By the Associated Presa WEIMAR, June 24.—Dr. Haniel von Haimhausen who was, on last Sunday, designated as German representative to sign the treaty of peace for the Germans, has telegraphed his resignation rather than sign the treaty. The German leaders seem to fear the consequences of being parties to the peace agreement, w'hicb is an indication that internal troubles in Germany are on the increase. Afraid to sign and afraid not to sizes up the situation in the unfortunate empire which percipitated the world war. WASHINGTON. D. C., June 23. —July I is National Buttermilk Day.

The other is that the dairy indus- It is pointed out that, while straight buttermilk is an excellent drink, there are a number of delicious combinations. Buttermilk lemonade is obtained by adding the juice of two or three lemons to a quart of buttermilk, with sugar to taste.

John Gardner, one of the pioneer citizens of Ada, a good friend of the News and everybody else in the city, after rambling for some time as many of the rest of us have done, settles down in Ada again and pronounces it the best town in the United States—certainly the best in Oklahoma. Mr. Gardner is associated with the Georgia State Savings Association and for some time has been located in Tulsa. He had his choice of staying in Tulsa or taking one of a half dozen other good cities in the state, but decided on Ada. He has opened offices here and is ready to do business for his company. John is a live wire and we welcome him back home. The lumber which has been used in the inside of the tabernacle would reach, if the pieces were placed end to end, a distance of 35,000 feet. This would furnish a board walk for one from here to j Oakman, to Ahlosa and Union Valley, almost to Center and Franks, j It would circle Ada a time or two and looks, in the pile, like a considerable lumber yard itself. # Contrary to the common impression that the shed is a warm place, I it is delightfully cool and will probably remain, so to everybody unless it be to the fellow whose conscience becomes very ranch awake under the lashings of the gospel.
