"It's all very well for Abraham
Hut It's pnettytough on Mary Add."
Just what Inspired the poet to
break into ong witbthe foregoing
couplet is ofeecored in the myster-
ies of rag-Uoa literature but if be
lived in thie day nd hour it would
be credited to tbe wooing that is
being indalged in 'by Arkansas.
For some reason sentiment has
never beeo . associated with our
eastern neighbor. Tbe mention
of Arkansas baa always brought
visions of pioe iorests some rocks
rasor backs and "white male."
Bat now it bos assumed tbe guise
of a young Lookiovar coming from
the wrong direction to win the
queen of tbe eoctbwest. It may
be however lb dowry of taxable
property which inspired the fol-
lowing dream esade public in the
"The citit ens of Arkansas take
kindly to tbe proposition to annex
the Indian territory. Many were
not aware that5Q000 natives of Ar
kansas have selected the territory
as tbeir future home. Among
these 50000 citizens there are
some of the beet men in the ;coun
try and all are desirous of ad
vancing tbe territory to tbe plane
of greatness to which her natura
resources recommend her. They
would be delighted to have the
territory annexed to Arkansas.
Tbe same is true of white citizens
who came from other states. They
recognize that if annexed to Okla
homa tbey would have to over.
-eeme many difficulties which have
long since been passed ia Arkan
tu. It is always beet for a new
territory to be annexed to an old
atate In this particular case Ark-
ansas has the advantage of all
others for the reason that heHawa
are already in force in tba terri
tory. The people are educated to
their observance and are familiar
with our institutions. It is easy
therefore to realize what an ad
vantage it would be to these peo-
pie to be annexed to Arkansas.
Nor would this statu have a great-
er population than she could easily
manage. With tbe territory an-
nexed Arkansas would still be
smaller in area thin many other
states. At present Arkansas has
a population of 1311000 while
tbe territory has a population of
392000 including Indians. We
should have a total of 1703000
or less than 2000000 population
if we had the territory. Arkansas
has a gross area of 52850 square
miles while tbe territory has only
an area of 32400 square miles. Add
tbe two together and we should
have an area of S5250 square
miles which is less than Montana
with H6.0S0 square miles Nevada

ought to be unnecessary to say
that the Indian territory should be

there is a part of this country that
was originally detached from this
state and it should come back to
us as a matter of simple justice.

ALL KINDS OF BILLS
Big bills-Little bills.
Any kind of a bill just as long as it is a
Lumber or Building Material bill. '
That's our business and that's where we
shine. We can give you a closer set of
figures on that lumber bill you're going to
buy than anybody arcund here and give you
better grades to boot. We are cranks on
quality and believe the best is none too good
for our customers. Consequently we offer
only the choicest grades of stock manufact-
ured and guarantee- you absolute satisfac-
i tion with anything you buy here from a
bunch of lath to complete house or barn bill.
Besides having the largest and best assorted
stock we keep it all under cover so when you
come here for building material you won't
get dirty warped and weather beaten stuff.
And say 1 Just give us your ear a minute
longer. Owing to the unprecedented demand
for building material this year prices are lia-
ble to be much higher than they are now. So
you'll be showing a streak of wisdom by buy-
ing what material you need NOW.
