In tlio European cities thero aio res

ously for yearH and nuver Increased
their caimcity for guests by a single
square foot. It is moro customary in
IPnris for a proprietor who finds huc
cess in ono place to open another in
nome other part of tho town.
Tlieio are, for instance, restnurants
in the Champs Klysecs which aro con
ducted by proprietors with places else
wheio in the city. Thus it Is possible
to keep Eonio intimacy of atmospheio
In them. Hut tho demands on the ie
sources of these places are so smalt
that they aro not to be compared In
any way with the New York restnu

samo problems to meet that faco the
Now York managers they aro those
of tho largo hotels In London.
Ono reason why Now York restau

It lies directly north of the Jocko

Of the $10,000 impropriated only $10,

Hayes City, Kan. "A lnrgo portion
ot tho population of Kills county Is
made up of Russians who have no
working knowledge of our hanking
system or disposition to learn any
thing about It," said a Hayes City
"They do their own banking. Their
strong box consists of n tin can or an
old boot nnd their safety deposit vault
Is a holo under tho barn or in the cel
lar. When they sell something they
demand tho cash and hldo It.
"It Is a conservative estimate to
say that mora than halt of tho actual
cash ot this county Is hidden," ho con
tinued. "Our deposits como chiefly
from tho Americans. Comparatively
few of tho Russians do any banking
business. We havo conducted a cam
paign among them for years, and
somo of tho younger element nro be
ginning to patronlzo us. Hut tho old
timers aro still holding off and prob
ably will conttnuo tc do so for the
rest of their lives."
Pet Imps 70 per cent, of the people
of Ellis county aro Russians. Moro
strictly speaking, they are German
Russians. Originally they went from
Germany to Russia, and later came
here. They aro a Bturdy, honest poo
pie, Industrious, very religious nnd
great monejvsavers. As debt payers
they are celebrated. They never lildo
behind tho statuto of limitation. If a
Russian buys a horse or a faun he Is
just as suro to pny for it as ho lives.
Mortgages aro only used as a protec
tion In enso of death.
Ninety per cont. of tho Russians
own their own farms, and they woik
them to tho very limit. Wheat Is tho
principal crop of this section nnd the
Russlnns arc the great wheat raisers
of tho bread belt. No sooner do they
reap ono crop thnn they go to plowing
for the next. It is a common thing
right now to see ono brunch or a fam
ily running a header and another the
plows In the same Held.
Everybody woiks, Including father.
Kvcn tho women and children take to
the fields during tho busy seabon. The
only rest n Russian gets Is on Sunday
mid lollglous holidays. No contingen
cy over arises to prevent a Russian
from lemcmbcrlng the Sabbath day
and keeping It holy. The samo Is true
of religious holidays, and tho Russians
havo many of them during tho busy
summer months.
It wns 32 years ago that the first
Russian colony settled In Kills county.
Slnco then they havo multiplied like
guinea pigs.
Syracuse Pastor Provides
Cribs and a Maid.
Syracuse, N. Y. Tho only church
nursery in the United Stutos was
opened hero for babies tho other Sun
day when the Centenary Molhodlst
Episcopal church, reconstructed dur
ing the summer, held its first service.
Thero was a maid in chnigo, blocks,
books of rhyme and a variety of toys
provided. Rov. E. L. Waldorf, tho
pastor, said:
"Crying babies will raise voices
without tho usual effect at a service.
The walls of the room will bp sound
proof. Lullabies will be sung nnd no
ono will be disturbed. Mothers may
leavo thu children In n cosy crib or
cuddled up on a couch with deep cor
ners and occupying rocKing cnuirs,
just outside tho double doors at the
rear of the balcony. So long ns tho
babies aro quiet they may stay with
their mothers."
When plans for tho reconstruction
of tho church woio bclr.fc considered
a suggestion for u nursery was made,
its adoption camo unanimously. Moth
ers and fathers liked tho andea and It
flguied in the mchltcct's instructions.
Parents with babies wero fearful that
their youngsters might annoy people,
and they did not bring them to chutch
and stayed homo themselves, said
Mr. Waldorf. Ho hopes by the now
Idea to have a larger congregation.
