O . Our Father we thaiik thee O
O for letting us k wer Into the O
O new year and for leaving our O
O unfruitful tree still standing in O
0 the field. We thank thee for thy O
O patience toward us. and thy O
O care over us. Forgive us our O
O poor requitals for thy love. Give O
O us grace to pass through to- O
O day's open door facing the O
O clean canvas with a consecrut- O
O ed brush to meet the new op- O
O portunities with a clear vision O
O and to greet the untraveled O
0 pathway with faith's cheerful O
3' dare. Help us t forget what O
iwe ought not to remeniix-r and O
j to remember w hat we ought not O

O toilsome one speak to us more O
O often that so we may learn to O
O love it. Give us to understand O'
O whatever we need tu know and . O
O before thy veil .of mystery O
O patiently to wait. Make our O
O lives so evidently sincere that O
O our defects may not turn others O
O from thyself; and may our O
O little deeds be so free of self as O
O to glorify only thee. Decide O
O thou for us how much of pros- O
O perlty and happiness we may O
O safely be Intrusted with; and O
O If thou must chasten remem- O
O ber how little we can bear O
O alone. Above all use us in this O
O world as much as thou canst O
O and teach us to use thee as O
O much as thou dost desire I'lsiu O
O for us how far down the years O
O we shall go and show us how O
O to make the allotted time worth O
O while. Father help us to view O
O our life here as the gift of thy O
O love; and when thou shalt in O
O terrupt it. may we be glad to O
O run home to thee and to him O
O whom thou didst send to W the O
O Way. Amen. O

Wm. Irwin who has just been son-

conspiracy which "reai'lted- in the blow-
ing up by dynamite of the Sells chil-
dren at Taft was an early day resident
of Shawnee and numbered many
friends and acquaintances among the
"old timers." It Is hard for them to
believe that "Crafty Bill" would de-
scend to the degenerate level of a
murderer of little children to secure
their inheritance. Irwin had always
been something of an adventurer and
had developed years ago into a good
natured cynic whose pessimistic views
of life and other men's motives were
a source of amusement to the idle
throngs that frequented the hotel lob-
hies whero Bill spent most of his wak-
ing hours. If he is guilty and the
court and jury have so found ftill is
a pitable object lesson of what the
greed for money will do for a man
when it becomes his ruling passion.
Vinit is closing the year without a
commercial organization as the com-
mercial club went to sleep some
months ago. It Has been a good many
years since Vinita was entirely with-
out such an organization. Steps
should be taiu:i early in the year to
revive this organization and make it
4H1 effective trade getter.

500 Barrel! Well at Jenks.
Tulsa Okla. De?. 30. Excitement
at Jenks the lit'le oil village south of
Tulsa in the heart of the Perryman
fields which was greatly stirred by the
bringing in of a huge .loo barrel oil
well almost in the center of the town-
site itself about ten days ago reached
its zenith today when the test well of
the Gypsy Oil company on the Annie
Fee Indian allotment adjoining the
town was drilled in and proved to be
a 000 barrel producer.
Jenks has presented a typical Gold-
field or Alaskan mining camp scene
since the discovery of the valuable
crude oil deposit within the city's
boundaries and for many days inter-
est was centered in the Gypsy well
while it was drilling. If It comes in
"good" it meant the boom and bustle
of early oil days In Tulsa the oil me-
tropolis of the state would be witness-
ed in Jenks; if It was "dry" Jenks
would never rise above the level of Its
present commercial Importance. Tulsa
oil men and many Tulsa business men
who never "had their feet wet" In the
oil business are interested in Jenks
and the recent oil strike in the neigh-
boring village will make them rich
both as property owners and oil men.
Tulsa's oil concerns pipe line com-
panies and oil well supply shops and
machine shops are preparing to han-
dle the Jenks situation and furnish
materials and supplies for the many
oil wells contemplated to be drilled
within the next thirty days.
"When the day of woman's right I
has fully come" said a man with the
voice of a Stentor "she may insist up-
on singing bass and baritone and
leave the soprano and contralto parts
of music to be executed by the mas-
culine portion of the community."
"WhyT" he was asked.
"Well this Is the Inference I draw
from a little Incident that happened at
a woman's suffrage meeting I recently
attended: The meeting was opened
by a worthy woman tft.o started to
read some resolutions but as the noise
from the street almost drowned her
strong voice she requested that the
windows at the rear of the room be
closed. Instead of carrying out her
wish I volunteered to read the resolu-
tion for her.
"'No' she replied 'I have got as
strong a voice as you have! Excuse
me' she added 'If I speak roughly but
the assumption of man that he has a
voice that can reach further than a
woman's Is is well it is one of the
iassumptlons that's all.'"
The Theater and Literature.
That the great treasures of a na-
tional literature are so often found In
the drama arises from the essentially
popular character of the theater.
Here the picture and the action drive
home the meaning of the words to
people who would be bored if they
had to read the play and thus fur-
nish the pictures and action out of
their imagination. The great Greek
writers were dramatists and Dante
called his monumental work the "Di-
vine Comedy." Pope de Vega whose
name comes first to mind when one
'turns to Spanish writing barring Don
Quixote was a dramatist. Goethe's
great work was "Faust"; Cornellle
Racine and Moliere are the great
names of French literature and of
the volumes of William Shakespeare
many a writer avers that they leave
nothing for any other English speak-
ing person to say. Christian Science

