SIX CAHo rHUI I
Earlsboro and surrounding
country are hard to excell for
vegetable, fruit, coni, oats and
cotton. Two weeks ago three
cars of fine, big water lielons
were shipped front this point
to northern cities, and this
week some of the finest, largest
peaches are being shiped to
northern markets—three car-
loads of them! That makes six
cars to this time. Earlsboro is
on the map and her enterpris-
ing farmers are helping to put
her there still more. This is * *
the place on earth to live, for
litre ii is that thrift and unitv
are found in every farmer and
merchant. People are coming j
to Earlsboro from various sect-
ions of Oklahoma, and there’s!
a reason. Come now and locate

A canning factory for Karls-
horo would be a fine thing.
One is certainly uended. Whv
not let the farmers get togetliei*
and build a canning factory in
this town? It would create a
greater demand for your fruit,
and would cause many a man
to move to this section of the
county because of our enter-
prise. Talk this matter over
and see what you can do. A

On Tuesday a little boy and
girl made their appearance at
the home of W- C. Bruce and
asked to be taken in. They
were such sweet, innocent ap-
pearing little creatures that
their appeal won its way to the
sympathetic heart of this good
man that he decided they
should share his home. Our

Mr. Francis X- Resell,
My Dear Friend,
Unseeming and rude you must deem
it that I have not ’ere this joined your host of friends in wish-
ing you and that exceedingly splendid new “Earlsboro Mes-
senger” mitch Oklahoma sunshine and a most hearty, sincere
“Ad Multos Annos!” Now, if you please, do not dip your
stylus into venom and call the long delay of these lines care-
lessness or lack of interest in your beauteous weekly literary
venture, but rather believe me when I do say that a supera-
bundance of work and too much “Ilelios ’ have caused the
This morning, however, although it is quite warm in
the house, and feathered songsters call me with vacational
carols to the cool, poetic bowers of the nearby moss-clad brook,
I must and will stay long enough to shake hands with the
sturdy Earlsboro newsboy and wish him success, heaps of gold
and a large list of enthusiastic subscribers. Also do I hope
that Earlsboro will fully appreciate the “Messenger” and,
instead of knoking the paper, as most of towns do, rather help
it along and thus make of the Earlsboro Messenger the best
newspaper in the whole state of Oklahoma-
Your sincere friend,
(Rev.) F. P. Grabig.

Here arc some points in window
gardening that it Is well to keep In
mind. The amateur will find them of
unusual value in guiding him to suc-
cess until he has learned what to do
and how to do it for himself. Keep a
nail or an old fork at hand, and stir
the soil of your house plants as regu-
lurly as you stir that of the garden
plant. With no w-oeds to spur us on,
we are apt to forget that the earth
must bo k-opt loooc and friable to ad-
Pinch the terminal buds from the
geraniums when they have reached
the proper size and induce them to
become thick and robust in growth.
Always keep all decaying leaves and
flowers closely cropped. They are a
useless drain upon the plant. Never
drop them upon the surface of the
soil. They are unsightly, and form
a hiding place for insects.
Some of the cacti, the agave and
other subtropical plants require rest
during the winter, and should only
have water to prevent drying.
Cincinnati has recently opened a
municipal domestic laundry where
poor women of the tenement districts
may take the family clothing and do
their own w ashing with the aid of the
most up to date machinery. ThuB all
the modern laundry mechanisms are
brought within reach of the poorest
The equipment includes enough pow-
er washers, driers and electric irons
to accommodate 500 family washings
each week and the city is preparing
to build more laundries of like nature.
The idea originated with the Board of
Health, which was quick to recognize
the sanitary advantages derived from
removing clothes washing operations
from the living and sleeping rooms of
the tenement dwellers.—Popular Me-

There Is but one plan upon which
we may build beautiful cities. We
must have a commission of architects,
landscape gardeners and a few ad-
vanced thinkers from (he ranks of bus-
iness to devise public improvements
with a view to beautifying the city.
Then lei the city take up these plans
seriously, and no matter how slowly,
do every piece of work entered upon
in Btrict accordance with these plans
Slowly but surely the development of
beauty and fitness will come, and in
the end the model city w ill surely un-
fold. We aae almost criminal In that

Best Street Surfacing.

It requires only a few months to be-
