Kingfisher county held a union
Sunday school convention at King-
fisher in the Christian church Janu-
ary 12 and 115.
Owing to the cold weather the
delegates were few, not more than
six schools being represented an I
Hennessey Congregational Sunday
school being the only one that sent
delegates and had their school rep-
resented in this township or uearei
V than Dover, of which we an* sorry
Although the attendance was not
large, nevertheless, there was no
luck of warmth of enthusiasm in
the meetings. Those whose failed
to attend or send delegates missed
a real beneficial convention.
Prof. Alvin Roper was by many
considered the best pianist that has
ever been in the county. So those
who did rot hear him will find it
worth while to try and attend the
state convention to be held at Guth-
rie March ti and 7, 1912, as he
will be there at that time.
Mrs. G. W. Dowis, state superin-
tendent of the home department,
made a great appeal for the boys to
attend Sunday school, her subject
being. "The Boys of Today.
The fact that she increased her
class of boys in Blackwell froin less
than ten to more than sixty proves
that she had something to say that
was worth listening to.
Don't shy by the county and
township conventions. Don t shy
by the little ones. If you are not
interested enough to go to them
your church will find it beneficial
to send some one If you are not
interesteJ in the little ones you will
not get much out of the larger ones,
as the smaller conventions are of
more help to your local Sunday
pations or pastimes—whichever it
may be classed—that people can
indulge in. Omitting 1909, for which
there is no official data, official re-
ports show that during the ten-year
period between 1901 and 1911 in-
clusive, 50,708 p?rsons were killed
while trespassing on railroad prop-
erty and 54,183 injured, making a
total casualty list of 104,991. There
is now a movement in Indiana and
other states to make it unlawful to
use the railroads as thoroughfares,

i Dear Oklahoma Friends:
t I will write a brief lettor to let
i iny old neighbors and friends know
II where I am and what 1 am doing,
j As you kn iw ui' b'St, you know 1
Main not here for my health alone,
| although I hove gained in weight as
t much as 1 ."> pounds since coming to
► California and feel much better than
I have for the past live years.
At present I am cooking on u farm
located in a beautiful valley one
mile from a small village where I
have church privileges. The people
here are quite sociable and I feel
quite at home. The pastor and his
family here are from Morgan coun-
ty, Illinois, the county in which 1
grew to womanhood, and that makes
it feel more like home.
I only visited my sister in Los
Angeles three weeks, for since the
hail took what the drouth left of my
crop in Oklahoma, I felt as il I owed
it to my friends to go to work, as
wages range fiom $35 to $40 per
month for women like myself. I
get $40 for cooking for family of 14
My time is limited right now as the
lady 1 a working lor has been in a
hospital since Thanksgiving day and
I have her four boys to care for in
addition to my cooking, but she will
be home in a few days and then 1

Many Deaths From Trespassing
According to accident bulletin
number 40, just issued in flaming
red color by the Interstate Com-
merce commission, tresspassing on
give you a letter telling some of the
wonders of Southern C alilornia.
I spent Christmas with my sister
in Los Angeles. After dinner we
took a walk and viewed the climb-
roses. The flowers were just
beautiful. I sent some rosebuds to
my son in Indiana, and wished I
could send my Oklahoma friends
such a bouquet as 1 gathered that
day. The freeze the following
luunwia - j week damaged the oranges audi
corner is a thief lemons and the flowers, too.
They say it is the coldest weather ;
they have had in many years at j
Los Angeles, and from what the j
papers say I would infer that Okla-1
homa is having a great deal more
winter weather than usual.
I have seen but few of the many
people that are out here from Okla-
homa, for paying for that piece of
red dirt was the first thing and visit-
ing can come later. II any of my
friends wish to drop me a line they
can reach me at the above address.
Hoping one and all of you had a
merry Christmas and a happy New
Year, I remain,
Yours very sincerely,
Mary A. Brant.

Let it be known far and near that
at all times and under all conditions
every person having business rela
tions of any kind or character with j ing
our citizens will be given a square
deal, and people will flock here as
they have never done before. Don't
entertain customers by telling them
that your competitor on the next
corner is not to be trusted, and the
one around the

only discredit your town and your-
self and give your associates in
business credit for doing the same
thing and it will not established the
confidence which the people must
hsve in your town if it is to prosper.
Be just as anxious for the reputa-
