Tho HrXiiSTHR has already men tioned tho coming report of Stato Labor Commissioner W. L. A. John son. Tho Topeka Capital says it is ncarlng completion and it is sure to :ull wider attention to the Importaneo of Iola us a manufacturing point. In roviowlng tho report tho Capital say?: Tho oil and gas fields of Kansas cover about H.jO square miles and com prlso Bourbon, Linn, Allen, Neosho, Wilson, Elk, Montgomery and Chau tauqua countlos. More than 100 noils 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 cars, would make a train seventy-two miles long. "Tho six smelters In tho district which have reportod to this olllco, employed 1,123 men during 180!) and last yoar they furnished employment to 1,888. Tho value of tho raw tnai tnr'.al produced by thoso plants for 3809 was $08,200 and for l'JOO It amounted to $151,200. Tho valuo of the manufactured product 09 for 18 amounted to $2,87DI3,'32 and for, 1000 to 33,411,712. "TheJ valuo of tho manufactured jroducts of tho brick plants of the district reporting was $100,000 for the year 1009 and $103,000 for 1000. Notice.

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. And Old Man is Vile. 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. fortune .Smiles on These. Now that tho strain is over and all tho returns in it is interesting to look over tho list of those Iola people whoso hopos were fulfilled, on whom Fortune dolgned to cast her llcklo smile. Thero Is nothing In tho uppoar ancn of tho prlzo winners to show why tho jado smiled on them but it is better to bo born lucky than handsome any day. That Is what tho losers aro say ing. Tho complete list of Iola winners of Kiowa farms shows that Iola got her s uire and then some-. It was esti mated that about eight farms would be her proper sharo, but nearly twlco that many foil this way. As near as tho IluaiSTilit can figure, tho following men won: C. A. Savage, J. II.

While it was accompa nied by rather;' an exciting electrical display thero was llttlo wind. and so far as known no damage was done. Tho rain was a steady downpour and lasted several hours and tho dry earth ' drank it in greedily. In addition to tho great benefit to tho crops, to past ure and to hot humanity, roports from sovcral sections say tho rain made water In tho sto;k ponds, which will' relievo stockmen of tho necosslty of hauling water at grout expense and loss of time.

Somehow tho honor of being a member of tho city council don't hold people In town as It should. Whon thoy got ready to go they pull out without tho least coupunctlon and leave a yawning abyss In the ranks of tho dads. Tho latest withdrawal is W. F. Crelghton, cottncllmun from tho fourth ward. So far as Is known ho has not tendered his resignation, but tho KnotSTKli understands that ho has located In tho now country. This means that ho will resign and so thero will bo an opening for somo pat riot who Is willing to step into tho harness and put Into practlco somo of tho benollcent reforms which ho Is now busily enguged In advocating on tho street. Thero aro scores of men In tho ward who can glvo tho council pointers on running tho city, and somo of thoso should volunteer. Plenty of Touchers Here. Thero seems to bo an Impression away from Allen county that there Is a need of more teachers in this county. Miss Olmstead says hulf a do?en from other states attended tho Normal here and sho Is dally approached by per sons from awny who suy thoy under stand there are not enough teachers hero to caro for all tho schools. As a matter of fact there are moro than enough homo teachers to supply tho demand and whilo Miss Olmstead hold's down her position she says sho Intends to patronize homo Industry, n sentiment which will bo generally applauded over tho county.

In 1000, so tho papers on lllo say, ho raised crops worth S3,000 and so far In 1001 ho has raised $3,000 worth of crops. Tho rent terms called for a third grain rent, and so tho company wants $1,000 for each year.

Lieut. Col. Hugh h. Scott, of the United States volunteers, formerly captain of the Seventh cavalry, is known in tho army as an oillcer who probably knows more about Indian sign language than nny other living man. At one time Col. Scott made a standing otter of $1 to any redskin who could show him a sign used by any tribe which ho did not know. The colonel Is also peculiarly absent minded, n fact which was emphasized at his marriage a few isars ago. As he stood at the altar with his bride, the olllclating clergyman asked him the iiHiml .question as to taking the woman beside hlm to bo his wife. Tho colonel placed two lingers upon Ills left eyebrow. After nn embar rassing pause the clergyman repent ed the question, and again the two fingers went solemnly to tho left eyebrow. It was not until tho bent man poked the bridegroom in tlrti ribs that ho camo back to eartli and articulated "Yes," N. Y.
