Compliments The Judge.
Judge J. B. A Robertson of Chand
ler recently closed a term of district
court in Pottawatomie county and
the newspapers of the county, many
of which were opposed to Judge Rol-
ertson at the time of his appoint
ment, are now unanimous in their
praise of his methods of conducting
his court. They have nothing but
good words tor him.—Chandler
In speaking of the recent lynching
of negroes at Cairo, 111 , for criminal
assault on a white girl, the Chicago
Tribune says : "The North now has
the criminal and malicious negro
that it fought for, let it handle him
as best it may." Judging from the
out breaks at Cairo, Springfield, 111..
Springfield, Md., and Springfield,
Ohio, there are a few in those
sections ot the country that regret
that they even thought of ' fighting
the good fight."

being three teachers employed. C.

County Superintendent E. A. Duke
of Newkirk kindly furnished a few
facts with reference to this school
which will answer some of the ques-
tions which folks are asking.
Four wagons are used for trans-
porting the children. Two are six-
teen-passenger and two are twenty-
passenger, but one of the latt r is
now carrying twenty-four. The wag-
ons are owned by the district and
cost $645 delivered. The shortest
wagon trip is five miles and the long-
est ten miles, the district being eight
by three and one-half miles in area.
The average time of a wagon trip
is two hours. The average cost for
team and driver is $39 per month.
On the first day of school, one of
the old country districts delivered
twelve pupils more than its total
school enrollment last year, the other
country district delivered the sane
number as the total enrollment last
year, and the Kildare district con -
prising the village of about two hur.-

naif months. This year, th consol-
idated term v,ill be eight months.
The school levy in one district last
yt.ar was six and one-half mills, in
another three mills and in the other
three fourths of a mill. This year,
all expenses of the consolidated
school will be covered by a levy of
three mills on the property in the
At the present time, the old three

country community around it schools
just as good as anybody has. And
it will be done at less cost than the
old way, which doesn't provide the
schools for country people that they
realize they must have for their
children.—Oklahoma Farm Journal.
Enconraging news comes from the
Panama Canal. The oost it is now
definitely known will be, in round
numbers, three hundred and seventy
five millions of dollars and it is
stated that in four years and six
months vessels will pass from ocean
to ocean. The excavation could be
completed in two years but it will
take longer than that time to build
the immense dam and locks. Ves-
sels of large ton age are already

in Northern Africa or Timbuctoo in
Central Africa nor any other collec-
tion of houses cr huts has a large
population of blacks as has Washing-
ton. But worse than this the Wash-
ington blacks are the most degraded-
degenerate, trifling and criminally
disposed lot of negroes ever assem-
bled. They are refugees from Vir-
ginia, Carolina and Maryland dur-
ing the war or the descendants of
these. Washington has a reputation
for charitable activity. They have
come here to be fed and taken care
of. They are afflicted with the
microbe of laziness and inefficiency.

In no other city can be seen so many
ragamuffin Africans driving two dol-
lar skeleton horses to rickety three
dollar wagons and the contrast of
these with a back ground of marble
palaces is painfully grotesque.

HOW TO INCREASE YOUR IN-
Every able-bodied man who is
ordinarily industrious can make a
good living from the income of
his labor. But it is easier to in-
crease your income by saving a
little of what you are making and
investing it; in other words, put-
ting your savings to work. The
man who has a thousand dollars
working for him can double hii
savings every year. Besides, ad-
versity may overtake one, and
it's a migbty nice thing to have
that other self—one's savings—
to fall back upen. You might be
interested in our time certificates.
