'The foUowine; ardcle about the new state fis-Ji hatchiTj- at Pratt will be found of Interuet to many ipeoplu. for tli6 Institution is onu that belongs to the Kansas people: The |ion<l system of the new and improved Viah Hatchery at Pratt, Kansas, will be completed on or before the first of November. 1912. October 2!»th haj5 been designated by Governor Stubbs as the day for the deiiicatlon of. the new hiatchery. Appropriate exercises will he held at thatJlmc on the hateSiery grounds at the west end of the |>ond system at the place where the big 21-inch pipe will deliver million gallons of water diiily into pond 1. the receiving pond. From this l>ond se\-eral streams of water will flow east through all the ponds In I lie system. The water will be turned on for the first time at 10 a. m. Tuesday. October 29th. by (lovornor \V. R. Stubbs. Those who are present will see the water flow Into the largest )iond fis'h hatchery that has ever been ' built. It Is hoped that mairj' citizens . of Kansas will make it a point to be; there at the opening exercise.". The j governor, the state architect,' the re-| gents of the State I'nlvorsity and other j state officials will be there, and an , earnest invitation is extended to all 1h^ cltiz«'ns of the state. It has been said tliat the building of. this hatchery is ati fpoeh in the his- I lory of fish hatcheries. Not only ts i this tlie largest fish liatchcry. so far as we ktio*. that has' ever lieen built, but in many resptn-ts it is the • most complete and best eciuipped. The water system, cont rolled by over KM) solid concrete structures with bronze and iron gates securely fitted, is the most complete arrangement for handling water that has yet been constructed for a fish hatchery. Tlie water itself i.s ideul for fish culture i)urposes. The supply is taken from the South ^Vin- nescah river just soutli of the <^ty of Pratt. A solid cement dam Tiflu feet long holds a su|>i)ly laki'. of about seven acres. .V cement chamber receives th<' water through Jioavy wire screens from tlie supply lake and pass e.< it thrnuirh a gateway into tlie 21- iufli conuuil pipe. While the water is! clear. from innumerable i springs a few miles west of Pratt, yet it runs several miles through beds of water cress, moss and • other water plants bi'fore It reaches the supply lake. Hence the w^ter is well supplied with minute animal and i)lant life and other fish food, and is well aerated before It is jioured into the* breeding ponds. tHtjert of Hatchery. The chief object of the state fish hatchery is to supj)ly brood stock fish for the i)onds. lakes and streams of Kansasi There is no better food than fish and with most people fresh fish is a real-luxury. Most fish lose flavor and quality very rapidly when re- luoved from the vater. It can be stated as a rule, that has very few exceptions, that the sooner a fish is cooked and eaten after it. has been taken from tlie water and killed, the better it is. 'H follows then, that the best way for Kansas people to get goo<l, fresh fish is to raise tJiem, and the nearer they are raised to the place of consumption the better tliey will be. Kansas lias many fish streams. They liave been abuseii by turning sewage into them. The fish interest of the whole people has been greatly injured by certain individuals who have taken fish by unfair moans and thus depleted the streams of breeding fish, it is believed that the above abuses can be corrected and that Kansas streams can be made to produce a good crop of fish each year an dyet sufficient breeding stock left to insure a next year's crop. It will be a good part of the business of the fish hatchery to help bring about such conditions. The hatchery will do everything in its power by disseminating knowledge of and all things pertaining to fish and the fish culture business to help each individual who . is in any way interested in the fish business. Fish can be raised in pond!>.—small ponds fniai a iiuarier of-an acre in Size up to any size. However, ssome knowledge is necessary to .nilse fish. Tills knowledge the hatchery hopes to be able to supjdy. mostly through Its publications, an despecially tiirough Its bulletins that will be published from tiiiie. to time. The study of fish, their habits and the best methods of raising them will c<mstitute a very considerable part of the work to be earried on at the state fish hatchefv. On .September 22ud a contract was let for the construction of a fish batclj ery building. This building will cost about twenty thousand dollars $20,- 000.00). It will furnish office, library an(J aquarium laboratory room. Lab- oratorles-witU an aquarium lor carry-, ing on investigations and experimeots constitute an essential part of any f\S)\ hatchery. The fish of any loctil- ity must be carefully studied with reference to tbeconditiona'and environment of that loc'aUty. We mtist know about water conditions and food iiupplics and the relations of fish to these conditions and to each other, or it will not be possible to make intelligent progress in the fish culture business. , Hntriieo I'lace to Learn AlKtat FI H I U Those who desire to l^arn about fish and the beat methods of raising anti handling them should visit the state fish hatchery. With a hundred ponds In operation and every kind, size and age of fish in the ponds, an opportunity would be furnished for gaining a great deal of information in a short period of time. Studied and looked at from their foo<l habits, fish can be divided in a general way into two groups,—vegetable feeders and animal feeders . All young fish eat nearly the same kind of food, minute forms of animal and plant life. As the.v grow older and larger such fish as the carp, buffalo, the red horse, in fact ail the suakers, are essentially vegetable feeders. Such fish as the basses, cat-fishes, •the'crap pies and the sunfishes are essentially animal feeders. However, the eat- fishcs. even when grown, eat-more or less vegetable matter, and the crap- piei; and siinfishes eat a little vegetable matter, especially when they are young. However, the great bulk of the food of the bass, the catfish, the crappie and the sunflsh Js animal. These fish feed very largely upon other fish, especially upon minnows and tiie young of the cari>, buffalo, and in fact the young of all the vegetable featr ing fish. It is much easier to raise the vegetable eating fishes. There is usually idenly of.foad in streams and ponds for vegetable eating fishes, but llie supply of animal food is never so alKindant. To meet this demand nature has so arranged that most vegetable eating, fishes spawn eggs by the million, wliile aoRual eating fishes sjiakn eggs by the ibousand. For Instance, catfish and bass spawn from 1 to 20 thousand egffB each in a year, while carp and buffalo spawn from ."lOO.OOO to five million eggs each In a year. The vegetable eating fish eon- vert mucli waste vegetable matter Into fishflesh. This fishflesh In the form of young fish serves as food for the animal eating varieties. For Instance, the black bass will eat from three to fivttimes its own weight in other fish each year. The object of (he fish hatchery Is, then, to deal with every problem of fish culture that may present itself and, if possible, to cause fisit to become a common article of food In the homes of Kansas people, and thus furnish a cheap, wholesome and delicious article of food. We believe that the fish hatchery can in a few years be made to return to the people of the state fish food enough to more than pay for the cost of the entire plant each year. LEWIS I..1NDSAY T)YCHE.

