BUPPOSED MURDERED HAN IN
Had Been lilted as One of Myste-
rious Victims in Joidin—Charged
Jopliii, Mo., Dec. 11.—Instead of
being a corpse and his body buried
in "mystery row" without having
been positively identified, John H.
Harris who was thought to have been
mysteriously killed a few weeks ago
and his body thrown in a shaft on
the edge of the Kansas City bottoms,
I is very much alive. In the opinion of
the Christian Volunteers, he is en-
tirely too active, which accounts for
that he is under arrest charged by
a an officer of the organization with sol-
4, ^ iciting funds and provisions for the
I Volunteers without authority. Harris
was arrested last night by Patrolman
Stevens on complaint of Major B.
iM.Philips of the Christian Valunteers
who will swear to a warrant this
morning charging Harris with obtain-
ing money under false pretensse.
According to the major, Harris
was a former member of the Volun-
teers, but fell from grace in St. Louis
recently and has since refused to re-
linquish a commission giving him
authority to collect funds and pro-
visions for the organization.
"We have had several complaints
about Harris soliciting funds," the
imajor said, "and as a last resort we
had to notify the police to arreBt him.
He has been working in Joplin, Alba
and Sari Junction. Perhaps it isn't
a Christian spirit to have to arrest
him. ibut we had to take some means
of protecting ourselves."
WANTED—Boarders and roomers.

! OFFICIAL STANDINGS AT LAST.
President Shively Will Tell W. A.
Magnates Where They Belong
J ^ One of the important features of
the Western association meeting at
* the Baltimore hotel in Kansas City
\ next Tuesday will be the matter of
) determining the standing of clubs.
No two papers in the circuit agreed
last summer in the standing, and it
is doubtful if any of them carried
it correctly. To satisfy a general
demand, President Shively yesterday
cmompiled from the official scores a
record of the games won and lost
by the various clubs and will present
the same to the meeting Tuesday.
Ilie figures show no great change,
except in fourth position.
According to the official score sheets
and President Shively's figures Bar-
tlesville and Sapulpa are tied for
the tail end of the first division.
There are several protested games on
file with the president, which, if de-
cided contrary to the official scores,
might change these clubs in their
The board of arbitration of the
Western association will be asked to
; consider perhaps fifty protests, al-
though it is hardly probable any ma-
terial changes will result in most of

This week I want to call
your attention to my line
of hand-painted dishes
I which are now. on dis-
play in my east window.
Back in the days of pri-
meval man dishes and
other modern convenien-
ces and sanitary necessities were an
unknown quantity. The dawn of
civilization found man taking his
meals from a piece of bark stripped
from the trees. A little later flat
pieces of stone served his purpose,
and so on down the line of progress,
civilization and refinement to the
present day which marks the millen-
nium in the matter of cleanliness and
sanitation, the day of beauty and
comfort, the age of economy and saneness. But enough of this.
If you want something beautiful at a bargain call and see our
line of Decorated China. And wo have lots of other things, too.
