We are exceedingly late
with the paper this week and are
also very short on news, but we
feel that we have a lawful ex-
cuse . The editor has been down
a part of the time arid a part of
the time on crutches.
He has been afflicted several
weeks with erysipelas. His left
foot has never been noted for
its Cinderilla-like dimensions,
but he has been satisfied with it
because it has heretofore al-
ways been a good mate for his
right foot. But now it has as-
sumed enormous proportions
and looks as if it might belong
to one of the circus elephants.
Our printer has been sick a
part of the time and the only
one in the shop who has been
able to put in full time is the
linotype operator. But she has
been unable to operate the ma-
chine because the elytric light
plant, from which we obtain
our power, has been installing
new machinery and has been
out of commission nearly every
We have four full pages of de-
linquent tax notices in this is-
sue and which has taxed us to
the utmost. Quite a lot of good
live reading matter which was
already set and several ads
were crowded out.

M Richardson Captures
D. M. Richardson returned
Monaday from Oklahoma City
where he had been exhibiting his
fine hogs at the State Fair. He
is well satisfied with his
success there. He took six
hogs to the fair but exhibited
only five of them. He received
one first prize, four second prizes
and one ttiird prize.
He sent his large boar from
, Oklahoma City to the Dallas
I Fair and confidently expects to
i capture the first prize.
Mr. Richardson undoubtedly
has some fine hogs and is entitl-
ed to the prizes he<has received.

WOULD YOU EAT SALT PORK IF BREAK-
FAST BACON COST YOU LESS?
You assuredly would not. Then why do you feed
your cattle COTTONSEED when COTTON SEED
MEAL is so much better and costs you less. Why da
you? Is it because you do not know that Cotton Seed
Meal and Hulls are a better feed than raw cottonseed?
Or is it just because you have somehow never tried? H
the first reason suits your case, listen to this: the °EST
Authorities on the subject, among them our own Okla-
homa Experiment Station, say that ONE POUND or
Cotton Seed Meal and Hulls mixed in the proper pro-
portion is eqval to ONE AND ONE HALF POUNDS of
raw cottonseed. If the second reason fits your case,
read the rest of this ad and then bring us your seed; we
are going to pay you to do it IN CASH. Here's our prop-
For Every Ton of Cotton Seed
