On account of the failure of the
crop in America, dealers say lem-

cents a dozen before the year is
out. This, however, will have no
effect on the price of red lemonade,
for obvious reasons. — Renfrow

Have you made up your mind
to vote for or against the repeal of
section nine of article nine, of the
state constitution?You get another
chance in August to vote on it.
Do not go up against another
man's game; get a game of your
own and play it to the limit. And
by the way, a game where both
parties do not win is immoral. —
We do not know whether condi-
tions have changed with years, but
it is a fact that it takes more brains
to successfully conduct a farm
now than most any other business
we know of.
We have always stood up for
Coburn, but when he says we
should be happy and tear our
shirt boosting whether the chinch
bugs kill everything or not, we
dunno about it.
what he meant. When they under-
stand that fully they may help to
make a better government out of
what they have. Heretofore part
of them have been trouble mak-
ers.—Pryor Creek Clipper.
"If we had war with Japan or
Germany we would be licked out
of our boots," says Chauncy M.
Depew. Perhaps so, but even
then we might continue to fight.
Some of America's most gloirous
victories were won by men who
were barefooted, cold and hungry.
Surely the quick and easy road
to wealth is being transformed in-
to one of doubtful purport and
hard sledding. McMuiray just
had contracts that would have
netted him and his ilk three and
a half million of dollars and Roose-
velt only got six cents on ten thou-
sand sued for.—Alva Pioneer.
The more we learn about the
Warner case the worse it gets.
Warner betrayed his best friends
and posed as a staunch enemy of
graft during the legislature when
he knew that he was an embezzler
to the amount of several thousand
dollars and that it would all come
to light in a short time.—Dover
As fast as the state health off-
icers can get around to it they are
requiring the towns to prohibit
the selling of milk from any cows
that have not been inspected for
tuberculosis. Not be long until
all of us will have to pass an ex-
amination before we will be allow-
ed on the public highways—but
we are not kiexing on the cow
Boys who smoke cigarettes are
like wormy apples. They drop be-
fore the harvest time,if not physic-
ally then mentally. They rarely
make failures in after life because
they don't have any after life.
The boy who begins smoking be-
fore his fifteenth year never rea-
ches the life of the world. — Am-
If there is any practical way to
fight the chinch bugs, surely the
farmers are now ready and willing
to join hands in such a fight. If
they don't they might as well quit
trying to raise good crops of any-

A frog propels himself foward
by kicking back, but no man ever
gets forward very fast or very far
who is always wasting his time and
energy kicking back at his enemies
and traducers.—Alva Pioneer.
A local exchange says that an
insurance agent from the north-
west part of the state, and in spite
of the fact that small grain was
needing rain badly and prospects
were poor, succeded in selling a
nice bunch of life insurance. An-
other item in the high cost of liv-
ing, and another proof that a suck-
er is born for every second. In
this time of drouth people should
prepare for prosperity, and vice
versa, in time of prosperity, pre-
pare for a drouth. But probably
crop conditions in that part of the
state fully justified the taking out
of life insurance. Too much blue
sky is disastrous on both crops
and peoples' pocket books.
Anna Carlson of the Linsburg
News, is not strong for the slash-
ed tube skirt. Here's the way
Anna expresses her feelings on
the matter, or the skirt. "No
woman who wears one of these
new fangled tube skirts with a
slit up the front has any just
cause for complaint if some man
insults her. She is inviting insult
by wearing indecent clothes.
Wall Street has loaned the Mex-
ican government $100,000,000.
Not on the government's credit
however. Wall Street is after
the railroads of Mexico and before
they got the cale, Huerta had to
give a mortgage on the great nat-
ional railways system. In words
that we might speak later, Wall
Street has purchased the railroads
of Mexico. — Mt. Park Herald.

W. J. Bryan told a bunch of capi-
talists who are said to represent
$250,000,000 of American money
invested in Mexico, and who call-
ed on him last week to induce this

Free labor has the inspiration
of hope, pure slavery has no hope.
The power of hope on human ex-
ertion and happiness is wonderful.
The slave master himself has a
conception of it, and hence the
system of tasks among slaves.
The slave whom you can not drive
with the lash to break seventy-
five pounds in a day, if you will
task him to break a hundred, and
promise him pay for all he does
over, he will break you a hun-
dred and fifty. You have substi-
tuted hope for the rod. And yet
occur to you that to to the extent
of your gain in the case, you have
given us the slave system and ad-
opted the free system of labor. —
