ALTHOUGH there lias been considerable opposition to many
of Governor Williams' acts there has been but few critics to find fault
with the abolishment of the sub-agricultural schools at Warner and
Claremore and the School of Mines at Wilburton. If the people of
Oklahoma are to be taxed for educational purposes let the money be
spent to provide a few really good schools. There are yet too many
secondary schools and most of them should be abolished also. The
governing bodies that providedOklahoma with a score of schools were not
looking so much to the educational advantages of the state as they were
to paying political debts. The University, A. M. & M. College and two
af the leading Normals are all that are really needed and what money
is expended should be appropriated to place these schools on the highest
THAT the Republican State Convention needs a revised mailing
(ist is shown by the fact that the Lexington postmaster, who is a Democrat
received a letter soliciting funds with which the Republicans hope to

in 1918. We hereby volunteer to give the Republicans all the publicity
they have coming to them next year. Come to Lexington.

WINTER PLOWING IS FAVORED
Army Woime, Cut Worms, Crawhop-
pers and Other Injurious Insects
Exposed to Elements.
There are a Dumber of advantage*
In fall and winter plowing. The do-
struction of insects is not the least of
them. Army worms, cut worms, Hes-
sian fly, grasshoppers and other very
injurious Insects live over the winter
in the ground and by full plowing or
disking, these Insects are exposed to
the freezing weather and killed, or
they are crushed and disturbed In
their winter sleep so that they perish.
Old stubble fields should always b«
plowed during the fall or winter If the
land Is so situated as not to wash.

"Where People Save Most" Lexington, Okla.
ONLY PURE BRED POULTRY WILL PAY A
Frames fitted and eyes tested,
modem equipment, satisfaction
guaranteed. Dr. C. E. Northcutt,
Lexington, Oklahoma, office over
Farmers State Guaranty Bank.
Authorities in every line contend that only pure bred individuals—
whether stock or poultry—can pav a profit above their keep. Experi-
ments by the goverment and by experiment stations have proven beyond
a doubt that scrub poutlry is a burden and should be replaced with thor-
oughbred stock. In and around Lexington can be found some of the
best poultry to be obtained anywhere. It has been kept pure by the
various fanciers who have gone to considerable expense in securing new
blood and in building up their flock to a paying basis. If you are in
need of eggs, meat or show birds you can not do better than buy J:rom
home people. You will not only get choice birds and eggs but will get
them cheaper and will save express and avoid danger of damage enroute.
Below we have listed a number of breeders who we guarantee to give you
satisfaction for the price asked.
