   Adair County Democrat (Newspaper) - August 9, 1929, Stilwell, Oklahoma                                IThis Weekl Bf Arthur Brisbane BACK TO STOCKINGS. AMERICAN PROSPERITY. HOW MUCH FOR FARMERS? WITHOUT HOPE. Manufacturers of silk and other stocking hope fthat advertising fwSll enable them to drive out the "bare leg craze, now afflicting lovely women." Moralizing appeals to modest refinement won't do. Bare legs must banished, as the almost universal habit of chewing tobacco was banished by public opinion. Make women realize that an imitation of a butcher shop is not artistic and they will go back to stockings. ADAIR COUNTY'S LEADING NEWSPAPER VOLUME NUMBER 32. STILWELL, OKLAHOMA,    FRIDAY, AUGUST 9, 1929. NUMBER 27. LOAGL DEALER TELLS OF FORD Says 40 Per Cent Of All Cars Sold Are Model A Fords; Million Built In Five Months. COUNTY AGENT PLANS SEPTIC TANK DISPLAY College Men To Be Here August 28 To Help With Septic Tank Demonstration. Calvin Coolidge, tanned, smilipg, beaming with health, is enthusiastic about American prosperity. He well may be. Money is made rapidly here. Three years ago an investing company was formed with $6,500,000. Now it issues $24,000,000 in six percent preferred stqck, and shows profits of over $4O,O0O,t)O|). .NeveVtheJees, DON'T GAMBLE. That advice is probably useless.. The public agrees with the distinguished Mr. B. Baer, who says: "If we cannot get our faces on Government money, the next best thing is to get your hands on it." Too many believe that gambling is the best way to get your hands on it. "Forty per cent of all cars sold are Model "A" Fords, and 1,000,000 of them were built between Feb. 4 and July 24, 1929," said Jim Worsham, manager of the Fletcher Motor company here. According to an advertisement carried in this issue of the Democrat, the first Model "A" Ford was built Dec. 3, 1927.  The millionth was built Feb. 4, 1929, and the two-millionth was built July 24, 1929. Henry Ford states that the next million will be built in less than six months time and he does not say exactly how much less but expects to cut down the present record of five months and 20 days by the use of new time saving machinery. The local agency has been selling new cars about as fast as they can get them and Mr. Worsham says that he looks forward to even better sales during the fall months. Farmers are told that the value~ of this year's wheat crop has increased $364,000,000 since June 1. How much of that the farmers will get, how much middle., men, and especially wheat gamblers, will get, nobody knows. Farmers might hire an intelligent wheat speculator to sell their crops for future delivery when prices are high. As it is they wait until the wheat is threshed. Then the price is lower. Present estimates show that the four big crops, wheat, corn, oats, and rye, are worth $3,545,000,000, in increase of more than a thousand million dollars in two months. B. E. White,and W. H. McPheeters of the A. and M. college will be here August 28 to assist in a septic tank demonstration which will be held at the B. A. White farm. Mr. White is building a septic tank under the direction of the extension department of the Oklahoma A. & M. college and expects to have it almost completed on the 28th when the general public is invited to be present to Bee how it is built and the advantages of this form of sewer disposal. It is expected that on the same date a demonstration will be held on the Johnny Keene farm on installing a home water system. Get in touch with Mr. Hayman if you are interested in either of these projects and he will give you full information on the time and the place of each of these demonstrations. CHEESE FACTORY TO START SEPT. I, OFFICIALS STATE Will Locate Factory in Young Building; Expect to Start The Work Monday. The Cheese Factory committee of the local Chamber of Commerce closed a deal late Thursday afternoon with King and Knott of Siloam SpringB to put a cheese factory in operation in Stilwell by September 1. . Under the terms of the contract the people of Stilwell and surrounding country will furnish the men with a building and a bonus to induce them to bring their machinery here arid put the plant in operation. A sufficient amount of money has been raised by the committee to buy the Young building and work will be-(Continuetd on last page) HAYMAN TO ACCOMPANY MEN TO STILLWATER SCHOOL OPENS AT UNION GRADE NO. ONE MONDAY WITH BIGJNROLLMENT Eighty Pupils Enroll at Central High School of Union: Grade - �  - � District. A savage outbreak of convicts in New York's Clinton prison is easily explained. Too many "life" and "long term" prisoners were herded together. Such prisoners are willing to risk death because they are hopeless. Lacking hope, and its courage, you have a bad situation. Goethe said: "Money lost, SOMETHING lost.**� "Honor lost, MUCH lost.