Kahn LOVE'S LARIAT " - pur.cl 'The man who named this town i n t Coma hit it just right," said the briki, owner of the "general store" in a and c Western settlement; its main street the y amounting to little more than a trail Gold through the prairies with a few W shacks scattered along either side. Gran Once a month the town took on thern every evidence of real life-indeed city the excitement ran to sensational fron lengths before the last cattle man sad: Pad filled his skin with "red liiu(;r" Mplac andl turned his faithful horse's head wth toward the open country. plati That one day and memoirab!' night 1 happened when Diamond A Ranch che paid off its cow-boys. Otherwise and th'o little town of C,,ma slept un~'s- a to l turbed through the other days of A the month. But the ranch pay-day furt I meant so much to the storekeeper and rea the half-dozen bars and gamnbl:ng line houses, that the owners thereof were iD willing to wait a month at a t:nie to the Scorrall the pay of the cattlemen and and still declare a go0,d sized proufit on thO the year. Care-free, reckless, happy and in hal some instances dissolute anr. incor- TL rigable, the cattlemen answered only to their own laws and set their own standards of conduct, gauged gener ally upon the capacity of the indivi- ma dual to hide away the most of liquor. e Of the rugged host "Sky Hligh" was fe the most reckless, playful and care- ace free. rig hs. Everybody had a"nick name" and Edward K. Landers had answered to wo the name of "Sky High" for so many fu! years that he had almost forgotten ref that he ever owned any other. B~ut his family name was reca!!lled to him wh one dlay in an extao,rdinary .nd un-.. the e::pected manner. in "Sky High" recei"'ed a telegram., that is to say, the telegranm wa-. arldressed to E:lwar:d K. I,.nders, and , "Sky High" finally figured out that ,.i Shis own regular namrne matchd t:o t writing on the Western Union envc- sor I pe. But just at the moment of its; receipt and acceptance "Sky H(i4h'i i r . was to bury too opcn it. With a bunch of his fellow cat!e- I men he was busily engaged in pulling n. "Skeeter" Milligan d.own from the water wagon. "Skeeter" was "Sky High's" special pal, and it grieved " "Sky" to realizo that here was a . monthly pay-day being utterly wast.td :tp by "Skeeter" in total abstinence from th ,at red liquor. fir er During the process of restoring 3a "Skeeter" to a state of convivality, 'f t : telegram was forgotten, butr 1 when the session began to slacken in .r the middle it was "Skeeter" who'f a sugge.ced that "Sky H.gh" had be Ie- better take a look at the dispatch. 1K ng "Better see what's happening to at you, 'Sky,'" said "skeeter." "That c f, telespatch may be your death war iP' rant." s Then "Sky"' tore open the enve Lnd lope and read: he "Your uncle died in New York and t r.d left you his millions on ccnliti',ns h v that you shall live for one year inI -m the manision on Fifth Avenue and1 'st manage the estate. Five hundred om idollars at express oflce. Come im-t! Smediately." I ed When "Sky" recovered from the h •y shock he examined the telegram care rict fully noted the signature of his A Uncla's lawyer and then started fort the express otfce. There he found ,. confrmatiin of the dispatch in the Lr.i form of crisp, new green-backs to r of the amount of $500. t ich Corna, on masse, stepped up to the this bar and had many drinks. Tle two score inhabitants of the town, plus S"Sky High's" *ompanions, liquid aled the first installment of the for tune during the time "Sky's" tele gram fr more money was in transit. The telegraph company paid "Sky" con- his second installment the next day ourt, and then the boys of Diamand A &pril Ranch went into convention They ma.e "Skeeter" chairman and it mery was decided that "Sky" could not Sleave Coma unless he took the whole bunch with him. As the motion was made by "Sky" himself, it was car ried with a whoop-and confirming in copious libations. While these events were trans piring Allen Landers was busy in i con-. New York planning, with Goldie Le 1 term Croix, the music hall star, to scheme frt. to "Sky High" out of his inheritance. 1 1917: Allen was "Sky's" cousin, and would i be the beneficiary under the will un Sless "Sity" entirely fulfiled the con ditions. "Goidie, old dear," said Allen, "if you'll help me with my plans we'll Swin the fortune and have millions at ry, Jr. our disposal." "Well you can trust me to play the game, if there's anything like Smillions tobe had," said Goldie. And then the young man disclosed his 1~lot" "You are to make love to the cow puncher, make him propose to you ani then jilt him. His heart will be broken. he will sicken of New York and go back to the ranch long before. the year is ever,'" aid Alltn. And Goldie agreed. When Allen met "Sky" ^t the Grand Central Station in Ner'.,York, there was a surprise in store for the city chap. Ti;e cattiemen tu:,'.·'d from the train, loaded with their salles, schays and equipments. In place of one man, there were seven. with Sky" lealing them down the platform towards the exit gates. "Howdy, boy. said "Skyv. in cherry tone<. "Thes.' are ry-,y .l and we hiave come to give New Y, :1. a touch of high life." Alen smile!,l .ni sa,! rth!!n further than to greet his rough and ready cousin with hypocritical friend liness. During the rile up Fifth Avenue I the boys sat silent, ,open m,,athed and wondering. W'hen they reaehth the steps le:,ing: to the b..autifi I nmansin they were to occuily they halted in suspicious bewi'lerment. They could no,t believe their cyes. And when they were shown :h1ir rooms they found the wnie:ful beds with bouncing sprins Sar.,! itn maceuh:J, linen more than they could enaure. To give themselves the ef I feet of har I earth which they were accustomed to sleeping the boys riggel their siddles under their h.'eads and slept on the ifoor. During the days that folowed the wolly Westerners did their beust to fu!i'll their promise--bat New York refused to respond to their touch of high life. The only person in town who really paid mc:h attentin to them werethen were the police and the maid in the Landers manison. The maid was nearly frightened - out of her seven senses the first mjorring the boys were in town. Led i,y "Sky" th gang descended from th'eir sleeping rooms to forage for Borme liquor-and the mriid thought the:" were a ,barnd of burglars. The first tir.me the boys ventured forth to !apply the touch of high life to the ol 1 town, the police gathered them :n. Lined up against the wel:l in the p .lie .station, "Sky" found them. ! lo, oke.i them over and made them Sprcem;se to do all their drir.king at I the Landers mansion. Then he bailed n 'then out and the next day paid their t; ines. " Allen Landers had, meantime, in ";troduced Goldie Le Croix to "Sky" hew i and that fact was alone responsible Sfor "Sky" being at home. instead of i being out with the boys the da:; the police cut short their escapade. lift One of the first things .-i:y" did tw was to learn how to get into evening t clothes and vet out again. And when Goldie very slyly indicated to "Sky" that he looked pretty good to her in evening clothes "Sky" wore his firiery dto breakfast, and lounged around Shome all day in evening clothes and of n was ready to meet Goldie any moo d ment Allen brought her around. ed Goidie had won "Sky" right from n the start.

