The floor managers are: Ber Foster, Tom Suddeth and Frank Seivally. 27-8t. Rev. Shaw ban, pastor of the Pres byterian church returned this raorn . iug. He came not alone, but accom panied by a beautiful and accom plished wife which he betook nnto himself Monday last at the home ol the bride in Corinth Miss. She was Miss May Park, the daughter of one of the prominent families of that state and will be a marked addition to Ardmore's social circle. Mr Shaw ban has reconsidered his intention of moving to Washington and will ac cept the call to the Presbyterian church in this city, much to the de igbt of his many friends here. Quite a number of friends met the couple at the depot this morning extending to tbem a hearty welcome and warm congratulations. The Central Hotel will give an elaborate Thanksgiving dinner Thurs day, and Mr. Ladd, the proprietor invites all his friends to partake of his hospitality. Turkey with cran berry sauce and all the delicacies to be obtained will be served. Mr. Ladd as a host is without a superior and but few equal him in the territory, and his Thursday dinner will be fully up to the standard of his rsputstion. Don't fail to return thanks at the Central In true American style. 28 St. In Saturday's St Louis papers and the Fort Worth Gazette a dispatch dated Paris, Texas, was published an nouncing the death of Will Durant at Durant station at the hands of Tan dy Folsom. Durant and Folsom were in Denison the day of the reported killing, and Will Durant was in the city yesterday. The Paris corres pondent evidently ran short of dis patches this month and "sacrificed" the life of a man to make a dollar. Denison Herald. If yon want good jewelry or silver ware, go to T. H.

It is working with might and main for the interest of Ardmore. Its efforts 'in the line of duty .costs money and its cnly source of revenue must come from the patronage given it by you. Do you think you are doing your duty in that respect? There are 200 business firms in Ard more and of that number are you represented in our columns. The Ardmoreite reaches nearly every homo in the city and has a fair out side circulation but that does not begin to bear its expenses and pay the laborer's hire. While we do not desire to appear in tne role of seeking something for nothing we do desire to impress upon your minds that as an Ardmore Institution laboring in Ardmore's behalf we are entitled to more recog nition than so far has been given. These remarks are made upon the firm conviction that advertising paj s both ways that is it supports your paper and brings yon trade in return. A town is judged by its local papers. Can you afford, as a progressive busi ness man, to allow the world to judge Ardmore's importance by the scanty support given your only daily paper which is acknowledged by all te be what it purports a first class Ucal reflex of Ardmore? A young man inclined to wed call ed at the clerks office today to secure license to marry, but as the would be bride had only arrived at the age of fifteen, and as the young gentleman could not produce any written con sent from her parents his hopes for Thanksgiving happiness were, for the time, cruelly blasted. He was advis eu as to tne proper course to pursue and left the office with a very much cast down expression dwelling upon bis countenance. Today about 1 1 o'clock a, m. Arthur Little and Lonnie Morris, two boys aged twelve years, became involved in a personal difficulty in front of the Cream bakery, iu which the former received an ugly gash in the left cheek from a knife in the hands of the latter. Arthur was taken to the Palace drug store where his wound was attended to by Drs. Brown and Gardener. It seems the two little fellows had a misunderstanding at school this morning and attempted to settle it in true western stvle. The nerve of the wounded boy was re markable and when it was suggested that he take an opiate he scorned the idea, telling the surgeons to go ahead and stitch the wound or surrender their lob to some one else. The wound is not at all serious, but had the stroke been a little lower the re sult might have been fatal. The parents of the children should take them in hand and create a family court of enquiry. wantedTwo furolsbed rooms, suit able for light bouae-keeploc by man and wife fllh one child.

A STRAJTGE FUNERAL. i-V- m - t AranDey is dead" was the answer given to the reporter's querry to 1 TTi r J t r.r.. u raves relative to his loss of a certain noted horse. Tranhey was his name and his age Is given at 23 years and 8 months. He was toaIedin Cooper county, Missouri, and at the age of two years shipped from there to Mr. raves at Sherman. Tex., by his mother, with the request that he should never be parted with dur ing life and that he shoud be ac corded a decent burial at death. Mr Graves literally observed the injunc tion and when the faithful old animal succumbed to the inevitable end awaiting man and beast alike, prepa rations were made at ouco for the burial which took place yesterday afternoon. Rev. Claypool of the Christian church officiated, giving in seiemn ana imuressive maimer a l history of Tranbcy from birth to death. A Large number of people prompt ed by the novelty of the occasion and through sympathy for Mr. Graves at tended the funeral. A large grave, well boxed with lumber, had been prepared and the corpse encased in a burial shroud as though he be longed to the human instead of the brute fa.uilv. Mr. Graves says he feels as though ho had losi a member of his family and when he said this the tears could not be hidden. Mrs.Gravos, his mother, no 7 lives in Clay county. Toxas, and has been notified of Tranbey's death. A MONK OP MUSCLE. te Battled With a Dully ana Knocked Him Into a Cooked Hat. When Sir Richard Burton was trans ferred from Fernando Po to the con snlste of Santos and San Paulo, there was a seminary of Capuchins, French men and Italians, which contained some curious specimens of muscular Christianity. For example: "One of the 'monks was a tall, magnificent, and Tory pow erful man, an ex-cavalry officer. Count Somebody, whose name I forget, then Fray G t, Before he arrived there was a bully in town, rather of a free thinking class, so he used to go and swagger up and down before the sem inary and call out: 'Coma oat you miserable pettiooated monks! Come out and have a free fight for Gou or the devlL When Fray G arrived he heard of this, and it so happened he had had an English friend, when be was with his regiment, who had taught him the use of his fists. He found that 'lis brother monks were dreadfully .Ii? tressed at this un seemly challenge, s he said: 'The nest time he comes, don't open the gate, but lot the porter call me. "So the nest time the bully ap peared, it was so arranged that the gate was opened by Fray G (the isual crowd had collected in the road to see the fun), who looked at him laughingly and said, 'Surely brother, we will fight for God or the devil. If you please.' So saying the friar turned up his sleeves and grown, and told his adversary to 'come on,' whieh he did, and he was immediately knocked into a cocked hat 'Come, get up eaid the friar. 'No lyinjr there and whimpering-; the devil won't win that way.' The man stood three rounds, at the end of which he whim pered and halloaed for mercy, and amidst the jeers and bravos of a larg-e qfowd the villajre oock' retired, a mass of Jelly and palp, and was never een within more than half a mile of Um seminary." A ray-Doctor. A.ioctor had been in the habit for a umber of years of giving professional advice Ut a lady in reduced circum stances, whom he regarded as hardly able to offer him any compensation. At length she eased consulting him, and he did not see her for a long time. Finally, happening to meet ber on tho street, he saia to her: Why, Mrs. , what has become ol you? You haven't been near me for a month." "Well, the fact is, doctor," she said in all simplicity, "I didn't seem to gain very much and I thought I'd consult a pay-doctor." Upon one occasion two dles paid an English cabby a shilling for the distance they had ridden with on fottrpenny bit, two threepenny pieces, one penny, and two halfpence.
