MeEI^OY PLACE. Writes Letter Yoking the riilralrons Sentlnent of the Uld Si'tUcn and the Old Soldiers. Humboldt, Kas., Dec. 4, 1911. Editor lola Register: Considerable has been said by cor respondents through your paper about the pOBtofflce situation In this town. I deshre to add my say. Mr. McEIroy, as all who are interested In this matter know, was an "old timer." He and his "Union" were fixtures of Humboldt. Me was not only an "old timer" but an old veteran of the Civil war; perhaps the last one to ever be postmaster oi oiii' town, for we old soldiers realise as do those around .js that the toils and cares and burdens of 65 to SO years of stienuous life has pushed us out bf the "eligible" for any public position. We accept the situation cheerfully and our hearts are made glad daily as we witness the wonderful growth, prosperity and power that has come to this now the greatest nation on earth, conditions that we in no small measure belped to bring about and McElroy was one of us, and now comes his vidow, no less a fixture of Uuniboldt. All ber happy childhood days spent here; all her Joyous school daj-s then her happy, busy married life of motherhood and family cares, but never too busy to take active part in church work and all work tending to better the morals of our people, being especially active worker In the Woman's Relief Corps. And now as a tribute to her husband, she would take up this work she is so well qualified in every respect to do and finish out the term. MT. McEIroy had been appointed to fill. Is it asking too much? Will our Senators ask President Taft to make the appointment? Will the good people of Humboldt give her the Io>;al support she so richly deserves? They surely will. There wotild have been no controversy but for a mistake Immediately after Mr. McElroy's death a report became current that Mrs. McElroy wduld not accept the position of postmistress and so naturally a number of very worthy api)licants for the place api>eared. Two of these app/I- cants consulted me in regard to Ilic matter and when 1 tcsld thcni Mrs. McElroy de.slrtd the place, both of iliem a .s«ureil mo at onvc thty would not bt> in her way. .Mr. Q.sborn who circulated a petition asklnjr for an election on the •li^estion hoK slnn' assured me he did fo bcfltving till" rumor In re- Kard to Mrs. McElroy's declining the lilace and I do not believe Mr. Oshorn will press the election question further, nor do 1 believe there will be any serious opjiositlon to the appointment of Mrs. McElroy and I am sure such .-ilipointnient would be very generally ai)proved.

Kansas, .who came to lola in the general search for his renegade wife, hut failed to locate her here. Smith Is 35 years old and wealthy. His wife is 2G and good looking. Smith thinks that his wife w-ill be foimd in com- nany with Charles Shofferd, a neighbor youth of thelr'a 21 ysars old who disappeared about the same time. Mrs. Smith cashed a %nOO check on Smith's bank account liefore leaving. Her trail was traced to Hutchinson, but for two weeks no clue has been found and Mr. Smith, accompanied by Mrs. Smith's brother, are making a careful search. Letters sent her from Omaha were taken from the office, but nobody has seen the runaways. Smith furnished the police at HutchinsoA with pictures of hia wife and Sbotferd but was unable to tell the color of her eyes or hair, though they had been married Hve years. Perhaps this carelessness may have somc- thlng to do with her departure. One of the most hotly contested wrestling matches ever seen In this lection occurred Saturday night at Colony, when "Young" Luts the Kansas City wrestler, who Is making his home temporarily In this city and Harry Wyatt, of Colony, wrestled an hour and flrty-five minutes, Wyatt finally succeeding In pinning Lut's .«houldei.'« to the mat.

The Granby smelter has bought TOO tons at one mine for $31,000. The Edgar Zinc Company has bought 3,000 tons at the Kramer mine and shipments are being made rapidly to the smelters.
