A Few Suggestions For Boos'-
A good way to make the world
better is to begin with the home
Why should the town muzzle
dogs and not knockers?
Be a live one and the town will
never be a dead one.
It improves the soup to throw a
little pepper in to it. Same with a
If you spend all that you earn,
some other fellow is banking your
Many a young man goes away t
seek his fortune when fortune
is seeking for him at home.
You've got to be a citizen in
order to vote ; but you've got to do
a good deal more than vote to be a
A town is like a girl. It's
wonderful what a little fixing up
will do for her.
Opportunity knocks once a
every man's door; better be at
home when the lady calls.
A town is like a perambulator;
it isn't much good unless it is
pushed. Don't spend all your
time telling what you could do if
you had some time.
There is only one better man than
the man who gets behind and pushes
in an effort to improve the town and
that's the man who goes ahead and
Miss Dollie Shaver presented

bucket of the largest and juiciest
peaches we have seen this year.
They were certainly enjoyed-
Miss Dollie has the thanss of the
office "force" for the fine treat.
The prospects for an abundant
corn crop were never better. The
excess rain-fall, while damaging
and delaying the wheat harvest,
has made the best early corn crop
ever grown in Oklahoma.

What Bill Did.
Bill Turner was a farmer, he
labored all his life. He didn't
have no schoolin' and neither had
his wife. But Bill was built for
business and made the wheels go
rouud, and left a healthy fortune
when they put him under ground
He was always taking chances,
paid a hundred for a bull. His
neighbors called him crazy, but he
left a stable full of cows that broke
the record, making butter by th^
ton, an' Bill had bis picture printed
in tne Squeedunk Weekly Sun.
He had newfangled notions of
making farming pay. He even
bought a fool machine to help him
load his hay. The neighbors
fairly snorted when they saw the
bloomin' thing; said Bill would
never make it work. It wasn't
worth a ding! Bill didn't say a
single word, an' didn't care a darn
'bout what they said, fer slick as
grease, his hay went in the bain
an hour before a thunder storm
came sailin' out tteit way and
caught his neighbors in a pinch
and spoiled their new mown hay
Bill's neighbors put their milk in
cans, and set'em in a tank. Bill
skimmed his milk with a machine
and turned it with a crank. Smith
chops his firewood with an ax
Bill used some gasoline and saws
a hundred cords a day with another
blame machine. Today Bill's
wife rid :s in a car and dresses up
in silk. Smith's wife rides in a
wagon and keeps on skimming milk.

A National Creed.

the following as a National Creed,
by which the men. women and
children ot America to affirm their
'I believe in the United States,
one indivisible; in her mission as
the champion of humanity—as the
friend ot the weak and distressed ;
in the singleness, dignity and in-
violabilty of American <_itizenship;
in the validity of our national tra-
ditiosn; in peace with honor; in
friendship with all nations that
respect our rights; in entangling
alliances with none ; in reasonable
preparations for natlonai defense
by sea and by land; in shirking no
sacrifice needed to hand down to
the future the priceless treasures
bequeathed to us by the past; in
the necessity of keeping the west-
ern hemisphere frea from the in-
trusions ot European institutions
ambitions; in the capacity of free
men for self-government; in the
love oi home and country , and in
the unflinching resolution that
government of the people, for the
people by the people shall net
perish from the earth."
Statislics as to the supply of
cattle indicate that the cost of beef
should not go up. But statistics
have never been considered re-
liable as a basis ot prediction.
A Discreet Daddy.
My daddy's always telling me
About how good he used to be
He did what he was told to do
And he was neat and tidy, too;
And h? would rather work than
But when my grandpa's visiting
with us, my daddy, if I'm bad
Forgets to say a single thing
About his goodness as a lad
My daddy says he never told
A fib or made his parents scold
Because he did things that were
He always t'ied to help along
By being good and kind and sweet
And eating whatjboys ought to eat;
But when my gtandma visits here
My daddy never boasts to me
About how good and sweet and dear
A little boy he used to be
My daddy always took delight
In doing what was right
When he was just about my size
He wanted to be great and wise ;
But when my grandpa comes and
My grandma's here to visit, then
My daddy merely gives a wink
Or smiles, if I've beer, kind of
wild and does't try to make us think
That he was once an angel child.
