Only a Partial LUt of Donorx Ready t romplete Tomorrow—A I^bor of Lovp. Following a beautiful custom which has been In vogue for years, the public sdiools of lola and the general public yesterday made one of the largest Thanksgiving contributions to the lola Orphans home In the history of that institution. As a result, the eighteen Uttle ones which are in the home have a large supply of pi^ovia- lons In t*« larder and a generous balance in the treasury. "A complete and accurate account of the donations of money and provisions received at the home for Thanksgiving cannot be made today." Mrs. L. F. Palmer, president of the board of n >anager8. said this morning "We have compiled only a partial list of the donors for the reason that the reports are not yet all in. A complete list will probably be made up ready for publication tomorrow. However. I feel that public interest In thin Thanksgiving contribution Is so groat that we ought to tell the people the amount of provisions and money which we have received up to date. I believe that when the reports are all in that the summing up will show that the home "fas received one of the Inrg- est donations in its history and for this we are truly thankful." School Puplla Ganeroua. Even an accurate or rather a com- :ilete accounting of the money recelv- t^d from pupil sin the public and country schools cannot yet be made as a pumber are yet to be heard from. One of the gratifying- features of the Thankaslving day gift to the home was the apparent happlnesa found In being of service to one of the^ moat worthy Institutions exemplltying Ood's fatherly love. It seemed that the faces of the Children in the schools took on a look of ecstatic joy as each little upurned face gazed at the teacher and. each little outstretched hand held out Its gift. It was a labor of love. It was a giving that appealed to the children and made them better and happier for it. And perhaps a thrUl of satisfaction ran through every man and woman as the order was given, "send this to the Orphans' Home." As the giver painted a mental picture of the wonderment, the joy of eVery little homeless one In the care of fhe lola home, it must have been that a heavenly uplifting was felt and there flashed through the mind, "Inasmuch as ye did It unto one of these, my children, ye did it unto me." OBSERVED THE DAY lOI.A CHrRCHES IMTED i> TllAVKSfilVI >0 SERVH'E. Sermon by Rev. A. V. Hamilton—A Fine CoIIeetion for <»r|>i>'i>''* Home.

But it must be remembered that tfte gift of money does not constitute th^,whole of the school pupil's gen ecouB contributions. Wagon loads of provisions from each rofcm in every school in lola, were delivered to the home by the pupils. The donations consisted of almost everj- kind of fruit, vegetables and meats. Mrs. Palmer is working hard on a report of this today and expects to have It ready by tomorrow. But from the returns which she has ready, it Is cleaned that these donations were most generous. The Bassett school did Us ^iiare as well as the rest, send Ing donations of canned goods and ^ vegetables and a quIlt which wa6 V, ou'lted by the Mothers' club, of Has- 'sett. « % f Country Schools Coming In. Mrs. Palmer has begun to receive reports from- the rural schools and the news Is most encouraging and gratifying. From the Silver Leaf school. Miss Dennis, teacher, this donation was received. Seven pumpkins. chickens. 5 tiecks of popcorn. 1^ bushels of apples, 7 pecks of turnips. 5 quarts of fruit. 3 quarts of peaCS preserves. 1 quart of jam, 1 quart of best pickles. 6 jiecks of potatoes, 1% bushels of com. I peck of walnuts. I ^< pounds of butter. Then from the Horvllle school. Mrs. Owens, teacher, came a big fat turkey.5 cans of fruit and just a whole lot of big red apples. Mrs. Pal mer doean't know yet Just how many. The pupils of Prairie View school, district 39. thinking .that all the kids mif ht take a notion to send chickens and turkeys and provisions and that t ^ere would be no money, sent a crisp $5 note as their gift Miss Ora Card teadies thla achool. Town Folk* Are Generous. The grownup kids, who have long since concluded sending in their essays and studvlng "Joggeffy," remembering the little ones in the home are glTinc liberally. Mrs. Palmer hasn 't a complete list yet and if you gave to the home and your name does not appear in the list given, you si^ould not feel slighted. Due credit will be Siren. But as symptoms of what the list will look like when it appears, it can be mentioned that Archibald Jones sent the manager of the home bis au- tograidi on a Cteck that is good at any bank for $5. Otto Hinze had a ^fine big turkey that he thought he could we'l spare for the little tots in the home and be ordered bia deliverv man to take the finest bird that could be fonad In ibts pen to the orphans. Then again, Oroeeryman Readlcker was aa buay as be- could be. but be tebid time to thialc of tbe little ones his delivery wagon drew up to the dojor of the home with a fine lot of belt canned good*. inent. ' la the ThanksglvlDg sermon. Rev. Hamilton presented an old theme In a new way. It was the old gospel iu a new light. He iwinted out the multitudinous reasons why " everybody should be thankful, eloquently and with force. Following the theme and connecting so that It appealed with power to the hearers, the minister took up The question cf -Sunday observance, tein-per.-tnce and kindred toi>ics. The sermon was inspiring and helpful and was heard by a large congregation. At the cIo.«e of the sermon. Rev. W. H. .Garfield, pastor of the Baptist church, made an apjieal for the lola Orphans" Home, following which a collection was taken by Kev. Garfield and Rev. Eliett. The amount is reported as J11. .IB. Theiclosing prayer was offered by Rev. W. H. Shults. pastor of the Reformed church. The Salvation Army had no especial part in observing Thank^iving day.

