BOOSTING THAT IS PRACTICAL.
The proposition to place high grade
cotton seed Into the hands or the farm
era of the couuty is one of The best
bits of boosting that has ever been
undertaken. It is a kind of boosting
that. W worth while because it is per-
fectly feasible and because it is dead-
sure to produce desirable results.
Town-bullders frequently fall be-
cause they tackle proportions that are
Impractical or beyond their means to
accomplish but tliere is nothing elu-
sive or uncertain about this undertak-
ing. It its a movement that is bound
to bring tangible benefits to both town
and country and there Is no chance for
failure If the plan Is carried out.
That more and better cotton will
bring more prosperity to farmers and
nierchants is a propositi in so clear
that no argument Is needed to enforce
It. In starting this early to make
Clilckasha a cotton market the busi-
ness! men of the city are avoiding the
folly of former years when this issue
was never raised until the opening of
the cotton season too late to accom-
plish anything. The planting of first
class seed and a sufficient acreage 1
the first step toward making a inarke:
and must necessarily precede all the
rest. Uy applying our wits no the
problem and keeping at It we can have
the remaining steps worked out before
the opening o next seasOD.
While our rea;l interest" may be
expected to receive the most direct
benefit from the movement every prop-
erty owner and every man who has
any Interest whatever at stake in
Chickasha will share in the business
that willreMilt from making the ciiy
a cotton nrarkef. I-ct us remember
that Chickasha :ti s 11! chiefly a retail
town nd when the merchants enjoy
8 good trade the entire town prospers.
Tf the merchants don't prosper the
landlords and all others must Booner
or later feel the effects of it.
The movement undertaken by the
Chamber of Commerce should there-
fore receive the hearty support of ev-
ery citizen. The plan calls for the
raising of and a committee Is
now taking subscriptions. They arc
working for the welfare of Chickasha
and should be cordially received by
every one. It is not pleasant work to
peddle a subscription lis-t; nobody rcl-
lidies the job; give the committee a
cheerful greeting and as generous a
donation as you can afford.
REVISED COUNSEL OF ECONOMY.
Economy Is the word of the hour.
President Taft is talking for it at
Washington. Every - governor and
mayor throughout the laud makes it a
theme of his message. And the wisest
leaders of public opinion are urging
It upon families and Individuals with-
in the range of their Influence.
It Is the universal counsel be care
ful in spending and in getting into
Such advice c'ways good Is partic-
ularly so .when the world of business
seems inclined to go a little slow
after years of extraordinary activity
and when great issues righteous but
disturbing are up for settlement.
And yef even good counsel shou'd be
taken with discretion.
( You might as well kill a man as
scare him to death you might as well
have hard times as to make everybody
think they are sure to come tomorrow
oi li.e day after. If nobody spends a
dollar everybody will suffer that's cer-
tain. So we would revise the counsel of
economy about like ibis:
Don't be afraid to tiuy land at prl?;
you consider reasonable if yau can
see your way clear to pay for it. Land
values will Increase as population in-
creases. "Every improvement In the
condition of the ear'.h goes surely and
mainly to the owners of the earth."
And tuin will be many Imprcv?me is

Don't be afraid to build a home if
you reed o'.e. A home is good in all

favtiable moment to ftuild.

