homa, as a day of Thanksgiving.
It is t day that year by year in-
creases :i popularity. At its mention
picturct. of the distant low lying
woods—dr.rk and bare, the snow
wrapped Held, the icy pond and near
it, the unpretentious log house with
its single, curtained window, crowd
the mind. So distinct is it, so real,
that one hears tho frost as again it
splits the close-by ice, the sombre
colored limbs of the trees swing in
solemn rhythm to the scarcely heard
song of the breeze and advancing to
the door, the snow crunches under
the foot and the breath is white in the
crisp, keen air. Entering, for you
are welcome, one sees the plain pine
table and its snowy cloth, the glist-
ening glass and steel, the smoking
turkey .the tureen of cranberry sauce,
the (lull orange colored pies telling ot
their close association with yonder
immaculate cornfield, and around the
board itself, offering up thanks are
mother, father,—the little ones
among whom arc, yourself Ah!
you awaken? Yes, 'twere better so,
for father is old, and mother, she
sleeps far away there in tho hollow.
Tomorrow is Thanksgiving Day.
We all have much to be grateful for;
muoh to he thankful for. And what
of your neighbor? What of the little
ones, neglected and uncared for, if
such exist near you? For the sake of
the trembling, tottering father, for
the sake of the mother who kissed
you and who now sleeps far oil in
another state, for the sake of the lit-
tle ones among tliem you were give of
your means and help make tomorrow
a day of thanksgiving for them also.
Your own thanks will be the more
sincere for tho action.

The city council was called to order
last night by Mayor John M. Brogan,
the entire chosen elect being present.
The ordinance governing the letter-
ing of streets and numbering of
houses was, upon motion of Alder-
man Cutler, referred to the city at-
torney that he might pays upon the
legality of such a measure.
The question of the whereabouts of
the ordinance affixing fees arose. A
still hunt was had, and from alderman
to city attorney, from city attorney to
the chairman of a committee and from
the lutter to another alderman the
question passed of "where is it." The
search availed nothing and the eity
attorney was requested to prepare
another to take its place.
"Water and tire" then engaged the
attention of the council. Alderman
Drake spoke lengthily in support of
tom of tho disease and 1 know it is
the best cough remedy on the mar-
ket. Refer any sufferer to Mrs. >\.

A nice idea that. Have the "may-

Ordinance number 41 will be killed.
The little story paper, miscalled the
Sentinel, is giving advice to "certain
parties in Perry" who write "slander-
ous articles running in certain pa-
pers." No necessity,we think,for com-
menting on this, but we might say
that of course we know it is intended
for The Times, and to further add that
the self-appointed moderator's advice
is not needed; that we, and we only,
outline the policy of The Timeb and
are responsible for it.
i'dki) ti i km; <iod IIL.kss them.
The rush of Perry and Perry's citi-
zens—or some of them will, The
Times is sorry to say, get us into
trouble. We can stand having the
jewelled finger of admiration
pointed at us; we can stand being
written about and quoted throughout
the length and breadth of this coun-
try,and even unto the uttermost parts
of the earth, as being, in push and in
sleepless activity and tireless energy,
a second ('hicago. We can modestly,
yet proudly, review our work of two
brief months and look out upon two
million dollars' worth of substantial
mprovements that house 7.000 people
and over five million dollars' worth of
property, but The Times cannot stand
and see trouble resulting from activ-
ity, like a small hand, overclouding
our serene social and commercial
•ikies without making a protest—and
iience this warning.
So tireless are our business men—or
some of them, so absorbed in plan-
ning, building, selling, discounting or
draving —we care not which, that
memory sometimes sustains a tempor-
ary shock of paralysis, and the girj
jlerk, because unrelieved by the pres-
ence of the "boss," goes hungry,
Do you properly appreciate the i -
jonvenience, the cruelty and the
criminal recklessness thus entailed?
Do you, as a citizen and property -
nolder, fully realize the train of evil
effects upon Perry and this territory
which a continuation or increase of
this forgetfulness will surely bring
.ti,out? We will pass the inconven-
ience and cruelty to the lady. Every-
one knows that ladies cat. This is a
fact that close observation establishes
.jeyond peradventure. Experience
.caches us that a pain in front of one's
Jack, be it in man or woman, and that
pain the result of hunger, is, of all
pains, the greatest pain. More yet,—
it brings on dyspepsia, indigestion and
a host of minor complaints, resulting
in impoverished blood, a weakened
system, an absence of appetite, other
and more complicated sicknesses and
The situation at this writing is not
a happy one to contemplate. A
crude guess says we have 'steen men
to every one of the gentler sex in
this city. This is bad enough, but
added to the trouble we know of, we
invite others that we know not of.
Death means decimation; decimation
again means further decimation and
so on until, and figure it for your-
self, a time arrives when this will be
a community of masculines only.
Nothing to do, no one to chat with,
men would gather in knots and
crowds at tho street corners, and
comment upon the reduced and dim-
inishing number of groceries, meat
markets and bakeries,—for ladies do
eat;—they would observe and discuss
the total absence of millinery and dry
goods stores, they would point at the
empty church and deserted school
house. An era of retrogression
would usurp activity; business of ev-
ery character would fall away and
soon become extinct. Our buildings
would fall into ruins and be-
come home only of the bat and
the owl and our streets and
avenues would grow the weeds and
the flowers of the prairie again.
Gentlemen, don't do it. Look the
future in the face; staringly and
rudely if you will but look at It and
well weigli the question.

anil produced a petition of like im- —
port which vvas signed by 1000 alleged
business men of Perry. Alderman
Friend spoke in favor oi the granting
of a franchise for providing water
to a responsible company and showed j
that the city ownership was
practically out of the question- made1
so by the statutes of oklahoma.
Ordinance No. 17 had its lirsl read i

operate a city telephone system. It,
asks for no oxelusive privileges and j
agrees to furnish the city .

Two measures were introduced.

night of this week.
The city pays a s2S hardware bill
with So3. That is what it did last
night. Two councilmen only Drake
and Weideman, voted against it. AVe
may possibly have something to say
on the mattor later. Gentlemen, it
will pay you to be honest and consci-
entious at all times. By "pay" we
mean it will be policy good policy.

The ladies of Perry last night gave
a social and festival at the Richardson
