You have no doubt often won-
dered at the comfort old persons
take in visiting the cemeteries
and remaining for hours, saunter-
ing among the marble slabs and
reading the inscriptions. After
one has passed fifty they usually
have more friends and acquaint-
ances in the cemeteries than they
have among the living. This is
not a reflection on the living, nor
on those who have passed the
half century mark, it is just an
unfortunate fa<5t that we all come
to realize when the winters of
time put the gray streaks into
our temples. — Harry Mills.

This matter of newspaper sub-
scriptions reminds me of the
Greek philosopher whose poverty
began to pinch him. One of his
friends sent word to the men of
the city that each should take a
certain kind of wine and on a cer-
tain day go to the philosopher s
house and pour the wine into an
empty vat. And so they did but
each thought that one bottle of
water would not be noticed in so
much wine, and the vat was filled
with water. Thus the philosoph-
er received no aid. It is some-
what that way with subscriptions.
One fellow thinks he owes only a
small amount and so neglects to
pay it. The other fellow thinks
the same and the editor fares al-
most as well as the philosopher.

Ursel Finch, of the Jet Visitor,
has been sued for $10,000 libel
by a mutual insurance company
with headquarters at Oklahoma
City. The papers were served
on him at Oklahoma City while
he was attending the state fair.
Ursel s^ys he fears that should
the company secure judgment
and collect the money it will run
him so short of change that he
will be unable to attend the fair
next year. It seems that the
company had refused to satisfy
some losses near Jet and the Vis-
itor reported the cases, to which
the insurance company obje6ted
and claims it has been injured in
the !?um of $10,000. — Wakita
