THE ATCHISON, TOPEKA AND SANTA FE RAILWAY COMPANY
Office of General Superintendent
Newton, Kansas, June 19th, 1913.
City of Norman,
Effective the first day of July, 1910, there was entered into by yourself
and The Atchison Topeka and Santa Fe Railway Company, a lease covering
a portion of the Railway Company's station grounds at Norman, Oklahoma,
said lease "bearing the Railway Compny's Secretary's lease number 26690.
This is to advise that it is the desire of the Railway Company to cancel
this lease effective thirty days from date hereof. Kindly arrange to have
that portion of the right of way covered by the above numbered lease vacated
at the expiration of the thirty days. Yours truly.
E. RAYMOND, General Superintendent
I have served the above notice on the Mayor of the City of Norman, this
22nd day of June, 10:45 a. m., 1915. J. J. BAKER, Agent.
This acknowledges service of notice covering cancellation of lease bear-
ing number 26690. L. C. LINDSAY, Mayor.
Compliments of the Civic Committee of the
Norman Chamber of Commerce.

SEBE HOWRY OPTIMISTIC
ANOTHER THOUGHT ON BRYXN
Sebe Howry got his 170 acres of
wheat in shock last night. It took two
binders four days, working every
minute of daylight, to do it, but he's
got it done. He will thresh it at
once, but thinks he will not sell at
present. Ruling prices for wheat to-
day range around 85 cents, and he
feels he can beat that bv holding a
while He believes the 170 acres will
average more than 25 bushels per
acre. He has about 35 acres of fine
oats almost ready to cut.
Capt. T. J. Johnson springs this one:
Bryan poses as the greatest Demo-
crat of the age.
A fundamental rule of Democracy
is that "the majority shall rule."
Mr. Bryan as a member of the cabi-
net was in the minority in the natio
of one to ten.
It would seem Mr. Bryan's egotism
overbalanced his democracy in the
same ratio, when he set up his dictum
against the views of the President and
the other members of the cabinet.

the trial it. was rumored a witness for
the defense, one not then known,
would be produced to swear that he
saw Grace Goode put a pocket book
into her stocking. Monroe's claim was
that he lost, $800 in a pocketbook in
the resort, and the importance of this
testimony would be very great if it
could be verified.
It. was brought out during Phillips"
•25 examination that he formerly lived in
Norman. He was quite well known
.25' here as a traveling man for Swift 4
Co., of Oklahoma City, and lived on
2g West Comanche, movinc from here to
Oklahoma City with his family a year
j or more ago. It is rumored that d -

.25| ma City this week endeavoring to get
a line on his activities here and his
■>5 reputation for truth and veracity in
I this locality. Little is known of hra
, here, as he did not spend much time in
Norman, being in and out as a travel-
•25 ing salesman As far as known he al-
.40 ways conducted himself properly here.
The prosecution in the Monroe trial
" J seems to have made out a strong case
! against him, and the least he can

AN INTERESTING CASE
For the past ten days, Judge Jas.
M. Gresham has been acting as referee
in the case of Turk vs. Page, which
has been in the courts for something
like twenty years and has ran the
gamut from lower to higher courts,
and cost each of the litigants several
times what the property in contro-
versy is worth. The case involves the
ownership of a tract of land near
Moore, and in its ramifications pre-
sent numerous fine points in law and
knotty problems which the honorable
referee is having difficulty in crack-
ing. A number of eminent lawyers
are retained on both sides, and every

for another "Dollar Day" or some-

The attention of people in Norman
renting rooms to students is called to
the fact that the University regula-
tions prohibit keeping both men an 1
women in the same house as roomers.
There are no exceptions to this rule,
except in the case of married people.
There is no objection to giving meals
to both men and women.

3 in the wire can be arranged in thi
way so as to reduce them to half the
size. Place a piece of fine mesh wire
six inches from the bottom for a floor
or grate to put the paper on. The ob-
jectior, -1 me one made that the wind ai d may-
will blow them about, has 110 force, velopment
for they are heavy enough for all or-
dinary Oklahoma breezes. Two ad-
joining firms could have one in part-

Here's hoping the paper nuisance will
be overcome and in this way add
greatly to the appearance and'safety
of our town.
