Rig Factory Has Casket Ma-
chinery on the Way.
E. G. Albright, of the American
Glass Casket Company, of Ada, Okla ,
was in the office today and made the
following statement concerning the
progress of the factory:
"It will no doubt be interesting to
the stockholders of Calumet to know-
that we are soon to realize the fact
that the glass casket which we have
been laboring so long to put out, will
be made and put on the market. We
have several hundred orders waiting
shipment and more coming in every
day. We are proud of our progress
and want every stockholder to know
we are doing everything to hurry things
along and make this company the
greatest possible success. We are now
turning out glass such as street globes
and glass electric globes."
Several men of this vicinity are
planning on making a trip to the fac-
tory this week with the view of invest-
ing in the company. There have been
several shares of stock sold here and
all are hoping that this will make a
A LITTLE GIRL HURT.
Helen, the little daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. G. F. O'Toole, was painfully hurt
last Thursday afternoon while playing
in G. T. Wilson's hardware. She ran
against the point of a plow share, lac-
erating her left foot badly and seven
• itches were required to close the
wound. Gordon Crump took the little
lady to Dr. Miller's office immediately
after the unfortunate mishap and she
displayed remarkable fortitude while
the surgical treatment was being ad-
ministered. She withstood a restless
night, but is reported getting along
Postmaster J. W. Haydon is in receipt
of a communicrtion from Postmaster
General Burleson which states that en-
rollment cards are being sent to the
Calumet postoffice to be signed by worn
en, who are willing to cooperate in food
conservation Mr. Haydon will gladly
explain everything in detail to ladies
more than fifteen years old. Now is a
good time to show your patriotism and
help your Uncle Sammy win the war.

By some mishap the first installment
of "The Man Without a Country" was
omitted from The Chieftain columns
and some of the readers called at the |
office to secure copies containing the
story. The unusual interest they have
shown in this story could not be passed
unnoticed, therefore, in order to let
them avail themselves of this splendid
serial, which is based on true facts, a
four-page supplement with the com-
plete story is run this week. Read it.
MISS CARNAHAN WEDS
Nuptial Ties Were Solemnized
at Chickasha Tuesday.
The maraiage of Mr. Allie Burge, of
El Reno, and Miss Lena Carnahan, the
accomplished daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
M. Carnahan, who reside near this
city, was solemnized Tuesday at Chick-
asha, at 10:30 o'clock, by the pastor of
the First Baptist church. The wed-
ding is the happy culmination of a
courtship of several months and was
not wholly a surprise to intimate friends
of the contracting parties.
The bride is a young lady of charm
ing personally and has endeared her-
self to a large circle of friends who

Mr. Burge was engaged in the shoe
business in El Reno for several years.
He disposed of his interests to bis
partner several months ago and has
been traveling as a slock salesman for
a thresher company. His parents re-
side on a farm south of El Reno.
The Ladies' Guild met with Mrs.
George Frass Friday afternoon. Four-
teen members were present. Mrs F. I
D. Dole was elected president. Mrs.
Jesse Hammer and Miss Lulu Roberts
were welcomed as new members. Next
meeting will be with Mrs Tally.

Tobe Switzer was here Saturday and
stated he had finished threshing and

one-half bushels per acre.

Get in Line and help Roost
the Growing Weekly.
Since the last subscription report
there have been several who have paid.
The first of these is J. A. Powers, who
resides west and north of town. Mr.
Powers is the owner of a ItiO-acre farm
which is under a fine state of cultiva-
tion. This makes the gentleman's sec-
ond year with the paper that is putting
Smooth highways make the horse
happy and the autoist smile.
Another gentleman paid two simol-
eons to have his date chased into the
1918 class. Inasmuch as he is opposed
to getting his name in the subscription
story, it is omitted. He is a loyal
scout and believes in supporting the
home paper and if he were in business
for himself he would use printer's ink
to inform the dear loving public what
he had to sell. Do you get that?
Every time you buy from an adver-
tiser you help the home paper. Every
time you help the home paper—you
help the town—and incidentally im-
prove your conditions.

