for llfo. Granted a small ponslou by
tho government and succeeding in
drawing a claim in tho Oltlohomulaud
tone ry, ho still was too weak to uso
tlio niiiius thus at his command to
travel In search of health. Tho end
has not been unexpected for months,
but tho soldier bad a lirm determina
tion to get well anil showod such sur
prising strength and cheerfulness that
his friends had como to hopo against
hopo that a change- would eorao and
ho would recover.
But tho end oamo Saturday and
Allon county has another soldier who

was not only a atoady, obedient sol

Parsons Sun: The I'arsons haso
ball enthusiasts havo tho past few
days boon thinking seriously of mak
ing an ellort to procure a frunchiso
from tho Missouri Valloy League and
to put a llrst class team of bail play
ers in 1'jrsons ne.t season. It is
possible that either Clianute or Tola
will not havo a franchise noxt season,
and if tho proper steps aro tuken at
the proper timo thero is no reason
why I'arsons could not obtain a
franchise. Itisthuconeetisuiof opinion
tint but littlo dillleulty would be met
with in organizing a company that
would furnish botli tho capital to

suitable park. Tlieio aro a great
number of admit crs of tho national

Iola School Ilttlldliifr.
An intero.ting littlo contest, in
which Iola, is chiefly interested bo-
luso it threatened to dolay tho com
pletion of the now cast sldo school
building, has bconqulotly, but unsuc
cessfully wagjd hero for son.o weeks.
When tlio school board let contracts
for the now school houso it hail bids
for furnlturo for tho building. Tho
contract was to bo tot to tho lowoot
possible blddor. Tito board made a
contract with tlio Hudson L'urnlturo
Compuny. Not long aflerwurds tho
agent for tho Hell Company, a Kansas
Clly dealer, wlo had also bid and
failed to get tho contract, went boforo
the court and sought to havo tho board
restrained from carrying out lis con
tract with tho Hudson Company, on
tho ground that tho board had uot 1.0-
Conted the lowost bid. In view of the
fact that tho advertisement for bids
reserved to tho board tho right to
roject any and all bids and stated that
tho "lowost responsible" blddor who
had tho dosircd kind of goods would
succeed, tho probato court felt tint
Iola's board of educutlon know wba'
tt was doing and refused to interfete.
This morning a second application,
along tho samo linos wus mado and it
also was turned down. This time the
request that tho board bo restrained
was made in the name of tho county
attorney, on the ground that tho Hud
son company Is a foroign corporation
which has not complied with tho Stato
law in the matter of taking out a li
cense to do business in Kansas. Tlio
probate judge deoldod that this was a
question to be settled by the supreme
court, as was the one about State text
books, and so ho refused to Issue tho
order. Purthermoro he did not want
to bo roaponslblo for interfering with
the arrangements to complete tlio new
building in timo for tho opening of
school. So, up to date, tho arrange
ments stand as originally made, but
it inav easily happen that the inter
ference will succeed in calling tlio eon
tract with the Hudson peoplo into
