Aliens and Rum
El Paso, Texas: Aliens and liquor are being smuggled here at Uncle Sam’s “Back Door.’ Rum runners are making it easy for foreigners denied legal entry to steal across the border without going through passport formalities.

But the foreigners must pay for the privilege. They have to pack the bootleggers’ hooch along with them. Every night scores of aliens, staggering under the weight of the liquor, can be seen wading the Rio Grande. ..

Pioneer Woman Hears Last Call
MRS. MARY SCHERMERHORN is dead in McAlester according to news sent from that city. She was the widow of Rev. SCHERMERHORN and the mother of J. B. SCHERMERHORN of Chicago. She was bon in Watertown, New York March 9, 1839. On June 18, 1862, she married H. R. SCHERMERHORN who was then a Presbyterian missionary among the Choctaw Indians. She joined her husband in his work and became matron of Spencer Academy where he was superintendent.

The Choctaws adopted Rev. Schermerhorn, conferring upon him the right to take allotment of land. The MCCLURE farm and Schermerhorn leases were part of this allotment. These lands were located in the productive part of the Healdton oil field. It is probable the lease has given $30,000,000 in oil. J. B. Schermerhorn had the land in his name and he took care of it and invested in farms and in sheep ranches in the north, but the little woman who struggled here in the pioneer days of Indian Territory had every comfort that money could buy in her declining years. She was a woman who knew hardship. She was among the tribes when there were no railways.

Let ‘Em Fight
Judge ANDREW J. HARDY acted as a referee in a “kid” scrapping case in juvenile court yesterday afternoon, and after hearing the evidence, concluded it was no contest, and that parents should keep out of court on so trivial pretext as prompted this action. Hardy stated if he were to take note of every kid street fight that occurred, he would be on the jump all the time. He stated that if was sometimes necessary for kids to engage in a “friendly fight,” but could see no reason why the courts of the county should be called upon to settle the disputes that usually resulted in nothing more serious than a bloody nose or a black eye.

Healdton
An attack of a young bull pup on its mother saved the life of EDWIN CRIMM, 10 years old, here Wednesday afternoon. The youngster had crawled under a house to get a ball that bounced there. A mother bull pup, thinking the boy was attempting to get her young puppies, attacked him and was chewing on one when an offspring of the dog, about half grown, attacked her. Edwin was unable to make a defense because of the cramped condition. His screams brought other family members but they were unable to help. The youngster was pulled from under the house while the dogs fought and later the mother dog was killed, her head severed and sent to Norman for examination of possible rabies. Amputation of the boy’s arm is still undecided.

Spaulding Is Always on Job
GEORGE A. SPAULDING, U. S. commissioner, was in Healdton yesterday where he heard two bankruptcy cases and he hurried home to see the Boomers pelt the Twins at Boomer Park. Hard work and a summer sun had no terrors for him, in his 70th year. He does not appear more than 40, health unusually good, his step just agile as when he was 20. It was on Jan. 9, 1878 when he pulled out of his native northeastern New York and came west. He stopped in western Kansas and then in 1896 came to Poteau, Indian Territory. He was U. S. commissioner in Indian Territory days. In 1910 he moved to Ardmore. In 1915 he became U. S. commissioner, a republican in politics but his appointment came from a democrat, judge ROBERT L. WILLIAMS, a personal friend. En route west 44 years ago, he stopped at Albany, New York and bought a bill of goods. The merchant gave him a rule of foot measurement, which folds four times and occupies only three inches of space—a rule that has been carried every day in his pocket.

Hope to Cheat Electric Chair
While ESTEL PERKINS and GEORGE MULLEN occupy a death cell in McAlester penitentiary awaiting August 29, the execution date, there is activity here. Friendly members of the bar, GUY H. SIGLER and P. M. JACKSON of the firm SIGLER & JACKSON, and J. E. WILLIAMS of the firm BROWN & WILLIAMS, volunteered their efforts to have their sentence changed to life imprisonment.

ESTEL PERKINS has s mother with whom he lived. He has a stepfather who is loyal to him. Perkins had gone to school some; he reads and can write. He was not armed when he and Mullen went to the store where Cox was killed. His mother and stepfather own a farm of 80 acres in Hoxbar. The farm has a mortgage, but they offered the deed to Sigler & Jackson and J. E. Williams and move off the farm but the lawyers volunteered their services and declined to take the home of these people. The stepfather was a soldier in the World War and saw active service in France. He is doing all he knows how to do to save his stepson.

With the Mullens boy, it is different. He is homeless and friendless and motherless and has no one to care except the men who are strangers to him. …When the young men entered a plea of guilty, they expected life imprisonment, not the death penalty they received.
