other fellows only laugh at the
antics of the combine.
' W. A. Rentie has had an
eruption and called a conven-

The antics of this sacred trio at
Okmulgee will be worth record-
ing and we have hired a special
reporter to take the proceedings
of the meeting and the after
math. J. C. Johnson is request-
ed to keep Dennis Gyrus at

Kunny Jaybird Gordon and the
comical All Vacant clowns for
the circus.

It is a pity that 'our ignorant
people are imposed upon by Uie

called and the grafters put be-

Rachel A. Edwards and Silas
Edwards Creek citizens filed a
suit against the Guarantee Gold
B rd Bank and savingr compa-
ny one of the Negro banks of
this city yesteiday.in which
t ley charge an attjmpt to de
fraud.
They seek to have a wan an-
toe deed to forty acres of their
land set aside alledging that the
instrument they signed was a
mortgage to the land which
was altered so as to become an
abs )lute warrantee deed.
Tho petition says that on the
seventh day of this month tho
plaintiffs borrowed 300 on a
forty aero tract of land of tho
Booker T. Washington dined
with John Wannamaker and
his daughter at Saratoga Sun-
day. The incident has caused
considerable comment. Wana-
maker is excused on the ground
that he did not know any bet
ter. Beinenibering the action
of another distinguished Ameri-
can he probably thought he was
doing the proper thing. B k
er Washington knew that it
would cause comment and that
such an incident would have a
bad influence on the Negroes of
the South.
Booker Vashingt 11 has posed
as a leader of his race lie has
studied the characteristics of
the Southern Negro and knows
that he will endeavor to imitate
those whom he follows. He
knows that his action will occa-
sion adverse (omnunt in the
south and that the Negroes
who would seek to imitate his
example will suiter the conse
quences. And wiin an cms
knowledge Booker Washingt n
a 0. pts si c'i f ivv or s at tl e
hands of a prominent American
and even glories in the fact that
his host is so ignorant of the
conditions of the south that he
immagints he is doing the Ne-
groisa favor. Booker Washing-
ton by his act has shown him-
self to be a very unwise leader.
He is uii-a'e and the Negr )
who realy seeks the advance
ment of his race will look else-
where for a preceptor. Arkan-
sas Democrat.

TAKING THE STUMP
To tell about our lumber. It is
put forward to win the approval
of the lumber users of this section
and when its good points are ap-
preciated it will certainly do so.
We s e no satisfaction or
profit in handling low grade stock.
Neither will consumers when they
k-arn that tin finest lumber does
not piece by the foot but by the
inches.
