as compared with same days last
week. Run was 14.000 here yester-
day, mostly on stock cattle and she
stuff, and prices are five to fifteen
higher today, steers selling strongest
today. Killers were in almost pes si-.
mlstic mood last week, attributed to J

of any heavy runs, and the keen edge
is soon worn off the market on mod j

The mutton market has taken a
turn downward this week, after reach-
ing the high point of the summer^at
the close of last week. The run is
heavier this week, 7.000 here today,
and the small runs lately have been

market appears healthy, prices will;
depend on volume of the supply.

and citizens of El Reno met with
the county commissioners today, to
pow-wow in regard to the subject of
carrying the overflow from Bellamy's
lake to the river, and thus benefit the
city and many farms, and render tiie

land representatives were not pres-

be termed a dod-gasted fizzle.

Logan H. Root, at Little Rock to Fort
Riley, Kansas, where they will spend
two weeks in military maneuvers. From

sort of exercise which they would
probably be in actual warfare.

ster wagons are running in the city
'this season, and vegetables of all sorts
are a drug upon the market. The
many new five and ten acre farms in
the vicinity have turned out more than
enough truck to supply the home mar
krt, and hereafter a shipping market
must be depended upon to take care
of the surplus.

This County Will be Represented at

viewed today by F. F. Feiguson, who
is in the service of the department
of agriculture, in regard to getting
up a corn show. His object is to have

be held in Omftha, beginning on De-

Never before in the history of Can-
adian county was tin re so good an op-
portunity to make a good display of
the capabilities of this region in the
production of corn, and the county
will be greatly benefitted by having
the Nebraska, Iowa and Illinois farm-
ers see that. Canadian county's $"0-
to-$50 an-acre land produces as good
corn and as much of it to the acre
as does their land which is priced
three times that high.
