White City Register. VOLUME XXIII WHITE CITY, KANSAS, THURSDAY, JANUARY 21, 1909. NUMBER 20 Mr. Dodderidges' Narrow Escape. W.

H. Dodderidge returnad homefrom Topeka last Thursday evening and went to bed at once. The ordeal of the night before in the Copeland hotelwhich was destroyed by fire, was too much for him. The smoke, heat and excitement nearly overcome him. But the next morning he was able to be up and around again.

His son, Kenneth, who was with him in the fire, stayed i in Topeka where he has a job in the legislature as page. He showed no ill effects of the experience. It was reported in some of the Daily papers that Mr. Dodderidge and son were lost in the fire and so as a result many letters have been received at the Dodderidge home by friends and rela- tives, making enquiries. The experience of Mr.

Dodderidge and, son was something awful and they count themselves fortunate to escape with their lives. In speaking of it Mr. Dodderidge says: "Our assignment was on the fourth flour. I didn't hear any fire alarm, but did hear a great commotion and on opening our door smoke and heat poured into our room. No time was lost in getting out of our room, leaving thing behind but our trousers.

But where to go or what to do we didn't know. Returning to our window and yelling for help to firemen below, we were told to go to the front fire escape. Turning we started for -well we did't know where. Didn't know how to get there everything was dark and we ran hither and thither only to be repulsed by a door or the intense heat. The smoke and heat had become almost unbearable by this time and I felt that all would be over soon if relief didn't come.

A guest in passing told us to follow him that he thought he could find the fire escape. We did so and after. bursting in a door we finally reached the fire escape and ran down. It was terrible." Kenneth showed rare presence of mind by wetting a towel just before leaving his room and used it over his mouth and nose. This is probably the reason he fared better than his father.

Running around in the snow barefooted, Mr. Dodderidge said, was not very pleasant. Attention Teachers. The county teachers association will meet in Council Grove Saturday, Jan. 21, in the afternoon.

D. Linde. Little Ivy and Violet Person preceded with a carpet of white, over which the bridal party passed to an alcove formed with an arch of white lattice work above, supported by two pillars of evergreen and white carnations with a drapery of white lace back ground. Three white wedding bells were suspended from the center of the arch, under which the happy couple stood, where the impressive ring ceremony of the Evangelical Church was performed by Rev. E.

W. Petticord of Lost Springs The bride looked very pretty in a gown of white tafetta silk and carried a boquet of white bride's roses. The bridal veil was held in place with a wreath of white narcissus. The brides maids were dressed in white and wore white carnations. The groom and his attendants wore the conventional black.

After congratulations were showered upon the newly wedded couple the guests repaired to the dining room where a sumptuous two-course repast was served, A white bell was suspended above the center of each of the tables from which white ribbons were draped and fastened with a bow at each corner. The tables were decorated with pink and white carnations and white narcissus.

Almost every daily paper reports robbery and often murder under circumstances similar to the above case. Simply for protection it would pay to carry a bank book and make a little effort to let it be known generally that your money is in the bank.

Farmers State Bank. More Money In Shortfed Cattle, From the Drovers Telegram. J. R. Blythe of White City, who marketed at $6.55, a string of steers yesterday that had been fed over 4 months, thinks there is not enough difference between the long and the short fed steers when they are sold on the market, to pay for the extra feeding.

"The man who feeds over 90 days wiil lose out," said Mr. Blythe. 44T believe that most of the shortfed steers being marketed now are paying a profit. They were bought at a good time along early in the fall when cattle were cheap. But if these steers are held too long they lose out.

The tendency of the whole feeding plan is to, make the feed just as short as possible. The men who bought lamds and other sheep early in the fall and fed them 60 to 90 days made money at it. But the sheep proposition is just the same as cattle feeding; the fellow who hangs to them too long will be a loser. In studying the whole feeding plan we find a general tendency to do the work in a hurry. Very often steers fed but 3 months will sell right with those fed over 4 months.

Then the other change along with feeding is that of marketing stock at a younger age. Now we find most of the steers sold between the ages of 2 and 3 years. Formerly they were 4 to 6 years old. And when we look at hogs we find the same conditions prevailing. Now hogs are marketed at the 10-months age' while in former years they were held till they were a year and a half old.

Perhaps this accounts for the extraordinary number og hogs we have in the country. We have almost 2 crops now in the length of time it required to produce one crop a few years ago." Geo. Hanford, a former White City boy, now at Phoenix, Arizona, in advancing his subscription, to Jan. 1910, writes us that his health is very good now and that he has a good position in a furniture store there.

Have you ever run a furnace through the dark and still night? Have you sought to poke and stroke'er in your nighty? What a sight!

Have you? well of course you didn't -er-hum, that is, you did't swear? Have you tiptoed in the basement where the floor is cold as ice and discovered to your horror that the fire is out? How nice! Have you stepped upon a clinker on the calmy cellar stair and just turned a little handspring in the vapid midnight air?

Have you shivered by the furnace with the pin.ples on your flesh big as berries on a platter and a deuced sight more fresh? Have you daubed your nice white nighty with the coal soot and the grime and just frozen stiff and hoary as you watched the flight of time?
