I ■ • i$S.' SHM> IE past few years has witnessed the do-j velopment of a unique activity, the pur-j pose of which is to satisfy public curios- ity regarding inen and women who are prominent In one or another of the con- spicuous, walks of life. This particularly up-to-date vocation might be denominat- ed "snap-shotting" of celebrities, which means the making of instantaneous photographs of the people who are temporarily or permanently In the public eye and whose personal appearance is conse- quently a matter of Interest to the people of all parts of the country. Few newspaper readers who take dellgnt in the mass of pictures spread nowadays over every print- ted page, ever stop to reflect what a comparatively short tlmeSigo it was that first saw such embellish- taent of the'rbronicle of the day's happenings. Most bf our readers can doubtless remember distinctly the time when pictures were unknown in their favor- ite newspaper, and even after crude cuts began to make their appearan...

In this county, the office of district attorney is combined with that of county attorney and as tho remuneration of that of- ficial is about as attractive as that of district attorney, it is not reasonable to assume that we would get any abler lawyers for the job than we now get as county attorney.

New York.—Two creatures entirely flew to the eyes of the New York public are the fine pair of secretary birds, male and female, Just acquire*] by Director W. T. Hornaday for the Zoological Garden. These stately, long-legged bipeds, with ashy gray plumage and tall feathers two feet long, are the champion snake killers of the world. The secretary is really a hawk, adapted especially for ground hunting. The male stands four feet high, the greater part of this being made up of legs and neck. The bird gets its odd name from a crest of long, dark plumes rising from the back of the head, which gives him a fanciful resemblance to a clerk hav- ing a bunch of quill pens stuck behind his ears. The naked skin of the face is yellow. The fine gray eyes have heavy long lashes. In South Africa the birds are said ...

The first cement silo In Lyon coun- ty—the seventh or eighth to be buflt In Kansas—is on the farm of George Randolph, two miles south of Emporia. The silo and the value of ensilage for •tock during the winter months is ap- preciated by every farmer who is pro- pressive in his agriculture. Perhaps every farm in the state has a silo of home construction, built of boards and covered with earth. But the ce- ment silo is to the one of boards as the wheat binder is to the cradle and scythe. And, thanks largely to the extension department of the Agricul- tural College at Manhattan, the farm- ers are beginning to realize the im- portance of green fodder the year round for their milch cows and stock. For that is one of the wonders of the cement silo. The structure of Mr. Randolph's was built thiB summer...
