On February 24th we laid to rest
in the South Burns grave yard one
of the old settlers of Washita county,
Wm. P. R. Hall, who passed out of
this life at an early hour Thursday,
Bro. Hall was born on Beach Creek,
Clinton county, Pa., May 2nd, 1858.
He married Miss Emma Rose at Pa-
villion, 111., on Jan. 8th, 1884; to them
were borne nine children, seven of
whom still live. They, together with
his wife, some brothers and a sister,
sorrow at his going away.
He came to Washita county from
Kansas at the opening of the coun-
try, and settled on a place 2 miles
north of Dill City.
Bro. Hall was converted in boyhood
and joined the M. E. Church, later he
joined the Methodist Protestant, be-
cause the M. E's. had no work in his
community, and for the same reason
he later joined the M. E. Church,
South, in whose communion he re-
mained until his death.

and large operating expense. The Sedan is
like the other more than two million Fords in

economical car to run that was ever built. The

guaged by the time occupied at mar-

the agriculturalists over the shortage
of help this year it is imperative,
leading cultivators point out, that the
farmer be permitted to remain as
much as possible on his acreage. Oth-
erwise the nation at large must suffer
from insufficient production. Motor
trucks can relieve him of this burden
entirely—government motor trucks.
If the corporation between farmer
and consumer through the "farm to

government hopes it will be, officials
declare it Is a foregone conclusion
that the thousands of motor trucks in
service and being constructed for the

turned over to the postal authorities

permanent institution. Shipment of
