Oklahoma has 5,500 miles of
railroads, 700 banks and 80 daily
newspapers ; Oklahoma City has 40
miles of asphalt pavement. Pretty
good for the newest state in the Union
Emerson Arnold, through Hugh
Dean's realestate agency, purchased
last week a fine home in Cushing.
He has three acres of land all set
in fruit and berries.
The first street sale in Carney
was held last Saturday afternoon.
But few articles were offered as it
being the first sale the people had
not caught on, but should they be
continued no doubt they could be
made a success. We hope all will
hereafter take an interest in these
sales should they be continued, as
they give anyone having articles
they do not want a chance to dispose
Our realestate men are bringing
home seekers to this part of the
country every week. They have lo-
cated several families and have
prospects of locating others. Every-
thing considered—the price of
farm lands, the productiveness of
the soil, health and good society, i
this part of Lincoln county has no ,
superior in the state. It is the com-1
The pie supper given by the Wood-
man lodge of this place last Satur-
day night was a success. The hall
was full of young people who always
make a success of such occasions.
The ladies of Carney never fail to

called upon for edibles for the ben-
efit of churches' or lodge. The re-
ceipts were $25.90.

ces here, as are often found in the
larger cities, but at the same time
the town is remarkably free from the

solicitude by the wholesale houses,
and whose devious ways cause much
forboding to their numerous credit-
We are pleased to note that the
farms in this county are developing
into a higher stage of cultivation.
The young farmers have certainly
improved upon the old fogy methods
of their fathers, and the more mod-
ern way of farming is causing Moth-
er Earth to produde her largest and
Some of our farmers are going to
diversify their crops this year and
not depend alone on cotton. This
soil raises all kind*. of crops and
diversified tarming will keep a whole
lot of money at home. Meat, feed,
potatoes and many other things that
farmers pay out money for can be
easily produced at home.
A genuine prosperity item comes
from Sequoyah county. One day
last week the farmers disposed of
1,600 bales of cotton, the approx-
imate price being 5100,000. The
cotton had been stored in the Farm-
er's Union warehouse at Sallisaw.
A negro got very gay at Boswell

dance but he was mistaken in the
man. The undertaker took charge
of the negro's body.
Harry Cromer and J. L. Dobson
returned last week from their visit
to New Mexico. They were delight-
ed with the country. Harry says
the country looked good to him and
he expects to returned there in the

Nothing adds more to the value
