We wish to call the attention
of the women voters to a little
nutter that happened at the
National Legislature when the
Woman Sufferage bill was pass-
ed by that body; and then after
you have looked the matter over
and studied the same will you
write us telling us what you
think of the two political bodies
that had the work of passing the
bill. Below is the vote by politi-
cal parties at the time the Worn-
ans' Suffrage bill was passed:
For Woraana' Sufferage
Against Womans' Sufferage
You can see by the above fig-
ures that the Democrats had a
majority of the voting power in
Congress, but thst it was the
Republicans that give you the
right to vote.
Another thing we wish you
would look Up is what states
first give the wemon the right
of the ballot, see who were the
leaders in this great movment
were, republican or democratic
We see by the dailies that
Dennis Flynn, is talking of enter-
ing Am senatorial raee on the
repuelican ticket' Dennis is the
man th^t really put across the
free homestead bill and If he de-
cides to enter the race, there is
liabel to be some disapointed
candidates in that race as he is a
man that can go and get the far-
mer vote, as he probably has
has done more for the man thpt
tills the soil than any other candi
date in the field on either ticket
List Still Grows
Among the ne^ subcribera to
the Times this week is Dr. E. M.
Loyd of Lenora. The doctor lo-
cated in Lenora several years
ago and has built up a big prac-
tice in that territory* Will Wett-
engle one of the merchants of
Lenora is also a new one on the
list Fred Hickman, the hustle-
taft real estate man of that place
gave us the necessary ibndS to
bring him the paper for a year.
Mrs. M. 0. Dean of Taloga had
us send the paper to them. Our
list has grown beyond our ex-
pectations since we stnrted the
paper here last November and
we want our subcribers to si
ways fea! as if they are part of
the Timas family and offer any
auggestions that they think will
make a better paper out of it.
A Fine Rain
Dewey county was blessed
with a fine rain last Sunday,
while it was not as large as we
would of liked.it fell slow and all
went into the ground. Corn in
most places is a fine stand and
the busy farmers are busy work
ing the same. Wheat and oats is
looking fine and the rain came
just in time to keep it from
hurting any on the account of
dry weather. Yes we all feel bet-
ter and this will make the dol-
lars grow. It looks now as if
wheat would be an extra good
price on account of the fact that
wheat was ruined by the wind
in much of the big wheat belt
Candidates Tim* To File
County candidates may file
with the county election board
beginning Wednesday, May 6th
this week, andthe books of the
oounty election board will de
open until July 4ttt or thirty
days before the primary on Au-
Not many candidatet have an-
nounced as yet but it is expected
there will be two or three for
each office in the county. It is
almost certain that most of the
present officers will ask to bo
returned their offlssa.

They sold about 100 pails of the

more if they had not of placed a
limit on the sams of five pails to

gun with her husband intended

hurrying through the door, the
gun caught and was discharged,
the load of shot striking Mrs

We understand there is a
move on foot for the Farmers'
Union to buy the Farmers Mill
at this place and open the ssme
up. This would be a good move
and we would like to see it gone
through with not only be a ben-
efit to our town but to the far-
mers as well.
Residence Property Scarce
Taloga is short on residences
at present and it now looks as if
they might be for some time as
as the good school we had here
this winter haa drawn many
people to town to take advantage
j>f the same and we understand
that the most of them will be
back again next school vear.
One thing that builds a town
faster then most any other is a
good school and Taloga has that
therefore with" the proper en-
couragement from other sources
about town we ought to make a
steady growth from now on.
Camp Outfit Burns
Stacy Miller's camp outfit
burnt up laat Monday south-
east of town. He is building a
road in that section and had hir
entire outfit there including
tents, cook shack, bedding and
etc, which all went in the fire.
We understand that they were
cooking and went off and left
the fire burning and it is sup-
posed that it caught from that
This is quite a loss to Stacey as
he run a big outfit and had to
have a large amount of material
to do it
