CLEAN UP DAYS
A GREAT SUCCESS

THANKS TO THE WORK OF
■J'he clean up days, Wednesday and
Thursday, under the auspices of the
Woman's Council civics committee,
accomplished great good for the city
st large. An Immense amount of rub-
bish of all kinds was collected ih
piles, the only difficulty being to get
wagons to haul it away. Dozens of
loads were, however, removed during
the two days.
The greatest good resulting from
regular clean up days, is the work
done by residents in getting ready
for the event. Scores of citizens, as
soon as the clean up daye were an-
nounced, got busy in the yards and

I HIS MAN HAD TO BE TOLD
WHAT HE HAD BEEN DOING
- ALL NIGHT BEFORE.
Judge Lorkrldge, In speaking of
tho unusual cases that have come
under his observation since ho has
been police Judge, tells of the strange
<ase of an Oklahoma City man who
went to sleep" in his home town one
night and awoke the next morning to
be Informed that he was in Jail In
Shawnee. His inquiries as to what he
had done the night before brought but
a partial explanation from tho po-
lice. He had been found drunk In a
South Broadway resort,—more than
that the police could not tell.

able laboring man. According to his
story he had been off the afternoon
before, and admitted that he drank a

morning was a blank. He wondered
mightily when he opened his eyes.
"Where am I?' he asked a fellow pris-
oner. 'You're In Jail," was the reply.
"Yes. but where," ne Insisted. "Why,
in Shawnee, of course," was the re-
ply. Well, I'll be 1" ejaculated

liked the elty so well that he Is now
contemplating moving here with his
