The Gab* That Wat Rural.
There was a little cook, and aha made
a little cake,
Bbe put It In the oven Juit to bake,
It waa full of plume and aplce,
And of everything that's nice,
And ahe said, "An hour, I reckon, It
will take, take, take."
And then that little cook went to have
a little play.
With a very charming cat acroaa the
way, way, way;
She forgot the cake, alack!
It was burnt, well, almost black.
And I wonder what the cook's mamma
would say, say, say!
The little cook ran off, and confessed
her talo of woe,
For to find her cake a cinder was a
blow, blow, blow;
"Cheer up,” the mother said,
As she stroked the golden head,
'Tor accidents will happen, we all
know, know, know."

Fnirj, the Woodchuck.
Dorothy lived with her grandpar-
ents on a little farm among the moun-
tains. Se loved animals, and was
never without a pet of some kind. One
day as Dorothy's grandfather was
taking the cow to pasture, he noticed
three little creatures playing near a
large rock. He thought they were
young foxes, and he started to catch
one; but before he could reach the
place, two of the little fellows had
tumbled Into their hole. The other was
about half way in when Dorothy's
grandfather grabbed him. It was not
a fox, but a baby woodchuck—a queer,
fuzzy, little ball of fur, with beady
black eyes, stumpy tall, and big yel-
low teeth. The baby woodchuck bit
and scratched and struggled to get
away. But at last be was tied In a
y handkerchief, and then he was carried
to Dorothy. Dorothy was delighted
with this new strange pet; and though
her grandfather said woodchucks rare-
ly became tame, she was sure this one
would. She named him "Fuzzy," and
then took down her old squirrel cage,
and lined It with soft hay and placed
him In It, with some fresh-cut clover
and a little dish of water. For a few
days Fuzzy was very wild. He be-
haved very badly. He insisted on
spilling his water, and be would snap
and bite whenever bis little mistress
replaced It. But by-and-by he saw
that Dorothy did not mean to hurt
him. Then he gave up biting. In two
weeks be would drink from his dish
,*• without upsetting it, and would nibble
clover from Dorothy’s hand, and let
her scratch his funny little head. In
a month Fuzzy had grown to twice his
size, and had become so tame that he
would let Dorothy take him In her
arms and carry him about. One day
little Dorothy forgot to fasten the
cage door and Fuzzy walked out. But
be did not go far, and went back to
his cage of his own accord. The door
was never fastened again, and all day
long Fuzzy would play about the ver-
anda or nibble grass in front of the
house, but he always returned to bit
wire house for the night.
One day Dorothy's grandmother was
baking cookies, ,and she gave one to
Frizzy. It was funny to see the little
woodchuck taste it then taste again,
as If he were not quite able to make
up his mind whether he liked it or not.
Finally he decided that he did like
It and he ate It all. From this time,
cookies were his favorite food. As
soon as Dorothy's grandmother began
to bake he would run to the kitchen,
and sit on his haunches in the door-
way, and wait patiently until his
cooky was given him; then he would
scamper off to one of his grassy nooks
and eat it at his leisure. Several times
during the summer Fuzzy wandered
off to the woods and spent the day.
At last one cool October day Fuzzy
went off and did not return. Dorothy
was afraid some one had killed him.
All winter long she mourned for
Fuzzy. One fine morning In April as
Dorothy was walking down the road
with her grandfather they espied a big
red woodchuck sitting on a stump in
a field. "Oh, grandpa!” cried Doro-
thy, “see that woodchuck, doesn’t he
look Just like my dear old Fuzzy?”
"Perhaps it is Fuzzy.” said her grand-
father. “Call him and see.” Stepping
to the side of the road, Dorothy waved
her hands and called, “Fuzzy! Fuzzy!
come here, Fuzzy!" And what do
V you think happened? Why, the big
► red woodchuck first looked at Doro-
thy for a minute, with hit head on one
side, and then came running across
the field—and It was her dear old
Fussy, coming back to her after his
long winter sleep.
Dorothy took the great red fellow
In htr arms and hugged and kissed

up for all the time he had been away.
That afternoon Dorothy's grandma got
out her baking tins and rolling pin.
And the moment Fuzzy heard the
sound, he started up and ran to the
kitchen door, and took his place
again, to wait for his cooky. During
bis long winter sleep he had not for-
gotten about the cookies. One day
Dorothy's grandpa found that hia
vegetables had been nibbled off, and
aa Fuzzy had never been known to
go Into the garden he thought aoma
wild woodchuck had made his home
clone by to be near Fuzzy. That night
he set a trap. The next day when he
visited the trap, there, caught fast by
one leg, was Dorothy's Fuzzy! Poor
Fuzzy's lex was broken. He moaned
and groaned while It was being ban-
daged. He was put to bed. and Dor-
othy smoothed him and petted him.

