NORMAN, OKLAHOMA, TUESDAY, JANUARY 26, 1909.
Boj Was Mad Because His Employer
Fired Him For Mistreating IHorses,
and Wanted To Blow Him Up.
GOT GUN AT SECOND HAND STORE
About 18 Years Old-Marshal Took Gun
Away From Him—Was Told To Hike
To His Home In "Arkansaw'\
Geo. Johnson, a farmer living in
McClain county was in Norman last
MondHy and a young boy about 17
years of age, who had been working
for him for the past month, was also
in Norman looking for Johnson with
a gun. It seems that Johnson had dis-
charged the young man because he
did not like the way the young fel-
low handled his horses and the young
man was mad. He secured a shot
gun at one of the second hand stores
and loaded it with buck shot and be-
gan looking for Johnson but the city
marshal took the gun away from
him. He then attempted to purchase
a pistol at the hadware stores; but
they would not sell one to him. His
home was in Arkansas and he was
advised by friends to hike for home
before he got himself into trouble.fl

Benjamin F. Shively, who will succeed James A. Hemenway as United
States senator from Indiana, is a lawyer by profession. He has been a promi-
nent figure in Indiana politics for 20 years or more and was a member of the
forty-eighth, fiftieth, fifty-first and fifty-second congresses. In 1896 he was the
Democratic nominee for governor and in 1903 and 1905 received the Demo
cratic complimentary vote for United States senator.
The rows of Senator Benjamin R.
Tillman of South Curolina with Presi-
dent Roosevelt and Secretaries Meyer
and Bonaparte show that he has lost
none of the pugnacity that won for
him the title of the "pitchfork sena-
Modern Woman Is Fast Forget-
ting Her Sphere In Life.
By LEO DITRICHSTEIN. Actor tnd Pltywrlfht.
CHE MODERN WOMAN IS RAPIDLY FORGETTING HER NAT-
URAL SPHERE IN THE SCHEME OF LIFE. SHE IS
DRIFTING AWAY FROM THE HOME AND THE FIRESIDE,
LOSING SYMPATHY WITH FAMILY TIES AND DUTIES^
AND IS EXPENDING ALL HER ENERGY TO GRATIFY
HER AMBITION FOR SOCIAL POSITION.
In this mad pursuit EVERYTHING ELSE IS NEGLECTED.
^Tfiny of the finer feminine traits arc sacrificed in order to achieve the
social goal. People of real worth, friends of real value, are snubbed
or neglected because they move in a stratum of society a little lower
than that to which she aspires. Men and women are
used simply as stepping stones to reach the pinnacle
of social distinction.
THIS CONDITION EXISTS NOT ONLY IN AMERICA,
BUT EVERYWHERE. EVERY CIVILIZED WOMAN IS
IN SOME MEASURE INFECTED WITH THIS SOCIAL
In some women it is dormant, in some moderate,
and in many it is a great consuming passion that
brooks no obstacle. Not until the goal of ambition
has been reached and the woman has an opportunity
to contemplate her conquests does she realize the UTTER EMlJTI-
IsESS Oi TIIE POSITION she has so long pursued. Eor wom-
an s real nature, planted where no other feeling can entirelv eradicate
it and which must assert itself sooner or later, is to LOVE AND
BE LOVED. No woman's life can be complete without it. She
may lose sight of it for a time, but her heart will cry out at last for
thejmly thing that makes life worth while—true love.
The Coterie club is making ex-
tensive plans towards beautifying
the city. Prizes will be offered to
children for the prettiest flower gar-
dens and beds, and other endeavors
will be made to encourage the plant-
ing of trees, shrub§ and flower plants
of al kinds.
There is perhaps nothing that the
club could take up that will do the
city as much good as this move that
the members are starting. Every
year the club undertakes something
of the sort and good results are ob-
tained. This year the members are
determined to work harder than ever
and the indications are that much
more will be accomplished by reason
of this determination.
This is the time of year that more
shade trees, more flowering shrubs,
more flower gardens, ought to be
planned and planted by every prop-
erty owner in Norman. There is
nothing so nice for a town as these
things and the more of them the
nicer it wil be.
JOHN J. MITCHELL.
One of the leading bankers of Chica-
go, who Is mentioned as possible sec-
retary of the treasury hi the cabinet
of President Taft.
