This Mexican situation, as reported
in the papers is “sorter" getting on
our nerves. It begins to look as If
Uncle Sam, who has been following
this "Watchful Waiting” plan would
get his “dander riz" pretty soon and
at least make an example of the Grea-
ser element in Mexico, so that those
who were left would show some re-
spect for the American boundary.
Its getting about time that some one
should be spaDked and sent supperless
REV. C. M. MYERS TO OHIO
Rev. Myers, who was a pastor of
a church several years at Lamont,
manager of a ball team there a sea-
son or two, was a candidate for
legislative honors, being pitted
against Hon. J. W. Smith, who de-
feated him by a small majority, has
been pastor of the Caldwell Christ-
ian Church for several years, has de-
cided to go back to the land of his
birth and has accepted the pastor-
ate of a church at Findlay, Ohio.
He expected to leave for his new
home about October 1st.
One of the greatest calamities of
the year was the explosion of a tank
car of gasoline at Ardmore, Okla.,
this week, in which about 50 were
killed and some two hundred badly
injured. Six blocks of buildings in
the heart of the city were ruined.
There was hardly a whole pane of
glass left in the city. The estimate
loss was close to a half million dol-
lars and may exceed that figure.
The explosion was caused by
spark made by the hammer of
workman who was repairing a leak
in the tank. After an investigation
the railroad was blamed for the
Who weds a sot to get his cot,
Will lose the cot and get the sot.
Love is the sweetest joy, the wild-
Lose no right and commit no extor-
A man is not good or bad for one
Let not thy expenditure exceed thy
All wish to livelong, but not to be
A man cannot bear all his own kin
on his back.
The end of mirth is the beginning
The experience of life—what a fool
I have been.
Who wants an enemy, let him lend
Who is lszy in his youth must work
la his old age.
Mercy to the criminal maybe cruel-
ty to the people.
Life is too short to learn more than
one business well.
As we journey through life let us
live by the way.
It is not a sin to sell dear, but it is
to make ill measure.
Every man is occasionally what he
ought to be perpetually.
A deaf husband and a blind wife
are always a happy couple.
He that looks on knows more of the
game than he who plays.
Keep your eyes wide open before
marriage and half shut after.
Men may blush to hear what they
were not ashamed to act.
Let every man be swift to hear,
slow to speak, slow to wrath.
Life that is too short for the happy,
is too long for the miserable.
If thy hand be in a lion’s mouth
get it out as fast as thou canst.
Men take less care of their cons-
cience than their reputation.
A falsehood is the devil’s daughter,
and speak's her father’s tongue.
Mistakes occur through haste, never
through doing a thing leisurely.
The passions are like fire and water,
good servants but bad masters.
The man is a fool who when he
asked for his candid opinion gives it.
“The suit is ended,” said the law-
yer, "neither party has anything
The Country Editor.
He might of been a millionaire,
And won financial fame,
Or sat in a director’s chair,
Had money been his aim;
He choSe instead to spend f
In service poorly paid,
And with the paste pot and t
A humble living made.
He chronicled the town’s events
The local goings-on;
His fellow townsmen’s hopes and
Inspired his lexicon;
He felt the public pulse that
Around him and be tried
To make his little country sheet
A thing of local pride.
Unselfishly, with all his heart,
He strove but to upbuild
His town, of which he was a part
With great ambition filled.
He spoke well of his fellow men
He praised when praise was due,
He wielded but a kindly pen,
And no reward he drew.
Big Blue Bird Show
The boys of the 4th grade are
going to give a show next Monday
evening in C. M. Smith’s building
on north side of the street. There
will be Acting, Dancing, Singing
and lots of fun. Admission will be
5 and 10 cents, and the boys want
everybody to come. Get your tick-
ets early and avoid the rush.
The Supply Store finished loading
its goods Thursday and went on its
way to Drumright, Oklahoma,
Friday morning. Jesse N. Smith,
who has been with the store for
years, will accompany Mr. Humph-
rey to their new location.
The war reports in the daily papers
unite in saying that Germany and
those in league with her have been
getting the worst of nearly all the
late battles. We hope that those
nations which are now trying to kill
off each other will get their fill so that
peace may be declared for a limited
time—at least a million years. The
Journal thinks that would be about
the right figure.
E. Folger was in town Wednesday
and was placing some of the products
of his farm on exhibition. He placed
a pepper bush full of bright red pep
pers in the display window of the Citi-
zens State Bank and brought a flue
crook-neck squash to the Journal. At
this writing we have visions of
squash pie, if some other tender heart
ed mortal will donate the rest of the
Albert Linn and family of Gibbon,
spent Sunday here visiting relatives.
Mrs. J. H. Downing and two small
children, expects to leave Sunday for
a week’s visit with friends at Goltry
In another column will be fount
a notice of a village special election
to be held Tuesday, October 5th.
’Read it and come out and vote.
Mrs. Hatfield, living in the west
part of town, is not improving as her
friends could wish. She is unable to
lie down now and spends all the time
In a rocker.
Michael Doll, who is now a photo
grapher at Bluff City, Kansas, came
over last Saturday aDd visited with
friends till Tuesday when he returned
to his home.
After getting able to go to work
with his swollen hand, Wednesday
morning, Leslie Fenton had a viol
ent attack of appendicitis which
yielded somewhat to treatment anc
as we go to press he is resting fairly
An all day meeting was held Sun-
day at the Pleasant View church
Rev. John Kemper conducted the
services in the morning, afternoon
and evening. Dinner was servec
at the noon hour, and all that at
tended enjoyed the day.
Charley Libtlepage and Clint Roach
finished the plastering at E Cordray's
farm house a few miles southwest of
town, Tuesday. The next job will ha
cement foundation of Dr. Hamilton’s
new residence, then Clinton is going
down to do some plastering for his
brother, M. J. Roach a few miles
southeast of town
John Miller representing a firm in
Hobart, Oklahoma, stopped off here
with samples of a wheat known as
"Miracle” which Is a soft bearded
wheat that has done wonderfully well
in his part of the country. It is a very
stiff strawed wheat and furnishes lots
more pastuie than the average winter
wheat. He made some large sales at
Medford, to Lew Dervage and W. E.
Brewster. We have samples of this
wheat at this office and anyone inter-
ested may see what it looks like, and
investigate further, It Is sown at
about the rate of a half-bushel per
acre. It may be sown very late and
make a fair crop, and the price is very
reasonable. While the Journal is not
very enthusiastic over planting a
wheat crop this year, but it might be
a good idea to give some of this wheat
a trial. Call and see the samples any
way. it will do no harm.

Such as railroads, oil companies etc., figure
that it costs about three per cent of the cost of the
building to paint it the first time, and that to keep
it painted costs one-half of one per cent per an-
num. They estimate that if they do not keep
their buildings painted they will deteriorate about
ten per cent per annum.
It is Certainly Important to Keep
Everything Well Protec-
ted With Paint.
The directions for the proper application of
SEW ALL'S Pure Liquid Paint are printed on ev-
ery can, The factory has experimented and
manufactured paint for many years and if there
was a better method known for making good
paint they would use that method, and if there
was a better way or applying it, they would indi-
cate it in their directions.
Insist on the Painter Applying
Sewall Paint According
to the Directions.
Many property owners will not go to the expen-
se of applying two coats and that is where they
make a serious mistake, because you cannot get a
satisfactory job with only one coat.
The Second Coat of Paint Costs
Less than the First and is
Worth Twice as Much.

Yard. He will gladly tell you what you want to
