Kansas, especially this part of Kansas, has had a long wet spell. The rain Lecan last Sunday morning at 2:35 and precipitation to some degree has continued, excepting at very short Intervals up to 8 o'clock last night. Tl;e total rainfall is 7.S4 inches. D'^spito the swollen streams ana f'ooded lowlands, the rural ronto mail "arriers have been able to make complete delivery with but little delay and no accidents or damage of con.«^ queuco I-as been reported. The sleet and slight I snowfall interferrcd somewhat with the efBclencv of thp local telephone service, but the system has been kept up unusually ^cH during the stornf. The railroads entering lola have had little trouble in operating trains and there has been but slight delay in tte train service. In Montgomery county, the excessive rainfall did much damage, the torrents sweeping away railway bridges and cutting off train service from Cherry vale to Coffeyville on the Santa Fo. In Western Kansas and Xorili- em Ok'ahoma there has also been much trouble resultant from tlie floods. Yokohama.

LUCCOCii, SISTER UF PEABL MASy, DECLIBES. 4ajs Pearson and His Wife Llred Together Happily and There Is >o i;rounds for Such a Claim. According to the Wichita Eagle, an /effort is being made by the relatives if Forrest .Mingle; alias Harry Park•»r: who is charged with the murder ot 'earl Mann Pearson, formerly of this nty. at Oklahoma City on September 'ih. to throw suspicion upon Harry- Pearson, husband of the murdered woman. MIngle's friends are endeavorink to ;how that Pearson was jealous of the iccused man. because he had visited he Pearson home several times. The article In the Eagle was read oday to Mrs. C. C. Luccock. sister of he murdered woman, and she stated •hat there was absolutely no grotind or such a suspicion. Speaking ot the matter she said: "Belne; a sister of Mrs. Pearson, f think I am in a position to know whether or not there is anything in such a claim. I can say positively that there- was no cause for any jealousy on tbe part of Mr. Pearson. He and his wife lived ogether without any trouble whatever. The fact that a few days before the tragedy Mr. Pearson invited Park- •ir to stay for dinner when be made a friendly call, shows that there Ja -lotbing to the charge made by Park- 'fs friends. They are grasping at Uraws for they know to whose guilt •he evidence points^" The Wichita Eagle says of the mat- rer. nUf Harry Pearson shoot bi« own wife through jealousy and then blame -he crime on Forest Mingle? Sirs. S. M. Stevens, sister-in-law of ••'orest .Mingle, charged with the mur- l»r of .Mrs Harry Pearson at Oklahoma Citv. September 16. believes this. She is supported by Mrs. Mamie Hoatli Mingle, wife of the man charged with murder. This will probably be the line of defense made when the comes to trial. ' .Mrs. Mingle and .Mrs. Stevens say hat they have facts that will tend to prove that Mingle, known as Parker, was with Mrs. Pearson: frequently and hat Pearson was extremely jealous. They believe that they can get evidence proving that Harry Pearson caught ill's wife with Mingle and shot her. Mrs. Pearson, they say. has •nade two or three dying statements, •aci of which in a measure, contra- •ilcted the other. Mrs. Minalc and Mrs. Stevens be- ievc that Forest Mingle faced the charge of murder, rather than have his wife know of his double personality and his associations with Mrs. Pearson. ', In this they say they are supported j>y several bits of evidence, which, when brought to light, may give the case another sensational turn.. . Mrs. Stevens believes that Pearson ..ailed until he found that Mingle had exhibited the diamonds and then put the police on the frail., Tbe story at the' prosecution insists \B^XW, .o the effect that Jlingle was located through the medium of a fortune teller .has been given little credence iniong reasonabfc persons. Mrs. Mln- |p says that the only bit of tangible . lidence that has been trumped up -igainst Iter husband is the flndinff of the diamond rings on bis person. .Vlbert Adams, a cousin of Mrs, Min,.e. is in Oklahoma City looking np . vidence to assist In . liberating Mln- 7le and implicating another party. gl $40,000 MORTGAGE Fi LED BY SHERBROOK CAS AND VITRIFIED BRICK CO.
