A Maniac in the Trench.
An officer writes about an incident
which Is probably one of the most
gruesome that lias been recorded of
life In trenches:
One night as a working party un-
der Lieutenant Ilnthbone was proceed-
ing down a communication trench, they
were fired upon from close quarters.
On Inquiry Lieutenant Rnthbone as-
certained that the shots came from a
soldier who had run amuck, and had
posted himself with loaded rifle and
fixed bayonet farther down the trench.
Lieutenant Rathbone borrowed a rifle,
and, accompanied by Corporal Feld-
wlck, advanced along the trench until
In view of the mentally deranged man.
They then advanced with rifles at the
ready; the officer calling upon the man
to surrender. Receiving no reply, they
then dropped their rifles and rushed
him, and after disarming him took him
to the nearest dressing station. Cor-
poral Feldwlck, who Is a prisoner of
war, has also been awarded the Albert
medal of the second class.
Which Is Wronfl, of Course.

Oil and gas leases granted to E. W.
Marland in 1912 were ordered adver-
tised for re-leasing under the prefer-
ence right by the state school land
commission by a vote of 4 to 1, Gover-
nor Williams dissenting.
Marland haB held leases on approx-
imately 109,000 acres of school land
for the last five years. He took the
leases and agreed to prospect them
%ith the understanding that he would
be allowed to re-lease such properties
as he wished to retain by paying the
amount of the bonus and rental offered
by the highest bidder. Governor Wil-
liams has opposed this preference
right by asserting that the law mak-
ing provision for it is unconstitutional.
Before the leases were ordered ad
vertised Marland filed a list of leases
comprising about 80,000 acres
which he announced he would not
seek to exercise a preference right.
Much of this acreage is in territory
which has not been drilled and drilling
on other parts has resulted in dry
holes. This will leave Marland in pos-
session of less than 30,000 acres,
should he obtain renewals under the
preference right of all his leases. The
leases he has retained, however, are
the cream of the acreage and their
value has been variously estimated in
the millions of dollars.
What Happened In February, 191#.
Something of a sensation was sprung
at the meeting when reference was
made to a resolution adopted in Ferbu-
ary, 1916, by which the lessees were
to obtain reimbursement for money
spent in drilling producing wells. The
cost of drilling the holes was to be
made a part of the appraised value of
the leases, and in the event another
company obtained the lease, the orig-
inal lessee would have to be recom-
pensed for the drilling, by provisions
of the resolution, which was in the
form of a contract to which the lessees
could subscribe. It was brought out
that Marland has subscribed to the
provisions of the resolution and thus
made a contract with the state.
Valuations placed on the improve-
ments on the Marland leases by three
appraisers named by the school land
commission were approved by unani-
mous vote, with the exception of
leases on which there were producing
wells drilled prior to February 24,
1916, the date of the passage of the
resolution. Governor Williams con-
tended that even under the resolution
wells drilled prior to its passage could
not be included in the valuation of
Here he rallied the support of How-
ard, who voted with him against ac-
cepting the report of the appraisers
on leases where old producing wells
were situated. These old wells, many
of them now nearly exhausted, now
hold no prospect of ever paying back
the cost of drilling the holes.
Among the leases on which there is
production, sub-leases are held by the
Cosden Oil & Gas Company, the Roma,
Sinclair and Uncle Sara oil companies
The most valuable lease appraised is
in Pawnee county, and is held by the

Belgian Hares As a Meat Product.
In these times of high prices of food
products, caused by the world war,
persons of all walks of life have looked
about for something that would take
the place of meat, and conserve the
supply and at the same time feed the
nations on a wholesome and nutritious
substitute for beef, pork and mutton.
The Belgian hare meets these re-
quirements as it is wholesome and
more nutritious than mutton, the
greatest of these. It can be produced
by far less per pounc than any of
these, and for less per pound than
the most scientific methods of feeding
and rearing of poultry.
At a meeting of Oklahoma hare
breeders recently, it was decided to
call a state meeting of all persons of
the state of Oklahoma on the 27th
day of September to be held in the
poultry pavilion of the Oklahoma State
Fair. An exhibit of hares will be
made at the fair where coops and feed
will be furnished free to all who will
join in making this exhibit a success.
All who are interested are invited to
attend and participate in this meet-
ing. John W. Nicely, superintendent
of the poultry department, will fur-
nish entry blanks and give any further
Information as to the exhibit or the
Seed Wheat Provided For.
The Oklahoma seed wheat question
has been solved. Tulsa bankers have
put up between $150,000 and $200,000,
according to F. C. Rounsevell, state
marketing commissioner. The raising
of the money, In which Mr. Rounsevell
was instrumental, means that 110,000
acres in the northwestern part of the
state, which otherwise would have lain
idle, will be sowed to wheat this fall.
Plans for the distribution of the
wheat will be perfected immediately.
It is expected that every farmer who
has land he can sow to wheat and
who is in a position to till it, will be
given seed wheat regardless of wheth-
er he can give security.
The farmers who can give a bank-
able note or who have any security on
which they can obtain wheat have
been taken care of," said Mr. Rounse-
vell. "Our plan is to aid the farmers,
who through successive crop failures,
have reached the point where they
have no means of obtaining seed."
Seed wheat to supply the northwest
ern counties, already has been con
tracted for in Garfield. Major and Kay
counties, has been inspected and soon
will be on its way to the planters

Buffalo Hunt Stopped By Sheriff.
Woodward—Under instructions from

and several panhandle towns in Texas.
Buffalo from a Texas ranch were
brought in. The hunters are Indians,
using bows and arrows. The order
