l)o You Want Them?
The merchant who desires to
reach the farmer and extend to
him an invitation to trade with
him, will find an excellent helper
through the columns of the
Southwest World. The greater
portion of our circulation is con-
fined to Logan county. This
paper has helped others, and it
can help you. Is not the farmers'
trade worth going after ?
Under the new contract enter-
ed into between the state of Kan-
sas and the territory of Oklaho-
ma, whereby the former main-
tains the latter's convicts at the
state penitentiary at Lansing,
all Oklahoma prisoners, found by
Kansas authorities to be insane,
must be returned to that county
in Oklahoma from which they
were sentenced. This throws
the maintenance of all such con-
victs on Oklahoma. They are
returned to this territory and then
under due process placed in the
asylum at Norman.
Therefore, today Governor
Ferguson after being apprised by
the Lansing prison physician
that the following convicts are
insane, ordered all of them re
turned to the territory for fur
Frank Ellis, a policeman who
murdered Farris Clayton here
two years ago, and sentenced to
life imprisonment, comes back to
Mary Conrey, a blind woman
sentenced for life from Lincoln
county on the charge of aiding
her daughter, Lydia Ilowland
in the murder of the latter's in
fant child in a hotel at Stroud
The Ilowland woman's case
now pending on an appeal to the
Oklahoma supreme court.
Conrad Mass, who murdered
his wife on a claim near Bridge
port, in Blaine county and sent-
enced to life, is returned to Wat-
Enoch H. Armstrng is return-
ed to Guthrie, John Sparks to

all life prisoners.
Kiowa county's second crop
season promises to end in a way
that will destroy all cavil as to
the future, of this as an agricul
tural county. Notwithstanding
a six weeks' drouth the remarka-
ble fertility and moisture-retain-
ing power of the soil is evinced
by the excellent condition of
vegetation over this county. Corn
that was planted early is well
matured and heavily eared, the
yield for it being figured from
thirty to sixty bushels an acre on
second breaking. Sod corn in
some parts will go from twenty
to thirty bushels an acre. Kaffir
corn and cane in some parts will
make an especially fine yield.
They are both drough-defying
plants and hence are proving a
staple crop in this country. No
matter how dry the season, they
are never failures. More than
an average yield of cotton is as-
sured, even though the early
part of the season was anything
but conductive to the germina-
tion and development of the
plant. It will be harvested as
early as usual, and the increased
acreage will mean large profits
for the cotton planters. As to
wheat and oats, little that is
<u<;finite regarding them can be
said, although the farmers ap-
pear to feel that the crop will be
big. Most of these grains have
been stacked, the producers hold-
ing them for expected higher
prices. So far the yields have
been twenty to forty bushels un
acre for wheat and from forty to
sixty-five bushels of oats.
George Miller, against whom
charges were dismissed of ship-
ping cattle over the iederal
quarantine line without proper
inspection, has instituted action
in the courts and with Secretary
Wilson, of the department of
agriculture, against Colonel Al-
bert Dean, Southwestern agent at
Kansas City, Mo., for the bureau
of animal industry, who is alleg-
ed to have ordered the charges
fiiled against George, Zach and
Joseph Miller, owners of the
"101" ranch in the Ponca reser-
vation, Oklahoma. Leslie J.
Allen, federal cattle inspector
for Oklahoma, is named as co-de-
fendant. George Miller claims
persecution at the hands of Col
Dean in that he was absent from
the ranch when the alleged cat
tie were shipped. At the prelim
inary hearing the charge against
him was dismissed, but his bro
thers were held to the federal
grand jury under bond. He asks
♦10,000 personal damages.
L. L. Patten has gathered his
crop of corn. It averaged about
eighty bushels to the acre, but
he only had in two lots.
