What A Husband Dobo.
An exchange publishes an ar-
ticle ou "What a husband does
when his wife ros away" and
ciio3 the ewe of one man whose
wife went on n visit.
He says "I breathed a sifih of
relief when the train started
and botore it was a mile out of
the city I was holding n reunion
with two old chums in a bar-
room and feeling as if juBt out
of jail. For three days and
niKhts I held reunions most of
the time in bar-rooms; played
poker; stayed up almost all nijrht
and had a "tfiouous time."
On the tenth day ho went to
see his wife and told her all a-
bout what he had done after
which she wanted him always in
her sight.
No wonder the wife of such a
man would always want him to
be in her sight. She needed a
real man for a husband and not
a pollycoddle like that. Women
who have real men fqr husbands
and know it are not afraid to let
them get out of their sight.

man tue other six combined.
Being the "poll boss" 'all the
others are comt'ninj? to throw
mud at him. S'jme My he is
the ring candidate. Maybe he is;
anyway ho Iia3 the support of a
good big ring of voters and it
seems the othi'rd cannot get e-
nough backing to make a ring.
Some say be is the tool of C.
N. Haskell That certainly
would be bad enough if true.
But the same charge was mude
about Lee Oruce when he was a
candidate. Now let any man
show us where Cruee ban been
influenced by Haskell in any one
instance.
Williams certainly is big c-
nough to know Haskell is a dead
goose and be would hardly be
likely to tie his kite string to a
corpse.
o
Lawton's Suburb.
In the debnte ot Lawton re-
cently one of the Lawton debat-
ers referred to the Elgin boys
as "My opponents from the
suburb of Lawton." And later
the same speaker referred to the
"immortal Shakespeare.1"
While Elgin is not a "big
place" like Lawton it is not al-
ways quantity but sometimes
quality that counts. At the de-
bate between the same schools
in Elgin u few weeks before
there were three times us ninny
people in attendance as there
were at the Lawton debate.
And it does seem like the
speaker who thought he would
create a little merriment at El-
gin's expense would have been
ashamed to open his mouth on
that line before a house full of
vacant scats.
So we thought it best to call
Ills attention to the mutter and
Bee whether ho thought the joke
was really on Elgin or on Law-
ton. o

J. E. WILLIAMS of Sterling
For Representative.
During the past few days the
editor of this paper has decided
to make the race before the Au-
gust primary for the democratic
nomination for state representa-
tive from this district which
consists of Cotton and Coman-
che counties and is entitled to
two representatives.
In announcing for office we
feel that a man's character and
daily life say much more than all
the words he may utter through
the medium of a newspaper but
for the benefit of some readers
in the county at a distance we
will say a few things as to our
qualifications for the office.
H. P. Wettengel was born and
raised on a farm in Illinois is
40 years old and has kept in
touch with the interests of the
farmer all his life by reading
farm journals and by constant
contact with them.
' He taught in rural and high
schools for eight years giving
thtrrrurif'-hlir closest attention
and never lost live minutes of
time from the school room dur-
ing the eight years. He attend-
ed normal school college and
university nnd holds a Life State
Teacher's certificate in Illinois.
One year ha .vas a democratic
candidate for nomination for
county superintendent of schools.
In 190G he wnH a delegate to the
Nebraska democratic state con-
vention. He has published democratic
newspapers for over four years
been a bank cashier and a post-
master for nearly four years.
He lived in Nebraska for two
years and has lived in Oklahoma
during the past seven years.
He spent several days in the
gallery during the sessions of
the last legislature and watched
the school boy tactics of many
members of that body who were
afraid to open their mouths on
any .question nnd many limes
changed their votes during the
reading of the roll call en ques-
tions. He stands squarely on a plat-
form of morality economy and
efficiency in office and the aboli-
tion of many things causing our
high taxes.
A 'phone has been installed in
the Champion office so don't
fail to 'phone us any news you
have as it will be thankfully
received.

DAILY DIET HINTS

Food SpocUlut.
A MONODIET EXPERIMENT.
A raader of these hint Im-
pressed with the reasonableness
of the argument In favor of the
monodlet tried the plan of eat-
ing only one food at a meal.
The immediate result was un.
satisfactory because aa the
said she alwaa felt as If she
hadn't eaten at all. She was
never satisfied even though she
ate much mo-e than formerly
when the mixed her food. That
seemed strange but she admit-
ted that however much ah
might feel unsatisfied after eat-
ing her evening meal she was
no more hungry In the morning
than Vthen she had eaten In the
old way.
The vitality consumed In di-
gesting a single food l so much
less that the feeling may be
compared to the effect of sud-
denly turning on the full current
to an irr.pty street car at rest.
I do not advise everybody to
adopt the monodlet and never
suddenly though I rarely est
more than two article at a meal
myself but I always advise It
foi the Invalid for a time. The
chief a-jument against the aim
pi dlei that we must have vari-
ety to get full nutrition I un-
reasonableTor milk for the In-
fant wheat corn fit paean
nut oatmeal data arunaa
bananaa (allowing far molstur)
and. em ether food contain
