One great question of state -as been disposed of
anyway. We notice that all the duily papers contain
account of tne fact that "rat; ' hjivo ben sat down upon,
or removed at least, from tho heads of those who will
dominate the society at Washington. Wo wer some-
what com • raid about this matter, and glad to know that
it will no longer be an open question. If some sensible
woman would lead a movement that would say that
each lady of tho land would dress to suit the ta^te ot
her uusbaud, rather than the behest of .-ome millinery
establishment, she would immortalize herslf, save the
appearance of many good looking girl, and also save a
good many sheckels for the public generally.
One of the bright young men in Washington is W. M.
Wlialen, of Nebraska, lie Is the private secretary of Con-
gressman McGulia, of Lincoln, and it will be well for
tho.-Jfl who watch tne futuro to keep their eyes upon hitn.
TO THE VOTERS OF EL RENO
I hereby announce myself as an inependent candidate

city of El Reno, at the election to be held, Tuesday the

Senator Owen has been given one of the best posi-
tions in the gift of the United States senate, and his ap-
pointment as chairman of the finance committee is a
deserved honor, and will meet with the approval of the
.people everywhere. Senator Owen nas shown some
coinage in his frank statement that lie does not believe
| in a national guaranty bank law. His utterances, as pub-
lished, seem to indicate that he believes in some sort of
bank insurance, that would guarantee and protect depos-
itors, but that as far as a federal law governing the
whole proposition, lie is opposed to it. \\ nile we believe
that the guaranty law, so far as states are concerned, is j
aero to stay, yet there is a wide difference of opinion as
to the manner in which it should be enforced. These j
laws were made hurriedly, right at the closing of the
Roosevelt panic, and some of them were passed without j
as much consideration as should have been given .them.
Senator Owen .-hows some wisdom when ho says that
some system of guaranty should be provided for depos-
itors, but that this should not be in the nature of a fed-

While absent from the city some miscreant carried off
the staff iiiion which we have leaned for many days.
This consisted oC a leather covered cane, which has been
our friend under many diverse circumstances. In the
dark ntgnts, when tne rain was falling, or the sleet
striking into our face, we found this can to he our best

Some very noticeable things happened during the
inauguration week at Washington. There are some
places there which are considered sacred ground, and
rightly so. When these places w.ve passed, such as the
building where Abraham Lincoln was assassinated, or
the room in which he died, many heads v.e^e bowed in
respectful deference, and nearly every one uncovered
their head. Others, however, pased along without no-
tice, seeming not to understand that they were standing
within the shadow of a memory that will live forever. In
one place the clothes that Lincoln wore when he was
last alive are on exhibition, and above the case in which
they are iteld, are the words, "silence." In many instan-
ces this mandate is kept, while in many others some new-
ly married bride, or some couple out for a good time,
giggle as they go by. Partisanship was not very noti-
ceable during tnese proceedings, and what was seen came
from those who lived in the world. One old gentleman
hid himself during the parade because he would not per-
mit himself to witne-'s the inauguration, and showed some
friend, a--> It helped us to resist tlhe pow _

Tne leading agricultural subject
of the day is the silo, and its coming
is of National importance. No sub-
ject is receiving so much attention
from the Experiment Stations, • Farm
papers and Farmers Institutes. All
the great industries depending on
live stock, such as the stock yards,
creameries, packing houses and tran-
sportation companies are advocating
Its use. It Is a conservation subject .
of great importance, for with it can
be saved a large, part of our princip-
al crop. Nearly forty per cent of the
food elements of the corn crop of this
country are now wasted. By the use
of the silo tais could bo saved an.I by
so doing, hundreds of millions of dol-
lars could be added to our National
wtalth. The corn forage which an-
nually goes to waste in this country
is often referred to as the "Billion
Dollar Waste." Is It any wonder we
are complaining of the high cost nt
In the past eleven years the great
! stock industry of the United States
j in comparison witn our population,
has been showing a decline. This
i (ondition has been largely brought^
about by the rise in price of all kinds
of stock foods and has driven many
I men out of the stock business and
discouraged others from going in-^
I with the silo the cost of producing
stock and stock products can Ue great-
ly lowered. Experiments have shown
that by the use of the silo in place
of the old feeding methods, butter
can be produced from 9 to 10c per
liound cheaper and a saving made on
the production of beef from $1.50 to
$2.00 per hundred pounds. As the
largest part of our food comes from,
live stock it is plain to see the rela-
tion of the silo to our national food
i supply. ;
i Silage can be made from nearly
| all kinds of farm forage and is a good_
j and cheap ration for horses, cattle,
! sheep, swine and chickens. It require
| little storage space, is a labor saving
j device, doublies the value of the corn

least., but we have had visions of how this staff would
have protected us in our old age; how it would have
aelped us along cur weary way, and how, when the path-
way of life would havu to be traveled by tottering tteps.
that this strong friend would assist us in missing the
stones along the way. It has served us well in the past,
and like the tree in the old poem, we would wish to keep
it out of sacriligous hands now. it is no easy matter to
part with this old friend , and did the micreant who car-
ried it off know of the affection we held for this dumb
assistant we are sure he would return it. There are ties
that bind re,* blooded men to things inanimate, and there
are -sentiments that are not always easily under-tood by
fellows who carry off other people'* property, and so we
doubt that any appeal that might be made would have
much effect, but if the fellow who taken away that whlcn
we have considered a necessary adjunct to the future will
return the same we will forgive him. We despair at the
idea of going through life without having our old friend
by our side. New friends are not easily made, and we
would much prefer to have the old one at our side, rat.i-
er than take chances upon depending upon a new one.
When the .-boulder stoops with the burden of the years,
when the hair becomes whitened wit.i the frost9 of many
autumn#, and the palsied and trembling arm needs as-
sistance, and when the furrows of care make deep lines
upon the brow, the things whlcn come to every mortal,
we know that we will need this staff to help us on our
way. Bring back our cane. Come in and carry off the
shooting stick or anything else we have, but let us have
back the best friend we ever had.

with. Some people have a good deal of patience, an.,
many a good man has submitted to sland r ana vitupera-
tion rather than become mixed up with people in a dis-
cussion that only resulted in danger of infection. The

When Senator Charles Barrett stated a few days
ngo that tho capital of this state should cost not less
than J2,500,000 '.ie made a suggestion that will meet
with the approval of a majority ot the people of this
state. We have always believed that the people of this
state were willing to build their own capital, and that
they wanted it to be a magtiiflclent structure, fitted in
every way to suit the neccessitles of that sate, and for
that reason have never said much aliout this question.
