State Line, Jan. 22nd. Pres. W
B. McGehee staled that the object
of the meeting was to discuss wheat
bins. McMurray brothers have
bin manufactured by G. M. Boll &
Co., Wichita, Kansas.
This bin was set up on their farm
and filled with wheat last summer,
T. H. McMurray explained the con
struction of this bin and showed th
(rood points of its mechanism. This
brought out a very interesting dis
cussion in which H. C. Matson, W
M. Shaw. Geo. B. Threlkeld and
others took part.
As the roads were heavy some of
us got in late and hd to adjourn ear

we decided to meet at 1 o'clock next
Friday, at State Line, and discuss
the subject thoroughly. All farm

about clover seed, but it was all cut
short for the want of time.

Night Rider Regalia.
Capt. Chas. B. Rogan, who has
been for many weeks on active duty
upon the scene of action of the Reel
foot disturbances, has an interesting
and significant collection of Night
Rider regalia. These relics, which
are expected to play a prominent
part in subsequent proceedings
against the Night Riders, consists
of five masks and two robes, and
were found by Privates Stuart, Wal-
den and Johnson of Capt. Rogan's
detachment, in an old tin bucket on
Nick's Towhead, an island in Reel
Capt. Rogan will turn them over
to Attorney General Caldwell for
use as indicated, lhese accoun
trements bear signs of having been
used and have been identified by
Frank Fehringer, the names of the
alleged owners not yet being given
out on account of their having not
yet been apprehended.
ihe robes are constructed very
much after the general fashion of
long overcoat, and show saddle marks
and other indications of having seen
service on horseback. The masks
completely cover the head, having
eye, nose and mouth holes, and con
tain tassels and crude artificial whis
kers. The openings at the mouths
show that the wearers were both
smokers and chewers of tobacco.
Capt. Rogan is especially elated
over the unearthing of this unusual
and gruesome paraphernalia, in view
of their great possible value in fu
ture prosecutions. One of the fea
tures of the recent Night Rider trial
was the-absence of like material, the
habit of the clan in burning their re
galia rendered it practically impos
sible to obtain incriminating articles
of this nature.
