LUCILLE, THE WAITRESS
tiom and Family Nearly Smoked
Out As a Result.
"It is just one darn thing after
another, when you're building a
house," according to I. M. Jackson.
The remark was called forth by the
fact that the big chimney on his new
residence near the University campus
has to be pulled down and rebuilt
from the ground up.
By some hokus-pokus, the con-
tractors failed to keep to the speci-
fications in building it, with the re-|
suit that they made it about one-
third or one-half smaller than it
should have been, and when fire was
started in the heating plant it smoked
so horribly as to almost drive them
from the home.
So they've taken it down, brick by
brick, and arc rebuilding it. Mr
Jackson thinks, however, it will be
better than even at first contempla-
ted—when they once get it finished.
It is a beautiful home, one of the
finest in the city and built of the
best material and in most workman-
like manner, with hardwood floors
and all the latest improvements. Mr.
and Mrs. Jackson and Carl are now
occupying it and will soon be "at
home" in it to their friends.
Mr. I. G. Short was here from Ok-
lahoma City on Friday looking after
his farm and other interests. He still
owns the farm cornering with the
Boyd section on the southwest and it
is steadily increasing in value. He
has been frequently asked to put a
price on it, but thinks he'll hang on a
little longer. It is probably worth
$150 per acre—or at least he would
probably have no trouble disposing
of it at that figure. Farm lands in
and around Norman are "good stuff'
and increasing in value tvery day.
Stop on your way home from

Mr. Hershal Jackson has arrived
from Abilene, Texas, and will be con-
nected with the I. M. Jackson furni-
ture and undertaking establishment.

brother we can desire nothing better

at me and says:
''How do you like prohibition?'
"Haven't seen it," I says, 'lhaven't
been inside a theatre for a long time.
Any shimmy in it?'
"This guy laughs. 'Say, dearie.' he
says. 'Prohibition ain't a show '

" 'Prohibition is a law,' he says.
"Nachurelly it flops me a little.'
"Well, whaddya take me for—a law-
yer?' I ask.
''Oh, boy!' he chuckles. 'Prohibi-
tion cuts out the booze and all its
relations. It affects the bars.'
" 'Well,' I says, 'Lawyers practice
before the bar, don't they?"
"'I get you, dearie,' he says. You
are trying to be witty."

Look For This Lumber Trade-Mark
The newest trade-marked building; material is lumber. For years it was
thought impossible to trade-mark it. But The Long-Bell Lumber Company
now brands its lumber on the end with the name Long-Bell, as shown in
the above illustration.
This trade-mark stands for over thirty years of lumber manufac-
turing experience, the best of timber, modern mills, and careful grading
which assures uniform high quality.
Home builders recognize the value of our building assistance just as
they recognize "quality lumber," by the brand it bears. Both are available
for ycrur service. Let us serve you.
