much like he was going to get married

A man in town says he does not
read the Ladies' Home Journal and
therefore is not up on etiquette, but
if it says pie should not be eaten with
a knife he would pay 110 attention to
it. All he cares for is to get the pie.
A barber says put a man's hat on
his head for him, and ninety-nine
times out of a hundred he will change
it, no matter how hard you try to put
it on his head just as he would.
A woman in town baked some cake
and forget to put sugar into it. That
day her husband brought company
for dinner, and she was so chagrined
she did not know what to do about it
When the stranger had gone she
told her husband what she thought
of him for bringing company, but as
the door was shut nobody heard what
she said. All he said was that he
could not tell when she was going to
forget to sweeten the cake.

Andy Cillespie has purchased the I
old Mitchell homestead property in
Jonesville on North Independence
Avenue, consisting of three lots, 75
foot front, and a pioneer shack. Con-
sideration, $2,000. Two years ago the
property could have been purchased
It has been announced that the
Hock Island road will build from Fort
Worth in an air line to Galveston, a
distance of 250 miles. The Rock
Island will reach the track mileage
of the Santa Fe in a short time if it
keeps up its present gait of track
Some unconverted scoundrel forged
a check on Walter S Billings, who is
attending St. Marys College in Kan-
sas. The check was drawn on the
Bank of Enid and was for $5 only. It
came to the bank through the mails
but as the signature was not perfect
the bank suspected something. The
writing on the check looked like the
work of a kid.
Guthrie, O. T., March 31.—Guthrie
was visited yesterday by a $250,000 fire
and as a result the State Capital
printing plant, the Hotel Capitol, the
St. James Hotel, the Cammack livery
barns and the Richew general mer-
chandise store are in ruins. Every-
thing in the State Capital plant was
destroyed, including many presses,
machines of every description, lino-
type machines, electric and steam
heating systems, libraries and im-
mense stocks ot supplies.
Frank H. Greer, the owner, states
that the total loss is $100,000. Not a
thing but the mailing lists of the
paper were saved. The loss in the
other buildings will make the entire
loss to the town fully $250,000.
||The fire started at noon in the base-
ment of the State Capital and was
so >n roaring up the elevator shafts.
As no work had been in progress dur-
ing the day, incendiarism is charged.
A high wind was blowing, and it was
impossible to check the (lames.
Assistance was asked of Oklahoma
City, Perry, Kingfisher and other sur-
rounding cities, but the high wind
did the work before help could arrive.
Work will commence at once on the
construction of new buildings for the
State Capital. The paper will be
issued from the Leader plant until a
new building with equipment can be
The lose is the heaviest that ever
came by fire in one day in the city
and in fact is the heaviest that has
I ever visited the territory. All the

individual losses will be heavy.

C. B. Cowles & Company on east
Broadway, have just finished arrang-1
ing the most handsome, as well as
convenient, set of hardware, shelving)
drawer and cases ever brougttlto Enid, j
A sample of the goods kept in the in-
side drawers are arranged in a glass
case in front of the drawers etc.,
m;iking it very convenient for cus-
tomers and also saving much time
for a clerk in waiting on a customer.
It is a very unique labor saving ar-
rangement for a hardware store.
Mr. Will Cook received a letter
from Ernest Woracek, this morn-
ing, which stated that his father
Capt. Woracek was a very sick man
in St. Louis and very little hopes
were entertained for his recovery.
(:apt. Woracek was a prominent citi-
en and business man of Enid in the
early days. He sold his interests here
and departed for St. Louis to live
nearly two years ago. However, his
son writes that his father came home
lately from an extended tour in Cali-
fornia and Utah.
Mr. C. B. Cowles, in the absence of
Mrs. Cowles, left a lamp burning in
his residence, expecting Mr. Moss,
who rooms there to return early in
the evening. Mr. Cowles did not
arrive atlhome until quite late when
he found the house filled with oil
smoke. The oil in the lamp having
exhausted the wick kept up a volume
of smoke. The most peculiar inci-
dent in regard to this occurnnce are
that the wall paper, pot plants and
qu:U" a lot of household goods were
completely ruined by the smoke.
Frank Greer, who suffered a great
loss in the destruction of his large
newspaper plant, the State Capital,
at Guthrie, Sunday, has the sincere
sympathy of the newspaper people of
The loss of the building and print-
ing material is not near all the loss
Mr. Greer will sustain. The sudden
cutting off of his business and the in-
convenience of getting his paper out
in a small shop together with the
worry and trouble of rebuilding and
refurnishing will cost thousands of
dollars. The Commercial Club of
Guthrie met Monday and agreed to
assist Mr. Greer to rebuild his plant.
He said he could not accept any dona-
tions, but would be pleased to accept
a loan of $50,000 to be paid back in
yearly installments in five years at (!
per cent interest. The proposition
was accepted and all the money
| raised in a few hours.
The State Capital will arise from
I the ashes but it will take many days
S and inontHs to get the office in as
I good shape as it was before being
licked up by the cruel llames.
The Altrurian club met Tuesday
evening Aprial 1, at the home of Mrs.
W. O. Cromwell. In answer to roll
call, each member responded with an
original quotation or the last words
of some famous man. Miss Bessie
Burwell then read a book review
which was thoroughly interesting
from beginning to end. She pre-
sented beautifully the story of "Gran-
stark" in her natural charming man-
ner. Miss Myrtle Corbitt next read
a paper on "The Ideal Husband, ' in
which every one was naturally in-
terested. Miss Corbitt gave many
points where-upon our ideas differ
and the great advantage there is in
our ideals not all being the same.
She then pictured vividly the ideal of
one member of the club. The latter
part of the evening was devoted to
the reading and studying of Act V of |
A good story is told on the better
half a couple who went from this city
to spend their honeymoon in Kansas
City. One day the bride, finding that
she needed to purchase a few small
articles, left the young husband and
hotel to go shopping. She returned
shortly and made her way m stairs
to the door she thought opened to
her own room. Knocking gently at
the door: "Honey" she called affect-
ionately, "let me in." No response
came and she knocked again and
called in insinuating tones: "Honey
please let me in." "Madam," ans-
•vered a gruff voice from within.

