“The Girl Phillippa”

tion picture. It is a moving picture. It is at once

this appeal is common to all—to young and old, to
in and women, to boys and girls.

tut he was unable to give the engine

had left the card containing this infor-
mation at hoihe.

YOUNG PARKER COUNTY
GIRL DOING FARM WORK
Miss Joe Williams, aged about 18,
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Irby Wil-
liams, half mile south of Greenwood,
on account of her father’s sickness,
has made a full fledged farm hand this
year. She feeds the stock, looks af
ter the chickens, having seven hens
setting, and has broke thirty acres of
land, planted spring oats and is now
ready to plant corn. Mr. Williams has
been sick most ail the year, and as
labor is scarce, his daughter, who is a
grand daughter of Uncle Joe Smith,
took charge of the farm. She weighs
lees than 100 pounds, but has lots of
energy stored up in that little body
and has done the work without a mur-
mur, in fact she rather enjoys the
G. C. Crowell, who represents the
Watkins Medical Co. in this county,
was bitten by a mad dog at Garner
Tuesday, March 11, and left Saturday
afternoon for Austin to be treated at
the Pasteur Institute.
Mr. Crowell did not know, at the
time he was bitten, that the dog was
afflicted with hydrophobia. The same
dog was later discovered to be mad
and was killed Saturday. Mr. Crowell
then hastened to Austin for treatment,
it having at that time been four days
since the dog attacked him.
Another mad dog was killed in Wea-
therford Saturday afternoon after il
had bitten several other dogs. The
animal was a bird dog belonging to
Jim Norman* deputy sheriff, who came
near being bitten while playing with
the dog the day before it was killed.
The officers killed a number of dogs
in Weatherford Sunday in an effort
to prevent an epidemic here. All cit-
izens are advised by the officials to
watch their dogs carefully and to re
port any suspected of having been
bitten by any of the animals that have
been killed recently.

BURGLAR ATTEMPTS TO
ENTER WALDROM’S STORE
An entry into Waldrom’s store on
North Main street was attempted by
burglars Saturday night. The first ev-
idence of the attempt was found when
Mr. Waldrom. came down Sunday mor-
ning and tried to open the front door
of the store and found the big Yale
lock on the door broken. Evidently
an attempt had been made to pick the
lock or force something into it, for a
strong steel part of the lock had been
badly twisted. No further evidences
of the burglar’s efforts were found and
it is supposed that the appearance of
some one on the street prevented an

GET DRAFT DEFERRED
Through an order from the United
States Department of Agriculture,
Robert C. Withers, emergency demon-
stration agent for this county, has
called a meeting tonight to see what

Vivian Martin will be seen in Fran-
ces Hodgson Burnett’s novel, "The
Fair Barbarian," at the Princess to-
day. The story deals with an Amer-
ican girl who visits a small English
town—with the soothing effect of a
small-sized cyclone. How she wins
over the crusty English spinster aunt
with whom she lives, and manages to
bring, not only her own romance, but
those of several others, to a success-
ful climax, makes an exceptionally at-
tractive screen story.
