Mrs. IVlary James Dead Ckl
Klanom't r Physic:*!
Mrs. Mary James, of 'Louisville,
Kentucky, died Wednesday, Janu-
ary 25th, at her home.
Mrs. James was the mother of
our former townsman. Fred W.
James. She visited here several
years ago, and made many friends
who were sorry to learn of her
The deceased was about 70 years
Students will Give a Circus
"Step right up this way ladies and
gents! Take a look at the Untam-
ed lei]i>ruf the Cannibal Islands!
Hie only wild man in captivity
ihat lias never been tamed!" Such
and similar words, chanted in the
monotonous nasal sing-song of the
circus "barker." will soon b e
heard at the old cam pus at the
State University. Following the
lead of a number of large eastern
universities, the members of the
junior class will give what they
promise to be a real circus,• in or-
der to help defray the expenses of
publishing the college annual.
There will be a pike along which
ill manner of strange attractions,
such as "The Marvelous Book-
worm" and the "Destroyer of the
Mid-night Oil," will be exhibited.
The seller of toy ballons and
vender of rotten peanuts will wake
the echoes with their cries and red
lemonade will slake the college
Mrs. Hine Passes Away
Mrs. (ieo. A. Hine passed away
Monday morning a t about l 0
o'clock, after a weeks' illness.
The deceased was a member of
the Church of Christ, and leaves a
husband and one child to mourn
The funeral services were con-
ducted at 3 o'clock at the Church
of Christ, and interment was made
in the Lexington cemetery Tues-
The many friends of the family
extend their heartfelt sympathy.
Not one person in a hundred,
.•en those best informed, have y

Wealth locked up in the rocks anal
hills of Oklahoma. Estimates made
by those best qualified toexpres- an
opinion in the matter, ore to the ef-
fect that the hew state has mm-*
available fuel than any state in the
I uion. To amount of hw e . il
: deposits is exceeded by few states,
j approximating 1.000.000,00: > tons.
It is impossible to estimate the
amount of oil and gas in the state
but it is believed that at the present
time a relatively small per cent of
the oil territory has been prospected.
The presence of these three fuel pro-
ducts taken in connection with the
immense amounts of > stone, clay,
! asphalt, gypsum, sa.it, irou. ami
other natural products now lying
'dormant, gives assurance that with-
in a comparatively short time, Ok-
lahoma will take front rank among
the manufacturing stati s. Oklaho-
ma is already known for her great
variety of agricultural products.
; Nothing is now needed to establish
! her reputation as a wealthy nianu-
jfacturing commonwealth but the.
! utilization of her natural resources. '
If the plans now being carried on
by the State Geological Survey ina-
i terialize, the state will soon nianu-
' facturc her own products. When
! this is done, the money now being
sent abroad will be kept at home.
The work now being carried on by
the Oklahoma Geological Survey
will do much to encourage the loca-
tion of factories in the State.

They are indeed greatly indebted
to him for the faithful and capable
work he has done for direct legisla-
tion and they will not be slow in
. thanking him for taking the lead
in tho fight against Lorimer of Illi-
nois. Senator Owen's speech was
a clear cut presentation of evidence :
t which indicates Mr. Lorimer's tin-!
| worthiness to hold a seat in the
1 United States Senate. While re-
j publican leaders sought to out-
jockey Senator Owen for the lion-
