THE 008T OF NEGLECT.
The farmers of Oklahoma, gen-
erally as intelligent, industrious,
and frugal a class as can be
found anywhere under the sun,
have a few lessons yet to learn
before they make themselves the
most prosperous people engaged
in agriculture in this country.
Oue of these is the importance
of taking care of their grain after
it is matured and harvested.
The rains which have recently
visited the territory damaged,
it is estimated, unstacked wheat
alone to so great an extent that
the farmers will suffer a loss iu
cousequeuce of same approxi-
It has become the custom of
numerous farmers, after cutting
their grain, to leave it shocked
in the field until a threshing out-
fit comes around. Ofteu the
threshers fail to get around uutil
,1 month or six weeks, sometimes
lunger, el«p?eH. During all this
time the quality ot the grain left
in the field is subject to deterior-
ation front mildew and rot.
During Beahons in which the
Milliliter mouths are dry and airv
litiln or 110 damage follows froui
reffort to this practice, but in
».-ft.oii« like the present, marked
l.y excessive precipitation, the
damage mounts up into the mil-
lions of dollars, and all due to
the iuexcusable carelessness in
taking care of the harvested crop.
It is evideut, therefore, that
the farmers of Oklahoma have
yet to learn that the seasons hen-
are ho variable as to admit of no
indifference or neglect in hand-
ling their crops. A rule which
will work satisfactorily in one
season ia u.»t worth u larthiug 111
the next. The only safe rule to
It* adopted is to take care ot
every crop as it matures and
(.tack the wheat in particular at
1 lie first opportunity following
The Timbs has several timet
warned the patrons of rural mail
routes that if tbey do uot keep
the roads in order they are in
constant danger of losing them.
An inspector dropped in on Sny-
der the other day aud drove over
some of the worst routes, and be-
fore the inhabitants had time to
recover their breath had discon-
tinued one aud left a warning
with reference to another. Un-
cle Sam is in deadly earnest
about this matter, as rural route
patrons will find out to their dis-
comfort if they do uot keep these
roads in order. So fix them up
immediately if you still want to
receive your mail daily; if not,
then it's of no matter, of course.
But the Times believes that the
farmers will be very loth to part
with this great convenience ouse
they have enjoyed it. and when a
route is discontinued you will
hear the biggest Howl you ever
heard iu your life.
Some of the farmers who trade
ft Altus have a habit of leaving
their teams half unhitched on
the streets. This is a dangerous
practice, aud iu most, towns
there are ordinances against it.
We have enough runaways with-
out adding to the chances for
more, and every team left unse-
cured on the streets is an addi-
tional possibility. An ordiuance
should be enacted against this
practice, aud it should be rigidly
en f 0 reed.
Poor old Snyder! Her com-
press, which was an institution
of such pride to her and caused
her newspapers so much boasting,
is being torn down and re-ercted
at Altus! Wouldn't, that free^
your feet? Snyder will now have
to build another "phony" round
| house, or resort to some other
scheme of graft to keep the wary
homeseeker from passing by the
Marshal Blain is going to ar-
rest the idiots who scuffle on the
sidewalks. Also those who have
so little regard for ladies that
they must use prolaue or obscene
language iu public places. Good
boy, Dick. Keep it up until
every one of the offenders are in
the calaboose. That's the place
for people who can't obaerve the
ordinary rules of gentility.
Rumor says that a big gang of
track layera ia to lay steel on
the Orient out of Altus in the
near future. The Times truata
this is not another falae alarm.
We've been told that same
story 10 often that we are begin-
, ning to doubt anything with ref-

Farmers will learn some day
that it pays to stack their grain
while waiting for the thresher.
A Building Boom.
A real, genuine, old-fashioned
building boom seems to have
Altus aud South Greer county, if
we are allowed to judge by the
enormous amount of lumber that
is constantly being sold by the
Hounds & Porter Lumber Co.
It seems that everybody who has
occasion to use lumber buys their
bill of this old reliable firm. Aud
why? The reason is not hard to
discover. They handle only the
very best grade of lumber, their
stock is the largest aud most ex-
haustive iu South Greer county,
their prices are always uniformly
low, aud they are nice, pleasaut,
accommodating people to deal
with. It is these things which
bring the buyers, aud give the
lumber buyiug public confidence
in the Rounds & Porter firm. If
you are thiuking of building a
resideuce or adding to oue, or
need a bill of lumber for any pur-
pose, be sure and call on Mr. Em-
mert, the local manager, who
will figure it and give you the
lowest estimate, or render you
any assistance possible iu your
