Happenings of Interest From Our
Grant County and Other Near
From tho Anthony Bulletin.
Who can beat this? Lyman and
Corley planted alfalfa on August 18
and the showing of the planting is a
growth of 36 inches from tip to tip.
Twelve or fifteen years ago when
the populists wanted subtreasuries
and an elastic currency, they were
hooted at as calamity howlers clam-
oring for a wildcat currency. Within
the past week there has been very
much similar ideas advocated by high
financiers over the country, and even
Roosevelt has given voice to a similar
From the Waklta Herald.
It is reported that R. Schuelke,
who sold his farm this fall, has pur-
chased B. D. Miller’s place. He
visited several different locations,
some of them in Nebraska, but
couldn’t find anything like Grant
county, so of course came back to buy
a farm although he had to pay a
handsome price for it.
E. M. Garrett is erecting a fine resi-
dence on his farm, the Anderson place
he purchased last fall. The main
house is 30x24, with an ell 22x16, all
two stories high. It will indeed be a
handsome farm house, and Ed. and
his family deserve it. They went
through the hard times with the rest
of the old guard and have earned a
Fron tlie Byron Republican,
The bank opened Monday and has
been keeping the rule of paying but
$5 to any one depositor three times a
week. The excitement has to a cer-
tain extent subsided and it will not
be long till business can be resumed
on the same solid bases as before the
Wall Street Hurry.
The Alfalfa mills are adding value
to alfalfa growing to the extent that
every farmer who has alfalfa land will
increase his acreage another year.
The mills are offering 010 and til per
ton for bailed alfalfa hay on track
here at Byron. When you stop and
consider the income on 30 acres, of
alfalfa, for instance, it is no wonder
that alfalfa is all the talk. 30*acres
of alfalfa cut four times In the season
will produce at the least 150 tons of
hay. Multiply 150 tons by even 07 and
you can get some idea of the value of
From tho turnout New..
Hon. Ed. Brazell and A. G. Thomp-
son returned Monday evening from a
council of the faithful at Guthrie.
Mrs. Thompson and littl* one re-
turned with them from Blackwell,
where they had spent Sunday.
The two year old daughter of Mrs.
Cord Young drank concentrated lye
last Friday and is In a critical condi-
tion, its mouth and throat being se-
verly burned. After this injury the
child was left asleep In her cradle and
was attacked by a large rat. The rodent
bit the child several times and left
only when frightened away by the
mother who heard the child’s cries,
the baby was covered with blood from
the wound?. Mrs. Young was an old
resident of this community but now
From the Waldron Argus.
At the telephone meeting Wednes-
day evening a deal was completed
whereby the rural telephone lines out
of Waldron become owners of the old
joint building on North Main Street.
They purchased this building of the
Findley boys, paying 1200 for It. Cen-
tral will be moved into the room just
a* soon as it can be done conveniently
and things will be put in good shape;
When this is done we may expect an
improvement in the Waldron Central
Russell Lemons and Milo Thomas
concluded that life on the farm was a
little to slow for tiit iu, ;.nt! mounted
their ponies and rede away. This
was about two weeks ago and their
whereabouts are yet unknown to their
anxious parents who are making every
effort to locate them. Russell Lem-
ons is 15 years old and is crippled in
the right hip, is light complected and
has light hair, while Milo Thomas is
some younger and has bright red hair
and red complection. Their parents
J. P. Lemons or S. W. Thomas will
pay a liberal reward for information
as to their location. They have
no idea where the boys went and
have sent out many postal cards to
officers all over Kansas and Oklahoma
in hopes of locating them.
—A. M. Mallory, general solicitor
for the Caldwell nurseries, was here
Tuesday making their fall delivery
—Claude McMullin returned from
his trip to Harper county, Okla., and
reports that he likes the looks of that
country pretty well. He was offered
a relinquishment on a quarter of
good land out there for $750, but did
not buy. Maybe he made a mistake.
—Cris Nelson left one day last week
for a trip to his native country, Den-
mark, to be gone two or three months.
The Journal will visit him each week
while he is away. Chris is a money
maker and has accumulated a fine
farm and a good bank account since
he came to this country.

Kansas City, Mo., Nov. 11th, 1907.
After Monday of last week cattle
receipts were held down to a point
slightly under the demand, and the
result was a recovery from Monday’s
low level on all kinds. Weighty fed
steers made only a slight gain, but
light steers and Westerns advanced
20 to 35 cents after Monday, and cows
and heifers gained 15 to 25 cents,
stockers and feeders remained about
steady all week, with a smaller volume
of trade as receipts of this class are
falling off, and calves advanced 25 to
50 cems. The only bad feature today
is an excessive supply at Chicago,
with prices reported 10 to 25 cents
lower there, otherwise the 11,000 head
received here today would be handled
at steady to strong prices. As it is,
heavy natives are weak to 10 lower,
top #6.10, lighter steers and westerns
and she stuff about steady, stockers
and feeders strong, calves steady.
Short fed steers sell at 05.00 to 06.00,
grass westerns 3.40 to 4.50. One string
of westerns sold at 3.73 first of last
week, and similar steers brought 4.15
before the end of the week. Cows
range from 2.25 to 3.75, a few at 4.00
and upwards, heifers 2*75 to 4.25, bulls
2.00 to 3.50. calves 3.50 to 6.25, stock-
ers 2.75 to 4.25, feeders 3 50 to 4.50.
A fairly good number of Colorado,
New Mexico and Panhandle stockers
are to be had at 3.00 to 3.57.
Hogs suffered a net decline of 70
cents last week, but the big break
had the effect of shutting off supplies,
and a re-action set in Thursday,
markets slightly higher each day since,
Including a rise of 5 to 10 cents today.
Top today is 5,30, bulk of sales 5.10 to
5.50. Ruu today is less than 5000 head
here, and is light at all points. Pack-
ers have been predicting a still further
decline, but it was noted that they
were free buyers when the price got
down to 5.00 or lower, showing more
activity than any time previously
