Oklahoma's Bright Prospects
Oklahoma City, Jan. 5.—Oklahoma
/titers the year 1912 with courage and
/hope. General rains have prevailed
over the entire state and the ground
is saturated with needed moisture.
Her soil is as productive as can be
found In any state of the union; her
people are industrious, progressive
and temperate. W'ith rains in season
the value of her agricultural products
will be sufficiently remunerative to
insure the continued growth of the
commonwealth. The development of
her oil and gas resources goes stead-
ily forward and the field of profitable
operation is constantly enlarging. Ok-
lahoma’s status as a coal-producing
state is already established, and there
remains yet to be developed thou-
sands of acres underlaid with the very
best kind of coal. Her mlnteral
wealth is being exploited, and while
it Is yet In its first stage of develop-
ment It gives promise of yielding
splendid results to those engaged in
that field of work. With all this nat-
ural wealth and with a citizenship fill-
ed with ambition and boundless enter-
prise. the coming year bids fair to be
the banner year for general develop-
ment in Oklahoma’s history.

BIRTH OF JOHN THE BAPTIBT.
LESSON TEXT—Luka 1:57-80.
MEMORY VERSES—67-69, or 76, 77.
GOLDEN TEXT—“Blessed be the Lord
God of Israel, for He hath visited and
redeemed hU people.”—Luke 1:66.
Another' fulfilled prophecy added to
laBt week’s lesson. “Hath God said,
and shall he not do it?” Heaven and
earth shall pass away, but one Jot or
tittle of his promises shall never fall.
Strange that God should remember his
promise to a single individual amldBt
the infinite multitude of the sons of
men! Yet he does. He marks the
fall of a sparrow. And so according to
God’s promise, the child was born.
At the proper time, the child was
dedicated to God in the temple. These
righteous parents recognized that the
child was God’s gift. All Godly parents
should. Bo we? Have we presented
our children in dedication to the Lord
In the church? The first place these
parents took their child was to church.
Is this true of us?
The naming of the child is interest-
ing. John means, “gracious gift of
God.” Zacharias thought of God In
naming the child. What did you thlnk(
of when you named your child? Did
you give it a Christian name, or call-!
ed it after some heathen, godless nov-l
ellst? Does the name stand for any-
thing? Is It an Inspiration to the child?
Does It express your hops and faith
There are times when, In order to
please God, we must differ with our
friends. So it happened in the naming
of John. Out of respect for Zacharias,
and because of his advanced age, and
knowing that he had no other child,
his friends proposed naming the child
after him, probably to perpetuate the
family name. But already God had
announced the name. The angel said
that the child’B name should be John.
These godly parents stood fast by the
Word of God, irrespective of the opin-
ion of even well-meaning friends.
A striking question was asked:
“What manner of child shall this be?”
What strange thoughts must have been
passing through the minds of those
parents at this time aB they recalled
the angel’s message and the predicted
future of this child! As Zazharias
looked into the unconscious face of
his child he saw the prophet of the
Parents, what possibilities do you
see in your child as you look Into its
face? That little life is for you to
mold. To some extend you can tell
what manner of child he Is to be.
Teacher, what do you Bee In the child?
Just a bundle of nerves to be kept
quiet, or the possibilities of a great
Zacharias’ song is full of victorious
and prophetic hope; It is Itself a ful-
fillment of a prophecy; God hath vis-
ited hls people. For over 2,000 years
the righteous in Israel had looked for-
ward to the fulfillment of this proph-
The advent of this child brought Joy,
not only to Zacharias and his wife,
but to their neighbors.
The birth of this child brought forth
this hymn of praise to God for his
goodness. Did you ever thank God
for your children? Who gave them to
you? Children are the heritage of
the Lord. How much would you take
for them? All the wealth in the world
could not buy them. Nor are you ask-
ed to sell them; but you are asked to
think of the One who gave them to
you. There are your children: Can
they see, when bo many have been
born blind; can they hear, when so
many have been born deaf; can they
romp, when so many have been bora
lame; can they speak, when so many
have been born dumb! Oh ye par-
ents who have sweet children on earth
—and it may be in heaven—does not
their presence cause you to burst out
In praise to God!
Another thing that led to this song
of praise was the fact that Zacharias
was filled with the Spirit. Joy and
gladness are always associated with
the Spirit: “Be filled with the Spirit;
speaking to yourselves in spiritual
songs, singing and making melody in
your heart to the Lord.” The Spirit-
filled man Is the happy man. Are you
a happy Christian? If no, why not?
What a description ws have in the
song of Zacharias of tbs deliverance
which Christ brings to every soul that
trusts him: Deliverance from Satan,
from death, from sin, from the world,
from every enemy; a protection and
covering from the righteous vengeance
of God; freedom from the conse-
quences of sin; the wonderful promise
that some day—even now in a measure
—we shall serve God with true holi-
ness and righteousness In Joy end1
buessing for evermore.
The song of Zacharias gives us s
model for our hymns and spiritual
Tbs most prominent note In this
song.Is salvation: From our enemies,! |
that we may be enabled to live In
peace and quietness; from sin, that ws
may be able to be constantly well-
pleasing to God; from slavish fear Is

