A baby's feet shows the unmistak-
able descent of man from a primitive
creature living in trees. Its feet are
turned inward, the holes being pressed
together in a state of rest exactly as
tree-dwelling anthropoids place them
when resting. The new-born infant
has legs shorter in proportion to its
body length than has an adult man,
exactly as the monkey has legs short-
er than man.

"A wise man may change his opin-
"Yes," replied Senator Sorghum;

At the sale of Osage oil leases on
34,000 acres of land, the total realized
was $1,305,100, which is something
like $330,000 less than was realized
at the sale in November. Not all of
the tracts were sold. The sale was
conspicious for the fact that the Prair-
ie Oil and Gas Company for the first
time did not bid on a single tract.
The biggest price paid was $227,500
for 160 acres in section 26-24-8.
H. O. Hays, a member of the Chick-
asha city council, engaged in a fist
fight on the streets with P. S. Busch,
a Grady county farmer, because Busch
cur~,ed the American government and
President Wilson. Both men were
well battered, but Hays won. As a
result of the charges against Busch,
the farmer was arrested by federal
officers immediately after the fight
and held under $10,000 bond on com-
plaint charging seditious utterances
Vernon Keith, a farmer boy who
liv63 three miles west of Chickasha
is organizing the farmers of Grady
county on a plan of his own origin,
that if successful will put a "war
acre" on every farm in the county.
Keith's plan is for every farmer in
the county to set aside at least one
acre of his farm, to plant thereon
whatever crop he may choose, to give
it an especially good tending and
when the crop is sold, to invest the
entire proceeds In war savings

Voters of Muskogee voted $100,000 ol
bonds for improvements at the Okla-

Fire, supposed to have started from
spontaneous combustion in a pile of
slack coal in the basement, completely
destroyed the Jet public school build-
ig Sunday, entailing a loss of $17,000.
Eight days of fighting on the French
front with a Canadian regiment sent
William McLish of Claypool to the
hospital with a wound in his side that
incapacitated him f"r further service

The fire at Soper which destroyed
nine buildings in the business section
of the town, February 15, entailing a
loss of $75,000, was of incendiary or-
igin. Dana Meyer, 20 years old, has
confessed to county officers, describ-
ing the manner in which the fire was
set and implicating another young
man of Soper.
An avalanche of telegrams that fair-
ly swamped the state headquarters of
the National War Savings committee
told of the wonderful progress being
made throughout Oklahoma in the
sale of Thrift and War Savings
stamps. The messages contained Ok-
lahoma's answer to the kaiser. They
indicate a united front and the unan-
imity of the response by the people
in all walks of life, surpass even the
fondest dreams of the wildest enthu-
siast. Two hundred thousand war
savers enlisted already, is the esti-
mate of those in charge.
