Something to Consider
The Republicans at Kingfisher
certainly hoged things. Hennes-
In Hennessey township and
the tirst and second precincts in
Hennessey city there were sev-
enty eight votes polled against
J. A. Liddle for sheriff and in
Kingfisher township and city he
received sixty-two votes. Nine-
ty one votes were polled against
R. W. Wylie for probate judge in
Hennessey township and city.
In Kingfisher township and city
he received thirty-eight votes.
'•Buck" Campbell, of the Ok-
lahoma Hornet at Waukomis was
nominated representative to the
state legislature in the second
district of Garfield county on
the republican ticket at the re-
cent primaries. If "Ruck" is
elected and keeps up the reputa
tion of his editorials run in his
paper under the heads of "Pep-
per and Salt" and "Hornetts"
there will, no doubt, be some
"stinging" done in the future
sessions of the Oklahoma legis-
Importations of art works for
the last fiscal year amounted in
value to $'.'1,000,1100, as against
*3,800,000 for the previous year.
That is one more excellent re
suit of the new tariff as we are
glad to find even some of its
political assailants admitting
The Payne tariff removed much
of the previous barbaric embar-
go on culture and the means of
instruction and improving plea
The art duties had not a leg of
reasonable justification to stand
on, whether in point of revenue
or protective purpose. The
revenue produced was compara
tively infinitesimal, and the no
tion of the fine arts as a domestic
industry to be protected against
foreign cheap wages was simply
grotesque and an affront to the
supposedly protected class.
Getting Paid for Knowing How
Why do printers so seldom gel
pay for "knowing how?" Not long
ago the daughter of a New England
clergeman of moderate means took
a journey abroad, relates the Ameri-
can Buletin. While in Paris a
sudden and alarming trouble de-
veloped in one of her eyes. She
consulted several physicians, but
they didn't seem to bnow what was
the matter, and she began to think
that she would lose the sight of it.
She finaly visited a well-known eye
specialist. He examined the eye,
and quickly taking a delicate in-
strument made a slight surgical
operation. The whole did not con-
sume more than five minutes, and
she was told that her eye would be
alright next day, and so it was.
But when she came to get the bill
she wasappalled. It was500francs.
She immedialty hastened back to
the specialist and ask how he could
charge her |500 francs for such a
slight operation. "Why, my poor
ma'amoiselle," exclaimed the,doctor
in his broken English, I cearge you
but two francs for ze operation, and
498 francs for ze knowing how.
Ze eye—ees et not worth ze 500
Gompers' Testimony for the Tariff
1 Mr. Gompers, president of the
American Federation of Labor,
made a visit of some months in
Europe, where lie investigated
trade conditions, and as he had
no party interest to serve, what
he says is entitled to great
weight. Speaking of the cost of
living in the United States, as
pompared with European coun-
tries, he says: "If the immi-
grant to this country is willing
to continue living here on the
sama level lit was obliged to ac-
cept in his native land he can find
it for the same money," That
is the truth. In fact, on the
same level, he can live for less
in the United States, while bis
wages will be several times
greater. This is the reason a
million and more immigrants
come to this country annually.
Mr. Gompers, in his report to
the Federation of Labor, says:
"Living is cheap to the wage
workes in Europe only because
he does without what in Ameri-
ca soon becomes a necessary to
him—food in good quantity and
and quality, presentable clothes,
and a comfortable furnished
home, and in general a larger
and freer life. Meat is usually
from "5 to 100 per cent higher
than in the United States. The
immigrant, coming to America,
finds that if he can buy in quan-
tity (and in cases where he need
not) his Hour, fuel, potatoes, oil,
sugar coffee, salt the essentials
for his plain table—all cost less
than they ordinarily do in
the land he left. The cheap-
ness and abundance of many
varieties of fruits and of our
melons and tomatoes is a sur-
prise to him."
Mr. CJompers goes 011 to point
out the things that are cheaper
in this country than in Europe—
cotton clothing, shoes, newspa-
pers, amusements, education,
etc. He says that in 110 city in
Europe did he find re'its any
cheaper, wages considered, than
in the United States, while an
American would be surprised
over "how little the European
renting wage-worker gets for
his money." As to wages, Mr.
Gompers tells with surprise of
the demands made at the British
Trade Union Congress at Ips-
wich where it was stated rail-
way workmen got £1.^5 a week,
agricultural labors 1- shillings
($- 88), builders'laborers Scents
an hour, and so on, And yet
there are hundreds of thousands
of workmen seeking employ-
ment in the United Kingdom
even at such pitiable wages.
Why this enormous difference
from the wages paid in the Unit
ed States? Britain is a free-
trade country and the United
States is under a protective tar-
iff. That is cause of the differ-
ence in wages. And yet the
Domocrats and insurgents want
to reduce American workmen to
the European level.
Widowhood In China.
According to the laws of good so-
ciety In China, young wldowB should
not remarry. Widowhood is, therefore,
held In highest esteem, and the older
the widow grows the more agreeable
her position becomes. Should she
reach fifty years she may, by apply-
ing to the emperor, get a sum of mon-
ey with which to buy a tablet, on
which her virtues are inscribed. The
tablet Is then placed over the door at
the principal entrance of her bouse.
If the mother who can possibly af-
ford It will have her baby observed
during its first few months by a good
nurse or physician, the mother will be
saved much anxiety and the baby
stands a better chance of health. This
does not mean to be a crank on health.
It does mean advise your doctor of
every appearance of pain or distress;
then heed his advice.

one of our homes desolate when
Mrs. Q. H. Raltin's spirit slipped

Mrs. Ralstin has been a sufferer

for the patient sufferer to lull the
pain or cheer the dreary days.
