The usual smiling countenance of Arthur Oaks, prominent in "culli d" social circles of this city, is i ver clouded, and he is making perl ocal trips to Kansas City with som w In his heart, blood lu his eye and a razor In his sleeve.

For some time Oaks has been col lectlng poultry, game aud produce, taking them to that city and with the usststance of a partner of dusky shade, disposing of them at a sub Btantlal profit.
