Heater Market Attracts Wheat From
O. A. Mlnton a farmer who resides
ten miles northwest of Forgan
marketed wheat In Heaver the past
week receiving $1.82 per bushel tho
market quotation hero that day.
which was seven cents higher than
was offered by the Forgan dealers.
Although Forgan dealers have the
advantage ot a shorter freight haul
It appears that they are not able to
come up to the Beaver market prices
and the farmers who want and are
entitled to tho highest dollar for
thel rproduco are passing up that
burg and marketing In Beaver where
highest market prices are being paid
all the time regardless of tho great-
er freight haul and h'lgher freight
rate which must bonnet.

The high school students enjoyed
a' pleasant evening at tho Jilglt school
building Tuesday at which time they
indulged In Hallowe'en fun. In addi-
tion to the games and other amuse
ments they roasted wienies nnd t
toasted marshmallows until a lute 1
hour. After tho party was over and I
the "school ma'ams" had returned
to their homes the youngsters got to-
gether and had some real fun as the
appearance of the business district
attested tho next morning however
the young people confined Iholr
pranks within tho bounds of reason
and their frolic was taken In good
nature by most of their victims. Their
chief stunt was to smear up the win
dows with soap. Wo feel like rising
up and culling them blessed for that
prank for It will no doubt cause some
windows which have relt the need
of soap 'nnd water for months to gel
a good cleaning. Nobody objects
to innocent fun at this time and we
want td congratulate the boys and
girls on confining themselves to fun
and not resorting to destruction of
property as has sometimes been
dono tho past.

COOLER. For instance wo have a
u I co little snow on tho ground now
amounting to something like four
inches. Last winter It reached 27
degrees below here and at Sundance
In the Black Hills whero I spent
most of last winter It was dovn to
30 degrees below."

TWO CARS IX TUN DITCH
Last week seemed to be "automO'
blip accident day" In this section
Two cars wero reported to us as
meeting with mishaps which while
resulting In disaster to the cars were
not serious so far as the occupants
One of the victims was B. A. Pugh
of hear Ilalko who was driving home
from near Reaver Saturday night In
his Studebaker when he ran on a
bridge air the new state road south
of R. C. Faln's farm badly damaging
his car but escaping uninjured him-
boU. Thero was no ono clso in the
car at tho time. It will be remem-
bered that Mr. Pugh experienced a
big loss several months ago In a
similar accident when his son Tad
was driving their new Studebaker at
a good rate of speed near their
home and It skidded and turned tur-
tle the car being so badly damaged
that Mr. Pugh turned It In to the
company and took a now car tho
one which was In the smash-up Sat-
urday night. This car while con-
siderably damaged can bo repaired.
Joe Foster auto liveryman here
was tho other smash-up victim Mr.
Foster and W. W. Murray were re-
turning from Forgan Friday night.
George Rrown another liveryman
was returning at the samo time. Af-
ter crossing tho brldgo thoy speeded
up and raced toward town. Mr. Fos-
ter's lights on his car wero not very
bright and he missed tho railroad
crossing striking tho railroad track
full forco and turning a somersault
car and all. Tho car was wrecked
but tho occupants escaped with hard
ly a scratch. It was a narrow escape
