Such stories as this snake story
is not only a suspicion that) our
jolly, rotund sheriff was not only
letting some whisky be sold
here but that the quality of the
boose was bad. Any fellow who
sees snakes in the winter time
with a foot of snow on the ground
is not useing good judgment
when he drinks, and must go
outside the workings of the pure
food law to find his stuff.
The Alaho Club met with Mrs.
Mansel. Eighteen members
Qur out of towu guest was
Mrs. Govett, of Marietta, Okla ,
who entertained the members of
the club with some exquisit pat-
terns in crochet work; Needle-
craft was the talk of the day.
The next meeting is luncheon
day and will be with Mrs. Dod-
son. All members are request
to be present.
if we excel it will be conceded
that we have triumphed over 01 e
of the most live and enthusiastic
bible schools in the state, but we
are determined to win out.
"Watch us grow." Our young
people enjoyed a great barquet
last Friday evening. There is
something doing in this church
all the time. You can't afford
not to be with us if you have no
church home. The preaching
services are overflowing. Our
music, furnished by and orches-
tra of seven instruments, is
superb. The choir is making
rapid advancement under the
wise and efficient leardership of
Prof. Kelly. Some special num-
bers are in preparation for next
Sunday. The pastor baptized
four last Sabbath evening, and
others are expected next service.
The peopel of Cordell will have a
rare opportunity to hear excep-
tionally odd sermons next Sun-
day. We have arranged with
Rev. G. H. Stigler to preach at
both hours. You simply can
not afford to miss Rearing him
We shall be pleased to greet
you at all our services. Come,
and you'll certainly come egain

Cordell National Bank Building
O i January 5th our schools
opened with one of the best pros-
pects imaginable to bring out one
of the best schools in this part
of the state. Two more teachers
were added in the grades which
relieved matters a greaB deal at
that time and enabled us to place
all the grades in each building
greatly to the pleasure and ad-
vantage of many.
Since the first of the year how-
ever our numbers have so in-
creased that there is almost the
same erowded condition as be-
fore except it is in different
grades from those which were
The teachers in the grades
now have an average of a little
better than 45 pupils each and
some of them are handling two
grades in one room hence this
certainly gives them plenty to do.
It is the intention this year to
give to every child the very best
advantage possible and to this
end no effort has been spared by
either teacher or superintendent,
and it is hoped that we will have
the entire cooperation of every
parent and school friend in this
Regarding the length of term,
we may say that we will be able
to run the full nine months and
that we are and will remain fully
accredited with the state univer-
sity. Even though it were so
that we should fun short just a
few days, there is not a teacher
who does not think enough of the
[school this year to donate a few
The high school department
has very materially grown since
the begihning of the year and
we are still enrolling njw stu-
dents most every day, the num-
ber now reaching near 120.
A course in Dractical book
keeping was placed in the course
last week and there are about 50
students who are taking advant
age of this opportunity. This
subject was placed on the pro-
gram after the regular high
school hours in order to give all
the students an opportunity to
The greatest complaint we
have to make of the people is
their failure to come out and see
just what we are doing in our
school work. There are a great
many who really are not real
certain that there is any school
going on in town and to these we
extend a very cordial invitation
„and ask them to bring others
along. Complaints are usually
not from ^those who visit the
school and know something real
about it but rather from those
who are not acquainted with the
real workings of the school.
Week after next, the first of
the last semester, two more half
year subjects, physical geogra-
phy and botany will be intro
diced in the course which are
all necessary to complete out
eighteen units of credit.
After we shall have become
real well established in our new
quarters it is our intention tn
give a formal opening of the
high school building to which
every one is invited. A date will
be announced later. A little
later than this we shall offer the
public an evening's entertain-
ment which will be put on by the
A patrons club has been lately
established by some of the
woman which we a e sure will
help us a great d^al inour school
work. While this club is still in
its infancy, it is open to all |
women patrons and other new
members are welcomed and ask-
Let t s trust that the last half
of our school this year will be as
pleasant as the first and even
more substantial in its nature
With ' est wishes to all, I am,
Chas, Baldw; j, Supt.
Allen Robbed Hart.
R. L. Hart; alias, Alabama,
did not take a very long vacation,
his money not lasting long
enough. He went to Hobart
with Roy Allen, who proved too
swift for Hart. Below we give
Harts story as related to the
Kio^a county offic ers and pub-
lished in the Daily Democrat of
"R. L, Hart of Cordell was
robbed of seventy dollars at the
Frisco crossing on Fourth street,
Friday night about ten o'clock
by Efcov S. Allen, a supposed
friend of Hart who came to this
city with him on the evening
According to Hart's story
who appeared before County At-
torney Griffith Saturday morn-
ing to have papers issued against
Allen and who told in substance
the same story to Sheriff Terry
Friday night after the robbery
he with Allen came to Hobart
Friday night and intended to go
on to Oklahoma City Saturday.
Hart said that he had been work-
ing for some time in the English
Kitchen at Cordell as a waiter
and had accumulated the money
while working there. He was
off on a few days vacation and
was passing through Hobart.
Allen is a painter and pai er
hanger at Cordell and was known
to Hart, having taken his meals
at the place where the latter was
employed as waiter. When the
two reached Hobart, they went
to the Jefferson hotel, secured a
room and later at the suggestion
of Allen took a walk out over the j
town. Allen, so said Hart, was |
very solicitous about the welfare j
of Hart and yoluntered to lendj
him money. Wh^n Hart told
Allen that he had plenty of
money, the latter gave him the
laugh and said he did not believe
it, The two boys, for Hart is
23 and Allen 26 years of age, had
reached the Frisco crossing on
Fourth street, Hart pulled his
roll consisting mostly of ten dol-
ar bills and proceeded to "un-
strap" it, in order that he
might convince Allen that he was
no pauper. While Hart was un-
folding the bills and counting
them off, Allen made one grab
Following the robbery, Hart
hurried to his room at the Jeffer-
son in the hopes of headin ? off
Allen who had left his grip there.
Allen came to the door of the
hotel and made inquiry of the
proprietor if Hart were in his
room. When told that he was,
Allen again turned and ran and
has not been seen since.
Hart reported the case to the
officers and they went to work
upon the case. A freight train
which passed through Hobart
just after the robbery occured
was searched at Rocky and Bes-
sie but no Alten found, Officers
in towns in every direction
were phoned and it is thought
likely that Allen will be appre-
hended within a few days,"
Allen does not tear the rep-
utation of a saint here, yet, none
of those who know him believed
he had sunk so low as to rob a
friend. A man who will do that
is too mean to eat husks with

Would you take five twenty

it through a keyhole of a
bank? Would that be the
way to deposit $100.00?
No; as a sensible business
man, you would enter dur-

a deposit slip, band it with
the money through the cash-
ier's window, and receive a
