IS HIT III A
Fred Hreiiunl Trampled by His Horse
Which Hushed the Klg to
Ono of tho worst smashups of tho
many runawnys that liavo ocourrctl In
town this summor happened about .'1
o'clock Inst Tuesday. Trod Hrcn
ard wns tho victim, bolng knocked in
sonslblo and his buggy smashed.
Ho had removed tho brldlo from his
spirited gray trotter that wjjs hitched
to tho park fence opposite Hcrsh
borgcr's barber shop and started to
put on a halter when thohorso quickly
jerked away und dragged him to tho
ground and run over film. The animal
dashed across tho street and upset tho
buggy as ho ran between tho curb and
tho poles In front of Coutant's hard
ware. Tho buggy hit tho polo and tho
horse tore free and ran west without a
strap on him.
Mr. Urenard scrambled to his feet
and started after his horse but was
ovcrcomo as ho crossed tho street cat
track and fell unconscious, ife wns
picked up and enrrlctl to Spcnror's
drug storo and later to Dr. Enoch's
olllco whero n severe, bruise on his
tcmplo was drcssod. Ho will prob
ably soon fully recover.
When tho horso got free from Its
harness it dashed so wildly away that
it ran full ngninst Jim Stafford's
buggy In which ho and P. K. Morrill
were sitting near Coutant's coruor.
A broken shaft und a wrecked wheel
were tho result of tills collision. Tho
horse then lied down hu street und
probably ran until worn out. Ho is a
beauty und It Is too bad ho should bo
I spoiled by his experience.
Mr. Drcnerd is a young nmn and
works at Nicholson's smelter, and
boards on Ohio street in Hricktown.
Dr. Enochs examined him utul says
his A-orst injury Is hts left shoulder
which was badly wrenched, but u cut
over his right oyo probably caused
him to faint.

For this information tho gentlemen
liromoting this enterprise expect to

Secretary Coburn. They will seek to
aid towns and cities throughout tho

sources and advantages. A million
copies of this loallet aro to bo issued
and they will bu given freo to all busi

For n County Pest House.
Tho Countv Commissioners and a
'comniitteo from thu city council mot
'Tuesday to discuss tho question
of a pest hoilHO in which small-pox
patients may bo cared for this coming
winter. It has practicully been deold
cd to oiveet one on tho river road, tho
county and city dividing tho oxponso,
.and tho county, us required by tho
present law, maintaining tho instltu
'tlon. Architect Navo was present and
oullinod his plan, suggosted at u mo-
mont's notice. Ho spoko or a sixteen
room framo, plumbed for gas and
water, to cost botweon $000 and $700.
Jt Is probablo that a joint comralttco
from tho council and tho board will
bo selected with power to act and havo
tho building soon under wuy.
Last yoar ho smallpox cost tho
county closo to $2,000 and tho city was
at some small oxponso. As It la more
than likely tho coming winter will wit
ness ns bad an epidemic tho precaution
of providing a plucc whero tho dlseaso
may bo better and moro economically
handled is wlso. At a pest houso only
those 111 need bo supported, but when
houses nro quarantined tho whol6
family is maintained.
Another (ius Lease Suit.
Joshua Humble has brought suit to
end a gas lease on his land near
Moran. Ho owns tho northeast quar
ter of tho northeast quarter and the
west half of tho northeast quarter of
r-24-20. Ho and his wife loused it In
189(1 to tho Palmer Oil Company and
thoy transferred It to tho Lanyon Zinc
Company. Tho terms wcro tho usual
ones, u well within u year or twenty.
fivo cents an acre annual rental. No
well was drilled and ho says no rental
was paid for 11)01, so ho notified the
company on August 17 that tho leaso
was cancelled. The other day tho
company tried to enter tho land and
begin drilling and ho throw tho ma
terial oil tho place. Ho appllod In
probato court and secured a restrain
ing order to provent drilling and asks
to havo tho leaso declared null and
void. Tho land In question lies ini
mediately adjoining Moran on tho
west and north and tho recent strlko of
gas there probably influenced the slid

