land bordering on the lake for a

dug and Lake Lomond connected
with Lake Sable. The two iakes
are separated only by a marsh
that can be easily cut through
and thus several miles of water
be obtained.Bagley Times.

Topeka, Kan., May 23.Gov. Bailey
had his first experience this week with
"The fellow was a mechanic." said
the governor. "I asked him what he
would charge to do a certain amount
of work, and he had figured for some
time before he finally called me to one
side and in a very excited manner
said: i am going to do this thing for
$60. and 10 per cent of that goes to the
'governor.' My first impulse was TO
kick him out of my office, but I merely
told him that the governor did not
need the money, and asked him whnt
he would take to do the job for the
state alone, and chari/^ nothing for the
governor. He finally agreed to take
$50 for the work."
