SNYDER AND SOUTH
Lower End of County Reviewed by
—Fact* and Figures
(EDITOR'S NOTE—This is
the second of a series of articles
reviewing the towns and com-
munities of Kiowa county. The
third will appear in an early is-
Situated at the junction of the Ok-
lahoma City-Quannh and the Enid-Ver
non branches of the Frisco railroad,
and oi\ branches of the Ozark Trail
and the D. C. D. and Star highways,
Snyder, in the southern part of Kiowa
county, in the edge of the Wichitas,
is one of the most prosperous towns
in the southwestern part of the state.
This town was founded in 1902, the
year following the opening of the
Kiowa, Comanche and Apache Indian
reservation to settlement and upon
the completion of the Enid-Verron
branch of the Frisco railroad to that
point. Since that time, despite what
might have appeared to many as in-
surmountable obstacles, it has main-
tained a uniform growth and has de-
veloped into a bustling, prosperous
town of many hundred souls.
All branches of industry usually
engaged in by the people of the
southwest are to be found within its
corporate limits and are being prose-
cuted with an intelligence and enthus-
iasm worthy of emulation.
Snyder is situated in the heart of
a good agricultural country, whose
farmers are devoting their attention
, to such crops as have been found best
adapted to the soil and climate. These
are wheat, oats, cotton, the non-sac-
charin sorghums and alfalfa. Live-
stock and dairying are important
branches of agriculture in that vic'n-
Cotton is the most important crop
and yields greater returns to the
farmer than any other sinele crop
produced in that section of the coun-
try. However, a considerable amount
of wheat and other small grain is
produced. Dairying is becoming an
Important industry. Hundreds o*
farmers have a few dairy cattle and
market their cream regularly, and it
is claimed that the amount of money
received from dairy products in that
communtiy stands next to that from
the cotton crop.
In order to give the people of Kio
wa county an idea of what is being
done at Snyder and the progress Sny-
der people is making, a short state-
ment of the various industries and of
the business men of that town is here-
It would require more space than
is at our disposal to frive anything
like a fu'l description of these indus
tries and enterprises, but referenc"

Hardware and Implements
Notwithstanding the large territory
which Snyder serves, only two harr'
ware and implement stores have found
it profitable to locate in that town.
These are Gerhart, Vorrle & Com-
pany, a corporation, and the People'?
Of the former H. L. Vogle is pres:-
dent and business manager: Hugh
Vogle, vice-president, and Alice M.
Vogle, secretary-treasurer. This bus-
iness was established in 1903 for H.
C. Wey & Son by D. F. Vogle, father
of the present president and manager.
A stock company purchased the stove
in 1907, and in 1908 it was incorporat-
ed as Gerhart, Votjle & Co. Since
that time there has teen little change
in the business management.
In addition to carrying a full line
of peneral hardware, Gerhart, Vogle
& Company, carry a full and com-
plete line of farm implements. They
report collection fairly good—excel-
lent. when the condition of the coun-
try i<= taken into consideration.
The People's Hardware Store, own-
v> ami operated bv J. C. Smith and
Roeer Brown, likewise carries a large
stock of rene-al hardware and far"1
implements. Th:« company succeed-
ed the Stofer1 Mercantile Company

reports that, collections have been bet-
ter than the most ontimistic could
have believed two months ago.
Perhans no other town in Kiowa
county has fewer trrocery stores ac-
cordine to population than Snyder.
Only five have found it profitable to
enter this branch of mercahndising
in that town. These are:
The Home Mercantile Co.. T. S
Harkey, manager, was estabbshed
some ten or twelve years ago and has
always done a good business. They
carry a complete lino of groceries of
Massie-Williams is the oldest gro-
cery in Snyder, having boon establish-
ed in 1905. J. E. Williams is gener-
al manager. Tlfls company carries a
full and complete line of high-class
groceries, and does a large volume of
Another of the quintet of groceries
is the Tread well Grocery Store, own-
ed and operated by Tread well Broth-
ers. They have a good lino of popu-
lar brands and enjoy a good patron-
age, both from the town and country.
H. VV. Nunn's grocery is complete
so far as assortment of staple and
fancy groceries is concerned. In ad-
dition to handling groceries, Mr.
Nunn carries a small stock of light
hardware and feed stuff. He is also
one of the largest purchasers of cream
in the town.
Bill Blanton is the fifth to embark
in the grocery business. While his
stock is not as large as that of some
of his competitors, still he can sup-
ply the wants of those who live out
of paper bags.
While Southwestern Oklahoma i:
so healthful that few drugs are needed
to serve the demands of the afflicted
still two drug stores find it profitable
to do business in Snyder. These arc
the Rexall Drug Store and the Ret'
Cross Drug Store.
The Rexall is owned and operate'"
by J. R. Blanchard and Roy Bristow
It was established when that town war
founded in 1902, as the Eagle Drug
Store. Ten years ago it became the
Rexall Store. Mr. Blanchard has
been connected with it for ten years
and his partner, Mr. Bristow, three.
In addition to carrying a full line
of drugs, the Rexall handles cigars
smoking tobacco, candies, phono-
graphs and school supplies. It also op.
erates a soft drink stand.
The Red Cross is owned and oper-
ated by Hugh McCaslin. Like the
Rexall, it was established at the
founding of the town, and does a pros-
perous business even in dull years.
Also, like the Rexall, it carries a corro
plete line of drugs, candies, smokin"
tobaccoes, perfumes, cosmetics and
Dry Goods Stores
Snyder boasts of only four dry
roods stores. One of these is a large
The Bryson Dry Goods Store, of
which Mrs. I. V. Fowler is proprie-
tor, is under the management of J.
N. Bryson. This is perhaps the small-
est of the four, still is carries a com-
plete line of merchandise.
The Stone & Williams Company, of
which C. M. Stone of Mangum and
J. J. Williams of Snyder are propri-
etors, has the largest stock of dry
goods and,' readjJ made clothing in the
city. In fact, it is a department-store
which would do credit to a town sev-
eral times 'larger than Snyder. This
store was established in 1912, and has
at all times done a large volume pf

