and we will drop it with the
statement that Mr. Reach’s ver-
sion is wide of the truth.
We were in hopes, when we
published the little article in inf-
erence to Mr. Resell’a comments
on Wayland’s death, to open up
a series of arguments with the
editor of the Messenger, but we
seem to have-stirred up some-

genuineness of the “oath." We

ticle from a defender, especially
as tlit‘ so-called oath lias been go

and lias been given much public-
ity, until it seems to us that in
fairness the other side should
have a hearing. Lot someone
with authority come
with a defense or denial.
The Asher Progress doesn't
think tin1 victory of Woodrow
Wilson amounts to much. Says
the Progress: “Wilson wins
with only 5,815 more votes than
Bryan.” The Progress reminds
usofthe old fellow who heard that
the Hood had drowned his wife
and six children, but found they
iiad been saved, though his house
had floated away. “All”, said
he, “it wasn’t much of a shower
after all.”—McLoud Observer.
Look here, son Dudley; tote
fair. You don’t give the sense
of the Progress article, and you
know it. You don’t give the
Progress, or the old man either,
a square deal. That old mTtn
had his wife with him, visiting
over in the Tribbcy neighbor
hood, and it was liis mother-in-
law and six step children lie
heard was drowned. You can’t
blame him for being disappoint-
ed, some, when he found them
all there, alive. Now get tilings
as they are, next time, son Dud-
ley. Stick to facts. Tell the
truth; tin' whole truth.

smell tlie Messenger office needs
fumigating. Epithets are not
argument. We don’t mind the
“pinhead,” nor tlie “2x4;” but
Oh, that “humunculum;” how
mad that does make us.
The editor of the Messenger
appears to lack mentality suffic-
ient to enter into an argument
und attempts to cover his mental
deficiency by resorting to hurl-
ing epithets. We can’t help
feeling sorry for him, however.
He can’t help it. He didn’t have

Oil, Goodness! What a disturb-
ance our little comment on edi
tor Reach’s Wayland article lias
raised in the sanctum of the
Earlsboro Messenger. In the
issue of Nov. 28, all the first page
of tlie Messenger that is not ih
cupied by advertisements and a
large portion of the last and onl,\
other home printed page, is de
voted to calling Putnam a 2x4,
pinhead and “humunculum of a
tiling,” and to the explanation of
what Mr. Resell regards as Put
nain’s attempts to “crown him-
self king of tlie newspaper field”
in the southern part of the conn
ty. Three-fourths of the entire
available home news space of the
Messenger is given over to this
tirade against Putnam, and it
must be interesting jeading foi
the Messenger readers u ho prob
ably never heard of this partiru
lar Putnam before and us the ar
tide that so stirred up Mr. Resell
is not reproduced, they must be
wondering what is causing the
Messenger editor to have such
violent fits. He hardly refers to
Wayland except when lie accuses p,
Putnam of “joining the red rag
gang,” which confirms our Salt
Creek correspondent’s opinion
that the Messenger editor takes

Remarkable Success of these
Talented Physicians in the Treat
ment of disease.
OFFER THEIR SERVICES FREE
Tlie United Doctors licensed
by the State of Oklahoma, for
the treatment of deformities and
all nervous and chronic diseases
of men, women and children,
offer to all who call on this trip,
consultation, examination, advice
f ree, making no charge whatever,
except the actual cost of medi-
cine. All that is asked in return
for these valuable services is
that every person treated will
state the result obtained to their
friends and thus prove to the
sick and afflicted in every city
and locality, that at last treat-
ments have been discovered that
are reasonable sure and certain
in their effect.
These doctors are considered
| by many former patients among
America’s leading stomach and
nerve specialists and are experts
in tlie treatment of chronic dis-
eases, and so great and wonder-
ful have been their results that
in many cases it is hard indeed
to find the dividing line between
skill and miracle.
Diseases of tlie stomach, in-
testines, liver, blood, skin, nerv-
es, heart, spleen, kidney or
bladder, rheumatism, sciatica,
diabetis, bed wetting, leg ulcers,
weak lungs and those afflicted
with long standing, deep'seated,
chronic diseases, that have
baffled tlie skill of the family
physicians, should not fail to call.
If you are troubled with Piles
you should be sure to call.
Don’t wait for more serious com-
plications to tell you of tlie
dangers of this cruel disease,
act now. Tlie United Specialists
have cured cases where doctors
and even operations have utterly
failed. A cure in the most se-
vere case is practically certain.
According to their system no

Surgeons” by doing away with
