FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 21, 1SC3. COFFEYVILLB WEEKLY JOURNAL, COFFEYVLLLE, KANSAS. THE BAS IS ALL GflflE HARTFORD CITY, IND, PEOPLE BURNING COAL AND WOOD. AND THE WHITER IS COMING Shivered Last Year With Little or No Gas Worse Than Ever Now Coal Bin and Wood Shed, Hartford City Gazette: Right now the fuel question is uppermost in the minds of most Hartford City people. Winter is coming on and very rapidly too. Within a month some very chilly blasts will be blowing and it's quite natural that the mind and eye should turn to the coal bin, wood house and gas line. Thus far the price of coal has not been advanced, but there's no telling when the "barons" , will get busy and boost the figures on the necessity which they control. Quite a number of Hartford City people are feeling pretty comfortable over the situation. They are the ones who have a bin full of coal or a well-stocked woodshed. Some are hanging in the balance on the gas question. "To be or not to be " is the query with them. The majority of this class is found among People's stockholders, who have had so much free gas for so long that they just can not turn loose. The first cold snap will probably settle the question. The Crescent company is making no glowing promises, although its service last winter was fair and much better than the Peoples. They brought in some new wells this summer, but none of them was anything to brag about. There is only one sure thing, that is, that -winter is coming and you had better be fixed for it in some way. Hartford City people have shivered and frozen with gas for several years now, but there will be less of that this winter than ever before. They are gradually getting back to wood and ccaL After a heavy meal, take a couple of Doan's Regulets and give your, stom ach and liver and bowels the help they will need.

Further investigation in the case oi Charles Wallace, who is now said to be in jail at Hutchinson, discloses the fact that he victimized two or three persons in Coffeyville before leaving. A short time before leaving here, Wallace leased a watch of C Berst of South Walnut street, paying $1 on it a,nd agreeing to pay $1 week for a certain number of weeks wEei he was to. have the option of paying the remainder of the. $45, the price of the watch, or turning it back The young man paid $1 on the watch and a few days later sold it to anoth er party and left. Mr. Berst has not heard from him since. His mother, however, has paid a small part of the amount due on the watch taken by her son. Mr. Berst has written to the chief of police at Hutchinson asking in regard to the charge against Wallace. If it is a small one, the young man may be brought here and tried on a mora severe one. . Chavl-io Ilarbourt was also beaten out of some money by 'Wallace. The young man had had several checks cashed by Mr. -Harbourt and in every case they proved to be good. A day or so before he left Coffeyville, he cashed a check for over $20 which afterward proved to be worthless. The young man took advantage of the ac- commoration to beat Mr. Harbourt and Wallace may be tried on this charge WENT BACK TO OHIO.

Here , is Coffeyville testimony to prove it: Nathaniel Cheney, retired farmer, of Mo West Eighth street, Coffeyville. Kan., says: "I can vouch for the merits of Doan's Kidney Pills. For a number of years I have been subject to spells of pain in my back and a weakness of the kidneys caused me much annoyance. I could not go down town and be gone more than an hour before there would b a desire to p the secretions. They were also accompanied by a scalding sensation- Some friends were visiting us and they spoke highly of Doan's Kidney Pills. I went to J. S. Lang & Sons drug store and got a box. I continued taking the remedy until I had used three boxes, and to say that I received great benefit is speaking the exact truth.

EIGHT DISTRICTS. TAKE FROM THE A THIRD Also the First and Second Districts and Give to the Other Five 3 Counties From the Third. Topeka, Sept. 18. An attempt- will be made at the next session of the legislature to more equitably distribute the population of the eight congres sional districts.

The politicians in 1 other districts are not satisfied with the result and will ask the next legislature to make a more equitable distribution of the population into congressional districts. Population of Eighth District. The Eighth district has a population t of only 140,956, while the Third dis trict" has nearly twice as many, 277,-119.

