PLEASED WITH BUSINESS.
More Cotton Marketed Here This Year Than Any Place Its Size in
Lexington certainly has come to
the front this year, and is doing
the largest business in its history.
All of the merchants are feeling
The weather has been ideal this
fall and the farmers are having
plenty of time to get their crops
gathered. They are still bringing
in the fleecy staple and lots of corn,
and produce too numerous to men-
Many of the merchants have told
us within the past few days that
their November business was going
to be larger than any month they
have had for several years. Each
seems to have a day when he does
the best business is bis line.
The bank statements, published
in this week's paper show more
than $315,000.00 in deposit; about
$292,000.00 individual deposits.
The cotton yard had received up
to last night, six thousand, three
hundred ami fourteen bales. While
S. T. Williams was running his
gin, lie bought three hundred bales,
and hauled them to the compress,
without placing them in the yard.
The average bale of cotton, seed
and all, lias sold for an average of
$80. The amount of money that j
has been paid for cotton in Lexing-
ton is $528,000. Some business,
With all this business, two new-
stores have come within our midst.
Joe Schwartz, of Purcell, has brought
a nice line of gent's furnishing
goods to this side of the river, and
J. W. Morris, of Oklahoma City, I
has come to join our prosperous
merchants, with a nice line of jew-
elry. and all kinds of Christmas

Oklahoma Will Debate Kansas
Final arrangements have been
perfected for the big annual inter-
collegiate debate between the state
universities of Oklahoma and Kan-
sas. The contest will be held in
Lawrence some time in April. A dis-
tinct departure is to be made this
year from the method heretofore
followed. In the past two debitors
have represented each school, one
being designated as the leader and
having the rebuttal speech on each
side. This year each university will
be represented by three contestants
the speeches being all the same
length and all the debaters having
rebuttal arguments. These debates
have been the source of unusual
interest in both states since their
inception and the rivalry between
the two institutions for supremancy
on the rostrum has always been
keen. At present Oklahoma has one
more victorv to her credit than Kan-

Mr. A. L. Geno, of east of town,
and Miss Allie Davis, of north of
town were united in the holy bonds
of matrimony at the home of the
brides parents, Mr. and Mrs. A. J.
Davis last Sunday.
Mr. Geno is well known in Lex-
ington, and is a prosperous farmer
east of here. Miss Davis is a beau-
tiful and accomplished young lady
and is well worthy of the man of
The Leader joins their many
friends in wishing them a long and
happy married career.
Pay Particular Attention
Read B. C.Clark, PureeHs enter-
prising jeweler and music dealer big
page ad this week in the Leader.
Mr. Clark ha been in buisness
in Purcell for about eighteen years,
and has built up a fine jewelry busi-
ness by handling good reliable goods
and selling them right. He is going
in the piano and music business the
same way. You will do well to see
him if you need anything in his line.
Thiiik This Gver
I'utting the home town on the
map and keeping it there—making
it a better residence town—is a
matter of intelligent co-operation
on the part of the buisness men. In-
telligent co-operation means forget-
ting past differences of opinion and
working unitedly for the common
good. No buisness man in town can
achieve muxium success unless the
town as a whole has first achieved
that success. Every knock against
any good buisness man in the town
is a knock against every other busi-
ness man there Every knock against
the town by a resident is a boost—
for a competing town. Take your
petty jealousies and differences out
behind the barn and bury them for-
ever. Then get busy for a effort co-
oqerative that will make life worth
living. You can if you will.

Caught With Hands.

other day. and saw a hawk swoop
down after some chickens. She
"shoo'cd" at it and it became tan-
gled in some v. -e bushes in itr-

ran to the bushes and caught it
with her hands, then took a slick
and killed it.
