MRS. BA KKR OF STRATFORD
PAS ESS IX) BEYOND.
Mrs. It. P. Balter, mother of Mrs. M. F. Rayless of Stratford, died Monday night at 8:30 at the home of her daughter.
Deceased was born in Kentucky in 18 65. She was reared for the most part of her life in Paris, Texas. where she lived until one year ago when she went to live with her daughter. Mrs. Bay less. Death was caused from cancer of th** Stomach, from which she had suffered long.
One of her fondest hopes was realized when she was permitted to live until she might clasp the hand of her youngest son. Henry Baker, who returned from France two weeks ago when* he had been in the service of his country for more than a yc*ar.
When the death angel came Monday on the wings of eventide to waft her white soul to the land of the beyond, it was with a smile that she greeted the messenger for she was weary of life’s struggle and was anxious for her journey here to end. so that she might find peace and rest in that celestial city.
The body was brought to Ada today and shipped on the 1:45 Frisco to Paris for interment.
Tile Easter egg hunt Monday afternoon was enjoyed by all the pupils. A prize was awarded to Clinton Roberts and Jimmie Reec* West for finding the golden egg. The good neighbors of the n« igh-borhood came in and hid the eggn, as is their custom.

Senator Johnson, in his speech favoring the road bonds delivered in the streets of Ada Monday afternoon. paid some attention to former Governor Lee Truce who is opposing the bonds. Using an article from Cruce taken from the Oklahoman, he replied to various teatures ami challenged Otuce's claim to being a broad minded progressive citizen. He declared that it is said that Cilice has to this day refused to put down a sidewalk along part of his home place in Ardmore and has always managed to kill any proposition to pave the street. He also called attention to Cruce’s stand in favor of abolishing some of the state schools and to the report often repeated in the past few years that Cruce opposed the establishment of public free schools in Ardmore in territa-rial days.
The speaker reverie*, to what other states are doing, notably Illinois with $60,000,000 and Michigan $50,000,000 for roads, either voted already or soon to be voted on. and still others preparing to vote on larger amounts.
Th* county unit has proved a failure, since the roads are necessarily limited to the county boundaries and the adjoining counties seldom meeting the one that builds, hence the state unit Is the only practical one. He mentioned the various provisions of the measure, pointing out the ways and means of raising the ftinds and how most it not all will be paid front automobile and gross production taxes. Ho declared that he wants to see the pioneers of the state get some of the benefits of the roads now and not wait for the next generation to build after the present one has passed away.
Col. Sidney Suggs based the main part of his argument on the cost of the present system to the tax payers for w'hieh they get no returns worth mentioning. In 1912. during his term as highway commissioner, sworn reports from the* various counties showed that the sum of $4,105,299.84 was spent on roads and he estimates that no less than $7,000,000 annually is being •‘pouf now. As most of this goes for dirt roads they ar** soon Washta! out and the money wasted. The same money would go a long ways toward paying for permanent roads.
It is doubtful if any other man in the state is as well informed about the cost of road building than Col. Suggs. He estimates that since much grading has already been done by the various counties the toads proposed in the bond issue can be put down at not more than $12,500 per mile, instead of $23,000 as claimed by opponents of the measure.
col. Suggs is working for a national highway system and as a beginning in this country the Oil Cities Highway, but incidentally is putting in a few effective blows for the proposed state bond issue.

BRIAN MAT DEAD I
At 2:i5 this afternoon pandemonium broke loose and knocked a few boards off the walls of folks* fraid-box in tile alley between Main and Tenth. A team, hitched to a wagon, became frightened and ran at a startling speed straight down the alley from Townsend. The last seen of tin* fleeing beasts was a cloud of dust and a wagon seat cutting gyrations through the air. In several instances life insurance policies came near maturing, the inquisitive contingent of population being too anxious to get a near first-hand view of the occurrence.
This is a fin** argument against good roads. Mad the alley, which is now paved, been in its former condition, and like hundreds of miles of the public roads all over the county, it would have been impossible for this runaway to have occurred the horses would have stuck in the mud and been easily overtaken by their master.
Later The animals turned north when near the Katy tracks and were caught by J. A. Crane as they raced through his garden. The only damage noted was the loss of two spokes in a rear wheel.
