' A WORD AT THE FIR8T 8TATE MILE-POST.
Commemorative of the first anniversary of statehood. Tho Leader o mes
to Ite riders I'oday befirlng abundant evidence of tho now stale's prosperity.
One year ngo today Oklahoma territory after years of travail jelned the
sisterhood of s'ates. Filled with optimism and1 tho resources with which to
back up this silrlt of elation. It flouted tho pessimists picked up its burden
and iprccecded tc- occuiiy tho Nation's spotlight. Whcrcforo we arc sur-
Tp Use the vernacular of Uio Street Oklahoma hnB "delivered tho goods."
One year of statehood u.idor a twentieth century constitution and a business
administration makes tho twelfth month glance 'backward vibrant vlth pride.
Uhospectlvely wo pay homage t- Ullllken tho god of luck and good fortune.
Lifting tho veil of tho future reno dlscorn tho God of Bolter Things. Oklahoma
bolng groat xvfhy should wo not extoll hor greatness? iln a word the Infant
state of tho Union possesses all tho resources and all the 'brains necessary
to dovelep these resources natural and acquired owned and prldcfully
oatelled toy each and cvory other state of tho Union. Therefore Tho Leader
la pleased to chant the goodness of Oklahoma and Its capital city
And In passing Tho Leader has no apologies to rffcr for Its humble
.contribution to tho upbuilding of tho territory and state. For fifteen years
The Leader has been on tho firing lino while history has been warm In tho
making. The Leader Is of for and hy Oklahoma. It has gtvwn from a
gaso'.lno engine that didn't work and from a wood Jotter "O" that required
operation to make a "C" to a state Institution possessing all modern
ifacllltles and a cllentelo that novcr wnvers Tho (Leader has kopt even
pace with tho development of territory and state. Its. euccobs Is duo to
Oklahoma loyalty; It has thrlvon on merit anj undying persistency. A
Democratic paper In the very nest of Ucpubtlcanlsm The Loador has passed
through countless adversities. Its struggles havo ibecn hard. But The
Leader has ono on. For fifteen years It has been under the eamo owner-
hlp and management Tho Loader has mado no spectacular fan fares or
flamboyant displays. It has not anight to force normal conditions Into
abnormal channels to Its own hurt and tho consequent harm to tho city. Tho
Leader has persistently and zealously labored for tho 'betterment of Guthrie.
Logan county and; Oklahoma. If nny ono has suffered In this uplift The
Leader grieves but It cannot tarry to hind Imaginary wounds. Tho march
forward for the -state Is relont!bs. It novcr halts; never sleeps nnd Tho
Loader now m In tho vast Is In the vargunrd on tho firing line.
This Issue of Tho Leader comes as a testimonial to the people who
havo maJo Oklahoma great!
Oklahoma has been tho tepic of
much writing and many suggestions
within tho past year. Tho vast ma-
jorlty of top writers havo won their
groat knowledge of tho state by travel-
ing through on somo lino of railroad

We aro tho 4aby state and as such
must expect much advice from tho
older commonwealths and havo our

tion of our faults our virtues be men-
tioned tho state will not tako excep-

progressive man; If ho havo capital
ho can make it ourn great returns; If

O BACHELOR REFLECTIONS.. O
(From the New York Press.)
A man and his political prophecies
are soon busted.
A girl makes lovo to a man by mak
ing him do it to her.
Tho thing that makes a woman hap
py Is to Imagine she is.
Women put on tholr stockings fTrst
bo that if anybody shou'd como In
thoy will feel dressed.
No matter from what point of view
you tako a fat woman In all of her
seoms to be on that side. '' - '

Then Mom she got a hairpin out
An' poked an" pretty quick
She had tbo bolt turned in tho lock
I Tho hairpin did tho trick.

LOVE SPAN8 DISTANCE.
(By Wilbur Bortraml Hinds.)
'TIs quite ionoly In tho gloaming
niten I'm far away from homo;
But a whisper from a love! ono
comei to mo:
"Be of cheer our heart goes with you
wherever you may roam:
And wo mention you at bedtime
whon wo pray."
Then ray thoughts aro tender bettor
and the picture grown apace
Of a hearth ani scenes as dear as
tcar can bo;
Dlstaiiac seems to vanish 'UU ! hear
as face to face
?c communion with the heart that
beats for mc.
Vast mountains rise above me really
tow'rlng to tho sky
Chasms yawn and torrents roar in
Storms loiii proclaim God's awful
penver In thunder tones on
Still como the tones that name me
wcn Love doth pray-
So I'm itoirJerlng believing that the
day is almost hare
When tho mystic ot mind shall yield
the far-off mental message wire-
loss swift and clear.
Will then pass in accents known
from boul to wml.

SAID ABOUT THE LEADER.
'More than 60.000 copies of thU Issue
of Tho Leader .sUll be circulated. Tho
resultant good is already credited to
Holdcnvilto Tribune: Thero Is one
fearles3 -consistent Democratic paper
In Oklahoma. That paper 13 the
Guthrie Dally Leader. Brother Niblack
is certainly one ;.f Oklahoma's Institu-
tions. Custer County Newa: For straight
Democracy direct from tbe shoulder
:ommend us to the Dally Leader. It
Is state Democracy's solid standby
Sayro Tribune: Tho people of
Beckham county read may papers but
wait for the Dally Leader t. baso their
estimates on The Leader is tho beat
paper In the state.
Wewoka Democrat: Politicians como
and go and newspaper change but the
Guthrie Dally Loader never falters
Niblack is always t the baU
Waukomls Hornet: Tho Guthrie
Leader used to maliciously draw the
fire ef all the newspaper boys In the
territory. Fir many years the Leader
lias ibeon the first paper grabbed In
nowspaper sanctums Thero Is alwaj-i
"something" In Tho Leader. There is
no denying Its popularity Since fhe
Leader mado Logan county white throe
years ago and elected Its owner to th
senate. It has not been so mallcloush
irritating. Tho Londer thai roaliv
achieved moro by supromo moilt than
any tthor paper to say nothing of
putting Agco to sleep.
Hobart Chief: The. Guthrie Leader
has tho best standing t any -paper In
the htste. Aa on indication of how
The Loador stands It may bo said that
Senators Owen and Ooro .both spok
In this section One opposed the
Vrooland bill; the other fav red It
Yet eaoh la his speech said a g od
word Tor The Loador. NIblaoh and
tho Loader have always anado good
E.k City Democrat! There are
papers in Oklahoma that have per-
haps a larger iiarbor sfcop circulation
than tho Guthrie Dally Leader but
none is stronger or more widely read
than the Leader which goes to every
county in the state and is recAgnlcec
as the state paper par excellence.
