Hon. Dick T. Morgan, a republican
candidate for Congress was in Wood-
ward this week shaking hands with
the politicians; and we would like to
see Mr. Morgan get the nomination
on the republican ticket, as he has
the appearance of a good man and
we desire that the Democratic nomi-
nee have the honor of turning down a
Can't Carry It.
All talk about J02 McNeal of Guth-
rie being able to carry the Woodward
county delegation at the delegate
nominating convention is the vilest
tiction. But even if he should secure
the nomination he could not carry the
county at the November elections,
owing to his connection with the
county court house deal. He is
amply supplied with the “sinews of
war,” but with all this he could not
persuade the struggling tax-payers
that he was their friend. His con-
nection with the court house deal
would lead the tax payers to believe
that he would take a hand in almost
any game that might be presented to
enrich his pocket book. There are
a few politicians in this country that
are undoubtedly for him, with the
hope that he will knock the head out
of his barrel, but such characters are
few and far between.—Curtis Courier.
There may be a few of the present
county officials who will have to give
an account of themselves on election
day in reference to the court house
and similar deals.

"fatty Seen*" b> South Africa.
A London cablegram, under date of
March 16, to the New York World
says: “The latest returned Sooth
African hero is Sergeant Paish,of the
Glamorganshire militia. He hanged
with his own hands four Boers ac-
cused of breaking their parole, a
punishment of which in itself is a
breach of civilised usages. What
specially aroused jingo admiration
was Paish’s description of the ‘pretty
scene’ created by the wife of one of
his victims when she saw him practis-
ing the hanging beforehand with an
old anvil. This practice was carried
on in a public place so the women
could not fail to see." If reports are
true, there have been many “pretty
scenes" in South Africa similar to the
one described by this British officer.
It is strange, however, that a civilised
people could tolerate the public re-
cital of these “pretty scenes” or
could regard as a hero a man who
had made extraordinary efforts to in-
flict grief upon women whose burden
was already too heavy. As the truth
concerning the South African war
begins to leak out, the world begins
to suspect that the methods employed
by the British against the Boers "are
in keeping with the methods employ-
ed by the British of the time of
George III. against the American
Following is a fair comparison of
the above article:
The criticisms that have been in-
dulged in by some of the local county
papers in respect to a woman being
mixed up in McNaught's disappear-
ance as published in this paper, is
nothing more than maudlin or mawk-
ish journalistic toe-jam. This paper
stated it as a report or rumor. When
a man does an outrageous thing a
paper has a right to publish rumors.
For McNaught’s family we entertain
the highest respect—they are not re-
sponsible for his cussedness. The
Cartis Courier, in coming bluntly out
and stating that McNaught left
property to pay his debts in plenty,
and then in the same breath accuses
his creditors of talking everything
shows the editor of that journal is
PARTICEP8 CRiMiNis, and that he may
be in “kersnooks" with his missing
townsman. It was RUMORED that
he was murdered, and a gentleman
arbitrairily slapped into jail and de-
prived of liberty without a moment’s
warning. The manner of his depart-
ure, showed that there was method,
meanness and cussedness in him, and
for his own local paper to berate
another another paper, and also men
who had trusted this scallawag, and
try to make him out a Hebrew Joseph,
would be enough evidence in our
opinion, that if the writer was the
sheriff of the county, he would be
promptly put into the official sweat-
box and there detained until he blab-
bed out all he knew about this matter.
While we don’t think McNaught has
a gentlemanly streak in him, how-
ever, we have more respect for him
than we have for the measly editors
of the Courier and Dispatch, who
are now posing as his defenders and
are trying to cover up his tracks.—
Woodward State Republican.
The above is real republican or yel-
ow journalism. The writer of the
above article should be put in tbe
sweat box and prove to the satisfac-
tion of Mr. McNaught’s family that be
is a scallawag. We do not desire to

done so. But will uphold a woman

And so far as McNaught being a
scallawag or criminal, it has never
been proven, and even if he is, isn’t it
an injustice to make any mention of
his family affairs. Some respect
should at least be shown to them in
time of trouble.

7L Bat Fertilizer For Flower Gardent.
The best fertilizer for the flower
garden is old, well-rotted manure
from the cowyard. But those living
in the city cannot obtain this. A good
substitute for it is fine bonemeal.
Use it in the proportion of half a
pound to a square yard. Scatter in
over the soil after you have spaded
and pulverized it, and work it in well
with a rake.—April Ladies’ Home
