DAILY ARDMOREITE' SUNDAY, JUNE 13, 1920. Interesting Sidelights of State Reunion And Scott Ferris Day In Carte County By MKS. M.U'DK K. TANNF.lt Editor of the Wwlily Arilmoreile Ardtnure, the K;irUi'n nt of Okla homa, proclaimed u.s the center t gushing ell wells where men have sons to bed as -paupers and risen to find themselves millionaires, lias yet another claim to fame. The old Confederate veterans who carried the keys to the city three days of the past week proclaim as in one voice, that Ardtnure did her part and did It well. The veter.itiN say: "Hand It to the Scout Boys, they've learned the prin ciples for which their order stands and practice what they teach." L. N. Neaves of I'oolvlllo, this county, wielded their bows to the tunes of "Hillie In the Low Grounds," "Utile Mollle (loodin" and many other melo dies of by-gone days. The judges were "stumped" when It camo to mak ing a decision and possibly on the grounds of Mr. Gllllland's former reputation as a fiddler and partly to pay homage to guests outside the county the larger prize, a sum of money amounting to $17.50, went to Air. Gllliland nnd $S lo Mr. Neaves. For the life of us we couldn't see where one had the advantage of the other, llotll had the effect of making you want to keep your feet In per petual motion, Queens and kings may have passed into oblivion, but, according to the veterans who spent a portion of the past week in Ardiiiore. Mrs. T. V. .Morgan Is a queen among women when it comes to feeding the old soldiers. "She knows just what we old men Jike." remarked a number or the fine old veterans. McAlestcr's delegation came In .1 chartered car to the Confederate re union. There were about 49 delegates. McAlester has the strongest camp In Oklahoma. "Did anyone lose a roll of bills?" piped a small voice. Every one got interested nnd busy feeling In ' this pockel and that pocket, but no one spoke a word. "Uecause if you illi? here they are," said the small boy. and he began passing out bills adver tising a pre-war shop sale. R. !. Halsell, a mighty "spry" ol i fellow from Durant whose face tell!, tho story of many and varied battles of ' life fought, says, "Madam, there might lie a hundred reunions, but we'll never have another to surpass this one. Why, everybody has treated us royally, the scout boys and all." You Had Another Sleepless Night rK.PSlNOI. Will Correct Causes That Keep Yon Await You rolled and tossed restlessly all night and got up feeling worse than when you went to bed. Your tongue was coated. There was a bitter taste In your mouth.

When at home In Altus. Mr. tillll- land plays the part of Justice of the Pence and says he has - walked many miles in the interest of young married couples. T. J. Murrah of Tulsa is another of the old and active soldiers who expressed himself as being well pleas ed with Ardniore's hospitality durinn the three days' stay here. Mr. and Mrs. J. H. Bean of Wood 'ville were in Ardmore to nttend the Confederate reunion. Mrs. 15ean went from here to Oklahoma City. Governor Robertson came in on a late train anil spoke to th veterans. A rousing chorus of deep voices gave vent to a warm greeting. Oovernor Robertson made a patriotic, American speech. No politics were mentioned. He said that Oklahoma is practically made up of other states wherein there is no north, no south, no east no west, but nil comprise, a citizenship I of the best Americans. He received ' round after round of cheers nnd ap I plause throughout his speech. lira Louisa Wilson, who at one time lived at Ada, but is now residing at 1'ontotoc with her daughter, Mrs. Charles Lewis, was among the guests during the reunion and said to ye scribe: "Oh. yes. I'm having . a de, lightful time. I'm all alone, but every one is doing something to make. It Pleasant for me, and I like to- attend the reunions." V. M. Locke ,a veteran of the south ern army and a pioneer resident of AMlers, gave u.s a glad hand-shake. We knew .Mr. Joi'ke several years ago when we spent a pleasant summer in the 'then small but picturesque little town of Anll.-ra. Miss Dorothy Arneti, an attractive young lady, nc-companli-d Mr. Locke and played the part of sponsor from the Antlers camp. The veteran told us that he had several with him in his party, all widowers, but that he was directly the best looking of the bunch. We did not get an opirortunity to confirm his word. Mrs. Frank S. Leach of Sedalia, Mo., who Is assistunt adjutant general to Adjutant General Coleman, of the Okla homa Division, nnd the only woman in the United States who has the title of Colonel in the V. C. V., was ths "bright light" of tho reunlofc. Mrj. Leach was appointed by the adjutant general to fill this important posi tion last year at the reunion at Tulsa when ,she rode a $400 horse up and down the lines and . carried messages lo (leileral Coleman. Mrs. Leach re ports at all Confederate reunion meets. She always pays her own expenses, which makes her services more appre ciated and her singing and readings are always a feature of these occa. slons. Her talent was recgnlzed hy the governor of Missouri during the war ami he appointed h(r ns one of those who went from camp to camp entertaining the -soldiers of the late war.

