What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

Mr. Voter, if that is a good proposition for the Ford Motor Co., and also for the two fami- lies that own and control the for- tunes of that corporation, on the the' same principle ought it not be a good proposition for you as a stockholder in Fergus county, a quasi municipal corporation, to vote for the road bond issue and finance your own company and let the benefits accrue to your family as member stockholders in corporation which means more to you than material wealth?

DEMAND THAT $15,000 IN GOLD BE PAID OR MEN WILL BE PUT TO DEATH HELD CLOSE TO THE BORDER Outlaw Band's Agent to Receive Money at Town on Rio Grande.—Chico Cano Believed to Be Leader Holding the Two Men aorta, Texas, Aug. TR.—Letters purporting to be from Lieutenants Patti IT. Davis and Harold G. Peter- son, American army aviators, missing since last Sunday, were received here yesterday at military headquarters. The letters stated that aviators were being held by bandits for $15,000 ran- som somewhere In Mexico and were threatened with death unless the ran let- ters. was paid, according to the let - The demand for the ransom was re- ceived here yesterday and report made at once to Major General Diek- man, commander of the southern de- partment. An unconfirmed report also was received that the aviators were being held close to the American border and that Chico Cano, a famous bandit of the Big Bend and Ojimtgo district, was the leader of the band that has the aviators. Dawkins Kilpatrick, of Candelaria, Texas, sent a message to the bandits late last night urging them to post- pone the time limit fixed in the de- mand for the payment of $1:1,000 ran- som until Wednesday because of the delay in receiving their demand at the border. A message from a former Villa fol- lower, now a member Of the bandit hand. was received at the border late yesterday threatening to kill the Amer- ican aviators if any evidence of mili- tary movements to search for the Americans were seen on the American side of the border. This message was addressed to Dawkins Kilpatrick, it was announced here. El Paso, Texas, Aug. 18.—In an official statement issued at military headquarters here last night and signed by Brig. Gen. James B. Erwin. district commander, it was announced that Niaj. .1. A. Walter, commander ef the areo unit at Fort Bliss, had re- ceived a message from Limits. Paul IL Davis and Harold G. Peters stating they had been captured by Mexicans and were being held for $15,000 ran- sotn. which must be paid by Aug. 18, according to the message. Arrangements were being made here last night to obtain $15,000 gold vole and send it to Marfa early totnorrow for the payment of the ransom. as it is feared the men will be killed by I be bandits unless the ransom Is paid. When it became known at For' Bliss tonight that the aviators were reported held by Mexican bandits, there was much discussion among army officers of the possibility of Ameri- can troops crossing the border in search of the bandits who were hold- ing the aviators prisoners. This was discredited by the higher officers for two reasons. The principal one ad- vaneed was that the Amerlean avia- tors would be killed if an expedition crossed in pursuit of the bandits. The other reason was that orders for ex- peditions to cross the border In the Big Bend district apply only to pur- suit of bandits who have stolen prop- erty off the American side and then only to follow a \hot trail.\ WARRANTS SWORN OUT FOR TWO SUGAR MEN Chicago Wholesalers Charged With Having Realized a Profit of 40 Per Cent on Sales Chicago, Aug.

It is the desire of the county commissioners, in case this meas- ure carries, to purchase all seed locally, if there be a sufficient supply in the county. County Clerk W. W. Wheaton is desirous of ascertaining as nearly as possible the amount of seed grain available in the county for fall and spring sowing. The proposition will be handled the same as in the spring of 1918, when the county clerk issued or- ders for all grain purchased. All persons having seed grain for sale are requested to list the same with the county clerk, stat- ing the kind of grain, number of bushels, where same is located and a definite price. All orders will be issued against this grain until the supply is exhausted. All persons desiring to avail themselves of this aid, in case the measure carries, will be re- quired to apply in person to the county clerk, as the commission- ers do not deem it advisable to cover the county in answer to ap- plications as heretofore. This • • -- Cream! action is taken in order to avoid discrepancies in descriptions of land, as was experienced last year. All applications will be checked with the records.
