I Sii.vkh lias boon downed liy gold
in Alaska at least.

The present weather is par excel-

Every bushel of wheat produced
liy Oklahoma this year that is not
needed for home consumption will be

(Joi n fever is raging throughout
the country and the most practical
remedy for most of the sufferers
vould lie atrip to Alaska.
Oklahoma is the banner agricul-
tural commonwealth this year. It
■has a greater variety of good crops
Mian any like area of country.
As an evidence of better times it
luiay be noted ihat all the railways
ke increasing their force of laborers
linil the hours of working time.
The strike situation is still a mix-
id affair. It was thought a few days
ngo that arbitration would settle it
but that point has not yet been
Forekin countries will need every
jbushel of surplus American wheat
■bis year. That fact alone will in-
sure good prices when exportation
So far no Norinaiiito lias rushed
iotf to the Alaska gold fields but it
■cannot be foretold that someone will
|not soon go. Norman generally
keeps well in front.
There is promise of better prices
tor every product of the farm before
the close of the present year, l'ros-
r'ts for the people of Oklahoma
twere never brighter.
In Chicago an ordinance lias been
■passed taxing owners of bicycles a
"Hollar per year. As a source "f rev-
lenue raising, this method is likely to
pie followed extensively.
Oklahoma is now assured of the
Kriggeet grain yield in its history. It
■s undoubtedly in better shape in
■that respect than any like area of
ountrv in the I 'niled States.

Kxcept in the little matter of put-
ting up $50,000 Oklahoma City now
has the Sapulpa extension of the
Frisco railway secured.
Tim wise business man is the one
who is paving the way for a good
fall's trade by planting a judicious
advertisement in the local newspa-
It is now figured that some cotton
in Oklahoma will be ready to market
by September 1st. The plant is now
making a satisfactory giowth arid
promises an abundant yield.
Many farm products are twenty-
five per cent higher priced than they
were a year ago but you could not
make a populist acknowledge that
prosperity is any nearer now than at
The man who is looking for the
right place to stay should come to
Oklahoma and be convinced that lie
has found it, No need to go to
Alaska to hunt gold, it is here if
proper efforts are made to gel it.
The advance in the price of wheat
is due to the demand of the buyers
for export, say those that are post
ed, The average Oklahoma farmer
does not care much to what particu-
lar influence the increase is due if it
will coutinuuo a few mouths time
Tiik prediction that the sugar trust
will be floored before the tariff bill
becomes a law it is safe to say meets
with the approbation of the Ameri-
can people. The senate may be in
favor of trusts, the house is not and
the house will be victorious when the
end is reached.
It will be well to curb your am-
bition and wait 'till next year before
going there even if you have the
Alaska gold fever. In that country
summer is about over and probably
more definite reports from the gold
fields will be had bv next year.
Rain has fallen within the past
|wecks time all over Oklahoma.
Kansas had but a sprinkle in several
[localities and the crops there are
Buffering for lack of moisture.
It is not the fault of the country
that mote people do not find content-
ment and riches. The country and
Its opportunities are now greater than
! ver but everyone's dream of perfec-
tion cannot be realized.
Lower freight rates to New York
i. Galveston are disturbing the
tastern railways. Deep water
pn the Texas coast will mean better
■iriccs for the products of Oklaho-
ma, Kansas and Nebraska farmers.
Millions of bushels of corn are
k-to'ed up in the state of Nebraska,
the average price there now being
leleven cents per litishel. The pros-
meets for another unusually heavy
brop there is very flattering so low
Jirices are likely to prevail.
Tiie farmers are holding their
vlieat for a higher price and it
looks vers much as though thev would
jgi'.it. \ raise of about a cent a
liushel a day, the past week's
ecord, will soon make wheat worth '
Ik. venty-five cents in this market.
Governor Barnes spent this week
in Washington looking after various
candidates for Oklahoma ofliec af-
tairs. The I . S. Marshalship affair
is still in statu quo though it is un-
derstood generally that DeFord's
appointment^vill be made at an
early day. •
Rumor has it that unless some of
the officers resign soon tbeir scalps
will be taken and their places filled
by republicans Next September a
number of land office ofliciaU will
have served out their allotted time
and appointinents to fill their places
are likely to come soon.
The Transcript is informed by
President Boyd that the University
here will undoubtedly have a larger
attendance this coming session than
ever before, as inquiries are daily
being made concerning it. Next
year will certainly be one of renoun
to Oklahoma's educational institu-
When a country can produce all
|.lie agricultural products its people
squire and as much more for ex-
h ort it ought to lie in pretty good
■ liapc. That's Oklahoma's standing
In thi* \ear of A. D., l and
llon't you forget it.
The Wichita Kansas Beacon struck
a responsive chord in the hearts of
the editors when it said: "The first
act of the Oklahoma farmer after he
has marketed his phenouiinal crop of
wheat should lie to drop around to
the local newspaper offices, pay up
hi* delinquent subscription and then
till the editors soul with ecstacy by
planking down at least a year's sob
scription iu advance. The Territory
editors have sung the praises of Ok-
lahoma through good report and ill,
now they ought to share in the bless-
ings and benefits of this magnificent
NOW 18 THE TIME.
Now is the time for the people of
Oklahoma to do some effective ad-
vertising for the benefit of themselves
and the country. If possible,
samples of the finest grain, grasses,
fruits, etc., should be saved for ex-
hibition at the fairs and for distribu-
tion among friends in less favored
countries. Don't be afraid to say a
good word for Oklahoma and its re-
sources. Send copies of your home
newspapers and other literature that
gives information of the country
to eastern friends and newspapers.
Do a share towards telling the peo-
ple who desire information that we
have here the best new country under
the sun and that there is room here
for thousands of home-seeking peo-
ple. Every acre of good land in
this country should be made to pro-
duce good crops and furnish homes
for the people. Increased valuation
would mean lower taxes and bring
capital into the country. Kvery
community would then flourish the
towns would prosper and progress-
ion would reign everywhere.
IT WAS GLORIOUS.
A life-giving, crop-saving, boun-
tiful rain fell here last Saturday and
again on Monday, drenching the
parched earth and reviving drooped
vegteation and the spirits of all man-
kind. It came in time to save all
late crops, which had begun to suf-
fer from excessive heat and the hot
blasts of wind from the plains of
south-west Texas. To-day all Okla-
homa feels the good effects of the
rain, the hum of industry is abroad
in the land, everybody is busy and
depression and gloom have been dis-
pelled. Let everybody rejoice, they
surely have an incentive for doing
Wheat is advancing in price at the
rate of one cent per day. If it should
thus continue it would not be many
days hence until the dollar mark
would be reached even in Oklahoma.
Of course it will no' reach that figure
for some time yet but granting that
it should there would still be found
here men who would lament because
it was not higher priced.
The grand lodge, of A. O. U. W.,
for Oklahoma held a two days ses-
sion at Edmond this week. The
Oklahoma Workmen now number
about 1,000 and the order is rapidly
growing. The proposition for con-
solidation with the supreme lodge
was not satisfactory to the Oklahoma
grand lodge and was rejected. New of-
ficers for the ensuing year were elect-
ed among the number being A. E.
Coleman, of Norman, as grand over-
In proportion to the size of the
city in which it is printed, The Kan-
sas City Star has a larger circulation
than any other American newspaper.
Its remarkable success has been
achieved by its unfaltering adherence
to the rule of giving its readers the
best that The Star's increasing re-
venues could furnish and its improv-
ed facilities could supply, The Star
was the first newspaper to give its
readers .i full week's papers six
evenings and Sunday morning -for
10 cents a thing thai could nol be
profitable except when done on tne
big scale on which The Star does
everything. The Star was also the
first to establish a weekly edition for
the trilling (nice of 25 cents a year;
110,000 regular circulation for the
weekly edition demonstrates the
wisdom of the idea.

