as cheap per gallon as those that
do. Yet it costs less to use than
the inferior kinds because seven

lanterns and pumpkin lamp gloves
whose grinning and grotesque
faces peeped out from every nook
In the dinning room apples
hung from strings to "bite as you
passed through." On the table
were placed old fashioned "pig-
aa .J 4 1
gins" cut irom pumpKins ana
filled with nuts and apples. ; Some
of the nuts contained written for-
tunes from kernals. A plate of
flour with ring concealed furn-
ished amusement for those who
tried their luck biting for same
Rob't Ironside Jr. being successful.
Fortunes were told by Miss
Byrd Ironside with a glass of wine
and water and concealed in the
corner bv a closed screen a "real
Gypsy" fortune teller told your
fortune free of charge. Hidden in
the same room was a key a penny
and a thimble with this injunc-
tion to the seekers: "Who finds
iLe key will travel far who finds
the penny riches will find and
who finds the thimble will be an
old maid." Itosie Mellette found
the thimble and Goode McGlasson
fortunately found the penny and
kev. After fortunes were told and
the search completed all the girls
one by one jumped over a lighted
candle but fortunately not one of
them extinguished it. A portion
of the girls and boys then indulged
in a cake walk with Mabel Bagby
as "judge" who awarded the
prizes a dainty candlestick to
Eva Mellette and a pretty match
box to Harden Trott
Mrs. Blakeney and Miss Goody-
koontz were assisted by Mrs. J. C.
Anderson and Miss Byrd lion-

consisted of salad and wafers can

The evening was one long to be
remembered by those who were

prescription: "Take one before

little candy pellets which were to

A Delightful Social Affair Given
One of the most unique and beautl
ful eutertalnmcnls of tho seuson was
given at the pretty home of Mrs. A
W. Foreman last evening. The spaci-
ous rooms resplendunt with snow-
white curtains and colored lights
bidden In lanterns made of ghostly
faces presented a scene not soon to
be forgotten. At ten o'clock a row of
phantom-like figures was formed in
line and each gentleman selected a
partner from these after which the
white masks were removed and a
hearty laugh indulged in. The guests
were then shown Into the dining room
which was illuminated with colored
lights and an old-fashioned candy
pulling took place. The time passed
too quickly. The charming hostess
who is noted for her hospitality has
given many social affairs remarkable
for their novelty but her friends all
agree that this was the most success-
ful party ever given. Not until a late
hour did the guests depart for their
homes each one expressing themselves
that they had never spent a more
pleasant evening. Those present
were: Mrs. Sample Miss Cora Sample
Miss Davles Mrs. Bradly MissZunolt
Miss Nettie Duncan Miss Myrtle
Crockett Miss Barton Miss VanPelt;
F. 0. Harris Dr. Bagby Mr Adams
Fred Young Boyd Gillispie Prof.
Dugger and Al Trogden.
He Pooled the Surgeons.
Ail doctors told Renick Hamilton
of West Jefferson 0. after suffering
18 months from rectal fistula he
would die unless a costly operation
was performed; but he cured himself
with five boxes of Bucklen's arnica
salve the surest pile cure on earth
and the best salve in the world. 25c

Foreman's drug stores.

Mrs. M. J. Moore Sold Rouudlap and
Square;Cotton With That Result.
Mrs. M. J. Moore a business woman
of Yalobusha County Miss. who con-
ducts two plantations on which she
makes 100 bales of cotton a year Au-
gust 15 last wrote to the Oakland Gin
Co.; "During the past season I had
the cotton raised on my place near
town ginned at your gin and put up
on your roundlap bale press but all
the cotton raised on my Yocona plan-
tation was put up in the old fash-
ioned square bales. Believing that the
price of cotton would be much higher
in the spring after the shortness of
thecroDwas fully realized than it
was bringing at the time it was
ginned I concluded to hold and did
not sell out until late In the spring.
"1 put my roundlap and square cot-
ton on the market at the same time
the grades of each being the same and
sold both lots to Messrs. Harvey
Black & Co. their bids on b Jth kinds
being the highest made. I gut 8
cents for my square cotton and M
cents for my roundlap cotton.
"I watched the cotton markets
btre very cartfully during the ( i-t

ways brought a premium of from 1

M X & T Reduces Rate in Indian
Ever since the construction of the
M. K. & T. T.y. through the Indian
Territory its local passenger rate be-
tween stations in the Indian Terri-
tory has been on tho basis of rive cents
a mile. The customary rate of pas
sengcr fares on railroads except in
sparsely settled country is three
cents a mile. The population of the
Indian Territory has grown rapidly
there has been a large increase of
passenger traffic on this account and
the Katy officials recogniiing the
wants of the people and the Justice of
so doing have voluntarily arranged
to reduce the local passenger rate to-
a basis of three cents a mile. This
raduciion will take effect about Nov-
ember first. There will be great re-
joicing among the residents along
the line of the M. K.&T.
