Report has been received at Wakita
that Hoy Parker lias received) a sen-
tence or fifteen years in the peniten-
tiary for soiling liquor to the Indians.
Wakita is getting to be quite a fancy
chicken center and t'. E. Brooks
thinks he has some line barred Ply-
month rocks. This 7 pring he shipped
sqveral cockerels to points at a dis-
tance. sending one to Wisconsin and
three to Anadarko, Okla.

to purchase another jack to add to the

Word was received in Wakita Sun-
day that .John llatlield, formerly of
this place but who was living near
Ponca City, was struck and killed by
a Santa Fe train at o'clock Sat-
urday evening at a crossing just south
of Ponca City. Vint Hatfield went to
3onca City Monday and brought his
father home on the evening train.
The funeral was conducted from the
Hatfield home in Wakita by IT. N.
Gowan of the M. 10. church Tuesday,
and the children and friends of the de-
ceased took the corpse to Bluff Citv
for interment iu the cemetery there.
From reports of the accident it seems
that Mr. Hatfield was in a wagon
driving west, and the engineer of the
south bound train No. which struck
John, was sitting in the opposite side
of the cab and Tailed to notice him.
Some people who were near when the
accident happened said the team be-
came unmanageable and ran squarely
into tlje engine. When the train
truck the wagon, the occupant was
thrown fifty feet. Both legs were
broken and internal injuries were re-
ceived. He lived about ten minutes.
The train backed to Ponca City to re-
port the accident and the body was
left where it fell and turned over to
the coroner. The wagon was cut
squarely in two and the horses, un-
injured, ran away with the front part.
Mr. Hatfield has lived near Ponca
City since leaving Wakita several
years ago. I Io had been to town to
transact his Saturday's business.
We wisli io explain to Hit* business
men our reason for requiring copy for
their advertisements to he in bv Tuesday
noon for first and fourth pages and Wed-
nesday no.in for inside. Our reason is
lliL: Most merchants advertise so the
farmers who come to town on Saturday
may t.u-<- advantage of what they are nf-
leriitg In order to have the STAR
reach tliein it must appear Thursday.
If we ace. pt adds after Wednesday noon
and a rush of advertising comes in or
there are a number of changes we
camp t get them set up in time to print
and mail the paper Thursday. As far as
we are concerned it makes no difference
to us whether the paper is printed Thurs
'lay oi Friday but we desire to give our
advertisers this advantage and hope no
one may lie offended if we refuse to
change an ail after lime specified. It is
io your interest we are working and de-
sire your help. Get up your copy as
arly in tlie week as possible; give the
Hunter a little time and your ad will he
set better and the paper will reacli the
reader in time to be read before doing
his Saturday trading.
The ice and butter plant is an assured
i icl as llie site has been located and nia-
iirid is being battled for its erection
which will lie done as fast as men and
money can do it. We have the best

ever)* business that will add population
and wealth should be gladly welcomed.
There is no reason why this should not
be a pacing investment from the very
The Millinery opening of Miss Pearl
Mi iiybon lust Saturday was a great suc-
cess. A large crowd was in town and a
large number found their way to Miss
Monyhon's store which was beautifully
decorated for the occasion. Her stock

a bean ti' al place. Neat souvenirs bear-
ing in one corner a picture of Miss Penal

NAKLID IN THI- STREET
Special tu the Capital
| While Oklahoma City has for the past
| few days been the Jerusalem for an un-
usual number of traveling evangelists,
the limit was reached this afternoon
when James Sharpe, his wife and small
son and John Aitken marched down one
of the most thickly populated streets of
the city without a stitch of clothing.
They were promptly arrested and taken
to police court late this evening, adjudg-
ed insane by the county board and all
but the boy sent to the asylum at Nor-
man. When before the police court,
Aitken said he was Gotl, Almighty King
of Kings and Lord of Lords. lie was
formerly a barber at Cleveland, Ohio.
Sharpe and family lived at Woodward,
Oklahoma two years ago. He has an
older son in Portland, Oregon. He says
several months ago a star fell and he
was revealed as an angel, and since that
lime has been consecrated by the Lord.
The scene created by these people caus-
ed the greatest sensation known for some
time. The city has been overrun by
these gospel expounders and two new
ones arrived this evening from Michigan.
At last a man has boon found who
11 accept Joe Miller's offer of $1,000
t" have his scalp lifted by old Geroni-
mo, at the 101 ranch during the ente-
tainment given for the National Edi-
torial Association. A man by the
name of Jim Scott of Kansas City, is
tiie man that wants the'1,000. He's
welcome to it as far as we are con-
cerned. -Valley News.
