The legislature in hating u hard
time over raising tho salatips of state
officers from some $1!500 up to some
$3000 but Is seemingly lgnuiliiK 'lie

state office in Oklahoma who wnntt

of the office has a living coming
from some other source nnd wheth-
er he has or not. Is most likely to
live up whntcer salary he Is paid
for politics nnd office holding call
for an expenshe llting standaid
Hut how about the fellow who is
working ns a deputy in u county of-
fice or ns a velerk in a state office
for $75 a month? Years ago .lhat
sum provided a Rood living but to-
day no man can keep a family prop-
erly on It. The state offlco holder
is faring u deal better with his $2500
than tho deputy nnd clerk Is with
his $900. Personally We bellee the
legislature Is not getting at thejhliig
right nor giving relief where relief
If the leglslatuie frames .1 good
roads bill that will gunnintie the
construction of a highway crlss eioss-
Ing every county and connecting the
county seats with a sliding' brain of
levy ngnlnst property along the light
based on distance from the route
thus letting the counties bear part
of the burden It looks like the things
would meet popular nppinvfil. What
tho people don't want and won't
havo is anything that smacks of a
scheme for the further aggrandize-
ment of thu capital city throng.:

' The hospital Ls assured anil cer-

of last week subscribed for more

kgovd.' fifty thousand 'dollar propo-
Iwtlcn would havo hern looked upon
i'as a big deal for Durant to handle
but ht'ro'thls one "has gone over on
short notice without any nolno and
with 'ralKhty.-little -objoctlon.

(While no .more important the lintel
ji proposition' appears to bo more Im-
I mediately pressing than was the. lios
1 pltnl and there will be a hotel man
J to go Just as strong with the local

Thoe of ns who hae been in
convenlenrcd by the recent numer
ous rains which almost stopped
traffic and vertainl retarded eirly
land preparation for crops may find
solace in the figures which show
that the best iorp- have followed a
mighty wet winter and spring wNn
faimors were late getting into iho
fields. Tlc Idea is that a wet win-
tor puts a 'season in the ground th'it
takes a long hard drought to over-
rome. ' Personally we are anticipat-
ing real crops here In 1919.

is to be made nnd about the only
way there Is of determining tho

millions of dollars in experiment

THE voice of music sometimes i like an organ 'full and
deep swelling and falling now crashing out its mighty
harmonics now sobbing away into Mlcncc.
S-metimcs the voice of music is like an old violin pliycd
in tear? sad and sweet as children's eyes quivering with the e
mystic fantasy of children's thoughts and those vague secrets
that only childhood knows.
And then sometimes the voice of music is like a soft flute
trcnibline with sweetness filled now with the joy of the hrk
and again with the gentle sadness of the whip-poor-will.
All the wonderful voices of music will be your constant
companions when vou own .
