Dill . Brown, an employe, was Uirovvn several feet by the force of the expicslon and severely injured. The cause of jLhe explosion is unknown. This will temporarily cut uS tlie •upply of gas to Wichita and the southwestern part of Kansas until an extension can be built around the rums.' Even then the expepslve pumping machinery which forces the gas through the mains will not be replaced and It will likely be some lime before the pressure will be buck to normal, again. beheaded by a narrow margin.

As the name suggests the team will be conducted in a manner similar to that of the White Sox ball team the iiast srason and it Is probably that a majority of the members will be former White Sox players.

Child Is Bom to Mr. and Mrs. Will JMilIch In Cheney Ambulance. A stout, hearty youngster, with good pair of lungs, later given the name, Augustus Orlando, was bom In the Cheney emergency ambulance while enroute from the Katy depot yesterday afternoon, as the mother was en her way to her rooms. Mrs. Koblich had gone to the depot preparatory to taking the train for Chanute ot Join her husband. OShe was taken suddenly sick and in the course of her removal to the rooms gave birth to the child.—Fort Scott Republican. Anyone who doesn 't feel shocked at the Eight 6f the players wearing white panties should enjoy watching the basket ball games as played by the lola high school team. This is the opinion of an amateur, not of the Register's sporting editor, after watch ing three games. You probably think the game silly now, but If you will take the trouble to attend one you will get the fever. The game is easily understood, the scoring as simple as one, two, three, and the agility the quickness of mind and eye and hand and legs of those kids Is something to make you good and miserable to think that you are growing old. And while the panting, faepantled players are whirling their opponents off their feet, the bright-eyed, good- looking scbool kids who are quite grown-up occupy the benches and cheer and sing songs and develop a fever of enthusiasm for the team, for themselves, for the school and for Tola. It's good for the kids—shame on you.for needing a chiding by an Old Batch—you who are responsible for them should be Interested in what they are just plumb crazy about.

Nothing ever comes your way. Just yesterday you pointed out a fellow who was hurrying down street and said: "Look at Sykes there. He has had all kinds of luck. He's rich now and I am busted. But we both started out together." I know^ why Sykes has had luck. He has worked hard When you were on pleasure bent Sykes,was tolling away at bis llttl jobrthat paid him about forty dollars a month. You wouldn't work for such a jilttance. , Sykes Worked six days a week and you worked about two. Sykes only bought th6 things he needed; you bought everything you wonted and about half you didn' need. Sykes didn't make much, but he saved a lot. He Is sUlJ at It. That's why Sykes Is lucky. Had you done as Sykes did you would now be just as well "0(^ as he Is, and possibly better. You are smarter than Sykes but you have no control. You have plenty of speed atfd curves, but you are wild. That's why you have not won your game. You must settle down to business and sift them over the plate. Then you can win yon& game. This thing that Sykes has and you call luck Is nothing more than Industry. Get Sykes' recipe and follow It and you will be lucky, too. A Watery Hay Field. Ex-Governor Hoch in Marlon Record: Yesterday, between Boston and Portland I saw a vast piece of level pasture land dotted with thousands of little stacks of hay, about a wagon load to the stack, perched on circular networks of sticks stuck in the ground and pjpotrudlng above It several feet. It Was a queer sight and I wondered at its significance. The hay seemed newly cut and the newly mowed ground looked much like Kansas prairie pasture. Today, coming back the same way, I saw that great pasture looking like a great ocean the waters covering the ground as far as the eye could reach, and those thousands of little hay stacks dotting the watery waste. The tide had come In. The Emporia Gazette devoted considerable space and paid a mighty handsome compliment to Dr. S. S. Hilscher on his lecture delivered there some evenings ago on "The History of the Jew." Kansas City Prodnre. Kansas City. Dec. 9.—BUTtlCR— Creamery 35c; firsts 33; seconds 31 ( packing stock 21.

Frank Scott, cashier of the Allen County State Badk, was unable to be at his window today, being confined to hia home with a severe attack of rheu matism, an ancent enemy of his which usually selects a dreary, drizzly day to put in an appearance. ^ When the Allen County Poultry Show is held. one important matter should not be overlooked again this year. At the Topeka ahow a ribbon was awarded the rooster which had the best crow, and ceitalnly anyone who expects to be surrounded and serenaded by the cockerel early in the morning should pay somfe atten^^' tion to the' musical qnallty W hia voice. An unmusical morning call might rouae a man In anger and lead to esdlen evil in tbe world. Horte-Lovlng Xenophon. We may breed different types of horses, and we may harness and use them differently; but the points of excellence that combine to form the most perfect horse are no different In one age than another. Xenophon. it la true, attached some Importance to points that we care much less about now—ai, tor instance, a smooth, round back that is 'easy to ait upon.' which was owing to the fact that the Qreeka did not use saddles, but only a clotb, fastened to the horse's body by a Bureingle; but these are minor mitten. He knew the points of t good horse, and be knew horse nature. And be had, too, that delight In horaea that is found only in the true horseman, the man who loves aa well aa knows them.