Commencing tonight the policy of the t'nited Amusement Company at the Grand Theatre will be to change jtlajs every night, instead of every other night as heretofore. The companies will change every week Instead of every two weeks. This change is made on account of the heavy expense of the shows and the fact that not enough people attend to make .the business profitable. With the change in attraction every night it is hoped that business will Increase sulflclehtly to enable the Tabloid shows to keep uji. Tills new amusement Is pleasing more than anything that has been bf- fered in loia since the Alrdome Idea was first introduceil, and It would be a loss to the theatre going people to give Hj) Tabloid stock. The company this week is known as Company "C" and has such well known players as Julia I>»lghton and Chas. Emery in the cast, and is said to be one of the best companies oa the circuit. The play tonight Is "His LASt Round-Tip," a western comedy drama and Is one of the best plays that will be offered during the week.

Tnule and Money CondlHons Exrellent and (Jood Times .an* In .**lghl Save for Pollllcs. (Special Correspondence). New York, Oct. 19.—The stock market has exhibited exceptional resisting qualities. As in evidence the outbreak in the Balkans forced heavy European liquidation as the result' of over-speculation in some of the foreign bourses. This Induced large foreign selling of American stocks, estimated at- between 300,000 and 500,000 shares, for the evident reason that these were the best securities on which to realize. As to the Immediate future of the market not a little 'depends on political developments between now and election da.v. What is of almost as much importance a ^s who will be elected, will be the CongressionaKresults. The great enoition Is. will the prevailing political unrest in certain sections result in materially changing the present character of Congress? The country has had more than enough of unreasoning attacks upon capital and corporations which are not the only pvil doers in the country and have In the past few years received more than their share of criticism and persecution. For this reason the Congressional returns should be closely watched after election day as an indication of politlc'al tendencies during the next two years. What the country may reasonably hoiie for Is a more rational and !eroi)erate treatment of our political ills: a consummation devoutly desired. Monetary conditions continue an Im portnnt condition in the stock market. The West appears to have made more than ample preparation for the present crop movement, the inability of thr raProade to handle the grain crops having reduced the demands for mon- I py to smaller proportions than ex- j pected. Southern demands upon Xew York have not.thus far been excessive. It Is again to be notrd that each year thr Interior becomes more and more able to finance its own seasonable requirements. Nevertheless an active demand for money is assured for some time to come. Crop demands must of necessity exceed all precedent, and an inevitable trade expansion wil! also impose a heavier burden upon the monetary supply. It is somewhat fortunate that gold imports have been arrested, by the foreign situation. We have been obliged to take hack 125,000,000 to 130,000.000 securities in place of gold. In all probability, however, the Influx of the precious metal is only temporarily de- la.ved. Now that the financial crisis in Europe is about over there will be less difficulty in oiir purchasing of gold. Our foreign trade balance is running largely in our favor. Our ex ports of cottoQ and grain promise to be heavy and we are still shipping unusual quantities of manufactured articles; the activity of trade in foreign countries stimulating the demand for American manufactures, in spite of l.igh prices. Moreover, Europe will probably buy back a portion of the ; stocks recently sold, now that the; Ualkan outbreak is likely to be re- '• strictcd by the great i'owers, and also f Ce SMITH & BKOS.

American prosperity is based upon a rock. We have the linest harvest on record. No class in the country today is enjoying such general prosperity as the farmers. In nearly all sections of the country and for nearly every agricultural iiroduct larg.^ yields and ii!gh prices prevail.
