More and Better Cattle
We want better cattle and

would cost from fifty to one

do service for many years.
It would he a good get-ac-

to buy the bull and place him
with some representative farmer
with the understanding that hisi
services should be free to all.
This would place every farmer,
not under obligations to the
bank, but in touch with it.
They would desire to become
better acquainted with (he hank

When the farmer saw the con-
trast between the calf gotten by
the good registered bull and one
of the common grades he would
understand that the banker was
a public benefactor and would
give his business to that bank.

Cultivate Vacant Lots
Ringling's Big Circus
Official information confirms
the announcement that on Mon
day, Oct. 25, Ringling Brothers'
circus will give two perform-
ances in Shawnee.
Many new fnatures have been
added this year, the most not-
able of which is the spectacle
"Solomon and the Queen of
Sheba." This colossal produc-
tion is presented with a cast of
1,250 people, a ballet of 300
dancing girls, 735 horses, and a
tra nload of scenery, costumes
and properties on the biggest
stage in the world.
Following the spectacle, a
circus program of unusual bril-
liancy will be presented, includ-
ing an array of fr.reign and
American acts new to the circus
world. The menagerie contains
1,003 wild animals, 41 elephants,
and a ''baby zoo," The circus
is transported on 89 double
length cars. Special arrange-
ments have been made by the
railroads to accommodate the
people that will visit the circus
from this town and the sur-
rounding country. .

McAlester, Okla.,Oct. (5<— The
City Commissioner, of McAles-
ter have started an innovation,
and are going into the farming
and truck garden business.
Commissioner F. D. Pittinan
staled today that he was going
to lea:f all of the vacant lots
located within the city limits
that were tillable, for a period
of one year. The lots are to be
leased to any one that will work
the ground and plant either al-
falfa or garden truck of any
kind, the tenant to have all that
he can make. Mr. Pittman
stated that several subleases had
already been signed and seveial
more leases expected to be sign-
ed in the near future.
McAlester has an acreage
neaily as large as St. Louis, and
it is expected to have all of the
vacant ground put to good use
and making something else be
bides weeds.
Home Neglect
A little home neglect has such
far reaching consequences. The
boy with the mother who fondly
"picks up" after him and waits
on him from childhood to youth,
is spoiling some other woman's
husband. The girl not trained
by her mother in the many im-
portant details of home manage-
ment, will some day liecoine
some man's wife, and what a
wife she will be in these times
of struggle to make income
equal outgo and provide for
emergencies. The boy trained
to observe no order will be as
disorderly and careless in busi-
ness as in home life. The girl
who slumps through girlhood
will become the slatternly
woman. So are life's failures
Smith Again at Helm
Oklahoma City, Oct. 4.—Sec-
retary George A. Smith of the
school land department, who
also owns the Chandler Tribune,
his home town, will again as-
sume charge of the paper. Mr.
Smith will remain in the school
land office, however, and will be
assisted in the management of
his paper by his wife. J. E.
Barker, wno has been foreman
of the shop, will assist Mrs.
Smith. Secretary Smitb, when
coming into the school land of-
fice a year ago, leased the paper
to others, but finally decided
that, he would assume control.
The Tribune is considered one
of the best newspaper properties
in the state.

President Leads Prayer
Indianapolis, Oct. 2.—How
President Wilson led his cabinet
in prayer at a recent meeting
was told here by Bishop William
F. Anderson of Cincinnati at a
session of the Indiana Methodist
Episcopal conference. A United
States senator told the bishop of
the incident, he said Saturday.
The senator bad heard it from a
cabinet member.
"When the president arrived
at the cabinet meeting," said
Bishop Anderson. "It was evi-
dent that the serious affairs of
the nation were on his mind.
Ho said to the cabinet member,
'1 don't know whether you men
believe in prayer or not. I do.
Let us ask the help of God.'
"And right there the president
of the United States fell upon
his knees and the rest of the cab
inet did the same and the presi-
dent offered a prayer to God.
While the war rages in Europe,
we in this country should thank
< iod that in this crisis we have a
chief executive who is a servant
of God."
A telegram expressing the
confidence of the delegates in
him was sent to the president.
