TUB SPIRIT OF KINDNESS.
Joe H. Eagle
Soothes like a night wind on a bank
of flowers, or like a flute at evening,
fanned by zephyrs over the hills and
peaceful valleys, or like a mother
crooning to her sleepy babe. So man>
hearts are hungry, so many are deso-
late. so many lives are weak and
weary and heavy-laden, that those who
have sunshine and hope and love in
their hearts, may well speak the kir.1
word or do the gentle act that will
touch and bless such dlsconsola^
ones. It may be a rose planted in "
desert place which a spring of tears
may moisten and a zephyr of prayer
may caress into a fullblown flower <n
love and hope and joy and life.

A GREAT THING FOR MANGUM
One feature about Mangum that is
not generally appreciated, perhaps, oy
our citizens and especially outsiders,
is our inexhaustable supply of good,
pure water. Mangum has been won-
derfully blessed in this connection, and
while the towns around us, Altus, Ho-
bart, etc., are spending large sums of
money trying to find some good source
of supply Mangum pursues the even
tenor of her way, with a supply of
good pure water, probably not equaled
by an other city in Oklahoma.
The Mangum water is fine for drink-
ing purposes, or in fact any other pur-
pose, as it gives no trouble when used
in boilers or railway locomotive*.
Very nearly all he steam plants of the
city use, and the Wichita Falls &
Northwestern almost to the excluslea
of all other water along the line. The
water is loaded In big tank cars and
hauled to Altus and Hollis, where it
is used in the locomotives, and It has
been said that it Is sold in Altus, but
we do not know how true this is.
This month railroad company's bill
for the water used will amount to $169,
a tidy little sum, and indicates that it
Is using a great deal of our water.
It Is said, by those who are In posi-
tion to know, that we could furnish
twice the amount of water that we are
now furnishing, and never miss It
The city is preparing to extend tae
water mains, and by next summer it
is hoped that more of it will be <.' ■
