There has probably never
been a meeting of this Council |
in which there has been so|
much enthusiasm and so much |
; optimism. Without a single ex- j
ception a larger enrollment and I
| a larger attendance was report-1
!ed from the schools and this1
| notwithstanding the fact that in
! pome of the towns in which the j
•schools are located high schools
have been put in operation this j
year for the first time. This
tendency would Qf course be to |
lessen the number, as the high |
schools must of necessity draw!
considerably from the local pat-
ronage of the schools.
Each of the Normal Schools
has a member on the rural
school commission and the re-
ports from all sections were to
the effect that the county ral-
'les, the state-wide campaign
for better rural schools, and the
moonlight school propositions
were all progressing in a way
which foreboded the complete
'elimination of illiteracy from
the state of Oklahoma within
the next few years.
Each Normal School and each
of the preparatory schools has

Council present was confident
that we were in the beginning!
of the greatest school year in
the history of the state.
We have some fine planes, hammers, chisles and other

YOU men who have delayed buying
Fall clothes—and you who think of
fcoin& through the season without new
clothes, for the sake of economy—
Just now, you can have a suit or overcoat
tailored to your individual order, with the assur-
ance that your investment will pay bi& dividends
in clothes service and satisfaction.
If you make your selection from the Bern line of pure
■wool cloths and have it tailored in the Bom shops, your suit
or overcoat will serve you all this season—and serve you
equally veil a&ain next Fill, and Winter, when the scarcity
of .wool and fast dyes will raise the price of^ood clothes.
But yon can't £,ct two seasons' satisfactory service from
most clothes—that's why Born .s preferred.
Better step in now and economize by ordering a Born
suit— supreme in value.
