TO MOVE TOWN.
The town of Keokuk Palls, it Is
said, Is to be moved a mile further
into Pottawatomie county. It is now
so near the line that one of the fre-
quent changes of the river might put
it almost anywhere. The Palls has
had a rather unsavory reputation as
a rendezvous for bootleggers and dis-
orderly persons, and it is to be hoped
that the change In location will also
make a change in liabits.
It is an absolute necessity that 10th
street at least be opened through to
the east limits and paved. It Is nec-
essary for the whole of the city and
not for the east side alone.
With the fruit crop damaged in the
northern states and also in Missouri,
Kansas, Arkansas and Texas, It cer-
tainly looks good for the orchardlsts
of the new state. It is an ill wind,
REMEDY THE CONSTITUTION.
The eonstitutional convention will
meet again on Tuesday to go over the
tinal edition of (he constitution and
pass on it. We trust that for the short
lime they will be in session the dele-
gates will see fit to forget politics and
given all equal justice, especially in
the matter of county boundary lines.
There are a number of things that
are lacking, as, for instance, the re-
call clause of the referendum, and
there are others that should not. be
inserted, as an example, the boundary
lines, already mentioned. No one
knows better what the people want
and demand than the delegates them-
selves, and It Is literally up to them
to make good. Tlje Shawnee News
believes that such a sacred Instrument
of government as the constitution
should be allowed to be perfected with
all trace of partisanship stricken out.
If the delegates are still In favor
of a combination constitution and leg-
islative document, the suggestion of
the Saturday Evening Post last week
Is timely Indeed. It suggested that
the legislature have by a, himple ma
jorlty vote the right to change the
constitution at any time needed. Such
suggestion would not be in order were

The cotton crop is expected to be
the biggest Oklahoma has ever known.
Seeding has already begun in many
places, and it is said that the acreage
will be largely Increased over previous
years. Cotton Is really the staple.

who admire the chivalry of the
knights of the middle nges, who went
abroad redressing wrongs and rescu-
ing maldns in distress, withhold our
sympathy from this brave man? But
the reason knights went abroad in th<
middle ages redressing wrongs was
that the middle ages did not have the
omnipresent courts and officers of the
law that we have today. The way to
redress wrongs in New York is

Williams shoved twenty dollar bills
down the coat collars of business
men, and tried to give his money,
which was all in twenty dollars bills,
to newspaper men. In the Turner
hotel he tore bills in two. From there
he went to a tailor shop where he
desired to get them sewed together.
He said he was a good natured wolf
from the forks of the creek and was
seeing the sights.
He created a sensation in the First
National bank, when he presented a
roll of these bills to President Dabbs
which the latter r(fused.

SHAWNEE WANTS PURE MILK.
Pure mlllc is a necessity of life,
especially In the life of the child
More so where babies are fed on bot-
tles. At present Shawnee Is without
any means of milk Inspection or leg-
islation to compel that nothing but
pure and unadulterated milk be sold
the consumer. This condition must
be remedied, and The Shawnee News
knowing from observation nnd exper-
ience that there Is great adulterating
going on, will from now on wage a
fight against any but the best of milk.
There are so many ways of tamper-
ing. that this great evil, which is
practiced naturally for profit. Is diffi-
cult to eradicate without a systematic
milk inspection. Many Infants are be-
ing sacrificed that an unjust profit
may be made, and disease is generally
found where impure milk Is used. It
may entail some expense to secure
proper milk, but human life and a
healthful living are worth far more)
than the little cost and energy It may j
take to secure pure milk.
So much depends on this prime es-
sential of existence that It Is difficult
to conceive what man would do with-
out It. With plenty of farms and
milch cows in the surrounding country
about Shawnee, The News feels that
it is voicing a popular cry when it
demands that all Impure and adulter-
ated milk be forbidden on the mar-
The big healthy man may not care
or Interest himself In the movement,
but we know that the fond mother
with her baby child realizes the harm-
ful efTects of impure milk on her
household, where she is in constant
fear of feeding it, less it cause bad r<
suits, or. bad enough, falls to give
the proper nourishment. It is our
