Elsewhere in this issue appears
the announcement of E. E. Car-
ter, who is the democratic can-
didate for County Assessor. We
understand Mr. Carter is a suc-
cessful business man and it
would seem that the farmers as a
class should favor electing a far-
mer to this office. From what
we can learn farm taxes have
been too high in the past and by
electing Mr. Carter to the office
of County Assessor the farmers
have a chance to place a man in
office who will give every man a
square deal. A vote for Mr.
Carter will be appreciated.

B. Edgar, president of the Times
| Publishing company, filed with
I the federal district court clerk a
| voluntary petition in bankruptcy
Tuesday. Liabilities are listed
i at $190,132; resources at $53,998.
178. The liabilities are recapitu-
' lated under the following ac-
counts: Taxes due, $900; wages
due, $2,078.04; other preferred
jdebts, $3,167.02; secured claims,
$163,309.86; unsecured claims,
Resources are recapitulated
under the following general ac-
counts: Machinery and office
fixtures, $48,039.51; open ac-
counts due, $7,959.27.
Following the filing of the
petition with the federal district
clerk, attorneys in the case took
a copy to Lawton, where Judge
J. H. Cotteral is holding court
W o all know that cold weat-
her gives you neuralgia and
ninety percent of uralgia iscaued
by bad teeth.
Tell me why you will insist
in suffering with old roots and
aching teeth when you could
have relief in a few minutes.
I dont know why you are
afraid of a dentists' office. Dent-
istry is now so nearly painless
that we actually laugh, when
told about how it used to hurt to
Af<k your iii>i£hl or about
how easy it is to pull teeth by
our method. Better still, come
in and get your teeth out, then
you can tell others.
The Logan County Poultry As-
sociation is making every effort
to complete arrangements for a
larger and better chicken show
at Mulhall this fall. Mr. W. C.
Tallent the noted breeder and
judge, of Edmond, has been.em-
ployed for three full days, to
judge the show and to instruct
breeders how to raise better
poultry. The Association has
added another new feature: the
leading breeders are offering
eggs for hatching, as prizes to
amateur breeders who have
never won at a show. This feat-
ure will give farmers who wish
to know about their stock a
chance to show their birds and
get eggs as premiums. In this
way they may improve their
herd materially next season with-
out extra cost. Silver cups are
being offerd again as specials,
several have already arrived and
are on exhibit at the Ball Jewel-
ery, you can see them there.
Every-one who has a pure strain
of poultry should now prepare at
least a few birds for this show.
Helping the show is helping
yourself; you'^advertise your
stock, you promote a higher class
of stock in your community, thus
enriching it and so always bring-
ing prosperity to all. Your efforts
to produce something better will
incourage others to do likewise
until as a result our town will be
known and reconized as the place
to get the best, and will demand
higher prices for all.

Oklahoma City, Oct., 15.-To-
day the Oklahoma City Times
Company, a corporation, filed a
petition in bankruptcy in the
federal court, anticipating a like
action on the part of its bond-
Three years of very hard times
in Oklahoma City have brought
hundreds of others to the same
necessity. These years have
been marked by the collaps of
the boom, drouth, bad crops, the
retirement of eighteen merchants
from the field and the loss of
their advertising patronage, the
springing up of more newspapers
and the war in Europe with its
depressing effect on oil and cot-
ton, the two principal products
of this state.
Judge Cotteral will name a
receiver who will conduct the
paper and provide funds until
such time as a sale and reorgan-
izotion can be effected.
The Times will not cease to
exist nor to work for the best
interest of the people of this
state and city.
As we go to press L. K. Meek
reports that he now has ninety-
five bales of cotton stored in the
Wigwam Warehouse. This cot-
ton was all classed Thursday
morning by Frank Forrest, who
is acknowledged to be one of the
best cotton judges in Oklahoma,
and the ninety-five bales showed
up as follows: good midling, 4
bales, strict midling 45 bales,
midling 45 bales, strict low 1
bale. Farmers who have cotton
stored in the warehouse can find
out just how their cotton graded
by inquiring of Mr. Meek. This
service is given free to all farm
ers who store their cotton in the
warehouse, and the fact that the
cotton is classed so the farmer
knows what he is selling should
be a great benefit to him when
he markets his crop. As we
understand it cotton prices are
made on midling as a basis, strict
midling is one grade better than
midling and worth twelve and
one-half cents more per hundred
while good midling is two grades
better than midling and worth
twenty-five cents per hundred

The Fellow Who
"Buys a Bale"
I honor the brilliant statesman
Who fashions his country's laws,
I honor the noble soldier
Who fights for his country's cause
And dies on the field of bitttle
Where the bullets rain like hail,
But I tip my hat the highest
To the fellow that "buys a bale."
He has a heart in his bosom
That feels for his fellow-man.
He has a head on his shoulders
That sees the sense of the plan;
He lias no grouch on his features.
No lock and key on his kale —
Oh, whitest of all the white men!
The fellow that "buys a bale."
We shall bow to him on the highway,
We shall cheer him amid the throng;
We shall tell of his deed ill story,
And honor his name in song.
And when he crosses the border
And comei to the end of the trail,
Saint Peter shall pull the latch string
For the fellow who "bought a bale."

