Re publican. The editor hereof has traded his dwelling in Chanute for the twenty acre farm just west of the city limits known as the Beatty property. We shall remove to said suburban home about the first of November.

The Chanute papers seem to think that gas and oil 6hould both be found at and near that city of proper efforts were made. Two or three wells have been drilled there and proved to be dry holes, but if they should keep dig ging a paying well might be found after awhile. The oil and gas sand seems to be all on top at Chanute. numboldtUuIon. Certainly, Brother McElroy, we think gas or oil, or both should be found near Chanute. With gas at Cherryvale, Thayer, Neodesha, Benedict, Humboldt and Iola, and oil at most of these towns, and Chanute almost a line between them, It is odd if oil or gas or both can not be found here. As it has become such a fad to pass 'Curfew" ordinances in regard to the boys finding themselves at home at certain hours, we have a new kind of a Curfew law to spring on the dear for bearing people. This country needs a Curfew law to regulate the gadding trips of women. Nearly every woman is at home at the breakfast hour, but it is a rare one who Is there to get dinner and supper. We contend that there should be a Curfew law passed to the end that all housewives be home at 11 a. m. and 5 p. m. Every town and village should have a large bell to be rung at these hours to warn the women to hie themselves homeward, ! if tliey are not already there. Such a law would bring more happiness, more relief and more substantial aid than all your old free coinage. Florence Bulletin. Homicide in Chanute. On last Saturday morning about 3 o'clock, Will Berry a negro, while on a druken spree, went to the Santa Fe depot and began adisturbance. There .were some ladies there waiting ior the train which was late. They com nlained to the Santa Fe employes and the latter put Berry out of the depot.

While the taking of a human life has cast a great gloom over our city, no one seems to be surprised and each one seems to say "I told you so." Ihe facts arc.there are a number of people about Chanute who seem to have no fixid emnlovmentithey loaf around all day and at night make life miserable for lawabiding citizens.
