Harry Irwin, the 17-year old son of
Judge and Mrs. C. F. Irwin, died at
the family residence on South Barker,

Young Irwin was a bright lad and
full of energy. He held a position as
telegraph operator at Chickasha,
where he was well liked, and his
future seemed bright aad iull of great
promise, but the angel of death hover-
ed near and called him to his last
resting place in spite of the best medi-
cal aid and the tender ur ing of fond
parents. Harry bad not been well since
about the first of June, but he was am-
bitious and aside from an occasional
Tisit home, he kept at his work, until
about four weeks ago when he came
home to sick too return. The family

The Globe last Saturday contain-
ed another howl from S. G. Hum-
phreys. This fellow dies hard, but
he is dying just the same. He has
dropped from three columns to a
quarter of a column and he is letting
up on Leeper and the balance of the
ticket, and now pays his respects to
the editor of this paper. Brother
Humphreys suggests that we know
what it is to be sat on, "having once
ran for county attorney and failed."
True, but it is not necessary for our
friend Humphreys to consult us in
order to know how a fellow feels
when he lias been ''sat on." Our
dear brother has been "sat on'
three or four times in the past two
years and a half. He was elected
president of the El Reno Commercial
Club by a membership of something
like 130 or 110, and lie pleased them
so well that in less than two months
he was unable to get a quorum to-
gether to receive bis resignation. A
few months later lie contracted a de-
sire to represent Canadian county in
the legislature, but the people "sat
on him" two to one in favor of Geo.
W. Bellamy. Again he went before
the people of the county with a bond
proposition to build a court house in
front of his hotel property and the
people "sat on him" so hard that in
some precincts there were not votes
enough cast to spoil a tally sheet.
The fact of it is that our friend has
been "sat on" so frequently and so
hard since he came to El Reno that
we are surprised that he interrogates
us to know how a fellow feels who
has been "sat on."
Brother Humphreys says in his
last epistle that he is willing to get
out of the democratic party councils
and stay out if they will only kick
us out. We fear that this desire of
his will hardly be gratified, as the
democrats at the last primary elec-
tion commissioned us to continue as
a member of the central committee,
which will make it unnecessary f r
us to rustle a proxy, as he has been
doing during the past few months,
in order to sit in the party councils.
We have no disposition to read Bro-
ther Humphreys out of the demo-
cratic pary. Ou the contrary be
affords us dead-oodles of fun and we
want him to hang on to the willows.
We would advise him, however, to
go "away back and sit down" and
keep still until after the election.
Classen the Apostate.
Nearly every democratic paper
j in Oklahoma is publishing the state-j
nieut that A. II. Classen, Register'
of the Oklahoma City laid olllce
has come out in favor of single state-1
hood in opposition to his party
platform. They say that he is to be
commeuded for his bold and states-
manlike view of the situation.
When the fact is made known to
the public that Mr. Classen has
grown rich by speculating in real
estate in Oklahoma City and that he
now owns scores of lots and business
blocks all ovor the city and that he
has gobbled up a contested claim
ad jacent to the city and converted
it into town lots which are now on
the market, explaius bis views and
narrows his "broad, statesmanlike
view" down to a hair line which
bounds his "personal greed. He is
for single stateshood just like every
other property owner of Oklahoma
City is for single stateshood, because
it encliances the chances of
Oklahoma City of becoming the
capital of the future state, and for
the life of us we cannot see where a
democratic paper can find any con-
[ solation in publishing the fact of bis
conversion unless it is because

cratic platform loves company.

C. T. Frock, a claim holder located
six miles west of Bridgeport, drove in-
to town yesterday and camped in the
wagon yard west ef the Kerfoot hotel.
During the night hii pockets were
picked and $28 taken from him. Of
this amount $10 was in gold, a pocket
piece. Mr. Frock reported the case
with his suspicions to the officers.
One Carl Gormely, a roustabout, was
arrested and the gold piece found on
his person. He had his trial before

It will be seen by her announce-
ment card in today's paper the
accomplished and successful teacher
of voice. Mrs. Rose W. Bruchmann
will resume her vocal class Sept 22.
Mrs. Bruchmann needs no introduc-
tion to this appreciative community.
The 19th of July last she completed
one of the most successful teaching
seasons it was ever the lot of a teacher
to enjoy. Added to her natural abil-
ity she has bad the finest instruction
in tone building, voice placing and
the art of singing. One of her teachers
being the great Mmme. Cappiana. A
talk with one of the pupils who studied
with Mrs. Bruchmann the past season,
will convince vou that she can accom-
plish wonders with a naturally good
voice and bring out a thin weak voioe
in a surprising manner. As Mrs. Bruch-
mann's voice is a dramatic soprano
in a high state of cultivation, having
a range of three octaves, it will be
easy to understand one of the reason*
of her phenominal success with either
ma'e or female voices. She sings as
high as a Lyric Soprano or as low aa
a Basso. We feel proud to know that
we have here with us one of the be«a
instructors in ihe beautiful art of sing-
ing, and we know her class will soon
be filled with enthusiastic students -
