Singular Single-Homed Sheep
Exhibited at the recent State Fair
From the Oklahpma City Times:—,
The greatest free attraotion at the Fair grounds
is a single horned sheep exhibited by the New State
Serum Company in a pen at the southwest corner of
the Boys' and Girls' Club pavilion. A perfectly form-
ed horn protrudes from the center of the animal's
forehead, giving it a most unusual appearance. The
Creak "woolly" is well worth seeing.

The fact of the serum of our manufacture being
used by the United States Government is the best
evidence of its high quality—it is not excelled; it an-
swers every requirement for the prevention of hog
cholera; it is manufactured in the laboratories of
the most responsible concern in the country.
But the Matter of Conven-
ience in Ordering Serum
is of Great Importance
When serum is needed it is usually wanted at the
earliest possible moment, and for this reason we
have established rapid delivery service to facilitate

Greer County Breeders A Seed Grow-
ers Association, their wives and child-
ren, to attend the splendid show we
will have on Monday, April 16th, be-
tween the hours of 11:00 a. m. and 2

them witness one of our photoplays
free of charge.
All that will be required for admis-
sion will be the presentation 'of the
association's membership catd, issued
to all members by acting secretary, R.
A. Singtetary to men who are mem-
bers, and who may become members
of the breeders and seed growers as-

The membership card will admit mem-
bers, their wives; and children; pre-
sent them at the door of the theatre.
We extend this courtesy to the
breeders and seed growers as an evi-
dence of our being anxiou* to have
them succeed in their efforts.

We are situated in such a way that our only resources lie in the P^hw*
tion of the farms surrounding us. As to the importance of 'fa"11 P™?.?
we would suggest that we all consider first of all, what we could do without
food to sustain us. The products of the farm therefore, should take first place
in all business enterprises, as we have to have them in ordeyto live. That
being the case, it would be a short-sighted policy in any town, or city, not to
foster and build up that upon which it depends for its own life.
" We .have always thought, and we have had no occasion^
... .. bringing to town
enough of his products each week to pay his running expenses, is the man
who will find himself in a better shape in the fall, than those who .depend up-
on the one crop idea, and buy their supplies on credit. -
There is another item that should be carefully considered on every farm
and that is the conservation of the feed ch>p. It seems tto us that it is useless
to raise feed, if it is not going to be saved. Better facilities should be provid-
ed for the B«ving of feed, to the end that more stock is handled a the same
cost for feed. Waste has no place in good business management.
It might be well right about this time to say something to Mr. Landlord.
We hear a great many of those who are renting farms say, that they are
obliged to plant an excessive ace rage of cotton in order to obtain the farm.
In many instances they are not allowed to keep any stock of their own on
the place. This may be alright from the Landlord's point of view, Init it is
also a debatable question, as the tenant has his side of the question.
If a man is worthy of being trusted with the handling of valuable farm
, shn-es. he should also be worthv of the confidence of the Land-
lord in handling live stock, on the same basis. If he is not he is no good
tenant and should, be eliminated. Live stock will maintain the fertility of the
soil, and the proper rotation of crops will brine results not to be obtained by
cotton year after year. . .
We cordially invite anyone to visit our place of business in Mangum, as-
suring each and every one a hearty welcome and all that the courtesy of
good business extends to its customers.