Mr. Nicols had been in failing health for a year or more and his death, though a shock to a large circle of friends was not unexpected. Mr. Nicols has spent most of his life in this parish and has been a valuable citizen. He leaves a wife, two sons and a daughter. The re mains were laid to rest in the City Cemetary, Vicksburg. Mr. Joseph N. Schregleman, one of the progressive planters and stock raisers of the Third ward of this parish has just returned from Lex ington, Kentucky. where he attended the winter sale.

Bourbon Hemp is a bay, d combination stallion six years old, ie sixteen hands high and weighs 1200 pounds. Mr. Schregleman's intenticn is to use this fine animal t, rase the standard of his own stock and will also make him available for his n- neighbors who desire to improve n their sa dle and driving stock. ic The horse has not yet arrived, but will be shipped by express to Vicks -, burg and brought to Mr. Schregle man's place by road. CHAR8ON VACCINATION Due to the prevalence of charbon un infection in various sections of the - of State, this Board earnestly advise; B In early inoculation, or vaccination, this it season on the part of the live stock w at owners in order to anticipate any ot ut-breaks of this disease and for v ay the purpose of having their stock " XL protected in ample time before the0 jj. advent of warm weather, which is i Sd charbon season. ' be Past experience has demonstrated a that best results are obtained when o animals are vaccinated against char- < a bon early in the spring so as to allow i . a sufficient time, in which to secure I pat protection, before the season ap' i proaches, when charbon infection d usually develops. The State Live Stock Sanita-y it Ford THE UNIVERSAL 2AR 320,817 Have been built and actually delivered to retail buyers since August 1st, 1916. These figures-32,817-represent the actual number of cars mahu factuted by us since August 1st, 1916, and delivered by our agents to retail buyers. This unusual fall and winter demand for Ford cars makes it necessary for us to confine the distribution of cars only to those agents who have orders for immediate delivery to retail customers, rather than to permit any agent to stock cars in anticipati( n of later spring sales. We are issuing this notice to intending buyers that they may pro t c(t themselves against delay or disappointment in securing Ford cars. If, therefore, you are planning to purchase a Ford car, we advise you to place your order and take delivery now. Immediate orders will have prompt attention. S Delay in buying at this time may cause you to wait several months. J Enter your order today fir immediate delivery with oursanthornied Ford agemnt listed below and don't be disappointed later on.

Vicksburd, Miss. ,n I. . - Board strongly urges. therefore, that in those sections of the State in which charbon infection has been known to exist in previous years, vaccination of animals should be com menced not later than the early part of March. If stock owners will give this matter their careful attention, it will increase the number of protected animals at the beginning of the char bon season and materially limit the spread of the disease, should the coming summer prove favorable to the development of charbron in. fection.
