J Hkving for our theme the story of a Kwii which has celebrated its GOxh ann versary, we will doubtlesB omit mai; y things which would be of interest (o (he readers of the Capital, for Humboldt truly has a history, having beei twice liurned and once disor­ ganised; in fact the school work of this town is unsurpassed. T( > the unaccustomed eye Humboldt presents the appearance of a health reso-t. Its cool shady trees,' brick paved side walks beautiful residences iind well kept lawns excel those of any own of its size in this part of the Wesi. The people of Humboldt are exceptionally refined and educated, fheir new : ;chnols and large new opera liouse are the pride of this town unsur- passf d. Upon entering Humboldt, one is St nick Dy tlie quietness and'order that prevail, little thinking that in >le33 than a mile fro^ the cityrls lo- oate(! one of the largest oil tankfarms in th» world, owned and controlled by the standard Oil Company.

N^r Mapleton, Kansas, onla day last week, a farmer lost about six horses in le^s than two hours timi and the deaths wiere due to the ergot poisoning. Mr..

Swollen glands about the neck, brittle bones, weak eyes, pale, waxy complexions, running sores and ulcers and general poor health, are the usual ways; in which Soofula is manifated. In some cases the blood is so filled with the scrofnloos germs and tabercnlar mattet that from birth life ia made miserable with snSering.

Attorney J. B. Gosborn a short time ago brought .suit in the'^ federal court against the company to^compel it to pay the paid up |1000 policy of John T. Weatherby of Gas Crty. Mr, Gaih- orn tbe other day received a letter from the company saying that tbe eom pany still had funds in! Missouri and that there was probably enongb'to pay off all clairoa wtUch coqld bo proven. The Home Co-Operattve oompaay several years ago had many pollelM held by lola people. \Vhen tbe company went into Imnkniptcy, the lo|a Btodkholdcrs joined their clalma and turiied them over to T. E. .Martin, tbe local agent for the company, to bring suit for "mh, instead of tbeir filing separate aalta. Before Mr. Martin had accompUahed that work, death claimed bim. Mrs. Martin took up the suit where her bus band had left off. The suit was. however, dismissed in the district court with prejudice. The company bos suggested to Mr. Goshom that, if tbe lola policy holders will assign their interests orer to ome other party, a second suit migbt be brought and the lola.pplfcy holders secure a part of their money. ~.
