for building the court house, and
edifice and grounds (one of the best
and most convenient court houses
and most beautiful grounds in Ok-
lahoma) now belongs entirely to
Cleveland county, with not a cent

property, including interest on the
bonds, was approximately $52,000.

cial shape. She owes something

work in a natural way. The plant
was secured from North Carolina
and is an early winter variety. Of
the fifty plants used most of the
heads average from ten to fourteen
