Subject to the Democratic Primary
August 1 1922.
j could possibly be extracted from the
rock like surface of mother earth,
even by the most devoted of mothers.
Also to be seen is an old horse
' standing hitched to the rear wheel of
I a wagon, switching his tail, and oc-
I cassionally wiggling his ears to
1 keep away the persistent and ever
' nagging fly- His (the horse) entire
attitude is one of utter (!J jection.
The shade in which his master has
tied him i8 nil, and his flanks are
sunken and his discomfort is great. If
we could read his mind, no doubt he
is made doubly sad hy remembering
other days and better days, when
his master would have found a sha-
dy spot for him and would have giv-
en him clear fresh sparking water
to guench his thirst.
j The men who can be heard from a
short distance art talking politics,
1 and if you would or could be guided
| by their superior judgment in the
| affairs of state, the powers that be,
would in national and international
affairs guide the ship of state
smoothly out on the peaceful waters
of a calm and sure tide to be trou-
bled no more with th;- restlessness ar.d
uncertainty of the present regime.
Having disposed of tht hen, the
horse and the men who are talking
politics, we see across the street, one
of man's most faithful friends, who
will guard with his life if needs be,
hig master's property. In this case
it is an ugly black and white dog, of
ungainly appearance. By the dog's
attitude you feel that his dog heart
is all white, and he will await the
coming of his master, without food
or water until the master's return.
If we were to select a boy or a
dog t0 take to our hearts or home
we would take the very ugliest ones
of each kind we could find. The boy
We place first because he is a boy.
There is something so apealing about
a down right ugly boy which goes
straight to the heart. We always
feel and almost know that boy is not
altogether happy and the reason is
| We repeat we like the ugly boy with
his freckles ar>d his awkwardness,
for he will nine times out of ten
make a man of which one could be
justly proud. Such a boy starts out
in life with no false notions, about
' "getting by" on his good looks, for
he knows that to be ugly of face, and
a failure, is beyond any chance of
; happiness in this old world of ours.
For the same reason we like the ugly
boy we like the ugly dog.
] Yes, this is certainly quiet, an
hour to take for your own satisfac-
tion, to rest from weariness, to
think. As we write the rustling
i leaves on the giant cottonwoods which
stand on the banks of Choteau, claim
1 our atention, and we notice the sky
is somewhat overcast blending into
darker gray as it appears near the
horion, which presages a shower
within the near future
| Tennyson says,"All things have
rest save man alone." We believe at
1 this hour even man has rest here in
I Lexington, and the cares which us-
ually infest the day, have folded their
\ sharp edges and have silently slipped
away, for all is serene for the time

The Unusual Attracts
If you would gain attention to j
yourself or your business attract at-
tention t0 one or both by some un- ,
usual method. Change things, make
them different from usual. Last;
week we rubbed Bon Ami on our win-
dows for the purpose of |cVeaning
them (which act in itself would
have attarcted some attention) and
finding the softened light which the
paste reflect;d so agreeable to the
eyesight left the paste on for the
purpose enumerated. We will state
that nearly tvery child that passed
asked why we left the paste on, and
nearly every man or wort an who
passed looked in as they passed by.
Advertisers profit by these remarks
The I. O. 0. F and Rebecca
lodges held a convention at Sulphur
this week. Mr. and Mrs. Jim McEwen
and Mrs. and Mrs. Mathews were in
attendance for a day or two.
The Quiet of An
After the stress and worry of the
last few daye the streets present to-
day the "deserted village" aspect,
and we wonder why everything is so
still and quiet, an unusual condition
in this little town of ours. A few
cars are parked in the center of the
street, but their owners are not to
be seen. A few persons are moving
about, anil a group of men sitting
idle, constitute the only life to be
It is quiet and very restful, and the
peacefulness has' a charm ail its own.
Across the stieet there 'is hen fol-
lowed by a few down hearted little
tfcicks, ftl\ grabbing at the sup-
posed worm w'rtn which they think
their little crops wiJL soon* be pos-
sessed of, but alas the baked ground
is evidence enough th At no 'worm
