IN Tills < 1TV.
■olraves at the Old Veterans Decorated
Forty-Eight IMd Soldier*
Memorial day wax duly observed in
Edmond last Saturday. In the fore-
noon the old veterans aiid friends of
doceased soldier* buried in Gracelawn
cemetery, marched to the final resting
placei of these war heroes and placed

•Geo. I\. Uaney.
<0. P. Murphy,
J. G. Campbell.
R. K. Tanquary.
The latter two had passei away
vince last Memorial day.
The Memorial services were held at
the Methodist church Saturday after-
noon, and were largely attended, the
entire lower part of the building being
filled with patriotic people. The pro-
gram as outliped, and published in
The Sun last week, was carried but.
The address was by Henry P. Rob-
tins, editor of the McAlester Newp,
who delivered an excellent address.
The attendance from the standpoint
of old veterans was the largpst in the
history of Edmond. Forty-tight old
soldiers marched into the church in a
J)ody and were given seats in front.
Reserved sents wera also provided for
the wives and widows of the old veter-
ans. The church,was fittingly deco-
rated with flags and bunting.

Sunday memorial services were held
at the M. K. church Sunday forenoon,
at 11 o'clock. The Presbyterian and
Christian churches dismissed their
congregations in order that those who
desired could attend the service. There
wa- :i large attendance and all thor-
oughly enjoyed the able and patriotic
•sermon delivered by Ke\. R. Jj. Grant.

Notorious Oklahoma City Character
Free Once More.
County Attorney Reardon has dis-
missed the remaining murder cases
against "Big Anne'' Bailey, and as a
result that notorious character is
again at liberty. When Judge Lowe
of the district court, took the case
away from the jury last week, in
which the defendant was charged with
the murder of Eillian Ray, that act
ended the prosecution. County Attor-
ney Reardon wanted the case com-
pleted and go to the jury after the evL
Jence had all been submitted. How-
over, the court'.- decision brought the
case to u sudden termination. Coun-
ty Attorney Peardou stated this was
the strongest of the four cases against
Mrs. Baile\ and that the other cases
would doubtless result the same if
tried, so dismissed them.
It is understood the jury was reluc-
taut to turn "I4ig Anne" loose and
had the case been concluded, a differ-
ent story might have been told. Peo-
ple, as a rule, are greatly dissatisfied
with the outcome of the trial and
granting of freedom to this notorious
character, who is now given a free
hand to continue her work of wreck-
ing the lives of young men and young
women. The general opinion is that
she should have been sent to the peni-
tentiary for life on general principles.
Prof Nihart and Family Given Recep-
tion at M. E. Church.
A farewell reception was given at
the Methodist church, Monday even-
ing, to Prof. Nihart and family. A
largi number were present to bid fare-
well to on - who has been an earnest
and consistent worker in the Metho
dist church I r the past eight years.
The following program was rend-

Address. "Prof. Nihart and the
Methodist church of "Edmond"—A. D.
Address. "Prof. Nihart as a church
official"— W. B. Bryant.
Rev. Grant then presented Prof. Ni-
hart with a beautiful set of silver
koives and forks, a gift from the
President McLauchlin was also
present and made a few remarks. He
stated that not long since he wrote in-
quiries to some former students, ask-
them whose work had made the strong-
est impression on their minds while a
student in the Normal here. He said
of the sixteen replies received, all
stated Prof. Nihart.
Extreme regret was heard on every
side over the removal of Prof. Nihart
and family from Edmond, where his
upright citizenship, his excellent work
as a member of the Normal school
faculty, and his earnest, christian
work iu the church, will be so much
missed. However, ail wish them God
speed and happiness in their new-
home. They will reside at 142 Went
lfith street, Oklahoma City, near the
Epworth university, in which institu-
tion Prof. Nihart h..s been elected to

it) was there so were we. We always !

The resignation of the Rev. Dr. W.
B. Hinson as pastor of the White
Temple Baptist church at Oklahoma
City, was formally accepted by the
church politic at a special meeting
held in the church building Monday-
night. The Rev. Dr. Hinson ] le-
parted Tuesday for San Diego, Cal.,
whence he came four months ago to
accept the White Tsmple pastorate.
Undersheriff Harvey D. Garrison,
son of Sheriff George W. Garrison,
was married to Miss Nettie Hutchin-
son of Wichita, at noon Monday. An-
nouncement of the wedding created a
surprise. Mr. Garrison's second wife
died about two months ago, leaving
him two small children, one a baby in
arms, which was born but a feft days
before the death of its mother.
President McLaughlin Here.
President-elect A. J. McLauchlin
spent a few days the latter part of last
week and the fore part of this we<^ in
Edmond, familiarizing himself with
the work at the Normal and becorhing
acquainted with Edmond people.
President McLauchlin has created u
splendid impression here and the pre-
diction is freely, made that he will be
one of the most successful presidents
in the history of the Normal. He is
an educator of well-known ability, an
affable and pleasing gentleman to meet
and p°sse3ses the executive ability
necessary to successfully carry on
such an institution as the Central
State Normal school. He expects to
move to Edmond the fore part of Juiy.

"The Rev. Ernest E. Ford, assist-
ant pastor of the White Temple, will
carry on the work until a committee is
appointed and secures a successor for
the Rev. Dr. W. B. Hinson," said 1.
M. Holcomb. "We have not even ap-
pointed a committee to select a pa
tor," he continued. The Rev. Dr.
Elinson left Tuesday for his old home
at San Diego, Cal., after holding the
pastorate at the White Temple just
four months. He was in poor health
before coming to Oklahoma and. con-
trary to expectations, did not find the
material benefit here that he expected,
but rather the opposite, which forced
him to resign and return to the Paci-
According to County Commissioner
George W. Carrico, there is grave
danger of the county poor house and
farm being placed on the market.
"Water has completely inundated the
county property at the poor farm,"
says Commissioner Carrico, "and I
am a stronger believer than ever in
the policy of selling as quickly as pos-
sible. I have always favored the idea
that the county sould best be served
by the sale of that land, and since the
flood, I am positive of the fact. At
the present time it would not command
a large figure, for conditions look ex-
ceedingly dismal in the neighborhood.
If another such flood visits us, no
sale can be consummated."
County Attorney Reardon followed
up his declaration that he would ex-
terminate traffic in babies by sending
a letter to Mrs. J. D. Clarke, "17 East
Chickasaw, Oklahoma City, making
formal demands that he come to his
office and bring the little b*bv -lie-
now has in her possession arid give a
full explanation as to where she got
it, how long she has had it, wno its
parents are, and where they are at
A Large. Attendance Expected New
Members of Faculty Here.
The summer term of the Central
State Normal school opened Monday
for a ten weeks' term. Heretofore the
summer term has lasted but five weeks.
The enrollment at the present time is
275. At least 50 more are on their
way here, but have been delayed on
account of the rains. A large number
are expected to register next week.
The total attendance will doubtless
reach the 400 mark.
The following now members of the
faculty are here: Profs. Barrett,
Wood, Kent, Adamson, Corr, Mrs.
Abetnathy and Mrs. Barr, and the
Misses Brown and Overstreet.
One of the rulings of the new Nor-
mal board is that mu&ie shall hereaft-
er be taught free of charge. However,
one must bearvyiilar enrolled stu-
dent in order tti secure- this privilege.
Property owners and renters
