strict quarantine laws in regard to
northeners or blizzards, the product of
Manitoba, the Dakotas, Nebraska and
Kansas. If we could halt them on our

sen our coal bills and render our fair
territory a perpetual Eden.

The Missionary Rally at the Chris-
tian church Sabbath morning was a
very entertaining proceedings. The
children always do their part well, and
more than meet the expectations of
their teachers and friends, especially
the little four and five-year-old tots
speak their little pieces and sing their
little songs very much to the amuse-
ment of the audience. The superin-
tendent, Miss Alma Smith, and her as-
sistant, Mrs. Scrambling, deserve much
praise for their energy in training the
children and carrying out the program
as provided for the occasion. The con-
tributions amounted to $5.29.
Mrs. W. A. Chaffee, who so bravely
underwent the surgical operation nec-
essary for the removal of a large can-
cer from her breast a month or two ago
in Enid, is now in a critical condition.
As is generally the case when such
growth is removed with a knife, they
failed to remove the deepest and re-
motest fibers, and it has formed again
with as malignant appearance as ever.
This time they have engaged the can-
cer specialist, Dr. Mudgett, of Enid,
who removed the cancer so successfully
from the breast of Mrs. Epley about a
year ago, but it is feared that the cut-
ting out has so scattered the growth
that it will be impossible to reach ev-
part and fiber, as the medicine will do
when applied on a cancer having a
common center, such as a cancer repre-
sents before a knife is applied.
