Proposes to Build State
Refinery at Wuskogee
MuBkogee Okla. Sept. 20. There is
considerable difference in opinion
among oil men as to whether or not
it would be a good thing for the state
of Oklahoma to build pipe lines to
some central point and there have a
large refinery. All agree that it would
be a good thing for the independent
producer but the majority seem to
doubt whether tne state could operate
it at a profit.
"It would be a good thing for the"
oil producer but I have my doubts
whether it would be a good thing for
the tax payer" said John WIsener a
Muskogee oil producer. "I am heartily
in favor of one thing and that is for
such a refinery to be located in Mus-
kogee. Such a proposition would re-
lieve the oil men of the state but the
question resolves itself to the old prob-
lem: 'How would such an institution
be operated?' If you have the right
person at the bead of it it will go
but if you haven't it will be a failure."
Charles T. Madison a practical re-
finery man says that the scheme is
Impractical. "We already have re-
fineries In the state which are doing
all the business they can handle. A
state refinery which would distribute
oil would be a loss io the state. It
may be a good thing for the oil pro-

Madison then gave figures relative
to the cost of refining freight rates
etc. which showed that the independ-
ent refinery had to be managed close-
ly to make money.
"If the state wants to relive the oil
producers of the state let it build a
large pipe line to the gulf or seaport
and there have large storage tanks. In
this manner the Oklahoma oil would
have the market of the world. If the
state could not build direct to the gulf
and would build to Memphis where the
oil could be carried to the seaboard
in barges it would furnish relief but
not so much as a direct line to the
Other oil men declined to make a
statement declaring that they had giv-
en it little thought and that they did
not believe the state could build a
pipe line to a seaport.
NO REORGANIZATION OF
Guthrie Okla. Sept. 25. The organ-
ization republicans seem confident
that the members of the state com-
mittee who are Beeking an immediate
reorganization of the committee will
not succeed in their efforts.
One of the organization republi-
cans said today: "Chairman Norris
will be back in Oklahoma within a
few weeks and will have his head-
quarters here. It was the opinion of
National Chairman' Hitchcock that
Norris should remain at the head of
the Oklahoma organization for the
present at least. Upon leaving for a
temporary absence in Washington
Chairman Norris named Jim Harris
of Wagoner as acting chairman which
was the natural and logical thing to
do as Harris is treausrer of the com-
mittee and next in line to Norris.
There are only about six members of
the state committee who would
stand for a reorganization at this time.
The clamor for the election of a new
chairman comes mostly form republi-
cans not members of the committee.

END LONG JDURUEY
Oklahoma City Extends Hearty Re-
ception to Sons of John Aher-
nathy on Return From Trip.
Okalhoma City Okla. Sept. 25.
When Louis aud Temple Ahernathy
aged 8 and 5 years respectively
reach Oklahoma City this afternoon
they will have completed a journey of
2500 miles alone and accomplished
an endurance feat without parallel
in the annals of juvenile athletics. As
a mark of appreciation Oklahoma City
will extend to the youthful riders a
reception with features as unique as
the feat the sturdy sons of the United
States marshal have completed.
Plans for the reception are now
complete. Tenatively they include an
outdoor greeting to be given on a
Broadway avenue corner where a
platform will have been erected. On
this platform clad in their riding hab-
its and with the dust of travel yet on
their brows the boys will acknowl
edge the greeting and in short
speeches touch on the "high places
of their Journey. A parade will follow
after which the boys will be permitted
to bathe and change clothes in pre-
paration for a dinner at the Thread-
gill in the evening. At this dinner
speeches will be delivered by Mayor
Scales the Ahernathy boys their
father and probably others. Outside
the city the boys will be met by a com-
mittee who will escort them into town.
Five weeks ago next Sunday Louie
and Temple Abernathy set out on
their long Journey from their father's
farm near Frederick their saddles
packed with clothes slickers drinking
cups and other necessary accountre-
ments with a few expense nickels
jingling in their pockets and their
youthful hearts beating with courage.
Without mishap accident a day of
sickness or a single important hind
rance they reached Roswell N. M.
the destination originally planned and
then pushed farther westward until
they reached the portals of the exe-
cutive mansion at Santa Fe when
Governor Curry and other prominent
men of the territory became their
hosts. Their return journey has been
void of accident but replete with in
cident and the Ahernathy boys are
the kind to tell it.

