Jail Prisoners To McAlester

Sheriff Blanton left early Wednesday morning for McAlester accompained by Carroll Moody, John Law, Earl Witten and Frank Mathies, as special guards for the prisoners transportation.  The prisoners removed included the three Wynnewood robbers, W.R. Calloway, L.L. Calloway, Raymond Wilson, and J.D. Myers, convicted of robbing Wynnewood Filling Station.  It will be quite a relief to the officers to be rid of these parties who have been considered dangerous since their incarceration in November.  It has been deemed necesary to employ two special night guards to prevent possible jail deliveries.  The greatest precautions have been used to prevent any chance to make excape.  These robbers are supposed to have connection with several dangerous and notorious criminals who are known to be at liberty.  These prisoners would have been taken to McAlester sooner but for an order of the warden to vaccinate them against small pox and hold them fourteen days.  The time expired yesterday.   This leaves a large number in the county jail but none of them confined on serious charges and the guard and extra precautions will probably not be observed with the same degree of vigilience as has been used for the past four months.

Fair Store Opening with Style Show

The new Fiar Department Store successors tot he Van Hoozer Store, announce the opening of this new department store with a style show on Friday evening, March 2nd, at which time the new spring apparel will be displayed on live models at the store during the evening.  an elaborate program has been arranged for the entertainment of the crowds who will attend the opening of this new store.  The general public is invited to visit the store on Driday evening, see the newest spring styles and hundreds of other items of interest to the buying public.  Permission has been given by the management to the high school boys and girls who will arrange a number of reserved seats in the store for which they will charge 10 cents each, the proceeds going to the school.  But you do not have to pay admission and are invited to attend and be present regardless of taking a reserve seat for the evenings program.  An orchestra has been engaged for the evenings entertainment which will furnish music.  A style show with live models, and other entertainment features will be had.  A beauty contest will be one of the features of the evening.  The successful young lady will be given an opportunity at the expense of the Fair Department Store to try at the state beauty contest.

Russell's Return From Eastern Markets

Mr. and Mrs. Hardee Russell returned Sunday from the eastern markets where they spent then days completing the purchases of spring and summer merchandise for this popular department store.  Mr. Russell states that he selected some of the most beautiful spring styles he has ever shown, most of which is now here and on display for the approval of the public.  Plans are now being made to rebuilt the front of the Russell building adding up-to-date show windows which when completed will be a long needed want filled.  This is one of the best locations in the city but has been sorely handicapped by the lack of a modern front.

W.R. Wren Receives Watchmakers Diploma

W.R. Wren of the local firm of M.B. Smith, Pauls Valley's leading jewelry store, has recently passed the Horological test and received his diploma as a certified watchmaker.  Mr. Wren has made a record to be proud of.  After serving as a soldier in the world war he was placed in government training school at San Antonio, Texas where he took up watch making, serving two and a half years, after which he was transferred to M.B. Smith's in Pauls Valley to complete his course.  Mr. Wren has worked faithfully with Mr. Smith for three years, completing his course wiht flying colors and has succeeded in passing all the requirement tests of the Horological Institute of America, Washington, D.C. and received his diploma.  The Horological Institute of America was organized to promote the science of timekeeping, under the auspices of the National Research Council of Washington, D.C..  The examination given by the Institute are of three grades, varying in difficulty but very practical and consisting of first class watch repairing and a written examination on theory and technique.  After the applicant has completed the repair work, the watch is tested by the National Bureau of Standards at Washington to ascertain its efficiency in timekeeping and the work is further closely examined and graded by the Certificate Committee of the Horolgical Institute.

Cox Abstract Co. To New Quarters

Sentences In The District Court

Several sentences were passed by the District Court Tuesday during a short non-jury term.  G.O. Lynn of Shawnee, Oklahoma, entered a plea of guilty to the charge of forgery and received a sentence of two years in the penitentiary at McAlester.   He was charged with passing a forged check to the Williamson Grocery Company and receiving some groceries and cash in excahnge.  Thurmond Baker was given a suspended sentence of two years on a charge of burglary.  It was charged that he broke into the store of J.A. Roy of Pauls Valley and took some clothes he had previously left there.   The statements of witnesses showed that he was intoxicated at the time he did this.   Raymond Henry, a young Indian boy was given a suspended sentence of two years in the Granite Reformatory on a charge of forgery, it being charged that he passed a forged check of $5.00 to Shumate & Sons for some goods and money.  Henry had served about ninety days int he county jail, previous to entering his plea.

District Court Monday

Another jury term of the District Court will begin Monday, opening with some criminal cases.  The first three days of the court will be devoted to criminal cases, and the rest of the term to civil business.  The case of State vs Buster Cape and W.H. Finley will probably be the first called.  Several other criminal cases will probably be disposed of during the three days.  Cape will be tried for the killing of Henry Martin on November 3rd, on the streets of Pauls Valley.  At a previous trial the jury was unable to reach a verdict, and a mistrial was had.

