The annual meeting of the
stockholders of the Norman
Building & Loan Association
was held at the office of the As-
sociation Monday night. One
thousand of the fifteen hundred
shares of the Association were
represented in this meeting. The
affairs of the Association as
shown by the report of the aud-
iting committee: Prof. S. W.
Reaves, Prof. Roy Hadsell and
D. L. Larsh, were shown to be
in excellent condition, in fact as
Mr. Larsh said, who has served
on the auditing committee every
year since the association was
organized, 4-The best in the
history of the Association."
During the past year the loatis
of the association have in-
creased over $12,000 and at pre-
sent time are approximately
$48,000. All of the paper of the
Association A I. as reported by
auditing committee. The divi-
dend declared for the past year
was 12 per cent easy.
The expense of handling the
business for year was only $269.
Quite a big volume of business
to be handled at so light an ex-
pense and explains why so large
a dividend was declared. Dur-
ing the past year the Associa-
tion has not been able to meet
the demand for loans. The de-
mand this year will be greater
than ever before and the asso-
ciation will be able to keep all
of the money of the association

The time is opportune for
parties to invest in stock in the

Last Sunday afternoon when
Ed Dameron, a young farmer
living 13 miles east of Norman,
returned home from Oklahoma
City, where he had been to take
the milk of his vicinity to the
creamery in the morning, Sun-
day morning being his turn to
go, he found to his surprise that
his wife was not at home, and
thinking, perhaps, that she was
over at a neighbor's, he put up
his team and went into the
I house. In the house he found a
note, written by his wife, in-
forming him that she had gone,
land not alone, and that he was
not to hunt for her, and that he
would find his horse at Moore.
I Mr. and Mrs. Dameron had been
married four years and always
lived happily together. They
had no children. The party
whom Mrs. Dameron went off
with was Henry Thomas, mana-
ger of C. G. Jones' ranch. He
left a wife and three small chil-
dren with nothing. The pair
took the train at Joore and
were last heard of in Pauls Val-
ley. Mrs. Dauieron is a daugh-
ter of Mr. an I VI r .J C. Shank
. of this city, and w . considered
by all who knew h r ;is an ex-
cellent young worn m, and her
parents and friends are pros-
trated over the event. Her hus-
band cannot account for her
action. Of late, be said, she
had been reading some novels,
and had gone to O'ilahoma City
and had her fortune told. The
young couple were prospering
quite well farmiug and Mr.
Dameron is a fine appearing fel-
low of good habits, industrious
and dearly loved his wife, and
never dreamed or had any inti-
mation that she would do as she
A GRAFTER OF THE WORST TYPE
Thought That We Were a Bit Fresh Be-
cause We Told Him He Ought to Be
Run Out of Town, and Wanted
No matter where you go you
will find some suckers to bite on
every graft that comes along,
and that Norman has a few such
people was demonstrated yes-
terday. A shirt peddler came
to town, showing a line of very
ordinary goods, and several peo-
ple whom we know of bit on his
graft by giving him an order.
His goods were made in Par-
sons, Kansas, he said, and he
took cousiderable offense at the
editor of this paper when he
told him that he was a grafter.
There was no excuse for anyone
giving this fellow an order. Yet
several did it, and thus hurt
Norman just that much.
One big fellow, who is a prom-
inent citizen here, in a conspic-
uous way at least, and who is
generally considered a pretty
good citizen, gave the shirt
peddler an order because, so he
said, he could not get a shirt in
town to fit him. Now, any of
jour tailors here would have
gladly either made him a shirt,
j or have ordered one for him, had
he only asked them. Our mer-
chants have money invested
here and pay taxes on the in-
vestment, and it is an injustice
to them for anyone to send away
for something that can just as
well be bought here, or ordered
from someone in business here.
The big fellow, after he had
made his order, was "touched"
for twenty-five cents extra be-
cause he was so big, making his
shirts cost him more than he
ever paid for a shirt before
that was of the same quality of
There were others also who
ordered shirts of this peddler,
