"UNWRITTEN LAW" IS NIL
SAYS SUPREME COURT
The so-called "unwritten law,"
the right to avenge a wrong done
to a female member of one's fami-
ly by killing the wrong doer does
not exist in this state, says the
Criminal Court of Appeals in af-
firming the life sentence of a
man from Cleveland county, who
had killed a man, it was said, had
mistreated a member of the slay-
er's family. The decision was im-
portant, for the reason that sev-
eral murder aases in Oklahoma
have hinged on this point, the
defendants pleading the unwritten
law asa defence. Th decision
was given in the January case.
what can be done
by building companies
In an article in the current is-
sue of the American Lumberman,
E. L. Aurelius, of the Aurelius-
Swanson company of Oklahoma
City, tells what can be done by
such companies in the way of
building residences and selling
them on the monthly payment
plan. He says he began business
in Oklahoma City ten years ago
with an initial capital of $500,
and now his company is capital-
ized at $500,000 and its lumber
yard has $150,000 in material. It
has built hundreds of houses in
Oklahoma City and several in
Norman and other cities of the
What Aurelius has done in this
line can be done by others. There
is a splendid opening in Norman
for such an enterprise, and the
parties who get in on the jM-ound
floor will certainly reap a rich re-
ward. There is a market in Nor-
man for every home that can be
erected 011 this plan, for monthly
payments would mean little mors
than the usual rental.

ing represented, especially Pur- |
i cell and from "over the river" ,
I from which localities the com J
j mittees have assurances of large j
I crowds and attendance of all the ,
soldiers. Reports from all parts I
of Cleveland county are that great
interest is being taken in the eel- j
ebration, and every former Cleve-
land county soldier will be pres-
ent to accept the hospitality of
"The University City." Every-
thing will be free' to the soldier
in uniform, and the celebration is
especially for him; to welcome
him home with glad acclaim and
to show the appreciation of their
fellow-citizens for their services.
The Indians are coming in from
the eastern part of the county in
great numbers and arrangements
will be made to have them give
some of their ceremonial dances.
Every arrangement has been
made to give the aeroplanes from
Fort Sill and Dewey, Okla., and
other points a good landing place
and show the airmen every cour-
tesy. The landing place will not
be far from the celebration
grounds, and the audiences may
be sure of some grand and lofty
flying. Major L. D. Abney will
be one of the flyers, and there
will be several government flyers
from Fort Sill. These exhibitions
alone will be worth going many
miles to see.
The committee on the parade
on July 4th are completing ar-
rangements, and promise some
great stunts and fine features.
One attractive feature will be the
decorated automobiles. It is ex-
pected there will be hundreds of
them in line. Another feature will
be the soldiers, who will be in line
in large numbers. Many attrac-
tive floats by the business firms
will also be a part of this attrac-
The celebration grounds will be
at the University, on Boyd Field
and adjacent thereto, and there
will be a hundred and one attrac-
tions there, the committee on con-
cessions promising some great
and pleasing entertainments.
There'll be Military Revue, Band
Concerts, Speaking, polo games,
races of all descriptions, baseball
games, dancing, fireworks, big
picnic dinner, merry go rounds,
aeroplane flights, and a hundred
and one other entertainments.
Make your arrangements to
come to Norman on that great
day. See advertisement in this
issue and watch out for future
announcements. Tell your friends
about it, and write to former

Get Carnegie to
Give Pipe Organ
Rev. G. J. Rousseau is now ne-
gotiating with the celebrated
multi-millionaire, Andrew Car-
negie, with the thought of having
that gentleman present the Nor-
man Baptist church with a $10,-
000 pipe organ, and those who are
conversant with Mr. Rousseau's
success in getting things he goes
after think it "dollars to dough-
nuts" that he will succeed in this
•ndeavor. Mr. Carnegie is noted
for his generosity to churches of
all denominations along all lines,
and the facts concerning the new
Baptist church at "The University
City" have been put up to him so
strongly that he is said to be con-
sidering it very favorably.
Architects are being consulted
by the committees as to proper
plans and specifications for the
new building, and it is thought
everything will be ready soon to
