Meyers asks to have doeda to his property In IjiHarpo cnnct-Ui 'd on the grounds that the doi;um<'nt plaied of record was "stolen and carrii -d away by Gordon and Uavis" and that after it was recorded here a iransfiT was made the next day tu Nelson "in furtherance of their conspiracy to cheat and defraud this plaintiff out of said property." The property in question is lots f.vo and three in block 2 in Crusc's spcond addition to lAHarpe. Meyers was approached with the suggestion of n .trade for Oklahoma farm land and ho madei out the deed to Davis, but did not deliver it, he says. This was on November 14. Two days later they went to .^Woodward to examine the farm, the deal, according to Meyers, being contingent on his apjiroval of the land. Ho looked, decided the land was worthless and called off the trade, but discovered later that th< deed was gone. He accuses Davis, who went with him to view the land of taking if from his grip at the hotel and smding it to loIaAo be placed of record. The deed was plaoeJ of record here on November 17. Tho ^ next day a deed came to the office •y transferring the lots to Charles .^.el- son, which Meyers also declares a part of the scheme to get his property. Concerning the manner in which Davis obtained the deed whtcii Meyers made out to Davis but spys he never intended to deliver untfl he viewed and approved of the land, .Meyers says: "Plalntl |r furth.r avers that the defendant, Gordnu iJavis, deliln'r- ately stole, took and carried uwny said deed to tbe above described premises."

The suit asks to have both the d .-eds cancelled and set aside und that Ileg- l^'er of Deeds John l.aury be. enjoined .,^nd rcstralnrd from recording niiy instruments pietf-ndini; to tranrfer or mortgage said property.

T. McElroy. The Herald adds that Mr. Osborn found practically no opposition to the plan and that be secured the signatures of nearly all whom he approached. While it Is not exactly new, it has never been very common to select postmasters In this way. By a coincidence the only other case in this coun ty was in Humboldt years ago when Ccngressman E. H.

One more obstacle blocks the'path of the loin high school team in its way toward the basket ball champion ship of the state—the Buffalo team. The local boys clearly demonstrated last night their superiority to thr' formidable Halstcad team, hut many of the fans are inclined to feci a little nervous about the outcome of tonight's game. In their first game of the sea^ion th? locals defeated Buffalo In that town by a margin of one point. Two of the Buffalo boys came In yesterday afternoon in time to see the loIa-Halstead game to get an Idea of the style of lola'a play. The rest of the (earn arrived this iiflernoon. Tlie game will not be ciilIfHl until S::in tonight, as the girls of the high school will engage In a preliminary Kume, the contestants to be two picked teams. This game will begin at e(j.'hf o'clock. In the game tonight Kirk Badgeloy •*^'ill take the place of Nelson at guard Netson having auatalned a painful in- Jury to his foot in practice several days ago. In one of the halves It Is probable that Kenneth Foust will be put in at forward in tho place of lAi- ralne Cantrell. Otherwise the lineup of the team will be unchanged.
