tions in their pursuits of an education.
The ten young people who compose
the graduating class of the high school
are among the brightest and best of
the town and county. Each expects ^o

Town Made A Good Fight.
Wm. Schlegel returned from Law-
ton Monday morning, where he had
been with the Odd Fellows'committee,
which was selected to decide upon the
location of the lodge's widows' and
orphans' home. The committee met
Saturday evening to vote upon the
towns that had made bids for the loca-
tion but did not adjourn until 4 o'clock
Monday morning. The voting con-
tinued throughout the evenings men-
tioned and the fight for the location
simmered down to the towns, Carmen
and Lamont, the others having dropped
from the contest. Mr. Schlegel
made a great fight for Chandler and
at one time came within 1 vote of
landing the home heje. The commit-
tee adjourned early Monday morning
having agreed to disagree. The mem-
bers which compose it will meet again
in the near future to have another vote
the on the situation. Mr.'Schlegel is not

meeting of the association will be in
July in Sparks, the date to be set at
the will of the committee. The asso-
so confident of success for Chandler
in this meeting as he originally was
but holds out hopes just the same.
While the bid made by Chandler was
considered better by outsiders than
and it will be paying the boys and
girls, who have labored hard in years
past to graduate, a pretty compliment
if the house is well filled The program
for the evening will be as follows:

The County Editors Organize.
Saturday afternoon an organization
of the Lincoln County Press association
was affected. A call had been issued
for such a meeting for the past two
weeks and a strong organization was
formed. A banquet was given at
Nick's cafe at noon in honor of the
visiting editors and a pleasant hour
At 3 o'clock the editors met in the
„ court room where they proceeded to get
down to business forthwi' h. Judge
Sweet was elected temporal- / chairman
and A. D. Murlin seer tary The
New Christian Church Minister.
Having had'many applicants from
whom to select the official board of the
Christian church has selected a pastor.
We are informed that the choice is
| unanimous with the board, which
means that the church will also be un-
animous in it# approval of the action
of the board.
Oscar Ingold, of Norman Oklahoma,
is the choice, and from what we can
hear of him as a minister and educat-
or, the church board is to be com-
mended for its choice.
Mr. Ingold is principal of the public
schools of NormaR, Oklahoma, which
fact means that his literary qualfica-
tions are the best, and which also
means that, in addition to being a
strong preacher, his influence will
doubtless be invaluable to the teachers
of the county. His work with the
church will begin next Sunday at which
time a full membership is expected to
be present, together with all others
Dave Ward, Chandler's city marshal,
surprised a lot of our people Monday by
bringing a wife over from Sparks.
People who knew Dave were well
aware of the fact that he had been
prowiing around Sparks lately moi'e
than was customary for a man with
interests at home, but no one sus-
pected that he had sneaked over there
and.on the quiet married Miss Froda
Nelson one of Sparks' popular young
ladies. The couple will make their
home in a cottage in East Chandler,
which the groom had in readiness for
occupancy. The News joins their many
friends in wishing them a future of
unbounded success and happiness.

The Chandler News,
The News has been sent me in con-
nection with my purchase of a county
map at your office April 190i>.
The paper is a good one, few weekly
papers in the west better, but my local
interests in the county now are too
small to pay to take the News; so
kindly take my name from your sub-
scribers list. .

Asked Embry to Heip.
Several of the business men of the
town telegraphed John Embry, who is
now in Washington looking after polit-
ical matters, to make himself as use-
ful as possible in securing a favorable
report on the bill introduced tn the
senate to give the school section ad-
joining Chandler to the town for the
benefit fit educational purposes. Shaw-
nee, which had a like bill before the
3tateman, got off with her's and Chan-
dler should have the same benefits that
are accorded to other town. We'll bet
if John makes the "fellers" a speech
down there they will come through in
It Cost Them 517.
Saturday evening a couple of suspic-
ious characters dropped into the Chan-
dler Hardware Co's store and one of
them asked to look at some paint.
While Fred Neal was showing the
mixtures to the one the other scound-
rel stepped behind the showcase and
"lifted ' a fine 44-caliber Colts revolver.
Neal observed him step from behinj
the showcase* and immediately pro-
ceeded to hunt for the gentleman's
trademark, which he found in the miss-
ing revolver. He at once notified Sher-
iff Martin who took charge of the old
man and who. with a little difficulty,
caught the young fellow. They were
allowed to go by returnig the revolver
and paying a fine and costs, which
amounted to $17.
