Although no official announcement
has been received at this office the
daily papers are publishing tile com
munication from Washington that the
Treasury department has made its
selection for our new postoffice and
that the John Oswald corner has
been chosen. This will be good
news to onr citizens as this site
seemed to be t lie most popular of
those available now for the new build
When the telegrams came yester
day from the Treasury department
accepting the offer for the Oswalf
corner it was announced he Heim
property adjoining it to the south
was not for sale and this was wired
the department. The answer came
back to condemn it but in the mean
time the terms were accepted and
the deal goes straight through.
Tonight the pastor of the church

SHORT SERMONS ON GOOD
No fanning section which lias
once had good roads would ever
go back to bad roads.
High freight rates are not
nearly as heavy a tax on the
shippers of stock and other farm
produce as bad roads are.
Only a very rich county could
afford thi> tremendous financial
drain of bad roads.
A good road is to a country
district what a paved street is
to the city property that ad
joins it. It makes business for
A farmer In ing on a good road
is n free man. lie is not de
pendent on weather conditions.
He is aide to sett his stock and
grain and fruit at the best mar
ket prices. The railroads have
to serve the man who can get
his stuff to a shipping point any
day in the year.
Money spent for good roads is
as good nu investment for im
proving the farm as is money
put into stock sheds, grain cribs,
fences, seeds or anything else
that makes the farm pay.

KANSAS MOUSE PASSES SUF
FRAGE BILL, 94 TO 28.
If Senate Ratifies The Measure the
People May Vote On It.
The house of Representatives, with
»ery little discussion, voted to sub

stitutional amendment providing com
plete suffrage rights for women. It is
now up to the Senators of Kansas
to say whether or not the women of

Mr. Washburn of Columbus has tak
en charge of the Grand, which he
purchased last week from Mr. Stan

having fine patronage.
FRUITS AS FOOD.
Some food analyses which have been
made by Ihe California, North Dakota
and some other experiment stations
show quite clearly that apples and
other fruits have a food value that
should commend them for use in the
average family entirely apart from
the fact of their line flavor and the
relish with which they are eaten bj
the average person. These experi
ments show that fruits are fairly cheap
sources of energy and arc to be com
mended fm the ground of economy fur
combination in proper quantities with
cheap proleld foods to furnish a bal
anced ration. It has been found that
10 cents' worth of fresh apples used
as food furnish 1,4(57 units of energy
to the body, 10 cents’ worth of porter
house steak furnishes 444 units, while
10 cents’ worth of dried beans fur
nish 892 units or calories. From
this it will he seen that apples as well
as other fruits are to be favored be
cause of their food values, entirely
apart front the fact that they are pret
ty to look at, fine flavored and have a
wholesome effi et on the digestive proc
