The attending physician rei>orts that Miss Marie Gifford who was accidentally shot yesterday morning at ^her born* three miles north of .lola ~*when a shot gun which young .lames Adamspn had leaned against a chair, fell and discharged its contents into her right thigh, is doing very well. It was thought for a time that the bone had been splintered, and that amputa- .titm would be necessary, but these fears have now been dissipated and unless infection should develop, there will be no danger of permanent injury.

A petition asking that a new sewer dlstric%-bi jeFtablished In the northeast part olf lola was filed with the city comml^f.'on at Us meeting yesterday aftemobn.

Barton, former city editor of the Register, who with Bert Harris is now owner of the Herington Times, ,wIU arrive In this city Friday afternoon to spend the holidays visiting 8 B4 P. S . MitcbelL Tlip Register frankly that it is disappointed. It had no doubt but that a simple notice that a list had been iirejiared of poor children who could have no Christmas unless it was brought to them from outside their own poverty-stricken homes, would be enough to bring in scores of men i.'ot only willing, but eager, to play the part of Big Brother. And last night we only heard from TWO! And both of them wore i>oor men, one of them a day laborer, with children of his own. Today one man came in and took over one family where there are four cliildren. But what are the rest going to do.— tlie rest of the children we mean? When you were a little kid, did you ever wake up on Christmas morning, —after you had lieen dreaming for weeks about the wonderful things that Santa Clans was going to bring yoi'.—and find nothing—NOTHING— in your stocking? If you did ,do you rememlier hew you looked in the second stocking, after you found the first one empty to see if the tilings hadn't been put in it? And when tli:'t wn? found us puipty as the other, dont you renifmber how you looked alT around the bed. thinking mnybc-lhc trift had been too big to gef In the nocking. And then, when you found nothing, don't you know how you went bark to the stockings and turned thtm wrong side out still hoping that in .some mysterious way the gifts would appear after ail? And then— don't you remember how the world came to an end? If you never had that kind of an experience get down on your knees and thank God I And then go and pick up your oyn little kidlet. if you have one, and talk to him about what he expects to get for Christmas, and watch his eyes shine as he counts the things over— and then shut your eyes and imagine :u)w ho would feel and what he would .-ay and the bitter, bitter tears he would shed if he should wake up Christmas morning and find his stock lugs empty and nothing for him anywhere! And imagine how YOU would feel. Of course you don't have to do this thing through the agency of the Reg- iettf. Call up Mrs. Jones, if you would rather, or Mis. Cofield, or Dr. Shadwick, or any of the other officersi of the Associated Charities. The Register is only acting for thcin, and has no interest in the nmtter on earth- except to see that there is something In those stockingsl Dante's Inferno, real moving pictures gotten up to illustrate scenes frojii Dante's book of that m»me, will be shown at the Grand theater tomorrow. Friday and Saturday nights. It Is .said tliat the cost of making the pictures was $IOii,000, and those who have seen them vouch for the fact tiiai they are unusually well gotten up, and are very impressive. On account of the fact that the scenes take up .0000 feet of film but one show wlli be held during the matinees and at night. Ten cents will be charged during this engagement only C. E. Newton has received an ur- usually fine Christmas present in Vr: shape of a Spitz terrier, "Ony," until lately the property of George Wilhite. The dog is B very valuable and heaix- tiful animal, and knows as many tricks as a dog from the Gentry show. Among its many startling stunts is the trick of walking on its front feet —which is rarely seen except in a "professional" canine. : (n.v the A-sMoolriled I 'renit) .New York.

At the suggestion of Dr. Lyman Abbott and Dr. Mary Eddy, an American woman who has spent many years in Turkey, President Taft took under advisement today the matter of tendering the good offices of the United States as mediator in the Turko- Itaiian war. Drs. Abbott .ind Eddy spent more than an hour with the president, urging him to take some .iction in the matter.

No further developments in the mystery surrounding the injury sustain- 'd by Mrs. David Kinser, of 211 North vValni:t street, and the subsequently liscovered fact that a gold band ring which she was wearing at the time ;he su.siained the injury ia missing^ lave come to light. Mrs. Kinser, who has now almost fully recovered, and vhose mind is now perfectly clear and •ntiona'. still maintains that she did tot fall from (he porch, but that sbe '.vas assaulted by a negro, and the 'act liiat the ring .which she wore constantly. and which was never removed from her finger, except witl llfflculty, was discovered later to be nisslng. lends to her declaration an 'ir of truth.
