Death of Mrs. W. N. Thomas:
Mrs. Guy Y. Williams received the
sad news this morning of the' death
of her mother, Mrs. \\ N. Thomas,
which occurred at Seatle, Wash.,
on Tuesday, Jan. 7th, where she
was making her home with her son.
She was some GO years of age, and
death jvas caused by paralysis.
Mrs. Thomas formerly lived in |
Norman and had many friends in
this city who will regret her death
and extend earnest sympathies to j
Mrs. Williams. Mr. Thomas died
some years ago.
In President Wilson's first ad-
dress in London, he spoke of his
gratitude "for the hearty welcome
you gave me and Mrs. Wilson." In
all subsequent speeches, notes the
Wichita Eagle, he said it "Mrs.
Wilson and me." So the Eagle
guesses she heard it the first time.
No Poultry Show: "Owing to
the extremely bad weather and bad
loads it is probable tuere w.il uj
no Cleveland County Poultry show
this year," says Ben Bartholomew,
prominent chicken fancier. The j
shows are being cut out in almost
every county in the state this year,
and where held, are not provin
very successful. In Oklahoma
county, for instance, where a poul-
try show is now being held, there
is only nineteen entries and very
little interest taken
J. A. Fletcher, who established
the first telephone system in Nor-
man, is here today from Tulsa,
where he has sold out his business
and is on his way to California, to
visit D. B. Wynne and Fred Card-
er, Sr., at Ontario. Wynne is now-
city clerk at Ontario.

LAUDER'S THRIFT RULES
Harry Lauder, the famous
Scotch singer, who has made a for-
tune and knows how to keep it,
has explained the rules which he
followed in carrying out his native
thrift. They are all very sage ad
vice and well to be remembered by
young men of today:
Behave yourself toward your
purse as you would toward your
View the reckless spending of
money as criminal and shun the
company of the reckless spender.
Dress neatly but not lavishly.
Take your amusements judicious-
ly; you will enjoy them better.
Don't throw away the crusts—
eat them. They are as nutrious as
It is more exhiliration to feel
money in your pocket than beer in

quarters to make a dollar and only
twenty-five cents to make a quar-

Premier Clemenceau is holding
out for a new quadruple alliance to
consist of France, Great Britain,
Italy and the United States, which
shall in effect, challenge the cen-
tral powers and Russia t0 a con-
test for world dominion.
Allied statesmen are in some re-
spects inclined to follow France's
lead in this matter. The Paris de-
bates, therefore, will find America
and Great Britain representing one
viewpoint and the Latin countries
another. The Latin's cannot win, |
however, because neither Ameri-
can nor British public opinion
would sanction a return to the bal-
ance of power diplomacy.
If France and Italy block the |
creation of a league of nations the
alternative will be America's re-
tirement from co-operation of the
affairs of continental Europe and
to a resumption of her former po-
sition, described by Englishmen as
"one of splendid isolation."
This would be a very unwelcome
development for France and Italy.
It may well endanger their own fu-
ture development. In the end,
therefore, the Latin nations will
probably allow themselves to be
convinced on the advantages of a
league of nations and a non-imper-
