MeGuire, telling what an honest and afford to pass by, as it signifies double
true man Mr. McGuire is, and the next the wealth for all tbe people, a rise in
day charges were filed at tbe interior
department against Delegate McfJuire
charging tbat in violation of the law-
he has been prosecuting claims in be-
half of Indians and accepting fees
therefrom while serving as a delegate
in congress. In justice to the .Sentinel,
however, we will say that we d not be-
lieve that paper's prai-e of Mr.McGuire
had anything to do with the charges
being brought against him. -Lahoma
That is just our luck. Our head is
silvered o'er with gray hair, not from
age but because humanity has ever
been failing to come up to the standard
that we had hoped for. The mistakes
of Moses are insignificant in compari
son to the mistakes that we have made
in this respect, and we continually keep
repeating the words of the poet:
"'Twas ever thus from childhood's hour
I've seen life's fondest hopes decay;
1 never loved a tree or (lower,
Hut what 'twas lirst to fade away."
No, Brother Mann, we looked Mr.
Mcliutre over before the convention in
Enid and we concluded that he was as
tine a specimen of manhood as we
could find to represent us in the na
tional wigwam. His eyes were bright
as if he had not been habitually staying
up with the boys until morning, and
his nose was not a rum blossom. We
had not the infinite power necessary to
be a searcher of hearts and, in conse-
quence, may have scored another fail-
ure; but when we consider the system
under which we are living; when wealth
is placed above every other token of
agrandizement, then we know that it
can almost invariably buy everything
placed beneath it, when life and virtue
are prostrate in the dust.
Hut let us see whether or not the
mighty lias fallen and how. I'erhapa
th" propensity to crucify our saviors
that have come down the ages with in-
creasing intensity may be the "nigger
in the woodpile" which is causing
charges to be preferred in this case.
Perhaps Mr. McGuire is being betrayed
by a kiss, when a token of love con-
cealed a poisoned arrow. To make
charges is an easy matter, but to prove
them is another adair.
Our constancy to our friends is such
that we cannot but believe them inno
cent until they arc proven guilty, and
we not only expect Mr. McGuire to be
able to prove his innocence in this in-
stance, but to keep Ids record so clear
that if it were a robe it would be suffi-
ciently white to lie admitted to the
realms of the blessed.
J^everflieless, it appears to fie bad
fetish for us to oiler words of praise
for our friends, and from now on we
will use less extravagant terms for
those whom we desire to lie successful.
The question of cotton culture is be-
ing considered by numbers of our far-
mers, and it is still the intention of
nminy to plant a liberal amount. For
this reason we w ill discuss the problem
from time to time in all Us phases.
Dear cotton is the greatest induce-
ment, but a rest to the laud from con-
tinual wheat cropping, which the grow-
ing of cotton will assist in producing
along with other crops, is needed, as
the value of farms, a more dense popu-
letion by double or thribble the presen
numbers, increased opportunity for all
kinds of business by supplying the
world with a staple that can only be
grown in sunny lands.
In the South they raise cotton when
it becomes so cheap that the compen-
sation becomes beggarly because they
know how to produce it better than
any other crop and will not change
their methods of farming. We doubt
if the same can be truthfully said of
Oklahoma w beat farmers.

