"Be careful boss!" said the young man
with haste. The older fellow looked up
aud saw the girl. "Beg your pardon,"
he answered, "I am sorry I said that

New Game. '
"Cowboy and Indian" is the name
of a new game orglnated by the youngs
ters in St. Rose Court and they have
most exciting times playing it nearly
every night after supper until bed time.
The cowboys have a leader and the
Indians a chif who choose the two
gangs, The crowd of cowboys hide
tkeir eye at a base while the Indians
'hide in awbusk. The Indians are
sought by the cowboys and when their
discovery is made they make a raid on
the latter. If an Indian catches n cow
boy before ho gets back to his base,
then ho has to go on the side with the
Indians. If the cowboys catch the
Indians, then the Indians have to hide
their eyes. The kids say Its a? nuch
fun as fox in-the-walnut.

About Deeds and Mortgages
How They are Recorded. All
Deeds Must be Recorded Be
fore Property can be Sold
What all Should Know.
READ FOR YOUR OWN GOOD
There seems to be an Idea among the
people that deeds and mortgages must
be recorded In a given length of time,
say thirty days after date of instrument.
At the request of a number of friends I
will give the law on the subject which
shown the importince of having all
deeds and mortgages recorded as soon
as executed. A deed or mortgage is a
written notice to the world of any
transaction made, and when recorded
is binding. A deed or mortgage un-i
recorded Is good only as between the.
grantor and grantee. It has become,
so apparent that deeds and mortgages
should be recorded that there Is now in,
the Statutes this law to-wit:
"All deeds and mortgages and other
instruments of writing which are re
quired by law to be recorded to be ef
fectual against purchaser without
notice, or creditor shall be recorded in
the clerk's office of the court of the
county In which the property is con
veyed, or the greater part thereof,
shall be. But It shall be unlawful for
any clerk or deputy clerk to admit to
record in such office any deed or con
veyance of any interest In real estate
equal to or greater than a life es'ato
unless such deed shall plainly specify
and refer to the next Immediate source
from which the grantor or grantee!
therein derive title to the said real
estate or the interest conveyed there
It goes farther and says if such a deed
or other recorded writing than the deed
offered for record shall refer to such
former deed or writing, and give the
office, book and page where recorded
and the date thereof if dated. It is
very plain by this that one can not sell
or transfer his property unless his deed
is recorded. There is never a week
that wt do not have this to contend
with Only this week a pentlemnn
came in and was sure his deed was re
corded. When he looked he found one
unrecorded deed. He then had to have
a new survey and a new deed made.
Both parties are living, so it was not
hard to get a new deed.
I can refer to some parties at Mc
Danlel who failed to have their deeds
recorded. In this case one of the
parties died and left infant heirs. There
is no way for a deed in this case to be
made without a suit to give a title and
then the court would have to make the
deed to same. Then atrain I could sell
you a farm today and make you a deed
and you could fall to record same If I
wanted to I could sell this to another
party and have his deed recorded, your
right, title and money is none. Of
course you could send me to the pen,
but that would not save your land.
In the last few weeks five or six men
have sent in four to seven deeds each.
Why is this? If we were handed a five
dollar note we would handle same and
put them in a place where we would
be certain not to lose them.
This matter demands the attention of
all thinking people. You should be
sure your titles are correct, and also
that all are recorded. This may save
you much trouble and litigation. The
same holds true with mortgages.
This office will be clad at any time to
furnish any information it has concern
ing instruments of writing that are con
nected witn the Clerk's office.