Fair child addressed the Teachers" Associ atibn at the high school auditorium this morning, speaking upon the subject of "Needed Chang <Rs jn Laws for the Certification of Teachers." He spoke entirely on the recommendations that the educational committee appointed by the state teachers' association would make to the legls'aturn relative to changing laws governlnp the work of teachers. The adtlress was a very Interesting one. tne teachers listening attentively throughout. One of the recommendations spoken of by Superin- tenden Falrchlld Is that of changing the iiunfber of cerliflcates. having but liree, first, second and third grades, instead of having four, the profesaion- al. first, second and third grade. The i)lan is to embody In the first grade f'le essential reqtiirements of the professional. Another recommendation IH that of nut Issuing a third grade certificate to a teacher more than three successive years. The purpose of this is to induce teacher's to no Improve as to get hlsher grade certificates. Another Is to grant no certificate after 1911 to n teacher who has not 'had two years in the high school or its equivalent. These are among a few of the rec- omroeiulations taken up liy Mr. Fairchild In his discussion this morning. After the debate this morning on the question, "Resolved,, that the County Normal InsttttUe as Now Con ducted in Kansas Does Not Pay." ^ role" wast taken'as to which .side of the question won, tlie yeas and nays being about even. lead and head to come At noon Prof. I..

More are coming iu today and with the pupils that will attend the contest here tp- raorrow fully 1200 out-of-town people will have been in attendance at the convention when it close.s. The program of the association opened last night with a masterly address by President Hill of the Kansas State Normal. Prof. W. O. Thomp<«on. president of Ohio Stale University, was to have delivered the ad- Iress. but of illness In his family was unable to come. Though much regret was expressed when it was learned that President Thompson would not be here, yet those who heard President Hill were more fJian pleased. The speaker baought a fine message to the teachers. He believen that the SiUenUon toward the Individual pupil Is being lost In too hnuch attention to the machinery of the school. He told of the good results brought about by or^aniitation and system in fhe school but Insisted that better results would be obtained when more attention to the individual wa.s given. He then discussed the elements that make up a good teacher: first a wealth of knowledge, second a nower to invigorate life with know- edge, third the ability of tho te.ich- er to substitute himself in the place of the pupil, and fourfii to rise above <;e<f -conBclousne8S. Dr. HIU's ai'dreaa was enjoved by the good audience that heard it. Dr. Hilscher'pave the address of welcome o the T'sitlnF teachers while music was furnished by Miss Clara Crangle, Mr. W. G. Anderson and the high school quartette. A fine program will be rendered this afternoon and tonight. .Mr. Vincent of Chicago university is to lecture at four o'clock and also' this evening. The music contest will occur tomorrow morning In the Grand theatre.

