It is a great tribute and the last
one to be paid our dear departed
ones, to see that their graves are
kept clean, and that the little
mound doesn't wash away or sink.
We should set aside one or more
days out of each year to go and
beautify tin grave-yard. Remem-
ber it won't take long or much
work to keep them in good shape,
and it is the last resting place of
our friends, relatives and others,
who have at one time lived in this
world, just the same as we. We
certainly should mark them fitting-

From the Democratic State
(luthrie, Okla.. June 30.—With-
out hope of success in the coming
State election the republican party
will go into the fight without a lead-
er as no republican could be found
to oppose Chief Justice II. I., \Vil-_
lianis for re-election. Besides the
head of tiie State ticket, the posi-
tion as congressman of the 5th Dis-
trict is also allowed to go by de-
fault through the unwillingness of
any republican to oppose Scott Fer-
ln the 4th Congressional District
the names of two republicans have
been tiled with the election board
for the nomination but is solely from
the hope of controlling federal pat-
ronage that they get into the race
and not through any expectation of
overcoming Charlie Carter's stand-
ing majority of fifteen thousand.
The candidates for State ollices,
United States Senators and Con-
gressmen as they will appear on the
primary ballot are as follows:
S. \V. Hayes, Democrat.
I!. I.. Williams, Democrat.
A. W. Bennett, Socialist.
Jas. T. Dickerson. Republican.
W. II. Reynolds, Republican.
C. B. Douglas, Republican.
O. A. Mitcher. Republican.
Thomas P. Smith, Democrat.
A. P. Watson, Democrat.
Roy O'Brian, Socialist.
