MORE COTTON ESTIMATED
TWO BALES COTTON STOLEN
Sometime Monday night some per-
sons stole two bales of cotton from
the Emmett Talley farm six miles
southeast of Mangum. There were
nine bales of cotton stored in a shed
at the farm and the next morning two
of the bales were gone. Upon investi-
gation it was found that tho two bales
were rolled about 100 yards south
from the house and rolled over tho
fence to the road. The high wind
Monday night had obliterated all
tracks and it was impossible to deter-
mine if the cotton had been hauled
away in a wagon or in a truck. Offi-
cers were notified and a search is be-
ing made at all cotton markets in this
section. Mr. Talley offers a reward of
$25 for the cotton and the arrest of

According to the estimates put out
by the State Board of Agriculture,
Oklahoma will have 210,000 bales
more cotton this year than in 1921.
The final figures on last year's crop in
Oklahoma is 481,000 bales. The pres-
ent estimate on the crop for this year
is 691,000 bales. The State board gives
out the following in its letter of Oc-
'This office is getting in touch with
the Ginners, Bankers, in the cotton
counties and others interested in cot-
ton growing, asking for suggestions
and their opinions on the various
methods that were used in combatting
the Boll Weevil this ygar.
'Last year at this time there was a
meeting held in this office which was
attended by cotton experts from all
parts of the country. At this meeting
a Clean Up Campaign was suggested,
as this was agreed upon as one of the
best metthods that could possibly be
used. This Clean up Campaign should
be put on as soon after the cotton is
gathered as is possible and where it
was practiced Jast year and then fol-
lowed by a system of extensive culti-
vation during the growing season, the
results were most gratifying. Many of
those who have watched the cotton sit-
uation closely claim that this was the
big factor in increasing yields this
"Just as soon as material enough
is obtained from their men through-
out the cotton growing section, defin-
ite plans will be centered on and a
campaign launched. The Board of Ag-
riculture realizes that if any plan of
this kind is carried out successfully
that it must have the support of every
individual interested in cotton grow-
ing. If you have any suggestions, let
us have them."
PLANS FOR MANGUM'S
The finest program in the word
would not help us if we did not see
and hear it. It is the spirit we put in-
to a thing which measures and deter-
mines the good we receive from it.
Judging from this standpoint we
are to have one rousing, big, intense-
ly interesting Lyceum in Mangum this
year. There are seven big numbers,
the very best ever seen here. But best
o fall we have manifested such a wide
and general interest this year that it
seems certain the very greatest num-
ber will be benefitted. The profits will
go to the Public Library.
The whole community will therefore
be benefitted doubly. The educational
and inspirational value will be of
course best of all, but following close
up will be the stimulus and addition-
al efficiency and power to serve our
Public Library will gain.
At a meeting on Tuesday afternoon
each Church was represented and the
Ministers of several of the Churches
were present. Secretary Davis of the
Chamber of Commerce also pledged
cooperation of the entire Chamber of
Commerce. According to plans as ar-
ranged one ward of the City will be
in charge of each church. For instance
the First Ward might be canvassed by
the committees of the Methodist
Church. The second ward will be en-
tirely in charge of the Baptist Church
while the third and fourth wards
would be handled by the Christian
and Presbyterian Churches respective-
ly. Two committees from the Chamber
of Commerce will canvas the business
section. All committees will meet at
the court house at 9 o'clock next Mon-
day morning. It is planned to sell
300 adult season tickets at $2.00 each
and 200 tickets to pupils in the schools
at $1.00 each first day. This will guar-
antee a profit to the Library Associa-
tion. This year will be the first time
a direct attempt has been made
canvass all the Rural -High Schools,
and they will be offered season tick-
ets good for the entire seven num-
bers for $1.00. Each Consolidated
school will be urged to take advantage
of our Lyceum with its educational
opportunities. The first number is Oc-
tober 30. It is a very large and varied
musical program with both the instru-
mental and vocal numbers.
This number is of the class that
usually charges 75 cents, but by pur-
chasing a season ticket it can be
seen for 30 cents for adults and less
thart 15 cents for school pupils. The
season tickets take one to all the sev-

LOVETT'S FURNITURE SALE
The big sale at Lavett's has become
known all over the state throug trav-
feling men who have swarmed here for
orders. In the larger cities of Oklaho-
ma and in Texas it has become known
that Dovett's at Mangum, Oklahoma,
are having the most phenominal sale
of furniture and home furnishings in
the entire Southwest, this season.
Truck load after triick load of furni-
ture has been delivered to Elk City,
Hobart, Altus, Quanah, as well as to
the smaller towns of Greer and near-
by counties and to the farm homes of
many people. One unpleasant feature
of the sale was the burning of the big
Oldsmobile truck while it was return-
ing after having delivered a load of
furinture to a sister city. But this did
not retard deliveries as a new truck
was on the job within 24 hours, try-
ing to keep up with deliveries. Mon-
day night Mr. Neal drove until 10:00
The $50,000 stock has been greatly
reduced but Lovett's have their large
warehouse full of reserve duplicate
stock to fee sold at manufacturer's
prices. Mr. Lovett says he will take
a duplicate order for any article he
has sold during the sale and guarantee
to deliver it in 30 days at the same
prices as prevail during the sale. This
sale of sales will close Wednesday Oc-
tober 25, when the prizes wil bo
awarded. Prices will then be restored
