Mr. Taft attacked the democratic

Secretary Allard's Message
The University Heights Addition lots are going pretty rapidly
You'li have to hurry if you get in on the deal.
This lot sale Instead of being a matter of duty is indeed a
There is not on single lot in the entire 424 that is not a bar-
gain as p'.aced before the people.
The entire addition overlooks Chickasha and the country sur-
rounding in all directions.
It is one of Nature's most rare acd beautiful plots.
Oue to appreciate the charming location and the lay of the
lots as platted should drive out to University Heights Addition
and view it from all the stand points.
The west part of the grounds where is the draw and slope
are taken up by the college site and park hence every remaining
lot lies up high and dry.
There Is not a lot in the entire addition that will not be worth
$300 so soon as the street railroad runs into it and they will vary
in price at that moment between that and $6oo and in a few years
they will be worth two to five times what they will cost.
The terms are easy;
Twenty-five dollars cash; $25 in sixty days and $25 in ninety
days; $115 when the street railroad is running cars on the line
running into the addition and ft 10 when the intcrurbaa is runaing
cars between Chickasha and Sulphur.
An investor cannot lose anything in the proposition if Chick-
asha continues to grow in the future as it has in the past and we
are all confident that it will do that.
Not one cent has to be paid after the $75 is satisfied un-
til the street railroad runs Into the addition and it must be built
and running cars within one year.
Not one cent more is then to be paid until the interurban is
running cars between Chickasha and Sulphur and the cars must
be running before September ist 1910 or the $t 10 is yours to
Thus it will be seen that there is no danger of loss and yet
A great opportunity for speculation by drawing corner lots
lots one block from street railroad lots facing on the Bonlevaid
lots facing the college campus and in near vicinity of the park.
All this should be an incentive to the man that had an eye at
all toward getting good returns upon an investment.
Thert is no better opportunity afforded as we look at it for a
real genuine money making investment on small capital.
BUT THE DOGS MADE QUICK WORK
OF IT-HUNTERS HAD
Leaving town at four o'clock this
morning with a large pack of dogs a
party of local hunters returned In a
few hours having a wolf and a deer to
show for their prowess.
Several weeks ago a pet deer be-
longing to Ike Harness escaped and
from time to time efforts were made
to catch it. The animal grew wilder
the longer it ran and it became evi
dent that it didn't propose to return
to captivity without giving its pursu-
ers a good chase. It was the intention
of the hunters to lasso It after the
dogs had brought it to bay but be-
fore they could reach the spot where
it was finally caught the canines had
buried their teeth in its body and life
The chase took place a few miles
south of town ar.d those who partici-
pated in it were Emraett Goodwin
Mart Louthoan Joe Dews J. S. Kil-
gore Julius Doss r.nd Mr. Harness.

He had not wholly recovered from the
effects of this assault.
The assault here was made by two
white men one of whom struck Mc-
Curren over the head with a club.
Ether or chloroform was then admin-
istered and his life was despaired of
for a few days after which he rapidly
recovered. Robbery was not the mo-

being left upon the victim.
Several theories were advanced for
the assault but the police believed
