OFFICIAL PAl'RltlOK ALLKX COUNTY Fliio Gusher Opened up on tho Hub- bnnl Farm Three Miles South of the City of loin. Again and again lias tho outllno of tho Allen countj gas flolil been chang ed,, each tlmo tho boundary being .pushed farther and farther away. At llrst It seemed to boconccntrated about tho south-cast eornor of Iola and then it was pushed farther and farther, and Is still bolng pushed south, tho north-east line having been establish ed between Lallarpo and Monui. Saturday Fred llorton llnlshed up a well on the Hubbard eighty, which lies just ono and a half miles east of Iola and then thrco ocn mllos south. It is a great big, howling, rip-roaring well, uceordlng to reports, .one of tho big gest in tho Held, and Gcorgo A. Bow lus, Gcorgo A. Frj and Fred Horton, who own tho lease and tho well, aro treading about on clouds today. Thoy don't know what they will do with tho woll as jet. And another man also Is a "way up." He Is Mr. Xoblo, tho gentleman who quietly worked uroundjtown until ho had bought tho .'120 acre tract right north 'of Gas City and has secured Icubcs on 1000 acres of land down in Salem township. "My theory is veri lled," ho said said to a ropoiter this morning "I nover thought for a mom ent that jour pres'suro could keop up tiB It has except becauso tlioro was a larger Hold and the now gas well goes to proo it. I think gas will be found all ovor that south territory and my 1000 actus is ju-,t oor the 4fonce. I will havo tho drilllngmaehinerj moved at oncoaud a well stinted." "And by thowaj jouug man, now is tho time for jou people to toot jour horn and let the world know what is happening. There aro Imilllons of eastern monoy icady and willing to come here tho minuto you demonstrate that you hiuo a big Held." And it is interesting in this con flection to pass along a gentlo sus picion which lias been hold for somo timo bj sovoral peoplo that Mr. Noblo is tho roprosontutHo of Frank Iiucke fellor who has just spent half a million dollars in zinc land in tho .Toplin dis trict and is said to nntpinfiluto erect ing a smelter. l.oio would he be more li! oly to look: wheio would ho wtr.it certain iufoimalion and develop ed land boforo declaring himsoll? Mr. Xoblo will istand com luted until ho pioes hlmslf innocent. Law mid Order Union Meeting. Tho second annual meeting of tho Countj Union was hold at the Frosbj terian church Februarj (1. Tho roport of oll'coriand committees 'ndicatc that not all that olther the friends of tho cause nor the organiza tion Itsolf had hoped for, had been accomplished, but that much had been dono that cannot be estimated by tho number of law bicakers convicted nor by tho joints and gambling dens thnt aro still unmolested. Tho contrast of the conditions as they aio today with what might reason ably bo imagined in tho county, and especially in Iola, if thtee jears ago tho peoplo had not taken a stand against tho wuvo of infamous law breakers that threatened us ( and still do business) was shown to. bo vorj encouraging. Sumo fifty convictions havo followed tho three jours woik, but nearly two-thitds of tho casos brought during tho last jour hao boon either dismissed or compromised by tho olllcers of tho law. Bj u huge voto Dr. Hendricks was ro-olected to tlio piosidcncy ho has so ellicicntlj hold from tho beginning, and astiong executive committee was chosen for futuro work. Tho Union unanimously urges tho passugo of Houso bill Xo. 171 and Sonato bills Xo. 210, 220, and 221 now pending in our legislating and thnt aro hi tho interests i law enforce ment. Resolutions wore passed that inged every friend of tho Law and Order Loaguo to uso their best endeavors to Uphold tho enforcement of the law and especially tho prohibition law that is so ilagrantly Jvlolated and commend tho pure and high purpose and admire tho personal courago of Mrs. Xatlon and sincerely hopotho llnal result of her extraordinury,means may awaken all good peoplo to tho necessity of suppressing tho rum powers and greatly regrets that such violent means should seem to bo necessary, because of tho criminal