SLAUGHTER & SONS
Medford, Oklahoma, Jan. 9.—
The commissioners in session last
week transacted quite a budget of
business of general interest not the
least of which was the appointment
of Geo. Walker as superintendent
of the poor farm for the coming
year. There were two bids lower
than Walker’s but the fact that he
I had charge of the farm for the past
year and proven his worth out-
weighed the slight difference in the
bids and gave him the appointment.
Seventeen applicants were after the
job and their bids were as follows:
B. M. Merritt, salary $450 no help.
Geo. D. Walker, salary $550 help
of 50.00 per month, and one under-1
sheriff and two field deputies, also;
one lodge deputy for each A. H. T. |

iff Lamisun was authorized to ap-
point one office deputy at a salary
at public auction Saturday, Feb-
roary 10. at 1:00 oclock. This act-
ion is taken by the board for sever-
al reasons chief among which is the
fact that the buildings as they now
stand are absolutely worthless to
the count}- and are each year be-
coming more so. Then too Pond
Creek will begin the erection of a
new school house at once and will
probably desire to build upon the
site now occupied by these build-
ings. The court house square is
the property of the United States.
