For some years past Oklahoma
and Kansas have |lieen lutempting
to t:ike care of the pressure at dif-
ferent seasons of the year fur Held
labor, large quantities of which is
in special demandlduring the har-
vest season that begins Hi the
southern part of Oklahoma in May
and closes in the northern part of
the country the last of July and
August. This year the state de-
partment of labor handled double
the usual number of harvest hands
and with one exception at Enid,
where matters got slightly balled
us, they were handled without
friction or trouble and the furmers
in that section of the state where
harvest help was needed express
themselves as highly pleased not
only with the promptness of the
service given by the state depart-
ment of labor, but with the high
class of labor furnished. It is no
small matter to handle an army of
thirty or forty thousand itinerant
laborers, men who come from
everywhere and have no definite
idea of where they are going, and
without the aid rendered by the
state department of labor, through
its employment bureaus, the state
would not only suffer a shortage of
labor in communities where needed
but would be over-run with unem-
ployed in other sections where their
services could not I « profitably em-
ployed.
CARD OF THANKS
We wish to thank our many
friends for the kindness shown us
during the sickness and death of
our little son.

George Merritt drove to Oklaho-

market for their wares.
James Corbett returned to Nor-
man. Monday, after a fifteen days
vacation and is again "on the job"
in the county treasurer's oflice. Be-
fore leaving he paid us that always
welcome visit and moved his sub-
scription mark up to the 1916

man was here Monday on business.

Miss Philman Martell, who have
been here the past week at the bed-
side of their brother. Peter Martell,
left Wednesday for their home in
Lincoln, Nebraska.

Here is a good joke on an editor
who went one evening to report a
party at ii home which was recently
blessed with a new baby, tells the
Tipton Times. He met his hostess
at the door, and after the usual sal-
tations he asked after the baby's
health. The lady who was quite
deaf, and suffering with the grippe,
thought he was asking after her
cold, and answeree that although
she usually had one every winter,
this was the worst one she had ever
had; it kept her awake at night a
good deal and at Hrst confined her
to her bed. Then noticing that the
newspaperman had a peculiar look
in his face and seemed to be getting
nervous, she said she could tell by
his looks that he was going to have
one just like hers, and asked frim
to go in and sit down.— Norman
