have seen a lot of ''boomers' in
my time, but I have never seen a
boomer chicken until now/' said
Mike Crowley, vet ran Rock Is-
land engineer, as he alighted
from the cab of his engine in the
Chickasha yards. "Look under
there and you'll see the only
'boomer' chicken in the world. '
continued Crowley. ''That hird
has been riding with me all' the
way from Enid." Crowley point-
ed under the engine.
There in a crevice of the trucks
huddled a small battle scarred
rooster, of uncertain breed, be-
smeared with coal dust, but other-
wise apparently in perfect condi-
tion. Engineer Crowley explain-
ed that as lie was oiling his engine
in Enid on the southern trip 'lie
noticed the chicken perched 011 a
rod underneath the locomotive.
He did not molest the "hobo,"
but climbed down at El .Ken0 and
found the rooster secure as when
he had pulled out of Enid.
At Chickasha, the end of his
rnn, it took the concerted efforts
of three negroes, employes at the
roundhouse, to catch the "bum"
after the rooster had .been routed
from his perch beneath the en-
gine. "I'm going to take him
home and give him to my kid,"
said Crowley, "and T'm going to
name him 'Boomer.' "

A large crowd of spectators gath-
ered at the Brady Jewelry Store
Saturday evening to witness the
counting of the lenses which have
been in the Brady window during
the fair and for which Mr. Brady
offered prizes to those guessing liie

cis hilluian and Nellie Sauttee
began counting the lenses at eight
o'clock and the large crowd waited
patiently to hear the. result The
judges completed tneir work in

ey was divided between tfcem, each
receiving $2.50. The onditions of

Mary Clark, ul 902 S. Barker, who
is but 16 years of age registered a
guess oi 1215 lenses the exact num.

Unlike any other show ever pre-
sented. is Jones Bros ' and Wil-
son's Trained Wild Animal Show,
embracing the idea used by llag-
enback's Wonder /£oo this winter
in the Olympic at London, with
such wonderful success, combined
with a number of high class Euro-
pean Aerial, Acrobatic and Equ-
ine performances, staged under
canvas on t'he style of an Ameri-
can circus. Two rings, an elevat
ed stage, and a large steel arena
will be used for the presentation
of these performances.
The performances will run to
trained animal acts, both wild and
domestic, including Peter Taylor
and his $50,000 grrup of perform-
ing- lions. This is said to be th
largest and most sensational act
of its kind before the public to-

No one needs feel sorry for the
poor little y-oung ones who grew
up never knowing what a clown
was like. Now adays the success-
ful Jones Bros.' and Wilson's fun
producer adapts his clowning
quite as much to the grownups as
to the youngsteis. The one, the
only, the inimitable clown that
used to be. a character of such im-
portance that his name was hear-
alded in lithographic splender, is
gone, hut a horde of just as clever
and more vigilant eut-iips have re-
placed him.
The funny clown of today must
'be a producer, an originator,

lesque of events occupying public

The printing of the state Imllots
for the fall election was let this
morning by the Hoard of Affairs to
the Co-operative Printing Co., of
Guthrie for the sum of $1,571.41. The
Democrat and American of this city
submitted a joint bid. The bids
were as follows ;

Shawnee Ilerald
Muskogee Phoenix

The specifications called for 455,-
000. ballots, 70,000 sample ballots
5,500 Tally Sheets, and requires a
bond of $10 000.00 f"r the faithful
performance. It was the concensus
of opinion of the bidders present
that the Co.Operative Co., the low
bidders, could not possibly print the
ballots at the figure as the stock
alone for the complete job costs ill
the neigliborhod oi $1,000.

we were not able to publish the
results of the contest today, but
