They contribute largely by paying heavy taxes for its up-keep, and constantly This is made possible by bringing | donate. for charitable purposes. A reduction . of from $15.00 to $200.00 on various models of the new Ford has been announced by the Fletcher Motor company, local Ford dealers. The reduction, which became effective November 1, is the result of quantity production and newly developed manufacturing processes, according to announcement by the Ford Motor Co.

The Kirby Needle Factory at Baron perhaps ships products to more foreign p oints than any other factory in the state. ThiB plant is running full force and receives inquiries daily from most every country in the world. It-will pay you to visit the Kirby facory and let them show you just what they are doing and the big demand there is for their products.-Westviile Record. -_S_-- Sequoyah County Has Heavy Court Docket . The district court -docket at Salli-saw would indicate Sequoyah county has suffered an unusual number of thefts. Of 56 criminal cases. Involving 69 different defendants, six cbiokr-en stealing cases, and 12 larceny af live stock cases appear. The docket contains six murder cases and two manslaughter cases; five asault to kHl cases and two cases of assault with a dangerous weapon. In the first case tried- at -Sftlllspw Monday the jury returned a one year sentence against Hubert Rlddfe on - a � chicken stealing charge. This was followed In the next case by1 a five year sentence to Joe Crawler who ^ra� charged with taking three cows. In the first case up Tuesday tuko Washington, Joe Proctor and Jim Tfty-ior* tried together, drew two years eaeh on a hog stealing charge. Sentencing of defendants will be on the 16th, the day the docket closes here. Mrs. H. E; Beardsley left Thursday for several weeks visit with relatives In Shawnee, Oklahoma Oltjr and- Nor-xnan. (By the Editor) Our good .fffeadi Decn Scoring" of the Westviile Record, has the following to say in last week's issue: "Commissioner Waters, the man with a big "excess "mileage record and the man who builds all roads leading to JPrqctor, has also been doing qUlfe a lot of improving on the Chance road with several new culverts. With all the fussing, cussin' and popping oh done by some few who feel unfavored, Waters has made one of the best Com missioners our county has ever had and will continue to do what is right, regardless of what some few who have, tried to dictate, say or think. Charley is about as bullheaded as any one man you ever saw and when he thinks he is right he just about goes ahead." You know, there is an old saying about "If the shoe fits you, wear it," and a lot of Other things on the same line. Well, I don't know whether Dean meant that lor me or not, but this thing of inconsistency is a little hard to figure out; Seems but a short time ago that Westviile was up in the air about their poultry show-but they got it back. Then, here waB the affair of extending the corporate limits of the town- and'that is still pending. Perhaps a little taffy now and then will help get your point over better than facing the question and getting things because they are RIGHT and not because ol personal favors. Anyway you look at the matter you do see a great deal of the bullheaded attitude, we'll admit. But when bullr headedness blinds one to the best Interests of the people he serves^ then right and just may not always be the result. Understand, we have never done any thing more than give a' few. of the facts as we found- them-the rest is up to the people and H the taxpayers f?el like fusin' cusBin' and poppin'. off it is their business. ". Here's one thing I will say-A public official who means to do the right, thing will never he harmed by criticism or investigation of his actions. And that's that. ' ----8----�- .-' ..Rev. and .Mrs. J. M. Haygood, of the First Baptist church here, Rev John.B. Acorn, Richard Glory, and Rjp. A- Worthington of Westviile, are attending the Baptist general con vention 2t Shawnee this week. They will return today or tomorrow and the regular services will be. held at the Baptist church Sunday. They are always the first to be callsd upon Tor fiancial support, whether civic improvement or for acts of mercy. Therefore they should have fair play. A schpol teacher from one of our county schools came to Tahlequah last Christmas "with a committee," to purchase a bill of toys .and tree decorations, to the amount of $45 or $50. They looked over the stock In one or two stores, then of a sudden one of them said, "lets go to Muskogee, we carv save a few cents over there, and we'll get the ride." They,went and spent their money In another city, and another county. A week later one of the committee dropped Into another 6torc in Tahlequah, seeing some toys, and the price remarked "did you hava them here last week? - Those! same dolls we paid 10 cents each more for in Muskogee last week, I wish I had bought, here." A day or so ago this same school teacher' dropped into one of the stores and applied for & position' as clerk; as tlie scriobl where she was teaching was one of the many that is closing lri Cherokee county on account of the shortage of tax money. If all who work for salaries in this county would stop to �.-; thing they would soon see that if the money is continually spent away from home and out of the, county that a shortdgevls bound to follow. You cannot build the other cities ahd" Cherokee Countyv and at thesame . time ..have1 ^rJispeSfty. eit Tibbie. Had' all our county schools have purchased all of their Christmas goods as well as other goods at home for thr> past twenty years It Is doubtful if it would now be necessary to close e school. School money is not all that leaves our county. Any public official who orders goods or printed matter put side of the county when it *s possible to buy it, or have it made In Tahlequah is contributing to the In  evltable shortage of. money, and perhaps barikruptacy of the county. Evju if such things were 20 percent cheaper out side of the county, it is a losing proposition to spend the public money with outsiders as the entire amount Is gone, and lost forever. The money that lias been sent away for work in other counties and cities by the officials of Cherokee county in the past twenty years for prlntlug alone, would if it had been kept hers and paid to home printing plants have' Riven us a good dally paper, housed in a- building of three or four stories, long ago. Looking at a delinquent tax statement from the sheriff's office the other day, which was so plain and small, a ten year old boy could have set it- up- and run' It off on a little; hand press, If he'd been-around a print shop a week. I found in small print, so fine that the majority of people would" never notice It, "The Star Printery" Muskogee, Okla. At the same time we have a printing plant' in our city that has,been paying taxes to help pay the salaries of public officials for many years. The Star Printery'in Muskogee County does not help pay our local ^verhtneht expenses! they don't run over here and sayi "Boy's" we hoard so and so was burned; out in the south part of your city today, being, as weS'vo had .several1 thousand dollars worth of business from your city" and county within tho past year, we've come to give you tenj dollars to help out. If they ever have done It, we've never heard of it. If It's just thoughtlesnoss' on the part of the people who hold'office its high time they start to figure-in g and think of the loss of money. If for' any reason any official has a personal grievance against the home printing plant, that does not.give! him: license .to send the people's tax money, away from home, if there is any possible back with: the tax payers'. XI lieTddes' n�vV wish to spend his.own personal. Income with them, that Is an entirely different matter. If the people of Cherokee county want the merchants of Tahlequah to stay with the ship Its time they spend every dollar at home; so it can be spent again in your own community. And after all is said and done. I would like to ask! how many people ever stop to figure the depreciation on a car and the cost of gas to drive 75 miles just to do a little x'.jpping? If you will figure a littla you'll find all you have gained is a little fresh air. ; � -Cherokee Countly Democratic. PRICES REDUCED ON MAJESTIC RADIOS The Crescent Drug Store, local dealers for the MajeBtlc Radios, announce a reduction of $21.50 on their cabinet models 91 to 92, This reduction brings the price'to $116.00 and $146.00, less tubes according to Mr. Allison.