As announced Mr. Crouch hopes to

In October In time for the county fair

clared hlsliitentlon of buying unupthii

miles of navigable water, broad and
clear, boating at this point ennnot bo
surpassed in the stato, und when tho

Lecture Course Assured.
Under tho auspices of tho High

service of tho people of this city tho
coming winter, provided enough peo
ple buy tickets to warrant tho signing
of tho live unusually good attractions

To Handle the limns.
Tho police report that Iola Is over
run with vagrants who How into town
in a continuous stream as they aro run
out of other places. There is no rock
pile hero and In tho freo masonry of
Huinlsm this joyous news is passed
along. Somo action with a view to
making Iola less popular would bo
timely and is bolng considered. Tho
rock pllo idea Is an old ono, but its
financial results aro questionable.
Some timo agoono of tho councitmon
declared it hts intention to framo an
ordlnaneo establishing a chain gang.
One boss could superintend a dozen
men on a chain gang und thoy could
work on tho streets with pick aud
shovel. Tho streets certainly need a
whole lot of work, and tho town cer
tainly can get along without tho trav
eling crooks and bums. Something
ought to bo done.

Kansas City, Mo.
Cooper, Oklu., Aug. 22, 1001.
It Is too blamed wet to work so I
will put In 3 llttlo moro timo writing
and tell you something of tho climate
Tho climato Is simply lino and I
think Cooper will become a Ihcalth
resort. It reminds mo moro of tho
cllmnto in tho Itncklos in Colorado
und tho Sierra Madra mountains in
Old Mexico than any other place I over
traveled. Here, as there, tho sun
shines hot, but the moment the clouds
obscure hs rays It becomes nlco und
cool and If you aro not working on a
cloudy day you will certainly hunt up
a coat. Indeed this morning I looked
out of tlio front window (of my tent)
and saw Allen Riggs walking up main
street with his long overcoat on; but
ho was out to Mountain View yester
day and may havo struck some ico
Tho nights aro dollghtfully cool and
comfortable I mean comfortablo If
you havo plenty of blankets to sleep
under. Your llttlo light spreads aro
not in ovldcnco here no uso for them.
Tho soil Is simply good. Some of
It Is almost as red as Major Foust's
houso was last year. Somo bolng
mixed with the dark clement would
pass for mulatto, underlaid with a
porous subsoil and wo are told no mat
ter how much it rains It goos into tho
ground without doing any damage
and If It falls to rain for a fortnight
tho sub-Irrigation keeps crops from
buffering. Coming as wo did from tho
sun burnt plains of tho north and Into
these beautiful valleys wliero tho blue
stem und blue joint grass is from two
tothreoaud a ha!f feel high, and some
even four feet, makes a contrast so
great as to bo almost Inexpressible,
unless I express it us our worthy
townsinun, Hilly Davis, the quondam
miller, when we went upon tlio moun
tain top and feasted our eyes on tho
bountiful valleys, carpeted with verduro
und dillcrent ranges of mountains
rearing their majestic heads hcaven
wurds. Ho just yolled out: "Whoopco!
Don't it beat tho dovil?" Tho short
grass consists mostly of Mosquito and
HutTalo grass. Tho long grass mostly
Hluo Stem und llltio Joint. Tho latter
I holieve, would make molasses us it
is about as sweet as sugar cuno or
sorghum. This certainly has been tho
cattleman's paradise. Thoy aro loth
to leavo It. Thousands of cattle aro
still grazing hero and nearly overy
day come into town nnd are us fat as
mud; plenty of grass hero for thous
ands moro, Tho cowboys and In
dians como in overy day and seem to
llko us. They spend considerable
monoy at our stores. Lono Wolf has
visited us a timo or two, ulso some
blanket Indians como in. Hut thoy
would llko for tho whlto man to get
out. Of this I will say moro later.
While speaking of tho soil I deslro
to say that thero Is no doubt but what
this will develop Into ono of tho finest
ugrlcultutal countries on earth If crops
aro not destroyed by too much rain.
I ran on to an old imnv comrado
sovoral days ago who has been i.ero
nearly ten years and somo ono In tho
crowd said "I wisli it would rain"
and he said, "don't wish for it to rain
for if it starts to rain you'll pray for
It to stop."
Hundieds of tons of tho finest hay
could ho put up right hero but not a
pound is in sight. Thoy say It cures
nicely on tho ground and is iust as
good for stock as if mado Into hay
will keep stock nlco and fat all tho
winter through and Is loss expensive.
This seems to bo tho lazy man's
stronghold and If a few loaves of
broad would grow on tho trees ( beans
do) they'd bo fixed. But I seo this
letter Is going to bo too long and I'll
desist and give you another for to
Hogs Saved from Oholerif.
Hog cholora recently broke-out In
tho herd of 100 which W. K. Lyons
owns und ho hit upon a treatmont that
ho bollovcs actually saved him not less
than seventy head. In tho hope that
others may profit by his oxperienco ho
told a RixiiSTUit roportor ubout his

