The, temperature of Kansas proved to be just as hot as Arkansas and Oklahoma, and the wind never ceased to blow. .Our in-laws have a lake on their farm and when it got low they removed the fish to a reservoir. ' It was easy for the b. h. to get' a mess of fish out of this. We took a trip down into the Panhandle of Texas to see a nephew and family and we believe Texas is the hottest state in the Union. This nephew was right at the front, in the World War and tells some interesting stories. We saw the most wheat in a pile at his home that we ever expect to see in our life. It brings no price on the market. On our way there we visited a Kansas Cardiac Veneral trouble 2 disease e attempt to give here.

Section 5313: "A person coming from another state and not having be^ come a citizen of nor having a settlement in a state applying for re- let may be sent to the state when he came at the expense of the county under an order of the dictrict court or judge." Just the other day a family claimed settlement in Kossuth county. It was found that they had lived in this county for six months. Some well meaning individuals had informed this man .that he had claims on Kossuth county. It was learned that he really belonged in a neighboring county. Non residence notice was promptly served on him. We trust that the general public will understand this matter a little better,and not misinform poor persons. There seems to be some confusion about the question of voting The -non residence notice has no thing to do whatever with voting a"na spent the afternoon piecing quilt blocks and visiting. Fourth WeddlnTiate Observed- or in other words Dutch Cleanser, and Colgate's products are also made from this. The b.

Kansas is also the home of the soap weed Which sells for $1.00 per in'Iowa and is called Tucca. We brought home a quantity of seed. We took hold of a cactus and ihave been pulling out thorns ever since. The b. h. insisted that we go to see a prairie dog town. It was rather interesting to watch these little animals. Kansas is the state where the jack rabbits grow, we fished once more before we left Kansas on a nephew's farm. Blue, gills and bullheads were caught in abundance but we were forced to throw many back which we hope to catch again in the future.

We lost our trail in Omaha and found ourselves fifteen blocks out of the way, We were glad when we crossed the river into Council Bluffs. Being then on familiar ground, we finished, the trip by 3:00 p. m.
