Whenever a taxpayer, living how-
ever remote, visits the court house and
desires any information concerning
county affairs, or his assessment he
need have no hessitency in approaching
our accommodating and friendly Coun-
ty Cleik, John F. Danely, for such in-
formation and the records are kept in
such shape that everything is easily
fouud. We are fortunate in having so
good a man for the place and he has
amply merited re-election. Do not
fail to vote lor so good a man while
the opportunity is aflorded you.
II the news that reaches us hy St.
Petersburg is correct the Japanese
must be pretty well killed off. Every
few dayb the Japs bravely charge on
fortifications and lose from live to
twenty thousand men. According to
Russian logic a retreat is equivalent
to a great victory, They are using the
same tactics as nearly a century ago,
when by retreating they drew the
grand army of Napoleon into the em-
brace of a deadly winter. Japan is
preparing her armies for this very
emergency and every mile of retreat
only adds to her strength. It is ex-
pected that before cold weather the
armies will again meet aud perhaps a
winter campaign may be carried on as
then the Russians cannot fortify on
account of the frozen conditions of the
A Groundless Attack.
We hear some complaint locally
about the action of the county commis-
sioners in building a separate school
for the negroes at Enid and charging
It up to the taxpapers of the county
Instead of that particular district.
Well, the principle seems unjust but
the commissioners are unblamable for
its enforcement. The facts are these;
The commissioners resorted to every
means possible to avoid this burden.
The proposition went in petition back
and forth between the Enid school
board and the county commissioners,
each endeavoring to shift the task on-
to the other body. The law provides
that the commissioners shall erect sep-
arate school buildings out of a county
fund maintained for the purpose and
when the matter went before District
Judge Beauchamp he ordered the con-
struction of the building by the couuty
leaving no other alternative for the
The present board of couuty com-
missioners can not be consistently
charged with extravagance; neither
unwise stringency or incompetency.
It is by long odds the best, most econ-
omical and business-like board the
county ever had and every member
will be returned by a good round ma-
WOBLD'S PEACE CONGRESS.
A meeting of people from all nations
interested in universal peace met
recently in Boston and are putting
forth supreme efforts to secure that
millennial desideratum. If war could
be stopped will the conditions that
cause war be arrested? Can Japan
afford to sacrifice the opportunities
which she hopes to secure for her pos-
terity by any methods except a resort
to arms? From savagery up to our
present standard of civilization, if his-
tory is correct, about every privilege
that man has secured has been by and
through the medium of war.
The interests of Japan'and Russian
conllicts; Russia wants an outlet to the
ocean for her eastern possessions south
of ice-bound ports. Much of her vast
territory is so isolated from the world
that it remains a desolation. She is
lighting for such outlet so that a vast
population can inhabit the great inter-
ior and exchange products with other
peoples which modern civilizatson re-
quires. On the other hand the ambi-
tions of the Muscovites conflict with
the interests of the Japanese. They
have been depending on the fertile
plains of Korea and Manchura to fur-
nish them with much of their food.
If Russia should secure it by the policy
of aggressive advance, Japan would be
so completely shut out that they must
perish as a nation.
No peace congress can adjust these
differences; not while the world is gov-
erned by the present policy of the sur-
vival of the strongest and all the
Hague conferences, and all resolutions
to preserve peace when the vital inter-
ests of two nations conflict they must
meet in mortal conflict aud the weaker
succumb to the inevitable.
War has horrors that sickens the be-
holder and the sacrifices made are very
great yet it is far better thai, famine,
extinction, or slavery. We often read
of great famines in peaceful India or
China where millions die. The high
ways are literally strewn with dead
and dying, who quietly aud peacefully
lie down and die. Rather than con
template the possibilities of such con-
ditions we would sooner hear the dogs
of war let loose. While force contin-
ues to be the world's method of adjust
ment war will ever remain the court
of last resort and each nation's heroes,
those who are willing to face the foe
for her redemption from worse con-
ditions. If ever the universal brother-
hood of man were possible then uni-
versal peace could be guaranteed,
standing armies disbanded and battle-
ships be kept as mementos of a hor-
rible nightmare of the past.
Life signifies war on all opposing
elements, and conditions that combat
life and from man to the minutest in-
sect to cease the stuggle is to die.
Races of men, like species of insects
and types of animals, have perished in
the past before the more powerful
liords who have opposed them.
The present war is the same old
struggle for supremecy, The Orient-
al races are learning that they must
adopt the methods of defence of the
more powerful nations or perish and
it is with admiration we see Japan
rising to the emergency of a desperate
defense for her race preservation.
While might makes right, and while
all law is based upon force, unless the
world should universally adopt the
teaching of the Divine teacher, not in
the theory only but in actual practise,
universal peace will ever remain an
halucination of visionary dreamers, an
imaginary heaven in hell,
One hundred years ago Napoleon
Buonaparte had reached the zenith of
his power. On the 8th day of May,
1804, he was proclaimed Emperor of
the French by a vote ot the Tribune
and Senate and on the 2nd of Decem-
ber following with his own hands he

From that time on until the battle of
Waterloo, with the exception of
short period, his star of destiny daz-
zled all Europe, but as a result of that
battle it sank to rise no more and the
most remarkable man that ever lived
passed out from world dictation.
Justice Crand, of New York City,
says: "Ninety-nine out of one hun-
dred boys between the ages of ten and
seventeen years who come before me
charged with crime, have their fingers
disfigured by the yellow cigaret stains.
I am not a crank on the subject, I do
not pose as a reformer, bnt it is my
opinion that cigarets do more than
liquor to ruin boys. My observation
in the police court is that the boy who
smokes cigarets follows with beer and
liquors. Third, craps, petty gambling.
Fourth, horse racing—gambling on a
bigger scale. Fifth, larcency. Sixth,
The terrible Texas fever that is
transmitted by a tick is no longer to
be dreaded. Beaumont crude petrole-
um was finally found to be of such
quality that while it destroyed the ticks
it did not injure the cattle. Other dips
had been tried that were either too
costly or killed the oattle. Red Rock

What is Life.
What is life?—a bubble dancing
On the sparkling fountain's brim,
Painted by the sunbeam glancing
O'er its evanescent rim.
Soon its soft reflected glories,
Images of colored skies
Vanish—when the haze of evening
O'er the panorama dies.
Life, with all its Bliss and troubles,
Melts like unsubstantial bubbles!
What are honors, what are riches,
What the haughty trump of fame?
Dazzling meteors, vain delusions,
Echoes of an empty name.
What the spangled robes of grandeur
Jeweled sceptor, gilded crown;
What the plaudits won by genius,
What the poet's wide renown I
What but vain and idle breath,
Frosted by the chills of death!
What is life?—a little journey,
Ending ere 'tis well begun;
'Tis a gay, disasterous journey,
Where a mingled tilt is run;
And the head that wears a crown
'Neath the meanest lance goes down
Walk, then, on life's pathway, mortal!
With a pure and steadfast heart;
So that through death's frowning
Peacefully thou mayst depart!
What is beauty but the image
Of the gay cloud in the stream,
Fading from its crystal mirror
With the evanescent beam?
What is pleasure but the phantom
Luring o'er the marshy waste ?
The false mirage of the desert,
Fleeting with deceitful haste.
Trust not in life above Life's sod;
Trust in Heaven's smile—trust in
God! —Isaac McLellan.
