There Is a probability of part of tho prison farm being set aside for the 'cultivation of tho fra grant weed.

This he claims that he paid and says that he has not been given the position, that the proposed factory has not been built and that his efforts to get the $500 back are unavailing. Mr. Garten in his petition states that in Juno, 1913, he was approached by W. C.

Nash, who represented himself as an agent for the company, stating that C. J. Dowling, secretary, and general manager, had sent him. Ho asked Mr. Garten, it is alleged, concerning taking the job of foreman of the assembling department of the factory at $125 per month In consideration of tho plaintiff purchasing five shares of stock.

Sullivan of Solomon, a director, told him that there were 100 orders in, says Garten Again on Juno 13 Nash approached Garten, tho petition alleges, and he decided to take the job. Mr. Garten says he received the menioran' dum of contract and turned over a check for $500. The means used were false and fraudulent and were used only to get him to purchase worthless stock, Garten says. He also says that no stock was ever Issued to him for his money.

The plow company is the one which made an effort to locate in Salina last summer.
