Surprise pound parties seem to be
fashionable Monday night of this
week a big crowd went out to R.v.
Leonard's residence; about threo mile
southwest of town to wake the folks
up and have a good time an4 thoy
succeeded splendidly. Rev. Leonard
and wife had started to town late in
tho evening for their mail but on the
road met county treasurer Putmau
and wife who said they were going out
to visit the Leonards Of course the
Rev. gentleman and wife went back
to entertain their visitors A short
while after dark while the hosts and
vititora were chatting cozily there
was a commotion outdoors caused by
the fluttering and sqaslling of chickens.
Coyotes had been bothering Mr. Leon-
ard's poultry so when he heard the
chickens squalling bo jumped for hie
gun aod rushed out of the door to
catch the coyote marauders. Mr.
Piftman; who knew that the trouble
among the chickens came Irotn the
fowls that had been brought by the
surprise party went outdoors with Mr.
Leonard to prevent any rash action.
But there waa no danger for as soon
aa Mr. Leonard got outdoors be could
hear other imuei than that made
by the chicken:) and although it was
qui to dark he could see the outline of
tbo testfis and vehicles which weri
ranged up to the fence. Some oi the
ladles werd dressed in white and of
cotlrse ha conlJ sen that they were peo-
ple. He tried to sneak the gun back
into the house and bMe it but tbe
crowd "caught on" aud guyed him
plenty over it.
The jolly crowd bad brought a
ampin of m my thing to eat( beside
cnickens which were turned Over to

derangement of brain caused by sun-
stroke. LeMcr had a pretty seVero at-
tack of sunstroki some weeks ago but
bowed few ill cnVots from it until a
few days ago. Tbo derangement oi
bis mind seems to be of a harmless
character but it was thought best to
send him to the asylum at Norman
for treatmont and John Savage atarted
with him last Friday for that place
We hope for his tpedy recovery.
Tbe pound patty giveu to Rev F
L. Logston last Wodnccday night waa

mation that there was anything utiut-
Ual going en. Tin party took com-
plete possession of tbe house and run
things to suit themselves. J'jacb one
of tbe visitors brought a pound or
more of something to cat which waa
highly appreciated by tbo recipients.
Tbe crowd had a jolly time for an
hour or two and theu dispersed to their
homes happy in the thought that they
had surprised the pastor.
