Cotton prices are quite erratic. One
day they'll be "on," and the next day
be "off"—but are always ranging
around |25.50 to $26.50. Yesterday
prices ranged around $26.50 in the
bale, with $10.10 for seed cotton. The
farmers are certainly reaping their
harvest this year and the Transcript
congratulates them on that fact.
Unchanged" is all the news that
' comes concerning Mrs. L. J. Edward's
' condition. She still lingers, with a very
slight hold on life, and is gradually
growing weaker. The change may
1 come at any time. It is said that the
'saying "While there's life there's
| hope" is especially applicable to her
[ailment, and that there might be a
1 chance for her, but it is very slight.

A farewell party was given Miss
Dors Dean Childress on Monday even-
ing by Miss Kattie Nelms and Fred-
erika Fitch at the home of the latter.
Dainty refreshments were served to
eighteen of Miss Childress' friends.
"University Night" brought out a
splendid delegation of students to the
evangelistic service at the Armory
last night, who occupied a special sec-
tion reserved for them. The hall was
'handsomely decorated with pennants
'and festoons in the Oklahoma colors,
and the red and white lent a cheerful
note to the bare walls and rafters of
the Armory. At Prof. Brown's request
they sang the Oklahoma college songs
and also did so well on the chorus of
one of the Tabernacle songs that they
were one and all invited to join the
Tabernacle chorus during the re-
mainder of the meetings.
Evangelist Lowry's message was on
the text, "Be ready always to give
an answer to every man that asketh
you a reason of the hope that is in
you," dnd he presented in a clear
forceful manner a number of reasons
for being a Christian, and at the close
made a personal appeal to the un-
saved giving them reasons "why YOU
should be a Christian." Rev. Lowry's
messages cover so completely the
ground of the subject which he brings
before his audience, that he leaves
no room for argument for the skeptic
or unbeliever. He said last night:
"Too many people in this world are
depending simply upon having their
name on a church record somewhere to
save their souls."
"Mere go-to-churchism is mere go-
"The man wht says I can drink or
let it alone does not let is alone, he
i goes on drinking.
| "Money will never satisfy Uie soul
of any man. You spend the first half
'of your life trying to get somebody
else's money and the elast half of it
trying to keep somebody else from
lotting your money."

elsewhere; a satisfied customer is our best advertisement. We give
more careful attention to details, to quality in merchandise, to value lor

ARE satisfied; that's why we say "satisfaction guaranteed."

A lady on West Main street has
originated a pretty conceit, or rather
applied it in a new and patriotic way.
She has had a spotlight so arranged
that the brilliance of an electric light
is shed upon a larsje flag flying on
her porch so that the passerby is
given a patriotic thrill every time he
passes the residence at night You've
probably seen it at 317 West Main.

The campaign is being made under
the direction of Leonard Bailey of
Oklahoma City. Norman and Ed-
mond have been invited to send their
books in the same car which carries
books from the City.
Advices from Camp Donophan state j
that the best literary works of the j
day will be the most acceptable. Books j
on scientific research, electrical engi- |
neering, text books, histories and
technical works will be of the better j
type for the soldiers to read.
"The American soldier is the most j
intellectual fighting man at the front
today. To keep him so we must supply j
his intellectual desires with the best j
of literature." This is the statement
of Mr. Bailey, who is managing the I
campaign for the Rotarians in Okla- j
A baggage car will be placed on a
siding iu Oklahoma City and from it
a group of 200 automobiles will work.
Each car will carry two boy scouts to
do the collecting and when it is load-
ed "to the guards" it will be sent to
the baggage car, unloaded, and start-
ed out on another trip.
The books from Norman will be sent
to Oklahoma City by express loaded
onto the express car and sent direct
to Camp Doniphan.
