On next Monday and Tuesday, the Kansas PhotoRraphers Art -Club, composed of men who know . all ^ about making pictures will hold the annual session of the organiz.-ition In the Gibson studio on north Washington avenue. It is up to lola to smile and look pleasant next Monday and. Tuesday for the photographers are going to take away many impressions and views of lola and her people and they'll talk about them. lola wants^is talk to_ be complimentary and she'll do her best to make the visitors feel welcome. The roster of membership of the Kansas-Photographers'Art Club is as follows: Art Gibson^ lola: Max Wolf. Manhat tan; W. R. Murphy. Newton; T. Livingston. Wichita: H. W. Rudolph, Atchison; A. Miller. Arkansas City;\ J: P. Colville, Topeka: Hugh Scott, Independence; E. J. W^olfe. Salina: L. G. Ah'ord, Emporia and B." G. Gronkal, Lindsborg. The membership of the club is limited to twelve and only artists of speHal standing are eligible to membership. Vacancies occur only by resignation or death of a member and applicants for membership are placed on the waiting lists and a membership awarded as the'vacancy occurs. The club makes It a special object to pursue the' art of photography In the light of the very latest'developments ini the business. . Color photo.graphy is' juftt now ijttracting. considerable attention and Is receiving much study on iJtc iwrt of the State Art Clnh. The sessions of the club will be held in the Gibson Studfo In oi'der that all work under discussion may be promptly and properly demonstrated. The Gibson shop is one of the best and most elaborately equipped In the state and will prove equal to the tests that will be made upon it during the state mcjeting.

GOULIN THE CEMENT PUUITS IMTED KANSAS TODAY FLANNINO ym LEHUNT MILI- Pros |>e4 >t of Similar Installation at Concroto Depends'on Bnitlness ActlTlty. 1 properly said that the State Art club 4.-.... meetingfi are eagerly sought by most cities in th(^ state of Kansas. Photographer!; are observant fellows who remembtsr what they see and can tell nil about It afterward. If the impressions arp good, it means that an ever faithful friend has been found; if the Impressions are not good, the visitor returns home with little to say about lola. Secretary Gibson, upon wjiom the making of arrangements for this meet ing falls, is entitled to the warm and hearty co-operation of all public spirited citlaens in welcoming th»» visitors even tliough there be but a small number. The directors of the United Kansas Portland Cement company held a meeting here today, the chief business of which was to take steps to install coal burning equipment at the Le- Hunt plant of the ^company. The mill, th&re has been operating steadily, part capacity, and with the improvement in the cement market and the Increasing cost ot jgas and scarcity, of that prbduct, the change to coal is necessary. There has been considerable talk here, inspired', largely through fond wishes, that a similar installation may be made at the concreto mill, but it w^as stated today that this Is a remote possibllj/y. It is being considered, but the company will probably try out the proposition at the LeHunt plant first and if conditions later seem to recommend a change at the local mill, the matter will be taken up. The fact that the kilns at' Con­ creto are 60-foot ones,. whereas the 12.5-foot kiln Is supc-'or for the new system, cuts conslde: ible figure In the problem. The transformation of the gas burning cement plants, some ten or more in number, td coal Is one of the bl^ and expensive chapters In the cement industry in this field... It is reported that the Dewey Portland located in Oklahoma and supposedly In the "heart of the present gas belt," today let a contract for a coal burning equipment. These manufacturers, controlling their own gas supply, know perfectly the status of the natural gas field, and when the Dewey Portland gives up. It Is Idle to argue longer that the passing of the gas may soon be written, "The gas. has passed." SAYS 6AS METERS tfON'T LIE FROK. WALKFB OF K 1 V. GIVES OFT .IMAGING DOPE. rniCKEN THIEVES ABE BFSY.

Reports to the police department show that it is necessary for chlcljen fanciej*?; to take every precaution to protect their birds. In the past few nights a number of chickens have Been stolen and It Is. of course, a difficult matter for the police to secure any clew Jo the thieves or the thief as the ea -oc may be. Usually, the chicken thief takes every care not .to leave any evidence that would lead to his Identification and the guess that stolen chickens will Immediately be sold to some local dealer is usually wrong, for the thief has become too carefbl in that partic: ular. The only adrice that can be offered iiy the officers is that chicken oa-ners lock their co (j>p8 wherever possible. y. H. C. A. NEWS.

Tin APrrirS gas they p.iy for under low pressure and are abl? to utilize it 95 per cent as effectively as when the pressures arc high. The trouble Is that they <?annot get all; the gas they need. If pressures were maintained, more gas would be used and bills would be high er than with low pressure under pres ent winter conditions, btit if the consumer got all he needed he would be content to pay the larger bill. "Of course meters have indtridtial idosyncrasies and should be aiUusted with careful consideration of .the average flow. Foiir standard meters vere tested at an Idei ^l- rate of 80 cubic feet per hour and the error in measurement was found to be approx imately one per cent in advance of the correct measurement which would ocr respond to a like per cent of overcharge on the gas VOX. But In general the doubts about tlf6 accuracy of the meters are unfounded." 1 THE CONCEBT AT TRINITr.
