She is atiraitive young and withal a girl that ccou- . liiandB admiration. When Engineer McNab had lois'.ire time, he strolled the street.s of .Morjyi viewing the village and iho pretty , girls. Mi$s AVilson appealed to him as being particularly the one in whom ne should be interested. . There wer;^ many clandestine nioet- ings. so the btory goes, but wh<'n McNab's party was ordered away, a romance ijiat seemed well under way • during the summer apiieared to be withering with the fall brt?ezes. That was, however, only an appearance. The flame of love once thoroughly aroused isn't easily quenched . as. later developments proved; Last Saturday afternoon. Miss Wilson guielly and setreliy left Moran.

Struck matin of the lola Porllimd was here toilay and when aski-d about the coal burning installutlon at the local cement plant, expressed much satisfaction with it. •The use of coal for fuel was begun live days ago," he said to a reporter, "and it has worked beiterthan w,. had hoped. The production will be close to 30 per cent higher than it Was from oil and gas, the quality is as good, not even the color being-dif- fireiit, and Instead of needing 12.00U,- 000 feet of gas daily for the mill we are able to run on 2;t»00,000." Tho pulverized coar is being used not only in burning the clinker but under tho boilers iii .maktng steam. The gas is used only In the big gas engines which generate power for the plant. It will take some time to decide what tho comparative cost of burning cement under the new system may prove to be, bn: there is reason to hope that it wiL be lower than when oil is used. Mr. Struckman expressed the belief that the southeast field will be able to supply practically all the gas needed by the plant and that this would release enough of the Portland Pipeline supply to insure a plentiful supply for ih«» city of lola this winter. . The'coal burning process will be watched with much interest, for with it working satisfactorily, the only thing that can prevent the big mill oij- eratlng to greater capacity will be the market, und that shows signs of a purposo to remain reasonably strong. There ar<s' five cement plants in Allen county and the day when they all settle down to regular work at fair prices means big things for Allen county.

Papers were served on tho Uegister today informing it that a suit for $j,iHiO has been filed In the district court against it for libeling Harve McCoy, of Louisburg, Kansjis. Tile suit grows but of the murder of Postmaster McElheney. of Louisburg. Some newspaper'correspondeal sent the story to the Kansas City papers that young McCoy had been arrested on circumstantial evidence for the murder. Later it developed that there was no truth in this dispatch. The Kansas City papers turned the news over to the Associated Press wliich passe*! It along to all the newspapers receiving the press report. The Uegister printed it in all innocence, and some days later, when iu- fornii-d by the Associated Press that the story was untrue, the Register printed the correction and afterwards a reporter obtained the sa/ne denial from Rev. Johnson, who was visiting here and printed it, before there was any hint of a suit, but in tlie pursuit of justice. It is presumed that the attorneys for the plaintiff have sued or will «ue all the newspapers wljlch published the- original story, alleging In each case, as in the Register! 'hat the pa|>er, "has a large cir(|ulation in the vicinity of Louisburg,"; and that it jirimed the story "falsely and maliciously and wilfully." Out of twenty or fifty papers a little, collection of $3,000 each would put McCoy In very fair circumstances. The Kansas City Star, however, which problibly received the original dispatch, is sued for $30,000. Back of It all Is the interesting que« tion of the motive of the liar who sent In tho news item by wire to Kansas City. The murder of the postmaster remains a mystery and the discovery of the perpetrator is a i>art of the duty of the uewspai)cr8. The attorneys for McCoy are Sheridan, Meust;r. & She^dan. of Paola. They ask for J5,000 and the costs, which includes their own fees and havy taken care that the Register, should It feel so inclined, must not settle with McCoy, but must pay them. Time and space now forbid, but tomorrow", the Register will further investigate the pitfalls of life of news- jiapcr Xolk. niy the .A .>!si »cJalid rre.<w) Washingtoii. Oct. •.•l.~-Th«iims Fortune Ryan was the first witness toda> before the Senate campaign conlriliu- tlons committee Ryan told the com- nijttee that he shouldered isriO.OOO of ^ife debts of thn Democratic nutlotml committee In l'.tt)4. "Knrly In the campaign," he said "1 gave $.".0 ,000 to the fund, although 1 opposed the noniinnilon of I'arker. I also gave probjibly $50,000 in smaller contributions. When the end of tie cauipntgu was drawing near and 't was apparent that Parker couldn't be «dected. his friends told me the cam- pjiign would collajwe unless the committee received flnunclul assistance. 1 agreed. In order to pay the party workers and preserff! the Integrity of the rurty, to furnish $3.".0,0oo . That nmde u total of $4.".0 000 I gave through out the campaign. This was a personal contribution and did not represent any one except myself. 1 didnt glv<; the money to elect Parker. I merely wanted to preserve the Democra'iv.- organization." Replying to questions concerning the preconventlon campaign of 1:»1'J, Ryan said he contributed between $7r >.000 and $S0.0OO to Harmon's campaign and $30,000 to Underwood's. A "llellrejl Worklnemau.'' George W. Perkins, the second witness, today gave his occupatioh as a "retired workingman." Asked as to the 1904 canipaign, he said he was asked by Treasurer Blissf to take a place as member of the local committee in New York to aid in collectin.t; funds for the campaign. "I worked I;: .\ew York," said I'erkins. He flatly denied that he knew of any concerted political action by th«j financial Inieresis In Wall street. He said he gave S7 ."i ,000 or $80,000 to ih • i:<04 funds. Perkins said that for the .New York IJfe Insurance Company h( advanced to the: Republicans $4!i,,=^uu In i;i04 for which he was reimbursed by the company. I^ter when the insurance investigation began he returned the money to the company. Perkins testified that his total contributions to Roosevelt's preconven­ tlon campaign was $123 000. Perkins di'iiouiiceii ,as au "unmitigated falsehood" the charge that he had unUev- written the Koosevell preconventlon campaign this year in the sum of three millions. Rising from the witness chair before the Clapp committee and shaking his clenched fist. Perkins houied "Among a long list of unmitigated lle.s ihroughout this campaign, that statement, perhaps, ought to be placed at the top because it Is the large.-it." Taking up the accus.itlons by Chairman Hilles that the International Harvester Company had made large contributions to the Roosevelt campaign. Perkins declared with heat: "This is an absolute falsehood, made out of whole cloth, and If 1 lilies has any, reason to believe contributions have been made by the Harvester coin pany, he owesJt to me and to others to have the books of the company audited for the iiuriK >se of proving or disproving the charge*."
