Independence, June 29. The Stan
dard Oil company today began ship
ping fuel oil from this city to Oklaho
ma and Texas. The shipments at first
will amount to 3,000 barrels a day and
will be increased to 8,000 barrels a
day. This is an important announce

has already brought several men here
to live who will have charge of the
The oil comes from the Standard's
refinery at Neodesha and is conveyed
to this city through the six-inch pipe
line laid between this city and Neo
desha during the excitement three
years ago. A loading rack has Just
been completed on the Santa Fe,
about half a mile south of the city,
where the oil Is placed in cars and
shipped over the Santa Fe south. The
oil will be used exclusively by the San
ta Fe railroad in its engines on the
southern division, mostly in Texas and
Oklahoma. It is first run through the
refinery at Neodesha and the lighter
oils taken from it, making it a much
better fuel than the raw crude as it
comes from the wells, as the - heat1
units are greater and the oil 13 clean
er to handle.
Heretofore the Santa Fe has secured
its oil in Texas, but the decline in
production in that state has made it
necessary for the company to look to
the Mid-continent for its supply.
THE BUSINESS MEX BIT.
Paid a Traveling Schemer Good Prices
for a Blotter "Advt."
A few days ago a smooth fellow
came along and with a few hours'
labor succeeded in working the busi
ness men of Horton out of J108. This
man's scheme was a hotel blotter,
containing twenty-two advertisements
for which he received on an average
of $5 each. He paid the Commercial
office $20 for printing the Job and rode
out of town with about $80 net for
less than two days' work. Most of the
parties paying $4 each for the blotter
ad are fellows who don't believe in
advertising in the home paper, and it
is really invigorating to see them ta
ken in on the hotel blotter deal. Hor
SOME DRUG STORE SALES.
Cherokee Co. Druggists Sell 900 Gal
lons of Liquor Annually.
Columhus, Juno 29. There is very
little in probate court to throw light
on the liquor tea me. -.The number of
books returned in the past six months
almost exactly equals the previous six
months. Judge Ellis has returns
showing that during his six months
72 books of 100 affidavits have been
used up and returned to his office, in
dicating 7,200 sales of probably a
half pint each, or 450 gallons by
this estimate of amount. The average
price was probably about a dollar a
pint, so that something like $3,500
was derived from the sales. There
ara about a dozen drug stores tn the
county holding permits, so their aver
ago sales have been about $300 each
month for the six months, or $50 a

The game started out with Topeka
in the lead. Topeka got a run across
in the very first inning and Barbour,
who was working for Hutchinson,
could not exactly locate the plate dur
the early stages of the game. In the
first inning Topeka scored a run af
ter Olson had walked and Hurlburt
scored him with a two base hit.
Bnnton, the Louisville Pitcher, Who
Was Knocked Out of the Box by
Topeka scored but once again. In
the sixth inning after Tonneman had
got on first through Casey's error, Hal
la put the ball to the right field fence
for two bases, Tonneman scoring.
In the third, however, Hutchinson
took the lead and were never headed.
In this Inning Casey hit safe and Noyes
went out. Then the locals got next
to Bunton, who was doing the serving
for the visitors. Barbour put the ball
against the left field fence for three
sacks scoring Casey and Wilson se
cured another triple against the right
field fence. This was enough for Bun
ton and Captain Hurlburt summoned
Wright to take the drubbing for the
next two Innings. Wright got along
In good shape until the fifth Inning,
when he filled the bases through a
walk, a hit batsman and an error by
Olson. A long hit by Pettigrew cleaned
the bases and Mr. Wright went Into
retirement. Before the fifth Inning
was over four runs were made off Hal
la Two more came in the seventh and
Umpire Verschure did a great Job
of umpiring and although there were
several close decisions to pass upon, he
gave satisfaction to both sides.

base running stunts.
Jack Rowan, of the Leavenworth
team of last season who was purchased
by Detroit in mid-season is now out
of a Job. He was not considered a
good enough man for Detroit and was
farmed out to the Atlanta, Ga., team
In the Southern league. He did not
suit the management of the Detroit
team and has been cast adrift. He
ought to get back to Leavenworth as
that team needs a lot of new men to
help win games.
