M'ALESTER BRIDGE OPENED
A Cloud on the Jeffei* n Highway i
Raised After Opening.
McAlester.—The cloud which has
rested upon Pittsburg county as hav-
ing the worst piece of road in tire
state along the Jefferson highway was
recently dispelled. Thursday, July
11, the new Uains creek bridge said
to be the longest In the state outside
the river bridges, was thrown open to
travel thereby eliminating a detour by
way of old ramshackle bridge which
has long been a nightmare to tourists
and other traffic.
The opening of the new bridge July
27, was the occasion of a big celebra-
tion and barbecue participated in by
various towns and counties of the
state along the highway.
County trucks were chartered to
transport several hundred citizens of
McAlester, Viuita, Muskogee, Eufaula
and other towns to the north to send
delegations as well as many towns on
the highway to the south.
Canadian, lour miles south of the
new bridge, was host for the celebra-
tion assisted by the McAlester cham-
ber of commerce and Lions and Kot-
The opening of the bridge will cut
off several miles and will eliminate
grades as high as 16 per cent, reduc-
ing all grades , to a maximum of 4.8
The new bridge spans Gains creek,
two miles south of the Canadian river
bridge. It has required eleven
months for its building and an expen-
diture of $54,000. It is 366 feet long.

Legion Urging Oklahoma's Represen-
tatives To Push Bill.
Oklahoma City.—Oklahoma will rt
ive thousands of German shells, rim-
chine guns, cannon and other war
trophies, to be distributed to all coun-
ties of the state, if the house of rep-
esentatives will pass a bill authoriz-
ing such distribution, already passed
by the .enate. The American Legion
of Oklahoma is urging all Oklahoma
epresentatives- in congress to urge
the passage of the bill.
On May 2, the senate passed the
bill providing for distribution of the
trophies and war devices captured
from the enemy during the world war,
and the bill carried an appropriation
of $400,000 to carry out this plan on
August 3, 1921. An objection w^.s
made to the secretary of war distrib-
uting the material and to the appro-
priation of $400,000, the estimated
cost of the distribution, ihe bill was
e-committed to the military affairs
committee of the house. No action
has been taken on the bill sinoe that
El Reno.—Following a statement by
millers that farmers of Canadian
county last year lost $85,300 on 1,000,-
000 bushels of wheat, because of poor
handling after cutting, poor seed, bad
seeding conditions and late plowing,
movement has been launched by Felix
K. West, county agent, to stop the
waste through co operation m the mil-
lers and the farmers.
The millers will trade gootl seed
wheat, bushel tor bushel, for inferior
value of their milling qualities. The
wheat, with just the difference in the
millers will test free the farmers'
wheat for protein and baking qualities.
An association will be formed to aid
this work. The millers say that the
farmers lose from 10 to 15 cents a
bushel by raising inferior wheat, an«
they are anxious to co-operate to stop

Ardmore.—A series of livestock
judging classes will be started in Ard-'
more and surrounding towns within
the next few weeks, according to J.
W. Simpklns, county agent. The clas-
ses will be open to all persons and
will last one day each under the tute-
lage of Simpkins and O. L. Putman,
assistant county agent.
The classes are being held to pre-
pare the boys and girls of the county
for entry to the livestock judging
contest which will be held at the an-
nual county fair. Winners of the con-
test at the fair will be awarded free
trips and will enter a similar contest
at the state fair at Oklahoma City.
the military whom he had uld-
ed, usurped the head chieftainship of
the Brule Sioux, his high-handed act
was bitterly resented. Chief Crow Dog
(Kangl Sunka) took a vow to kill the
head chief If ever he disgraced the
name of the Slchangu (Brules).
Years passed. Spotted Tall, drunk
with power, misused his high otllce for
personal ends. His people murmured
but were powerless. Then he coveted
the wife of Medicine Bear and, covet-
ing. took her. Crow Dog, a relatlvo
of Medicine Bear, remembered his
vow. On August 5, 1881, he met Spot-
ted Tail and shot him dead, after
which he gave himself up.
He was tried at Deadwood, S. D.,
convicted of murder and sentenced to
he hanged. Crow Dog asked permis-
sion to say farewell to bis family,
promising to return on the day set
for the execution.
When Crow Dog did not show up the
next day, Indian police were dispatched
to get him. He was not at home and
his wife told them that the chief had
wished to return to prison alone and
would surely keep his promise, The
next day the chief walked Into the
Jail at Rapid City. "Crow Dog say
tie come," was his laconic reply to
Ihe surprised greeting of his jailer.
Meanwhile efforts were being made
to save his life by a stay of execution.
Ills case was carried to the Supreme
court of the United Stutes which ruled
that the federal courts had no jurisdic-
tion over crime committed by one
Indian against another on a reserva-
tion. So Crow Dog walked out of
prison a free man.
Ten years later Crow Dog was in
the limelight again, as one of the
Brule leaders who lied from the Rose-
bud agency during the Ghost Dance
aze to Join the Ogallalas In the Bad
Lands. The Brule chief was soon con-
vinced that their cause was hopeless
ind he counselled surrender.
But the Irreconcllables were still
eager for war. They caught up their
rifles and threatened to shoot those
who wavered. Seeing this Crow Dog
drew his blanket over his head. "I
do not wish to know who would be
guilty of slaying a brother Dakota,"
he said. His words so impressed the
warriors that civil war was averted
and the hostlles sullenly filed into the
agency to surrender.
It was Crow Dog's last war trail.
From that day he lived in peace on
the Itosebud reservation until his
death August 12, 1!)12.

forecasts of a decided break .in the
ranks of anti-flour buyers in the east
and a decrease in stocks to about the
lowest consistent level east of Miss-

brokers, that make frank admission
of the situation, say that virtually no

for lower prices.
Oklahoma millers are almost a unit

At the time he was captain of the In-

MeCllllcuddy In face of the bitterest
opposition from Red Cloud's Ogallalas.
The last great Sun Dance of the
Sioux, held at Red Cloud's camp in
1881. was attended by 10,000 Ogallalas
and 2.000 Brules from the Rosebud
reservation. One morning a Brule
chief called on McGillicuddy and in
a most offensive manner demanded
food. The agent ended the Interview
by kicking him out of the door. Wild
with anger the Indian rode away
threatening to kill every white man
on the reservation.
MeGlllicuddy had only nine white
men with him at the time, and al-
though Sword and bis 100 policemen
were near at hand, they were an un
known quantity when it should come
to fighting their own people. But the
agent was not long left In doubt . Sud-
denly a hand of Indians, stripped to
war bonnet, breech clout and inocca
sins, dashed up to the agency. It was
Sword and his policemen. They had
discarded their uniforms and In Ihe

to come to death grips wllh their own
