Cooper's Store Entered by Thieves Sunday Night Over $300 Worth of Goods Carried Away. The festive burglar came out of his lair last Sunday night and immediately proceeded to get busy. For the second time with in the past year he paid an im promptu visit to J. M. Cooper's large and well-stocked dry goods store. He did not tell Mr. Cooper that he was coming, his call be ing unheralded and unannounced, hence no preparation had been made for his reception. It may have been extremely fortunate for Mr. Burglar that his visit was timed to take place on a dark and blustery night when the clouds hung heavy in the sky and the wind sobbed mournfully through the foliage of the trees. A broken pane of glass in the rear door of the store building showed that the burglar had reached inside and removed the cross-bar to the door and then pried open the door with an old ploughshare and a piece of bug gy spring. ' No self-respecting burglar would have thought of using such crude implements in a time-honored handicraft, and this fact will make it go very hard with him if he is caught. The goods taken consisted, so far as known at this writing, of 21 different bolts and pieces of bolts of costly taffetas, satins, and China and Japan silks, sev eral men's No. 34 coats, two or three fine suit cases and a lot of laiies' top and underskirts. The loss is estimated at from $300 to $400. There is no clue to the identity of the burglar or burglars who pulled off the job. Mr. Coooer has suffered se verely at the hands of ourglars within recent years. Apparently they have marked him for their own, and Mr. Cooper has decided to go into the burglar-baiting business as a matter of self-pres-ervatidn, and offers the following schedule of rewards for dealing with the knights of the 'jimmy': For every burglar scared .away from his store, $25 ; for every burglar wounded while attempt ingto enter his store, $50; for every burglar killed while in the act of breaking into or robbing his store, $100. If the burgling fraternity have any respect for their longevity if they don't want to furnish a corpse for a post mortem examination, we would a4vise them to give Bax ter Springs a wide berth, for our citizens are loaded for bear J High Winds. The high wind last Monday morning caused the destruction of some old sheds that have been an eyesore for a long time, but strange to say none of the. old wooden shacks of awnings suf fered to any extent, Too bad, indeed ! H. Glasener, southeast of town, sustained the loss of several fine peach trees. Mrs. W. H. Hornor's large silver maple which stood in front of her home on east Sheridan street, was blown down, much to the regret of its owner. Several peach trees on G. E. Rucker's place, east Sheridan, went down to rise no more. J. A. Smith, on the north end, lost two fine peach trees. Judd Watson, of the north end, is grieving over the . loss of several heavily-laden peacn trees. The peach trees at Cbas.' L. Smith's residence were threshed furiously by the wind and almost J. M.

The Baxter National Bank's casualties consisted of the loss of two canvas awnings and a broken plate glass window on the south side of the building. A large shade tree was blown down in Dr. Thompson's resi dence yard on north Military street. James Chew thought he would crct to chew some fine "peach cobbler " made from home-grown peaches this year, but the wind came, and his fine peach trees were destroyed, and Mr. Chew says he don't care nothing about peach pot pie nohow ! Remarkably Prolific Mr. O. H. Frazee. the restau rant and errocerv man, has called our attention .to an item in a northern paper which reads as follows : "W. J. Gillette, of Wisconsin, owner of Colantha IV. Johanna, the champion butter cow of the world, owns a cow that has just completed a thirty-day test, pro ducing 154 pounds of butter." This is 5 1-6 pounds of butter each day, and of Course that's iroing some! But Baxter Springs is no whit behind any other sec tion of country on earth when it comes to fecundity of produc tion ! H-m-m ! For instance : One of our farmers has a fe male mare that recently gave birth to a colt with two heads. While one of the heads was suck ing the old mare the other head was nipping the tender grass t'-iat grew near by. Thus the colt got double sustenance and is alive and well today if it has not died-from hypertrophy ! Again : The mines of Baxter Springs are the richest in the known world. . All previous rec ords, however, were broken last week when the Katy" mine struck a lead of ore that weighed out 3,674 pounds to the ton. And it is a common occurrence tor tne water in this section t measure three pints to the quart Airain: The second hand clothing stores keep their stocks replenished by cultivating the rasrweed. One old pair of over; alls planted in good soil has been known to yield three good suits of clothes, a plug hat and a bunch of side whiskers ! And only two or three days ago one of our farmers showed us a fine litter of bird dogs that he had just gathered from a dogwood tree, and it was pnjy the first crop this year!
