The ftr^t noted Incident in Starr’s life which lias come down to the present day in stories of the old pioneers was his duel with Floyd Wilson, a railroad detective, in the road near l^enepah, Ok., in 1893. This has often been called the beginning of his career as an outlaw.  During the years that followed Starr robbed many banks, always made a clean getaway, always male bis raids in the daytime, and nev* r killed a man.

Dear Sir:  I doubt very seriously if any other agency in a city means so much to the growth of that city as its newspaper. It can be made a medium to draw the people closer together in community sympathy and co-operation, and as a mouthpiece for the people in remedying public ills and in promoting everything that makes for a clean town physically and morally and its upbuilding commercially.  I sincerely believe that no paper anywhere in any city twice the size of Ada is doing this in such a fine way as is the Ada News. You are to be congratulated on the splendid paper you are giving us and should have the united support of all the people.

WHY HOI A BAND,  SAYS MILTON GARNER  Milton Garner urges that representatives from the Ada Chamber of Commerce bo present tomorrow night when the band meets to organize and practice. Mr. Garner states there are as many as twenty-four band men in Ada who should be in the band, but because of the little interest in the city generally and the lack of support by the Chamber of Commerce and city authorities they take no stock In it. He feels that Ada should support the band like other cities do as a band is one of the best advertisements a town can have.  The local bandmen have been asked to play at the big celebration at Allen on July 4th which they will likely do.  Cemetery Association will meet Wednesday at 4 P.
