AN IMPORTANT DECISION.
At the meeting of the Madrigal
club held yesterday afternoon in the
Presbyterian church, a vote was
taken, and since several members of
the club are sick and other reasons
interfering, it was decided to post-
pone the Japanese opera, which the
club have been practicing with the
intention of giving in April. When
the opera will be? given is not yet
decided, but it has been postponed
indefinitely into the far future. On
Palm Sunday the Madrigal club will
give a sacred concert in the Presby-
The Shamrock luncheons to be
given by Mesdaines Cook. Corry,
Jewell and McKee, on Wednesday
of next week instead of this week,

the total depravity libel
The doctrine of total depravity is
a traditional lie that every true man
is bound to repudiate as a base libel
on God and human nature. Who-
ever stands by the bedside of a
sleeping babe aud looking down up-
on it can say: "I believe in the
total depravity of mankind and of
that babe," passes my comprehens-
ion as an honest man. I would rath
er trust the testimony of that bah;*
face, and my own natural Impulst
of thought, than any statement
made by any theologian or any
church. The father who believes in
it degrades his fatherhood, and the
mother who does—but where is she?

fifteen leading railroads of the west.
It is not Improbable that the ruling
will be cited in Oklahoma and ac-
tion taken here against the two
cent fare law. though the circum-
stances are very different and the
railroads would be at a disadvantage
in the fight tin account of the pro-
visions of the constitution.
The people had hoped that the re-
sult of the test case before Judge
McPherson would be different, that
it would be shown that freight and
passenger rates arc too high, hence
the decision is a disappointment to
the people. But if the ruling is
based on facts, as the court has

The democrats have been boasting
about the head of their ticket. If
they are sincere in their talks about

Trust companies are offering to
loan money in Enid at five and six
per cent for erecting business build-

the ground as security for the cost
of the building. That is Just what
Enid has wanted for years, and It
shows that the city Is considered
among the soundest in the land. It
also means a great development in
the immediate future.

The Care of the Hair.
Every woman and every man de-
sires beautiful hair. And everyone
may have it if they will but give it
proper care and attention.
The first and all important step
toward the prevention of baldness
and grayness and toward promoting
a luxuriant growth of fine, silken
hair is to keep the scalp sweet and
clean and free from dandruff.
All kinds of advice have, from
time to time, been offered for the re-
moval of dandruff, and for the pro-
motion of hair growth; some bad,
There is, however, one safe, sure
and economical way. That is to use

Spirits of ammonia is undoubtedly
of great value in cases of heart or
