TWO BANDITS K'LIED IN BATTLE
Two Brothers, Resisting rrest, Slain
A by Deputies Near Howe.

hews, brothers, 20 and 25 years of
age, respectively, were shot to death
in a gun battle with George Barlow
and L. M. Menninghall, deputy sher-
iffs. near Howe, LeFlore county, Okla.,
forty miles southwest of here.
The shooting took place near the
home of the Mathews brothers, three
miles southeast of Howe. James
Mathews was instantly killed. Henry
Mathews disappeared in a clump of
bushes about forty yards from the
shooting. His body was found by
bloodhounds that were rushed to
Howe from Ft. 8mith.
According to the officers, who ha e
not been arrested they suspected tke
Mathews brothers of being the holdup
men who have terrorized the commun-
ity between Howe and Heavener for
the past month, cammitting robberies
and burglaries almost nightly. A
week ago the officers engaged two
men In a duel in the railroad yards
The officers declare that when they
commanded the brothers to throw up
their hands, the Mathews opened fire
on them with pistols. The officers
replied with rifles Both suspects
were shot twice. Edward Harold, re-
siding near Heavener, was arrested on
suspicion of having concealed the

But Evidently Dealer Hadn't Quite

by Hia Customer.
Here Is a little story that was told
by Congressman William C. Adamson
of Georgia when the conversation
turned to natural misunderstanding:
A young housewife who lives in a
suburban town went to the village
store to make some purchases.
"These chickens look very nice," re-
marked the customer, pausing before
the poultry counter. "How much are
"One dollar apiece, madam," was the
prompt response of the obliging pro-
prietor. "You can't find better poul-
try for the money in the whole coun-
"One dollar," thoughtfully mused
the customer, and then added: "Did
you raise them?"
"Oh, no, madam!" was the hasty
assurance of the misunderstanding
storekeeper. "That is the same price
I offered to sell them for yesterday."

Tulsa—A movement will be launched
at the anneal convention of the Okla-
homa conference of the Methodist Epls
copal church, which convenes in Tulsa,
October 16, to subdivide the conference
which Is a territory of magnificent dis-
tances, embracing all or Oklahoma and
part of Texas. The original Okla-
homa conference, East Oklahoma Mis-
sion conference and the Texas con-
ference were merged into a single or-
ganization about three years ago. The
chief objection to the vastness of its
area comes from the ministers in the
poorer churches, who say It would take
at least half of their yearly salary to
make a move from one extreme point
to another in the conference.
Bishop W. O. Shepard will preside
at the conference which will be at-
tended by 500 ministers and probably
as many lay delegates. It will meet
in Convention hall.

"To get drunk is an unheard-of thing

Kitchener told this story:

Simla, came home drunk and his

"Aren't you ashamed to return from

Antlers—Patrick Hearne died in a
Paris, Texas, hospital from injuries
sustained here a week ago when the
railroad station in which he worked
as agent was robbed. Hearne was
rendered unconscious by the robbers
and then placed across the railroad
tracks. He regained consciousness
long enough to crawl from the tracks
to a truck standing on the station
platform. A train arrtved a few min-
utes later and Hearne's unconscious
form was found by the train crew.
The robbers who had secured $21 by
rifling the station fled. Three young
men arc now in jail at Hugo, wher°
they are being held on suspicion that
they were implicated in the slugging
of the station agent and the robbing of
Hearne's skull was fractured, and ac-
cording to a telegram received here
from Paris, did not regain conscious-
ness after arriving at the hospital.
