When James Johnson, who had
been on a visit to his nephew, Robt.
Johnson, at Corvallis, Oregon, re
turned to Cherokee recently he
brought me a bottle of Spencer's
Dandruff Eradicator. Now Spen
cer is a barber and a friend of my
old partner ' of twentv-five years
ago, Bob Johnson, and he has been
reading the Democrat. The read
ing of it no doubt , induced him to
believe that there was something
the matter with my head and he
thought his preparation might do
it good. I have tried . it on my
head and it is all right. It didn't
only work on the dandruff, but as
soon as it was applied the other in-
. habitants all turned over on their
backs and were speedily overtaken.
Spencer's preparation is-, all right.

Tuesday forenoon saw the termi
nation of three or four days har
vesting at OAC in ths way of
threshing. Goodness only knows
how many times they made a
clean up, as the grain threshed
was in little "jags" of wheat, oats,
barley, rye and vetch. All of the
various grains and grasses thresh
ed were almost wholly1 in the way
of experiment and of no one thing
was their anv great quantity. , A
small patch of ground would be de
voted to a certain thing and : this
plot of earth would be carefully
measured and after the threshing
an estimate of the yield per acre
would be made in order to deter
mine the yield. Some of the wheat
went nearly bU bushels per acre
and we are informed that this was
on ground that had been rotated
first with clover, then corn r and
lastly with wheat.
What might have proved a ser
ious mishap was narrowly averted
Wednesday shortly alter noon. Wil
ham Dixon and wife drove up in !
buggy in front of the establishment
of J. M. Nolan & bon and Mr,
Dixon started to alight from the ve
hicle. Just as he was getting out,
the buggy horse, a trifle skittish by
the way, became frightened and
started to vacate the pfemises. Mr
Dixon then attempted to get back
into the buggy, but only succeeded
in falling across the dash board in
some way and was to ft degree
helpless. However, he got a grip
on one of the reins - and this drew
the animal onto the - sidewalk in
front of Jesse Spencer's barber shop.
Mr . Spencer sprang to the :L rescue
and managed to get a hold of the
animal s bit and it' was checked.
The whole affair happened in the
twinkling of an eye and was over
before one could think, and a lucky

Just on the stroke of eleven
o'clock Tuesday morning the fire
bell gave tongue to a notice that
something was doing. The depart
ment hustled to the scene of - the
supposed fire but found to at there
was nothing more serious than a
burning flue. The flue was at the
home of Z. H. Davis. It appears
that Mrs. Joseph Smith, of S ap
Creek, had called in the morning

trifle chilly in the parlor the folk
decided to start a fire. There had
not been a fire in this particular
room during the entire summer and

Sheriff Burnett "recently present
ed a bill to Lincoln county for ex
penses of keeping Fred Green while
the latter was awaiting his trial in
Lincoln county in July. Mr.
Green was here for a number of
months and the bill for his keep
amounted to $79.25. . This the
Lincoln county authorities cut down
to $63,75 and Sheriff Burnett says
he does not propose to accept it.
The statute makes plain what is to
be charged in such cases and $5
per week is allowed for board and
care where there is but one prisoner
as in certain ways it is. as much
trouble to look after one person as
after a number. Sheriff Burnett
declares that if , the whole sum is
rot forthcoming he will bring suit
against Lincoln county.
