The company opened iu "Teu

"A Man of Mystery" and "Bows-

Gale is by far the beBt soubrette
ever seen here, her winsome aud
altogether delightful portrayal of
her various parts pleasing every
audience. Arthur McAdams is a
versatile character man, an ex
ca„)tioually strong performance
being bis portrayal of "the shad'

Edward Williams has a good line

M. 8. Fowler aud family, of
Ridgeway, Mo„ are uew residents
of Altus, ftud are occupying the
old Rogera building on North
Main street fts ft re sidence while
their new house is iu course of
ooustroction. Mr. Fowler is
building ft ueftt house in the
southeast part of town, the plaua
and specifications for which were
drawn in Missouri, the lumber
bought and sawed there, aud
each aud every part of the
structure was cut out, propor-
tioned and assembled, ready to
be placed iu the house here. The
parts were numbered, marked
and assorted, and everything to
used iu construotiou, even to
the screen doors and windows, is
in readiness for tho builder, who
has nothing to do but assemble
the parts aud put each iu its
proper place. Mr. Fowler says
that by buyiug his house in this
manner he saved sufficient money
to pay his eutire freight bill on
all his effects, lumber and all,
from Missouri to Altus.

Another Joint Session of the City Council

The city dads aud the business
men of Altus met at the opera
house Friday night to disenss
plans for securing a water supply,
also to open bids from bond buy-
ers who had made offerings for
Altus water aud light bouds.
The bids for the bonds were all
rejected. Oae was from a Chica-
go firm ot bond brokers, who of-
fered $600 premium, but failed
to accompany their bid with a
certified check. A representa-
tive of the McCoy-McDonald Co.
of Chicago, who was present, of-
fered $340 premium, provided the
bunds were made which of
course was out of the question.
So he was likewise turned down,
and further bids invited. The
Times is informed the couucil is
holdiug out for $1,000 prem-
ium, aud we hope they'll stick to
it. The bouds are worth every
cent of it, and we need the
