Kansas City Mo. Dec. 17. Preach-
er became pinilW'nt yesterday after-
noon and the sermon was delivered
from tho bench instead of the pulpit
when .ludge Ijitshuw of the criminal
court calbul ttcfore Mm the Rev.
Hnry I?. Smith until a year ago a
clergyman in Oklahoma. Mr. Smith
escaped a cnitenliary sentence in
the eriminnl court but hnd to face
u merciless nnd stinging arraignment
by .ludge Lalshaw. The lecture last-
ed twenty mlnutOB.
Mr. Smrtn. who has Cherokee In-
dian blood In bin veins became ad-
dicted to lht use of whisky and mor-
phine about a year ago. He came to
Kansas City two months ngo an a
business trip got on what ho called
"a terrific spree" failed to pay his
bills at the iraltimone and Kupper
hotels and spread worthlesa checks
about the city all to the amount of
$L'24. Smith wafl nrrested on com
plaint of the persons ho had victim-
ized and for the last seven weeks
has been In the county jail.
"1 ought to send J'ou to tho peni-
tentiary" Judge Ijttshaw sald to the
minister alien Smith was brought be-
fore him yesterday afternoon. "You
are a high class criminal a man of
high education and low morality.
That you did those things while un
der the Influence of liquor and dru-fl
is the poorest excuse you could offer.
You have disgraced the ministry so-
ciety your family nnd yourself. I
feel that. I am making a mistake In
permitting you to go free."
Willie the judge talked Smith trem-
hlcul violently and became pale. Pres-
ently he took from his pocket a let-
ter from his wife and asked Judge
l.ntshaw to read It.
"Yes there Is always an Innocent
nnd Injured woman to plead Kr a
man like you" the judge excla med.
"If a woman had fioven lives and fix
were taken from her with the :nst
gasp of her seventh life she would
plead for mercy for some worthless
man who had wronged her. A splen
did jierson you are to wear thp ilot'a
to instruct other men Jiow to live
aright how to draw strengfi from
religion to withstand temptation."
"I plead with you not to send me
to the penitentiary" Smith faltered.
"For the sake of my wife and little
children for the sake of my mother
who Is 8.' years old give me this one
chance to' redeem myself and I prom-
ise as Hod Is my wlfhess never to
let another drop of liquor or pa-tlcle
of morphine pass my Hps. I was a
useful man until a year ago. I stood
high and lived a clean upright life
till those accursed habits overtook
me. I promise "
"Enough of promises! Thev are
too easily made." Judge I.ats'iaw si'.d.
"1et your actions speak Instcrl of
your lips from now on. T.il case
ag;iinst you is dismissed. 011 are
now to go."

The suit of Reuben Hardy vs. City i
of AnJniore -was tried In the district
court Friday and consumed the en-!
tire day. The Jury returned a verdict
of 200 damages. This suit was
brought by Mr. Hardy for damages
to four ibulldings Bltuated on Caddo
street and the baeement on ac-
count of overflows that occurred in
1908. lie claimed: that the city had
negligently and carelessly graded
the streets and closed up the sewers
at Fourth avenue and the sewer
at the Intersection of Paradise al-
ley and Caddo street. He asked for
$l.r00 for permanent injury and
albout the same amount for loss of
rents and repairs.
This practically winds up all dam-
age suits that were pending against
the dty of Ardmore at the .time the
new administration went into of-
fice. City Attorney Moore has dis
posed of five damage suits aggregat-
ing about $25000; rwo of these five
suits aggregating $12000 which have
ben won by the city. Of the other
three judgment has been rendered
of $100 $200 and $450 respectively.
The judgment of $450 'has .been ap-
pealed from and the city attorney
feels sure that the same will be
reversed in the higher court on ac-
count of the rulings made by Judge
Roberson in the trial of the suit.
The city is making a spec4al effort
to clean up all suits at this term of
court and by the time the court
is over the docket will lie practical-
ly cleaned up so far as the city is
it has the suit of Sayre vs. the
Cl'y; Ilest vs. the City and the
Ardmore Concrete & Construction
Co. vs. the City yet to dispose of.

You Formed the Habit
in 1910 of asking Tor DeWitt's and thereby gave Ardmore the
distinction of having the largest cigar factory in the state.
Keep the habit working during 1911 and I will keep up the
grade or the DeWitt cigars so you will feel proud to invite your
friends to smoke with you.
A box of these fine smokers would not be amiss for a Christmas.
present would it? Order from your druggist or gTOcer.
I wish for every reader of this card unalloyed happiness during
the Christmas holidays and a prosperous New Year.
