Logan County Shorthorn Breeders
That was a big picnic at W.
E. Combs' farm a short time ago.
It was under the auspices of the
Logan County Shorthorn Breed-
ers Association. W. I. Wade of
Douglas, Okla., acted as the
judge of stock. J .R. Wiley,
county agent was there. He took
pictures of the crowd and also of
the cattle. In the forthcoming
fair edition of the Daily Okla-
homan photographs of Mr.
Combs' farm and shock barns
will appear. At the picnic the
members of the Hoys' Calf Club
took an active part in the judg-
ing contest. A basket dinner
made up of the best eats was
served. It was a day well spent.
Mrs. Audrey Poindcxter and
children left for their Coving-
ton home Monday after an en-
joyable visit at the homes
relatives and friends here.
Mrs. Chester Naxton is in from
the farm this week a guest of her

An Auto Collision.
J. T. Phelps was over from
Crescent on Wednesday of last
week. His wife and daughter
were with him. They made a trip
east of Mulhall, and were on their
return when at the road crossing
one-half mile south of Mulhall
they ran into another car which
was coming from the north. In
the latter car were two ladies
They were on their way to Okla-
homa City. Mr.. Phelps was
making good headway. He struck
the Oklahoma City ear, a sedan,
with Mich force as to turn it over.
His Ford turned to one side and
was ditched. The Sedan got the
worst of it. The top was torn off.
Phelps' car wasn't hurt much.
The repairs will cost about $33.
The cost of fixing up the sedan
will probably be $'100. Some say
the Oklahoma City folks had the
right of way and that Mr. Phelps
should have come to a stop when
he got to the road crossing. For-
tunately no one was hurt.
Mr .and Mrsfl J. S. Diehl went
to Chapman, Kans., last week to

lay around and do nothing these1

Pleasant View school building. |
Earl Shafer got a few hurts
and a bad scare a few days ago
when a team attached to a hay
rake ran off with him.
A Surprise Party
Last Saturday yiglit a host of
friends of Mrs. Graver Dowell
who lives six miles northeast of
town gave her a call which turn-
ed out to be a welcome one.
They showered her with cakes,
pies and ice tea as a birthday
present. Her birthday was not
until Monday the 14th. She was
34 years old. It suited the crowd
best to go there Saturday night.
They knew she wouldn't care.
She was really well pleased with
the visit. There were over a
hundred present and all reported
a very enjoyable time.
It is almost needless to mention that
t«le editor is away this week—a glance at
the paper makes that apparent. Accom-
panied by Mrs. Calkins and tier sister.

Fordson Often Does More
In a Day Than Six Horses
The Fordson substitutes motors for muscles.
The Fordson substitutes tractor wheels for the
legs of man and horse.
The Fordson takes the burden off flesh and
blood and puts it on steel.
It allows the farmer's energy to be devoted to
management, and not merely to operation. It
gives him time. It cuts his producing costs.
There's a big story of savings made possible
by the Fordson. Let us tell you. Write,
phone or call.
