The girls were unusually pretty and at

TO RAISING HOGS.
That Occupation Will Interest Beaver
County Farmers Now.
Kenton, O. T., May 2S. A number of
ranchers In the western part of Beaver
county are paying more attention this
spring to hog raising than In former
years. It is claimed by those who have
practiced it for some time that it will
eventually prove more profitable than
cattle raising. Hog cholera and similar
diseases seldom appear here because of
the free range allowed the animals, and
the only drawback discovered thus far
is the lack of corn with which to finish
them for market. This deficiency Is ob
viated by the ranchers by planting suffi
cient wheat, sugar beets, milo maize and
sugar cane, which have been found to
have great fat producing qualities, and
any of which grow readily on the soil
here. It is claimed that for the last few
years, at least, the hog market has re
mained more stationary than the cattlo
market and that the hog raiser can
count and depend upon a more certain in
come than the cattle, man.

BONDING COMPANY HIT
Failure to Meet Obligation
Would Kill Business.
Guthrie. O. T, May 2?- The failure ot
the Capital National and the suit filed
Wednesday afternoon against the Amerlr
can Bonding company or Baltimore for
$244,053. has revived an interest la tao
manner in which territorial depositor
are named, and the kind of wcurity
quired. A few years ago the CapltAl
National waa designated as a territorial
depository and was again so appointed bj

curitles. territorial warrants and sure
ty company bonds shall bo accepted aa

ney-Gcneral Robberts, however, held

the result was that the only kind of
security available for such banks was
surely bonds. It was necessary to ac
cept this or leave the deposits uncovered
and on May 1. 1903. the Capital National
bank executed surety bonds to the
amount of $350,0CO.
When P. C. Simons became attorney
general Sn. February, he reversed Rob
berts decision, holding that territorial
warrants could bo accepted as security
on territorial deposits. Since that tlmo
the territory has given the preference to
this class of security, and most of th-
deposits In the Guthrie National bank,
the Guthrie Savings bank, the Logan
county bank and the Bank of Commerce
are now covered with territorial war
rants, good municipal securities or gov
ernment bonds. Only a few thuosanct
dollars In all of these bnnks are secured
by. surety bonds.
In tho government offices at Washing
ton and throughout th country surety
bonds have always been considered an.
excellent security. Bonding companies
havo been given the preference In Ok4
lahonia and have "njoyed a lucrative
business. The territorial ofllclals aroj
