The Place to Trade
Is where they keep the goods that is called for, goods of quality as well as quantity.
The particular buyer looks for certain guide posts to indicate the store upon which
he can depend tor quality when buying groceries. Those who are not able to argue
lor or against any certain brand of goods, may be confident that when you trade with
Tubbs you are assured of the best goods at the lowest prices. His line of canned
goods is complete as is also his line of teas and roffees. He has a large, well select-
ed stock of fancy groceries and everything in the staple line. Tubbs buys in car load
lots for cash and gives his customeis the benefit of the discount. This means a big
saving to you in the course of a year's business, and
"A Dollar Saved is a Dollar Made."

Normalites Unable to Score in Game
Which Was Noted For Its
The second football game of the
season, which was played on Boyd
Field yesterday afternoon, was un-
doubtedly the most one-sided contest
in which the Sooners have ever taken
The highness of the score did not
mean that the Normalites were not
able to put up a classy game, for they
did light in a persevering manner,
yet it did mean that men as light as
the Edmond players can not stand the
line plunges of a team so strong and
so well trained as is the one of which
Coach Owen has a right to feel
proud. Line plunges and end runs
were special features of the game.
Within five minutes after Oklahoma
had kicked off toward the south goal
Capshaw had made a touchdown.
After this the kicks for goal came
regularly, one for each four minutes
Only once was the Sooner's goal
in danger, and then the opposing team
was held for downs on the five yard
line. The ball was 011 Edmond soil
nearly all the time, and as regularly
as the Normalites kicked off toward
the Sooner goal posts, the 'Varsity r«
turned the hall to the other end of
the field for another touchdown
The game was unsensational on ac-
count of its steadiness and the regu-
larity with which O. U. sent the pig-
skin between the goal posts. Several
hundred people lined the bleachers,
ready to root vigorously if the team
should need any encouragement, but
for the most part silent, amazed by
the steady, never failing plays for
gains. Woods, Capshaw, Reeds, Rog
ers, Nairn and Morter did the most
ground gaining for the team Morter
perhaps, played the star game. Hi
effective runs were so frequent that
the spectators learned to look for a
touchdown every time he got the
spheroid under his arm.
The day was cool and favorable in
every way for the autumn game ex-
cept for a strong south wind. The
game opened at four o'clock with
Oklahoma kicking against the wind,
toward the south goal. Thompson
sent the leather almost to the Edmond
goal posts and the Normalites return-
ed it only 10 yards. Then the game
was on in earnest. After five minutes
of play, characterized by line buck
ing and end runs, Capshaw went
through for the first touchdown. Mor-
ter then got into action, and by dart-
ing through openings in the line and
by making slashing end runs he sue
ceeded in adding the next two count-
ers to the 'Varsity score.
In the second quarter Coach Owen
M iit into the field an entirely new
team. Thi- squad duplicated the work
of the first eleven, making three

Next Game With the Speedy Team
From Stillwater.—Aggies Wal-
loped Kingfisherites by
The Sooners have another game on
the schedule for this week, but since
their great victory over the Nor
malites yesterday we all feel that
they are able to "drub" another
eleven before they line up against
touchdowns during the quarter. Dur 1 the Tigers at Joplin, M
ing the first few seconds of play Rog- j The Aggies of Stillwater arc the
ers got loose for a 70 yard run. Then 1 fellows to be met next. They are to
after losing the ball on a forward play here on Boyd Field next Friday,
pa>s and recovering it without much j Oct. 21. There is no doubt but that
loss of ground, Reeds went through it will be a good game The \ggir-
the line for another half dozen points are light, but are much faster than
tile} were last year They defeated
Kingfisher 35 to 0. This means that ,
they will put up a better fight than |
any that has been given us this year
It means that we must all get out
and root for our standard bearers
Let us attend the bleachers Friday
'Emergency Currency" Now Ready
Twice more during the quarte
boys placed the ball at the fo< t of
the goal posts, and Radcliflfe sent it
over the cross bar
At the beginning of the second half,
with a 34 to 0 score, the first team re-
turned to the conflict, and added
counter after counter to the list, until
at the close of the game ()klahoma's
score had reached 79.
The game was interesting through- There is a very weak point in our

no wrangling over decisions, and no! stance, when a large amount of ex j

The treasury now has about hah

in the plates for printing these bills,
and each plate costs $75—which th<
banks have to pay the government
for. The notes are printed and -ent

are cut apart by the banks
It required much effort to find a
proper place f r -toring tin- vast
amount of money, and for this pur-
pose a special vault of largt size has
been built in the basement of the
treasury. This vault is probably the
finest in the \\ • rhl to date. It is pro

series of safeguards.

