Can't Get Ahead of Boys.
' A firm in Massachusetts avenue, Just
Btnrtlng into business, sent up rubber
balloons in lots of ten, and attached to
eai'h was n ticket calling for merchan-
dise. The news had scattered far and
wide. But the boys did not intend to
let the balloons sail away Into the air
and come down in some one's yard
When the first ten left the hands of
tho man sending them up there was a
twang of rubber bands and a flock of
bent pins was shot Into the slowly ris-
ing balloons. Four dropped to the
ground, burst Into bits—and likewise
four tickets calling for merchandise
which tho youthful bandits scrambled
for and took into the storo for re-

"Well, Brown, how ill you look 1
What's the matter?"
"Oh, nothing much; losing weight,
that's all. Lost a hundred and thirty
pounds of flesh In one day."
"Fact, I assure you. My wife has
eloped with the next-door neighbor!"
Mother—"I'm going to dust your
Jacket I" John—"Can't you do it with
the vacuum cleaner, ma?"
A man seldom realizes what a cold
world this is until his creditors begin
making it hot for him.
PUT SLIGHT VALUE ON SELF
Parishioner's Explanation of Back-
sliding That Might Be Acounted
More or Less Convincing.
Charles B. Ford, the leader of the
Chicago butter and egg board, was de-
fending the high price of eggs.
"It is the egg expert to the soldiers
overseas," he said, "that makes pieces
high. Tho egg market, you see. Is
governed by a purely business spirit.
"If you try to be Idealistic with the
egg market you are treated like Doo-
"Doctor Steenthly said to a belli-
cose parishioner who lmd given anoth-
er parishioner a black eye:
" 'My friend, you should love your
neighbor as yourself.'
"'Yes, sir; that's right, sir,'said the
" 'I'm glad you agree,' snld Doctor
Steenthly, nnd he added In a rather
" 'Do you, though—do you honest-
ly—love your neighbor as yourself?"
"'Yes, sir; oh, yes, sir,' said the
parishioner; 'but I'm n modest man,
you see, and, to tell the truth, I uln't
a bit stuck on myself, sir.'"
Art L. Walker, who resigned yester-
day as a member of the Oklahoma
corporation commission, said last
night that he plans to devote all of his
time after Ills retirement from public
life to his private business. Walker
has considerable farming interests in
the southwestern part of the state
and, It is said, owns several valuable
oil and gas leases in Texas and Okla-
homa fields which he plans to develop.
Walker Is perhaps the best Informed
man In the state on conditions In the
Mid-Continent oil field, and at the
capltol it was said he is planning
extensive operations in the oil busi-
ness. He was the first state chief oil
and gas conservation agent, and it
was under his direction and super-
vision that the present oil and gas
department of the commission was
created, developed and put into work-
The resignation of Walker removes
from the official circle at the capltol
one of its youngest, most active and
conspicuous figures, whose rise In
officialdom Is believed to have few
equals in Oklahoma. Walker came
into political prominence during the
Fifth legislature as Speaker McCrory's
secretary, and from there he stepped
from one important position and office
to another until he reached the bench
of the corporation commission. In his
first statewide political campaign he
was elected to one of the highest
offices in the state by the largest vote
ever given a candidate for the place.
Walker's resignation means the
election of two members of the corpo-
ration commission in the general elec-
tion a year from this November

NEW LAWS ARE IN FORCE
Non-emergency Measures of Last Sea-
sons Become Effective.
The ninety-day limit ran out last
week 011 the filing of the referendum
petitions for submission of (he ques-
tion of the repeal of the automobile
license tax law and the amendments
made by the last legislature to the
workman's compensation law.
All non-emergency acts, including
the two on which incompleted peti-
tions have been filed have become
effective. The petitions bearing the
required number of signatures on the
auto tax was filed, but the one on the
compensation law was not. Operation
of the auto law is to be automatically
suspended until voted upon by the peo-
ple at the next general election.
Of the non-emergency acts which
have become effective the blue sky
law, the home ownership law and the
amended workman's compensation law
are perhaps of the most general im-
portance. Majority of the other new
laws are appropriation bills, making
available funds for the maintenance
of the several state departments and
institutions during the next fiscal year
and local bills affecting conditions in
Laws prohibiting desecration of tho
flag, barring the teaching of foreign
languages below the eighth grado in
the public schools and prohibiting
fraudulent statements in adver :
ments are among the new ones.
A commission composed of the gov
ernor, secretary of state and the state
bank commissioner constitute the
board which is fo administer tho blue
sky law, designed to protect the pub-
lic from investment in worthless secur-
ities known as the buying of blue sky.
They constitute what is known as the
securities commission charged with
the responsibility and dut> of passing
upon the merits of stock offered for
sale in Oklahoma.
The home ownership law will be
administered by th« commissioners of
the land office. The bill carries an
appropriation of $250,000 and in addi-
tion all of the money accruing from
the express rate refunds, now undic
tributed and in the hand^ of the cor-
poration commission will be turned in
to this fund.
Several hundred applications for
loans from the fund are already on
hand, It was said by Secretary A S J.
Shaw of the commissioners of the
land office. The applications will be
considered in the order in which they
are received, it was stated.

MAYOR CLINGS TO HIS JOB
Watson of Muskogee, Blocks Man.
McAlester.—Mayor D. P. Watson
ordered the filing of a response
against the dismissal petition filed
with the state supreme court by in-
terested citizens in the appealed man-
damus proceedings forcing him to call
an election for the managerial form oj
By this action, unless some special
speed is instilled in the procedure,
Mayor Watson will insure that ho
finishes the two remaining years of
his term of office before the court
finally decides the issues in the case.
The election has already been held,
the new charter changes being
adopted, after the district court with
Judge It. W. Higgins, now supreme
justice, ordering the mayor to call the
election in the district court hearing
hore. Mayor Watson says he will not
call an election under the charter
change until the pending litigation is
decided on its merits.

El Reno Votes Bonds.
El Reno.—Establishment of a sys
tem of four or more parks for El Reno
was made possible by the carrying of
the bond issue of $25,000, a vote of
145 for and 109 against having been
polled on the subject. Uncertainty of
voters is believed to have been respon-
sible for the small number of votes
cast, an argument having arisen over
whether all taxpayers or only real
estate owners were eligible to vote.
The present plan is to devote the
$25,000 for the new park sites and lm*
provement of the present park.
We Get the Flag.

has requested that the war department

the colors of the 142nd infantry, today

The extent to which text books now
in use in the public schools of Okla-
homa will be changed in the five year
adoption soon to be made by the pres-
ent school text book commission will
be determined largely by the report
of a special committee designated to
study the subject of changes. A com
mittee of three members of the com
mission has been appointed to go
thoroughly into the subject, consider
the merits of the books now in use as
compared with those offered for
adoption and suggest in what cases
changes should be .made.
Federal Judge Williams has sent a
letter to Governor Robertson em-
phatically denying the report that he
refused to honor a requisition for the
extradition of Henry Starr, bank
robber, when he was governor Starr
was arrested a few days ago at Tulsa
on a charge of robbing a bank at Den-
tonville, Ark., 27 years ago and it
was said at the time that a previous
requisition was turned down by Wil-
liams. Governor Robertson declared
that if he found the facts the same as
were presented to Williams he too
would refuse to honor it.