Teddy was out In the back yard,
digging a well with an old Iron spoon.
He had on his grandpa’s straw bat,
which, of course, kept falling down
over his eyes.
"Teddy,” called grandma, "It l» too
hot for.you to stay out any longer;
you must come lu now."
It waa time for Teddy's nap, but she
didn’t say so.
"I ain’t Teddy," said the little boy;
“I’se grandpa, and I'se diggin’ a well.
My bossy-cow Is all ‘tarvln’ to deaf
for water, bo I'se got to dig It.”
“But grandpa comes In to rest when
the sun is very hot, you know,” said
grandma. “'You may go out to work

Grandma bathed the hot little face,
and took off Ills dress and his shoes
and stockings, so that his neck and
his arms, and his little pink feet
might cool off.
"Grandpa lies on the lounge to rest,
you know, Teddy,” said grandma.
"But I don't want to take a nap!"
“Nor does grandpa; you see, he just
lies down and reads the paper, and
If he gets sleepy he goes to sleep;
that's the way he does.”
"All wight!” said Teddy, seizing a
newspaper and climbing on the
lounge. “But l want some grasses,
grandma, 1 can't see to read wivout

Grandma found some eyeglass bows

held them astride his nose with one

“And there's a war." continued the
little reader, "and the men wlv guns

Topeka, July 18.—The fire depart-
ments In Topeka, Atchison, Emporia,
Lawrence Wichita and other of the
larger cities have addressed appeals
to the people, asking them to shut off
all their hydrants whenever the fire
whistle is blown. There is not a city
In the state which is uble to cope
with a tiro with usual vigor. Buildings
have reached such an intense degree
of dryness that a tire will start on the
slightest provocation, and, once start-
ed, in some parts of the cities, enorm-
ous losses would be sure to ensue.
Reports from the country district#
tell that all the streams aro getting
low. Mills and electric light plants
that were run by water power were
forced to close. Most of the ponds
have been dry for two weeks, and the
question of where to obtain water for
stock is one of the most important
propositions that has confronted the
Kansas farmer for years.
As a result, stock is being placed on
sale at ridiculously low prices.
Reports from twenty-four Kansas
counties, mostly in the eastern and
central parts of the state, indicat
that the corn crop is not so bad off aa
has hitherto been published. The
late product has not yet begun to
tassel, and it is the general verdict
that it is standing the heat remarka-
bly well. In some places the corn is
worse off than in others, hut taking it
in average of all the conditions
reported, it can be safely said that if
favorable weather conditions would
come at once, a half crop of corn
would be obtained. But the condi-
tions now are anything but propitious
for better weather.
The livestock situation is very bad.
Dairymen have been obliged to double
the price of milk, so high have the
prices of feed become.
N«v SlirapDcl Shell.
The new England shrapnel shell Is
formed out of white-hot solid steel ana
then drawn through successive narrow
rings to toughen the metal and to ren-
der it more elastic. Each shell Is
filled with 300 bullets, each weighing
about a third of an ounce. The fuses
are regulated by hand, without any
mechanical assistance, the burning pe-
riod being twenty seconds, sufficient to
make them effective at a range of about
6,000 yards. It Is claimed that the
maximum rapidity of fire with shrap-
nel would concentrate a ceaseless
stream of 5,000 bullets a minute upon
any desired area.
a riif i>»r Echo.
Flag Day was observed in most of
the public schools of New Y'ork re-
cently, and the members of the Grand
Army of the Republic In most cases
were the speakers at these public exer-
cises. For 125 years “Old Glory" has
been our national ensign, and to its or-
iginal design of thirteen stars have
been added thirty-two. and to its glory
and grandeur today no human eulogy

Hunting with the Camera.
The new sport, begun by natural-
ists, of hunting all manner of wild
creatures with the camera, spying
upon them in the supposed privacy of
their retreats, studying their habits,
domestia customs and individual
traits, offers a pursuit Infinitely more
significant, more elevating and of
greater value to humanity than tha
sport whose vista Is bounded by the
lights of a gun-barrel, it certainly
calls for a higher courage, and Inso-
much is a more manly occupation.
Tracking big game to its lair, circum-
venting it at short range in order
to get it in a good light, waiting for it
to strike an effective pose, then calm

tered by cumbrous weapon and am-
munition, Is a braver deed than touch-
ing a trigger at rifle range. It cer-
tainly demands superior skill and
yields superior results. When the ob-

6eetiou agreed upon is one providing
for county assessors to be elected
every four years.
Dry Weather Stock.
Kansas City, Mo., July 10.—The pro-

ship upon the farmers and stock
raisers of the western states.
The ranges are drying up and the
pastures are withering. The Kansas
City stock yards are being overrun
daily now with what is called "dry
weather stock.” Farmers and stock j
raisers have begun to run their pro- !
duct to the market, regardless of price !
and the condition of the stock.

FEATURES OF NEW TAX BILL.
Latest Proposed Pesters Is Taiatloa of
Topeka,.Kan., July 15.—The state
tax revision commission adjourned to
meet again July 30, After a short
meeting at that time the commission-
ers will adjourn to meet again in Sep-
tember, when the final draft will be
made of the bill when it will be pre-
sented to the legislature of 1003 for
enactment into law. The new law
is expected to thoroughly revise the
tax system of the state.
A new feature of the bill bos been
evolved. It was the addition of a chap-
ter providing for the taxation of in-
heritances. The chapter provides for
the imposition of a tax at 5 per cent on
the inheritances left to collateral heirs
and legatees The tax constitutes a
lien on the estate and must be paid
to the county treasurer in the county
in which the the heirs reside. The
county trensuaer is required to pny the
tax into the general fund of the state
treasury. Direct heirs are exempt
from the provisions of the chapter