Jj. B. iyers, president of the First
National Bank at El Reno, is numbered
among those who renewed within the
week. He is well and favorably known
to practically every man in the county.
It is not exaggerating to say that he is
a broad-gauged citizen and is a
real factor for the betterment of con
ditionsin his home town.

Since S M. Scott lost his rural ac-
commodations he has t > come town af-
ter his Chieftain. Th s inconvenience
makes him wait a day or so longer for
his paper, but he called at the office
the week and placed his name in the
1918 class, which was appreciated by
the force around this establishment.

Joe Kelley, who resides on route one,
called at The Chieftain office the last
of the week and renewed. He owns a

The gentleman came to Oklahoma from
Iowa the year after the opening and

cial lecturer will be sent to Calumet to

ing, the 20th, on the lawn at the Todd

above mentioned place, the proceeds

AGED CITIZEN DIES
John Reynolds \nswers Last
In the death of John Reynolds, which
occurred Saturday, one of the old-time
citizens answered the final bugle call
and passed to his reward Mr. Rey-
nolds was an old soldier and served
with the 118th Indiana volunteers, un-
der General Thomas. In 1882 he set-
tled in Kansas, where he resided until
1900, when he became a resident of
The deceased had been in feeble
health since the first of last January.
On July Hrd lie fell and sustained in-
ternal injuries which hastened his
death, it is believed. He was an un-
obtrusive person and was held in high
esteem by all who knew him.
John Reynolds was horn in Wavne
county, bid., October 7, 1882 and died
at Calumet, Okla , Saturday July 14.
at 12:50 p. m., age 81 years, nine
months and seven days. He was mar-
ried in 1854 to Jency Stevens. To this
union four children were born, one of
whom Francis M. Reynolds, is still j

Susanna McNeese, to which union five i
children were born Two of these, j
Wm. and J L Re>nolds, together with j
twelve grandchildren, survive him.
The Socialists will hold a state agita- i

farmers of this locality, sold a car of

MORE OIL IS NEEDED
Prices Sure to Advance. Com-
panies I )rilliii«i Day and Night.
The fact has recently been empha-
sized by officials of ti-' Doited States
Navy, that the success of the United
States and the nations allied with her
in war depends, in large measure, upon
the continuing supply of fuel oils, for
use on the seas and in the air. At the
present time the United Stales is build-
ing more than 200 oil burning vessels
and more are to be built Three oil-
burning dreadnaug h t s have been
launched within the last three months.
Added to these are fleets of destroyers
and in all probability a fleet cf some
20,000 air crafts will be built, all using
oil as a power producer.
Organized effort is being made in all
sections where oil is produced, to in-
crease the output by the development
of additional wells, and also to con-
serve the Hmv of wells now producing.
But it is seen that the demand of na-
val and air squadrons, with their in-
creasing number of crafts; the great
number of automobiles being manufac-
tured each month, will be much greater
as the war progresses; and it is to pro-
vide for this great demand th il definite
new sources are being sought.
The new demamh, according to Sec-
retary Daniels, will exhaust the re
serve supplies in the United States,
should the war continue, thus making
positively necessary the assurance of
added supplies from new fields Chris-
tian Science Monitor.
Oil is king It is predicted that 1917
will see the highest prices ever re-
corded. Southern Oklahoma is fast
coming to the front in oil production
New fields are being opened up. South-
ern Grady and Northern Stephens
counties are attracting the attention of
developers of many years' experience.
The Langston Oil & Gas Company, with
over 4,000 acres of choice leases, are
now drilling day and night on the Mil-
wee farm in section 32 3 N., 6 W.,
Southern Grady county, and are at a
depth of some 1H7 3 feet. Many
Canadian county citizens have become
interested, a number visiting I lie fields.
The formations encountered are ex
ceedingly promising. For particulars,

A GOOD RAIN HERE.

'lay afternoon and will he of much hone-
fit to some of the corn and forajre
crops. Kafir and other feed crops have
withstood the dry weather remarkably
well and a few more rains will rnatun*
