Since it hat beta well-establlehed that the solva tion of hunger Is Induced by a certain type of tonic and peristaltic contrac tions of the empty or nearly empty stomach, it must be assumed either that these contraction are abolished at fast proceeds or that the sensa tion are decidedly modified.

The man who vnnts to take a gam ble on getting the water out, will probably mako some easy money at he expects to put in a couple of electric pumps, turn on the "juice" and not turn Jt off until the water is out, the way the big fellows do it . The men who have pumped in the fight , have done splendidly with the equipment they havo had but about the time the water would get to where it looked like it would be beaten, a pump would go out of commission or a boiler would have to be repaired or cleaned and the work had to be done over again. There is no doubt that the Quapaw water can be beaten and beating ths water will make Quapaw and that district which lies about it a real min ing field. There Js, nothing to lose if the fellow does not beat it so it looks like a cinch that something is going to be done in that neck o'woods. ALAMO COMPANY , STARTS SHAFT ON LEASE AT QUAPAW The Alamo Lead and Zinc Company began Monday to sink a shaft on a lease about three miles south of Bax ter Springs, adjoining the Greenback. F. A. Hayden of Quapaw is in charge of the Alamo operations. The lease has been pretty thor oughly drilled but while the cuttings did not show a high mineralization it was impossible to get the best on ac count of the water course encountered. . It is the. belief of Ir. Hayden and the company, officials that the same rich run of ore that extends from the north end of Hoekerville to the Long Hunt mine north of Quapaw, passes through the Alamo lease and it hvon that theory that the shaft is sunk. LADD MINING CO. BEGINS SINKING NORTH OF QUAPAW The Ladd Mining Company, a Fay- etteville, Ark., organization, has be gun sinking their second shaft three miles south of Baxter Springs, near the St Louis shaft on the Martin Weiss land which has proven such a rich proposition. .

The Joplin Globe, the leading Dem ocratic paper in Southwestern Mis souri; Southeastern Kansas and Northeastern Oklahoma, 1n . its issue of September 6th contained the fol lowing important editorial: "Are They Justified in Being Sus picious" "Suspicious people are not particu larly popular, but there are times when suspicions seem justified. "After a week or two of compara tive strength in the spelter market at New York, producers of zinc ore in this district were looking for possibly a raise of $2.60 a ton in ore prices Inst week, or, at the worst, the con tinuation of the prices in existence during the previous week. To their surprise, the price of ore was cut $2.50 a ton, this being due, it was said, to the fact that the spelter market at Now York had suddenly become "de moralized." Quotations on spelter by the New York Metal Exchange Thurs day afternoon indeed did show a de cided lowering in prices, and the ex tremely widespread of. 8 to 9 cents was reported. But the mysterious, not to say suspicious circumstancts connected with this Quotation was that trade papers published in Nw York on that day reported no sales of spelter below 9 cents. "Producers would like to know how this quotation happened -to be made. UlKf UrC UUb IJUt.XhlUJMIIg till.' ICIUUil' itv of the Associated Press in report' ing- the Metal Exchange figure, but they are wondering how such a quota tion could have been made ny tne ex change if no sales of spelter were made on that day below 9 cents. And they are wondering particularly how it "happened" that the market sua. denly became "demoralized"' on the day before the market for zinc ore wns to be made in this district The fact that the "demoralization" turned out to be nothing of the sort adds to the significance of its coming at tne particular time it did. "Producers are wondering if they havo any right to be suspicious, and, if they do nave such a right what tbey should do about it Slashing the ore market S2.50 a ton is a pretty serious proposition when the output of this entire great zinc producing ais trict is considered." When a Democrat paper with the standing of The Globe comes out with a leading editorial calling the conduct of the Smelter Trust "suspicious," in thin manner, it simply charges that which every small operator and miner knows to be true, that is that such trust is being permitted to manipulate the zinc market unhindered and un hampered, not withstanding war times, and that such trust should be curbed and controlled the same as some of the other industries arc, and especially in view of the fact, pointed out by The Globe, that they are guilty of bold robbery. Such conduct should not be permitted to be intruded up on the public. Committee after com mittee has gone to Washington in an effort to secure some relief from the situation but none comes.The small op erators as well as every zinc miner in the district knows too well the truth fulness of The Globe's statement be cause have they not had it brought home to themFelvos and their families by being required to pay from 23 to 60 per cent more for all the necessi ties of life and yet the very article upon which they most depend for a livelihood, which means their earnings and wages, has been constantly re duced in price until the cost of pro duction exceeds the market price. And do they not also know that these man ipulations have caused many mills and mines to be shut down? Is it any wonder that the operators that are not allied with the trust and zinc min ers, who are also aloof from that powerful concern, are inquiring why there is not more regulation touching this vitally important industry, not onlv vital to this district but to the war and the nation as well as her brave sons. Of course the small op erator and the zinc miners are help- less. Do the voters in this district', need more to make them realize their duty at the polls November the 5th?
