Adair County Democrat (Newspaper) - July 12, 1929, Stilwell, Oklahoma KUaiorucfli society Don't Miss the Firemen's Picnic Here Next Friday and Saturday IThisWeekl %mammmmmuimmmjllt '  �* Adair Cntmtg Itemnrrat ADAIR COUNTY'S LEADING NEWSPAPER VOLUME NUMBER 32. STILWELL, OKLAHOMA, FRIDAY, JULY 12, 1929.. NUMBER 23 THE BOON OF SLEEP. EGG STATISTICS. WONDERFUL LANDS. [ EIGHT "BIG MEN." j If you have sound sleep, don't envy any man his millions. An American, very rich, knighted by King George because of the American money he spent in London, was taken to a hospital, suffering from insomnia. In the morning he was found dead, clutching a piece of paper on which he had written that, as sleep was impossible, he could endure life no longer. He had poisoned himself. NEARLY HALF MILLION IS ON DEPOSIT HERE Bank Deposits Reflect Prosperity of Community; Statements Show Up Well. ADAIR FARMERS MARKET A SIDELINE PROJECT A majority of us go through life, not appreciating our greatest blessings, especially the "Sleep that knits up the revell'd sleeve of care, The death of each day's life, sore labour's bath, Balm of hurt minds, great nature's second course, Chief nourisher in life's feast." Until sleep goes, you do not know life's greatest physical misfortune. Every year two thousand million American eggB are confided to hens and incubators. Every year 800,000,000 of them don't hatch. The Department of Agriculture owns one hen, laying eggs of which 90 percent hatch, and she transmits her qualities to daughters and grand daughters This Interests millions of women in the United States. Much lost possible wealth, at least $200,000,000, at 25 cents per chick. The government has thrown open to settlement government lands formerly covered by the Mississippi river. Wonderful lands these are, Jo w, level, deep, heavy black loam. . --i .......... As the "wind blqwest' where it list-eth," so the Mississippi flows where it lfeteth, covering and tfbcovdring - land, washing millions upflfi millions of- cubic yards of fertile soil into the Gulf of Mexico. When will man's intelligence control "Old Man River" and make hint an Obedient part of the national machine? President Hoover, whose business is engineering, will attend to that, was "cut out" for that job. It has been truly said that the bank deposits reflect accurately the prosper ity of a community. If this application be made to Stilwell and her trade territory, then we have no cause to be alarmed. According to the statements of the two banks, published in this issue, of the Democrat, there is on deposit here almost half a million dollars-$481,-702.81 to he exact. It is expected that the deposits will gradually increase from now until fall ae most of the crops are yet to be harvested. The large deposits here are due to the unselfish and untiring work of the bank officials in promoting farming that helps the patron keep a bank account. The banks are active in promoting truck farming, dairying and poultry raising and have many creditable and improved farms to show for their ef. forts, in addition to the bank deposits that are carried by the farmers of the community. Two farmers in, Adair-' county have selected one product to market in addition to the regular crops, says Harry B. Hayman, county agent of that county. One farmer is growing turnips. He expects $150 per acre for the turnips. He has contracted the greens to a firm for $45. One farmer harvested ten acres of Aroma strawberries. These berries produced a net return of $2100, or an average of $210 per:acre. HIGHWAY MEN WILL BE HERE PLANS MADE FOR A GREAT PICNIC Snodgrass Shows Will Be Here For Entire Week; Many Events Scheduled. T. P. Clonts, division highway engineer, Will Be Guest of Chamber of Commerce Monday Night. Much interest is being shown among the members of the Chamber of Commerce here and several new members are expected to be present at the meeting Monday night at 7:30 at the Com. mercial hotel. T. P. Clonts, division highway en gineer, will be present to discuss the roads ofthis section and what the highway commission expects to do here. Earl Smith, highway maintenance man will accompany Mr, Clonts here. There has been much favorable com ment this week form those who were present at the last meeting. A number of men in town could not attend last time but several of them have promised to Be present Monday night, PROBE, OF BRIBE CHARGE BY SOLON APPEARS DIM OKLAHOMA CITY, July 9.-The probability that, George M.

The Snodgrass shows will unload I NEW FISHINGLAW here Sunday and will be on the grounds all week to build up the picnic spirit for the final tow days when the grounds will be filled with all kinds of amusement and refreshment stands. A rodeo is being planned for,the two days and some arrangements will be made for music for the occasion, it is said. The town' and surrounding country has been posted with large circulars and several cars are equipped with tire covers proclaiming the gala event. HERE IS WHY � Here is a statement taken from a radio talk given by John H. Casey of the University of Oklahoma school of journalism. He is quoting the statement of the advertising manager of one of the country's largest mail order houses: "We have' a bureau whose, duty is to read each week, the country newspaperes from all over the land. This bureau lookB over these newspapers, and when we find a town where the merchants are not advertising in the local paper,.we immediately flood that territory with our literature. It always brings results far in. excess of the same effort put forth in territory where the local , merchants use their local papers."

The big eight and the Secretary of the Treasury will administer funds for farm relief, spending the people's money as intelligently as they know how. How can you tell a "big man" when you see him and how can you be sure that your big man understands farm problems? It would be interesting to put the eight big men, after they are chosen, in charge of some typical American farm to see what they could make of it. The president signs the Boulder Dam proclamation, thus making operative the Boulder Canyon Dam bilL And now, perhaps, the able engineer elected president will be able to do what he wants to do, some able engineering.

'.- About two years ago the two commissioners in this end of the county went in "Cahoots" and bought a huge tractor and grader at an approximate cost of $7500.00. Sometime along in May of this year they traded this outfit in on a new one. This time they got a smaller outfit at something like a cost of $5200.00. They received a credit allowance of $450 for the old tractor and $150 for the grader. The grader still stands at the west side of the court house. Now we understand that Barnett has bought one for just his district but can't say exactly about the cost. May find out a little later. - There are a lot of possibilities in this trade-in proposition. It may be true that the tractor was too heavy but they had been and still are using one like it in the north end of the county-and if you have occasion to drive up that way you can Bee- the results.. To say\he least of it, old tractors have a mighty small trade-in value in Adair- county. Take a look at the $150. grader on the west side of the court house and see what yon think it would bring for scrap iron. ..We hasten to state that, contrary to popular opinion this continued story in no way relates to the practices or customs of our esteemed -contemporary, the Editor cf the '-County Official Organ." He is a bustler and a fellow."
