Adair County Democrat (Newspaper) - March 1, 1929, Stilwell, Oklahoma Aft air (tomttj B^morrat VI)Alii COUNTY'S LEADING NEWSPAPER By Arthor BAbane A BRAVE MAN DEAD. INHERITED GENEROSITY HUMAN SACRIFICES USEFUL WARNINGS. Those thai pity themselves because their health is "not quite what it ought to be" niay consider Baron von Huencfcld, who died on the operating table, undergoing his thirteenth operation for an incurable disease of (he stomach that had afflicted him for years. STILWELL, OKLAHOMA, FRIDAY, MARCH 1,1929. NUMBER 4. Suffering hopelessly, knowing that he could not livelong and'must endure many operations, von Huenefcld planned and carried out the Gerjnan-Irish flight across (he Allan lie Ocean. Such courage and will power houhl make others ashamed to com plain. .1. Picrpont Morgan, gives New "York Hospital two buildings worth $2,000,000. (living seems to be in-lieriled, as illustrated also in the case ol the Rockefellers. Mr. Morgan's, father gave to Xew Yovk one >f its finest institutions, a great lying-in hospital. BILL RAISES IRE OF WESTVILLE RECORD EDITOR Scoring Calls Bill to Abolish Wcst-ville County Court "Foolish, JMr-t.y, Uncalled for Legislation^" NIGHT SCHOOL POSTPONED Serious rioting in India is caused by a report that Mohammedans kidnapped Hindu children and sacrificed then) in connection with construction of a new bridge. The report probably is not true. Once important works were usually accompanied by human sacrifices. Somebody was killed and bur :ed under the corner of a new build ing. A child or adult was often killed and buried in a shallow hole in a field newly 'planted. Knowing nothing about fertilizers, they observed with "religious awe" that the grass grew greener where the corpse was buried." " "~" "* ..... Madame Bella Pollack, died in Rumania, aged 118, leaving twenty-one children, the oldest eighty-five, and a fiance who would have been her third husband. Madame Pollack ate two and one-half pounds of black bread and a pound of sugar every day, and was never ill until her last illness. Men often live long when the doctor tells them that they will soon die. A warning makes them careful. James Melrose, twice Lord Mayor of York, England, aged one hundred, is dead. Insurance, company refused him as a bad risk sev-enty-fivc years ago. The famous Liugi Cornaro became interested in his health when doctors told him at forty that he must soon die. He ate only twelve ounces of food, drank fifteen ounces of red wine daily, died at one hundred and four. A bill has passed the House of Representatives to abolish the branch of the County Court at West, villc. ' Jn commenting on the bill, Dean Sebring, editor of the Westvillc Record, called it a "very foolish, dirty uncalled for piece of legislation," and laid the blame for it entirely on the people of this end of the county. As a matter of fact, upon investigation, we find that a man who lives in their end of the county circulated a petition and to Representative John Bunch Asking that such a bill be introduced into the bouse. The people of this end of the coun ty have no kick to raise about the branch of the county court being kept at Westvillc outside of the fact that it is very expensive and of prac tically no benefit. The people of the south end of the county do not blame the people of Wesville for attempting to keep this last semblance of a mighty struggle to be the cap-itol city of the county, but from comments and interviews, they seem to object lo being called "dirty, sneaking, undercover workers" by the northenders, when a man in their own country betrays them. "Taking into consideration the fact that the county seat is located at Stilwell, less money has been siient south of the Mason Dixon line than north of' it in the last two years," remarKed 6nc~SlflweIl man who is prominent in politics. By the "Mason-Dixon line" he meant Baron Fork creek. Another man commented on the question by saying: "If this is a dirty, underhanded trick, then we have sat idly by and had many limes more than that put over us during the past two years-and we have raised no bowl whatever. But the funny part of this is that the people of the south end had nothing to do with it." Mighty unfortunate thing that this came up. About time to drop this feud and work for the benefit of the county as a whole. Let's wipe out the "Mason-Dixon line" and make it one bigger and better Adah-county .But this much might be added-If the Northenders want to scrap they know what the Southern ers can do. The night school in dairying that was started by A. M. Calloway at the Maryctta school house has been discontinued during the Ijad weather. "It is almost impossible for anyone to get to the school house while the roads are in the present condition," Calloway said. He expects to continue the classes as soon as possible. 'We were having good attendance and the ljeople seemed to be interested in (be work," be said. ADAIR COUNTY STUDENT ON THE A. AND M. HONOR ROLL STILWELL BOY GETS PROMOTE! B. E.

SHARKEY WINS BY A DECISION (0,000 People See Bout at Miami Beach, Florida, Wednesday Night. Coming back with telling -blows in the midway of the bout, Jack Sharkey, Boston sailor, won the referee's decision over W. L. "Young" Stribling of Macon, Ga., at the end of 10 rounds of tame fighting at Mi-;mih Beach, Fla., Wednesday night. There were no knockdowns, but on two occasions the pride of the southland- rocked Sharkey with slinging blows aiid neary floored him. The first clout was in the 4th round and the other came in the eighth when Stribling had Sharkey on the run.

Funeral services were held at the home at 2:30 and burial was made in the New Hope cemetery Saturday afternoon. Rev. Chas. II. Cole of the Methodist church conducted the funeral services.

Mr. Allison was an old and respected citizen of Adair county and his death leaves many sad hearts in the community. -- --- . A Commercial Club for Stilwell! After numerous requests by property owners and business men who are renting buildings along main street, and after being .presented with a petition bearing the names of several property owners, the Board of Trustees voted a paving-resolution at a call meeting. Wednesday afternoon. The Board voted a similar resolution last spring but it was petitioned down. People who Were interested in getting the main street paved believe that more of the property owners are now in favor of the paving and have prevailed on the council to pass this resolution. This resolution simply puts the matter in the hands of the property owners, the board said in commenting on the resolution. It gives them a chance to go ahead and pave if they want to, or petition it out if they '.'.ill do not favor paving. Several of the property owners havL. stated in interviews with the Democrat reporter that Iheytavoredj the paving and hoped that at least the main street could be paved this year. Some of the men who are renting the buildings have- even said that they would be willing to voluntarily raise their rent enough to lake care of the paving tax, which would be levied only on business houses which fronted on the pave ment. An. analysis showed that a major il.y of" the houses on the main street are occupied by business men who do not own the buildings. '. The time of year and the condition of busi ncss should not affect the paving since the rent goes on for the prop erty owners the same at all times of the year and as long as they are able to keep the buildings rented. There are very few vacant buildings in towm right now and the general opinion is that there would be fewer if the main street were paved. ---S--7- STILWELL Ten Years Ago This Week Taken from the Files of the STANDARD-SENTINEL Trent-Mallon. 1 The marriage of Miss OIlie Trent' and Mr. Thomas F.
