A number of towns in Oklaho-
ma are claiming to be the borne
of Jess Willard, and if he evei
lived in one third of them he sum-
has been going Home. In lookihg
over our City Directories we do
not find the name of Jess Willard
so we ute sure he never lived in
Colony, lie never freighted to or
from Colony and we do not claim
to be holding his trunk for a
board hill as a Mr. Jenks of
Sayre is doing.. No, Colony is
not the home of Jess Willard, but
it IS the home of a number of
men and women who are doing
more for humanity than any

Don’t plant Half and Half
It is now almost time to plant
cotton, and every farmer should
lie careful us to the kind he
plants. Do not plant the half
and half cotton as the buyers will
not buy it, and if they find that
a gin is ginning it they refuse to
fiuy their output at all. The
government is sending out bulle-
tins urging farmers not to plant
half and half cotton. Europe is
threatening to stop buying any
American cotton unless tiny
are assured that we ur« not rais-
ing half and half cotton.

The S. W. I. M. was very line
this year. The literary and ath-

Some thoughtless boys have
been stretching wire across the
walk east from the Drug Store to
the Bank so as to trip people.
Boys may think this fun, but if
some one should get hurt by fall-
ing over the wires, it would not
be ut all funny. Better play
pranks that are not so liable to
hurt some one, boys.
Some time Sunday boys cut a
number of young trees in front of
