A Ride And Some Crop.
Through courtesy of Slaughter k
Son the writer held down a cushion
in then car out to Joel Davis’ farm
some five miles west on the state
line, where he was having a sale.
Along the road we noticed some
corn up and quite a considerable
land not planted where it was flat
as the ground was too wet in places
for a lister to get through. Oats
were growing fine and most of the
fields covered the ground. Wheat
every where was booming, there
was no Hessian fly reported last
fall in that vicinity. The wheat on
W. O. Steward’s was about knee
high and some north of the Davis
section, was still taller. We have
never at this time of year, through
a residence of 42 years seen a bet-
ter prospect for a crop. Some of Mr.
Steward’s wheat last year made 36
bushels per acre, and if the season
keeps on as favorable as to this
date that record will be broken in
nearly all the fields as far as the
eye could reach. We came to the
conclusion that farmers should be
getting busy right now in engaging
their harvest help as it is going to
take many hundreds of out side
laborers to harvest and thresh this
great- crop that we are almost as-
sured of, and will surely get barring
hail storms or too wet weather
causing rust about the time the
wheat is ripening. Prices at the
sale seemed good to us, a span of
brood mares with mare mule colts
by their sides, brought nearly $500,
cows with young calves brought 70
to 82 dollars, the farm implements
mostly sold well. The day was one
of the hottest of the season and a
man felt more like hunting a shade
and a fan than standing out in the
hot sun and watching the auction-
eer’s collar melt down. The pro-
ceeds amounted to something over
$3,200. Mr. Davis has rented his
big farm to George Starks and the
Davis family will remove to Empor-
ia, Kansas, where they own anoth-
er farm. Harper county has many
good and prosperous farmers, but
it is a loss to the county when a
family like the one above mention-
ed moves away.
POOR BILLY SUNDAY.
Poor Billy Sunday is having his
own troubles. It seems that there
are people, who even though they
may believe that ‘‘the laborer is
worthy of his hire,” think that he
ought to tell his employers what he
does with the money they give him.
It is estimated that the evangelist
makes about $200,000 a year and
yet this immense sum does not
bring peace and serenity to the
plain-speaking preacher. Somebody
is always asking, not “where did
you get it?” But “what are you
doing with it? Sunday has hardly
left Philadelphia before another
former associate demands an ac-
counting. The dissatisfied party
this time is Francis Porter, a former
press agent for Sunday, who sends
to the newspapers a statement in
which he demands an accounting of
the $60,000 contributed by the
Philadelphians to the support of
the evangelist’s campaign there.
Porter declares there is a shortage
of more than $20,000, and says:
“The real truth of the situation is
that you (Sunday) are commercial-
izing the name of Jesus Christ,
boldly using his sacred name to ad-
vertise a money making business.”
“A decided disposition,” h i s
statement continues, “has been
shown (by the campaign commit-
tee) to avoid supplying the con-
tributors to this fund detailed in-
formation regarding its disburse-

The Spring High School class will

Venice Up to Date.” at the opera
house, Tuesday evening, May 4. This

presented it at the High school, that

George Walker's brother was over
from west of Wakita Sunday. He
says he is making good money milk-
ing ten cows and selling the milk to
the Gibbon cheese factory. In fact
his check for the milk from these cows
averages better than $85 per month

is not large and the returns are invit-

Do you live in a rural commun-
ity? Is it several miles to the
nearest railroad point? And are
the roads to the market impassable
a part of the year?
The chances are your community
will never get a railroad, and the
distance to the nearest railroad
town may never be shortened. But
you and your neighbors can, by
working together, to all intents and
purposes put yourselves on the
railroad and still live where you
Build a good road to your rail-
road town—one that can be used
365 days in the year. The people
of the railroad town will help you.
Organize a company to operate a
motor truck for freight and an
automobile for passenger service
between your community and the
railroad town. Such a line will
cost little to install and little to op-
erate, compared with the cost of
building and operating a very ord-
inary branch line or interurban
A community-built road to mar-
ket would not be limited to freight
and passenger hauling for pay. Ev-
ery man. woman or'child in the
community could use it every day
in the year, in their own automo-
bile, wagon or buggy, or their own
horse, or on foot.
