The meeting at the Stone
School House lour miles west of
Davenport, under the direction
of Pastor Daniels, and Rev. Mr.
Ford of the Pentacostal Church
of the Nasyarene has resulted in
:10 conversions and a goodly
number professing the blessing
of aauctification. These people
appear to be doiug their work
without the blare of trumpets.
There is a strong body in that
neighborhood. Supt. and Ma
tron Collins went out to their
meeting Sunday and the former
did the baptising. There were
9 adults, -1 women and 5 men
were immersed at 3 o'clock P.M.
These people are planning to
hold a tent meeting in Daven-
port, beginning Aug. 18 at
which time several of their abl
est men wi[l be on the platform
as speakers and singers.
The meetings in progress at
the Methodist church is enlarg-
ing. Every service is a good
one and conversions are witness-
ed under the preaching of Pro.
Edwards. The spirituality is
marked and both saint and sin-
ner are lifted in praise to (rod.
Davenport is being stirred as
never before for the glory of
God. Let all dome Thursday
night and make this closing ser-
vice count for a high spiritual
uplift to us all, Let god have
"right of way" and all the peo-
ple prais Him.

One of the very few native Okla-
homa fruits of value Is the sand hill
plum. This plum grows on the sandy
dunes which accompany with more or
less tho regularity the course of the
rivers in western and central parts
of Oklahoma. These plums have un-
doubtedly grown here for ages. Coro-
nado, tho Spanish explorer who passed
through this plains country over three
hundred and lifty years ago, speaks
of these plums and the refreshment
they offered. The bushes are low,
seldom rising over four feet high, and
the.v appear to thrive best in the thin-
nest and most sterile sand. Of late
years, cattle and other animals have
killed tUem out in many places, but
they still persist in many neighbor-
hoods. They are usually productive,
and no season appears dry enough to
injure them. All of the early settler*
In the prairie states remember these
plums as the one fruit during the first
few years when cultivated fruits were
not yet in bearing and money was In
most Instances too scaroe to have
fruit shipped In from tartner cast.
The quality of the sand hill plum is
difficult to judge. The fact that they
were usually eaten without any other
fruits competing for favor made them
seem all the better, and it is difficult
to convince an inhabitant of the pio-
neer days that there are any plums
of better flavor or texture than the
sand plums. As the writer remembers
them, they had a sweet rich flavor,
but were somewhat lacking In texture,
being soft nnd mushy. On this ac-
count they did not carry well and were
usually very uninviting In appearance
if put even on the local markets. They
are very easily transplanted. If
young bushes are pulled up In the
spring or fall and planted in the yard
or garden they will usually grow with-
out any trouble. They do not appear,
however, to be adapted to any other
conditions than those of the sandy
plains. Some years ago the writer,
who was then living In Missouri, se-
cured bushes of these plums which
were planted in the rich clay loam
which is found in certain portions of
the northern part of that state. They
grew vigorously from the first. Six
years later, when the writer left that
section, they were over twelve feet
high. They had not borne a single
Plum, and apparently had no inten-
t'r>' doing so as they would not
i lie botany of the sand hill plum
was for a long time uncertain. }lany
botanists for a time confused the sand
hill plum with the sand cherry
(Prunus pumila), a much Inferior
fruit which grows in an altogether dif-
ferent section of the country. Today,
however, the Prunu* watsonil is recog-
as an altogether different species.
Some botanists give it as a variety of
the Chickasaw plum, which it certainly
resembles very closely in everything
but the size of the plant.—N. O. Booth,

The two greatest Inventions of im-
portance to the dairy farmer are the
cream separator and the Babcock test-
er. By the use of the Babcock tester
the farmer ran tell whether his sep
arator is skimming clean and taking
out ;tll of the butter fat or leaving a
portion of it In the skimmed milk to
be lost. The farmer can also tell by
the Babcock test which of his cows
give 3 per cent milk and which 5
per cent. By the milk scales he can
tell which gives 3000 pounds of milk
In a year and which 8000 pounds. If
she gives only 3000 pounds of milk
and It contains 3 per cent butter fat
then the cow produces 90 pounds of
butter fat in 11 year. If she gives 3000
pounds and its tests 5 per cent then
she produces 150 pounds of butter fat.
Tender Oklahoma conditions the 90
pound cow would ho a "hoarder" and
loser to her owner, while the 150 pound
cow would produce a nice profit. Now
you see what the Babcock Test can
do in weeding out the unprofitable
cows and aiding in selecting the profit-
The Value of the Cream Separator.
The cream separator is one of the
greatest aidB that has come to the
dairy farmer. It has made possible
the extensive operation of dairy farms
In communities remote from the Imme-
diate vicinity of a local creamery. The
following indicates its great value on
the dairy farm:
1. By its efficiency over all other
systems of creaming, more butter fat
and cream of bettor quality Is obtain
able. Some manufacturers claim an
Increased profit of "$10.00 per cow per
year" by the use of the centrifugal
separator and undoubtedly this figure
Is approximately correct.
2. The cream separator 1b a means
of saving time and labor in the dairy.
This is on account of the loss of time
and labor required in handling the
milk, also economy of room for setting
the milk for the cream to rise which
is necessary with the old-fashioned
3. Less time, labor and expense is
required on account of trips to the
creamery to deliver the cream.
4. More and better quality of skim
milk Is obtainable and of a higher val-
ue for feeding to young calves and
The comparative losses of fat by the
various systems of oreaming are given
as follows, the per cent, given being
the approximate amount of butter fat
left in the skim milk by the various
1. By the shallow pan system 7.10
of 1 per cent.
2. By the deep cold setting system
2.10 of 1 per cent.
2. By the dilution of water separa-
tor 1 1-2 per cent (this is based on the
skim milk before the dilution.)
4. By the hand centrifugal separa-
tor 5.100 of 1 per cent.