I he West Oklahoma conference
comprises seven districts. Each dis-
district elects eight lay delegates to
the conference, a total of 56. There
are 150 regular ministers, and about
30 ministers serving as supply, repre-
senting about 400 churches in the con-

ministers who will be present and ex-

ENTITLED TO VOTES
County Nominees all Well Qualified j
for Several Offices to Which
Local issues in the county campaign
are practically nil, and the vurious
nominees are standing on their rec-
ords and qualifications of being the
most eminently fitted to the office to
which each aspires.
The democratic party in Kiowa
county has been signally honoreil by
the voters who exercised their suffrage
the August 1 primary, and the
county ticket is composed of men and
women properly qualified and equip-
ped to give the people the highest
type of public service in the several
Every democratic county nominee
is \frell and favorably known to the
majority of people of the county.
Their records as sterling citizens is
outstanding in their own communities
and throughout the county.
A speaking itinerary, which will
cover every voting precinct in the
county before the date of the election,
November 7, is now in progrss, near-
ly all of the candidates participating,
will give many voters the opportuni-
ty of personally hearing the nominees
present their claims for the offices
they seek .
There should be no deflection of
democratic votes from this ticket. The
candidates are the ones nominated for
the offices by the party will in the
Brief mention is herein made of the
several candidates as their names
will appear on the county ballots:
For County Attorney
John T. Hays is the regular demo-
cratic party nominee for county at-
torney. He is one of the pioneer
lawyers of Kiowa county, a heavy
taxpayer, and a capable attorney. He
is not new in the office of which he
is the nominee, having served Kiowa
county a term in this important of-
fice. Judge Hays is a man of mature
age, an experienced lawyer and in
every way well qualified for the po-
sition of county attorney.
For County Judge.
County Judge John Sam Carpenter
is the candidate for county judge. He
is running for re-election. The judge
has served Kiowa county faithfully
in the past, and an introduction
through these columns is hardly nec-
essary in behalf of Mr. Carpenter.
His friends are legion; he has been
a faithful public servant, and will be
returned to office in November by a
T. P. (Tom) Shaddock was nomi-
nated by the Kiowa county democrats
for the office in a field of nine can-
didates. Tom has served the county
as county assessor on two different
occasions, filling this office to the
utmost satisfaction of all concerned.
As sheriff he can be relied upon to
give the county the same careful ser-
vice as in the office of assessor. A
vote for Mr. Shaddock means that
law enforcement in Kiowa county
will be continued in the future as in
the past under democratic adminis-
For County Clerk
Perry W. Carlton is serving his
first term as county clerk. Two years
ago he was elected by a good plural-
ity, and was re-nominated in the
democratic primary. His two year's
service as a public servant has been
without criticism and he has faithful-
ly and intelligently served the peo-
ple of the county. His experience as
county clerk, and formerly deputy in
the office give him ever/ qualifica-
tion to continue serving the people of
For County Superintendent.
Kiowa county has been fortunate
the past two years in securing a wo-
man of Mrs. Alexander's qualifica-
tions and high citizenship, to preside
over the destinies of the schools of
the county. Mrs. Alexander was in
ducted into office in July. 1921, am'

