The Tribune-Profress ia authorized to
make the following announcements,
subject to the Democratic Primal y,
Tnceday, August 6, 1918:
JUDGE J. B. A. ROBERTSON
For Congress, Seventh District
J. V. McCLINTIC
Did the peat hot days make
you think of the good old winter
time? If you don’t get your coal
now you may wish for the good
old summer time before the com-
ing winter is oyer.
Don't give up the ship. Tbe
weather conditions are putting
you to a war test. This test will
prove just what kind of a soldier
yon are. What would the war
and sacrifice be to you if crop
conditions were the best? Your
metal as a civilian soldier would
not be proven; you could meet
the different fund campaigns with
a smile. Really, would you have
done so if conditions were differ-
ent? We know that crop condi-
tions at this time are not flatter-
ing, but honestly, things could be
worse. Get yourself in a frame
of mind to appreciate even the
small things and the greater will
come to your share. Do your best;
no one can do more.

Corner Stone Laid.
The corner stone of the new
brick church at Rainy Mountain
Indian Mission was laid last Sun-
day. Many white people from
Mountain View and surrounding
country atteuded the services.
Rev. G. W, Hicks and wife of
Calumet, who had charge of the
mission over twenty years ago,
were present and Rev. Hicka as-
sisted Rev. H. H. Clouse in the
services. The Indians, through
the work of these missionaries,
have accomplished much along
the wav of religious work, and
they are proud of the new church
now being built to replace the

Another Call to Colors.
Adjutant General Crowder has
issued a call for fifty white Kiowa
county registrants, Class 1, to en-
tiain sometime between July 22
and 27. The county exemption
board have mailed notices to a
sufficent number to insure filling
This call will include some farm

With this issue of the Tribune-
Progress the $1.00 per year price
is abandoned and from the first
day of July the price will be $1.50
per year. We have endeavored
to maintain the $1.00 price at a
losing game in the hope that pa-
per prices would get low enough
to allow us to break even. Nearly
every other paper has advanced.
We know that the Tribune Prog-
ress has been worth more and
that we did not have to keep the
price down to retain our list, but
we felt that the people were en-
titled to a low price if it could be
held and let us break even. But
it is impossible to do so. On
July 1 the government declares a
higher postal rate on all period-
icals and newspapers, paper con-
tinues to advance, ink is higher-
in fact, the paper is dirt cheap at
From July 1 to August 1 those
living in Kiowa, Washita and
Caddo counties the subscription
price will be $1.00 per year in
advauce, back subscriptions to be
paid up and one year in advance.
The onlv reason this can be done
is that the postal rate will not be
so high in these three counties.
Now is the time to get in on the
$1.00 rate. The new postal rate
is on the zone system and in-
creases with distance.
The Oklahoman advances July
1 from $7.50 to $9.00 per year;
Sunday papers will cost 8 cents
instead of 5 cents.
It is becoming necessary that
everyone keep posted on new
government orders, and the Tri-
bune-Progress keeps abreast of
the times. Ohe issue of the pa-
per may be worth more than the
price of a year's subscription.
Employ County Agent.
Chairman of the County Com-
missioners, C. W. Foster, was in
Hobart Tuesday, meeting with
the other members of the board
in regard to letting some bridge
contracts and taking up the mat-
ter of employing a new couDty
agent. Contracts were let to the
Oklahoma Bridge Co., for $8499,

is too hot for much activity. Will
say that Julia Wanzor lost two
goslings and thinks they have
been stolen. Well maybe they
will grow up to be some of those
“pop o-ganders" that we have
heard so much about.

ington that no hotel or bublic
eating place shall advertise the
days or routine in which this
service proceeds, for it would
focus attention of the consumers
on these days and increase con-
sumption of beef. Every patri-
otic eating place is expected to
comply at once on a voluntary
basis. Yours truly,
