For the first time in 13 years Ignace Paderewski, the world’s great pianist, is to play in Wichita Tuesday, Feb. 10. The concert will be given in the Forum, probably the only building in the state capable of accommodating the crowds. Special trains will be run into Wichita from all directions.

Mrs. O.M. Peoples was quite severely bruised last Sunday night as the result of an accident that might easily have done more serious injury. While she and Rev. Peoples were driving home from Aulne their horse became unruly — being crowded by two autos — and wheeled, overturning the buggy. Mr. Peoples was thrown clear of the buggy but Mrs. Peoples was caught beneath and dragged across the road. The buggy then righted itself and she was released. Mrs. Peoples was unconscious until nearly noon the following day. She was badly bruised around the arms and shoulders, but it is believed that she suffered no permanent injury.
