Town Justice Fining Violators
of the Prohibitory
The town justice at Ripley
fined two parties, a negro and a
white man, $5 each for illegally
conveying liquor. There’s a
pointer for other town officers—
providing, always, that the mu-
nicipal justice doesn’t get into
trouble by assuming authority
beyond his jurisdiction.
MORE ECONOMY URGED.
County Commissioners* Pay
too High. Rakeoff Shonld
Since the new county commis-
sioners appear to he so hades-
bent on economy, The Farmer
suggests that they have plenty
of spare time in which to walk
back and forth from their homes
to Stillwater, thus saving the
taxpayers that item of mileage.
$500 to $600 each per year is
about four times what the com-
missioners earn. Let their char-

sizer of Hale, Mo.-Ripley Mail.

Father Eaton may be able to

of Friar Ham.
Last week’s Ripley Mail tells a
story which is indeed wonderful
if it is not a monstrous fabrica-
tion. The Farmer reproduces it
as an illustration of what rock-
crusher booze and other concom-
itants of high living can do for
the imagination and descriptive
powers of Ripley editors.
According to the Mail, J. L.
Kidder and Bert Bevins, of Cim-
arron township, cut a large oak
log and sawed it into boxing
boards. Noticing a change of
dedicated !color in the Planks- Mr. Beverfs
later discovered that he was saw-
ing down through the petrified
body of an Indian which had
been placed within the trunk
ages ago. So complete and mar-
velous had been the cohesive
union that the pick of a knife
or any other instrument would in
nowise disintegrate the fossil
from the wood. Nothing but the
dark red outline denoted where
the oak quit off and the Indian
began. The Indian is sawed up
in 1-inch boxing boards and meas-
ures nine feet and four inches.
The body was gotten in its en-
tirety except the topknot or tuft
of hair, where the log was sawed
off. but the hair can now be plain-
ly seen sticking in the other end
of the tree from whence the cut
Mr. Kidder and Mr. Bevins are
very reticent on the subject.
They have removed all the boards
and placed them in a hiding. It
is thought that later they will
have them polished and put on
exhibition. In one hand of the
Indian was a stone tomahawk
and in the other was a javelin or
spear. Of course as to how he
came to be there is only a matter
of conjecture, whether at that
age they buried their dead in
that way or v/hether he crawled
in at a lightning seam will never
be known, but one thing is cer-
tain if these statements are veri-
fied and the lumber produced

ship has produced one off the
wonders of the age.
New Equipment Being ANei
to the Big Shop. Knocker
Driven by Power.
A. E. Pierson has installed a
new 32-inch band saw and a 40-
lb. trip-hammer of the famous
MacGowan & Finnigan make.
The new machinery is driven by
a 9-h. p. gasoline engine and will
greatly increase the working
capacity of this industrial con-
cern. The new equipment
means an additional outlay of
about $600 and, with other new
equipment added during the
past two years, makes Yale’s
“Big Shop” the best equipped
smithy in this part of the
country. Mr. Pierson’s enter-
prise is most commendable and
we daresay will reap reward in
continued increase of patronage.
