on. all conversations, public or pri-
vate, and we wish at all times to em-
phasize our devotion, to that grand
old gieneral, "Butinski."
Banks and Bankable Paper — We
believe the socialist party is compe-
tent to run the government from a
socialist standpoint. We therefore
favor such legislation as will require
the banks to cash all our checks re-
gardless of whether we are in the red
or in the black.
The National Badge—'Believing in
and necessarily having had to prac-
tice economy, we advocate the adop-
tion of a uniform bage to consist of
two holes, one on either side of the
seat of our breeches. This would en-
able every man who runs to read the
sign and guarantee instant recogni-
National Anthem—'As individuals
and as a party we oppose the singing
of such old wornout chestnut® as "The
Star Spangled Banner" and "Amer-
ica." In keeping with our practice
and belief we demand that the grand
old song, "Let the Women do the
Work,'" be adopted as our national
antibem; and by the sentiment herein
expressed let every individual mem-
ber of the socialist party ever stand.
SOCIALISTS MEET AND
• CANVASS THE BALLOTS
The socialists of Beckham county
met in the district court room at
Sayre last Saturday afternoon and
the referemdum vote on candidates
for county office was canvassed. The
committeee having this work in
charge simtply reported the names of
the candidates who had won, with-
out giving any information as to the
number of votes polled. This was
doubtless done in order that the so-
cialists over the county might be kept
in ignorance of the small number of
The committee on resolutions and
platform reported as follows:
Woman's Suffrage—We don't be-
lieve in work. Let the women do the
work. The men have all the work
they can do whittling dry goods box-
es and talking politics.
Property Rights—We believe in an
equal division of all property, both
male' and female, with the exception
of the neuter gender, which belongs
exclusively to the socialist party.
'Equal Rights—We believe that all
men were created equal, and with the
object in view of preventing one man's
brain from being developed to a great-
er extent than another, we propose
to take away all incentive to broaden
the mind, and in this way we may
maintain equality even though it be
a brainless equality.
Public Patronage—Wle believe that
all citizens should be prepared to pat-
ronize socialist institutions. The
wisdom of this policy is exemplified
in the magnificent fortunes accumu-
lated by the proprietors of the Appeal
to Reason, who now have arrived at
that stage in life wihen they may re-
tire from work—the height of the
ambition of all true socialists.
Public Monies—We believe in coin-
ing all monies regardless of ratio..
Let the socialist party coin all the
money, and to h 1 with the ratio.
The Press—We are devout wor-
shippers of the "Squeal to Reason,"
and should raise our offspring to la-
bor (unless future legislation under
socialism should declare it to be a
crime to labor) for subscriptions for
that saintly bloated bond-holder and
multi-millionaire who garners in oar
nk-klee and dimes and hsnds us out
the dope that keeps us in a deluded
■tat* of mind.

FIRST SPINAL MENINGITIS.
Ths tfcrss-psar-old boy of Jim A!
• tires oa North Carolina
broSpinal Meningitis. Thursday after-
noon the doctors gave the spinal punc-
ture and administered the serum.
The child is much, better, and there'
are no symptoms of other cases, which
might cause alarm. The thnce doc-
tors in consultation agreed that it
was a thoroughly developed case, butj
splendid medical attention has per-
haps saved the little child's life.

Now, as old a place as Mangum is
not very often or easily startled at
anything. A "new fangled automobile
with a saucus wihistle; a lady with a
Harem-Scarem, or a man in full-peg3
doesn't any longer create the least
sensation. And it is a safe bet to
wager that an aeroplane could sail
over this sedate metropolis of old
Greer without causing more than an
eager or a casual glance from the in-
habitants; but when a pair of com-
mon old plug ponies hitched to a more
common old top top-heavy wagon- sud-
denly breaks forth from tome sequest-
ered nook and begins describing para-
bolos — whatever those are—down
Oklahoma Avenue through Main and
up West Jefferson, the populace is
just about ready to take notice. And
that is exactly what happened. Peg-
top trousers may not scare Mlangum
people, but when tibose horses of
Paces' Ice Department, that had been
used to Granite all last year, where
they were never accustomed to any-
thing but fluffy felts and knicker-1
bockers, saw a full-peg coming down
North Oklahoma, they broke, and
enormous was the break thereof.
Barney Oldsfield, with his magical
buzz-wagon record; Dan Patch's drives j
and the Wright Aeroplane were put
plumb in the shade. Velocity was in I
the very pavied streets that t.it/ae |
hoises traversed. Donum and Nellie J
had started home. All traffic was susr '
pended, and industry and activity t
gave place to amazement and conster-
nation, while horse and hero — the j
other horse — sped on to the goal.
Clint Pace bad some orange pop he
was sending to his wife, and it got
there on a ruab order —all that did
not get delayed by an unforeseen pre- j
vention in the middle of Wlest Jeffer-
son. The run was made in record
time, and all bets were called off. be-
tas K waa a non-partisan race, for
neitter Domino nor Nellie are Serial- (
1sts. aad that distracted the interest.

same price or cheaper?
