Mrs. C. H. Hager, wiie of the pro-

his printing establishment does three-
fourths of the printing of the city of
Enid. WTe had thought the Wave
was doing about half the printing of
the city outsi'leof boiler press rp-
ports and other boiler plate matter,
but Pete never lies; he simply talks
nonsense and ridiculousness. In fact
if it was not for the support of the
Citizens bank grafters and others the

One Ground Hog Shadow.
Last Thursday, ground hog day,
Hellroaring Ha\eagoodtime Watkins
was walking down to the Elk parlors
to enjoy himself for the day as usual
when a snap shot of old sol portrayed
his shadow on the pure white snow.
He immediately crawled into bis

The lawyers who are trying to
save his precious carcas from the
penitentiary argued a motion to dis-
miss the indictments against Watt,
before Judge Burwell in the District
Court Saturday. After a lonj argu-
ment the Judge decided that the in-
dictments against Watkins were not
in the least defective and that he
would have to stand trial. Saturday
night, Watt saw his shadow again in
his dreams and the hand writing on
the wall of his slumbering thoughts

The Proposed Prospecting.
The Wave is not going to submit
any particular plan of Jits own in the
matter of sinking prospect holes into
the earth for gas, oil, coal or gold,
□either will it knock the plans of
others. Any old way to accomplish
the object in view, outside of making
it a public debt.
There are at least lf>0 men in this
town who can afford to give 1100 each
to make this test, which would raise a
fund of $15,000. There are 100 men wh„
could spare $50 each and several hun-
dred who could spare from $5 to $25.
It should not take long to raise a
fund of $20,000 in such an important
enterprise. This community should
know whether it nas anything of
value slumbering in the bowles of the
earth beneath and the sooner the test
is made the better. Procrastination
is the thief of time; let the people of
Enid act now. Attend the Commer-
cial Club meetings and help push this
The Forlorn Hspe.
Nearly all the newspapers of the
territory, and the politicians, seem
to be quite sure that the statehood
bill will pass. The Wave cannot feel
so sanguine. It may pass the Senate
in a very much amended form tomor-
row, but then it must go to a confer-
ence committee and then to the house
where gobs and gobs of argument
will come up and the first thing
know the 4th of March will be here
with the bill still hanging in one
house or the other; then all will h
over for this h«at. Only 2:! days un

A Modern Merchant.
A merchant in a neighboring town
states that his advertising co3ts him
54 cents for every $100 worth of goods
sold. He uses half a page ior his
business announcement each week
and says that as 'tmg as people reid
newspapers h« will advertise, There
isc man possessed of a good head
Just as soon at- merchants begin to
look on advertising as a blanch of
the business which requires a* much
attention as any part of it, then
advertising pay. Honesty, force,
originality and persistence In adver-
tising makes it a paying Investment.
Don't Patronize Them.
The people who lost their hard
earned money through the Citizen's
bank steal may recover only a small
pwrtlon of their substance, b t there
is one thing they can do: they can
refrain frem patronizing any of the
people responsible for their loss
they tan. forever prevent them from
handling any more of their money
If Bill is not responsible under the
peculiar framingofthe laws tor the
Citizens bank wreck, he is undoubted
ly guilty of criminal negligence in
allowing his name to be used or a
confidence game upon the creduallty
of those who trusted the bank because
his name appeared as president of the
Institution. Bill presumed Is a hidden

Most Successful Firm in America
Opens a Branch House in Kansas City
rE TAKE PLEASURE in announcing the open-
ing of a branch house at Kansas City, Mo.,
where we v. ill carry an elaborate stock of heavy
goods, such as furniture, implements, stoves,
sewing machines, harness, etc. It is our intention to
keep a liberal supply of goods at Kansas City and ship
them out direct to our customers at tributary points.
This venture means a saving of 460 miles of freight
charges to persons living in the West, Southwest and
Northwest. It also means quicker service and lower
prices, as our Kansas City stock is all quoted free on
board the cars at Kansas City.
Where part of a shipment is to be made from Kansas
City and part from Chicago, we prepay the freight charges
ourselves on the Chicago lot as far as Kansas City, so
that our customer only pays freight from the latter point.
We are ever growing. Only 5 years ago we erected
a 12-story building that we thought would serve for all
time, but we now find ourselves crowded out and com-
pelled to seek relief for our ever-expanding business,
"here are reasons for our success—reasons easy to see.
We are treating our trade fairly; shipping honest goods;
keeping prices down to the lowest point; following a
liberal and accommodating policy; avoiding all forns of
trickery and deceit; our methods are open and shove
suspicion of any kind—consequently we are successful-
so successful, in fact, that the 1 J increase in our western
business gives us an opportunity to establish a branch a'
Kansas City in the interest of our patrons in Kansr
Nebraska, the Dakotas, Ckhihorria, Indian Fcrri'rry,
Texas, Missouri, southwestern Iowa, and nil other Ctr-.tas
west of the Rocky Mountains.
We are now printing a catalogue showing tr- r;:-c;
that are constantly carried in stock at Kansas Cr. = . r;ir
catalogue will be sent free to any person living in t>.
territory named above. Kindly fill out the coupon below
and let us send you our Kansas City catalogue. You will
be surprised at the extent of the merchandise we carry
there and at the prices we make. Remember, we pay
freight to Kansas City on all goods ordered from our
Chicago stock to be shipped v/ith goods out of Kansas City
Some day we hope to carry a complete stock of
everything in Kansas City, but for the present let us send
you the catalogue shov/ing the goods that can new be
had, with the transportation charges reduced by A i o miles.
