Can You Stop a Hail Storms
S It Ycu Can't You Need HAIL INSURANCE
Every successful man considers INSURANCE a good
investment, and carries it in every form.
Why should you spend six months producing a crop
and then see it wiped out in less than three minutes?
Come in the bank and let us tell you about our
SECURITY policy. * It is written bv an old line company,
established in 1841, who pay their losses promptly in cash.
Hail storms are no inspectors of persons. Don’t
think because you have been lucky you wili always be so.
A small investment in a SECURITY policy may be worth
$1,000.00 to you before August 1st.

Gray Allison, oneof the promi-
nent young farmers and demo-
crats of Kiowacounty, in a state-
ment to the voters, formally an-
nounces his canl'idacy subject to
the action of the democrat pri-
mary. Tuesday, August 1st.
Fourteen years aga. Mr. Al-
lison came to Oklahoma and Kio-
wa county from the stateol Tex-
as, anil since that time has re-
sided in Hobart towuship.
His official statement convey-
ing his announcement, is self-ex-
planatory and follows:
To the voters of Kiowa County:
I take this means of announc-
ing myself a candidate for the
office of county clerk of- Kiowa
county, subject to action of the
Democratic primary, Aug. I 191G
1 have been a resident of Kiowa
since 1902, having moved here
with my parents in that year.
1 have resided continually on a
farm but mv educational advan-
tages have been such that my
ability to till the office with cred-
it will not be questioned by my
friends who know me best. I
have always been a loyal Demo-
crat. giving liberally of my
means and time when needed for
the furtherance of Democratic
principals. Being a young man
and believing it to not be a crime
to be ambitious I ask your care-
ful consideration of my candidacy
and earnestly solicit your sup-
port. If nominated and elected
l promise a correct administra-
tion of the affairs of the office.
This is the greatest war dra-
ma ever filmed; it deals with the
"preparedness” of defenseless
America, and just been played
in Oklahoma City and other big
cities of the state with tremen-
dous success. You can’t aliord
to miss it.
The putting on of this pictue
involves an enormous expense,
but regardless of cost, we have
hooked it for the benefit of 'hose
of our patrons who cannot visit
the larger cities, and it is our
desire to give them the best.
Coining: To the Elite 'Thea-
tre at Lone Wolf, June 2bth.

thizing friends and relatives
around his 'bedside during his
last illness, which was of only a
few days duration.
The funeral services were held
at the Baptist church on Friday
afternoon conducted by Rev. J.
M. Dosher. and interment at the
Lorfe WW cemetery. A large
crowd was in attendance, among
them children and other relatives
from out of town, a full of whom

ing statement to the Editor ot
”1 have been |in close touch
with your schoo’s during the pre-
sent session and have found them
to be in excellent, condition dur-
ing the entire termr
’’ You have an excellent corps
of teachers who have worked in
perfect harmony for the best in-
terest of the school children.
This is one of the first essen-
tials for a good school. Another
noticeable element was the ener-
gy and precision with which the
teachers were able to handle the
student body the faculty and
students moving and working
m perfect unison. I he training
of the teachers was largely pro-
trayed in the lives ot the pupils
who seemed to be ever ready
prepared and elert when duty
I think especial mention should
be made of the thorough work
done by the 8th grade in Arth-
Lone Wolf should be justly
proud of their splendid school
system, and the Board of Educa-
1 tion should be congratulated tor
' the interest they have take in

[ their earnest solicilation for its
► best interests at all times.

The Brownie Band
There was probably not a par-
ent in Lone Wolf that dident
feel thier hearts swell with pride
as they wittnessed the preform-
ance of the beautiful play The
Brownie Band by their little ones
at the High School Auditorium
last Tuesday night.
The show was given for the
benefit of the general fund for
the commencement work and
was in every way a decided suc-
cess. The house was crowded
and the receipts far beyond the
most sanguine expectation.
The play was admirably adapt-
ed to the plyers, they being the
lower or grammar grades, and
it was easy to see that no pains
had been spared in tthe drilling
of the children in their various
parts. The teachers were highly
commended for their excellent
work in this respect and all that
were present declared it had
been long since so entertaining
a performance was given at Lone