uogllgenco of public ollicors. Hor course should arouso all good :ltl?ons to bestir thomsolvcs to secure the enforcement of tho law. The Ex ecutive commlttco has kept In touch with tho work constantly and in har mony with tho Stato Union and tho W. C. T. U. andwohopo that tho groat cause will yet vanquish our common onemy in Kansas. Tho recent action of tho Legislature should encourngo tho faint heart and tho fact that but one jury in threo years has failed to rentier a vcrtiict or conviction or acquittal should not bo forgotten as conclusions that our juries aro men of sterling character and lender tholr verdicts on evidence that cannot bo disputed. Sr 'ni.TAUY Money liaised, Work to l'loeeed. Tho HixiiSTnu noted a llttlo previ ously tho fact that a number of tho business men of tho city had risen nobly to tho requirements and had piaccti tnoir names in tlio propor places on stamped paper to insuro tho payment to Mr. C. V. Crouch of $o,- 000 to help ulong tlio construction of tho olectrlo streot railway bctweon Iola and Lallarpo. At tlio tune tho article appeared tlio matter was under discussion but had noo been settled, but now it is all over and tlio alTair is ended. Inasmuch as tho raising of this amount of monoy was an indlsponsl blo condition, and without which the road that is to bo so great a factor in tlio continued prosperity and upbuild ing of Iola could not, or at leastwould not nt this timo liavobeenundertaken on, it does not sec'm out of place to record hero tho names of tho public spirited cltlcns who pledged tlio re quired sum, It Is a short list and is as follows: Geo. A. Bowlus and Mrs. Simpson 1,000 Xorthrups 1,000 A. W. Heck SOO .T. A. Robinson COO A.L. Taylor 500 II. L. Henderson ... .- COO W.J. Evans COO Fred Horton 200 Chas F. Scott 200 J. S. Turner 100 Mr. Crouch is very much ploased with tho way things aro moving and has not mot with a single set-back so far. Ho has decided' that tho charter issued to the old Iola Rapid Transit Company somo j-ars ago is no good and will securo another ono from To peka. This dono ho intends going cast at once to purcliaso tho track ma terial, tho motors and tho cars and ' other apparatus for his line, with the Intention of beginning work as soon as possible. Told on Captain Stocr. Tlio Topcka Capital of Tuesday told this story of T. S. Stover of Iola: "Captain Tim Stover, sergeant-at-arms of tlio House, bids fair to out class Mrs. Carrio Xation, of joint smashing fume, as a roformer. Stov er doos not like cigar smoke and early in tho session Induced tno commlttco on rulos lo niako a rulo prohibiting bmoking in tho IIouso. Ho then pro ceeded to onforco it strictly, calling down members nnd outsiders allko. "Sundaj ho was In tho Kansas City union depot waiting for a train when ho saw a man approaching I mi suck ing abig black clgarand tilling clouds of smoko above his head with evident onjojment. Stover mado a msh for liliu and tapped him on tho Miouldcr. "Look heic." ho said "don't jou know that smoking is prohibited in tlio IIouso?" Tho man guo him an astonished state, thinking lio had tun actoss a Mrs. Xatlon in masculino form, and ojaculatcd in free.lng tones', "Sir." This woke up Captain Stover and ho began ito apologio , in a coufused manner and explained to tho man that ho thought ho was in tho Kansas Houso of Representatives. This morning Captain Stover told a friend of tlio incident on tlio promise ho would not let it out. "Forco of habit is an awful thing at times," ho said." All Epidemic, of (iood Hoincrt. Time was when Iola peoplo lived in tho houso becauso tho weather was uneoiii fortablo outside. When tho "gentlo but substantial growth" canio upon this community thoy indus triously engaged in making hay and saving It, but cacli had a socret plan of getting a roll and llcolng with it. Today there is a cliango and Iola peo plo no longer feel tlio vaguest doubt tlio town is ccituin to grow larger and better und thoy aro gottlng ready to locato for tho rest of their days. This is shown by plans for liandsomo, sub stantial homes which aro being made.

