HE STANDS FOR JUSTICE
_.In securing Judge C. C Smith of
the 11th judicial district to sit on the
bench here during the absence of
Judge W. L. Eagleton, Norman just-
ly feels proud in getting the services
of a jurist of the skill, knowledge,
and experience in legal matters, that
the Guthrie jurist has.
Judge Smith seems to have a
knack for dispensing justice. He
presides over the court in a fair and
impartial manner, giving a square
deal to everyone concerned, and in
such a way thut even the lowing
party takes no exceptions. In civil
matters the Guthrie jurist is an ar-
bitrator of rare merit, he hears and
determines a case, and hands down
his decision with an accuracy known
only to those better versed in the
legal science. In criminal matters
Judge Smith is considerate but firm,
lenient but yet rigid. He nasses sen-
tence upon the merits of anv par-
ticular case and when considerate ns
have been made, h's opinion is un-
Judge Smith has heard three mur-
der cases and a multitude of import-
ant civil matters while on the benh
here this time and the court records
in each case bear out these facts.
Judge Smith is the democratic
nominee for District luduc in Logan
and Payne counties. With the rec-
ord that he has established and with
his enemies conceding him to be
one of the best judges in the state
his friends feel assured of a victory.
The members of the Cleveland
Ccunty Bar association are loud in
their praise of Judge Smith. It
would be a loss to the state, the
democratic and republican barristers
alike, to lose the services of so com-
petent a jurist as he has shown him-
self to be. The republicans of Nor-
man showed the right spirit when
they joined in giving Judge Smith
the rousing praise he is unquestion-
ably entitled to. A follower of any
party, regardless of its nature, would
do anything but demean himself by
supporting Judge. Smith,_ and re-
electing him to the position which he
has so openlv and impartially upheld
in name of fairness and justice
to everyone concerned.
"oh lord/hear me"
Times could be better and money
Everybody knows that.
A ?d ritr' in the midst of the trials
and tribulations of present times,
come- a McClain county farmer with
a prayer. Ar. att mpt to better con-
ditions at keasf orarily is the evi-
dent motive .ie man's message.
With hi amission the prayer fol-
Lord, I am only a McClain county
farmer. Thou knowest that when
wheat was $2.00 per bushel and I had
Hour and sugar in the house and cake
and pie every time I wanted it I wa^
not satisfied and voted for a change.
Thou k'nowest that I wore a Harding
badge and a Burson button and was
faithful in all things to the G. O. P.
Even so thou knowest that I believed
in the dawn of a new day and that
wool would advance in price, that
I would get $3.00 'or wheat and 20
cents for my pork. Lord, two years
have gone by never to return and I
am too poor to buy the 'necessary
Rockefeller for my Henry, but still
I wear a Harding badge but it's on
the seat of my overalls. O Lord, I
am thankful for one thing and that is
that Harding has been able to make
jack rabbits taste good in summer
time. I pray thee that thou will
keep them replenished so that I shall
•not want. I am glad, O Lord, that
thou has prospered the railroads and
that they have been able to keep up
their freight when my corn would not
pay the expense of gathering, and I
pray thee that thou will continue to
uphold Mellon that he may be able
to collect for years interest on the
funds of his own bank account, for it
is a righteous course. Teach me to
pray: Our father who art in Wash-
ington, Hardi'ng be his name; his
kingdom come, his will be done even
to beating the soldiers out of a bonus.
Give us each day our daily corn
bread that Wilson tried to make us
eat for two years and Harding had
us eating it in three months, and lead
us not into temptation to vote for a
democrat for president for Hardi-ng
The water trough near the court
house is beinir forgotten. C:\rs have
been selling like hot-cakes in Cleve-
land county in the past few vears as
in other parts of the state, and yet
horses are not a thing of the past.
Every farmer in this county does
not cc-me to town in a car. Many
of them who own autos bring fartn
products to Norman to sell on the
streets. Many drive here in wagons
and buggies when they come to shop
or to visit.
In the past the farmers have been
watering their stock at the trough
near the courthouse, when they
drove their teams to. town. Only
recently this trough has been for-
gotten. No water has been kept in
it for several weeks
Farmers complained Saturday of
not having a olace to carry their
stock to water. There is plenty of
water in Norman and the farmers
of the county should share in its use.
Turning the water on at the public
water trough is a most insignificant
thing, in a way, and yet to be de-
prived of such a watering place
means more than a little to any one
having teams in the city. Some one's
loafing on the job.
Wake up! After all, its the little
things that count.

