W. T. Myers, of Maise, in the Creek
nation, is in the city endeavoring with
the aid of Chief Sims and his men, to
locate his 17 year old son, Bradford
Myers, who recently left home. Search
so far has proved unavailing. The boy
recently wrote to his father for $10,
which was forwarded to him by regis-
tered mall, but the father, who had be-
come anxious, started here at once and
£ot here ahead of the money. The boy
is practically grown, and It Is feared
that he has become 111 here in some
rooming house, as he has not called
for his mall. If he is not located here
the father will probably go to Okla-
homa City before returning home.
Wounds, Bruises and Burns.
By applying an antiseptic dressing
to wounds, bruises, burns and like In-
juries before Inflammation sets in,
they may be healed without matura-
tion and in about one-third the time
required by the • >ld treatment. This
is the greatest discovery and triumph
of modern surgery. Chamberlain's
Pain Balm acts on this same princi-
ple. It Is an antiseptic and when
applied to such Injuries, causes them
to heal very quickly. It also allays
the pain and soreness and prevents
any danger of blood poisoning. Keep
a bottle of Pain Balm in your home
and It will save you time and money,
not to mention the inconvenience and
suffering such injuries entail. For
sale by the Owl Drug Store, C. R.

Guthrie, Olcla., Oct. 2.—Representa-
tives from the various towns in the
territory making offers for the location
of the college to be established in Okla-
homa by the Christian church and en-
dowed by an eastern millionaire are
meeting this afternoon at the First
Christian church, with Rev. E. V.
Zollars, of Hiram, O., who has the mat-
ter in charge and the committee ap-
pointed by the general Christian
church conference at El Reno last
El Reno is biding strongly for the
school and has the largest delegation
here boosting for the location of the
school at that place. Representatives
are here also from Shawnee, Norman:
Tulsa, Enid and Woodward.
Just what the various towns have to
offer can not be learned until the bids
are opened by the committee. It is
understood, however, that Shawnee
and El Reno are offering tracts of
land on which to erect the college
buildings and to be used for indus-
trial purposes in addition to money
