More than seven thousand stud"
ents, the majority of them teachers-
or persons preparing to teach, ari
enrolled in the Summer term of
nine state educational institutions
according to reports just received
by Supt. R H. Wilson. This is
an increase cf almost five thousand
over the summer enrollment in
1912 ; the enrollment for the two
years are respectively 7074 ar.d
23C5. According to the reports
received, about 95 per cent of
those who are attending the ses-
sions this summer are doing full
credit work leading to graduation.
This is an unusual record. The
enrollment to ,date by institut-
ions is: University, 464; Tahle-
quah Normal, 857 ; Durant Normal.
826 ; Edmond Normal, 2212; Alva
Normal, 647; Ada Normal, 850,
Weatherford Normal, 642; Tonka-
wa, Preparatory school, 368, and
Claremore Preparatory school 208.
Superintendent Wilson is send-
ing out the school laws to the ccun-
ty superintendents as fast as they
are received from the printer.
Advance copies have been mailed
to all county and city superintend-
ents. The county superintendents
will distribute the books, one to
each school board and one copy to
each teacher. Supt. Wilson re-
quests school officers 2nd teachers
to secure a copy of the school laws
from the county sifperintendent
and not write to the state superin-
tendent for such copy.
Teach The Young Filipino.
Within a few years of America's
possession of the Philippines
600,000 bright Fiiipino boys and
girls were found in schoolhouses
scattered all over the islands study-
ing moderu textbooks illustrated
from Philippine life. Fifteen hun-
dred American schoolteachers had
come over ten thousand miles to
the debilitating climate of the is-
lands to eneble these boys and
girls to know the facts of history,
the wonders of life, the secrets of
Then these young people told
the story to their parents, who had
never been educated under the
Spanish regime. In fact, to be
educated was the privilege only of
the Estrado, or upper classes.
And these Filipino "children told
their parents they must open the
windows of their nipia (straw
thatched) huts at night and let in
the fresh air; and that it was not
sanitary for each member of the
family in turn to smoke the long,
black family cigar which was sus-
pended from the ceiling. They
told them, too, that water must
be boiled to prevent the spread of
typhoid, which had steadily deci-
mated the population.—Christian

Last Friday a cannon was hauled
through Yale enroute for one of
the tank farms southeast of town.
The outside world hardly under-
stand the use of a cannon in the
oil business, but they are quite
useful under certain conditions.
They are used to shoot holes in
the big steei tanks of oil when tkey
get on fire from any cause, to let a
portion of the oil out in the big
earth basins around the tank.
This prevents the oil from boiling
over and flooding the country with
the flaming foaming oil that is a
fearful danger to everything near
when this occurs. As long as the
tanks can be kept from boiling
over the fire cannot do much harm
only to the tank that is burning.
In this manner the cannons are
highly useful at times and are kept
at all the tank farms. One of
those great tanks on fire makes a
sight n$ver to be forgotten, if one
has a close view of them. The
furious flames leaping and roaring
the dense clouds cf smoke, the in-
tense heat, all combines to produce
a marvelous and werrid speotacle.
People outside of the oil fields
have little idea of the size of those
mo.ister tanks. They are in re-
ality great lakes of the oil rather
than tanks in the usual under-
standing of tanks, hence when one
of them gets on fire tber. is no
known method of saving ihem and
all that can be done is to prevent
them from spreading the fire to
other tank* or property in the vi-
cinity —Yale Record.
Bank Robbers To Be Tried.
Judge Chas. B. Wilson Jr. will
convene a session of the district
court at Chandler on July 19.
During that time the case against
Henry Starr, Louis Estes, Bud
Maxwell, Sawyers and Johnson,
alleged robbers Of the two banks at
Stroud, will be called for trial —
Kansas women can snore all they
want to. A wise judge over there
has decided that a man has not just
cause for divorce because his wife
snores in her sleep.
Heavy rains the past week have
caused high waters and destroyed
millions of crops and other prop

Sirup Made From Apples.
A new process has been devel-
oped for making table sirup from
cider. This should be good news
for farmers who allow thousands of
bushels of apples to go to waste
under the trees on account of lack
of market for the kind of apples
that usually are thus neglected.
Orchards must be well cared for in
order to produce apples which have
the requisite color, flavor and
keeping qualities to make them a
premium in the market.
Making windfall apples intc table
sirup opens a field whicn may prove
as profitable as a sugar camp. The
culls and surplus apples are made
into raw cider, which is treated with
pure mlik of lime to neutralize the
malic acid. The subsequent opera-
tion resembles maple sirup making
in that the liquid is heated, filtered
and evaporated. Another filtering
process removes the crystals of cal-
oium malate.and the result is a sir.
up of clear ruby or amber color,
which, when sealed in cans, will
keep indefinitely. Only seven gal-
lons of cider are required to make
a gallon of apple sirup.
Age of Horses.
The age of a horse is most easily
deteimined by the cups in the teeth.
At four years the hors^ has his
permanent front teeth. At five
there are lower nippers. At six
these cavaties disappear in the two
center lower nippers. Two more
lose their cavaties for each year to
the eighth, then the two center
ipper nippers lose their cavaties,
and each year two more, until at
the age of ten the teeth are all
smooth, or retain only a small
black speck. After the age of ten
the length of the teeth and tushes
must be judged—even then the age
can be determined approximately.
