the big A. H. T. A. doings in
Baxter Springs, and it you are
not here you will miss a big time,
and a lot of wholesome enjoy
ment. There will be a lot of
contests of different kinds, and
there will be speech making,
parades, etc There will be a
big basket dinner in the p?rk,
and to top it all off, there is go
ing to be a lot of good fellowship
on hand everywhere in town. ,
The Anti Horse Thief Associ
ation is one of the most import
ant orders in the country. It not
only promotes good fellowship
and' brotherly love among its
members, but it is a power for
good, and law and order. In
counties where there are lots of
Antis, crime is scarce, and prop
erty is well protected. Crooks,
as a rule, give a community which
has a local a wide berth, and the
word is passed on to other crooks
to steer clear. '
Regular meetings are held by
the different locals, and views are
exchanged. If a suspicious cuss
moves into a neighborhood he is
investigated without knowing it,
and if he commits any overt act,
he is aoorehended by the Antis,
or at any rate, they lend their
assistance, and the local officers
are greatly assisted thereby.
The Antis are entitled to the
assistance of every good citizen,
and if you are not a member, you
should ioin. thereby snowing
that you are in favor of law and
order, and against crime and
