The Ross Oil Co. got a big well on the Johnson farm and the Pheonix Oil Company got one on the Geisler land. Which means that there is a lot of good oil territory yet un developed In this county. George Alyea Lived Here. An Oklahoma dispatch in last night 's Register, failed to receive the attcn lion It would havo dune had it been known that the man who is reported a murderer formerly lived in this roifnty. A Guthrie diB |)atch says: "A shocking tragedy occurred at 4 o'clock yesterday (Tuesday) afternoon when George I. Alyea shot and instantly kil ed his wife and then sent a ball through his own brain. The last shot was not so effective and Alyea still lives but without hope of recovery. Apparently Alyea and wife had Jjeen silting side by side on the bed, when he placed his arm around her and discharged a revolver, the shot taking effect in the back of her head. Turning the gun on himself, he fired another shot, the ball entering the right temple and lodging in the skull. Jealousy was the cause. She was only 14 years old and it appears that the husband became infuriated because he believed her to be flirting with other men. Alyea was an engineer in the employ of a grain elevator campany. Gejorpe Alyea formerly lived in Elm township, failed and moved to Okla- honw. He secured a claim, later traveled with an Uncle Tom show and seemed not to thrive at anything. He is a brother of Mrs. Victoria Steele living west of tho river in this county and many of the older residents will remember him well and will tie sorry to hear of the latest catasthopbe. Royal Neighbors Stay Separate, There used to be two' camps of Woodmen here and two camps of Royal Neighbors. The Woodmen consolidated into one hlg camp and there has been a movement on foot .to consolidate the two comps of Neighbors, as the order is;closely affiliated with the Woodmen. lola camp.

The divorce suit of Arthur West vs Clydla West is on trjal at the court house today and quite a number of people from the northeast part of the county are in attendance. Clydla Stevenson ran away from home when flflieen years old with Arthur West, a young man somewljat old er, and they were married at Dliie Mound. This was In June, 1900. On August 1. 1901, ho sent her homo an< now ho claims she a])andoncd hini and has been living a licontious life, wliile she has filed a cros.s i)etition. nllcghig that ho dos «Ttcd licr and asking for allmony.| Tho Wcfsls lived with rcia' lives of' his who created the ImproB slon in her mind that she was being sent homo to gel rid of her. O' course lotlcra are In edivcnco, spally "you don't love nic any more" notes West is heir to a fine farm and IC.OOO and Clydia believes that she Is en titled to some financial aid.

There was a meeting of the mem- l )cr3 jof the lola band at the band room last night and a.s a result that organization will become unionized. There has I»een talk of this before, but the \x>ys did not see anything to gain by the step I and so delayed action. Since the arrangement for the union celebration hero tomorrow pressure has been brought on them again and the boys decided to become a union band. This means that the players join the musicians' union, but no other change occurs in the organization. The organization will be prfect- «d under the charter issued the Gas City band. At the same meeting tho band boys presented a handsome rocking chair to H. L. Harris, their business manager, who was recently, married. l^iss King, who has l>een here the lasti few daya vlsitlnglher brother, ;victor.Klag; retomed tqili^r home at The Labor Day Celebration. Clianutc expects to celebrate labor day tliis year and if she docs tho lol unions arc going to altcnd there, al though already invited to join with Parsons. Last year Parsons, after leading the lola delegates to believe she .would come here, turned her back and went to Fort Scdlt", and lola refuses to turn the other cheek. Chanute unions mcl last night and talked celebration plans. One of the interesting , features of thb meeting *as the speech of Mr. Humes, one of the Par .son3 mlssionalries. He said 'I.,al)or day was not set apart for booniiug towns but for celebrating the ujoHl sacred day aside from Indcpen donee day, on tho calendar. The la ixirliig- classes do not make converts calling the nonimlon men spal)rt but goltlng tlioiii riillmslasllc by Kcolng riHiKing donionsit rat ions. PnrHouH luia already worked six nionih.H and cx pendod $200 in advcrtisinK wliilo Clia nulo has not yet pcrfeclctl a temporary organization. We have already raised $1,570. all donated by the labor ing men. Wc did not coiiio here to knock on Chanute but to endeavor to persuade you to come to Parsons and liclp us. At lola wc were told that I bey were going to C (jlebrale with Chanute unless the project was abandon­ ed and in that ca-se they would come to Parson.s. Wc have planned to organize this.year a district comprising Fort Scolt, lola. Parsons and Chanute, each of ivhich will be given an oppor- unity to celebrate once in every four years. A per capita lax of 5 cents will be levied upon every laboring man in the district. This would raise $600 for the celebrating town. Each town would receive the consolidated support of the rest o ,f the district which would a.ssure the celebration to be a flattering success. We would like you to consider this proposition, but if you decide to celebrate yourself. Persons will place no obstacle In your path." Tho Invitallon will be considered when a permanent organization is perfected. There are Dogs and Dogs. "Pedigrees don't make a dog," remarked Ltito Stover i today as he ordered a meal for himself at tho restaurant and sent his Faithful Fldo lb the kitchen ifor the noon meal. His remark was occasioned by some slighting comment made oh the short-legged watch dog in a Iiouse and J think a whole lot of him. On the other hand that fine, white dog that I paid $15 for as a pup, a cur with a pedigree as long as yoiir arm, isn't worth a sou. He sloops so hard I have to k ck him to wake him up. That dog siejil barn while a thief stole a sad 11c and harness ten feet away from him and the dog never heard the rumr us.'.' Which seems- to Indicate that dogs and men have some qualities in common.
