Abney, of the Guaranty State Bank, is to the effect that he has gone to Camden, N. J., to compete in a shooting tournament with the National Guard rifle experts of the whole United States. It came about by reason of the fact that Mr. Abney has been with the National Guard encampment at Fort Sill for the past several days, and on Aug. 20th was placed in a two day's shooting contest with various members of the national guard. The record made in this contest was so favorable that he was selected to go to New Jersey to compete with the experts of the country in a big tournament soon to be held, and to be participated In by the National Guards from various states of the union. Fourteen members of the guard | from Fort Sill are making the trip I to New Jersey, and they anticipate that they will be gone about a ! week or ten days. In the competition at Fort Sill Mr. Abney was high man with 42 ; targets out of a possible 50, at 309 i yards. One of the tests was ten shots in seventy seconds, having to stop and ; load once during the ten shots. Mr. Abney got six bulls eyes in the ten and the other four were close. Mr. Abney’s friends here will be ; glad to learn of his reputation as a marksman, and will no doubt envy him his free trip to New' Jersey.

NOTHING RECEIVED BV PEACE C OUNCIL TO INDICATE RESIGNATION OF HUNGARIAN RULER. By th* Associated Press PARIS, Aug. 23.—Although it expects such news within a few days. the supreme council of the peace conference has not been advised of anything indicating the resignation of Archduke Joseph, as head of the Hungarian government. The reparations committee of the conference has drafted a note which the supreme council will probably send to Rumania im mediately, warning that government that reparations under German and Austrian treaties will be enttirely cut off if the Rumanians continue to make reauisitions, and that all requisitions already made will be deducted from Rumania’s share in Austrian indemnity. Rumanian soldiers still continue to sieze foodstuffs and farm machinery in Hungary. Mrs. Joe Cole has moved into the building that has just recently been remodeled by R. W. Simpson, located two doors east of the Liberty Theatre. The building is like a new one, freshly painted, new cement floor, modern glass front, and up-to-date electric fixtures. The interior wood work is finished in soft tones of French gray with the cabinets, dressing tables and chairs to harmonize. Mrs. Cole is showing by far the most up-to-date and newest line of millinery that has yet been on display in this city. The show windows would add grace to any millinery parlor in a city three times the size of Ada. On her display stands, Mrs. Cole is showing the general utility hat, the street hat, and the dress hat, but they are all smart, stylish creations of modern millinery. We do not believe in boosting a thing unless there is a boost coming. but we do believe in calling an ace an ace and a club a club.
