JUST WHAT YOU WANTED.

You demanded work for your idle

You wanted to see the army of
tramps mustered out.
They are gone.
You wanted your soup houses closed.
They are closed.
You wanted to get rid of the receiv-
ers of your railways and banks.
They are gone.
You wanted to seethe smoke com-
ing from the stacks of your smelters,
mills and factories.
It came. Many have since been
kicking about the smoke nuisance.
You wanted the savings bank de-
posits to increase.
Never so large in you history as at

so low as now.

marvelous rapidity for six years.
You demanded that one dollar be
just as good as another.
You got it. That is the kind we

DILLON OIL INSPECTOR.
Gov. Ferguson has appointed .John
II. Dillon of this city coal oil inspec-
tor for the territory. This appoint-
ment is a good one, as Mr. Dillon is
a business man in every sense of the
word and the duties Incumbent upon
that position will be handled in a
creditable manner. But the niceest
tiling about the appointment is that
Mr. Dillon can attend to the inspec-
torship and still remain a citizen of
Geary. The governor, up to this
time, has not made a single mistake
in an appoinment, and the more
Blaine county men he appoints the
less liklihood the*& will be of mis-
NEED A NEW ONE.
About the gloomiest sight we have
seen lately was the C. O. & G. waiting
room at the depot. ' We were down
there the other evening, and were
deeply impressed (perhaps depressed
would better express it) with the gen-
eral discomfort of the surroundings.
A room of medium size, a lamp in one
corner vainly striving to penetrate the
tobacco smoke, emitted from villain-
ous cigars aud able bodied pipes in the
mouths of tramps and negroes, a
number of respectable citizens, with a
sprinkling of delicate women and lit-
tle children, made a conglomeration
anything but agreeable, and one which
reflected anything but credit upon the
C. O. & G. management. A ladies’
waiting room would be the proper
thing, but in case the company do not
feel able to furnish a special room for
the ladies, then the next best thing to
do would be to issue a stringent order
against smoking in the general wait-
ing room, which could be enforced by
the agent with little trouble, and we
believe he would gladly undertake to
carry out the order. As it is, the con
dition at the C. O. &. 9. depot is a
disgusting commentary on our boasted

The Geary postofflee has become a
presidential office during the month
of January. Postmaster I)eam was
reappointed by the president the last
week in January and confirmed by the
senate Feb. 10th. It is a salaried
office of $1,400 a year with $150 ad-
ditional allowed for clerk hire.
A couple of lightweight train rob-
bers undertook to hold up the east
bound Choctaw passenger near the
water tank at Bridgeport, Friday
night. After the engine had taken
water at the tank and started up it
was flagged and as the train came to
a stop two men wearing masks started
to climb onto the engine telling the
engineer at the same time to elevate
his hands. But they soon discovered
to their surprise, that they had
tackled the wrong man, for instead of
obeying their request he grabbed a
pick and proceeded to bat the nearest
one over the caraneum. As soon as
they found out the engineer was
averse to being held up they took to
the woods, and at this date are still
there. The hold up might have been
successful if he had not been a man of
nerve and they green hands at the

sallied forth last Sunday in quest of
more victories. The number had
swelled since last hunt,and when they
left town they resembled a band of
Turkish brigands. They all carried
guns this time, thinking, perchance,
a coyote might attack them or a real
frisky jack run over them. T. J. Bal-
lew, Chas. Marvin and Will Owen
were the officers in command.and they

IT’S WHAT YOU SAVE, NOT WHAT YOU HAKE. f
The real way to save is not to put off buying the necessities of life until absolutely forced
to buy, but to take advantage of opportunities and buy those things that you will abso-
