Pawhuska has a newspaper running a line that
reads something like this, “An unusual paper in an
unusual town." Yes, its an unusual paper alright. So
unusual that you will have to travel to some interior
part of Russia to find its equal.
The circulation of toe Osage County News
brings the advertiser a far greater per cent for his
money than, any other advertising medium in the
county. The reason is that we reach by far the
greatest number of people.
Pawhuska streets haw been in an excellent con-
dition—(their kind considered)—practically all fall
and winter. But, how long would they last if we
should have lota of rain? What is the best thing
to doT We leave the answer to you. Reply on
Several papers during the Hamon-8mith af-
fair carried screaming headlines, and articles that
were not fit for the minds of grown-ups, let alone
children of the country. Articles that spoke as plain
to pictures. Yet, today these Mme papers say the
"movie” should desist from plcturelslng, and capital-
ising Clara Smith. Why should the tlwatre desist,
when to* newspaper profits by the “rot" and “filth”
of such cases as these. But if the moving picture
corporations are wise they will not show such “rot". *
They will elevate their sights and will improve in-
stead of debauch the moving picture business, as
waa and is the stage of today. The newspapers—
certain ones of them, are peddling their wares to
the doors of the people, instilling Into the minds of
mere children such things as they would not learn if
the papers would bo elevating instead of degrading.
The moving picture business is shown in a house
where people go. They can abstain from such places,
but whan the paper is brought to their doori from
which they seek anllghtenmentt yet what do they

of adultery in the worst form and scandalous arti-

The Midland Valley’s railroad’s fepce along the
south side of their right-of-way between Prudom and
Leahy looks like the/ were trying to wall themselves
in. Very much on the ordor.of a prison. The only
way you can reach the Acme Laundry or any of the
other places in that part of the city, if you happen
to be in the northeast part of Pawhuska, is to go
down OMge and then over. Very unhandy, quite
often, for some.
It really looks as though the Hamon trial gave
some sort of elevation to pretty nearly everybody.
Mrs. Hamon has taken to aviation, and Claim has
signed a $25,000 per year contract with the “movies"
and her backers promise to put so much “uplift” in-
to her screen productions that the Amalgamated As-
sociation of Censors will marvel at their spiritual
beauty and utter loveliness. Even a lot of the daily
news sheets are beginnnlng to look less like a yel-
low fever warning.—Pittsburg County Guardian.
The Hominy News complains because the coun-
ty commissioners are about to begin paving a roafl
between Pawhuska and Pershing with concrete,
which costs almost as much as their brick paving
would cost them (today) (?) If Hominy can get
brick paving so cheaply, Brother Smith will you
please give us the formula and how you go.about
it. We want to use it in a little school of enlight-
enment for Pawhuska people, and, incidentally well
invite the county commissioners in on the proposi-
- tion and they might extend the road on to Hominy
—if it is agreeable to you folks—and use brick, in-
stead of concrete.
Next Tuesday is the city election. Have you
chosen your candidates? Be sure you vote for men
who have a platform of a constructive nature to
carry out. Men who have a great deal of property
interests are the ones who will want to see Pawhus-
ka go forward. But at the same time they will not
squander your money foolishly. They have worked
hard to make their money and they will give
you value received. In other words, they will put
the necessary improvements in Pawhuska, at the
cheapest price ,quality of material considered. They
are the men who want to see Pawhuska prosper,anil
go forward. These men will not put in cheap, shod-
dy material at a high price. They will always guard
your best interests.

bors always imagines his neighbors are trying to
It doesn’t matter much what your ailment is,

as true now as ever that the real cause of most

When any youth who had saved a hundred
dollars and had a job at ten dollars a week thought
he was well enough off to marry?
FEW OLD HEADS
Smith of the Hominy News in talking shop last
week, says in part:
Of the people who are now running papers or
working in newspaper shops in Osage county thefc
-are not more than three—of forty or fifty people
—who went through the mill in the old hand-set
days. John Knight of the Osage Journal, Zenor of
the Bigheart Times and the presiding elder of the
Hominy News are probably the only real veterans
in the business.
GUESS AGAIN, BROTHER
An article in the Bigheart Times of last week
gives to Bro. A. C. Zenor of the Times, John Knight
of the Osage Journal and Smith of the Hominy NeWs
the records of Osage county as old-timers in the
hand set days of newspaperdom. Better look again
brother. We herewith introduce Roy Franklin of
the Osage Chief, who is getting gray-haired in the
service beginning twenty-five years ago, C. W.
Carnes, who has also put in nearly thirty years, and
Scott Thompson, who graduated on the Missouri ri-
ver and the Great Lakes, as a pop-eyed tourist of
the 1886 class. Some day the Fairfax tourists are
coming over to Bigheart, Pawhuska and Hominy to
hold a reunion and make coffee in a tomato can
as a reminder of those happy, carefree days, when
printing was in flower and setting type was n real
And still another guess. Yes Brother Franklin
the boys forgot another one too. The editor of the
News may not be of the age of the honored gentle-
men mentioned above, but, still we have aeen some-
thing of the good old days whan we used to hand-
Mt the sheet, and by-the-way, we remember the first
machine installed on the large papers in Kanras City
We’ve had just a little experience. Have set about
the average “string" and had some time to teach the
“devil” a few tricks, too.
WHERE THE MONEY GOES.
Pawhuska citisena who paid an income tax this
year possibly never stopped to contemplate just
whore the money goes and how it is to be used. So
the following ought to be of apodal Interest: Out of
every dollar you paid aa Income tax, 68c goes to
pay off our world-war debt'and the debt we contract
od while tunning the railroads) 80o of it la spent
on our present army and navy) the other l>c goes
to pay salaries of public officials, cost of harbor im-
provement, good roads, edwtatlon and peace-time ac-
• Doesn’t it look like they've got the cart before
the horse T • Doesn’t It look llko wo ought to airing
% war dsbt our a long period by spending the 12c
on It and thqSJVon education and good roads 1 When
we ponder over these figures there’s no wonder there
is such a clamor against the apportlonlst of the In-
come tag, and no wonder that so many are praying
for igllof from It during this generation.

^In Poultry From
"The S ta te Behind Iis State Banks
Even such a humble industry as poultry raising yields millions of dol-
lars yearly in Oklahoma. Most of.this weath is produced on the farms
and goes to the women as part of their share of the farm income.
It is a great comfort to theso hard-working women to know that every
dollar of the butter and egg money they deposit in the State Banks is
insured against loss by the DEPOSITORS’ GUARANTY LAW.
Women in most of the other states are not protected in this way. Okla-
homa was the first state to pass a law guaranteeing bank deposits. For
over thirteen years, we have had the safest banking laws in the world.
Put your money in this bank. It will be safer than whon it is hidden
away at home. We also pay Interest on time deposits. So your money
works for you while we are keeping it absolutely safe.
"No Depositor has ever Lost a Dollar In a State
. Bank In Oklahoma."
