Geary needs more sidewalks. We

The weather, owing to the ground-
hog taking a squint at his shadow on
the 2nd day of this month, has been
very disagreeable for the past week
but we suppose it will have to be thus
for six weeks.
It would help matters a whole lot if
the city council would have a few
street lamps put upon business streets
around town. The cost would be very
nominal compared with the conven-
iences and looks of the town.
There are 12,980 Indians in Oklaho-
ma, divided as follows: Iowa 89: Tonk-
awas 58: Apaches 172; Raws 213: Kick-

The sentiment in Geary at present
is strongly in favor of a good water-
works system, and when the matter is
properly brought up for the citizens of
tlie town to decide whether we shall
have the system put in or not the
proposition will carry ten to one. Let
An exchange says whenever you find
a man finding fault with a local news-
paper, open it up and ten to one he
hasn’t an advertisement in it; five to
one he never gave it a job of work:
three to one he does not take a paper;
two to one if he is a subscriber he is
delinquent; even odds he never does
anything to assist the publisher to
run a good paper, and forty to one if
the paper is a goocj one full of life, he
is the most eager to see the paper
when it comes out.
There has been a great and just
howl raised by the people in the south-
west part of town over the odorous
smell of the dump pile of manure and
dead animals in the southwest corner
of Geary, just outside the city limits.
It has become so rank that people
coming to town, travel some other
road rather than hold their breath
while passing. Sometimes it catches
fire then the rosy scented smoke is
borne by the ever gentle Oklahoma
breeze down over the city. Then the
angry citizen grabs his probosis and
roasts the city officials. The council
is not to blame, how’ever, as it is out
of their jurisdiction. They are going
to endeavor to remedy the matter by
appealing to the county board of
health and then buy a city dumpsome-
where further away.
