D. ; fiblelds, the resident imember. Work ; on the change is to begin at once andj i!t Is hoped to be usipg' the enlarged (loom by August 15th. . The plans show that the new quarters will be one of jthe 'handsomest store rooms in lola. The present room Is 100 feet long and about twenty feet wide. The south wall of this room is of lath aod piaster, the ceiling be Ing supported by iron pillars. This waHwill be taken out, throwing the present store | and the room vacated , by the HoblnBon grocery Into one room,-100 by| 38 feet. Tfae interior will be repainted end refitted. Sheir iSg on the north and south walls, { double row of tables and a row of • show cases will care for the much larger stock to be installed at once.

An elevated cashier's desk in the rear and at the rear north comer a department devoted to children's furnishings exclu- 1 Blvely will be added. The Barclay-Shields Clothing Company intends to occupy more space in /he local field and is getting ready for It. i ~ Mr«. Nellie Boltwobd Badly Hurt. Mr. D, B. D. Smeltzer has jus! received hews of a most distressing accident which occurred to his daughter, Mrs. Nellie Boltwood, on the Fourth of July, in company with her husband and a couple of friends Mrs. Bolt-wood was 'sitting on ^ the platform of the little suburban station of Ravens V^ood, near Chicago, waiting for a local train to take tbem on a piculcing excursion, when the j Flj'er went by, , rtmnlng at the rate of sixty miles an hour. Just as it passed the station fsome one on it threW a beer bottle of: one of the bottle struck a "out of the window coaches. The heavy post of.the awning, and a broken fragment of it struck Mj-s. Boltwood on : the side of the head and face, cutting .ft deep gash three inches long over the temple, and lacei-ating the cheek frightfully. As soon as possible she • was taken to the office of a surgeon and it required three hours to extijact the bits of broken glass from her face and. dress tlje is-pufld. She came through the ordeal as well as could be expected, and thanks to her fine health will doubtless recover unless some unforseen complication should set In. But the scar which will always mar the fair face will be a sad rjfeilnder of the terrible accident. •pt course no one on the platform co \ild tell who thr.ew! the bottle, but th^ whote detective force of (he rall- Tpad has been put to work on the case, and if the guilty man is found he will certainly be made to pay the penalty of bis criminal recklessness. • Mrs. Boltwood i has &. host of friends in lola and they will: all sympathize with, her most sincerely.

Iida Steam LaofldiT, When Yw Want 4 Flnt-Ctass Jo|>ol TIN OR CORNICE WORK Joe, The Tinner That hjeosho River Bill. f In regard tO the defeat of the Steir art bUL to straigjiten the Neosho, Seth Wells says inj the Erie Record: "Senator Stewart, I of Allen County .Intra- duced a resolution at the spedacr session of {the legislature to appropriate 13,000 out of the state treasury to pay for a survey of the Neosho river. The resolution was killed in the' House which was right land proper. What Justice Is there in ludne^the people of Wilson and Crawford counties for snr veying and straigiitening the Neosho river. Then, too, iwe ere not so sure that the people of Neosho county want the river straightened even if the surveyor should repoijt the project a fea Bible one. . A general straightening of the river would j render most of the levees useless, thereby destroying $200,000 worth of property. To straighten the river above jand leave it as it Is in Neosho county would precipitate a flood of waters upon us from al>ove at every rise of i)xe river The time of a special session is not sufficient for the consideration;, of io important and far reaching question Pleased With the Last Well. ' A Register reporter learns from member of the lola Oil & Production Company that they believe their well No. 3, Is the best oiler in Kansas. It was shot last Thursday. The well is southwest of lola some four or five miles and Is really in new territory save for the No. 2 well which was reported in this paper. No. 3 flowed oil all over tlie surrounding ground with in two hours after it was shot and it Is estimated that a good many barrels went to waste. The company has good tract of land in the vicinity and is now arranging to drill No. 4 on the Williams farm about three-quarters of a mile west of No^ 3. The grade of the oil is very excellent and the quan tlty seems to promise a record-break ing amount. TOPEKIl EETSJ_H1E LEIIIiyE Nevada Franchise Has Been Trans ferred to the- Kansas Capital- Deal Made Last Night There was another change made in the Missouri Valley League last night when the Nevada franchise was trans ferred to Topeka. This is the only change that has been made during the present season. It Is a well known fact that Nevada has never supported a ball team except by large monthly subscriptions. I^st year when she won the pennant the team stnt'rgled along without en couragement save the big subscriptions of A. B. Cockeritl and a few others. This.year the team got off poorly and Mr. Cockerill after subscribing liberally gave the franchise to Cecil Bankhead, the second-baseman. A short, fierce fight has been made to get in the running, but Sedaiia took a whole string of games -and lola took the rest. The Nevada "dobber" could not stand the test and down it went. Last night a telegram was received by the team here from Bankhead, who went to Topeka yestefrday Evening, that he had transferred the franchise to Topeka. The team will' go on playing and will open at home on July 19. lola will play the opening game, making the fourth town in which the locals have started the game this year. The change in the league will strengthen it, the towns now being: Tola. Pittsburg, Leavenworth, Fort Scott and Topeka In Kansas, and Joplin, Spilngfield end Sedaiia in Missour^ Murphy Says He is Sure. Ke ist(j ^d. Murphy, who struck the blow thajt fractured the Jaw of Mr. George [-es, as reported in last night's Reg T, says that he is very confident thajt he hit the right man. The girls declared that the man made an insult ing remark to them and they watched him closely and are positive they poU ed out the right one to Murphy. Mur pby asked Keyes if he "knew how lo respect a lady." The reply made was that he "didn't know whether he did or not." Murphy exhibits a sore hand which he says he received from a knife in Keyes' hand after he struck the first blow and that he landed the second one after being cut with the knife. . ' " .

