Easy to Defy Evil Spirits
The Chinese believe that evil spir-
its are able to move only in straight
lines and that they cannot penetrate
through polid matter, therefore the
problem of keeping them out of a
dwelling or a garden seems to them
a simple matter.

right, under the Hay-l'auncefote
treaty to pass Its own coastwise ves-

Opening the light over the Panama
canal bill sent to the senate by the
house, In which the free provision Is
an important feature, Senators Bur-

outlined the ground upon which en-

in the principles of the republican
party, and has always been a loyal
v Oritur for till laoom of the party
in season and out. He Is successful
as a business man, conservative in
the conduct of business, and will give
to the office, if elected thereto, the
same careful and economic adminis-

affairs. He promises this, and we
have yet to learn of his falling to

I surrendered important rights In Pan-
Iama and had stood for the equal treat-

the question of whether the United
States meant to include vessels owend

Senator Root unreservedly declared
The Hague court could be called upon
to settle the issue Anally, if the Unit-
ed States passed the bill with the
free provision, which he characterized
as "unjustifiable discrimination"
against other nations.

Judge J..B. A. Robertson of Chand-
ler, candidate for Congressman at
Large, subject to the democratic pri-
mary,-Is essentially a self made man.
He has resided in Lincoln county for
more than twenty years, and has
taken an active part In the develop-
ment of the new state. As farmer,
laboring man, school teacher, lawyer
and judge, he has learned the needs
of these people and Is naturally in
full sympathy with their demands.
In the Tenth Judicial District, where |
he has served as County Attorney,
and District Judge, he gained an en-
viable reputation as a friend of the
taxpayer and as a fearless and edter-
mined law enforcer. He is a progres-
sive democrat In all that the name Im-
plies; nor is he a recent convert to
the political Ideas that are now so
popular. He Is a pioneer along re-
form lines, yet has always been a con-
sistent and aggressive democrat. His
knowledge of conditions, not only In
Oklahoma, but throughout the nation,
is of such a character as to render
him preeminently qualified for the
position of congressman. He is count-
ed everywhere as one of the three
winners, and his standing and char-
acter are such as will render him one
of the storngest men on the ticket In
the general election and of great
help, Instead of hindrance, to the
party in the great contest next No-
vember. Count him as one of the
three winners. Ask your neighbor
about him. He courts the fullest in-
vestigation. Marshall County News-

COURT HOUSE BUNCH IS
A1 J. Jennings is making a most
vigorous flght against official embez-
zlement and public abuses that has
ever been waged in the history of this
county. He is the only man that has
ever had the nerve to come out open-
ly and flght the court house gang and
the corrupt politicians. The people
have been fooled by the politicians
and public servants for so long that
these hyenas who have broke faith
with the people are receiving but very
little consideartion, and it is gener-
ally conceded that A1 J. Jennings will
receive the nomination for county at-
torney by a very large majority. It
is not what Mr. Jennings has been
that so much concerns th epeople but
what he is now and will be in the fu-
ture. He has been honest enough to
tell the whole truth, and he has al-
ways had the reputation of being true
to every trust that has ever been im-
posed in him and it can be depended
upon that he will make good —Politi-

I take this opportunity to announce as

District Court of Oklahoma county, sub-
ject to the democratic primary to be held
August *:th, 1012. At the present time I
am holding this office by reason of the
appointment by the board of county
commissioners of this county and have
been holding it since last October. Owing
to the fact that 1 am holding this office
and It requires my personal attention
and supervision almost constantly dur-
ing the business hours I will bo un-
able to make the personal campaign
that I would like to make. I would
like to meet every democrat in this
county, personally, and enlist his sup-
why I should have your support for
this nomination. I realize that there
are mtfny voters In Oklahoma county,
that I do not know, and I am sure that
they have no way of knowing me. I
can only tell you who I am and leave
the rest to my friends and acquain-
I va* born in Bolivar. Polk county,
Missouri, February 'J8, 1881. I moved
from Bolivar to Petersburg, Illinois, the
old home of Abraham Llnooln, in 1885,
and spent the most of my life on a farm
near that place. I spent three years in an
Illinois school where William Jennings
Bryan learned the art of public speak-
ing, later graduating from the Uni-
versity College of Law at Des Moines,
Iowa, In June, 1905, ami have been .
gaged in the practice of law «••• r so.
until the 12th day of October, lJll, when
I was appointed clerk of tl.o diairul
court of Oklahoma county.
When you have a suit In the courts
of this county you hire the best lawyer
you can find to do the work for you; 1
there is one part of the law suit that he
does not attend to and that is the mak-
ing up and keeping of the records of the
court that are on file in the clerk's office.
That is the job I am asking for and if,
by your vote, you decide to Intrust that
matter to me, you will never regret it.
I believe that honesty will be one of the
characteristics that the voters of this
county will look for this year In the se-
lection "f their candidates and their offi-
cers. That is the one thing that the
voter will have to figure out for him-
self, guided, of course, by the reputation
that the candidate may have and what
his friends know him to be.
I hope that your investigation of my,
record, short as it may have been as a
public official, will come up to your
standard that you expect of a public of-
ficial for honesty and Integrity, and I
solicit your support and your help In
this campaign, promising you that I will
return the favor, if possible, and do my
best to be your faithful servant.

