The Yukon Commercial Club
held its regular monthly meeting
at the town hall Tuesday night.
Only about seventeen members
were present, but several impor-
tant matters were considered and,
we believe, the interests of the
town were advanced.
The committee appointed to
look after the proposed new bridge
•on the section line west of town
made a favorable report. Coiatnis-
wioner Lee per assured the commit-
tee that the bridge would be built
in the near future. The. commit-
tee was instructed to watch the
matter to a successful termination, j
The depot committee made a
brief report and asked fur further
sulvice and instruction, which was
;giveu. This matter will be pushed
Inasmuch as the public did, not
respond to the call fora mass meet-
ing to consider the advisability of
holding a fall carnival, the club
decided to let the matter go by
Messrs. ITogan ami Weber, as
members of the school board,
■asked the club for advice concern-
ing the crowded condition of the
public schools. The primary room
is crowded the worst, there being
nearly eighty little tots hud-
dled together with only one teacli-
, or to look after them. The district
is unable to build or rent another
room and employ another teacher,
so the board had about decided to
have lialf-day sessions of tlie pri-
mary department, By this ar-
rangement forty of the. pupils
would attend iu the forenoon and
the other forty in tlie after-
noon. This method is already in
vogue in many of tlie larger cities
of the country and it is said that
the children make better progress
with two or three hours schooling
•each day than they formerly made
with six hours. By unanimous
vote tlie club recommended that
the board adopt the half-day sys-
tem in the primary department.
The telephone franchise was the
next topic. Several members said
they had signed an agreement to
take ’phones from the Bell tele-
phone company last spring, but
thinking that the Bell people had
abandoned the idea of putting in
an exchange at this place, they
had recently signed agreements to
take ’phones of the Southwestern
company which is now putting in
its system. A few days ago, how-
ever, tlie Bell company notified
some of its signers that tlie con-
tract must he complied with.
Knowing that the Bell company
could not put in an exchange sys-
tem without a franchise, the club
recommended that the town trus-
tees refuse to grant any more tele-
day night. No meeting was held
Monday night, but Mr. Warren
reported to the Commercial Club
that lie had good promises for more
money than was deemed necessary.
On account of the drought, how-
ever, the club decided not to at-
tempt a carnival at this time.
A Motherly Cat.
Mr. Herndon, who lives on the
Sturman place southeast of town,
has a motherly old pussy cut. Be-
ing well supplied with cats, Mr,
Herndon thought best to dispose
of Puss’ family of kittens, where-
upon she brought a number of
young rabbits to her nest in tlie
barn. She takes gophers and
other food to her foster children
and does not seem to know but
that they are her own kittens.
Postmaster Pitted- lie-appointed.
Monroe C. Litteer was re-
appointed postmaster at this place
last Friday. His salary was raised
to $1300 per year, \Vhich, with the
allowance for room rent ttud fuel,
makes a very snug income. Mr.
Litteer was reqpmmentled to Del-
egate Flynn by County Commit-
teeman Addington and Township
Committeeman J. A. Faris, and
Delegate Flynn advised the post-
office department to make the ap-
Charles Thomas ut* near Yukon
and Miss Lucy Co* of Edit were
married at El Reno on Tuesday,
Sept. d. The wedding was a quiet
one, ns even their intimate friends
did not learn of it until last Thurs-
day. Charley is a progressive
young farmer and was lucky
enough to draw a claim in tlie
land lottery. He filed on n quar-
ter near Hobart, where he and his
bride will commence house-keep-
ing. The Si x joins the many
friends of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas in
wishing them a long and happy
The Sanger-Bass Wedding.
The Oklahoma Southwestern
Telephone Co. came into town
with its line last Saturday. On
Friday the town board of trustees
held a special session and granted
the company a franchise to put in
a local exchange and conduct a
general telephone business. Read
the franchise ordinance on an in-
side page of this paper. It will
be noticed that the highest, annual
rates allowed oy the franchise are
$15 for residence and $25 for busi-
ness house. The exchange will
be in operation within two weeks
unless something unforeseen pre-
vents. It will be a convenience
for many of our merchants and
grain dealers. The Southwestern
line has a good long distance sys-
tem and has exchanges in many
of our neighboring towns and
The marriage of Miss Fauna
Sanger and George E. Bass was
celebrated at the home of the
bride’s brother, Dr. S. S. Sanger,
on Wednesday evening, October
2. The Reverend Mr* Broyles,
pastor of the M. E. Church South
at Oklahoma City, officiated
ceremony was witnessed by about
forty guests, principally tlie near
relatives and intimate friends of
the contracting parties.
The wedding was a very pretty
one. The bride wore a most
beautiful gown of white batiste
elaborately trimmed in lace, In
her black hair was a single white
rosette and she carried a boquet of
bride’s roses. Mrs. Bert Maxwell
played the Mendelsohn wedding olis*int<
inarch. The ceremony used by
Rev. Broyles was simple and im-
pressive. After a season of rejoic-
ing over the happy event the
party repaired to the dining room,
where a dainty lunch awaited them.
Aftiong the out of town guests
were: Mr. and Mrs. F. Carutli-
ers, DiL and Mrs. E. E. Kirk-
patrick and Dr. and Mrs* R. S.
Parsons, all of Oklahoma City;
Mrs. S. S. Shepard of Ft. Smith,
Ark., and Edwin Sanger of Clare-
more, lnd. Ter.
Yukon is especially well pleased
with (his happy marriage. The
bride is a daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. S. S. Sanger and is a fa-
vorite in local society. Besides
rare outward beauty she possesses
those charming qualities of char-
acter which distinguish the true
woman anywhere; and above all
she is endowed with an unusual
amount of common sense. The
groom is a progressive young busi-
ness man, being a member of the
firm of Bass Bros., one of tlie lead-
ing mercantile institutions of the
county. George enjoys the confi-
deuce of all who know him and is
in every respect
prize he has won.
Mr. and Mrs. Bass will live with
Dr. and Mrs. Paul Sanger, where
they will be at home to their
friends after < )etober 10th.
