Probably the best crop of alfalfa
ever raised in this section is now
being cut. Machines are busy in
every field and baling has commenc-
ed. The plant is very heavy but sum
shine all this week and a high wind
is curing it nicely and if we do
not have rain for a few days the
crop will be safely harvested and
put away. The first carload was ship-
ped out Monday and is coming in
all the time, but the real rush ^of
the crop to market will not begin un-
Cil the last of the week.
The price oepned at $10 a ton
but went off a dollar Wednesday
morning. Up to noon today eight
cars of alfalfa had been loaded with
plenty more in sight. The hay that
! coming in looks to be in ecxellent
i condition, but there i* some fear
i that that which was cut first may
burn before it reaches the market.
P. R. Smith is making arrange-
ments to place his patent culvert
form on the market and believes he
has a product that will sell readily.
When it known tVat with these
forms 36-inch concrete culvert can
be built for $22.50, figuring material
at the price at which it sells in
Wakita .whereas a steel tube the
same size costs $36, and the further
fact that everybody knows that the
concrete culvert is much more de-
sirable in every way, it looks as
though Mr. Smith really has good
reason to anticipate a ready sale
for his invention.
L. V. Posey, William Rixe and
Bob and A1 Biby last week contract-
ed for steel silos. Mr. Posey's silo
was wrecked by the wind a short
time ago and he lost no time in or-
dering another one to be ready for
use tills fall. A man that has used a
si lo will not do without one.
Misses Cora Palmer and Laura
Mauk and Mrs. Hardy camcf over
from Medford on the four oc'lock
train Saturday, returning home the
same evening with Fred Wright in
A petition requesting the town
board to pass an ordinance requiring
the removal of awnings and hitch racks
from Main Street was circulated last
week and signed by a majority of
those interested, in the belief that
it would improve the appearance of
Die street and enable the. town to
keep the street in better condition.
Plenty of hitch racks will be provid-
ed on the side streets before the
regulation is put into effect.
Tuesday evening the local Mason-
ic lodge gave the third degree to A.
L. Davis and after the work in the
lodge room was finished they re-
paired to the Commercial hotel and
sat down to an excellent lunch.

Grant County News:
The proposition to build a court
house in Alfalfa county was voted on
last week and voted down, 437 for
to 2077 against. Had Grant county
waited till now to submit the ques-
tion to the voters it would have met
a similar fate in this county. And
had the question of county seat re-
moval been postponed till now a big
majority of the voters would have
said, "No." "Medford was fortunate in
getting these questipns submitted be-
fore the crop failures."
Alfalfa harvest is in full blast in
this part of the state this week and
the farmers are cutting the best
crop ever raised in this county. The
alfalfa is clean, bright and of good
size. Scarcely any weeds or grass is
in it this year. Another thing- that
helps make this an exceptionally
good crop is that the plants did not
get any frost. Usually the first crop
gets more or less frostbitten, but
this year there has been no late
frosts that could nip the plants
G. A. Tanton is getting rich from
a patch of rhubarb, in the early
spring he sold his entire output at
eight cents per pound, but now the
prevailing price is two cents. He
supplies the Jefferson, Pond Creek
and Medford markets by wagon and
each day ships from 300 to 800
pounds to Enid and Wichita. The
price seldom goes below two cents
and when it does, Mr. Tanton shuts
up shop and lets the strength of the
plant remain the roots, thereby reap-
ing a benefit the next season. All
there is to the raising of rhubarb is
the buying and planting of the roots
and the raking in of the coin..