The Ideal Hnsband.
The "ideal husband" is
courageous, upright, just, truth-
ful, virtuous and merciful. There
are no "soul affinities" that come
between him and the woman
whom he has promised to love,
support and protect. He is care-
ful of his conduct so as to give
no room for even a remote sus-
picion that he is in any way dis-
loyal to the vows and promises
which he has made. This is the
all-important part to the true
happiness of any married woman;
she must feel and know that
there is no other woman who
comes between her and the man
she has vowed to love and cher-
ish as her husband. It is not
possible for a good and virtuous
woman to respect and love a man
who is profligated in his morals
and principles. No woman can
permanently love a man whom
she does not respect; she can
have no respect for him. Virt-
uous conduct in both men- and
women is the true basis from
which springs all there is of
happiness in married life. It is To Logan County Voters:
confidence in and respect for J am a candidate for re-election
each other that keeps the true as c guperintendent. I shall
love fires burning in the hearts
of men and women.
Improvement: Has a 5-room house, barn for
8 horses, corn crib and granery, a good well ot water and
200-barrell cistern; a good cave and chicken house; good
spring in pasture and plenty of timber for own use on the
farm; all fenced and cross fenced on rural route and tele-
phone lime; 70 acres in cultivation; balance in pasture and
hay land, except 7 acres of orchard — apple,s peaches plums
and small fruit. 1 his farm is in Payne county, well located,
in a good neighborhood, between several good markets and
will make an ideal home for someone. Parties interested
can inspect farm before sale day.
I prills: $500.00 cash day of sale, balance on or
before November 30, on delivery of deed and abstract of
title. We will have a loan agent to make loan if necessary
for the buyer.

It is hardly neccessary to add influence-
advt. 42 Margaret Doolittle
that the "ideal husband" will
provide the food and the cloth-
ing, the wood and the water, but
that he will do the cooking,
washing and milking when his
wife is sick or not able to do it.
In fact, he will join with her in
such work as this as often as he
can while she is well, so as to
prove to her that he does not
consider such work mential or
beneath the dignity of men.
Certainly no man should ask a
women to marry him who would
for one moment entertain the
idea that the work which of ne-
cessity, as it were fell to her lot
to perform, was degrading. The
"ideal husband" would not toler-
ate such a course of conduct in
himself toward his wife. His
standard of duty and life forbid
a littleness of character.
Some of my readers may say
that there are very few "ideal
husbands." This is doubtless
true, and only emphasizes the
greater importance that their
number be increased. Primarly
too many men are moved toward
what they do through motives of
selfishness; there is much in the
married life of far foo many that
suggest such to be the case.
There doubtless are many men so
absorbed in securing pleasures
for themselves that in marriage
they have never viewed the mat-
ter further than that point. Mar-
riage under such a condition
must prove a flat failure. The
"ideal husband" will ever re-
member that his wife's happiness
is of far greater moment and
weight to him than his own.
It's the man who really counts
in farming. Fertile land is nec-
essary, but a master mind must
solve the problem of production
The funeral of Willard Brill
took place from the first M. E.
church. Guthrie, Tuesday at 2.
30. Dr. Hislop, chancellor of
the University, delivered afuner-
al address of great beauty. The
pall bearers were fellow students,
and the students attended in a
body. This death was the cause
of unusual sorrow among those
who knew Willard.
He was born in Ohio, and came
with the family to Mulhall in
March, 1906, ^vhere his father
was pastor of the M. E. church
for a year and a half. He at-
tended the Mulhall schools and
later the Logan county high
school, and finished his academic
course at Oklahoma City. He
was a student of the Oklahoma
Methodist Uuiversity and would
have graduated next spring.
Willard Brill, as a youth and
young man, was of unusual lov-
able character, he numbered his
friends by those who knew him.
His mental and moral attain-
ments were of an unusual high
order. He stood high in the es-
timation of his teachers, and had
been engaged as an instructor in
the university. He was taken to
the hospital about four weeks'
ago and at once began a fight
against the dreaded typhoid
feVer. Although he had the skilled
attention of doctors and nurses,
he breathed his last at 6 o'clock
Monday morning. He had pass-
ed his 21st. birthday about eight
He had many friends at Mul-
hall who will mourn with the be-
reaved family. All the family
were at the funeral.
