JOHN H. TOMMF
J. L. Lyon, who, for the past
two years, has held the office of
City Marshal of Mangum, is a can-
didate for re-eleciion. He amor-
izes us to make this announcment.
-Mr. Lyon is not an untried man,
we know what kind of an officer he
3ias made, and he is satisfied to
present his claims on the record h-
has already mrde.bothas an officer
and a gentleman. An officer who
who has been tried, who his l>. < n
weighed in the balance and not
found wanting, can present his
claims differently from the man
who knows nothing of the office,
3*et bases his claims ou promises
that lie may be willing but unable
to keep. The excitement of a po-
litical race leads men to say things
sometimes that he does not mean.
But Mr. L,yon po< s not ba\ - to
make pssmises. His recjfd ; .r
two years is behind him and he
cannot get away from his record;
but lie does not want so to do

"Mr. Smaua said there wasnlt a bet*
ter or tenderer chicken In his market,
fVank," sighed Mrs. Greenly.
"Well, then, I don't think much of
his market. I tell you, Laura, old
SmauB doesn't give you a fair deal. I
think It would be a good Idea for us to
Jolt him by transferring our patronage
to another market. That old fellow
thinks he can put off any kind of In-
ferior stuff on us. He Imposes on our
"It sounds easy, Frank, when you
say we should trade elsewhere, but
you know very well that there isn't
another market in Wayland and I cer-
tainly can't go into the city every day
and carry out our supplies."
'Well, I can get 'em and bring 'em
out," declared Greenly. "I'll Ket a
chicken for our next Sunday dinner
that won't be made of .India rubber."
"I wish you would, dear," said Mrs.
Saturday morning when he was
leaving the house Mrs. Greenly re-
minded her husband that he was to
bring home a chicken from town.
1 won 1 forget it," he promised her.
"I've got it in my memorandum book
and 111 buy one that can be cooked in
half an hour."
In the afternoon when he telephoned
that he would not be home until late
that evening Mrs. Greenly inquired if
he had bought the chicken for their
"Of course I have, Laura," he an-
swered. "You seem to think I am as
heedless as a schoolboy," he added.
"01), no, Frank, only I know you
have so many business matters on
your mind," said Mrs. Greenly sooth-
Greenly thereupon assured her In a
mollified -voice that he was never too
busy to remember to do things for her.
"Where's the chicken?" she asked
when he appeared at 10:30 o'clock that
"The chicken? By George, Laura, I

tra meeting of the directors tonight
and I never thought of the chicken. I
left it on the top of my desk in the

day. You can understand, can't you?"
"Yes, I can quite understand," an-
swered Mrs. Greenly, almost too good-
naturedly. "Of course, though, we
can't get anything out here at this
hour for our Sunday dinner. But I can
make some codfish balls, and they will
do very well."
"Codfish balls I" Greenly'a look of de-
pression deepened. "Oh, you wont
have to do anything ao deaperate as
that. I'll run Into town the first thing
In the morning and get the chicken I
oan return with It in plenty of time
for you to have it cooked for dinner."
"You're sure you wont mind, Frank?
Por you know It wont be any trouble
to make the codfish balls."
"No, I'd really like to go. I can read
the newspaper* going and conflng on
the train and of courae it would be
foolish to let that chicken lie there
and spoil In my offlce."
"Yea. that's ao," agreed Mrs.
The next morning ahe awakened
her husband a hal(-hour earlier than
his customary time to rise on Sunday,
rte bore the curtailing of his nap with

and after breakfast he left home for
the city with a semblance of cheerful*
Two hours later Mrs. Greenly opened
the door for him with a welcoming
smile, saying: "Well, did you gdt It?"
"Get It? The chicken? Why, yes, I
got it—but I—well, the fact is. Laura,
I left it on the train!"

Murder of Joan of Aro.
The controversy as to which of the
two nationalities has to bear the re-
sponsibility for the foul murder of
Joan Is futile, Irrelevant, and even
childish. It Is true, on the one side,
that the Knglish rulers de.ilred her
death, and were delighted when she
was executed. It Is even probable that
If she had escaped the torch, she
would have been put to death by the
English In the river, or by the dag-
ger. or by the rope; but it Is also
true that it was Frenchmen who la-
sued against her the indictment, who
puahed her prosecution, who pro-
nounced her sentence, who carried It
Into execution. But again I fall back
00 the point that neither the one nor
the other of theee protagonists In tha
tragedy of Joan of Arc can be held to
stand for their respective nations or
peoples. The French who did Joan
of Arc to death were not Frenchmen
