Handsome Medals Offered
by the American Jersey
Cattle Club and Other
Four special premiums of the Amer-
ican Jersey Cattle club for Jersey
exhibits at the Oklahoma State Fair
and Exposition, Oklahoma City, Sep-
tember 24 to October 5, have just
been announced by Secretary I. S.
Mahan. The classifications and
awards were not received in time for
the big 1912 premium list. Condi-
tions of the specials, as outlined by
R. M. Gow, secretary of the club, are
Class 1—Grand champion bull, if
exhibited by his breeder and owner,
gold medal, value $20, suitably in-
Class 2—Grand champion female,
if exhibited by her breeder and own-
er, gold medal, value $20, suitably in-
To drive the flat bed of a print-
ing press-fi i 'h and back looks easy
enough. 1; there were no more
than reciprocation to provide for
the task would be simple; with its
complications it is in fact one of
the most difficult undertakings in
mechanics. T h e patent office
records show hundreds of devices
;'or the purpose, out of which scar-
cely half a dozen are of practical
use or in existence now. The bed
itself in a press of medium size may
weigh a thousand pounds; a full
orm may weigh three hundred
more. This combined weight must
travel about two hundred feet a
minute, and must be stopped and
started in the opposite direction
jerhaps sixty times while doing it.
Running at full speed to within a
'ew inches of its extreme travel,
the thirteen hundred pounds must
then slow down, stop dead, be re-
versed, and within the same few
inches must attain full speed again.
The slowing down and starting is
in so short a distance and time that
the eye does not note the change in
speed, is conscious only of the
change in direction.
A ten-pouud hammer traveling a
short distance rapidly upset: i
mass of metal in welding and shap-
ing. and does the work of many
men. The thirteen-hundrsd pound
hammer of bed and form traveling
rapidly in a printing press must not
upset anything; its stop and re-
verse must be smooth easy, with-
out noise or far or apparent effort.
One wi 1 make more clatter in
moving a three-ounce paper weight
on his desk than a modern press

bed and form at high speed.

Pond Creek, Oklahoma,
August 27, 1912.
I desire to state, in reply to an
editorial in the News of last week
that I am not a Bull Mooser and
have not joined the National Pro-
gressive party, and have not auth-
orized him or any one else to make
such statement. I believe a man
can be progressive in the Republi-
can party. I have been affiliated
with that party all my life and do
not desire to ride out on the old
Bull Moose in my old days.
A. J. Rentfrow.
Mr. Rentfrow is to be contragu-
lated upon the frankness with
which he states his position. He
the candidate of the Repub-
lican party of this county for mem-
ber of the lower House of the Legis-
lature. He does net believe iu
sailing under false colors. Will the
other candidates of that party be
as frank? Let's hear from all of
them. The people have a right to
