OFFICIAL COUNTY PAPER
Wade Burnett Shot From Ambush 1 /
The sympathy of our people is ex- |
tended to Mr. and Mrs. J. J. Burnett;
in the loss of their eldest son Wade,'
which occurred Monday afternoon, j
Mr. Burnett and young son Wayne
were riding thru their pasture when i
the father discovered a cow he wished |
taken to the corral. He started his
son back with the animal about 5
o'clock, saying he would go by a j
windmill on his way. When he failed |
to return at the supper hour his wife
sent for his youngest brother Bert j
to search for him. Finding his horse i
at the gate with the saddle soaked |
in blood he immediately suspected I
foul play. Officers from Boise City |
were summoned and the pasture cov- j
ered by faithful neighbors and I
friends. His lifeless body was found j
about 9 o'clock in his pasture near
a farmer's house. He had never
reached the windmill, and from all
appearances the assassin was a j
crack marksman, as the bullet j
passed directly thru the heart. Wade j
was a big hearted, quiet, inoffensive
fellow, who would do anything for a j
friend and always did everything in ,
his power to avoid trouble. Until |
this came up it was not known that j
he had an enemy in the world. Be-
sides his parents, who live in Guy-
mon, he leaves a wife, a son, a step- j
son; two sisters, Mrs. Perry Brite of |
Las Vegas, and Mrs. Thomas White
of Boise City, and two brothers, Dunn
and Bert, both ranchmen on the Cim-
Will Furnish More Water
The little flurry caused by the con-
flagration in the law office of John
L. Gilson last Saturday afternoon
has caused some of our business men
to sit up and wonder just "where
they're at." Fortunately Mr. Gilson
was able to get all his books and fix-
tures out and little damage resulted
in that respect, and thru the strenu-
ous efforts of the firemen with a lib-
eral use of the chemical apparatus
the fire was extinguished and a part
of the building saved. Had it been
necessary, however, to depend on the
water supply to combat the flames
a good portion of the town would
have been swept away with its people
helpless to act. In one way the
fire was a good thing, as it aroused
the people to a point of action. Tues-
day night a number of business men
met with the city council and asked
for relief in the matter of fire pro-
tection. After discussion of the
proper course to pursue the town
board was made a committee to wait
upon the water company. We are
informed that this was done yester-
day and the company has agreed to
have pumps working in all four of
the wells in less than twenty days, it
is said, and to keep one of the two
standpipes full all the time for
emergency use. If this agreement is
carried out it will be a source of con-
siderable satisfaction to those who
have their "all" in the business sec-
tion of the town.
The attendance at Bible school was
good considering the fact that many
scholars are out of town at this time,
this being the usual vacation time.
In the change in lesson study from when he goes into a thing he usually
the New Testament to the Old Testa- carries it thru to a successful finish,
ment, it usually takes a little time I The Herald wishes him success.

Mordt Making Good
In a recent communication from
Anders L. Mordt to friends here he
states that at present he is promot-
ing the sale of sites and cottages at
one of the beautiful lake resorts in
north central Wisconsin. From the
views accompanying the letter he
should have no trouble in attracting
the buying public. Mr. Mordt is a
promoter of no mean ability and

During the hot winds of June some
damage was done but not an irrepar-
able one. With our exceptionally
hot dry weather growing stuff has
not suffered here as it has in the
central states from flood and cold.
The early farmer of the staked plains
learned that if the native stuff was
in the ground by the fourth of July
they made an abundance of feed.
So the Texas county farmer will again
take heart, enter into his task with
a right good will and leave the re-
sults for the harvest. A nice shower
fell on Sunday night, a better one
came Monday after night fall and
the best of all visited us about mid-
night on Tuesday. When the sun
arose on Wednesday the streets were
still flooded, so without a doubt the
ground received a good soaking.

