Hall's show has come and gone, i s have also the fakirs that follow it and there were plenty of them, the sleekest among whom was a fellow working the electric belt scheme. It is odd indeed, to see people who ought to known better, dig up their hard earned cash for these fellows. The redeeming feature abont the electric belt swindler is,"he seldom gets any one man for more than one dollar, and this is not expensive schooling. A few of the fellows who bite on electric belts will bite again on some other scheme, but not many, and if a fellow can get'.ducated for a dollar he ought not kick himself very hard. The fel low who deals with street fakirs gets left and of course no one pities him. The Chanute Agricultural Fair, P;irk and Driving Association are having a fair at this place this week.
