The final acts of the governor and
(the, committee of citizens who have
beeta working to raise the $71,200 ex-
pense fund were enacted with whirl
wlnd-llke rapidity. Thursday after-

penses of moving the state offices to

The state offices will be moved 'o
Oklahoma City at once. The chamber
of commerce officials will begin early

can be secured for the ample protec-
tion of the state records, etc., the
last veBtigo of state property will be

iger has made a request
through President E. R. Perry of the
Oklahoma Oil and Gas Producers’ as-
sociation, that a commutes of oil and
gas men from this stats be sent to
Washington to confer with him re-
garding the lees# regulation* on th#
Th* committee will undoubtedly b#
named at a meeting te be held in
Tulsa next Friday afternoon. Presi-
dent Perry le Bending out the ealle for
this meeting today. Attending it will
be the director! and eom* of the mem-
bers of the association will be called
in. The drawing up of thee* regula-
tions marks the final steps in opening
up a million acre* of oil land* in the
Osage nation and it is confidently ex-
pected by Captain Perry that lessor*
will be able to file on th* lands not
later than February let, next.
The Osage nation was at one time
entirely covered with a blanket lease
which was executed in 1826 and ran
ten years, expiring In 1906. At that
time a new lease was granted for an
additional ten years upon 680,000
acres of the land but 1,000,000 acres
were witheld and allotted to Individual
members of As tribe.
The mineral rights to th* allotted
lands were witheld, however, as tribal
property. Oil leasee will therefore be
obtained through the Osage council, as
a tribal affair rather than through the
individual allottees of th* lands. The
leases will pass on to Washington for
the approval of the interior depart-
ment of the federal government. The
royalties from the production* of the
lands goes Into the tribal fund, to be
later divided among the cltiseae of the
It Is thought that the regulations
which rule the leasing of these lands
shall be satisfactory to all concerned
that Secretary Ballinger has called a
conference with the committee of the
Oklahoma men. The committee which
is to be appointed at next Friday’s
meeting will go to Washington after
the holidays. As soon as the regula-
tions are drawn up and approved by
the Osage council and the interior de-
partment the lands will be open to
the oil men.
Another feature of the meeting here
next Friday will be a further discus-
sion upon the legislation to be asked
for by the oil men from the state leg-
islature at the next regular session in
January. The bills which are to be
presented will be ready to come before
the board of directors of the associa-
tion for its approval.

Tulsa Will Have Carnegie Library
Tulsa, Okla.—Tulsa is surely to have
a Carnegie library. Mrs. F. E. Skal-
lenberger, who, in the interest of the
woman’s clubs of Tulsa, called upon
Mr. Bertram, Andrew Carnegie’s sec-
retary, a few weeks ago regarding the
matter, has received word from the

Tw* Men are Slightly Injured In Crash
In Pottawatomie County
Shawnee, Okla.—One of the most
disastrous wrecks that the Rock Isl-
and has had in recent months occurr-
ed Sunday night at Tecumseh Junc-
tion. east of this city. Two special*,
both west bound, had orders to take
the Asher branch track to let regular
No. 92 pass. The first extra, in charge
of Engineer Freeman. Fireman Shel-
don, with Conductor Titsworth in
charge, was just getting ready to back
in, when it was struck by the second
in charge of Engineer Freemen, Fire-
man Kersey, with Conductor Gibson in
charge. The crew of the first special
and the englnemen of the second
jumped before the collision. Engineer
Rosenthal and Fireman Kersey or the
second special were slightly injured.
The engine of the second special, one
of the 2100 class, was piled up with
four cars of coal and a car of lumber,
all of which burned, tying up trafflee
until late Monday afternoon. Train-
master lteddig was at the scene of the
wreck all day, assisting the work of
clearing the track.
When Publicity Is Desired.
"X Y. Z, this office,” was the way
the woman usually wound up the nu-
merous lost article advertisements ne-
cessitated by her absent-mindedness.
The other day she tired of anonymity
and returned in about ten minutes with
the request that her name be substi-
tuted for the initials.
“I attended to that In th* first place,
madame,” said the clerk.
“You did?” she exclaimed. “How
did you know I wanted to use my own
He pointed to the words “Metropoli-
tan opera house” in bef advertisement.
"Because that is where you lost your
bracelet,” he said. “I never yet met a
person who wished to keep his identi-
ty secret when advertising for any-
thing lost at the opera house. People
who lose things any place else in New
Tork often resort to initials when ad-
vertising, but If it happened at the
opera house the more publicity they
can get the better."
I did not receive any answer to my
petition as yet. Though I am flagrante

