Pcnca City Courier: A fakir was
in town today selling a thing to wash
windows. He said it was the most
wonderful ever placed on the market
for the small sum of one dollar.
Later we discovered that the same
thing could be purckased at a half
dozen places in town for fifty cents.
The moral to this story is that if
you don't want the fakir to sell to
your customers you better let them
know about your wart.-.

Mayor had been asked to make the
address of welcome to the delegations
and had prepared, on the part of our
'citizens to give them a warm and
hearty welcome. On account of his
being very busy helping entertain
and accomodate the republican visit-

address, which he with due respect,
had consented to do. Mr. Whitting-

The Superintendents of County
Board of Health of the committees
of Oklahoma met at the offices of
Dr. Cowdrick, superintendent of pub-
lic health of Oklahoma, with Presi-
dent Baxter of Guthrie in the chair.
Nearly every county in the territory
was represented at this meetiug.
The purpose of this meeting was
stated by Secretary Cowdrick, after
which an address was made by the
president, greatly complimeting the
counties boards for their most ex-
celent work done by them during the
past year. Many points of interest
were taken up and discussed and dis-
posed of to the satisfaction of all
Many topics touching the law gov-
erning the boards were talked upon
to some extent and plans were laid,
by which a unity of action of all the
boards, may be had. Taking into
consideration the rapid growth and
the lack of sewerage in the territory

that could have been asked to do such
honor Mr. Faubion, Mayor, went
before the convention yesterday
morning and announced that the city
would be represented: but this per-
son would not let our courtesy be dis-
played. He said: "No. Mr Faubion,
we will attend to this ourselves, we
do not need your representation here,
we have arranged this convention to
our own satisfaction and you are a
little too late." It is reported that
Gov. Ferguson said that they did not
j want to be greeted by a Democratic
Mayor or a renegade republican.
Of course, we, as a city, have the
highest esteem for our neighbors,
and r.u sot feel as though we have
been .. owed to show our apprecia-
tion for the honor shown us, by giv-
ing ti - the convention; but neverthe-

such an ignoramus and will pass this
by as nothing more nor less than an
act of h\ ;>>cracy.

Wants His Wife Released.
Oklahoma City, o. T., June 26.—
Judge B. F. Burwell, of the district
court, in the matter of the habeas
corpus proceedings instituted by J.
L. Short, to secure his wife from the
custody of his mother-in-law and
others, has set the case for hearing
on June 30, and has ordered that a
physician shall be called to give the
proper medical treatment to Mrs.
Dr. Short's petition alleges that
his wife, Wilhelmina Short, is detain-
ed by Wilhelmina Sanner, Nellie
Babcock and Mrs. Reece, who have
confined her in small and poorly ven-
tilated quarters where she is not giv-
en the proper care; that she is men-
tally weak and under the influence of
the persons who have her in custody;
that said persons are conspiring to
get possession of a small estate com-
ing to his wife from Germany; that
they refuse to permit her husband to
see her. The petition also requests
that Mrs. Short be removed to her
home or to a hospital where she can
get the proper medical assistance-

Ponca City Courier: Dr. Walter
Schenck appeared on the street this
morning with a sunflower about as
big as a dinner plate in his button
hole. "That shows," said the doctor,
:'that Oklahoma not only produces
bigger and handsomer sunflowers
than the Sunflower state herself but
produces them about a month earlier
in the season.
New York, June 26.—John Herd,
65 years old, of Pawnee, O. T., has
been seeing the sights of the east for
the last few weeks and one night re-
cently in Newark, he decided to go
back home at once. He confided his
determination to a stranger as he
walked toward the Market street sta-
tion of the Pennsylvania railroad,
and the stranger kindly offered to J
buy his ticket for him, so that the old
man would not have to stand in line
before the ticket window.
Herd handed over $44,50, the price
of his ticket, and presently the stran-
ger returned and gave him a ticket i
in an envelope.
\fter the stranger had gone Herd
opened the envelope to be sure every-
thing was as it should be. The ticket
was to Pittsburg, and cost $1.50, and
the obliging stranger had got away
with $34 of the westerner's money.
Over 9,000 homestead filings have
been made at the El Reno U. S. land
office. Five thousand seven hundred
and fifty is the total quarter sections
in the d'strict. The majority of or-
iginal entrymen are on their home-
steads, but in many cases the piece
of land has been tiled upon and relin-
quished several times, which explains
the large number of filings.

Tramps are passed into service as
harvesters in sections of Kansas.
Fifty or more of the "hobo" frater-
nity were Raptured near Pratt, and
all day long they were forced to run
binders and carry bundles by armed
guards. The strange part of the pro-
ceeding was that the guards were
women. The deficiency of farm
hands in Pratt county alone is $2,000,
while the state is short about 10,000.
David W. Blaine, the harvest hand
importer, had arranged for all the
men for Pratt county. The men,
however, were captured by farmers
along the line.
Last night a freight train west-
ward bound was wrecked near Pratt.
There were fifty or sixty tramps on
it going to Colorado. The farmers
heard of it and they tried to employ
them at $2 per day. Very few of
them were willing to work, so with
shotgun persuasion they were dis-
tributed among the farmers.
David Blaine telephoned from
Pratt tonight saying the tramps
could be forced to remain at work for
ten davs at least.

just received a carload of fruit jars
and received the use of the jars for a
couple of days. Over each hill of

his cattle into the field and let them
