STORY OF "THE GONQOEft
The Following HyhopMs Gifts bat la
Bare Idea of the Gripping and
Keenan tic Htory Unfolded in
the Great Production.
Because Sam Houston (Willlati
Farhum) had been raised in the
motfntalas, he had little or no edu-
cation. When his father died, San
felt as if he had lost the last friend
he had in the world. He still had the
Indians, among whom he 'had lived
since the earliest dawn of conscious-
The city Was not far from where
Sam lived. He made frequent trips
to it, and that was how he came to
meet Elisa Allen (Jewel Carmen.)
It was a ease of love at first sight.
The rough backwoodsman thought he
had never seen anything quite so
lovely as the dainty little blonde of
the city. He was sure he had never
seen anything quite sq haughty.
When she discovered that he was so
Ignorant that he could neither read
nor write, it meant for her the end
-of their acquaintanceship, Sam
thereupon began his education.
One day soon after Ellia had
learned this awfal truth Sam went to
see her. She could not bear the
thought of receiving such a person,
so she told her negro mammy to toll
Sam that she could not see him be-
cause she was "constrainedly un-
able." The negro mammy did not tell
Sam this. She told him that her mis-
tress had said she could not see him
until he "strained to be constable."
Sam decided to become constaole.
He asked a friend how to attain
this valued position, and the friend
replied, laconically, "Drinks and
votes." There was one way out of
the difficulty: "Drinks and votes."
Whiskey was dear in the Tennessee
of 1826. When Sam bagged a silver
fox and sold its skin for a handful
of silver, he found that hed morny
enough for only a few votes. But hlj
desnalr was short lived. Teddy, his
do>; seemed to sense that his master
needed money, so he quietly Blipped
the fox skin from the shop of the
dealer who had bought it, an 1
brought it bark to Sam.
Sam sold it again.
He bought more whiskey and more
When the skin was returned once
more in the faithful teeth of Teddy,
Sam bought more whiskey and more
voles. So he kept It up, until finally
he had sold that one fox skin often
enough to elect him constable.
Then he went to see Eliza. The
mammy answered the door ngaln.

To the Coal Consumers of
Tahlequah and Cher-
I wish to call your attention to the Seriousness of the coal situation
at this early date. Tou have no doubt been reading articles that havo
appeared in the dally papers treat tlaw to time, , advising you to buy and
stow roar year's supply of eoal early—NOW; anil warning you that un-
less yon do this, the aapply will he short next Winter.
Yo« will remember that I warned yon early laat year that unless
you bought aad stored yonr eoal early that we would haTe a coal short-
age, In Tahlequah, in mid winter. Few of yon were heedful of this warn-
ing and It Is still fresh in'your tnlafls how you begged for coal aaai re-
ceived none during last January and February. Unless you are mindful
now, you are inviting the same conditions for next winter.
Ton must understand that the dealer cannot store ooal la sufficient
quantities to take care of the community's entire winter supply, but yen
mnst help; it Is your duty to help Tour way to help la to a tore aa.
mueh of your year's supply ae possible. Thla will enable the dealer to
atore more coal for the winter needs.
It ia to your financial interest to buy your coal in April, as the price
will be advanced on the first of eaeh moqth up to and Including August.
Prom Auguat to March 31at, there vlll likely be no change in pricea.
However, if you delay buying for thirty, sixty or ninety daya, you
reduce your chances of getting what you want Just that much—later In
the season you may expect to take what you can get.
I am now filling our blna and expect to have them full by May 1st.
During this time I will be glad to take care of your ordera for storage
coal, at reduced prices.
One other thing I wish to call your attention to la this: The retsil-
ers are under the control of the United States Government, and the mar-
gin of profits allowed Is so small, that we are compelled to place our coal
business on a strictly cash basis. Beginning April 22nd, 1 18, you will
please be prepared to pay for your coal on delivery.
Yours very truly,
OKLAHOMA LUMBER COMPANY
