Ira Terrell attracted a large crowd

Bell where he spoke. He related his
where he was sent from Guthrie in
tho early days for murder. Terrell
claims that the whole scheme was laid
becsftse he had fought locating the
capitol at Guthrie in the early days
and that he was never legally con

itentiary. He,Is fighting Guthrie and

NO DULL BUSINESS
AT BURKE'S GROCER!
Two whole carloads of flour and a
This Is the record for a sing'e day at

Burke's Grocery, and Is an indica-
tion of the enormous business they
are doing. A car load of sugar rep-
resents sweeting for an innumerable
number of cups of coffee jr Ja s of
preserves, and who can coun; '.lift
biscuits that two cars of flour would
make? Yes Make? Yet the stock will
doubtless require renewal again with-
in the course of a few days or weeks.
The Burke Grocery company ranks
high among the busy commercial es-
tablishments of the city. Dull times
elsefhere do not affect this establish-
ment, which is proved by the vast
amount of goods being received daily.
Today, for iftstance, there were no
signs of dullness about their place
on East Main street. Two car loads
of flour, the popular Polar Bear and
Hunter Cream brands were unloaded,
the operations boing watched by a
large crowd of spectators. Then also
a car load of cane sugar direct frtmi
New Orleans was also unloaded. This
sugar is of the best quality and from
the people who purchased six
straight car loads at this grocery
last year during the fruit preserving
season, not a single complaint has
been received. People can, by mak-
ing their sugar purchases at Burke s
Grocery, No. 103 % East Main street,
get an article that will absolutely
preserve their fruit and keep it fresh
and sweet. With the new building
which they are to erect the company
will be be better than ever prepared
to serve their customers. Their fu-
ture is as bright as their past has been

A pleasant feature of the congres-
sional parties that make Journeys
abroad is the fact thai Dan Cupid
seems always to be a passenger. He
went to the Philippines, and three
matches resulted. Mr. Ixmgworth, of
Ohio; Mr. Cockran, of New York, and
Mr. Sherley. of Kentucky, all surren-

What is it that makes love the pre-

Does a discussion of Uncle Sam's new
responsibilities lead to. it? Or does the
delightful imprisonment on shipboard
explain it? Whatever the explanation,
the fact exists, and it may result in
making such trips exceedingly popu-

our outlying possessions may come to
overshadow everything else.

he ran away and she was grateful.
In Canada the French settlers still
continue to use large brick ovens out
of doors such as were built in France
250 years ago. The perfection of the
stove and range iu the last 50 years
has driven many of these ovens out of
commission, but many of the inhabi-
tants think that no good baking can
be done in any other oven.
An irreverent Yale student has col-

read books; they write them.

Entitled to a Job.
All Munich was astounded the other
day to wake up and find the city
placarded with a legend which read
as followK 'Without A Head. It Is No
Use." For a whole 24 hours the citi-
zens wondered what this could mean.
The next day the legend was replaced
with a signed announcement that the
advertiser was desperately In need of
employment as a clerk or office man-
ager, and that, in his despair, he had
hit upon this way of attracting atten
tion to his needs As bis money was
now all gone, he hoped that some
kind-hearted person whose attention
be might have attracted would give
him employment without loss of time.
"Without a head," he explained, "It's
no use trying to work; but you can-
not have a bead unless you also have
a stomach, and food to put Into it."
Whether this ingenious advertiser ob-
tained the work he desired does not
appear, for Munich papers are too in
dignant over what they consider the
effrontery of the man In thus intro-
ducing "undesirable American meth-
ods of advertising" to record his suc-
cess or failure. To an American
who is familiar with the "mystery"
signs of the street cars and billboards
this seems but a slight offense, and
one sadly lacking in originality. But
Munich has not yet lost Its feeling of
outraged propriety. ,
Pittsburg was not so dismayed by
the heavy floods as to be unable to
celebrate In true American fashion
the addition to its lusty self of Al-
legheny City. "Greater Pittsburg," If
the supreme court of the United
States does not forbid the union, will
contest with Baltimore the sixth place

A citizen of Nebraska offers $100 In
gold to every couple who marry In hip '

kan offers his gold In the shape of
coin8 instead of bricks.
The Partisan Arbitrator.
The machinery of arbitration would
work better and would be made vastly
more effective if we co6ld get rid of
the false notion that an arbitration is
a diplomatic contest rather than a Ju-
dicial proceeding. A member of a
court of arbitration who acts upon the
assumption that there Is a victory to
be won, sa> s New York Times, to
that extent HI qualified for his task.
The true aim, of course, Is to reach a
Just decision, and that may Involve—
Inevitably will Involve—either the
loss of a cause or some abatement of
pretensions for one of the nations in
controversy. A partisan arbitrator Is
a living contradiction of terms.
