KANSAS: POSTS and COYOTES
Limestone posts of Kansas have supported barbed wire fences throughout North Central Kansas since the 1870s. They reflect the sturdy character of the ingenious pioneers who conceived and erected them. A man-made “Garden of Eden” in Lucas, Russell Co., Kansas is the heart of the stone post country. Pictured is a Kansas coyote (a small wolf of the western prairies whose weight average is 30 pounds.)

BAD POEM on a BAD POSTCARD
I love to walk by the seashore,
On the clean white sand so bare,
I love to walk by the rippling waves
For I find refuge there.
I love to walk by the seashore
When a white fog’s in the air;
When a pallid mist o’shadows the beach
And no breeze is stirring there.
I love to walk by the seashore
And watch the waves in motion,
I love the sea in all its moods
For God made the mighty ocean.
by THEODORE R. ROWLEY
