Appreciations and BestWishes from Our Business Men
NORMAN BUNDLE LAUNDRY
WILL OPEN MONDAY
The "Model Bundle Laundry," now
Being installed at 575 Elm street, will
open its doors for business Monday
morning, December 29, according to
N. L. Biggs, owner and general mana-
ger. I*ourteen employees will start
Manager Biggs installed the Ideal
laundry and managed it during the
first few months of business. He has
had a number of years of laundry
work experience and understands
thoroughly the needs of the house-
wife, especially the mother who has
a number of children whose clothes
must be washed carefully and quick-
„ '.0ur Krca<est aim," said Mr. Biggs
"will be to give prompt and efficient
service to all Norman citizens who
entrust their work to our care. Only
experienced workmen will be em-
ployed—new help being given special
training and instruction before start-
ing regular work. Our telephone
number will be 743."
Funeral of Chester Calvert
There was a large attendance at
the funeral of Mr. Chester Calvert
the young man killed in the Interur-
ban wreck on Monday, which was
held at the M. E. Church in Moore
on Wednesday afternoon with Rev.
L. H. Havill conducting the services,
and much sympathy was expressed
for the bereaved wife and children
and parents. Mr. Calvert was a mem-
ber of the Church of Christ and a
young man of most exemplary habits
and earnest christian character. In-
terment was made in the Warren
The Transcript understands Mr.
Calvert carried a $2,000 insurance
policy in the Safety First Health in-
surance company, taken out only a
short time ago. The policy also
covered death by accident and had a
double-liability clause whereby he
would be entitled to $4,000 if it can
be shown he was a passenger on the
milk car. It is probable, however, the
company will claim he was an em-
ploye, which would cut the amount
to the original sum—$2,000. It is also
probable his family may get some-
thing from the railway company.

One complete delivery of mail will
be made by the city carriers tomor-
row morning (Christmas Day.)