A Sham* to Spend the Money.

vocal teacher to the student, “your

carry out Instructions.
When she went to her next lesson
the teacher said: “Better—but still
too loud. Try again—you will get it
after (a while."
Again the student returned to her
room and tried for a softer tone. Again
the toacher told her It was still too
Now William, the colored butter,
without whom the house would never
have gone on properly, had heard and
woruered at this gradual diminishing
of tone. It did seem a shame to spend
the money. He would interview the
lady who occupied the room below
that of the frocal pupil.
“What does you think about de

the ceiling. “Hit strikeB me hit’s

First Owners of Furs.
“Women who expect to buy furs this
winter show a lively Interest In th*
Zoo animals,” said a Philadelphia ani-
mal keeper. “They want to find out
what the animal looked like that were
their fur coats and muffs before the
furs were mad* over for them.
“The recent warnings against Imitar
tion furs have made them particular-
ly curlops. Somehow they Imagine
that by comparing the fur of a live
lynx with a cat or a rabbit they will
be able to detect the difference In dyed
furs. Of course they won’t, but any-
how this little excursion into natural
history will do them no harm.
"Women with caracul coats are th*
most persistent investigators. Very
few people except furriers know what
kind of an animal caracul grows on,
and the specimens of the Russian
sheep that produce real caracul and
the Chinese sheep that cheap wool
that is sold for caracul grows on have
been trotted out for inspection so often
that they have become as blase as a
New York show girl.”

Londoners have access to authori-

poses. These are fixed on the outside
of the wall of Greenwich observatory,

feet), with subdivisions accurately en-
graved on them, marked on brass

Mixed on His Melody.
A well-known newspaper that boasts
the authority and the excellence of it#
dramatic and musical criticism pub-
lished recently a criticism of a certalpi
charming light opera. The dramatlo
editor was lavish In hia praise of Bongp
and singers, remarking, wltb a digni-
fied reminder to his readers that it
was his business to pass judgment, not
unmlxed with censure, that the plot
was slightly unconvincing.
Of the music, however, be wrote in
terms of highest commendation. And
he closed hie article with pratae for
the charming entr’actes.
The typesetter got free with the
copy, however, or there was a.mistake
made by the printer’s “devil.” At any
rate, this Is what ap(peared as the
closing sentence of a really masterly
piece of criticism:
“Last night’s music between the acts
was unusually melodious.”
A church at Southend, England, has
been dedicated to St. Erkenwald—the

a very popular saint in his country. It
was he who built the first stone cathe-

Williamsport sportsmen Intend to

looking toward the abolition of bear
traps. The only persons using trap#
are those who hunt bears for mar-

the bear be more fully protected
than under the present laws. It Is
pointed out by those back of the

