Now the Time
[ To buy stock cattle.
To fill that silo.
You can make some money on live stock.
We lost money on the wheat crop.
Net Profits
Last August we loaned a customer $300.00 with which
he bought 16 heifers. Last week he sold the bunch and
cleared $230.00. It cost him nothing to make this extra
profit—he had the pasture and grew the roughness.
Thereby turning the usual dead loss into a net profit.
You can do it.
Cattle Loans
We make a specialty of cattle loans, large or small. We
try to keep in touch with the market, we can advise you
on what to buy. We will back our judgment and our
faith in a good man, by putting up the money to buy the
stockers, if you have the roughness and the ability to
handle stock. Figure with us. Terms to suit. We can
and do help our customers make money.

Tuesday night, the 19th in the
Opera House, the University of
Oklahoma glee club will entertain
with a concert. Twenty members
for the ensemble numbers, a reader,
a violinist, a cartoonist and a harp-
ist are the attractions the club is
offering this year. For the first
time, the club is presenting a harp-
ist upon its program and this attrac-
tion will be featured.
The club has done hard work
this fall, under the direction of the
leader, Prof. Schmidt, preparing for
a tour of the southwest.
The concert will be given under
the auspices of the H. H. S, and
will be a benefit for the athletic!
association. The receipts all over1
expenses will be devoted to pay-
ing outstanding indebtedness of the i
athletic association. The boys art
entitled to a good attendance. Buy
a ticket and go. If you cannot go,
at least buy the ticket. You owe
that much to the boys.
Who Can Beat This for Hogs

pounds, and the largest one out of
the hunch, weighed 660 pounds.
