   Adair County Democrat (Newspaper) - May 24, 1929, Stilwell, Oklahoma                                - MORE MONEY - MORE BUSINESS - LET'S GO!! u COTTON COMES BACK. CAPPER BACKS FARM BILL COOLIDGE IS EARLY. WHY FARMERS LAUGH Cotton growers will be glad to hear that big department stores are specializing in cotton goods. Cotton arrives is the announcement of one store, the biggest in New York, doing about $90,000,000 a" year. "Dotted Swiss" "Pigne" and "'ginghams'" are featured energetically. "Often woman changes," the French say. Real or imitation rilks have been the rage. Now King Cotton comes back. If Americans will advertise, and emphasize "Cotton goods grown and made hi America," instead of advertising "British Cotton cloth," that will help. Senator. Capper of Kansas, trusted by farmers, backs president Hoover's farm bill. He opposes the debenture subsidy plan, whidh would pay a bonus to exporting middlemen, cost the taxpayers heavily, and do the farmer little, if any'good. ADAIR COUNTY'S LEADING 'NEWSPAPER VOLUME NUMBER 32. STILWELL, OKLAHOMA, FRIDAY, MAY 24, 1929. NUMBER 16. ELMO PUGH BUILDS NEW  HOUSE ON HIS FARM Elmo Pugh, field worker for the First National bank, has built a new house on the farm which he recently bought.   . The farm borders the town on the southwest corner and is an ideal stock and fruit farm. Mr. Pugh has stocked the farm with pure bred milk cows and plans to raise this kind of stock to sell. He has a 600-tree peach orchard that is well cared for and will soon be a heavy producer. The farm has spring water and an all-season pond to supply water for the stock, The part that is not being cultivated is well set in pasture grasses and a part is meadow that is almost ready to be cut for hay. Mr. Pugh and his family have moved into, the newly erected house to personally supervise the work on the farm. He plans to devote the farm to the raising of pure-bred milk stock and states that he has already sold more than 20 head of cattle since he has owned the place. At present he has a beautiful herd of fat cattle and he plans to increase this number. Calvin Coolidge, as director of the New York Life Insurance company, arrived twenty minutes ahead of time for his first director's meeting. "Seest thou a man diligent in his business, he shall stand before kings." The former president is interested in life insurance, not for profit, but for possibilities of public service. His day's work yesterday paid 50; not much according to present ideas, but it is fifty times as much as Mr. Cool-idge's father paid the black-bearded giant who earned $1. a day fifty years ago in the Coolidge blacksmith shop.  Tears and laughter afford reUef. Xibud laughter, violent weeping, c^use' the mind to rest and bring temporary peace. There will be farm relief laughter in the news that railroads have consented to lower freight rates on wheat flour from the Middle West to the Atlantic. The notion that farmers will get more for their wheat when flour mills pay lower freight rates will make the; saddest farmer laugh. Relief for flour manufacturers is welcome. They are having a hard time with chain stores regulating their profits. But charging them ten cents less a barrel for shipping flour will not give the farmers two cents more a bushel for wheat. Relief for farmers and for many others will come for generally increased prosperity, and especially from sharing the national wealth more widely. American farmers once sold corn for less^ than the amount of the tariff now proposed. Prisons have changed. One ancient hero/solitary in prison, had to encourage him only the example of, a humble spider spinning and*respinning a web as fast was it was torn down. A well known oil magnate, jailed because he wouldn't answer Senators' questions, has the deeper^ pleasanter inspiration^ of a blonde trained nurse. BOND ISSUE IS GAINING FAVOR WW PEOPLE $150,000,000 Bond Issue   Would   Be Paid Entirely From Taxes On Automobiles and Gasoline. ' SCOUT TROOPS REORGANIZED Scout Executive G. M. Hass of Muskogee waB present at. a meeting of the Stilwell scout troop No. 44, last Thursday night to assist in the reorganization of the troop. The following officers were elected to office for this year: troop committee, W, A. Wobdtuff, chairman; G. F. Hughes, promoter. H. C. Bone, inspector. H. G. White was elected scout master with Rev. Cbas. H. Cole assistant -scout jmaster.-,Larry South worth was elected1 leader of the Beavers and Woodman Blanck leader of the Fox patrol. Plans-are already under way" for a camping trip for the tropp and many other activities are plarjned for the troop during the summer. ; From all over the-state comes favorable comment on the proposed bond issue for hard surfaced roads, according to the reports in.daily papers. ' .Thursday morning Judge R. Li Williams discussed the project in an article for the Tulsa World in which he stated that he favored the bond Issue if the cost was to be taken care of by an increase in gasoline tax. A 5c tax on gasoline would yield ah annual inconle, of between 15 and 20 millions of dollars per year, he. said. With the present revenue, the state has been able to build very few roads since such a great part of it has been spent in maintenance. This maintenance cost will be reduced just as rapidly as the hard surfaced roads are built, according to road authorities. # .. * * * * # ABOUT BRISBANE STILWELL MAN OUSTED FROM ROAD POSITION TURNBULL'S BOND REDUCED FROM TEN TOFIVE THOUSAND The bond of J.
