From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for Dec. 11, 1911:
"Perry is to have electric lights, with a complete electric lighting system. The proposition to vote $5000 worth of bonds carried yesterday.... The bonds will go to install an electric light plant."
"That the nurseries of Kansas produce the greater part of the world's supply of apple seedlings was one of the facts brought out in the report of Prof. S. J. Hunter, state entomologist to the Kansas State Horticultural Society today. Shawnee and Douglas counties raise most of the seedlings, and the supply, distributed to all parts of the world, is guaranteed free from insects and other orchard pests by the state's system of nursery inspection. In the year covered by the report, Professor Hunter and his staff inspected 17 million fruit trees in various parts of the state, 300 acres of small fruits, and 67 million forest and fruit seedlings."
