Since they created the men for wars, they should have something lo say about war. Everybody agrees with Mrs. Pankhurst now, and Mr. Baldwin, who opposed her. will unveil her monument. "When, she was alive, demanding justice fpr women, they put her in jail. She starved herself until she was released, justice not liking the idea of disposing of her corpse, and that is what it would have had to do. Released from prison, she renewed her fight, chained herself to the iron railings before Ihe Commons, was jailed again, and again entered self-imposed starvation. Her courage won British women vote in the House of Commons and help to make laws. Mrs. Pankhurst lies iu her grave, her death hastened by hardship. And those that hounded her now honor her. She is satisfied. -A Commercial Club for Stilwell- HERBERT HELTON NOT KILLED A report iu the state papers Thurs day told of the death or H. L. Helton, Fairfax garage owner, in a plane crash.

Miss Utyakemorc contracted} pneumonia about the first of January and this illness was preceded, by an attack of flu. Funeral services were held at the Methodist church at 200 p. in. Sunday, conducted by Rev. .1. L. Brown of Saliisaw. Funeral arrangements were in charge of J. F. Roberts, undertaker. Miss Blakemore had made her home for the past several years with her brother, Clarence Blakemore, and his two sons. She was widely known and highly respected by the people of this community.

"Your average price given last week for grapes shipped out of Stilwell last season is much too low," said .1. J. Cook of the C. &. E. Produce in protest to Ihe article that we carried on fruit conditions in Ihis Irade territory. "Our figures show thai wi*paid an average of lO'ic per basket for all the grapes we bought here last sen-son for car lot shipment. 1 don'l know what the other two cars . sold here netted the growers, but [ it surely could not have been low enough to bringh the average down - to 12 cents as you stated." he con-: tinned. In an interview with Clyde Bust - of Weslville Monday night, he stat-i ed that the average price. paid in Weslville was lVi'- for seven cars and that the sel'.ing and loading charges to the growers was about 2 1-1 cents. This shows a net return of 15 cents to the Weslville. growers. "You left the impression further that none of the growers were satisfied with their returns from selling to a cash buyer. Several growers have volunteered the information lhat Ihey were pleased with their returns and we have had no kick from any who sold to us," Cook said. A few grocers were interview led and stated that they were satis-lied with the returns from the C. I & K. Produce company last year. ! Both Mr. Cook and Perry \Etllridgs expressed themselves as ready to quit the produce business if Ihe general opinion of the growers was that they were hurting the local market. "We got into the produce business here when the growers had practically no outlet for their perishable fruits. We have spent considerable lime and money in building up a good market and have worked with- and for the groovers in every possible way," Ethridge stated. The two cars of grapes loaded out I by the association here brought an average return of 13cents per has kid to the growers, according to J. T Worshani. This low price was due lo the fact that the cars could not be loaded out in one day and shipped - immediately, he said. 11 was not the intention of the DEMOCRAT to misrepresent the fleets in the story published' last week and we thought our source was authentic. .We have made a careful investigation this lime and verified every statement made. We regret the pceurrance and tender our apologies to the C. & E. Produce if they feel that our story reflected On their business. We are taking no part in the discussion of whether or not the marketing association should be given exclusive right-of-way in handling the fruit crop here, but simply giving the facts lo our Marriage licenses wi ing Ihe past week lo louples: Joseph F.

Worshani, is recovering from an attack of pneumonia. Riegel was criticized for rufmiiig in the wrong direction It was a costly error, but 'ihe. resiiits were o�(|" temporarily serious. Next month, next year it will be forgotten. Mure serious than the error committed by Reigel is the error committed by the citizens of this community-who are not helping in the development of this eorrimunity. They -are running away from the goal. Too often, like Riegel, they de not realize until loo late, but they are robbing their own town of and assistance they might give. Instead of pulling back they should 'about face and work for Ihe things that this community. needs, and must have, to.thrive; and prosper.
