A BIG BUSINESS DEAL The Oldltnd Company Buys the Hugus Interests in Meeker The announcement last Monday morning that the Oldland Company and allied interests had bought the Hugus interests in Meeker, created something of a sensation. The transaction carries with it the finely appointed Hugus store busi ness, the Rank of Meeker, the Meek er Flour tnill and the large and well constructed Hugus Blook. People asked why did the Hugus company sell out? The answer is simple. James A. Rendle, who suc ceeded the late J. C. Davis as presi dent and general manager of the Hugus company, has wished to re tire for the past two years. In order to give his entire time to his own ex tensive business. None of the other big men of the company cared to as sume the responsibilities and hard work of the job; so it was resolved to close out the company business at ( fast as opportunity presented. The store and bank at Craig, and store at Axial, were disposed of some time ago. A good and growing business was being carried on at all points.' Wfiat induced Old lands to acquire the extensive Hugus plant at Meek er? Not a desire to monopolise the mercantile and banking business In Rio Rlauco county, but a desire to posses one of the largest and finest store buildings in state. The Oldland business has outgrown their present cramped and out-of date quarters. It was either build at the present very high prices for material and labor or acquire the Hugus property. The latter oppor tunity was embraced as the best busi ness proposition. The Oldlands expect and invite legitimate competition. Good Luck to all concerned. The Hun The following dispatch from Berlin, under date of March 14th, showa that the Hun is a Hun in his own country as well as in other lands: Jwo hundred and twenty men, alt workmen and not a single one in uns* form, with hands tied behind MieiV backs were stood up against a wall in l the court yard of Moablt prison yes terday afternoon and shot to death with machine guns. The military officer who witnessed the executions furnished the details. He said it was the first time the gov ernment had used machine guns to execute revolutionists, but would continue the practice in the future as the machine guna do the Job quicker than rifies and by firing Into the heap after the men fall Insures death to all prisoners and also the wounded do not have to be dug out and shot in dividually. In one convoy were three women with hands tied behind their backs linked to half-starved, white-faced boys and men who had been captured. Bome of the prlaouers walked about proud and defiant but many who seemed to expect to be shot as soon as they arrived at the prison. The women prisoners walked quietly along with eyes straight ahead, paying no attention to the fashionably dressed men and women i who rushed from the cafes and res taurants to gaze curiously at them. The government had won. Being charged with brutality, 1 Colonel • Reinhardt, Prussian wnr minister, declared the summary ex ecutions were necessary. The dispatches show that the < actions of the Hpartacean rebels were even more brutal. Meaars. T. D. Holland and Mike Schneider were on our boulevards for a brief time forepart of the week. Fred Gribhle, farmer, was in mid week looking for a hand or two in ; preparation for a big season’s work. Joe Clinard made a business trip to Rifie this week, and found the “going” anything but good.

There was a meeting of a commit tee at Mr. Zutnwalt’s house Wednes day evening, for the purpose of re modeling some of the High School yells and songs and also to compose some new ones. Mr. Zumwalt was nice enough to let. the students kick over the traces a little during the noon hour and a portion of the afternoon, in the study hall on St Patrick's Day. The boys amused themselves by decorating their persons with green crepe paper, small green hats wit It streamers of oilout colors surmounted . their heads; also gorgeous neckties of green crepe paper protruded from their coat fronts. It was a moderate celebration but nevertheless they enjoyed it. The Domestic Science class dinner ; mentioned last week, was given on St. Patrick's Day as promised.

The ! guests were: Mr. and Mrs. Stephen- ; son, guests of honor; Miss Brace, 1 Mrs. Harry Wear, Miss Anderson, and Misses Marie Hannon and j Winifred Marshall acted as host and hostess. They were dressed in green : and white, and the table was also decorated in green and white; a vase of fern surrounded hy small green shamrocks, formed the center piece. Everything went fine excepting the fact that the guests arrived before the host and hostess, making it necessary for them run about ten blocks at full speed in order to get there in time for dinner.
