Miss Davis goes to To'peka Thurs day evening as the representative of the faculty at a Council. The Seniors, Juniors and Faculty had a "peppy" meeting Wednesday while the Sophomores and Freshmen were getting their programs ar raged. The Faculty showed their ability to invent clever yells and give tbem with vigor. J. P. Wooten is confined to his home with appendicitis. ! Edward Browning is absent from bis classes because of illness. Effle White was absent Wednes day because of sickness. The high school orchestra has been asked to play for the Southwestern Boosters, when they come to Liber al in the near future. This will be good advertisement for the orches tra and the school, so we wish them the best of success. The Glee Clubs are going to put on an operetta in the near future, under -whe direction of Miss Edson. Prac T tice will begin at once. It might be of interest to note that during the next semester the chapel hour will be between the sec ond and third hours as it has been previous to this year. Last Friday morning the high school exhibited the best "pep" they have this year. Everybody was doing their bit, and that's what it takes to win. Now if we will just have that kind of support and pep at the games! not a game will be lost, and all who take part will have a share In the victory. It is indeed of rare interest to note that the very presence of some peo ple will work wonders. They need not say a word or make a sign, but as soon as they appear things will change and be different. Wednes day morning a small group of boys were in the upper hall playing leap frog, when suddenly the appearance of Miss Henry caused the boys to stop the game and march quietly to the study hall. Miss Davis, Mr. Steele and Miss Henry have taken charge of Miss j CrowollV pl(p durincr her absence. Cot; "1 don't want to be read (red)." Miss Davis: "You would just as leave be blue." Come out Saturday night and see the girls "beat up" on the faculty. It is the only way the girls have of getting even. Miss Lance wonders if March will be much worse than the past two days Tuesday and Wednesday. We tell her she better take the hint. This is heaven to what March is. Ruth Stark was a visitor at school Wednesday afternoon. Mildre'd Cure was absent 'from school last Thursday. James Taylor is here again, and now we can look forward to a glori uos track season. Velma and Agatha Printz are out of school because of scarlet fever in their home. We play Bucklin Saturday night at the armory. Bucklin beat Pratt by practically the same score that we did, so this promises to be a close game. Come out and back the boys. Can You Imagine? Miss Lance five feet tall? Leo Akers short and fat? Mr. Meyer cranky? t. Edgar Bush not saying "dadgum?" The faculty yelling? Evelyn not fixing her hair? Walley Heaton sitting on the front seat? The second and third hour Phy sics classes quiet? Kenneth Hill present at English class? Alva working at his own table in Physics? Velma Bond getting to Bchooi on time? Leo Miller with black hair? Favorite Sayings Miss Scandrett: "We must cen sor it first." Miss Ross: Ross: "Let's have it quiet, please." Chester Boles: "It's a lie." Edgar Bush: "That is just like a woman." Mr. Meyer: "This is the best thing a-going." Mable Cain: "Go get a brick." Miss Henry: "Are there any an nouncements?" Mr Wood: "Cut out the talking over there." Mrs. Webber of Hayne. was a shop per in Liberal Friday. DAILY SERVICE COAL OIL ' WMIIIIM STAliOW Ot-tfccD KERZ.y The daily service oil station is now doing business in rapid fire style. This station should be a great con venience to the eitizens of Liberal j in view of the fact that the station is g equipped with a large underground I j storage tank and pump. These are j located in the rear of the Blue Bell ! 1 Tire Shop on Third street and will prove a great convenience to the farmers who want their coal oil cans filled when they come to town. The daily service oil station has two trucks which make the town daily and deliver any amount of oil desired. This is another step in citifying Liberal. We can now have coal oil deliver ed to our homes without any risk of it being spilled on our groceries. S. A. Vanaman is the proprietor of the station and trucks and if he puts his wrestling punch into this business the people of Liberal should receive sudden service. ifTTtii tmtiiTTirniiuiiiTiT! f iirrnrm m LORENA Still having fine weather.

Brown this week. Several ladies met with Mrs. Rob ert Vogts Saturday afternoon, and spent a social hour. Eldorado Times: Here's a new one: The day before Christmas a kindly Eldorado woman observed a poorly clad, despondent appearring couple walking along th street with three tousled youngsters. "What a shame," she thought, "and just the dny before Christmas." Impulsive ly she slipped her hand into hr bag and drew ont a $20 bill. While she was reflecting on an inoffensive way' to present it, the family left the walk stepped into a big car and drove away. R. M. Stafford and C. G.

Our New Price List Shows Reductions from 10 to 25 per cent in Cost of Meals Annex Cafe C. E. WAIDE, Prop. DEPUTY STATE FIRE MARSHAL HERE TUESDAY PIIIIIIIIIIIIUIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIUIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIW I ri m I i Contentment In Old Age Some time in December A. 0. Ed monds of the Edmonds ranch, north of Liberal, lost several ricks of feed by fire. G. L. Light, at that time county attorney, was called to the scene of the fire and was so firmly convinced that the fire was the re sult of fire-bugs, that he notified the state fire marshal. Tuesday, E. E. Fitzpatrick, deputy state fire marshal, came to Liberal and conducted an arson case inqui sition. The result of his investiga tion has not been mnde known, and it cannot be determined as yet what action will be taken in the matter. The Democrat is informed that the investigation may lead to a prosecu tion, but this is not known definitely. TRYING BAD CHECK CASE AGAIN TODAY A. W. Piury stood trial yesterday on a misdemeanor charge as a result of having given a check to C. K. Waide of the Annex Cafe, on which payment was refused. Drury made the defense that a deposit entrusted to his wife had not reached the bank as he expected, and the jury ac quitted him. He is before the court again today, on a felony charge, over a check for $40 given the Peoples State Bank. A peculiarity of the case is that County Attorney E. W. Davis is de fending, and Attorney G. L. Light is prosecuting, they having changed places ns a result of Drury having conferred with Davis previous to his taking office.
