Jiorrllilp Accident lit Nicholson Smelt
or Maims Kiirl Stout For Ml'c
Caught In Big CrimliiM.
Ono of tho most torrible accidents
which has happened at tho factories
about horo for many a day occurred
last Tuesday when Karl Stout, tho
eighteen year old son of Mr. and Mrs.
-J. Ij. Stout, had his arm caught in a
powerful crusher and so mangled uuil
torn that tho physicians took it ofT be
tween tho elbow and the shoulder.
Tho bty was working In tho crusher
room, whero tho oro from tho cars is
run botween heavy ironcyllnders which
weigh hundreds of pounds. It was
his task to shovel tho crushed oro into
tho elovator buckets which carried it
away. About "::t0 that morning after
bo had been at work some tlmo ho
started to leavo Ills post, stepping past
tho crusher. In somo way ho stumbled
and fell, naturally putting out his arm
to catch himself. Hy an awful mls
chanco his stiffened arm wont right
into tho crusher and tho revolving iron
caught instantly at his mitten and bo
fore ho could draw It away tho arm
was drawn Into tho machinery above
tho elbow. Tho relentless wheels
ground and chowed the arm until tho
forearm foil away from tho upper arm.
Aa niiliddv as nosslblo another work
man stopped tho machinery and tho
anangled boyvas taken out. Medical as
sistance was summoned and a bandage
o stop tho rapidly flowing blood was
temporarily put in placo, and tho boy
then removed to Dr. Cox's olllco whero
ho removed tho arm, assisted by Drs.
Teas and McDowell.
Tho only person near at hand when
tho accident happonod was tho man
who works above tho crusher. Ho
hoard tho boy's cries for help and
hurrlod to his assistance. Tho boy's
story of falling into thocrushcr is dis
credited by somo of tho inon as a piece
of oro was found stuck In tho crusher
and it Is thought ho may havo roachod
his hand In to frco It. Tho boy was
wild with pain and terribly excited
and honco It Is thought ho may not
have known how it happened although
Jho says ho fell Into tho crusher.
Tho loss of his light arm is a mighty
serious loss to a young man and Karl
.Stout will bo handicapped tho rest of
Ihls lifo. Ho has been working at tho
smelter threo months. Ills father was
for a long tlmo employed by P. W.
Fitzgerald in tho transfer business
and camo hero two years ugo from
Missouri. They llvo In east Iola.
A. h. Taylor has Resigned.
Mr. A. L. Taylor, president of tho
old and existing commercial club, has
resigned, having tendered his resigna
tion to tho secretary, Mr. L. L. North
run Snturdav. This loaves what re
mains of a club without a head, and
makes nioro urgent tho necessity of
forming that new club.
Speaking of the now club one man
tolls the Kixustiui that ho has talked
tho matter over with sovoral men and
thoy are all agreed that a now club
would bo a good thing. All were
agroed, however, that they thought tho
old club should maintain its organiza
tion and tho newness consist of
tho addition of now members. Tho
trouble with this Is that tho president
of tho old club has resigned already
and tho other actlvo members aro anx
ious to turn tho duties over to new
What Is needed is a popular recog
nition of this neod of a club and a de
mand for a public meeting whero the
club may bo discussed and tho first
steps taken toward organization. This
done, each member could seo to it that
another good membor is secured, and
whon 100 members wore secured tho
club could bo organized and plan Its
campaign for tho good of Iola. Tho
HiiCUSTUK will glvo spaco froo for an
nouncing such a mooting. Now this Is
tho season to organize.

A Guthrlo dispatch dated February

of a formcrly-of-Iola man:
"A movement has been started by
tho friends of Prosldent A. C. Scott,
of tho Agricultural and Mechanical
college at Stillwater, to make him
president of tho Alva Normal school
to succeed James K. Atncnt, who re
tires from the head of tho institution
in July next. Tho bolcctlon of a suc
cessor Is to bo made at tho next quart
erly meeting of tho board of educa
tion, which is in April. There aro
numerous candidates for tho position,
but tho members of tho board aro at a
loss to know just who to place at tho
hoad of tho Alva institution.
"As yet thero has been no public
announcement of that fact that Scott's
friends aro working to placo him in
tho president's chair at Alva. Tho
work will be done quietly, and it Scott
is not selected, ho will contlnuo as
president of the A. and M. college.
Ho has made a succoss of tho college
at Stillwater and thoso persons who
havo been watching the Alva Normal
boliovo that ho can straighton out the
situation thero bettor than anyono in
President Scott Is now In Washing
ton whore ho is working to incrcaso
tho appropriation for tho Agricultral
college He has enlisted tho aid of
Congressman Plynn and tho two will
mako a determined effort to pull their
moasuro through. As an educator and
public mun, thero aro nono belter
known in Oklahoma. President Scott
Is an orator always in demand, and
his friends predict that with the execu
tive ability ho posscssos, ho will be
ablo to Install harmony In tho Alva
institution as far as It its connection
with Alva and tho rest of tho territory
is concerned. It is not known whether
President Scott knows of tho move

