amount of money has been drained
out of the interior of the state and

WHEN CHEHAWA PLAYS'
College Lads Will Have to Hustle
Big Game Next Saturday.
Next Saturday is programmed
for a football game on O. A. C.
field in which Steckle's men will go
aeainst Chemawa. --v The latter
team is strong with veteran war
riors like Reuben Saunders in the
lineup. Saunders is one of the
fiercest players that ever dived into
a scrimmage, and interest is al
ready keen locally over the ques
tion of what he can do to the new
O. A. C. forwards. Some say his
rushes will penetrate it, and others
that Sanders is not man enough to
drive his way through the sturdy
college lads who make up the
heavy O. A. C. line. Besides San
ders and his spectacular playing,
there are other men of spirit and
strength in the Chemawa line-up
and a mighty interesting game is
expected. By that time, the line
up of the home lads will be more
systematized, and some of the
lightning dash that characterized
the team last season,- may be ex
pected to be seen in their onslaught
on the Chemawa lads. In any
event, the game will give every
body a line on the new eleven, and
for that reason, as well as for the
expectation that the Indians will put
up a whirlwind game, the kickoff is
looked forward to with much antic
ipation, and a big crowd is expect
ed to be present.
Wheat advanced in the local
market Monday from: 61 to 62
cents. A firmer market in the
East and a better demand for flour
in the Orient is ascribed as the rea
son for the rise.

nothing but fit glasses. Been at it
exclusively for over 18 years. A
man cannot be good at everything,
but Dr. Lowe is certainly a good
Good grass for the fall and
winter seems assured by the late
rains. Lower prices for hay and
better prices for livestock are likely
to be the sequel. Sheep are report
ed advancing in price with sales of
stock sheep at $3 and owners hold
ing for four.

Penalty and Interest Must" 1e Paid on
all Unpaid Taxes. Two Paid
There has been strenuous tax
paying at the sheriff's office for a
week past. Monday was the day
for unpaid taxes to become delin
quent and the day after which pen
alty and 10 per cent interest is add
ed. Last spring a large number
paid only half, leaving the other
half of their taxes to be paid this
fall. It was the rush to avoid the
penalty and interest that made
strenuous hours for the sheriff un
til the omce closed Mcnday on
what at that moment became the
delinquent roll. In spite"of repeat
ed notice and six months time,
considerable number failed to make
the final payment.
Two of the latter came in to settle
Tuesday. They thought penalty
and interest ought not to be added.
Sheriff Burnett , told them he had
no alternative but to collect both
penalty and interest, whereupon
each of the citizens- was . wroth,
They said one day of gTace ought
to be allowed, to which the sheriff
rejoined that if one day be given
more and more days and weeks if
not months of time would be want-i
ed,. and that he' could not , on any
account or for any body break the
law. : -
