The county commissioners will meet
Thursday in an adjourned session.
The Quaker doctors have packed up
their medicine cases ami skipped out
for a more sickly neighborhood.
The dear old street sprinkler is

The Perry people do not wish the
Sapulpa line to run to Enid, fearing
that it will cut off the trade they en-
joy from Garfield county.
Messrs Levers & Crouch are pre-
paring to open an ice cream factory
at the bottleing works on south Grand

mamouth ice cream freezer and 80

Kiss, as parsed by a young miss, is
a conjunction, because it connects.
It is a verb because it signifies to act
and to be acted upon. It is a prepo-
sition because it shows the person
kissed is no relation. It is an inter-
jection (at least it sounds like one)
and is a pronoun because it stands for
The city of Enid demonstrated the
fact that she is capable of taking
care of a territorial convention
There were fully a thousand visitors
in that city during the territorial
democratic convention, and the citi-
zens took pirde in seeing that the
great crowd was well taken care of.
No comes the news that the Arkan
sas Valley & Western railroad will
build from Sapulpa to Blackwell in-
stead of Enid. A report came from
Sapulpa to the effect that the con-
tract for the grading of the road has
been let from Sapulpa U Blackwell.
If there is anything in this report
what has the Enid end of this road
been doing? The Sapulpa road would
be preferable to eitner, a road to
Guthrie or Oklahoma City.
The area of the United States in-
cluding Alaska, Hawaii, Porto Rico,
the Phil ppines, Guam and Samoa, is
3,000,822 square miles, or about one-
fourteenth of the land surface of the
earth. The area of "Continental
United States" is 2,970,380 square
miles. The total population of the
United States June 1, 1900, was calcu-
lator at 84,332,069, with a margin of a
million for possible error, owing main-
ly to uncertainty as to the number of
people in the Philippines.

This morning, about 10 o'clock, a
tragedy occurred on the platform
of the Rock Island depot between
Mrs. Mollle Estridge and tile Rev.
Richard Quals, pastor of the
Grace and Chapel colored Baptist
chuj-ch of this city. Quals lives at
Crescent City, but he preaches for
the congregation here twice a month.
It seems that Mrs. Estridge was a
member of the above named church
and that she and her pastor quarreled

Crown and Bridge Workers Will Meet
The Oklahoma Dental association
assembled in the regular annual con-
vention in Guthrie May 5, and 6. The
Wave notices that Dr. F. D. Sparks
of this city, is slated for a speech on
Noncohesive Gold in Combination
with Other Fillings. Now we common
mortals don't know what the doctor
will talk about, but the Wave will
bet th;4 he will make a rip-roaring
talk. Gold is not noncohesive with
silver in the republican party, but
the doctor being a democrat he can
probably unite those two great fel-
lows of long felt wants.

After the cutting the preacher
grabbed his wounded face and re-
treated, bleeding- freely. He was
brought up town in an express wagon
to the office of Dr. Baker, who dressed
his wounds. The -poor parson was
quite weak from the loss of blood
when he arrived. After his wounds
were sewed up he was taken to the
home of Bob Hill,
Mrs. Estridge came up town and
gave herself into the custoday of the
sheriff. Her husband and Vincent
drove away in the buggy but soon ap-
peared at the court house also. Mrs.
Estridge claims that she made the
attack on Quals in defense of her
character and general good reputa-
tion which she claims the preacher
assailed from the pulpit. It is re-
ported that the preacher fell like an
ox, knocked in the head, twice, yet
he did not attempt to strike her.

