Worth a Trip To See It—Note Closing

The demand (or space in the live
stock section is proof that a big sale of
pure-bred stock is anticipated.by the
breeders, at the Oklahoma State Fair,
Sept. 25-Oct. 2.
The farmer who is going to improve
his stock this fall will find no better
opportunity offered, to not only choose
from all breeds, but to select from
dozens of each breed.
Oklahoma needs more livestock.
There is evidence of this on all sides.
Every farmer in the state should at-
tend the Oklahoma State Fair if for no
other reason than to inspect the thou-
sands of dollars' worth of hogs, sheep,
cattle and horses to be displayed

SKY MARAU:-R IN AIRSHAFT
Birds Cling Fearfully to Fire Escape
While Sparrow Hawk Hovers
A servant maid in an apartment on
the fourth floor of the Victoria, at
Riverside drive and Ninety-seventh
street, opened the kitchen window
Monday morning and wondered why
dozens of sparrows that were hud-
dling on fire escape and window sill
3id not take fright and scurry away.
Then she glanced outward and up-
ward into the airshaft and discovered
A sparrow hawk, sun glinting on its
wings, was wheeling rapidly high up
in the airshaft, but below the roof
level. Occasionally, when the marau-
der's keen eye glimpsed a sparrow
which hadn't taken refuge it darted
like a flash. Twice while the maid
watched the hawk made a capture and
soared out of the airshaft.
The air pirate worked for about two
hours and disappeared shortly before
noon, but it was at least half an hour
later when the plump, brown spar-
rowB recovered from the terror caused
by the hawk's appearance.

"It wouldn't be a bad idea," said
