THINGS OTHER PAPERS TELL
Advocating a boycott on eggB when
the farm people could not squeese
an egg from a hen with a cider press,
■hows how ridiculous people can be-
come over matters they know noth-
ing about.—Osage County Chronicle.
MIbb Grace Fitch Conger of New
York broke her leg the other night
dancing the tango. More aerlous, but
different, accident* have happened
to other young ladles from the same
People who complain about the
high coat of living should take solace
from the fact that newspapers are
much cheaper than they were a hun-
dred years ago, at which time they
were so expensive that people who
were not financially well off banded
together In clubB and subscribed for
one periodical. The lirst newspaper
to sell copies at a nominal price was
the New York Morning PoBt.
Headline In a paper says, "Eggu
drop as hens begin to lay." Why, of
course. What would you expect them
to do? • * "Why Is It that some per-
sons will ask you to loan your pri-
vate drinking cup when they would
not think of asking to borrow your
tooth brush?" asks a hyglenlst. Well,
perhaps It Is because the sort of fel-
low who wants to borrow your drink-
ing cup doesn't use a tooth brush.
• • As a Capital reporter came out
of a market the other day he heard a
sarcastic woman going for the meat
cutter: "Well, we won't talk any
more aoout it; but send up thirty-
live cents worth of beef steak, and as
I will not be at home, tell the delivery
boy to throw it through the key
Now that the currency bill has be-
come a law, various bankers through-1
out the country are advocating the
passage of a national guarantee law
to supplement the new currency meas-
ure. While this guarantee provision
was at one time added to the currency
measure it was dropped before the
bill was Anally enacted. The prin-
cipal reason cited was that the presl-

families while meats are so high and must
be made to go as far as possible.

ar.d use crcam or milk to
make a dough less stiff than for
dent and those fathering the passage
of the bill In both houses of congress
thought that, as this was In a way a
special measure, It would be better
to draft a new bill embodying the
guarantee provisions 6nly. Whatever
the reasbns were, many members of
the blinking fraternity are now urg-
ing the passage of the measure
which those in favor of it claim will
complete the currency law, and guar-
antee deposits without any possibil-
ity of future panics.
W. L. Bordette, a train auditor,
and W. E. Zinc, a conductor, both em-
ployed by the M., K. & T. railroad,
were arraigned In Bartlesville Satur-
day on a charge of assault and bat-
tery In connection with the ejection
of G. B. Freels from one of the com-
pany's trains Friday, after Freels had
refused to pay a three cent fare. The
men were arrested upon complaint
of the state corporation commission.
County and state officials say more
trouble will result from any attempt
by Interstate officials to collect a
three cent fare in Oklahoma in defi-
ance of the state's two cent rate law
The county attorney of Washington
county says that all trainmen who
eject passengers for refusing to pay
the higher rate will be arrested. At-
torneys for the Missouri, Kansas &
Texas said where fights followed a re-
fusal of passengers to pay the fare
asked the passengers would be prose-
cuted In federal court.
Thursday the new school code,
passed by the last legislature, and
which controls the entire system of
the state, became effective. Immedi-
ately about 5,000 school district
treasurers went out of office, as treas-
urers of the Bchool district. The
school district boarda will remain as
they are, with the former treasurer
designated only as a member of the
board. All the duties previously as-
sumed by the school district treas-
urer will now be done hy the county
treasurer, all money coming from
the school district being paid to the
county treasurer. This does not af-
fect Independent school districts,
however, and the latter are defined
as those districts in cities of the first
class or incorporated schools fully
accredited with the state university,
and the consolidated school districts.
It is generally accepted in school cir-
i les that the code Is a change for the
better. The Oklahoma Educational
association. In convention last week
unanimously approved the measure.
An incident which looks to most
peDple as being entirely uncalled lor
happened Christmas eve on Mala
street, when two teams ran into each
other, the tongue of one buggy pene-
trating the breast of one of the
horses, killing it instantly. The same
evening a few other stunts were
pulled off which reflect anything but
credit on our peaceable little city.—
They seem to do well in May, ac-
cording to the Bugle: "A bootlegger
said, boastingly, the other day, I
made $500 In one month here the
past year.' You made more than that,
Mr. Bootlegger. You made same of
our young men drunkards. You made
their dear mothers broken-hearted
women. You made the innocent chil-
dren to suffer. You made more than
that, 1 reckon, but you'll get the full
account some day."
We respectfully call the attention
of our county officials who are trying
to re-elect themselves via the publi-
cation route to this note of lamenta-
tion from the Texhoma Times, whose
chameleon political coat is liable to
be "ruint" unless some official gets
busy Instanter: "We have taken no-
tice to some legal publications which
rightly belong to Texhoma, but are
being published in the cohnty seat
capers. • You folks know how w®
stand on all this square deal proposi-
tion in all eevnts."
A farmer was doing business at a
local produce house this week, when
he inquired if people didn't kick on
their weights now and then, and get
fussy if their stuff didn't wel-gh out
as much as they expected. "Yes,"
admitted the dealer, "they do, but
we try to play fair and make the best
of the kicks we get." Then the deal-
er turned to the farmer and asked,
"Did anyone ever accuse you of short
weighing them?" "Law, yes!" Bald
the farmer, "but that wasn't the
worst; they JuBt about proved It on

During the last several days there
have been developing several cases
of smallpox. To date there are four
teen cases, some of them serious, l.ut
the majority of cases are light. The
physicians of the city are very busy
preparing for the disease. The local
health officers are distributing the
mallpox flags and giving instructions
regarding care to be exercised in
quarantine. The last few days have
been busy ones for the physicians to
make vaccination. Perhaps two hun
dred people ha\e been under the

the best and safest method to fight
the disease. The business section of

Liberal Warehouse storage bplldlng
In which was stored two car loads of
broom corn and twelve car loads of
Cimarron valley prairie hay. The fire
alarm was given and the chemical en-
gine was rushed to the building but
the fire had gained such headway It
was soon given up as hopeless to try
to either put It out or control It. The
fire plugs were too far away to use
the hose to do any good. The fire Is
supposed to have been caused by
spontaneous combustion In the ware-
house which was supposed to be fire-
proof. The broom corn was stored i
in one end of the building and part |
of it was saved. The loss was not
total as the hay and building were in-
sured. The building belonged to
Chas. Summers, Lee Larrabee and
others. ThiB is the second heavy loss
by fire that Mr. Summers has suffered
the past year.— Liberal Democrat.

