sisnees and unless the package

cussing plans and organizing a
Retail Merchants Association 1

of the town was present. A j
temporary organization was
effected with C. O. Cashion presi

other matters which come up
froip time to time to perplex and

The Mistletoe Reading Club Cele-
brates Washington's Birth-
Following the custom began
with thetirst year of their history
the Mistletoe Reading Club cele-
brated Washington's birthday
this year by an evening of fra-
ternity and good fellowship to
which they invited their hus-
bands and a few friends. The
reception took place at the home
of Dr. and Mrs. Gose. Small)
Hags were in evidence all through j
the house, as a suggestion of
patriotic feeling on the part of
the club in memory of the leader
of the nation in the days of its
An interesting program of
music and song and reading was
presented as follows: Piano
solo—"Chitteric" by Mrs. C. C.
Smith; Vocal Solo by Mrs. T.
Anderson, "He Was a Prince;
Miss Eva Hall road an interest-
ing poetical charactcr sketch,
introducing the name of each
member of the club. Mr. W. L.
Moore rendered a vocal solo
"Sailing", and "The Song of the
Miller" as an encore. Inez Gose
played an instrumental solo
"Mazurka No. 2," by B. Godard,
and responded to an encore.
Cards with the name "George
Washington" were distributed
and each guest requested to
write as many words as they
could in 15 minutes, using only
such letters as were contained in
the name George Washington,
and not using any letter more
frequently than used in it. The
honors of this contest, "From
Farm to White House," a life of
Washington, was awarded to
Prof. Tom Anderson whom the
judges credited with a correct
list of 95 words.
Partners were secured by
matching duplicate cards show-
ing the dial o? a clock, the hands
being arranged to show a differ-
ent time of day on as many pairs
of cards as there were couples
present. Another contest was
in answering a series of questions
contained on a card, the answers
to be found on the face of a clock.
A half dozen tied on this contest,
and the lot fell in favor of l1. L
Ratliff who was awarded a hand
some ash tray. Refreshments
were served by Miss Agnes
Berrigan, Miss Calla Stewart,
Inez Gose, Ruth Berrigan,
Willard Darrow and Leonard
Merrill. After a full enjoyment
of the refreshments and linger
ing awhile in social converse th<
guests departed in a vain ctlort
tn reach their homes before the
lights went out. The out of
tow 11 guests were Mesdames C
C. Smith, of Enid and E. B.
Cockrell, of El Reno, both honor-
ary members of the club. The
evening was fully enjoyed by all
present and the committees are
entitled to commendation for the
pleasure the evening afforded.
so as to include "cider, so-called
temperance drinks, and all bever
ages containing more than three
percent, of alcohol."
The Bartholdt amendment was
voted down, 32 to 94. The Hum
phreys amendment was then
adopted, 129 to 40.

and enlarged results. The con
gregations are large—so large
that the church has been compell-
ed to place extra chairs in every
available space to seat the people.
There have been twenty nine ac
cessions to the church up to this
writing, and many more are ex-
pected as the meetings continue.

A Growing City.
The editor of the Clipper and
his wife returned home on Tues-
day, the 10th inst. from Chicka-
sha, Oklahoma, where they spent
three or four days visiting their
son L. G. Miller, of the Bank
Printing Co., at that place. We
were surprised at the improve-
ments in the way of tine new bus-
iness blocks of the modern type,
since we were there last summer.
Chickasha has commenced paving
the streets, and instead of being
the mudhole we saw on our tirst
visit about three years ago, the
big transfer wagons heavily load-
ed move quickly and easily along
the well paved streets. Paving
will be extended many blocks the
coming season. Chickasha is al
ready a great cotton market, and
with the cheap power which she
is now able to supply manufactur
ers as a sesult of the completion
of the new dam across the Wash
ita, she will soon become a great
manufacturing city as well
Bein^ in the center of a great
cotton country, by the aid of
cheap power, Chickasha, ought to
be able to move for the securing
of cotton mills and become to the
Southwest as a manufacturer of
cotton goods what Birmingham,
Alabama, is to the South as a pro
ducer of steel and iron.
Only last week the legislature
I of Oklahoma located the Girl's
Reform School at Chickasha.

which provides that all interstate
shipments of liquor by common
carriers shall be plainly labeled
as to contents, consignee and his
address. While the bill was first
passed in the house it was drawn
in the senate judiciary committee
and will probably pass the senate
this session. If so it will deal a
death blow to the bootleggers of
Oklahoma. The bill specifies a

"The republicans voted on
second reading foY Chickasha
without knowing anything con
cerning the Hurst Warner con-
test. When it came up for final
vote on third reading, the charge
was made on one side by rumor
that in Ardmore the confederate
Hag had been used to decorate
the public schools, and on the
other side rumor said that the
senator from Chickasha was
going to vote to retain Hurst as
against Warner, who was con-
ceded to have a majority of the
votes, provided the votes were
counted for him where his
name had been mis-spelled on
the official ballots in one county
in his district. I did not investi
gate the rumor as to Ardmore,
but I went to the senator and
told him the report was out that
he had said that he would not
vote to seat Warner under any
circumstances. He denied hav
ing made any such statement
and said he intended to pass
upon the question regardless of
the politics of the gentlemen
interested and according to the
merits of the case. This was
satisfactory to me and I so re
ported to the other members of
the minority, and this is all there
was of the matter. The minority
voted substantially as they did
