The Beaconjiow owns the Clinton
News and the Record, together
with the home paper. The
mother sheet of them all has a
linotype and with this most
wonderful production of man's
brain it is enabled to produce
reading matter at a low cost that
some papers would be astounded
at. And we want to congratulai e
such enterprises, for it is worthy
of special mention.
Sentinel, Oklahoma, May 2, 1913
THE difference between a dip-
lomat and ordinary liar is about
this: One is accredited by his
country, the other discredited.
When you look at the rating
of some folks in the grocer's
book you wonder how they can

the grocer quiet at the same time.
Mkkit Systkm is quite a good
thing to apply to school teaching,
but gratitude to the voters for
our political elevation should have
a look-in, especially if all things
arc equal. There is some merit
It is going to surprise some of
these self-righteous folks to see
some people they had given up
as lost folding orchestra seats in
the New Jerusalem, while the
best they could get was a seat in
THERE was a three-cornered
fight over at Foss over the post-
office question. Mr. Galloway
and Mr. Lawson and Mr. Nation
were in the race. It seems that
Mr. Galloway won. He and Mr.
Lawson were indorsed by differ-
ent parties and it looked like a
shot for the third man, (on a tie)
which was Nation. Mr. Nation
runs the Foss Enterprise, the on-
ly paper there.
Are you old enongh to remem-
ber those old fashioned iron-
stone dinner plates with the lion
and the unicorn rearing at each
other on the shield for a trade-
mark, right in the centre? You
never will get old enough to see
better plates. This Japanese art
we have nowadays is all right to
set up in the china closet; and
it's there on dress parade, but
when it comes to actual work the
difference is about the same for
usefulness as that between a but-
terfly and a honey bee.
The Bartlesville W allpaper,

before us. It deals with Bartles-
ville and her big pow wow to

the State Press Association, and
tells many a funny story about
that affair. The newspaper man
who misses that meet is a full-
grown chump. If he refuses to
go and let his wife go and see
all the fun, he is two chumps.
If he goes and will not take his
wife, he is three chumns. So
there; take that and suffer.
Sentinel has a little over one
thousand people within her official
gates, and two hundred more ire
knocking, not knocking the town,
but knocking to get in. With
this sire population we have no
lsss than seven automobiles that
are doing livery work and they
are doing well, too. And, these
are good automobiles- none of
your junk that has got in the
"rattling good" class. Rocky
has one auto in the livery work.
It seems to do pretty good busi-
ness, but we merely mentioned
that to show you how many more
Sentinel has. This town is a go-
getter in most everything.

WASHITA CO. SPECIAL.
The Dill State Bank Puts on
a Contest as to Kaffir
Corn and Maize.
It seems that our neighboring
town, Dill City, has, through the
agency of it's bank, the Dill State
Bank, been instrumental in get-
ting up a very interesting con-

Social Embroidery Club.
The S. E. C. was entertained
Friday afternoon at the home of
Mrs. A. J. Crabtree. We sure
had a nice time. Fancy work
as the topic of the day. Some
excellent music was furnished
by Mrs. Kirkpatrick and Mrs.
Kimberlin, which was enjoyed
by all. Mrs. Crabtree, assis
by Mrs. Bertie Simpkins served
dainty refreshments consisting
of two kinds of cake, boiled cus-
tard, apple float and punch.
Mrs. Crabtree was elected re-
porter for the club. Our next
meeting will be with Mrs. Champ
Clark on May 9th. Hope all will
be present.- Reporter.

Linger Longer Club.
The Linger Longer Club met
with Mrs. Harker last Friday at
the home of Mrs. Wood Gresham
and there was another good time
for all who attended the meet-
ing. Mrs. Harker, who lives in
the country several miles, could
not well have the club out there
as some could not go, so to make
the trip short for all, she came
into town. The meeting was
earlier than ufeual, owing to the
fact that Mrs. Harker wanted
her aunt, Mrs. Walton, who lives
at McAlister, to be with the club.
Mrs. Bolon enlivened the as-
semblage with some of her usual,
pretty music. Mrs. Gresham
and Mrs. Harker played several
piano duets, which were quite
The ladies did some sewing
and then all repaired to the pop-
ular Surprise Store where a very
nice refreshment awaited them.
There was cream, cake, sherbet
and other refreshments. Mr.
Harvey Gresham, who presides
chiefly at the fountain of palata-
ble goodies and drinks at the
store, had the club colors of pink
and white in evidence every-
where. Going to the store was
an innovation to the club. It was
like having two meetings in one
day, and every moment at both
places was greatly enjoyed.
