In 1762, after the French and Indian War, France secretly ceded New France to Spain, per the Treaty of Fontainebleau. In 1802, Spain returned most of the land to France. In 1803, most of the land for modern day Kansas was acquired by the United States from France as part of the 828,000 square mile Louisiana Purchase for 2.83 cents per acre. In 1854, the Kansas Territory was organized in 1861 Kansas became the 34th U. S. state. In 1867, Reno County was established.

Shagai Plateau

Shagai Plateau referred to as Shagai Heights is an area of flat lands along the Khyber Pass. Fort Al Creator was nearby; the ascent to the Shagai Plateau begins near the entrance to the Khyber Pass from the southeast at Peshawar in what is now Pakistan. It was the site of a British encampment during the Second Anglo-Afghan War which began in November 1878 when Great Britain, fearful of what it saw as growing Russian influence in Afghanistan, invaded the country from British India; the first phase of the war ended in May 1879 with the Treaty of Gandamak, which permitted the Afghans to maintain internal sovereignty but forced them to cede control over their foreign policy to the British. Fighting resumed in September 1879, after an anti-British uprising in Kabul, concluded in September 1880 with the decisive Battle of Kandahar.

The Tale of the Giant Rat of Sumatra

The Tale of the Giant Rat of Sumatra is the seventh comedy album released by the Firesign Theatre and released in January 1974 by Columbia Records. "Chapter 1 - Not Quite The Solution He Expected" "Chapter 2 - An Outrageously Disgusting Disguise" "Chapter 3 - Where There's Smoke, There's Work" "Chapter 4 - Where Did Jonas Go When The Lights Went Out?" "Chapter 5 - Pickles Down The Rat Hole!" "Chapter 6 - The Electrician Exposes Himself!" The title is derived from an aside in the Sherlock Holmes short story "The Adventure of the Sussex Vampire," written by Arthur Conan Doyle in 1924. "Matilda Briggs was not the name of a young woman, Watson," said Holmes in a reminiscent voice. "It was a ship, associated with the giant rat of Sumatra, a story for which the world is not yet prepared." Holmes fans and writers of Sherlockiana have speculated on the nature of the giant rat story for decades. The Firesign Theatre version seems to begin with Watson about to write the tale anyway since the pair are desperate for money, but he never quite gets around to telling it.

Philip Proctor plays detective Hemlock Stones and David Ossman plays Flotsam, his "patient doctor and biographer". The lighthearted tale is full of puns, including a running gag in which Flotsam, eager to chronicle the adventure, tries to write down everything Stones says but mishears it all as something similar-sounding. Allusions are made to Sherlock Holmes's use of cocaine, his violin playing, other familiar story elements. Following a string of solo projects and anthologies, this was the group's first album to consist of a single cohesive narrative since I Think We're All Bozos on This Bus. An earlier version of these sketches, released as the bootleg By the Light of the Silvery, is closer to the spirit of the group's nightclub performances, is strikingly reminiscent of The Goon Show, one of the group's main inspirations, it bears no resemblance to the version, committed to vinyl. This album was followed by Everything You Know Is Wrong and In the Next World, You're on Your Own before the group ended its association with Columbia Records.

This album was released on LP and 8 Track. LP - Columbia KC-32730 8 Track - Columbia CA-32730It has been re-released on CD at least once 2001 - Laugh.com LGH1076 Members of the group themselves have taken varied attitudes towards this album. In the liner notes to Shoes for Industry: The Best of the Firesign Theatre, David Ossman was cheerful when discussing it and said that "I always thought it was the closest thing to the relentlessly pun-filled one-acts we did in clubs." Phil Austin, on the other hand, said, "The Sherlock Holmes album didn't do anybody any good... the general public was by that point beginning to tire of psychedelia anyway, we were always going to be associated with that." The review in 1983's The New Rolling Stone Record Guide calls this album "A halfassed comeback containing only one good joke."The Firesign Theatre commentary website benway.com calls it "the least understood Firesign album" and notes that "careful listening reveals Firesign in all their glory: poetic, silly and filled with meaning and non-meaning alike.

It is well worth repeated listenings—it rivals "Bozos" and "Dwarf" in number of listenings—and pays dividends of laughter and insight." Firesign Theatre. The Tale of the Giant Rat of Sumatra.
