Was Banner Cotton Day
About $7,500 Worth of Cotton
Brought to Hennessey
Last Saturday -..as the banner
cotton day so far this season, f rom
every direction wagons piled high
with the snowy product begin to
arrive in town in the earlv hours of
the forenoon until the intersection
of Main street anil Oklahoma ave-
nue was a moving mass of wagons
of cotton, intersperet d here and there
with wagons of hogs, corn and
wheat. Cotton farmers from the
neighborhoods of Marshall. Lovell,
Columb'.a, Dover, Lacey and a big
territory west and northwest took
advantage of the better prices being
paid at Hennessey for cotton by
bringing their product in. The price
paid on the local market has been
invariably higher than paid by buy-
ers in surrounding towns. The
prices paid Saturday ranged from
#2.70 to #3.15 and at least $7,500
worth of cotton was handled by the
four Hennessey gins on that day.
The A. E. Lane cotton gin stood
high, Saturday's cotton purchases
amounting to about 80,000 pounds.
Tiiis gin run nearly all night and
then quit because they lacked room
to store any more seed. Houghton-
Douglas gin took in about 60,000
pounds and the Hennessey gin about,
J 40,000 pounds. The Fanners' gin
| bought about 70,000 pounds of tin !
1 staple. Thus the total number ol |
pounds bought by the four gins on
this one day soars to the enormous
amount of 250,000.
Much corn was brought to town
but as a great deal of it was sold
to other farmers, it is hard to esti
mate the quantity.
Farmer Woolwine Takes
Premium on Kaffir Com
l)r Roland Woolwine who re-
cently moved from here to his claim
near Buffalo, Harper county, Okl.i.
secured second premium on his
kallir corn exhibit at the county fair
at Buffalo last week. He would have
received first premium had not tin
doctor's eye for the beautiful
prompted him to select samples of
varied hues and was counted out on
lack of unitormity in color.

Mrs. Thomas Hope was thrown
from a buggy and rendered uncon-
scious for a short time Saturday,
while coming to town with her son-
in-law, Marion McGee, from his
farm home northwest of town.
It seems two team with loads of
cotton were racing and one team
was either crowded or run into the
McGee buggy with such force that
the occupants were thrown out, Mrs.
Hope striking on her head. While
she was badly shaken up and suf-
fered considerable pain in her head
for several days, but it is thought
no serious injury will result. Mr
Rev. J. H. Parker McGee was uninjured excepting

Water Rights Granted
Big Irrigation Project
Water rights were granted to the
Cimarron Irrigation company by-
Ben Hennessey, secretary of state
board of agriculture, last Saturday,
for their big irrigation project in
There were some remonstrances
filed against the proposition by
parties who are irrigating on a small
scale below the proposeed site of
the big dam who feared that the
dam of the irrigation company
might curtail the amount of water
now used by iheir system and claim-
ed they had prior water rights, lhe
secretary decided that the propossd
plan would not infringe upon the
rights of those installed and granted
the water right for the big company.
The proposed, irrigation system
will be the biggest of the kind ever
attempted in the southwest, and
will cost near three million dollars
when completed. Work is expected
to begin soor.