A WORD TO YOU, MR. VOTER:
I am a property owner, and have been actively engaged in the Real
Estate business In Oklahoma City for nearly Jive years. I have become
acquainted with values in all parts of the City and County. My experience
has equipped me to perform the duties of the Assessor's office in a capable
manner. If I have the honor of the nomination and am elected, 1 will conduct
the affairs of this office so that credit will be reflected upon the Democratic
party and the judgment of men who elect me.
If I am elected, the assessors of each Township will be men who are not
only residents of the neighborhood in which they assess, but they must be
men whose experience has equipped them to assess values with good judgment
Satisfy yourself as to who and what I am and my qualifications for the
office and I am satisfied that I will receive your support.

Pruning tomatoes is not generally
practiced, but there are certain ad-
vantages in pruning which will justify
the labor. Plants pruned to a single
stem will mature the fruit earlier,
produce larger fruit, the fruit Is less
liable to rot, especially when properly
staked and tied, and cultivation may
be continued later in the season,
which is especially advantageous dur-
Pruning should begin as soon as
the plant begins to branch. These
branches start in the axils of the
leaves, and may be easily pulled off
with the fingers while young. If not
done early, it will be necessary to
cut them off, which if not carefully
done may result in the main stem be-
ing cut. Again, should pruning be
delayed, the nourishment which goes
into the branches on account of de-
lay in pruning will be lost.
For the earliest fruit keep all
branches pruned off, leaving only the
main stem. It will be necessary to
go over the plants two or three times
in order to train them to a single
A stake should be driven up by
each plant for a support. In tying,
use a soft string which wll not cut the
plant. First, tie the string firmly
around the stake and then loosely
around the plant. Subsequent strings
should be added as the plant grows.
Such plants will require two or three (
strings, depending upon the height.— j

"Do you think it practical to mix
light brown brahmas with leghorns
to make larger chickens?'—Mrs. J. H.<
B., Jefferson County, Oklahoma.
I do not think that is advisable to !
mix any two breeds of chickens The
reason is simply that you cannot de-
pend upon the cross-breeding being
ver ytrue. You have many colored
chickens, off sized, under sized and
I do not believe that you will get as |
good results as you would by breed-
| ing a medium breed. I think that you
I have the right idea that the leghorn
is too small and the bramas too large.
My criticism of the leghorns are that
they are too small a breed for the
average market, but they are excel-
lent layers. The best all-round breeds
for Oklahoma, I think, is one of the
following: Plymouth Rocks, Rhode
Island Reds, Wyandottes, Langshans
and Orpingtons. It costs so little to
get started to raising one of these
pure breeds that it hardly pays to
cross the light brahmas and the leg-
horns to get a middle sized breed.—

PRIMARIES. AUGUST 6 1912.
The most important office to the
taxpayers of Oklahoma County is the
County Attorneys office. The law
makes it his duty not only to pros-
ecute persons charged with the Viola-
tion of the criminal laws of the State,
but to advise and counsel all the other
county officers in all civil matters re-
lating to the discharge of their respec-
tive duties. If I am nominated and
elected County Attorney, I shall give
my undivided personal attention, my
whole time and my best efforts to the
faithful and impartial discharge of all
those duties. I shall appoint no more
deputies and assistants than are abso-
lutely necessary for efficient service,
and I shall require them to give their
whole time to the duties imposed upon
them by law. I have no enemies that
I want to punish and no friends to
reward by any neglect of duty. If you
believe that I can and will serve you
best, I'll appreciate your support.
