From the Lawrence Daily World for March 19, 1907: "The World has just been notified it is ranked ninth in the state from the standpoint of circulation. The World's figure is 3,778. No. 1 is the Topeka Capital, 21,299, followed by the Wichita Eagle, Topeka Journal and Wichita Beacon. : Emporia is soon to have natural gas.
