The tariff must be of the utmost consequence, and
if all the people who write about it and discuss it
publicly are to be believed we ought all to be spend-,
ing our leisure in "studying schedules and protesting
against the provisions of the Payne bill which will,
in our estimation, be doing Oklahoma harm and also
to be absorbed in the fascinating subject as to rise
up early in the morning to read the latest news on
We ought, perhaps, to be giving our undivided
attention to this vital matter, but are we!
Strange to say, most people go about with their
minds on other affairs, refusing entirely to become
excited over the tariff and showing an indillerenee
to it that college and editorial free traders must
regard as hardly less than criminal.
Is the man who has just bought a new automobile
thinking of the tariff?
Is the farmer who is planning to put in lus crops
and figuring on the coming season's enormous profits
taking thought of the tariff on coal or iron or art !
Is the woman who is hunting a tlat or the man
who is building a home caring a continental what the
Congress at Washington does about hides?
Not one of these average citizens shows the
smallest sign of agitation over proceedings which, n
he believes what he is told, should arouse his deep-
est emotions, his utmost urgent activities. It is even
difficult to get him to discuss the topic, so concerned
is he in immediate personal affairs.
Even women who are being tearfully and passion-
latelv enjoined to rise and demand of Congress that
the proposed increase of duty on gloves and hosiery
shall be dropped, show a calm indifference to the

all corn with any certainty of getting a crop. You
might be luck enough to riant the crop mat wUl
bring the big returns and you might not. For this
reason, if for no other, plant several crops each year
and follow a conservative method of farming and
you will be more money ahead at the end of a few
years. Every farmer in the southern part of the
state will probably grow more or less cotton. In
the northeast there will be much corn planted, but
it will never do to plant all of that section to corn.

Henry James, the well known author,
was born in New York. April 15, 1S43. In
his eleventh year his family went abroad,
and for several years he attended school
in Switzerland and France. In 1860 lie
returned to America and entered the Har-
vard law school. When he had finished
his Studies there, in 1869. he again went
to Europe and has since resided the most
of the time in England, with occasional
brief visits to his home country. Mr.
James has been a contributor to most of
the American magazines, but his celebrity
rests mainly upon his novels, which
usually deal with the American as found
abroad. He began as a contributor to
the magazines while a student at Har-
vard. but It was not until 1871 that bis
first book. "Watch and Ward," was pub-
lished. Since then his pen has produced
more than a score of successful novels as
well a* a number of volumes of charming
