Charlie Detwller whose form** home
was on his farm north of the Antioch
church but who at prtiaent is in
Guthrie Is reported very sick.
Mote Gray and party are now at
Jacksonville, Tla. They write back
that the mosquitos are more numer-
ous than In Oklahoma. They have'nt
started any oil operations yet.
Mrs. Wm. Cross who runs fhe Mul-
hall hotel had the misfortune to have
her pocketbook stolen from tihe front
room of the hotel building Monday by
a couple of tourists. It seems she left
it banding on a nail near the door
as she was getting ready to go to town
to buy gome supplies rind when she
went to get It the contents was miss-
ing. She had Geo. Buehele take her
to Guthrie where the parties had been
stopped by Tom Boggcss but was un-
able to get her money back as no one
saw thorn take it.
It fakes more than mud and wash-
outs to keep automobile owners at
home. At least It does In Oklahoma
Hundreds of automobiles with trunks
tents and other outdoor paraphernal-
ia strapped to sides and backs with
seats filled with apparently happy
people pass through Mulhall each
week now bound for tbe mountains
lakes and the wife's folks to spend
The Fourth in Mulhall
Mulhall came awful near being put
the same class of Okmulgee and
ime of those other eastern counties
■sterday. July Fourth, all because
>me kid exercised his North Amerl-
in privilege and shot a fire cracker
front of the postotflce. Now that
kid shouldn't have did It. If he want-
ed to celebrate the Glorious Fourth he
should have gone to the country to
the three mile limit to do his cele-
brating. Ab a consequence the post-
office was closed all day from nine In
the morning and no one allowed to
look in their boxes to see if there was
any more monthly bill' had come in.
A notice was put in tbe window of
She building stating why such drastic
action was necessary. It seems, from
the wording of said notice, that the
city officials were very derelict In
their duty In not suppressing an ap-
parent revolution as the city was be-
ing bombarded from all sides with an
occasional'' Big Bertha" tearing great
holes In the atmosphere. To tell the
truth, our police force was unable to
cope with t/be situation and hid in
cellars waiting for July 4, 1923 to pass
The action of our postmaster In
locking up the office and lobby was
timely and the move was a good one.
Right here we would like to rec-
ommend to our negligent city officials
that when July 4, 1924 comes around
that they send every American kid of
fire-cracker age to the county jail at
Guthrie and keep them there until the
following day. To our mind this 1s
| the only procedure to follow that will
guarantee a non-occurrance of yester-
day’s shameful disturbance.
Oklahoma has taken greater strides
In the elimination of Illiteracy in the
last twelve years than any other state
ii^ the union. There are fewer illiter-
ates In Oklahoma than In any other
southern state. This was the revela-
tion II. H. Wilson former state super-
intendent of public ’Instruction in his
address at the closing session Tues-
day of the two days Oklahoma Illiter-
acy conference held at Durant.
Frank A. A darns, a deputy sheriff
of Pittsburg county was arrested last
night on a charge of having in his
possession liquor with Intention of
disposing of it unlawfully.

everything, the ca9t is big the picture

We guarantee a pleasing entertain-
ment and the price Is almost nothing.

there need be no argument as we
have them here all the time. The

but it because we are getting Old.

Negro Shoots a White
Shooting craps proved to he a bad
game for Clarence Con-well, white man
living in the Meridian neighborhood
According to reports reaching the
county attorney’s office, Con well und
a negro named Solomon Moore, also
a farmer of the Meridian district, en
gaged in a game of dice when a dis-
pute arose over the stakes. In the
fight that followed Moore shot the
white man In the right wrist the bul-
let after shattering the hand passed
on through the body just below the
right breast. Moore wag rushed to
Guthrie hospital where tt is said he
passed away. Immediately after the
shooting Sheriff Boggess was notified
and was hot on the trail of the slayer
but so far has been unable to locate
him. This is the fourth tragedy that
has occurred In the Meridian die
in the past two years and corn 1
key was tlie cause of it all.
Sheriff lioggese has been brlr
in many stills from that district
as yet has bee nunable to get
all. During the past two weeks
and his deputies have captured six
big stills in different parts of Logan
County, and In most of the cases have
taken the operators at the same time.
Mr. Hoggese has a system of "watch-
ful waiting" that ge*e the men at the
same time he grabs the still. If he
UeepB up the way he Is doing he soon
will make a dry territory of- Logan
County. The people around Guthrie
that have a chance to see Mr. Boggess
and his deputies work think a whole
lot of him and Tom could about get
anything he wanted. At the present
time Logan county has a real honest
he-shcriff that would go abler the
devil if some one said "sic ’em."

