MOUNTAIN PARK, OKLAHOMA, FRIDAY JULY 19,1907
TO THE FARMER5 UNION
President SUllard Urges the Lo-
cals to Hbld Recruiting
Dear Brothers: We will
have our annual state meeting at
Shawnee, beginning August 20.
I desire a good showing, both in
numerical and financial strength.
I urge you to make an earnest
effort to have every member of
your local union, in good stand-
ing throughout the county, see
to it that dues are paid, as we
should send a large delegation

some states and, remember, we
are only in our infancy.
If the farmers’ organizations
will demand the same rights
that other organizations have,
that is, of fixing the prices on
what they have to sell, it will
have accomplished what its
founders intended for it. It is a
mistaken idea, that farmers
ought to go into all kinds of
business. We have more busi-
ness now than we can attend to,
that is, producing and selling.
We have been giving very little
attention to anything but pro-
ducing and selling. Now, if by

ucts, it is strange to see how
many farmers will hesitate to be-
come working members. Our
cotton crop of 1898 sold for 332
million dollars; that of 1906 for
75 million dollars.
The farmers are the greatest
producers of wealth, still, with-
out organization, they are the
most dependent class of' people
on earth. We will have many
obstacles to surmount, but if we
stay with our organization and
keep on the main line the victory

for the union. The cotton spin-

dent Barrett a hearing at the

ladies displayed remarkable skill
in the contests. In the forenoon
the benedicts defeated their bach-
elor brothers in an exciting game
of base ball by a score of 5 to 3.
In the afternoon a picked team
of Elks beat a Mt. Park nine by
a score of 9 to 8.
Of course there was plenty of
refreshments—both solid and
liquid—and the B. P. 0. E. had

Horse Show August 6.
E. M. Bentley is circulating a
subscription paper to raise funds
for the holding of a horse and
colt show to be held at Glenwood
park August 6, the anniversary
of the town lot sale.
The horse show last year was
a great success and if one is held
this year it will bring out a fine
showing of horses and colts, and
will be of great benefit to the
stockraisers of this vicinity.
