As a result of a break of the lift-
ing rods in the pump at the sprink-
ling well late Saturday afternoon
Hennessey had a dusty day last
[ Monday at which time the pump
was taken out and repaired, The
absence of the sprinkling service on
Monday plainly showed how bene-
ficial it is to the town. It was also
decided at the same time to thor-
oughly clean out the well in order to
increase the supply of water and
and Tuesday and Wednesday about
five feet of mud and rubbish was
taken out which will allow a better
flow of the stream of water into the
well and also increase the resorvoir
capacity that much more.

The Clint Admiral
James Hanna was born in Harri-
son county, Ohio, on the 15th day
of February, 1831. His early life
was spent on a farm in Vinton and
Fayettte counties, Ohio. At the age
of twenty-four he united with the
Presbyterian church and remained
a member of that church until he
came to Hennessey when he united
with the CongiTgationol church there
being no Presbyterian church here.
In 1862 he enlisted with Company
C, 114 Regiment, 0. V. T. I., and
served during the civil war. He
was discharged from service in 1865
at Austin, Texas. During that time
he was in some of the hardest fought
battles of the war—Chicksaw Bluffs,
Arkansas Post, Grand Gulf, Cham-
pion Hill, Black River,—and was at
the capture of Vicksburg and in the
Red River Campaign and at the cap-
ture of Mobile. During the battle of
Vicksburg he was wounded in the
foot and during the capture of Mobile
was injured by a shell which inpar-
ed his hearing.
After the close of the cival war he
returned to Fayette county, Ohio,
where in 1868 he married Tobitha
Baker. After a little more than two
years she died leaving two children
Mr. Hanna then lived a few years in
Iowa, later returning to Ohio, where
in July, 1880 he was married to
Emma Fields. To this union was
born a son, Oscar, who still lives
with his parents and took care of
his father during his last illness.
Mr. Hanna moved to Hennessey
from Nebraska two years ago, where
he passed away quetly Tuesday
morning at 6 o'clock, May 16, 1911.
While Mr. Hanna is not an old
resident of this community yet he
is well known and leaves many
friends. He was universially known
as a good man, faithful to life's
Mr. Hanna wrote a brief sketch of
his own life several weeks ago. He
knew his end was near although he
said nothing about it. While he
loved life yet he was ready to go
and bad put not only his life but all
his earthly affairs in order.
We truly miss such men when
they are gone.
The funeral will be held from the
residence at 2:00 o'clock this after-
noon, Rev. C. C. Burger, pastor of the
Congregational church, conducting
the ceremonies The remains will
be shipped to Ohio for burial.
The Appeal to Reason
One of the first criticisms that can
be legitimately brought against "The
Appeal" is that it is an appeal to
passion—not reason. The language
of the paper is extreme, lurid, and
loaded with prejudice. So is its
theory. Who has seen a copy of
The Appeal that attributed a fair
mind and human heart to any rich
man? When has The Appeal taken
up both sides of the question and
discussed it with equal care and fi-
delity to the truth? When lias ii
written considerately of capital, or
the president? When has it aimed
to interpret the problems of public
interest to its readers? When has
STEALS MARCH ON FRIENDS
C. D. Hart Quietly Slips Away
With Bride to be and is
Married in Enid
A cleverly planned wedding was
solemnized in Enid last Saturday,
May 13, when Mr. Clay I). Hart and
Miss Dora Anderson were quietly
married by Rev. Sutton, pastor of
the Baptist church of that place,
the nuptial vows being taken at
8 o'clock p. in.
The marriage of Mr. Hart was
somewhat of a surprise to his Hen-
nessey friends, as the bride was not
' I o resident of this vicinity but has
it ever assumed that capital is|hcen visklllrf herc fr(jm ^

When has it made a case out fori c . ,
Saturday afternoon, lus actions
the manhood of America to medi-
tate and act upon without anger?
The Appeal is an appeal hut it is
not reasonable nor is it calculated
to do anything other than inflame
and excite, and promote ill feeling,
distrust, suspicion and prejudice.
Persons who read The Appeal
regularly, with abandon, come to be
sullen, and hypercritical; they are
being w holly unsuspected, Mr. Hart
procured an auto and with his bride
to be, drove to Enid where the cere-
mony was performed, the news of
the wedding not being generally
known here until Monday.
Mr. Hart, though residing in lien
nessey, is one of the substantia
and progressive farmers of the
filled with grievances, bitterness,r' oniity, owning and managing three
and denunciation; they talk and de-
nounce. Thinking, inquiry, medita-
tion and patience are n >t their cus-
tom and habit. They are tinder for
the consuming fire of anarchy, and
become the most dangerous enemies
of their own and actual cause.
They cannot think clearly and their
confusion is the reign of terror tint
seems to be striking into hearts of
men who do not understand that
the world is s'owly but
getting better and wiser.
Things will come right, and they
are doing it every hour, but the
fine farms just east of town. He
also owns a handsome residence
in Hennessey which was in readi-
ness for the bride, and where tliey
will make their home. Mrs. Hart
also has large property interests and
the combining of their interests in
sures a safe financial basis. The
prospects of a happy future are
very flattering for this couple.
While the bride is unknywu to
certainly |our PeoPh, the numerous friends of
Mr. Hart have unbounded faith in
his ability to make a wise choice
and will cordially welcome Mrs.
Appeal to Reason is reeling about | ^art t0 'ler "ew home among them
While out riding Monday evening
Mr. and Mrs. Hart were met and
surrounded hy a jolly charivari party
who with cow hells, tin pans and
various articles of hidious noise
making capabilities, clamorouly de-
manded treats, which had a most
in the fog of its own preverted and
druken mental mists.
The hope of this notion, and the
relief that the readers of the Appeal
seek, lies not in anger and brooding
but rather in the whole truth about
all of us. Finally the fair and rea-
sonable condition will prevail. That
man is to live longest and best who
discovers the actual truth earliest.
The Appeal is intended to keep a
man from doing this.—Enid Eagle.

Pretty May Wedding
A very pretty wedding was sol-

May 10, when Miss Elsie Mae
Thomas and Mr. Samuel Kingery
were united in marriage at the home
of the bride's parents, seven miles

rites being performed by H. Attie
Stone, pastor of the Christian church
at Hennessey. Only the immediate
families and a few intimate friends
witnessed the ceremony.
The bride was gowned in a beau-
tiful white messallne creation with
elaborate trimmings of silk banding
and net which enhanced her pretli-
ness. Garden roses tastefully ar-
ranged splendidly decorated the
rooms. After the ceremony and
congratulations the bridal company
