People Are Like Bugs
Like Candle Bugs—a bright, cheerful, ample, radiant, glow-

sure as it will draw the bugs.
The people won't bump their heads against the glass and
cut up as many didos, but they feel the pull of a bright
light just the same—and it draws them.
All nature answers to the call of a bright light—even the
flowers of the field twist their necks and turn their
faces toward the sun.
Mrs. Mother:—Keep a good, bright, warm, glorious light in
the middle of your family circle—it will help to draw
it close and hold it tight.

pleasant call. We judge her to
be a ladv of vigorous mentality,
thoroughly imbued with the
spirit of uplifting suffering and
sorrowing humanity with
which that office has much to do.
She is in the prime of life, al-
though for the past twenty
years devoted to charitable and
industrial school work. In every
wav is she fitted for the position,

are showing no less enthusiasm
for Fields, and insist upon sign-

we can't vote for him," they
say. "In addition to his being a

"Beating Back" Tells Thrilling
"""Beating Back," the life story
of Al Jennings, former outlaw,
as picturized by the Thanhouser
Film Corporation has been ac-
knowledged by press and public
to be the most remarkable film
of its kind ever produced. Occu-
pying six reels with Al Jennings
himself, as the principal charac-
ter, the picture marks an epoch
in the search for the unusual
themes for presentation on the
screen. Al Jennings was for
years the leader of a gang of
, train robbers which rivaled in
j outlawry the notorious Jesse
1 James outfit. Jennings prior
to becoming a "long rider," had
been county prosecutor, sending
many bandits to the penitentiary
for their wrong doings, but he
was finally arrested for his own
wrong doings, and sent to the
penitentiary. The citizens of Ok-
lahoma territory gave a sigh of
relief. Through the intercession
of Senator Hanna, Jennings was
pardoned by President McKinley.
Subsequently President Roose-
velt restored his citizenship and
recently made a big fight for the
Democratic nomination for the
governorship of Oklahoma. In
the film, which was staged by
Carroll Fleming, all the Jennings
deeds of outlawry are portrayed,
together with the story of his
life succeeding his capture and
imprisonment in Ohio peniten-

long trips through Oklahoma,
John Fields said he is in favor of
a "seeing Oklahoma" excursion
for everybody in Oklahoma. "It
would be a fine thing for the
State if more of its citizens
knew more about the Common-
wealth in which they live," said
Mr. Fields. "They would think
more of it if they knew more

When man discards his pruning
hook, and takes up gun or saber,
determined, in his heart, to cook
the gander of his neighbor,
when he elects to turn his face
to ruin, wreck and ravage, he
shows that he, with all his
grace, is still at heart a savage.
He talks about the boon of
peace—an ear his country lends
him—and then he goes to knock
the grease from someone who of-
fends him. He swears by all
the saints above that warfare
shocks and galls him, and he'll
support the White Winged
Dove, whatever ill befalls him;
then someone steps upon his
teos, which makes him yearn for
slaughter, and he proceeds to
tear his clothes, and grabs his
sword and swatter. Is there an
army in his path? You see him
hack and hew it, still crying, in
his noble wrath, "My neighbors
drove me to it!" While wielding
snickersnee and creese, he says
he is a martyr; he claims that
he is a prince of peace, while
acting like a Tartar. At last his
neighbors tire of tricks beyond
excuse or pardon, and so they
break his head with bricks and
plant him in his garden. The
boon of peace! The human
hordes will praise it loud and
louder, and as they praise they'll
grind their swords, and manu-
