12 - The Perkins Journal, Thursday, June 7, 1973 i!! THE TOM MIX MUSEUM, Dewey, Oklahoma, is a hall of fame to the celebrated cowboy-actor of the silent film era, whose white hat became the trademark of "good guys." Mix began his film career just outside Dewey and starred in more than 300 films throughout his lifetime. He also served a term as Dewey town marshal. The museum--open daily--houses personal belongings, cowboy trappings, and movie memorabilia that tell Mix's exciting life story. The fabulous $15,000 saddle worn by "Tony, the Wonder Horse" is on display. Across the street from the museum is the grand Dewey Hotel, built in the 1890's and now open for guided tours after an extensive refurbishing. Follow the white hat signposts to these Dewey attractions, just north of Bartlesviile. (Oklahoma Tourism Photo) On the 0aper jacket of today's light bulbs are three ratings: t. WATTS: This tells you how much electricity goes into the bulb. 2. LUMENS: This tells you the amount of light output. 3. HOURS: This tells you how long the bulb will normally last. The best buy depends on what you use the bulb for. If you're buying it for reading or studying, you want brightness so buy luminance. If you want extra-life and more brightness, pick an extra-life bulb with a high luminance rating, If you're buying it for a closet or attic, buy more hours. Like everything electric, light bulbg have come a long way to help im0rove the quality of living. and that,s how you for you! money! News Donna Murlin There were 26 attending church Sunday...