Hurt Candidate For County Attorney

Homer L. Hurt, assistant County Attorney for the past four years, will be a candidate for the office of County Attorney to succeed Mr. Moody who will not be a candidate for re-election, subject to the Democratic primaries next August.  Mr. Jurt will make his announcement as soon as he gets time.  The county attorneys office has been busy this week preparing for the March term of court which opens next Monday and for a week or more will be busy with cases before district court after which he will have time to give attention to his announcement.  Mr. Hurt has been a splendid assistant and is well qualified for the office of county attorney and his experience the past four years will be invaluable to him as the county prosecutor.  We have heard of no opposition to his candidacy and it is possible that he may be the only applicant upon the democratic ticket.  His announcement and his views upon law enforcement will appear shortly.

Dies At Hosptial

Charles E. Turner, age 37 years, died at the Pauls Valley Sanitarium on Sunday.  Deceased who was a resident of Maysville and opertor of a garage and service station in that city, was brought to the hospital a week before for treatment and operation for absess of the lungs.  Funeral services were conducted at the Methodist church in Maysville Monday afternoon followed by interment in the Maysville cemetery.   Deceased is survived by a wife and five children.  James Stufflebean of the local undertaking firm of Stufflebean and Meyers had cahrge of the funeral arrangements.


Fair Department Store Stages Opening

The opening night of the new Fair Department Store successors to the Van Hoozer Store, held on last Friday evening was a most brilliant affair drawing crowds and making new history for Pauls Valley and Garvin County.  Brilliantly lighted and artistically decorated the stock were displayed in a most befitting manner.  Dozens of baskets of flowers sent by local business and professional people with many coming from out of city wholesale firms added to the decoratings and gave a touch of gayety that was in tune with the gala occasion.  Mrs. Joe Loftin rendered two vocal solos as a part of the program, and Mr. Slader of of Carnegie also gave two vocal numbers.  An orchestra interspersed the evening's program with music in keeping with the occasion.   A style show in the newest in ladies, misses and gentlemen and little men'a apparel was shown on live models.  Those modeling for the occasion were:  Miss Marie Monroe as Miss Fair, Mrs. Floyd Raybon, Misses Mary Neil Edwards, Nena B. Bentley, Vera Kennedy, Wanda Grimmett, Harriett Houghlin, Katherine Camp, Christine Bennett, Marie Stokes, Irene Wilson, Virginia Ross, Katherine Goad, Paul Laverne Goad, Rebecca Lou Cox, Mercedes Frier, Marion Glasco, Mrs. Pauline Glasco, and Ivanett Childress of Duncan.    Those modeling men's and boys clothing were: Herman Longshore, Hobart, Clyde   Sherrill, Richard Blanton, Meyer Winkleman and John Hugh Taylor, Jr.  Opening for business Saturday morning the Fair Department Store has been enjoying a splendid business and the manager, Mr. Hugh Taylor, is highly pleased with the opening reception and response to the efforts of this firm to give the citizens of this county a first class store.  W. Winkeman, one of the proprietors, was present for the opening Friday and Saturday and was highly elated at the prospects of business in this city.

Dr. H.C. Laird Visits in City

Dr. H.C. Laird, one time resident of htis city and who yet nominally claims Pauls Valley as home, was a visitor in the city this week looking after business matters and visiting friends.  Dr. Laird who is a specialist has spent considerable time in New York City taking special post graduate work the past two years and while there met many eminent men of his profession among them a Lieut. Proctor Fields of the U.S. Marines, who is now in Nicaragua and from Whom Dr. Laird had a letter recently giving an account of Lieut. Fields work in South America.

Improvement at Mt. Olivet Cemetery

The ladies of the Cemetery Association who have charge of the work as well as city officials who provide most of the funds for the work are to be congratulated upon the splendid work and improvements of the grounds at Mt. Olivet Cemetery south of the city.  The ladies early in December arranged for the employment of a full time sexton who has been busy for the past three months cleaning the grounds, making fills in the low places and grading the streets until a wonderful appearance has been wrought.  It is the hope of those in charge to get work up to where, with the cooperation of lot owners, the grounds may be kept clean during the summer months as well as glowers and new shrubbery grown.  The association do not have sufficient funds at their command to have all the work done including cleaning of the individual lots and graves but if they can get the cooperation of the owners of lots to keep them cleaned they will have sufficient funds to keep the grounds clean and attractive.  Individuals who will assist in the work by cleaning their lots will greatly help the work.  If you do not have time to look after your lots or live out of the city you can arrange with the sexton to have the work done at a nominal fee.  He will arrange to look after cleaning your grave or lot regular throughout the year if you desire.  The Cemeery is lcoated on the highway No. 77 and thousands of tourists will pass by the grounds during the spring and summer and it would be a splendid advertisement for the community to have a clean and well kept cemetery.  It shows pride.  We have it.  Let's show it.


I, W.R. Bell, Mayor of the city of Pauls Valley, Okla., by virture of the power vested in met as Mayor, and at the request of the Civic Committee do hereby proclaim Wednesday, March 21st, 1928, a day set aside as "CLEAN UP DAY" and insist that every resident within the city limits of Pauls Valley to place all garbage and refuse of every kind in a receptacle in the alley so that same can be collected and hauled off by the city wagons.  W.R.
