had grown to fifty. Among its
members are many prominent busi.

the effect on any one having
everything to do with them is
the same. The blind tiger and
the blind pig make theii ad-
mirers feel blind and look
blind and act blind. Their
magic destroys art, blurs

and demoralizes nature.
In fact when a full grown
man gets mixed up with a

both pigeri/.ed and tigerized.

both fall into the ditch.

TOE CITY VERSUS
The farmer often gets the worst
of it. This iu -1 '(e f t the fnot that
grain and stock are the most profit-
able kind of property, -lost now the
crops are badly iu need ot rain and
the farmer feels blue. But it will
rain some day, we have lived jn Ok-
lahoma for some time and will not
say what day, but some day. The
farmers boy sees the rush of the oil
field and it truly is great. But good
farming is now the best business out
of doors. All other kinds of business
in Tulsa county are far in advance
of farming. The difficulties that the
farmer has here have been overcome
largely in other states. One cause of
discouragement is the custom of
carrying accounts. The farmer can
never do himself justice as long as
he is six months or a year iu debt.
Farming less aud doing it better
would help cut expenses nnd raise
a better rate of income.
The farmers should have Stock
Growers, Fruit Growers, and Truck
Growers Associations. These bodies
should be represented in the Com-
meicial Club and secure from them
the attention tecessary to bring the
agricultural interest iu line with the
oth?r Commercial life of this county.

will do their duty.
NOTES ON OUR
Mr. Chief Newblock hns made an
able fight for law enforcement. He
has the syndicate of crime and the
county against him. This is a sore
disapoiutmeut for all the good citi-
zens who voted for Sheriff McCul-
lough. It is spokeu of with regret
by liis friends all over the country.
The defense that the county is put-
ting i p in iudefensablc. Thcv are
hundreds of cases of known law vio-
lation. Crimes, open, persistent, re.
peated and in many cases insolent,
and the county stands back and
makes a technical or clerical defense.
When a crime is committed it is al-
ready up to the state. That is what
the citizen pays taxes for and an offi-
cer is not paid a salary to look on or
wait but to do something. A chicken
thief receives more official attentiou
than the worst law violaters of Tulsa
county. One half day of council aud
on the part of the county officials
with the city would give us the ban-
ner city aud county of Oklahoma.
The patience of the law abiding peo-
ple is nigh to aud end. With joints
and red lights springing up all round

leggers blocks and while making

the law breaker had a friend at court.
