TO THE FARMERS AND
STOCK RAISERS OF
M'CLAIM AND CLEVE-
Wienies Whine Out Dreadful Tale
Of Hounds Killed by Dog-C atcnei
It is to be sincerely hoped that J
you will not allow fine thorough-
bred Hereford stock that is to he
sold at public sale on next lues-
day hy Smith and Graves at tht>ir
ranch north of Norman to he dis-
persed to other counties of Okla-
homa. but that you will attend the
sale and keep the great majority
of these fine animals in these two
counties. There will he something
like eighty-five head of these white-
faced thoroughbreds sold at this
sale, besides a number of calves
which go with their mothers, and
every one of them ought to be
kept in Cleveland and McClain
The same is true of those sixty
head of Shorthorns from the J. H.
lohnston Chas. Lauer, Austin
Gibbs, Mrs. Mary Gill and P. R.
l.essly herds, which arc to be
sold at public sale in Norman on
Wednesday of next week. Every
one of these animals, too, ought to
be kept at hime.
Read the bills advertising these
sales and note the fine cattle to
' be offered and then make up your
mind to buy one or more.
Wienies cannot bark and howl
the blood-curdling tale of the
slain dogs, but they can whine and
spit in a significant tone when hung
over a camp fire to roast.
Between five and six hundred
dogs, or enough to start a small
meat plant, have been killed by I
Tom Dilbeck, dog catcher, during"
the last eighteen months. Live
tramps of the canine species are
exceedingly scarce now, but where
are the dead ones"'
It is somewhat disappointing to
deny authentically the antient
and beloved tradition that wienies
are made of dog meat, but the evi-
dence is against the legend. "It is
common knowledge that Norman
has no dog cemetery, but there
is al. ays a distant tin can dump
or black hole in the ground where
the carcasses may be disposed of,
and these places have been fre-
quented in the last eighteen
And some of the dogs ensnared
by the official dog executioner
never met death. Their relatives-
it the term is applicable stole
them out of the pound in the city
park while the jailor slept.
Bulldogs, shepherds, collies and,
spitzes shared their fate without
partiality if the necessary dog tax
was not on their collars.
TO NORMAN TAXPAYERS
Do you know that there was
over $8,000 in judgments taken
♦inued the superintendent of water
dep..Uncut, saving the city $1020
per year, also combined the street
commissioner and scavenger, sav-
ing the city $1800 per year.
Rut in order to save it is very
necessary to enforce all city ordi
nances, especially those relating to
the scavenger. Therefore you are
warned to burn all waste paper,
keep all refuse in boxes where they
can be easily obtained. Assist us
as much as possible. A little help
from each and every one will aid
in saving time which means money
! to the city. We want the fr.end-
j ship of every one and cannot have
I it by harsh measures, therefore wf
! sincerely hope you will aid us.

Docause of increased costs in
all departments of the plant, the
Daily Transcript is forced to raise
its advertising rates. Starting
with the November 1st issue, all
future contract space will cost the
advertiser twenty cents per inch,
all trensciant space will be sold for
twenty-five cents per inch, and ad-j
vertising in the Sunday issue will
be thirty cents per inch. j
Labor, stock, rent, machinery,1
and all overhead expenses have
increased to a point where the pres-i
ent rates will not cover the ex-
penses incurred in the production
of a daily newspaper.
The Daily Transcript is consid- ^
cred hy newspaper men all over.
C )klahoma as one of the livest dail-
ies published in any city of its size,
in the entire state. But few pa-
pers cover the news field as thor-
oughly, and but few papers have as
large bona fide circulation in I
proportion to the population as
the Daily Transcript. Norman
and the rural districts near Nor-
man in Cleveland and McClain j
counties are reached by the ad-1
vertisers through the Transcript
each afternoon, Sunday s circula-
tion exceeding the 2000 mark.
But few plants in cities much
larger than Norman arc as fully
equipped to handle a daily news-
paper. In addition to its editorial
staff, the Daily Transcript has two
linotype machines busy every day,
one setting news and the other
working on advertising.
An illustrated advertising news
service, including a stereotyping
machine is now in use in this of- I
fice. A $10,000 Goss Comet Webb
flat-bed press has been ordered
and will be installed on or before
December 1st. This press will
replace two small presses now in
use, which are inadequate to
handle the present business.
In addition to the mechanical
department of the paper, the Daily
Transchipt also maintains an ad-
vertising department for the ser-
vice of its advertisers. Few news-
papers in the state, outside of
some of the dailies in the larger
cities, employ an advertising man
who devotes his entire time to
writing and laying out advertising
Paper and inks have more than
doubled in cost during the last
vear and are still increasing. Help
soared skyward in proportion.
Rents in Norman, due to the sud
den and unexpected growth of
the last few months, have increas-
ed approximately twenty-five per-
It is because all factors that go
toward making a live daily paper,
have increased so rapidly recently
that the Daily Transcript has been
literally forced to advance its ad-
