OKLAHOMA AND PROSPERITY.
Just now, Oklahoma is bordering
on the throngs of prosperity. Jus*
how great the climax will be remains
to be seen, but the start has been
made and the momentum Is rapidly
increasing with the velocity of the
great harvest that is being garnered.
For some time great hopes have been
expressed for the conditions that now
are, and it -ems that nothing can
impede ti.« great work that nature
has done tj the deserving fanners, to-
gether wi.h their faithful and con-
Looking on all sides one can see the
mighty fields of golden grain, and in
some of them, the busy men thresh-
ing while others are hauling to mark-
et. It is scene that is more than pleas-
ing to the eye, for it reaches the in-
ward man and causes him to rejoice,
for the good times thut are to come,
just In a few days.
Wheat that is averaging about
twenty-five bushels to the acre, and
testing out from fifty-eight to sixty-
two pounds per bushel is only one of
the great things that Oklahomans can
boast of. and be proud of, this year, j

The com, "prospect," is fast getting
beyond that stage, and in a few days,
at least, will see the matured corn
hanging from the tall stalks ready for
the huskers. Corn that is in silk and
tassel is almost beyond the danger

thousands of acres of that kind in
The cotton prosepct is most flatter-

put in many days of hard work, for
the fields are clear of weeds, and the

Lewis Hunter is a candidate for the

Comanche and Cotton counties. He

for the same position two years ago
and was only defeated by a narrow
margin—he having received nearly one
thousand votes. After it was conceded
that J. Roy Williams and Milt Haynes
had received the nomination, Mr.

save more money by building some
kind of a silo than he could possibly
do by investing the money and time in
any other way. Silcs enable the farm-
er to save the feed stuff in a drouth
and makes him the best and cheapest
feed for his stock that he can get.
The following Is from an expert on
The live stock farmer, without the

the elements, when a silo would save
fully 90 per cent.

and nationally—are the merest guess-
work. The people are pondering more
seriously the choosing of officers and
the selection of political affiliation j
than they have in a long while. Can-1
didates need not be surprised that the
people do not enthuse over their j
speeches nor grow excited about their <
candidacy. The people are reading the
newspapers and thinking. The candi-
date with an honest and efficient
record need not worry. The party that
makes pledges to the people and
keeps them, is on the safe side. The
day of the grafter and demagogue has
passed in this country, for which all
good people should rejoice, regard-,
less of party affiliation.
Those republicans who are out on '
the housetops, putting out signals
for "our best citizens" to go and help
them "redeem" this state from demo-
cracy need not expect their revival to
be any too well attended. Democrats
are not built that way. They clean
house in the good old way, and they
stand for the democratic doctrine
four square. Those would-be non-
partisan revivalists who have in the
hitherto been holding republican gos-
pel meetings need expect few re-
cruits from democratic ranku
song they will hear from democratic j
throats will be that good old hymn :
"It was good for Paul and Silas, and
it's good enough for me."
