It was my good pleasure to listen
to John G. Wooley's speech last
night on the "Secret of Dtr.oeracy."
While | did not hear anything about
the secret, yet It was a good speecn
for the temperance cause. I also
had the pleasure of hearing Mr.
Wooley about 15 years ago at Mar-
lon, Indiana. He is still the same
old war horse of temperance.
His word picture of the young
minister and his wife was certainly
true to life. I happened to be en-
gaged In the temperance work as
leader of the Marion quartette at tli ■
time that Mr. Wooley was candidate
for prosident on the National Prohi-
bition ticket. He was the same con-
sistent fighter for truth and right.
Just a word with regard to the
temperance movement In general.
As Mr. Woolley has said, when the
movement was first begun It waa
rather dangerous for a man's popu-
larity to be Identified with the cause.
I do not think the sale will ever be
stopped so long as there Is about 6
cent profit in a 10 cent drink. Dut I
am glad of the change. I am gla-1
that the anti-saloon league has fo."
it's leader such a grand man as John
n. Woolley, and every Christian man |
can fight the liquor traffic regardless '
of politic.'. May the time soom come |
when Oklahoma will be a dry state- - ;
not only in theory but In truth.
Yours, I. H. DOrOHERTY,

Notes from Various m hool*.
Mr. Otho M(Murray has been sav-
ing his older pupils take the book-
from the library and read them and
then make reports of the books real
to the class. This plan has given
good success and U excellent train-
ing for the pupils.
Mr. Ed Bewley of the Yonkers
school in District 68, has the bojs ,reeg on the ground. If the grounds
of the school entered in a birdhouse j are nQt fcnced be gure t0 build som
to come out and help. Have them
bring axes and rakes and clear off
all the unnecessary brush and rake
the trash together and burn it.
The teacher ought to arrange a
short program for the morning, hav-
everybody bring dinner and serve It
on the grounds, and then devote the
afternoon to the work as part of the
program. Pile all the rocks in neat
piles in the corner of the yard where
they will be out of the way. Cut out
all the unnecessary trees but be very
careful to preserve a good shade for
the grounds. Then pile all the brush
and bum it and rake all the rubbish,
off of the grounds.
I am certain that the people in any
neighborhood in the county will help
in a move of this kind if the teach-
er will only request, their coopera-
tion. 'Where the grounds have no
trees on them you should observe ar-
bor day and plant some suitable

Mr Wrn. Ghormley of the Grand-

ready begun to prepare for tbe grad-
uating exercises for the eighth grade
