"Plant kaflr corn," is the advice
of Secretary Ben Hennessey of tlu-
sta te board of agriculture to farmers
whose winter wheat was killed on
account of late planting, and who
are looking for a good spring crop to
take its place. The condition of
the soil never was better he says,
and the fields are in splendid shape,
for a banner spring crop. Secretary
Hennessey said, Friday:
"Word comes from the wheat
country that many fields of wheat,
put out late, were destroyed by lack
of vitality in the plant. When the
heavy snows came the plants were
not able to withstand the cold.
This condition will leave these fields
in splendid shape for a spring crop.
"The experience of the last two
years has been something of a dis-
couragement to farmers in that re-
gion, as pertains to spring crops, es-
pecially corn, and many of theni
will plant kafir in case the reports
of late wheat conditions are true.
' Kafir finds its natural home in
Oklahoma soil and it would seem to
be the proper and sensible thing fot
the farmer to have some one pro-
duct on his farm, of the success of
which he is absolutely certain.
"The katir corn thrives best, of
course, under the best growing con-
ditions, but when these do not pre-
vail, it is a sturdy warrier that de-
fies the elements and demands
recognition as a success in all sea-
sons. "Different from corn, it folds
its leaves during the hot windy
days and through this folding shades
the tender portion of the plant.
When night comes with its moist
winds the plant opens and gathers
the moisture and is equipped for
auothers day's battle with the
"The prevalent idea that kafir
corn is a Held pirate and robs the
soil of all of its plant food is erron-
eous. Experts have long since
proven that it takes no more plant
life from the soil than does corn,
and a number of others of our sta-
"Kafir has been forced to with-
stand much contempt and ridicule
but as time goes on, it is coming
into iis own inheirtance, and the
Oklahoma farmer who has tried it
feels that it is a 'shelter in the time
"On the experiment farm of the
A. and M. college during our driest
season this crop made 56 bushels
per acre, and even with very little
attention paid to it there would be
no difficulty in getting an average
anywhere in the state of from twen-
ty to thirty bushels. There is no
reason why with a little care it
could not be brought up to the
same production as on the experi-

The program rendered by the
members of the W. C. T. U. at the
Congregational church on Sunday
afternoon in commemoration of
Francis Willard Memorial Day was
enjoyed by a large attendance.
Those taking part in the program
did unusually well and much ap-
preciation was accorded them. Quo-
tation irom Miss Willard were given
in response to roll call. A song by
Miss Nettie Liddle was rendered in
pleasing manner. A biographical
skeivh of Miss Willard by Mrs. A.
W. Darrow was interesting and well
presented. Mrs. John Duffy, in an
intersting and impressive manner,
recited the poem of Kathrene Lent

Willard. An original paper by Mrs.

Contrary to expectations, Hen-
nessey will be obliged to elect a new
board of trustees this spring, if the
construction placed on the new
election law, enacted at a revnt
session of the legislature, i< c irreet.
The folliowing appeared in a
recent issue of the Oklahomau un-
der a Guthrie date line:
"In a lengthy opinion to the sec-
retary of the county election board,
in answer to a query regarding the
recent law adopted by the state
legislature which it was thought did
away with elections in cities and
villages thisspring and cut the rep-
resentation in the city council half
in two and also provides for only j
half iis many members for the
board of education, holds that the
law will be interpreted wrongly in a
number of instances and that the,
elections shall be held as usual on
the second Tuesday in April.
"All appointments which have
been made vacant for any reason
expire, and the holder of the offices
which have been made v icant for
any reason expire, and the holder
of the office must be elected by the
"Mr. Adams states that the law
is not absolutely clear regarding the
electiou and that the entire matter,
will eventually have to be decided
in the courts. However, Mr. Adams'
only course is to advise the board
to hold the election, and then, after
it is held, there is plenty of time to]
get into court

Our Remarkable Offer
Despite the inclemency of the
weather, over one hundred persons
were in attendance at the social
given by the lady Owls on Monday
night at Block's hall. An excellent
program was rendered, both Nests
of Owls participating. A source of
much laughter and merriment was
the kangaroo court wherein W. A
Walbrun was plaintiff and T. E.
Howard, defendant. The charge
was stealing hay, and the case was
decided in favor of the defendant,
by Judge J. W. Humphreys, who
presided. H. C. Fitch was attorney
for plaintiff while David Martin ser-
ved in like capacity for defendant.
Partners for the appetizing lunch
were procured by the drawing
of duplicate numbers. A unique
way of deciding the price to be paid
was the amount of twice the size
number of the shoes worn. The
evening was very much enjoyed
throughout as have been all previous
entertainments given by this sub-
stantial order, which has a large
membership in each Nest.
