Surelv there is an abundance of love
and sympathy in Norman, for during
the thirteen weeks that our beloved
Mrs. Runyan lay so ill, the kind words
and deeds and careful attention was
continuous. We desire to express our
most heart felt thanks to the manv
friends and neighbors.

—Speaking of the University
Orchestra, the Shawnee Herald
says: A feature of the evening
was the presence of the splendid
orchestra from the University
of Oklahoma. The organization
is composed of young ladies and
gentlemen who are students in
the state's foremost schorl.
Their program last night was one
of the best ever rendered in
Shawnee and won merited ap-
—320 acres in Panhandle, Tex.

Crazies Not All in The Asylum.
Really, "what fools we mortals
be" was well exemplified by
scenes at the loading of the poor
unfortunates on Tuesday even-
ing. Great crowds gathered at
the asylum and at the cars,
crowding and jostling, getting up
j ust as close to the cars as pos-
sible, fathers and mothers hold-
ing up their children so that no
move of the poor crazy creatures
would be missed, and in general
deporting themselves as if at a
picnic. It was really a question
which were the craziest, the aud-
ince cr those who were being
put on the cars. Dr. Clark's
remarks were eminently correct
when he said to one bystander:
"We are not running a circus
here. This woman is some man's
m~> h?r. She is not on exhibition.
To make her a spectacle for the
gaze of the curious, to let them
see her rend her clothes in her
most violent mood, would be an
insult to that son, a shame to
that family." Dr Clark would
not allow anyone on the grounds
of the asylum, and did all in his
power, as did all the employes
and attendants, to protect them
from the curious public.
Regents Meet in Oklahoma City.
I he Oklahoman of Wednesday
says: The quasi-university
scandal in which several mem-
bers of the _ faculty at Norman
j have been directly charged with
card-playing, dancing, cigarette-
smoking and actions suggestion
! of immorality, will be finally con-
! eluded Oklahoma City tomorrow,
as which time the board of re-
gents meets for the purpose of
selecting the faculty. The pro-
fessors asking for reappointment
will be represented, it is stated,
either by counsel or in person,
while the Rev. R. E. L. Morgan,
pastor of Norman Methodist
Episcopal church, and responsible
for the allegations made against
the instructors, will be here ac-
companied by his attorneys, B.
F. Williams, of Norman, and
Moman Pruiett, of Oklahoma
"It is asserted that the session
will be an exceedingly sensation
al one. Charges and counter-
charges will ge made."
Orchestra at Shawnee.
Prof. Holmberg's university
orchestra went to Shawnee, Mon-
day, where they furnished music
for the graduating exercises of
the Shawnee high school. They
gave three concerts, and the pa-
pers of that city are high in their
praises of the organization.

Senator Julius Burrows, < f
Michigan has been selected a>
temporary chairman of the Re-
publican National convention.
The selection was made by a
sub-committee of the national
committee, but really by Chair-
man Harry New, of Indiana,
who is head of the committee.
The selection is said to be a dis-
trict disappointment to President
Roosevelt and Secretary Taft,
who desired a man in the posi-
tion who was a positive friend
and not a negative one, and
favored Beveridge or Dolliver.
Burrows is known to be tinged
with Foraker-Harriman - Crane
isms, and it is not thought he
can or will make that sort of a
"keynote" speech that is desired.
The "allies" are said to be
chuckling, boasting that they
have at least got Mr. Roosevelt
and Secretary Taft "in a hole."
Maybe. The rest of us will
doubt it until the game is played

A. P. Witt was brought into
court on charge of contempt, and
placed under $300 bond to appear
at the next term of court. Witt
was an witness in the Bumgar-
ner case, and was summoned as
such, but failed to answer to his
name when called.
In the case of J. L. Curtis vs.
R. A. Conkling, reported last
week, judgment was rendered in
favor of Conkling, instead of
Curtis. The case depended on
a question of what constitutes a
legal tender. Conkling was rep-
resented by Gresham & Gres-
ham. Williams & Williams, at-
torneys for Curtis, will appeal
to the Supreme court.
The land case of J. H. Love vs.
J. A. Horton, et al, a suit to re-
cover 400 acres of land north-
east of this city, was decided in
favor of Love. J. C. Wails and
J. H. Hartley were exonerated
by the court from any connec-
tion with the case, and the costs
are to be equally divided between
plaintiff and defendant. W. M.
Newell represented Love.

—The Democrat-Topic's spe-
cial University addition will be
circulated this week. It is a
twelve-page seven column paper,
printed on book paper, and most
creditable to the gentlemen who
furnished the reading matter,
and to the Democratic-Topic of-
fice in the matter of arrangement
and mechanical work. It abounds
with many fine pictures of num-
erous business houses arid resi-
dences and portraits of promi-
nent men. It will be of great
good to the town and county if
Dennis T. Flynn.
Somebody has handed Ed J.
Costello so many lemons the
juice has soured his blood. He
says Dennis T. Flynn, in these
later years, has allowed his
otherwise good qualities to be
destroyed by egotism. That is
the Costello point of view. When
Dennis was playing politics he
played the game; when he plays
business he plays the game, for
all there is in him. Dennis Flynn
could no more get swelled up with
prosperity and success than he
could be cast down by poverty
and ill fortune. He always
would be Dennis Flynn. Once
you love him, always you love
him, and there are too many peo-
ple in Oklahoma who love Den-
nis Flynn ever to believe that he
has fed on Cassar meat.—Still-
That's been cur own experience
with Dennis, and that of everyone
he's come in contact. He's al-
ways the same old "Dennis."

Last Saturday night the Aurora
and Websterian Literary Socie-
ties held their annual joint meet-
ing in the chapel. Most of the
members of the House and
Ciceronian Society attended and
an unusually large crowd was
present. A program, consisting
of a debate, reading, story telling
contest, and vocal and piano so-
los, was carried out very success-
The question for debate, "Re-
solved, that Esperanto should be
studied in the High Schools and
Colleges of the World," was very
ably discussed. The Auroras,
although having been organized
only two years, are doing some
very excellent literary work.
Their remarkable improvement I
was particulary noticeable in
their speakers on the debate, j
Misses Bertha Salter and Doratha
Hazeltine. With the Websterian
speakers, Clark and McMahan in
their usual good form, they made j
a very interesting discussion. '
T:-ir success was plainly the ro-
il of much study and hard
•'fk. The piano solo by Lena
"it and the vocal solo by Mel-
. : Salter were highly appreciat-
1 by the audience. The par- ;
liamentary drill was conducted;
by Reeves who seemed to have '
the subject well in hand. Every j
one present reported having!
spent a very enjoyable evening.