they will not drop their eyes if you
have the nerve to give one a look of
this kind such a look hr would be
considered extremely rude in any
American city the chances are when
you meet her for the next turn you
will be rewarded with a smile and a
challenge from the black eyes and if
vou have a sufficient stock of nerve in
reserve you will speak to her nn;l
pay her some complimentary remark
upon the first opportunity that offers.
This is good breeding and will not be
resented. Should you then become In-
fatuated with the lady you will
search out her home visit her barred
window and mope under it for an
hour or two every morning; and if
you impress her favorably she will
make your heart glad by talking with
vou through the bars or dropping lit-
fle scented notes to you. Should you
become real serious you will hire a

As Thl Writer Says Her Age It Htr
Own and Mere Man Must Not
Man has no right to question wom-
an's age to even think about it. A
woman bless her is as old as she
makes out or makes up and not a
day older. Man is out of his latitude
when he begins trying to locate wora
an's age longitude. It Is her privilege
to conceal her age in any form or
manner she may choose and it is
man's prerogative to assist her as
much as possible rather than binder
or question her in any way. Man
owes it to himself to see that she U
supplied with every means of con-
cealing her age or any new wrinkle
which she chooses to keep from the
gaze of the over-curious public.
Man is not supposed to be young or
beautiful. He couldn't be if he wanted
to be and he wouldn't be if he could.
With woman it Is different. She wants
to be and can be and is whether she
wants to be or not and it U a whole
lot better for her and for her ad-
mirer or admirers as the case may
be that her age be carefully guarded
under that charming veil of mystery
which should ever be hers by right of
possession. Forget tbat she has an
age brother and you will be happier
aud bo will she but don't for heaven's
sake forget that she has a birthday.
What Robert Wat.
The mother of Clara aged four and
of Robert aged six was looking at
Bats. Robert accompanied her. Final-
ly she found an apartment at her price
which she thought she would like.
The Janitor's wife who acted as
agent thought she would like Robert's
mother too but she wasn't sure about
"You say there is another one at
home?" she said. "That makes two.
We have a rule against admitting
children. Still if the little girl is as
nice as the little boy seems to be"
here she patted Robert's head affec-
tionately "I don't know but whut it
will be all right."
Robert brushed off the approving
"Don't you fool yourself about me
he said Indignantly. "I'm a regular
lievil of a fellow I am."

THOUGHT HIS TIME HAD" COME
Fervent Prayer That .Went Up From
Man at Bottom of Well at Mercy
of Wicked Wag.
An old man in Georgia named Jack
laid win having lost his hat in an old
'ry well one day bitched a rope to a
itump and let himself down. A wicked
vag named Neal came along Just then
ind quietly detaching a bell from
Baldwin's old blind horse approached
he well bell in hand and began to
Jack thought the old horse was coni-
ng and said "Hang the old blind
horse! He's coming this way sure
tod he ain't got no more sense than
o fall In on me. Whoa Hall!"
The sound came closer.
"Great Jerusalem! The old blitij
fool will be right on top of me In a
ninit! Whoa Hall! Whoa haw
Neal kicked a little dirt on Jack's
head and Jack began to pray:
"Oh Lord have mercy on Whoa
Rail! a poor sinner I'm gone now!
Whoa Rail! Our Father who are in
whoa Hall hallowed be Thy gee!
Wbat'll I do? name. Now I lay me
down to si gee Hall!" Just then in
fell more dirt. "Oh Lord if you ever
Intend to do anything for me back
Ball! Whoa Thy kingdom come
gee Ball Oh Lord you know I was
baptized in Smith's milldain whoa
Ball! Ho up! Murder! . Whoa!"
Neal could hold in no longer and
shouted a laugh which might have
been heard two miles which was
about as far as Jack chased him win n
he got out.

A negro preacher was conducting
his flock through York town and had
led them to the government reserva-

of the column and asked:
