From the Medford Patriot.
Several have remarked the high
prices of produce recently. We un-
derstand hens are quoted in the Med-
ford market at 94 cents per pound and
that there is a prospect of a still bet-
ter price. Eggs are also bringing a
good price, so the owner of the hen
hardly knows what to do with her-
I From the Anthony Republican.
George Ghere says there are lots of
I genuine green bugs in his wheat near
I Danville, aud millions of the parasitic
bee also. Wheat is tine and he fears
no damage from the green bug.
H. B. Waldron bought seven thous-
I and acres of Clark county lands ac-
cording to the recent Hillsdale,
Michigan, paper, when he was in this
country a few weeks ago. He will sell
same in small farms on long time to
Michigan farmers who want to move
I to a good country.
Leslie Bozwell had a misfortune
I Sunday morning; he was trying to
catch a loose horse when his mount
slipped aud fell and his leg was
broken just below the knee. Now
Kilborn & Law will miss the handy
“Butch” for some time. The boy
possessed a great deal of grit, but
when Dr. Updergraph set the bones
his eyes lost their youthful look and
he could not help groaning now and

A large eagle that the Conway boys
I had captured a month ago by break-
ing one of its wings escaped last week
and was at large for several days.
Saturday the eagle was seen at the
side of the road north east of town by
Dr. Watkins and Albert Gray who
were passing In a buggy. Albert Gray
got out and tried to recapture the
bird, but it put up such a strong fight
the boy was forced to kill it with a
club. Its broken wing wasnotsuffi-
flciently healed for it to fly very good.
The bird is one of the largest seen
here for many years, measuring seven
feet and an inch from tip to tip. Dr.
Watkins will have the bird mounted

Good Work and
From the Pond Creek Vidette.
The news comes up from Guthrie
this afternoon that Wm. Vetter, of
Pond Creek, has been appointed cus-
todian of the State Normal school
buildings at Alva.
J. C. Me Clelland went down to Ok-
lahoma City Monday morning to com
plete the arrangements for the remov-
al of his family to that city. Mr. Mc-
Clelland’s relations with the First
National Bank of this city terminated
the first of April and he is going to
make Oklahoma City his future home.
Mr. Strecker is now actively in charge
of the affairs of the bank, and while
Mr. McClelland will probably be
missed by the bank’s customers, Mr.
Strecker’s well known business ability
will appeal to the confidence of the
patrons of the institution, and It will
continue to be the strong banking
house that it always has been.
Commissioner James Oreudorff re
turned from a two or three months
visit in California Sunday evening,
just in time for the April meeting of
the board of county commissioners,
of which he Is the chairman. While
in California, his father happened to
an accident that came near resulting
fatally, but Mr. Oreudorff says that
when he left, the old gentleman was
fast recovering his health and strength
and would recover, Jim himself is
looking fat and healthy, as though
life in California agreed with him.
Ed Hite is going out to Aline next
Sunday taking with him his two sons,
George and Clarence, aged nine and
ten years respectively. The boys will
be turned over to the Hall Wagon
shows which start on the road for the
season shortly. These two little fel-
lows have shown great proficiency as
acrobats ever since they have been
big enough to wear trousers, giving
exhibitions frequently to crow ds of
their friends. Show people who have
seen them perform have predicted
great things in the acrobatic line for
them, and Mr. Hite has had many
good offers for their services, all of
which have been turned down former-
ly. They will play the summer season
with this show and then return home
and go to school in the fall.
Last week .T. W. Bird made his first
planting of catalpa trees on his farm
near town. The seed sown last spring
did not yield nearly so many plants
as he expected, yet he had quite a
large number of large trees to plant
this spring. He had twelve men at
work most of last week preparing the
ground and planting the young trees.
Thirty acres of ground was covered,
the trees being placed seven feet apart
in the rows, and between 27,000 and
30,000 trees were planted. Mr. Bird
thought last fall that he would have
at least 100,000 trees from the seed
sown, but owing to the lack of prepa-
ration of the soil not nearly all of
the seed sown germinated. The
plants, however, were very thrifty,
many of them having made a growth
of nearly two feet from the seed last
summer, and all of those that started
came through alive. Mr. Bird will
later sow more seed and eventually
get the entire quarter section planted
