Down a| Humboldt yesterday there came near being a fire in the business section because of the fireworks. A Roman candle was shot into the front door of Bert Ernest's store and it set fire to the stock of fireworks. Luck- ly the fire w-as put out without fur ther- damage. The Tri-State Oil & Gas Company 'got action" about as quick as any of them. It was orginized trwo weeks ago and last Friday it bronght in its first well, which shows up a good average for the field. Miller and-Ben nett are amting the directors and there are some Iowa men associated with them. The holdings are in the Owl creek neighborhood west of Humboldt. Tho Register ofBce has recently added to its equipment a Long Primer face for Its Linotype. This is the type in, which the law requires legal briefs to. Be printed, and this notice is given in order that anyone having work of this kind to bo done may know that they can have it done at this offlce__tn the shortest possible time.* The article in Saturday 's Register on "How to Make Oiled Roads" was reprinted from the Kansas Derrick and this is to apologize for the neglect to give • proper credit. The article was rery interesting, and if it shoold inspire some township to try the ex- Kansas is that they (are caused by tho eruptions a year ago of Mont Pelee, Soufriere and other volcanoes. Captain Ives, signal officer of the Department of the Colorado, and a scientist of note in the United States army, advances this theorj-. '•Tho violent eruptions of Mont Pelee, the Soufriere and other volcanoes a year ago are undoubtedly the cause of tho heavy rains in Kansas that are responsible for the disastrous floods," says.Captain Ives. "Rain must have a nucleus, a beginning. There is something that causes'rain, of course. W'e know it i.s condensations. The volcanoes spouted Hp vast clouds of ashes, sending them far into the u^ per strata where there are no clouds. To what height those ashes were sent is purely conjectural. It is certain they wont far above tho cloud limit. ••Currents have taken ashes a vast .listanco. and they have, as it wore, acconimodateil thouiaolvos to tho- rcvoluiiou of tho world. ••The.^o .isho.s attaino<l ft certain height. Then there was a resistance that stopped them and they began settling. They passed, naturally, through the most distant strata of clouds.Th «T condense<i water plainly statwi, and opened vast clouds and created more condensations, and finally the lowor strata of tho clouds were reached, aai then came this of water upon the western slope of the Missioslppi valley. That has n«t j?ot the full effect is attested by lieary rains in ^Cebraska, Iowa. Missouri and other states and snows in tho mountains of Colorado, biit Kansas appears^to be the center of the downpour. • I do not'know how long this will continue. There can be no doubt that the accumulation of moisture in rain is enormous. As never in the" history of the worlil were there such eruptions of volcanoes. .=o, it is now .saM. have there never been such rains as those that have.fallen in Kansas, fif- ccn inches, for instance, falling in Abilene in one day. There was naturally an amount of ashes thrown on\: of tho volcanoes that cannot be estimated. It is beyond estimation and naturally this means unprecedented rftlns."
