GUYMON, OKLAHOMA, THURSDAY, JULY 1, 1915.
l a*s the l'ie. Please
County Superintendent-elect Rath-
bun became imbued with the idea—
nobody knows when—that his term
of office should begin on the first
day of the month instead of on the
first Monday in July, as provided by
the Oklahoma statutes, and came to
Guymon from Goodwell last Satur-
day for the purpose of arranging for
bond and making the other neces-
sary arrangements to shoulder the
stupendous responsibility attached to
serving the "pee-pul," and also, and
above all, to begin pulling down the
pre-requlsite. The first of the month
fell on Thursday, and the commis-
sioners do not meet until the first
.Monday of each monfh. Four days'
salary looked good to the professor,
evidently, as he insisted and pre-
vailed upon County Clerk Grimm
posting the necessary notices and is-
suing a call for a special meeting of
the commissioners in order that he
might be furnished the necessary
credentials to start the said kale
seed rolling Rathbunward. Miss
Lynch had not been spoken to about
the matter, and when Dale, Bratton
and other officials pointed out the
error to Mr. Grimm the matter,
with profuse apologies, fell with
dull, sickening thud. The anxiety of
the professor to get to the pie coun-
ter was amusing to everyone familiar
with the incident, and especially to
some of his democratic colleagues.

A Had Mud Hole
Out on the road leading south
from Guymon, near the Frank Couch
farm, about one mile from town, Is
perhaps the worst mudhole In Texas
county. It reaches across the entire
width of the lane, and pulling
through it is beyond the possibility
of a Ford, while a man with a loaded
wagon, no matter how good and true
the team, has no chance at all. Nat-
urally, the travel turns into the field
alongside, which is very annoying to

Ituna way Accident
Sunday afternoon while driving a
spirited horse near the home of M.
R. Rose a line broke and the buggy
was upset, throwing the occupants,
Fay Ratliff and Miss Nola Splvey,
to the ground. Mr. Ratliff escaped
with slight bruises, while we learn
that Miss Splvey was less fortunate,
suffering a dislocation of the left
shoulder joint together with a num-
ber of minor Injuries. Miss Splvey
was taken to the home of Mr. Phi 1-
llppe, where she received the neces-
sary surgical attention. At last ac-
counts she was doing nicely.

VisltH His Alma Mater
John L. Gleason, one of Guymon's
leading legal lights, returned Thurs-
day from Madison, Wisconsin, after
an absence of ten days. At a ban-
quet given the class of fifty-four law
student graduates in 1905 at the
University of Wisconsin It was agreed
that each would endeavor to visit
his alma mater ten years hence, con-
sequently Mr. Gleason had looked
forward to this visit with much
pleasure. He was not disappointed.
Accident to Engineer
Wednesday evening about dark
John E. Hoiralund of Dalhart, Texas,
engineer on east bound local freight,
was seriously Injured about the head
while working near the depot. While
uncoupling the air hose the air pres-
sure threw one end of the hose
against Mr. Holmlund's nose with
such force as to fracture the bones
of the nose. Outside of pain and
shock no serious apprehension was
felt, but the bleeding became so pro-
fuse and constant that surgical at-
tention was sought. It was only
after repeated efforts and the most
drastic procedure that the bleeding
was finally checked. Mr. Holmlund
j was taken to Dalhart on No. 3

j hemorrhage recurred the following

the following item, which vlll In-

Nichols; "Miss Mary Nichols of
Guymon, Oklahoma, one of Madame
Groft Bryant's promising dramatic
sopranos, sang Sunday morning at
the Unlvesallst church,- "O God Be

their former college chums and lis-

Another feature of this important
event was the Beml-centennial of the
class of '6.*. Fifty long years had
slipped away since the pride of the
University of Wisconsin had sep-
arated and drifted out into the world
to seek their fortune, resolving to
return at the end of half a century.
But alas! only two of this class were
present to enjoy the festivltlerf of
this honored occasion. AIbo the class
