It develops that the state lias
been paying for baths for Attor-
ney-General West when he is out
of the state on business. When
Bill Murray hears of this there
will be an explosion. A bath is
an extravagance Bill won't stand
for. — Medford Patriot.

million dollars' worth of preferr-

reach out after trade from the

If prohibition meant an end of
the evils of drinking we would
nearly all be prohioitionists. But
it doesn't. If the policy of no
saloons meant that the town
drunkards would be shut off from
their supply and no new drunk-
j they had the opportunity. _ _ _

Wisdom is not increased by a
crowd. It only takes a crowd to
lose its head and create a panic.
No crowd ever wrote a good book
or commanded an army in a great
and momentous conflict. Beware
of the crowd- It takcs a crowd
to create a riot. Mobs are made
up of crowds. It took a crowd to
crucify Christ. The most sense-
less thing in the world is an in-
furiated crowd. On the other
hand what is more sublime than
the concentrated force of a great
mind. How often are mobs dis-
persed, lynchings prevented, pan-
ics averted, riots quelled, and
armies saved from rout by the
cool, calm wisdom of a single
man. Just now if some fellow
with a mind like that will come
along and show us just what is
the best thing to do and who are
the best men to nominate for city
officers, to improve local condi-
tions in Cashion, he will find us
interested auditors. No two by
four unexperienced man will do.

When the tongue of trade is
coated, when the eyes and limbs
of the clerk are dull and languid,
when the raging fever tackles the
empty vitals of the till, when the
spider roosts in the empty cash
box, and boquets of decay are on
the chandelier, it is conclusive
that the advertising doctor has
not been consulted.
This is the latter part of Feb-
ruary and much has been done in
a farming way—ground has been
plowed, oats sown, and ground
prepared for gardening. The fruit
buds are very much retarded ow-
ing to the past cold weather and
this leaves a good assurance for a
crop. The blooms of fruit have
often come in latter part of Feb-
ruary and beginning of March,
but the blooms may not appear
for a month yet—thus deferring
the semi tropical character of the
country for this season.—Sulphur
It looks as tho the bill to pro-

dry states will become a law at

Another difference between the
home merchant and the mail order
house is that the mail order house
sees your money before you see
his goods, but with the home
merchant it often happens that
you see his goods a long time be-
fore he sees your money and in
some cases he never does see the
money for goods that out of the
goodness of his heart he has ac-
commodated somebody with.
Suggestions are already being
made with reference to the spring
election. Among these is one to
to draw the party lines. This
The Independent believes is a
mistake. Keep politics out of
our town ele6tions. We want the
best men available and it is a bad
policy for any small town to per-
mit politics to enter. We wrant
good men and true men to fill the
offices. Pick out the best men
whether they be old or young.
The presumption is that young
men will handle the situation, but
keep politics out.

The Poteau News talks out in

cannot be misundertood. says:
"Now, in regard to home print-
ing, that's up to you. The News
was here before any of you got
here, and will be here after many
of you are gone. But if you don't
see fit to patronize the News,

The great a6livity of everybody
in giving advice to the farmer
these days serves as a reminder
that one of the strongest traits in
human nature is the one which
leads to the conviction of every
man that he can pcrfe6tly fill the
other fellow's job. There a few
pursuits for which all men are
transcendently efficient, with the
exception of the one line they
happen to pursue. Nobody has
yet seen the man who does not
think he would be a most success-
ful farmer, editor, hotel man or
dete6tive. These are undoubted-
ly the four "cussedest" pursuits
in the world.—Tulsa Democrat.
He owned a handsome touring car,
To ride in it was heaven.
He ran across a piece of glass—
He took his friends out for a ride,

The carburetor sprang a leak,

The fiuest sort of fun,
He stopped too quick and stripped

"I'll put a mortgage on the house
And take just one more ride."