F. EJstelle. who made Kansas the ^ene of his crimes for* many years. Is oh trial now at Savanna. III., for robbing/a Burlington train and killing the' express messenger. He and his partner were'.cauglit by Pinkertons at Memphis and later it was learned that the prisoner was Estelle. At the time of the penitentiary outbreak at Lansing Esteiie'jwas the ringleader.^ With a wooden pistol he helped disarm several guards and escaped from-the coal mine and fled across Kansas, his deeds of daring being almost unrivaled. Local Interest in Ebteile arises from the fact that Judge Smith of this city marriddihim. In a sketch of bis'life the Kansas City Journal says: Estelle was an old and persistent offender. About five years ago Tic robbed a postofflce in Marshall cpunty, Kansas, and a store in Talmo, Kansas. About the same time he robbed the safe in the Union Pacific depot at Garrison, Kan.,; and the postofflce at Irving, Kan. Next he robbed the iwst- offlce at Louisville, Kan. Government inspectors traced Estelle to Bellvlow, Kjan-. and caught up with him on the railroad tracks a few miles out of town, Estelle had a companion, an ex-convict. 'The two opened fire OJi the pursuing party of three men. but no one was hurt. Estelle was captured and confessed his crimes. lie received a two years' sentence In the federal court at Topeka. Just before his capture Estelle had fallen in love with a country glri in La Fontaine, Kan. While in prison he corresponded with her, without let ting her know where he was. lie sent his letters to an ex-convlct in Texas and occasionally sent him money that he might secure "A Life of Christ "Gospel Helps" and other religious books for the girl. After his release Estelle got the girl, took her to lola and married her. From "there they went to Topeka, where they lived in a cheap hotel. The third morning af ter their arrival he left suddenly for Irving, Kan., with another ex-convict named Frank Hclter. The. two men blew open the safe of a merchant an took $100 in money and $7,000 in notes. The currency was blown to pieces and the coins battered. The men stole a horse ride to Beattle, Kan. and from there stole rides on the rail road back to Topeka. There Estelle was arrested for trying to pass some of the battered coin. Estelle confess ed his crime and returned the notes. His wife, on learning that her husban was a criminal, left him. Estelle then swore that he would kill his wife at the first opportunity. lie was bound over to the grand jury and was await ing trial when he broke jail at Mary vlile. Near Council Grove if; was sur rounded by a posse. A deputy, stumb ling In the dark, saw a figure approach him and thought it was the sheriff. "Hello, sheriff, where do you think these fellows are?" he said in a low tone. Estelle shot the deputy dead Later Estelle was again surrounded near Emporia, Kan. When two arm ed men approached him he Jumped up and pointing away exclaimed: "There he is! I saw him dodge down right over there. One of you go^ that way, the other i this way and we'll get him sure." ! Estelle again escaped but was soon chased Into a wheat field. Estelle was badly wounded and lay concealed for almost an hour. Suddenly ho lifted up his head above the wheat and was captured. He was taken to Council Grove and sentijnced to be hanged for killing the deputy sheriff. Officers of the state penitentiary at Lansing are watching the proceedings of Estelle's trial in Illinois closely. There is v,ery little evidence against him there and it Is not believe<l that he will be convicted. If acquitted he will be brought t)ack to the Kansas prison and there are high officials there that believe Kansas will bo the scene of an official hanging shortly after he arrives. Governor Bailey recognizes that Estelle is one of the most dangerous of criminals; and Warden Jewett says he would not be surprisetl nor displeased if the governor should sign bis death warrant. ^ Energy all gone?
