HON. WILLIAn H. TAFT
The Hollis boosters are very
anxious to have the election in the
southern part of Looney and Hollis
townships result in a decision to
remain in Greer county, because
if that territory is cut off from
Greer Hollis' hopes of ever getting
to be a county seat will be blasted.
We have talked with a number
of citizens of the territory in ques-
tion and while they dislike the
idea of being severed from Old
Greer yet they believe it will be
much more convenient to have
their county seat at Olustee,
which is twelve to twenty miles
from them, instead of at Mangum,
which is forty miles away, but they
would be but little nearer their coun-
ty town if Altus wins the county seat
Who Will Be The Next President?
The action of the people next
November, will decide that, but
in tha meantime there are other
things to think about.
The comforts of HOME, are dear
to every citizen, and it is necessary
for the most of us, to economize,
in order that we may gain that end.
In this connection we desire to
call your attention, to the fact,
that you can buy Mangum Flour,
for less money, than any other
flour, and the quality we guaran-
tee. We are hers every day of the
year to make that guarantee good,
as our busness depends on it.
WE ARE NOT GOING OUT OF
BUSINESS, BUT THE BIG SALE
RUNS THE YEAR ROUND, and
anyone can buy, at any time, White
Rose flour at ten cents per hundred
above our wholesale price. We
mean business and will do just as
we say. The oat market is not
going to be as strong as it was last
year, we judge from our market
reports, and in view of the prevail-
ing high prices of feed stuffs,
think it would be well for the
farmers to hold enough oats for
feeding their work stock till oats
Wheat is declining in the specu-
lative market, but there is no tell-
ing what effect the excessive rains
will have. It is worth around 70c
per bushel this track now.
We will be in the market, for
both wheat and oats, and will be in
a position to pay top prices.
Plenty of Ave bushel oat bags
at 10c each. Plenty of McAlester
Lump Coal at $7,50 screened. Re-
member White Rose is $1.15 per
sack. If you want to know what
we are doing, call us up, PHONE

the young man, uncomfortably.
