(""Mitel V RNER .EATEN Chicago Firm Got Big Start Toward Clean-Up, But Were Caught Napping When Corn Soared. Chicago, May 29. Fireworks on the ' board of trade, the nickname for an exciting: episode in the speculative pits wound up the crop year today, but the display was altogether different from what had been expected and It looked as If the chif manipulators had been singed. Contrary to prediction It waa corn and not wheat that Jumped skyward. Furthermore the chief owners of wheat who had been looked upon as likely to extort artificial profits from stubborn or otherwise foolish shorts. were caught napping as to corn, and had to pay more or less fancy prices for as much as a million bushels. In the last few minutes of trading, corn Tushed up to seventy-four cents a bushel for May delivery an advance of 2 l-4c compared with the night before.' On the other hand, wheat finished at a net decline of l-8c to 1-4 at 3-8c. Promised government investigation as to why May wheat notwithstanding the present flattering crop outlook, had been held seven cents higher than a year ago was regarded by many people as largely the cause of the leniency shown today In the pit toward the wheat shorts who seemed virtually at the mercy of one big firm that had acquired five-sixths of all the wheat available In Chicago for delivery on contracts expiring today. The fact that the same big firm was in a way dramatically takeh captive at the moment of what appeared a magnamious triumph "or shrewd forbearance was regarded as an incident for which there has perhaps never been a parallel here on 'change. QUEER CATCH Prairie Chicken Flew Over Man, Then Fell With Broken Wing It's In Zoo. How many people know how the city secured the prairie chicken in the soo at HiveTslde park? For the information of those who do not know, It was given the city by C. I Roady of 718 South Elizabeth avenue. Mr. Roady was walking along a country road when five prairie chickens flew up near him. They flew several rods and then circled back and as they passed over his head, one of them fell at his feet. He thought something was the matter with the bird and after chasing it through the grass finally captured it. He found that It had a broken wing. Mr. Roady brought the chicken to Wichita and gave it to Commissioner K. M. Leach to put In the too. Several people saw the bird before he gave it to Mr. Leach and he was offered a large sum for it, but he refused. He is now hoping to secure a mate for the bird as prairie chickens are fast becoming extinct in Kansas. 0 Ho nor St earns Local Knights Templar Give Reception of Eminent Commander.

THE HOLMES CO. 211 East Douglas Store closed until i p. m. "There's No Place Like HolmeC "GASSER" HAS MANY GUESSING Mrs. T. P. Hayes, Whose Husband Made Strike on St. Francis Avenue Cooks Egg Over Flame. DIG ANOTHER WELL LIGHT OF FIRST J BY Old Time Citizens Recall That Half Mile From Hayes Well City Bored "Dry' Hole. Either Wichita has the shallowest gas well in the west or an apparent Impossible leak from a main is mak ing a host of citizens think so. When the Eagle announced the first of the week that a gas well had been brought in in the fifteenth block on North- St Francis avenue nine out of ten per sons thought the news report a mis take. But recently citizens have awakened to the possibilities of a gas field being located under the city and which is feeding shallow wells. But old timers are skeptical. They call to mind that half a mile west of the "gasser" on St. Francis avenue the city spent a lot of money on a dry hole. Working on his second well by light furnished by gas from the first one, T. P. Hayes, 1649 St. Francis avenue, sunk his new well fifteen feet farther yesterday. Mr. Hayes dropped a match down the second hole last night, and the explosion 'that followed was so violent that he was knocked to the ground. The sand in which the pipe of the second well is being sunk is so loose that blows from a sledge hammer are sufficient to drive the pipe into the gTound. The depth reached is forty-five feet. Mr. Hayes Intends to sink this sec ond well as far as he can in the loose sand. He wishes to ascertain the depth of the strata of sand which out crops on his land, and so will drive the pipe through it. When he has succeeded in getting this pipe as deep as he wants it. he will draw it and then decide what he wants to do with the well "The flow from the first well seems to be getting stronger," . said Mrs. Hayea last night. "I boiled an egg over the blaze of this well yesterday morn lng, and am sure that if I had it in my house I could do the family copk ing with it. Since the gas was first lighted Thursday morning, it has never gone out. The tin can that was placed around it has protested the flame from I the wind, and gas is still comnia: out of the well."

Manager Says City Hall Is Playing , Politics With Ice Ordinance. CLAIMS IT IS COPIED AFTER : - ad. Manager Says Intent of His An nouncement Sunday Was . Worked Into Ordinance for Political Effect. The City Ice Delivery company, of which C. F. Anderson is manager, announced laet Sunday, mdrning through The Eagle that i it .would compel de-liverymen to use tested scales and weigh ice in the presence of the cus tomer if requested. The delivery company handles practically every ' chunk of Ice placed in the homes of Wichita.' In doing this the company aimed -to give added protection to its customers, as the officers of the delivery company realize that, among scores of employes, a few dishonest men might be found. Imagine their surprise, then, when yesterday they Tead in The Eagle that the city commission had drafted an ordinance to compel ice men to do what "the delivery company had announced it would require. The ordinance is worded to mean exactly what the delivery company's announcement says. "Someone at city hall Is making politics toy submitting such an ordi nance, said Mr. Anderson yesterday. In our advertisements we have aimed to tell the people of Wichita of the effort we will make this summer to supply them with clean ice and give them full weight Misunderstandings often arise, but if any customer is not satisfied with the treatment accorded him, we want to know it first Reparation will always be made. "As to the weight of ice delivered, we say that if a careful average for the season or foT even a shorter period be taken by the customer he will find that he has gotten all the ice that he has paid for. It is not always possi ble for the "dTiver to cut the ice so that all parties get exactly what they order. One piece will be over weight. another under. If, however, one person ia given a short-weight piece one morning, that will be made up the next ' . - - "Scales, tested and sealed by the regular scale Inspector, are hung on each wagon. Drivers are instructed to call attention to these scales and to the certificate which accompanies them. Ice will be weighed at the re quest of a purchaser always. In case a man feels he has been receiving short weight more than he ought, a complaint to me will assure him that the matter will be adjusted. "Most kick originate because of supposed short weight A'customer usually thinks that the big chunk is of the correct weight and that he should get one every day."