When the Kidneys fail to perform their functions properly by not straining put the poisonous waste matter from the blood as it passes through them, the poisons are carried by the circulation to every part of the body, deranging the different organs. This causes heart trouble, stomach trouble, sluggish liver and a host of other ills, all due to deranged Kidneys. : :TY . : Ji uJiyA jI . Jim likii uyykli corrects irregularities and cures Kidney and cuhed of cmcirrs disease. L Mr. Robert G. Burke, EInom. Saratoga Co., N. Y., writes: X am glad to feava an opportunity f telling what magnificent results I have had fsora using FOLEY'S KIDNEY CURB after having tried other advertised medicines and several physicians. Before' I begaa "it X had to get up from n to 20 times each night to relieve my bladder: X was all bloated up with dropsy and my eyesight was so impaired that I could scarcely see one of my family across the room. In fact, 1 was so badly used uo that I had given up hope of living when I was urged by a friend to try FOLEY'S KIDNEY CUKE. One 50-cent bottle worked wonders, and before I had taken the third bottle the superfluous flesh had cane, as well as all other symptoms of Kidney trouble. M fnends were surprised that X was cured, as they all thought I was going to die. Every few days some one comes from miles away to learn the came of the wonderful medicine that cured me of Bright' Disease, and not earn that has triad it b&s failed la b benefitted. - m him a district in which he would' have very little trouble for a- number of ; years. v Mrv Scott's suggestion thar Wyandotte be thrown into the ? First and Shawnee be put into the Fourth is hardly practical, unless more coun- ities be removed from the First- The district now has a population of 214,510 and Shawnee has a population of .58,655 while Wyandotte has a population of 103,931. The result of this change would increase the population of the First district by 47,000 and it would be necessary to put Nemaha and Jacliscn into the Fifth in order to equalize population. This would make the Fifth district larger than, it ought to ha and. some. of. the' southern conn-ties, such as Geary, DIckinsoft and Saline; would ha,ve to go to the Fourth, Eighth cr Seventh district, according to their geographical location, in order to equalize the population of this dis-$ trict. j Tn order to exactly equalize theL population the central districts such as thi Fourth. Fifth and Eighth must stand for the big changes in geographical complexion. Phillip P. Campbell, representing the Third district, has nine counties. Six of these "are manufacturirg centers and the others. Elk, Chautauqua and Cowley, are farming communities. Mr. Campbell would be willing to lose the three agricultural counties and would then have the best manufacturing district in the state. Starving to Death. Because ner stomach was so weakened by useless drugging that she could not eat, Mrs. Mary H. Walters, of St. Clair street, Columbus, Ohio, was literally starving to death. She writes: "My stomach was go weak from useless drugs I could not eat, and my nerves so wrecked that 1 could not sleep; and not before I was given up to die was I induced to try Electric Bitters; with the wonderful result that improvement began at once, and a complete cure followed."

Those who visited the Whitaker j building early Monday morning saw a series of matrimonial decorations out side " the office of Dr. L. H. Trimble." The reason for the placing of the decorations was discovered later when it was learned that Dr. Trimble and Miss Ella Le Moine had been married at Independence Sunday. The cere- presence have rooms in the Whitaker building. Both Dr. and Mrs. Trimble are well known in Coffeyville. Dr. Trimble has practiced his profession, that of an oculist and optician, for "some years and in this time has built up a large acquaintance. The bride is an ac- jcomplished musician, a graduate of the New England conservatory of music and a successful teacher. She has a large class of music students both here and at LenapaTi Dr. and Mrs. Trimble are receiving the congratulations of many friends today. Married.

The Coffeyville schools opened again Monday after a vacation of four months and some two thousand school children began their tasks again. The enrollment of the schools promises to be larger than at the beginning of school last year. The work of enrolling began last Monday but many waited until the first day of school and the office of Superintendent Sinclair was filled with pupils waiting their turn to be assigned a place early all day. For this reason it is impossible to give tne correct total enrollment for the first day but Superintendent Sinclair estimates that it will be right around 200S. Last year the enrollment for the first day was about 1800 and before the close of the wreek it had grown to 1920. The enrollment of new puipls indicates that it will be considerably above the 2000 mark by the close of tha week. It was quite apparent to people on he streets Monday morning that school had begun. Hundreds of children were seen along the streets and in the book and stationery stores the ordinary customers were pushed aside to make room for the children who were laying in supplies of books and other school room necessities for the winter. Miss Alice Wilkinson of Emporia, who was elected to fill the vacancy caused by the resignation of Miss Ayres, arrived in the city Monday morning and began her work. J. H. Davis, the new principal of the Whittier building, arrived from Lebo, Sunday evening and took up the work at his building Monday. All the regular teachers "were in their places at the opening of school with the exception of Miss Vivian Atwood of the Gar-fieM3ui.ldinki who was called to No-waraT&HaTteTid the Childers murder trial. - ; . -The pupils of the higher grades of the Washington building and the high school students are attending at Brown hall and the lower grades of the Washington are dividing time with the same grades at the McKinley. It wilt be necessary to change the arrangement in some of the rooms. At theT Longfellow, one room had twenty more pupils than there were seats in the room. These difficulties will be overcome in a short time and the work of the schools will be well under way by the last of the week. The Ingalls school is not ready for pupils and after the enrollment, school was dismissed until Thursday, when the regular session will be begun. FOR THE STATE MEETING. G. J.