Norman lias a good cotton seed
oil mill and it ought to have a com-
press. If El Reno, until a year ago
considered outside the cotton raising
belt of Oklahoma, can afford a cot-
ton compress, surely Norman situat-
uated as it is in the midst of the
cotton producing area, can make a
compress profitable. The location
of any institution that will furnish
employment for labor, bring addition-
al products to the town and create a
demand for more of it, will be bene-

Kvery farmer in Oklahoma that
has wheat to sell can afford to dis-
pose of enough of it at present mark-
et prices to enable him to pay off
his debts, if he ows any. After tl.at
if he wants to hold his grain for
higher piiees it is no one's business
and he is perfectly justified in follow-
in;; his own judgement' With a
good yield of grain, such as nearly
every farmer has secured, aud a price
hovering around the sixty cent quo-
tatiou every wheat raiser can iff ord
to sell at least a portion of his grain.
It may be wise to hold for higher
prices, but it ought not to be done
at the expense of the men who have
entrusted labor and capital to tide the
farmer over the period of depressing
hard times The average Oklahoma
farmer has been enabled by this
season's crop to become compara-
tively independent aud his prosperi-
ty will mean prosperity for all, Of
that, the Transcript fuels assured,
and time will demonstrate that in
this wo are not jfljstakeu.
Whether in the form of pill powder
j or liquid, the doctor's prescription for
blood diseases is always the same—
mercury or potash. These drugs bottle
up the poison and dry it up in the
system, but they also dry up the marrow
in the bones at the same time.
The suppleness aud elasticity of the
joints give way to a stiffness, the rack-
ing pains of rheumatism. The form
gradually bends, the bones ache, while
decrepitude and helplessness prema-
turely take possession of the body, and
it is but a short step to a pair of
crutches. Then comes falling of
the hair and decay of the bones,—a con-
dition truly horrible.
