IHtUK WfcEK GIANTS IN THOSE DAYS.

C. Parier !e ability as a Juie WM clearly demoo-
crated by a more than twenty jearsserTiwoa the bench
of the jmttet criminal court in the world.
The Vesurn dtrict of Arkansas over which Judje
Parker presided so lots? and successfully included half
the state of Arkaaa aad all of Indian Territory which
formerly included Oklahoma. Ail this vast territory was
under martial law and asnenabie only to Parker's court.
Parker had no predecessors and has no successors in his
peculiar field of Antericao criminal jurisprudence. He
took hold cf the great work in aa original way. There
were no precedents for him to follow. II is was the iron
ifnsp of a giant. He fulfilled his mission well and died
in the niche of time. The world ha I enough of even so
able and upright jude as Parker. The whole country
was sick of the blood and carnage of which the -bloody
arizes' of England's darkest day was scarcely a parallel.
To compare the puny Raymond with L C. Parker is
su-r:ie'e. It was a pleasure for an honest man to sit in
Parker's court. There was oo tyraoy there. The kindly
team ef the soul of a great honest man dominated bench
and bar and made life and property safe over a vast wild
domain. Parker ru?e in the last third of thelith century
made the existence of Raymond's petty court possible
' (jver a small district at this eftlighte&ed day.
A GREAT OPPORTUNITY.
A delegate and very important task i soon to fall to
the lot of the people of the great commonwealth that is
about to be formed br the union of Oklahoma and Indian
Territory. The election of suitable delegates to organ-
ize tie constitutional convention and to conduct iti
councils through the trying ordeal of the birth of a state.
The tr.ea who are so soon to perform this important fuix-
1 ion for a people so great in tiumber. fcr a ocir.t rj so
i&rpe and fine in eitent of territory ani for a can- pa-
triotic far-reaching and big with portent ions detisy
should be the flower of the manhood of 'this marvelous
young- giant of the Wet . .
The man who essays to perform this service should
Lrinff to the altar the highest wisdom the most devoted
consecration to duty as a broadminded cit.uen undaunted
by the spoils of party and untainted with the commer-
cial spirit of the are.
To write a constitution for this new state will tea
magni3cer.it opportunity for the exercise of real talent
and to make use of the brain and experience and patriot-
ism of the fathers of our government for more tlan a
century and a quarter past- AlJ the fellies weaknesses
and failures of the past should be discerned and avoided
m the llht of the clear vision and the splendid intel.i-
jreace of the time in which we as a people are privileged
to live. AH the best in statesmanship Integrity rational
and personal honor that the American government has
brought forth from the dawn of independence until the
present sl.ould be made available and from the abund-
ance of the material at hand a foundation for the state
should be laid that would be a model and a pattern for
the whole Cnion
The man ho is merely seeking the supremacy of his
political party a long the lines of partisan po icy is entirely
unworthy of the task and should have no voice in it. The
constitutional convention should be dominated by men
who dwell on the hill-tops of patriotism and character
far above the fog and miasm of cheap politics.
The million and a quarter of wide-awake intelligent
people in these territories now about to tje moulded into
one great commonwealth ought to set about the taaK
with the clearest of vision unclouded bv prejudice and
unbiased by party fealty to send to the coming conven
tion oie hundred and nine of her cleaned ablest and
most patriotic sons.
We live in an age of unprecedented progress along
every line of endeavor. Human liberty is on the march.
The political boss shall reap no harvest in Oklahoma.
The assumption that the masses are Incapable of self
government is a lie. The long dark night of depart-
mental rule of a great people is at last breaking anav
before the sunburst of statehood which me m-. that the
people shall elect their own rulers by popular vote in a
free and fair election.

RIGHT WAY TO COOK RICE
Southern Woman Tells How It la
Done ta Produce the Bert
We overheard a coevsrs&tlon th
jiix'r day l et ween a southern matron
and a northern housewife. They were
talMsg about rice. The woman from
tie wuia lived on a rice plantation.
Her hut band owned large rice fields and
marketed large quae titles of rice every
yr says Medical Talk for the Home.
T.e n..'l;ern woman waa ejins that
rice was not so very much used la the
ooph that she didn't believe fcer family
used a dollar's worth in a year. "We
don'i care much fr it" she ealdani
D'.y fcave it on our table occasionally."
"But" aaid the southern woman
"you northern people don't know how to
cook rice. That U the reason fto littia
of it is used. Why we have it on our
aMe every day. It baa become almost
as much an article of diet with us
lUi the Chinese.
"The mistake so many ptxj'Ie maks
;n cooking ice" he west on to nay "i
feat they put it on in a lot of water and
'ook it and cook it stirring it all the
lime until it is just a paty starch;-
unpalatable mess. I don't wonder that
people don't like rice when It Is cocked
in this manner. The Chinaman himself
wouldn't eat e-uch ahsh."
"But tow do yuu cook it?" asked the
iorthra matron. "Tor my part I have
always thought the proper way to cook
rice was to put it on In boiling water
and cook it furiously for a balf totir or
more stirring it every now and then Vj
sefp it from sti king."
"There Is just the trouble as I fcive
eaid all in the cooking. Now the way
j we southerners took rice la to wash it
nice ana ctean crop it toio nciue ui
boiling water and then set the kettle 00
the back of the stove over a low fire
and let the rice simmer very slowly un-
til It ia done. Never never etir it.
When it is thoroughly cooked each
kernel will stand apart by itself plump
and wKt)!e If there ia any water left on
it drain it off carefully and let It etand
In a hot place for a little while. Don't
mix milk or sugar or salt or butter or
anything else in it while it ia cooking.
These can be added afterward as pre-
ferred. When the northern people
learn to cook rice properly they will
reli.-h It just as much as we of the south
do. It all depends on how it is cocked."
TOMMY AND HIS RABBIT.
Like the Groundhog for the Minister
the Poor Bunny Was a
A very proud boy was one recently i
when he asked his teacher in one of
the East aide public schools to spend !
the toura after afternoon closing time '
at his home and take dinner with him.
He was a bright student and a pre-
possessing little chap and the teacher
who had a strong liking for him ac-
cepted the invitation alike for his
pleasure and her own. She found tow-
ever relates the New York Tribune
when she reached his a'xxle that her
pupil had taken the duties of a
host on his shoul'ipr. without jriforio-
iaz tis parents of thv iritentii ii. and
wtile the greeting of the mother was!
mont cordial it was plainly per-'
tnrbed. Tommy w a tilling hi tea. her !
about the tricks of his pet rabbit when
his mother called him. He was absent
some time and when he returned there
were tears in tis eyes. The teacher
refrained from questions that w-ould
have started a fresh flood and main-
tained a one-sided conversation with
him until the mother announced tiat
"supper" was ready. There were tears
in her eyes too. and mother and son
when they seated themselves at the
table looked at each other and burst out
crying. The mother begged pardon
telling the teacher something had hap-
pened not of serious import but
enough to upset them for the time be-
ing. The teacher wondered how tse
family could afford to provide the c.'sa
of which she partook and noticed that
the mother and son ate none ef it. As
the rose from the table she said: "Now
Tommy you must show me your pet
rabbit. Perhaps I'll want to take him
borne with mo." "You will" blurted
out Tommy. In a gulping fob. "you
will take him librae with you. You've
just eaten fcira up."
