The Hoy and the Hen.
There has been quite a bit
printed lately about the help tht
farmer derives from his chickens,
hogs and cows, and the report of
products from these three sourc-
es is enough to make one wond-
er why ihe farmer does not look
after this branch of farming olos-
er. Mr. Coburn up in Kansas
put the hen in the lime light
when he got out his book—"The
Most of farmersput their entire
faith in tlieir fields wheat, corn
and cotton and turn the chickens
and cowa over to the women folks
Its a wrong idea. A crop is nev
er a sure proposition until you
have the money for it in your in-
side pocket. It may be too dry
or two wet, the worms may get
your cotton and bu^a yoifr wheat
or hail knock the stuffing out of
it. The farmer gambles with the
elements and posts from tho time
he plows until he garners, and
he wins about half the time. And
he only has about two months in
the year to market his stuff .
With the hen, hog and cow,
they yeild a harvest each day in
the year as well as Sunday.
Tliere products are always in de-
mind and at good prices. The
hog makes it possible for you to
get twice the amount" for your
corn than you can by hauling it
—take your corn to market on
foot instead of in a wagon. The
hen, like the brook, goes on for-
ever. She is an early riser and
js home every night. Sha is a
rustler from a way back. She
rhe farm, or half of it anyway,
md pays you from one to two
•ents a day in eggs to allow her
a place to roost. The boll weevil
it the chinch bug stand no show
to detain her; she is a joe, all
wool and a yard wide. The cow
does her part and if you will do
yours in making good clean but-
ter out of her milk and not weight
it down with salt, you Can get
fancy prices for it that will run
into the hundreds during the
Don't give all your time to the
cultivation of your fields, spend
as much time with the stock and
chickens as you do with the corn
and cotton. Have a good orchard
and garden and you need not
fear hard times, financial flurries
or panics. No matter what goes
in town, you have got your living
on the farm. Get better acquaint-
ed with tho hbg, the hen and the
generally finds her own living on i8P-
Tho quaila around town have
been shot at so much that they
have about all gone farthor back
in the country and it takes a
buggy journey now to get where
there is good shooting. The
season closes tomorrow a week,
the first of the month. The hunt-
ers have left enough birds how-
ever, for a good crop next year.
The lath around one of the
flues at the Frisco hotel.caught
fire Sunday, but was discovered
in time to prevent damage.
Mrs Marsh, living about 8 miles
east ot town died Saturday. She
has been feeble ever since her
husband died about a month
Was a False Alarm
The fire built under the countv
commissioners has gonecomplet-
ly. out, both the grand jury and
the district oourt refusing to sus-
tain the charges brought against
these oounty guardians. As
was stated in the Register sever-
al weeks at;o, th.it when the mat-
ter was sifted out it would be
found that the commissioners
were straight and the court has
so decided. It was only spite
work that started the trouble,
and also got some people's name
in the papers who would have
ttie world to believe they were
great reformers and guarded the
interests of Oklahoma county
with a jealous eye. All will be
glad to know that the county ban

are to be trusted and who will

Concuctot's story told by the
Robetea Star: A woman and a
boy got on the train with a full
fare and a half fare ticket. "M i-
dura, I can't take this ticket for
the boy he wears long p ints.1'
said the conductor. "All right
said the woman take the full fare
ticket for him.
The skating rink draws like a
mustard plaster. Both old and
young are patronizing it. The
floor of the building while com-
paratively smootfi, gives out a
hollow sound and as the skates
go over it, it sounds like "wila
breakers on a rock ribbed shore."
