MAKES 2-CENT FARE GOOD.
Oklahoma Railroads Have Been De-
nied n Writ to Stop Order
Oklahoma City. Nov. 3.—The Su-
preme Court denied the railroads a
writ of supersedeas, pending appeal
of the order of the corporation com-
mission prohibiting the charging of
a penalty against passengers who
seek to take advantage of the 2-cent
fare by buying tickets to the state
line and then paying cash fare on
trains to points in other states which
have reduced passenger rates.
This makes the order effective
immediately until finally determined
in the courts, The order, however,
v 111 not give relief to interstate pas-
sengers having baggage, as it does
not require trains to stop at state
line stations to re-check baggage.
THE FATE OF A SPRING 1*0EM.
One evening whilst reclining in my
easy chair repining
O'er the lack of true religion and
the dearth of common sense.
A solemn-visaged lady, who was
surely on the shady
Side of forty, entered proudly and
to crush me did commence.
“I sent a poem here, sir!” said the
lbdy, growing fiercer,
"And the subject which I’d chos-
en, you'll remember sir, was
But although I’ve scanned your
journal with a patience
I've discovered of that poem not
a solitary thing.”
She was muscular and wiry, and
her hair was wild and fiery,
And 1 knew to pacify her I must
lie most bitterly.
So I said, with inward curses, (hat
before we got her verses
We'd received just forty-five on
spring, of which we'd print-
And I added: "We've decided they
had better be divided
Among the years that follow,
three to each succeeding spring;
So your work, I'm pleased to men-
tion, will receive our best
In the year of 1920, when the
birds begin to sing."

Where they treat you right
The sale of new college land in
the “Panhandle,” which has been
in progress under th direction of
the state school land department
for the past month, came to a close
at Guymon, Texas county, Wednes-
day night. The sale force of the
school land department, which has
been conducting the sale, is expect-
ed home by Friday or Saturday.
While complete figures on the
sale are unavailable, Secretary John
R. Williams of the school land de-
partment is authority for the tsate-
ment that the sale was the best
from every viewpoint in the history
of the state. All land offered was
sold at a price greatly in excess of
its appraised value.
Mr. Williams, who returned to
Oklahoma City several days ago,
personally supervised the greater
part of the sale.
STAMPEDE WRECKED A TRAIN.
Little Jake, infant son of James
and Frances Scribner, was born
June 10, 1913, and died October
29, 1913, aged four months and
nineteen days. The remains were
interred in the Herrington ceme-
tery. Little Jake leaves a grief
stricken father, mother, one sister
and three brothers, besides a large
circle of friends to mourn his early
departure. Little Jake has only
gone on before and is waiting your
arrival and since he cannot come
back to you, prepare to go to him.
Farewell darling thou hast left us
Here alone to mourn for thee,
But we know that thou art happy
Shfe across death’s stormy sea.
Yes, we know thou art an angel,
In that far and better land,
And we know that thou, art number-
With the bright celestial band.
Engine Crew was Killed When Lo-
comotive Hit Cattle in Texas
Childress, Texas, Oct. 29.—Stam-
peding cattle today wrecked a Fort
Worth & Denver freight train at
Giles. The engineer, E. S. Hawley,
and H. O. McCormick, the fireman,
were killed. Both lived in Amarillo.
The herd ran across the track di-
rectly in front of the on-rushing
train and the locomotive plowed
through the mass of animals for a
considerable distance, grinding
many to death. The engine and ten
cars were derailed and fell down a
30-foot embankment. The cattle
were moving northward and a cold
wind was blowing. This is the first
stampeding herd that has caused a
wreck in the Panhandle country for ]
