Speaking of vacations—everybody
takes a vacation now—why, even the
post master has his sometimes. Here-
tofore, it has been his won't to loaf
around the postoffice and smoke and
tell people that he is taking a vaca-
tion. But it is different this year-
he is having his now—'way back east
—the home of feuds and presidential
candidates and other things. Also
the editor of The Progress gets one
It is said one needs a vacation most
the day after one has one.
And really, the best experience that
a vacation brings is coming back
home. You stay away two weeks and
it seems like two years. You come
back, the train stops, you see people
that you know, the best people on the
fare of the earth. You say to your
wife, "There is Bill on the corner."
You grin all over, walk up to Bill and
say, "Hello, Bill, how are you, and
how is everything and how have you
been putting in the time since I have
been away?" Bill turns and gives
you a surprised look and replies,
"Why, have you been away?"
Gee, we thought the town had near-
ly stopped because we were out of it.
Don't that let you down some? You
are not such-a-much as you thought.
So you people who are away now on
that vacation, don't come home so
chesty because you rode on a steam-
boat or had a meal in a dining car.
The old town is jogging along while
you are away anil so when you come
"home just take your place and get
busy again and work so that you can
take another one next year.

The prevailing excuse for the high
cost of living is the increase in wages
paid and the shorter hours for labor
That once well-known domestic help-
er, the hired girl, has almost disap-
peared and the few specimens still in
captivity are now asking for the
eight-hour day enjoyed by her sisters
in the mills and factories. All the
well-known arguments are being pre-
sented and it is more than likely that
the "maid," who has succeeded the old-
fashioned "hired girl." will win out.
And suppose she doe.-., the problem will
Those who can afford to keep ser-
vants may be able to adjust their
household arrangements to meet the
conditions proposed, but how about
the households where no servants are
kept* We are talking now about more
than ninety-five per cent of the homes
in Claremore, where the housework,
whether pleasure or drudgery, is done
by mother. There is no eight-hour
day with Saturday afternoon, all day
Sunday and every evening off for this
slave to labor. She still is re«iuired
to be stirring long before the whistle
blows in the morning, that her man
may be sent away to his day's work
with a good breakfast. All day long
she toils in the kiachen or about the
house and when her man has finished
his eight-hour stunt on the job, mother
must greet him at home, not only with
a smile, but with a well-cooked meal.
It is not necessary to mention the
endless round of little and big things
that fill in her daily program. She
is at work before the bread-winner
starts his day, and long after he has
finished his evening meal and sits
down with his pipe and newspaper
she can be heard clearing things away
in the kitchen. At last when she is
through and has wound the clock she
comes into the sitting room and tack-
les the mending, piled high in the
No eight-hour schedule for mother,
that loyal, patient, tireless soul who
is the very rock upon which the re-
public is founded Day in and day
out she toils that her husband and her
son and daughters may know the joy
and comfort of a home.
When the day has been reformed
for all others, and everything settled
to the demands of the workers for
wages, some consideration should be
tfiven to mother, who works for her
board and clothes. Why not a moth-
er's strike? No, it will never be, for
the true mother receives compensation
beyond all wage scales in the joy and
satisfaction in seeing her home well-
kept and her loved ones happy.
saved There remained more than two
billion dollars of unfulfilled contracts
to he cancelled or liquidated. On
these, it was estimated, approximate-
ly two billions of dollars would be
saved A total saving of more than
three billions of dollars will accord-
ingly have been effected.
Republicans in Congress are at-
tempting to take the credit for these
savings. New appropriations are
much smaller, and the departments of
the Government are sending to Con-
gress estimates greatly below what
would have been necessary and what
were requested before the armistice
was signed. In their claims of "econ-
omy" and their hoasts about "re-
trenchment," republicans in Congress
are attempting to deceive the public
into believing that if it had not been
for their precautions, the appropria-
tions would have been vastly larger
As a matter of fact, it is the depart-
ments, and particularly the War and
Navy departments, that are showing
the way to lessen appropriations.
EXCISE HOARD MAKES COUNTY
The County Excise Board which is
composed of the following county of-
ficers, U. S. .Jefferies, Edward Jor-
dan. .Mack R Shank, J M. York, W
II. Rogers. W. J. Eldridge and Mrs.
A. K Ross, at their meeting Thurs-
day morning completed the levies, by
unanimous vote for the following
items on the county estimate: For
three bridges over the Verdigris river,
one at Inola, one at Sageeyah and the
cither east of Oolagah at a total cost
of $S*i.000.00 for the three $42,000 .00
of this amount having to be raised
this year by direct levy. $:i,000.00
was jillowed for the Free Fair. Every
indication is that the county levy will
be higher than for several years past,
as the 1919 legislature raised the sal-
aries of all deputies of the county and
imposed several new items to be rais-
ed by taxation, such as the registra-
tion oi vital statistics and treatment
of veneral disease, which have hither-
to not b?en provided for- and the fur-
ther fact that in the loss of the terri-
tory to Tulsa county cut our valua-
tions something more than $2,f>00.000.-
00. While the county levy will un-
doubtedly be higher, with the above
facts before you. the Excise Board
leels that with the excellent improve-
ments to be made that the people will
not kick as long as they know they are
getting value received for the expen-
Some reactionary republican Sena
tors would have us—and all the world
besides—believe that the only interest
this country has in foreign nations is
interest on American investments.
And still they seem to forget that
peace must precede prosperity, here
and abroad; that we can not recover
our trade with Europe until, with our
help, Europe has re-established peace-
ful, permanent governments.
STATE VETERINARIAN HERE
Dr. R. C. Smitn, Deputy State
Veterinarian, asks the co-operation of
the livestock men of this vicinity in
preventing the spread of Anthrax
from the farms that are already in-
fected with the disease.
Authrax is an acute disease caus-
ing the death of over 70?r of all ani-
mals affected. Practically all live
stock may have the disease and it is
possible for man to contract it. It
is a germ disease and may be trans-
mitted from one farm to another by
an animal infected with the disease
near the line fence and some of the
discharges from it getting on the pas-
ture of adjoining farms or by buz-
znrds, dogs or coyotes visiting the
carcass of an yiimal that had died of
Anthrax and then visiting neighboring
pastures, carrying the infection with
them. Flies also carry the infection
from one animal to another.
The length of time that land re-
mains infected after an animal germ
form spores (seed) which live in the
ground for an indefinite period of sev-
eral years and are liable to cause an
outbreak of Anthrax on the farm at
any time in future years.
To prevent the spreading of this
Up to the last of June, the War De-
partment had liquidated war contracts
amounting to approximately a billion
and a quarter dollars. By this pro-
cess $1,279,158,000, or 86.2 per cent
of the amount of the contract?, wr.s

"Increases the efficiency of the engine;

Causes the engine to run more sweetly."
In othar words, for automobiles, motorcycles, motorboats, airplanes, etc., OILDAG:

the cylinders and affording mow perfect valve seating.) In a lest

2. PREVENT WEAR. (By forming a (.raphoid (anti-.nc-

and that the service and durability of the car will lie greatly in-
3. REDUCE CARBON DEPOSITS. (Most t irbon conies from
the oil decomposed). This decreases the liability of preignitinn and
reduces the likelihood of injury to the cylinders through the abrasive
action of the carbon. _

the compression in the cylinders, a higher explosive force is develop-
ed, consequently less "gas'' is needed for a given power generated)
