Vith Ihis issue of the paper the old
familiar name "Climax," will cease, arid
text week the paper will appear under
its new caption. "The Cliuiax-Madison-ian,"
this change being made necessary
by the consolidation of The Climax and
The Madisonian. the oldest and the
youngest, and two of the leading papers
of this city. The Climax was launched
upon the journalistic sea 41 years ago
by Judge Frenbh Tipton and Dr. W. G
While. During this time The Climax
has had a large and varied experience,
at limes almost submerged beneath the
billows; at other times, sailing placidly
and gracefully upon the deep blue sea.
But whether in sunshine or sbadow.Tue
Climax has had but one object in view !
the upbuilding of Richmond, the uplift
ing of Madison county, and the better
ment of all mankind.
A'bout eighteen months ago the Madison
ian, which joins hands with The Climax,
was launched by Hon. Grant E. Lilly,
one of the leading attorneys of the Mad
ison County Bar, who had journalistic
aspirations. Owing to some changes
taking place in The Climax a few weeks
since, Mr. Lilly had a chance to pur
chase an interest in the oldest paper in
the city, grasped the opportunity and
now becomes a joint partner with Dr.
White. Hence, the consolidation of the
two papers Climax and Madisonian.
B. D. Gordon, who, in connection with
Dr. While, has been publishing The
Climax, has sold his lease to Judge Lilly
and the paper will hereafter be under
the management of White & Lilly. Mr.
Lilly will have editorial charge and Dr.
White will, as at present, look after the
business end. Ail the Climax force will
be retained and the Madisonian plant
will be moved to the Climax office on
First street this week. The new man
agement will welcome their old patrons
and friends at any time, and cordially
extend an invitation to the general pub
lic to call on them when needing any
thing in the way of printing. The old
management thanks each and all for past
favors, which will ever be kindly re
membered, and solicits your support for

One of the most popular and efficient
officials who ever held public office in
Oklahoma is T. M. Bro&ddus, the pres
ent Register of Deeds of Osage county.
He has served three terms in this office
and was elected each time by a large
majority, and so well has be performed
the duties of bis office that every day of
his incumbency has added to the devo

The office to which Mr. Broaddus as

demonstrated that he has the best in
terests of the people at heart.
In his present capacity he has had a
tremendous amount of particular work
on account of the deeding of the surplus
Osage lands. All this extra work was
handled by Mr. Broaddus and assistants
with accuracy and dispatch. Wherever
he has appeared before the people as a
candidate for public office, as has been
the case se veral times, be has invaria
bly been successful and the secret of
his personal strength is to be found in
the fact of his ever ready effort to please
