The maa who lies awake at
night studying up some pirn of
obtainiug publicity other than
through his home newspapers is
indulging in a foolishly expensive
pastime. If he goes further and
buys sign boards, calendars and
souvenirs or hires an automobile
he only adds to his expenses with-
out a just return. No medium is
as a newspaper or costs so little.
And when the money is spent
with the newspaper man it does-
n't get out of towu, but returns to
the advertiser—which is not the
case when advertising makeshifts
all lovers of the beautiful in na-
ture, and the very fact that it
costs nothing, we fear, prevents
many of our citizens from appre-
ciating the beauties with which
they are surtunded.— Wagoner j
The latest peddler in this
country is the buggy peddler. He
goei around the country—makes a
long talk about the fine quility of
his buggies—and, in come in-
stances makes a sale. This fellow
is selling buggies to our farmers
$100 that can be bought from our
merchants for $72 and hacks for
|i25 that our merchants sell for
$100. If any cf our farmeis are
figuring with this, or any other
peddler for that matter, they should
see the merchants before they buy,
for we are confident that they will
give you a better deal than any-
one else. Give the home merch-
ant a trial on the proposition the
pendler , makes you. Bring the
prices iu that he makes you and
will find that the home merchant
will beat it besides giving you a
guarantee that is a guarantee.
Try them once. They don't fear
the results. You are the same as
any one else; you wsnt your
money's worth, and the home
m-rchaat is the one who can give
it to vou.
Growing like a weed. This is
the best phrase to use in describing
the marvelous development going
011 in the towns and cities of
Indian Territory. The condition
iu any part of the territory may be
instanced to prove that the ex-
pression is not extravagant.
Muskogee has doubled her popu-
lation within the last two years.
South McAlester has increased 70
pea cent during the same period.
Chickasha gained 5,000 of her
8,000 population inside of the last
three years. Ada is only three
years old, and yet has 3,500
people. Okmulgee, Checotah,
Sapulpa, Miami and Caddo are
so busy and growing so rapidly
that their citizens have not had
time to take a census. Ardmore
as a business center is now equal
to any of the cities of Northern

There is perhaps no scenery in
the world surpassing that of
Indian Territory in the spring of
the year. Our broad prairies, ex-
tending in some directions as far
as the eye can rcach, covered with
a rich green verdure, richly inter-
spersed with flowers, make a pi:t-
ure so grand aud inspiring that all
other landscspes become exceed-
ingly commonplace. No, it Is not
monotonous on account of its
sameness. To the right the pros-
pect is relieved by a field of dark
green wheat; on the left is a fringe
of green of a lighter hue, aud still
further on is a border of trees, al-
most black in their deep, rich vel-
vety coloring—complementary col-
ors, all blending with a perfection
that can never be portrayed on
canvas. Directly in fron: of yon,
extending for miles, is a broad ex-
panse of prairie, apparently illim.
itable and entirely unrelieved by a
single object, and the gentle undu-
lations reminding one of some
great lake cT ocean. This beauti-
ful panorama entirely free to
