Never Saw the Like.
From the Kansas City Times.
Every one who comes to Kansas
City from Kansas these days has his
own particular stock of stories to tell
£b&ut the wonderful crops in that
state. Among the Sunflower pil
grims who landed in the city on Sat
urday, was Charlie Barrett, the good-
looking and talkative traveling pas
senger agent of the Missouri Pacific.
He had spent four or five days in
Southern Kansas, and his mouth was
going at the rate of f>00 revolutions a
minute about crops, when lie was
flagged by a Times man on Main
“What!” he exclaimed, “you never
saw the like! The farmers down in
Southern Kansas had to rent the pub
lic roads to get room enough to stack
the wheat. Wasn’t room enough in
the fields to hold the stacks. I saw
“How is the fruit crop?”
“Fruit! You never saw the like!
Apples as big as cannon balls, grow
ing in clusters ns big as hay slacks. I
saw one apple tree that ”
“Don’t the trees break down ?”
“Trees! You never saw the like?
The farmers plant sorghum in the
orchards and the stalks grow up like
telegraph pole.? and supported the
limbs. I saw one stalk of sorghum
that was two feet ”
“How is the broom corn crop?”
“Broom corn! You never saw the
like! There hasn’t been a cloudy
dny in Southern Kansas for a month.
Can’t cloud up. The broom corn
grew so high that it kept tho clouds
swept of! the face of the sky as clear
ns a new floor. They will have to
cut the corn down if it gets too dry.
Some of the broom cornstalks are so
high that ”
“How is the corn crop ?"
“Corn! Yon never saw the like!
Down in the.Neosho and Fall river
and Arkansas bottoms, the corn is as
high as a house. They use step-lad
ders to gather roasting cars.”
“Aren’t step-ladders pretty expen
“Expensive! Well, I should say
so; but that isn’t the worst of it. The"
trouble is-that the children climb lip
into the cornstalks to hunt for eagles’
nests, and some times fall out and
kill them selves. Fourteen funerals
in one county last week from that
entfse. I attended all of tltcm. That
is why I - am so sad.. And, miml you,
the corn is not more than half grown.
A man at Arkansas City lias invented
a machine which lie calls ‘The .Solar
Corn Harvester and Child Protector.’
It is inflated with gas like a balloon
and floats over the corn tops, and the
occupants reach down and cut oil the
ears of corn with a cavalry saber.
Every Kansas farmer lias a cavalry
saber, and ”
“Do they make much eider in
“Cider! -You never saw the like!
Oceans of it! Most of the farmers in
Crowley county have tilled their cis
terns with cider. A proposition was
made a few days since to the water
works company of Arkansas City to
supply the town with cider throng
the ninius, but the company was com
pelled to decline because they were
afraid the cider would rust the
pumps. They were sorry but they
said they would have to continue to
furnish water, although it cost more.
I saw one farmer who ”
“How is the potato crop'!”
"Potatoes! You never saw the
like! A man in Sedgwick county
dug a potato .the other day that was
so big lie used the cavity it grew in
for a cellar. I saw one' potato that
"The people must be happy over
their big crops ?”
“Happy ! You never saw the like!
I know men in the Arkansas valley
who were too poor this time last year
tff flag a bread wagon, and now they
have pie three times a day. One
fell«w that ”
But the reporter, just at this point,
had a pressing engagement elsewhere.
