Russia is in a pitiable state.
They *re a many languaged
people and a many idested people
without organisation or leaders;
in fact are opposed to leaders.
Everything is ripe for a revolu

them, autocracy would fall and a
republic be established. But
uninhabitable. With a rain-fall j that too often proves the rum of

The United States paid France
forty million dollars for her hold

as old out-of-date dredges and
railroad engines and other ma-
chinery practically worthless,
also about four thousand old
wooden buildings that had not
been used for many year* and
so badly decayed that they were
rust and decay had done
fatal work, and every official
paid double and triple wages
A press agent is allowed $10,000
per year. More than is paid a
congressman or a United States
Senator, two thousand dollars
more than is paid the Secretary
of War. It is no wonder they
have spent so many millions.
We noticed last week that J-
Bryan Cain had been feasting a-
gain; this time at Andrew Hat
field's, we had our feet under
that table and we know lv- had
a fe ist, we remember some years
ago at Wellington, Kansas, the
Kentuckians had * reunion and
J. Bryan was on hands, told an
old lady he was a
its to be leaders without knowledge,
ideas or ability, instead of listen
ing to someone that compre-
hends fully and grasps the situ
ation of advancement.
Friends and neighbors of Gov-
ernor Ferguson, at Watonga, are
preparing to receive the gover-
nor and wife with a brilliaat re
ception. The home is being car
peted, window blinds pat up and
everything put in order. Even
supper w ill be r«*adv, nres aglow.

Prague, up to this time, has
handled over 8,000 bales of cot-
ton. Last year Prague handled
right at 10,000 bales, but we may
fall a little short of that this year.
Hut the prices are better this
year and there will be more
money dropped iu the country
this year than last year. The
crop is not all in yet and it comes
in plentifully every day. Our
merchants are busy, some of
them selling from two or three
hundred to live and six hundred
dollars worth of goods per day
fhe two banks, up to date, hav
paid out for cotton alone $400,00O
and during the season will reach
surprisingly close to one hal
million dollars. Then, counting
two million bushels of grain and
many cars of Irish potatoes and
•Jie live stock, including poultry,
there is between six hundred
thousand and seven hundred
thousand dollars in money
dropped in Prague this year
It is no wonder business is
Kood in our town. In fact it
ought to be better, and we de
serve a better town. And if we
can establish the new county
