ALVA. WOODS COUNTY, OKLAHOMA. FRIDAY. OCTOBER 20. 1911
We ve been overhearing some complimentary remarks about our Prescription Work from
tke Doctors and Nurses of this town lately. We are highly pleased but not surprised.
There’s always a lot of satisfaction about doing anything well whether it receives any
notice or not— but to do well and be told that we have done well is mighty pleasant.
This is worth your knowing when you have a prescription to put up.
Remember to come here for particular wants.

laundryman, to lose an opportunity
for a free shirt. Neighbors report
that Alex Davis, Jr., was up and

he was going out to the farm, but it

It. H. WILSON HERE.
This is my first visit to Alva, and
after spending two days in this city,
visiting the school and visiting the
class room of every teacher, 1 am
impressed as follows:
That the faculty is working in
harmony, and are enthusiastic in
their work. I have never observed
the work of a more orderly set of
students than I find here. Without
exception the order has been good.
I am especially impressed with the
general neatness and cleanliness of
the buildings and the well kept con-
dition of the grounds. The improve-
ments now contemplated will make
this campus one of the most beauti-
ful to be found.
I have met a number of the citi-
zens of Alva, and find them, without
exception, to be enthusiastic for the
Normal School. 1 am impressed that
Alva is an ideal location for such
an institution, for after all, a school
does not consist of buildings alone,
but must exist in the hearts and
sympathy of the people.
My visit here has been a pleasant
one. I shall look forward with
great pleasure to the time when 1
shall have an opportunity to make
another visit to the Northwestern.
R. H. WILSON.

the institution and the manner in
which It is being conducted. He met
a number of the citizens and express-
ed the opinion that in the event of
pruning off of a number of state
schools, that there is no danger of
the Northwestern being discontinued,
and predicted that the institution
would be here when most of those
now living have passed away.

CARD OF THANKS
This week we are sending state-
ments as fast as we can to all of our
subscribers who are receiving the
Record past the time to which their
subscriptions are paid. We
hope that all who possibly can will
attend to this call, as we need the
money. Where it ineuns only a
small amount #to each subscriber, *it
means several hundred of dollars to
us. All of the expenses of a news-
paper office must be met promptly;
the help paid at the end of each
week, rent usually in advance, stock
and equipment to be cared for in
20 to 60 days, lights, phone and fuel
to be met monthly. In addition to
this, the editor is in constant danger
of getting licked for slander or being
made the defendant in a libel suit,
which taken altogether, shows that
the editor's chair is not a bed of ros-
es. The dollar or two that you send
in will greatly help the situation with
us. We are trying to make the Rec-
ord the best family newspaper in the
county, with its big country corre-
spondence, its interesting local col-
umns, Its front page with write-ups
of the principal happenings In city
and county, its editorial page with
observations political and otherwise,
and continued stories by the best
writers, we are giving you a paper
that your family cannot afford to do
without. It only costs two cents a
week, or a dollar a yeur, and when
paid promptly each year, the amount
is hardly missed.
A prompt response to our little no-
tices will be greatly appreciated by
In a recent issue of the Record
we acknowledged the receipt of a
fine water melon from the hands of
Judge Jeff Bower. Just as the office
force watering at the mouth, got
ready to "cyarve dat" melon it was
discovered that Baid melon was con-
spicuous by its absence. Some one
then remembered that Frank Turn-
er, of the post office gang, had been
seen hanging around the Record of-
fice that day and two of the office
sleuths Immediately started an inves-
tigation. The rear door of the post-
office is only four or five steps from
the rear door of the Record office.
To think was to act. Looking
through the door of the postofflce,
we suw unmistakable evidence that a
crime had been committed. There
lay the remains of our water melon
In two pieces with its interior de-
partment carefully scooped out and
a carving knife sticking In one of
the halves, standing as a mute wit-
ness of the surrounding desolation.
On charging the post office core
with the crime, they gave us the
horse laugh in a most boisterous
manner, which was the only answer
they vouchsafed us. We are inclin-
ed to believe that an employe named
Howard Is the smooth guy who ab-
stracted the melon and Frank Turner
has intimated that he is ready to
turn United States evidence in order
to clear his own pants of complicity
in this shady transaction. Whether
Uncle Sam will protect his employes
from condign punishment for such
nefarious transactions, remains to be
seen. On laying the whole case bare
before Judge Bower, he left another
and better melon at the Record office
on condition that we would either
hold up the conduct of the post office
employes to the scorn of a discrimi-
nating public or pay for the water
melon, and we chose the former
horn of the dilema. We ll take the
other horn with the Judge when he
brings us another melon.

II TOOK THE BLUE RIBBON
Mr. Samuel Pierson of this city, is
exhibiting the beautiful blue ribbon
of the Oklahoma State Fair, which
was awarded him as first prize for
his Oklahoma Clipper Cutting Appa-
ratus for Mowers and Reapers. This
is Mr. Pierson’s own invention and
was patented by him. His exhibit at
the state fair attracted the attention
of every one who is interested in
mowers and reapers and its advan-
tages over all others was at once
conceded by all who compared the
cutting apparatus of the various ma-
The only thing that stands in the
way of Mr. Pierson’s realizing a large
sum for his patent is that the trusts
control the manufacture of harvest-
ers and that no improvement in that
class of machinery, however meri-
torious, can get recognition from it
unless some manufacturer with al-
most unlimited capital should take
the matter up. The Commercial
Club might aid Mr. Pierson in finding
some one with financial backing
strong enough to manufacture and
place this machine on the market.
MEETING OF FEDERATED 4’LUHfi
The Federated Clubs will meet
Saturday, Oot. 21, at 3 p. in., in the
parlors of the Presbyterian church.
Refreshments will be served by the

ed to attend.