The man from the city, wishing to

then we trollled back to town and

cousin was not Btumped in the least,
so he began telling of some of the
pleasures of the simple life. "We have

other day we buggied out to Uncle
Ned's and went out to the back lot,
where we baseballed all the after-
noon. In the evening we Bneaked up

listening, and not to he outdone, took

said: "I was having fun about that

The editor received a telegram yes-
terday that he had won his lawsuit
over his place on the board of agri-
culture and Is now a member of the
board again. The suit was over the
adoption of the recall amendment to
the state constitution which was
voted on August 5th, last. The con
Btitution provides that these amend
mentfl must pass the legislature forty
days in advance of the election and
this one was passed only thirty-six
days before the election. The suit
was in the district court of Oklahoma
county before Judge Clark. We sup-
pose that the attorney general, who
represented the other faction, will
appeal to the supreme court, but In-
asmuch as that high court has al
ready written an opinion on the same
point we feel sure that they will hold
the same in this case, I. e., when the
constitution says forty days it means
forty days and not thirty-six or some
other number.—Cimarron News

How would you like to live in old
England? At first thought you prob-
ably would think it would be fine and
dandy but that might depend. B. O.
Weaver called at the Gazette office
the last of the week and gave us a
little insight into English life. He \
mentioned some conditions that
wouldn't appeal very strongly to the
average American. For Instance,
there are too many classes and there
Is no way of getting from one class i
to another by any effort the individ-
ual may make. There you find the
nobility, the gentleman farmers and
the tenants. The tenants just barely
make a living and there is no way
for them to get to be more than ten-
ants. They can't accumulate any
wealth and the only escape they have
is to leave the country. Over there
it is a good plan to be born in the
right class for when once you get
Into the world your destiny Is sealed.
No wonder so many flock to free
America where the bootblack has just
as much opportunity to stand in a
high place after a while as the young-
ster who is born into the wealthiest
John Plummer came out from Kan-
sas City last Friday and had three
of his newly Invented subsoil plows
which were shipped here, taken to
the Stanton county ranch, where he
will plow a thousand acres with these
subsollers, using a traction engine to
furnish the power. His plow has at-
tracted a great deal of attention in
Kansas City, where it was manufac-
tured and tested. It consists of one
mouldboard plow, which opens the
furrow, and two subsoil plows which
follow along in the same furrow and
loosen the subsoil a foot or more be-
low the bottom of the ordinary depth
of plowing. Mr. Plummer has, by ex-
perimenting, become convinced that
deep plowing is the thing this coun-
try needs and he Is satisfied that his
subBoillng method will answer the
purposes of deep plowing and be
much cheaper. The subsoiler, by
loosening a foot of boII that ordinar-
ily is impervious to moisture, forms
a reservoir in the form of a long
trench of loose soil into which all
surplus molBture will readily settle
and be conserved. We believe that
Mr. Plummer is on the right track
and that his plow will revolutionize
dry farming on these plains if it is
faithfully adhered to. One such thor-
ough plowing in four years, with or-
dinary plowing between times will
work wonders.—Syracuse Journal.

The Kansas City Post of December
21, contained a UkenesB of Miss
Gwenifred Jones, one of our charm-
ing Hansford county young ladles,
and also an account of her life and
accomplishments, and complimented
her in glowing terms. The occasion
for it was that Miss Jones had Just
consummated a sale of one of her
paintings, The Battle of Doby Wall,!
to the state of Texas, at a remuner-1
atlve figure. The article stated that
she had listened to accounts and
Btories of the battle by Bert O. Cator,
William Dixon an<l others, and the
details were so vividly impressed on
her mind that she painted it as true
as If she had been an eye witness to
the battle. We have all known that
Miss Gwennle was an artist of rare
ability, but this is the first time her
talent has been recognized by the
world at large. Now that her ability
is recognized, we predict that she
will soon meet with fame and fortune
in her chosen profession. Aside from
being an artist, Miss Jones can break
and ride a wild horse, rope and tie a
steer, make a hand at the roundup,
and better still, is a good housekeep-
er and can cook a meal for a dozen
hungry men as quickly as anyone.

Hale and J. W. Ixjng left for the Ca-
nadian breaks Sunday on a hunting
and camping trip. This party ot
genuine sports went prepared for any
kind of game that might be found
this side of central Africa. They had
all sizes of ammunition from dust
shot, to shoot field mice and grass-
hoppers, to elephant bullets that will
be fired in Hale's gun should they
come across a specimen of the pachy-
dermatous mammalia. Mr. Long
borrowed a gun that has the reputa-
tion or killing game so far that Bald
game has commenced to emit a
"loud" odor before the hunter can get
to it. Mr. Cator, who shot buffalo
and caught mustangs on the plains,
JuBt after the Palo Duro was dug,
merely went along; for an outing and
maybe carry game for the others and
Incidentally point out game; while
W. L. Barkley will find his talent In
gathering wood and watching camp.