Alva institution or not, but his friends
aro working just tho samo."
Moriin Seeking Moro (Jus
Tho Company which has tho gas
franchise at Moran has moved tho
moved tho drilling outllt to tho Chas.
Wilson placo about a milo oast of La
Harpo. Thoy .havo 11 loaso on the
Wilson placo and expect to strlko a
good well thoroso if tho wells which
thoy havo at Moran provo unsatisfac
tory thoy can plpo tho gas to Moran.
When tho first Moran woll was drill
ed It supplied an abundance of gas
and tho pressure was strong but no
cut off was put on to "blow off" tho
woll, and It has nover beon blown out
sinco it was drilled. As soon aa the
weather gets warm enough that tho gas
can bo shut oil' a half a day tho cap
will bo llxed and It is hoped that when
tho well is blown out it will incrcaso
Tho Lanyon Zinc Company is drill
ing a woll on tho Cofftuan farm west
of Moran but thoy wero obliged to
stop on ac-ount of cold weather.
It looks now as if some of thoso
days interesting things may bo dis
covered along tho Neosho river bo
tween Humboldt and Iola. From
Chanuto to Humboldt oil loasos aro
bolng taken and good oil wolls aro
boing found. Recently Humboldt has
found somo good gas wolls northwest
of town and thero aro sovoral oil wolls
in that neighborhood Iboing pumped.
Not long slnco Mrs, W. C. Jones sold
her farm a milo south of Iola and a
milo west, next tho river, to tho Iola
Hrlck Company for a good figure
Tho brick company Is not buying
farms for fun, Wost of Iola on tho
Josh Butler farm is a weak gas woll
that Hows oil. At Neosho Falls nino
miles up tho rivor oil Is found. Tho
day may eomo whon a row of dorrlcks
will follow tho curves of tho river
from Chanuto to Neosho Falls and tho

Rumors of tho building of another
Portland Cement plant In this section
have been moro or less frequent over
slnco tho fact was established that tho
present plant Is a great succoss. Tho
rumors havo nover been tery definite
or certain however.
Tho RiXiiSTUU Wednesday re
ceived through tho mall an Interesting
letter. It contained nolther date lino
nor signature, was written on n type
writer, and evidently was Intended not
to convoy any idea as to tho source
whenco It camo. So to tho Interest
which tho contents has is added tho
interest of mystery.
Tho Icttor Is as follows:
"Options havo recently been ob
tained on sovoral hundred acres of
land adjoining tho Iola Cement Com
pany property. This land lies both
south and wost of tho Iola Company's
plant, and Is crossed by tho Atchison,
Topeka & Santa Po railroad and als
Is bounded by tho Neosho river.
"Tho parties who obtained tho op
tions now aro negotiating with East
ern capitalists, and havocvery reason
to boliovo that a now Portland Cement
plant will bo erected tho coming year,
with a capacity fully as largo as tho
Iola Cement Company plant."
Accepting this prophecy as correct,
both as to tho slzo of tho works and
tho certainty of itsostabllshmcnt, Iola
has a bright future Tho present
Portland Cement plant employs somo
GOO men, has a pay roll of $15,000 to
$20,000 a month, and makes 3,000
barrels of cement every day. It is
one of tho greatest factors In tho up
building of Iola and if another works
of tho same si.o is to go in hero It
moans that tola must at onco movo up
A Very Tangled biiWMitlt.
Tho Humboldt bank failure years
ago still manages to entangle the
court records with a maze of Intercuts.
Mrs. N. K. Fisher has filed a new
suit that Is Intricate and mixed.
Her husband was administrator of
the cstato of August K. Barber, father
of tho president of tho bank. K, A.
Barber and G. C. Barber gavo to him
a note for $2,243.00, pay ablo "six
months after tho death of Anna M.
Barbor," tholr mother. Two thirds
of this noto was paid ofT, Mrs. Bar
ber dying tho year after tho noto was
glvon. Thon Paul Fisher resigned
and G. C. Barber was made adminis
trator, Fisher going on his bond.
Later Barber was removed and'Chas.
SchatTncr mado receiver, Barbor be
coming bankrupt. Paul Fisher died,
und his wifo became administrator of
his estate SohalTner sued her and
got judgment for tho balance remain
ing due on tho noto glvon by tho Bar
bers but which thoy never tried to col
lect against themselves. Mrs. Fisher
paid tho amount and then secured tho
noto. K. A. Barber, bank president,
removed to Missouri, but claims
equities in various pieces of land.
Recently tho district cort decided, in
tho suil of J. B. Charles vs N. 13.
Fisher, that Barber owned a fourth
Interest In tho laml. Mrs. Fisher now
sues for tho sura sho paid on that noto
and will attach Barber's share In tho
Charles land. This is tho story as sot
