The eighth annual convention of the

city last Wednesday, Thursday and
Friday was perhaps the largest gather

present from all parti of the county.
The program was a very interesting
and instructive one and was well pre
entcd, each participant endeavoring
to create a new interest in the work be

program, conducted by O. h. Cotting,

We have read of .Maud on n summer
day, who raked, barefooted, tho now
mown hay; wo havo rend of tho maid
in the early morn, who milked the cow
with tho crumpled horn; nnd we've
read the lays that tho poets sing, of the
rustling corn nnd the llowoisof spring;
but of nil the lays ot tor.gue or pen,
there's naught like tho lay of a Kan
sas hen. Long, long before Maud
rakes her hay, the Kansas hen has be
gun to lay, and ero tho milkmaid stirs
a pi', the lieu is up uud lias dropped
her egg; 1 lie corn must rustle and
lowers spring 11 they hold tliolr own
with tho barnyard ring. If Maud Is
needing n hat and gown, she doesn't
hustle her liny to town; she goes to the
store nnd ootains iter suit with u basket
full of her fresh hen fruit; if tho milk
maid's beau make a Sunday call, she
doesn't feed him 011 milk nt all, but
works up eggs in a custard plo nnd
stuff him full of chicken fry; nnd
when the old man wants n horn, does
hetnko the druggist a loud of corn?
Not much! He simply robs a nest and
to town ho goes you know the rest.
Ho lingers there and he talks, per
chance, of truo reform nnd correct feo
nance, while his poor wlfo stays at
home and scowls, but is saved from
want by those self-same fowls; for,
while her husband lingers there, she
wtiicnes me cauKiing uen with care
and gathers eggs, and the eggs she'll
hide 'till she saves enough to stem the
tide. Then bail, all hail, to the Kan

7,000 cattle on the market that day but
Mr. Carnnhan's cattle brought the

When the train stopped nt Orleans
the other day n pretty nnd modest ap
pearing young country girl stopped oft
nnd walked across the plntform. At
the further end of it were a couple
hackmen who had their hands stretched
out to tako her baggngo nnd solicit her
patronage. Tho girl shook hands cor
dially with each of them. Sho thought
they were students from tho college
