0. E. Turner, of the department ot
physical training at the Normal, baa
prepared specifications fjr rural school
(Tame contest. In tbe average rural
school tbe number of students Is too
small to have organized athletic
teams, and to supply the need of
healthful play the game contest Idea
was stimulated. All the children,
boys and girls alike, can enter Into
tbe sport ot the playground games,
and by following this schedule the
recess and noon hours become periods
of well-organized aud helpful play.
When the children have developed a
considerable proficiency In the games,
it Is planned for the schools to hold
contests under the direction of the
county superintendent.
The rules to be followed are elmple
and are: Eacb game to be played In
ten minutes. For every game won
the winners are to be credited with
five pelnts. If no game has been
completed, the side having the ad
vantage at the end of playing time
shall be credited with five points. If
at tbe end of playing time the sides
are at a tie neither side shall score.
The rules govern the games of Suatch
tbe Handkerchief, Leapfrog Race,
Eraser Relay Race for Girls, Dodge
Ball for Boys, Dodge Ball for Girls,
Black and White, Seven Sticks and
German Ball.
A description of field and equip
ment Is fully given, with Instructions
to teachers In arranging the contests.
A cut of a model playground is sbown
wltb full directions for marking out.
This Is' but one of tbe agencies tbe
Normal Is using In its extension work
for tbe schools of tbe state.
Something Entirely New

ordinary interest is made elsewhere

The lost is found referring of
course to the cat who plaintive notes
disturbed tbe occupants of tbe second
floor of the city hall from Tuesday
until Saturday evening when Chief
McClane of tbe fire department de
tected the abused feline in the drawer
of the city attorney's desk, Tbe
city sleuths had tegun to tear up tbe
rostrum on which tbe mayor's desk is
placed but desisted when they finally
racozni&ed from whence came that
mournful mew.
Drawing on the strength of its
several lives the cat did not seem
much the worse for its sojourn with
city ordinances and started out in tbe
world to report what it had learned
of legal lore during its solitary con
flnement. The question now agitat
ing tbe minds of tbe city hall de
nlzens is the Identity of the miscreant
hn locked u d Door Grimalkin, Not
one of them will enter a plea of guilty
and they are inclined to fasten the
guilt on some member of the council
which was in session Monday evening.

Information Just made publloby
the director of the office of publio
roads shows that Indiana leads all
the states of the Union in mileage of
improved roads. Most of the im
proved roads of Indiana and Ohio
are composed of gravel and were, for
the most part, built by the farmers in
working out the taxes In many
cases the gravel is dumped on the
Sroad without proper spreading or
rolling Roads constructed In this
way seldom give entire satisfaction.
The eight leading good-roads states,
as shown by the data compiled by the
director, are: Indiana, Ohio, New
York, Wisconsin, Kentucky, Illinois,
California, and Massachusetts.
The gain in New York, according to
the director of the office of public
roads, is due largely to the fact that
the state has bonded itself for 50 mil
lion dollars,' and that five millions
a year or more is being expended by
the state, in addition to an equal
amount by the counties, in building
state highways. New York is leading
all the states in actual progress at
present, and if the pace is maintained
will take the lead over Indiana and
Ohio in actual mileage in a few years.

"Five years ago two doctors told
me I had only two years to live."
This startling statement was made
by Stillman Green, Malachite, Col. J
"They told me I wouia aie witn con
sumption. It was up to me then to
try the best lung medicine and I
began to use Dr, King's New Dis
covery. It was well I did, for Jtoday
I am working and believe I owe my
lfe to this great throat and lung
cure that has cheated the grave of
another victim." Its folly to suffer
with coughs, colds, or 'other throat
and lung troubles now. Take the
cure that's safest. Price 50 cents

Cbanute should have a special

citizens themselvjs and not tbe city

hauled off was tbe report given to
the council Monday evening by Hayes
chairman of the health committee to
which the proposl ion had been
referred. He urped that tbe ordi
nance concerning tbe disposal of
garbage be rigidly enforced, but be
opposed having the children drafted
Into service in cleaning up debris.
Freeman suggested setting a special
clean-up day after wb'c'i arrests
should be made If premises were not
put In proper condition. Haye was
willing but said the rep mslb.llty
should be upon the police depar:ment
rather than his committee.
Among others matters disposed of
was the allowing of Dr. L D John
son's bill of $23 for attending Chas.
Long in the city jail when his arm was
injured by a shot from Chief of Police

Freeman reported that the city had
settled wilh Dr. M A Duncan as city
physician up to January 1 except for
bill of 114.50 for services several
months ago when he was called upon
by the Chief of Police in two cases.
The latter bill was allowed upon
Freeman's motion. The controversy
concerning the quarantine charges is
yet to be settled.

Bishop Quayle Delivered
Eloquent Address.
A total of 17,874, was pledged
in forty minutes Tuesday night foe
the expanse of the reconstruction of
the First Methodist church building
of Chanute which is to begin as
soon as the weather will permit.
The service was in charge of Bishop
Quayle who had just concluded an
eloquent address on the subject of
"The Mission and Message of the
Church," The pledges were made
by the members and congregation
of the Methodist church and in
cluded an appreciable amount from
members of other churches who
were among the large number who
had gathered to hear Bishop Quayle
and share in the inauguration of the
financial work of enlarging the
edifice. The committee was to
bring the total up to $20,000 this
The individual pledges ranged
from that of R. N. Allen for ten
shares at $100 each down to $z
from children in the Sunday school.
Each amount as rnnounced was
greeted with a hearty "Thank You'
from the enthusiastic Bishop on the
platform who repeated to D. M.
Kennedy, acting as clerk, the
pledges as they were called out by
Rev. J. R. McFadden and other
members of the finance committee
distributed .through the audience,
The Ladies Aid Society pledged
$4,000 and the Sunday school and
Epworth League were also repre
sented asorganizatiensinthe giving.
The announcement of a pledge from
the Ladies Aid Society of the
Presbyterian church was greeted
with applause.
Bishop Quayle had closed his
address with the statement that as the
church is the custodian of the des
tinies of life that are immortal it
should be given an adequa'e work- -shop.
His theme had been th.'1
there is something radically wroi
with the world but the cause is sin
and not social conditions.
"No place in the world is there
less to fuss about than in Kansas,
and in no place do they fuss more,"
said the Bistiop, "You ought to
be happy but you are usually in a
ferment of unrest. If Kansas has
no sliver in its foot it will go out
and buy one. But the unrest is
every where. The ailment of city
and country is the same.
- "The ' nly trouble of the world
is Sin. What are we going to do
about it? Send the people to
school? No, education won't do
away with sin. We must slay sin.
Give the world the religion of the
Lord Jesus Christ. Tne only in
stitution to' clean up sin is the
church.' God will cure sin through
the church."
