Your master's a vagabond Minus a coin or a friend, Shabby and shambling and overfond Of the cup that makes to offend. But to you he's a prince, a god, More precious than your life-breath. he spares not the curse nor the rod Though You would follow him unto the death.

Poor dog with the honest eyes, Sorrowful. deep and brave, Your master may win to a paradise; But you have no soul to save. Comely and full of grace, Gentle and fleet and strong, Looking the whole big world in the face, Knowing not how to wrong. Knowing not how to lie, Unmoral, yet free from sinYou snub not the low nor toady the high, What a world for a dog to be in! TueBut follow your lord while you can, bum; Though his brain's but a whiskey-fog; He's greater than yon, he's a man, And you're only a. fool of a dog.

Capital and labor invested in farms are well rewarded; and agriculture prosperity, where, as, with us, agriculture is the principal business, insures the prosperity of the other businesses. Society in Kansas is even better than its farms. None are very rich, few are very poor. We are omnivorous readers, independent thinkers, hearty and hospitable, free to an unusual extent from clannishness and provincialism, with a triple defense against the saloon individual preference, public opinion, and the majesty of the law. -Edwin Taylor, Pres.

Board of Agriculture, 1901-'02. Weather Report for January 1914. Issued by the University of Kansas at Lawrence, and continuing the record kept by the late Dr. F. H.

The President's Cabinet Louis Kaub, a student of Baker university, gave a very delightful entertainment at the church Saturday night.

The entertainment was instructive as well as entertaining and the people of Michigan Valley will gladly welcome Mr. Kaub back to give more such entertainments.
