And the 30—why, yes, the 30 belongs to Topeka—tile in fee elmple— nobody questions it—perfectly welcome- to It—nobody else seems to •want it. Topeka even wasn't particularly anxious to have it, although It worked Jiard enough to get it "lola! Where is Ida?" You see that is the way the trouble began. That was the query that came back over the wire when somebody in lola called up somebody In Topeka and asked if the Topeka high school basket ball team would not come down and play a game with the Ida team. Didn't know where lola waa! - "Of course lola isn't in our class." (More trouble brewing!) "But we don't mind coming down and giving your boys a practice game pro>ided you will not insist on a return game." iTrouble! Trouble!) Did you ever hear of the New York ward politician who thought he was a bigger man than Lincoln because iie came from a bigger town? And so they canie. The lola boys met them, as is their courteous habit, at the station and tried to make it plnasant for them. But these bigger boys from the bigger town were so bii .sy maintaining their nasal appon- dUKt'H at the elevation they thought , necessary to properly express the feeling with which they found thcm- Fflves In a dinky little town to play a hunch of kids, that the hospitable aticnUons of the home quintette were laipely lost, or at least misplaced. And when they trotted onto the armory floor the tlrst basket was made —oh. BO easily. Taking candy from ' a blind baby! And the next basket wa .-sn't so very hard. But the third one—why they didn't get that at all! The bunch of kids got it But It was plainly a fluke. Why yes, of course it was a fluke. One of the accidents will happen, but that must not be allowed to happen again. But Bomekow or other it did happen again—and again—and yet again. And lo. when the first half was over the scores were even! But of course that was only to keep up the interest of the crowd! It is well, even In a very little town, to let the people think, to let them think they are getting the worth of their money. But In the second half, why, yes, in the second half, there will be a different story to tell. And there was! And what a story! How the wires must have sobbed that carried it to Topeka! Poor Topeka ! Poor dd Topeka! How have the mighty fallen! How has the glory departed! That last half wasn't a game; it waa a battle. It wasn't a battle, even; it was a massacre! In the middle of it time waa called while some little point was being decided. The house was still, everybody listening breathlessly for the ' decision. WTiereupon the irrepressible, inevitable kid standing on the' lockers at the west side of the room lifted up his megaphone and inquired: *Is lola on tbe map yet!" Of course it was impertinent and unmannerly and discourteous to visitors, and the kid ought to have been promptly epanked and put out In. Etead of which there was a shout of approvinsr applause and laughter that Jarred the windows. It was part of tbe trouble that began with that question which came over the wires: "lola? Where is Ida!" And the game went on. And* yhen It waa over the blackboard showed: lola 81 Topekn 10. Total score: loia 51, Topefca .10. And a howling mob swarmed out onto the floor everybody bugging ev- _erybody and slapping ' everybody's back and yelling at the top of his vdce, and surged out onto the street and marcfci'd and sang and cheered and rang djw bells and every other tmaginable v.ay made a Joyful noise till midnight !liAtLBO.lD EABNIKCIS AKB BAXK CLEABUiGS WELL HAdTAINEP. fmprorement Is Xoted Especially In tlio Iron Tmde nnd Allied - Indnstrles.

