town last Saturday. He is just

trial of replanting his entire crop of
cantaloupes, which were devastated
by the hail storm last week. The
mayor says that within thirty min
utes after the bail storm he had his
entire cantaloupe patch replanted,
and now has just as good a prospect
as he ever had. The mayor is
probably one of the swiftest agricul
turalists that ever came down the
pike in this section, and has a repu
tation for truthfulness almost equal
to that of Baron Munchausen.—La

Mrs. F. R. Mathews brought up
two cans from the cellar the other

had no difficulty in seeing that they

bad hail storms within three days.
The first came very suddenly Thurs
day night about eight o’clock and
covered a wide scope .of territory
but was not equally destructive in
all localities. The heaviest hail was
along the central part of the valley.

The Arkansaa an Ungrateful River.
The Arkansas river, says the Hut
chinson Bee, has always been called
tbe friend of southwest Kansas. We
have dug its sand out of our eyes,
watched it overflow our crops, con
tributed a few bridges to its maw, but
always stood by it. When the irri
gationists took its moisture out to
enrich eastern Colorado we took it
for granted that the river was not a
party to the robbery, that the water
was purloined while the river was
flat on its bed, so to speak. But
now that the state of Kansas is try
ing to regain from Colorado the pur
loined gems of radiant moisture, the
river refuses to turn state’s evidence
It has, in fact, become an accomplice
of Colorado, for every time the com
missioners go on a trip through the
valley securing testimony, the river
fills up on Colorado rainwater and
goes on a tear. Today the Colora
do investigators are holding a session
in Hutchinson before the United
States commissioner, and the Arkan
sas river is just neatly finishing a
eoup in which enough Colorado
rain was used to flush the river val
ley from the mountains to the Miss
issippi river. Inconsistent river!
And Why Not?
The value of advertising in all
forms of commercial activity is ac
knowledged. There is no longer
any need of putting forth that queer
old picture of our youth, represent
ing two faces, one wreathed in smiles
with “I advertise” issuing from its
mouth, the other —arrived at by
turning the first upside down—the
acme of disappointment and rage,
saying “I don’t.” It matters not
nowadays what you want to dispose
of, whether your corn, your whisky,
your hair or your voice, publicity is

If this is true in business, why not
also in politics ? Is it unprofessional
that a man should urge his claims to
offioe in the newspapers at so muoh
per line? The practice is common
in the South, and is seriously re
garded. Now we find it in the state
of Pennsylvania, where a couple of
candidates for city treasurer of
Reading are using the advertising
columns of the local papers to boom
their campaigns. One of the con
testants thus sapiently discussses
the value of the scheme:
“No matter what the subject, if
you want the attention of the people
in general attracted to it the best
way is through the newspapers.
While it appears to be an innovation
I believe that political advertising
will beoome as universal, natural and
indispensable in making the candi
dates known and familiar to the peo
pie as by posters, letters, charts,
cards, buttons, etc., and that money
spent in that direction is money well
“One particular advantage in
newspaper political advertising is
that your announcement of aspiiing
to a high office in the gift of the
municipality reaches practically
every fireside within the city’s limits
and can be seen by that class of
voters who do not take an active
part in politics or get to places where
they are discussed and other adver
tising devices are displayed or pass
ed around. They seethe announce
merit and pledges in their own
homes.” —Boston Journal.
A New Era for the West.
The story is told of a Britisher
who yisited a friend in Montreal.
Tbe latter remarked that he was
compelled to go to Denver, and ask
ed the man from England to accom
pany him. The Englishman con
eented, and then asked how soon
they would be hack. When told
that it would take a lay to go from
Montreal to Toronto, a day and a
night from Toronto to Chicago, and
two days and a night from Chicago
to Denver, and the same length of
time to return, he said:
“I cannot go; I must start for
London tomorrow night.”

The truthfulness of the story may
bo questioned, but the ignorance
that it portrays an to tbe size of the
United States is not overdrawn, nor
are tbe eastern citizens of this conn
try who are littleor no wiser as bard
to find as might be wished.
Year by year, however, the tide of
travel westward, for education as
well as for business, is increasing.
There is a growing desire in Arneri
cans to know more about Amorica.
And there is reason to believe that
the tendency will be observed in
constantly increasing strength until
an appreciation of the true import
ance of the west becomes general.
One of the transcontinential rail
roads has announced three daily
through Pacific coast trains for the
approaching summer, with the state
ment that the movement of people
westward to make tneir homes, after
they have been west to look the
country over, probably will make
this service pormanent. T|{» Lewis
and Clark Ceuteuial will be instru
mental in attracting tens of thou
sands of inhabitants to the western
states from eastern cities. To visit
the land of promise and see it blos
soming as the rose will be sufficient
inducement for many Americans
anxious to better their condition to
go in and possess it.
It is likely, also, that ths influence
of Theodore Roosevelt, though him
self born an easterner, yet a wester
ner of the most progressive type, is
turning aud will turn toward tbe
west the attention of multitudes who
until he became a national figure
never had given a thought to any
thing west of the Mississippi. His
interest in western projects and his
frequent visits to western states can
not fail to have the effect of a per
sonal indorsement of a strong west
eru movement,
With the railway facilities now
availiable and projected, with the
government aiding in converting the
desert lands into farms, and with the
most cultured families of the east
represented in every western com
munity today, the pioneer epoch in
the history of the west is ended. —