*** "Courage lost, EVERYTHING lost, better you were never born." A MISTAKE For the past few days one of the men in our town has taken it upon himself to spread the news up and down the street that the "Chapters" appearing in the Democrat are being rwitten by someone outside Jthe Democrat office. This propaganda is being spread simply and purely for the purpose of breaking the confidence of th'e people in the work that the Democrat is donig. We are getting a little too close to some things for the comfort of some people and they get back at us in this manner. Our readers might be interested in knowing that our articles are being oopied and commented on all over the state. To say the least, we have courage enough to sign our, articles and not credit them to "A Citizen." We are only giving facts and when some man to whom, we have not referred takes it upon -himself to discredit the work we are doing, it seems that he must have something to cover up. It is not that we don't want anyone "stealing our thunder," but we simply want to assure our readers that every single statement and figure given are facts that we have looked up ourselves in the county records, and any report to the effect that any person outside the Democrat office is writing these articles ip a malicious lie circulated purely for business and political reasons. OLIN PERKINS, Editor Under the guiding hand of E. M. Castle, the new superintendent and Smith-Hughes teacher, Union Grade No. 1 opened" Monday morning with an enrollment of about 80 pupils. 25 were enrolled in the high school department and the others in 'the grades. The enrollment at the other grade schools that make up the district had not been reported Teachers at the central school are Mr. and Mrs. E. M. Castle, Miss Gladys Scofield, and Miss Merrill Ribss. Miss Roxy Thurber is the teacher at Bunch; Mrs. Led Girdner at Dry Creek and Miss Angelina Mays at Lyons. Miss Mays has a couple more weeks at the normal before she can start and her father, Bill Mays, is substituting for her. Mr. Castle is well satisfied with the outlook for the coming year and feels that they will be able to accomplish a great deal during this term. --: REV. GEORGE WILSON George Wilson, veteran Cherokee Baptist minister and missionary, passed away Wednesday afternoon at his home 8 miles east of Tahlequah in the Briggs or Cedar Tree community, after an illness of almost a year. He spent his entire life in this county, where he devoted his time to fanning and the ministry of the gospel. . He leaves a wife and four children, with many other relatives. He married Susie Groundhog thirty years ago and through all the years was a faithful helpmate to him. For 15 years he was missionary of the Cherokee Baptist association, giving up his work only when his health failed. Three years ago he was moderator of the same body. Besides his church work he took considerable interest in school affairs, having served on the school board in the Briggs district for some five years. He was a trusted member of the A. T. Association. . He was interred in the Cedar Tree cemetery Thursday afternoon. Funeral services were conducted in the church by Revs. Frank Justice and J. C. Hen-drick.-Tahlequah Republican Star. ---- REP PAINT Red Paint jhais been splashed all over the front of the Palace Barber shop, Glassley's shoe shop and the Fletcher Motor company...

Woodruff, Sr., was in Fort Smith last Friday. CHAPTER FIVE BY THE EDITOR As the "Adair County Unofficial Organ," we have thiB week a little information that is not found in the Commissioner's proceedings as published in the Official Organ. Most of us innocent taxpayers think that when an item is marked "disallowed" in the commisioner's report that it ends right there, but upon investigation I find that it is. only the beginning of where the taxpayer pays and pays. .--V- The man who has the dteiuOjfrtd claim goes before a Justice of the Peace and brings suit againstthe county. The county attorney, may or may" not-put up a srre&tS* argument to defends the._ county., pocketbook, but the Justice almost invariably arises from a state of semi-consciousness at the close of the hearing and signs, dates and puts his official seal on a judgment against Adair county. To this judgement is attached the cost for the Justice court and for the district court when it is fijed in the court clerk's office. When the suit is brought in the county court only one cost is added. In some instances I found where the attorney fee had been added to the judgment and had been given the official sanction of the judge. We give below a list of judgments filed on the District and County Judgment docket that have been gotten in our courts during the last fiscal year.

We taxpayers have to dig up that extra $6,722.18 within the next three years with interest at 6 per cent added. It's mighty hot to begin digging that out but unless something is done about it we will have about that much more next year.