'.JT.—Bishop Williams's edict on bare heads and low necked gowns was observed by society women of Omaha who attended he wedding of Miss Nathalie Merrlam and Barton Millard at Trinity cathedral 'ast evening. Bvcrj- head was covered and there were no decollete gowns in evidence. In asking that women who attended the wedding would come with their heads covered the bishop made the request "that all right minded women dial I obey the rule of the church rather than the behests of fashion as to seemly and modest apparel In the bouse of God." which 'was Interpreted as meanins that decollete gowns were not desired. Tbe bishop disclaimed any desire prescribe what women should wear on tbeir beads beyond what tbe reqalremeota of Cbristiad courtesy Cor other people demand as to sight Because of superior team work, more careful training, better knowledge of the game, and tbe masterly generalship of Captain Ad Brennan, the Triplets yesterday defeated the Chanute Go-Devlls In one of the ihard- est fought and best played football games played in southeastern Kansas, by the score of 12 to 5. Whew! Ain't she a dog fight,' gasped a Chanute fan as the twenty^] two active but brawny athletes struggled up and down the gridiron with an expression of "never die" spirit written on their sweaty faces. Ftom the kick off it was apparent fhat it was to be no tame affair, but a "dog fight." if you pleaBe. Years of Intense rivalry added to the zest that belongs to every football game. Six hundred strong, cheering their favorites on to victory, the lola delegation spurred the Triplet heroes on. Fight- iiig to win victory on their native soil and In the presence of hundreds of their couptrymen, tHe Go -Devlla exerted every energy and exercised ev ery tactic they possessed to win the day. The game beginning late and the halves being twenty-five minutes, the sun went out of sight, the new moon came out, while approaching night rolled the bodies of the valiant glad! iitors in its shades before the com iKit cloned. But 'hardly a spectator left the ground, although the dark ness became so intense that it was al most im |K )sslble to distinguish the players. The excitement ran so high that whenever a warrior fell and there was the slightest reason to believe that it was through a fell hand, the crowd pressed against the wire, hungering to.] rush out on the gridiron. Toward the last when I.#slle Campbell, (.take off your hnt to the name), stoo<l confronting a Chanute player in What appeared to be an unfriendly attitude, pandemonium broke loose and the thousands of enthusiasts swarmed out on the ground. When it was learned that no persona] encounter had taken place or was likely to take place the crowd went back behind the side line again. Never had a team a better field general and all around food football player than the Triplets have in their captain. Add Brennan. Through his ability to make the forward oass the Triplets gained much ground. Myler Atchison, "Wg Atch." full hack, was good for from one to ten yards every time he was called up. When occasional'v a member of tbe Go-Eevils' back field managed to get t'rrous'h the Triplets' almost stone wall. ".Atch" was there to stop the plav. Atchison was'backing up the line. Warren Allen, the star of the 05 and or, high school team, nlayed his usual star game. His tackling was spectacular. To I.,eslie Camnbell, heretofore practically an unknown quantity because he had never played against the best t».^ms in rhis state as had many of tho other players, must be elven much praise for he not only played good consistent football but starred. Wbldo Coffman not only outplayed his man but succeeded in gettine tbroutrh th<» Go-Devils' heavy line and blocking several punts and stopping many plays. The guards. Hiner anl Deiat, were all and more 4han was expected of them. Like Coffman. many tlmea thev went through fr.p enemy')* line and broke up plays. The wav Rav Jones. Bab as he Is known to his fellow players, held the terrible Rowland, was good for sore eyes. His work was a feature. Street, the old reliable, was up to the standard In every part of the game. He not only made good gains but opened holes through which a wapon could be driven. To Harry Barlter deserves the credit of both touchdowns. He is one of the fastest ends In this part of the state. Sam Ellis, the man who Chanute was going to put down and out in less than three minutes of play, deserves fte credit along with Captain Breman with making the forward pass a success. Nearly every time a forward pass was called to tis end he managed to get away from Clark, the ODDOsing end, long enough to catch the balL He not only was good with the forward pass but played a consistent game io other respects.

Oillenwater and Huweii. whom he arrested iu this city a few days'ago, charged with the assault upon Special Agent Webb of the Kansas City Southern, are both bad nien and that they are not only highwaymen cf some note, but that they are bank robbers, and he is now working upon a clue to connect them with some recent robbery, which he does nor believe is very hard to do. He has i)hotographs of both and will investigate the case thoroughly. Both are natural looking criminals. There have been many bank robberies around here within the last six months and lie will use every endeavor to trace the crimes to the two men now in jail-at Nevada. According to the Nevada papers, the officers .here are being criticised for not being diligent, the i>apers claiming fhat they were notified of the matter right away. The fact is the chief was not notified by the .N'evada officers that.the assailants were he.ided this way. The chief Jjad been on the lookout and they were arrested by description. The two men were arraigned in ustice court and eaCh pl^ded not guilty. Their preliminaries will be held at a later "date. In default of ball they were remanded to jail. Parsons.
