a banquet given at the class room of
the r-arucas last Tuesday night. The
primary reason for the entertainment
was to inaugurate plans for augment

various classes next Sunday. The
Sunday school of the Broadway Bap

at present but Supt. Richards wants
the number increased to 730 next Sun
day and for that reason a campaign
has been made this meek with flat

Tuesday night a very delightful hour
was spent by the classes listening to
short taks from various members
of hte classes and to selections ren

Misses Littler, 'West, Lynn

quartette, this musical organization

officials of the
conjunction with the
Rock Island railroad,
the Oklahoma Development Commis
sion will start a train over the lineB
of that company on Monday, next,
from S to ! o'clock, November 23.
This train will be a demonstration
train run for the purpose of arousing
interest of the tanners of this state
in the great results to be produced
by thi! raising of kaffir corn.
This "Kaffir Special," as it will be
known, is scheduled to start on its

This being the case it seems but pro

It Is axiomatic that co-operation
is the keynote to success in every

locally applied, that Oklahoma has

Hoodlum Wagon Tried Out.
The peace and quitt which has
reigned supreme in police circles for;
the past several days has prevented
the officers at the central station
from giving the hoodlum wagon a
trial. Officers say that the lack ot
excitement had begun to get on Mac
Pettitt's neves. Now Ma has j

to answer trouble calls and bring the;

has been doing since the wagon has
been instaleld and Mac has grieved
over the natural course with which
events have been shaping themselves.
In fact, it is alleged by other attaches
at the station, he has expressed the
fear that the wagon would never be
used. Last night In order to re:eve
the hum-drum of existence at the
station of night, one of th" boys i0oiit

and give the wagon its maiden trip.
The telephone buzzed and the hurry

Monday. A meeting of this club is
called for tonight at which time all
initial steps will be taken.
Jt has been suggested that the- mer
chants eif this city get together and
make the 25th of November a "spec-
1 ial sale elay,' thus co?ope'rating with
the 'kaffir special." It has also been
, suggested that, during the hour the
train iwill be in the- railroad yards in
this city, while the lectures em kaffir
cultivation and kaffir raising are titl
ing given by the kaffir experts, that
all places of business be closed so
that all who may be interested in

start on its Journey through the state

and Carter county will do more than

a farm ne'ar Berwyn, has take-n a

Advice to Alpine Climbers.
In the earlier part of the nineteenth
century many even of those who had
been up Alpine peaks themselves de
nounced the sport. Regarding the as
cent of Mount Blanc, Murray's Hand
book in the year 1838 stated that "all
who have succeeded have advised no
one to attempt it," and nearly 0
years later noted the "remarkable
fact that a large proportion of those
who have made this ascent have been
persons of unsound mind."
"Really," began the collector, I can
not understand why a man of your
resources will refuse to pay his hon
est debts." "Then I'll tell you," said
the well-to-do citizen, confidentially,
"if I paid up I'd throw you and sev
eral others out of work, and I haven't
the heart to do it." Satire.
