TO TEST MEANING
OF ENABLING ACT.
Claremore, Okla., Sept. 3.—Suit is
to be brought by the friends of the
Eastern University Preparatory
school, situated in this city, to test
the meaning of the enabling act rel-
ative to the distribution of the funds
arising from section 13 and the sale
of the new college lands, which in
the past has been given over to the
school at Tonkawa. The attorney
general in a decision recently rend-
ered held that while the enabling
act did not state specifically that
ated after the act became effective
should share in the future, still in a
generic sense it clearly applied to all
preparatory schools created by the
state and that all such schools
should share alike in those funds.
The matter is of more than pass-
ing moment to the two institutions.
In case the court holds that the
funds must be divided, in accord-
ance with the opinion of the at-
torney general, both of the prepar-
atory institutions are permanently
established and could not be abolish-
ed by act of the legislature.
New York, Sept. 2.—In this age of
motor, cars and aeroplanes the old-
fashioned wagon still holds the rec-
ord as the leading means of killing
the residents of New York in the
public streets. In August, according
to the report issued Saturday by the
National Highways Protective as
sociation, the old fashioned vehicle
had to its credit nearly double the
death list of the motor car. Here is

No Need to Stop Work.
When your doctor orders you to
stop work, it staggers you. “I can't"
you say. You know you are weak,
run-down and failing in health, day
by day, but you must work as long
as you can stand. What you need is
Electric Bitters to give tone, strength
and vigor to your system, to prevent
breakdown and build you up. Don’t
be weak, sickly or ailing when Elec-
tric Bitters will benefit you from the
first dose. Thousands bless them for i
their glorious health and strength,
Try them. Every bottled is guaran-
teed to satisfy. Only 50c at Corner
We want young men and women
to take good paying positions who
have finished either a course of
Shorthand, or Bookkeeping and
Shorthand in our college. Our em-
ployment records show that during
this year there has not been a grad-
uate of one of the above courses
who was not placed in a good posi-
tion within ten days after his course
was finished, unless of his own ac- i
cord. Yet there may be some who
have never registered with our Em-;
ployment Department, or who may |
desire more remunerative positions
than they are at present holding,
who would register now. Our Em- (
ployment Dept, is away behind in
supplying business firms, and will
appreciate anyone furnishing us
with the full particulars of one of
our graduates of the above named
courses who desires help in securing
a more desirable position. The fact
that we have been wholly unable to
supply the demand by business
irms during the past year is very
uggestive that we should more
earnestly urge other young people to
enter our school and take up a
course of Shorthand, or Bookkeep-
ing and Shorthand.
$50 pays for a life scholarship in
any one of these courses: $95 pays
for a life scholarship in two courses.
Board and lodging is only $2.50 to
$3.50 per week. The Shorthand
course is completed by the average
student in three and a half months,
the Bookkeeping course in four
months; Bookkeeping and Short-
hand in five months, thus it will be
seen the total cost of preparing and
Iteing placed in a good position is
very small. Anyone can afford it.
Write for our large catalogue, giv-
ing facts from hundreds of students
as to what they were able to ac-
complish, also what their employers
have to say of their ability to ren-
der first class service. Every state-
ment in this catalogue is backed by
a $100 cash guarantee to be true
and correct. We guarantee to give
a better and more thorough course
in half the time and at half the ex-
l>ense of any school teaching other
than the famous Byrne systems,
which are our own copyrighted
methods. Make your arrangements
to enter at once.
