Humphrey or Ardmoro was olected chairman and F. M. Ilulloy ot Chlcknsha wur elected secretary. John A. .McCluro ot ChlcUnsha stat ed the object of the meotlng, nnd sabl that It had Its origin in his tow-), lie stated, too, that while be would be glad to have a groat deal, his people were willing to put up with whatevor they could get. Ho was not In favor of ashing for that which we would not get, but would ask for something that congross would possibly glvo. A list of those proHont was taken, whlnh showed the following In attend unco: Adn W. II. I.. Campbell. Coalgate (loovgo 13. Jnhu, I). 1). Bruuson. Durant It. I. Williams, Charles C.

After considerable argument by tho Jlffuront metnbors as to what the host method would be Mr. .McClure moved that a committee composed of one member from each recording dls trlct confer and roport to the meet lug as to the best mode of procoduro Tho following gentlemen composed the committee: R.

Chichnshn; 13. 13. Morris. Ryan. This committeo roported tliat it was tho sense of tho committee that wo cither have another Judicial district with all tho olllcors necessary, or ask for another Judge to assist tho one wo now have, and that each recording dis trict bo entitled to ono vote. Tho report was adopted. The.i came more discussion. Mr. McCluro Insisted on asking ouly for what he thought could bo hud; It wan useless to ask for .something that would tako years to got; ho wanted some kind of relief now. Mr. Campbell of Ada snld wo had members from tho Central district; that they woro willing to loso part of their district If necessary. Albert Rennlo spoke ot Judge Clny ton; said ho thought ho was willing to lose Atoka and Durant from his district; that ho hated to do It but bo know that ho had more than he could do. R. I,. Williams, of Durant said that ho was not willing to loso a part ot the Central distract uuloss a new ills trlct was formed. 13. A, Wnlker of Ardmoro thought we should have another district. Mr. Campbell thought tho samo way. Mr. Honshaw of Madlll thought If wo would ask fnlrly and squarely for what wo needed wo would get U. W. A. I.odhetter thought tho quick est way would bo to ask for n now district Judgo West of Ardmoro was opposed to tho whole buslndss; thought wo might - havo probata Jtidges, and thought wo should have territorial form of government. II. C. Pottert tht.ught our Judge should be closer to tin. and favoted separate districts. D. Hrunson of Coalgate said that Uo was not willing for Atoka to rutnu In the Southern district if Ardmoro con tinued to be headquarters. He said that tho census had Just been com pleted at Coalgate, showing her popu lation to be 5,000 and within a ra dius of twelve miles ot the town there were 12,000 people. He thought they were entitled to a court. Others attorneys spoke on tho ques tion, some fnvorlng a now district, some the extra JuJe and llnally tho vote wan cast as whether tho bar should ask for a cpurute district or for an oxtra Judge, one vote bolnf; accorded each recording district. The vote resulted In Pauls Valley and Ada voting for dividing tho dis trict, nnd as Tishomingo anil Madlll form one recording district their vote was split, .Madlll voting for division, Tishomingo voting for nn extra Judge. All tho other recording districts voted for tho extra Judge. R. I Williams of Durant then moved that a committee of throe In appointed to draft a bill providing for probate Judges, who shall have a limit ed Jurisdiction both in criminal nnd civil matters. The motion was sec onded and carried. Chairman Humphrey appointed R. 1,. Williams of Durant nnd A. F.ddlo man of Ardmoro.

Educated Seals. With Norrls & Rowo's big shows which are to appear hero soon, Is a remarkable animal act, which is so entirely out of tho ordinary that tho press throughout tho country have boon 'more than lavish In Its praise. Tho gieat act, which Is tho cause of so much comment, Is the congress ot educated seals and eea Hons which thoy aro representing this reason. It Is almost beyond the power of reason to believe that seals nnd sea Hons, which havo never been accredited with nny moro sense than to bo able to lazily pull themselves upon a rock, or to dine upon a llsh dinner, can be made to perform maneuvers and ex ceedingly intricate tricks at the bock and call or a human being. They have been taught to skip ropes and to bal ance and Juggle all sorts and sizes of ai tides, such as lighted torches, hoops and balls, and thoy even play upon musical Instruments. They havo also u clown among them wh' enters into tho humors of his actions with as much zeet ns a human being. This Is positively one of tho most novel acts given by any tentod oxhlbltlon.

MORNING, SEPTEMBER WOMEN'S FEDEflflTIOH WORK ORGANIZED WOMANHOOD CAN NOT BE STAYED. It's Cumulative Project Which As Yet Scarcely Knows Its Own Destiny Its Work In Ardmore. Energies Keep It Aloft. Organized womanhood advances with the measured consistent move ment of the Min-dlal, whole tinner cnnnoi be stayed. It Is a oumulutlvo force which us yet scarcely knows Its own destiny. S- This is Indeed an age of unrest nnd progression. Now, more than nny other time in tho world's history. It Is necessary to keep on the crest of tho wnve; to see the shadow that coming ovents cast before; to rise to the emergency of meeting them. Not alone on the horlson ot man's work hns arisen this restless energy so well directed by master minds, but In the Held, hnrrowod by conflicting theories in regard to women's work, a new seed hns been dropped the need of modern progress. Tho sprout ing wns slow, tho growing was tedi ous. Many n frost came to nip Its buds, many u marauder to trample It beneath destructive foot; but it grew and llnally nourished. Wo men's clubs Is a child of this mod ern progress; a power for good; an appllod Christianity brought out from tho choatic mass by the univer sal secret power, the unconquerable force that goes ahead and conquers obstacles and hotttllc sentiments nnd conditions. Regardless of how toll ing In Us effect may bo Individual effort, In union thore la strongth; In companionship there Is expansion of Ideas; in association and touch with humanity there Is a breadth of char Ity that reaches a holplng hnnd to up lift Mio care-worn nnd needy. The ce menting of this Individual and collect ive work Into ono grand federation that stands as a parent to each club within Its federation Is a com- l blnlng of nil forces to a purer, high er living; tho crentlng ot betlor homes, better, more cultured moth ers, nnd the nccompllshmont of ob jects by which the plane of a hlghor civilization may be attained. Ah soon us the nainoa of tho dole- I au is have been received each iwi j tess should maintain the name of Ard- moru's homes for gentle courtesy and hospitality by sending a pol.n note n( Invitation to her guests. Agulu, we urge that those who entertain .make all possible preparation tl we?U be fore. Your guestk will uudiustiio I this. They neither want nor expect you to miss one meeting, of the Fed eration. The loschurs of Ardmore are cor dlally Invited to attond nil the meet ings of the Federation. And now for n cleaner Ardmore. Let tho chairman of tho Civic Im provement i,cnguu marshal his forces, armed with tho rake, tho broom, tho shovul and tho paint bnish and rout tho enemy unwholesome trash, dirt v ' rubbish. Cleanliness Is not only nkln to godliness but a part of It. Women's Health Protective Asso ciations in many of the lnrge oltlos havo had no difficulty In getting a city urdluanco passed against expect orating on the sidewalks, In public buildings, etc. Tho reasons ate obvi ous. Scientists toll us that tho germs of dread diseases are lifted and car ried by tho winds into the atmosphere to be Inhaled by the helpless and un suspecting victim. The question Is this: Will Ardmoro keep up. with the procession? "Women may ho afraid or mlco," wrltea tho Inlmltablo Pauline Perl wlnklo, but when duty calls hor to tncklo Jobs, beforo which man'u cour age oozes and his back-bone wilts, sho knows no such word as "Boo!"
