MARAMEC, OKLAHOMA, PAWNEE COUNTY, APRIL
On Saturday P. M. March 29th,
*9*3 hoipital at Stillwater
where she had gone lor treatment,
Mrs. Daisy Parker heard the voice
of her Master saying “Well done
thou good and faithful servant, enter
thou into the joy of the Loid." Miss
Daisy Hurley was born Feb. aad,
1879, at Flemming Co. Ky. and
was married to Mr. Patker July 20,
• 897, She accepted Christ as her
personal Savior when quite young,
and has lived a constant consistant
ohriatain life until called to her re-
ward. Her pure loving uplifting in-
Huence has been felt in our midst,
lid it was thro her effoits that the
}curg people of the Baptist church
< rganized the Purity class of which
*he was, the beloved piesident until
lies last illness compelled her to re-
She also assisted in organizing
the Golden Rule class of the U. II.
church showing her Christ like spirit
and her unbounding love tor all the
young people m the community.
We the members of these classes
legarded Mrs. Parker as a leader
worthy of our highest esteem and
most ardent affection. She earnestly
endeavored to influence all the
young people to live chris'i.m lives,
lives of prayer and humble sincere
■setvice in the cause of Christ. Hei
life as we knew it, was an incentive
to all kinds of altmistic service, and
we feel that her departure has de-
P'ived us of a true friend and able
counsellor and we li t up a prayer
to Him who is th« fountain of all
wisdom and strength, that we may
be able day by day to tbe end of our
lives to walk in the way in which
-.lie desiied US to wa.i,' and to do
those things which she desiied us to
do. While we mourn the loss which
we have sustained, we rejoice that
our sister expressed her willingness
to depart and be with her Savior in
that bright country where the inhab-
itants shall not say “1 am sick,"and
we derire to hold in loving remem
brance the request embodied In the
following little poem which was one
of h.-r favorites, and was found in
her Bible after her decease.
Mm I Am tat
“When I am gone shed not a tear
While standing lonely at my bier.
Just think that I have gone away,
Soon to return, another day.
VV hen I am gone sit not and weep,
But in your memory fresh you keep
My image, il I were true to you,
If false, forget, that’s what I’d do.
When from life I’v* passed away,
And in the grave this earthly clay
Lies cold and silent; do not fear,
My spirit shall he ever near.
Shed not a tear when I am gone,
And sorrowing friends around you
But raise j our voice in sweetest song.
I his is my wish when 1 am gone.
—PURITY and GOLDEN RULE

One Lon^ Step Forward
We have always kept up with the times, and
now our many friends ana customers will be glad
to know we have made this long stride--
A few of our customers have been in the habit
of sending to some catalogue house /or articles of
hardware or furniture. We believe they did this
because they thought they were saving money,
and not because they would prefer trading with
some stranger lather than with us. Now we have
been fortunate in making arrangements with a
number of factories to handle their wares and sell
them ‘‘Direct from Factory to Consumer," there-
fore we have had put list ed a number of cata’ogues
for distribution. You select your goods and bring
us the order accompanied by the cash we order
the goods sent direct to you. This gives us the
benefit of the little commission instead of giving
it to some big concern in a distant city.
It also prevents you from paying more than
you should, for if we can furnish you the goods
cheaper here in cur stcre, we tell you so before
sending your order.
It also pevents the annoyance and aggravation
of having your goods guaranteed by some one a
long ways from 3 ou which often causes you to
keep goods that are not at all satisfactory because
it is so much trouble to have the matt r adjusted,
as we guarantee every article in our catalogue to
be as represented. If you do not find them so,
just refuse to accept them and come to us and
get your money back, you don’t have to wait ten
days for it. We do business on business principles.
Give us a trial.
Then again—those who pay cash feel that
they should have a little the best of the deal
so we have made arrangements to take care
of them. We are preparinga profit-sharing
plan whereby each cash customer gets a
share of the profits. We give a 50c coupon
with every 50c cash purchase. These cou-
pons are redeemable in dishes as follows:
A set of cups and saucers or a set of plates
in white for 40 coupons, or a set of either
in decorated ware for 59. A six in. nappie
for 15, S3ven in. nappie for 20, eight in. nap-
pie for 25.
Come on now and let us work to each oth-
er’s interest and make this store the best of
its kind in this part of Oklahoma.
The store that treats you right.
“Time Tried and Fire Tested.”
(No Coupons given with Catalogue orders)
