Roland returned yesterday from Chickasha where he has been assisting the defense in the preliminary hearing of Oscar Simpson, who was ousted from the office of county attorney by a grand jury some time ago. The trial consumed practically the whole week., It was heard by Paul Walker, who is referee of the atate supreme court. The defense and prosecution were given 30 days in which to transcribe testimony for the case and thirty-! five additicnal days to complete the! briefs, after which the case will come to trial. Mr. Roland says they have every reason to believe Mr. Simpson will t come clear of the charges made against him. IT is in human nature to love mystery, to seek the solution of riddles, to peer through the mists that hide the unknown. Between the two poles of our existence we are explorers in a world of chance and change. Each day is a challenge; we face the morning buoyed by curiosity as to the outcome. The realists’ stern warning that life! is a hard business helps us little; it is romance that keeps us young. What lies within reach is insufficient for our happiness; our thoughts dance forward nimbly to the next hilltop, which promises new and lovelier vistas. I find that old men, in recalling their early struggles, dwell with something of superstitious awe upon the unforeseen opportunities, the happy surprises which turned the tide in their affairs and carried them on to fortune. # * We are all seekers of the Fortunate Isles, undismayed by the shipwrecks that litter the sea, confident that the horizon curtains a I o n g-sought haven and the treasure of our dreaming. There is, for us all, somewhere a buried treasure. In the town where I was horn, an old lady watched anxi ously the demolition of a house where, as a child, she had hidden a penny in a chink in the wall. And— oh, wonderful!—the coin was found among the ruins—the symbol of her youth that had slipped away forever. Summer opens wide the doors of imagination and memory. We renew acquaintance with the stars and experience a spiritual rebirth into the kingdom of dreams. Innumerable Americans take advantage of their vacations to visit “the old home,”-and the “home town.” These pilgrimages are sweetened by the remembrance of youthful quests — for arrow-heads along ti.c river or the particular tree in the old orchard where the apples reddened first. “Where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.” Thrice blest are they who are rich in memories, more precious than much fine gold, of help given and love bestowed. These are like pennies hidden is secrecy, and they constitute the enduring satisfactions of life. meeting which begins with the coming of Dr. Ham next Thursday, as it is an echo of the great revival which these same evangelists closed in Shawnee only a few' weeks ago. It will be the link which will join the Shawnee meeting wTith our own making the two one immense religious effort for this section of the state. Besides Dr. Smith, others from Shawnee will make short fraternal talks. It is not possible to announce the names of these speak-; ers, but it is definitely arranged that two laymen at least will be here. Miss Emma K.

Peculiarly the returned soldier’s name "Oklahombi” is the Choctaw word for "mankiller." under pressing circumstances. Every safe guard will be placed around the comfort of the congregation in this respect so that their attendance upon the service will be free from care and annoyance.