ERECTED BY NORMAN
Eight Local Concerns Took Hand
In Build>ng One Of Best Shows
All work on the Billings theatre
was completed Saturday night with
the exception of a few interior im-
provements, the management of the
playhouse announced Saturday.
All materials and labor used in the
construction of the theatre was pro-
cured in Norman in so far as pos-
sible and the manner in which the
corts.truttion of the building was
handled and the equipping «of the
place carried on is an attribute to
the Norman businesses who took
part in the completion of the show.
Josh Billings, owner and manager of
the show, declared Saturday.
R. L. Pierson and Sons of this
city had charge of all contracting
work on the new theatre. These
Norman contractors assumed charge
of the contracting end of the big job
early in the summer.
The jolly brothers to whom the
plastering contract was let have only
recently completed the work there.
I hey declare that the finishing job is
one of the best in the city and those
wiio have viewed the building agree
The interior and exterior painting
work ol l\ S. Davis, local artist, is
declared by those who have inspect-
ed the new tlnatre to be a class of
workmanship that any much larger
city could well boast of having. Mr.
Davis was in charge" of all the dec-
: orating and paintin.r and did much
of the work himself.
The electrical wiring of the Bil-
lings theatre was done by the lilack-
ert Electric company of this city.
The electrical contract called for not
only the wiring but the electric light-
ing effects in the theatre as.well.
I he wiring of a picture house is said
by experts to he one of the hardest
kinds of electrical jobs that can be
| attempted. Billings believes his
show has as good electrical equip-
ment as any house in this part of the
The sheet metal work on the new
theatre was done by Walsh and Wit-
tie and is said b\ Mr. Billings to be
excellent. The Marquis front which
was done by the sheet metal workers
has been the source of no small
amount of praise The interior work
has been dompleted.
The seats in the new Billings thra-
trc were probably selected with
more care than anv other one acces-
sory, the management stated. All
seats were furnished by the Meyer
and Meyer furniture company and:
are said to be the best on the mar-
ket. In addition to this the Meyer
and Meyer company placed all oth-
er furniture, draperies, and liueoleum
used by Mr. hillings.
Hardware furnishings were sup-
plied by the Lewis and Taylor hard-
ware company. These supplies while
not as conspicious as many other
things used in the theatre were elect-
ed with the same care and demand-
ed 110 small part of the attention of
the etjnippers of tlie place.

by the .McCoy Heating company.

"Truby Photos Are the Best"
asked Sir Hearty
d the night-watch-
girl, who felt she
should at least explain whnn she had
spoken, "you all made so much noise,
mid you. Mr. Night Watchman, spoke
of your night stick. 1 supposed you
were guarding the hotel and thut you
were having trouble with these people.
Sir Hearty Owl in Ury spoke of you us
doubtless having trouble."
"That's so. 1 did," said Sir Hearty
Cordiality, laughing hard. K very one
else was laughing.
"Of course you misunderstood me.

"To protect the hotel and its prop-

"Oh no, oh no," said the night-watch-
man. And then turning to Sir Hearty

"You toll them while I see that
these newcomers are served with
soup," said Sir Hearty Cordiality. And
as he said so he beckoned to the new-
comers to sit dowfi, ami the table
once more seemed to grow so that
there was plenty of room for them.
"You spoke of your night-stick," said
the boy, who wanted to hear every-
thing the night-
watchman had to
do. It sounded
like such a dan-
gerous and thrill-
"I'm afraid I'll
you," said the
night - watchman,

think I'll be a sur-
prise to you. I
look mild enough,
and that doubt-

"Well. I am on the different roofs
and around the hotel at night to urge
people to accept our hospitality. I am
not guarding the property, I am ask-
ing folks and passers-by and friends
to put up here for i*< night. I'm see-
ing that folks aren't left out in the
cold. And if by any chance we should
get tilled up here-—though the hotel
is enormous and it can grow, too—
there is always a cottaue or two along
the road which will help out.