in traps not only tends to exterminate

Now About Clean Food
Another .Splendid Opportunity to
Bring Out Facts
When the “Weekly” which sued us for libel
(because we publicly denounced them for an
editorial attack on our claims) was searching
for some “weak spot,” they thought best to
send a N. Y. Atty. to Battle Creak, summoned
26 of our workmen and took their sworn state-
ments before a Commissioner.
Did we object? No. On the contrary, we
helped all we could, for the opportunity waa
too good to be lost.
Geo. Haines testified he inspected the wheat
and barley, also floors and every part of the
factories to know things wore kept clean.
That every 30 minutes a sample of the pro-
ducts was taken and inspected to keep the
food up to standard and keep out any impur-
ities. also that it is the duty of every man In
the factories to see that anything not right
Is Immediately reported. Has been with the
Co. 10 years.
Edward Young testified had been with Co.
IS years. Inspector, he and his men exam-
ined every sack and car of wheat and barley
to see they were up to standard and rejected
H. E. Burt. Supt.. testified ha* been with
Co. over 18 years. Bought only the best
grain obtainable. That the Co. kept a corps
of men who do nothing but keep things clean,
bright and polished.
Testified that no ingredient went Into Grape-
Nuts and Postum except those printed in the
advertising. No possibility of any foreign
things getting into the foods as most of th#
machinery is kept closed. Asked if th# fac-
tory is open to the public, said “yes” and “It
took from two to three guides constantly to
show visitors through the works.” Said none
of th* processes were carried on behind closed
At this point attys. for the “Weekly” tried
to show the water used was from some out-
side source. Testified the water came from
Co.’s own artesian wells and was pure.
He testified the workmen were first-class,
high-grade and inspected by the Co.’s physi-
cian to he sure they were all in proper phys-
ical condition; also testified that state reports
showed that Co. pays better wages than the
average and he thought higher than any in
F. B. Martin, Asst. Supt., testified Grape-
Nuts made of wheat, barley, yeast and
water. Anything else? “No, sir.” Postum
made of Wheat, Wheat Bran and New Orleans
Molasses. Statements made on his experi-
ence of about 10 years with Co.
Testified bakers are required to wear fresh
white suits, changed every other day. Said
had never known any of the products being
sent out that were below the high standard
of inspection. Asked if any one connected
with the PoBtum Co. bad instructed him how
to testify. Said, “No, sir.”
Horace Brown testified has been with Co. 9
years. Worked in Grape-Nuts bake shop.
Testified the wbole of the flour is composed qf
Wheat and Barley. Attys. tried to confuse
him. but he Insisted that any casual vlaitor
could see that nothing else went Into the flour.
Said machinery and floors always kept clean.
So these men were examined by the “Week-
ly” lawyera hoping to find at least one who
would say that some under-grade grain was
put in or some unciean condition was found
But it was uo use.
Each and every man testified to the purity
As a sample, take the testimony of Luther
Testified been with Company about 10 years.
Now working in the bakery department mak-
ing Grape-Nuts. Testified that the ovens and
floors are kept clean and the raw products as
they go In are kept clean. Also that the
wearing apparel of the employes has to be
changed three times a week.
Q. Do you use Postum or Grape-Nuts your-
self at all?
A. Yes, I tue them at home.
Q. If from your knowledge of the factory
which you have gained In your ten years at
the factory you believed that they were dirty
__ a------- *_ -------* ’ ----- ‘horn*?
or impure in any way, would you use them:
A I do not think I would. No.
Asked if any one on behalf of the Company
bad asked him to testify in any particular
manner. Stated “No.”
All these sworn depositions were carefully
excluded from the testimony at the trial, for
they wouldn’t sound well for the “Weekly."
Think of the fact that every man swore tP
the purity and cleanliness so that the Atty.
for the “Weekly” was forced to say in open
court that the food was pure and good.
What a disappointment for the "Weekly!"
But the testimony showed:
All of the grain used in Grape-Nuts, PoBtuip
and j^ost Toasties Is the highest standard
possible to obtain.
All parte of the factory are kept scrupulous-
None of the workmen had been told how to
Moat of them have been from 10 to 15 years
with the Bo. and use the products on thefar
tables at home. ———————
Why do their families use the product#,
Grape-Nuts, Postum and Post Toasties, that
they, themselves, make?
