Elsmoro Enterprise: Too many
farmers aro almost panic stricken.
As an instance, ono of our best farm
ers had a fat cow and heifer for salo
and oflcred them for two cents per
pound, trjlng to get dlllercnt stock
shippers to buy them, but they also
seemed to bo afraid to make him an
otter on tho animals. Finally a
couple of men from Elsmoro happened
out his way and bought tho animals
at two cents per pound. No sooner
woro thoy brought to Elsmoro than
ono of tho local shippers concluded
tho cow was a good thing and bought
her at three cents, shipped her to Kan
sas City and got M.oO per cwt. for
hor. Tho heifer was sold to tho local
butcher at f 2. ."50 per cwt. Tho moral
is, don't looso your nerve. Good
stock Is not a "drug on tho maiket"
and Is not going to bo.
Chanuto Is Quarrelsome.
It keeps tho Chanuto papers busy
telling tho exciting details of how tho
city council or tho school board meets
and chews tho rag and tilt but comes
to blows. When the council meets tho
papers glvo it the belt for doing taller
cussing than over hoard, and then
comes tho school board and bleaks
tho record again.
Monday night tho school board
carried oil tho plum. Tho oitise of
dissentslon was tho letting of tho con
tract for plans for tho now school
buildings. It seems llvo bids were 10
colvcd, two from Chanuto and ono
each from Parsons, Topeka and lolu
architects. Tho Topeka man inado
tho lowest bid, but ho wanted, to sup
erintend construction and that Cha
nuto intends a Chanuto man shall do.
Tho bids woro oponod and for somo
voason letters were written several
architects, Including tho Iola hum,
not betraying any secrets but really
resulting In chat! god bids. So the
Chanuto architects folt uggrlovod und
tholr friends on tho board aroso and
smoto at will. A lovely row ensued
but the contruct was given to Mr.
Navo, tho Iola architect.

A plan of the Missouri Paclllc rail

plato ono of tho biggest Industries of
this part of tho country was an
nounced In this city today by Hall
road Contractor H H. Klloy, who Is
now on tho construction of tho Mis
souri Paclllc out-ou ut Hooinlllo, and
who was hero looking for men to work
on tho Hoonville extension. Tho plan
Is to construct a lino of road through
tho heart of the Arkansas mineral
lands to Wobb City. Mo., whom It
will connect with the Missouri P.icllle,
and come up over tho Fort Seott A
Southern. Tho Idea Is to havo the
only lino of railroad directly from the
l Immense mineral llelds of Arkansus to
.the Iola smelters. Mr. Hiloj had I,
chart .shotting tho roulu of this line
und says tho large forco of men now
employed at Iloonvlllo will go onto
the Arkansas lino Immediately upon
tho completion of the Iloonvlllo cut-off
and thut the now roud must be com
pleted by u j oar from next September
I It will be noticed that this lino would
pass not only through tho Arkansas
mineral Holds, but also througn the
Joplln und Galena districts and would
mako tho largest ore shipping Hue in
country. Another plan for the future
Is the extension of the roiul smi.i,
from lliitesvllle to Memphis on u line
that would give the Paclllc a ronti lo