Whilo Charlos I). Storey was help

he wns precipitated to tho ground by
a falling polo and serwmsly injured.
Ho was on top of tho polo when It fell,
pl'chlng him on to the railroad track,
and tho polo falling on top of him.
Ills hip und shoulder wero baUlybruls

ho was taken, whero tho doctor found
no bones broken.
A fow minutes after this accident,
John Hundley, a colored young man
from Ottowa, who has been working
In tho sacking room, was helping
move the sacking machine when tho
heavy wheel ran onto his foot, mash
ing it against tho cement lloor. Ho
guvo a yell that nearly raised the
roof. "I'se been carved by niggers
many a timo, but I novuh had nothing
hurt llko that did," ho said to a ro
portor. It is possible ho may lose a
too or two, but tho doctor had not
reported when tho Hfusteu went to
l'est Houso Decision Soon.
The meeting of tho commissioners
and council Tuesday resulted in the
planning of another meeting ono week
later when architect Navo will submit
dollnito pluns und estimates on u sult

both recognlo tho necessity of such a

over dividing tho expense Last winter
some houses wero quarantined In Iola

of fourteen, and tho entlro fourteen
wero fed by tho county. Next winter
the patient will bo removed to tho re

excellent nursing, pure water and
food, and medical care.
Tho meeting yosterduy grow rather
boisterous over tho prospect of putting
Dr. Teas, the county health olllcer In
quarantine. Tho doctor has boon 111
for sovorul days and has kept to his
room, because somo of his symptoms
hinted of possible smallpox. Tho doc
tor will take no chances and will not

The RixubTUR's old friend, "Eye
witness," led this paper Into soveral
errors In reporting John Wood's fast
drive Saturday evening. Mr. Mont
gomery was not a horso buyer, but was
a newspaper man and wanted to' go to
Humboldt. John hitched up a pair of
spirited colls to tako him down there,
and because tho colts ran away when
last hitched up four months ago, ho
drovo moro slowly than usual until ho
reached the Pennsylvania hotel, whero
Montgomery got In. Tho colts got
restless thero and when tho start south
was mado, they got in u hurry. Over
tho sldo went Mr. Montgomery but
John stuyed with tho teuin until lie
stopped it, although tho buggy hit
only about twice to tho block and he
had all ho wanted to do in a fust half
mllo to rogain control. Ho was not
"driving fast" becauso he could not
stop, and It was not a runaway be
cause ho could guldo and did stop tho
team, with their jaws bleeding. Tho
police did not lecture him for fast
driving for it was ovident no man
would drive that clip for amusement.
