SPECIAL SALES DAY
PROVED BIG SUCCESS
Waurika, Okla., April 5.—Good
weather, plenty of advertising
and premiums aggregating $500
were responsible for a crowd of
8,000 attending the first of Wau-
rikit's First Mondays, at which
time the merchants of the town
offered special bargains. Com-
plete arrangements had been
made to take care of the large
crowd and there was no confu-
sion usually incident to special
days of that nature.
This day is but the beginning
of a series of special days which
will be the first Monday in each
month. Much satisfaction was
felt over the fact that the crowds
came from long distances.—
The above was clipped from
the Oidahoman and shows what
other towns can do. Why not
Madill have a special sales day,
and also a county fair this fall?
THE PROTECTIVE TARIFF AS IT IS
APPLIED TO THE FARMER
(Adapted from the French of Bastiat)
A Republican Parmer of Okla-
homa raised with great care and
labor a tine crop of cotton.
In the joy of his success he for-
got, the toil and sweat, the cotton
had cost him and his family.
"I'll sell some," he said to his
wife, "and with the proceeds, I
will buy a carpet for our bare
The Republican Farmer car-
ried his cotton to his market
town, and there met an Ameri-
can and an Englishman.
"Sell me your cotton" said the
American, "I'll give you seventy
five yards of carpet for it."
"Sell it to me," said the Eng'
lishman, "and I will give you one
hundred yards of carpet, for we
Englishmen can make carpets
cheaper than the Americans, be'
cause our wool is not taxed."
But a custom house officer,
standing by said to the Republi-
can Farmer, "My good man,
The people out in Tyler and
and McMillan country are hav-
ing no little trouble in keeping
the road opened leading to Ma-
dill. During the winter the
road was opened on the section
lines and considerable work was
done in getting the road in con
dition to travel. Later the road
was fenced up and no small
Pupils* Cozy Corner
Well Cozy Corner readers and contributors, it seems that every
week this corner improves. We are proud of it and the success it
has made. Some predicted a failure for us in this undertaking but
we have been associated with the boys and girls too long and know
them too well to have entertained such an idea. Its a big success.
Aunt Mary comes with a fine letter to the girls this week. We
know she had it in store for you. Read it.—Ed.
amount of trouble has since come
up over this matter. Two parties
nave been prosecuted for opening
the road but came clear, and th
Board of County Commissioners
have since been sued by the
party owning the land on either
side of the line. Now, it occurs
to the Democrat that the road
should be opened. Those peo-
ple who live in that country
must have some way to get to
market to do their trading.
There is no use of talking about
one man fencing communities
away from town, many of them
away from their post office away
from a doctor, and fence a school
house up in the middle of a large
field. No sir, they wont stand
foritand no man with reason
can blame them for it. But
would it not be better for some
concessions to be made and a
compromise reached and likely
some serious difficulty averted.
make your exchange if you
choose with the American, but it
is my duty to prevent your trad-
ing with the Englishman."
"What!" exclaimed the Repub-
lican Farmer, do you wish me to
take seventy five yards of Ameri
can carpet, when I can get one
hundred yards from England at
the same price."
"Certainly, don't you see that
America would be a loser if you
were to receive one hundred
yards instead of seventy five?"
"I don't understand this," said
the Republican Farmer.
"Nor can I explain it," said the
custom house officer, "but there
is no doubt of the fact; for the
Republican Party says so. So
also says President Taft. And
numerous Republican Senators,
Congressmen and editors agree,
that a people is impoverished, in
proportion as they receive more
returns for any given qualities
of produce they sell."
Thus having been protected (?)
by the Republican Tariff, from
the Englishman who offered him
one hundred yards of carpet for
his cotton, and the Republican
Farmer was obliged to trade
with the American fur seventy
Consequently his wife carpeted
but three rooms. Were he al-
lowed to buy from the English-
man she could have carpeted
four, for the same price. This
Republican Farmer and his wife
are still puzzling themselves, to
discover how it can happen, that

It is. now that I come to write
of the world fairy land girlhood

Does in the world live a woman
so cold or a man so stern that is
not made glad by the presence
of a sweet, frosh, and pure mind

you from the laughing babe in
cradle to the white-haired father
in his old armed chair.
There is more inspiration in
your cherry voices than there is
melody in the song birds warble
or in the hum of the babbling

If evil ir unbecoming thoughts
skip into your minds root them
out as persistently as yon root
the weeds from your flower beds.
You know if you let the weeds
take your flower bed butfewif
any, blossoms will bloom. So it
is with your minds girls if you
allow wicked thoughts to take up
their abode all loveliness dies,—
you have lost your birth-right —
you have fallen. Do not deceive
your-selves with the thought that
you can house ugliness in your
hearts and with a smiling face
make us believe thatyou are good.
You may deceive us to-day but
to-morrow your real self will be
discovered then, ah! then pity
takes the place of love and you
are no longer a pact of the worlds
God bless our girls.

Hopkins county, who was ex-
pelled fron the Texas Senate a
short time back at tin election
held April the 3d was returned
to that body by a vote of about

Thomas just has the backbone to
stand by the charges he made it
may have a wholesome effect on

Now is the time to get your
shoulder to the wheel and give a
boost for Madill, the "Oil City."
A $24,000 school building for
Madill during the Summer is a
certainty and some paving on tiie
side walks and a commodious
hotel arc strong probabilities.

industriously about the business
he has in hand, and uses economy

quickly, but he will ultimately
succeed, and will always have

were mistaken. You said boys
didn't think about anything ex-

am a boy and I like grammar,

don't think about those three all
the time, 1 also like arithmetic,