The Gloomy Poets. In the course'Of a week a large number of poems reach this office, most of them written by persons 'wltli little experience in verse making, says the Kansas City Star. The striking; thing about the output, however, la not that so many persons who have never written poetry should be experimenting with it. but that nlne-tentlia of them should bo so melancholy. Thai great majority of poems submitted for publication reflect 4 spirit of gentle gloom. "What are the wild waves saying?' Inquiro the poets with ono accord. And why do they say It? Why should a sense of woo weigh us down? Whi are the autumn winds so melancholy? W'liy is anything, anyhow? A careful reading of several hun M\\ DIE.jdrcd poems of this type does not leave tho impression that the writers aro such a gloomy lot as they might appear. One comes to believe that most of them are normally, cheerful, but that somehow they have been led to suppose that sadness belongs to poetry. BOY SERIOrSLY INJURED. Three Year Old Son «f Mr. and Xrs. J. J. Haloney rnronscIou.s for TweWy Mlaute<i. The three year old son of Mr. and Mrs. J. J. Maloney, of 412 South street, sustained painful and it was thought fo' a time, serious injuries in an accident Satufday night. Mr. Maloney was playing with the child by tossins it into the air, and one time when he iossed it.up he made a miscalculation, and it fell to the floor behind him. striking its head on the floor. The ^Heroic Dream Came True. Patrolman William Noble of Dorchester, Mass.. dreamed that be was standiu.e iu Peabody square when runaway Cre horses rounjled the coiaerJ Iu his dream he saw five littio CBjI-; dren In the path of the mad anim^sJ Ho seized the horses by the biU and broJc ^t them to a stop within three feet of the chijdren—and then he woke up. Still pondering over the dream Noble went off duty, walked to Peabody square and told another "cop' ' New York, Dec. 16.—In various directions there are indications of slow but certain improii-ement There are still some coniplaints of slackness in irade and In many Instances profits f re upon a smaller scale than for several ye^rs. At the same .time the rolume of general trade Is fairly satisfactory. There has been no shrinkage of consequence, as proved by well sustained railroad earnings and bank ,crearings, and after the >eason of quiet incidental to the dose of the 'year there is fair assurance of at least moderate recuperation. By far the most significant element Jin the industrial situation is the atrik ing improvement in the iron trade. The turn waa made about tbe middle I of October. Since then orders have steadily expanded, and this week the big producers of finished steel have "been,so besieged that in not a few lines capacity is fully engaged for four to six months ahead. Prices are already firmer. In some Instances they are being advanced, and the probability is that the close ^of the year will find about 8ft% of the country's steel capaotty fully employed. This is an exceedingly satisfactory state of affairs, albeit there is room for further improvement The bulk of orders have come from the railroads, which deferred their purchases for material so long that a rush of belated business is now coming on. It not actually a buyer's panic, the present anxiety to place orders is at least somewhat suggestive of that state of affairs. Some of the roads have already waited too long in placing their orders for rails and equipment and may find themselves crippled for want of the latter in case of any substantial revival of traffic. Big expenditures are ahead for the railroads in comiiliance with the demand for better facilities and more modern standards. The Iron trade is still regarded as one of the most reliable trade barometers, and It Is quite certain that railroad managers with their exceptional opportunities for observation would not be placing such large orders for equipment unless satisfied that a turn for the bcltter had come. This action in the matter should be accepted as proof of confidence in the future. Jn banking circles there Is also a more hopeful feeling. A Hllght improvement in Investment conditions is observable, and this tendency will urohaMy become more nmrked as the time for the $220,000,000 .lanuary disbursements approaches near. There Is an abundance of capital awaiting employment and only two conditions appear to be necessary for venture, viz., safety of principal and good re- luins. Investors are insisting upon the latter more,firmly than usual. In other words, capital, too, as well as labor is demanding better returns. A fair amount of new issues have recently been placed upon the market and have met with good success. The coming month will probably witness a number of additional new flotations. The financial situation abroad shows further Improvement International friction is passing away. In London financial conditions are better and less uneasiness is shown over the large amount of new security Issues. British foreign trade is exceed- | ingly large- in volume and this it should be remembered is the main, source of British prosperity.

V IF W.VK SIIOCLD BE THE OITCOil EJ In all seriousness .It was e great ftktoe cf basket ball, the Topeka boys are sood plajers. Of course they are not in Ista'v class, but they certainly feavo our. team gbod practice. There was very obvious nerronsness at the lola end of the arena in the. beginning. Several th *ng2^ happened which ought not to have happened. But iu the setfond half, when the boy« had settled down to their old form, when they had realized that they could "hold 'em"—how they did play'.

Banks in Berlin have stood the recent financial strain satisfactorily and the situation there is gradually righting itself. Remarkable activity exisU in the German iron trade, which Just now is surpassing all previous records In output The German steamship business, like the British. . is active and prosperous, promising to pay better dividends. The German cotton trade, like that of England and the United [States, is being greatly assisted by cheap cotton. All Europe in fact is now enjoying a very fair degree of prosperity. It is hardly rational to suppose that the United States wlU stay long behind. This country has been taking an enforced re8( ' cure for nearly two years. Since the panic of 1907 conditions have never been entirely satisfactory. Liquidation, however, has been long and severe. Tlu re is less Inflation and more soundnesB than at any time In the last four years. At least a moderate recovery seems Justl fled. Business is already feeling some what Invigorated and seems preparing to try for a fresh start In 1912. h'hls is shown by the stronger undertone and the development of a more hopeful spirit. The chief drawback at Ibe moment arises from uncertainty ^t Washington. Big business has not yet recovered its equilibrium from the ^udden interference with Us former methods lOf doing business. The country Is wading deep in a period of reconstruction of its business machln- Ory, which Inevitably means temporary uncertainty as to what the national legislature may do. Nevertheless as the adjustment tojiew condl- itions becomes more complete there will be less complaint on this score. The world refuses to stand stiU. >0ur 4wn population is rapidly Increasing. Food, clothing and shelter are being required in increasing quantities. Our Irransportatlon facilities are overtaxed, and there Is eamast demand for in (ireased production and activity on all sjdes. . This demand cannot be Indefinitely ignored.
