OKLAHOMA CITY BANKER PUR-
CHASES PHILIPPINE BONDS
BIDS AGAINST NEW YORK EANKERS
M. L. Turner of Oklahoma City Bids
in the New Three Million Philippine
Bonds—Bidding Was Spirited—A
Great Victory for the West
WASHINGTON: Bids were opened
Monday in the office of Colonel Ed-
wards, chief of the bureau of Insular
affairs for three million dollars in
temporary Philippine certificates of
indebtedness. The entire lot sold to
M. L. Turner of Oklahoma City at
Other bids for the entire lot wore:
Kountz Brothers. New York, $100.-
252; Fislc & Robinson, New York,
$100,125: National Park bank, New
York, $100,577; Guarantee Trust com-
pany, New York, $101,200; C. S. Jobes,
Kansas Citp, $100,435; Fisk & Son
Vermllye, New York, $101,377; Doom-
inick & Doominlck and William Solo-
mon, New York, $101,141.
The bidding was spirited, and the
,results are highly pleasing to the war
department officials. They regard the
high prices offered as indicating that
the Philippines have gained a good
credit in the money markets. The
certificates were oversubscribed nine
times. • The bidding was close, the
highest being less than $10,000 ahead
of the nearest competitor.
OKLAHOMA CITY: The news of
Mr. Turner's buying the Philippine
bonds was received here with much
satisfaction. Not alone can Okla-
homa City feel elated, but the entire
southwest will hereafter be a consid-
eration in financial matters.

Litigation Growing Out of Capitol Na-
tional Bank Failure
GUTHRIE: Receiver Willoughby
of the defunct Capitol National Bank
here, has begun suits at Wewoka
against R. A. McFarland, cashier of
the defunct National Bank, at Holden-
ville, (a sitser bank of tho Capitol
National), and also against Mrs
Smith, to recover the possession of
700 head of cattle, covered by an al-
leged mortgage of $15,000, which
amount of money, according to Mr.
Willoughby, was loaned on the cattle
by the defunct bank at Holdenville.
The results are replevin suits.
Mr. Willoughby claims to have gone
to Holdenville and vicinity to take
possession of the cattle, but could not
find them; consequently he began the
There is also a suit in court between
the receiver of the Capitol National
here and the Miners' Bank of Joplin,
Mo., relative to 150 heads of steers,
which the defendant has in the yards
at Holdenville, but upon which Re-
ceiver Willoughby claims to have a
prior claim, stating the bank had
loaned money on the cattle.
Capitol National conditions are no
nearer solved than for the past sev-
eral months and there is nothing a"
yet to indicate when there will bo any
settlement witn the depositors.

Old Jail to Be Burned
MUSKOGEE: The old federal jail
here is to be burned as soon as the
prisoners are transferred to the new
building. Not a splinter of the famous
old landmark will be left. It is not
definitely known, however, just when
the transfer will take place, although
it is presumed September 1st will be
the date. The new prison is com-

approved. When these furnishings ar-

Sailors of Different Nationalities Vary
, in Their Likes.
The privilege of keeping pets
Very much appreciated by bluejackets,
who lavish their spare time and cash
on some very strange animals. The
British warship Centurion once had a
monkey that used to eat with a spoon
from a plate and drink from a glass,
with a dinner napkin tucked under
bis chin the while. The Caesar had
a pet goose some time back. Cats
and dogs, of course, are common on
board ship. The French warship Mar-
ceau had a bantam cock named Bou-
langer as pet, which crowed whenevei
iho guns were fired. The German
Prinz Wilhelm had a grey stork, and
the United States Chicago had a pig.
Doves, pigeons, blackbirds and pea
cocks are popular with Italian sea
men, and the unfortunate Almirante
Oquendo of Spain had a pair of casso-
waries as pets.
The Father of American Golf.
Robert Loclthart, a New York linen
merchant, who died recently in his
native Scotland, may well be spoken
of with reverence and gratitude on
every links in this country, for he
was golf's missionary to the United
States. He arrived in New York when
he was 20 years old. He was devoted
to tennis, in its brief term of favor,
and when that wanted he brought
back from a trip to Scotland two sets
of golf clubs, from Tom Morris, called
"the grand old man of Scottish golf."
He brought his neighbors together un-
der an apple tree in Yonkers, instruct-
ed them in the game, exhibited its
points in action, and tho "Apple-tree
gang" soon formed the St. Andrews
Golf club, the first in this country.
And American golfers will go out of
their way, when visiting the other
side, to see the tomb of Robert Lock-
hart in Dunfermline abbey.

MUSKOGEE: The negro post,
master at Lee, ten miles west of this
to-sfrn, has a brother, Lewis Watley,
who is employed as a clerk in the
store in which the postnfflce is lo-
cated. This young negro got into the

using a fictitious name. He would
send these money orders to some
postofiice near by and on the same
day would send the official notice
that the money order had been sent
Then he would go to the town where
he had sent the money order and get
the cash. One money order was for-

Needs Only a Little Thinking.
The food of childhood often decides
whether one is to grow up well nour-
ished and healthy or weak and sick-
ly from Improper food.
It's just as easy to be one as the
other provided we get a proper start.
A wise physician like the Denver
Doctor who knew about food, can ac-
complish wonders provided the pa
tient is willing to help and will eat
only proper food.
Speaking of this case the Mother
said her little four year old boy was
suffering from a peculiar derangement
of the stomach, liver and kidneys and
his feet became so swollen he couldn't
take a step. "We called a Doctor who
said at once we must t)e very careful
as to his diet as improper food was
the only cause of his sickness. Sugar
especially, he forbid.
So the Dr. made up a diet and the
principal food he prescribed was
Grape-Nuts and the boy, who was very
fond of sweet things took the Grape-
Nuts readily without adding any
sugar. (Dr. explained that the sweet
in Grape-Nuts is not at all like canc
or beet sugar but is the natural sweet
of the grains.)
"We saw big improvement inside a
few days and now Grape-Nuts are al-
most his only food and he is once
more a healthy, banny, rosy-cheeked
youngster with every prospect to
grow up into a strong healthy man."
Name given by Postum Co., Battle
The sweet of Grape-Nuts is the Na-
ture-sweet known as Post Sugar, not
digested in the liver like ordinary
sugar, but pre-digested. Feed the
youngsters a handful of Grape-Nuts
when Nature demands sweet and
prompts them to call for sugar.
There's a reason.

Strange Myths of the Tibetans.
The Tibetans have numberless
strange myths, one, the most curious,
pertaining to the sun, moon and stars:.
The sun is believed to be an immense
ball of yak meat and fat. whereon
the spirits of departed ancestors aro
supposed to feast, the light being
caused by its heated condition. The
stars are portions of this immense ^ RB
feast, which, dropping to earth, give j her th^ark idling
birth to animals for the sustenance of
suffering humanity. The moon in a
lesser ball of similar texture as the
sun, in use while the larger one is
being replenished for the morrow.
When sun or moon fails to appear in
cloudy days and nights it means that
the deities are undergoing a period
of fasting and religious abnegation.
And the parched and sterile condition
of bleak regions is ascribed to the
fact that many thousand years ago tho \
sun ball slipped from the hands of its
keepers, descended too near the earth,
and, before being recaptured, scorched
those parts with which it came in con-
