Zippo Is usually a cheerful sort of h monkey and enjoys greatly the game of dodging the soft rubber spheres. Therefore his grief was strange.

It nearly broke his heart, yes sir. Monk Is a proud monkey and the sentimental slush about 'his piteous cries and the look of sorrow on his face was more than his pride would stand.' Yes sir, monkeys have self-repepct like other people and when a newspaper comes along and holds you np to the pitying lontempt of other people, it would naturally hurt your pride. That Is what is the matter with the monk. He Is misunderstood, yes sir. "Tssahh, psst, woom, woom," said monk, having stopped Ills sobbing and listening to the conversation. "Says, explained the man, says he agrees with me, says that darned Phoenix would make an honest money ashamed of hlm-seh'.'

There Is nc cruelty to animals In the performance. BRIDE RETURNED GROOM JAGGED Fort Smith, Ark., Oct. 17.

SULLIVAN SAYS STORY FALSE (Continued from page one.) Tlmes-Democrat that the latter part of that statement was absolutely false. He further -stated that so far 88 having agreed to meet a certain committee with a certain paving contract attorney, that after the session ot the council on Monday tfght, he agreed to so meet the attorney, providing other official business did not intervene. At the time and place of said meeting official duties in police court deterred his attendance and consequently he wus not present. In addition thereto, Mr. Sullivan stated that at no time previous, and there were many times when he could have been called into requisition, h s presence nor his counsel were sought. As to iris relations with the city council he states without fear -of successful contradiction that he, as city attorney, ar.d the members of the council, acting as such, have yet for the first time to clash, as the Phoenix has so published. In all matters pertaining to or which may appertain to, the best'lnterest of al citizens, he says, that he stands teady and willing to assist and advise not only with the citizens of Moskogee, whose representative he Is, but with the city council. In all matters pertaining to personal aggrandizement he, as a pub-, 11c official, must stand aside and lebk on until such a time comes that he feett that he must step Into the breach,' with a declaration that he s tor alt of the people all of the Our Boys and Childrens - Department .

He says that he ,is willing to stand on his record. The inspiration of the article Mr. Su'Mvan knows nothing of, ' but In the so-called negject of mayormanic and councllmanlc duty, he hazards an opinion that the said neglect Is caused from the fact that In la suit brought by the heirs oJW. W. Cook, wl and wherein service was 'had upon the mayor of Muskogee, that notice of said suit was never brought U his attention and that upon a default judgment thereon In the United States district court 'granted the same, and further, wherein the First National Bank of this City ' garnisheed the Stuckey Paving company and made the city of Muskogee garnishee defendant In the sum of $1,-600 and summons of the same was FROM DIANAS DAIRY Panting for Adventure, Miss Dilip iekles Answers a Matiimoniul Ad and Draws a Blank in Cupids Lottery. , BY F.

What I wrote to Mr. Finglemow-er, the "Lonely Rancher, was simply that his letter did not give me -much ot a squint at his True Worth, would he please send me ,a LIKENESS of himself. I also told himylie need not mention the $75,000 again, as any possible regasd , I might cultivate for him would not necessarily be of a mercenary brand. Well, he must have liked my letter PRETTY well., for he promptly came back with a photograph. You should see it. I guess ho lives on a ranch,' all right. It Was with mingled. If -not mangled emotions that J studied the phiz of Philemon Flnglemower. It shines with honest simplicity. So does his celluloid collar. Judg getting for the least 200 W. OKMULGEE served upon the mayor, and no notice thereof was given him until subsequent as he expresses- it default day. If that Is neglect, then Mr. Sullivan says that he pleads guilty. If there 'has been neglect on tha other side of the house. If there has been dereliction In advancing to him notices of spits brought against the city, theji he says that he thinks that such things that are Caesars should be rendered unto Caesar, and sueh things as are Romes should "be endered unto Rome., He further stated that for t'he conduct of h'is office he has no apologies to offer, no enemies to punish, no friends to reward and the many people of Muskogee it the ensuing election will be asked to pass upon his conduct, his merits aud his office.

It is of the Improved Mammoth variety, on which our common ancestor would have chol ed to death Ah, thought I to myself, what If It IS my destiny to face this manly countenance across the conjugal breakfast table in the hitherward future? It was NOT love at first eight. But I did speculate somewhat tenderly as to how Mr. Flnglemower would look after being attended to in a city barber shop. - And also, I felt awful romantic corresponding, like I was, with someone so many miles -away and only knowing him through an ad. So I sat down and sent Mr. Fin-glemower MY picture. (To be continued.) - - Dr. SHimoon DENTIST Phone 21 ' English BIocK ' MARCHESS PERUZZI Florence, Italy, Oct ' 17.
