DEWEY, WASHINGTON COUNTY, OKLAHOMA, FRIDAY, MAY 3, 1912.
The City Council ot Dewey have
had estimates made upon the cost
of installing a complete sewer sys-
tem for the City. These estimates
are based upon an assumed popu-
lation of 80oo within the present
City limits, thereby providing for
the building up of all vacant prop-
erty in the course of time with the
sewer system installed to take care
of this population.
The drawings and detailed es-
timates in the possession of the
Council show the trunk lines and
mains, with provision for laterals,
to reach every lot within the City
limits. The .estimates, which have
been made to cover these trunk
lines and septic tank, amount to
|28,ooo.oo the complete installation
of all laterals will cost in addition
to this the sum of $15,o0o.oo mak-
ing a total of 848,000.00 for the
complete installation of the Dew-
ey Sewer System.
The out-let, or location for the
septic tank, has been selected on
Coon Creek east of the Interurban
tracks at a point opposite Clark,s
stone crusher, a distance of 4900
feet from the city limits.
The plans of this sewer work
have- been made to place the sew-
ers at such a depth as will give
drainage for basements throughout
the business parts of the city and
largely throughout all parts.
TO HAVE CHURCH
' The Presbyterians are planning
•n a fine new brick church 6n the
corner of Seventh ard Osage Sts.
The lot was donated today by Mr,
Joe A. Bartles. The building, it
is said will be a $5o,ooo.oo struc-
Last Tuesday night the council
met in regular session for the last
time for these members. |Minutes
were read and approved, all being
present but Mr. Schertzer. The
special committee on sewers made
a report on the result of their work
on plans and specifications made
by Mr. Chapelow. It was decided
that there be several copies of the
proposition made and one given
each member for their convenience
that they may be free to express
themselves regarding this matter
and to put the question before the
people in a business-like manner.
Mr. Rose and Mr. McQuarywere
aprointed on a committee to audit
the books of the city officers.'
A few bills were allowed in con-
nection with the watarworks and
dumping grounds also a bill for the
services of J. W. Noland and one
for the city election were allowed.
The payment for the ground on
which the water tower and jail are
located was recommended but there
being insufficient funds to meet the
obligation it was necessary to hold
up the payment until a future date
The clerk reported that no word
had been received regarding the
There being no further business
the meeting adjourned.

It certainly speaks well for the

The preaching services on Sun-

The public both old and young

“Good name in man or woman is
the immediate jewel of this soul”
It takes a mean man to uttact a
woman, a meaner man to attack a
good woman in an opeu way hut
for the man who will attack the
repmtatiou or character of a good
woman in an mderhanded way.
There are no terms in the English
language a (equate to express the
feeling of contempt and utter loath-
somness that all respectable paopie
feel lor such a man.
On account of rain our attend-
ance laatSunday was not. aa large
as we hoped fof. However we had
two good services. In our work
for the Lord we will not always have
fait weather and smeath sailing,

Our Sunday school is doing good
work. The teachers and pupils

have already reached the Holy
Land, and last Sunday they began
their return voyage. Now for
long, hard home run, the loosing
crew will have to give an entertain-
ment for the Sunday school picnic
which is coming bye and bye, The
B. Y. P. E. U. is pushing forward
which means growth in members
and in Christian piety and work.
The ladies aid can work so
smoothly and nicely that they have
called forth the admiration of the
band of Christian women are work-
ers together with Christ and his
favor rests upon them. The Lad-
ies Missionary society has an out-
ward look and they see the harvest
filled with its ripening grain and
they are working to send means to
help the reapers gather in the gold-
en grain into the garner of god.
At our prayer meetings the Lord
comes down our souls to greet, and
glorjr crowns the mercy seat. Do
you need to have your spiritual
strength renewed? Do you need
to get closer to Jesus? Do you
want to be better prepared for the
ills of life? Then come to the
prayermeetings for “they that wait
for Jehovah shall renew their
strength; they shall mouAt up with
wings as eagles; they shall run and
not be weary; they shall walk and
not faint.” The pastor will be
glad to meet all the members next
At this date there are no definite
plans Regarding the rebuilding of the
school house, but the board is doing
all in its power to work out a plan by
which this district will have as nice a
school building as before the fire, yet
at the-same time, give better results.
The plan now under discussion by
the members of the board are as fol-
First: To ms k 2 the building as near
fire-proof as lies in man’s power, one
feature being a flat roof.
Second: The space which was for-
merly a balcony will be given to a
far better purpose, a study room.
The space occupied by the auditorium
will be divided into two rooms, reliev-
ing the unhealthy basement situation
and a floor put in, leaving, no balconv
and placing the auditorium on the
second floor, furnished with desks in-
stead of opera chairs so it may be used
as a study room as well as for enter-
tainments. The stairway will be
changed from the ends of the hall to
the center, directly in front of the
main entrance to avoid confusion in
leaving the building. ‘This will also
give space at each end of the hall for
two small recitation rooms.
The two basement rooms will be
used for manual training.
A Seeress in Paris the first of

ecies and said the year 1912 would
be pregnant with dire disasters
throughout the entire world and
especially the United States.
One catastrophe after another
has followed the predictions.
Several nations are at war and
a war with our nation and Mexico
The great strikes in England
and the United States are unpar-
ailed. Hundreds of lives have
been lost a^d millions of dollars
in property have been swept away
by recent floods on (he great rivers.
There has been several disasters
on the high seas among which was
the ship Titanic that collided with
an iceberg and i700 men, women
and children drowned^in mid ocean.
Sinoe that scores of persons were
killed and hundreds injured in cy-
clones swept through various states

conclusion, but it will be on the
