TheCow By WALT MASON THE dairy cow's a thing of charm; she lifts the mortgage from the farm  and makes-a farmers lifimora sweet-and sets him down on easy street. Where'er the dairy cow is queen, a country prosperous is seen, and dairymen, in joyful ranks, are pack-' ing bullion in the banks. Why plug along the old say way,' producing -nutmegs, corn and hay, and putting up a bankrupt wail if one year's crop should chance to fail? There is a better method now-the dairy cow; this critter always earns her keep, and piles up richels while you sleep and pays the taxes and the rent; and " here along ' the Katey, gents, we have the climate and the feed, and all conditions dairies need. So let'tis, boost the Holstein cow which beats the old breech-loading plow; the Guernsey and the Jersey, too, as smooth as any cow in view. Let's talk up dairies, milk and cream, the safest money making scheme. EXPECT 800 TO ENROLL IN TE\CBERS COLLEGE Hammond, Northeastern President, Announces Addition of New Professors (Special to the Democrat) Tahlequah, Sept. 3.-An enrollment of 800 students is expected at the Northeastern State Teachers college at Ta/hlequah for this year, according to an announcement yesterday by M.

JEFFORDS THE brood sow is a useful beast; her offsprings " furnish welcome feasts.of toothsome meats fa-folks to eat, from spareribs baked ' to pickled feet. There is no better breakfast fare, for hobo or for millionaire, than bacon crisp or jui cy ham. Where farms are stocked with hens and cows, with pigs gal ore and big brood sows; where grow alfalfa, oats and corn, no mort gage long such farms adorn. Come seasons wet or seasons dry; such farm folks' will not apply for credit nor'a-job in town, because they shake the shiekels down each week from sale of creirh and eggs or big fat hens with yellow, legs, or country lard ait prices town, folks must're gard. So here's to cow and sow and ' hen, all winners for good farmer men. Who stakes his fortune on these three, a farmer prosperous will .be. Of them the sow will rank ace high, her motto is: Root hog or j die. local Consolidated Store Has New Bead G & E PRODUCE INCORPORATED FOR $10,000.00 Company Plans to Grow and Promote Growth of Fruit and Vegetables in County Opening Delayed a Week oh Account of Necessary Work to be Done at Plant 1 Gilbert is the New Manager The Local Consolidated Store For Tnext week. The Stilwell and Westville Chambers of Commerce are joining in good-will tours to Christie, Piney, Bunch and Watts next week to boost the Adair County Free Fair'which will be- held at Stilwell September 18-21. �A couple of good speakers will accompany the boosters to each place to explain the fair and ask the cooperation of the communities in putting it over. The boosters will go to Christie Tuesday night; Piney Wednesday night; Bunch Thursday night and Watts Friday night. ��� � . -� -----,. BURNETT PtfrSJN f&ORE J J. E, Burnett, who formerly operated the store now owned by Andrew Mol-son,, has opened new corporation as follows; C. J. Carson, president; Perry Etheridge, vice-president and J. J. Cook, secretary-treasurer and manager. It is the plan of the company to grow and /promote . the. growth of fruits atuLyegetable crops in this trade territory" so it will be possible to ship fresh vegetables in Btraight and mixed cars, according to Cook. The main vegetable cropB to be fostered by them are radishes, spinach, tomatoes, sweet corn, cucumbers, bell peppers, Irish and sweet potatoes, strawberries and others, ' They will handle seed potatoes, seeds and plants and fertilizer. The soil conditions in this county are ideal for the production of all classes of fruifts Jand . vegetables," Cook said. "There are fruit and vegetable centers both north and south of $ui? well and we have better soil and climatic conditions here than they have on ejther side of us,'.' v "Adair county is particularly adapted to only three kinds of industry: dairying, poultry, and fruits and vegetables. We are going to deyote our time and energy tq developing-, the frujt and vegetable phase of the farming in this county." Cook stated. "We are now shipping vegetables to near points both north and south of 'here Where their crops are already, gone. We get on the market almost as early as the hear southern points and a great deal earlier than northern poirits- and our productiori season is longer,'' Cook continued. The new company has some sound plans for kthe development of this phase of .agjifiulture.. which Will bf commenced at later dates. . ' MANY CASES DECIDED AT COURl^TERM SERE Docket is Almost Cleared For First Time in Many Months, Judge 3ays Almost all cases on the trial docket of the county court were disposed of at a terra held the first of the week.

Sh&d Braswell, Sid-. Pric�,-l*Mi*tt'.f o�ett�|,' m It was necessaiy to postpone th^ opening of the Stilwell Cheese Factorv until next Monday on.account of additional . work to be done at the plan^ and because definite milk routeB had 1 not been rrlppped out,, according to J. W. Gattn, manager of the local plant; "Wo will Btart Monday even if we are not entirely ready," Mr. Gann. said. "We hope to ffinish up before Monday and have every thing ready for the first run of cheese." C. E. Fortune, route man for the company, has been here during the past week looking out desirable routes and estimates that the plant will start with 5,090 pounds of milk Monday. ; "This is the largest estimate we have ever made at any of our plants but I believe we will make that and perhaps more. The hearty cooperation being shown by both the business men and the farmers is encouraging," Mr. Fortune said. Five tentative routes have been laid, out, and men selected for most of them; Ben Fields has moved to Marble City and will cover a route from there to Stilwell by way of Bunch. J. W. Holt will cover a route that runs out by Horn and by the Frank Strauss' farm. Mr. Ferrell of Titantic will covit a route from there to Stilwell by the way of Wauhillau and July Springs. A man had not been selected late Thursday, for the Piney-Evansvule route but two men had already looked r tvti and a decision will be made ->'&Jay,' Bart Vick will:'*'av�.'toe West-  villc-Summers rouw . v Mr.. Fortune stated thai- later on they hoped to establish sub routes, these loutes operate where it is impossible for the big trucks to get over the roads. Arrangements are made with a farmer who lives the fartherest out to bring his milk to the road and pick up other milk on the way. The factory will Btart by paying 46 cents per pound for butterfat and charging the farmers 25c per hundred for hauling the milk in to the plant The whey will be returned free of charge. "Many people have the wrong idea about the whey," Mr Fortune said. "Northern people say that the whey .has as much food value as skimmed milk. It can be fed to hogs and calves with,a.prepared food added when fed to calves. Whey has a 6 percent solid food value." Mr. Fortune urged the farmers to take the very best care of the milk to keep it sweet until'it is delivered to the plant. If it is kept this way the cream stays in the milk' .better and gives a higher test and makes better 'CheeseY "The plant here has th� best prospects of any we have opened up yet," Fortune said. "First this is an ideal-dairy country. You have plenty -of; range and plenty of water. Second, the roads are such that they can be covered any time in the year." :. . .;- . �;-.,-8---.- Mr. tnd Mrs. James Powell > of Norman'are the guests of the latter'a father, W. C.
