Another Guthrie Dream.
The Guthrie Leader has had an-
other dream concerning the D. I .
& G It. P.. This time the spir s
seem to tell the Leader man that the
road was a "Katy Line." It seems
strange that the Guthrie fellows can-
not get it into their heads that the
D. E. & G. is just what its name in-
dicates the Denver, Enid .V Gulf rail-
road. The evidence the Leader gives
to sustain its dream is the simple
fact that the depot at Knid is paint-
ed green and yellow. That is.avtry
rich and'-arestatement which must
Jiave been included in the dream as
the road has not constructed a per-
manent depot at this point as yet.
The Leader will lie compelled to
dream again, or guess''again. When
the D E. & G. is finished from Puget
Sound to the Gulf of Mexico we pre-
sume our friends at Guthrie will call
it a Giuld or Rockefeller system, not
being able to believe that the road
knows its right name. Katy, the
dear old Missouri, Kansas and Texas
girl has nothing whatever to do with
the Enid line.

For many years the Agricultural
Department has made it a rule to
distribute gratuitously rare seeds for
for the use of farmers; it has now
announced that it is willing to place
at the disposal of agriculturists, bac-
teria which will enrich the soil. It is
the purpose of the department to send
out bacteria which will assist in the
protection of leguminous plants, such
as clover, peas, beans, and locust
trees. The bacteria which will en-
rich the soil, it is the purpose of the
bacteria to change the air into a
nitre.'e which can be eas ly digested
by the plant. Of particular service
will these bacteria be in the growing
The corn crop of the United Stater-
will be short this year according to
the statements of Secretary or Agri-
cultural Wilson, who has just return-
ed to Washington froin^a tour of the
states of Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa
Minnesota and two Dakotas.
"The abnormally cool,weather,
he said, "has retarded the develop-
ment of the corn cop. Along the
valleys during high water the crop
was destroyed and on the level lands
that have been saturated the corn
will not mature. The best corn is
along the dry rolling lands, but.even
there the cool season has prevented
the crop from being what it should
be at this time. We may have an
average crop if the weather in the
j future i- favorable, but if it contin-
ues cold it is hard to say to what ex-
tent there will be a shortage. The
grass crop will be the finest for many
years. The cool weather has favor-
ed the growth of oats, wheat barley
and that class of produce. The
wheat crop is generaly good: Alto-
gether the outlook for the farmer is
good. We have been paying $*,000-
000 for macaroni, we are growing all
our own macaroni this year."

The Right Remedy.
An Old Shirt Tale.
The Alva Courier wants to know
what to do with some of the streets
in that town that are three hundred
feet wide. Reserve a thirty foot
driveway in the center and take one
hundred and thirty-five feet on either
side for walks and parking. It would
beat a narrow street out of sight.
No, the Eagle is not right in its
recommendatioh. It seems that the
taxpayer never has a friend in any
newspaper, except the Way s. Here
in Enid we are suffering with streets
in the residence and business portion
the city entirely too wide for
beauty or any practlcle pu pose ex
cept taxation to keep them graded
up as fast as the wind blows them
out. All the streets in the original
Knid townslte are 100 feet wide,
around the square they are 150 feet
wide. Our plan to abate this unnec-
essary waste of land would be to re.
organize the platt cutting all resi-
dence streets to 80 feet and business
streets 100 feet selling the 20 feet
surplus on the residence streets and
the 50 feet surplus on the business
streets at the market price turning
the monev over to the street com-
missioner to make the enormous
cuts and tills on the narrow streets
that are left. This plan would fur
nlsh revenue for the city.
A young man residing in Enid re-
cently purchased a shirt which was
manufactured iu the east. Rolled up
Inside of it he found a note from a
young lady who had worked on it, in
which she said she would be pleased
to correspond with the buyer of the
shirt, provided he was matronially
inclined. Of course the young man
answered it on perfumed paper and
used his rosiest language stating how
glad he would be to marry. In a
abort time he received an answer
stating that the young woman had
now been married three years and
had two children. Upon investiga-
tion to find out why he was to late,
it was all explained by the fact that
the shirt had lain on the shelves, of
the local dealer for several years.
As he did not advertise.
Police Court News
Yesterday quite a herd of the down
trodden blackman went before his
honor Judge Roach charged with
various misdemeanors in the way of
disturbing the peace and fluiet of
the city. One negro was fined to the
tune of SIC. cost and all. The bal-
ance were in the usual happy condi-
tion, nothing but watermellon seeds
in their pockets. The court gave
the whole her3 but a few short min-
utes to skip the town and the police
were kind enough to show them the
way. A few white hoboes, without
any visable means of existance in
the great struggle of life were treat-
ed likewise aud they followed the
same o d trail south, however a few
g ided north.
Bad roads are causing more or less
