X Hays City Free Press Harry Freest, Owner. John H. Freese, Ed. & Bus. Mgr. HAYS CITY, KANSAS. Birds as Air-Ship Models, The explanation of bird-flight that occurs to the casual observer is that these winged creatures fly by flapping their wings. But all birds do not do so. In fact, the birds that fly the best and moat fearlessly can proceed for 1 hours and sometimes for a whole day, and not infrequently against the force of a storm, without making the slightest perceptible movement of their wings. Although the secret of flight on motionless wings is at pres ent beyond the solution of science, the Drinciple involved gives promise of being the one that would be most suc cessfully applied by man in aerial travel. It is true that nearry all. in sects and most of the small birds pro ceed by beating their wings, some times with almost incredible velocity. iPossibly the air-ships of the future, particularly those designed for short trips, may proceed by this method. But the present te...

A plan for a cow stable with several new features has been designed by F. M. Logan, commissioner of live stock And dairying for British Columbia. In the Illustration the construction of the floor, stall and manger are shown. The floor, which is of wood, Is Inexpensive and will last probably ten years. A concrete floor may be preferred, in which case the method of lying pre vents the animal slipping into the gut ter. The gutter should be 10 Inches c"eep and 12 inches wide. The walks behind the cows are five feet from the gutter to the outside of wall which will be sufficient if the manure is taken out with a litter car Tier, but if it is to be loaded into a cart and taken away with a horse, the sta ble should be made three or four feet wider, so the passages will be wide enough to admit of a cart and ho...

Editorial Gossip Isn't it about time for someone to agitate the question of the new foot ball rules? Some people who go to church seem to have an idea that the preacher is talking to the gallery. Just before dollar wheat is quoted, a lot of keen farmers will unload and break the market. Home Rule. According to the calendar. Summer is over to-day, but the calendar doesn't say anything about the weather. The mayor and two of the concilmen of Hays own automobiles. There is probably no town in the state, west of Salina, which can make as good a showing. The difference between a ball player who plays for the grand-stand and one who does not is oft-times the difference between a poor and good player. A' subscriber wrote to the Gove Co.

BODY OF UfJKfJOiyfj FOUND SKELETON OF MAN FOUND FROM WHICH COYOTES HAD TORN THE FLESH CHATTANOOGA: The decayed re gains of an unknown man were found four miles south of here by a party of hunters. All flesh is gone from the bones and coyotes appear to have torn the skeleton to pieces. The skull gives evidence of having been struck by a heavy weapon and is partially crush ed. The victim wore a hunting suit, was about six feet high, and was prob- : ably 40 years old. A letter found near by in his coat may lead to his iden- ' tity.
