Bowen today received a letter from lola regarding the Barnes appeal case. The case was argued over month ago, when the.court agreed to advance it on the docket and the Iota letter stated that a decision was looked for by Monday. This Is the only hope the Barnes High school law has, for If the court sustains Judge Foust's decision, as Is feared it may, there will be no county high school here and In other counties where contests have been made. IHx. Bowen is hoplne that a favorable decision will be handed down, but is fearful that the suiireme court may sustain Foust In the matter.—Ft. Scott Tribune. BOOKSELLFRS The OM Conuur • I. store.
