e MERGESMALt Superintendent Fslrchlld a 5ew Flan In jdate Beconunends Address. (Leiavenworth Times.) To ascertain -what Kansas can do to put the boy and giil of the farm oq a level with the child ren of the cities In the matter of eda »tional advantage is the purpose ot a tour of the state on which E. T. Falrchlld, state superintendent of pu>Iic instruction, .^l3 now enigaged. This mission brought him to Leavenworth yesterday when he addressed the teaciers of tlje city and county at a meetings at the high SPhooi. Wliile his suljeci was not en tireiy confined to the wcfrk now engrossing his attentloi, >lr. Kairchild lallced at some length on the "Consolidation of Schools," the pet scheme- lending toward the" object staled above. The superintendent gives some interesting facts and figures relative to the position of town ai d rural schools in the state in the lest school year. For instance there aru between 8.000 and y,000 rural school districts in the sfnXe .each with its sjparate schools and teacher or teachers. Of this large lUtmber more than oie-third represent an enrollment of ess thaji twcn- :y [lupils. Over one-hi.lf have an av- • rage dally attendance of less than iwenty pui )lls; yet ofjch of these Rc -tiools must employ its own teacher '-.Tusing an extravagance in the mat- I '^r of salaries that*alOne would be a lustlflcation for the jcry of rural .school reform which is just now beginning to awake in Kansas. The program as; outlined by the Ffate superintendent nieans the consolidation ot numfiers of these small rural school houses Into one ceutral- ly located building and the furnishing of means of transportation to child- <iren Inconvenleced by the remmal ot •he little one-liorse school building. This last is the great Ibkrrier to the <^ntire §cheme, but oth^r states have successfully met the jproblem and Kansas hopes shortly! to encounter And overcome it. The agitation has its origin iu the .educational fact that no teacher can do so well with a class of a dozen pupils or such a matter as with a ^ass reaching into numbers. The boy and girl of the farm have not the advantage of the scientific schooling given city children and; as Kansas is a state whose population is seventy per cent rural, there is occasion for concern. "You in the^eastern part of the state," says Mr. Falrchlld. "ma\' seem to deprecate this effortias interesting only to scatered western communi- lies, yet the conditions aie eijually prevalent in all imrts of the state." He cites I^avenworth county, one lit the most fortunate! in the slate, which possesses seventy-seven school which there y pupils. .\tch X.-ie. and so It state. Knowing irf Ifft liehlnd W^aiher Means Warmer in -..Ji districts in nineteen o are not more than twen Ison county is far wo noes through the entire wprso as the big cities going west. "Twenty-eight states" said Superintendent Fallchild to a reporter, "are working on this problem and nil have made more proKress than Kansas. South Carolina has closed a thousand of these small rural st^Kools: Indiana will shut down as maiiy this winter, and 1 want Kansas to! get into line. Everj-where 1 am meeting with close attention and even enthusiasm. The people_ generally seem to understand and appreciate the mbtive for my work. Now I am meriely 'talking it up" to prepare the state for changes contemplated in a bill to be. considered at the next session of the legislature.", ^ Concerning the transportation prob lem which would seem at first glance & bugbear and insurmountable barrier, Mr. Fairbanks explained that in some states large covered wagons were owned either by jthe states or counties. In winter they were provided with istoves. They are driven to the rural homes and the children gathered up each day. The expenses of teams and drivers is more than met by the savings in teachers' sal- .1 ries. ' >JL'J1ED WHILE AT PLAT. ClestMffit Brevier Narrowly Escapeil Loss of,8Ight. Ciessant Brelver. a pupil at the Washington building, came very near losing the sight o fone of his eyes while pla>1ug "shinny" yesterday. He was chasing after the block when one of the boys accidentally struck him with his club Just above the.eje. The blow was evidently a hard one and the physician who looekd after the in jury says that if the blobk had struck the boy just a trifle lower the eyesight would have been destrojied. A wouud about an Inch long and very deep was made. The boy Is, jhowever, able to be at school again today.

