It is a lamentable fact that Hailey-
ville conies mighty near being without
a preacher. Pro, (irimes, who makes
the north side once a month, is the
only pastor that has a regulai ap-
pointment in Haileyville.—Haileyville
Maybe the town doesn't need a
preacher. In which event, it is all
the more fortunate. Not that pieaeh-
aren't a mighty fine thing, but
,f a town doesn't require their ser-
vices it must be in an unusually classy
It costs money to see America first
on acount of our vastness, but it
loesn't cost a penny to see America
What about the fellow who is ware-
housing a million gallons of Kentucky
brew and can't sell it this side of the
Atlantic? It costs him something to
see America thirst, or we miss our
Vale, J. B. Corn—may the divil
take a liking to you.—Hartshorne Sun.
Some Oklahoma editors don't care
what they put off on Old Nick.
Now is the time the stay-at-homes
should make good use of the country
And also the canning club.
If all the newspapers would print
all the press-agent propaganda oil< red
them, there wouldn t be space enought
left in the paper- to mortise the edi-
torial mastheads.—The Ardmoreite.
In the chaste and elegant language
of the author of Peck's Bad Boy, "We
ihould smirk to twitter." Our only
regret is that the professional press-
agent can't see our waste-basket just
after the arrival of his periodical bud-
gets. He would have less to say next
time, and finally quit altogether.
It is impossible to patch up a dam-
aged reputation so that the patch
won't .show.—Stonewall News.
And new reputations are absolute-
ly off the market. So, dear reader,
be careful with your stock on hand.
Good streets and sidewalks are an
absolute necessity in a good town.—
In fact, they come in mighty handy
in most any kind of a town.

with no smoke. The principle of burning oil in this stove is
entirely different from that used in wick burners. The oil
Hows into a cast iron channel where it is conveyed into a
vapor or oil st.eiuii which passes directly into the air mixing
burners where the combustion takes ulace forming the
intensely hot (lame.
The flame can be turned high or low.
They heat quickly and cool quickly.
There is nothing about the burners to get out of order.
The burner i* a very simple device.
They are guaranteed by the manufacturer so we back
