<Beggs Blood Purifier - Moore Drug>

Mr. Dave Carr of Okmulgee has been missing for over a week and his friends are exerting every energy to find him. It seems that on last Wednesday night two parties awoke him from his slumbers and informed him that his son Israel, who is scouting from the officers, was near there and wished to see him. Mr. Carr got up, dressed, saddled his horse and started out where Israel was suppose to be. He failed to return that night, though little was thought of it until the next day when his horse was found loose in the woods. Search was instituted for him but up to the time of going to press he has not been found. It is a very mysterious disappearance and his friends fear foul play. Several theories have been advanced as to his fate but they have no fourdader. It will be remember that Walt Grayson was assassinated at Carr's house Christmas week and now Mr. Carr's disappearance deepens the mystery.
