One And The Same Thing.
Scarlatina may have a pleas-
anter sound to some ears than
Scarlet Fever yet Scarlatina is
every bit as dangerous and will
cause the death of your children
just as often as Scarlet Fever,
for the reason that they are both
one and the same thing.
The best way to prevent Scar-
Jet fever is effective quarantine
* Regulations. Scarlet fever is a
highly infectious disease. The
germs withstand dryness for
months. They may be carried
through the air and will spread
in the same way that the germs
of smallpox and measles are
scattered. Scarlet fever effects
children especially. It is a diffi-
cult disease to control because it
is very infectious, and is especi-
all difficult to control because
some mild cases of it are not rec-
ognized. These mild cases how-
ever, may give rise to the most
malignant type of the,disease,
and for this reason all cases
should be carefully quarantined.
Yoy may have with scarlet fever,
kidney trouble. Many cases of
deafness with children are due
to the effects of Scarlet Fever.
The discharges from the nose,
throat, and ears, and scales from
the skin, are especially danger-
ous and should be carefully and
Should be Reported Correctly.
It was the intention of the first
legislator*', when It authorized
the State Board of Health to
create a Bureau of Vital Statis-
tics, that the births, deaths,
marriages and divorces, should
be reported to the State Board of
Health that they might be prop-
erly classified and a permanent
This statistical information is
of great value to the state but
unfortunately the law is weak in
several respects and this Depart-
ment does not obtain all of this
information. As an instance
wherein a death certificate is of
value we will quote, without call-
ing names or giving the address,
a letter recently received at this
office. A request was made for
a death certificate for the pur-
pose of obtaining a pension.
Under the law no charge can be
made for certifying a certificate
of this kind for this purpose.
The certificate was made out and
mailed. The party applying for
the same was of the same sur-
name as that of the deceased,
and in making out the certificate
the applicant's initials were used
instead of the initials of the de-
ceased, and we received this let-
ter in return:
Please correct this certificate
as I am Not Dead. It is G. M.
and not R. B. who is dead. Some
one might want to adjudicate my
estate. Besides I was a Confed-
erate soldier and he was a "Yan-
This is simply an intance of
the value of keeping these sta-
tistics, and the letter is quoted
for the reason that it shows the
necessity for their being kept
absolutely correct, and another
reason whj the doctor, in mak-
ing out the death certificate,
should make it out in a legible

Canton Girls Win.
The Canton Basket Ball Girls
went to Watonga last Saturday
to play the Watonga Girls. They
little expected to win the game
but found they were worse scared
than hurt as they won the game
by a score of 18 to 10. The
Oklahoma City Times published
a report of the game and stated
that the result was 18 to 10 in
favor of Watonga instead of Can-
ton. The Times was misin-
formed, whether by Watonga
parties or not we know not.
The Canton Girls won and
should have credit for it. The
Canton girls would like to play
the Okeene girls but the latter
are inclined to have too much
fear in their hearts.
How Cox Got Twisted.
Cantonment, Ok., 11-24, 1913.
An article appeared in your
last issue penned by the agency's
expert and celebrated, also celi-
bated stenographer, E. M. Cox
of Washington, D. C. (a fine
gentleman and a sure good look-
er) about George Ripple working
on a fence at night with a ham-
mer and lantern.
Dead wrong, and if he would
only stop and ask the folks about
these lights and pounding he'd
be bettter informed, etc.
It seems that he passed down
the cow path in front of the'store
one dark night (he should have
been home tucked away in his
new double bed) and saw a light
and heard pounding. Now listen
here! That ligni was a ngnt-
ning bug roaming around Rip-
ple's back yard, and finally lit on
the fence, at the same time one
of Ripple's plugs started to kick
a hole in the barn. That's how
he got twisted.
You see the writer is from
Washington, D. C., and used to
walking down Pennsylvania Ave.
under the electric lights. Out
here in Oklahoma things are dif
ferent, and he I think should be
given the proper tip as to our
many kinds of lights. We have
thunder and lightning, lightning
bugs, lamp lights, skylights and
liver and lights. Tsure do hope
this will enlighten the gentleman.
Mammie, you're a wonderful
child. Geo. Ripple.
Moody Bible Institute.
The Moody Bible Institute of
Chicago is putting new vigor
into the training of its. large
body of students along the more
practical lines of Church and
Mission work. It has called Mr.
William Wallace Ketchum to
have charge of the department,
who for several years, did expert
work of that kind in connection
with the Bible Teaeher's School
of New York.
He will have some 800 students
of both sexes under his care dur-
ing the year, giving them dem-
onstration work in Churches,
Gospel Settlements, tents, out-
door preaching, and in the homes
of the native and foreign-born
All the training of the Insti-
tute in all its departments ii of-
fered free to Christian men and
