Into Pit of Hot Ore Ih Un
conscious anil May Die.
Peoplo who nro familiar with tho
smelling plants will ugroo that few
things could bo moro horrtblo than to
fall Into a big bin of hot zinc ore, but
that is what happened to William
Coonrad, an employee of tho Lanyou
Zinc Company's Lanyonvlllo plant.
Tho accident happened Saturday night
and tho unfortunate man Is stilt 1111
uonsclousand scorns llkoly to dlo from
his Injuries.
Coonrad has not been nble to tell
anything about tho accident but it
seems that ho went up on top of tho
pit in which thu new oro from tho
mines Is heated to drivo on" tho mols
turo. Ho er.rrlcd no lantern and in
tho darkness abovo tho pit stopped
over tho brick wall and foil down In
Bido. Arms and legs sunk deep In tho
hot ore, which Is at a temperature to
blister ono's tlosh, md in tho fall his
hoad mustlhavo struck the sldu wall,
stunning him. In tho darkness, aro
nlzcd by his pain, ho stumbled about
blindly and In some way made his
escape from tho llcry pit. Ho was
found by his fellow workmen, waudcr
Ing about outside tho works, wholly
oblivious to bis surroundings, hope
lessly out of his head.
Ho was taken homo and Dr. Cox at
tended him. In addition to sovero
burns on arms and legs ho sulTcrcd
concussion of tho brain from tho strik
ing tho wall. Ho knows nobody, olio
oyo stares wildly and tho other droops
shut. A scar on his head and tho
llowing of blood from his right ear In
dicate whero his head struck tho wall.
All Is bolng dono for him that tho sur
geon's art kn'.iws, but ho has not re
giinol consciousness and has never
recognized his wife. Ho Is a woll
built man of about IS.I years and popu
lar with his fellows.
Tho burns would sot ono wild If
conscious of them hut Coonrad lies
on tho bed totally oblivious to any
pain. In fact ho tears tho bandages
from tho burns unless watched and
takes no notice of what transpires
about him, recognizing no ono. His
brain seems wholly paralyzed and
food has to ho forced down his throat
as ho seems to have forgotten how to
swallow. Tho doctor expresses but
slight hopo of his recovery.

Increase at Mhtourf I'acillc.
A great many people in the neigh
borhood of tho Missouri Pacific switch
ingyard who wero kept awako Monday
nleht by the whistling und pulling of
an engine, will bo glad to learn that
they will have to becomo accustomed
to It for It i a permanent thing. The
increase in the business of tho Mis
souri I'acillc has niado It necessary
for a night crew to be put on. A night
crow has been needed for a long time
but It takes a long tlmo to make tho
higher powers reallzo It. Tho day
crew has been working over time for
thrco months and tho rolief will cotno
as a blessing to them.
Chas. L. Woodcock, who has been
head brakeman under Tom Long will
have chargo of tho crow which came
over from Wichita last evening. They
spent most of tho night getting ac
quainted with tho yards but will soon
settlo down to work and customers of
tho road will be given better service
than in tho past.
Tho Increase of business at tho Mo.
I'acitlu Is a matter of pride to all and
it Is to bo hoped that It will not be
long until we get that round house and

has promised.
Would Delay Court Mouse Levy.
The KnuiSTKii is in receipt of the
following --ommunlcutlon from Mr. L.
1$. Pearson, the woll-known resident
of tho south part of the county:
"Editor liuuiSTEu: I would llko to
inakd this suggestion about tho tax
levy for tho new court houso, which Is
that the commissioners do not mako
tho lovy this year, 'the conditions lntho
county bolng such that tho 15,000 that
tho lovy will raise would he much bet
tor In tho hands of those who will have
to pay It than lying in the banks. In
talking with tho peoplo down heio
thoro is a universal sentiment favor
ing this idoa when tho question is put
to them. All say do not mako It this
year. Thoro does not seom to bo any
thing In tho law that requires It to bo
made this year."
Mr. Pearsons goes on to state that
ho thinks this sentiment Is general and
that u delay of ono year In making tl o
lovy would go far toward removing
whut llttlo bad fooling may remain
from tho election. Ho cites his own
llnuncos as simply representative of
tho caso of most of his neighbors and
says ho never had a year slnco ho has
boon on tho farm whon tho returns will
bo so small. Out of 100 acres of corn

