OKLA. STATE FAIR &
September 21 to 28, 1918
The Inola Club spent last Tuesday
at the school house. In the morning
they worked on records and stories.
The afternoon was spent in canning.
We canned apples in several ways.
Would you like the receipt for can-
ii.ng baked apples?

On the 24th of this month, after 10
years of separation, the Alberty fami-
ly were treated to a reunion of all
their five children, at their old home
on East Third street, where Mr. and
Mrs. E. C. Alberty are now living
again, with their two youngest chil-
dren, Bernice and Jamie. Cecil came
up from Anadarko, where he has been
engaged in the tailoring business for
four years. On his way up he stop-
ped at Tulsa, and had his sister, Mag-
gie, come with him. They called Mrs.
S. W. McCulloch up and had her come
on the first train. This was a com-
plete surprise to their parents. How-
ever, the surprise was a very pleasant
one, and was converted into a social
event that was enjoyed by the whole
family. Cecil and Maggie returned on
the 11:24 over the Frisco Sunday night
and Mrs. McCulloch remained with her
parents until Tuesday at 1:38 when
she returned to her home at Miami.
Their visit being followed by the big
crowd that came to the city to see the
125 Rogers county boys depart for
«. amp Pike made the weekend and the
beginning of this week very pleasantly
It is hoped by Mr. and Mrs. E. C.
Alberty that there will be others of
these surprising days and that they
will be permitted to enjoy them for
several years to come, as it is always
a source of great pleasure to parents
in their declining years to have their
children visit them.
While the children were all at home
at this time the occasion recalled many
pleasunt days spent at this home by all
the children, and of course it was very
enjoyable to the parents to hear the
merriment and laughs of all their chil-
dren together once more. While they
fully realized what it means to have a
precious boy go away to war at this
time, when the greatest war known to
history is now raging "over there,"
they are like all other patriotic par-
ents ready to consent for him to go to
fight a nation with such an inhuman
and brutal record as Germany has.
The parents are hopeful that he, with
many other precious boys who have
gone "over there," will return to them
in safety after the war is over.
The "Little Helpers" made quite a
success of their ice cream supper at
Lone Elm last Friday night, the pro-
ceeds going for W. S. S. The club
gave the culb play. "Uncle Sam's
Friends," which was enjoyed by all
present. Quite a number of Clare-
more people attended. Messrs. F. S.
Walker and A. A. Dennison gave inter-
Elizabeth Kersh, from the Inola
club; Hazel Foster, from the Lime
stone club, and Octavia Miller, from
the Sageeyah club, were present and
were pleased with the play.
Seventy-three boys and girls in Rog-
ers county joined the Poultry chilis
this year. Thirteen of this number
have moved away, leaving sixty now
belonging. Our county sent in 81 per
cent of reports. Ninety-one per cent
was the highest sent in by any county.
Why could ours not have been one
hundred per centFrom the reports
that were sent in we find that forty
children have fulfilled the require-
ments and are entitled to exhibit at
the Fair, fifteen made brooders, thir-
ty-four bought pure-bred eggs and
approximately 2300 chickens have
IT PAYS TO RETHRESH THE
Ben Matthews had 150 acres of his
grain threshed. He then sold the
straw stack to Bill Smith, who pro-
ceeded at once to Hooverize a little
and rethresh the straw.
He paid to Mr. Matthews $100 for
the straw stack and at this time has
more than his money back. To date,
and he is not thru threshing the straw
yet, he has threshed out 265 bushels
of oats, which at 70 cents per bushel
will bring him $185.50, a profit of
He expects to get fully 300 bushels
of oats out of the entire stack. This
ordinarily would have gone to waste
but it now adds that much more to the
food supply with which to whip the
