IN POLITICS - A FAIR
DEAL FOR EVERYONE
DEVOTED TO THE IN-
TERESTS OF ONE OF
THE BEST TOWNS IN

DAVENPORT, LINCOLN COUNTY, OKLAHOMA, THURSDAY, OCT. 26, 1911.
L.00 per year
5,000 Free Votes in the Contest
A Special Opportunity
Here is an announcemeut that
will interest every girl nominat-
ed in the big piano contest.
From now until November 4th,
at 5 p. mv we will give 5,000 ex-
tra votes for every $10 turned in
for subscriptions in the contest.
\ ou Will get the regular votes
you are entitled to and 5,000
This unusual opportunity pre
sents a chance for all candidates.
The close of the contest will
come almost before you are
ready for it. The object of this
paper and Profit ible Farming is
to gain circulation, especially is
this the object of Profitable
Farming. And when we find
thai the territory has been thor-
oughly solicited by the candida-
tes, we will announce the close.
It is difficult -natter to get all
the candidates to realize that all
have a chance to win the period
prizes and one of the three Grand
prizes. The piano will be given
to the girl haying most votes,
just as certainly as though the
fortunate young lady had the
instrument in her house now.
iS'o one knowsi who ill get it;
but it will go to someone. The
girl who is quickest to see and
appreciate that lively work and
the most votes will win, is the
one who is most likely to win.
These contests are largely a con-
test of will power and hustling
ability. Some will stand back
and feel that such a thing as
winning a piano free is too good
to be true, but some girl will at
the very same time jump in and
make it true by winning this
Keep your eye on the contest
eackueek. Read every word
of each ad. Think of these
grand prizes and of the many
minor presents. Can you afford
to miss them when they were
sent here especially for the can-
didates in this contest.
The piano which will be
awarded to some girl at the close
of this contest arrived this week
and is now on display at the Red
Cross Pharmacy where it may
be seen and tested by all who

DEEP FORK DITCH KNOCKED OUT
About the largest crowd of deter-
mined men that has met at the court
house this year is the crowd of Dry
creek tax payers in drainage district
No. 'Z that met at the office of the
county commissioners last Monday to
protest against the digging of the ditch
under the plans and estimates as made
and published by the viewers.y It ap-
pears that when the Dry creek people
signed the petition to establish the
ditch, it was under the goverment es-
timate of $14,(XX) for the ditch and in-
cluded but very little entirely new
The estimate as published by the
viewors is $105,392.50 and many of the.
farmers regard this as confiscation.
The opposition was led by Philip E.
Mann a land owner and an attorney
who has had 15 years experience as a
Mr. Mann opposed the postponment
saying that as long as proceedings were
pending a cloud rested on the title of
every foot of land involved.
On the suggestion of Mr. Collar the
tax payers went to the district court
room and effected an organization. W
W. Haker was elected chairman and W.
R. Smith as secretary.
The following petition was presented
to the commissioners by the committee:
"Be it resolved by the land owners
of Dry Fork creek organized and in
meeting approved, that we, request
the Board of county commissioners,
that all of the pro&edings in the Dry
Fork drainage district No. Two, Linco-
ln county, Oklahoma be discontinued
Said proceedings and the report of
board of viewers not being in accord-
ance with the original petition for the
formation of said district and the or-
der of the Board of commissioners.

R. E. MANN
In the afternoon the petition was
presented and the question of accrued
costs amounting to $2,600 arose and
was discussed. The railroad attorneys
present were quizzed and stated that
they thought the railroads would be
willing to pay their proportional part.
The publication notice was by many
believed to contain two fatal errors.
There were some errors in assessments
and Sunday the 22nd instead of Monday
2-1 rd was named in the publication as
the day of meeting. An order was
therefore made quashing the service
This action had the effect of post-
poning any action until the report is
republished which will probably never
