The January number of the Manu-
facturer's Record, published at Balti-
more, has three Oklahoma articles in
it by three different Oklahoma men.
As this number was a special issue
this is of much importance to Okla-
homans interested in the development
of the state. One of the articles is on
oil and gas, by Professor Gould; an-
other on Building Stone, by Mr. L.
L. Hutchison; and the other on Okla-
homa's Equipment for Material Pro-
gress, by F. M. Posegate of Tulsa.

ONE OF THE DRAWBACKS.
~ IS STIRRED UP SOME."
□ The Hon. A. D. Hickok isKsome
what startled to learn that the
School Land Loan Department had
adopted a rule limiting the time of
loans of the school money of the
state to one year. Mr. Hickok
seems to think longer time loans
would be less expensive and more
beneficial to borrower and school fund.
Mr. Hickok, is doubtless correct, but
the convenience of the borrower and
the school fund are not all the in-
terests school money can be made to
serve in the state. To reduce the
expense of handling the school money
to the minimum and to yield great-
est net profits to the fund does not
necessarily cause it to yield so hand-
somely to men employed to look after
the fund, in other words it does not
create so much business to be hand-
led by the department.
TOO LONG A ROUTE-
"The life of an actor is a hard one,
"I should say it was! It's almost
impossible to borrow a dollar, if you're
an actor!"—Meggendorfer Blaetter.
Child Has Four Great-Grandfathers.
Wheat ley Hemenway, the two-year-
old son of Mr. and Mrs. Wheatley
Hemenway, who lives at Twelfth ave-
nue and Fauntleroy street, has four
great-grandfathers living and he says
on the authority of his proud parents
that no infant in Seattle can make
such a boast. The old "boys" are
Scattered from Seattle at Michigan;
they are all- active and capable of
earning their own living. The oldest
is 89 and the youngest a mere youth
'claiming 74 years. The quartet, unless
their ranks should be thinned by the
grim reaper, will meet at the Alaska-
Yukon-Pacific exposition next year.
The aggregate ages of the four great-
grandfathers is 320 years and the end,
according to their Seattle relatives, is
by no means in sight.—Seattle Times.
During a recent examination of
of applicants for the position of

the moon"? was the first question
"How fall am it from de earf to
de mooni*" he repeated, as he began
to reach for his hat. "say, boss,
if you's gwine to put me on that
route I don't want de job."—Circle