Having been apointedby the Socletj to submit a paper on tho subject "is Strawberry culture profitable in Al len county," tho writer In the very be ginning of this nrticlo desires to state that ho Is Impolled by no mercenary motive, in tho premises for lie has no plants to soil olther ns principal or agent, but Ills solo object is to Induce a fow persons, not everybody, to plant a few acros.not awholo farm, in straw berries and then give them tho pioper attention. To discuss this question intelligent ly und arrive at a practical conclusion It will bo necessary for us to ascertain two slmplo facts. First, to determine whether tlio soil and climato aro hero adapted to tlio successful growtli oftho strawberry, nnd secondly whether tho marketdemands more fruit, On tho first proposition it is only necessary to say that It Is an iiicon trovertablo fact that almost anywhere in Allen countj under favorablo cir cumstances, tho strawberry grows to perfection. Mothlnks someono nsks, What aro favorablo circumstances,? The nnswer would undoubtedly bo a gentle undulating piece of ground, woll drained, naturally fortilG or mado so bj applying plenty of flno manure, and thorough cultivation. Of course it is ulways inferred that good varie ties, with all that tho word food indi cates, havo been planted. Right heio If a llttlo digression Is permissible, tho writer will say that when ho was in the business ho was requested by a grower to inspect his strawberry Hold. On ex amination a beautiful, woll cultivated berry Hold was found, but it grow not a single crate of fruit. The trouble was probably that tno owner, had not been able to glvo a day once a month to attend a Horti cultural meeting where ho mielit havn ascertained that tlioro exists in tlio strawberry family pistillate and stam- oiiuto varieties and ho had mado the fatal mistaken! planting tho ono with out tho other to fructify or fertilize it, and make it bear fruit. Thus ho lost histlme, lost his monej and lost his temper. Fiom tho marked suceoss which growers oi .nerries, in a small waj, all oer Allen county have met with, wo' uro constrained to say that tho soli 'and climato aro sultablo for tho most successful growth of tho strawberry. Wo believe and voice tlio sentiment of tho clt(7ons of Iola when wo say tlio market demands moro homo grown berries, because thousands of boxes of foreign berriesuronnnuallj-shipped in and, though not nearly so flno as our homo grown berries, llnd a ready market at remunerative prices. Referring to tho small tuerugo of strawberries in Allen county, wo wish to stato that at thomeetingof tho Stato Horticultural Society in Decembor last, in Topeku it was reported that this countj had less acres of straw berries than any other county in tho Second Congressional District, onlj six acres having been reported in tlio county. It is belioed that Iola can furnish a good pajiug m.uket for at least ton tinios as many berries as arc offered hero of tho home grown pro duet. All tho glowers, so far as wo hao had an oppoitunlty to Interview them on tho subject, agreo that the buslnoss is fairly profitable in Allen county. As to tho yield much depends upon tho varieties and tho mode of cultiva tion. A roport from tho last meeting of tho Southwest Iowa Association tolls of ono man who sold fiom an aero and a half of strawberries an u erago of twenty dollars worth of fruit por day for four weeks. Another picked ono hundred quarts from a square rod of ground, and ten thousand quarts from a single acio. A roport from ono grower in Allen county recently recolved, stated that ho rcalicd threo hundred dollars from ono aero.

On tho second question a paper was presented and read by Rev. D. H. Shuey, which speaks for itself and is herewith presented for publication. On tho third question tlio writer of this submitted and road our article which, on order of tho society, is also presented for publication. Tlieso papers and tho subjects as woll as other subjects woro discussed, and uicthinks many fruit and cge tablo raisers might havo secured volu ablo information by being piosent and hearing and patticlpatlng therein. For Instance, the sphis, a genius of insects belonging to tho order of Ilcm iptera, which aro cry iiumeioits and inlllct great injury on plants and vines, was discussed and tlio most slmplo and inexpensho remedy for tho subjugation or tho llttlo intruder, as used bj ono of our churter members who has missed but few meetings in the sovontcen joars of our oxistenco us a society, was given. It is simply concentrated ljo and water, and It would doubtless pay anjone growing oven a few melons, grapes, etc , to hao been thoic to learn tlio proper proportions of tlio mixture, for It is a fact that .success depends upon knowing how it is dono and then do ing it at tlio right timo and In tho right way. Other subjects were dis cussed, notably among which was " by doos canned fruit spoil in tlio can ?" The causo and some remedies wero ghen, hut for fear ofgiowing tedious wo will close the announce ment that the next meeting will be held in tho G. A.
