What Is Satisfaction?
It is that which satisfies. When we can get
what we want we are hetter satisfied than
when we are compelled to take what we do
not want. The Blair Hardware Company has
the Goods that gives entire satisfaction, this
is why we never hesitate to recommend any
thing we sell. Our line of Wagons(the Bain),
our line of Implements and vehicles are com-
plete in every detail.
We also have a nice stock of Furniture. We have Harness,
Collars and Pads, a large stock Hardware to select from,
and all are guaranteed to give satisfaction.
We appreciate the trade you are giving us
and assure you we are glad you are satisfied
with the goods we sell you, and we further
assure you that we are going to do all in our
power to give you the service you like. . .

THE GBAT SONG
As Sun* by William H. T.-ft, With
Apologies to the Hon. Champ Cla »k.
By Jams J. Montague la Dally Oklahoma
When I'm sure I grot the vote
The Colonel comes an* grabs my goat,
An' Clapp and Cummins sets on Ted
To kick that harmless quadruped.
Other day out in Columbus town
He's been a kickin' my goat aroun'
Till the critter bleats with a plaintive soun'
I wish he'd quit kickin' my goat aroun'
McKinley gets the cash for me
An' he sends o6t boosts to the papers free,
But that don't help my cares to drown
While the Colonel's kickin' my goat aroun.'
The Southern P. M'?. is for me
If they ain't they'll lose their job3, b'gaa!
E'»ut still it fills with woe my cup
The way that goat does get beat up.
La Follete's gone an' quit the gam?,
An' the way I'd win would ta a shame
If the voters didn't set an' gloat
To see the Colonel kick my goat.
I've made some shrewd app'intments which
Has fixed the predatory rich.
An' they'd crown me with a shinin' crown
If Ted didn't kick my goat aroun.'
I wish that me an' that li'l goat
Had gone upon the Soopreme Cote,
For with tons o'grief I'm plum bowed down
To see them kick my goat aroun.'
Why, even here in Washington,
They've started kickin' my goat aroun,'
An' I'm scared that I will get throwed down,
If they don't stop kickin' my goat aroun.'
is not fur distant when Altus
will have abundance of water.
Deep Well Abandoned
Mr. Nichols, the contractor for
the deep well at Altus has drawn
the casing from the dry hole and
gone to Clinton where he is to
go Chinaward 2500 feet.
The city of Altus together
with several of her enterprising
citizens, has sunk $17,000 in
that hole, and became discour-
aged and quit There will be
found plenty of guys in that
town that will say they knew the
result from the beginning and
never had any faith in it from
the first But had it succeeded
these very fellows would have
boasted of our fine well and
split their throats boasting of the
Mark the prediction, the day

For County C «?k
In preparing my announcement
to the voters of Jackson county,
allow me to state, that I have
been in your midst for practical*
ly 22 years, make no claims a-
bove that of a common law abid-
I am a Texan by birth, an Ok-
lahoman by choice, a democrat
by principal, and a would be
county Clerk by aspirations.
If nominated and elected I
pledge myself to endeavor to dis-
charge my duty in a manner cred-
itable to myself and faithful to
my constituency; to act in keep-
ing with all good precedents es-
tablished by pure democracy; to
reduce the expense of the office
to a minimum; to become famil-
iar with the work of the county
clerks in this and adjacent coun-
ties, in order that I may perform
my duties with dispatch and pre-
Thanking you in advance for
your support, and hoping to meet
you personally, I beg to remain.
Yours very tru.y,
W. A. FRENCH.
Give us this day our daily bread. It's from the
store we must be fed. The bankers won't help the
hungry pain to stop until prospects are brighter and*
we are sure of a crop.
Sears and RoebucK don't know us now. We've
fallen from grace, but next fall we will show them
we can't stand this disgrace.
Poor old Merchant! Stand hitched and feed us
through this squall, and we will do what we "darned"
please with our money next fall.
Who is my neighbor? He is my neighbor who hath
mercy and pity on me. .* We do not blame the far-
mers for the condition we are all in. You can't help
it now, nor can we, but we can work together and
get out of it and stay out of it.
We are going to do our best for everybody and
ask the same from our customers. When you get a
dollar spend it with us, we need it. If you owe us
and can?t pay it, come in and fix it the best way
you can, don't wait for us to hunt you up. I believe
we wilt make a good crop this year, but we have
nothing in sight yet, so go slow and be very careful
should we fail again, where is Johnie?
Yours with the best we've got,
REID & HAWKINS
