It will bo seen from the forcnoinc
tho appraised value a very good thing for the stuto. and yet it sold nt tho
low average price of $10.02 plus per acre a very good thing for tho pur-
chasers. Except the few unpleasantnesses reported from tho Apache vicinity
tho sales appear to have given general satisfaction and if tho land is worth
anything at all it is worth the averogo amount paid for it. Tho lessees
themselves were tho purchasers in lho mnin with very fow exceptions and
in ono or two instances tracts wore withheld from sale on account of town-
Bit matters. Tho corps of officials employed in tho palowero all that could
bo dosircd. Affablo courteous and accomodating and thoy were most cm-
photic in their expressions of pleasure at the courtesy thoy had been treated
with by both tho Court house officials end tho citizens at largo. Thoy do-
parted Sunday lor Lawton thoir next selling point with nothing bul praiso
nnd commendation for Anadarko.
Last Friday a man by tho namo of
Hull staying at the Elston Houso
went toDinkler's Drug storonnd stat-
ing that tho rats were very bad in
tho placo of his domicilium pur-
chased a box of what is said to bo
rough on tho aforesaid animals. He
took tho "Rough on Rat?" and re-
tired to tho Elston whore rs proceed
ed to take it again tbis timo intern
VMly. Having absorbed tho entire
contents of the box ho road the di-
rections and mado tha discovery that
those who took it must not dio in tho
houso. Ho accordingly wont out
doors and lay down prepared to shuffle
off his mortal coil. Doctor Wester-
moicr reached him however befoio he
had got quite over tho rat routu and
yanked him bak on this samo side
again Hero he remains for tho pre-
sont. Further pactlcularp later if
any. The biggest coward in all the
world is tho man who tries to run
away from life.
This Is Funny.
