Well. Sunhine why so serious to-
day?" said Judge Brown as he over
took his little favorite'on his way
home. "1 have been helping gather
floweres for the soilder graves all
the morning." replied the little girl
"I came up the back street just
now. and as 1 passed Mrs. Simpson
cottage 1 saw her sick brother who
came last week to live with her sit
ting by the window. He looked so
pale and weary I feel sorry for him
He is an old soilder. you know
and—“ her face brightening—“I
am going to take some flowers to
him 1 think that will be lots nicer
than waiting until he is dead. The
soilders who are well can march to
the cemetery and carry the wreath
and bouqoets but he is too sick to
go and I know he must feel sad and
"Well thought. Elizabeth. You
will surely cheer him and do more
good than a dozen doctors. God
bless you;" said the judge as they
parted at her door.
When Elizabeth carried her bou-
quet to the cottage that afternoon
Judge Brown’s cachman was just
leaving the gate and Mrs. Simpson
stood in the doorway holdinga great
bunch of hothous floweres. “See
dearie said she. Judge Brown sent
these for my brother and said to tell
him they are from a comrade, but
he must thanka littletender-heared
girl that he was reminded to send
"Here are some more for him."
said Elizabeth." and I hope he will
not feel very lonely to-day."
That rfternoon. when Judge
Brown closed his memorial address
he suggested that while they hon-
ored the memory of the dead they
should not forget there were those
among them who had served their
country in her hour of need, and
were now pain racked and weary,
awaiting their summons to another
world. Each one might do some-
thing to brighten dark day and cheer
The next week when Mrs. Sim-
pson went to assist Elizabeth.s
mother in some extra work she said
her brother a stranger in the town,
had been glddened by many friend
call’s Judge Brown had not only
been to see him on Memorial Day
but had sent his carriage around
for him to take a ride "And she.
concluded with tears in her eyes.
“When we told him how grateful
we felt for his kindness he said we
must thank Elizabeth not him."
Pointer To Boys
We cannot help but admire the
lad whose ambition reach higher
than “a good time" all the time.and
who will take courage to get out
into the world to learn trade or pro-
fession remarks the Conway Spring
Star. The time is at hand when
the common laborer cannot save
a cent for a“rainy day." because
there isto much competitive .There
are many trades and Drofession in
which lines a betterman can alway
hold positon. Telegraphy, book
keeping studying of law. printing
architecture civil engineering and
a host of others we might mention
where there is always employment
for those who can excel. There is
always room at the top for better
and quicker men. A lad of theseday
after he has finished agood scholing
can do no better than to chdose a
trade or orofession and then one
good habits is after he learns that
and has a good steady position is
to keep sober and let the other fol-
low do hie share of the ‘drinking. ’

Jilted At The Alter
At Wichita, one day last week
after a license had been issued, with
relatives and friends gathered for
the wedding with two ministers
present to perform the ceremory.
' the bride attired in wedding gown
as the wedding march was degun
- declared thatshe would not become
i the wife ofthe man she had promi
sed to wed. Relatives and the
embarrassed groom, a prosperous
farmer gathered around the defiant
bride and pleabed with her in vain.
The girl refused to go on with the
ceremory and also refused to say
why she would not. The wedding
guest departed quietly and the
groom returded home that after-
noon. He still has the marriage
The Press Meet.
The press associotious of Oklah-
oma and Indian Territory have just
closed one of the most interesting
and profitable meeting yet held at
Shawnee where during the latter
part of last week were gathered the
representive newpaper men of the
twin Territories Asa matter of cou-
rse. on account ofthe two associat
ions meeting at the same time and
place the attendance was the larget
ever known and it follows that there
is more of importance to show as a
result of the meeting The most
importance among these was of
course the merging of the two ass-
ociation. Horoscoping the immedi-
ate future and finding the same des
ting in store for each, the two ass-
ociation bowed to the inevitable
bridge the bloody chasm."and sunk
their identities into one. When sta-
tehood finally comes as it will, we
fondls believe within the next two
or three weeks, it will find the prss
of the two Territories united in pur
pose and organized with view to the
rapid effacement of the imaginary
line now separation the two add the
promotion of the progess and
prosperity ofthe new state.
It is tantamount to supereroga-
tion to say that Shawnee received
and entertained her guests hand
somely. Nothing was left undone
for their comfort and convenience
and much was done to and to their
pleasure Editors Barrett of the
