of the sudden fall of good stuffs.
In these parts, the fall was not
severe enough to make a bruise.

The fight for the postmastership
at Anthony seems to be definitely
settled, Mr. W. P. Olmstead having
been endorsed by Congressman
Madison. While the writer had
hoped to see Mr. Blackburn get the
recommendation, we can say that
in the choice of Mr. Olmstead the
patrons oi the Anthony postoffice
have made no mistake.
The Anthony Bulletin says:
"Thinking so much it so. . There is
much truth in that statement. Peo-
ple can often thinks themsePes
well or sick, rich or poor, famous
or infamous, happy or unhappy,
good or bad." ” Perhaps they can.
But how about thinking your rent
is paid; that don’t help much.
You’ve got to make the other fel-
ow think it. A fellow may think
the lamp post is drunk as a fool,

Office in H. P. White Bldg.
Some of the Republican papers
throughout the state have howled
and howled about the capitol bus-
iness. They said it was a steal
that it would cost the taxpayer
thousands and thousands of dollars,
they said that the promise of a
free capitoi was all bosh, and that
irffer LW biff was passed the Okla-
homa City booster* would lie down
on the people, and make them
build their own capitol. Now after
the legislature passed the bill, and
bound the people of Oklahoma City
to do as they agreed to do, some of
these same papers say it is a steal
from the Oklahoma City peop’°.
The Vidette goes so far as to say
that Governor Haskell's insistent
demand that Oklohoma City keep
her promises, is a bribe.

HOBBY FASCINATING TO MEN
PhHatollgt Find* Large Field for Hla
Comer of Earth.
The discovery of a solemn man’s
hobby softens his austerity. So there
is something very human and Interest-
ing In the convention recently held
here of the nation’s philatelists—seri-
ous men brought together by the com-
mon fascination exercised by little bits
of colored paper.
Like every other hobby which In-
volves collecting something, the fun Is
not half so much Ln possession as In
the eternal quest. Whole volumes of
odd and beautiful labels, given as a
receipt for postage paid, are not as In-
teresting as the rare and illusive speci-
mens which are yet to be corralled.
While the small boy collector has his
heaven in grandmother’s garret, shear-
ing the old labels fiom long treasured
epistles, the full-fledged enthusiast
finds a larger field for his activities,
and the farthest corner of the earth is
not too remote to stop his quest. There
is more in the hobby than one might
suppose. History, geography and na-
tional politics form a groundwork for
an Intelligent pursuit of the pastime.
New Zealand and Hawaii will show
you landscapes upon their stamps; a

INVENTOR OF DIVING ARMOR
Parts of His Device That Have Not
Been Improved Upon From
Among pioneer inventors to whom
the diving dress in its present,per-
fected form owes so much was Wil-
liam Hannis Taylor. The previous hit
or miss attempts were superseded by
the Taylor patent of June 20, 1838, in
which the essential feature was the
valve allowing the emission of con-
sumed air without an influx of water.
Previous to this time, the Scientific
American says, there had been the
diving chests and the diving bell, of
which the latter, introduced by Smea-
ton in 1778, was the safest and most
practical device for submarine ex-
ploration. The diving bell has been
developed alongside of the diving
dress and is still in use.
The general appearance of Taylor’s
diving armor was like that of a knight’s
suit of mall, except for a prominent
bulge in the body piece. A large pipe
coming down from the surface and
penetrating the body pleoe at the
bulge supplied the fresh air, while a
short pipe entered the body piece on
the other side, and was provided with
a valve which carried oft the exhaust.
Although diving armor has now
reached Its perfected state this valve
has never been materially improved
People genarallv are wondering
why Taft, a Republican, appointed
E. D. White,a Democrat, chief
justice of the United States. From
all we have read on the subject,
the things in Mr. White which most
strongly appealed to the president
are these: He has long been identi-
fied with that class of quasi-dem-
ocrat quasi-republican politicals of
which Aldrich is the hijrh mogul
White is a Democrat because he
lived in Louisiana, where a Re-
publican doesn't get very far in
A Doll’s Tent
When at a loss to amuse a sick
child try making a doll’s tent from
pieces of canvas or silk. It can be
adapted to suit any special sized doll
by Increasing or decreasing the di-
mensions of the sides.
Cut three acute triangles of the
same size. This means they narrow
to a point at the top.
One of the triangles has an inverted
V-shaped opening for a door. This is
cut about half the height of tent and
Is bound with a gay braid. The pieces
are also bound together with tbs
Cut a circle of wood big enough to
stretch the bottom of the tent around
and nail It firmly to the wood. Stick
one of the new tall hatpins in the
center for a pole and reef the tent
If desiren, a curtain can be made
for the tent door. Provide ropes of
red twine to fasten it back. Sew
small hooks to the canvas for the flap

VALUABLE ARTICLE OF FOOD
People Along the Coasts of Japon
Regularly Gather Harvests oi
"A large Income is derived by the
inhabitants of the coasts of .Japan
from gathering and selling oriinar)
seaweed," said Jeremiah King of At
"More than 3,0^0,000 yen is derived
by the harvesters of the aeep each
year. This does not include the large
amount of the product consumed by
"Certain kinds of seaweed are used
for food and its by-products represent
thousands of dollars annually. As
choice a dessert as I ever have eaten
was made from weeds gathered on the
southern coast of Japan. This mixed
with sugar and sprinkled with rum
makes a dessert rarely equaled on
this side of the Atlantic.
“There are families on the coast of
Japan whose ancestors for hundreds
of years have lived entirely from the
proceeds of the seaweed gathered
from March to November and sold for
food. The natives anchor branches of
trees at the mouths of the rivers
which flow into the ocean. The in-
coming tide deposits seaweed on the
branches. The natives gather it, dry
It, and after mincing it with huge
knives sell it in large quantities.”

The best way to do this is to put it where you cannot get
it on short notice. In the Oklahoma Savings & Loan Associa-
tion you will find one of the best methods of saving your
money, and when you want it you must give thirty days
notice, which protects you against the practice of buying
things you do not need with the money you do need.
We have the agency for this association, and will be
pleased to show you the advantages it offers to those who
desire to make a good paying investment, and one that is
backed by the banking laws of the state of Oklahoma.
Jt will cost you nothing to investigate, and it may be the
means of doing you a great deal of good. If you have a few
dollars that you will not need in your business right away,
and that you would like to see earning you good dividends,
call at the Journal office and see what we have for you.
