Governor Jenkins is a Methodist.
A prominent figure in polities—$.
Medical students never steal the
family skeleton from the closet.
In France men are privileged to
have women kneel at their feet. The
number of girl Itootblacks in Paris
is said to be multiplying rapidly.
The one who prays the loudest is
not always the best man or woman.
Sanctity and loud praying is often
the disguise used by the devil.
Pond Creek Vidette.
The Presbyterians will build a
$3,000 church at Pond Creek soon.
Even the churches are booming in
ltie El Keno Daily Democrat runs
a beautiful cut of their new proposed
court house. It is a dandy.—Shaw-
It is a mistaken idea that the wav

down others. Like Sampson, in
crushing others they crush them-
The taxpayers of this county are
not dying to saddle a $75,000 court
house debt upon themselves.
At least the British will have to
catch Gen. DeWet before they can
commit him to an insane asylum.
It will hereafter cost $50 to gam-
ble in Arkansas, one half to go to the
informer and the other half to the
public school funds.
W orthen. Sin-killer Griffin and
Cyclone Ross would make a dandy
gospel team to drive tandem. With
Sister Nation to draw crowds and
make the collections, sinners and

The tramp nuisance is on the in-
crease. Yesterday two jiolicemen
were killed by them at Joplin. The
police of every town should pursue
a policy of extermination.
There are no factions in the He-
publican party of Oklahoma now.—
Oh rats!—and musk rats, at that.
Enid has two factions of the repult-
lioan party, and they both carry con-
cealed weapons.—Shawnee Demo-
So has El Keno.
Kansas grain growers are organiz-
ing for the purpose of boycotting the
grain dealers' combine and doing
their own shipping.
Sid Clark has been elected presi-
dent of an Oklahoma City organiza-
tion called "The Boomers." It is a
frosty day when Sid gets shut out of
any organization that has a political
ring to it.—Shawnee Democrat.
Men of decency will not condemn
the Louisville mob which publicly
whipped a young man for insulting a
young lady. A similar dose should
be administered to every "masher"
guilty of the same offense.

Several insignificant towns in the
northern part of the Territory,
among which is Guthrie, are laying
pins to secure the capital when Ok-
lahoma becomes a state. All their
work, however, will have been in

for the honor.—The Last Frontier.
Thrive on Abuse.
Dr. I'arkhurst, and other New-
York divines, having heard of Rev.
Ross's campaign in El Reno, began
last week to infringe upon that gen-
tleman's copyrighted prerogative by
abusing the Christian Science peo-

blackguarded by the New York-
East Conference of the M. E.
Church. Then Dr. Parkhnrst open-
ed his batteries and again lasf Mon-
day the Baptist clergymen, known
as the New \ ork ministerial con-
ference, discussed the matter and on
Monday morning a most radical
paper was read before that body.
Leading representatives of the
Christian Science people said they

notice of these Christian rantings (?)
j That instead of doing the Christian

"Nxty-one j -r cent of the womeu

El Reno has just goue through a
scourge of sensational foreign
' preachers. The Democrat is very
ievere in Its denunciation of the
methods employed by the "grafters"
and their actions became such a
| stench in the nostrils of the people
that some unknown public benefac-
tors saturated them with -tale eg^s

As an evidence of the rapid
growth aud development of this
cult, in 1890 they had but 94 church

they had but educational insti-
tutions; now 79. In 1890 they had
but 27 public reading rooms; now