intendent. Without ferr or favor

-virions acro'dVr to lew. and to the
''est of her ability. Mr*. Alexande

For County Assessor
Harry B. White, formerly county
clcrk, a competent and capable offi-
cial, was given tho nomination for
county assessor. Mr. White is fully
conveioant with the duties of assess-
or. His past record as a public sol-
vent is outstanding and he should re-
ceive a big majority in the general
For County Treasurer
Claude Ligget, nominated for the
office of county treasurer, is new in
polities in Kiowa county, being a
young man of excellent habits. While
new in politics he is not new to court
house officials, having held several
important deputyships under some of
the present officials, and during this
service he has familiarized himself
with the duties of the office, and at
the same time qualifying himself for
the position to which he was nomi-
For County Surveyor
Guy Keiger the preBent county
surveyor and county engineer, is un-
opposed in the general election. Mr.
Keiger has held this place for several
years and has given satisfactory ser-
vice. In the state examination given
county engineer's Mr. Keiger scored
the highest rating of any man in the
For County Weigher.
Mrs. Maggie England, present
county weigher, is without opposition
in the general election. Her name
will appear on the general election
ticket and every voter should give her
his or her vote on November 7.
The democrats have three represen-
tative men nominated for the board
of county commissioners. Geo. E.
Neal, in the first district is a success-
ful farmer, and is held in the high-
est esteem in his neighborhood, north-
east of Hobart, and by everyone who
In the second district J. J. McMil-
lan is the nominee. Mr. McMillan
has formerly represented this distinct
on the board. He is a capable and
conservative man, and during his for-
mer terms of office more than made
In the third district A. H| Rogers,
formerly county commissioner, is
again the nominee, being nominated
over several other candidates. Like
Mr. McMillan he knows what the
couftty needs from a commissioner
and is therefore qualified to serve
the best interests, not only of his own
district but all parts of the county.
Hobart township is represented by
Tilden Gooch, for trustee; Dan Hutch-
erson, for clerk, and Geo. E. Diehl
for treasurer. All three of these men
are well and favorably known through
out their township.
In the justice district, represented
by Hobart city, two justices and two
constables are to be elected. W. L.
Hunter, justice and Walter Carter,
constable, are at present serving the
district and were re-nominated. Jesse
Phillips for justice and Harry Enochs
for constable, are the other nominees.
On The State Ballot
The name of Judge J. R. Tolbert
will appear on the state ballot for
representative from Kiowa county.
Mr. Tolbert was formerly district
judge of this district, and is at pres-
ent practicing law in Hobart. As
member of the lower house of the Ok-
lahoma legislature, Mr. Tolbert will
be in a position to intelligently rep-
resent Kiowa county, and will be
found among the most progressive of
the law makers of that body.
A. W. Darnell of Clinton, is the
democratic candidate for state sena-
tor from the sixth senatorial district,
of which Kiowa county i.i a part. The
name of Judge Thos A. Edwards for
re-election as district judge, will also
appear on the state ballot. The name
of Jim McClintic, present representa-
tive in congress from the seventh
congressional district, is a candidate
to succeed himself. His name will be
found on the state ballot. These men
should all be given a big democratic
vote on November 7.

Gasoline Explosion at Ozark Gas &
Petroleum Company's Pumping
House Sets Him on Fire.
Orlen Hungerford, an employe of
the Ozark Gus & Petroleum Com-
pany, was seriously, though probably
not futally, burned at 3 o'clock Mon-
day afternoon as a result of an ex-
plosion of gas in the metal pump
house, at the company's station on the
Frisco right-of-way, a short distance
north of the Frisco passenger depot.
The young man had been sent to
pump a car of gasoline from a rail-
way tank into the company's storage
tanks. He had made the connections
for the' operation and apparently had
gone into the pump house to start the
electrical machinery when the explo-
sion occurred) However, he did not
pull the switch.
As a result of the explosion his
clothing was set on fire. He ran out
and called for help. F. H. Osmond,
a fellow employe, and C. A. Allen,
manager of the Texas Company,
whose station is onl a few hundred
feet away, ran to his assistance and
quickly removed the burning gar-
ments, not, however, until the unfor-
tunate young man was badly burned
from his neck to his ankles. His
head, neck and feet were the only
members that escaped.
As quickly as possible the young
man was taken to a physician's of-
fice up town for attention. Later in
the afternoon he was taken to his
home. At last report he was getting
along reasonably well.
The explosion set the pump house
on fice, making it necessary to sum-
mon the fire department to extinguish
the blaze. A chemical engine was
employed and the fire!" was soon under
control, not, however, until the pump
house and machinery were practically
The fire waa within twenty feet of
a full tank of gasoline' on the railroad
tracks and less than that distance
from two large storage tanks owned
by the Ozark people. Had these been
touched off the whole town would
have been thoroughly shaken by the
explosion, to say nothing of the pro-
bable damage by fire.
FROM JAIL TO ALTAR.
M. C. Sunderland and Miss Inez
Marshall, both of Lugert, were united
in marriage at the court house Sun-
day, Justice of the Peace W. L. Hun-
The groom had been in jail for a
week or more upon an information
charging him with seduction under
promise of marriage.
After incarceration the groom re-
consedered his alleged refusal to mar-
ry Miss Marshall, the woman whom
he was accused of having wronged,
and let it be known that he wished
to communicate with her. In the
meantime the bride joined the Holi-
ness church, and members of the body
held a meeting at the jail last week.
Miss Marshall was present on that
occsion, but Sunderland remained in
the back ground.
The father of the young man in-
terested himself in the affair and ac-
ted as go-between, to bring about a
settlement. As a result of his efforts
his son promised to make good hi
former promise, on condition that the
county attorney would dismiss the
charges against him.
The county attorney was not averse
to such a course and gave his prom*
ise, warning the defendant, however,
that unless he lived with her and pro-
vided for her support he would re-file
the case. Sunderland agreed to the
conditions, and Sunday morning the
! bride came to Hobart, when the mar-
riage was performed as above stat-