Wind Damages Home
Altho a strong wind was blowing
during the rain storm Tuesday night
it was not thot hard enough to dis-
lodge a well built house from a firm
foundation. V. C. Cobb, 12 J miles
east of Guymon, came in Wednes-
day morning to see the agent of the
St. Paul Insurance Company. His
three room farm house was lifted
from its moorings and set down
about 40 feet away. The house was
so torn up that it will be necessary
to tear down and rebuild, altho the
occupants escaped unharmed and no
furniture was damaged.
The regular services will be held
at the church at the morning hour
of service. In the evening we will
be at the school house yard as usual
for a union service. We hope all
of our people both Methodist and
Presbyterian will make it a point to
be present at the union meeting. So
many of our people are away from
town we who remain must strain a
point to keep things going. Later
we will take our vacation and let
those who are away now, take charge
while we take a lay-off.

passing was most touching and the
whole town joins the Herald in ex-
tending a hand of gladness to the oc-
cupants of the "Roost." As a dem-
onstration of the high esteem in
which this noble character was held,
the entire personnel-of "roosters" fol-
lowed the remains thru the principal
streets of the town and to their last
Presbyterian S. S. Picnic
Members of the Guymon Presby-
terian Sunday school enjoyed a pic-
nic dinner on the Beaver near the
big bridge last Thursday and those
present made it an occasion long to
be remembered. The water was fine
and the big folks as well as the tots
took advantage of the opportunity to
wade; the table cloth (spread upon
Mother Earth) groaned from its
burden of good things to eat, while
every member vied with the other in
eating ice cream and cake that would
melt in your mouth. The Herald
editor is under a debt of gratitude
for the invitation to participate in
Hangs Out Her Shingle
Mrs. Worth Woodward returned
from a ten-day trip to Oklahoma City
and Sapulpa Thursday. At the lat-
ter place she visited with Mr. Wood-
ward's mother. While in Oklahoma
City she took the bar examination
in a class of 71, being one out of 62
who succeeded in passing. This is
the first lady attorney in the county
and a credit to the profession. She
was stenographer for several years
for the firm of Harris A Breslin and
her present achievement shows that
her spare moments were profitably
spent. She will forge her way to the
the persons chosen by thi< first draw-
ing will not likely be called to duty
until about September 1st, it is said.
Latest Player Piano Music
Mr. B. F. Garst will, in the near fu-
ture, put on sale at his place of
business an elegant up-to-date line of
player rolls. He has purchased from
the Universal Player and Roll Co. of
New York, fifteen hundred player
rolls in the very latest music that
can be obtained. It will be well for
you not to overlook this opportunity
Can't Keep 'Em on Hasd
W. D. Youtsler, popular manager
of the Star Lumber Company, was in
Tyrone Sunday in company with his
son and L. W. Booth, proprietor of
the City Garage and salesman for
Buick cars. Mr. Youtsler had pur-
chased one of these beautiful four-
cylinder Buicks and had gone up with
Mr. Booth to drive the car back. So
pressing has been the demand for
these cars of late that Mr. Booth has
had to draw on the quota of other
agents to fill h's orders, this being
the second within the last week or
ten days. He has been handling the
Buick line about a year now and has
long ago disposed of mdre than his
contract allowance, which not only
speaks in highest terms of Mr. Booth
as a car salesman but demonstrates
clearly that he has the goods to back
up his claim that the Buick models
cannot be surpassed in quality, style
and beauty for the same money. Earl
Murphy and Worth Woodward are
other late purchasers of the four-
cylinder model and Mr. Booth has
also distributed a number of the
Light Six models in his territory. He
is now expecting at any time the
arrival of one of those big, seven-
to purchase some player music, as
the stock will be more complete than passenger models and will be glad
one can find in the city. Watch for to demonstrate it to all prospective
his ad. purchasers.
Jesse Pate, who has been employed
In the county treasurer's office for
some months, has accepted a posi-

his duties Monday morning.
