FOOD FOR ORPHANS DONATIONS TO lOLA HOME STILL COXING IN. List of ThanksgWlBg Dajr Deaors Still lBcomplet«^A List From tbe rtty Schools. The above were drawn at the county clerk's office this morning by Sher Iff C. O. Bollinger, Justice C. 8. Pot ter and Jastlce EL O. Hougb, as the regnlae'^t^yra for the January term whliir^fllU'tBe seenifi Tuesday of the mcHttta. '^A glance at the list shows that by some remaricable prank of chance fifteen of the Jurors were drawn from lola city and Osage town ship, nine from the former and six from the latter. This Is an unusual occurrence,-one townsbip seldom getting more than two or three Jurors at the most Osage township, however, qnlte frequently- ^ts two or three and hardly ever falls to be represented on the Jury. Cottage Grove, and Logan are two townships that only occasionally are represented on the Jury. The January docket- will hare the usual number of cases. Probably the most Important action will be the Heaton case. Mrs. Arlle Heaton is charged with the murder of her dl vorced husband. Clint Heaton, last July, fflie Is now out on bond, living with her sister, Mrs. O. E. Learn ard at iBartlesviHe. It Is understood that the case will be ready for trial at the January term.

The board of managers of the Iota Orphan's Home is still busy making an itemized account of the donations received from the city and county schools on Thanksgiving day. Several wagon loads of provisioas were de llvered at the home and it is no small task to check them up and tabulate the returns. Mrs. L. F. Palmer, president of the board of managers, this morning gave out an itemized list of the contributions of provisions. The donations are not credited to the several city ^choo^s which made them for the reason that one of the schools failed to attach a name to its donation and in the confusion resultant the checkers lost track and finaliy decided to merely report the contributions in bulk. The list from the clii. schools follow: Three gallons of beans, sugar 8 pounds of rice. 3 pounds of coffee. 2\i pounds of tea. 4 sacks of xalt. 39 bars of soap, 2 cans of canned beef, 441 cans of assorted canned goods, 40 klnsses of Jelly, 46 packages of breakfast food,. 4^ bu8he:8 of apples. 2 bushels of turnips, 2 pecks of turnips, 7 bushels of potatoes, 2 quarts of cranberries, 20 pumpkins, 6 chickens, 1 duck and 2 turke.vs. There were 21 |>ackage8 containing miscellaneous articles of food including crack ers and cookies. This report does not include the donations from the achoois of the county.

Wheeler claimed that he entered In to an agreement to trade a piece of land foT 11800 worth of stock in the cement company but that the Monarch people refused or neglected to carrj* it out. The cement people claimed that the agreement was made with Wheeler by one of their agents not having authority to consummate such deals for them. The trial of the case occupied nl of yesterday and about an hour last night after supper. The evidence closed about six o'clock.

Edd!^ Shannon is a little colored boy living in Bassett., Some time a$o he was arraigned in juvenile court on the charge that he could not be controlled by his mother. Trouble with his school teacher was the direct cause of his being in court, however. After hearing the evidence Judge Smith found that the boy should be sent to the reform school. The mother was not satisfied with the decision and appealed the case. Meanwhile the boy was in Jail. Steps were taken in the past few days to have the tried in order that the boy might not be left In Jail anylonger than possible. Judge Poust had a number of cases set for today and tomorrow and so arranged for a night session.,it being the firs? for many months. Mrs. Shannon went on the stand last night and stated that she could control the boy and did not think he should be sent to the reform school. Several white people from Baflsett went on the stand and testified that they did not think Eddie was espoc- ially unrully. However, the boy's school teacher testified that she had (rouble with him and that -he had resisted correction, throwing some kind of a mtssle at ber. After hearing the evidnce Jud?e Pousi took Ihe casM under advisement. One of the Jurors In the \\'Tieeler case was asked tliis morning if the Jury room, which Is located In the upper'Story of the court house, wan cold last night and he replied that It was warm "as toast." all of the Jurors taking off their coats, entirely un mindful of the cold snap which made it uncomfortable for many families over town.
