Commission Makes Contract With
Wichita Concern For Modern
Fire Fightiag Aparatns—
Will Arrive Soon.
Hereford hat plaqed herself in the
forefront of the smaller cities of the
state by the purchaae of a modern
fire fighting machine. It is a com-
bination hose and chemical motor
truck. The specifications call for
four cylinder motor, mounted on
substantial cha: sls.with wheels of the
artillery type, cushion tires. The
equipment consists of fire extinguish
ers, flexible buckets, axes, lanterns,
ladders, chemical tanks and hose,
capacity for 1000 feet of water hose,
place for as many as 10 or 12 men
on the running boards. The entire
outfit was built by the Wichita Falls
Motor Truck Company and is finish
ed it) good style and attractive man
ner. The truck was used recently
at the State Firemen's Convention
for exhibition purposes and Hereford
was given no little advertising as
class to buy a
modern fire motor 'triifck.
Thi Commission feels itself for
tunate in making the change to this
Repayment of $50 25
for 22 Maths, the new equipment
■ Itwsi the absolute property of
tip city. This stands against the
expense of $90 per month to main-
tain and keep up the old equipment
and eliminates the possible loss by
dsath of me or both of the fine
horses. The new motor is expected
to arrive at any time. Some ar-
rangements will be made at once for
& place to keep the outfit. The
Commission is hard at work on that

Spot Cash for Want Ads.
To avoid the necessary expense of
book-keeping and a lot of unneces-
sary "chasing" around on the first

number of small amounts for Local

has adopted that good Spot Cash
Rule for all such advertising. There-
fore, beginning with June 1, please
bring the cash with you when order-
ing Losal Readers or Want Ads.
It's less trouble; the ads will be run
for only the time paid for and there
will not be any "Duns" to annoy or

Curios to Canyon Normal.
The large collection of curios, for
a long time displayed in the show
wienie, at the Brand office, have
been shipped to'jhe Cap/onNoimal
to which institution^ this valuable
collection of old
toes has been d
lector, Robert El!
has been making
thirty years or mof
seen some of the rarest things
early civilisation of Texas and other
states, and even of other countries.
Besides a large collection of guns
and pistols* there may be seen in
this collection the "sewing bird," a
small instrument made in the form of
a bird, which was used to hold the
cloth for our great mothers while
they made the fine stitches in the
broad cloth of their husbands. Then
there is one of the first "threshing
machines" of the country, hand
made of hard hickory, known as a
"flail." Few young men of this
time ever, saw one. Among the
weapons of defense is a Sicilian dag-
ger, taken from some student during
the great uprising by the college
students in that country years ago.
It was brought to the United States
by Prof. Cori, for a number «>f years
r of ancient languages in
T^Us Christian University. While
in this country a warm, personal
friendship sprang up between Prof.
Cori and Mr. Elliott and on the for-
a departure for bis . rid home,
gave the dagger, which is eoa e/iM^
inches long with silver inlaid decora-
tions, to his American friend, a
few of the things in the list are:
flax spinning wheel, wooden shuttles
for the old hand made looms, Indian
rook corn mill, flint lock pistols and
guns, French dueling pistol, army
canteens and belts of the Civil War,
army guns of every period since
Washington's time, sabers and
swords, speer used by the natives of
Africa in killing the hypopotomus,
buffalo guns, a hundred other things
of interest. Two mementoes in the
cElection, while not now of much
value, will, in the course of years,
be a curiosity. They are simply
t to adobe bricks from the vault of
the first court house erected on the
Plains of Texas. Mr. Elliott hap-
pened to be at Dimmitt when the old
court house was being raised and he
promptly appropriated two well pre-
The Normal has built cases for
this collection and room has been
provided for additions. Any one
having old relics of the early days
of the Panhandle or Texas or any
other stats and wish to place them
where they will serve an educational
purpose, will confer a favor upon the
students of that school by communi-
cation with either President Cousins
of the Normal or with Mr. Elliott
whose office Is at Amarillo.