and had the distinction of having liv-
ed in two states hut 1n the same

Was a Good Idea
Mulhall came pretty near having a
nice new pretty bridge put In over a
rough spot on one of her main thor-
oughfares but owing to conditions,
circumstances, temperament, lack of
co-operation with the projector and
the projectorees, etc. and etc., we are
sorry to inform our readers that the
ooveled and undeniably much-needed
improvement is for the present put on
cold storage in Mr. Stotts' new Ice
plant. Don’t know what we would
have done without that cold storage
room as it was too hot a subject for
any one of the interested parties to
COUNTY COMMISSIONERS IN
The Board of County Commission-
e,rs are In session at the court house
this week. This Is John Hopkins'
firstmeotlng with the board, having
tuning the oath of office .Monday. Ho
succeeded George Sloan of Cresce-jt.
Mr. Hopkins will make a good mem-
ber as lie is specially fitted for the
Job. The Board Is now composed of
Frank Rinehart chairman, Sylvester
Reid and John Hopkins.
And while we are speaking of
bridges, both ornamental aad useful,
why not some one get ahold of John
Hopkins and tell him that that old
structure over Hhe Skeleton might
use some of that $100,000 (If voted) to
make it safe. The way that old bridge
shimmies when a Ford with more than
bwo people In It, goes over It, It Is
aiwful. If the thing was within the
corporate limits of any town the
town marshall would have pinched it
decades ago for its shameful shim-
HOPKINS FOR THE BOND8.
"The citizens of north ix>gan Coun-
ty will vole for the $100,000 bridge
bond issue," said John Hopkins, com-
missioner elect from this end of the
county. "We must have good bridges
and the money must come from some
source and I feel that the only course
open just now In to vote 'bonds and
pay them 1n twenty-five years. Other-
wise we will have to create an emer-
gency and go into judgment to secure
the money. So I am quite certain the
voters realizing that they must foot
the bill one way or the other will vote
for the Wands.”
John O’Neil was in tow n from Mar-
shall Monday evening to meet his
daughter, Marie who came from Ponca

COUNTY COURT WILL BEGIN
Judge A. H. Boles has set his July
Docket for the 23d of this month and
-;aye he will dispense of all criminal
cases at this term of court. There
are 18 criminal cases to be tried
practically all of them on charges of
violating the state prohibition laws.
L number of civil cases will also he
in for trial by the court.
A big delegation of Mulhall people
mustered up courage and crossed the
pontoon Into Guthrie the Fourth and
took in the celebration. Mulhall ball
tea mplayed the iNavina team and of
course Mulhall beat them. They say
that a Mulhall lady was selected as
one of the judges of the floats in the
parade, but so far we have not learned
who she was was. Of these floats
Ijarson Sisters took first, the J. C.
Penney Dry floods Co., sectmd, and
Brakey's Style Shop .third prize. One
of the floats caught fire after the pa-
rade but no one Injured. The fire-
works at night drew a big crowd and
of course every youngster of dance-
able age attended the street dance.
County Superintendent M-uxlow has
been notified by the President at the
A and M college that there will be
no competitive examination this year
for free scholarship to A and M next
year, as no state appropriation was
made by tbe last legislature to take
care of these scholarships.
