A. E. CHURCH LAWN SUNDAY EVENING
The Union Services being held
at the different churches are
gaining in attendance and in-
terest. Everybody feel that
this is one of the most import-
ant moves ever made in connect-
ion with cooperation in the
Churches. Rev. Harry S. Scott
preached an excellent sermon at
the Christian Church last Sun-
day evening. The meeting will
be next Sunday evening on the
Methodist lawn. You are in-
Not Too Old To Learn
On his one hundreth birthday
Benjamin Westof Belleville, Mo.
declared himself an advocate of
Democracy after fifty years of
Republicanism. He has watched
the tide of true Democracy and
the receding of Republicanism
until he was so thoroughly dis-
gusted that he could not finish
his life without making restitu-
tion for the time lost. To change
a political career that has been
fixed for fifty years proves that
there is something in the wind
that is very l’emarkable, arid
there are many that will become
inoculated with the same germs
before November. You never
get too old to learn, but you can-
not do your country justice if
you do not change now. Do it
The party the old gentleman
will support now is much young-
er than himself, and we hope he
will be allowed the privilege of
living till November so he may
cast his desired vote and redeem
The Bloomer Girls will play
the Santa Fe Boys here on Sept-
ember lfith next Monday week.
This game is looked to with
much interest and a great big
turn out is expected of course,
as all will be anxious to see the
girls walk right off with the
high score. Of course the boys
think they have an E. Z. job in
walking off with the feathers in
their caps, but to be sure of
winning we would advise them
to get the Methodist nine as they
are the only sure nine that we
W. G. Bessy, who is officing
at Alva, came down Sunday to
look after has business here.
W. G. is a fine attorney, has
been practicing in Waynoka a-
bout two years and is thorough-
ly familiar with his profession
and well liked by our citizen-
Judge Carney, District Judge
of Oklahoma City District, and
nominee for Congressman of this
the Second District, was the
main speaker at the big ratifica-
tion meeting in Alva last Satur-
day, and his speech was listened
to by a big crowd of the Demo-
crats of Woods county, and to
say it was a good oneiis putting
it too mild, for it was a hum-
dinger and drove the points to
the right spot.
The campaign committee was
selected and all other business
dispensed with in excellent style
and all Democrats are now lined
up for the battle.
Dave Frawley of Alva spent
last Sunday with his parents
here and left Tuesday for Okla-
homa City where he will spend
the next several months attend-
ing to his new duties as Secre-
tary of the State Campaign Com-
mittee, of which he was appoint-
ed at the State Convention last
Died At Carmen
The only little daughter, Noris.
of Rev. and Mrs, Bandy, Pastor
of the Baptist Church at that
place, was burried at Carmen
last Sunday afternoon. This
was a sweet bright child and was
loved by everyone. The funeral
services were conducted by Rev.
Tally of Cherokee.
The sweetest brightest flowers
are always plucked first, as they
have a tendency to draw their
admirers, and she is now as a
beautiful flower transplanted,
and touched by a Devine hand is
blooming in richer color and
sweeter fragrance than those of
K. Cohlmia has just returned
trom the Eastern Markets w here
he purchased a fine line of Fall
Goods. This store is always fill-
ed with up-to-now goods.
Last Monday evening the
Congregational and Methodists
crossed bats on the Miller Diam-
ond for the second time this
season, and were playing a verj
interesting game and had reach-
ed the sixth inning when it was
suggested by Rev. Scott that
they postpone the finishing
touches till the dry weather was
broken, for it was really cruelty
to dumb animals to go farther
into the depths of the game
with out a refreshing shower.
The Methodist boys are a fast
team and are to be depended up-
on to play a game to the finish
after we get a good soaking
rain. The score stood when the
game was called, ll to 7 in fav-
or of the Congregational boys.

and John Wedb, were visitors to

over the loss of our sister and co-
worker, Mrs. Mary Evans, who

E. Armstrong Improving
Mrs. A. M. Armstrong who
was called to Chicago sometime

serious illness of her brother
who died while she was'there,

tend the bedside of her little

Mr. Cope has boen in business

We regret very much to see

School Opened Monday
Last monday morning our town
was in a great stir, as the doors
of our school for the present
term were loosed and the great
crowds of bright and intelligent
faced girls and boys wended
their way to the place of Know-
ledge, and many citizens attend-
ed the opening. Our school is
one of the best in the county and
the faculty is unsurpassable and | 0’f'‘s.acket
each day in school ads so much
to the future life of your girls
and boys that it is a shame for
them to be deprived ol' one day.
“A boy is better unborn than
willing worker and much beloved
by all. She will always be re-
membered among us as a sweet

God with a wonderful interpreta-

fort and cheer and an inspiration
We do not understand God’s
plan in taking her from the dear
ones but “We know that all
things work together for good to
those who love the Lord.”
And we wish to express our
sympathy for him who is thus
left alone and trust that he shall
look to God the Father in Heaven
for the only real comfort ancT
sympathy in such an experience.

shall renew their strength, they
shall mount" up with wings as
eagles; they shall run and not be
weary; they shall walk and not
faint.” Isiah 40; 33. 31.
Be it resolvedlthat a copy of
these resolutions be spread on
the minutes of the society and
published in the two local papers
and a copy sent to Mr. Evans.
Should Be Avoided
The sidewalk leading up from
Mrs. Lou Davison’s should not
be used as a hitzhing place. In
order for pedestrians to pass
this point they are compelled to
get out in the middle of the
street or become in such close
contact with horses hoofs that
it is very dangerous, especially
for the school children. This
should be avoided if possible.

cious chicken sandwiches, lemon-

Cracker Cake,” which was a de-
light to all.