Put Toniorrow and njjxi Monday is the monthly pay dtiy i.xi all of the rall- rcnd offices In lolii .rThe report conies fiom Parsons to ttr effect that the Katy will pay all ^f their employees it! cash instead of oheclis as has been the custom. lx>cali Anent Peck said today that he had'not as yet been advised as to whether or not the lola otfico would receive- but he was sure that If the P.3iTRons men were p &ld III coin, the lo^a force would be treated likewise. The payroll of the Katy force in lola' will amount to about $1,500. The Missouri Pacific and Santa Fe agent.s have not be?n advised as to how tWi Tola men Wtare to be paid' but think tliat checks -R-ill be given out as before. The following ii; trom the Parsons Sun: ; The M. K. & T. «ompany will pay its employees In rsai money next Monday. The currency will be sent to Parsons and placKI m the banks here In sufficient amount to pay in full every check Iss -Jied by the company next pay day. ' This was the stat»iment made this morning by a high t^fflclal of the M. K. & T. railroad campany at this place. This means tljat on next Jron- day the railroad ooiiipany will have on deposit in Parsoiis In the neigh borohod of $150,000 and within a few hours afterward the circulating med lum ot the cltjr will be increased by that amount. The Katy employes havo been up In the^: atr as to what pUan the company pr<vposort to pursue in the matter of painnent, not that tlioy dotibfed the payment, but it is necessary that they have real money. The first rumor wan ^Tia? twv checks would be Issued nn usual and that these could be depORtted In the banks and thirty dollars, orften dollars every otlier day drawn <iut upon checks. Then there was a riimor that the company would go bjck to the old pay car plan, and fbr the first time the younger generation of railroad men on the Katy wou|ff tiave the opportunity of kwklng' through the little wicket In the moi|ey car as the paymaster hands forth their monthly allowance of coin. But upon the authority of a hlih that road can rest assured that next ed near lii^ li'=':Ad of tl'fe Frisco sys -Monday they will get tiieir cash from j tern may lou'.-y some information the old Reliahle Katy. Kver since «,n th.'

It i^ a mighty good thing at a time like this to he a Katy employe. Other roads are np against the same proi»ositIon which the Katy has solved Vio satisfactorily to its employes but few of them are meetin& it in the manner which the Katy has. I..ast Saturday was pay day In the construction department of the Frisco, and checks were used. \\'hether this system will be used next Friday by the Frisco in the payment of Its em­ ployes is a matter of doubt The following from Springfield, ^fo.. print- >VHE\ HEB BACK ACHES. A Woman Finds All Her Energf aud Ambition Slipping Away. lola women know how the aches and palus that come when the kidneys fail make life a burden. Backache, hip pains, headaches, dizzy spells, distressing urinary troubles, all tel of sick kidneys and warn you of the sjeallhy approach of dial>etes, dropsy and BrlBbt's disease. . Doan's Kidney Pills permanently cure all these disorders. Here's proof of it in an lola woman's words: .Mrs. Lucy Cleaver, of .'lO.*? South Cottonwood street. lola, Kos.. says: "In the spring of 19()1 when suffering with a lame and weak back i got Doan's Kidney Pills at C. B. Spencer & Co'ri drug store jand began using them. The trouble had been brought on. 1 think, by a strain I suffered while lifting a stove. Sharp pains caught mo in the rlpht hip and the aching Kradually extended around acfoss the small ot my back. 1 was laid up for two weeks and then when I began to get around the lameness and weakness still clung to! me. The nse of Doan's Kidney Pills completely rid me of these troubles and the severe pain in the hip and back has never reappeared. I have great coufldeace In Doan's Kidney Pills and am glad to give them my recommendation." for sale by all dealers. Price 50 cents. Foster-SIllburn Co.. Buffalo.

If such is the plan of t'ic Frisco in Springfield no intimnricn ha? been given the local officiaI.= ill this city." The followingi from Chicago, dated November 11, shows t^at there will be af ^U ;i .-t one pay car run this month: "Once more the picturesque .Mton pay car will travel ov^r the lines of that system, distribuflng wages and salaries to employes. It having been dfcided to pay In cash ir 'Stead of the checks fUs month." •WOMAN OF MYSTERY.'' Hemember the name—Doan's and . official ot the Katy, t^e employes-of uke no other. • n • 'A Woman of Mystery' is the at- tiaction at the Gn::'.d theatre tonight. The metix )iK )lltan cities of the United States get performnuces iu their theatres that the smaller cities can not siipi>ort on account of the enormous expense, such as great productions with jiKi peop'o on the stage, which possibly is the only reason that the production Is great. Richard Mansfield, when starring In "Cyrano De Bergerac" of "Henry V." could not afford to play the smaller cities but Inst season in "Beaiicalre" It was possible for him to do so becaiise he merely carried a limited number of fine artlsta in his huppoit; still this play was just as attractive in metropolitan cities as one of his great- number of-people pro<luctions. Other artists pay large cities that can of- fcrd to play smaller cities also, for in- 8(Bnc3, itanagers 'A'slters and ^V'ay, make it possible for .Miss Couiienay Morgan to play them because "A Woman of Mystery" can be played by a moderately small company. It Is hoped that the citizens of this commun- ii.j« will give credit to the local manager for bringing such attracttons to tje city thsreby encouraging more ar- tirts of thhi quality to come.
