8 AN OVERCOAT

We have noticed the charge in
the press of the state, that is the op-
posing press, that Oklahoma is now
paying to different property holders
of Oklahoma City the sum of #15.000
monthly for office rent for the differ-
ent state departments. Such a charge
does splendid credit to the degenerate
imagination from which it emanates.
No such sum was evor paid by this
state or auy other. The monthly
rental amounts to only #3,500. Thus
during the present year the Citizens
Capital Committee of Oklahoma City
has paid #9,000-leaving a balance of
#17,000 yet to be paid by the same
committee. The state itself has not
paid one penny of the amount paid
The figures are easily obtainable from
the Board of Affairs, they are public
property for the information of the
public, and there is no excuse for the
shameless slander that the state is
paying #15,000 a month.
_The divorce evil Is the subject for
a great deal of discussion. Half as
much attention given to the prepara-
tion for matrimony would do twice as
much good.—Wellington News.
Why divorce ‘ evil”? Which is the
greater evil, divorce—or for a woman
to live with a man whose every word
and act is insult and abuse? Divorce
_or for a man to live with a woman
who Is a continual “nagger”, bridge-
fiend, -or a constitutional “slouch”?
Divorce—oi perpetual disageement,
constant bickering, e dless misery?
Saying nothing of the frequent “stat-
utory” misdemeanors; of the “aliena-
tion of affections”; of the marriages
for divorce and alimony purposes of
the many features of “evil” insepar-
able from the “evil” people and “evil’
purposes of life. It Is only humanely
just to separate the mismatched,
their mating cannot be prevented.—

That may sound almost ridiculous—to get a life-
time’s wear out of a single tailored overcoat. But we know
actual cases where Royal Tailored-to-order Overcoats have
given ten to fifteen years' service—a business lifetime s
service at least.
You may not want an overcoat to wear that long.
But it certainly is an advantage to have a coat built to fit,
to wear and to serve you—and you exclusively. There s
i no friction between your body lines and the coat line that
doubles the wear—and the style, too. $20, $2$, $30 and

—Clark L. Bodkin, of Faxon, Okla-
homa, Is the new man at the Badger
lumber yard, taking the place of
Charley Watkins, who was recently
transferred to a yard in Kansas. Mr.
Botkin Is a very agreeable young man,
and will have no trouble In getting
on with the Manchester people. No,
he Is not of Peruna fame.
-Mason Savely tehe us that in the
civil service examination, which he
took at Wichita some time ago, he
came out with flying colors, making
fin average of 80. That Is what we
call going some, but we are not In the
least surprised, as Mason Is just the
kind of a laol to score high In what-
ever he tackles.
_Despite the fact that there Is
considerable oorn and kafflr In this
part of the country, cattle feeding is
not being carried on as extensively
this fall and winter as Is the general
rule. E. F. and J.C. Burchttel have
the largest number on feed, perhaps
200 head or more, while II. W. Reneau
comes In with the next largest bunch
of about six car loads weighing an
average of about 1250 pounds. J. M.
Simmons has four car loads on full
feed, which are perhaps the heaviest
3-year-old steers that have ever been
fed In this locality. On the 16th of
this month, after one month in the
feed lot, they averaged 1450 pounds,
and the gain for the month was 111
pounds for each steer. This Is a little
better than 3* pounds per head for
each day fed, which speaks pretty
well for shelled corn and al alfa as a
ration for fattening cattle. Mr. Sim-
mons says he Is likely not to market
these cattle until they make an aver-
age of 1600 or 1800 pounds per head.
The market for finished beef oattle Is
good, the top being #9.25 In Kansas
City on choice heavy weights, but the
recent sales of butcher cattle and
stockers and feeders are from #4 to
#5.60 per owt.
—Don’t you know that this “hard
times feeling” Is almost entirely caus-
ed by talk-just talk? If everybody
would begin to talk of the great bless-
ings of life and avoid talking about
what they think they want and really
may not need, an optomistio senti-
ment would be created quickly and
everybody would begin to feel that
they are better off than they thought
they were and they would be. There
is probably not a great overabundance
in the country to be wasted, as is the
case frequently, but there is plenty
for all ordinary needs and we could
not create more by whining, even If
we really needed it for our comfort
and happiness.—Conway Springs Star.

—Owing to the bad weather we
were unable to make our expected
trip to the Pecos Valley, Texas. A
date will be named later when we
will make the trip. Wish to say that
in addition to the splendid proposi-
tions in irrigated lands, we have to
offer some special values in lands not
under the ditch, at 17 to #25 per acre.
This land is close to the river and
close to town. Look It up-these
bargains will not last loDg.
