Bayes," "The Mayor of Chandler."

Visit to Stroud.
The News man visited Stroud last
Sunday and found it quite an interest-
ing little town, considering that it is
but a few weeks old. Building has
been retarded by the bad weather
which has made it almost impossible
to get building material, and yet there
has been a great deal of building
done. So far the buildings are all of
wood and are rather small, but some
brick and stone buildings will be erec-
ted soon. A large hotel is being built,
and many houses are being moved
oyer from the old town, one mile west4
The greater number of Stroud's busi-
ness men seem to hail from Oklahoma
City and Shawnee, many of them still
retaining their interest in those cities.
Stroud will be a good business point
and a credit to Lincoln eountv.