They make the trip over their routes
in two hours and forty-five minutes
on the average, thus delivering mail
to all patrons before noon and get-
ting back into town in time to send

C C A S IO NALLY
there comes to the
writing man a
story ready made
from actual hap-
penings before his
eyes. Or there Is
told to him some
tale that does not
require the slightest movement of lit-
erary machinery to weave it into
Bhape. The woof and warp are as
straight and true and compact as if
it had required hours of concentration
lo produce the fabric. Actual events
follow in such dramatic sequence that
it almost seems as if art had been
brought to bear upon their presenta-
Tho other day a magazine writer
visited the new state house in Boston
in order to see the decorations that
had been recently placed on the walls.
He was standing looking at the pic-
ture painted by Mr. Robert Reid. the
picture of Otis delivering his fiery
speech before the judges, when sud-
denly a voice spoke at his elbow.
Looking round, he saw standing be-
side him a short, slight man in a blue
uniform. It did not take Uie little
bronze button in the lapel of his coat
to label him as an old soldier. He
was stamped with it from the erect
carriage of l}te head and shoulders to
the glance of his keen gray eye.
"You have been through the build-
ing?" he asked suddenly. And upon
being told that it was the writer's first
visit, he politely offered his services
as guide. They were accepted prompt-
ly. The little man in blue pointed out
the old Hessian drum and sword, the
first musket captured from the British,
and the one that fired the shot at Lex-
ington. He knew stories of the fam-
ous portraits on the walls, and after
having examined the old senate and
council chamber, he led the visitor
down to the great octagon-shaped ro-
tunda, where, behind their plates of
glass, artfully grouped and festooned,
were the battle flags of the Massachu-
setts regiments—nothing but the bare
flagst&ffs of some, others mere shreds
of bunting hanging in pathetic fes-
toons, only a few with the colors in-
tact, pierced here and there with bul-
let holes. Stopping before the first
corner he began in his low, well-modu-
lated voice to explain about them.
There were two shafts, shattered and
roughly spliced a few inches below the
"Those two flags," he began, "were
given to the regiment by two sisters,
who were engaged to be married to
two officers; one a captain, the other
a lieutenant. As you see, the flags
were both hit in almost identically
the same spot, and under them both
officers were killed." Pointing to an
other flag he said, "Beneath this flag
seven men were killed and four were
wounded. It was decorated with a
•medal of hoaor." So it went on.
There was a story to almost every one
of the timeworn relics of the battle-
fields. At last the guide came to the
ease In the northwest corner of the
hall Immediately in front was a sil-
ken banner across whose faded red
and white strips was a big blotch of
brown. It needed no second glance
to tell what the blotch meant.

C. N. PALMER TO
LEAVE FOR OREGON.
C. N. Palmer will leave for Oregon
on Monday next, where he will do
some prospecting, hunting, fishing
and be a sight seeker in general. He
will enter into (« new part of the
state, where homesteads are yet to
be had, and he will represent some
forty or fifty of this place who will
follow later, if Mr. Palmer finds
something good that can be had at
price that will bear inspection.

"There is a story here," remarked
the visitor, and the little man in blue
looked at him keenly.
,"Yes' Bir' there is," he replied.
Three men were killed carrying that
flag at the battle of Appomattox; as
one would fall another would snatch it
up. and still they carried it forward.
As they went on, in the charge, a shell
exploded over the head of the last
man who had caught it, and a frag-
ment struck him in the arm. between
shoulder and elbow, cutting it off as
a surgeon's knife. He clasped the
;flag to his breast with the bloody
stump and staggered on. At last, as
be felt himself weakening, he turned
about, and, seeing near him a man in
his company who came from the same
town, he cried, 'For God's sake, take
it, Frank, I can't carry it any longer.'"
The visitor was breathless. "Well "
he said, "and then—"
"There is a strange ending to that"
returned the guide. "I was telling this
to some visitor only the other day
and had got as far as what I am tell-
ing you when a tall man with gray
hair, who was standing about where
you are now, spoke up. 'Comrade,' he
said, 'you're right! I was Frank'"
A few minutes later, as they went
down the corridor, the visitor asked
"And what was the name of the ser-
geant whose blood we see there9" hn
'His name was Plunkett," was the
answer. "There he is!"
A soldierly looking man in the blue
uniform of a messenger of the senate
came walking down the corridor The
magazine writer and his guide turned
toward him. Across his breast was
pinned an empty sleeve.—J. B in Har-
