LATE NEWS OF NOTE
President Wilson celebrated hi.
63rd birthday on Sunday, having
been born Dec. J8, 1856. Owing to
his sickness, the celebration was
quiet, only the immediate members
of the family being present at the
White House. The president is said
to be recovering and in the course
of a few weeks is expected to be able
to take active charge of affairs.
Senator Robert Owen is in Okla-
homa City, having arrived from
Washington 011 Saturday. It is ex-
pected that the "Owen for Presi-
dent" movement will now take on
renewed energy, and many clubs be
organized all over the state. Sena-|
tor Owen predicts that the League j
of Nations will be ratified in a short
time, on a compromise basis—with
some reservations from the original
Some excitement was occasioned in
Tulsa 011 Saturday by reports that
"Hilly'' Dansey had been located,
there, but it proved to be unfounded. I
"Billy" disappeared from Hammon-1
ton, N. J., several weeks ago and a
nation-wide search is Being made for'
him, rivaling' the search made many
years ago for C harlie Ross—who, by
the way, was never found.
Hundreds of deaths have occurred
these Christmas times in the United
States caused by drinking wood al-
cohol as a substitute for whisky. The
stuff kills or makes blind, and in ad-
dition to the deaths many people arc
in the hospitals. The most of the
casualties appear to have occurred in
the New England states, the fake
whisky being brought there from
New York. Prohibition has received
a big boost in those locaiities.

river as the site of Pierre and that on
Christmas day the party was at-
tacked by Sioux Indians and their
He asserted he knew that the hull
of the boat containing the gold was
sunk and that the acretion of years
had covered it.
Later other men appeared in Pierre
and made the same proposition ;o
the city. Permission was granted
and they began drilling into the
earth at the point where they said
the hull of the boat, after being
burned to the water's edge, was sunk.
While these men are boring holes
ill the city park, other men are
searching 011 a large sandbar near
the middle of the Missouri river op-
posite Pierre, some distance from
the present shore line, their theory
being that the shore extnded much
fartlir out when the boat was sunk
and that the location of the treasure
is near where they are digging and
Old settlers along the river doubt 1
whether the report is based on a-
good foundation, as the time men-
tioned was long before settlement 1
had advanced much above St. Louis,1
Mo., and there is 110 historical record j
of such an expedition.

boys who crawl under the circus tent;
they get to see the show all right and

hut they forget that if everybody

NOBODY READS THE ADS. j
1 rhe man who does not read the !
ads in a local newspaper is a '"no-
body," so perhaps, tile saying is true.!
The advertisements are, and ought to
be, one of the newsiest parts of a
daily paper. In this issue of the Her-
ald-Patrfot there are a score of an-
nouncements of real news value.
L. M. Cox of Oklahoma City was
shot and killed at Tulsa on Sunday
by Arch llall, who he was attempting
to rob. llall was also killed by Cox,
who, it develops, was recently re-
leased from the Texas penitentiary.
It is said Cox was wealthy, having
deposits in several banks in Oklaho-

ing for supposed buried treasure in a
city park is the novelty presented at
Pierre, in the Missouri river section
of South Dakota.
Last summer a man appeared be-
fore the city commission and said he
had located buried treasure in the
city park and made an offer of 25
per cent of the amount recovered lor
permission to dig for the treasure,
which he said was 51,000,000 or more.
His story was lo the effect that
the treasure was that obtained by a
party of men who worked the p'acer
mines of Montana before that terri-
tory was opened to white men; that
