Ju8t a little more rouh-riding in
Ohio and Col. Koosevelt will have the
presidential nomination lassoed.
President Taft cries out that he is
hit below the belt. If so he knows
how the American people felt about
his tariff revision promises ' he made
them before the last presidential elec-
tion. The Infamous Akin bill that has for
its object the striking down of nearly
all of the state preparatory schools Is
having hard sailing. Even with the
iron hand of the governor backing It.
it is doomed to ignorminioiis defeat.
Economy will have to start somewhere
else before striking down the schools
Governor Crace's demand for relief
from congress In the matter of refund-
ing of taxes on Indian homesteads
will have little effect. Relief will have
to come from some other source. The
money paid as tax on Indian home-
steads was received by the state and
if ever reftinued will have to he re-
funded by the state.
Craig county records show that
printed matter to the amount of $215.51'
was bought of Buxton & Skinner of St.
Louis during the month of April. The
amount paid the printers of Craig
county was $66.75. This discrimination
in favor of a St. Ixmis firm is without
excuse. There is not another county
in the state of Oklahoma that has so
discriminated against its home news-
Those who see nothing but disaster
to Eastern Oklahoma In the loss of
taxes on Cherokee homesteads over-
look the fact that of the five thousand
allotments to the "Too Late" babies
will bring in a large amount of taxable
land. All these new allotments made
to those of less than half Indian blood
will be immediately taxable with the
exception of a honnstead of an aw r
ape of ."0 acres which will in a large
measure offset the other loss.

nounco Dan Tittle as a candidate for
Constable of Vinita Township subject

Bristol. Tenn.. May 16. The execu-
tive committee of Home Missions of
the Southern Presbyterian church ren-
dered an account of its expenditure
of $1 25 787. 17. received from all sources
during the year just past. In its an-
nual report to the General Aksenibly
made here today.
"In round numbers substantially
correct" says the report "the execu-
tive committee is aiding in the sup-
port of 400 missionaries (not counting
their wivesi. 6M churches and mis-
sions receiving about :!.000 into mem-
bership in these home mission
churches on profession of faith and
perhaps as many more by certificate."
The year marked thc first in which
the committee had supervision of the
evangelization work among the ne-
groes that cause having been consoli-
dated. There was still farther en-
largement of the committee's sphere
when on October 1st. 1911. under the
authority of the general assembly the
Soul Winners' Society through Dr. E.
O. Guerrant. president transferred to
tbi committee fifty additional mission-
aries with their stations mission
schools ana property valued at $49000.
The absorption of the work hereto-
fore carried on under Dr. Guerrant
has extended the mountain field. "In
many communities which we have now-
entered." says the committee "the
Presbyterian church has been hereto-
fore absolutely unknown and we are
the only church occupying the field .
At the head of this work which the
committee has been gradually extend-
ing for years has been placed the Rev.
V. E. Hudson. "His qualifications for
this service and experience In moun-
tain missions." says the report "seem
to adapt his specially for the respons-
ibility. It Is the purpose of the com-
mittee to induce Presbyteries gradual-
ly to absorb the work and unify the
whole as speedily as possible."
Rapidly growing Oklahoma is urged
as a field for Immediate work. Among
iU 2000000 population the church has
3t ministers 73 churches and 2500
communicants. Very few of the
churches are self supporting and the
Synod as a whole is largely dependent
on the aid of the committee. In Texas
are numerous sections where aid is
likewise require. These western states
lilling up with sons and daughters of
the east and collecting without regard
to church affiliations present peculiar
and difficult problems" says the re-
port. The committee) feels that the work
among the negroes has been marked
by a decided advance during the first
year of supervision. Stillman Insti-
tute did well and during the current
year the committee has assisted in the
support of 40 negro missionaries and
teachers and four white supplying 6!
churches. Au arrangement hoped to
be the beginning of larger things in
the way of co-operation has been ef
fected by which the committee ex-
j pends the funds of the Reformed
('huch of America in the supplying of
that church's negro missions.

Not the Only Favored One.
Young Jamie's people were poor and
not always solvent wherefore the lad
while still very young knew the mean-
ing of debt. One day when Jamie had
been sent to ask a pa: lent tradesman
for more supplies he was hurt and
ashamed to see the man hesitate.
"You needn't be afraid of sending the
things because we owe you a little
money" exclaimed the child with In-
dignation. "We owe plenty of people
more than we owe you!"

It was on a Newton-Brighton sur
