been quarreling for some time. The
Whiteker boy will probably die.
The weather h is been quite caper-
ish and changeable this week. We
have had hot waves, cold waves, hail,
rain and oodles of wind. During Wed-
nesday afternoon the mercury run up
as high as 96 in a fair test, and that
niggt would have produced frost had
the sky been clear. Today was quite

Yesterday Dr. Sam Evans purchased
lots 23, 24, 25 and 20, block 23, Jolly-
ville addition, corner of Elm and i-th
streets, the Iierndon homestead op-
posite the Isenberg home in Ken-
wood. Consideration $2100. It is one
of the best improved homes in the
city in the way of fruit and forest
trees. Dr. Evans and family will
take possession in a few days: Mr.

Our citizens, generally speaking,
know very little concerning the
Frantz Pressed Brick P^ant of this
city. Last year Mr. Edmund Frantz
expended *10.000 in establishing this
plant and paid out $400 per week in
wages for help. Today he employs a
large force of men and his week y
pay roll exceeds $500.
He is now engaged in puting in im-
proved machinery for the purpose of
crushing the shale rock, of which the
brick are composed, and one of the
celebrated Chicago patent brick kilns
He expects to spend $15,000 in these
improvements as fast as^the machin-
ery can be secured. Today he showed
a Wave reporter a sample of his
brick shale burnt into as fine a little
hard brick as has ever been produced
The color of the perfected Irantz
pressed brick will be a beautiful dark
brown, something odd from any other
brick ever produced in the world.
The Frantz brick yards are alieady

Ex-Governor Barnes called Flynn
a "puppet" in his speech at Okla-
homa City. Democrats have applied
this term several times, but Barnes
is the first republican that had the
temeritv to so declare himself
Barnes might not have been so bold
if Flynn had been present making
goo-goo eves at him. Following our
national president, Commander Fer-
guson should seal the lips of Brlg-
adler'General Barnes, else he may be
sent "to capture our Colonel Cross.
°VThe WAVE speaks of these things
simply to show the progress and thrif t
ot the Eijid business men and to tell
the people what is going on so that
they may know the importance of
their own town. When you are out
driving go down to the Frantz yards
and take a look at them. If you have
never visited the yards you will not
only be astonished but much en-
couraged in the ifuture of the city.

Bob on Women.
Bob Burdette pays the following
tribute to woman: "True she can-
not sharpen a pencil outside of com-
mercial circles; she can't tie a pack-
age to look like anything save a
crooked cross section of chaos: but,
land of miracles, see what she can do
with a pin! She can't walk so many
miles around a pool table with noth-
ing to drink, but she can walk all
night with a fretful baby. She can
ride all night without going into the
smokingcar to get rest and get away
from the children. The can enjoy an
evening at home without smoking
half a dozen cigars. She can endure
the distraction of of a house full o
children, all day, while her husband
sends them to bed before he has been
home an hour. A boy with a sister is
I fortunate; a fellow with a cousin to be
envied; a young mail with a sweet-
heart is happy; and he who has a
good wife is blessed more than alls
A great many citizens are tapping
the city water mains expecting to
use the water for irrigating purposes.
The city authorities will soon dis-
cover that if the water is used for
sprinkling lawns they will have to
have a larger water supply. Ihe
Heiiry-Gannon well will not furnish
much water for such purpose during
July and August unless they should
prove to be wetternionths than usual.
The city council should develop the
spring* down on South Central park
for the purpose of ascertaining how
much water can be procured there,
which could be piped to the works at
very little expense through the use
of earthen piping. During the dig-
est time last summer Mr. George V.
Mental and the writer investigated
the fiow of water from these springs
and we found water enough to fill a
(1 inch pipe, natural flow. The coun-
cil has heretofore overlooked the im-
portance of these springs in the way
of enlarging the water supply. It Is
the .cheapest opportunity *ln sight to
increase the water supply.
Messrs. J. Meibergen, Fred Wen-
ner and Otto A Sbuttee, composing
the Oklahoma World's Fair commis-
sion, are are expected here tomorrow
from St. Louis, where they selected
the site for the Oklahoma building.
The commission expects the next leg-
islature to increase the fair appro-
priation of $50.000.—Leader.

The Oklahoman's who were former-
ly citizens of Indiana will hold a re-
union in Guthrie at the same time the

W S. Whitinghlll of this city has
been invited to deliver an address up-1
on that occasion.
The little jlm crow republican
o-uiers of the country, edited by the
republican bureau at Washington,
are now busily engaged in telling
their readers that the monstrous
fraud known as the ship subsidy bill
is dead. It is all a delusion and a
snare The bill has simply been laid
aside until after the fall elections are
over- next winter it will pass with a
whoop if the republicans succeed in
M'Atee and Hunter.
The Oklahoman is the authority for
the following: Judge J. L. McAtee
and J. R. Hunter, of Chicago, aie
opening up law offices in the post
office building Oklahoma City. Ihe
gentlemen formerly resided in the
same county of Maryland. Judge
McAtee has many real estate invest-
ments in Oklahoma City and will
make his permanent residence here
The law firm will be one of the strong
est in the territory.
ONLY THREE IN THE CIRCUIT.
Enid Should Have Been In It.
V. M. Tedford, secretary and treas-
urer of the Oklahoma tlacing Associ-
ation, has sent out circulars stating
that the circuit will be as follows:
Opening at Newkirk September 1 to
G inclusive; Oklahoma City, Septem-
ber 8 tfl 13 Inclusive; Shawnee, Sep-
tember 15 to 20 inclusive. There are
only three towns in the circuit, but
1 they offer $25,000 in purses with the
proper guarantee. Ten of the pursgs
will be tor $(100 each and the entries
will close July 15.
Why of course, the Wave is ready
to publish the announcements of can-
didates who desire the nomination for
any office at the hands of the coming
democratic or fusion county conven-
tion. Some times an early announce-
ment introduces a candidate to an
advantage. The people road his name
and discuss his merits. Announce-
ments will be carried in the Wave,
both Drfily and Weekly, until the day
of the convention for $5 cash.

"Great are the works of God" but
the republican party beats it." The
above is the sum and substance of the
talk of the average republican pa-
per. War, famine and the other
misfortunes of Europe has raised the
prices of nearly everything but la-
bor; then again the blessings of an
allwise God in the way of mois-
ture for growing crops has made Ok-
lahoma most prosperous for four or
five years. The republican partv
