and camping ap paratus and several boys, the other two carrying only passengers. The trip as originally planned cal led for a tour which would take in five states, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Colorado, and Kansas, cover ing a distance of over one thousand miles. The proposed route would take them through some of the most wild and rugged districts of the Rocky Mountains, at times reaching an al titude of ten thousand feet. And the time allowed was only ten days I Everything was carried out true to schedule. On the morning of June 14 the party left Liberal, and were home again by the evening of June 23. In the mean time they had covered a thousand miles of travel, passed thru a score of towns, enjoyed the plea sures of camp life and visited scenes of beauty and educational interest, air without the slightest mishap or illness. The 1922 tour will be started about the 16th of July, and about fifty or sixty boys will make up the party. The Reo Review.

PELLETTE .EYESIGHT SPECIALIST Rooms in the Peoples State Bank Building RAILROAD BOOM IN WEST j Turn to your map of Kansas and you will note that the Atchison,' Topeka & Santa Fe . railway runs through Haskell County. Sublette and Satanta are on this road and are the only two towns in the county that are on the railroad. . You will readily see by tracing it, that this road gives direct connections - with Dodge City, Great Bend, Hutchin son, Wichita and Kansas City, thus reaching the main markets of the State and the west. In addition to this road the south western part of Kansas is experien cing a big railroad building boom. The Kansas and Oklahoma is building out of Liberal, Kansas, northwest to. the Colorado state line, a distance of about seventy miles. Also the same( road is building a connection with the Wichita Falls and Northwestern at Forgan, Oklahoma, about SO miles : southehast of Liberal, thus opening the Gulf Coast markets to this coun try. This will stimulate competition and will result no doubt in a better. price for our farm products. However, more directly are we in terested in the Santa Fe extension of the line that' runs through this coun-j ty. It is being built out of Satanta , some sixty miles, in a western direc- j tloa toward the Colorado line. In doing this it penetrates Grant and j Stanton Counties, which heretofore have had no railroad. Work on these new lines is under way and the steel is being laid. There is no joker in the building of these two roads. A vast territory-will be opened up and this land is yet cheap, but will not remain so very long. With these new roads southwestern Kansas is going to undergo another wonderful development. This is the 'time to get some of this cheap land.
