Mulhall, Logan County, Oklahoma
Are you afraid f
to have those old roots pulled #
Do you know that on waking in the morning the mouth has been found to contain about
3,000,000,000 bacteria? This fact should start you thinking. You awake with a bad breath;
your stomach is out of order and you "feel bad all over." It is time for you to see the
dentist; not the doctor.
Nervousness, Rheumatism, Constipation, Disordered stomach. Aches and pains in the
eyes, head and shoulders can be caused from the teeth.
You would not think of having a boil in your mouth AND let it go; yet I have seen mouths
that are constantly throwing off "matter" for you to swallow, especially when you are
asleep. You are in need of a dentist RIGHT NOW if for nothing else but a through exam-
ination, for which there will be no charge. We want you to get those old teeth out of
your mouth. It is for your good we are spending money to tell you about your teeth. Since
last week the following people have had teeth pulled: Mrs. T. Means, Mrs. Cotton, Mrs.
Wilburg, Bill Ellis, Paul Schrammel, Walt (iumm, Mrs. C. C- Scott, Mrs. Winton, Bertha
Osborn and Mrs. Joe Claunch. DONT ASK US, ASK YOUR NEIGHBOR. Any of these peo-
ple will be glad to tell you about the pulling. We want to be known by our work. Our
time and personal attention, is always at your command.
Remember, this is the time for you to have teeth out. It will be too cold in a few weeks.

Harry Huston For District Judge.
There is certainly one can-
didate on the Republican ticket
who is surely not worrying any
over his chances of election.
Judge Harry Huston, who has
been district judge of this dis-
trict for the past four years, is a
canadate for re-election to that
important office. It is said of
Judge Huston that his decisions
are absolutely just and fair; that
he has and holds the goodwill of
juror, lawyer and citizen who
expect fairness and impartially
at the hands of judges. Judge
Harry Huston is a man of ability
and integrity, two very necessary
requisites for the man who would
occupy the bench. He is a man
of fine character and it is not
amiss to say that the entire
citizenship of Logan county has
faith in him to the extent that
they will vote for him almost re-1
gardless of party lines. He de- j
serves the support, too, and
without question he will go back
to that important place by a
splendid majority. A vote for
Harry Huston is a vote for
honesty, integrity, capability i
and for a man of the people.
Hon. O. B. Acton is making a
campaign for his election to the
legislature from this district of
Logan county that is pretty sure
to land him by a handsome vote.
In an interview with him at
Guthrie the other day, lie stated
that he had been over the dis-
trict pretty well and that the
situation looked very good to him.
He is not abusing anybody in his
campaign; he is not throwing
any mud at his opponents (there's
four of 'em, too) and is going
along on the theory that he can
and will do good in the legis-
lature for his constituents. Mr.
Acton has been tried and surely
not found wanting, and is en-
titled to the support of his party
and will get it. He sends a
promise to his friends in this part
of the district that he is coming
soon to see them.

This week the State Journal
office printed bills for J. A.
Stauffer and Grover Dowell. Mr.
Stauffer will have his sale
October 7tn, while the Dowell
sale will be on the 6th. Mr.
Dowell expects to go to Colorado
immediately after the sale. Mr.
Stauffer will move to Lawton.
There is some good property on
both these sales. While we are
talking about sales don't forget
the sale of Uncle Bill Morris on
the 29th, out in the Hubbell
McGinty, the horse buyer, was
here Tuesday as advertised.
While here he bought about
twenty-one head of horses and
paid reasonably good prices for
theVn. Owing to the war in
Europe horses are considerably
higher than usual this fall and
many of the farmers are taking
advantage of this fact to dispose
of their geldings. It seems to
be the intention generally of the
farmers to replace their geldings
with brood mares and this will
undoubtedly prove a great
benefit to the community.
Bart Smith, the "smeller" for
the Big Star oil and gas company,
arrived in Mulhall Tuesday eve-
ning and will select for the
company the most likely location
for the drilling of the first test
well. According to Mr. Smith
the territory south of town will
prove one of the greatest oil
fields in the state. He says oil
wells of from three hundred to
one thousand barrel production
will be struck at a depth of less
than one thousand feet. Mr
Smith has tested out this
territory thoroughly and is
positive that he cannot be mis-
taken about the run of the oil in
Miss Caffee, secretary of the
Big Star oil company, was in
Mulhall Saturday and checked
up the leases as stated in last
week's Journal. In company
with several farmers living south
of town, she rode out over the
territory and inspected the lease
holdings and was well pleased
with the surface indications.
From what we can learn a rig
will be shipped to Mulhall some-
time this week and work will be
started just as soon as the leases
can be put in shape. It seems
that there are a few leases yet
that must be secured before the
company will begin work but the
farmers who are boosting the
proposition say they will have no
| trouble in securing these leases
as all the parties have been seen
| and all say they will lease when-
ever they are convinced that the
j company means business. We
i want again to congratulate the
farmers south of town on the
spirit of co-operation and the
enterprise they are putting in
this movement. We are always
ready to take our hat off to any
bunch of men who can by work-
ing together pull a thing of this
| kind through to a successful