bushels of corn, Tho Kixjistuu sub
mits Mr, Pearson's suggestion to tho

and the men of the county who have
Its Interests at hoart and it will un

The moagro news In Monday's ItiXJ-
lSTi:u, giving tho names of tho first
four lucky ones, brought disappoint
ment for surely nn Iola man should
bavo been in itho bunch. Hut tho
Tuesday papers brought a full roport
of thoso who won in tho first 1,000
names and a careful scanning of the
list soon rovcaled tho name of C. A.
Mr. Savago is a lawyer who has
lived In Iola several years and is a
member oftho llrmof Ewlng& Savage.
Ho went to tho now country with a
party of friends, largely for an outing
and after registering made a trip to
tho Wichita mountains and traveled
over tho country to bo divided up. lie
is tliereforo in a good position to
make a wlso selection. Ho is in tho
Lawton district and will bavo a choice
somowhere between thel2()th and 250th,
which insures a good I GO acres. It
means that C. A. Savage Is probably
worth today from$2,000to $0,000 moro
than ho was yoslerduy, and this will
bo wolcomo to him and good news to
his friends.
And thero was joy In town over tho
news that SamO'Hara, of Mo ran, will
get a choice somo whero between the
251st and tho It'oth In the Kl Keno
district. Sam was an industrious
young carpenter, sturdy and strong.
Ho joined tho 20th Kansas, went to
the Philippines and fought well, a
good soldier as all tho boys agree
Ho came homo broken In health and
could no longer work at his trado and
gradually grow ucakcruntll his friends
feared ho would die. Ho had not the
moans to travel and get tho treatment
ho needed until Dually a hurry-up
pension camo to him. This enabled
him to properly treat himself and he
did greatly to tho Ix-wllt of his health.
And now ho has drawn a good claim
in tho territory and can sell It or farm
Another man, Loster A. Hackara,
of Iola, Is credited with a ticket lu the
Lawton district on the first day's
drawing between the numlers .170 and
500. Nobody hero seems to know him
and he must he a newctmier.
Tuesday was a good day for tho
Iola men. W. H. McCullough, and
John Klinberllng won out In tho Kl
lleno district nnd Krastus Hall drew
down In tho Lawton district. Tho di
rectory does not mention Klmberling,
but McCullough is ono of tho proprie
tors of tho north sido second hand
store. Krastus Hall Is an old soldier
and everybody knows him and shares
with him tho joy of proprietorship of
a farm.
The dispatches also mention that
Oscar Dragoo, of Wlso, this county,
won a homo In tho Kllteno district.
CIllT D. Scott, formerly of this placo
but now of Kansas City, is credited
with a farm in tho Lawton district.
S. K. Toms, of 221 south Tennosseo
street, Hricktown, also gathered in a
homestead In Tuesday's drawing.
A Mr. Clendonnlng, of Iola, was
another lucky man. He, liko soveral
others are doubtless comparative
strangers In Iola, who barely got lo
cated hero nnd then took a try In tho
new country.

As noted somo days ago In tho
HraiSTEH thoro has been a prospect
for some tlmo that tho Iola Klectrlc
Hallway and tho Ft. Scott, Iola &
Western would coiuo together In a
clash over tho light of way. Tne ox-
pected hnppened Monday when
the latter road tiled a petition In dis
trict court asking for a permanent in
junction restraining tho electric road
from usinR Third Street In Lan
yonvlllo for Itstrncks.
A Hi-xilsTKit reporter saw Judgo J.
P. Thompson, nttornoy for tho olec
trlc, and asked him about tho Injunc
tion. He said ho didn't sco just whero
tho other road could mako a case. It
based Its claim on tho fact that somo
days ago It tiled a plat showing whero
It expected to pass through Lanyon
vlllo and the alleged fact that tho elec
tric had not compiled with this re
quirement of tho law. Mr. Thompson
says tho electric has dono this and ho
thinks his road will have notroublo In
co lug ahead as It Is now doing and
laying its track and maintaining pos
session of tho street in question.

II' Dreams ('nine True.
Any time a day passes without the
Ft. Scott paH.'rs haviiigdreams about
Iola It is IwciiiHO tho reporters didn't
sleep soundly enough to dream. That
sleepy old burg Is as anxious to mate
with lusty young Iola as a decrepit
old snort with somo buxom young lass.
Now had you ever lieurd anything
about this from the Ft. Scott Monitor:
It Is learned from a souroo that Is
supposed to be reliable that the man
Crouch who Is building the electric
street railway lino from Iola to La
Harpo Is contemplating connecting
with this- city at some future date and
making it an Inter-urban Hue. This
information was obtained from a Foit
Scott man who was in Iola a few days
ago on business with Mr. Crouch.
Tho movement is being talked of In
Iola, but as yet tho schemo has not
reached an advanced stage.
Mr. Crouch has plenty of monoy at
his beck and call. Ho is putting in a
street railway at Iola and Is to be In
operation soon. It is being financier
ed by some eastern capitalist who It Is
understood has formed a syndicate.
Tho line is now being extended to La
Harpe and tho work will bo completed
In a short time.
It Is believed that an Inter-urban
lino of the kind contemplated will be a
paying Investment. Travel between
Fort Scott and Iola is frequent. The
lino could take In all tho little gas and
smolter towns between Iola and La
Harpo, as Is now tho Intention, und In
the event that the promoters decide to
build to this city it could go througn
Moran, Hronsou and Uniontown and
all other intermediate points.
At present thero is but one train
each way botwecn hero and tho gas
city and iutor-urban lino would bo a
most doslrablo property. It would
mako it convenient for tho wholesale
dealers In Fort Scott who carry on a
largo volurao of business with tho Iola
and Lallarpe merchants.
A couplo of years ago there was
somo talk about connecting tle street
railway lino of Fort Scott and Nev
ada, Mr. Quigley of tho Nevada Hall
way system was enthusiastic over this
proposition but it nover terminated in
anything definite. It if twenty miles
to Nevada and thlrty-llvo to Iola and
It would not bo ut all impractical to
connect all theso cltios with an inter
urban lino of railway.