ber $945.74, October $1025.46, Novem-
ber $963.21, December $1046,03. It
.vill be observed March and April
vere the two heavy months, the in-
>•(!£< se being attributable to the large
uuount of postage paid by W. E.
Tredway on the literature he sent out
or the Raisall Remedy Co. A similar
ncrease was noticeable in the year
!910 when the receipts for March
were $1586.77 and for April were
$1273.48, attributable to the same
cause. The total receipts in 1911 were
$14,430.07, the largest for any one
year In the hlBtory of the office. . The
receipts in 1910 were $12,892.14, the
increase for 1911 being $1,537.93. The
receipts by quarters for 1911 were:
First quarter $4378.25, second quar-
ter $4385.38, third quarter $2651.51,
fourth quarter $3014.93. For 1910 the
receipts by quarters were: First quar-
ter $3714.30, second quarter $3369.60,
third quarter $2623.17. fourth quarter
$3185.02. The outlook for 1912 is ex-
ceedingly gqpd for the postofflee, as,
aside from the normal increase, Mr.
Tredway is getting ready to send out
several times the quantity of literature
he did in 1911 for the Raisall Remedy

New Assessor Law
Oklahoma City, Jan. 4.—The last
law created by the 1911 legislature to
become effective, that of the county
assessors, was ushered into being
with the first of January, and now at
the same time several thousand town-
ship assessors over the state relin-
quished their official togas and went
back to private life. By the new law
there are seventy-six eounty assessor*
in the state, who have appointed as-
sistants. The assessors for the first
year, 1912, were appointed by the gov-
ernor, but hereafter shall be elected
at the general election every two
years. Those of 1911 will serve until
the first Monday In January, 1913, or
until their successors are elected and
qualified. The elected county assess-
ors will take the office the first Mon-
day in January following their elec-
tion, and shall hold office for two
years. The county assessors have the
same powers and perform the same
duties in assessing property and mak-
ing the returns thereof, in taking the
assessments and gathering statistical
information as was provided by law,
for township assessors. The new law
provides the county assessor shall be-
gin on the 15th of January of each
year to take a complete list of the
taxable property in the county, the
valuation being assessed as of Jan.
1. On the first Monday In June the
asgeseor shall deliver all lists of prop-
erty to the county board of equalisa-
tion, which consists of the county
commissioners, for the purpose of
having them adjusted and equalised.
Should any asessor fall to comply
with the previsions of the law the
county commissioners may deduct
$25 from hls compensation for each
day he falls to turn In the lists. The
county assessor will receive as com-
pensation for hls services and of his
deputies, and no others: Upon the
first two million assessed valuation, 3
cents per hundred dollars; next three
million valuation, 2 1-2 centa per hun-
dred dollars; next thirty million dol-
lars valuation, or fraction thereof, 1
1-2 cents per hundred dollars, and on
all above thirty-five million dollars
valuation, three-fonrtha of one cent
per hundred dollars. The assessor
shall be paid monthly out of the. sal-
ary fund of the county as other coun-
ty officers are paid, and shall receive
for the first six months 75 per cent of
the total amount allowed, in order U>
be able to pay his deputies and other
current expenses for assessing. Until
the valuation for the current year can
be ascertained, the valuation of tbs
proceeding year shall be used ss »
basis for fixing the amount of com-
pensation to be drawn eaeh month.