Frank Quarles of Fairfax visit-
ed over Sunday with friends in
Mulhall. While here he checked
up the invoice of the Giem hard-
ware stock which is to be sold
next Monday, and Frank says he
expects to be on hand for the
sale and if the stock sells cheap
enough he may buy it in and
move it to Fairfax and combine
it with stock he owns at that
place. From what we can learn
Frank has a fine hardware busi-
ness and carries a big stock all
the time, and so of course he
could afford to pay more for the
Giem stock than any one here
because he has an established
business which would very soon
enable him to turn the stock into
money. In this way he could
! make a quick turn of the stock
which would not be possible for
a local buyer- However, we are
informed that several local part-
ies expect to bid on this stock.
The State Journal would be
pleased to see one of the two
things happen to this stock:
either some one buy it and move
it out of town or that it pass into
j the hands of some one financially
able and willing to put in a stock
sufficiently large to make a good
business. The stock has always
been small, and as the trade
territory is limited this store
seems to have not been a very
great money-maker. During the
last five or six years there have
been as many different owners
of this store and so far as we
can learn no one has ever been
able to make any money out of
the proposition. It has come to
be regarded as a sort of trading
stock and it would probably be
the best thing for the town and
community if it were moved
away. Then if it developed that
there was room for another hard-
ware store in Mulhall some one
with financial means sufficient to
put in a complete hardware stock
in all departments might be in-
duced to come to this town.

State Taxes In Eastern Oklahoma.
Oklahoma City, Ok., Sept. 23.
—The State Examiner and In-
spector recently made public a
statement in which he attempted
to show that the heavy burden
of taxes in Oklahoma was due,
not to State officials, but to
County officials. As a matter of
fact, State taxes for 1913 con-
stituted an average of about 26
per cent of the taxes levied for
all purposes in the different
counties. How State taxes have
grown year after year under
statehood, may be seen in the
old Indian Territory counties of
Muskogee, Washington, Carter,
Pittsburg, Pontotoc, Craig,
Bryan, Creek, LeFlore, Grady
and Ottawa—these counties be-
ing chosen for the purpose of
geving representation to different
parts of the State. The total
amount of taxes levied for State
purposes in these counties for
1909 was $436,868.69. Two
years later the amount had jump-
ed to $511,078.38, and in 1913the
figures were $805,729.04, or
twice those of 1909.
Of course you will not miss the
home talent play on October 2.
The Cotton Situation.
According to a report issued
by Mr. McAdoo, Secretary of the
National Treasury, the situation
is improving in the cotton out-
look every day. Foreign ship-
ments are being made every day
now from the ports of Galveston,
New York and Philadelphia.
Last week there was shipped
from Galveston 27,215 bales.
For the month of August last
year there was exported 257,168
bales, while for the month of
August this year there was ex-
ported only 21,210 bales showing
a deficit for the month of 236,000
bales, all this, according to Sec-
retary McAdoo, indicates a de-
ferred demand for cotton which
ought to be encouraging to the
I cotton producers and shippers in
this country, because a large
1 part of this demand will certainly
have to be satisfied in the near
future. Moreover the demand
from domestic mills must soon
assert itself, because it was
shown at the cotton conference
held in Washington on August
24 and 25 that the manufacturers
had on hand at that time a sixty
day supply of raw material only.
They cannot, therefore, defer
much longer purchasing raw
"The price of cotton as report-
ed to the treasury department,
has stiffened appreciably during
the last few days, sales being re-
ported at from 8i to 8$ cents per
pound and that it is likely to go
higher. On August 25 when the
cotton conference was held at the
treasury department cotton was
reported selling in many places
in the south at from 6 to 6i cents
I "There is no reason, in my
i opinion, for the pessimism which
prevails in many quarters of the
south about cotton. The assis-
j tance which the federal gover-
ment is extending to the banks,
through the issuance of national
bank currency against notes se-
cured by cotton warehouse re-
ciepts, has already greatly im-
proved the situation."
