THE CHANUTE TIMES.
A. H. Turner, Ed. A Prop. CHANUTE : : - "KANS. m. .. .. i A calendar givesN no trustworthy cine to weather. No sunstrokes liavo thus far been reported this spring. Life is getting to be Just one state convention alter another. Distinctly, the opening of the base ball season was not a frost. Now the umpire in his turn becomes the object of oratorical attack. Nobody will care how much the fly la kicked arouni. this summer. Tou do not hear band musicians objecting seriously to political cam paigns. A large spot has been discovered on Vhe sun. Draw your own political deductions. When an editor becomes gloomy he rises to predict the revival of the boopsklrt. Our notion of an easy Job is to persuade a man to become a candi date for office. The Incubator craze Is leading to numerous fires. This will not, how ever, check the craze. New York, the worst crowded me tropolis In the world, always has room for easy mark visitors. The world certainly do move. It has been lo! these many years since we read a folding bed joke. Much more readily do some men pay out hard cash to a baseball Im presario than to a coal dealer. Now they are going to grow Turkish tobacco in California. Why not as well as Havana or Connecticut? A New York woman wants a di vorce because her husband has an other wife. Isn't she the finicky thing! A Cleveland lawmaker Insists that male bathers on the beaches be forced to wear skirts. The shameless htft- ib! fromBftB.... The report that The Harvester was sold for $50,000 Is enough to make an automobile salesman green with envy. FThe Little theater In New York is said to be for Intelligent people. Now we know why It Is called the Little theater. A license of 1 has been Imposed on cats in New Jersey, but a license on midnight concerts would be pref erable. - People who Insist on building near the Ohio and Mississippi rivers should get on the safe side by building sky scrapers. That Missouri man who Is hatching grasshoppers to feed his chickens should be careful that the supply does not exceed the demand. While those reformers are Investi gating the baseball trust, we hope they will establish an age limit for peanuts. Just to prove that there Is nothing new under the sun a Harvard profes sor has discovered that women talk too much. I A Harvard professor says Oklahoma is five years ahead of any other state. It's a long way from Harvard to Ok lahoma, too. A European Judge has declared that It Is not lawful to cheat American tourists. Nor especially easy, we may add. Why does no one ever intone a hymn to the vernal recrudescene of the chorus of the frogs? It Is not so bad. Some alarmist now announces that sauerkraut is a dangerous explosive, bu,t we'd rather risk It than boiled cabbage. A statistician tells us that only one song out of ninety-five becomes popular. Judging from the popular songs w have heard, the worst song of the ninety-five Is selected. A military authority tells ns that Washington could be captured easily by a foreign foe. He does not realize that myriads of office seekers would arise to defend their chosen city. A woman in Philadelphia broke the record by obtaining a license to marry three minutes after her divorce had been granted. Compared to this. Phil, adelpbla is even swifter than Reno. Russia is said to be planning for the greatest navy of dreadnoughts in the world. And by the time it gets it built dreadnoughts will be all out of style. Navies are largely built to be thrown on the Junk pile. A Boston reformer says each bride groom should have a certificate of financial competence to support a wife, and each bride a certificate or culinary competence to feed a hus band. In the absence of these there should be no wedding ceremony. HEARST PAPERS MISS AN ISSUE Web Pressmen Refuse to Work When Agreement Expires and Tie Up Shops.

No. 7. and the Cliicago local of the American Newspaper Publish ers' association. The difference arose on the expiration of the pressmen's contract with the Hearst newspapers and the failure to agree on terms of renewajs. The strikers explained thBt the union demanded a separate contract with Hearst, and that the men would not work for the American or Exam iner under the same contract that is in force on all the other papers in the city. They say the Hearst man agement refused to sign a separate agreement when the old one expired, April 30, and asked the men to go on working under the agreement with the publishers' association.

The first successful use of the dirigible as a weapon of offensive warfare took place a. Azisiah in Tri poli when two of the new dirigibles circled over the camp and dropped thirty bombs, completely destroying the enemy's position. Dirigibles had previously been used for reconnoitering and a few bombs had been dropped, but this was the first instance in the history of the world where they were used at length as war machines and kept at the task until an entire camp had been wiped out. No particulars of the loss of life have been received other than the statement by the Italian military commander that it was "very heavy." The Turks tried to utilize their field pieces to destroy the dirigibles with shrapnel, but they could not get enough elevation, and the explosives fell far short MEMBERS OF MOB ARE INDICTED Fort 8mlth Grand Jury Acts on 18 Men who Lynched Innocent "h.

New York. N. Y. The next twelve months will see new records in high prices for meats, eggs and butter. Is the belief of H. L. Preston, editor of a trade paper.
