A negro in Tahlequah applied to
register on the voting list. He was
to read from the statut« that, "ex-

another with his consent, induced by
a wrongful color of official right,"
with which request the negro <om-
plied When he was asked to explain
what he had read he answered in
this wise: I have a little home In
Tahlequah which cost me 1500. This
is its fair raah valuation and It was
so returned to the assessor The
State Hoard of Equalization raised
the valuation to $750. The tax fol-

names of candidates for county offic-

West in reply to a number of inquir-
ies in regard to the election of such
officers. The question had been
raised in nearly every county in the
state, and there was a variety of
opinions as to whether or not the
Heme* of candidates for membership
of the political committees should
appear upon the ballots. Hen Riley,
secretary of the state election board,
has Insisted that the name* should
go on The attorney general has
alBO ruled that voters in primary
elections are not bound by their dec-
laration of political faith but can 'all

stance, a voter may not vote a demo-

The government report for Okla-
homa by Weather Reporter Slaugh-
ter for the month of June is interest-
inn reading. We are apt to make
mistakes In our judgment of the
weather and rainfall unless we watch
the weather reports. We note that
the average temperature for the
month at Oklahoma City was 74.8
degree*, while that of June. 1911.
was 84.1. A daily average of 10 de-
grees le*a heat than that of last sum-
mer Yet It was not much cooler
than the average June which is 7T..7.
The rainfall figure* are particular-
ly instructive In Oklahoma City
the June rainfall was 4 7". inches,
and In June. 1911, It was but 0.26
inches, a shade over a quarter of an
ln< h So we hail eighteen times as
much rain as the last June. The
normal rainfall for June is 3.07
inches The coolest places In the
Ktate were Kenton. Hooker and Oak-
wood, the hottest was Ardmore The
heaviest rainfall was at Meeker, 9.30
inches: the least rainfall was at

of its negro citizenship, more *han
a hundred negT'-es having been dlrv.
ea out by the white citizenship The'
method employed was an attack,
following a warning on the negro
section in whi b 2*0 shots were fired
but to one killed or injured. Most
of the negroes, aceord'ng to promi-
nent white men. were introduced
by the loal ssw mill as laborers,
against the protest of white men.
Two weeks ago it was de< ided that
they no longer were wanted, and
notice was posted advising the ne-
groes to leave the town with death
lb the penalty for staying Some of
the negroes, about fifty in all. left
soon sfter the noti'e but the saw
mill company urged others to stay
and It was reported that It armed
them with fifty rifles This report
annot be affirmed and is not denied
i but no arms were used by the ne-
groes Following the attack on the;
section, most of the negroes hid in j
their homes until the shooting ceased
! and then hurriedly left town, all of
them on foot or in buggies They did
not wait for trains. Friday not one;
is left, but It Is feared they may re-1
turn, and to provide against attack,
a large amount of ammunition has
, been ordered by the white men here. J
The negroes are gathered in other,

One day last week while I was
' busily engaged in sowing bran mash i
'which had been thoroughlv mi.dj
with white arsenic dissolved In mter
i ar.d sweetened to the taste with sor-1
I ghum lnolasse*. and was making a
i mental calculation of the millions or i
j rrasshoppers that I would murder.!
Pick Napier came riding across my
i alfalfa field looking as blue as a fat
turkey two day* before Thanksgiv-j
Ing. He wanted to know if I Verej
: sow ing my wild oats.
I have since thought that if 1
! had been I would have seen greater
] results He *aid that he had just
I(MM fro* '"barley Crowley's over
on the Palo Duro in Texas. He had |
! heard that Charley was feeding off!
1 a fine lot of grasshoppers, but on in-:
vestlgating he found that he did
j not have one grass hopper to our j
'hundred He wanted to know If my I
i mixture was killing any of them. I I
told him of some of my observations
After sowing a quantity of it I
went l>ack and found a number of >
hop|iers feasting on it. I noticed an I
old gray road hopper and a large
yellow-vested hopper busily munch-
| ing away at the bran mash. So 1 j
| sat down and watched them for near-
ly a half hour, expecting every minute i
to see them sicken and stagger, and I
In a moment pass in their checks, to
the happy hunting ground, while I j
would be gloating over their dead
bodies But not a single gloat did
I get to enjoy After eating like a I
Weary Willie who had not tasted I
pie for two days they stretched I
themselves and with a satisfied look,
flew aw ay to report to their friends |
on the good things in Texas county.
Di< k said that would be entirely
I ton slow for him for he had a fine!
tield of alfalfa that was purple with
blossoms and making preparations |
i fur a bumper seed crop, but in about j
three days those hoppers cut every
(last blossom to work into bouquets
and buttonaires He went on to see!
If R M Scarlett had succeeded in
discovering a sure quick kill remedy. I
I have even fed that mixture to
mice: and the flies seem to enjoy the j
taste of it. yet not a single death
have I been able to trace the cause j
' to that mash.
1 have wondered if the Guymon
druggist hadn't made a mistake and ■
! given me ladies' face powder instead!
i of arsenic No. thank you. I'm not |
j going to take some of it to see. I'm
willing to give the druggist the ad-
vantage of the doubt He said that |
what I bought was enough to kill,
ifi.ooo men. but if I remember, he j
didn't insure it to kill a single
grasshopjier, especially alfalfa fed
