IN POLITICS - A FAIR
DEAL FOR EVERYONE
Vol. 3. No. 36.
DAVENPORT, LINCOLN COUNTY, OKLAHOMA, THURSDAY, AUG 24, 1911.
$1.00 per year
Tomorrow we vote on whether
or not the school board shall is
sue bonds to the amount of
$10,000 for the purpose of se-,
curing funds to build a new
school house. The bonds, if is-
sued, will bear 6 per cent inter-
est and will run for '20 years.
It the district never increases a
dollar in valuation during the
life of the bonds, it will not take
over a three mill levy each year
to finance them. The present
building, although not old, is re-
garded as unsafe by many, and
is too small to properly accomo-
date the school.
For these reasons and because
it is characteristic of Davenport
to want to be as well equipped
as other towns of our size in
this part of the state, there has
apparently been very little op-
position to the proposal to build
a better school house. Unless
appearances are very misleading
and unless many people vote
contrary to their expressions of
opinion, the "no" votes will be
greatly in the minority.
The Era would suggest to
those ^ho, for reasons sufficient
to themselves, are opposing the
lionds. that it wonld be a fine
example of the progressiveness
of the town to maka the vote for
the proposition unanimous, since
the proposition seems bound to
carry beyond any leasonable
It should be rembered thaf all
women ho have established
residence here and are over 21
years of age are entitled to vote.
It will be of interest to all in
the district to know that the
school board last week contract-
ed with an Oklahoma City man
named McMahan to take the
bonds when issued at a premium
of $227.50, the buyer to furnish
all forms and pay all legal ex-
penses in connection with the
approval of the bonds.
The camp meetng being held
at this place by the Nazerine

"Where There's a Will,

Cowardice sits and whines,
"I can't." Courage forces suc-
cess. C A. Ward entered our
college with only $H3. to take a
bookkeeping and business course
He paid this on tuition and mat-
erial, did janitor work to pay
the rest, work on Saturdays and
| at odd times to pay his board.
The day he graduated, he had
paid his tuition, all expenses,
had ^20 cash and a $50 a month
position secured by the college
waiting for him
Such courage and determina-
tion as this always wins respect,
admiration, and success. Anoth
er young man entered with us
in a good position at $65 per
month. He has advanced until
he is now getting more tha $100.
What would weakness, fear,
have done for these young men?
What did stamina and will pow-
er do? Emerson > ays, "Do what
you are afraid to do.' We say,
strike out boldly. There are no
obstacles that brave hearts can
not surmount. Toil is the open
sesame to wealth, and the bright-

The Era is pleased to be able
to announce to its readers that it
has a genuine treat in store for
them. In our issue of next
v " will begin the publication
of nundel Parrish's fascinating
story, "Koith of the Border." It
is one of the kind of stories you
sit up all night to read. Abound-
ing m exciting, though not over-
drawn, situations, it grips your
interest from the start, carries
you breathless through the last
chapter and when you have
finished you can scarcely shake
off the impression that the in-
cidents, of which you have read,
have been part of your own ex-
perience. The scenes are laid
about Carson City, Ft. Larned
and Sheridan, in the times when
a man's life expectancy was
estimated, not by life insurance
tables but by how quickly he
could draw his gun. The old
timers among our readers who
saw pioneer life in Kansas and
Colorado will probably recog-
nize some of the characters.
Don't fail to read it. It's
ences, business training and engineer-
ing are taught. The graduates of our
State A. & M. College never fail of
success because they have developed
intellects and know how to use them
in practical life. Scores of our boys
and girls have been prepared to fill res-
ponsible positions paying from $90 to
$150 per month by attending the col-
lege at Stillwater. Our state should
be proud of the A. & M. College and
the work done for boys and girls who
come from all walks of life.

Davenport first team played
the Red Oak aggregation to in-
dustrial park last Sunday after
noon The visitors were
thought to be some b ill players
but failed to connect with their
reputation some way. Davenport
had a new man in the box. Pat-
terson is his name, just recently
come to this part of the county
from Arkansas. He seemed able
to fan batters at will. The gen-
eral opinion is here that with
him and Burroughs to alternate
in the box, the Davenport team
ought to be able togo through
some of the teams that have
heretofore been to much for
them. Davenport, 34, Red Oak,

Going Away to College

education because they have lost inter-
