GOT EIGHTH PLACE
The Mauyes County Agricultural

MISTAKE IN GRAHAM’S AD
In setting the ad of W. A. Gra-
ham & Co., last week, the type made
us say ‘‘One lot men’s shoes, $3.50 to
$4-00, now $4.95.” In another place,
the price of children’s school shoes
was $2.92, wIuhu/U should have been
12.95. And it wasn’t much of a week
for mistakes, either.
The Teacher’s Examination for
county certificates will be held in
Pryor, October 24, 25, and 26, begin-
ning at 7.46 a . m.

relatives have the heartfelt sympathy Seems like an unusually large num-
of ell in their loss. her of sales in this section this fall.
MISSED THEIR TRAIN
A bunch of Pryorifes had the plea
sure of sitting up all night at Mus-
kogee Thursday night as a result of
having missed connection with the
train on which they were to have re-
turned home on. Any one of the num-
ber could be easily spotted the next
day by their sleepy appearance.

ing public sales:

This makes eighteen sets of sale
The old hay ham east of the cotton
gin caught fire in some mysterious
manner Thursday night and burne<L
to the ground together with several
tons of baled hay. The barn west
across the track caughtt fire at one
time from sparks but the blase was
extinguished before any damage was
done to it.
There was very little wind which
was a good thing, as the cotton gin
was close and might easily have
cauht fire, had the wind been in the
right direction. It s not known how
the fire started.

LETTER FROM FRANCE
Somewhere in France,
Sept 6, 1918.
1 just received fourteen letters, six
* 'liearl?romnso rrMriV.^'V thffiW ftWe
received some of the letters before
hut the mail was lost and that's why
received them all in a bunch. I
wish 1 could have received them be-
fore but “better late than never."
1 ou sure write good letters. I can’t
write a newsy letter hut you’ll have
lo blame the kaiser.
1 know just how Nate felt when
he wrote “I like it fine at the front
line,” ha! ha! Fritz kept us awake al-
most all last night and some day I
hope to tell them how much I think
of him. It has been showering all
aay and from what I hear the rainy
season is beginning. The days have
been nice hut are cooler and the
nights are cold.
You can tell the girls not to worry
ibout their beau- over here* for I’ve
heard lots of them say they would
give almost anything to talk to their
"hello” for me and that I’ll try to
American girls. Tell my friends
write to them when ever I get writing
paper enough ahead. But that if they
have plenty to drop me a lino or two
for a soldier neve" has letters enough.
Tom Neeley hauls the kitchen range
for the company that I eat with and
I get to eat with him quite often but
I've not seen him foi the last day or
Don’t worry over me for I’m as alt
as usual or more so, rather, for i

-ee Grandpa Michauts’ folks over
after I’ve been hete four months
which will be the first part of Novem-
ber. I passed wi hin fifteen miles of
them as we came 'up front.”
I hope the package gets to me
O K. for 1 need the pen and watch
and the camels( cigarettes) will sure
hit the spot. It is hard to get an
older for a package from U. S. hut
we can buy tobacco from the Y. M.
We have hob-nail transportation
and a hike of twent> miles after dark
with a pack that weighs from fifty
to seventy pounds makes a fellow get
rid of all the extras he has I’d like
to tell you how everything is carried
on at the front but of course that
isn’t allowed for good reasons.
Fritz isn’t very polite and kept me
putting on my gas-mask every little,
while, won’t even let me write a let-
ter quietly. I sleep in a dug-out and
fere very well It is twenty minutes
lo twelve and as 1 have a lot of sleep
coming to me I’ll say goodnight.

MORE EFFICIENT SERVICE
The Republican fa i d to receive
its paper from Oklahoma City last
week and the issue had to be print-
ed on old stock on hand. Those who
had been reading the serial story
were disappointed. As we write this
we don’t know whether or not we will
receive the paper for this issue or not

Dear Mr. Harding; —
Please send mo a Republican. I
can’t get along without it and I have
missed it greatly the past two weeks.
have waited to send in my address
until I should be permanently located
over heie and it has taken quite a'
time. I think 1 am now settled down
to stay awhile a* my present bunk-
1 am now in the S. A. T C. and of
course in the army I think I am
going to like it all right. We get
good eats and can't kick on the way
we are treated. Everything is start-
ing off fine and the lieutenant of the
company in which I am, complimented
us very highly or. the way in which
we were taking to the work. He said
we were doing fine for beginners.
We were allowed to select our work
in the University when we enrolled
but 1 think they aie going to make
change thi-m. As 1 understand
it now the men will be classified ac-
cording to age and the 18’s will take
one course the 19’s another, the 20’s
another, and so on. We don’t know-
how long we will sta\ here. All men
have an equal chance at an officers'
There is also a detachment of
naval students here but there are not
many of them. The army is away in
the majority here and our lieutenants
are always making fun of the navy.
There are over a thousand men in
the S. A. T. C. altogether We have
three large mess halls and it just
..bout fills them all when they all get
in We are stationed in large houses
that have been taken over by the gov-
ernment, such as fraternity and soro-
rity houses, largo private homes, etc.
The government certainly is dealing
hard with these fraternities and so-
lorities. Several of them have had
to move out and it is hard for them
to find houses.
Well, don’t forget to send the paper.
My address is—
Jxe J. Miller.

SAW FINE CATTLE
i. Wyman Thompson was in town
the first of the week attending thfe
regular meeting of tne board of coun-
ty commissioners and paid the Re-
publican a pleasant call. Mr. Thomp-
son attended the fair at Muskogee
last ' week and says there was the
greatest show- of cattle he ever saw
at any fair.
GREAT ORDER BUYS BONDS
W. R. Hunter, recorder of the lo-
cal lodge of the A. O. U W. last week
received from the Grand lodge of that
nerry Loan norm--. -
The Grand Lodge, A. O. U W., set
aside the sum of $10,000 to invest in
this issue in the state of Oklahoma,
and the amount sen' the local lodge
was the quota assigned to Mayes
county The A. O. U. W. is paying all
war death claims with levying an
extra assessment, which speaks well
tor this great order.
In considering the question of peace
by diplomacy we must remember that
howitzers and machine guns are the
peace arguments best adapted to the
understanding of Germany—and she
is likely now to get enough of both
to convince her.
