TWENTY SIXTH YEAR— Nl'KEER 13
OKLAHOMA CITY, Dec. 10.—
The biennial report of the state de-
partment of education will be off
the press this week, this department
being the first one to receive Its
report from the printer. The coun-
ty superintendents of the state have
made requisition foi copies to be
furnished each school district of the
respecitve counties. Other copies
will be furnished the state super-
intendents of other states, members
of the legislature, all libraries In
the state and principal libraries of
the United States. To supply these
demands Superintendent Wilson
made requisition for 7,500 books,
the contTi t being awarded by the
State Pr"it • for J1.200. Two
years ago 10,000 copies were print-
ed at a cost of $3,000.
The report makes a comprehensive
statement of the affairs of the com-
mon schools of the state, gives all
the data required by law and in-
cludes a brief history of the educa
tlonal development of the stae from
the time the first school was es-
tablished in the Indian territory to
the present day. The report of tlit
state board of education is included
in the same book. This part of
the reports deal with the adminis-i
tration of the state schools under
the direction of this board and
shows the amounts of the various
appropriations and itemized state-
ments of how and for what the;
money was spent.
Of course you do. Every Intelligent man rrcognizeft (he im-
portant I'lict that life insurance is a ocxl tiling, that tire insurance is
a goutl thing for burns, houses an 1 furniture. A great many farmers
in this country are protected aguin l loss by lire on their houses and
barns but they ho far have failed to p ide insurance against n failure of
crops. During ♦he past ten years < herokee county farmers have rnls-
• ■(I but two good "orn crops and Hi !r failure to raise corn has not
been entirely due to lack of cultlv ition but more particularly due to
luck of rain fall during the season lien it is absolutely necessary to
have rain in order to insure a crop of corn. In most states the corn
crop is the principal feed crop aii'l up until last year Indian corn has
been the chief feed crop of Cherokee county.
Farmers of Cherokee County w >ul(l do well to adopt KAFFIRCORN
AS AX INSURANCE CHOI*. if ev ry farmer in Cherokee County will
plant ut least live acres to Kaffirco n in the spring of 11)13 they will
not only be insured against a fail ire of feed crop, but will pave the
way to making Cherokee County w'.at it should lie agriculturally. I.and
owner** should encourage the tenn'lit to plant Katl'ircoru and if neces-
sary, should insert in their contra t that their teunaiit must plant at
least live Hires of KaiTireorn. By doing so they will not only help the
tennant but will improve the generil condition of the country. Where
there is lots of feed there is gencr illy prosperity.

If the letters fail to bear postage
