Who wants to get rich? Everybody. Who is
going to get rich? Only the prudent hard -working
hustler who saves his meney and. puts it to
work for him. You can't amass a fortune by sav-
ing alone you have to make your dollars earn
more dollars. They certainly won't earn anything
tied up in an old sock or buried. Put your dollars
in a good reliable bank like ours. Let them work
with our dollars. Teach them to hove "cents."
They like to wo-k. Give them a good job. We

TWYFORD GIVK8 FAREWELL
C. F. Twyford who has been re-
ceiving many honors from his friends
-who entertained for him previous to.
his departure for his new home at
Pueblo Colorado returned the
compliment by a big farewell party
to his friends which was given at the
K. of P. hall Thursday night of last
week. Dancing cards and social con-
versation occupied the evening hours
until luncheon time when the guests
were invited to Jeff's place and
served with delicious ham sand-
wiches pickles and coffee. The affair
was one of the most' pleasurable
events of the season and was highly
enjoyed by' all. Those present were:
Mr. and Mrs. J. B. Spurrier
Mr. and Mrs. John W. Savage
Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Culwell

DID YOU FAIL? MAKE GOOD IN
Many requests have been received
by the Oklahoma War Savings Com-
. mittee that the time for redemption
of 1118 pledges bd extended. The
sale of the 1018 series ended on De-
cember 3 1st but there is no reason
why 'those who were unable to dis-
charge their obligation prior to the
time these Stamps wore taken off the
market should not show their good
faith by buying or the 1919 Issue.
This issue was placed on sale
throughout tho country January 1st.
The January price of the "W. S. S. Is
$4.12 each and this price will ad-
vance one cent each month tho ma-
turity date Is January 1st 1924.
No change is made in the Thrift
i Stamps and those who did not fill
their cards prior to the' close of the
year can apply those stamps on the
purchase of the 1919 Issue.
. The campaign during tho present
(year will be conducted on somewhat
different lines from that of 1918. The
committee however Is not In a
position to state definitely at this
time as to the plan that will be
.Redeem your pledge. It Is your
patriotic duty as an American citizen
to do so.
I haye the best farm
loan proposition in Bea-
ver county. Get my
terms before closing
any loan. : : : :

John A. Spohn whoso card appears
elsewhere in this paper announcing
a general practice of law has Just
closed a surcesssful adminlstralon of
four years and four months as county
Judge of Beaver county.
Mr. Spohn has not been disposed to
parade his official acts for the pur-
pose of securing praise from the pub-
lic but quietly and efficiently has per-
formed his official duties with a
conscientious regard for right and
During the two terms and four
months that he held Uie office of
county Judge he has made orders In
280 probate cases 92 criminal cases
and 110 civil cases and has conducted

host of friends throughout the county
will bo pleased to know that he has
rented an .office at the courthouse
and will remain on duty for every-
thing that will be for the betterment
of the county while practicing law

ence as County Attorney and two
terms as County Judge coupled with
his general educational qualifications
eminently fit him for the general
practice of law which he has under-
taken and we bespeak for him the
success of which he Is well deserving.

NEW STORK FOR BEAVER
J. W. Henderson of Boyd a prop-
erty owner being owner of the resi-
dence property formerly occupied
by Harvel Padget and family moved
to Beaver Friday of last week to re-
main permanently. He has rented
the old post of flee building and will
open a grocery store therein as soon
as his goods which are ordered ar-
rive. He is not now at tho business
nnd promises us a first-clasB grocery.
The Herald is glad to note the new
business and extends Mr. Henderson
and. wife a hearty welcome.
JACK NEWSOM HURT AGAIN
Bad luck seems to pursue llttlo
Jack Newsom son of J. F. Newsom
and wife. He recently fell down the
basement steps at the grade school
building cutting a deep gash over his
eye which took several stitches to
hold. Last week while indulging in
a snow ball fight he got within range
of a hard snow ball which had been
hurled from the hand of one ot the
other boys and it struck him in the
faace cutting his upper lip severely
it being' necessary for a physician to
take several stitches to close this in-
Jury also. Little Jack is certainly
playing in tough luck.
In our Ilnotpye matter last week
which was set at an out-of-town shop
a number of errors got by the proof
reader Among the gravest ot the
errors was one In which our copy
which read. "Under Sheriff E. B.
Gardner had a letter from his broth-
er Edwin S. Gardner Ed had Just
received word of the death of his
brother Oscar Gardner who died at
Forgan November 2d." The Ilnotpye
operator Jumbled our copy and caused
the article to read "Under Sheriff E.
B. Gardner had a letter from his
brother Oscar Gardner who died at
Forgan November 2d" and the proof-
reader who must have been asleep
let.the error go by. Many other small
errors In mis-spelled words and
wrong letters added to our grief but
that all goes with running a country
newspaper.' We grow more firm ev-
ery week in our belief that Kaiser Bill
ought to be sentenced to a country
shop and compelled to issue the paper
each week rain or shine news or no
news as Just punishment forhls sins.
Attorney fJ. W. Culwell attended to

O. O. Mendenhall county com-
missioner elect ot the first dis-
trict and F. H. Drum new com-
missioner ot the second district
were here last week filed their
bonds and qualified for the.offices
to which they had been elected
but tho members of the old
board did not surrender the of-
fice holding over under the con-
tention that they are entitled to
remain in office till July 1 1010
under a law passed by the 1017
legislature. The new members
feel that they should have been
inducted into office and that the
old Board is barred from holding
over because of the stato consti-
tution which provides that the
length ot term nor emoluments
of an office cannot be increased
and become effective during the
term of any officer. The same
condition prevails'in other parts
of the state and a test case is be-
ing made in another county.
While here Messrs. Drum and
Mendenhall talked over the fu-
ture situation with a number of
people who are interested in the
affairs of the county in general.
They are honest upright ener-
getic men who have made a suc-
cess of their own business by
applying business methods and
from their talk while here It is
very evident that when they do
assume the duties of county
commissioner the taxpayers
may feel assurredof a fair hon-
orable and business administra-
tion. Arthur G. Daniel commission-
er elect of the third district was

to see him run down to Washington to got his pension

is lucky enough to receive a check on one of 'those placos.
Maybe he'll sell a horse to a man In a neighboring town
and receive a check In payment. Did you ever stop to
think that if it were not for this bank you would have to