il & ii & it
The old rookery that housed the
records of the Euid land office and
which was the scene of many a hard
fougfet battle to secure land in the
early days, looks lonesome and de-
serted today. On the fence in front
of it is a sign which reads, '.'For Sale
by W. D. Baker." We all sincerely
hope that the old thing will find a
buyer who will haul it away at once.
It is now an eye-sore to the city. We
wish to forget the old thing and al
the trouble that surrounds it. Take
it away soon. If it cannot be sold
send it down to Skinfisher with the
LOST HIS MARBLES.
Henry Morris, "who was formerly
cook for the Hotel Frantz, has gone
crazy and the officers have him in
charge at his home down in the flats.
He doesn't tell his troubles, but in-
sists in tearing the clothes from his
body. He is a negro.
Rev. Porter's special envoy extra
ordinary from Washinguon arrived
in Enid last Friday evening and quiet
ly departed last night. He did not
inform the Wave as to what he found
out. We presume he uie;ms to tell it

Late Literary Notes.
"What Women Like in Men,"
What Men Like in Women," and
Husbands and Wive*," are the titles
of a series of very interesting papers
by Raiford Pike, the third of which
appears in The Cosmopolitan treats
of Prince Henry's visit, with a series
of beautifully printed photographs,
under the title of "A Clever Emperor
and a Confederation of Nations." F.
Hopkinson Smith, Israel Zangwill,
Bret Hart and Maarten Maartens are
among the other contributor to this
number, which is unusually good in
Bob Neff looks like Tony Pastor of
New York and edits a paper in Black-
well. Bob is noted for being a little
lazy, particularly in the morning. To
excuse himself he spun his spool and
produced the following: "The lark
came up to meet the sun and warbled
forth his lay, the farmer's son took
down his gun and at him blazed away.
The busy bee arose at five and
hummed the meadows o'er, the farm-
er's wife went for his hive and robbed
him of his store. The little ant rose
early, too, his labors to begin; the
greedy swallow flew that way and
took his antship in. O birds, bees and
ants be wise, in proverbs take no
stock: like me refuse to rise till half
past eight o'clock."
Mr. and Mrs. C. E. Okey, of Corning
Iowa are visiting in the city, with the
family of Mr. A. E. Stephenson. Mrs.
Okey is a sister of Mr. Stephenson.
They have expressed much astonish-
ment on the growthof this young city.
They expected to find a villege here,
instead of 32 miles of streets and a
city covering 1370 acres.
•The Best Is the Cheapest."
The Shawnee Herald of last week
gives one Apperson, who goes around
getting up special "trade editions"
or "souvenir editions" of such news-
papers as will permit him to do so,
about the brownest roast we have
seen lately. We don't know any-
thing about this particular case, but
we do know that the so-called special
editions gotten up by men who go to
towns for that purpose are of no bene-
fit to anybody except the men who
get them up.—Ponca Courier.

Nearly two-thirds of the frontage
of block 13 on Grand Avenue will pre-
sent beautiful new brick buildings be-
fore snow flies, in the early winter of
this year. Two of the buildings will
be three stories high.
The political rights of Kingfisher
have been recognized at last. Bili
Fossett is from Kingfisher, too.
Not how cheap, but how good, it
The twice-a-week Republic is not
as cheap as are some so-called news-
papers. But it is as cheap as it is
>ossible to sell a first-class newspaper,
f prints all the news that is worth
printing. If you read it all the year
round, you are posted on all the im-
portant and interesting affairs of-the
world. It is the best and most relia-
ble newspaper that money and brains
can produce—and those should be the
distinguishing traits of the newspaper
that is designed to be read by all
members of the family.
Subscription price, $1 a year. Any
newsdealer, newspaper or postmaster
will receive your subscription, or you
may mail it direct to

Graduates' an Teachers' F.xamnaton
Miss Lou Bates, the county super-
intendent, of schools, requested the
Wave to state that both the teach-
ers and common school graduate ex-
amination would take place on Thurs-
day and Friday, April 24 and 25,
1002. The teachers examination and
the examination of the graduates ol
'.he Enid school district, and those
districts close in, will occur in the
district court room in the court house
in Enid on said dates. Provisions
will be made for the examination of
the graduates of other district pub-
lic schools throughout the county at
various places on the same dates-
No school in the county will be
neglected in this respect.
Miss Bates is determined to treat
all schools in the county fairly in
these examinations and special pains
will be taken to facilitate the ad-
vancement of the common schools of
the conniy. 3-12 dltw.lt
