TWENTY-NINTH YEAR—NUMBER 6
GERMANS MEET :
LONDON, Oct. 21.—Simultaneous,
plunging attacks by the Germans
along the entire front in the eastern
theatre of war were repulsed Tues-
day with disastrous results to the
invaders, according to an official
French report issued Tuesday night.
Evidently these sudden assaults
formed a preconcerted plan on the
pan of the Germans to attempt to
locate a vulnerable point in the al-
lied armies where an entering
wedge might be started in a last
desperate attempt of the Teutons
to penetrate the long line of de-
fense which keeps them from over-
That the effort was more than
useless is indicated in the French re-
port. It stated that in the extreme
north the Belgian army held re-
markably well; at Labasste a par-
ticularly violent attack was hurled
back; to the north Of Arras, at Ma-
metz, between Peronne and Albert,
the invaders met disaster; at Vau-
quiz, to the east of the Argonne, and
finally on the heights of the Meuse
and in the region of Champion, the
allies scored decisive victories.
Fighting of the most desperate
character is in progress inf West
Flanders and Northwestern France.
The Belgian army, supported by the
allies, is holding stubbornly to the
line of the River Yser and thus far
has successfully halted determined
efforts of the Germans to advance
along the coast.
This is announced in the French
official communication issued yester-
day and is admitted in the report
of German headquarters which says
fighting has been going on since
Sunday in the vicinity of Nieuport,
which stands at the crossing of the
river near the sea.
A little further to the south the
allies are attempting to advance to-
ward Lille for the relief of that city, i
which has been in German hands
for some time. They also are push-
ing on to the north and south of
Arras. Their efforts Monday to ad-
vance on Lille, where the Germans
hold strong positions, were repulsed,
according to the German report.
To the southward at the bend of
the line, the Germans continue to
make furious, but futile, attempts
to break the French line. Aiong the
Meuse, in the east, according to the
French account, the Germans have
failed to repulse the French troops
who debouched along the territory
in which is situated the camp Des
Romaines, now in the hands of the
Germans in an attempt to cut out
that portion of the German army,
which is thrust towards St. Mihiel.
Generally speaking, the French
claim to have made some detailed
progress at various points along the
front. Paris reports that the allies
have destroyed 15 German machine
guns, 2 of which were armored, near
La Bassee and a battery of German
heavy artillery in the environs of
OVER TIGERS, 130
NORMAN, Okla., Oct. 19.—In the
first big game of the season in wliich
the two teams have been involved,
the Oklahoma Sooners triumphed
over the Missouri Tigers on Boyd
field Saturday afternoon, 13 to 0.
It was an ideal day and 4,000 peo-
ple witnessed the game.
Bennie Owens' Sooners outclassed
their northern rivals in every de-
partment of the game with the ex-
ception of Shepard's punting, which
\vas one of the features of the game.
Oklahoma made her gains by varied
combinations of end runs, tackle,
shifts and the forward pass. Mis-
souri played straight football prac-
tically throughout the contest.
The F armer's Capital
The farmer Is a business man in the true sense of the word jusl
as much as the groceryman, the hardware man or the butcher. There-
fore, in formulating plans for a successful career on a farm, it is well
to consider carefully all branches of farming, studying the relation-
ship of one branch with another, in order that the most profit may be
In the opinion of a preat many successful farmers there is no
better way to attain success than through the breeding of standard
grades of live stock. Quality should be the keynote and not quantity.
It requires the same number of ears of corn ty feed a scrub pony that
it does to properly care for a welt-bred animal. Kight now there is u
market in Tahlequah for a good grade of horse stock, owing lo the
demands for cavalry horses brought about by the foreign wars. Horses
that are saleable at this time are those weighinfe from 1,000 to 1,25(1
pounds and from 15 to 15 3-4 hands high. Horses that are in demand
are those of solid colors. While the market may not be as attractive
as it has been In the past, it might be wise to dispose of the surplus,
thereby cutting down to the minimum the expense of wintering. 'I he
probabilities are that feed will be a big problem with many farmers
during the winter months.

(From V- v.<5day's Daily Arrow)
Late last night burglary was at-
tempted at the M. G. Raymond home
on Academy Heights. Mr. Raymond
is at Morris, where he is in charge
of a lumber yard, and the family
were alone except the presence of
a couplo of young lady boardrs.
Some person or persons stepped up-
on the porch and made an effort to
open the door, which act startled
the inmates, who phoned for the
police, who shortly responded, but
the marauders had made their get-
away before the officers arrived.

message from its Kiel correspondent
saying that the 157 prisoners of war,
men attached to the British ambu-

German Danish frontier for ex-
change with an equal number of Ger-
man ambulance corps men held by
the British. The Englishmen will
travel home by way of Copenhagen.
NDOItSES PLAN TO
CELEBRATE NOVEMBER 10
JOE MILLER EOR
THIRD NUMBER OF NORMAL
LYCEUM COURSE OCTOBER 27
Joe R. Miller, if we mistake not,
moved to Tahlequah, I. T., from
Washington County, Ark., when a
mere lad, and being ready to choose
for himself a course in life, his
daily vocations now go to show the
idea Joe had of one's privilege in
making a choice.
Most every resident of Tahlequah
of that tlma, and most all country
folk who traded at that point, re-
member the familiar and accommo-
dating person, Joe Miller, as he
studiously and in a dexterious man-
ner waited upon the customers or
drove the del-'very wagon for the
Richards Grocery Company, owned
by whom we all now tenderly call
"Uncle Buck" Richards. Step by
step, Joe climbed the ladder of suc-
cess in his line of work until by
his honest effort and business abil
ity, he eventually secured a bus-
iness of his own, which he success-
fully continued until called by the
citizens of this county to lend his
ability in managing for them
branch of their government.
Joe R. Miller has made good in
every way that can be demanded of
any person in executing the duties
of Register of Deeds. Trouble of
various nature has been spoken of by
various citizens relative to the man-
agement of certain offices, but we
dare say that not a single word has
been uttered regarding the manner
of management of the office of Reg-
ister of Deeds, so skilfully conducted
in an absolute business-like manner
by this self-made man who has,
since his boyhood, exercised that
golden teaching of loving parents,
that of honesty, truthfulness and in-
tegrity. These things we absolute-
ly know of Joe R. Miller by reason
of a lifelong acquaintance and as-
Though differing in politics, it
would be a proud day for us to see
Joe R. Miller inducted into the of-
fice to which he now aspires, that of
County Clerk, which is to be con-
solidated with the office of Register
of Deeds.—Hulbert Times.

GINS TO CLOSE
TEXARKANA. Ark, Oct. J7.—
Persons here from Prescott, forty
miles north of here, on the Iron
Mountain road state that every cot-
ton gin in that county and section
has been closed down as result of
notices posted on their doors by
night riders and white cappers. The
warnings are thought to be due to
the fact that some farmers recently
sold their cotton at 6 cents a pound.
The Socialist party is said to be
stronger in that section, by far than
anywhere else in South Arkansas.
MCALESTER, Oct. 17.—Burglars
last Thursday night broke into the
postoffice at Kiowa, loaded the safe
into a wagon and had started away
with it, when the wagon broke down.
Going to a blacksmith shop for re-
pairs a night watchman saw them
and began shooting at them. They
left the wagon and ran. They have
not been captured. The burglars
did not get the safe open.

riage licenses Issued by the clerk
