''Alfalfa Bill" Murray made a speech at Man-
um O. T. on April iird. in which it is said he
; "roasted" the Oklahoman and stated that he once
paid a note for Lee Cruce the Ardmorebanker
I who is a Democratic candidate for governor of
5 the new state. Murray is working in the inter-
' st of Haskell of Muskogee.
The loader of the socialists says that the
Roosevelt agitation is a great help to the cause.

retired list with the rank of captain and at that
time was the youngest captain on the retired

There is a quaint little tale connect-
ed with this fountain. When the foun-;

Just at this time there was dug up
rifar tho city a wonderful statue of a;
pagan goddess find tho people raised
the statue which was ravishlnsly j
beautiful to stand above the fountain.
That year men said tho evil eye had j
fallen upon Siena. ;
Enemies lurked at her cates and bo-
nicpod her walls. Within there was
ft rife rapine and murder until tho
streets fairly ran with blood. At last !
they murmured. j
"Surely" they cried "we have
placed a heathen g.xldess nluive our
fountain and therefore Is heaven sore
displeased and misfortune 1ms been
sH'nt upon us. Let us tear down this
pagan thing and good will come of It."
Forthwith ihey removed the beau
tiful statue and with much ceremony
bore It outside the city Rates. Then
desiring to lae it where it would do
them the most good they carefully
"with thrifty hatred." burled the stat-
ue upon Florentine soil hoping to
transfer their own bad luck to their
