The cylinders may he preserved, nr can be shaved down and used again. He has 24 cylinders, each capable of taking l.riflO words and each r.us- k ceptible of being shaved 100 times. ^ You may figure out for yourself how much conversation can ihus be cared for. When Mr. PuUenwider is reading his notes to the machine, he will lock himself in a room, for tlie machine will record all sounds in tlif room. The device is driv n -by electricity and controlled by a foot button which must be pressed when a record is going onto the cylinder. Tl.e talking machine, on the other hand, is merely a conversing machine a monologtie device, and the typewritist who transcribes Its talk win. regulat< the speed of the machine to suit his convenience. Mr. FuUenwider was forced to take some steps to keep from being buried liv his work and when he saw these machines exhibited in Kansas City he bought a full outfit. It will no; be seen in the court room, nor will the voice of the witness be recorded, -but an exact record of tlie proceed- /ings will be taken down and "reeled ' off" at the will of the court reporter.

There are three or tour Kands and on? well which taps them all is flowlnj; a thousand barrels a day.

The attendance lately at the drills has been very unsatisfactory, and the organlMtion cannot be kept in a state of efficiency, says Sergeant Anderton. unless more interest is shown, lola has 8ucceedc-d in keeping the company now for several years, and its leaving now would be.much regretted.

Ffid HortoH Hustled lo .Saie a .Million Foot Consumer. I^st Thursd.iy night the main of the I'ortland Pipeline Company broke in .Montgomery County, cutting off the .supply of gas at Cherryvale. The news was telejihoned to Fred Horton, .-fuiierintendent, at his home here and by midnight he had assembled a crew by telephone and started the repair work. A "sleeve" was pljced around the bleak and the gas resumed its flow by morning. One of the industries n:ost imperiled was the Edgar Zinc Company, which uses close to 1 ooo (100 cubic feet daily from the line, riiey resorted to oil and managed to keep their furnaces going until the gas supply was restored. WOr.M>ED BY TARtiET SHOT. .Monin Bovs Playing When One Shot the Other. Joseph Moran the nine-year-old son of .Mr. and Mrs. T. H. Moran, of Cas City, was very painfully but not seriously injured last evening when he was shot through the lower part of the thigh of his left leg. the bullet, which passed entirely through the leg. coming from a .22 rifle In the hands of his brother, KdwariV who Is several years his senior. The boys had been shooting In the yard, and the bullet which'struck young Moran was fired by accident. J. S. Walker has sold his handsome residence and plot of ground east of town to I. S. McClelland, the traveling salesman, who will occupy It as a home and raise chickens, a garden and other rural dellght». Mr. Walker has rented the Coutant house in Tola and will occupy it for the present. How >Vi!s Confession Broiight Alioutf l-os Aiigele.s, Dec. 2.—Startling as was the sudden confession of gull y..-ieniay of John J. .McNa^nara and his bnitlier. Jan:es H. McNamara more amazing today was the rejiort that big business luen had brought :ihout the surrender by the application of the Golden itule and the principal of conciliation founded on religious convictions. The idea that a group of hu.'inesF men had put their heads together and determined tliat to prolong the Mc- .N'amara fight might mean interminable warfare with ratifications danger ous to the city's welfare because of the unci riainty that might invest Its business interests, has won wide . ri dence. When informed that business Interests were reported to have 'aken a hand, the district attorney «a.- inclined to minimize the report. Jt was said that James U. McNamara was ready to confess earlier If he could clear his - brother of all charges, but the prosecutor was unwilling to overlook John J's. built. Tliat the sentence of the two men will be a compromise Is generally admitted. Just how far the committee of buiii- ness men wlio gathered in the hope of suggesting a way to settle the Mc.\a- niara affair were influenced by the gospel and religious principles was widely discussed today. Many there were who considered It a moral factor, strong but apart from the main issue, namely, desire to conserve the interest.^ of business. Others declared that the business men realized that if one side conceded a little and the other did the same and if the spirit of revenge was swept aside and 1 spirit of charity applied, the bitter light come to an end. Une morning paper gave I.iincoln Steffen.s credit for bringing the local business men together to suggest a compromise. "The Central Labor Council of lx).= Angeles is against lawle;isness and disorder of any kind and stands for :he uplift of .society. When the Mc- .Vamaras were arrested and illegally deiioited from Indianapolis to l.os Angeles organized labor believed it was a violation of law. Believing in the innocence of all until proven guilty it came to the aid of the accused. Upon the guilt of an accu.>-ed person being established the Central Labor Council insists upon a rigid enforce- ii:enl of the law.". That other persons implicated in il'.e dynamite conspiracy may be arrested and the McXamaras called to testify, was reported today. Moyer's Charurtcrlstic Conimrnf. Denver, Colo. Dec. 2.—Charles M. .Meyer president of the Western Federation of Miners, who with Wm. D. Haywood' and John A. Pettlbone was arre.>-ted In connection with the murder of Governor Stuenenburg, of Idalio. five years ago. declared today that the confes.slon of .McNamara furnished capital with a club which it "would not be slow to use against organized labor. For that reason, no matter how guilty 1 might have been, I never would have confessed," declared .Moyer. The District Attorney's Story. Los Angeles, Dec. 2.—District Attor ney Fredericks today declared that In making the argument whereby James H. Mc.N'amara pleaded guilty to murder and John J. pleaded guilty to dynamiting the Llewelyn Iron Works the counsel for the defense came to his terms.

One poor bed was he sleeping equipment, a pallet of ay .supplying this luxury.

Of course, there Is no way of telling whether or not the .voungpter would have become afHict- ed with hydrophobia had he not been given the Pasteur treatment, but as rabies develop more tiuickly In children than in adults, it Is thought that signs of the disease would have been detected by this time, had the boy been infected. The dog that bit the Anderson boy is known to have bitten fifteen other .hlldren in Collinsville. The head of the dog was sent to Kansas City, where it was discovered that the animal had a virulent form of rabies. SOLD BOOZE TO OFFICER. \n l«!a Lad t.et.s Into Srrlon.s Tran- ble in Fort Scott.
