THE PIONEER LAND MAN
Around the border are myriads
of incandescent light which casts a
luster brighter than the Grament
for miles around and the man be

and m emigrated to other parts
where all men are created equal.

stenographers and other dignitar

personally directs the retinue that
has charge of the land in his per

- - A Better Garage
The new addition to the Mc
Williams auto garage was complet
ed Thursday morning. The addi
tion was built at a cost of over
$1,000, and it makes this one of
the best auto repair shops in the
west. It has a cement floor, a
pit, concrete bases for several
pieces of machinery, and is well
lighted and ventilated. The new
part of the garage will be used for
the increasing repair business of
that popular concern, while the
old building will be used for the
storage of the cars used in their
large livery business, as well as
for those of the regular patrons of
the establisment. They have also
installed a 287 gallon bowser gas
oline tank which is buried under
giound outside the building, and
the gas is pumped direct from the
storage tank to the cars, saving a
great deal in the cost of handling
it. A complete tire repairing
outfit has also been installed, en-

Artesian Water Here
A number of Liberal boosters
gathered at the office of J. W.
Baughman Saturday evening to
discuss the matter of drilling for
artesian water here. Expert well
drillers from the eastern part of
state were here to investigate the
matter, but no agreement between
them and local men was reached,
Artesian wells are coming closer
to us every day, and those districts
which have them are enjoying con
siderable prosperity now. It is
said that there were 500 visitors
in Richfield last week, and the
town there is on the boom. It is
much the same as other points
where they have drilled artesian
wells. If we are to retain the title
of "Capitol of the Southwest." it
will be up to us pretty soon to do
something along this line, and it
aepearsnow, that a definite step
towards securing a well will be
made in the near future. A letter
by J. W. Baughman follows:
Neosho Falls, Ks., Apr. 24, '11.
Mr. John Baughman,
I am anxious to get started to
drilling in your territory, therefore
will make you people the following
We will'drill a well to a depth
of 2,000 feet. The first 1,000 feet
for $2.00 per ft., and the balance
for $3.00 per ft. You to furnish
all necessary casing. If artesian
water is found at less than 1,000
feet, we are to be paid for 1,000
feet, and you guarantee us two
more wells within a radius of three
miles of town.
Let us hear from you by return
mail it possible.
The Christian Ladies' Missionary
Society will meet with Mrs. E. J.
Thayer at 3 p. m., next Wednes
day. May 3rd. The meeting will
be lead by Mrs. H.V.Tucker.
