DAIRY PRODUCTS OF OKLAHOMA.
(Statistics just published give the valuo of the dairy products of Okla
homa at a figure well up in the millions. The industry has been growing
by leaps and bounds, and its possibilities are becoming so well known
that dairying will soon become a most important factor of the agricul-
tural activities of the state.
Pottawatomie county is peculiarly well adapted to the dairying busi-
ness. The great fields of alfalfa furnish splendid cow provender, while
the fertile fields yield thousands of tons of filler for silos. Weather con-
ditions are such that dairy herds are easily cared for,—in fact, this is
an ideal dairy country. A milk condensery or a big creamery that would
furnish a good market at all times for milk and 'butter fat would be a
great boon to this imraedlato section, and make the farmer more inde-
pendent than ever of cotton and other staple crops.
(Everybody is preaching diversification to the farmer, but he is still
left with the problem of what to plant in place of cotton. He must havo
some crop that will yield ready money, and now It Is up to him and his
friends to find what is best adapted to each partioular section. One
trouble Is In raising enough of any one commonlty to make it marketable
at a fair price. For example, peanuts would be a very profitable crop
In the sandy portion of Pontotoc county If raised in quantities that would
enable the crop to be shipped in car lots. The same may be said of other
crops.—Ada Dally News.
That Oklahoma's educational institutions instill in their graduates a
loyalty to the state that furnishes them an education is ahown by figures
recently compiled at the University of Oklahoma. According to these
figures more than 71 percent of the 813 graduates of this institution
whoso addresses are known, are In Oklahoma, and practically every one
of these Is engaged In some occupation that gives to the people of Okla-
homa the benefit of the educational system they have built up. These
figures show that 874 degrees have been conferred on 813 persons. Of
this number 17 are deceased, and the addresses of 16 ore unknown. Of
the remaining 780, 13 are in foreign countries, 212 are in other states,
and 555 are in Oklahoma. It would be difficult even to estimate the ben-
efits that Oklahoma will reap in future yoarB from her broad educational
THE TRIl'MI'll OF TilF. OLD SOWS.
"The Face on the Barroom Floor." "Ten Nights in a Barroom,"
"Father, Dear Father, Come Home With Me Now," "Where Is My Wan-
dering Boy Tonight?"—for years those old "pieces" and songs were
Jeered at, parodied, made fun of. Nobody thought much of them; nobody
thought they had made a landing.
But now, look! Inartistic, melodramatic, "unaesthetlc," they did
make a landing. They had in them something that reached the con-
science. They touched the popular heart where a polished address, a
"problem play," or a "classical" lyric would have gone by. There was an
elemental appeal in them.
Do you doubt it? *I,ook at Booze, running now on wobby legs. Look
at the dry map of a Nation that used to be so wet you could wring It.
Look at the orders of railroads, banks, stores, factories against the em-
ployment of drinkers. Look—well, just look. Ix>ok anywhere, and see
the advancing triumph of the old songs and plays and "pieces" against
alcohol.—Kansas City Star.
There is an old fairy story every child is familiar with, which
really should be read by grown people. It tells of a cowardly little
tailor, who went home to dinner one noon, and while he was e:\ting
his soup flies settled on the jam. The little tailor lilt at the flies and
killed seven. He was greatly exelted and called his wife and children
and said to them: "Look what I have done; killed seven with one
stroke." He ran out of the hou.°e and told the neighbors Finally he
had a belt made on whic*\ in big gold letters, was printed "SKVI'N
WITH ONE STROKE." Everyone ihouuht the little tailor had killed
seven men with one stroke of his sword. He gained tho reputation of
being a strong brav4 man, and became ;> man <>f powerful Influence
in his town. After the death of the little tailor who killed seven flies
with one stroke his townsmen han "Seven With One Stroke" Inscribed
on his tombstone, and people laid flowers on the grave of the dead
hero. Toot your own horn. The man who advises you not to, wants
quiet so his own c.ln be heard.— Atchison Globe.

THE EXERCISE OF THE VETO.
A Right Which Ma/ Be Freely Used by
Our Chief Executive, but Which
Might Shake the Throne of the Mon-
arch Who Dared Assert It.
It has I mm'* 11 said that the president
of the L'nind States has more real
power than must monarchs of Europe.
I do not Uiima that I am able to insti-
tute an inif .MMit comparison, because
to do that • s. might to t e quite fainil
lar with tin • xient of the royal or im
perial pow.t t - he measured with that
of our pres mil., mid i have not sutii
dent know < duo on the subject
1 know soii!<*iblim with respect to the
real govern i-u jm> vr of the king of
England, ami except In an Indirect
way the pr > iilent's power far exceeds
that of Kliiu J.eorge, and I think It is
very cons! it il.lv mire than that of
the president of Cranee. When, how-
ever. one examines the Imperial power
In governments like Germany, Austria,
Italy and Spain the question is much
more difficult, and I presume no one
would sa.\ that the president's power
Is equal to ti at of the czar of Russia.
With us ji president Is elected for
four years, mid nothing can get him
out of office except bis death or his res-
ignation --which never comes—or his
impeachment The certainty of his
tenure for four years makes our execu-
tive administration a little more rigid
and less subject to quick changes of
public opinion than In the parliamen-
tary countries. I am inclined to think
that our system Is a good thing for our
country, however much parliamentary
government may suit the countries
where It Is 111 use.
Of course it has this advantage: In
a parliamentary government there is a
union between tile executlvt and the
legislative branch**, and they there-
fore work together, because those who
constitute the executive lead and di-
rect the legislation, whereas in tho
separation of the great branches of the
government with us the president rep
resents the executive, congress the leg
Islative and the courts the Judicial
branch, and the plan of the men who
framed the constitution was to pre
serve these branches separately.
The president is able to recommend
legislation to congress, and he may go
In person to argue the wisdom of it If
he-chooses. Mr. Wilson restored an
old custom of that sort, which was
abandoned by President Jefferson, and
I think he was right in doing so. It
emphasizes the president's recommen
datlons and focuses the eyes of the
people on that which he regards as Im-
portant to the public welfare, and It
puts a greater responsibility on con-
gress to give attention to his sugges
The British constitution gives the
power of veto to the king, but it has
not been exercised for more than two
centuries, and were It attempted It
wouM fibake the throne. The exercise
of the president's veto always rouses
eloquence on the part of those who are
much disappointed :it the defeat of the
measure, and the walls of congress not
infrequently resound with denuncia-
tion of his tyrannical exercise of a
But the fact is it bus come to be a
more frequent characteristic of a re
public than of a modern monarchy.
For a king or an emperor to interpose
a veto to an act of the popular leglsla
ture Is really to obstruct the people's
will, because he was not chosen by
their votes, but inherited his royal
power. He must indeed be careful In
exercising a veto lest he incur a pro-
test and arouse n feellim dniiirerous to
The case of the president is very dll
ferent. The constitution established
by the people requires the president to
withhold his signature from a bill If he
disapprove of It and return It with hi
objections to the house In which It ori_-.
lnated. for the president is quite as
much the representative of the peopl.
as are the members of the two houses
Indeed, the whole people of the Unit
ed States Is his constituency, and he
therefore speaks and acts for them
quite as certainly as the members
elected from congressional districts or
the senators from the states He is
not exercising a kingly power In a
veto. He Is acting In a representative
capacity for the whole people and Is
preventing a law that he thinks would
work to the detriment of the whole
country. On this account the roar of
the young Hons of congress against
