Lots of Onions
One of the strongest pieces of
business secured by the Traffic
Department of the Frisco is mov-
ing over the line from Sacra-
mento, Calif, to St. Louie. It
consists of three train loads of
onions, each train made up of
sixteen cars loaded with the
fruit and shipped by the Wood
Crutis Ccmpany of Sacramento.
These trains are moviDg under
special service and the contents
are consigned to St. Louis and
Eastern markets. The fruit
train left Sacramento October
\fter the onions have passed
over the line, it is expected that
about GO cars of beans will be
sent as a follow up.
A Thought for
Every Young Person
Anyone who saw the excellent
bookkeeping, shorthand, type-
writing and penmanship work
exhibited at the Oklahoma State
Fair gives full credit to the Capi-
tal City Business College of
Guthrie. Its exhibits, without
question, surpassed anything in
the hue of Business College
work. The C. C. B. C. has ex-
hibited its students' work at
several rairs and won first honor
at each one.
For the very hest in Business
College work in the least pos-
sible time, at the least possible
cost, attend no other than the
C. C. B. C.

There is a quality in the air
that comes only with autumn, a
sharp coolness with the sunset, a
crisp, frosty flavor at sunrise.
At night the stars shine more
brightly from a sky of luminous
purple. There is comfort in
blankets, a new quality of sound-
ness in sleep.
Against the pale blue of tbe
sky the trees are contracting an
increasing variety of color. The
green of the leaves is darker and
dashed with pale yellow, ruddy
gold, crimson and the deep red
of the swamp growths. There
is a pungent smell of bonfires in
West of the village the flat
reaches of the slough are tawny

but green still marks the boun-
daries of field and pasture A
pool of water catches a sudden
blue from above; yellow hay-
stacks rise abruptly from the
marsh land, there is a soft haze
which dims the horizon.
Fragrant spicy odors of drying
grass and leaves and moist earth
are on the breeze. There is a
noisy chatter of birds gathering
for their long flight. In a few
weeks I shall hear the wild
geese calling through the night
as they fly low in from the lake.
In a cloudless sky the sun sets
abruptly in a flame of gold; the
yellow afterglow fades from the
deepening blue, a suddeu chill
rises from the marshland and
the mist creeps out from the
darkening trees. With my feet
ringing on the bard road I walk
home to dinner and a book he-
fore an open fire of fragrant
