formerly of Guthrie, and has made

years for over twelve years. This

The Irma Opera Co's, presen-
tation of "Miss America" Monday
night was fairly good. The
opera isn't epual to the company.
Miss Emma Abbot Lie Bold, the
leading lady, has a more than
ordinary voice and in a better
opera would catch the audience
with considerable bewitchment of
voice and person. The opera has
no theme and but one catchy
song and the audience wonders
what it is all about. It is under-
stood the company will return
later on in a better opera, when it
should have a crowded house.
The fourteenth annual conven-
tion of the Christian Church of
Guthrie will be held in Guthrie
September 11 to 14 at the Chris-

Gratiot county, Michigan, father
of Mrs, H. C. Olds, is visiting the
family. Mr. Wheeler is 80 years
old and settled in Michigan in '56.
He helped to make that country

whose influence is widely felt in
their communities.

oring department to the rear

New Cotton Compress
Guthrie's new cotton compress,
whieh is being built on a site of
an abandoned brick yard, im-
mediately east of the Santa Fe
roundhouse, will be ready in
time for this year's big cotton
crop. The building proper will
be wooden but the engine house
will be built of brick. The plat,
form will be 100 by 300 feet, sup-
ported by cedar posts.
Mr. Jas. W. Marshall is super-
intending the construction work
and has about forty men under
his direction.
The Santa Fe, Katy, and Frisco
railroads, the cotton belt lines of
Guthrie, will reach the platform
over their own tracks, the Santa
Fe having already reached the
ground over which an immense
amount of material is being de-
The completion of the compress
will make an epoch in Guthrie's
industrial developement, assuring
the city its rightful place as the
leading cotton market of Okla-
homa, besides the benefit derived
from the employment of a con-
siderable number of men during
the fall and winter months. The
establishment of a large cotton
mill should follow.
Mr. J. D. Crays and Miss Jen-
nie Everson were married Sunday
at the residence of the bride's
sister, Miss Laura Everson, North
First street. Refreshments were
served after the wedding and the
young couple were given a pleas-
ant bon voyage into the land of
double happiness by their friends.
The bride is a charming young
lady, greatly admired by her
many friends. Mr. Crays is con-
nected with the Star Laundry,
where he is a valuable man. The
State Register came in on some
of the ice cream and wedding
cake, and as there are several
more attractive young ladks
about there we wouldn't mind if
several more weddings took place.

Judge Bierer of Guthrie, O. T.
arrived last Friday from the ter-
ritory, accompanied by his wife
and interesting family. The
Judge thinks Oklahoma is a
mighty nice place and will be a
whole lot nicer when it becomes a
state—and no man in the terri-
tory is working harder for that
consummation than he. The
Judge is enjoying a big legal
practice at Guthrie and it would
not surprise the Globe that he
would have U. S. Senator or Con-
gressman affixed to his name in
sweet-bye and bye—and why not?

Ask YourGrocer lor Bluene
For this season many new and
novel displays are promised, all
of interest and rare entertainment.
The claim is made that in the
matter of detail and all that goes
to make up realism and authenti-
city, the exhibition offered this
season is the only real "Wild
West" touring America.
Every thing imaginable that
can serve to give it a real western
flavor and atmosphjre will be seen
including a herd of buffaloes,
Texas steers and Rocky Moun-
tain burros.
The Indian contingents bring
with them their tepees, travoys
and all impedimenta necessary to
a correct portrayal of their habits
and customs. So it is with every
act and feature of the show, rea
lism being the keynote to all.
Two preformances arc given daily,
rain or shine, while upon the
morning of exhibition a superb
street cavalcade is promised.

Can we breed a 'seedless man"?
asks the Literary Digest, Sept., 2,
To accomplish this, Mr. Luther
Burbank says is and has been the
dieam of his life.
Mr. Burbank, who has given us
the seedless orange, prune, apple,
etc., and who has also changed
the colors of and given new
tints to many flowers, has won
the reputation of being the Wiz-
ard of Am erica, but I believe he
does not mean literally the desire
nor acknowledge the possibility
of accomplishing the result his
language indicates, but rather
speaks from a sociological stand-
point of the production of a peo-
ple free from moral and physical
faults. But so marked has been
his succes in plant breeding, ac-
comp'ishing what a few years
ago would have been pronounced
impossible, has brought the sub-

ject of stirpiculture afresh to the
attention of physiologists and
It has been demonstrated be-
yond a doubt that very dif-
ferent and almost new species
can be created among rapidly
breeding animals, such as the hare
or rabbit, by patient and intelli-
gent effort, but I believe man is
too long lived to come under the
control of any human agency,
whereby his physical or mental
characteristics may be changed
to any considerable degree.
Assuredly changes will come in
the future as in the past, but only
by the slow process of evolution.
What has been accomplished
by Mr. Burbank in horticulture
and floriculture has been the pat-
ient work of many seasons; to
create differentiations in man,
other animals, would
require as many generations even
if one had a free hand which in
the case of man, no one possesses.
With many of the lower animals
man has a more open field, but
the longer-lived the animal the
less is his power to influence or
change natural tendencies.
Another difference: with plant
life and the lower animals, in the
process of creating new features,
the fitiest alone are preserved for
the propagation and development
of desired characteristicsand traits
With man this cannot be done.
Futile attempts have been made
in many states to prohibit the
marriage of diseased men
and women in order to prevent
or curtail the birth of imperfect
and diseased children, but so far
the effort has failed.People afflict-
ed with malignant diseases, and
even lunatics, are allowed free
scope in peopling the earth.
Society in the old South, the
South of three hundred years ago,
and the only real South of today,
has guarded very carefully its
sons and daughters against mar-
riage with the under stratum of
humanity, and by so doing for
generations has produced a cul-
tured people of the highest type
of manhood and womanhood.
New England alone in any way
approaches the purity of blood
and good breeding of the south-
ern people. The higher types of
civilization found in these two
sections of our country are due
to many generations of careful
selection of husbands and wives.
The uplifting of the human fami-
ly in all lands devolves upon the
slow moving influences exerted
by an intelligent and refined so-
ciety and not by'natural selection'
as Darwin claims. To establish
such a potential society requires
the training and nurturing of
many generations,
When Oklahoma becomes a
state, it should be one of its first
duties to enact laws prohibiting
the marriage of those afflicted
with transmissible constitutional
diseases which are a menace to a
higher civilization, and thus aid
the benevolent work of evolution
in its efforts in behalf of the
"survival of the fitiest." But
physical strength is only one ele-
ment of perfect manhood; and it
is a well established fact that
statutory laws become inoperative
when they run counter to the
higher courts of society.
Mr. Burbank therefore would
do well if he would turn over the
task of producing a "seedles man"
as above defined, to society and
devote what energy he has to
spare to the upbuilding of that