term; is sometimes extended. The
salary of the viceroy is 250800 rupees
a year. The rupee Is now worth one
shilling and four-pence or roughly
thirty-four cents; the salary amounts
therefore to about $81000 a year; but
I should be sorry to undertake the job
and to pay my expenses out of that
The council of the viceroy consists
of six ordinal y members besides the
commander-in-chief of the army and
they are appointed by the crown and
hold oflice for live years. This coun-
cil is enlarged into a legislative coun-
cil by the addition of sixteen other
members appointed by the' viceroy un-
der certain restrictions.
Further India is divided into nine
provinces: llombay Madras Bengal
Eastern Bengal United Provinces The
Punjab Central Provinces1 North
West Frontier Provinces and Burman.
The governors of Bombay and Madras
sre the most Important officials after
the viceroy and are appointed by the
crown and each carries a salary of
$40000 a year. The governors of Bom-
bay and Madras have an-'executive
council of two members of the Indian
civil service appointed by the crown.
The lieutenant-governors of Bengal.
Eastern Bengal United Provinces The
Punjab and Tturmah are appointed by
the viceroy with the approval of the
crown; the chief commissioners of the
Central Provinces and the agent to
the governor-general who governs the
North West Frontier Provinces are
appointed by the viceroy in council.
Of these divisions I visited seven and
in each I was impressed by th; enor
mous amount of work being done by
the conscientious often I thought too
conscientious way in which it was
done and by the dignity and fearless
ness of the men w ho were doing It. If
it were not for the Interferences from
the India office and the criticism from
ignorant politicians who shamefully
play India off for votes at home it
would be the most ideally managed
as it is the most successful!;" adminis-
tered dependency In the world. From
"The Gateway to India" by Price Col-
lier in tile February Scribner
The tragic death of David Graham
Phillip is a shock to the entire nation
and causes millions of Americans to
feel a tense of personal grief. Phil-
lips was only 43 years of age but he
had already performed greater service
for file world than a thousand ordinary
men iutn out In a long life. He was
a voluminous if not always a 'pains-
taking w riter of fiction but his articles
on current topics especially political
matters perhaps bad a wider Influ-
ence than anything else that he wrote.
Phillips was the founder of the Ameri
can M igazine which under his editor
ship attained a place peculiarly Its
ow n iu the magazine world.
With a little persuasion we believe
Oklahoma City could be brought
around to supjwrting state-owned rail-
roads from every nook and'corner'of
the state to that city. As an excuse
for submitting to this indignity the
Oklahoma City newspapers could point
out the great benefits that would inure
to the rest of the state. The metroio-
11s shc-ld be willing to make the sacrifice.
' Tliere Is a certain young lawyer Just
entered into practice says the Denver
News whose heart was gladdened the
other day hy the appearance of a pros
pective client. The client desired to
bring suit aenlnst a railway company
for damages alleged to have been done
property of his on it he river front.
"Your claim apears to be a good one"
said the youthful attorney when the
client's case had been outlined to him
"and I think we can secure a verdict
without much trouble." The man
seemed pleased. "That's what 1 jtold
my wife" said he "and yet she in-
sisted that I engage a first-class law-
yer." "It is a tremendous undertaking to
see a new play accepted and pro-
duced" once said the late Clyde Fitch
to a friend. "So many are written and
so few ever see the light of day. An
English .playwright with a gift of hu-
morous exaggeration illustrated this
fact to me once. He told me how he
submitted a play to a celebrated ac-
w and how in the course of the con.
versa! ion the actor remarked "Don't
you think it is growing chilly in this
room?'' 'Yes It Is rather' the young
playwright admitted. Then the actor
rang a bell and a servant forthwith
appeared. 'James' said the actor 'this
room is rather cold. You may put
three inore manuscripts on the fire'"
Heaven or Hell.
If heaven has not begun for you al-
ready U Is idle for you to be look-
ing forward to some future day In
gome distant place when it will be-
gin. And the discontent the unrest
the envy the jealousy the bitterness
the groveling mind the perverse will
the unsocial temper If these are your
present experiences they have only
to continue and become chronic to
make a hell more dread than Milton
ever painted. Washington Gladden.
Height of Goodness.
He Is good that does good to others.
If he suffers for the good he does he
Is better still; and if he suffers from
them to whom he did good he Is ar-
rived to that height of goodness that
nothing but an increase of his suffer-
ings can add to It; if it proves his
death his virtue Is at its summit; it
Is heroism complete. Bruyere.
New Orleans has won itho first
round In the bout with San Francisco
over the Panama exposition. That the
gulf city is the "logical point" no-

careful study of this map we have
concluded that New Orleans Is nearer

A rich old man was asked how he
made his money. 'Simplest thing In

I bought prices were low."