erless to meet modern leviathans. T: e
mighty "Oreton," our pride of the
Spanish war, would last bat a few mil)
ates before tbe fire of some of our
■, :nodem battleships.
Ultimatums of nations are effective
in proportion to tbe amount of 1;- ent
(force tbat exists in mighty battle?.i:ps
and powerful battalions and not it. tLe
righteousness of tbe case in controver-
, sy, but after long periods of inaction it
iinally becomes necessary to demon-
strate tbe power actually behind the
gnns,the walls of steel and tbe columns
of opposing armies by different nations.
While might governs the world it is
: folly to talk of appealing entirely to
arbitration. All that brings about a
settlement by this meth- d i&the neces-
sary concession by tbe weaker party,
and for this reason .Japan has n< thing
to gain by such agreement. The Rus-
sian navy has never been tested, and
while tbat nation is almost supreme
upon tbe land, upon the ocean she is
an unknown quantity until tried under
tbe fiery ordeal.
Every American is watching with
intense interest the approaching strug-
gle as it is just across the frog pond on
tbe west of us, within speaking dis-
tance, and we will supply them with
everytning they need to fight with,
from Missouri mules to battleships.
Nature provides us with vital organs
of the body that must have exercise to
keep them in healthy development or
they begin to retrograde and perish,
which signifies disease and final death.
The lungs require deep breathing,
prompted by exercise with shout and
song, to continue healthy action. The
heart will grow feeble In action by con-
tinued repose until failure to further
perform its functions finally results in
For this reason country life contrib-
utes to health, and city life is so ener-
vating. The farmer on his broad acres
can securn healthy exercise of every or-
gan of the body. On the farms are to
be found the most perfect type of man-
hood and when the government wants
the best men for the army or navy the
young men from the farms produces
them. With very few exceptions our
best statesmen and business men came
from the farm, where they inherited
constitutions capable of withstanding
the heavy strain to which weaker men
lu these strenuous times it requires
a fund of strength meutally as well as
physically to withstand the strain nec-
essary to compete In the struggle for
existence. The highways are strewn
with wrecked and ruined fortunes of
those who have failed because of weak-
ness. Very few men exist today men-
tally and physically the equal of Rus-
sell Sage at the age of UO years, and
from present indications, unless physi-
cal culture works wonders, the Twen-
tieth Century will not produce any his
To maintain a proper balance, when-
ever there is not sufficient exercise fur-
nished, physical culture Ims become
necessary, which proves that man can-
not, without the severest penalty, es-
cape the divine command, "lly the
sweal of thy lace shall thou eat bread.''
EXISTENCE V8. I80LATI0N.
Russia owns the greatest landed es-
tate in the world. She possesses al-
most one-fourth of the land surface of
the glote, but it is in a large measure
so completely isolated, or land bound,
arid beyond the reach of the world's
commerce that is almost worthless.
Russia is making a desperate effort to
get a free outlet to the oceans below
ice-bound ports in winter on the Paci-
fic and Japan is heading her off. She
also would like a pathway south thro'
Persia to the Persian Gulf for Southern
Siberia, but England heads her off. She
wants Deumark for tbe same reason
and all Europe again heads her off the
sa.ue as they keep her out of Constan-
Japan is fighting for an existence as
a race and a nation. She must have
land for her millions to stand upon.
The struggle has been put oft for years,
but must be fought now or Russia
must go back to her dismal isolation.
ULTIMATUM VS. ARBITRATION,
War appears to be inevitable in the
East, and in a few days, perhaps before
this issue of this paper, the greatest
naval battle in the history of the world
may have been fought, in which much
interest is taken for the reason that all
the latest development in guns and ar-
mor will be tried.
I'lie powerful lighting machines call-
ed battleships and cruisers have been
brought up to the highest degree of
perfection that science can produce.
Improvements in offensive and defen-
sive capabilities in naval production
"Preparedness" is a newiy-used word
by our president, and its significance is
most comprehensive and complete.
Russia and Japan have spent months
and, in fact, years preparing for a des-
perate struggle the completeness of
which may decide the destiny of the
Orient for many years to come.
Young men are schooled at, great ex-
pense td fit them for business, and in a
large measure their preparedness will
decide whether their lives shall be suc-
cessful or not.
Farmers make a success in propor-
tion as they are prepared to meet every
emergency of tillage and maturing
crops, in fact, every phrase of life
nationally and individually receives
the verdict of success or failure in ratio
to the extent of preparedness that has
been made for emergencies, mid even
beyond this life it is claimed by those
who profess to know that the exten of
our preparedness to meet the emer-
gency of death will decide our destiny
throughout all eternity.

Thr Japanese Maie An Attack on Port Ar-
Aniiar That Promises Success -Troops
Landed at Stool.
As we go to press the glorious news
is received that the little Japs are mak-
ing a magnificent tight, sinking two
Russian battleships and capturing two
cruisers. Tbe little yellow* men made
an attack on Port Arthur with torpedo
boats, and the tight was fiercely raging
at last accounts. It is to be hoped that
Russia may iose this port that she
wrongfully look away from Japan with
the help of European nations. Russia
surrenders vessels without tiring a gun,
which is not like American or English
style of fighting, who stand by the guns
as long as they are above water.
Enchantment in Texas,
An enthusiast of Texas gets off the
following in eulogy of the Lone Star
From mountain stream to marshy
fen, a crystal spring in shady glen, from
forest dense to grassy plain, or golden
field of waving grain; from region
where it don't rain much to where it
rains to beat the Dutch; trom central
belt of rich black land to where the
soil is mostly sand, but where the peo-
ple grow enough of very early high-
priced stuff, and please to bear in mind
the which of fate is making them quite
rich; from where the frost comes late
| in fall, to where it hardly frosts at all.
From Jersey cows that give rich milk
, to mohair just as fine as silk; and milk
I reminds that, caves and trees oft hold
the wealth of honey bees; frotn big
black bear to mountain quail, from an-
tlered buck to cotton tail; and where
; the fish beat everything from yellow
j perch to "Silver King;" from China
; tree where mock birds roost, to squat
j pecans where small boost each other in
that happy time, when nuts and pos-
soms are in prime; from short horn
beef to layin' hen; from all that's good
and back again, with flying mane arid
tail upcurled. Imperial Texas beats the

No Wonder She Suffocated.
An inquest was held at Lambeth re-
cently, says the London Daily Mail, on
Irene Jacabi Jenny Jessop Cavendish
de Renzie Selina Anna Susannah Skel-
ton Peter, aged 4 months, who died
from suffocation, a cat having slept on
her face. The mother of this "con-
glomeration of names," as the coroner
