Fnt Under Arrest and Will Be Tried in April for Htsdemeanor; Out on BalL. Topeka, Kas., Jan. 16.—Because he refused this afternoon in an Inquisi tion held before Attorney General Daw son to name "the small Kansas town' about which he wrote of having seen beer sold openly over a bar, J. E. House, a Topeka newspaper man. was arrested on a misdemeanor charge filed in the Shawnee county district court by tbe attorney general. House immediately gave bond In the sum of 9300. House will be tried before a Jury probably at the April term of court. The penalty is a fine of not more than 9300 ' or imprisonment In the county Jail for not more than ninety days or both^ The attorney general had put this question to House: "Please give the name of the town and tbe county In which it is located where beer was being sold openly over a bar In the slate of Kansas within the last two years, to which you had reference in the newspaper article published by you In June. 1911." House declined point blank to an swer. In reply to the Attorney General's questions Mr. House said he had lived in Topeka about ten years, is a newspaper man add writes for tbe Topeka Capital and a weekly syndicate letter for eighteen or twenty Kansas newspapers. "Do you recall," said Attorney Gen eral Dawson "a piece which you wrote In June, 1911, In which you said 'the writer spent a portion of an evening In a club in a Email Kansas town In dry territory where beer was sold cpnly over a barT " Yes," said House, "I remember It very well." - Then followed Dawson's final question and the refusal to answer. •Dawson asked C. W. Trlckett. the governor's attorney. If he had any questions to ask. Didn't House write something about conditions in Lawrence, Leaven worth, (Atchison and Emporia?" asked Trlckett. Trlckett then framed a question asking House ir ae knew of violations In those towns. "I decline to answer," was House's reply. According to my best knowledge of the statutes," said Dawson, "you, Mr. House, are entitled to 75 cents as witness fees." Do I get my money now?" asked Mr. House smiling. Dawson laughed and put a'dollar on the table. House handed back a quarter making change. Mr. House," said Dawson, "why is It that you refuse to answer and tell of this matter?" It Is simply that if I should answer any of the questions put to me," said House, "I couldn't square lit with myself. I resent tlie fact that a newspaper man Is not permitted to write that sort of a thing without being hauled up. My idea Is that If I turned Informer I couldn't square myself with my own conscience." "It is not, then " asked«lr. Trlckett, because you might Incriminate yourself?" "Not for a minut.e" replied House. Sam Bishop of Lawrence, who was the governon's attorney In the mandamus action to compel Dawson to subpoena House, was In the room. Dawson Invited Bishop to ask questions. "Was there any truth, Mr. House, in the article you wrote?" asked Bishop. "I decline to answer," was the response. "Was it merely a newspaper article, or was it a fact?" As a newspaper man," replied House, "I've tried for twenty years to build up a repiitatlon for truth and veracity." I assume, then," said Bishop, "that It was true." You can assume anything you like" replied House. "I decline to answer." Would It Incriminate any club to which you-belong {o tell?" asked Bishop. - "1 decline to answer" responded House. THE OEATH OF J. E. KOOBY Aged and Well-Known Besident of Allen County Died Last Mght J. E. Hobby, one of^the oldest and best known residents of Allen County, having resided in or near Moran for the past thirty-ilve years, died last night at the hospital, at 10:20 o'clock, where he had been taking treatment for the past three months for a malignant and Incurable disease with which be had been suffering for the past year. Mr. Hobby was a man of sixty-eight years of age, and this together with the nature of the disease, precluded any hope of bis ultimate recovery, although twice once about two months ago, and another time about a month ago, he underwent operations designed to render his condition more bearable. D. G. Hobby, a brother home Is in Albion, N. Y., was at the bedside when death came. Mr. Hobby is survived by no 'other immediate relatives, with the exception of a iister, whose home, also, is in Albion, N. Y. Mr. Hobby's long residence in this section, and his 4 >rogres8ive. enterprising character had operated to make him one of the most prominent farmers of the county, and he was always prominent in tbe affairs of Moran, having once been mayor of that city. Several years ago he retired I from farming, and since then he has made bis bonie in Moran. I The body will be shipped to Moran Fridsv morning.'and the funeral will be held from the Presbyterian church I in that dty Friday afternoon at two AT A $20,000 Stock of Pianos to be Sold in OUR BIG ANNtJAL CLEARANCE SALE Now in Progress All sample styles, rentalSjjdiscontinued styles, shop-worn and used Pianos must positively be sold within the next few days.

