Adair County Democrat (Newspaper) - June 7, 1929, Stilwell, Oklahoma Ifhis Week] By Arthwtr Brisbane ROMAN'S COMMON SENSE MELLON QUOTES FRANKLIN BELLS TO PROTECT BIRDS THE KENTUCKY DERBY Naming a commission' to study law enforcement, President Hoover wisely includes one woman, Dr. Ada L. Corn-stock. Her experience as an educator will enable her to tell other members that the turn toward crime is taken in childhood. Furthermore, women's common-sense often enables them to take short cuts that men would not find. Mi Wm A J) AIR COUNTY'S LEADING NEWSPAPER VOLUME NUMBER 32. stilwell, Oklahoma, Friday,, june 7, 1929. NUMBER 18 LOCAL MAN SHIPS 615.000 BERRY PLANTS IN YEAR J. W. Auffett of Ideal Fruit Farm Has Been Shipping Berry Plants for 7 Years. Secretary Mellon will not resign. He himself is authority for that statement. That is good news, for' the whole country, particularly good news for President Hoover, who understands busines and knows what it means to.| have in the treasury the ablest business man in America. Mr. Mellon says, quoting Benjamin Franklin, "i. am deficient, i am afraid, in the Christian virtue of resignation." Virginia Hogan, twelveTyear-old Irish-American girl from Omaha, wins the National Spelling Bee. And, this will surprise you. Teru Hayashi, a Jap anese boy, was number four in the competition. "Panacea" eliminated him. $5,000 WORTH OF CITY. BONDS ARE RETIRED Trustees Plan to Take Up Other Blocks of Bonds As Fast.A^' They Are Located. President Hoover's commission on Prespority, outlining our gigantic resources, added that Americans had barely scratched the surface of national weath. As an efficiency engineer, President Hoover may suggest a way of cutting down waste. We make a gr^at fuss, as we should do, about ten billions lent to Europe, and we waste that amount every year. At Riverside, a suburb of Chicago, citizens like cats and birds that do not-like each other. A local ordinance now compels owners to put bells around their cats' necks to warn and protect birds. Cats Without bells will be execute*!. Those that like birds and cannot do without cats will adopt the idea elsewhere. If acquired characteristics can be inr herited, as undoubtedly they can, after some generations cats will steal up on the birds without ringing the bell until the final spring. The Kentucky Derby was won by a small racehorse named "Clyde Van Dusen" weighing only 835 pounds, called by reporters "an equine mouse." The equine mouse had "Man-O'-War" for a father, and from that father it got energy enabling it to kick mud into the faces of other horses for a mile and a quarter. J. W. Auffett of' the Ideal Fruit farm, five miles south of Stilwell, estimates that he has shipped 615,000 strawberry plants to almost every state in the union this season. Mr. Auffett started in 1922 with three varieties of plants. He advertised in the farm papers and in some of the larger weeklies and built up a thriving business in a short time. Each year he had calls for other varieties until now he lists eleven kinds of strawberry plants for his customers. Among the leading sellers are the Senator Dunlap, Aroma, Klondyke, and the Mastadon and Progressive Everbearing varieties. Besides the strawberry plants Mr. Auffett sells each year a number of tomato, cabbage, rhubarb and other small plants. He also has a stock of apple, peach and other fruit trees to supplement his berry plants . "Strawberry plants are my hobby," Mr. Auffett said* "andl devote most of my time to this phase of my work. It is necessary to grow other plants to supply my customers but I am spec* ializing on strawberries." He has built up a list of customers in Oklahoma and adjoining states that order each year because they are satisfied with the quality of the plants and the condition in which the plants arrive. "Strawberry plant growers must be situated in different parts of the country," he said, "because plants do not hold upwell for-long shipments." The Ideal Fruit farm has.supplied plantB^t^e:;ipj|stvs,e^rons-^--sey^allof the larger nurseries who have calls for them but are not located in the right place to grow them. Mr. Auffett says that a large part of his business is supplying the largr nurseries in wholesale quantities. " ' Stilwell .is receiving a" lot of worthwhile advertising: from the work Mr. Auffet is doing. He plans later to mail out a colored catalog and price list which will set forth some of the reas-. ons why Adair county is particularly adapted to growing strawberry plants. 55,000. worth of Stilwell City-Light and Water bonds were retired by the Board of Trustees last week and oth> ers will be bought as fast; as they can be located, according to H. ,T. Wil* Hams, city attorney. These bonds were bought at par and would not have fallen due until 1936. They draw 6 per cent interest and the sinking fund draws only 3 per cent. This one transaction represents a saving of $900.00 for the city in the difference in interest for the six years the bonds would have run. ------ � PRELIMINARY MEETING HELD AT WKTVILLE Fifteen Mended at Westville Monday Night And Draw Organization Plans.

A tentative constitution was adopted at the meeting which set fourth the objects of the association as follows: First:..*The purpose for which this association is formed is to bring about the rapid development of productive milk cows of good type and conformation of the Jersey breed.

SMITH ACCEPTS POSITION AT CAPITOL Basket of Klondyke Berries Grown on Ideal Fruit Farm Ray E. Smith, who has been engaged in the jewelry business for the past three years, left Wednesday night for Oklahoma City where he has accepted a position in the trade shop of a wholesale jewelry house. Watches and other pieces of jewel" ry that have been left with him for'repair and have not been called for have been left with George Curry, jewelry-man, who will return them to the owners when called for. Mr. Smith was a good workman and had made many friends in Stilwell.; Although sorry to see him leave, the good wishes of his friends go with him to his new work. This picture shows a basket of Klondyke strawberries grown by J. W. Auffett of the Ideal Fruit Farm, five miles south of Stilwell. This season Auffett shipped 416 crates of Aroma berries from five acres and 664 crates of Klondyke berries from 10 acres. He left lots of berries in the field because the price dropped too low and there was too much rain. From this total of 1080 crates Mr. Auffett estimates that he will net $1.00 per crate for the crop. He states that taking into consideration the weather and other factors, that most growers were able to ralize a nice profit this year and he predicts that many acres will be set in berries next spring. He believes that more aromas will be set than any other kind. Most of the advertising has been sold and the premium list prepared for the Adair County Free Fair Catalog which will be off the press about the middle of the inentfi. PUGH-BISHOP CHEV. CO.
