The word "graft" like appendi-
citis is only a new name for an old
disease. It is only a form of steal-
ing without thi attachment of crime
or possibility of punishment.
Probably no article of consump-

by the European war than sugar,

" Yes," said the good woman
who was describing the last illness
of a friend, she was taken suddenly
sick with pantomime poisonin?. and
four doctors came to the house ar.d
insulted about her and diagrammed
her case very closely. They de-
cided that she hid eaten some fish
or something that had paragraphs
in it, end so they gave her x hypo-
critical injection of a serial that
would destroy the bascila, but it
didn't seem to help any, as she
was soon in a state of chromo."
The Cost of war.
Human life is not taken into
consideration in ccunting the cost
of war. The following from the
Youth's Comptnion sums up the
cost of some of the late wars from
the dollar standpoint, as follows
"England's war with the Trans
vaal was called a "little war
but when the war was over, the
Chancellor of the Exchequer told
Parliament that it had cost Great
Brittain $1,085,000,000. The
fighting lasted two years and eight
months; therefore one belligerent
state spent on the average of $1
000,000 a day. ^
"The daily cost to our govern-
ment of the Spanish Waj during the
time of active operations was al-
most the same. After the war be
tween Japan and Russia, it was recic-
ened that ihe two powers had spent
fully $3,000,000 daily. Both Rus-
sia and Japan are comparatively
poor; ihey had to iaise most of the
war worn other countries, and these
nations had to provide, for a con-
test in which they had no imme-
diate interest, not far from $1,000,
000,000—all taken from their own
productive finance industry. As
for the recent Balkan War, London
economiststs have calculated that
the five combatants, in the twenty-
five weeks of fighting, actually spent
at least $450,000,000 "
Little wars like some of the "re-
belli:ns,' in the Central American
states are the butt of a good many
jokes but the stupendous military
contest now on in Europe appals the
joking paraprapher. There are
too many cries of anguish from the
wounded and wails of sorrow from
mothers and widows and orphins-
following in the wake of the ma ch-
ing and counter-marching armies,
for anyone but a veritable ghoul to
attempt to joke about this awful
calamity of war. In the history of
the world tnere is no record of one-
fourth as many warriors at one time
concentrating for death grapple.
Neutral nations stand aghast await-
ing the revelation of horrors that is
soon to follow.
Sam Off At Last.
Eirst Shipload of Negroes jo the
Promised Land in Africa sails f.om
Galveston on Liberia.
At last "Chief" Alfred Sam with
his ship, the "Liberia" has sailed
from Galveston with the first load
of negjoes bound for the gold coast
of Africa, where they will go to

negroes before they were broushtto

the voyage. He secured thousands
of dollars from negroes with which
to buy the boat and money for de
veloping purposes after they have
reached the new home. His scheme
was opposed by many negroes in
Oklahoma and declared to be a fake,
but Sam insisted th^ he meant
what he said. The last trainload
of negroes left Weleeka only a few
days ago to take voyage on the
'Liberia" at Galveston. The boat
had been there for several months
The Grist of Death.
Last week was another period of
tragedy in the oil fields and towns.
In Cushing a number of people
were held up and robbed, and the
police trailed down two men and
attempted to arrest them, when one
of them pulled a gun and began
shooting at the officer. After fir-
ing three shots at the officer and
missing, the officer fired at the man,
wounding him in the arm. and fin-
ally killing nim. with a shot through

fight with a barber and got whip-
ped, later the same man with a
companion started rouble in .the
pool hall with the barber, and as-
saulted him with pop bottles, when
he pulled the gun and shot fhem
both dead, firing only one shot at
each man. ^
Also in the south field an auto
was passing across a low hollo*

tent that it exploded from the
tights or other means from the auto

expensive proposition, to seenre a

Moody to be Tried Here.
In the district court of Lincoln

There are just three events in a
man's life. The first one is the
moonlight night under the trees
when she "answers the caress with
the unwritten declaraticn that as
surely as the vine grows around
the stump she loved me." The
second is that time when you kneel
on a bed of flowers and hear those
which unite two lives for better Or
worse, in sickness and in health,
tiil "death do us part "
And then, like a burst of sun-
shine out of the clouds, like "the
shadow cf a rock in a weary land,"
comes the baby to the house. The
realization of the hope of prosper-
ity is felt then to its full, and a man
stops and takes inventory right
then and there as as has never done
before. He dreams such dreams
as never before illuminated his
mind, he is in an atmosphere of ex-
ultation, of spiritual blessedness as
never came before and as will never
come again. He travels on roads
strewn with the dust of the stars
and breathes the air of heaven itself.
If it were not for the babies.
God bless them all and bless the
mothers, what would this old world
be? . What would be the incentive
of men to continue the fight in which
they have grown old and gray?
What would spur the laging foot-
steps and inspire the tired mind?
The baby in the house is the
strongest tie which bind men and
women in this world. Th? only
trouble is, the only regret is that
ihere are homes without babies,
homes nne childish prattle does
not dissapate "all the cares that in-
fest the day," where the pressure
of little arms is not the great re-
straining force and appeal JJof the
little voice is not all powerful,—
