The Old Cabinet Maker Says: That the new, tall

with its Special Drawers and Wealth of Room, makes an
addition to a bed-room as desirable for its usefulness as
for its remarkale beauty. If there is a place in your bed
room that looks bare, or you need more drawer capacity
there is nothing with which you can find to take place of a

A NANS BEST FRIEND
IS HIS BANKBOOK
A Day of Trouble
is not ho greatly dreaded if
you have one of onr deposit
books with a good sum to
yonr credit; in fact, it
proves to be "the friend in-
deed." Do not negleot
this important matter; see
to it at once that you start
a bank account however
small aud then add all you
can spare to it. Remember

On Monday a fire broke out in
Eddy destroying considerable
property, including the store

M. E. Wilkinsou has sold the
lease on his school quarter to a
Kentucky man for $1900, Jim
Teter handling the deal.
A representative) was here from
the government fisheries the latter
part of last week, with a stock of
525 rock bass, to be put in the lakes
near Manchester. As most of the
water is gone from several of the
lakes the fish were all put into Cris
Nelson's big lake south of town
Mr. Hodson, as fish and game war-
den, is certainly a rustler when it
comes to getting fish for our lakes
but seems to be somewhat handi-
capped in the matter of getting
water for the fish.
Pond Creek News.
At a business meeting of the
members of the Pond Creek Boost-
er Band Monday night the follow-
ing officers were elected: Presi-
dent, O. L. Miles; vice-president,
George Doran; secretary, Ollie
Whitelock; treasurer, Allie Streek
er; director, W. R. Benson; ex-
ecutive committee, W. R. Benson,
Geo. Doran and Dave Perry. The
boys are practicing out on some
new music and arrangements ai'e
being made to give a public con-
T. J. Kliina is haiding sand pre-
paratory to erecting a fine new res
idence early next spring. The new
house will cost somewhere in the
neighborhood of $3,500.
E. House recently sold a suck-
ling uiule to Joseph Loekhart for
$100—and it wasn't much mule
either. Did some one say livestock
is growing cheaper.
Joseph Dvorak left Wednesday
for Colorado Springs, where he will
spend a week or ten days with his
brother, who is iu the Woodman
sanitarium at that place.
The Bank of Jefferson received
its new safe Tuesday and has it
placed iu the front window of the
building. It is a Mosler safe and
guaranteed burglar proof—nitro-
glycerin, dynamite or gun-cotton
cannot wreck the thing. It does
not look to be very large on the
inside but Mr. Kelly says it will
hold all the paper money in the
county very easily'. This safe is
made of managanese steel, which
is the hardest and tonghest cast
steel made. The Bank of Jeffer-
son seems to be very fortunate in
that the bank robbery a few weeks
ago did not cost the institution a
cent. Mr. Kelly reveived a draft
from the insurance company a few
days ago for $3,433. This covered
every item of los6—even the effect
of the explosions to the inside of
the building and furniture.
J. R. Potter and son, Ed left
Wednesday for Idaho where the
latter lives and where the former
will spend the winter with his
children. J. R. has been anxi-
ous to go for some time but of
course he had to stay and vote
but we noticed that as soon as the
returns began coming in which
showed that the naughty demo-
crats had swept the country from
Maine to California and that
Oklahoma had again gone demo-
cratic Uncle Jim couldn't stand
it auy longer and left on the first
train to escape the awful joshers.
The writer has often in the past
wished he could do that.
Elder H. L. Derr, of Jersiey
ville, Illinois, preached to the
Baptist people of Nashville Sun-
day, Nov. 20 with the pastorate
in the view. Eldor Derr is to
be permanently located in Enid,
Pond Creek Videtie.
The people of southern Grant
county were pained to learn last
Thursday evening ot the death of
a pioneer of this county—Jonah
Haddix, who died at his home ia
Garfield county Thursday morn-
ing, November 17, 1910. His
illness was not generally known
of to his friends and neighbors
here until the news of his death
County Attorney and Mrs. J.
B. Drennan drove down from
Medford Tuesday morning. Mr.
Drennan and a party of friends
drove into the county from here
for a hunt, while Mr. Drennan
spent the day with friends in
Pond Creek. Mr. Drennan tells
us that he tendered his resigna-
tion as county attorney to the
county commissioners last week
but the board refused to take
action in the matter. Mr. Dren-
nan desires to resume his private
practice and is anxious to get rid
of the office as soon as possible.
Judge J. G. McKelvy was
down from Medford on legal
business Monday morning.
Rev. E. C.Sloan, who has been
pastor of the First Baptist church
in Pond Creek for a year or more,
has resigned his charge. Mr.
Sloan made his retirement known
in his services last Sunday night,
giving as his reason insufficient
salary. The resignation is to
take effect the first of December.
J. D. Butts drove over to Gol-
try and Cherokee last Thursday
returning home Sunday. He
went on business connected with
the Farmers' National bank of
Cherokee, of which he is vice
president and principal stock
holder. His grand-son, Master
Charles Homer Delzell, returned
with him to remain over Thanks-
giving. The young man's par-
ents, Mr. and Mrs. Chas. Delzell
came over last evening to spend
Thanksgiving also, and Master
Charles will return home with
them when they return.
One of our citizens received a lib-
eral sprinkling of shot one day last
week as a penalty for getting in
range of one of the Wakita quail
hunters. The farmer should exer-
cise more care sn passing along the
public highway when auy of those
celebrated hunters are in the vicin-
ity. What does the risk of a life
amount to when a city man is liun
gry for quail?
Trap Club Organized.
A number of Wakita sportsmen
interested in trap shooting met at
P. F. Wright's store Tuesday night
and organized the Wakita Trap
Club. R. B. Hogan was elected
secretary and treasurer and ar-
rangements were made to put in a
new trap and fix up good shooting
H. J. Donnelly, representing the
DuPont Powder Co., was presnt
and agreed to have Herr, the
champion trap shooter of the world
here for an exhibition shoot some
time next month. Mr. Donnelly
shot a few clay birds at the grounds
in the afternoon and surprised
some of the local enthusiasts who
had been breaking about every
other bird. Mr. Donnelly explain-
ed, however, that anyone could do
as good as he if they would prac-
tice and use nothing but DuPont
The Club dues will be practically
nothing and every one interested
in trap shootrng is urged to enroll
as a member.
Postmaster Farr, of Sand Creek
was in town Saturday. He is
greatly improved from his recent
sickness but even now is hardly
able to be around.
S. L. Jarboe had a runaway
last Thursday. When leaving
town his team became frightened
at St Clair's white hogs and ran
from the depot for a mile north
There they bumped into a tele-
phone pole and throwing Mr.
Jarboe out bruised him consider-
