THE FREE PRESS. FEEEZE, PaUUbu. HAYS CITY, KANSAS. KANSAS ITEMS OF INTEREST. Kansas is long on sand plums this Season. The gold fields at Trego in this state are declared to be a fake. Chemists say there is no gold in the shale. If this if true lots of Topeka people have been worked for good-sized chunks of coin. Corn stalks are being used for tele graph poles in some parts of Oklahoma. It is said that they are superior to the old poles, as the projecting leaves do away with the necessity of using climbers. The most valuable single service the Kansas newpapers do is their constant attempt to .educate the people of their communities to beware of peddlers and fakirs and buy only of reputable mer chants. Ed Learned, of Cowley county, sold his farm for 84,000 and has taken the hard, bright, fickle cash to Arizona with him to prospect for gold. Some body should chain him up and appoint a guardian.

It is pleasant to know that the Kan sas corn crop is very much better than the jokes it has suggested. In the early days there were cattle men in the west who contended , that cows could not be taught to drink out of a trough. Twenty-nine Indians from the Chip pewa reservation in North Dakota have arrived at the Haskell institute at Lawrence where the will attend school. One thing that makes it so terrible for a woman to grow old in Kansas is the habit which many of the newspa pers of the state have of speaking of every woman past 60 as "grandma." Lumber men are hustling this year to keep up with the demands made on the yards, and it is stated that every brick plant in the state is behind its orders. This is a great building- year for Kansas.

If the dressmaker doesn't give the customer fits the customer gives the dressmaker fits. The wise man carries his knowledge and his watch for his own use, and not for display.
