People came by hundreds and
(thousands. They came In automo-
biles and by train loads. By Mon
day noon Oklahoma City's hotels and
rooming houses were tilled to over-
drawing; by Tuesday morning a de-
mand had to be made upon citizens
to open their homes to accommodate
the many who came and were unable
to secure rooms at the hotels Thou-
sands drove in in automobiles and
the streets were crowded to the limits
with parked cars which the many
garages could not handle.
The parade, Monday afternoon, was
the greatest affair of the kind ever
^tilled off. There wus noi one, but
half a dozen parades. Tne great
indice foiTe of Oklahoma City was
•aable to cope with or handle the
eveut Once started it had to do
the best it could. So many were the
cars that it took hours for the pro-
cession to pass a given point—and
■every car was loaded with enthus-
iastic good roaders. Then there were
tbo bands, a round dozen of them
mid each playing its best and loud-
The first session of the convention
■was held Tuesday morning and the
•great auditorium, with a seating
capacity of six thousand, was filled
U> standing room. Never boforo was
there such a scene. Never before,
anywhere, any time, has there been
assembled in one city such a crowd
of good road boosters. And, best of
aJI, the great majority of these men
•were farmers and business men of
the small cities and towns.
For two hours, while the thou-
sands were being seated, half a dozen
bonds took turns In keeping the air
ailed with stirring music. Then the
meeting was called to order, and,
•when Col. W. H. (Coin) Harvey, the
man who first conceived the Ozark
Trails and who was responsible for
this immense meeting, was intro-
duced the crowd went wild. It was
a great ovation* to a great and do-
Colonel Harvey, anticipating the
magnitude of the crowd, to some ex-
■lent, had caused his speech to be
printed and copies were distributed
<to all. Therefore he dispensed with
a speech but introduced M. 1). Light-
loot of Missouri as chairman of the
•meeting. There were addressos of

eloquent speakers from Missouri.

On Wednesday the question of the
next meeting place came up for dis-
cussion; Jonesboro, Ark ; Amarillo.
Tex., and Tulsa, Okla., being con-
testants. Tulsa withdrew in favor of
Amarillo with an ^tdjourued meeting
to be held in May at Jonesboro.
Tulsa’s idea in withdrawing was that

The .final inspection and official lo-
cation of the trail will be made the
first of next June. At that time cer-

spectors will traverse all the pro-

the official route will be designated.
In order to hold the present mark-

the Methodist church. The pastor
preached on “Christian Stewardship”
and many were aroused to their
sense of responsibility and privilege.
The sermon at night on “The New
Birth" brought deep conviction on a
lot of people and the church was
crowded to its full capacity. Next
Sunday morning Rev* Morrison will
preach on “The Four Great Corner
Stones" and another evangelistic ser-
mon at night. Don’t come to the
Methodist church if you don’t want
to hear the truth.

If there were a royal road In farm-
ing it would be an easy way to go.
If it were possible to do a certain
way, at a certain time, in a certain
manner under all conditions, the "ad-
visers” would not meet with so many
difficulties. They could call a man
down when he failed to make good
with the advice given. #
But there is no royal road in farm-
Thcre are many factors over
which farmers have no control.
I While the personal factor with farm-
ers is always important, others, such
as the weather, markets, insects, dis-
eases and other misfortunes, must be
Every farm is a problem for the
manager. It has problems that are
peculiar, that require special plan-
ning. special work, perhaps, that
would not be required on adjoining
farms. For this reason, every man-
ager must study his own farm and
become familiar with its problems.
In doing this, he will see the op-
portunities for making the farm
profitable and for building a home
while it is farmed.
This does not mean that one is to
confine his study and attention to
his own farm. A progressive man-
ager will make use of every possible
source of information that will help
him solve the problems on his own
farm. The solutions others have
found may help him solve his own.
Perhaps a solution to some difficult
problem on his neighbor’s farm, with
some modifications, may be applica-
ble to his farm. The experience of

Much of the prosperity was ab-
sorbed earlier in the season by debts
of longer or shorter standing, but
such debts for the most pari have all
been paid for weeks. And still there
is a big surplus of money left, with
much cotton and other stuff yet to
sell. The average man of the south-
west is not bothering about where he
is to get money to meet necessary
obligations; his concern, rather,
seems to be what to do with the sur-
plus he has beeu unaccustomed to
having to dispose of.
What ah opportunity it is, such
as cornea only occasionally in one’s
lifetime. To be expecting no more
than usual— and that little enough
and to have laid one’s plans accord-
ingly, and almost without warning
to have dumped into one’s lap plenty
to satisfy every contemplated need
and in addition an unheard-of sur-
plus. How long we have wanted to
build a new barn, or even a shed.
To get a windmill and pump, a gaso-
line engine, a new mower, a binder,
a plow of some sort How the house
has needed painnng, new screens,
new paper, a new floor to the porch,
a new fire-place. The rugs are
worn or we have had none. The
furniture Is old und scratched and
scant. There are few books in the
home—few papers and magazines.
The old kitchen stove has u door
broken off and the fire-box is burnt
out. The kitchen utensils are worn
out and scarce and when one is in
use the good housewife has need of
it a dozen times for something else.
But what’s the use of going on
enumerating the wants about the
place—we couldn’t name them all
We’ve needed them so long, or we’ve
been promising them for years. The
big question is. shall we get them-
now that we can?
A few months from now our pros-
perity may have dissolved—squan-
dered. Myriad temptations to spend
It on that we need least or not at
all assail us on every hand. Or this
marvelous prosperity may be made
permanent by wise investment in that
which will make work easier and
more efficient and life more worth

The Hack ward Child.
When we speak of backward chil-
dren we don’t necessarily mean half-
wits, but we mean those children
who are slow to catch on, and who
are not’as quick in learning things as
their companions. Many of the city
schools are watching this great need
and have prepared for it by locating I
special schools, with special teachers,
in various sections of the city.
It is better to try to give special I
aid to the backward boy or girl in (
the borne than it is to have the teacn-
er finish them by forcing them ahead
in their classes, too much of this
is being done in our graded schools.
Sir Isaac Newton, the great physicist,
and discoverer of our laws of gravi-
tation, was himself a dull, backward
boy in school. Other of our great
men and women were poor students
in their earlier years, and had to
struggle to keep abreast with their
classes. They did not give up. They
did not fall and finally drop out al
together. Their parents spurred
them on, patient teachers took them
in charge and explained • more fully
and carefully their tasks and by per-
severance they won.
It isn’t a disgrace to have a back-
ward child for your own. Rather, it
is a privilege, if you help It to grasp
life’s lessons and learn life more
fully If you happen to have a child
that is slow to learn you know it and
should go to Its teacher and explain
the situation fully, tell her how
much you are doing to try to advance
the child and she will then know-
how to co-operate properly with you,
otherwise, you are both working at a
great disadvantage in not knowing j
how much and what the other is do-

r—don’t let him go, and
