A man that won't patroni/.e hi
home paper is a detriment to his com
munity. A town without a newspaper
is like a ship without a rudder, and
every live up-to-date citizen owes his
support to the paper. There are many
ways in which you can help to make
your home paper interesting. First,
subscribe for the paper, then when
you are in town drop around and tell
the editor what's going on in your
neighborhood. Tell him all about your
crops, how many pfrgs there are in
the sty. If you sell a bunch of cattle
tell him what they weighed and what
you got for them. These are not only
good news items, but the editor is in-
terested In them, for if you are pros
perous he will share your prosperity.
Fruit jars cheaper than the cheap-
est, at the Big Racket.

THE PRESIDENT'S DUTY.
The Oklahoma constitution, under
the provisions ot the enabling act
which permitted a vote on the ques-
tion of statehood, must be endorsed
by the President before the new state
can be admitted to the union. It is
possible that the President will
reject the constitution and therefore
deny statehood to the two territories;
but it is certain that some higher
motive will prompt such executive
action than the mere tact that Okla-
homa elected a Democratic state
ticket and sent three or four demo-
crats to congress in the election last
The Oklahoma Republicans who as-
sume that the constitution will not
receive endorsement at the White
house because it would admit a dem-
ocratic state to the union are making
themselves ridiculous in the eyes of
the country. The President s duty is
a iudicial one. The limitations of his
powers in the acceptance or rejec-
tion of the instrument are limited to
two distinct propositions—a deter-
mination of the constitution's com-
pliance with the enabling act passed
by congress, and the harmony of its
provisions with the Federal constitu-
Secretary Taft in his speech at Ok-
lahoma City made the President's po-
sition cl#ar. For this reason he warn-
ed the voters against the defects In
their constitution as they affected
the citizens of the state. These de-
fects may be apparent to the Presi-
dent and yet prove no bar to his ap-
proval of the document as a whole.
Statehood is not to be denied Okla-
homa for political reasons. The de-
feated politician who takes comfort
in that assumption will be doomed to
disappointment. If they can present
no more tangible excuse for the re-
jection of the constitution than that
the state gave a Democratic majori-
ty, or that the beer interests are dis-
pleased with the adoption of Prohi-
bition, Oklahoma is certainly to re-
alize its hope for its immediate state-
nood.—Kansas City Star.

fected a cure." For sale bv T. M
