The State Register has heard many
expressions from those hearing the
Booster Hand last Friday that they
would like to hear it at Highland
Park this Friday. The automdbile
people would like to drive there; as
it will be moonlight night and those
on foot would take the street cars.
Now if the street car company would
give half of the receipts to the band
the thing could be fixed. Some church
could also serve ice creamed peaches,
as a celebration ot' the end of the pick-
ing season and give part of the re-
ceipts to the band. Why not have a
change of diversion?

HOW COTTON GROWERS MAY
MAKH MONEY BY HOLDING
Guthrie, Okla., August!), li)15.
TO COTTON GROWERS:
On account of the continued war in Europe the prospects
are that the coming cotton crop will sell at a very low price un-
less the growers arrange to store their cotton and sell it gradu-
ally. This is the idea of farmers, bankers, and other business
men all over the cotton growing country. In order to accomplish
this result two things are necessary:
First, proper warehouse facilities. The Pioneer Cotton
Mills of Guthrie have a brick warehouse, with a capacity of five
or six thousand bales, properly bonded under the laws of the
State of Oklahoma, and make the following storage charges which
are fixed by the State law:
75c per bale for the first month.
15c per bale for each month thereafter.
Payable when cotton is taken out of warehouse. This charge
covers all cost to the farmer which includes fire insurance to the
full value of the cotton.
Second, the farmer must be able to obtain loans up to a
reasonable amount of the value of the cotton in order to defray
expense of picking and gintiing and other incidentals. In this
connection the Federal Reserve P.ank has notified all its members
throughout the cotton growing section that they will furnish an
abundance of money, taking receipts issued by bonded ware-
houses as security therefor.
— The Pioneer Cotton Mills of Guthrie solicits the storage of
bale cotton in this vicinity and will assure the grower that he can
readily obtain loans against its warehouse receipts from members
of the Federal Reserve bank and at a rate of interest not exceed-
ing 10 per cent, and possibly less.
Farmers who stored their cotton last fall when it was selling
around 6c per pound in a great many instances realized as high
as 9c and we feel quite sure (.hat during the coming cotton season
farmers vftlo avail themselves of our warehouse facilities will
benefit themselves fully as much as last fall if not more.

Famous Kansas -Ortranization Turns
lis Activities to New kind of
Topeka, Kan., Aug. 14.—The Kan-
sas Anti-Horse Thief Association an
organization of nearly 40,000 men, no
longer has to devote its energies to
hunting down horse and cattle thieves.
The activities of the association have
been so succesful that few men under-
take *to steal a horse any more. But
nearly all the members of the associ-
ation orwn motor cars, and the organi-
zation is seeking authority to hunt
down motor oar thieves. It finds that
more losses to its members come
through the stealing of motor cars and
spare -tires than through the theft of
horses or cattle.
The A. H. T. A. was organized along
the southern iborder of Kansas .10
years ago to drive out horses and cat-
tle thieves who lived in the then Ind-
ian Territory and who came across the
line, made their raids and returned
to the wilds of the Indian country,
where the local officials could not get
It is a mutual organization. Ea<-h
member plages !his own help and
makes contributions to pay the bills
each Vear. *
When a member of the association
4ost a horse or two or a hunch of cat-
1 tie, he notified the association. Bvery
' me-miber was called out and began the
| chase. In a few years the horse and
cattle rustlers had been driven out of
i Kawsas, as the association put 30 men
in prison in two years and recovered
more than 100 head of horses and cat-
tle for the members in the first year
Since then the association has
grown to eover the state and has
spread in 14 other states. About ten
years ago a gang of bank roibbers be-
gan raiding Kansas. In five months
43 banks were robbed. The bankers
envployed high-priced detectives and
special officers, but they didn't round
up the robbers. Then the bankers got
together and organized a protective
association of their own, (but even
this did not stop the raids. Finally the
bankers, almost as a body, asked to
Join the Anti-Horse Thief Association
and did join. The night watchmen for
the banks were discharged. In six
weeks 11 men were in jail and in five
months nine of the men were in the
pt-nitentlary under 16-year sentences
for bank robbery. All .but one are
The plan followed was the same as
when a ihose was stolen. A person who
heard the robbers called the telephone
exchange and the central operator
t ailed # very member of the associat-
ion In the county.
As a result it often happened that
before the robbers were able to leave
town every road was patroled by arm-
ed men wiho w?re hidden fbehind trees
and embankments. There hasn't been
•but two bank roibberies in Kansas in
The association hunted down all
sorts of farm thieves. Once a posse of
farmers rounded up two chicken
thieves and turned them over to the
Sheriff. A lawyer attempted to save
his clients by the plea that the mem-
bers had no authority to make arrests
unless they saw the crime committed.
The case went to the Supreme Court,
but the men were not released. TJhe
Court suggested, however, that a pro-
'per legislative afct authorizing itlhe
organization to protect themselves
would solve the difficulty. A law in-
corporating the association and in ef-
fect making each menVbcr a law-en-
forcing officer was passed.
But that was before the days of the
motor car and chasing motor car thie-
ves Is not one of the specified duties
of the association. The association
has sent a notice to all members that
them men would be called out to chase
motor thieves and the legislature
would be asked to make proper amend-
ments to the charter. In July five
cars were recovered for members and
two men are in Jail awaitng trial.
The association chased the car thie-
ves to Kansas City, where the men
were dismantling and rebuilding the
cars and then selling them.
The Booster Band concert last Fri-
day evening was attended by the usual
large crowd, and those in attendance
were well repaid for their presence, as
Prof. Ryan had a splendid program ar-
ranged for the evening, and so well
was the program rendered that the
vast, crowd responded with enthusias-
tic applause after each selection. F.
j. Hcilman as usual furnished scats
for a good portion of the large crowd.
The Booster Band concerts which
are given each week free to the public,
have certainly made a hit with the pro-
gressive people of. this city, and the
band is an organization that the citi-
zens are justly proud of. It required
much work and sacrifice on the part of
the Booster boys to organize and equip
the band, but by splendid efforts, aid-
ed by the public spirited citizens and
merchants of the city, they were able
to succeed. After the weather becom-
es too cool for open air concerts, Col.
R. G. Stlffey, working in conjunction
with Mr. E. E. Parsons, chairman of
the entertainment committee of the
Young Men's Booster club, intends to
give some high grade indoor concerts
In addition to the Booster Boys, the
following business firms and profes-
sional people have helped to maintain
the baud and to make it possible for
the citizens to enjoy these splendid