Conservative Estimate fa That In a
Single Year It Would Be More Than
Enough to Discharge the Entire Na
It was stated In a previous article
that waterways produce both direct
and Indirect savings In the cost of
transportation and also exert what
may be called a creative effect. A.s
an Instance of the direct baring It
was shown that the 100.000.000 tons of
; freight handled on the great lakes
In 1907 were carried for $550,000,000
less than it would have coat by rail
If the opinion of the United States
army engineers Is correct and this
opinion ts based upon results actually
achieved on the rivers of Europe—
wo have a number of rivers on which,
when properly Improved, freight can
be carried for less than on the lai^s
and many rivers on which It can he
carried for much less than by rail
If, therefore, the plan advocated by
th* National Rivers and Harbors
congress should be carried out—which
Includes the Improvement of all our
rivers to such extent as shall be found
advisable after expert examination
the direct saving in cost of transporta
tlon would be vastly Increased It
would probably b« increased tenfold,
but If It were only doubled the direct
saving in a single year would be more
than enough to pay off the national
But this Is not the end of the bene-
fits which the general Improvement of
our waterways would bring, It Is only
the beginning Reside the direct sar
Ing there Is an Indirect saving which
results from the effect of waterways
on railway freight rates, for rates
are always lower on railroads which
meet water competition than on those
which do not. The amount of this sav-
ing Is not everywhere ti® same, owing
to difference In conditions, but we
can get a good general Idea of It from
a study of some sample instances
Freight Rates Affected.
Freight rates froui New York to
Salt Lake or Spokane are much high
er than to San Francisco or Seattle,
although the distance is much less, be-
cause goods can be carried to the Pa-
cific coast by water, around Cape
Horn, while there Is no waterway of
any kind to the Inland cities named
It Is not the ocean alone that affect*
railroad rates. Compare the rates on
first class merchandise to river towns
and inland towns situated about 250
miles from St. I^ouis. Towns on the
upper Mississippi get a rate of 33
cents a hundred, inland towns pay 63
cents, towns on the Ohio pay 41 cents,
inland towns in the same region
A still more striking Instance, and
one showing the direct result of wa-
terway Improvement, Is to be found
on the Columbia river Before the
locks at the cascades were built
freight rates on nails, and that class
of goods, from Portland to The Dallea
were $6.40 per ton. As soon as the
locks were finished and the steam-
boats could get through, the railroad
rate dropped to two dollars per ton—
less than one-third what it was before
That the difference was due to the
river improvement is shown by the
fact that rates were not reduced be-
yond the point to which the steam
boats could run. For Instance, the
rate on salt in car load lots was $1.50
per ton to The Dalles, and $10 20 per
ton to Umatilla—$1.60 per ton for tha
18 miles with water competition and
$8.70 per ton for the next 100 milee
without. These rates have since been
reduced as the Improvement has pro
ceeded. and when liit work Is finished
and boats can run far up the Colum-
bia river and to Lewis ton and other
point in Idaho on its principal tribu-
tary. the Snake river, the people In
all that region will benefit not onlv
by the direct saving on goods earrled
by water, but also by the indirect sav
Ing through the reduced rate on goods
carried by rail Exactly similar re-
sults would follow the radical im
provement of rivers all ovf r ih * l nited
Indirect Saving Large.
There Is, however, do possible way
of finding out Juat how much this In-
i direct saving would be Rates on some
freight would be reduced greatly, on
j some freight slightly, on some, per-
haps, not at all But we can get some
Idea of the amount of freight which
might be influenced. In the fiscal
year ending June 80, 1907, the total
amount of freight handled by the
railroads ol the United States was
1,796,336,659 tons Some of this was
hauled a short distance, some a long
distance, and some was handled by
more than one road, but It was equal
to 236,601,390,103 tona hauled oue
mile. If the comprehensive improve-
ment of our waterways should make
an average reduction of one mill per
ton mile—the difference in the rates
on salt given above Is 70 times as
much, or seven cents per ton rail*-—ii
would make a aavlng of over $236,600,-
000 on the value of buaineas handled