STORE OPEN EVENINGS. lOLA, KANSAS THE MEN'S MEETING INTEREST I>TREAS1X(J I\ SEE- VICES AT BAITKST CHrKCll. Rev. Moomaw and Rev. Prather Delivered StlrrinK Appeals Last Mght —Another .Service Tonight. There was another fine meeting of men In the First Baptist churcb last night. The pews were nearly all filled and a choir of some twenty boys, led by Rev. C. F. Johnson led the singing. Chairman Jones, of the evangelistic committee of the Men and Religion Forward Movement, was in charge and Rev. Otho Moomaw and Rev. Ira B. Prather delivered the addresses. Again the ministers traveled right alongside the^nan In their dally life. They talked of the every day problem of faith and communion with God. If a man can't sec God and can't hear him, what's the reason? He has professed religion he experiences the desire to live a pure life, he participates in the services of the church so far as he finds himself able but when he closes his eyes and kneels in prayer, what does he see? What does he hear? What does he feel? Is there an un- fathonable distance between him and God? Docs black space veil his eyes? Does he fail to hear a response to bis pleadings and is it because he im CHILDREN INVALIDS -"Jjhe AGED Need Sunshine -AND- Scott's Emulsion Next to sunshine, nothing restores health, strength and vitali^ like Scott's Emuision ALL OKUOalST* /U-3S I aglnes God Is so far away? These were the questions that the preachers were answering last night and' they are' the questions which are flooding men's minds today. Faith, said Rev. Moomaw annihilates space and brings one into touch with the Infinite. He told how the greet railway magnates, James J. Hill and E. H. Hariman, had projected great railway systems on faith and had clung to that faith until it brought realization If these men. demanded the preacher, could look out into thousands of miles of space and see the possibilities of a great railway system and could build on that faith mile by mile unty the line was complete, why it is not possible for the Christian to look up to his God and see Him and hear Him and behold the things He has wrought. "I was once a telegraph operator," said Rev. Prather, "and I have never forgotten the combination of sounds that mean words to me. Occasionally, I stand at the open window of the tele graph station. The instrument Is clicking off its dots and dashes. I hear the conversation or the message as it passes along the wire. There are others standing noar n.e. They hear the sound but they do not understand. It Is I)ecause they have not learned to understand the messages of God.- The ojiportunity to learn them Is here. Let us gather closer to the open window and hear G(Mi as he speaks to us." Rev. Prather told of his conversion. Ho told how he had became a Christian when the members of his athletic club and classes were non-Christians. He told how he expected he would be gibed for his action but Instead, he was respected. The deck of ct^rds, the poker game and bad language some way, were always discarded m" his presence. God will be very near to us and manifest his presence, said the minister. If we will accept Hlmi It was a very helpful service and showed promise of perceptible increase. At 7:30 tonight there'll be another service for men and boys only in the same church. A cordial invitation is extended to every man and boy in this city. Two speakers have been chosen to address the meeting. Card of Thanks. We de.sire to thank our friends and especially the high school Junior class for their l^ndness and sympathy 8ho«-n us during the illness and death of our son, Ju^.

JOHNSON FOOND NOT GUILTY Colorrd -Man Arqnlttrd of Charge by Jury. .Serious EUis Johnson, a well known young colored man of this city, was found not guilty of a statutory offense by a jury In the district, court this morning. The jurors deliberated all night before reaching a verdict. Johnson was arrested last fall on Information furnished by Dora Smith, a colored girl. He was tried at the last term of court and the jury reported that its members were unable to reach an agreement. The second trial was begun in the district court yesterday morning and the case submitted to the jury late in the afternoon. The court room was stirred with a sensatiucal scene during the testimony of Dora Smitb. Col. J. B. Goshorn, who with Col. J.B. Atchison, defended Johnson, was questioning the girl on the witness stand. Some of her answers failed to satisfy the Colonel and he repeated the questions. "Mr. Go.shorn "' exclaimed the witness, "I donn told you that once. Now listen: I'll toll you once more and that's all. Understand? And, If you don't quit treating me this way I'll come down there after you." And the girl shook her arm vigorously at the Colonel. WHEN HIS VOICE CHAXOED. ".My l.">-year-old' son" says Mrs. 1. C. Sherman, whose home is in Brooklyn, "caught a bad cold just when his jSoice was changing and could not get rid of It forabout a year. VInol was the only medicine that did him any- good and it was just what he needed to drive his cough away andi build up hl.s strength." If he had taken Vinol sooner, h» would have been spared a whole lot of annoyance and suffering. I Bronchitis—cough is simply a slgti of bodily weakness. When you build up the bodily strength and enrich the blood and Vinol, our delicious cod liver and iron preparation without oil,the cough is bound to disappear. It is really the only natural and right way to get rid of these bron-; r.-hial coughs that hang on so long. In all weakened and run-down conditions o fthe body, whether in men, women or children. Vinol la exactly w hat is needed to Ijring back strength. We guarantee to sive back your money if Vinol does not he'.p you. S. R,'; Burrell, Druggist, io!a, Kas. BREAKS IP A SEVERE COLD.
