HAKES. Short Talks on Community Facts Copyright, 1916, by Wess Goodwin. Kansas Losing Money and Men. ESTIMATES based on official figures, which are backed up by over-the-state figures of Kansas investigators, show that the people of Kansas are sending out of the state in a retail way the enormous sum of 20 million dollars a year to buy goods which could be bought in the state, and which in nearly every instance could be bought in the purchaser's own home town. And here are some state population figures which will be of interest in this connection: In 1912 sixty-eight Kansas counties, and 252 Kansas country towns and villages had fewer people in them than they had twelve months before in 1911.

The state as a whole lost seventeen and during that twelve months period, yet the larger cities of the state increased in population. In 1914 seventy-one Kansas counties and 294 Kansas country towns and villages had fewer people in them than they had 12 months before in 1913. The state as a whole lost 13,000 during that 12 month period, yet the larger cities of the state continued to increase in population. And the figures for 1915 spied that in spite of the fact that the cities of Kansas had continued to grow--had continued to increase in population--we had in 1915 in the state of Kansas 34 thousand less people than we had in 1909, seven years ago. Out-ofthe-state buying means big busijess for the city--it means increased population; it means increased prosperity.

It means more jobs -it means that more country boys will be city wage earners--that fewer country boys will be Kansas farm owners. Outof-the-state buying means ruin to the local community; it means a slow market at home--less retail trade--fewer local industriesfewer jobs-a slump in population-decreased property values. It means a lack of community interest, a loss of community spirit. It means dead towns in the state of Kansas. Kansas men and Kansas women who love their state should urge their friends to stick by Kansas institutions.

You Can Save Classy Basket Ball. We knew when the Greenleaf High School team was scheduled to play basket ball here with our High School team there would be something doing on the court every minute from the time the whistle blew to start until the pistol shot called time, but we little tho't it would be such a battle royal. The Greenleaf team came Friday afternoon accompanied by a large crowd of rooters who filled the air with Greenleaf High School yells. They brought along with them a supreme confidence which they had obtained from the former defeat which they had administered to the Clyde boys at Greenleaf. But although the Clyde boys knew that they would have to fight and fight hard for victory, yet they went into the game with a determination to win.

Trouble started immediately with the whistle, but despite the intense rivalry between these two teams a good, clean game was played by both sides, it being necessary to call but few fouls on either. At the end of the first half Greenleaf had the lead, the score being 13 to 10. But this slight advantage only made the Clyde boys fight the harder during the secondary period, at the end of which the score was tied, 17 to 17. It was then, consequently, necessary to play an extra five minutes, during which each team added four points to their score, but could not gain the victory. But another five minutes decided the question to the of Clyde, the score, when there was only ten seconds left to play, being Clyde, 27; Greenleaf, 23.

At this time one of the Greenleaf boys was unfortunately injured and the game was considered at an end. We had never seen before such brilliant basket ball as was pulled off on the court that night by our stars, Cleland, Cibolsky and Ericson. The other boys, Egbert and McCarty, were, likewise, in the game every minute and deserve special mention for their work. The A. O.

He gave a dinner in which every dish contained alfalfa as a component or a flavor. He also increased the nitrogenous principles the plant by careful selection and propagation. His work was but just beginning to bear fruit when, unfortunately, he was carried off by pneumonia. The preliminary steps have been taken. It now remains for the commercial handlers to introduce alfalfa in forms available for human use, and then by judicious publicity to render the public familiar with it.

We look to see alfalfa flour adding materially to the world's food supply, increasing the growth of the young and the r'eproductivity of the adult, while at the same time it solves the question of the increasing cost of living, by presenting large quantities of nutritious pabulum, produced at a cost of about one-fourth of a cent per pound.

Our Printing Is Unexcelled. The Hickville Weekly Gimlet Copyricht, 1916, by Wess Goodwin UNCLE BEN AND UNCLE JIM UNCLE BEN received a dollar when he sold his Duroc shoat. He took it to our clothier and he bought a Sunday coat. And the clothier took the dollar and jammed it in his jeans, then hurried to the groeers, where he bought a mess of greens. And the grocer gave the dollar to the man who, handles shoes and the shoe man gave the dollar to the man who runs the News--and the News man dropped the dollar in the village baker's till, and the baker gave the dollar to the man who runs the mill--and the miller swapped the dollar for a load of Kansas wheat-and that dollar still is chasing right smack up and down our street.
