Phone 193, Home or Mutual Parson Back To Jail. Judge McNeill has" terminated the parole granted to Parson Lavender and the reverend gen tleman is now back in jail, where he ought to be. When Judge McNeill granted the oarole he did it without the investigation he would have giv en the matter if he had not been so busy, but the matter came up durincr the regular session of court, and it was made to appear to the court that this was the parson's first offense, and a lot of other stuff. The judge granted the parole on this showing. Immediately a roar went up from this community and a peti tion several feet long was sent to the court asking that the parole be revoked. A letter to that ef fect was received by the writer the fore part of the week. Judge McNeill says he desires to receive whatever criticism is due, for the reason that he did not investigate the matter in the first place. He says he was mighty busy when the application for a parole was made, and if any criticism is due it should be heaped upon him and nobody else. It was a manly thing in Mc Neill to admit his error, and a more manly thing to correct it. The people will give him credit for doing so. During the parson's, stay in the county hotel, Mr. Shields of the Baxter Mill and Elevator will feel more secure for his property. He says he feels that inasmuch as be has been keeping the par son for several years that the countv should keep him a few months. Thus endeth the chapter for the present. Notice to the Parson. From the following it would seem that the A. H. T. A. is go ing to take a hand in the matter of John Lavender, who is out on parole, when he ought to be in jail. The notice below is a copy of the original, which we under stand was served on the parson last week: To Parson John Lavender of Bax ter Springs, Kansas. Sir: You have been weighed in the balance and found wanting. You are an undesirable citizen. You are a menace and a thorn in the flesh of the neighborhood and community in which you live. Theft, robbery, and other law breaking will not be tolerated in this community, and must be wiped out. Please read Exodus XX Chap ter, 15th verse. Also read Deuteronomy V Chapter, 19th verse. If this should fail to impress you, read jeremian jla.ii, i. We would advise you to move, root and branch from this local-! ity, and at once; do not stand on the order of going, but go. Of the above and foregoing, you will please take due notice, and act accordingly. By Order of A. H. T. A. j Willow Creeek Local No. 67. j May 27th, 1909. way of gathering mining notes and news could be done by other papers, but somehow they just don't do it. The Nsws has mining correspondent who keeps his eyes and ears open, and is a practical mining man himself. But the people who read the jnbws and pay tor it, are en titled to have this mining news, and they shall have it. The Nsws prints more mining news than any other paper in the mining district, not excepting the Joplin papers. The only place the Joplin papers beat the News is in the printing of the report of the ore sales. If you want all the best pi the mining news read the Nsws. Irate Females ftrap.