A DEAD HUSBAND ALIVE.
The Story of Enoch Arden reported in
Real Life Once More.
Over in the Hennessey neighbor-
hood this week was a tragedy that
was bloodless. It was a repetition of
the story of Enoch Arden.
When V^Iiam Hunter enlisted in
the army at the outbreak of the war
with Spain he left a wife at their
home to await his return. He did
not come back but a report from Cu-
ba informed his waiting wife and
friends that he was dead with a
Spanish bullet in his brain.
That was a good while ago and in
the natural course of events the wid-
dow married again, Her husband
was G. T. Comart of Marshal. The
second marriage was as happy as the
first had been. The love of the wife
for a soldier became love for the
other and Mrs. Comart was happy
with her second husband.
The other day a letter came to Mrs.
Hunter announcing that her husband
would be at Hennessey one day this
week. The letter did not seem like
it was real to the widow who had be-
come again a wife. She went to
Hennessey accompanied by her latest
husband, however, and met at the de-
pot her husband who was supposed to
be dead. He had been alive all the
time and holds a commission in the
United States army in the Philippines.
He had returned for his wife, Expan-
nations were made and then a bit of
touching real chivalry was seen. The
husband who was not the husband saw
the situation. He recognized the
proper right of the soldier man. He
loved the woman and perhaps he saw
that i-he still loved the soldier whom
she thought to be dead. In any event
the soldier went to St. Louis yester-
day with his wife, recovered from the
embrace of the husband who she had
taker, because she believed her first
husband to have been dead.
They will go to the Philippines to-
gether and take up a new life that
they left off when he went to the war.
The husband who was not a husband
is left forlorn and alone, with the
cheer taken from his life, with a des-
erted heartstone and a sad heart.
The story is a peculiar one and shows
the strange pranks that fate plays
on the man or the woman whose life
admits of any variation from the
dead level of the common place.
We often think what a world this
would be if the people would give
1 praise unto those to whom praise is
j due and honor unto those whom honor
i is due. We pass on through life ac-
cepting every act of kindness with a
careless thank you or utter indiffer-
ence. We see noble men and women
striving to live ideal lives and never
give them a word of encouragement.
We pass by the industrious worker in
field and in shop and never think that
a word in kindness spoken, or a few
words of praise 'or their efforts would
brighten their labors or make life
more happy for them.
When death cotnes to relieve thein,
then and then only, do we sound their
praises and exalt their virtues. When
our tears, our kisses and loving words
can no longer be heard we pour them
forth without stint and vainlj* regret
that our dead cannot know.
If we could only bring fturselves to
exprese our appreciation of our
friends and neighbors, if we would
only speak a few words of kindness
what a change in life and what a
reseate hue this old world would pre-
sent to all. A word spoken in loving
kindness is worth more to our friends
than all the tears, kisses and flowers
that we can pile upon their graves
when dead. A cheerful word and kind
action will lighten the heavy load of
care and bring peace and joy to the
disheartened when all the most bril-
liant sermons ever delivered fail to
touch one cord of sympathy.
Let cheerful words and loving act-
ions fall, like God's sunlight, upon all
earth's creatures. Put off that frown
from your brow and live as God in-
tended you to live. When you see a
noble action of a friend or stranger
give them a word of praise. Let them
j know that you, at least, appreciate
1 their deeds. A word of cheerfulness,
a glance of approval and a glad smile
J will teach the forlorn and weary tras -
1 eler that life is worth living and that
this can and should be an earthly par
The Guthrie Capital, Washington
correspondent says that J. K. Beau-
champ, J. L. Pancoast of Perry, and
Frank Gillett of El Reno have been
endorsed by Flynn for Associate Jus-
tice of the supreme court of Oklaho-
ma. However, a private letter to a
prominent republican of Enid says
that Conkling, Strang and Gillett
will be appointed.
A man was at the opera house the
other night who was very sleepy.
Some said tie had not tried the ''water
cure " He would go sound to sleep
till the audience would cheer some
good point, and then he would wake
up and look around trying to appear
that he had got the entire drift and
he would also cheer, but was always
a little late. Once he cheered a
death scene, and everybody laughed.
Half a dozen customers were wait-
ing to get shaved. When one of the
barbers said "Next" the last man in
rushed ahead and took the chair and
nobody had the nerve to stop him.
Which shows that the way to get
through the world rapidly is by hav-
ing plenty of nerve.
