A Committee to Eutler Investigat

At the city council a meeting
or so ago, Alderman Myerly pro
posed to beautify -Green Lawn
Cemetery .-d it was agreed a
com mitten be appointed to visit
Butler and see the work and
progress of the Cemetery Asso
ciation of that town.
The committee appointed con
sisted of City Clerk J. Ed Jones,
Aldermen W. C. Stenebraker
and W. G. Myerly, and Mes
dames W. C. Stonebraker, C. W.
Orris and Steve Hammack. They
went Friday noon and were the
guests of Mayor Owens and a
committee of ladies. They were
driven to Oak Hill Cemetery and
shown the great work that had
been done. The cemetery is sit
uated on an elevated tract of
land, sloping to the four direc
tions, and the road leading to it
is macadamized as well as the
driveways in the cemetery. The
trees ate all well trimmed and
the grass well mowed, a superin
tendent beizg paid to do nothing
but look after this work.
They weie then taken to Ho
tel Pinnell, where the president
and other officers of the associa
tion read their rules and by-laws,
certificute of incorporation and
other papers pertaining to the or
ganization. They were enter
tained royally the balance of the
evening, and returned on ,; the

The Funeral of a Town.
The following from the Butler
Times might also be a word of
warning to this town:
"The town whose citizens re
fuse to assist in attracting new
enterprises and who fail or re
fuse to contribute to an enter
prise which w ill add to the com
mercial advantages of tho town
is on the way to tho cemetery.
The citizen who will do nothing
forth town is digging the grave.
The man who curses the town

thoflm-ud. Tlu man who willinamea and tlioe favoring the
not advertise and by refusing to;
back from any public enterprise
and pouring cold water on them,
throws boiuets on the grave.
The man who is ao stingy as to
be continually howling hard
times, preaches the funeral ser
mon and sings tho doxology and
then the town is buried from all
care and sorrow.

Dogs Not to Be Taxed.
Pursuant to previous notice,
the county court listened Mon
day to petitions for and against
the taxing of dogs for the benefit
i of sheep raisers who might lose
sheep from the depredations of
dogs. Considerable interest had
been awakened over the county
and a large number of farmers
and stockmen were present
when court opened. Tho court
decided to let the petitions settle
the matter, and as those who
were opposed to the measure
had decidedly the best f :he ar
