The Express editor and better
half had the pleasure of spending
5 or 6 days in Hollis the past

ser and family. While en route
we found that a big rain had fal-
len between Mangum and Altus.
Alfalfa and wheat are doing fine
although most people in some
parts are wanting rain just now
Very little corn has yet been
planted,but most everybody have
their land ready for planting corn
cotton and feed.
We ran over some mighty
pretty country between here anc

the purebred White Orpington
variety, We called on Horace
Shepard, editor and manager
he Altus Times. Mr. Sheparc
has one of the best equippec
plants in western Oklahoma, and
what is better, he owns the fine
brick building in which the plan
is located. We also visited Judge
Orr, editor of the Altus News.
We have known Judge Orr ever
since the Express editor was 16
years old. Altus is a neat, clean
progressive town, one that we
would like very much to be a cit
izen of, more especially if we
owned Horace Shepard’s outfit
lock, stock and barrel. But we
find that all newspapers of west
ern Oklahoma have done well to
make both ends meet because of
thedrouth we had last year.
At Hollis we found Luke Rob
erts, editor and chief ramrod of
the Hollis Post-Herald, ready and
willing to favor a brother scribe
at every turn. Mr. Roberts has
about $400. on candidate an
nouncements, and his people, the
business men of Hollis, are the
most liberal advertisers in Okla-
homa. He carries two and three
whole page ads besides many
half and quarter page ads most
of the time. The business men
of Hollis are the most wide-a-
wake merchants we ever ran
across, taking it year in and year
Train connections are as good
as could be asked for. Anyone
can leave Carter on the 6:18
morning train, goto Altus,
thence to Hollis, arriving at the
latter point at 12 o’clock; leave
Hollis on the evening train, after
spending three hours and twenty
minutes there, and arrive at Car-
• ter in time for supper the same
•f- day they leave here,
Rev. J M Setser, a Baptist min-
ister, has all of his time taken
and many places calling for him
where he cannot go because his
time is all taken up. We had a
delightful visit and hope to get

M B Rook is back from Saint

Dry Goods, Notions, Shoes etc.,
which he has arranged on bis

isement and let the people know
about this new and up-to-date as

Mr. Waggoner: I want t o
read the Express for it is like a
message from Canaan to me. I
can find out what my friends are
doing. I do hope that there will
be a good crop this year and that
Carter will boom and all the
farmers will be able to save their
farms from the loan companies
for those people are near and
dear to me, and I know it has
been hard on them for the past
four years. Give all the people
in and around Carter my kindest
regards and don’t forget your-
Now Mr. Waggoner you will
please find one dollar for which
send the Carter Express and the
Kansas City Post and the South-

Lowe Siddons came in Tuesday
to meet his cousin Lottie Sefton,
whom he expected from White
Deer, Texas. Mrs. Lockwood, a
Socialist speaker, who was to
speak at Port, came in on this
train. Lowe met the Socialist
speaker, and taking her for his
cousin, whom be had not seen
since she was six years old, asked
if her name was Lottie. She,
thinking he said Lockwood, re-
plied "yes”, whereupon Lowe
proceeded to kiss Mrs. Lockwood,
and proceeded to get her bag-
gage and as they left the depot,
met Mrs. Siddons, who kissed
Mrs. Lockwood also and said:
"This isn’t Lottie is it?” Mrs.
Lockwood replied "No, this is
Mrs. Lockwood”, which explain-
ed their mistake. However, Mrs.
Sefton was in the depot inquiring
for Mrs. Siddons a t the same
time. She was found and carried
out to her aunt’s, Mrs. Siddons,
where she will visit for some
time. Mrs. Lockwood was then
taken charge of by Mr. Clark
who came in to take her out to
her appointment at Port. Every-
body happy, no harm done, but
the laugh is on Lowe Siddons for
being able to kiss one lady at
least. They say this lady is a fair
beauty and was dressed in the
latest and most up to-date fash-
ions. Some of the boys already
have it in for Lowe for being a
Robert Hughes, editor of the
Kiowa Coduty News, and JG
rangeo to open up a big general
m rchandise store in the McCarty
brick building about April 11 at
Carter. Mr. Perry expects to
carry about a $15,000.00 stock of
general merchandise which will
add materially to the trade com-
ing to Capter. This will help the
town as well as he Ip our farmers.
J S Siddons will set out 2,000
pears and 2,000 peach trees, tak-
ing about 40 acres for the trees.
These trees will be furnished by
the Tecumseh Nursery Co., who
propose to furnish the trees for 1
crop of fruit out of 15 years,
write this company at Tecumseh,
Okla., and stock your land with
good fruit trees.

The unanimous, even enthusias-
tic, verdict of the Oklahoma jury
in the suit against the blind sen-
ator by the wife of a disappointed
office-seeker, her helpers being
also disappointed candidates for
office, brought a sense of relief
to thousands of the Senator’s
friends throughout ihe country,
who feared political influences.
The circumstances of the case and
the result have strengthened
senator Gore. He was one of
the earliest and has been one of
the most consistent progressives
on the Democratic side of the
Senate Chamber. Oklahoma has
set a high standard of excellence
in the only two senators the state
has had. She had the good sense
to re-elect Owen and will re elect
