Lyon County Historical Facts Provided by Lyon County Historical Society Laundry employees noticed that Colonel Roosevelt had an abundance of silk shirts when they did his laundry in September of 1912. He wore a size 15 ½ collar and used small wooden buttons to secure the back of his collars. His suitcase full of soiled clothing included 60 shirts, 40 pairs

of socks, 40 handkerchiefs, and more than 100 collars which were detachable from the shirts. There remained 22 collars, 10 shirts, 10 suits of underwear, and a few other articles to be sent on to Oklahoma City to be laundered. Politicians, always be aware of the fact that newspapermen are looking for stories anywhere – even at the laundry!

The October 3, 1912, first page of the Emporia Gazette waxes nostalgic about pawpaws. According to the reporter, the first light frost had mellowed up the paw paws along the fringe of timber lining Kansas streams. Pawpaws, a fruit of the wilderness, links civilized man to his Neolithic ancestors when men ate pawpaws before they built fires,

before they polished their weapons of war. “Smell a pawpaw,” the writer urges. “Take a deep breath…Inhale the woods and the deep tangles and soft earth of the deep ravine; there comes back the picture of still green water, and cool sunny days, of the turtle on the log, of the water snake curling over the tree in the slough.”

The Public is Invited to Provide Input for a Large Event Plan and Environmental Assessment at Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve Preserve Superintendent, Wendy Lauritzen, announced that Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve is in the process of preparing a Large Event Plan and Environmental Assessment (EA). The purpose of the document is to evaluate large event possibilities, such as the Symphony in the Flint Hills, and analyze potential impacts to resources associated with these types of events. The process of defining the “large event” has only just begun. Cur-

rently, the planning team is developing alternatives that will evaluate objectives and goals related to large events and consider associated resource impacts. Important components of the plan and EA will be to protect the preserve’s core natural and cultural resources. To assist in this review, park staff has drafted a few criteria to spark ideas related to providing large events at the preserve. We are currently considering the following event parameters: number of visitors,

event and parking areas, maximum duration, noise limits, permitting requirements, and safety and other contingency plans. There are other parameters that may establish criteria within the process of completing this analysis, such as event location(s), frequency of occurrence, and staffing requirements. Your input will be greatly appreciated as we evaluate the criteria and potential impacts during this planning process. A key goal for the Na-

Medical Arts Clinic

tional Park Service (NPS) is to meet the mandate of the Organic Act, which established the bureau in 1916. The Organic Act states that the NPS must “conserve the scenery and the natural and historic objects and the wild life [in national parks] and to provide for the enjoyment of the same in such manner and by such means as will leave them unimpaired for the enjoyment of future generations.” Consistent with this mandate, important components of the plan and EA will be to protect the preserve’s core natural and cultural resources. We invite you to

participate early in the environmental assessment process and the planning and development of this document. This project will be accessible to you at the following website, http://parkplanning.nps. gov/. Documents will be posted to the site as they become available. An open house will be held on Wednesday, March 12, 2014 from 3 to 7 p.m. at the preserve’s new Visitor Center located at 2480B Ks. Hwy 177, two miles north of Strong City. Comments concerning this process and plan are welcome and can either be sent to the above address or to: tapr_superintendent@nps.

gov. Comment period ends March 31, 2014. We look forward to your attendance and input to this important planning process. Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve is located two miles north of Strong City on Kansas State Highway 177 (the Flint Hills National Scenic Byway) and is a partnership between The Nature Conservancy and the National Park Service. For more information, visit the preserve’s Facebook page at http:// TallgrassPrairie , website at, email tapr_interpretation@nps. gov, or call (620) 273-8494.

OLD NEWS IS FUN NEWS Provided by the North Lyon County Historical Society and Museum at Admire, Kansas NORTH LYON COUNTY JOURNAL, FEBRUARY 10, 1905 - Last night was the time set for turning on


the electric lights in the town of Admire. A place of less than 300 indulging in a luxury of this kind, and Americus four times as old and twice as large has not yet begun to think of such splendor and magnificence. (copied from The

Americus greeting) - The electric lights in Admire have, so far, failed to make their appearance, which is no fault of the management as the intense cold weather has made it impossible to perform outside work.

- Owing to the severe cold weather and poor train service, the Journal editor has been unable to secure the usual amount of news this week. - Dan Echols from north of Allen has a curiosity in the form of a snake

which he found in his big water tank that is fed by a spring. Dan is at a loss to know how the reptile got into the tank, as it was apparently dead when discovered. After it was taken to the house and thawed out, it was as

active as any snake in the good old summertime. Dan has preserved the snake and will use it for illustrative purposes when lecturing someone on temperance subjects (drinking alcohol).

Last week, we discussed the art of researching and identifying an antique and suggested that the Internet can be frustrating and unreliable and suggested that when all else fails, books and trained librarians may be the answer. In this case, however, no book will guide you and the Internet may be the only way to go _ not for info on when these candlesticks were made or where, but how much they might be worth today. Our knowing about these candlesticks is based on the fact that we are “geezers” _ old folks who actually remember when these were new.

They came in a variety of sizes _ many with matching centerpieces and/or fruit bowls _ and they all had this Continental European rococo style with the same drop prisms. The older and “better” examples have glass prisms, later pieces have acrylic prisms of the same shape. How do you tell the difference?

the 1960’s or a tad later. In collecting, items from the mid-century are hot right now and items from the 1960’s are part of this collecting trend. Does this apply to these candlesticks? Sadly, no. What collectors want right now is “mid-century” mod-

ern, and from the 60’s they want the characteristic “mod” and “psychedelic” pieces that are so characteristic of the time period. These candlesticks are imitative of an 18th century French style called “rococo,” which is characterized by depictions of rocks, shells, fruit, flowers, “C” scrolls, ribbons, acanthus leaves and curved lines. This pair of candlesticks

has “C” scrolls, leaves and flower representations, and the candle cups are supposed to represent stylized flower buds. But because they pay tribute to the 18th century, they are not of much interest to collectors who are looking for “mid-century” modern because they are just not to their taste. Usually, we see the place of origin for candlesticks such

as these listed as “Italy,” but we are not entirely sure of this. They may be American because they are not marked with the country of origin (of course, they could have had an easily removed paper label saying “Made In Italy.” For insurance purposes (retail) this pair of candlesticks should be valued in the $60 to $85 range.
