GETTING THEIR PICK
"Tho Frisco and tho Rock Island are
taking time by the forelock and are
consequently getting the pick of the
beat operators in the country," said
a local rallroa<l man today. "They are
preparing for the enforcement of the
telegraphers' eight hour law aJready,
long before it is in force, and will
profit thereby." The change locaJly
Is attracting, general interest, and
there is much speculation as to how
long the new arrangement will last.
City Clerk A. D. Martin yeett rdaj
made the demand upon the Shawnee
National bank for the $1,50<> of forfeit
money deposited there, and supposed
to be coming to the city at the pres-
ent time, and the bank refused t<> de-
liver thr money until further instruc-
tions art* received from the people who
put It up- $500 of the amount is the
forfeit posted by Willis Fertig for com
piianco with the terms of an ordinanae
granting him a franchise which fran-
chise expired last year
Aocording to the ordiniuice the $500
was ti be subject to the order of the
city upon thp expiration of the fran
chise without its provisions having
been fulfilled. $1,000 of the amount
was posted by the Mainland company
for their natural gas franchise, which
expired a short time ago. This money
was also to be subject, to the order of
the city upon the expiration of tho
franchise. It is not known yet wheth-
er these companies will fight the pay-
ment of the certified checks deposited
or not. It is claimed by some that
the city will have to sue, and will have
to damage tr* the extent of the forfeit
in order to secure the money.

II SHOOTING AFFRAY
Rock Inland Agent Briggs of Wil-
burton, was shot Wednesday afternoon
by the station pumper as a result of
a quarrel. He was not seriously
wounded, however, and will recover.
IN-rsoaal differences are said to have
been the cause of the quarrel. Flill
particulars of the affair were not re-
A weak stomach means weak stom-
ach nerves, always. And this Is also
true of the Heart and Kidneys, it's
a pity that the sick ones continue to
drug the Stomach or stimulate the
Heart and Kidneys. The weak nerves
not the organs themselves, need this
help. This exxplalns why Dr. Shoop's
Restorative has, and is promptly help-
ing so many sick ones. It goes di-
rect to the cause of these diseases.
Test this vital truth and Bee. Wal-

fame as the author of "The Helmet

locale In San Antonio and will con-
tain stirring laccounts of some of the
thrilling historical emits of which
this city has been the scene. No city
in America has such an atmosphere

in America began with the Revolution
and end* d with the Fall of tihe Alamo
and the victory of San Jacinto. Mrs.

The new production "The District
I-eader," which will appear at the
Becker Theater on Wednesday, Feb.
26th, is a production teeming with sit-
uations of vital public interest, inter-
spersed with lights and shades of com-
edy and songs. It is a drama em-
bellished with music. It has the man-
t< r touch of pathos, and comedy that
makes one go home singing. It might
well be called a musical play "with a
reason;" that is to say, the musical
numbers dovetail into the plot and fit
the situations, an uncommon thing in
present day musical productions.

Firemen Plan Ba I.
The local tiremen are planning a
benefit ball to be given March 3rd in
the Eagles' hall to rate funds for the
Firemen's State Convention and Tour-
nament to be held in Shawnee early in
May. A large amount of money will
be needed to carry the big meeting
through successfully, and this will be
the first step taken toward raising ft
It is a worthy enterprise and one
which be liberally patronized.
Tho state convention and tourna-
ment last year was held at Ardmore.
Chief Brown, Kitchell, Grace and
Jackson were in attendance from
Shawnee. Thny succeeded In landing
the next meeting for this place, and
the local boys are determined to make
it a success In fact, they expect to
show the visiting firemen the time of
their lives, and make them want to
come back frequently
The ball as planned will bte an elab
orate one. Committees will soon be
appointed to lakjc the various details j
in charge and distribute tickets.
As arrangements are completed they
will be announced from time to time.
The fire bays can be depended upon
to do things up in a proper manner,
and all who attend the ball will be
sure of getting more than their
money's worth, and will besides be
helping not only thb members of the
fire department, but the whole of
Shawnee, as the success or failure
of a Convention of any kind creates
either a favorable or unfavorable im-
prtassion In the minds of visitors, as
the case may be. Shawnee cannot af-
ford to be niggardly with the firemen
in the matter of contributions to their
state convention fund.

Stop That Cold
To check early colds or Grippe with "Pre ren ties*
moans sure defeat for Pneumonia. To stop a cold
with Preventics la safer than to let It ron and be
obliged to cure It afterwards. To be sure. Pre-
ventics will cure even a deeply seated cold, but
taken early—at the sneeze stage—they break, or
head off these early colds. That's surely better.
That's why they are called Preventics.
Preventics are little Candy Cold Cures. No Qnln-
tne, no physic, nothing sickening. Nice for the
Children—and thoroughly safe too. If you fee)
chilly, if you sneeze, if you ache all over, think of
Preventics. Promptness may also save half your
usual sickness. And don't forget your child. If
there is feverlshness, nlghtor day. Herein prob>
ably lies Preventics' greatest efficiency. Sold in

An instance of the extreme enforce

lated by Kjaty trainmen. Yesterday at
Okla-homa City a constable drove 18
bums from a Katy box car, six of
them being negroes. They were too
much for one man to handle, and con
sequently go away. The constat)
then proceeded against the train cr«w
charging them with violating the Jim
Crow law in aLlowlng negroes aci
