Now that the candidates have
all been named and the primary
system has depleted the pocket-
books of defeated candidates,
the pathetic side of the campaign
shows up. No doubt there are
those who have mortgaged their
property and borrowed from
their friends to make the race.
Everything lc ked so sure, that
they spent their mine freely
good fellows trying to find the
pot of gold at the end of the
rainbow. They were sp irred on, .
no doubt, by promises of big
support from every locality they]
visited. The nervous tendon has
been great; the depression

tice has received a shock. It
is now the defeated man
promises himself never to run
again. Will he keep his promise?
Love at first sight often re-
sults in quit at the first oppor-
tunity. The state of marriage
bliss is fast becoming a state of
conjugal misfit. Nine times out
of ten the man is blamed when
he is only the victim of circum-
stances. Out of sillydom comes
a steady stream of young girls
of immature judgment. A
young man with a dearth of
gray matter and a wealth of
good clothes which represent his
salary in toto, is set upon by a
bevy of girls who smile and flirt
and make advances which be-
wilder and tickle his vanity. It
is not necessary to go through
the formality of an introduc-
tion—the girls will attend to
that. I he young man's record
is never looked Into or question-
ed. If he is silly enough to be
insipid, that's enough; if his
glance is inviting, an affinity is
soon on its way to the ripening
stages. The result is a hasty
marriage, and later, a divorce
or desertion. No, the men are
rot all to blame. Parents should
teach their daughters to meet
men as companions only after a
thorough knowledge of what
manner of critter he is. Fath-
ers should tell their boys some-
thing of the cost of rearng a
iamily and the danger of having
their noses to the grindstone un-

Hie Oklahoma PanamaExposi-
tion Commission has been work-
ing without compensation, mere-
ly through state pride to provide
a suitable building and make a
creditable exhibit at the Panama-
Pacific International Exposition
at San Francisco in 1915. The
Commission needs and deserves
the co-operation of every com-
munity in the state. Everyone,
who possibly can, should contri-
bute their one dollar to the build-
ing fund. Arrangements have
been made that these donations
can be left with the local banker
who will remit to the commission.

MRS. W. T. HANCOCK, Clerk.
„ - -, 1914,
aged 69 years, -1 months and 10
days. When a baby she was left
without a mother, and was raised
by foster parents. At the age
of twenty-two she was united in
marriage to J. G. Evers. To this
union ^even children were born,
five of whom still live to mourn
her loss—Julia Butler, Rankin,
Okla., Walter Evers, Berlin,
Okla., Beatrice Evers of the
same place, Lillian Nelson, of
Sayre, Okla., and W. J. Evers of
^ ukon, at whose home she passed
away. She spent her life in
Alabama until 1898, when she
moved with her family to Texas,
and in 1902 they came to Okla-
homa. In 1907 she suffered the
loss of her husband and since
that time she has made her home
with her son, Walter, at Berlin.
In early life she united with
the Methodist church, but after
moving to Texas she united with
the Christian church. She was
a faithful mother and devoted
Christian, loved by those who
knew her. She came to Yukon
•July 5th to visit her son, Wil-
liam. She took to her bed in a
very few days and constantly
weakened until the end came,
August 3d. The family have
the sympathy of their friends in
this time of sadness.
The funeral services were con-
ducted by Rev. C. N. Hewitt at
the M. E. chhrch and interment
was made in the Yukon ceme
[The Case of L. L. Cantelou
The case of L. L. Cantelou, Claren-
don. Texas, is similar to that of many
others who have used Chamberlain's
Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy.
He says, "After trying a doctor for
several months, and using different
kinds of medicine for my wife who had
been troubled with severe bowel com-
plaint for several months, I bought a
25c bottle of Chamberlain's Colic,
Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy. After
using the second bottle she was en-
tirely cured." For sale by all dealers.

any orders during the summer.
