The DemJiiK Investment rompany of Oswego, Kansas, has hi-eomo tlic owner of the gas wells, jilpelines, fraaichlse and other iiropertv of the Taylor Fuel & Light coinuany of Gas City' and will take charge at once. Mr. Taylor expects to go to Ponlhern Texas In th;' hope of benefiting Ills health. The Gas City plant is 8 :ili! to bo ihc sixth gas phyit owned by the Deinlng Company, wftich is a strong financial concern of .long > standing and high reputation. Mr. J. K. Kddy, of Oswego represented It In the dealings here. No announcement has yet been made as to the new manager of the company, but Jt is reported that Mr. H. O. Adams, manager for the past eight years, has resigned, his resignation to become effective December 12, when he plans to leave for Rupert, Idaho to make his home. Mr. Taylor, the founder of Gas City, •will depart with the mo.st kind wishes xjf a wide circle of friends. An optimist, he had a vision of the manufacturing city where the average eye saw but a corn field, and Mr. Taylor made his dream come true. He bouplft a piece of land and leased more, drilled wells and piped the gas to the plants which he located In the town and developed a distributing system for the town. Where thecorn shocks had ruled, he erected a second class city of some 2,500 population for some years his was a princely income. When the gas tide turned other troubles came, financial worries being accompanied by a most aggressive and stubborn rheumatism, which has undermined-his robust constitution and confined him to his home much of the time. Many years ago in a little school house whicli stands within the city limits of Gas, a little country girl, letting her fancy run riot as she and everybody else supposed, in reading tho Class Prophesy at conmjcnce- metn timer predicted that aortkc da\' a city woiuld stand where the corn and grass then stood about the little school house. That was years before the gas came and K. K. Taylor with the energy and the money and the faith to make the little girl's dream come true. It has been a wonderful bit of magic that 15. K. Taylor worked upon the bleak prairie and when he goes to the Soutl^to rest and recuperate the thousands who have known him and seen his handiwork yill follow him with good wishes. THE WEATHEB.

The voting contest being conducted by the New York Store to determine which church is to receive the handsome, electrically lighted Christmas tree shown in its window for free use in its Christmas eve services, has developed a lot of interest. Tise voiing is merely an expression of preference and the first count shows ihat Trinity Methodist church (East lol^l is away In the lead.

The following Item from the Horton Headlight is further evidence of the modem newspaper tendency. Hutchinson with over 20,000 poople seems strongly inclined to support one news paper only, figuring that by its greater revemies it will be able to reach out fartl^er ;ind tell the story of .Hutchinson much farther and better than several struggling, poverty- stricken papfrs-could do. The Headlight says: |"Tbe Gazette at Hutchinson has gone into the hands of a receivw. The men who arere backing it made a wcrth^y effort to gain popularity for the publication but apparently without a great deal of succMi. The reason for their failure is found In the tendency of the day which is toward fewier and better paperi- Hntchtnaon is a town of ^ 000 iteo^le TOt it made it pretty plain that it be- UeTOB one good dally paper is quite mfficiezit to itsjieedd^. Hie«Davis liquor case which bas been tried twice and resulted both times In a hung Jury has been set for Ita third appearance in Justice Potter's court oa December 14. If you are vlsiled l)y an.vone, man or woman, rei)re.sentinK himself or herself to be the agent of the Asso elated Charities, or to have authority from any of the well-known ladies connected with that board, and asking you for a donation "for the poor, withliold .voiir gift until you have sat- l.'ified yourself that the solicitor is telling you the truth. This suggestion is made necessary by the fact that at least one unscru- l >ulou3 per.son, a woman. Is known to have solicited and received donations m tlie name of the Associated Charities who ha.s no authority whatever for suc!i work, and wl;o Is strongly suspected oi appropriating lo her own use all Uiat she received. The Reg- Lstcr knows the name of the person under .suspicion, but will not publish it unless it becomes necessary to do .so. Tlie case is being investigated and the chances arc that this particular lino of activity will cease. But this is not the only ca<e. Some time ago Mrs. E. X. Jones, whose zea' in all pood works peculiarly exi )oscK .her to such imposture, discovered that her name had been used by someone who represented herself as soliciting supplies for the Cliildien's Home al the- request of Mr.s. .lono.';. and received a great many donations which never reached the Home at all—at least, not llie Children's Home. There is only one safe rule by which io be guided in Fuch matters: .\nd that i.< to refuse a ijift to any •;<)Jicitor vho i.s not personallj' known to you or wlio docs not come with written authority from the person or the organization he or sl ;e claims to represent. Just now the .\s.soclated Charities are making no liouse to liouFc canvass for donations. Tlie.v will not do tlrat until next Tuesday whlcii, aa tlie Hegister lias alreadj announced, will be "Donation Hay" and wlien vehicles Jn charge of mem- l )crs of the comiiTitlec will call at every house. And hereafter, as always In the past, when the Board of Chari- liis wants gifts they will ask for them through such persons and in .'.ucli manner as will leave you In no doubt that what you give will be put IO the best po.isible use. The people of lola are so prompt, and generous in their giving that it is not necessary for the Board to erfiploy "agents" to make a daily business of going from house to house In order that the needs of tlie worthy poor may be met. in this connection the Keglster is asked to say that only two vehicle? have thus far been offered for the i :se of the collectors next Tuesday whereas eight or ten are urgently needed. If you can possibly spare vour carria ;:e or .voiir auto next Tue? day. call up Dr. Shadivick and tell him so. ACIEPT FT. SrOTT QIESTIOX.

They have until the 2l8t, Inst., to decide which side they shall take. IMPS WILL PLAY HILDBED. lolii I'oodiHii Team Will Go to Mildred Tomorrow, for a Game.