NECKTIES WORN IN GERMANY
One of Signs of Times In Kaiser's Em-
pireMan Should Be on Lookout
for What Is Most Beautiful.
Berlin. Among the signs of pros-
perity which have marked the Ger-
mans of recent years Is the new and
increasing attention devoted to the
subject of neckties. A Teutonic philo-
sopher on clothes writes about the
matter with the earnestness and pro-
fundity which distinguish bis coun-
trymen In all branches of scientific re-
search. He does not go so far as to define
man as a necktie-wearing animal but
no shallow power of observation Is In-
dicated by his remark that while the
very being of woman seeks expression
In ornament and coloring man at
least for the last hundred years has
renounced anything that might be con-
sidered loud until his fashion of cloth-
ing himself has become universally
monotonous with one exception the
On this he exhausts all his fancy
displays all his taste and either ac-
quires the silent approbation of his
fellow-mortals or exposes himself to
their satire and condemnation. The
necktie question then being one of
the first importance It is well to bear
reverently the conclusions the Teu-
tonic investigator arrives at; all the
more as they will be found In the
First of all as there are no canons
of taste binding on all mankind In the
matter every man must choose his
neckties on his own resposlbility He
will do well says the philosopher not
to rely as many men do on the way of!
even a very pretiy girl behind the
necktie counter; nor will he be guided
In his choice by mother sister or
fiancee for as is shrewdly remarked
they will be likely to take their own
scheme and standard of dresB not his.
Again a man should not buy a
necktie merely because he wants one.
He should always be on the lookout
for what Is beautiful in this line and
having seized the opportunity and
purchased It should add It to his col-
lection. The material should be first
(lass and one should wear a different
tie every day. The final injunction
Is that the necktie should harmonize
with the clothes that It should be
carefully tied so as not to look like a
rope around the neck and that it
should not be disfigured by a pin.

A Disappointing Man. i
When Prof. Charles Zueblla of Har-'
':vard was last In Kansas City he lm-
j mediately sought out L. H. Fiery as-.
slstant manager of the Coates House
who was his boyhood friend. They
had played on the same college base-
ball team and were chums at school.
One afternoon Mr. Fiery and Prof.
Zueblln went to Evanston to play golf.
The professor Is almost an expert at
the game. He was constantly ad-
dressed as "professor." Finally Mr.
Flery's caddie whispered to him
"Is he a professor of golf?"
"Oh no ray boy" Mr. Fiery an-
swered "he's a professor In uni-

The Ordeal by Teat.
Weird tales of the remarkable man-
ner of administration of justice re-
sorted to by natives of the Lower Ni-
ger territory were given lately by a
party of British traders who visited
the river. If a native is accused of
theft the heads of the village make a
decoction of herbs and put into the
essence about a grain of ground pep-
per. The liquid is then ' lightly ap-
plied to the eyelid. If the subject
weeps he is corutdered guilty. But
the murder test is an improvement
upon that of theft. The "wise man"
of the district draws a vessel of wa-
ter Into which he puts some poison.
Then he takes a cow's tall and "as-
perges" the eyes of the supposed as-
sassin. If the roan becomes blind he
is pronounced a murderer.
The Poor Vegetarian.
Dr. Archibald Henderson the au-
thor of the new life of Bernard Shaw
was talking about vegetation at a din-
ner in Hlllsboro.

been a vegetarian more than 20 years.
He sticks to vegetables very strictly.
