Tho oil and gas fields of Kansas

have been drilled in this district, the
average depth of which is 1)00 feet.
Tho average output ranges from two
to twelve million feet of fas every
twenty-four hours. Mr. Johnson, In
his report, says:
"Tho great valuo of natural gas as
a fuel in manufacturing has become n
matter of groat concern to our coal
producing counties. 'A comparison
of hoat units In tho two articles of
fuol shows that twenty thousand cubic
fcot of gas equals in heat one ton of
ooal. It is estimated that 100 or more
manufacturing concerns in Allen
'"unty aro using gat for fuel. Che.in
ical anulysls of tho Kansas gas shows
it to bo superior In quality to the gas
found In eastorn states. Tho Iola
Portland cement plant usos gas for
fuel. Tho plant manufactures 3,000
barrels of cement a duy and employes
400 men. The output for a yoar Is
3,093,000 barrols, which if loaded Into

Tho Fort Scott. Iola St Western
railroad seems not yet to have fixed
definitely upon what route It will se
lect for its right-of-way through Iola.
After many difficulties tho road was
granted a right-of-way by tho council
along tho north sldo of tho Missouri
Pacific. That sweet girl got her buck
up and built a wondorous bustlo whero
tho stock yards used to be, so the new
road would havo to get clear to tho
north end of town to go around that
hump. Now tho now road's agents
aro Interviewing resldonts along
Douglas street, inquiring tho selling
prlco of their property and the figuro
at which they estlmuto tho damages
they would sustain by the road's
passing along that street. In view of
tho old-tltno way In which towns fell
over themselves to glvo right-of-way
to railroads this uow road is having
the hardest timo any Kansas ralhoiiil
over had. It is spending its money in
good faith now In construction and it
is to bo hoped no more- stumbling
blocks will impede its successful con
struction and operation.

Tho cement plant Is a nice prospect,
good to look upon, and tho only blem
ish Is the olllco gang. Not that they
are not as good as most men, but men
aro mean. When ono of tho olllco
gang falls into the tolls thoy grind
moro industriously on him than tho
machinery grinds clinker. Mr. Ward
Is tho latest amusement. Ward, It
seems, was informed in a letter from
a lady friend that ha was "80" so far
as sho was concerned. She put it
daintily, on scented paper, not in tho
remotest way hinting at angor. Ho
was 80, that was all, and shelsn't fotid
of figures. So far all was well. But
that note fell into the hutids of tl.o
gang and they havo been riding Ward
a paco that kills. Hi has contracted
with a local factory to keep the gang
In cigars for a month and yet thoy do
not seem satisfied. Tho moral Is
obvious: When you join tho cement
company's olllco force eschew girls.
Ask any of tho gang, they hao all
been hounded, and they will agree.

Now that tho strain is over and all

Fortune dolgned to cast her llcklo

Tho rain was a steady downpour and
