SOME FIGURES FROM THE RECORDS
WHICHvDISCLOSE SOME RATHER
An Expensive Luxury Is Our Sheriff.
Why are taxes in Woods county
ao high? Why is it that the per
cent of tuxation remains practically
the same from year to year in face
of the fact that the property valua-
tion has increased so rapidly ? Why
are landholders held up for over
four per cent of theassessed valua-
tiouof their farms in additiou to
their property tax when practically
the same rate of taxation furnished
money enough to rqn the county
government when land was not tax-
These are pertinent questions
Which the voters of Woods county
are asking and they are entitled to
a fair answer.
A perusal of the county records
will disclose some startling facts
that will help the voter to decide
these questions for himself.
* First take a look at the records
relative to the office of sheriff. The
reports of the Sheriff, on file in the
office of the County Clerk show that
while sheriff D. C. Oates has receiv-
ed tbcf followingamounts.
1st quarter . . . $1691.11
2nd quarter . . , $2272.08
3rd quarter . . $1925.91
4th quarter . \ . $2322.62
Total . . $821L72
1st quarter . . $3481.07
2nd quarter . . . $2740.28
3rd quarter , . $3120.65
4th quarter . . . $2659.30
Total . . $12001.30
1st quarter . . $2129.49
2ud qnarter . . . $2791.10
Total i year . $4920.59
Total 31 years . $33,854.53
Farmers, spidy these figures care-
fully and ask yourselves if you care
to again entrust the office of sheriff
to one who has thus enriched him-
self at the expense of the taxpayers.
The moral is plain. Vote for
Hadwiger for Sheriff.
Next week we will give some fig-
ures in regard to the Register of
Deeds office as conducted by J. B.
Doolin. that are even more startling
than the above.
Guthrie, O. T., Sept. 10.—Secre-
tary Thoburn, of the board of agri-
culture, estimates the broomcorn at
one-third of a ton per acre. This
would place the output at more than
three time the amount produced in
1902, and about four times as much
as last year. About 300,000 acres
were planted in broom corn last
spring, and at the estimate given
the present crop will yield about
35,000 tons. Present indications
are that the product will bring about
$55 a ton. This means that the
broom corn growers will realize in
the aggregate $1,925,000.
fn 1902 the total yield in the ter-
ritory was only 11,260 tons, and last
year’s about 9,700 tons. In 1902the
crops brought an average of *75 a
ton, making the total value of the
crops a’ little more than $800,000.
Since that time, however, there has
been a gradual depreciation in the
market. However, many farmers
will hold their broom corn until
late in the hope that the old price
will be restored.
At $55 a too there will be no great
disappointment. The cidtivatiou-of
the staple at that figure is very pro-
fitable, and the indications now are
that hext year the crop will be at
least 50 per cent larger than it was

better showing than the old varieties
which had been well tested and are
undoubtedly varieties which can be
giown in Oklahoma with success.
In fact the new varieties gave much
lower yield than the new varieties
included in the old list. The yields
this year in the case of all varieties
are much lower than those reported
last season The dry weather dur-
ing the winter and spring months
was the cause of this reduction.^The
early wheats sufferd to a greater ex-
tent than the late wheats. It was
also a noticuble fact that the hard
wheats appeared to withstand the
dry weather and return better yields
per acre than the soft wheats. A J *■ Arthur Hess. Cashier of till- above named

A Melon Sugar Experiment.
An experiment is being tried this
year that il found to be successful
will make, the lund around Byron
worth $100 an acre. It is to make
sii^rar out ofwatormolonsi. In case
it is found thut sugar can bo made
from the core of melons, rfyron would
soon become a center of the sugar
industry. Melons will grow in that
vicinity with but little rain and the
cost of tending and marketing them
is but a trifle und if sold for three
eonts apiece, would not the farmers
more money than au average wheat
