WILL BUILD A FLAX MILL.
Provided farmers will agree to raise
two hundred acres of llax the Livings
ton Tlax Co., which is operating llax
mills at Yale, Croswcll, I'igeon and
other points north of here are ready to
start a mill at this place. Mr. Farley,
of Yale, was here Tuesday in the Inter
est of the company, and will be here
next week to work for the necessary
acreage. The company pays nine dol
lars per ton for llax cut with a binder,
and eleven dollars for pulled llax, de
livered at the mill. When the business
of growing llax was tried here some
years ago the great objection to the
crop was the labor of pulling, but as
this concern takes the crop when cut by
machine this objection is done away
with. Farmers who are interested are
requested to leave their names at
Kelsey's drug store and a representa
tive of the company will call on them.

MAKE HIM PAY GASH.
Here Is one way to keep home pat'
ronage from straying to the mail order
houses, as told by an Oklahoma editor:
"In ray town we have an organisa
tion that watches the mail order buyers
and an agreement not to extend credit
to a man that has patronized an out-of-town
house. Whenever we hear of a
man receiving a shipment from a mail
order house we immediately send him
a bill, if he owes, and Insist on pay
ment. Thereafter he must pay cash
for what ho gets. It has had a good
effect and brought many a man to his
senses. It is a fact that a great many

the habit of letting tho local merchant
