Took Sweep-stake Preminm.
What do you grow in Oklaho-
ma? That is the first question
an outsider will ask an Oklaho-
man. In answer to the query we
publish a list of products raised
by T. W. Martin, the Footless
Farmer, on his farm one mile
east of Canton. Mr. Marten took
the sweep-stake premium at the
Blaine County Fair held at Can-
ton, September 18-21, 1907. He
had a total of 54 varieties.
Every item in the list was rais-
ed on his farm, he and two sons,
aged 12 and 14, doing the work
and cooking their own grub.
Field Corn, 3 varieties

RAT DOES TRAPEZE ACT.
Walk* Telegraph Wire, Beset by Spar-
rows Until the End.
A gray rat walking along an electrte
wlra 30 faet above the ground for
many bloeks furnished a novelty on
West Baltimore a tree t. The feat,
which excels that of any trick rat ever
exhibited in a show, would seem a
dream of the tmaglnaUon but for the
fact that the spectacle is absolutely
vouched for by thousanda of persona
who watched the strange sight from
alx o'clock until elgnt. Beset by a
number of English sparrows, which
seemed to take a fiendish delight In at-
tacking the badly handicapped rodent
he at times varied hla steady gait
along the wire by acrobatic perform-
ances calculated to ward off the at-
tacks of the birda. He would sit up
on his haunches on the slender wire,

WHEN A "HUNCH" HELD GOOD.
Chinese Laundry Ticket Suggested a
Bet on "Wing Ting."
Kay -Spence, a well-known horseman
of Mexico, Mo., won $1,000 at the
Lonlavllle, Ky., race meeting a short
time ago aa the result of a "hunch."
Mr. Bpence baa a large breeding
■table of "runners" near Mexico, and
attends all the big racing events In
the country. Not long alnce he was"
In Louisville and entered tne betting
ring to see what odds were being of-
fered on the various entries. lie
found that Joaquin was the favorite
at even money, and pulled his wallet
4rom hla pocket, intending to bet on
that horse. His attention was at-
tracted by something that fell from
his wallet to the ground, and he stoop-
ed and picked it up. It was a Chi
nese laundry ticket. He looked at
the "books" again and found that there
an entry with a Chinese naoie.
Wing Ting, at ten to one. That Bet-
tied it. for he considered he had re-
ceived a "hunch" that could not be
overlooked. Wing Ting won handily.
Needless to say, those who backed the
favorite considered Spence the sev-
enth son of the aeventh son.—Kansas

The Blessedness of Giving.
The tremendous benefactions of
Carnegie and Rockefeller are having
the effect, we are told, of giving the
small-fry philanthropists cold feet and
scaring them out of the game, until
It comes to pass that the man who has
only the beggarly $100,000 or so, to
bestow, evinces a decided disposition
to buy fun less expensive, if likewise
less intense with his money. This
goes to suggest that philanthropists
are but flesh and blood, after all, and
hanker not to enter In a race where
they are to be not only beaten but
distanced at the poat. The widow's
mite Is unexceptionable, of course,
and it seems a pity that nobodty hears
the widow's name thundering down
Satisfied aa It Was.
a Richmond (Va.) minister not long
ago was asked to perform a marriage
ceremony by a young negro coupln,
says Harper s Weekly. As he had em-
ployed the groom for a year or two,
he consented, knowing what prestige
would come to the couple by reason of
having been married by a white minis-
ter. At the appointed time the happy
pair arrived and the ceremony pro-
ceeded. "Do you take this man for
better or for worse?" the minister
asked. For all her shyness the bride
apoke up bravely. "No, sah! ah don't,"
she said. "Ah'll take him Jest like
he Is. If he was ter get any better,
I s 'frald he'd die; an' if he was ter
get any wuss, ah'd kill him myself "
