Adair County Democrat (Newspaper) - January 25, 1929, Stilwell, Oklahoma Agent after March 1st By Arthur Brisbane COWS AND MEN WHAT NAME FOR HOOVER? THE DUKE BROTHERS FARMERS IN JAPAN Mooscjaw, Saskatchewan,' gave a dinner to Ben H. Thomson in honor of his Holslcin-Friesian cow, Canary Cordyke. They both deserved. The Saskatchewan government bought the cow for $10,000.00. Canary is world's champion in butter fal and gives milk enough in a day to last the average family a month. In 305 days,, this wonder cow produced 1,080 pounds of butler and 26,396 pounds of milk. ADAIR COUNTY'S LEADING NEWSPAPER STILWELL, OKLAHOMA, FRIDAY, JANUARY 25, 1929. NUMBER 51. . SENATE VOTES TO JOHNSON ON IMPEACHMENT CHARGES ASKS FOR BIDS ON LIGHT PLANT Bids Will be Opened February 18, According to Notice Published Last* Week; Case Still Pending in Supreme Court. Too bad there is no, way of improving men's 'brains as we improve cows' udders. Only time can do that, and time is slow. The average intelligence in the British House of Commons today, according to Lecky, is lower than the average -of all the free men in Athens, 3,000 years ago. Science goes ahead, man stays about where he was, a little less brutal, a little less selfish. If Americans call president. Cool-idge "the silent Presidenf'what will they call Mr. Hoover? He has been elected president of the United States, will begin his work in less than two months, has been in Washington several days at work. How much has he talked? Not at all. Eight years more of business without conversation will suit this country very well. He have had, at various times, considerable period of conversation .without business. Sometimes farmers succeed, but usually they must leave the farm to do it. Benjamin N. Duke, who died yesterday morning in his Fifth avenue house in New York, began as a fanner, working with his brother. Jakes Duke, on their father's farm. They grew tobacco, started a small factory, introduced cigarette making machinery and made hundreds of millions. . And, farmers note this, (hey bossed the nyddle man instead of being bossed by him. Ask Mr. Hill of the American Tobacco company or Mr. Belt of Lorillard's how thai is done. American farmers have their troubles, farmers ifi Japan hove worse ones. When our farmers complain Government at least MAKES PROMISES. When thousands of Japanese peas ants inarched to express dissatisfaction, forty were-shot dead and many wounded. An intoxicated lady told the judge-her trouble was duo to an alcohol rub. She had swallowed nothing. Doctors said it was just possible, the judge excused her. A gentleman, very drunk, led in by the policeman, told the judge "My mistake was eating raisins while drinking ice cream, soda." They let him go. Prohibition developes new excuses. -.--- N. O. A. A.

The taxi rate in, the city Of Stilwell for this year is $5.52 on the hundred dollars. Last year 4he rate was\.$1.42 higher, or $6.94 per hundred. This means a saving of $7,811.73 to the taxpayers of thel city, since the valuation of the property is placed at $550,122/ It is not known "why) the levy was lower this year but some of the courthouse officials think that it is due to economy of the officials in placing the estimated needs for the year. The rate for Stilwell is; the highest in he county\ as shown by the tax rolls. This is> due to bonds for sewers and other improvements. -__-s.-_-.-_ ', STILWELL 4 Ten Years Ago This Week Taken from the Files of the STANDARD-SENTINEL * Congressman IW. W.

Hughes -was, elected chairman, Frank Howard vice-chairman and Harry B. Hayman secretary of the County Agricultural Advisory, 'Committee at its initial'" meeting "at Stilwellj Wednesday. In attendance at the meeting were 26 men from all sections of the coun ty. After listening to an outlinei of a proposed program.! for the county for the coming year, every man present voted to work toward the completion of that program. A committee to cover all phases of agriculture will be selected in seven community centers in the county. Each of these men will make a demonstration on his farm of that particular problem which he is studying and this example will be used as a demonstration for the farmers of that community. One of the most outstanding questions discussed was dairy development. Mr. Houston of the extension department stated that it was useless to bring good heifers and bulls into the county until the herds of the county had been examined by a vetinarian and declared free; from diseases. He gave many examples of dairyinn (building up good herds only to find that they would have to cull out most of them on account of tuberculosis or some other disease. In line with this phase of work Mr. Houston 'explained the 'cooperar tive bull association andtold of the advantages I of a good bull in a dairy herd. He stated that the first offspring from grade cows \yould show an average increase of 60 per cent in production of milk when good bulls were used. His explanation of the bull associations was so well taken by members present that the county agent was authorized to make a survey of the county to see if sonv; of these associations could not be formed. The four major topic discussed at the meeting were poultry, livestock, horticulture, and crops and soils. Those present at the meeting wero; Abe Allison; Mr. ^Lanier, C. L. iPullinm, J. D.

Dcilil, district sup-ervison in home demonstration extension work, announced at the meeting of the County Advisory Committee Wednesday that her department had decided to bear the full expense of placing a home demonstration agent in Adair county. She stated that a small surplus was found in their funds and that this surplus would be used for the purpose "of placing an agent in the counties where the valuation is low. The commissions of the county have not yet seen fit to match the extension money and have a demonstration agent in the county. The chief duty of the new worker will be to cooperate with the county agent in the 4-H club-work, and will be in charge of that work for the girls of the county. She will also form local women's organisations over the county and plans to merge them, all into a county fedc cration of women's clubs. This is a forward step for the county and will put the)women and girls on an equal footing with the men and boys in extension work. Miss Deihl said Wednesday that she expected to have the agent here by March 1. j HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES HAS VOTED SEVEN CHARGES AND SENT TO SENATE FOR CONSIDERATION HENRY S.

Free Throw by Curtis Gives Pirates Lead After Half, but Issue Stay.s in Doubt. STILWELL. Jan. 19.-In the clean est, hardest-fought game seen 'on the local court this season, Stilwell basketeers finally got ahead! of Che-cotah 9. to 8. Only three personal fouls were called during the entire session, two of the'in on Stilwell and the other on Checotah. The issue was constantly in doubt up until the last moment of play, although a free throw by Curtis gave Stilwell the lcqd early in the second half. Holt of Stilwell and Foshee of Checotah tied for high point honors with six points each. This was largely due, however, to the fact that both of them were "fed" shots by all the other members of their respective teams. By A. C. M.

T.| "Clark of Medfprd. A resolution which would have pledged the senate against suspension was introduced by Clark and Fletcer Johnson, democrat, of Bris-tow, before the impeachment charge reached the senate.; ; : Clark contended that the personal integrity of the governor jhad not been attached and that no harm would Ibe done by allowing him'to. continue in office. After the charges were received, Johnson pressed for consideration of the resolution, but his moti6n was brushed aside with; u substitute calling for accep* tance of the charges, which auto-: matically suspended the governor The vote on thb resolution of: senator Paul Stewart; democratic leader, to notify the governor of his; suspension, was 38 to (5.
