About a year ago the Kansas City papers became hysterical about divorces. A result of the agitation by the papers was the appointment of a young lawyer in Kansas City who was called a Divorce Proctor. For several terms he has been looking up applications for divorce and in appearing before the judges of the Circuit Court for parties who otherwise would permit the divorce to go by default. No there is no money to pay for the Divorce Proctor and he will probably be dismissed. There is no law providing for such an official and no money provided to pay for such an official.

At a fish barbecue at Atherton, Scott Ayers told how he used to catch fish when he lived on the small Blue. He said he would wade into the creek and feel along under the logs and under the banks, and by handling the fish easy one could tickle them on the back or scratch them on the gills or put his finger in the mouth or in the gills. The fish would never move, but any little extra jog would send Mr. Fish scattering in a hurry. He said he had to carry both hands in bandages for several days because of the fight of the catfish. Ayers, being a modest man, refused to go any further with his fish adventures.
