Garfield County – Mummy Nine Feet Tall

Enid Wave: A giant Scandinavian mummy, nine feet tall, is on exhibition in the building in the rear of Autrey’s store. It is a genuine article and most wonderfully to behold. The entertainment, outside of the giant, consists of one music by Prof. Harry Molt, one-armed man. His performance is equal to many of the noted violinists of the world who have arms. It’s a meritorious entertainment.

Guthrie Capital: Farmers throughout the territory are discussing the injury of the cotton crop by reason of recent dry weather. They agree that it’s due to the abundance of moisture during the early part of the season. If cotton takes root during dry weather, the taproot can go down as deep as three feet for moisture. If the ground gets moisture only a few inches below the surface, it cannot stand a drought later in the season
