Last Wednesday afternoon, Keller,
the young register of deeds, created
quite a commotion in the north part
of this city by rolling down a flight of
stairs. When picked up he was in a
lifeless condition. The near neigh-
bors were called in and a runner dis-
patched for Mr. Keller and a doctor,
but when the father and doctor ar-
rived the young man had recovered
his breath and was ready to enter-
j. m. Curtice, while hunting with
Mr. Bessent the lirst of this week,
took a great fancy to Mr. Bessent's
bird dog. Mr. Curtice lias a fine ken-
nel of bird dogs, but Mr Bessent's dog
was so much better than anything he
had in his kennel that he made Mr.
Bessent a proposition to trade htm his
whole kennel and $100.00 in cash for
Sport. Mr. Bessent took the $100.00
in cash, and selected a seven months
old pup that Mr. Curtice had paid
$25.00 for, when six weeks old.
In two weeks time, Guthrie raised a
railroad bonus of over $50,000 and had
the contract signed up for the Sapul-
pa extension to be running cars into
Guthrie over the new road by the 3rd
of next July. Oklahoma City has
spent a year's time in trying to do
the same thing, but it just took Guth-
rie two weeks to scoop Oklahoma City
in the deal. Of course Oklahoma
City still insists that a road will be
run from Sapulpa to that city not-
withstanding the line to be built to
Yesterday morning Dr. Ellard
would have fought a circular saw
without much coaxing. In taking his
horse to water Wednesday morning it
attempted to pitch him causing him
to ruin a $3.00 hat and Wednesday
evening it broke loose from a hitch-
ing post near second hand store and
when caught harness and buggy look-
ed like litter behind a threshing ma-
chine. Dr. is Inclined to think some-
body untied the halter strap, letting
the horse loose with the buggy, but
we hardly think any one would be
mean enough for such a trick.
Commissioner Daniels promised the
people of his district, that, if elected,
he would reduce taxes ; but numbers
of his constituents, who voted for him
because of this promise, are around
behind their wood sheds kicking them-
selves. Taxes this year are not low-
er, but higher and will be still higher
next year, Commissioner Daniels'
promise to the contrary notwith-
standing. By the later assertion we
don't mean that the rate next year
will be necessarily higher than this
year, but we do mean more money will
have to be raised by taxation to de-
fray the running expenses of the
countv than will be raised by the tax
rate.for this year.
a lady in this town can testify that
a number of youths attending the
University still po--ess a fondness for
milk. She gave a party to the young
people at her house last week, and a
number of University students at-
tended it. During the evening she
noticed that several of the boys came
in from the porch wiping their
mouths and thought it a little strange
at the time, but next morning when
she went out to the porch to get cream
for breakfast the action of the boys
the evening before was clear to her ;
for there set her uiilk crocks as empty
as if licked by a calf.

In the tax cases, the supreme court
held that the action of the territorial
board in raising the assessments of
various counties was arbitrary and
not supported by the laws of Oklaho-
ma. In the case to test whether the

the matter of expenditures, the court
held that there was no limit to the
expenditures for general purposes.
The past week has been ideal weath-

cool and pleasant through the day.
The wheat crop is nearly all sown and
the growing crop looks very well, but
it is in need of a good soaking rain.
It will not make much progress until
it gets more rain. The stream of cot-
ton coming to market still continues 3
to be large and the price continues to |
be edging downwards. A rise of two v
cents would precipitate a deluge of «
cotton here for a few davs as most of i 5
the farmers have been holding back *
some of their cotton. In other words : %
they have been busy picking out the J
last of their crop and not marketing «
it as fast as they have been picking
it, in hopes that prices would get bet-
ter and a sudden rise would cause
them to hasten to market with what
they have on hand. Yesterday even-
ing the books of the two cotton
yards in this city showed that 5,686
bales of cotton had been marketed
here this season and it is thought that
before the season is over 9,000 bales
will have passed through the cotton
yards of Norman. Yesterday even-
ing the cotton market took an up-
ward turn and reports from New
York city indicate that an advance
in price is coming.
