In the Missouri papers recently,
was published the picture of Robert
A. Wild of Ray county, Mo., who is
said to be the oldest farm bureau
member in the United States and who
celebrated his 99th birthday the 22nd
of last month. He is an uncle of
George Thompson of near Elk City.
Mr. Wild has been a resident of
Ray county for 90 years. He was
born March 22, 1822, in Clay county,
Ky., and in the year 1830 came to
At the death of his father during
the Civil War, Robert A. Wild took
charge of the homestead and in a
short time became one of the thrifty
and prosperous farmers of Ray
county, and from time to time added
adjoining tracts of land to the home
place. Mr. Wild had devoted all his
time, with the exception of two years
in business in Millville, to fanning.
Before he retired from active
farming, Mr, Wild took considerable
interest in the public affairs of the
county. He is the only living person
in the county who was present at the
organization of the Ray County Sav-
ings Bank in 1869. He is rather
strong in body and mind today and
takes an active interest in life His
strong personality, his high character
nnd rugged honesty have won for
him a place in the hearts of all who
know him.

There will be a few less bag worms
in our town through the efforts of
the Chamber of Commerce, who gave
premiums to the boys who would
secure the most bag worms. The bag
worms have been on exhibition at
the VanAuken store and have been
of great interest to all. Joe Van-
A.uken thinks there will be a few
billion less of bag worms this season.
The first prize was awarded to
Horace King who won $5.00 for col-
lecting the most bag worms, having
seven pounds and four ounces.
George Conway won second, $3.00,
he securing two pounds and ten
ounces. Harlow Ward won $2.00 by
securing two pounds and four
ounces. Altogether twentythree
pounds were secured.

Considerable excitement was caus-
ed at Sayre Monday, when a .couple
of young men went there and told
the officers they had found a man
who was dead, and they thought there
was some foul play. The officers
and a doctor went down immediately
and to their joy found it only a
dummy. Some boys had placed the
dummy in a cave by the side of a
hill with his feet sticking out, and
intended to April Fool some of their
friends. It was found by other boys
who really thought it was a man
The boys playing the joke failed to
see them before they left for the
county seat. It was good news to
all when it was found it was nothing
Serious. With so much crime in the
world it seems that anything can be
expected these days.
Several spoke of the flood that
came to Foss in the early day In
writing to the old home paper in
Missouri on June 3rd, 1902, Mrs.
Alice Blackburn said: “Since my last
letter we have had so much rain that
never knew just when to write,
for on three different times the rains
have been so heavy that it washed
away the railroad track for several
miles and the Washita river has been
up so high that the bridge is unsafe,
our mail was detained. We have
now been without mail a week. In
me parts it washed away nearly all
the crops and hail injured a great
deal. There has been much damage
the towns on the creeks and on
the Washita v/here they experienced
regular water spouts. They had a
regular flood in the town of Foss.
Houses were floating around and six
lives were lost while there were many
miraculous escapes. Many people
here were down-hearted, for they
knew it was going to rain so much
nothing could grow, but it seemed to
me I could never say “enough” aftet
the drouth of last summer.”
I give you a land of sun and flowers
and summer the whole year long;
I give you a land where the golden
hours roll by
To the Mocking bird’s song;
Where the cotton blooms
’Neath the southern sun;
Where the vintage hangs,
Thick on the vine;
A land whose story is just begun,
This wonderful land of mine.
Oklahoma! Oklahoma!
Fairest daughter of the West.
Oklahoma! Oklahoma!
'Tis the land I love the best.
We have often sung her praises,
But we have not told the half;
So, I give you “Oklahoma;”
’Tis a toast we all can quaff.
A big crowd was present despite
the mud and water. Rev. Jno. Tracy
the leader of the Community Sing-
ing was well pleased Tuesday night
when all sang the State song "Ok-
lahoma,” in such a wonderful
manner. He drilled and drilled the
singers on the song, which he says
every one should khow.
Mrs. Gibbs had charge of the
popular songs and she was ably
assisted by Eugene Grubitz, W. O.
Gibbs, Wm. Hewlett and Rev. Tracy,
who led out in the darky songs.
As all sang “John Brown’s body
lies mouldering in the grave” they
left off one word on each line, so at
the last they were singing “John,
John, John.”
Once they were singing by sec-
tions, the adults in one section, High
School students in another, and so
on. When one section finished,
Rev, Hamilton was asked how it
sounded and he answered, “Too low
and too slow,” then when Walter
Thomas was asked how the seciion
sang in which Rev. Hamilton was
singing, Thomas hollared out, “Too
loud and too strong.”
It was a most profitable and
pleasant hour. So many of the
students were present, also men and
women who are looking forward to
Tuesday night as one of the most
enjoyable evenings of the week.
They sang “Blue Bells of Scot-
land” for closing song.
O. A. Burwell left last Fridy for
Greeup, 111., to visit his sisters and
brothers whom he has not seen for
fifteen years. While there he ex-
pected tQ attend the funeral of- a
soldier nephew who died in France
during the war and his body was just
being shipped home. He was killed
just three days before the armistice
was signed.
At a meeting of the Board of
Officers of the First Christian church
held Wednesday night, a movement
was set on foot looking to the build-
ing of an addition to their church
house. This church reports fine pro-
gress and must have additional room.

Recently Pete Thurmond was at
the depot and when he started to
take the train we asked him where
he was going. On his trying to evade
the squestion, we then spoke up and
said “this is not the right way to
Sentinel” and immediately he an-
swered, “Well, I’d like to know how
you would go any other way on the
train?” We knew then where he
was going—can you guess?
The Foss Enterprise came out
looking as handsome as could be last
week, because of having a new
dress of type. The new type which
Editor Nation received last week
takes the place he says of type which
has been in service ever since he has
had charge of the paper and—he
adds he knows not how much longer.
Mr. Nation goes on to say:
“Buying several hundred pounds of
type does not mean much to the
reader, perhaps, but it is considered
quite an event in a newspaper office
especially at the present price. A
few years ago this type could have
been bought for 41 cents a pound,
but the prico of it now is $1.40 a
pound. This is one of a number of
reasons why there will be no im-
mediate reduction in the subscrip-
tion price of newspapers. Practically
everything used in newspaper mak-
ing has increased in price several
hundred percent, while the price of
newspapers, in most instances, has
increased only 50 cents a year.”
