"He Shore Did, Steve."
H. C. Bridgers was here Satur-
« day. He hails from the Western
Newspaper Union supply house
at Oklahoma City and is one of
the princes of the .Grip Knights.
This writer has managed the
Leader now for over three years,
I1UU though some said it would not
last that long, you remember,
atteand this is the third time we have
*eacbeen honored with a traveling
*asfc man's presence. They are all

noon)n Bridgers, and that little story
thoujnvolves one McDowell, the front

morenisplaced in the office "hell-box."

ler alternative than to take
Dr. I up to dinner. Both agreed

4y. uld get the order, while get-
g the dinner.
^hey sat down to dinner. The
preacher said a verse of scrip-
ture; so did little Johnnie, as
did sister Anne and mother, too.
Then it got to Bridgers, as the
scripture reading from memory
was going around the table.
Bridgers had been racking his
memory for a verse, and finally
got the shortest one in the book,
for two reasons-afraid he would
forget the others and then he
wanted the job over with. Then,
when it came his time to talk he
said: "Jesus wept."
It was McDowell's time now.
Mack, as he is known in the
craft, calls Bridgers "Steve,"
though that is not his given
name. Mack had been planning
on the very verse that Bridgers
said. It was all he could think
of. He was nervous all the time,
fearful of what Bridgers was
going to do. At last, when
Bridgers said the verse, the only
verse that Mack ever could re-
member to have been in the
Bible, Mack collapsed. He turn-
ed pale, then that witty, hearty
hale-fellow-well-met Mack went
to the mat like a sack of sand
dropped from a balloon, and just
as he hit the bottom, as Bridgers
last word fell from his lips, Mack
very sadly and weakly said:
"He shore did, Steve!"
FIFTEEN YEAR OLD FLIRT
Does This Girl Live in Ho-
bart—Why Most Cer-
A 15-year-old girl in a town who
has the habit of making the trains
and flirting with the traveling
men succeeded recently in land-
ing a beau. She gaily consent-
ed when he asked to walk home
with her. Her newly found ac-
quaintance asked to be led to her
home and upon arriving there,
boldly rang the door bell. Her
mother came to the door and Mr.
Traveling Man delivered a short
lecture something like this:
'Madam, here's your little girl.
I picked her up at the depot,- a
place where girls should never go
unless on business. I have a
daughter at home about the age
of this one. I am away from
home a great deal and don't
know for certain whether my
daughter meets trains and flirts
with trainmen and passengers or
not, but if she does, I hope some-
one will do as I have done for
you-take her home to her moth-

Custer City Courier Clippings.
Oklahoma is just twenty-four
years old. Yesterday was her
birthday. Twenty-four years old
and hasn't her full growth yet:
Showing the originality and ac-
complishment of the Custer City
youth the following pointed let-
ter from a boy to his aunt is quot-

calf. Wishing you the same,
Have you ever tried the hoe
method of exercise for that all-
run-down, tired feeling? Really,
its fine. An hour before break-
fast, when the air is the freshest

when the dew drops glisten on
the grass blades—but we must

In order that all may under-
stand, we wish to explain that
the editor is responsible for all
unsigned articles appearing in
this moral guide. No one has
the liberty of these columns who
has not the courage to sign his
name to his articles. Neither
does the editor desire to shirk
editorial responsibility by any
subterfuge. Contributed articles
are signed, clipped articles are
credited, and the latter usually
reflect the sentiment of the edi-
tor. For the former we are not
responsible. Now if you want to
know who writes certain things,
look for the ear marks as indi-
cated above. The editor reserves
the right to think and speak for
himself, with all due respect to
the rights of others. He has a
few ideas which are sired by him
even if they should be dammed
by others. — Custer Courier.
The Two-Faced Man.
Nobody likes a two-faced man
or woman. Singleness of pur-
pose is a good thing. Truth is
the pearl of great price.
A two-faced man is disliked
because you never know where
to find him. One face may be
pleasant and the other sour. One
may ipvite you with a smile and
the other repel you with con-
tempt. If a man's two faces
were alike, one would be unnec-
A man is not like a church
clock in a tower, for that needs
four faces to tell the time to the
four quarters of the earth. All
these faces must tell the same
time, or the clock is discredited.
There are more two-faced men
in politics than in any other walk
of life. The people are just be-
ginning to find it out. They play
on the public's prejudices, weak-
nesses and vanities. They ap-
peal to the lowest instincts of
the crowd. They stir up the
mob spirit and then run off with
They make all sorts of prom-
ises and always fail in their per-
formance. They have the audac-
ity to adopt party platforms and
then forget all about them after
they are elected.
What they want are the offices,
fat salaries and an opportunity
to play their favorites.—Jasper,
Shades From Pleasant Grove.
Cotton planting seems to be
the order of the day, but it looks
like it is risky to plant cotton in
the winter time.

The Spirit That Moves.
We people of Duncan, have we
caught the spirit of progress, the
spirit of co-operation, and of civ
ic pride? Have we the good of
our town, our neighbors, at heart
as well as that of our own ? Does
a selfish regard for our own wel
fare dominate all else in our
scramble for existence?
Probably so. Some of our acts
in the past have justified the in
dictment. Not that we aren't as
good as other folks, but that we
are a little behind the times, that
we have never worked together
for the upbuilding of Duncun.
We have never given the town
that interest that we have given
to our own business. We have
apparently, never seen the neces-
sity, yea the absolute necessity
of co-operation in promoting the
growth and development of our
No town grows and expands in
spite of itself. Railroads and in-
dustries are not doing a charity
work. They are not seeking dead
towns which need to be revived.
They go where they are invited
and where they are given invitinsr
It's the town with that spirit
which fighta, which carries things
through with a whoop, which be-
lieves in itself, that pulls the in-
dustries, that makes inviting
fields for railroads and big enter-
prises, that grows and expands.
Is Duncan such a town? If not.
why not?—Duncan Banner.
There often lurks disease.
Desease sometimes originates
with eye strain.
Eye-strain may be relieved
with glasses made to fit the
peculiarities of your eyes.
We make glasses to fit these
peculiarities and the benefit re-
ceived is priceless.