OR. M. E. MILLER SAYS:
There can be no question about the
great benefit a strong breeders and
seed growers association will be to
this section, and the more fofr better
live stock and things launched by its
members is extremely worthy and
merits the support of all progressive
and public spirited citizens.
With a membership of three or fou
hundred men interested in the agri-
cultural and live stock improvement
of the county great strides should be
made towards making Greer the great
est county in Western Oklahoma.
Further, it is a rare privileege to be
identified with the effort of making
a "breeders and seed growers day" at
Mangum a success, and I am taking
advantage of this occasion to express
my willingness to do anything in my
power to advance the good cause.
Monday, April 16 will be a day of big events in Mangum. On that date,
Mangum will be host to one of the largest gatherings of live stock men and
seed growers ever assembled in the state. Various programs hava been ar-
rani<ed tnd it is predicted that the membership of the Greer County tireeders
and Seed Growers Association will jump over the 200 mark.
Beginning at 10 o'clock there will be a stock show on the square. A. J.
Henthorn of Oklahoma City will judge horses and mules; James A Wilson
of the government agricultural forces will judge the cattle and a sheep and
hog expert from Oklahoma City will judge this division.
In the afternoon there will be a meeting of the Association at which the
Hon. Frank M. Gualt, president of the State Board of Agriculture will make
an address. Mr. Gualt is vitally interested in the development of the agri-
cultural and live stock resources of the state and has been identified with
every movement looking to this end.
The crowning event of a perfect day will be a banquet at the court house
at which some of the foremost cattle men of the Btate will be present. The
speakers will in elude Mr. Gualt, E. G. Eldridge, R. C. Rildey, ft. E. Mont^
fcomery, John Whitehurst, T. H. McLemore and Fred W. Leach.
Arrangements have been made to feed upward of 600 the sweets of the
land. Everything from soup to nuts will be on the menu. - ^
BITS O' BREATH FROM A BANKER.
It is possible that no institution in this section of the state appreciates
the great benefits to be derived from a srong bidders and seed growers as-
sociation to a greater extent than the Guarantee State Bank. It is a pleasure
to support any move intended to better the live stock and agricultural condi-
tions of the community. The active interest in all matters promulgated b"
.this institution in an effort to improve the breedsjind more thoroughly, stocl

BREEDERS RELATION TO THE OZARK.
Breeders, seed growers, good roads enthusiasts—in fact every man wo-
man and child in this section of the country should be interested in improving
the live stock, farming conditions and roads, for the reason that all are ben-
efitted by betterments of this sort. „ ' ...
There is perhaps no single concern more concerned in this matter than
this establishment, and with this in mind, supporting the present movements
advocated by the Greer County Breeders and Seed Growers Association is
spontaneous and pleasing. . •
Good live stock, good seed and good roads are as essential as good auto-
mobiles. For instance, the best live stock is compared with the best cars;
road work should be done with the same thoroughness ac the repairs at the
Oxark Garage. Both are Essential to permancy, and good roads and good
automobiles are almost synonimoug.
What better car for the breeder and seed grower than the Reo or Dort!
The prices are such that one may choose either; both will save the man on
the farm hours upon hours of time—which means dollars and cents— besides
affording a pleasure car in which to take the family visiting on Sundays and
other days when business does not require attention. -
Visiting friends in a Reo, or a Dfcrt, is a pleasure. Both cars are stylish,
and command a favorable comment wherever seen; besides they are of the
most substantial construction, easily operated, seldom or never out of re-
Pair'™s esUbliahment exte^ds^hearty invitation to every member of the
Greer County Breeders and Seed Growers Association to visit the Ozark
Garage to talk automobiles and repairs over. A single demonstration will
suffice to convince all members of the organisation that a Reo or a Dort is
the ear for the country as well as the town.

Serum Saves Hogs
With a record of having successfully vaccinated ovsr a hundred thous-
and hogs at the Oklahoma National Stockyards at Oklahoma City during the
past twelve months with New State Scrum, there is no longer doubt as to
the potentiality of this brand. The'largest hog men in the state have been
using New State exclusively with entire success and satisfaction, and the
herds of hundreds of men living in different sections of Oklahoma have suc-
cessfully immunited their swine against hog cholera.
The New State Scrum Company, of Oklahoma City, the largest raanufat*
turer of anti-cholera serum, perhaps In the United States, is ever ready to
coopemte with hog men in eradicating hog cholern. Where there are a few
men who wish their herds immunized, an expert will be sent to do it
Another thing. There is scarcely a bank in the state who is not willing
to accommodate their customers by ordering scrum for them. The order is
telephoned to the New State serum company, and forwarded by first express.
Bear in mind that the record above recited was made by New State se-
rum, positively effective and absolutely potential—the serum that will prevent
cholera in herds.
Have either the local veterinarian, banker, or New State Agent order
for you. There will be no delay—the serum and virus will reach you by the
