FIGHT HI REVIVAL E EDWIN SAMUEL MONTAGU THE CONFEDERATE DAUGHTERS The United Daughters of the Confederacy was one of the most enthusiastic of the women’s organizations in war work for 1918. In the American military hospitals in France seven complete wards, of ten beds each, were endowed at a cost\ of $600 a bed, making an annual cost of $42,000. Eight million, one hundred thousand hospital garments, surgical dressings and knitted articles were made b> members for the Red Cross; $82,000 was given to the Red Cross alone by the chapter, not including individual gifts. Eight hundred and thirty French and Belgian orphans were supported by the U. D. C. at a cost of $20,000. Eight and one-half millier dollars worth of third and fourth Liberty bonds is owned by the U. D. C., as chapters and individuals. Fifty-six million dollars worth of third and fourth Liberty bonds were sold by the U. D. C. Two and a half million dollars worth of War Savings Stamps were bought and sold by chapter members. This is only a partial record, as at least half of the chapters have kept no record and could not give a report to the committee in charge. The U. D. C. is now raising a fund of $50,000, known as the “Hero fund,” to be used for educational purposes. The organization already has 750,000 scholarships to its credit.

The first two bales of cotton of the 1910 crop were received in) Ada yesterday afternoon. The two bales came within three hours of each other. They were also the first! bales to be ginned in Oklahoma this! year.    * The first bal** to come to town was brought bv O. D. Hall, who lives on Mrs. S. M. Torbett’s place near Ada. It was ginned by the Pontotoc Custom gin and weighed 4 25 pounds. The cotton graded middling and was bought by T. J. Cha jobless, the purchase price amounting to 30c per lh., or $135-60. To this was added $60 given by the business men of Ada to the man who brought in the first bale of the season. Mr. Ed Harraway also gave Mr. Hall $5 for growing the cotton on Mrs. Torbett’s place. This made a total of $200.60 Mr. Hall received for the cotton in addition to what; he will get for the seed which have not yet been sold. The second bale of the season came in late yesterday afternoon. It came from Maxwell and was brought by IL C. Mitchell. This bale DEALER ADMITS BIE PROFIT OX DRESSES PARIS, Aug. 26th.—The endless dickering in the supreme council is having a serious effect. The revival of many questions in which the United States is not directly interested is making the American delegation extremely impatient. The Americans are constantly called upon to act as arbiters in Balkan and other questions, with the result that sections of the European press, especially the French press, are assailing the American position on questions in which the Americans acted wholly without self-consideration.    . Herbert Hoover’s denunciation or the council’s hesitancy in straightening out the Hungarian tangle and protecting the rights of all the entente nations in the matter of Hungarian reparation is reflected in the attitude of the entire American delegation. While some members of the supreme council appear to take the same position, the feeling is growing in American circles that several representatives of the great powers tire not inclined at the present time to bring Rumania to account on the armistice terms. The American delegates feel at a great disadvantage in the present arrangement; the representatives of the other powers befog near home aj-g able to confer directly with their governments, thus making the council in general a clearing house for European disputes not directly related to peace. It is the belief that after the sig- McALESTER, Okla., Aug. 25.— Sam Oppenheim, owner of a women's ready-towear garment store bere. leeched $225 for a suit for j na|^r*8 pf the Austrian treaty the which he paid $14°;    $ lo for a I conference will have a long vaca- dress on which he paid $84.50 and tion thus forcing the various foreign offices to handle matters heretofore loaded upon the conference. made nearly IOO percent on a number of transactions, he said in his testimony today at the court of inquiry being conducted by Carl Monk, county attorney But Mr. Oppenheim said a strike; of Eastern clothing shops was to blame for the high prices, and he also said the cost of women’s cloth-j ing next spring would be 50 per cent more than last.

That the robbers did not get all the money in the bank at the time is due to the coolness of F. M. Bell, assistant cashier, and Miss Winifred Gardenhaire, who were in the building. The three bandits drove their car to the rear door of the bank, left one man in the car, stationed another at the door. while the third entered the bank with a gun in each hand. Bell, who was waiting on a customer at the window', made no sign when the command was given to "roll up the money," but proceeded to comply, in the meantime quietly giving the alarm to Miss Gardenhaire.
