A general meeting of the Chant* ber of Commerce was held at the revival tabernacle last evening. Mr. Cowing, the efficient chairman of the bod}', presided and brought before the members for their consideration several matters of importance.
The meeting was called primarily for the purpose of giving relief to the citizens and business men in the matter of making public donations. signing subscription sheets, patronizing various advertising schemes, etc., etc.
It was stated that the business people of the city were subjected daily, and almost hourly here of late, to solicitors and “drummers” for first one kind of a proposition and another, and that they were unable, under the present unorganized system of things, to distinguish between that which is worthy and that which is not.
It was shown that solicitors had I •worked” the town for donations

THIS REALLY IS IMPORTANT
July 28, 1919.
Mr. Marvin Brown,
The Ada News,
My Dear Mr. Brown:
I want to express to you our appreciation of the stand you have taken with reference to the Court House proposition.
There is another proposition of equal importance, which might be included in the same procedure, that of a County Hospital.
Under the provisions of Chapter 273, Session Laws of 1919, the Board of County Commissioners are pennitted to order an election for the purpose of voting bonds for the purchase of site and construction of a County Hospital.
To one familiar with the enormous sums expended by the county, during the recent epidemic of influenza, as well as the sums expended by the Chamber of Commerce, the City of Ada, the noble and heroic work of the local chapter of the Red Cross, and the citizens of the city of Ada, the importance of such an institution is apparent.
Again assuring you of our appreciation of the “Eveing New and its stand on the matter of the County Court House, and with many good wishes for its continued success, I am,
Yours very trulv,

To Satisfy Her Conscience
That Rev. M. F. Ham is doing good in Ada is attested by what took place bere yesterday.
Recently a second-hand store in Ada bought some furniture from a family who was moving out of the city. The family left early in the morning and the second-hand man did not go for the goods until late that afternoon. He noticed that some of the goods were missing, but not knowing who got them, said nothing about it.
Yesterday a woman walked into the second-hand store and asked the proprietor the price of certain goods. He named the price and she paid him the money. She then gave him other goods which she had wrapped in paper.
The woman stated that it took nerve to come to se* him like this, but that she had heard Ham preach the night before and that she had to come to see him to relieve her guilty conscience. She was thanked for bringing back the goods. • i
Who says Ham is not doing good in Ada?
