Farmers Defend Hitch Rack. Neosho, Mo., Dec. 8. The remov al of the hitch racks around the New- , ton County Courthouse here several aays ago by tne order or tne city re sulted today in a near riot when fif teen wagons filled with farmers, each armed with a shotgun and spade, drove into Neosho. The farmers gathered up the dis carded racks from the city dump, and while half of the party stood guard, the other half set the posts back in place. City officials made no effort to interfere with the determined work of the farmers. The hitch rack question has caused disagreement between the Neosho authorities and farmers for weeks. The ownership of the ground on which the racjts stood was contested by city and county. Furthermore, the farmers contended that "the au- jtomobile owners of the town had no j right to condemn the serviceable old i hitch rack to the nuisance class. Dr. H. M. Cannon, Judge J. F.

The alluvial deposit which covers the walnut log could not possibly, have been formed less titan 500 years ago, and it might easily go back twice that far.
