score of 25 to 7. The game was
characterized by much rough play-
ing and a slashing attack by both
teams. During the first few min-
utes of the opening quarter the
teams gave evidence of being very
evenly matched, the ball going
back and fourth up the field. Lex"
ington scored just as the quarter
closed kicking goal and giving them
a score of 7 to 0.

ington played together in good style
and added another touchdown.

and in the third quarter put over
two more counters but failed to
kick goal. At the opening of the
last quarter, on the second down
after Purcell had received the ball,

A Checking Account
Ss lour Greatest Measure of Defense
Let nations go on building ships, •
Our bank is your hand of protection.
Defend yourself against waste. Cash is rarely seen save
at the vanishing point. It scatters you know not where.
But you THINK when you write a check. You have a
record of where your money goes. Payments are systema-
tized, expenditures are reduced. Hand out checks in pay-
ment of your bills. They are automatic insurance against
fraud and error. A checking account protects you against
the loss of money by fire, theft, carelessness, and forgetful-
ness. It means your funds are safe.

Chas. Greemore, President. M. R. Northcutt, Cashier
In last week's Leader it was
stated that S. F. Davenport was
tried and acquitted of the charge
of violating the prohibition law.
The facts were that Mr. Daven-
port's case was dismissed without
coming to trial. When court was
first called the county attorney
publicly dismissed the case on the
grounds of lack of any incriminat-
ing evidence. Mr. Davenport was
fully exonerated 'from any crime
without the case coming to trial.
We make this correction in justice
to Mr, Davenport in order that no
one shall have a false impression.

When Oil Vein Is
Struck Oil Near Blanchard
Reports came to Lexington Tues-
day that oil had been struck Mon-
day afternoon nine miles north of
Blanchard and the report was veri-
fied by an article in Wednesday
The strike was made on a large
tract of oil land under lease by the
Zelma company of Oklahoma City.
Oil was found at a depth of 600
feet according to II. B. Houghton,
president of the company. Drill-
ing had been going on for a week
with an equipment of casing and
tools sufficient to go down 2000
feet if necessary.
The exact location of the well is
section 16, township 9, range 4
west, on the Redmond farm lying a
few miles across the Canadian
The news has caused a great
deal of excitement among oil men
who are of the opinion that a good
field may be developed.
Through the fact that oil has
been found so close to Lexington,
operations will in all probability
lie taken up here at once.
