The Taylor Bros , W. F. and
Floyd, went to the Washita Tues-
day and captured a cattish whicb
tirped the scales at 39 pounds.
Floyd Taylor caught him with
his hands and they still show
marks of the htruggle.
With the great amount of al
fa<fa being grown around Cor-
dell as well as the kafiir corn,
why would it not be a good idea
to agitate an alfalfa meal mill for
Cordell* It could be run in con-
nection with the flouring mill
and would no doubt be a paying
investment for some man who
had the capital.
Mayc & Briggs started up
their new restaurant Monday
morning and sj far have met
with good success. They have
a very nice place, one where la-
dies can go and be free from the
usual short order hustle, as th^y
have tables apart from the lunch
counter. Mrs. Briggs has chaige
of the dining room, making the
surroundings more home like
as to whether the pure food law
covered eg«s. There are many
poot eggs coming to town, but
this is not the fault of the factory
turning them out. They are
pure when finished.

There is one bright spot in the
surrounding darkness and that
is the coroner, He is a Republi-
can and was elected by a clear
majjrity. This knowledge acts
as a tonic to our sick rooster.
Tom Worthley has put in a
new set of scales in bis cotton
yard that will give correct weight
even to a nat's eyebrow. The
old scales had been used so long
that they were not correct hence
were replaced by new ones. No
farmer need hesitate to take his
cotton to Worthly as he gets ab-
solutely correct weights.
Washita County Farmers'
The annual meeting of the
Washita County Farmers' Insti-
tute will be held in Cordell N >v.
22 and 23.
Secretary McNabb of the state
board of agriculture informs me
that he will be here on that day
with speakers from the experi-
ment station and the A. A M.
I wish to begin at once in ar I
range a program for the two j
days meeting. Heretofore I have
acted on my own judgment and
selected such subjects as I con
sidered most important to the
county. This year I wish to
pursue another plan. I want
the farmers who are to attend
the meeting to make their own
program as near as possiole.
And to ihisend I want every one
who is interested in any particu-
lar line of farm work that he
thinks would be of general! good
to have discussed at that meet
ug, to write rae ani mm i his
subject, and I will choose from
these requests those subjects in
which the majority are interest
ed. This plan gives every man
a chance to get something he is
partularily anxious about.
Pie<*se write me at once, so 1
cau know and have time to make
the best arrangement possiole.
We will mention the subjects
through the county papers in an
t-ff>rt to inform and interest t ve-
ry one. ,
N'tw, there will not oe a farm-
er who reads this but will have
have some subject come to him
in a moment. Then the very
next minute write me a card

The cooking exhibit at Lutz &
Co.'s store goes merrily on and
many people have seen and are
well pleased with the workings
of the Majestic Range. The tirst
joint of pipe has been removed
and a sheet of paper rolled up to
tit has been put in the place of
this joint of pipe to demonstrate
how little heat goes up the flue.
It will pay you to call and see
this cooking wonder work, if you
have not already done so.
Station Agent Fleming and one
of the Frisco brakemen had a
bad scare Wednesday morning.
They were unloading freight out
of a car and the agent held the
waybill against the door check-
ing, when the engine with sev-
eral cars bumped into thestand-
iug cars aud almost tumbled the
agent aud the braky to the
ground. As it was the only dam-
age done was the removing of a
section of cuticle from the agents
Iiev J. W. Barkei preached
his farewell serm. n at Cordell
last Sunday evening. He will
have charge of the congregation
at Foss as at present, and at
Clinton, making it more conven-
ient. for him to do his work. Rev.
Barker has many warm friends
here, both within and without
his church who regret this move
very much. We have not been
informed who will have charge
of the Cordell work.
Arthur J. Baker was arrested
Sunday evening by Deputy Sher
iff Bob Bledsoe on the charge of
vagrancy. He was taken to jail
to await his trial which comes off
today. He is the youDg man who
has been about town for several
weeks claiming to be a school
teacher, and whom lu&ny thought
was a woman masquerading as
a man. Mangum Sun-Monitor.
—1This is the same fellow who
was pulled out of a box car heie
by Deputy Sheriff Riggs to see
if tn was him or she was her.
Bobbjlr Fountain's big histori-
cal production of "Jim Bowie and
David Crockett" is to be here for
one grand night performance on-
ly on Monday, September 30.
This is one of the largest drama-
tic companies that has ever trav-
eled in the west, using 50 people
including cowboys, cowgirls,
soldiers and Mexicans; also Tex-
as ponies, dogs etc. to make this
the largest and best dramatic
performance to be seen under
canvass. Remember the date,
Monday, September 30.
.The census gives Cordell 1393
people which places the town
With in the list. It shows also
that Cordell is about fifty souls
larger than Weatherford, the
town which at one time consider
ed Cordell only a subur).
If Cordell had proper credit
for the people actually belong
ing to the town we would have
about 1550. These are in the
several five acre plats butting
against the corporate limits.

He leaves a wife, one son, four
daughters and two brothers to
mourn his loss.
Report reached Sheriff Ray's
office this morning that a farmer
named Reece, residing about
three miles north of Gotebo, shot.
Frank Cox, a young neighbor,
last night. The rumor is that I
Cox was paying attention to
Reece's daughter, which the
father had forbidden. Not de
sisting and paying no attention
to the warning of the father, it
is said that trouble arose as a re-
sult. Cox was shot in the leg,
but bis wound is not dangerous.