No vet I cran who attended the ball at Ard- more can ever forget the grand march land tho incident tlureto wheu the I (Continued on page 13) the west side of the state, and whos! name was placed In nomination for commander general, was the origin ator of this measure. Mr. Hargls Is one of the finest of the old veterans and Immediately withdrew his name in favor of Colonel J. J. McAlester, who was afterwards unanimously elected. . ' William D. Matthews, state commis sioner of charities and corrections, wan a prominent figure at the confederate reunion. Mr. Matthews is a frequent visitor to Ardmore and says he loves thp place. H was accompanied by Rev. J. M. Porter, district superin tendent of McAlester, who Is a son of a veteran of the, war of 1861-65. Col. R. A. Sliced of Oklahoma City, a perfect Chesterfield in manners, a typical outhern gentleman, is an Im portant figure in the activities of tho old soldiers and served hln comrades in Tjeing instrumental in carrying the Confederate pension law through, whereby every confederate veteran or widow of a veteran receives a monthly stipend. Col. Sneed paid a high tribute to Hon. Scott Ferris who was in Ard more Thursday .and made a short patriotic speech to a gathering of vet erans. ' C. W. Geers, one of the most ac tive of all the veterans of a never-to-be-forgotten war, who owns and pub lishes the Mill Creek N,.ws, without help of any kind, was among distin guished visitors at the reunion. Did you hear that lady expressing a wish for a picture of Colonel Sneed? The Colonel closely questioned her as to whether it was wanted for the l'ollcev (Sazette before he consented to allowing her to "snap" him. Mr. Miller of Healdton, who served his country during that period when men lost sight of self, was here to attend the reunion. Mr. Miller is bookkeeper foe C. P. Hall, who con-'!" ducts a furniture business at Heald-i ton. j . ii-ttuniaii, accompaniea oy nis i daughter. Mrs. Welch, both of Sulphur, i were here for the Confederate reunion. I Uoth expressed themselves as having i been royally entertained during their' stay. W. U. Walker, who can recall pio-1 neer days of Ada more than 20 years j :igo .logemer wun his wife, says he was treated so well that he had "a treat mind to stay right here in Ard more." They were guests of Mr. and Mrs, W. A. Colley, while in the city Mr. and Mrs. Walker, will spend the -emainder of the summer months in Sulphur. Mr and Mrs. It. W. Choate and little ;n. Ilruce M. Choate. were here from McAlester and .were guests of Mr. nnd Mrs. Porter Staples. Mrs. Choate and Irs. Staples were school friends n,l he two have visited back and forth I t intervals of time and kept fresh the memory of girlhood days. Little j liruce came in the duty of Mascot ti f the Jeff Lee camp, McAlester. He i .ore a Confederate gray suit with i houlder straps. He Is a names;Je of! 'ol. Henry Bruce so well beloved by j very old resident of the city, Mrs. ' noute had the distinction and de-- rved honor of representing Pit's . 1 urg county at the recent Women's democratic Convention as chairman nt Oklahoma City. She and little son will Wslt in Marietta and Sapulpa. both before returning to her home in Mc Alester. The camp fire at Central Park was ii great feature of the reunion and the crowd filled the park. This was where they .had the old fiddlers' contest In vhleh If. C, Gilliland of Altus and We got a little twisted on the mat ter of who was originator of the sol dier, pension law. Hut as we under stand it Mr. Hargls, a lawyer from Gen. William Taylor, who it is said better understands" the western par: of Oklahoma than any veteran living, was here and for the reason above stated his name was placed in nomina tion for the greatest hon,ir that can be bestowed on an old veters.ii, that of commander. Like Mr. Hargi he too, withdrew and left an open field for General McAlester, well beloved by every comrade of the order. Tale rrady, state commander for Sons, and a millionaire oil king o.' Tulsa, and one' of the young men of the (lay who takes an active part and deep Interest in all that pertains to the old soldiers, was present and in the name of the Sons and Daughters of Tulsa extended an invitation to the veterans to make Tulsa their next meeting place. Shawnee, was offered, but it was a wise organization that selected the "Wonder City" wherein to gather for their next love feast. Mr. Hrady offers to pay all expenses of the soldiers of the Confederate Home, provide a special car, with all the trimmings and a key to unlock every place in the city. H. G. Gilliland of Altus, who won first prize In tho old fiddlers' contest, will go to Olney, Tex., where he will play the night of the Nth in a Chau tauqua contest of the same' nature. Mr. Gilliam has played in IS contests In cities from Washington City t Texas and in the 18 contests has won 17 first prizes. He carries a beautiful watch, bearing an inscription of 1901 and says It has kept perfect time.
