CLEARED OF CHARGES.
Dr. McElrath Says He Made the Changes
in Appropriation Bill.
A special from El Reno, Oklahoma, to
the Kansas City Star, dated March 3, says:
"Dr. C. F. McElrath, who was chairman of
the appropriations committee of the lower
house in the legislature of 1900, has exoner-
ated H. B. Gilstrap of the charge of fraudu-
lently changing the general appropriations
bill under which Gilstrap's salary was in- :
creased from $4 to $5 a day. The postoffice !
inspector, Mr. Stice, went to Dr. McElrath |
to hear what he knew concerning the inter- j
lineation complained of. McElrath went to j
Guthrie to see the appropriations bill. He !
recognized the handwriting as his own, and
said that he had made the change in the j
presence of several members of the commit- |
tee, when it was discovered that Gilstrap's
salary had not been raised as ordered."
The Preacher Acquitted.
Synes Clark, a young colorted preacher ;
from the vicinity of Partridge," was on trial
in probate court Monday on a charge of be-
ing the father of Emma Jones' baby, born
February.4. Emma's reputation as a colored
woman of virtue was not very well estab-
lished, and the fact that Mr. Clark did not
return from school until some time* late in
June, led the court to find him not guilty.
Fighting a Saloon Petition.
The local W. C. T. U. ladies have been
in active seryice this week getting up a re-
monstrance against the petition of Sam Iron-
dale for a saloon on the east side of Manvel
avenue, between Tenth and Eleventh streets.
Thus far each side claims a majority.
The postmaster general has established a
new postoffice at Winn, Lincolfi county.
John C. Winn is postmaster,
Frisco's New Time Card.
On March 23 the St. Louis & San Fran-
cisco railroad will put on a new fast mail
and passenger train between Kansas City
and points in Oklahoma, the Indian territory
and Texas. The schedule of the new train
has not been completed, but it will leave
Kansas City about 7:30 each evening and
will reach Oklahoma City about -7 o'clock
the next morning; Dallas, Texas, at 1:30,
and Fort Worth, Texas, at 2:45 in the after-
noon. The new service will bring Kansas
City from three to twelve hours nearer than
it is now to a great part of Oklahoma, the
Indian territory and Texas.
The Frisco system is one of the.greatest
railroad enterprises in the United States.
Under the present management it is reach-
ing out until it is in touch with the entire
southwest and southeast. It was the first
road to open the markets of the world to
Lincoln county, and no matter how many
I new roads may be built, the old reliable
Frisco will remain the favorite wjth Chandler
\ and Lincoln county citizens.
Prizes for Cantaloupes.
For the purpose of encouraging melon
! growing and early planting, The News
offers a prize of five dollars for the first
crate, and two dolla'rs for the second crate
of cantaloupes brought into Chandler, raised
in Lincoln county, this year—outside of
i what the market price may be—the canta-
j loupes to be delivered and accepted as ripe
i enough for shipment by F. J. Weymouth,
i the local buyer. The seed should be pur-
i chased at once and the ground made ready.
Fined for Fighting.
Edwin and Ors Cothran, two young men
living at Belmont, a town across the line in
Pottawatomie county, were brought in by a
1 deputy sheriff Monday on a warrant charg-
ing them with assault committed in this
county. They were fined $10 each in Judge
; Cordell's court and released on a stay bond.
There are a million little mouths In your
skin ready to absorb whatever comes to them.
What kind of soap do you feed them? We
seldom reckon with the powers of absorption
exercised by^the pores of the skin, and yet it is
possible for these little mouths to take in four
quarts' of water in twenty-four . hours. No
■ wonder impure toilet and bath soaps are so apt
to produce skin diseases.
You can trust the soaps we sell you. We
handle none but worthy brands, and by buying
in quantities we are able to make low prices
on them. .

Tribute of Resp;ct.
Whereas, the Supreme Worshipful Master
| above, has in his infinite wisdom, called
i from labor here below our worthy and
esteemed brother, Claud E. Chapin.
And, whereas, our long and intimate rela-
tions held with him as a brother in Arling-
ton lodge. No. 20, A. F. and A. M., in the
faithful discharge of his duties, his sterling
worth as ji citizen and his devotion to his
family make it eminently benefitting that
we, his brothers and associates, record our
appreciation of him. •
i Resolved, that the removal of such a lite
from our midst leaves a vacancy and a
! shadow that will be deeply realized not only
by his bereaved family, but by all who were
so fortunate as to enjoy his acquaintance.
i And be it
Resolved, that we, his brethren in masonry
of Arlington lodge, extend our heartfelt
sympathy to the widow, the orphans and the
bereaved relatives of our deceased brother,
and we express the hope that so great a loss
to us all may serve to unite us into a more
united band of friends an(^ brothers among
whom no contention should ever exist, but
that noble contention of who best can work
^ and best agree. Then let us imitate the
life of our deceased brother and so_ live that
when the Supreme Master of this great uni-
verse shall call us, we may enter that great
lodge above, that house not made with hands
eternal in the heavens to be with our great
Worshipful Master who doeth all things well.
Resolved, that a copy of these resolutions
be spread upon our records of the l'^dge, a
copy printed in the county papers and a

There was a pleasant gathering at the
home of E. G. Keck, at Carney, last Satur-
day evening, when a few neighbors and
friends met to spend the evening. It was a
surprise, celebrating the twenty-fifth anni-
versary of the marriage of Mr. and Mrs.
Keck. It added to the pleasure of the occa- .
sion to.have their son, Tenas, and his wife
present from Wellston. The people went
prepared to provide for refreshments and
shortly after 10 o'clock began to serve an
enjoyable lunch. Ml1, and Mrs. Keck were
among the early settlers there, and by their
sterling worth and willing co-operation have
won the general esteem and love of Carney
people. May they have another quarter of
a century of as happy and useful experience.
An enjoyable dance was held at the pretty
suburban home of Mr. and Mrs. D. E.

invited guests from this city" and the occa
] sion was one of the most delightful of the
l season's festivities.
