C. M Gwaltney near Jones Chapel. The four sisters were Mrs. Etta Ward of Quay, New Mexico. Mrs.
D. W. Shilling of Ada. Mrs. L. R Luckey of Kus*, and Mrs. Gwalt ney. Another guest at the reunion was Mrs. Kila Buster, sister-in-law of Mrs. Ward. A splendid dinner was served and all enjoyed the day to the utmost. particularly Mrs. Buster, who has been an invalid for quite a while.
Mr. Ward and wife left Ada thirteen years ago and settled in New Mexico. They live in the heart of the prospective oil territory of that state and can see many drills now boring for oil. They will return to
H. H. Gladwell has Just received the finished model of a machine that he patented some time ago. It is a machine for stamping bank checks and operates by being attached to an adding machine and is run with the same mechanism that president j operates the *iddin*’ machine.
Mr. Glad well invented this machine some two years ago and or-i .misted a company composed of Ada citizens to manufacture and sell his invention. A contract has been made with an eastern company for rnanu-: actu ring the invention, but the opening of the war prevented the
carrying out of the contract. The Patent Holding Company of Ada will make arrangements in the immediate future for manufacturing ihis invention in quantities aud putting it on the market.
The simplicity of Mr. Gladwell's invention makes it possible to offer the machine to the public at a nominal charge. It works with accuracy aud rapidity and will be a great labor saver to banks and other institutions. There is every reason for believing that this invention will om be a pronounced

That Thelma Cannon, a negro boy of Ada, is eat tied to the Carnegie Medal for heroism, is the opinion of Mr. Leonard C. Snell of Pittsburgh,
Pennsylvania, who has been in Ada since yesterday investigating the story of Cannon’s rescue of five negroes from drowning in Little Sandy more than three years ago.
Citizens of Ada will remember the flood of rain that fell here January 20, 1916. For four day* snow and rain had been falling and Little Sandy was already swollen. On the 20th a perfect cloudburst came, the rainfall of the afternoon amount-to 6.5 inches. All the lowlands of the city were flooded, the water ran thru the postoffice on 12th Street, even swamping the Palm Garden thru its back door on Main.
Little Sandy became an angry torrent, sweeping away many houses from their foundation til the northern part of the city.
Among the families living in the colored section was that of Joe Col-, lins, h section ham! on the Katy.
The water rose to a depth of morel than five feet in his house, preventing the escape of his family.
Several unsuccessul attempts were' made to rescue the marooned ne-groes, men on horseback trying to reach tile house, bul the current was too strong for even a horse to swim. Express At that time Thelma Cannon wasj one at only seventeen .'ears old, but he had!company. Thus. been raised on the North Canadian been stolen by at El Keno and was a powerful swimmer. He went into Little Sandy, swam fifty .'aids thru the icy cur-r* in, and rescued the five negroes, each trip. Three of them were
children, one a woman, and the
other a man. The danger of Ills « \pl<>iI was doubly great because of the fact that the water was mixed with snow and ice.
From swimming in the cold water Cannon contracted rheumatism and came near dying. He was placed on a stretcher and conveyed phur Springs. Texas, where tnained for year after

He was arrested with George Wilson and Mrs. George Wilson, alias Buster Cody, who formerly served a term in the penitentiary on charge of a violation of the narcotic act. A quantity of nitro glycerine and a complete set of cracksman’s tools Were found at their rooms at the Eagle flats.
The arrest was the re>ult of tracing the recent theft of adding machines which cases were in the hands of Mur*! Grady, former police officer. and now captain |f detectives for the Fulk bureau.
Three adding machines were recovered by Grad}, one being located at Eufaula, one at the American company’s depot here, and Harry Bowman’s Printing are alleged to have the three prisoners. “Fat'' Burna, according to Bartlett. mach a confession this morning that he Lad planned a big “haul” Jus' bt to • U lug captured and would have made it if his arrest had been delayed.

MEXICO CITY, Sept. I.— A de lense of Mexico against foreign rep- I resentativei, particularly from the United States, regarding the lives I of ioreignera and their property ' was contained in a message of Pres- j ident Carranza, read at the opening I session of congress last night.
Particular reference was made in the message to alleged injustices practiced against Mexicans in the United States.
A long list of the alleged offenses was given under the section of the address devoted to foreign relations.
Th* message also defended Mexico’s neutrality during the war and protested against charges that the Mexican government was incapable and unwilling to protect foreign lives and property.
In the message President Carranza asserted that Mexica City did not ask admission to the league of nations, because, he said, the league did not establish equality for all nations and races. He reiterated that Mexico had not and would not recognize the Monroe Doctrine.
Regarding oil legislation, the message said the government was willing to conciliate, but would not sacrifice its national sovereignty.

COLUMBUS, O.. Sept. 3.—Their ranks reduced to approximately 135,000, members of the Grand Army of the Republic are about ready to retire from the stage of action, and bequeath their traditions to
11heil sons, veterans of the European w ar. now organizing into the American Legion.
The fifty-third annual encampment of the G. A. R . which opens here I Sunday, September 7, for one week, probably will be the last great encampment of the old veterans, according to James E. Campbell, former governor of Ohio and chairman of the local committee on arrangements.
“Of course there will be other encampments, but in ail probability this will be the last big one. This was indicated at the last encampment when thousands of veterans in the far West voted to hold this year’s encampment in Columbus in preference to St. Paul. Most of them were born in the Central and Eastern states and they wanted to return, as they expressed it, to pay a last visit. to their old homes and bid a final farewell to old and dear friends, Governor Campbell said.
Governor Campbell expressed the belief that the G. A. R. after this year’s encampment, though maintaining its organization, will gradually turn over to veterans of the European war their activities. “This is
indicated,” he said, “by the fact that for the first time in its history, the G. A. R. has invitetd veterans of another war, the world conflict, to
participate in its annual parade and
other exercises this year. The G. A.R has been a very jealous organization, never permitting any organization except the Sons of Veterans to participate in any of its activities, then I only in the parade. Now our own

About two weeks ago John McKinley, Joe Cole, N. B. Haney, Jr., and Bart Smith left Ada on a “wild goose chase” to Florida, where they were supposed to look into the proposition of investments in grapefruit orchards.
That they had a go-jJ time on the trip is attested by the numerous; letters received from them while on the trip, but the News has refrained from publishing more than one of them to* the reason that ic detected ihat at least some of them weie forgeries. It seems that each tried to play a practical joke or, one of the others and for fear of getting a libel suit on its hands the News called a halt after publisning one letter which bore the name of Bart Smith at the bottom but which, in all likelihood was a forgery.
Ar any rate the soys had a fine trip, and one by one are “coming into camp.” John McKinley is home, having taken the shortest cut to get here, while the other three of the party boarded a boat as Jacksonville and are making the trip home via New York City. This route is a little 'round about” way to get to Ada, but the experience by boat from Jacksonville to the world’s metropolis will no doubt be worth the time and expense.

These merchants, he declared, had “gambled” on sales in Poland, Czecho Slovakia, the Baltic states and Germany at high prices, but these states have only a depreciated local currency and many commodities are in danger of spoiling as the central European market for foodstuffs is limited to the ability of the peoples to buy on credit.
“This year’s speculations,” Mr. Hoover said, “are due, in my opinion, chiefly to the belief of food merchants and manufacturers that when the blockade was removed there would be an enormous demand for foodstuffs and other commodities in Central and Eastern Europe. This speculation was not due to any important shortage, at present, of actual supply. This speculative fever which was not confined to foods, was greatly stimulated by the long
