■RIEP POPULARITY FOR ROSES.
Favorite* of Other Day* That Are Now
What become* of the former favor-
ites of the rose tribe? Each has had
ita day and ha* reigned right royally
in its particular period, says the New
York Pre**. All old New Yorker*
must have soft ipota In their heart*
for the jacqueminot. For many years
It waa the roost popular blossom
among rich and poor. A quarter of a
cen'ury ago the street venders sold
hardly anything except the gorgeous
red ".Tack" roaes and the moat fash-
ionable florist had to be extremely
cautious in trying to push another va-
riety ahead of it Then came the
American beauty, which had a long
sway. Bride roses followed in the af-
fections of the people, more on ac-
count • of their association than be-
cause of superior beauty. Long before
the brides and American beauties and
"Jacks" there flourished the Marechal
Nlel, always the subject of contro-
versy as to whether It was a tea rose
or a noisette.
Of a more beautiful yellow than th»
flower named for the famous marshal
of France was the cloth of gold rose.
As Its name implied, It was a rich
golden color. Fully as handsome as
the general jacqueminot, the original
name of the "Jack" was the baronno
prevost. Another gorgeous rose was
the slant of battles. Among the
climbers were the queen of the prai-
rie, the Baltimore belle and the ayr-
shlre. A flower loved for Its perpetual
blossoming was the souvenir de mal-
maison, finest of the Bourbon roses.
The BenkuI was another perpetual and
an attractive bloom. Even the gi-
gantic cabbage rose, though it be-
came the fashion to laugh at it, had Its
share of popularity for awhile. Where
are the roseB of yesteryear?

the milliner at J. D. Curreathers'

The Methodist church is holding
a revival service this week and it
will continue until next. One of
the best so far that has ever been
so far is the general report. The
meeting, according to Rev. Lamar,
is entirely different .from others
< held before in that the old hypnotic
influence of the speaker is to be
superseded by the Christlike feeling
and working of the members. The
meetings are held in the morning
at 10:30 and evening services at
7:30. At the first morning service
several men were in attendance
and before many days had passed
there were many men attending
regular. The conductor of the
meeting, Rev. Ellis, is the regular
evangelist of the Methodist Church
forthis section. He is a strong
speaker and has an excellent use of
the English language. Let us hope
they will prove successful in their
endeavors and build up a stronger
and larger church membership.

Proves nineral Claim
Hobart. Okla., Dec. 24.—John
B. Lenertz, residing a few miles
south of Hobart, is the first man
in the history of "New Oklahoma"
to make final proof on a mineral
The land is located in the Wich-
ita mountains and Lenertz is reap-
ing a large revenue from the excel-
lent granite sold from the quarry.
—Oklahoma City Times.
There is some truth in the above
but it lacks a lot of being the
truth; the whole truth and nothing
but the truth.
In the first place J. B. Lenertz
lives at Granite and the claim is at
Cold Springs eighteen or twenty
miles south of Hobart. The claim
is not a mineral claim but is taken
up under the Timber and Stone Act
and has not yet been proven up but
Mr. Lenertz is advertising to make
final proof. All the same the prop-
erty is one of the most valuable
quarry propositions in Oklahoma
and Mr. Lenertz is to be congratu-
lated for his foresight.—Granite

"They gave themselves away," he
said. "Don't tricksters always give
themselves away? It reminds me of
the two men who wanted to sell their
corpses for dissection. These two
men, miserably clad, called on the
dean of a medical college Id new
" 'We are both on the verge of starv-
ation, sir,' the spokesman said. 'We
are well on in years, and it Is clear
that wa haven't much longer to live.
Would you care to purchase our

"The dean hesitated.

"'But it l« occasionally done,' said
the spokesman in an eager voice.
" 'Well,' said the dean, 'we might

spokesman, 'they gave us $40.'"
Justified HI* Name.
On opening a new golf course at
Tankerton, Whltstable, Eng., recently
Mr. Akers-Douglas related a good
story. A golfer at Hale had an irritat-
ing experience with a local caddie. He
followed so closely, and was so anxious
to please by intelligent anticipation,
that the player had several narrow es-
capes of severely disfiguring him.
After a tedious and unprofitable round
he paid blm off, gave him his lunch
ticket and threepence for cleaning his
clubs, and addressed him: "You know
you are not quite perfect as a caddie.
There is room for improvement. But
as an agent for an accident Insurance
company you are pretty hot stuff.
What Is your name?" The caddie, a
stolid-looking and hitherto silent
youth, moved, like Balaam's ass, by
the exigencies of the situation, opened
his mouth and replied, "Mustard!"
