Did you vote right?
"What will the harvest be?"
It is time now to stop talking
politics and go to work.
The passing of Senator Jones of
Arkansas will prove a boon to the
democratic party and bis defeat
will cause tho shedding of no tears
in the Indian country.
Vinita is the only town in the
Cherokee nation that has a daily
newspaper: It takes bustle and
business enterprise to maintain it
but it is worth many times to the
town what it costs. Vinita is the
best advertised town in the whole
Indian country and it ia very
largely due to the efforts of the
Chieftain daily and weekly.
The "late" nuisance is especial
y exasperating at church. About
the lime the preacher gets fairly
started to have a number of "lates"
come stalking in must be trying on
a minister's nerves. At a theatre
in London not long ago the an
nouncement was advertised that
tickets would not be honored un.
less the holders were in their
seats when the curtain was raised
the entire audience was seated and
there was no disturbance.
The arrest and conviction of a
few fraudulent voters at this Unas
may prove of incalculable benefit
to this country in future years.
Conditions are more or lens chaotic
in all parts of the Indian Territory

Who seeks to debauch the ballo
vrill have a saluiory effect in after
years. The man who sells his
vot is unworthy of the privilege
and the man who purchases it is
also criminal in slightly different
degree. Upon the purity of the
ballot rests the institutions ot our
government and the mau who
thus corrupts it is a revolutionist
and a menace to society. Such
characters ought to be hunted out
and prosecuted to the extent of
Pliny on the War Path.
Yesterday was a hard lay on
the slot machines and gaming de
vices in Holdenville. District at
torney Soper came down from Vi
nita to attend to some business
and the slot machine at Hotel
Scott attracted hie attention. They
bave attracted the attention ot
others but with different results
He got Marshal Kaase and ordered
a raid made on all of the machines

THE IDEAL PHYSIQUE.
there Are Hut Pew I'eraona llavl
the Measurement nf Perfect
"The tailor who spends his life in
taking- human measurements could
probably tell an interesting1 story
about the decline physically of men.
and women" said a man who takes
a deep interest in physical culture
and other processes tending' to ar-
rest deteriorating conditions accord-
ing to the New Orleans Times-Democrat
"i doubt if the measurements
taken by tailors will show many per-
fect men and women. Too many
men are wearing 14 collars and too
m a 11 j' women are short on waist
dimensions. I was glancing- through
l'ourinan's book a few days ago and
1 was struck b3' the dimensions
agyed upon by the best and most
nurtientic authorities for physical
perfection in both man and woman.
Take the measurements for instance
of the perfectly proportioned man
with a height of 0 feet 2 inches;
girth of chest 48 inches; girth of
waUt :i8 inches; length of upper leg
na inches; length of lower leg 14 Vi
inches; largest girth of thigh 22
inches; girth of calf 16 inches;
length of arm 20 inches and weight
100 pounds. (Jo to the tailor and ask
him how many men come up to this
standard. 1 imagine that one would
tpend much time before finding the
perfect physical conditions in con-
junction in a single man.
"The fact of the business is that
these proportions are the' result of
idealistic theorizing. A man would
be perfect indeed physically who
could even show a reasonable ap-
proximation of this standard. Our
tailor's record would probably dis-
appoint us badly find we would like-
ly become confirmed believers in the
doctrine of physical degeneracy in
so far as members of our sex is con-
cerned. Man has been dwindling
somewhat even in the range of one's
own memory. One need not go to
the tailors nor to the vast wealth
of statistics which. have leen com-
piled by persons who take a pecul-
iar interest in man's physical aspect.
One is conscious of being smaller
than one's father and less robust
and lacking in that hardiness of tem-
perament found in the tore and the
grandsire. Yet the tailor's record
will probabl3- ishow a few isolated in-
stances where men have preserved
the proportions found in the physi
cal measurements of the perfect man.
And this after all. is the goal to-
ward which physical culture i drift-
ing. It is not so much n question
of larger men in stature but rather '
a question of men more perfectly bal- ;
nnced physically men linf part
will approximate at 3eat the equi-
librium found in the perfect meas-
urements of the physical culture doc-
trinaire. If one must weigh l'X
pounds and 1aod up to a height of
over six feet ote might a well give
lip on the Mart. Hut one may nt least
approximate the ideal proportion
and this if what physical -jhure pro-
poses to do.
