FARMERS IN I BUST IV.
Mr. Editor: -
I am a farmer and wish to say a few
words through the columns of your
paper relative to the democratic nom-
ination for governor, as viewed from a
farmer's standpoint. I want toexpress
what 1 know to be the sentiments of
my community, composed entirely of
farmers, and in doing so, lend the lit-
tle weight of my words tothe strength
of an already popular man.
We, in my neighborhood, and, I take
it, the state over, want to honor-to
give highest honors—to the man who
has steadfastly, energetically and sin-
cerely helped the farmer. To him
whose hand has ever been helping,
whose generosity and liberality have
aroused our admiration and gratitude,
whose business ability has tended more
than anything else to make and hold
for us a good market for our products,
to him let honors be given.
I live near Elk City and do my trad-
ing at that point. There I met Mr. F.
E. Herring, the man of whom 1 write,
and have known him for a number of
years. My confidence in him, won
through our business associations, has
never ahaken or wavered.
In the fall of 1907, during the panic
times when money was scarce and real
Buffering stared us in the face, it was
Mr. Herring, the present candidate for
the democratic nomination for governor
that devised a scheme whereby we were
able to sell our cotton, and corn, etc.,
and felt but slightly the trials which
came to our less fortunate brothers.
Any man, if he is honorable at all, can
always get aid and credit at Mr. Her-
ring's store, until he can get on his
feet and started again.
He is absolutely fearless, standing
invaribly for that which is fair and
honorable, letting no man swerve or
influence him. We know him to be
honest, always honest, with no flinch-
mean a loss of about a million and a
half of taxable wealth. The building
of this road means the holding of thia
territory which means much in the
taxable values in the eountv, and is
of intereat to every tax payer of the
Judge Bonds, who has just returned
from Collinsville, informs us that the
people there are extremely sore over
(he manner in which Claremore has
treated this question and they are first
waiting to see what the outcome will
be before making a move to go into
Tulsa county. The matter is serious
and the people of Claremore should
awake to that fact and see to it that
the matter is closed up with Mr. Jones
THE TAX QUESTION.
Why not quit giving so much time to
complaining about high taxes and seek
a rational remedy for reducing them.
The tax trouble is mainly local as
thirty-one mills of our present levy is
for city and school purposes. The
agitation for a commission form of
government has that end in view and
every tax payer who feels that his taxes
are too high should take an interest in
the matter and attend the meetings
called for that purpose ao that its
feasibility may be ful'y discussed
Then the matter of our school levy
should be a matter of public discussion.
The school district has a taxable wealth
of over one million, seven hundred ant*
forty thousand dollars, on which we
are paying a ten mill levy, in addition
to which over two thousand dollars is
received each year from the state and
county. It will be seen by this that
school board has available each year
close to twenty thousand dollars, and
making allowance for delinquent taxes
has over eighteen thousand dollars.
The present indebtedness of the dis-
trict is $20,000, so to take care of the
interest account it takes ore thousand
dollars, leaving for the use of the
schools over seventeen thousand dol-
Under the state laws, the county has
to foot the bills for the negro pupils in
the district and by reason of the State
University School being located here
no high school has to be maintained
and their taking of eighth grade pupils
alone has reduced the average atten-
dance of the public school which the
district has to take care of to about
five hundred, so it will be seen that we
are spending about thirty-four dollars
per yesr to educate a child in the com-
mon school grades.
We are not inclined to advocate the
curtailment of school facilities to a
point to injure the work of the schools
but we do believe we arc raising too
much money for the number of pupils
attending our schools.
J. Casper Lipe, who is luxurating at
Huntinging Park, California, in a letter
to have the Progress sent to his address,
says: "It is real enjoyment to read
"Oolagah Oozings," "Sageeyah Snap
Shots," and "Ueulah Ideas," and the
doings of the county commissioners,
while basking in California sunshine
and sniffing the sweet perfume of a
Among the new state charters grant-
ed at Guthrie during the past few days

Since my last letter found its wa>
into the columns of your valuable pa-
lter, and since the sun was hidden on
"ground hog day," we have c'tc led
to remain out and sally forth again to
have our way.
Many of our people attended the
Gallagher trial last week at the coun-
ty seat. Sympathy seems to be with
Mr. Gallagher. His neighbors have
never known him guilty of anything
harmful. If he has committed this
heinous crime he has his neighltors
fooled One thing we are reasonably
sure of: that is that there are others
who are guilty. One [tarty has al
ready flown to parts unknown. But
he does not bear an enviable reputa-
tion, and hence we ard reluctant to
commend him to his new neighbors.
Oh, if wicliedness could be eliminated!
And how much better it would be if,
when a man commits a crime, he would
accept the blame, instead of trying to
shuffle the consequences off onto some
innocent man, and then sit back and
laugh at "bleeding innocence."
It was the pleasure of ye scribe to
attend the Rogers County Farmers In
stitute at Claremore lart week. We
sa«v some of the finest poultry there
it was ever our pleaaure to ace. We
also heard some splendid lectures. We
believe that the Rogers County Insti-
tute is on the high road to success.
Why not all the farmers take part in
this work? Its object is to teach the
farmer better and more intensive
methods of agriculture instead of ex-
tensive methods. We heard a man,
who is tn business in one of our county
towns say the other day that this
country was sorely in need of a lot of
good substantial rural citizens. This
fact we do not deny. It is rarely that
any country has too many good citi-
zena. But we have repeatedly heard
this same man scout and poke fun at
the idea of farmers getting together
in any kind of an organization. Wheth-
er it be to make a concerted effort in
selling their products or to study bet-
ter methods of agriculture. To our
mind the silliest man we have to con-
tend with, and the one who retards
the general progress and prosperity of
the country most, is the near-sighted
bnainess man in our little towns who
opposes every effort of the farmers to
get together, either to study agricul-

Did you notice the thunder early last
night? There is a saying, especially
among the fruit growers of Northwest
Arkansas, that if it thunders in Febru-
ary it will frost in May. This saying
is not quite a popular as the ground
hog story, but much more reliable; and
without going into a scient'flc discus-
sion of the case, we are willing to

methods that will give them aaremore on the night of the 8th of

M.0S A LUXURY.
A quarter of a century ago few peo-
ple would have believed that time would
ever come when eggs would be an ex-
pensive luxury, instead of the rather
plebeian complement of the ordinary
mesl. Eggs were hardly more than
the farm wives pin money twenty-five
years ago, but today they are one of
the world's greatest industries and a
very potent factor in the food problem
which is giving the incressed cost of
living investigators so much concern.
The domestic supply is not only decreas-
ing at in alarming rate, but the cxporli-
to Canada are also very materially grow-
ing still further curtailing the resources
