RED CROSS MAKES
.ANOTHER BIG SHIPMENT
County Red Cross headquarters
made" .another big shipment of
finished garments sent In by the va-
rious branches this week. Included
in the shipment were: 480 triangu-
lar bandages; 1951 hospital gar-
ments. This makes 25 boxes which
have been sent out by the Beaver
county chapter since its organization
and the total ot finished garments is
as follows: Hospital ' garments
6310 surgical dressings 2365 knit-
ted garments 001. Of the knitted
garments many were socks and
wrlstletB which went as pairs but
were counted as' one. Had each
single article been counted the knit
ted goods would have gone over the
thousand mark.. Wo feel that this is
a splendid record and one ot which
" Beaver county women have reason to
be proud. It shows that our Red
Cross workers arc not slackers and
that they realize they do not have to
"do something big" although the vsry
thing they havo done is big or go to
Franco In order to serve their coun-
try and aid in the light against the
Hun. Do you realize that Beaver
county Is heading the list in the
southwest In Red CrosB work? It Is
a fact. We should and do feel
proud ot those who. have made this

REPUBLICANS TAKE NOTE.
On next Tuesday August 6 1918
will bo held the. primary election for
the nomination of state and county
officers. The Republican party must
poll about 28000 votes in Oklahoma
on that day to entitle It to a state
The state officials are sending out
no Socialist ballots to tbo soldier
boys so they can cast none Many
Socialists have registered as Repub-
licans and many others will not vote
at the primary because ot a feeling
ot disloyalty In some quarters
against the Socialist party as a
rmrty. and other reasons so that It Is
almost certain a sufficient number of
Socialist votes will not be polled n't
the primary to entitle that party to
a state ticket this fall. If the So-
cialists get no state ticket they will
bo so provoked at the Democratic
party that all of them will vote the
Republican ticket In November.
There aro about 50000 Socialist
votes In Oklahoma and If 30000 or
35000 of them vote the Republican
ticket as they will wo can elect a
Republican governor and tnll set of
Republican officials this fall and
ahnlfo Innso thn nollllcnKleeches and
It would not only be a disgrace
but a calamity to the state Hr us not
to poll enough votes to entitle the Re-
publican party to a state ticket this
fall. So let every Republican talk
to every other Republican about' It
and soo that a full vote is polled at
tho primary and the best timber se-
lected as tho candidates.
One ot the most Important offices
the people in northwestern Oklahoma
are required to select ror is mat oi
Judeo ot the District Court. Mr.
Arthur G. Sutton of Alva Okla.
seems to be In tho lead in this part
of the district tor that office. He did
not himself personally clrculnte a
petition In his home town and per-
sonally solicit written endorsements.
Most business men from the nature
of things will from a business stand-
point sign nearly any petition pre-
sented them. If time and spaco per-
mitted Mr. Sutton could obtain the
written endorsement of thrco-
tourths the voters of his home
county but he would not circulate
a petition for an endorsement or
publish thOBO ot Democrats and So-
cialists and the Democratic party Is
not trying to nominate him oh tho
Republican ticket at the primary to
have an easy mark to knock down at
the general election in November.
His friends persuaded him to get Into
the race. The Farmers Co-operative
Association and Farmers Federation
ot Alva and the Republican organ-
ization of his home county havo an
nounced his candidacy. John Dato
mun ot Knowlcs; W. J. Lehman ot
LaKemp; Henry Nichols of Forgan;

ot Clear Lake; Dexter Gllger of
Sunset; R. M. Rizley 6f Elmwood
and A. II. Montgomery' of Ivanhoc
all farmers of Boavcr. county have
Investigated the qualifications and
standing of Mr. Sutton and unani-
mously endorse and recontmend' him
to the people of the district as the
one best qualified and salted for the
office. And the Republican organiza-
tion ot Texas .county has also Inves-
tigated and endorsed Mr. Sutton for
the position and say 'of him as fol-
lows: Mr. Sutton is a matt of the
highest Integrity and Is universally
respected In the community to which
he resides. As a lawyer he 'stands
at the head ot the bar ot the district
and is rated as one ot the able law-
yers of the state. He Is possessed ot
a judicial temperament and we are
satisfied will hue to the line and ad-
minister the affairs of the offlco Im-
partially and without fear or favor
and wlthout.unpecessary delay. With
these qualifications we submit that
Mr. Sutton Is the man tor the Re-
publicans of the district to eater the
fight with; and that he will make the
people of ibis district a Judicial of-
ficer ot whom we may 'Justly be
We might secure" the names of
three-fourths the voters of the dis-
trict and append hereto but time and
space forbid and we ask ypu to. ac-
cept our investigation ot Mm-"
These recommendations aro from
people at home whom wo all know
and not from Democrats and So
cialists for the purpose ot nominat-
ing a straw candidate who can easily
be defeated at the general election.
Mr.' Sutton is 46 years of age
Just In tho prime of life and will give
ui 'court and Is the man all can unite
on and he can be elected. A vote
for him will be a service to your
country. Vote for him August 5
1918. He wliriead us to victory.
